Oh, it's only backups in "Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye". Still. Onboard.

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

@  Arthur Burlo : (22 July 2016 - 06:11 PM)

"about time" ???????????????????? :(

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2016 - 05:08 PM)

There was a shooting near a shopping mall in Munich, currently eight or nine people are dead. Three suspects, still at large.

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2016 - 05:07 PM)

About time...

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2016 - 05:07 PM)

So now it's Germany's turn to be the target of what appears to be aterrorist attack.

@  Nutjob R/T : (22 July 2016 - 02:44 PM)

Which is kinda... I preordered the new VF-2ss, and then before it shipped there was the exclusive version with the SAP pack that was only open for two days of orders. And then I got the naked VF2ss and it's... Not... Good.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 July 2016 - 12:18 AM)

Yeah, Japanese online sellers seem to take it very seriously, in my experience. When you commit to something, it's expected that you follow through on it, and cancelled transactions seem to be frowned upon. However, I've never dealt with more courteous or considerate sellers than those in Japan; some have even enclosed a small gift item in the package on occasion.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:44 PM)

Nothing really happened, I just got an email saying I shouldn't do that.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:43 PM)

But I ended up buying it later since it got delayed.

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 03:43 PM)

and what did they do?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:42 PM)

I've cancelled something with them once.

@  Nutjob R/T : (21 July 2016 - 03:27 PM)

AmiAmi is nice but if you preorder you gotta friggin' MEAN it

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 03:17 PM)

Yep, I ordered a bunch of Gundam kits from them earlier this year. The shipping was high but I had to do EMS due to the weight of the package

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 03:09 PM)

and amiami is a reputable site? this is the first time i'm using them.

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 02:56 PM)

Oh! Nice. I guess I thought SAL was always untracked.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 01:39 PM)

Registered means it has tracking.

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 01:26 PM)

Yeah it's just slower and doesn't have tracking...usually the best economic option

@  Benbot : (21 July 2016 - 01:07 PM)

SAL is just fine

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 01:06 PM)

unless anybody has problems with "SAL Small Packet (Registered)".

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 01:03 PM)

Okay, I got it down to 11,930 (£85) with SAL Small Packet (Registered). Thats better. £101 would be too much for two Deluxes and a Voyager even with better (IMO) color schemes.

@  MEDdMI : (21 July 2016 - 01:02 PM)

That's about 101.55 British pounds

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 12:58 PM)

Is 14,200 Yen worth it for Takara Skull, Hardhead and Galvatron with shipping to the UK from amiami?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2016 - 11:38 AM)

I doubt anyone takes it seriously that Primax 1005.19 Gamma is indeed the original universe. That author comment is bound to be contradicted by some multiverse story down the road, anyway. Even Vector Prime in AVP said that even if it were true, there is no way for him or his colleagues to discern so, which obviates any substantial impact of "Elegant Chaos".

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 10:48 AM)

I remember my silly haunted toy thread, 10 people voted 1 star or so sniff http://www.allspark....d-transformers/ I don't believe in haunted stuff but I still made the thread for the lulz.

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 10:42 AM)

no, he left it ambigious actually.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 10:42 AM)

So someone already contradicted him.

@  Locoman : (21 July 2016 - 10:41 AM)

So really who can say

@  Locoman : (21 July 2016 - 10:41 AM)

But Vector Prime said that it just altered THAT universe's properties, allowing for the development of things like the Functionist world

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 10:19 AM)

I know he didn't create the IDW universe but he's the writer of one of its titles, that's why I said "his universe".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 10:15 AM)

Also it's not exactly "his (Roberts') universe" since Barber exists, even if you ignore all the earlier IDW stuff.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 10:13 AM)

And it's specifically the intent rather than something that's actually in the story.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 10:11 AM)

I didn't listen to the podcast but the transcript has a bunch of laughing and he does specify "until someone can contradict me".

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 09:51 AM)

james roberts says it did.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 09:43 AM)

Perceptor said that the briefcase made alternate universes possible or something but it's not like Perceptor actually knows how all this works.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 09:42 AM)

It... didn't?

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 09:37 AM)

So, wait does Elegant Chaos story made the IDW universe the main TF continuity? What with it being the base universe. This sucks, there shouldn't be a main universe wtf, James Roberts is just trying to make his universe the most important one. If there has to be a main universe (which I don't think there should) it has to be the G1 cartoon.

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 08:32 AM)

You can drop them, if they are fresh.

@  Benbot : (21 July 2016 - 07:40 AM)

Did you know there are over 100 things you can do with beets?

@  Benbot : (21 July 2016 - 07:30 AM)

The amazing beet

@  Benbot : (21 July 2016 - 07:30 AM)

Sounds like you guys are talking about beets!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 July 2016 - 01:03 AM)

Boilem mashem stickem in a stew...

@  The Doctor Who : (20 July 2016 - 07:36 PM)

I could totally see toasting them, smashing them up and using for ice cream topping.

@  MEDdMI : (20 July 2016 - 07:14 PM)

Chop them up, throw it on some cake batter, use as pie crust.... (just kidding, never tried that but someone probably has)

@  MEDdMI : (20 July 2016 - 07:13 PM)

You can microwave them, too!

The problem is that only one day comes up as booked up. Sunday night, IIRC? So it will tell you that you can't reserve the block for that rate because the one date is messing up. I called on the phone and got them to do it, but I'm paying the normal rate for Sunday night, which is $20 extra. I'll switch that over later, I guess, or try to, after they get things sorted out.

You is brilliant. It worked when I didn't try to book for Sunday.

Yeah, reserved right after the Hall of Fame dinner. Had to phone my brother in Tenneesse to get me the number and I'm in. The fact that I left when they started re-showing the tribute vids might've had something to do with it.

I'm hoping that it's the final exodus from the dissolving Gobots Universe into Primax proper, as shown in some of the OTFCC fictions (it's explained that the destruction of Unicron in the Marvel Comics toy line caused the parallel reality that was Challenge of the Gobots to collapse). So far, a half-dozen refugees have escaped into the Classics-verse storyline, with more undoubtedly on their way. This could be what the "Invasion" is...

If they do White Mocha's digibash of Transformers Animated figures into Gobots, I'd buy that and proudly display it with my Classics. The different aesthetic works perfectly for displaying the difference between Gobots and Transformers.

speaking of hall of fame dinner... Back in the day at Botcon 2000, i attended the fan appreciation dinner on Friday night with Rockman666 and his wife( don't remember her online handle anymore ), and we all recieved these Fan appreciation dinner plates. as far as i know, there is only like 300 of these in exsistence, but i could be wrong about that number. To find out the exact number, you would have to write to Jon or Karl Hartman or Glen Hallit...

I am selling mine. with the original box, signed by most of the "special guest" voice actors from that convention. the plate has never been removed from the plastic, and it is an incredible work of art

I sure hope I can make the 2011 con now. I just got a chance to apply for an assistant principal job for a high school with about 3000 students and if I get it, we'll be doing graduation that weekend. Hmmm. More money or Botcon? icon-fire.gif

We had Cincinnati in 2008. That's not that long ago. It was in Kentucky in 2006, and the OTFCCs were in Chicago in 03 and 04.

Don't get me wrong, I'd sure like it in my backyard again too, but every 2-3 years is plenty often to go to the same general area. I'll actually go ahead and give FunPub some credit here for mixing it up pretty darn well overall.
