@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 December 2016 - 05:00 PM)

But with Tauros you don't really have to worry about cars. ;)

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2016 - 04:20 PM)

At least you don't have to clean up after a bike.

@  Bass X0 : (04 December 2016 - 04:19 PM)

Bicycles? That's old school. Riding a Tauros is the thing to do these days.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 03:15 PM)

On a warm and sunny day, I could reach several dozen stores by bike.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 03:14 PM)

Lots of small, medium-sized and large cities within a short travelling distance of each other, and decent infrastructure.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 03:14 PM)

I guess that's the advantage of living in a decentralized major urban region.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 02:55 PM)

Multiples of each except for Scorch Strike Jetstorm.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 02:54 PM)

I've seen waves 1-3 of the original torpedo/cyclone/buzzsaw Mini-Cons plus a lone Scorch Strike Jetstorm from wave 4, as well as wave 1 of the Weaponizers.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 December 2016 - 02:33 PM)

I litteraly have to tracel 20 minutes out of town to the next town over if I want to even find the 5 dollar heads. Which of course.. I don't have the money to do *sulks in corner*

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2016 - 02:32 PM)

Yeah, still the first wave.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 December 2016 - 02:32 PM)

You have Minicons?

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2016 - 02:31 PM)

My Walmart has had three minicons and two Leader Skywarps and nothing else for about three months now.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 December 2016 - 02:31 PM)

No seriously... We have almost an entire aisle of Batman/Superman toys... and from what the stocker has told me...at least 10 more boxes of it in the back.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 December 2016 - 02:30 PM)

Wait.. you have Transformers? Around here it's "MAOR BATMANS!"

@  Steevy Maximus : (04 December 2016 - 02:18 PM)

Probably do

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 02:10 PM)

Seriously, I get the impression we actually have better distribution here around my part in Germany than most of the US does.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 12:06 PM)

Over 40 minutes of waiting on the phone to find out if they had Galvatron (I was aiming for a price match deal if they did). Along the way, I ended up connecting to two other customers who were waiting to be connected to other departments.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 12:00 PM)

Man, Walmart... that was an adventure of sorts yesterday...

@  wonko the sane? : (04 December 2016 - 11:57 AM)

I saw megatron at walmart, and astrotrain as well. Figured they were in the same case assortment. Now I don't know what to think.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 11:25 AM)

Still hoping to find Chromedome, and another shot at Rewind. Not part of the sale, but...

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 11:25 AM)

Wow, didn't even know those were out here yet.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 December 2016 - 11:15 AM)

I got me an astrotrain at that sale! Wanted a megatron too, but didn't find one.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 11:14 AM)

Went to TRU to take advantage of a 40% off deal they had on Sentinel Prime and Galvatron (I wanted the latter), but they were out of stock before the sale even began. =P Got a raincheck, at least.

@  BlackMax : (04 December 2016 - 08:33 AM)

Huh. Maybe I can figure a way to headcanon IDW Strafe into being AoE Strafe...

@  zephyrX9 : (04 December 2016 - 03:12 AM)

I'm sure under a different artist, she might look like something!

@  Verity Carlo : (04 December 2016 - 01:50 AM)

She....well, I'm not sure what she turns into, but it involves her face splitting in half.

@  Verity Carlo : (04 December 2016 - 01:49 AM)

There was also Strafe for Female Dinobots.

@  LordGigaIce : (03 December 2016 - 11:57 PM)

http://tfwiki.net/mediawiki/images2/3/33/Raptoricon_symbol.jpg

@  LordGigaIce : (03 December 2016 - 11:57 PM)

plus the best faction insignia ever

@  Dracula : (03 December 2016 - 11:27 PM)

but yeah we need toys of those Raptoricons yesterday.

@  Dracula : (03 December 2016 - 11:27 PM)

but BW also set the precedent that the gender of the scanned beast mode doesn't need to match the robot mode...so bright colors are fine ;)

@  BlackMax : (03 December 2016 - 11:04 PM)

That WOULD be a very good point, except Slash has got ~all the bright colors~, and in the bird world (which as we all know is also the dino world)rampant bright colors are a male thing.

@  LordGigaIce : (03 December 2016 - 10:56 PM)

There was that one Deluxe raptor mould from AoE....GET ON IT FUNPU....oh. Now I'm sad.

@  BlackMax : (03 December 2016 - 10:54 PM)

...I did not know bout this. Maybe I should amend my comment to "we need more female Dinotobts ~who have toys~."

@  Dracula : (03 December 2016 - 10:05 PM)

@BlackMax - did you know about the Raptoricons? Currently they've only been in fan club prose but they have pretty badass designs and are all female.

@  Rycochet : (03 December 2016 - 09:21 PM)

More female dinosaur transformers would be nice, but not specifically dinobots. Never been a fan of adding new guys to that specific subgroup, it feels a bit like when ageing rock bands add new members.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 December 2016 - 09:02 PM)

Wait, swoop isn't a woman?

@  BlackMax : (03 December 2016 - 07:44 PM)

Can I just take a moment and declare that we need some female Dinobots? Because we really need some female Dinobots.

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 December 2016 - 05:41 PM)

It was awesome seeing all those heroes together on screen, though. I hope Superman and Martian Manhunter get to participate in the next crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 December 2016 - 05:36 PM)

The solution was also just a bit too easy... the Dominators are apparently just big sissys, give 'em a poke with a caddle prod and they'll run off

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 December 2016 - 05:35 PM)

Yeah, I felt Arrow was the weakest entry... but after least season I kind of got turned off the show, and haven't watched any of the current season.

@  Jalaguy : (03 December 2016 - 05:34 PM)

It was good, but would've been better if Arrow hadn't co-opted its portion to do an relatively pointless anniversary episode.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 December 2016 - 05:31 PM)

Haven't seen any of the DC shows.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2016 - 05:24 PM)

How did y'all feel about this week's CW DC shows crossover? I thought it was great and reminiscent of comic books!

@  BlackMax : (03 December 2016 - 08:25 AM)

I'm still exploring all the possible mods for the PC version of Fallout New Vegas.

@  Pennpenn : (02 December 2016 - 11:03 PM)

So what, my species is perfectly happy to completely obliterate an undeveloped species to make servants, go full on ADVENT on more developed worlds, but for the middle of the road species suddenly my hands ar tied? Bah.

@  Pennpenn : (02 December 2016 - 10:58 PM)

It's annoying in Stellaris how "Pre-sentient" life forms can be Uplifted (turned into sentient and loyal races) and pre-space age civs can be messed around with and taken over, but you can't do anything about "Stone Age Primitives" so they just end up as a permanent debuff to a planet and end up squatting in valuable tiles.

@  Verity Carlo : (02 December 2016 - 10:53 PM)

To put it simply, everyone is in a race to become god.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (02 December 2016 - 10:42 PM)

I'm playing Tales of Zestiria instead.

@  Touch My Thighs : (02 December 2016 - 10:10 PM)

So basically I'm 15 hours into Final Fantasy XV and it seems like they took the edgy FF7-style game they were going to make, threw it out and made something actually fun instead.

TOY ADDICT Pre-show store beginning Tuesday - Botcon 2010

The Toy Addict will have a pre-show store at the Dolphin Hotel beginning Tuesday evening (6/22). We will have an ENORMOUS selection of everything from G1 to the present, so make sure to plan on stopping by the room. More details and sample pictures to come. We will be posting some additional information in this thread once we check in. Flyers will be posted in the lobby where we find a board.

You are welcomed to bring by anything you may want to trade in or sell outright.

For those that like to be in the "know" with hours and other happenings with our event, you can follow our updates on Twitter as well...

We are sorting through some of our G1 combiner stuff this weekend, so I thought I would post a quick pic of our mountains of G1 Combiners. Should have plenty of complete ones and individual limbs for sale.

Couldn't squeeze the Monstructors (think we have around 4 of them from near complete to complete) and Predakings (have 2 or 3 complete ones, plus tons of individuals) in there, but we will have them available at Botcon and our room event.

Well that makes me feel better about the boxes of TFs I have lying around waiting to be sold. I may have to track you down on Tuesday about those color changers and Devastators.

Ok, here is some more of the stuff we are bringing. Not sure how much of this we can squeeze into our room event, but hopefully we can get everything we have into our 3 booths at the show.

I have a lot of stuff I want to get rid of: All my ARMADA, lots of BEAST WARS/MACHINES, ALTERNATORS, MASK figures. All transformers have paperwork/instructions and some have boxes(depth charge/rampage/air attack primal). What sort of stuff are you interested in so I can leave some stuff and bring others?

EDIT: I have some gobots too.

We will be open @ 10:30 am and close around 11:30 PM. Obviously if people are buying around closing time, we will not be kicking people out. Lots of Transformers to see today if you aren't in the customizing class, going on a tour, or hitting the parks. icon-hotrod.gif

FYI - As far as meal breaks go, you will see our sign out in the hall when we are open. It will not be out when we are away.

I don't know how I'm going to get two medium/large boxes into the dolphin and up to the room. I'm at a hotel at the all-star resort. I don't think I'm going to ride the bus with that kinda cargo. Is it possible to park at the dolphin temporarily to carry the boxes to your room?

Yes, you can give the key to the vallet and tell them you registering. Then you can run up with the boxes.
