Here's a picture of Bob & me taken last week when he visited Snibston Discovery Museum for a look at my little custom display.

Unglaublich. :thumbsup: Awesome. :bow: Amazing. :thumbsup: Splendid. :bow:

Thanks to Bob for patiently answering everything and Eisenblut for arranging it all esp. typing it all up.

Read the thread while jet-lagged the other day and after a while the font colours kind of freaked me at the time, but now I'm feeling better and ready to be released back into society, and, wow, what a lot of stuff was revealed.

:space: transporter WIN
:enemy: base WIN
:enemy: single-seater aircraft/vehicle WIN etc.
:enemy: :muton: m-m-m-m-Mk.2 WIN.

Interesting on the prototypes too, not just the first-shot figures, but also on the :qforce: "vehicle", and Bob's revelation of the development items he's kept.

Very interesting to see how Marketing did so much of the liaison with BAF, thought there might have been a closer link to Bob. Also that there wasn't a reference source such as Osprey used for development of the figures.

As he produced the special blueprint for the Roboskull I should have rephrased that damn hastily written question about bios and 'schematics' in general. Maybe he did other blueprints but not the bios if you see what I mean.

And it was very nice to read about :skeletron: and :kraken: and the much overlooked but excellent :space: Triad Fighter. Also about :fforce: and :boffin: and their place in the various firmaments.

Oh, and the gothic cathedral inspiration for the :enemy: Roboskull made my decade :mrgreen:

Should have asked about those Wave 4 :zforce: sketches. Maybe one for next time.

BLOOD FOR THE BARON!

Absolutely stunning interview.
I dunno, I go away from the forum for a while, and behold - scoop of the decade!
So much to say re: Bob's revelations!
In particular the Skeletron being a Kraken skeleton. Not sure if I believe Bob's answer... perhaps a Red Shadow sleeper agent spreading rumours and disinformation.

That was a thoroughly enjoying read. The sealion vehicle is really nice, I dream of seeing a similar one for 12" Action Man (MAM).
