Post F4-toys at E3

The MBN member, darkflame, got a net buddy, who was going to E3 to cisit f4-toys post there. Apparently they werent showing of a game, but were looking for publishers (note fred said they had none the last time i called him) This is what he had to say:-

"Hi Thomas

How are you?

Sorry for the delay in responding, I only got back from the US on Monday.

OK - I went to F4-Toys section in the Kentia Hall (6904) - Basically, it was
a private (closed in) meeting room, so I knocked on the door and I entered
it....

They had a big display of some videogame character and a monitor displaying
a game. Two guys were sat down one was Fredric Raynal and the other guy was
Alexis Galley (I knew because I quickly read their badges). I was greeted by
Alexis, who asked what I wanted (quite abruptly if the truth be known)...

I explained that I had come to look at game by Fredric Raynal
and I'd like to take a few photographs of it if possible. Alexis then asked
"Who are you?" I explained that I had visited this stand on behalf of the
LBA forum who were huge fans of Fredric Raynal, and represented 100+ fans of
him and his work.

I was then told by Alexis that I couldn't take any photos or look at the game as they would only talk to publishers. I then said that I am from a publisher and gave him my card - again, he said that I still couldn't take any photographs and I said "Well OK, I'm sorry to bother you..." then as I left he handed me his business card and said if "they" wanted any information, they must contact him directly.

The details on the business
card were:

Alexis Galley
Chief Executive Officer
(his email)

Tel: +33 (0)********** (phone number censored )
Fax: +33 (0) **********


F4-Toys
6, rue Lincoln
75008 Paris
France



I'm sorry that I didn't get anymore info - I DID try really hard and was
100% polite through out. (I know what it is like to be a fan of someone's
work and to be hunting for snippets of info)

Please let me know if you get anywhere with these details :-)

Take care

George Bray
Project Manager "

I figured the comment about "on behalf of the LBA" thing would sell Fred...maybe not. Oh well. I wonder how many publishers they interested...

Axx, why did you cut your news from the main MBN page?
That's what the MBN main page is for, no need to save place from too much news, and some people won't bother clicking on discuss... that's my opinion anyway.
