if people like TM or BC figures that's their decision and it doesn't make them any less of a collector.
It's their decision, you're right, I'm just advising them that they're money'd be better spent elsewhere.
has it ever occurred to you that people have a right to spend their money on things that they like and they don't have to feel obligated to buy Japanese figures just because you (who I might add, has admitted you don't know jack shit about the Japanese figures) say they're 'superior'?
Yes it has. It's occurred to me several times. But I don't want people to end up like me, wasting all of their money on the crappy figures :/ I don't want other people to end up with big collections of crap. I'd rather they end up with small collections of accurate, realistic figures. People can spend their money on what they want, I'm just trying to prevent bad investments.
they might be superior in your eyes but your taste doesn't dictate what someone else has to spend their money on.
This has nothing to do with my taste. Frankly there's no figures out there that suit my taste - which is why I've stopped collecting. This is about stopping people from wasting money.
I'm usually pretty chill but one thing I can't stand is elitist pricks. shut the skreeonk up.
If I could tell all the elitist pricks around here that pissed me off to shut up, it'd be a great place. Unfortunately, the board doesn't work that way and the elitist pricks are the ones dominating the board.
Alas though, I shall shut up. I've done my job.
