I think everyone needs to calm down a bit and smoke some of roguetiger's stash. I don't think any of Mad Joe's comments about G2G/Trigate were ment as inflamitory remarks. The word "Cheep" was intended to reflect the prices not the quality of work.
I've purchased custom parts from Keenan, Alyosha, and Trigate and the quality has always been exceptional. Some casts and materials are better than others but that is the way it goes. Do your own research and determine for your self if something is worth the price.
olocden, I know G2G was your baby and I do not blame you for being defensive. I just think its no harm no foul.

The problem I have with both sides of this argument is that you're arguing over toys. Granted, there's a childishness to any grown ass man who collects toys, but that's the fun of it. It brings out your inner child, which is an innocence that I miss from childhood, and part of what draws me back to simpler times. When toys were awesome, and ruled my freetime.
Each person is getting defensive about his/her own work. MJC got pissy when a GTG fan made a low-blow remark about his work, unprovoked. GTG got pissy when MJC made a snide remark about GTG, which was probably just defensive nature because someone was raining on his parade.
Come on, both "sides", you both do amazing work, and it only looks negative on both of you to go at each other like this. This is MJC's thread, part of posting is to show off your work and hear comments, both good and bad.
So what if you don't like yelling heads, do you have to be an ass about it? There are plenty of regular posed heads to buy, why dig at him?
The one thing I've learned from being in a creative field, is there's always egos, some deserved, and some not, but if someone's slightly cocky AND does good work, then okay, they could be more chill about it, but if your work is quality, then you sort of have a right in my mind to be somewhat proud of your work.

I have a request. We see what these heads look like when a skilled artist paints them, but could we see some unpainted samples? I'm pretty sure I couldn't make these look that good but I'd want to see what the base I was working with was.

Just posting in an interesting thread.
I'm a big fan of people casting and selling to other fans, but the price obviously have to be realistic compared to quality and competition.
My thoughts on these particular heads doesnt really matter, but I'm certanly not fan of the prices.

Hope all know I am not trying to get in a pissing match, just asking if it was a slam. Both here and other boards talking about this thread, I didnt say anything to slam, but the one thing that bothers me is letting another member call people out and nobody said anything, the part about being a troll, that really made me post. Up till that point everybody has the right to there opinions, and the way each person spends there money or sells there stuff up to them.
To get this back topic, i do like some of the heads and some not so much, some of them have a corps rework vibe to them, which isnt bad at all, not for what I would need, but if sculpted good work all the same.
MJC I am not knocking your stuff or slamming ya in any way,if something I said offended you,pm me and we can chat about it, As far the comments about calling others trolls just cuz they wont say hey great job, thats something no site needs. Agree to take both good and bad critts of your work, your prices and your rep.

Man here we go agin. I had the same problem with alys prices and you know what its there work let them charge what they want Aly has his fans that buy from him. tri gate/ GTG have theres MJC has his. all there work is good some not my taste some is . They are tring to give us the fans something new and diff to use on our toys.
If i like it and who ever dose and there the only ones who make it ill pay that price. just like selling customs you can charge what ever you want as long as someone will buy it. just like toys i have seen some toys go for crazy amounts. If thats the only place you can fined it then you pay it.
The problem comes in when ppl make a big deal out of whats said and take it to mean your bashing someone and spread it all over the net. Then everyone comes out of the woodwork as ppl will sing up for a site and not post for awhile but when the shit hits the fan everyone has to take sides as they might be friends with one side or the other or try to be neutral and calm everyone down.
The net is for everyone you can come and go as you please we have trolls, scalpers, active,& lurkers who just like to see the stuff but not say anthing. its a part of the beast of forums.
I collect joes and TF. i customize joes for me to make them the way i like . What i do is not for everyone. So i dont push it on anyone. I put my work up for all types of feedback and tips on how to make them better. The ppl that piss me off are the ones who dont want to hear bad feedback or you should try this or that.They want the "my shit is good and thats it" type of feedback.
I have learned that if you think you got slammed pm him and try to work it out instead of having it spill in the open board . unless you have no choice. im not god just a fan of the toys & customs some i like some i dont if i can i give tips on how to fix things if not i dont say anything.
Im not taking side just saying what i have seen & been through. most ppl know me from all over the net. i have friends and enemy's just like everyone else so take this the way you want. its not a slam to anyone.
