Don't forget Happy New Year!
Not everyone has the luxury of affording such a lavish piece. But then are we to deny a fan of getting a screen accurate prop that they have always wanted just because they cant afford it? I don't think that these things should only just be for the rich or ppl who are able to save up for them. As i said before, sometimes the closest thing is better than nothing at all.Spats said:Or you could save your change to buy that sideshow piece instead of a recast later down the road.. its what I'm doing.
It is what I'm doing as well I mean I'm living in my car, but I'm not making this sacrifice just for Predator collectibles. I also have debt that has to be taken care of that is going to done hopefully by the middle of next year. Just saying I'm willing to do what it takes to get certain things done. I know with family involved which includes the Christmas season and stuff I don't expect them to pull of crazy acts like that.Spats said:Or you could save your change to buy that sideshow piece instead of a recast later down the road.. its what I'm doing.
Thank you. This is what I was basically trying to say and I agree totally.A Hunter's Moon said:The rules are there to put a stop to the selling and trading of recasts. Sadly altering the rules further won't change what an individual buyer will do with their money. In the end it does come down to a moral issue. It becomes the issue because of the individuals opinions on the matter. As I've mentioned mistakes can be made but to continue to buy and therefor support recasters is simply what keeps them in business.
It's not about the big guy or the little guy. It's not a poor thing or a rich thing. If you're hungry and you steal your food it's still wrong. It's just more acceptable to the person doing it because they can justify it. Then there are those who'd rather starve than steal. That's what will always make this a hot topic and a never ending debate. It wont change anytime soon.
I do feel it's good for us to air out our feelings on the matter once in a while. People will pick a side from what we say and thats perfectly fine. In the end it's their decision anyway and they can choose to live with it however they like.
But for me, this is precisely why I agree with Savage that it is not a black and white issue--it IS a matter of morals, and its morality can only be considered on a case-by-case basis.Usurper said:Like It or lump it I don't do not care. For me it boils down to morals.
This subject will go around and around as people will ALWAYS try to find angles so they can justify it.
Well I was discussing the original topic of this thread, which was Savage's views on the morality of recasting. I'm not the one who dragged the black and white Lair rules into a grey morals discussion.Usurper said:Sure that's what Mr savage was discussing but what were discussing is recasting members work and sideshow and other prop suppliers which are in and applicable to our rules.
You are adding grey areas of the topic to black and white rules here.
I'm actually goin to leave it at that now for good and again lol.
I would agree with your views. But now let's consider a few more examples to see where most of us would draw the moral line:monstermaker said:The aquarium thing i would class as a found object, i've cast plenty of real world items for use in various projects, the lightsabre to would be only used for the film then yes, as long as then you didn't sell on any copies and destroyed the mould, thats just my opinion anyway
