    Petition to End the use of Black Plastic - Protected Thread

    Scott has asked for pictures with regard to the Black Plastic fiasco, but I worry that this is not enough. We need to send a very strong message of solidarity among fans of this brand that we are very upset by this latest development. This petition is intended for people to indicate support for stopping this practice in MOTUC.

    Note that this thread has been approved by dorrmann as a protected thread. It is protected in the sense that we are not looking for discussion either for or against the petition and posts that attempt to subvert the overall objective of this thread will be deleted, so please do not post negative comments or things like "I don't support this petition". The point here is solely to demonstrate how many fans DO support ending the practice of painting over Black Plastic in the Classics line. A simple post of "I support this petition" is all that is allowed or required in the thread.

    If you are looking to discuss this issue, please use this thread... CLICK HERE

    If you have pictures you would like to post, please use this thread... CLICK HERE

    Thanks in advance for your co-operation and support.

    I'll kick things off...

    I support this petition.

    Man lives in the sunlit world of what he believes to be reality.
    But...there is, unseen by most, an underworld, a place that is just as real,
    but not as brightly lit... a darkside.

    I fully support this, arms legs and shoulders should always be cast in the correct coloured plastic.

    I did not join the discussion in other threads as it starts to get bit too aggressive ...
    But I show my support here.

    Cast plastic in the correct colour!
    Only use black plastic when the area is supposed to be black.

    I support excluding the use of painted black plastic on parts of MOTUC figures that either do not require black plastic or involve moveable joints, due to the paint flaking off from the most minimal usage.
    Classics TGR figures should be Filmation-based, but they NEED MORE COWBELL!

    I didn't see anything wrong with casting in the correct color plastic + airbrushed detailing.

    Definitely in favor of ending the painted plastic on joints.

    Heads, or other parts that don't involve an actual joint could be alright painted, but not the joints.

    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.
