By Konami-produced I mean they look like the quality of products Konami SHOULD be making. Sorry for the offence, 'twas not meant.
No offense taken, it was more me taking a shot at Konami's quality control, or lack thereof.
My translator came through, yeah!
okieLet's talk about the last update of his weblog.
he said that he wanted to make something new statue but he was kinda busy and he doesn't know what he can release.
and also, for Winter fes, he didn't have a time to make a new statue of silent hill series. he said sorry to viewers who expected for him to make something.
so this winter fes, he will show his Cobra (don't know the spell) series and the other one(ガラパゴスゾウガメ) which he is making right now. and he will sell only 5 statues of these.
This helps clear up the confusion with WonderFest/copyright info. So it seems that Konami didn't have any interference?
I figured this was most likely the case, that he just didn't want to make any more or that he couldn't because of his own personal reasons. As I had mentioned before, the Japanese word that he used and was translated into english that we interpret as the term "copyright", may have an entirely
different meaning altogether within the context of this particular writing of his.
You're all so quick to jump on Konami for supposedly doing something, but not ONCE is the word Konami
used throughout his blog!
But if you read Headlong's blog, he mentions being approached by Konami at the end of June. So whilst there's a symbol that might not mean it's anything to do with Konami, the blog posts suggest that it really is. :p
Konami not mentioned at all in the entire blog.
Listen, I've spoken to someone in this line of work, the resin kit and figure model biz, about this exact topic. Based on what they've told me, I have it on good knowledge that a big-time company like Konami would not
really do much, if anything at all, to stop or hinder smaller independent artists like Headlong or those like him.
So I don't believe it's something to be too concerned about...............really.
