Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

You may want to let XM know that too, Grumpy. Only give me the cred for pointing BOTH of those links out.....the "thanks" can be a Storm statue
Grumpy is on it, he's XM's lead "forum marketing guru" LOL!!!

Who knows...XM showed their Star Wars stuff behind curtains at conventions (no cameras allowed)...they pride themselves on taking collector input, so I'm guessing that's why they do it. The lucky ones that get shown and asked for input need to respect their wishes for privacy, or it'll stop altogether (which is a bad thing, imo).
It's already stopped...unfortunately. But it's not an entirely bad thing. I remember the arguments in the first year of XM concerning Magneto and how there were too many cooks in the kitchen. Well...a select few have gottent their wish....

But, never fear, I have full confidence that the ADs at XM will continue cranking out hit after hit!

Just saying they are not the ONLY sponsor. The site existed before XM. But, that said, the main thing this site enjoys is the producers coming on. I am not saying piss off XM or any producer, sponsor or not.

Just odd that a piece they are soliciting and taking PO's for at the Warehouse party can't be shown. Pretty understandable why people would not know that is the case.

Not officially, that was on Early PO at the XM dinner/party.

Please XM take your time...how is it possible to make choices when you want every piece ???

I'm the one who posted the link, but I posted it bc I found it funny how people on SF were policing fellow posters when I, literally, googled and it was blatantly posted on SpecFiction's website for PO.

I respect and understand XM's position on wanting to keep designs under wraps. I also understand them wanting to be customer friendly and welcoming by giving sneak peaks. And I understand their super secret group that give constructive criticism.

I'm cool with all of that, really. I just posted the link bc if XM (and their fanbase) are serious about stopping the leaks, they should take the time to check google and their retailers instead of jumping on forum members.

The leaked image of White Magneto is still on Google and I saw a seller already posted up a sales post with that pic...
