I agree a poll is best. Maybe we should contact Joe Colton through AngelForge directly?

I'm a little leery of polls but it is still the best way for everyone to have their say on the next commission...

I asked Joe Colton about the AF parts and he said that in the end, once they were able to identify the origin of the various parts and after speaking with Krexx, Slayer and a few others, they worked toward returning the pieces to their rightful owners.  If the owners of those pieces would want to offer them up for casting and production, AF would work with them to get those pieces available to the community.

As for how best way to go about deciding the next commission, I'm with LIVEVIL in my feelings about polls yet it is probably the best way to go.

A quick side note: I purchased a couple of the blank female combos and a couple of the IG heads; very nice Smile

Poll I suppose

Man, Angel Forge has two things in the way of o-ring body parts: Jack and shit. And Jack left town.

Is there a bare torso planned (Smaller than Road Pig) to go with a Rocky head?

This is one of my wishes along with the 3 piece suit.

It would be optimal for a Rambo custom in addition to the head. Yet would be utilitarian enough for many other customs

Of course it would HAVE to be colored to go with post-2000 skin tone

If this is true, then we are back to square one, as none of the "owners" seem to be willing to offer these pieces anymore anywhere and they refuse to give us a reason. All the asking, begging, pleading, and reasoning has once again been a waste of our time. That really pisses me the fuck off... Evil or Very Mad

Someone talked with Slayer Dave? I'd really like to hear his opinions on the subject. And if Krexx owns any parts, maybe we can work something out with him? He's done a fantastic job sculpting new parts, and I can't imagine he wouldn't want to share more.

On my last order from the Angel Forge, one of the Torsos they sent was the wrong one.  I notified them and told them I am a pretty big O-Ring customizer, and they told me they would send me some extra O-Ring stuff they had laying around.  
Here are pics of the incorrect O-Ring Torso they sent.  When they sent the replacement, they also included two additional Torsos.  I think one of these would be suitable for a Rambo or Rocky custom, but they would have to be modified because I think the shoulders are for the New Sculpt Era.

Ok guys. Sorry for the delay.

1)Here is the list we have compiled so far. Let me know if it is good as it is or if you would like to add something else.


  1. Dreadhead troop head
  2. 3/2 piece suit torso and waist
  3. Rocky: Head, torso and waist
  4. "Unhelmeted" head set (number of heads to be determined)
  5. Generic male tactical vest torso
  6. Mutated Cobra Commander: Head, torso, waist and lower legs
  7. Krake: Head, torso and waist
  8. Modified Viper helmet with tactical vest: Head, torso and waist
  9. Toxo-Viper helmet: head
  10. Stalker head sculpt
  11. Michael Dudikoff head sculpt
  12. Steve James(American Ninja) head sculpt
  13. COIL trooper head that looked helmeted
  14. Billy head
  15. Cool Breeze head
  16. Officer torso and waist
  17. Female head set: Heck, Cover Girl, Cadet Demming, Zanya
  18. Pythona: Head, torso and waist
  19. Female Crimson Guard: Head, torso and waist
  20. Female head set: Scarlett, Lady Jaye and Cover Girl
  21. Sculpts that AF has hanging around
  22. MR. T head and torso
  23. Bare male torso


2) An idea I just came around: What about if we make an effort to comission 3 items this time?

My choice for the next commission is the unhelmeted/unmasked set of heads.

If we do the three commissions, then I would like to cast my vote for updated female heads, unhelmeted/unmasked heads, and the three piece suit.

I am opposed to having Pythona, Billy, or any of the other items we already paid for when we were part of Club ARAH. It just feels wrong to me to have to pay again for items that we all got ripped off on.

That's a helluva list! Only problem: the winners might only get a few votes. But maybe if we pursue commissions for:
1) a figure kit (head/torso/waist; pricey)
2) a head set of 3 (but if they're sold as singles, why push a 3-pack?)
3) maybe an all-new head
This way, there might be something that everyone will like. The IG head was unexpected last project, and I greatly appreciated it. Someone might not want the figure kit but still like one of the heads, so they can get in on the fun.

I know that everyone has specific wish list, but I won't be sad, if mine has lesser love. It's about giving birth to creativity with more parts available. So whatever would be the winner, I'd support it.

Maybe we could make a priority list with the most populr items getting made earlier and other stuff will just be given a lower priority to be taken care of eventually

I like your ideas guys. So... we can run 3 polls like cyko suggests:

1) a figure kit head/torso/waist
2) a head set of 3 (but if they're sold as singles, why push a 3-pack?)
3) maybe an all-new head or an all-new torso

We can call it the 1-2-3 pack.

Here's Rambo's list reorganized for what we're discussing.

FIGURE KITS

  1. 3/2-piece suit torso and waist
  2. Rocky: Head, torso and waist
  3. Mutated Cobra Commander: Head, torso, waist and lower legs
  4. Krake: Head, torso and waist
  5. Modified Viper helmet with tactical vest: Head, torso and waist
  6. Pythona: Head, torso and waist (pretty much our first figure kit)
  7. Female Crimson Guard: Head, torso and waist
  8. Officer torso and waist (Cobra?)
  9. MR. T head and torso
  10. Generic male tactical vest torso
  11. Bare male torso

HEAD MULTIPACKS

  1. "Unhelmeted" Joes head set (Torpedo, Airtight, Barbecue, etc; number to be determined)
  2. Female head set: Heck, Cover Girl, Cadet Demming, Zanya (who is "Heck"?)
  3. "Updated" female head set: Scarlett, Lady Jaye and Cover Girl

HEADS

  1. Stalker head sculpt
  2. Cool Breeze head
  3. Billy head (why was this crossed out?)
  4. Michael Dudikoff head sculpt (from "American Ninja")
  5. Steve James head sculpt (from "American Ninja") (these 2 would make a good future set)
  6. Dreadhead troop head
  7. COIL trooper helmeted head
  8. Toxo-Viper helmeted head
  9. "Updated" HISS Driver head (I like the '83 figure but dislike the head)
  10. Sculpts that AF has hanging around


Pushing 2-3 projects with multiple pieces per project will be expensive. There are some good ideas here, though. I'd prefer the single head option actually be a troop builder (even though I really like Stalker). I'll copy this list to the first post in the thread so we can get a concise list ready for polling.
