    Damn shame. He used to drive me nuts but he clearly got a lot from his engagement in the hobby.
    As Mike says passionate and curious. RIP

    Think he was a member long before that with a different number after his name.
    Not sure if he ever got round to painting anything.
    His particular thing was asking questions that in equal measure got people irritated but also responding :D
    Over the years the answers to the questions he asked must have built up a considerable resource of information.
    We are gradually losing characters from the planet that add a much needed element of fun to the site.

    Definitely. Passion lost is sad...look at sport and too often the real characters were of a generation past

    Oh no. Despite suffering from the effects of stroke, Marc was a rabid figure fan and always had a question to spark thought. He had come to terms with his troubles by not allowing them to slow his love of figures down. A fixture in my little figure world and

    ...will miss his sometimes maddening messages.

    I think Marc may have been a member before that, but created a new login for himself then. He was a member of Timelines-Historica, too. His handle was "mcsneed". For a while, too, his avatar was Calvin & Hobbes. I want to say that he changed his username (ie, started a different account) at Timelines, too.
    I was just wondering recently what he was up to, because I hadn't seen any posts from him for a couple of months. Marc was also a regular at MFCA.
    Very sad that he's passed.

    A post-script, because I just saw Meticulous' post:

    Yes, that's what I was thinking of.

    Maybe you missed the part about having had a stroke.

    I''m sorry to read this. I exchanged messages with him a few times here & over on Timelines. He did have a few difficulties and I know that his communications and questions exasperated some to the point of making unpleasant comments but he was a genuine enthusiast.

    Rest in peace Marc.

    Not a name or forum handle that are familiar to me, but judging from the comments above he seems to have made a bit of an impression with some guys and was a friend to others, and it's always sad when we lose one of our own. R.I.P.
