"I was gonna buy some Toyhax labels for Earthrise Auto-Whatsit, but since I'd be disrespecting the artistic expression of the designers, I think I'll just forget the whole thing."

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 06:41 AM)

Like, in general, not going into specific bands or covers. Because I could point out plenty of repainted toys I didn't like as much as the original, too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 06:39 AM)

Is a musician covering a song "fixing" it?

@  Nevermore : (17 May 2021 - 05:15 AM)

So, then, isn't redecoing or retooling an existing toy also "fixing" someone else's art?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 10:07 PM)

A toy is not on the same level as a piece of drawn art, true, but it is 100% an entertainment product.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 05:05 PM)

A toy is an object of utility, Comparing that to a piece of drawn art is grossly ignoring the difference between the two. Also, you didn't answer my questions. Try again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:25 PM)

Part of the difference is that those covers are primarily one person's art. Sure, you probably have an inker and a colorist, but the lines and composition are one person. A toy however is a team design at pretty much all levels.

@  Cyoti : (16 May 2021 - 03:52 PM)

toymaking is a collaborative process, you have to make compromises and factories are going to get things wrong

@  tigerhawk : (16 May 2021 - 03:43 PM)

Earthrise had a few holes, Runamuck's legs YIKES!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 03:37 PM)

I doubt that say, the designer for Kingdom Cheetor was happy about every bit of unpainted plastic on it.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:28 PM)

J Scott Campbell recently had his Spiderman cover "fixed" by someone online. A few weeks ago, someone on twitter "fixed" someone's Sonic the Hedgehog fan art where Sonic, Tails and Knuckles were drawn as humans. Both times and other times, the "fixer" gets called out and criticised as you shouldn't go around "fixing" someone else's art because its rude and disrespectful to the original artist. And I was thinking isn't "fixed your s*** for ya" exactly what toy customisers do?

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

Have you ever changed your car in any way whatsoever compared to the factory configuration, or are you leaving the designer's art unchanged in that case as well?

@  CORVUS : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

It's best not to ponder it too hard.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 04:16 AM)

Bass X0, I really wonder sometimes how you come up with these random tangents apropos of nothing.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:11 AM)

It's collaborative art.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 04:07 AM)

Toys are subject to budget constraints, so its not like customizing would ruin the designer's vision or whatever.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:38 AM)

Isn't customising a toy just "fixing other people's art"?

Yeah, my hybrid does that when idling or at low speeds. Otherwise it's almost completely silent.

@  ZakuConvoy : (13 May 2021 - 02:27 PM)

That might actually be a fake noise they make electric cars make so pedestrians can hear them. Some cars even let you pick out what noise they make.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 May 2021 - 11:20 AM)

Actually heard a car with that electric, scifi-hum to it. Made me realize that we kinda are living in the future...

@  tigerhawk : (13 May 2021 - 03:28 AM)

Nearly thirty Studio Series figs including the '86 line. "I won't touch that." I said a few years ago when deluxe wave 5 came to my store for a tenner each. My latest one' is 72 Starscream.

@  tigerhawk : (10 May 2021 - 02:56 AM)

The 1988 G1 line up could all have been done as Titan Master things, I figure the Pretenders could be done as Titan Master Drones and Prime Master shells.

ok so here's the dealio

 

im bored and it's been a few years since i last changed my display name and i kind of want to do that again

 

but idk what to

 

so uhhhhhhh post name ideas, along with avatars, and custom titles (if you want) for me to potentially use

 

and uhhhh later today i'll use my special powers (read: a random number generator) to pick a post from the thread at random and change my display name and stuff to whatever was in the post. (unless there wasn't a suggestion in the post, then i'll just reroll)

 

oh and for bonus fun i'll also use my special powers (read: a pick item from a list tool) to determine how long i wear the new display name and stuff for. i'll probably use 1 month (well, it'll have to be at least for a month but you know what i mean), 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, FOREVER (ok yeah NOT that one, im not a lunatic)

 

ok well

 

preemptive regret away

Change your avatar to a picture of a viola (the musical instrument) and then change your username to "The Talking Viola"

You have to stay in character while the name/avatar change is in effect, like giving your opinion on something and then saying "but what do I know, I'm just a talking viola."

Change your display name to A Newt. Then when the timer is up, your first post has to be "I got better."

Change your name to Cure Violet and rope some other people into becoming flower-based precures so you can start your own team.

I'm currently reading an old physical copy of side stories from the Rose of Versailles. I was going to suggest an avatar/title related to Lulu who appears there. I think she's Oscar's little niece or something. She has a very... Distinctive look and is a troublemaker, but also too smart for her own good.
Took a quick look and info on her is hard to come by, and I'm far too lazy to scour fan scanlations. (I'd take pics myself, but the manga's still at work).

change to a tree

Well this was a dumb post in a thread full of dumb posts, but the RNG picked post #6 and I am a woman tree of my word, so I've changed my avatar to a picture of a tree I found on Google and my name is now 'A Tree'.

 

The other tool I found picked '1 year' of the options for how long to keep this up for and I swear on my branches, I will not change my name back to 'Princess Viola' until a whole year has passed.

 

Also, I'm not forcing any more references about being a tree, they're really getting under my bark.
