  1. There's irony about selling a Transformer to someone in China. It's like I'm sending the toy home.

  2. 3rd Party Companies, just because you don't HAVE to adhere to toy saftey rules, doesn't mean it's okay to make fragile toys.

      That is why I do not bother with Impossible toys.

      Their stuff is pure crap anyway

      Well, I posted that after receiving my Mastermind Creations, Hearts of Steel Seekers. Nothing broke, but I sure did get nervous while transforming them.

      I had IT's Valkyrie and Nightbird

      literally fall apart in my hands.

      Before I was even going to try and

      Transform them

  3. Unless it's Encore, Masterpiece, or 3rd party, I'm done collecting new Transformers.

      I am with you but could probably pass on most 3rd party stuff

  4. For a broken GDO Cliffjumper, Hasbro sent me a Generations Skullgrin. I donated Skullgrin, but I'm never going to bother with Hasbro again regarding broken toys. I'm just going to return it to the store and let them deal with it.

      there's never a guarantee they'll have your broken item in stock. I got lucky when i sent my Generations Ironhide in and got Ironhide back. But didn't fair so well with omne of my RID Trains. They sent me a different one back. I think i ended up taking the one they sent me to a store and just swapped it out. Back in the 90's, i sent an X-Force Shatterstar 2 to Toybixand got a Shatterstar 1.... that was fun.

      I know. I did expect something more current though, even the crappy RiD Bumblebee.

  5. Takara-Tomy, please, please reissue Overlord.

    1. Blitz-Wing

      Blitz-Wing

      Don't think it will happen. I remember reading something about the dies being damaged beyond repair...

      Make a thread please

      It's not a subject worthy of a thread, it's just an expression of frustration. Even the junkers on ebay cost a lot of money.

  6. As mildly tempting as it may be, I'm not going to buy TFP Dreadwing. I've decided to say "No" to "jet hands".

      Your missing out on a great robot figure

    3. MikePrime

      MikePrime

      Eh, robot mode. If Dreadwing had nice, closed fists that could be folded away for the jet mode, he wouldn't have "jet hands". But no, he needs to have dramatic claws.

      Well I like to display in Robot mode, so Jet hands has no bearing when it comes to deciding wheather or not to add a figure to the collection

  7. You know it's hot when the rub signs show the faction symbols all on their own.

  8. Oh G1 Bludgeon, why are you so ugly yet so expensive? (sigh)

    1. Blitz-Wing

      Blitz-Wing

      Goes against everything you learned in a bar, doesn't it?

  9. Would it be unwise to bet on the chance that the TFCC store will have ANY Botcon 2012 toys after the convention is over?

      What? I would have bought a bunch of them and made my money back :P. Dont see them in the store thogh :(

    3. puma

      I don't think they had too many. I was going to buy some Saturday but I think they were all already gone.

      Pfftt. I live in Florida, So I'm not going to see any of wave two for anothe month. :P

  10. Do you ever get a little paranoid when a person with an ebay store wins your ebay auctions?

    1. Blitz-Wing

      Blitz-Wing

      Nah, just means they're gonna flip it. The dirtbags

  11. Between the keyword spamming, PVC figures, and now the BotCon toy, it's going to be a pain in the rear to search for G1 Overlord on ebay.

  12. If Hasbro had made TFC Hercules and charged $30 per Constructicon, I think people would still say that it costs too much.

  13. I saw last year's CostCo exclusive Supreme Class movie Bumblebee at Marshall's today. It's $34.99. They had one.

  14. Anyone else think that the pictures of MP-10 are lousy at selling the toy? Nothing about it looks impressive. Are there secrets that we aren't supposed to know until it's release?

    1. jeffafa

      jeffafa

      I am with you 100% - I cant see ANY reason this thing can be worth the price tag.

    2. hthrun

      I'd rather spend that amount of money on the Optimus DMK model.

  15. The folks commenting over at the TFSource Facebook page must be the most blindly cheerful people on the face of the Earth. They like anything. LOL.

      oh wow, I like your comment Mikeprime, keep up the fantasric work dude, you rock!

  16. A lady's version of Die Hard is on Lifetime Network right now.

      puma

      hahaha. what!?

  17. Was there ever supposed to be Transformers United Windcharger? No online store that sells Japanese Transformers has a pre-order for one.

    1. Sparkless

      Sparkless

      nothing was ever announced abotu Windcharger coming out in Japan

  18. MP Rodimus Prime has arrived.

    1. jeffafa

      jeffafa

      Lucky! - if not for this stupid storm I would have mine today also.

    2. Hip-Hoptimus Rime

      Hip-Hoptimus Rime

      If not for my mortgage I would have him too!

      JEALOUS! I want one soooooooo bad!

       

  19. Thank you Blitz-Wing for locking that stupid WFC/Exodus/Prime thread.

  20. Like I said in my post, I don't think anyone was going to sing the praises of Bumblemus for posting that schedule. If anyone assumed it was his, then that's their business, but most news posted here comes from somewhere else and I think most of us know that.

  21. I got a G1 Brainstorm today and the hip joints were locked up. The legs almost couldn't move. I sprayed the joint with WD-40 and now they work like new.

      Careful dude, that stuff can damage some plastics... which you would already know by now if it damaged yours... but you know... just case :)

  22. I tried Roadbots once. They're lousy. I did get them in a similar BBTS clearance sale, so didn't feel bad about throwing them into the recycling can
