So I emailed Gamingheads (the guys making the Liara statue) to see if they were making any more Mass Effect ones, specifically Kaidan and got the response:"Yes, we will be making more Mass Effect statues. However, we currently do not have a plan for Kaidan Alenko statue :("It might be worth it if others also try contacting them though… maybe if they get enough inquiries they might more seriously consider it. You can drop them a message HEREMakes me wonder though… is anyone going to the San Diego Comic-con Bioware panel? If they have a Q&A it would be a real good opportunity for someone to ask them for Kaidan merch to their faces to get them to acknowledge there might actually be some fucking demand for it.
I dropped them a line querying if they might offer a Kaidan figure.
It can’t hurt.
So, update, I got a response from Gamingheads:Thank you for your enquiry.We have received some similar request recently. We will passed these request to our Creative Director. Please keep a close eye on our Facebook page for any new release :)If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us!
being a part of the ai no kusabi fandom is like
During a surprise performance in Seattle Friday night, Macklemore dressed up in an outfit seen by some as a collection of offensive Jewish stereotypes.
do you hear that
the sound of no one gasping in shock
watch people get offended by this, moreso than by his past racist and faux-ally antics
this was a shitty thing to say
and yr shitty for saying it
um i’m JEWISH so
what i’m dumb because i’m suggesting that people will give macklemore a free pass for being racist and co-opting lgbtq struggles but not for being antisemitic?
i reblogged this because macklemore was disgusting for pulling this antisemitic bullshit, but i’m calling attention to the fact that people will probably give him more shit for this than for being racist and a shitty lgbtq “ally” in the past
what if you gained your icons personality for a week
tw: link goes to article with graphic quotes from the victim’s complaint.
I’ve been waiting three fucking years for this movie, and how can I in any kind of good conscience pay money for it, now that I know the director is a rapist?
(alleged, you might say. legally only alleged. but I am not a court of law, and I believe this boy. so.)
I’m so angry. I’m angry because another rich white man is probably going to get away with rape. I’m angry because every member of the DOFP cast is going to spend the next six weeks at least talking about how great it was to work with Singer, and they’re going to either say nothing about the charges or worse, some of them will speak up for him.
(I can’t decide if silence is worse than explicit support or defense. I go back and forth on it.)
it hurts. it hurts me as a fan, and as a rape survivor, and as a human being. it hurts to know these things happen at all, to know that they get brushed aside and shrugged off by the rich and the powerful and privileged. it hurts to wonder what I might know tomorrow. will the day come soon that I can’t trust a friend because they speak in defense of this man? will the day come soon that I can’t trust Ian McKellan, or James McAvoy, because they take the side of a monster?
(on days when the screaming in my head is too loud, it’s movies that I turn to, it’s those faces and voices and stories that help quiet it all down. being a fan is one of the ways that I am able to be a survivor instead of a victim.)
I’m so angry because this news makes me feel helpless. and helpless is exactly what men like Singer want us to be.
WHY IS NOBODY TALKING ABOUT THIS
nobody should go see the new x-men movie and support this asshole pedophile rapist. protest everything to do with it. and remember that there is a ring of child molesters operating in hollywood and they need to be exposed
um so lemme get this straight…tiana starts her own business in a time where black women had next to no rights….mulan pretty much saves china and becomes a top ranking military official….but the annoying sister in frozen makes a throwaway line about being gassy and gets lauded as the the first feminist princess??
why the hell are you tagging your hate…?
Someone I follow said that “you have to admit that Snape is the best literary character created in the last 50 years.”
why is wikipedia saying that the “original femme fatale” is marlene dietrich?
THEDA BARA, PEOPLE!
i thought bioware learned its lesson with the extended cut
the fans don’t want more goddamn context for the crappy ending
no context in the world erases the fact that the ending completely contradicts the mythology that the games were building over the course of the series
just face it: you made it up as you went along, and then you cover up the contradictions and plot holes using “ARTISTIC VISION” as a blanket excuse
Bioware: Stop telling us that Shepard is supposed to be male (and that the addition of Fem!Shep was to appease female gamers and add the illusion of “choice”) with stuff like this or else commit fully to equal opportunity for Fem!Shep.
Fem!Shep should not be a second thought, she should be treated as equally valid in the series canon and the games’ marketing.
Did you ever think that maybe the Shepard in the save this image is from is a male Shepard? No? Of course not.
Kind of difficult, seeing as how I TOOK THIS SCREENSHOT from my own game with a Fem!Shep MYSELF. Next time you want to be a jerk be sure of your facts, moron.
