Ridiculing The "GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only) Toys & Games That Never Sold
Yes, nothing quite said...."This game will never sell".....quite the way the "GINO" board game did. First you were greeted by the...."Frowning Sour Puss"....of Edward James Olmos on the box of the game (Enticing for children, right?) and then you had the game itself. Based upon a low rated television series on a low rated backwater cable network. A television series that would have been cancelled after its second episode if it had aired on any other cable network that was managed normally instead of a like a...."Personal Frat House"....for the dear friends of the SyFy Channel who were all devoid of talent and imagination.
I always loved the "GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only) action figures (for ridicule purposes) simply because they were so generic in appearance. Were these action figures from the "G.I. Joe" toy line? Or the "Barbie & Ken" action / adventure line? Or were they of some off shoot of the "Transformers" toy line?
Of course, the generic appearance of these "GINO" action figures (no iconic and unique characteristics) such as the iconic and unique characters from the...."1978 Battlestar Galactica Series"....must be blamed on the wardrobe people who worked on the "GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only) series. Possessing no talent, no imagination, and no inspired thinking...combined with stunning laziness across the board...These generic and bland "GINO" characters of course translated into generic and bland "GINO" action figures immediately interchangeable with any other toy line of generic and bland action figures.
Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on Amazon.com...
And read these books at another location where Universal Studios executives and its stealth marketers won't be able to post negative, misleading (stealth marketed) reviews of the books via them purchasing candy and Rogaine Foam on Amazon.com (allowing them access to the Amazon book review section) and not actually buying and reading the books. I'll leave the other 150 global locations under wraps for now.
