However, These HT pieces are awesome and much better in person than pics. So many things could have been done to make this line a success. It is a shame we won't see fireball
I did email Gentle Giant on the subject of Fireball. So far no reply. I know they can be slow
Is it 100% they won't be making Fireball ?

I emailed them a couple weeks ago, nothing yet.

Call me inspired, so I went ahead and emailed GG as well. Takes but a couple of minutes and who knows... maybe they'll see that some of us are still on board.

I finally got my Lucky review posted. All photos were taken on my iPhone 6s plus. No flash, just the room and two small studio lights (cheap ones).

I still want to start a petition for fireball...
It is sad that one of the best of the group isn't being produced

Please do. I'd be your first sign up.

It's hard (impossible?) to post directly to their Facebook's front page. All uploaded fan pics get placed in the site's "background". STILL, I have seen some fan uploaded pics where their FB moderator responds. So might be worth responding and liking the uploaded post below to gain some attention in addition to a petition.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

This sucks. IMO, the best statue in the set. I loved the look. And since I am not rich, I cannot own them all, so this one was going to be the one I purchased.

How can they expect people to buy these if they STOPPED pushing this line as soon as the first one was released? And the fact that there is absolutely no lore, media, or anything associated with these characters is a huge detriment to this 500 unit ransom.

I am going to start a freakin petition if no one else does. This is so frustrating.

I guess this post was all a lie:

Have no illusions that that's not the seed of this line. That's what we call a premise. It's what you do with the premise that counts, and I think once you see us rolling out the storyline, you'll see what I mean. Some interesting opportunities have risen out of the recent unveiling, and I think we're going to be able to tell this story in a bigger fashion than any of us imagined at first.

If they wouldn't have delayed the line, pieces for so long it would have been way more successful. If they couldn't produce them the first two years after previewing them, they shouldn't have showed them that early. Collectors get aggravated after one year of waiting.They were also priced way too high.

I am going to see if I can set up a petition. I will post shortly if it works.
