Do you want a Hasbro 12'' scale forum?

Sure that's a great Idea Sir Steve!! It's a vastly different line, then the regular figures. And I know I am beating a dead horse here, but how about a chatroom as well? :D

The Saga forum seems very busy, it would be nice to not have to dig thru the section looking for a 12" thread.

I realize the forum won't be busy compared to the other ones, but it would be better organized that way. :)

I voted "Yes" as well.

1) 12" come out in waves about once a quarter (or less often) and then there's only about 3 of them (and maybe some exclusives)

> - the threads get buried and stuff that's been discussed gets brought up again all over again.

2) 12" discussion revolves a lot around "wish lists" since their waves are fewer and further in between.

>- I'd say it's almost all been 'wished for' before, but if something new comes up - like a baby clone in a tank for a 6", all the people interested in discussing it will have a few threads to look into and are more likely to stumble across the idea and comment on it, than those sorting through a million vehicle, playset, 3 3/4", roleplay, and other item posts.

3) It will be a small community, but a good one. Probably a positive one too, since mainly people interested in buying the 12" will go there.

>- There will be zero to no "downer commentary" about why someone doesn't buy the 12". By default, if they're not interested in it, they won't even go in the forum except in rare cases.

Therefore I support the 12" forum. Hopefully I'll see you all there!

Spread the word to vote on this poll so our cries for this 12" section (http://www.sirstevesguide.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=6916) finally go answered. :D

I voted yes..

I collect the 12" figures, about as much as the 6" figures, but my son keeps opening them.. He leaves the 12" ones alone.

With a forum on 12" figures I can give others insight on picking up the Aurra Sing & C3PO masterpiece figures at the Borders bookstore for $20.. yup, I said $20..

It would also be nice to hear about other collections.. seems everyone has certain things that other people would love to have. I for one would love to have one of those R2 coolers..

than and a good deal on some trooper armor.. mmmmm.. empire.. Dressed in Rebel gear at C-2 but I cant wait to defect.. Just cant seem to save up that amount of cash for the armor.. ( that and I think my wife would kill me... ) IF SHE ONLY KNEW THE POWER OF THE DARK SIDE!!

enough! back to the topic. 12" figures! YES!! BRING IT ON!

Yes, absolutly... the 12" inch threads do keep getting buried, and when people can't find them they just start new ones, which clogs up Saga some more... 'Sides, if we can have a PlaySkool forum, why not a 12" inch one? :)

I voted yes, it's a great idea for collectors to discuss upcoming 12" figures. We will get to discuss exclusives, where they are going and what could be done to improve on them.

06-12-2002, 03:45 PM
Absolutely. It's time to give the "big brothers" of our plastic dreams the spotlight they so richly deserve.

Awesome Idea!!!!!!:cool:

I wouldn't personally have any use for a 12" forum, as I don't collect the 12" line. However, I voted "Yes" because then the Saga forum wouldn't get so cluttered up with posts about 12" figures that I don't care about. :)

The only reason I voted yes is because there was no "*&@% ^$#)*^ %^&$#*& yes!!" option!

I have only in the past 3 years or so started collecting the 12". But they are my favorites now.

Yes! I'm surprised that the question even has to be asked. There is a separate forum for the cancelled MM line and one for the Playskool line which debuted two months ago. Why the 12" line has been ignored is beyond me.

Well actually, the Playskool forum seems to have been removed.

The MM forum was created because the line has gone "vintage" like Kenner and because Hasbro is restarting it, plus it has a core following.

Playskool didn't work out, not enough discussion was had so its threads were put into Saga... or was it OTHER? I forgot which.

Oh heck yeah. The prospect of a dedicated 12" SW forum is the only reason I signed up a couple weeks ago. There's hardly any room for SW talk on the 12" GIJoe/military forums I haunt and equally tight space in 3 3/4" forums. Discussion can get just as involved as any other aspect of collecting and I think once threads get going they may detract from those host boards.

There's a ton of stuff to be shared, like the art of the body swap, head swaps, hand swaps, ect. that the average 3 3/4" collector delving into the 12" realm may never have thought of. As long as people can cast off the belief that 12" figures are "dolls" for lonely middle aged men, there’ll be room for a place to learn more.

If you build it, they will come...

Who voted no? Only one person did? I voted yes....
Who could it be......
