    That's sucks, Bro
    I'm surprised with what you've made on some of your work,
    that you don't do it full time.

    thanks guys. now I go 100% and in 5th gear.

    It's actually a unpaid leave of absence which means I keep ALL my benefits (even gym membership)
    Everyone's been telling me it's a blessing in disguise and a great opportunity to really focus my time and energy on customs.

    Dude, I gotta say, that is a good thing and welcome to the club! I have been working for myself for two years now. Autobox23 lost his job too. Why make someone else rich when you got the skills to make yourself and family a good living. The one thing that does suck, a lot of people are losing there jobs and don't have skills like you. Just making this USA worse. But we sure are doing our part in making other countries rich!!

    With your skills, and the price your Devastator went for, I'm thinking this is a good thing.

    At least for us, since we will see so many more amazing figures :)

    While I'm still looking for a gig, but till then, welcome to the "I'm out of work, so lets customize full time!" club, F_R.

    You worked in Graphics too, right? Tell me you snatched a severance package!

    Yeah I would say that sucks but you've got the ability to make some loot off your customizing, and now you have the time to do it, so boo hoo. And you get to keep your gym membership?! I don't even have a gym membership! SCREW YOU, I'M GLAD YOU GOT FIRED!!

    err ahem, excuse me, I mean, uh, good luck man, you'll do fine. Finish that Bruticus up fast now!

    ;)

    if you were in line to the hasbro:TF panel, there's a good chance someone handed you one.

    I hope you find work soon, whatever avenue that takes you down :) 

    I hope you don't work on customs so much that you get out of practice of the graphics end of things. I doubt that'll happen though :)

    Some lady tried to give my friend, Jin Saotome and me some little red piece of scrap paper(red is to cliche' for me). I was looking for you but don't think I saw you. Sucks about the lay off, same thing happened to me, sometimes things are great timing, weeks after I got laid off shocker Toys hired me on as a design company for some things in their future lines and I'm stoked. One door closes, another one opens.

    Why weren't you at the customizers panel BTW, guys from the industry went over some great info(you would have loved the discussion of paints).
