You linked us to a link again. Not cool.

You did the exact same thing I did with the messenger bag - put a weapon behind it - and it's pretty cool. My only complaint is the boringness of the dudes clothes. Beige on beige? Pretty lame. I also have bad memories of that head, but it's no fault of yours.

That's one of my favorite heads along with Johnny Thunder. I just like facial hair.

That's because the Rascus face was one of mine!  I based the face for that character on the Brand Manager for that Lego project, a guy by the name of Stuart who left the company shortly afterward.  I wish I still had the concept sketches, I wonder if they're still lying around in one of my filing cabinets over here.

You're a bigger hero to me now than anyone has ever been a hero to anyone else.

That was a stupid sentence. I tried revising it four times, but I'm just gonna leave it like that now.

I keep forgetting that Rayhawk actually helped design some of the parts and sets of The Lego Company.

Specifically, the Jellybean Knights. Whose idea was that, anyway?

When *I* was on the job, Santis was dark bley, Jayko was light bley, Danju was tan, and I forget what Rascus was.  Then the same thing happened to them as happened to every good idea at Lego back then: Marketing took the characters out to focus test with German mothers, and everything took a right turn into nonsense.

At least Vladek stayed black and red like he was supposed to, although substantially less mean-looking.

Lé darn. Those sneaky german mothers. They would have been so much cooler in bleys. The only thing they're good for now is making light blue and purple Halo Spartans.
