Haha, that picture brings back some memories. I made an order of silver right after that picture.
I remember the forums hosted on Red Bean Studio, I had only been a member for a little while before it got hacked and MinifigCustomizationNetwork.com came about. I do miss MCN. Its a shame that it was taken down to become MinifigCustoms.com. That pretty much demolished what was left of the community there.
I'm pretty sure Red Bean studios became BF when Armother and Red Bean partnered.
If I remember correctly, it became MCN Store, then Brickforge.. though I might be mistaken.
Thanks for the trip through the past,
