FBTB Stormtroopers?

Postby Obi-Wan Skywalker » Sun Oct 18, 2009 8:17 am

I was on eurbricks awhile back and read about their eurobricks stormtroopers. Could we have FBTB ones?

What is a Eurobricks Stormtrooper?

Does asking for cool swag count as a suggestion?

I cite the Bluemoose Articles of Suggestopia:

If I see any more commentary of this type directed at Eurobricks, I'll warn first and ban next. The FBTB-Eurobricks "feud" is a farce. Can someone even tell me how it "started," if it ever did? Did someone just make it up along the way?

Working with one of the admins of their site on a daily basis at the model shop has shown me that we're all on the same page, we just execute our ideas differently.

Let it go.

My guess is that it had something to do with the fact that Euorbricks was started by a couple of former FBTBers who got their panties in a wad over RTB and seemed to enjoy punctuating their forum posts with 'FBTB sucks' for some time thereafter. But both communities have come a long way since then, and I too think it's about time any perceived grudges were dropped.

Well...certainly, if it's something you're willing to work on: tear it up! But I wouldn't expect anything to come of it otherwise.

Thanks goes out to:
LuxorV - for designing the print and pauldron
Rayman - for making the pauldrons
Hinckley - for decal printing, tutorial and decal toolbox
CopMike - for donating loads of parts
The rest of the staff for inputs, thoughts and ideas towards the making of this.
Without you guys, this would never have happened


Will there be FBTB contents and prizes in the future? Sure. But if you're going to go through this level of effort to offer a nice freebie as a contest prize, why not be original about it? Eurobricks did a cool thing, maybe FBTB can do it's own cool thing. But, as illustrated above, it's really no small thing to do cool things.
