There is not the same incentive to share because feedback is either nill or the same 5 guys saying "looks great". Sometimes the motivation to become better at customizing comes from "I can't wait to show the guys", so with that diminished, so has motivation.

I haven't lost motivation... but I find myself being pulled in 47 different directions. Two kids, running my own business, I just don't have the time to play with my toys as much as I used to (or would like to).

But I still love my toys as much as ever, and my desire to do something with my collection besides watch it gather dust is probably at it's highest. That's why I made the site linked in my signature, so I could put everything in one place and be motivated to do more.

Welp, he sold me some crack. Sigh.

After scrolling through his vids, I found a Superman figure that I didn't know existed, and now I NEEEEED it!

See, I told you! Dan is the master of making me want more toys.

The one thing I don't like about his videos is that he rarely pulls out for a full shot of the figure(s).

Giggity!

And yeah.. I imagine with customs/etc there is some dick wagging going on, we all want praise, why else would we be sharing it?

I mean, it's fun doing them, and I like setting up dios, but ultimately there isn't a whole lot to do when it's just me. Kids aren't into it, wife isn't in to it..

I still have a vision of doing a whole compound/base dio outside in the backyard. I still have the stupid PTE towers I got a decade ago waiting.. but as I get older and time marches on.. I'm thinking it's less and less likely to happen.

Other hobbies also get in the way... not to mention the $$$ barrier to entry for our hobby now.. even for stuff that's still at mass market like Star Wars.

Aww man. I added the "of the figure" on purpose just for that reason.
