For the Pops, my guideline has been one per franchise. So, for example, Jet from Cowboy Bebop, or Zoe from Firefly. This can get a little (read: VERY) subjective, especially considering where to draw the franchise/company line (I have Flik for my PIXAR films, Stitch for Disney feature animation, Mary Poppins for Disney live-action, and Eeyore from Winnie-the-Pooh. They might all belong to the House of Mouse, but I've demonstrated enough self-control to not get buried in MCU and Star Wars Pops (Peggy Carter and Kanan, btw).

But I've long said (to myself, mostly) that Gargoyles would be the exception (and boy, was the Star Wars Rebels line, another in the Weisman family, difficult to hold back on) . . . so in addition to buying any and all I can feasibly buy, I intend to get a new shelf, lol.

Greg has stated on numerous occasions that his opinion on fanfic (in general...as was already pointed out, he has no opinions on any particular story, as he does not read them for legal reasons) is somewhat...mixed. For further detail:


As for the Funko Pops, I'm really happy they went all-in with the product line! I've steadfastly avoided purchasing any Pops before now (as I know I'm the obsessive type and once I purchase one, it'll make it soooooooo much easier to fall down that particular rabbit hole in a very bad way), but these ones have me seriously reconsidering that stance.

A whole line of Gargoyles Funko Pops announced: https://www.bleedingcool.com/2018/05/25/gargoyles-funko-pops-hit-stores-july/

Also, 3 and 4 at least are 'No Spoilers' and 'Show crew can't legally read fanfic.'

Seventh, for lack of anything more clever to say.

Congrats on season 3! I cannot wait!
1.How did Zatanna react when Artemis died?

2. How did Zatanna reacts when she found out she was being used (and Artemis didn't really die)

3. Is there going to be more Zatanna in season 3? She is one of my favorite characters

4. How do you and your co-workers feel about the fanfiction made for your show?

Which would everyone prefer I play - a major or minor third?

There is balance in all things. Live in symmetry with the world around you. If you must blow things up and steal from those around you, THAT'S WHAT RPGS ARE FOR!

Deplorable and loving it!

So does this make me first, or will time zone shenanigans occur?
