Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

Oh, dear. I'll try to bring Ravage into work at some point and snap some pics. Now my worry is that my MISC TM2 Prowl has shed his metal feathers in the packaging. I'm also kind of afraid to look at my MIBUB TM2 Megatron(while the box hadn't been opened, it did kind of look like it got kicked around...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

I'm suddenly afraid to look to hard at my Japanese Beast Wars Ravage. I don't want all of his shiny vac-metal black falling off......

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

“So lemme get this straight. Ya got Minerva.” Yes. “Ya got Chopperface. Fer some reason.” Yes. -sigh- Yes. . Just live with it, fuzzball. “Or keep complaining, Vermin. Then you won’t have to live with it anymore.” “An’ now ya go an’ get THIS GUY ?!?!?” Look, nobody’s made a Transmetal Rattrap yet. J...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Fans Hobby Mi- "Hel-LO, NURSE!!!" "Do not insult the female, Vermin." Are you two going to jump in every time I get a new figure? "If she looks like that, you betta believe it."

Re: [The video game thread]

Pachi Pachi on a Roll: Under normal circumstances, I probably would have given this game a pass. Unfortunately, getting physical games for my Vita is getting harder, what with Sony announcing that they’re going to stop making carts in the Asian market, which was the last place they were making them...

Re: [The video game thread]

PlayAsia has come through again, and now I have a couple of games that cost a lot on the secondary market for retail price. Or at least they used to, thanks to PlayAsia restocks and selling them for retail. Accel World vs Sword Art Online : I’ve watched Sword Art online, I’ve heard of Accel World, a...

Re: Who's buying all these Funko Pops?

I've got all of the Harley Quinn ones they put out for Birds of Prey(that I know about, anyway), a Gamestop Exclusive Harley, the Suicide Squad Harley, the original costume Harley, a '39 costume Batman, a Green Lantern Batman, a couple of the Batman Beyond ones(one came with the box set), and Ash fr...

Kingdom Warpath : I may need to go into a 12 step program. I went to Walmart to get a prescription, and left with both the prescription and Warpath. Don't get me wrong, he's a great figure, and I love the way the legs transform. If I had one complaint, it's that they don't use pins anymore. I thoug...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I never got the MP Grimlock, but from a couple of reviews I've seen the Studio Series one is a lot tighter and maybe a head and a half shorter. And a lot tighter. Now I have to figure out where to put FOC Grimlock since the SS'86 version has usurped his place. He gets to keep his sword, though. Due ...

Kingdom Blackarachnia : After looking at horribly inflated prices on Amazon($15 for Rattrap? $30 to $40 for Blackarachnia? What happened, Bezos’ ex take him back to court for more money? Looks like the Deep Space Pursuit set is still available, though), I figured I’d hit Walmart to see if they’d go...

Studio Series ‘86 Grimlock : Much to my surprise, FedEx delivers on Sunday, and they dropped a T-Rex on my porch. And oh, wow, is Grimmy impressive. He’s big. He’s bad. He hasn’t even noticed that I left Wheelie in the box. It’s the first Grimlock figure I’ve been able to do the “Oh, yeah? SEE HOW ...

Omega Labyrinth Z for the PS Vita: Let’s hear it for PlayAsia and they’re seemingly endless supply of Vita games.... although even they have their limits. I had ordered a different game originally, but after I ordered it, I got an email telling me it was out of stock, which wasn’t necessarily a bad...

Earthrise Blustreak: I now have all of the Datsuns again, and while Prowl is still generally my favorite(once ToyHax gets a set of labels out for him. He needs more badging. Hell, he needs badging period), I really like the looks of Bluestreak. The grey/black really works on him. Not only that, but...

Studio Series ‘86 Jazz : Thanks to Amazon, I got him. And I love the figure! It’s the first Studio Series figure I’ve gotten that doesn’t fight me with some part of the transformation. It does have the one thing I hated about Legend/Pretender Jazz, the roof mounting for the gun, although this time ...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

I'm beginning to think I'm the exception. The week before last, there was a mad dash to get tested because somebody at work got infected, brought it back, and infected a bunch of people, me included. After a week off to isolate(and kind of remote in to work), the worst I had was the sniffles. Everyb...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

So after perusing the aisles of the local Walmart, which when I initially looked down them seemed to be pretty bare, I discovered the reason that the pegs were empty. They hadn't bothered hanging any of the NetFlix Earthrise figures up. I got two, and the results are.... mixed? Bumblebee : Much like...
