Hot Takes and Top Comments

Have to keep today’s post short, sorry all, but there are a few topics I get to put the wrap on after days, weeks, or months of talking about them:

  • Black Cyber Four-Day Weekend: Thank you and congratulations to everyone who took advantage of the best prices of the year in our online store!  As I’ve mentioned, I’m no longer developing our products, and most products we release sell well initially before cooling off, as is common in retail. The Black Friday to Cyber Monday sale is nice because products I designed get a second wind.
  • Richard the Warlock the action figure: There was one item available this weekend that wasn’t discounted, the long-awaited Richard action figure. I say long-awaited, but any delays were in preproduction, before the figure was ever announced. We learned enough from dealing with this manufacturer that we overshot the delivery date on the Kickstarter (January 2018). Even with a grace period for backers to get their hands on the figures first, we managed to get it in store more than a month early. Now everyone can enjoy the most articulated 4” Dick on the market, loaded with accessories to have even more fun with Dick!
  • PAX Unplugged: Our last convention appearance of the year was the first ever PAX Unplugged. I’ve heard mixed reviews about the show from both exhibitors and attendees, but it was a great show for us. The Orphans & Ashes (now with More Phun) demo tables were loaded round the clock Friday and Saturday, and pretty busy Sunday. Because of the location and crowd, we got to meet a lot of fans who don’t make it to other shows we attend, and got to make me fans as well. Like I said, reviews were mixed so I recommend anyone interested in going next year do their research first, but I definitely see us going back.

Speaking of going back, it’s time to go back to November 6th to 17th for your top comments:

What if.. They did legit kill richard and we all think it’s a joke on purpose untill 3 months later we realize he still hasn’t come back.

George Good
Schadenfreude. It’s still a thing.

Adam Bolander
With Richard gone, the number of madnesses may lower drastically.

TDA 195
Russell Levine
The villian stroking a cat isn’t really the villian…it’s the cat.

Kiru Nekusan
I was thinking the cat was a reference to “Pussy Riot” and how good they are at yanking his strings…

Jeffrey Mueller
In fairness, he’s not actually targeting trump here. He’s targeting the cats. Cats can’t be trusted!!!

Alexandre Cauchon
it pulled the strings for fun

How do you tell the difference between a giant fireball and a giant teleportation orb that looks like fire? Simply check to see if anything is lit on fire when you touch it instead of seeing a missing chunk of course!

Kat Sapsorrow
Ok, these things are accounted for; waist up torso, head, two arms, two legs… what happened to his butt?

Jenna White
So, this would explain why Richard can’t dance in the music videos… he has two left feet.

Casey Joe Ashmore
But he can fwoosh if he wants too.

LFG 1139
Justin Davidson
A disembodied voice talking to a disemboweled voice. Funny.

Bradley Hakenson
In tang, no one can hear you scream

Adam Joseph Nichols
The lich has an itch.

Speedy Marsh
I guess next page we’ll find out if the core being is being cordial.

David Rickard
When I was younger so much younger than today
I never needed anybody’s help in any way
But now these days are gone and I’m not so self assured
Now I find I’ve changed my mind, I’ve opened up the doors
Help me if you can, I’m feeling down
And I do appreciate you being ’round
Help me get my feet back on the ground
Won’t you please, please help me?

TDA 196
Garry Cylon
You should swap notes with Santa TD, I am sure his naughty list predates yours, and would include all those luddite nazis who don’t twitter.

Eruanion Nolaquen
I can’t wait for him to get enough corpses to do his full “Hitler on Ice’ show

Nanifa Ivan
Nazis: “We are going to create a superior race!”
TD: “Of corpses.”

And now we know why it is called the whirled….
After reading the comic I saw the ad flickering on the side of the screen and the scarf flashed by, and , at first, i thought it said LEG scarf. i thought they were selling “”lost in the magma “” Richard pieces

Alexandre Cauchon
Richard: hey guys, the good news is I got out of the core, bad news is I think I took Slaughter the world too litterally, might want to get the gnomes on their space programs

Graeme Brown
Where was the “you spin me right round baby right round” Richard definitely missed an opportunity there.


Now you know,
