Re: The Alpha XXIII:The Alternative!!!
Honestly, your prototype needs alot of work. But I feel where you are going with this. J's did lose their appeal. What I missed the most was the hunt and being able to be the first to rock a new release on the first day. Anticipation and the satisfaction of owning.
Personally I think it was more the rebuyers that killed the industry. Took it out of the die hard's hands. When I couldn't get the first Defining moments package I knew that it wasn't meant to be anymore. I ended my collection with the Flips. III's being my grail, this was the most unique and a good seeing off of the collecting game.
Good luck with what you're doing. I'll give more input later.
