I don't get these things. So you take a model(in this case what looks to be a terran space marine, and put a new skin on it? It's still a space marine but with a different skin on it... Seems like an incredibly cheap way to make something that can be then be sold to fools for a huge margin.

*facepalm*Are you really that antagonistic over such a small thing? These are a cute idea, some people like painting their own models, and I think it's a fun and creative thing to do. If you don't like it that's fine, but for god's sake don't get your panties in a bunch for something so ridiculous. Just chill.

I'm with ventroo.Boo F'n hoo.

agreed with Ventroo..To me these just look ridiculous, so I don't get them either. As for making cheap products with huge margin tho, that you gotta expect as it would be equally ridiculous not to have a huge margin on a plastic toy/gadget you KNOW people will acquire for the brand alone.

Yeah, not QQing, but I don't see the attraction. They're just...odd.

Yeah, sorry I could have worded it better. To each his own I suppose. Some people don't get the amount of money I spend on video games, I don't get the appeal of noobs.

The point is that you can decorate them any way you like.They could even be something like an egg, the shape doesn't really matter but something with arms and legs is better.Painting one of them isn't a big deal but its the fact that they were decorated with a lot of passion and dedication that matters, that every employee got a chance to do his best.Its not the figurine, its what it represents.Hey I like Valve more than Blizzard but this is a great way to raise the employee morale, much better than hats day.And they look cool.

believe it or not, some people are of the creative variety, and enjoy these types of things. kid robot's dunny's and munny's are of the same make. pointing out that you "don't get these" is fairly humorous. it makes as much sense (and as little) as someone who spends hours every week killing pixelated mobs and collecting pixelated loot, or making redundant comments on a blog dedicated to the aforementioned killing of pixelated mobs, or really anything that someone out in the vast world might actually personally enjoy.
