There's a lot, and going into it in any kind of real detail would derail this thread, which should be avoided. If people want to know about the drama with Bobby Vala and his behavior, there are plenty of other places to read about it.

What happened? I usually don't pay attention to the drama, only the reviews and product reveals. Did he say/do something?

I was actually looking forward to buying the Locust and Praetorian, after having not picked up anything from the last few waves, and passing on the Vanguard due to the size.

But Bobbys behavior has finally made me drop collecting the line. Ive generally ignored his behavior in the past. I don't pay any attention at all to beefs in the industry, and I only watch YouTube reviews to see if I would like something. But Vala is really determined to be vocally nasty about people he doesnt like, and he seems to not like a lot of people, including his customers.

Ive admired and enjoyed the product he built, and I liked supporting a small company. But honestly theres nothing hes putting out that I cant get from other lines, including the one that he hates/copies from more than anything else.

What did he say/do? I didn't see anything in that presentation. This is something outside of that?

This beauty can be easily blinding with classified series .. with cobra side of course .. just waiting for announcing the cost

I hope there are enough (the Praetorian guard) by the time I get to Terrificon on Sunday. I know it's not the biggest con but I feel like these will bring the people out.

YES...I like it. Fast, agile, highly capable light attack / armed reconnaissance airborne strike vehicle, specifically designed for Precision, Close Combat, and Anti-armor Attacks; Security & Escort and extraction capable. Even comes with phone charger, cup holder and sound system with for easy integration with popular smartphone platforms, including Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

And I even like the color.

(Ha ha this is just the projector reflecting on the model....gives it Avatar vibes, huh)

I'm gonna call it a "Trouble Bumble" because some of the SWARM dudes are basically bees. Get it? lolzIn all seriousness though, it's pretty rad looking.
