Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
His backstory writes itself. He's an underappreciated special effects guy that is a master at his craft. He's looked down on, emotionally beaten down by the directors, writers, and actors who all see him as basically a lackey dork that knows computers. Somewhere along the line he snaps because in this day and age, he does the majority of the heavy lifting to make a movie great. (Especially apt considering the special effects/cgi dependent Hollywood we have now.)
I have been skipping the Icarus figures. I liked Uprising, but I wasn't worried about the Amiibo for them all.
The ones I probably most regret not being able to get at retail are Ike and Lucina, but that's just because I love those characters. At some point I'll probably be able to grab them, I just won't spent crazy prices for them.
