Imagination Archives | Compiled by Jeff Harris
Imagine If isn't a critical section of TXB like the late HFIL section was, but rather a look at what could have been and what should have been. Acquisitions that could have been made. Partnerships that could have developed. Properties they should have held on to. I'm sure execs who were involved and who came after them often have their thoughts of "could have beens." Think of Imagine If as a cross between Marvel's What If . . . and DC's Elseworlds mixed inside The Twilight Zone with yours truly playing a twisted version of Rod Serling.

As is any male member of the COTE (Children of the Eighties), I'm a fan of action figures. In modern times, action figure development and design has advanced. In the same time, certain creators feel the need to customize them to their whims. Using artistic skills, knowledge of design patterns, a vivid imagination, and powered by the love of creation, these scratchbuilders tend to create custom action figures that they show off with pride.
Now, I'm not making custom action figures (yet), but in this section, I'm scratchbuilding networks and concepts from the ground up from scratch. After analyzing what they are, I rebuild it from scratch to the way I feel they should be. It's kind of like making fantasy schedules (which will also have a place here), only gone mad and more in-depth.
That's what SCRATCHBUILDING is all about. Hope you all enjoy it.
