Well ok then, but my other question, is Carl still being held up?

A $10 donation to HLP.

It's worth noting that HLP Carl is on hold for the time being.  Soon (very soon) we'll be back in business. :)

How soon?  I may end up going to another convention this year, likely GenCon in Indy.  Might be able to get some interesting shots of him there.

We were back in business as of the time we uploaded the pictures from Volition. :) So if you make the requisite donation, we'll put you on the list.

You're seriously making a Shivan figure, and naming it after Carl? Have you all forgotten that Carl was an actual forum member, back in the day?

I haven't. It's just the name of HLP station's 'pet' shivan.

There seems to be a complete disconnect, though. He's still around. Posts occasionally on some other forums.

...I'd assume that the very reason they named this figure Carl was because of the actual forum user, and the local meme that he generated. :p

Yea I don't think it's a coincidence. And has he even posted here recently?

I can't quite imagine a cuddly shivan.

Well someone imagined cuddly germs.

Speaking of, considering the whole FS3-on-XBOX debacle, maybe we could lend Carl to Arby 'n' the Chief so he can pay them a little visit :)

Carl was named after Adam the Terran and Bob the Vasudan, as the original races were just named A, B and C. Hence the big angry C chasing the human around on the ST secret movies.

The first time I saw a reference to Carl was in the old Tell a Story thread. I never figured out whether the guy named himself after that thread or if he registered with that name and learned about the thread later on. :p

Re: HLP invaded by Carl!
A plush shivan would've been a better investment. Or rather a plush Shivan shop - where users could buy plushy shivans. And plushy vasudans.

You could pay for the server that way. In part.
