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.

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

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

@  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)

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

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)

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

I'm wondering about the possibility of Fansproject putting out a recolor of the Protector armor to go with the recent club toy for Sideburn. I think that it is possible - they repainted and rereleased the City Commander armor, what, three or four times? In any case, I wouldn't complain if they did.

What about the rest of you?

I would definately want it (with a remolded head that looks similar to RID Sideburn). It definately would make business sense, and would likely go as fast as Shadow Scyther. The main problem I see, is scalpers, and if certain questionable business practices occur, like holding back stock to jack up the price later, if it is going to be an exclusive to a particular store... But I guess this has become the norm.

Any buyers would have to be quick on the draw. I think this will happen.

I don't see why they wouldn't, if they released one for the clear Rodimus.

But there are chances they won't either. They are more Side Burns then there are Gentei Wildriders and SG Rodimus figures combined I believe.

Shadow Scyther doesn't look half-bad on Sideburn. Plus, bonus Chain Scythe.

I think the red and gold one already works for "SUPER MODE!" ... but maybe Reprolables here and there adding colour fades would solve the drastic blue/red boarders

If they made a Dark clear blue it would work well for both, perhaps then they'd just need to include both faces

Well, right now I hear KO makers are looking into making a KO Protector, so I'd imagine they'd do recolors, even if the original Protector maker did not.

One that does 0 design and engineering work. So, again, hug those guys.

And I like how you use the phrase "the original Protector makers", as if anything's up for grabs. The original Protector makers are FansProject, the people that sunk the time and money into designing, engineering, and marketing the thing.

Except they're stealing a design and engineering from another third party

So, quite frankly, they can go and get stood on. I want to give money to Fansproject for making the damn thing, not Bob McKnockoffs

Please do so. Supporting Fansproject is a great thing. I was commenting that if Fansproject didn't do a recolor CHMS might do it. Yes, they steal molds. We know that. It's what CHMS does. I only buy stuff from them when it's impossible to get otherwise - ie hundreds or dollars for the real thing, or a new color no one else released it in. Obviously if Fansproject makes a Protector recolor it would be higher quality anyways.
