The top banner seems to disappear and reappear for me.

@  Arazyr : (31 August 2016 - 09:24 AM)

Whenever I want to go to BBTS or TFS sites I make sure to use the banner ads here. 8^)

@  Dracula : (31 August 2016 - 08:25 AM)

Speaking of ads, I have adblock turned off for allspark and I've noticed the top banner ad on the forums tends to be broken. Today I don't see it at all. Might just be me though.

@  Kalidor : (31 August 2016 - 01:28 AM)

Clicking on ads and visiting sponsor links helps keep the lights on, if you want a cheap and easy way to help.

Peter Ostrum should return in a new Chocolate Factory movie where Charlie Bucket is the 60 year old owner planning to pass his Chocolate Factory to a lucky child as Willy Wonka had done for him all those years ago. Obviously it wouldn't be based on any existing story, just a new continuation of the original without being a remake.

@  Bass X0 : (29 August 2016 - 01:30 PM)

Duckman is indeed better than Beast Wars.

@  Telly : (29 August 2016 - 01:12 PM)

well i went to dollar general looking for the beast wars dvd. didnt find them. but i found something BETTER: seasons 1 and 2 of duckman!!! and for only $2.95!

Most google ads base their content on sites you've visited - so you're probably visiting a lot of news sites.

My preorder from March has finally been fulfilled! I got in at the old price, now they have them listed for 20 bucks more ($75)...yikes.
Seems there are only 14 left in stock.

Love to own these. Would order them right now... But $75 is out of my purchase window at the moment. Sigh.

As soon as I saw BBTS put them back up on the front page for pre-order almost a couple months back, I put in an order. I followed the ebay auctions for a while, and unfortunately, $75 + shipping is cheap compared to those. Plus I'd have to deal with overseas shipping.

If I had known way back when, I would bought them from BBTS when they were first released. Primus knows I had the opportunity.

edit: My pre-order's been filled too. icon-hotrod.gif

Yeah, they are gauging the price a bit here, but honestly who knows what Hasbro will do with those molds. Look at the seekers and how many years it took Hasbro to get them all out.

If I was interested in those two, I would probably still spring for this if I were you. Probably still going to be a good deal in the long run.

Whether we see this mold released outside of Japan depends on when they bring the Scout class back. But that could take years.

It doesn't really. Hasbro does lots of multi-figure pack sets, especially around the holidays. The contents of those don't have to comply to any of the regular size classes. They could very easily do a "Sherman Dam Attack" box that contains Frenzy, Rumble, and Ravage vs. Hound and Windcharger or any smaller combination thereof.

-ZacWilliam, Hasbro uses the size classes to breakdown the regular line but they put out plenty of products outside that general framework (scouts to Big Lots type discount stores for another example). They just need to decide they want to and/or find a store that would take it as an exclusive. That could happen literally anytime.

Proper altmodes?
Proper quality and safety testing?
Arms that actually transform into piledrivers, instead of being partsfomery bits?

For the 5$ difference between the two, I'd go with Takara's.

I have the complete opposite opinion. I think the official ones are a ton better than those tiny little things that turn into guns. Plus lots of people broke theirs.
