Save the survivors!

Postby sinchicken » 01 Sep 2009 05:14

Hey everyone,

If you are o-ring fans, stop in here and vote:

http://savethesurvivors.wetpaint.com/

The objective is to make it clear to the GIJCC and possibly Hasbro which molds we still want to see used in the future as exclusives and whatever else they come up with.

At the convention, fans were asked which ones they would still want if available. The purpose of the site is to make a definitive list in one place of what people want to see made again.

Some people have issues with the GIJCC but it is probably our best if not only place to get these figures again so why not communicate with them and try to help out?

Crazy! Why would they destroy the original moulds?

Apparently a lot of the molds are just decaying over time and becoming pitted and worn out. But in addition to that, they have to worry about paying for storage for the good ones.

I understand that things like that will happen, but it would be great to see some of the good ones used again.

Yeah, but why destroy them? They could take a leaf out of Palitoy's book and donate them to a museum.

I suppose the reason they haven't gone on to ebay is for fear of knock-offs being produced.
