NOTE

Just a note to let people know that, while I do try to answer most comments, favorites, and such, I'm kind of terrible at it, so don't be surprised if it takes a while.

I do not currently do requests or commissions.
Which is to say: Kimo 7.

It's like someone opened my mind up and said, "OK, until and unless Darius 7 comes out, will this do?" To which the answer, based purely on the characters, is mostly, "Yes, thanks!"

Mostly.

I will admit that both of the fantasy outfits are a complete "eh, whatever" for me (not because of any perceived quality, just not something I have immediate or even vaguely near term use for) and the beach outfit is something I'll use. And the hairs, I think -- hope -- are having the same issue as the Kalea hairs, promos that don't show them to their best advantage.

And rugby stuff! It's actually ... well, I can't say "ethnic", because that's the wrong word. But it is something that the various island nations seem to be good at and play a lot. (Also, I may be happy about that because I've recently watched rugby online. Still can't understand it that well, but it's got scantily clad brawny guys running around and tackling each other. What's not to like? [Though I will say that some of the tackles look incredibly painful, and result in blood and people getting carried off.])

Even the auxiliary characters, the PA offerings outside the bundles, look interesting. Alexander is downright startling, frankly; he's the first character I've seen from that PA that wasn't very very very pretty. (Alexander is ... really not pretty. I mean, REALLY. Not to say he's not good looking, but he's ... really not pretty. I like him lots, assuming the promos don't lie.) Keanu, from Hinkyhunx, now that's a pretty guy. Not impossibly so; he's in the "let's think about that" category for the moment.

The only qualification I have -- hence, "mostly" -- is that I'm pretty sure that three of the characters use the FWSA Skinvent merchant resource. I am, already, So Freakin' Tired of buying that resource over and over, and would be even if I didn't own it. I get maximizing income, truly I do, and it's the least expensive resource on the market. (And it's not like I can reasonably expect Fred and Friends not to use their own resource.) But I want to go to vendors and say, "USE ONE OF THE OTHER RESOURCES ALREADY! YOU NEED TO VARY YOUR TEXTURE SOURCES!" (I'm not the only person who has noticed the heavy overuse of that set. A couple people in the forum have mentioned that unless there's some unusual morph work or something outstanding about a character, they're not likely to be buying male characters until that eases up.)

But still.

It will be interesting to see what the pricing is supposed to be, once the site settles and everyone is in tomorrow to kick it once or twice. There should be stacking discounts for him; the only question is what, exactly, stacks where. It looks like the 50% off for buying Kalea 7 is meant to replace the normal 30% discount. Which means, I think, that it kicks to 66% off, or thereabouts, for Plat Club members. I think. And then there was another 20% of for ... something which I don't remember, but which we were assured was a stacking discount. So we shall see. (EDIT: And the site is settling already and ... that's some discount, that is! I can totally live with that.)
