  1. Here's a link to a review with video of the 1701Ds: http://trekmovie.com/2009/06/21/the-collec...erprise-d-toys/
  2. Yeah, you keep rewriting history to massage your ego. They were prototypes. Shocker asked for critiques. Critiques were given. Changes were made. Don't be angry now because you didn't participate in the process and instead chose to pretend to like something which you really didn't. Were you afraid of being called a "Hater" if you gave your real opinion on the prototypes?
  3. I think you're confusing us. I never said the new figures weren't an improvement. Wow, yeah, those are awful. (SWH probably blocked them from his memory, and that's why he didn't notice the changes. Some sort of post traumatic stress, or something.) Good to see that you have developed a sense of humor and can post these awful pics now. I remember when you first posted those, and everyone was calling it Chick Tracy. (Everyone except WWH, of course. If you had listened to him, look at what you'd be stuck with, lol.) Anyhow I'm happy to see that you've been making the changes to your product and the way you conduct business that people have been telling you to. Also happy that you have come back here. Don't be so thin-skinned this time and run away again when the conversation isn't entirely to your liking.
  4. Wow, I was sort of half joking, but you really are jealous of SWH! SWH and others have suggested improvements, and Geoff has listened to them. Everyone is working together to make better toys. And now you're telling them not to discuss other things that need improvement. You're mocking him for doing what has proven successful in the past. That's odd behavior. Please relax, wwh. You are, without a doubt, Geoff's #1 fan. Even if/when Geoff incorporates the latest suggestions of SWH into his figures, no one will ever argue against your very special place among Shocker fandom.
  5. Yeah, here's a link. This is where Geoff's faisco at CBR started. It's a long thread and the pertinent information is many pages into it, so it''l take some digging. Happy reading: http://forums.comicbookresources.com/showt...048#post7948048 WWH, go back and reread this thread, if you would please. There were no personal attacks on other posters until you came into it. Then when people defended themselves against your personal attacks, you do the whole "let's just talk about the toys" routine. You have derailed this thread. You really do come off as jealous of SWH for having had such an enormous impact on the success of Shocker Toys. From the incorporation of so many of his suggestions to improve the product, to changing how they treat customers because of him pointing out shortcomings, to just keeping their name in the "news," Shocker Toys has improved greatly because of SWH, at least in part. And what have you done, WWH? Your uncritical praise for everything and anything Shocker related has not led to any improvements, either in product or service. Your histrionics on message boards have only reinforced the old Shocker image of being unable to take even the mildest of criticism. I know you take being Geoff's #1 fan very seriously, but what you are doing isn't helping. You have hurt the company and the man that you say you love so much. Shocker Toys appears to have left their troubled past behavior behind. Maybe you ought to do the same.
  6. Speaking of letting things go, do you have to follow SWH everywhere he posts just to attack him personally for having an opinion that isn't your own? How many sites have you followed him to? Or are you not allowed to stop because it's part of the arrangement you and Geoff have? (You know, the one where he gives you free stuff for you going around the internet making personal attacks on anyone who dares to not have a positive opinion of Shocker Toys/ Geoff Beckett. Sure you'll deny this, but it was already established last year in the CBR YABS Rick Olney thread. You remember attacking Gail Simone, whose board you were on, for having not responded positively to Geoff's phony legal threats, don't you?) If that arrangement has concluded, why not just let people express their own opinions without making everything personal? If you had just left off your first few paragraphs attacking SWH, you'd be presenting your opinion more effectively, instead of coming off as a shill for the company.
  7. At TRU.com, you can get 2 HKs for only $9.99: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3335515 The sale applies to the A-10 Warthogs, too: http://www.toysrus.com/searchHandler/index...mp;type=trigger
  8. Since no one asked, or probably cares, here is my completely biased, but attempting to be fair, assessment of the state of Shocker Toys. The Good: Geoff finally put out some product, and people are generally pleased with it. That's all most anyone is going to care about. Geoff has mostly stayed off the internet. He hasn't resorted to the spamming of his past. He hasn't engaged in any epic arguments lately. That's a definite improvement. His non-presence is a much larger asset than his presence. He seems to have finally learned to let his product speak for itself. The Bad: Geoff still needs to pay off prior debts. This is a big one. Geoff needs to announce the cancellation of the Gwar, WWTBASH, and other lines that have been on the shelf forever, or he needs to get them out soon. He needs to refund any preorder money he got for his announced and super delayed lines now, even if he still has plans to make them. It's been too long. Do it as a sign of good faith. Geoff is still promising more than he can deliver. Why talk about series 3 of Indie Spotlight when series 1 has just barely made it out? Why keep stringing along posters at his forum with promises of making figures of characters they create for over three years now? Accept growth at a reality based pace. Don't promise what can't be delivered in any sort of reasonable time frame. Don't say you are working on acquiring a license just because someone asks about it (e.g. LoEG). Geoff is still lying. So there may be a problem with some Scuds breaking. Don't try to hide it. Don't try to cover it up. Just deal with it. Geoff hasn't apologized for some terrible things he has said about a lot of people and some terrible things he has done. He owes Robert Kirkman, Gail Simone, Jonah Weiland, Bobbi Boyd, comic shop owners across America, and probably others, public and sincere apologies. Some free advice for Geoff: Don't start taking pre-orders for product until it's on a boat on it's way to you. Doing so in the past has contributed greatly to your reputation as a liar. Stay off message boards. You come off as a jerk. Use whatever money you are making off of Indie Spotlight series 1 to pay the people you've used, in the worst sense of the word, to get them made. This includes your web designers. This includes the "interns" and others you've failed to compensate. If this means that you don't have enough money to start manufacturing series 2, so be it. Raise the money through other means. If it is through pre-orders, be upfront about it. People have a right to know if they are helping to finance your company through their preorder money. Otherwise, you are scamming them. You don't need to be a Hasbro or Mattel to be successful, so stop pretending like you're bigger and more influential than you are. Your stuff doesn't need to be in Toys R Us stores. Stop posing. Respect is earned over time, not something that you can simply demand. No more threats and phony legal notices in an attempt to squash any and all negative publicity. It makes you look stupid when you threaten internet posters with calling the FTC because they think a toy of yours is ugly. Grow thicker skin. No more scams. No sending out mass emails to comic shops pretending to be customers wanting your product. You've finally got something to sell. Let it sell on its merits rather than your fishy marketing.
  9. Classic. Don't address any actual point I bring up. Just attack my argument by questioning my motives. And you are calling me a troll? Instead of name calling, why not point out things in particular that I posted that you have an issue with. Then, we can have a discussion about issues. Like, I don't think it's cool to sign up at the Shocker forum under different names to post things just to stir up trouble, just to hide insults of Geoff within the first letters of each word of a post or whatever. You know, like you have done ,Doom Saber, aka Gen Officious Suxorz. What's your justification for doing that? This is you, isn't it? From here, for context: http://forums.comicbookresources.com/showt...1&page=3294 Post # 49405 Going by other posts of yours at CBR talking about Gen officious suxorz' posts, you were once sort of proud of what you were doing. It seems that you now feel guilty for it. And now, you seem to be projecting that guilt onto others, like myself.
  10. You are mixing the posts and points of different people to make your argument. That is just silly. Would it be appropriate for me to intertwine wwh quotes with yours to make a point against what you are trying to get across? The progression of your argument is fundamentally flawed because of this. I have never said that I was attempting to get anyone to not buy Geoff's product. You've conflated what I posted with what another person posted. I said I wanted to present information that would allow people to make their own decision. But you've lumped in what I have said with what others have said because to you it's all sort of, kind of, similar. It's then an easy jump for you to label all of "us" as a "bloody scary" hive mind with a nefarious, single minded purpose. How about instead, address the people you disagree with as individuals? We aren't all saying the same thing. If you have a problem with a poster(s), why indict the whole thread? You are incorrect to say that only the direct victim of a crime can point out that a crime has happened. That is silly too. Whether or not Geoff will actually be held criminally liable for anything, does not mean that what he has done isn't immoral, unethical, or just plain wrong. Say a group of people are going to a party. Bill says he is getting a ride home with Tom. Jack says Tom has a history of drinking and driving. No, Tom has never been arrested for it. Bobby says he has seen Tom do the same thing. Are Jack and Booby participating in character assassination? Does Tom not having been arrested excuse his behavior? Jack telling the cops about Tom's past won't get Tom arrested. Tom may not ever drink and drive again. But, telling Bill about it may get Bill to find a safer ride home, or maybe even a safer ride for himself and Tom. Telling Bill about it allows him to make an informed decision. Like I said before; I am not trying to ruin anyone. Geoff being a scumbag is absolutely sound grounds for what I am doing here.
  11. I never implied that you were a shockpuppet, Doom Saber. You misunderstood what I wrote. Maybe clean up what you sloppily posted and others can read for themselves what I did indeed post.
