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.

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.

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?

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.
