"Black Desert Online" here..

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 December 2016 - 06:31 PM)

I'm seeing a Dell ad right now

@  Varnon : (10 December 2016 - 05:44 PM)

I see the adds fine... but oh lort, what did I click on to make ladychinesedate and muslimmatrimonial ads come up?

@  ShadowMan024 : (10 December 2016 - 05:39 PM)

Why am I bringing that up? Because it also probably echoes how Marvel feels about the DC cinematic universe.

Walt Disney on Fleischer Studios' Gulliver's Travels: "We can do better than that with our second-string animators."

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2016 - 05:29 PM)

I don't see any ads

@  Kalidor : (10 December 2016 - 04:54 PM)

Can you guys see the google ads? I tried to get rid of the invasive video ads but I feel like I broke something

@  Rycochet : (10 December 2016 - 06:00 AM)

I always find the subscriber numbers given by places like Facebook and Youtube highly dubious. He may have 50 million accounts subscribing to his videos, but how many of those actually watch, how many are unique people and not a 13 year old's 16 different youtube accounts and so on and so forth.

@  Blacknife : (10 December 2016 - 02:14 AM)

I suppose my guilty pleasure is Ijustine...so yeah...*thingsoneshouldn'tadmit

@  Waspinator : (10 December 2016 - 01:50 AM)

Honestly, there's people considered celebrities for much worse reasons.

@  Ms Virion : (10 December 2016 - 01:01 AM)

I don't know, if 50 million people all watch someone's content, I'm pretty sure they are.

@  Confuzor : (10 December 2016 - 12:47 AM)

Mr the Frog, we all discussed this and agreed "A youtube person is not a celebrity"

@  OrionPax44 : (09 December 2016 - 05:16 PM)

Only reason I know that name is due to my 13 year old would keep talking about him. He can go by by for all I care.

@  Rycochet : (09 December 2016 - 12:16 PM)

I doubt it's to help anyone but himself, by pointing out he can and will possibly totally delete his channel and getting a lot of buzz online for it, I'm sure he's hoping some other internet company or media dinosaur is going to throw money around to get him on board.

@  The Doctor Who : (09 December 2016 - 12:11 PM)

I mean, YouTube does have some really awful and content-creator-unfriendly policies, but, uh, I don't see what that would do to help...

@  Benbot : (09 December 2016 - 11:54 AM)

To protest how Youtube promotes certain videos and channels over others. Because...he doesn't get enough views...?

@  unluckiness : (09 December 2016 - 11:48 AM)

Why would he delete a source of income for basically doing nothing?

@  Dracula : (09 December 2016 - 11:43 AM)

He's a guy that does let's plays, and he claimed he'd delete his channel in protest of YouTube if he reached...what, 50M subscribers?

@  Rycochet : (09 December 2016 - 11:34 AM)

The internet equivelant of someone jangling keys and making a silly voice to amuse a toddler.

@  Benbot : (09 December 2016 - 11:30 AM)

Sh Shrapnel Pig can have an army of clones of himself and chew through reinforced metal doors? I am officially afraid now.

Shrapnel pig, Shrapnel Pig does whatever a Shrapnel can!

@  BlackMax : (08 December 2016 - 06:03 PM)

"Enjoy your shrapnel pig" is now a phrase I will work at random into conversation.

@  Rycochet : (08 December 2016 - 06:01 PM)

Enjoy your shrapnel pig, kids!

How about BWN Randy? GPS paired with a springloaded gimmick.

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 December 2016 - 05:10 PM)

Donate one of the older figures made entirely of gold plastic. :wtf

@  ShadowMan024 : (08 December 2016 - 04:49 PM)

Okay, that's going way too far.

@  Locoman : (08 December 2016 - 04:38 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 December 2016 - 04:36 PM)

Okay now you're just taking this too far.

@  ShadowMan024 : (08 December 2016 - 04:32 PM)

And if you wanna go to hell, you'll donate a Tuner Mudflap.

@  Bass X0 : (08 December 2016 - 04:08 PM)

and if you're really feeling abusive, you will give the gift of Generations Cheetor. probably still some shelf-warming a store somewhere

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 December 2016 - 01:51 PM)

In that case, ALL the Rattraps.

@  Rycochet : (08 December 2016 - 10:47 AM)

Toys for tots you hate.

@  unluckiness : (08 December 2016 - 09:12 AM)

Poor tots, having to transform that.

@  Steevy Maximus : (08 December 2016 - 12:04 AM)

If Rattrap is still there, I'll just buy it for Toys for Tots. Two plus years is too long to see a figure shelfwarm

@  The Doctor Who : (07 December 2016 - 09:24 PM)

@  Telly : (07 December 2016 - 09:06 PM)

@  D.M : (07 December 2016 - 08:59 PM)

alright so here's the skinny.
My daughter who is in kindergarden brought home an invitation to a kids birthday party that is in her class.
I called and RSVPd to it because she "really really really really REALLY!!!" wanted to go to the party. I asked the kids mother what kind of toys he like and she said that I didn't need to bring anything.
My budget is pretty tight however being the big geek who can't disappoint a kid on his birthday.
I asked my daughter what he likes. She told me he's always wearing TF, and spongebob shirts.
So me being the hardcore tf collector I am, I think I can hook the kid up.
Now here is where I need the help.
The kid is turning 6, and I've got plenty of in box stuff that is just eating space.
here is the question.
Do you think he'd like an
A 2007 movie allspark blue Deluxe new Cammero BumbleBee (target exclusive I picked up for a song on clearance) or B the reveal the shield redco of classic's BumbleBee?
C go to walmart and grab 1 autobot and 1 decpitcon legends class figure off the shelve and give them to him. (So if he has a brother will be able to 'fight' each other)

I'm leaning towards that reveal the shield BumbleBee, but I want an opinion other than my own here. The party is at 2 in the afternoon tomorrow
thanks guys

I voted Classics BB. it's a good solid mold that wont come apart on a kid, its durable, AND it is easy enough to Transform that they shouldn't have an issue doing it, which can be a problem with movie toys sometimes, and it has that "better than the movie" stuff classic TF look.

ZacWilliam, Really the first 2 are whats important but 3 isn't a bad thing either IMO.
Ever wonder about the speed of Turbofoxes?

LOL
I'm afraid I don't know the kids folks quite that well.
I'd offer up the 2007 movie redco of ultra red alert if I did

Given his age and the current complexity of TF toys, I'd say a few Animated Activators, if you can still score em.

You're far too young to be this bitter and angry at the world....

I'm reading that with Roy's voice. Heck, I read everything you post in a laconic Irish accent.

RTS Bumblebee. For the reasons already stated. I almost went with the 2 legends, but as I kid I think I would have wanted one regular sized guy over 2 small guys whi have bigger versions.

RtS Bumblebee is both easier to transform and less likely to be a mold he's already got.

I would recommend a PCC 5-pack. Target has them on sale for $10!

Not my finest work, but when life gives you lemons, they're yellow so just paint black stripes on them and call them Bumblebee. Kids will buy them.

lol I can't believe I forgot that part in the time it took me to write something... boy I must have been way to multitasking, Sorry Rat.

icon-fire.gif that aside -> lol yeah just put aside the suggested kidnapping icon-primal.gif

as a collector I'd suggest away from a Bumblebee of any sort, because I'm tired of seeing him everywhere... but as somebody who remembers being six, the one I can see everywhere is the one I want.

So i vote rts Bee...

I voter two legends because then right off the bat he's got two robots to fight each other. Get Prime and Megatron if you can.
