  1. Could someone tell me what version of the Dr.Wu sword megatron is holding?

     

    Because here are the only versions I know of...

    -Silver with blue Gemstone "Prima's Sword"

    -Gold with red Gemstone "one prime is holding, presumable Nova's Blade"

    -Gunmetal/black with purpler Gemstone "Dark StarSaber"

    -Purple with yellow Gemstone. "Shattered Glass"

     

    The one megatron is holding in the pictures is like a flat grey with yellow gem... Sneak peek perhaps?

  2. Does anyone here happen to know a bit more about alkaline battery leaks? Because I got a figure on eBay and they apparently just left the battery's in it and let them explode and leak out. I didn't notice it at first when I was unpacking and inspecting my haul for today. Meaning I potentially touch the corrosion or the area around the corrosion and then touched the other figures in my lot, including a FP CA-05...

     

    Just how caustic and long lasting is alkaline battery corrosion usually? Like will just touching it then another figure be enough to pose any danger to the plastic on the second figure I touched in the long run? Also is the plastic on the figure that had the bettery blow up in a lost cause? See I am worried that even if I clean the plastic that a thin residual layer of the acid will continue to destroy the plastic. But then again I know nothing of the topic. So if anyone can chime in with more info or personal experience I would appreciate it.

  3. Ooo! Ooo! I have a question about something that one no one else noticed!

     

    When he designed Arcee's new form for the RID series did he base it on the 3rd party Perfect Effect figure? Or was it just a happy coincidence? Because both were revealed around the same time. But you have to admit that the designs are strikingly similar, plus arcee in the RID series seems to share the same weapons as the third party toy!

     

    For reference the exact figure I am talking about is PE-DX-01 RC.

  4. Too bad you just can not show up at their office and pick it up LOL

     

    Office? Have you google maps their address? They run the club out of a suburban house in Texas. Office... lulz.

     

    Houses can be converted into office buildings. Google music row in Nashville. A long street of house that are actually the offices of booking agents, financial mangers, record labels, and even recording studios.

     

    Lets not forget that most realty agents run their business out of a house. Most of the others usually rent out a box unit at a strip mall, but most I have seen run it out of a household, at least around here.

  5. I seem to recall somewhere reporting Aaron Archer hated the Robot Masters line, when someone asked him about possibility of domestic release (which would majorly affect release, as he was the head of US Transformers team at the time.)

     

    Hasbro did plan on releasing WST Soundwave as an accessory to another product, but the entire product was cancelled.

    That Bastard!

     

    I never got my hands on WST Soundwave.....missed out on that one. Would have been cool if they packaged SW with a 12 inch Cobra Commander as a Comic-Con exclusive or something like that, or one of the MP Seekers....

     

    Heerotoymaker and Chimungmung both sell the "reissue" WST soundwave. Its identical to the real thing QC wise, plus Heero's has a translucent tape deck the original did not have. There is also the fact Heero offers soundwave in colors takara never released. Such as SG, soundblaster, clear, glowing, clear orange, and I think gold. The only downside is that it doesn't come with the cardboard box and it does not have copywright stamps. But it sure as hell beats having to pay the prices for a real "probably incomplete" one on ebay.

  6. Am I the only one who is turned off by the double tape door on soundwave? I mean yeah its convenient to be able to store 2 cassettes at a time, but it also completely ruins the alt mode's look. :S

     

    Anyways, I was highly tempted to buy this set when I thought soundwave had the original door design... but now... I dunno. :S

     

    Also I find it hilarious that they are not showing off Emirate Xaaron Eject. Is he even part of the set?

  7. At least you guys GET Wal-marts. Stores here barely stock anything and at higher prices. You complain about $15 Deluxes. Try paying $25 for them.

     

    But it is sad to see that Arachnid got released but that Breakdown got left out. That is one awesome figure.

     

    I still don't know why they cant just put breakdown in a FE box or just include UM's hammer with him. Anyways we wont get the microns... because they filled the transformer blindpack slot with the kreon changers.

     

    Luckily were pretty safe voyager wise until the FOC voyagers start showing up in the fall.

  8. Does preorders work the same way as BBTS where you don't pay til the order is shipped or do you have to pre-pay like Amazon?

     

    if you open up a stack, then yes. but if you have no preorders in that stack, it will automatically ship.

     

    they have an FAQ thats pretty informative...

     

    I thought robot kingdom uses PayPal? If so then they take payment at the time the order is placed, preorder or instock.

  9. Humm good point, Airachnid didn't even grace most shelf's. Was there even a wave without BB or a BB repaint? XD

     

    What I never could understand is that they always, always, always, short pack the unique character and flood the case with a figure that has been in every wave up until that point in one way or another. I mean even when they got around to repacking soundwave for wave 4 he was still drifting alone in a sea of yellow plastic. Admitibley it was a repainted sea of yellow...but yellow none the less.

     

    I suppose the biggest disappointment is that this will probably cause the Prime show to be cut short. Unless of course they are still under the same mindset that you dont need a toyline driving your show.

  10. That's right folks, looks like the Prime toyline is now dead...at least in walmart.

     

    I checked by all of my local walmarts "about 4 of them" and all of them have either put out this strange case wave with 3-4 bb's 1 ratchet and 1 arcee and then stuffing the rest of the pegs with FOC or they have completely pulled the PRID Deluxe tags and replaced them with the FOC Generations tags.

     

    This seems to coincide with behavior with other retailers in my area. Kmart has filled the pegs with FOC leaving 3 bb's to sulk on the shelf below, Target hasnt stocked PRID in weeks, and TRU has also shown considerable favor to FOC and has not stocked PRID in quite-a-while.

     

     

    So I think we can all thank airachnid and her legendary failure of a existance for putting the breaks on Prime and ruining the toyline for everyone.

  11. Mind you, this was YEARS ago, but I had a laptop I sold, and VEHEMENTLY stated I only shipped to continental US and Canada. Some guy in India asks me how much to ship to him. I tell him I won't, and that I'd end remove any bids he placed. He sniped my auction, and I bluntly explained that I would not send an invoice, and I would not ship the item. There may even be menu options for reporting purchases by people outside of your listing requirements. You should be in the clear... you may just have to jump through some hoops.

     

    However, if they're willing to pay the shipping for it... and you tell them you won't ship until you get the money... I dunno, it might be worth it. Otherwise you can 2nd offer the other folks who had bid under this guy.

     

    There's always the possibility that he's going to try and pull a fast one, like send you the money, then try and claim the items aren't as described or some garbage. But if you're not accepting returns, and everything's as-is, and all sales are final, etc... I'd just base your call off whether he's got good feedback so far.

     

    GOOD LUCK.

     

    Well he does have a 100% Positive Feedback of 67. When I went to eBays resolution tab there is an option to cancel the transaction and since he has yet to pay, should i go ahead and do that? Oh and it was a Buy it Now items so there would be no 2nd Offer for them unfortunately.

     

    Update: Since he hasn't paid yet I sent him an invoice where I was able to adjust the shipping cost, so now he either pays the amount or he'll have no option for me to cancel the transactions. What I don't get is when I sent him the invoice it gave me his address listed in Pennsylvania. Talk about infuriating.

     

     

    He did that to get past any blocks the seller put on the listings to prevent international sales. If this guy does not pay within 24 hours file a "non-payment" case and get a strike on his account.
