I logged on the other day and noticed that many of the original Rotomafia members have fallen off the face of the earth. Whatever happened to people like Marinaro500, Pinkish Hue, etc.? Are you guys still out there? Are you collecting? Did you get high enough up in the Rotomafia that someone had to have you offed?

Joe (M500) is still an internet legend, but has moved on from toy collecting to other pursuits:

Pinkish veered off into collecting Blythe a couple years ago.

Peabe moved to California to further pursue his art career but still posts semi-frequently.

LoneCub, agitprop, pock-it-palz and iccdp still post quite a bit.

The rotomafia is still alive and well, but our numbers are somewhat slimmer these days. We have a lot of store regulars that I definitely consider to be part of the group even though they aren't necessarily forum members.

I've considered, from time to time, shutting down the forums because they aren't very active...but I still see a value in them.

No - definitely don't shut down the forums...they are still a source of amusement and information...

Wow - Joe really goes to town with the pictures!

Now I don't post a lot, but lurk a lot more on the forums. Mostly because I'm busy with other things or lazy, but it's probably the latter. As for collecting, I've never really been getting any new vinyl toys in about a year, as I've gotten into a similar hobby, Warhammer 40K. It' s actually pretty close to this, as you build them and paint them, along with collecting them, ofcourse. However, the main thing is it's a strategy game.

I only visit from time to time, but I'd hate to see the forums closed... Maybe I'll post more (and not float behind the scenes as much!)

Crap! And I think it's one "M", as I've been corrected, in person back when he sported peyos.
