    hey rcmtn, i emailed krebs today, just forwarding this to a few


    Thank you, Dave. And FYI my brother and I were very alike in this.
    We got balls rolling. I am 7 years older so I like to think I taught
    him that. If you want to see something happen, do it. Find resources
    w/ the expertise you need, put them together, learn, and do it. We
    are not ppl who sit around and wish. We dream, and then we dive in
    and do.

    Matthew ran a similar exercise w/ ppl he met online where they made
    custom reproductions of old toys. They could make molds, pressure
    inject the resin, paint them, make cards and packaging, etc. It was
    amazing. His sculptor is in Mexico, his painter is in New Jersey,
    etc. They never met except online where they shared their passion.

    I very much ripped him off when I set up the forward control plan. I
    would never have thought it possible to organize ppl across such large
    distances, among complete strangers, had I not seen him do it
    successfully first. They have been making those toys for like 5
    years.

    Some of his figures.

    Even though they look like toys from the 80's, he made them in his
    basement. There are only 5-15 of each one in the world. He has
    buyers all over the globe. Collectors and such.

    Thanks for writing and letting me talk about my brother a little.
    Feel free to share this w/ the others in the project if you think they
    might enjoy reading it.
