This is the stupidest thread ever. I'm disappointed in everyone who has made a post since my last post.

Including me.

But this post was genius:

I said it would happen right after I banned you, and it would come from someone other than you (which was kind of a cheat on my part, since you were banned). So this is a little later than I expected, and not really as satisfying as I was thinking it would be, and I didn't even get to use the "I'm glad we had this talk" music like I wanted to. Probably if it came from IVhorseman or somebody I'd be a lot more contented. (My bet was that it'd be Natalya, but she's kind of a ringer.)


I do feel like you've been a total asshole in this thread and I am disappointed in you. I mean I know you do this shit on purpose because you seem to have a sort of chaotic-neutral sense of humour but at times (such as right now) it becomes tedious and makes you look like a fucking idiot.

I did come very close to saying something at the banning.
But generally when I have the option to walk into a shit storm I usually don't.

I was being serious and looking for opinions.

I don't always walk into shitstorms
But when I do, I usually don't.




Yes Zuppon, if you actually subscribe to that logic, you're racist.

I think this is a racist way of saying that there are good and bad people in every race, sexual orientation, gender and culture.

In hindsight, yeah, that kind of went off the rails, not really sure what happened there. I thought I could turn it into something that'd be more entertaining for everybody but instead I just turned into an asshole and a bully for a couple of days.

Indeed, such as the Boondocks animated series having terms such as "el nigre Moment" and "el nigre technology".

and this is why we don't bring these things up if we'd rather not see the idiotic side of each other.

Back on topic:
The one thing I don't like about the Friends line is the lack of articulation. Shoulders, neck, and waist, and that's it? Ludicrous.
But I do like the fact that the heads can be transplanted onto a regular minifig with few proportional issues.
Give a minifig an inch, and he'll murder for a mile.

Can the heads be put on minifig torsos? I haven't gotten any, but I thought Friends had necks that were only a minifig accessory width, not a stud width. I know the hair and headpieces are mostly interchangeable.

I agree that I think it's strange how different they decided to make the articulation points. Legs connected at the ankles, not entirely compatible with regular figs. I could understand no wrist articulation, but other than that it just seems unnecessarily simplified.

I agree that the lack of articulation is strange. Could it be because of the expense of creating new molds?

I wonder if this will be changed for future sets?

I'm still waiting for someone to post a Fiend army on here...
