The Truth. in Off Topic by MrMonocle   
Friday, February 1, 2019
   [Edit]
Hello all. An accusation has been made against me that I have harassed a fellow Realmer into leaving the site. I am writing this to set the record straight. This accusation is untrue. I was surfing the Realm on Jan 14, 2019, when I came across the work of ACCustomFigures. Specifically, I was admiring his Into the Spider-verse Mile Morales that he had made. As I was doing so I noticed a small error in ACCF's figure description, in that he had described his figure as "screen accurate". Examining his photos, I realized that ACCF had in fact neglected to paint the silver lines present in the movie's costume.

Seeing as this could have been a mistake or oversight, and seeing that he had requested critiques on the figure I sent a comment complim...[See More]

You're all good brother. I know it doesn't matter, but after I saw his latest post, I looked back at previous submissions to find the harassment. I saw only two of his customs you commented on, and didn't see anything close to harassment. I even looked at some of your comments to others, and saw no other complaints.
I don't know if he saw it, but I tried explaining he mistook your comments as mean spirited when in fact in was only a personality conflict if anything. I know it doesn't mean anything, because I'm just a nobody, lol. But I think it was a misunderstanding if anything, but I don't think you did anything to purposely attack him.
Best of luck my friend!

(For anyone who doesn't know, I'm one of the few Regulators, which can deal with abuse reports. Yes, they're checked by real people, actions aren't automated.)

I saw one "abuse report" submitted for the original comment on the spiderman fig, and the report was clearly nonsense. Critique isn't abuse. I let the comment stay.

I don't know if other comments got deleted, you'll have to ask Captain Coder because I didn't see any reports after that. Sometimes I make decisions, like rejecting sub-par submissions to the Custom Showcase, and I'll see that a few days later the submission will be up anyway. I can't do anything about that. ...

On the contrary my friend, you went above and beyond to check into the truth behind the situation. There are many people who would not do that, and would simply believe the accuser. You showed a character and personal integrity that is both admirable and much needed these days. I appreciate your efforts to communicate with ACCF, it means a lot to me. I agree that there may have been a conflict, given the fickle nature of text communication. I wish we could have discussed the matter rather than what happened here. You are far from a nobody, you are a fellow Realmer, one I would be glad to call friend.

Exosquad Reboot????? in Off Topic by TheRubicon   
Thursday, September 20, 2018
   [Edit]
Hey all,
My childhood favorite, and to this day, was Exosquad. I lusted after the toys, watched the show every Saturday morning, and now as an adult, I dabble at making my own. I think this is a series that needs a Netflix style reboot ala Voltron. what say you?...[See More]

My brother was a huge fan of this show. It came out right about the time I got my driver's liscense and a girlfriend so I never paid it much attention. My brother saved up all his money from chores, birthdays, shoveling snow and mowing lawns to buy these toys. They were pretty bad a$$ especially for being in a smaller scale like that. It would be cool to see a reboot like Voltron. That show from what I remember dealt with some pretty mature themes for a kids show in the 90s. Would be cool to see redone. Check out the video by Toy Galaxy on YouTube: History of Exo Squad.

actually, I saw that little vid, they did okay for their segment time. but seriously. I think it's prime fodder. and you're absolutely right, it deal with some pretty mature themes for the target audience, and they did it well. not to mention a fresh line of toys would be killer...and likely cause my divorce! lol

I just saw your post. F yes!!! I want an ExoSquad reboot! I think if they kept the same tone as the original, but dropped the gnarly colors and hair styles that sort of make ExoSquad look like a late 80's punk scene, and also dropped the Neo-animal storyline, it would do well. Even as a kid I thought neoSapien raptors and crabs were dumb, but I loved the NeoMegas and the NeoLords. They made sense. That Galba...what a tricky little guy he was. I'm not sure how they should handle the evil Dr. that infected Nara Burns with that plant serum...I think it would have come into play in season 3 with the new alien race, but it was kind of hokey as well as his plant-minions. Also the action features like Kaz's ship doubling like a projection of his ship or something was hokey as well. I got ...
Is FigureRealm Dying? in Off Topic by MrMonocle

Anyone get the feeling that the site is slowly dying, what with the cancellation of any further contests, and lack of a real sense of community?...[See More]

I feel that way about the country in general. No sense of community, no one communicates effectively, everyone is off doing their own thing on youtube or facebook trying to rake in ad money or whatever. This site is more like a museum for customs and a repository of information.

Sometimes I leave a skeleton in my chair at the front desk and no one even notices lol

"Heaviest" figure "Playset" in Off Topic by mrbunny666   
Friday, April 21, 2017
   [Edit]
What are the heaviest playset / figures ever made?

Meaning, GI Joe made an Aircraft carrier.
In real life, it would weigh 94,000 tons

I have seen once a Unicron Prime.
Did they make a death star?

Voltron lions assembled weight?
Transformers devastator?
Other Transformers multi-figures assembled?

Again, not it's real life toy weight but "in-show" weight?...[See More]

Well, I imagine a model of the solar system to play with your space-theme figures would be the heaviest lol
