Instead of bringing the guy on here like you did the last one and run him off questioning his authenticity and honesty and flood him with PM's and questions, why do you not run questions through one person (Irishhasbrogod would probably consent to this) to forward to the former employee so he does not get overwhelmed or insulted.
On another forum, someone found a former LJN employee and they are taking questions to present in segments to avoid the above for the employee to answer at their leisure.

i emailed him and asked him about some prototypes and here is his answer.
Hello Robert, the Hammer Valentine with the white outfit with black musical notes pal is that the one you mean? that figure was originally meant as a tag team figure with Honky Tonk Man in black suit we thought this might be a costly problem... tho as that tag team was not very popular at the time and we felt that alot of these would go unsold. As regards the Tugboat wwf informed us that Fredd Ottmans wrestling character would be changing so that toy was scrapped and the Typhoon toy was made instead. Shawn Michael i am not sure of Robert but i could try find some info for you in the future.
this guy could answer all the questions that badgerboy couldnt, but lets not make the mistake of everybody bombarding him with hundreds of emails and questions, we wouldnt want him to dissapear to soon.

I wont pester him, i agree, it would be a shame to scare him off.
For once and for all, ask him if he knows anything of the famous 'yellow boots dusty', a lot of us believe its sun fade, some people still think its a variant. Could this guy give us an answer.
Does he have any images/shots any other info on protos or unreleased figures... even just concepts. To be honest, im happy to hear about anything.
Again, thanks for finding this guy.
EDIT - Ive noticed quite a lot of questions from a lot of people on his page already. I dont know what you think, is it worth deleting that link at the top incase masses of people add him and scare him off? or am i being an idiot?

WOW WOW WOW INCREDIBLE LOOK AT THIS REPLY FROM GER
O yes Jimmy you are exactly right Diesel was meant to be in this line but he was having contract issue to wwf at the time and wwf told us to put his toy on hold but as we were stuck for time we had to put out 123 kid instead it made sense that while we were in a rush to get a replacement to use a simple body style from a previous toy ie ricky rude and that is how the 123 kid made it into the line.
