Danny Choo and Pals Launch Figure.FM Site!!

That Groovesome guy with the cool site is launching another site for all of us toy fans that let's you upload all your favorite pics of all your coolsome toys! Danny and his buddies have written a new platform called "Carrot" which allows you to see the same content in different "views". It's pretty cool and I encourage all of you to check it out and add your pics!!!


"It gives me great pleasure to announce the beta launch of Figure.FM
- a community site dedicated to coolsome Japanese toys n figures. The idea is simple - post photos of your groovesome Gundams, fruity figures and share information on the latest Japanese toy n figure news. runs on a platform called Carrot which is being developed by Gunpla-san, Otsun-san, myself and a few other developers who want to remain in the dark (for now ;-). We've been working on this project for a while now and are near Alpha.

Carrot is still in beta and we are constantly working on improving the caching system while bashing those peskly bugs. Things I think you may like about Carrot are the different views - main view, category view and blog view. Each of these views has its own RSS feed. Apart from the feeds, each view also features a thumbnail mode to enable you to find what you are looking for quicker.

Take a look, sign up, post away and tell me what you think - hope you enjoy it.
Before I forget, thanks to Sbebiwan and NickC for giving the site a quick QA ^^. "
