Re: Trying to upload photos...

Here I don't see that. Yeah, for most people attachments are turned on for forums where it's to help upload things for the site. Those files are all within the 2MB per file limit and it should allow five attachments per post. When I do error out all I get are the yellow triangle with a !. Which bro...

Re: unicron Armada, reflector and catalog brochures, promo posters

As an aside, I never saw the Energon repaint of Unicron here. Were they plentiful in Canada? I remember the Energon repaint of Overload as Ultra Magnus being basically non-existent in the US while completely swamping the UK Loads shelf-warming here, most of them next to the Armada one that was stil...

Re: unicron Armada, reflector and catalog brochures, promo posters

Gut feel is that fewer early-twenty-somethings are at uni discovering that they want mint versions of the toys they had as kids, whereas twenty years ago fast internet as a concept and eBay were caught up in that. Not sure how many early-twenty-somethings had the same experience with action figures ...

Faking Filmation: another 80s and general retro crowdfund

This one focusing a bit on MOTU. What's particularly interesting is that this seems to be a roll of the dice to get past a legal injunction on releasing an already-complete fan animation, in the wider context of talking about other cartoons of the era. I've gone for the digital bundle since physical...

Anyone come across any customs or media of the Prime/Convoy prototypes?

It's not as simple as painting a cab blue, both modes are quite differently proportioned.

Re: unicron Armada, reflector and catalog brochures, promo posters

As for whether it's more sought after, I wouldn't necessarily assume that. If you were the target age in 2003, you might not have major financial commitments but also are less likely to be in the income bracket that 80s kids tend to be. Once collectors of a particular fandom start dropping off in n...

Re: unicron Armada, reflector and catalog brochures, promo posters

No, not the ancient prototype (I forget whether that was v1 or v2, there's one with small satellites as well, which IIRC was in one of the Generations photo books, probably the deluxe edition of the book) or the Neo-Unicron one, there've been multiple G1 style repaints of the Armada one. Amazon vari...

Re: unicron Armada, reflector and catalog brochures, promo posters

Actual sale prices on eBay are absolutely the way to go. Everything else is just speculation, unless you know local dealers who are honest (i.e. buy in at a fixed percentage of average eBay actual sale prices). With Armada Unicron, last time I looked the most desirable versions of the mould (apart f...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

I don't think it makes much difference. Pfizer have fiddled the testing slightly in terms of reporting figures that cast the best light (most effective age group etc) the same as others. Roughly speaking, for the two dose ones the first dose is about equivalent to having been infected (but without t...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

If you can still find, there's more than one 3P upgrade kit -- pretty sure the one I got is the Dr Wu one. The later Blitzwing worked better as the purple G2 Megs, and if I ever see one at a sane price will probably pick it up. https://tfsource.com/dr-wu/dw-p17-blitz/ https://i.imgur.com/Yp3nI0j.jpg

Not sure if the account I've just removed with a load of COVID denying bullshit was a bot or a person, but the phrase "face diaper" clinched it.

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

The MP-08 Reximus Prime OS KO, the chrome version (which wasn't entirely evident from the auction photos; I think there were regular, US comic, chrome and a gold chrome deco of this OS KO?) The chrome isn't perfect and the reflectivity is a bit overpowering in hand so I'm thinking I might dry brush ...

Still, 79 after a triple heart by-pass 16 years ago isn't bad going. And if nothing else, I'm glad it was quick for him. If that doesn't all sound too flippant. I think it's a healthy way of looking at it. Sorry to hear anyway. Having parents who refused to give up smoking there's going to be an el...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Overseas is less relevant to the AZ, which has production sites here as long as basic materials can be sourced. Do wonder if they've got sufficient stocks for second doses of the Pfizer though. In a pinch, I suspect that mixing vaccines probably doesn't make that much difference -- and boosters late...

Re: Latest Music Purchases.

Mmm. Despite the release notes about the mixing the interaction does seem to have been cut for time, it's almost maxed out a pressed CD. Not particularly complaining as banter's more entertaining the first couple of times, but they could have gone for a double disc "normal edition" rather than the b...

I think I might have collected a bit too much over the years from the fact one of the large storage tubs is just accessories. Admittedly does include 3P combiner bits etc for teams I only wanted one member of, but it's still quite a lot of weapons (and probably mostly because 3P tend to bundle extra...
