I like Cancer in Masterforce. Otherwise it's the worst and I don't understand how it keeps getting cast in everything

@  Plokatron : (05 February 2016 - 02:34 AM)

No Cancer is Disgraceful, Disgusting and Despicable! Blasted genetic abnormality thinking it owns the place. I worry for any who have it this year. 2016 looks to be a bad year for cancer sufferers.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Yes but not Ghost slime. Just human and Bug slime.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 06:03 PM)

It doesn't matter what color slime NYC has, it's still been covered in slime for its entire existence.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 03:05 PM)

Not to mention the series is getting a reboot this year. In July so none of that junk counts.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:32 PM)

Not that kind of slime!!! Has New York ever been pink?! No that city has so much brown that it makes COD look bright and colorful.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 02:27 PM)

New York's ALWAYS been covered with slime.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:21 PM)

Also since New York wasn't covered in slime back in 89 it's quite moot isn't it?

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:15 PM)

Stupid ideas that I can't understand why we keep bring it up. Are we humans just that desperate to panic ourselves?

Oh, yeah, the primaries. Yup, that's a thing that's happening. But it won't end the world till new shmuck is elected, and even then it depends on who.

@  Touch My Thighs : (01 February 2016 - 09:41 AM)

Invite them to join in. This either results in fun times or them giving you a wide berth. Both win wins in my book.

I would cancel my BBTS preorder but I got a 1.5 box so I could get Cliffjumper. Somehow I suspect that while finding Prime toys in a TRU store will be difficult, finding one somewhat short-packed toy in a refresh case will be next to impossible. I guess if they put him online I could pick him up, but not sure it would be worth it. If I can sell my extra deluxes on Ebay for a decent amount, I can get a better-than retail price:

Deluxe 1.5 case after shipping estimate: 109.49
Sell:
BB 14.99
BB 14.99
SS 16.99
CJ 20.99
Cost of remaining figures: 41.53 = $10.38/figure for 4 deluxes. Better than TRU prices or TRU.com prices if shipping was free, and that's if they even had Cliffy available.

Voyagers aren't quite as attractive but again, I anticipate Bulkhead may be tough to come by:
Voyager case after shipping estimate: 104.49
Prime 25
Prime 25
Cost of remaining figures: 54.49 = $27.25 per figure. TRU price is usually $19.99 and right now Voyagers are on sale for $15 on the website.

They've been out in Toronto a couple of days now. Ironically, your BBTS orders were probably a good idea. I finally went down to my local TRU today, and aside from the Entertainment Pack, all they had were like 10+ bumblebees. All the other deluxes were already gone.

I'm sticking with my pre-orders for now. There's exactly one Toys R Us within regular driving distance of where I live and it's a mini-sized store in one of those shopping mall center things. Not exactly somewhere that's going to have a huge selection of stuff.

That, and I'm short of money at this time, so having it reserved for later gives me the chance to scrape together what I need.

$44 and change, in Canadian dollars for the Entertainment pack. I actually don't recall the deluxe prices, but NightViper is probably right. I had intended to get the Entertainment Pack until I noticed that price. For some reason I thought it'd be cheaper. Maybe it's the DVD that I don't actually want.

More likely, it's the three kids. They're the anomaly compared to other Entertainment Packs.

Keeping my preorder too. I've got a new baby, so while some careful budgeting means I can afford the toys without guilt, no amount of time management will allow me to run back and forth to TRU.

None at my local TRU and the lady behind the customer service desk checked the closest TRUs and nope, none nearby.

So I just ordered my Arcee at TRU.com. HOPEFULLY Starscream will still be in-stock next week before Black Friday...

I'll be keeping my BBTS preorder for Starscream, Bee, Arcee, and CJ, as well...the closest TRU is about 45 minutes away, and since they'll be added to my pile of loot at BBTS, it'll end up being around the same price as TRU.com considering shipping, tax, etc.

Found them at a TRU in Rockaway, NJ yesterday afternoon. Employee said there were 8 on the floor (I only saw 5), nothing in back. Grabbed to Bees, Arcee, and Screamer. No voyagers or entertainment pack. I almost missed them, on a lone pegs amongst the DOTM and Generations figs!

And I must say, Bumblebee is AWESOME.
