Crowdfunding Spotlight: Star Bowl Fantasy Football Miniatures on Indiegogo

7 Jun

Hello there folks, I just saw this on frother’s and thought it’d be worthy of a mention (I just hope it doesn’t grass them up by doing so!) Still, what’s the point of publicising something like this on the net!

As you can see, this project is for a Star Wars inspired set of fantasy football miniatures. A cool idea and well executed too. If only it weren’t for the fact this is not an officially licensed product. This would not stop me from getting some if I wanted them, but I don’t think the Empire of the Mouse would be happy at all with this. Somehow I think that soon this is going to be pulled when someone realises this is a really dumb move.

If people think GW’s legal department is bad, when the IP lawyers get a sniff of this, a C&D might be the least of this guy’s worries….

It is a shame, but the reality is that to officially license the iconology is going to be a lot of cash, and if your launching a project like this on a crowdfunding platform to ask for investment, you probably don’t have the money to get the license in the first place.

I mean, just take a look at the concept pic, and the miniature of the Not Yoda. I really do feel sorry for the guy as he seems a very creative and talented fella, the worst thing about it is, if he doe’s achieve funding, the lawyers will probably sting him for more than he makes in total. Someone needs to tell him at least, before Mickey Rat’s guys get to him.

Mars Hoax? Lizard creature spotted on Mars! (Not!)

29 May

Well, if you got my last post mentioning about beards, just forget it, this is what I was trying to get across (No beards though) The reports of this photo from Curiosity on Mars, pertaining to be a lizard like creature, no doubt a hoax, which is a pity.

As much as I’d like to believe it, alas its all probably BS, life probably existed there millions of years ago, but theres little likelihood of anything remaining. The guy who’s put this about sure knows how to pull in a few more hits for his blog, but other than that, sort of looks like a twat!

For those who want to believe, check it out!!!

Mars Discovery: Curiosity Rover’s ‘Earth-Shaking’ Find Downplayed By NASA.

So, in the event of sounding like the news of the Mars rover‘s recent find is going to be a game changer, NASA are now saying that they didn’t mean anything of the sort.

With the press conference scheduled in the next couple of days, they seem keen to suggest that this statement was just meant as the whole mission will go down in the history book, rather than they have discovered organic molecules or even evidence of past life.

The conspiracy nuts out there will no doubt be citing the US government covering up this evidence or something similar.

Maybe they might be right this time, it does seem like they were unhappy that the team spilled the beans about what they found as their official statement seems a little suspect in light of the original news.

I think we all know that there was probably some kind of life there once, I think that they are just putting off the eventual truth that man is foolish for thinking we are unique in the universe. Life is probably a given pretty much anywhere that the right conditions exist or have existed.

We’ll see what they say in a few days.
