Hi Dave, Do you have any background information on these auctions?

Not a box art rough--this was a possible pose design for the model kit that never came to pass. There were TWO designs: this one, and one with the mutant clutching actress Faith Domergue in his arms. Aurora shot down the one with ms. Domergue on the basis of the flack they'd been getting from parents' groups over the'torture scenes', with the girl and the torture devices. The Faith Domergue version was later put out by my friend Larry Johnson of Action Hobbies in Louisville, KY, in a limited edition resin kit. It's proven very popular.

Yes, this was a guide for the sculptor. The prototype was sculpted by Bill Lemon, and he did a beautiful job. Alas, it was one of the kits Aurora decided to terminate. Aurora had gotten a new CEO who came from Revlon, and he did't know a damn thing abojt model kits. He looked arounf the industry and saw that everybody else was doing planes and cars and military vehicles, and wondered why Aurora was mostly doing figures. He insisted Aurora should compete with the existing market, and and thus they started working on planes and cars, which they had never been good at. Nobody bothered to point out to this jerk that Aurora did figures better than ANYBODY, and that's why nobody was competing with them.

Frankly, I dodn't remember doing this. I DO remember the character--he was originally an idea of my late friend Mark Hanerfeld, but the title was 'DOC DINOSAUR. the man with the dinosaur brain'. Where the Lord Dinosaur and the T Rex names came from, I don't know. I'd sure like to know where these people got those pieces!

Bet my bottom dollar they were in Mark Hanerfelds collection and since Mark is dead, his relatives may be selling off his stuff. Maybe andy Yanchus knows...since he worked at arrora and was pals with both Dave AND mark, he might be the one to ask about this.

Hey... If Maelstrom is peeking in... I got your U to U and couldn't reply cuz for some reason I kept getting error messages when I tried. I don't think there's a problem here... just someone wanting info on some of Dave's art...LOL

It just seems that for some reason, some of us here can post messages on U to U... and for some of us it doesn't work...hmmmmm...we are told that it is a quirk of the provider...and we are maybe gonna go elsewhere cuz some members cann't seem to use the wervices...but obviously some CAN... so if I don't post U to Us to anyone it is not for lack of trying...

I would just lke to know why some people can and come people cannot seem to make things work around here.

Hey, that's awfully cynical. :( When you have such a big project as a forum which gets changed a lot, some things inevitably break down and it's not the admins' fault!

For what it's worth, if anyone would like me to take a look at the U2U system or gallery, I can do it; I'm a professional web developer, specialising in MySQL/PHP development. I'd be glad to do it; I constantly notice the posts around of people frustrated with it, and it's not the admins' fault but I'd love to help. :D

well... this has been going on ever since the forum changed servers a while back. first the gallery didn't work... and that was a pain, but...OK...but we did have U to Us and other features. then all of a sudden, some of the posters didn't have U to Us and some do... ...OK....and Bamfette explained that it was problems with the server and they were trying to fix it or, if not fixable, were looking into getting a server that could give the forum what it needed by way of services.

Yeah... I understand that things break down... it is a COMPUTER ... fer gods sake! It's middle name is BREAKDOWN...or even simply , DOWN.

I am being frustrated cuz I can't even get it to reply to a U to U sent to me. so unless I reply in a public forum, the correspondent will think I am snubbing them??? there are some things that are not meant for public forums... although this isn't one.. And not everyone posts their email addy in case someone wants to send them a private post offlist. so what's a poster to do? If you can fix it, honey, give them a hand...I have enough frustrations in my life without the damn devilbox making more...
