Nice signature picture/avatar.

It's up to you, but consider reducing it by 50% and see if makes a difference for you.

Isn’t anything to do with Arnie potentially political considering he was the governor of the 5th largest economy of the world and all? Once you’ve been a politician, how do you separate it? GubernatorFan! ;-)

I also reserve the right to change my username and branding as it was good enough for Phicen AKA TBLeague .

*just discovered emojis don’t work in the mobile version of this. Know my intent is loaded with winks.

brassco -- well, if that image exposes us to the wrath of hackers from a certain area, it would be great fun watching this forum crash and burn. I do hope we are too small fry to be noticed, considered a threat, and punished. Generally, you should consider another's possible perspective -- what if this is the fearless leader you voted for and someone wants to poke fun at him? The question is not about who is right and who is wrong, but whether this forum is the place to make such arguments (in the form of posts and images) and whether this would (a) offend and (b) lead to complications of any nature. I would err on the side of caution, and posting a potentially controversial image even to ask if it is unacceptable might be considered more questionable than cunning.

MarkEl -- you have every right to choose whatever moniker you want for whatever venue you choose to frequent. Just hard to get used to it. As for the Gubernator, he was Terminator (1, 2, whatever) long before he was governor of California, so such images are clearly in reference to the character and movies, and have nothing to do with politics. I was going to say something about the political aspects, but then remembered we are trying to keep them out... for a reason.

Good call on the political stuff.

There's not a faster way in the world to screw up a fun conversation that the injection of politics.

Those discussions have their places, but not here, me thinks.

Glad we agree. I am a firm believer in free speech and the right of people to express themselves, but unfortunately political, social, religious, etc. discourse these days has taken a turn for the worse with self-righteous assertions and recriminations. I would be the last person to want to censure anyone or edit or delete their work (whether I agree with it or not), so I am hoping members will exercise good judgment to begin with. And I know you were being a little facetious in the earlier post anyway.

As for emojis in mobile, you can report this in the technical issues sticky thread (I don't want to hijack this one), but my look through the settings failed to turn up anything useful so far.

Ephiane!

But how can the Monkey Shoulder not be smooth, when it boast that it is right on the bottle (not usually a good sign)!? For the record, it actually reviews pretty well, as being pretty good for it's price. And I am so ready for an entire figures and bottles thread. As long as we're all drinking while posting.

So glad to see you aboard!

Hi all, just thought I'd drop in and give it a try. I admit I'm not the most regular contributor over at OSW or really any board, as I tend to go in spurts and then life takes over. I've been modeling in some form for over 40 years, since my dad and I built that first 1/72 German sidecar together, and I was hooked! I primarily do WWII, and mostly German, with some Allied troops sprinkled in for variety, but the past few years I've been getting more into movie based figures, esp. with LOTR and some ancient warrior stuff which some of you may have seen. The past 10 years I was really into RC warbird flying (mostly in 1/7-1/10 scale), but haven't been doing much of that lately. My other passions are opera (which you now know about with my new thread!), and hockey (go Bruins!) (I used to play but I'm just too old and it hurts too much; just getting on the ice for stick and puck is a victory for me now).

So far the board looks good. It's a promising start.

hello fellow collectors! Nice to see you all around here, very promising for the forum!!!

Most of you guys know me from OSW or MWD, or instagram may be, my name's Alex, I'm a 37 years old kid, architect during the day, toy enthusiast at night lol...
I'm a big fan of scifi but also hollywood movies and marvel comic books, I grew up between dr jones and pr venkmann to make it short!

I got may be 60 figures, as I don't have room to expose them I build and unbuild them very often, using parts on new projects, most of my collection being kitbashes, some stay, some turn into something else after a while. I also treat myself with a few hot toys every year but with those crazy prices it's not what it used to be... I remember my first DX in its huuuuuge box, for less $ than a wonderwoman...

For that reason I also collect smaller figures, trying to not jump into 1/6 starwars, so having fun with blackseries and some shfiguarts...

Cheers!

Welcome again, blackpool! I see you have changed your avatar to another cool image. Like you, I build and unbuild some of my figures, and I have to consider spatial considerations when it comes to dioramas. And I think all of us feel the wallet concerns in this hobby. Which is all the more reason to showcase what you can do with what you already have. And you have done quite a lot.

When I made my very first post early this afternoon, my username was simply David. However, in a follow-up post to my request for tech assistance, GubernatorFan stated that he had edited my username to highwayman57, much to my delight. I just hadn't noticed that it was fixed when I made the post here! So I made a little mistake! Embarassed
