HI all!

 

We have been looking at nominating some new LRG Legends for 2020 and here is the short list.

 

Alan Mask - just because

Baltan - ID King!

Jabroni - BB research and content

Beastformers - BB research and content

LittleWierdos - LRG archive goodness

 

This thread is open for discussion on the folks above and for you to nominate anyone we might have missed. Final decisions on inductees will be made by the moderator group.

 

If you are not familiar with the Legends group, it is the LRG Hall of Fame. Those nominated and inducted are those who have had a major positive impact on the group as a whole.

How many folks can be nominated?  3 of the folks you mentioned seem like an obvious yes!!  How many folks get added to the legends list per year?

Alanmask was a paragon of goodwill, youthful exuberance, and ten years after he grew up and moved on, we still fondly look back at his shenanigans. Plus, he now has equal status to Veers, which is worth its weight in gold.

These are my pics as well... I missed out on the AlanMask phenomenon.  That was a bit before my time.  But the first 3 are super obvious YES!!

The heck did I miss in here over the weekend...???

 

Not knowledgeable enough to weigh in on the BB nominees, but I totally endorse Alan Mask and LittleWeirdos as Legends!

 

By the same vein, I am very okay with not taking on any sort of rank myself. I don't do what I do here for prestige or acknowledgement, I don't know everything, I just like helping people ID toys and sometimes learning more about them in the process for myself.

Nor sure what happened with Rubberhammer's deleted posts above, but I also don't think it's crazy to say Rubberhammer, ironmask, and probably a bunch of others I'm not recalling at the moment are more than worthy of nominations too. Honestly, I've been on this board for going on 13 years now, and I've dealt with so many awesome, helpful, generous collectors on this board, it's hard to narrow down an accurate shortlist.

I've been spending a lot of time digesting info by Beastformers (still only going to use the Japanese names for the LBs in my book :p ). But in all honesty, I admire the hard wrk, the dedication, etc. Beastformers has my vote.

The other folks also seem to all have legit love for the boards and the community :)
