    To paraphrase my own words: in submitting the characters we create to be made into cards, there is the risk/probability of the original concept undergoing significant alterations that the creator may not like - which has been the case since day one. It'd be nice if things turned out perfectly all the time, but sadly that's not the case. :(

    I mean, it's not really hard to understand. Even though the original Great Strider clearly isn't a dinosaur, at first glance it still gives off an impression that could make one see it as the Hollow Earth equivalent of a Brontosaurus or the like. Massive, docile, magnificent to behold, etc. Like everyone else I prefer the original take and understand Sweet's disappointment, but I can also easily understand the thought process that led Slither to lean toward the dinosaur angle. Whatever the case, he's explained himself and offered to listen, so this extra grilling feels a little unnecessary imo.

    Maybe I sound a bit rude in my reply. I would like to apologize about that. But still, no matter what the original approach of the artist is, I really want to suggest him to be more careful on the original creator's thought. Otherwise, it's going to affect reputation of Sunstone, and its approach to future development of cards and games!

    Nope, not a Brontosaurus hater. In fact I love them, just didn't want a generic Dinosaur.

    And Halluciginia is a species of worm creatures that I used for The Original Striders. The whole point was to make it an awesome, never before seen kaiju.

    Don't think I ever saw this much backlash at a card reveal, even Lorcia (which both Asura and Bambs mentioned in this thread) received very little backlash when she was revealed and even then that was cleared up relatively quickly if I remembered. But as most people said it's beyond changing right now, though it may be something that will need to be considered in the future.

    My personal opinions on the card, must say it's not my personal favorite card. Nothing to do with the fact that it is completely going against the original design of the Great Striders, in fact I'm looking at the card as it's own thing and not trying to compare it to the original design. However, with that being said the design is not the best. As many people have said the design is awfully bland for a Kaiju. As a dinosaur or general monster/beast design I think it's one that can work, but as a Kaiju I don't think it does. The concept is interesting and the art is fantastic, that isn't the problem and in the end it does come off as a pretty solid card. Whereas I personally don't like the design I can see the reason why some people may like it.

    Overall, it is no doubt a great card accompanied by some fantastic art and an interesting concept. The design could've been a bit better and I can understand people's complaints, but looking at it by itself there's little gripe to be had with the exception of the design being relatively bland. I think you did a good job for what it is Slither, still am very excited to see the other designs for the Kaiju in this set no matter what may come of them.

    I am pretty sure you're not a Brontosaurus hater. That's why I add "(I'm not saying he is. But it's possible that the same case may happen to other members.)" afterward to point out that the case may happen to other members. (Sorry if it has become confusing...)

    BTW, still, will you consider to re-submit Halluciginia for another series? It will work if Halluciginia becomes a separated Kaiju to the current Great Striders.

    I don't really know. It all depends if I head off into the military.

    I would like to know about that too, but it might take a while, seeing that Simon has some work to do that involves quite a lot of travelling, and while I have no idea what Slither is up to, I'm sure he'll be back soon :joyful
