That's a fantastic statue. Well done, team, and congratulations on hitting that sweet milestone! However...

Some of the initial ideas included things that basically had no practical use and were purely collectibles. I was making an argument that I thought it would be cooler to have items people would actually want to use, so they weren’t just something that sat around on a shelf until forgotten… Well, actually, I said exactly this:

I've never cared about collectible shit at all but even I feel like it would be cool to have a GD bottle opener - or really any game themed bottle opener, whereas, if it's some statue or bobble or whatever, it's probably going to end up either in the garbage or in some box, never to see the light of day again, moved from house to house until I die and my kids finally throw it away

or if you're into collectible shit, it might end up on a display shelf until you finally have more shit than you can display and put some of it in a box to eventually be thrown out by your kids after you die.

fair enough

Zantai played it cool in chat but apparently I managed to unknowingly crush everyone’s dreams just as they were about to present me with this GD statue, that was months in the making and, I’ve heard, was not “cheap”. Oof…
This is hilarious.

Thoughts and prayers.
