I actually have the minutes from this year's meeting almost typed up and will post them later this evening.

 

I'm also working on the masterlist for mailing everyone. Should have that done soon.

 

Zod, we decided on CB and Golob specifically as mascots since they are both incorporated into the logo and we didn't want to change the logo. That's why everyone else is "dishonorably discharged."

 

In this year's pic, I'm the guy in the Razorback hat.

I came up with the shrill 'LALALALALALALALALALALALALA' to scream along with 'the patch' as a way to greet fellow members ala 'All Hail DOB!"

And I quote Gary (cmnderinchief) "and that saying is band" lol.

Does anyone remember if we voted on not saying LALALALALALA anymore? I guess we will wait until Adroq posts what we did.

So how does one join the CFB?

 

I remember asking if I could join last year when you guys started posting stuff about it, but no one ever said anything to me. :(

That was talked about to, it was voted the only way to be a member of CFB is to attend the con one time (or more).

Like Tupac said, "Keep ya head up". We all agreed that since CFB meets at the con and votes new characters in, CFB members need to attend one con at least.

It was decided (by people who did attend the '04 con) that LALALALA was indeed "banned". Anyone having issue with that needs to take it up with Cmdrinchief.

 

Should I post the minutes in this thread, or can we start a new CFB thread?

I'll be LALALALALALALAing til I DIE!!!!!

 

Sorry guys but this is getting upsetting. I was one of the very very few who tried to keep this alive after the con last year. It was like me and Tazz and Zod and CMdr and Card. I rolled with the change from DOG (defenders of Golobulus) to CFB. I rolled with the 3 characters chosen to be in the Hall of Lame. I'm rolling with Giraffe Leatherneck when there are far more worthy (though he should of gotten in eventually). This getting rid of the lalalalalalala is just too much. I can't wait til next year when I'll be at the show and this founder can have some kind of say. I'm not angry or dissing anyone. Just kind of sucks.

 

Please post the minutes here.

 

LALALALALLALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALAALLALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALLALALALALALLALALALAL!!!

Alright guys simmer down...lol

The lalalalalalal thing is pretty cool and even the eyepatch...even though the eyepatch thing is murder on my arm :). One thing people forgot to mention CFB was origianlly called CBF which was crystal ball forever. I came up with that while we were at the roundtable with Mastercollector. It was kinda of a hit on the All Hail Bulletman thing they do. We then turned it around to include all the crappy figures. We were thinking a legion of doom esque thing, thats where ole golobulus and raptor came in. Regardless of how we started we need to stay unified. So lets just either revote on the main character, keep both crystal ball and golobulus and then keep the lalalalala chant thing. There can be two official spokepersons for all I care.

I forgot about the cBf. If you read my first posts last year about the group I still used the CBF. lol!!!! Crystal Ball should be our main guy. I mean he looks like Vincent Price dressed as a gypsy and carries around a hypno-shield!!!! Golobulus was a snakeman though!!!! I would say though our group is to celebrate all the crappy figures and characters to come out of teh GI Joe universe these past 23 years! And theres alot.

 

I'd like to read the minutes and see what ideas were thrown out there as far as unifying and staying in contact and what we can do to have fun with this throughout the year instead of just the 2 weeks after the con. Maybe have a crappy angelfire hompage with Hall of Lamer profiles and pics. Make some crappy customs! or crappy T-shirts! or crappy dios!

 

Sorry if I was a little upset earlier, it just everything came off as 'you weren't there, so you have no say fellow founder' I couldn't go because of 2 reasons this year

 

a.) my girlfriend may have needed some financial help for her custody battle (which she didn't and as of April started making plans)

 

BUT

 

b.) one of my co-workers honeymoon was the same week as the show. We have a staff of 4 at my cigar bar, so when 1 is out the rest have to pick up the slack.

 

So forgive and forget and I'll try not to be bitter grumble grumble. I want to club to succeed and I want everyone on TNI to be involved!!!

I will def post the minutes tonight then when I get home from work, as they are on the laptop.

 

I was there at '04 too. I moved right after the con and life got exteremely hectic, otherwise I would have been on this board a lot more a year ago. As such, since I hung out more with TNI guys again this year (Card, Tazz, Cmdr and several others) I'll be spending a lot more time on this board.

 

I'm compliling last years mailing list with this one too so we can get a good master list made up.

 

Flint, we're not trying to upset anyone... the whole point of this thing is to everyone have a good time.

Now guys.....if you weren't there, you need to take heed from one of the Hasbro Roundtable attendees. The dude told the whole room he earns $12K a year. Card looks at me and says, "I have that much credit card debt!" I thought about it afterwards, and with the registration fee, hotel, drinking, eating, more drinking and buying Joe stuff, I spent more than 1/12th of this guys yearly income in three stinkin' days!!!

 

Just kidding of course guys......you know I wished you were there! Start the campaign to return now! 12 Months to go!!

# years in CFB

 

Thanks! Now, on to what we covered at the meeting

 

CFB 2005

 

Thanks to everyone who attended the Annual meeting of the Crappy Figure Brigade. As a reminder this year’s “Dishonorable Discharge� (formerly Inductee into the Hall of Shame) is Battle Corp Leatherneck, lovingly nicknamed “Leopard Pants Leatherneck.�

 

This year it was also decided upon to include vehicles, so we introduce the “Decommissioned Junkyard.� In order to catch up we nominated and then voted for four inductees. Nominees included Triple T Tank, Road Toad, Destro’s Dominator, & The Earthquake. For a full list of nominees, see the end of the newsletter. The four vehicles inducted, are the Cobra Pogo, Fort America, Ninja Lightning, and the Pile Driver.

 

After much discussion on several topics, the following were decided upon and need to be considered when nominating in future years.

 

· Figures and vehicles need to be at least 10 years old before they can be considered to vote on. Just because a mold is 20 years old does not mean we can consider a version of a character that has come out in the last year. We had a lot of discussion back and forth on this. Some felt that comic pack figures should be allowed because the molds are that old. However, the point of the CFB is to celebrate the 3 ¾� line much in the way the D.O.B. members celebrate their line. We felt that if we start including newer stuff it would be offensive to the Hasbro Design team, and that is NOT our purpose. We want to give Hasbro our full support and keep the line around as long as possible. If there is a recent figure or vehicle you feel should be nominated, wait the required amount of years and nominate it.

· Only single vehicles and figures can be nominated. You can’t nominate “the entire ninja force vehicle line� as one nomination, but you can nominate and in turn vote on each one separately.

· Voting only occurs at the con, by those present. If you cannot attend the con, get your nomination into someone who is going, so they can nominate for you.

· While narrowing down the nominees, you can vote on as many as you like until the final voting round.

· It was suggested that we start using “Roberts Rules�, where a member of the club nominates it and someone else has to second it.

· The official mascots of the CFB are our first two inductees; Crystal Ball and Golobulous.

 

Next year we would like each member attending the club to do some sort of Golobulous custom, much in the same way the 12�ers do with all the Bulletman stuff. What we want to do is alternate between our two mascots each year. If possible, and you live close enough to another CFB member maybe even getting a dio entered would be fantastic.

 

I have a list of CFB members from this year’s con. I will dig through my computer and find last year’s to create a current master list. I will email it out to everyone shortly. If you notice any of your own information that is missing or incorrect, please email it back to me.

 

Here is a list of all the nominees for this year’s figure:

Deep Six v.1

Deep Six v. with “Finback the dolphin�

Dog Fight

Cobra Commander v.4 (Red Face)

Ice Cream Soldier

Voltar

Bazooka v.3 (Fisherman Bazooka)

Robo Joe

Bulletproof

Payload

Cross Country v.2 (Redneck)

Skidmark

Darklon

Sneak Peak

Taurus

Big Brawler

Create A Cobra

Leatherneck v.3 (Leopard Pants)

 

It narrowed down to the following three:

Fisherman Bazooka

Redneck Cross Country

Leopard Pants Leatherneck

 

All losing nominees can be re-nominated next year.

 

Vehicle Nominees:

Battle Copters

Triple T Tank

Darklon’s Evader

Destro’s Dominator

Road Toad

Cobra Pogo

Buzz Boar

R.P.V.

Earthquake

Fort America

Apache

Liquidator

Ninja Lightning

Falcon Glider

Hammerhead

Battle Axe

Pile Driver

Septic Tank

 

Again, those vehicles not voted in this year are eligible for re-nomination next year.

 

The CFB was created at the 2004 convention after Brian Savage suggested in the club forum that the 3 ¾� collectors have a club similar to the 12 inch’s D.O.B. This club is not intended to slam, mock, or otherwise put down the Joe line, or offend other collectors. It is meant as a tongue in cheek way of celebrating some of the decisions made throughout the toy line that always made us wonder. CFB members love Joe and want to see the line prosper and continue for years to come.

 

If you have any questions, please contact any of the following people.

General Zod: President

Card: Acting Vice President for life

Cmdrinchief:(need exact title)

Tazzman:(need exact title)

Adroq: Secretary

It actually paid off to Im hearing from the higher ups my 90 day review is going to be excellent and Ive already got a handful of comments on my work. Im there wherever it is next year though for sure.

 

P.S Krypton does not suck...unless its cooch cooch, but thats totally off topic. ;)
