The End Cap Buddy Program

Recommended Posts



This did not go as expected, I appreciate everyone's opinion, they all matter to me, but this has just gotten out of hand.

What I expected to see was posts and posts of fellow fans listing their wants, and a few posts here and there somewhere along the lines of "hey (i.n.h.) I got your back, pm me" or something to that extent.

Anyway, thanks to all for the input and opinions expressed in this thread and the other one.


All I ask is that you guys just let this thread die.

Nah, it's not over persay, we all as individuals can continue the Buddy Program, but this thread kinda got shot to hell with the bickering/one-ups-manship going back and forth (wich I participated in myself :redface)

I think that doing the whole end cap buddy thing in one thread is going to be messy. Too many people will be posting. I think it would be better if everyone made their own thread and at the beginning or end of your post you can say that you're part of the ECBP.

Boo! This was a good idea. List just continue Listing and get over it.




It's a one stop thread which IMO is nice and I can't think of a single reason why it should die.


To all interested just feel free to post as Plowman said and wait paitently for people to notice. Also feel free to update want lists and such so people don't get confused with what is still needed and what is not.


Later. :thumb

I think this buddy system has a lot of merit and would help plenty of collectors. Anyone willing to Starscream about not making any extra money on it is just a scalper not getting their way.


I've traded and sold plenty of times at cost with no markup (other than PayPal fees because they Transufomah! you and you shouldn't have to lose money to please another person.)


If you can't do it equally, you're just a cold hearted, money driven, Scrooge.

a real easy way to do this would be to set up a second thread where each Buddy has one post, that can be edited whenever they need.


So if there's 10 buddies, there'd be ten posts, and the Buddies would check the thread to see who's looking for what (he'd only have those 10 posts to go through), and go from there.


So my Maximo Prime post would say:


As of 7-12-06, I'm looking for Alt Prime, and Alt Mirage.  I live in Philly.


And that's it... no one posts anything at all but what they're looking for.  They could also include (in the same post) what they see a lot of.  that, however, might get redundant, but who cares, it's all in one post.


So the post might look like:

As of 7-12-06, I'm looking for Alt Prime, and Alt Mirage.  There's lots of CD Red alerts here, and also lots of C-Metroplexes.  I live in Philly.


What do you think?

Jesus, what a wreck.


Rosedoggy, stop being a douche! This isn't the place. If you want to dog it then go make another thread.




Not the discussion place for such a thing-- that's what the first post was for!


Either two things need to happen:


1) Mods, would you be able to delete every non-this-threads-intention post of people Starscreaming so that we can get back to trying this thing out




2) Lock this thread and make a new *stickied* one where people are only posting their wishlists and not what the think about the topic.


That would be great.


Look Rosey et all-- posting for two pages about how this isn't going to work is a real ass-sack way to make it not work. Just let it run it's course and see. If you don't want it to work because of some personal investment, I don't know what to say. But otherwise, there's really no reason not to just shut the hell up and let everything happen.

    • Studio Series Age of Extinction Galvatron Voyager figure.  Not perfect but so much better than the old 2014 shellformer!   
    • Look, I agree with you. The problem is not that he is buying stolen material/merchandise, which it is a problem, he knowingly engages in, it is that he keeps doing it, and that people keep viewing his content, knowing full well that they are watching stolen figures being represented to them.
    • Thnaks to TFND group who have posted a look at the last Transformers Wreck’n Rule release, G2 Leadfoot and Masterdominus. This completes the special exclusive Wreckers Hammer that a part of was included in each of the 5 releases. Read on to see the completed hammer now these sets are finally shipping out.

    • He definitely has an early prototype. But he just keeps going on as if this is 100% what we're going to get. How does he know? It's a factory test shot that was smuggled out of the factory before it was finished or had all of its accessories. It wouldn't be the first time he showed off things that were wrong. Wasn't Hubcap supposed to come with the small round silver cannon piece from Brunt? I mean, that's what his had right? Several of his were also missing stuff outright. So who is he trying to fool? We all know these are "stolen" copies. Yeah he might have purchased them which to him makes them legit but they were stolen nonetheless. Therefore you do did not get it legitimately. Just ask any Pawn show owner who purchased items they didn't know were stolen. I'm not trying to argue this point though, just that nothing about his copy means that it's what we should expect at retail. I think that the colors will be more uniform at retail. Or at least, from one piece to the other as seen on the roof that he pointed out. I also think that maybe they ran or assembled pieces from both tooling for this and that's why there's the two tabs on top of the van. Those might be pieces from the Ratchet version and were never meant for Ironhide. Also there's no way they can't or won't budget in the yellow stripe. If they managed to sell Earthrise Ironhide at deluxe then they can budget in that yellow stripe for SS86 Ironhide and maybe even another gun. But really though, Earthrise Ironhide himself should be a voyager due to that added roof. Siege Ironhide was large for a deluxe even if it was stretched out like Impactor was but then they put in the roof piece which added another 7 parts at least to the total as well as the additional paint that was required. Man that pelvic flap is a let down though. I will be modding mine to be separate pieces. There's more than enough connection parts to allow for that. I cut off the hood and the bumper piece from my Earthrise Arcee so cutting that skirt plate into three won't be much trouble. Just need a fresh single edged straight razor.
