Then again, a lot of versions of the movie had pretty bad sound quality, even the most recent blu-rays mess it up in places, so it's not as much our fault if we misheard stuff.

@  Arazyr : (25 September 2016 - 07:28 PM)

When I first heard it, half of it may as well have been in a foreign language, for all I could make out. (Of course, I can say that about most music...)

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:14 PM)

I can't remember entirely, and I can't "hear" anything but the actual lyrics now, but I remember "I am born to hurt you, I'll break the boundless sky" as how my brain parsed the first words.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 07:01 PM)

So what did you hear?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 06:39 PM)

I almost completely misinterpreted the lyrics for that song for ages, and when I did find out what they were I thought my idea of the lyrics was better.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 06:29 PM)

So apparently the 2016 remake of "Instruments of Destruction" is out. I'm still waiting for an Amazon download to become available, but the clips I heard thus far sound cool. They're using the uncensored lyrics!

Neon Tiger's stage music from Mega Man X3 was also pretty much straight from Guns 'N Roses' "My Michelle". X5 also renamed all the Mavericks as references to GNR.

So, I was at a toy store at one of the local malls earlier today, hoping that maybe they had some RTS Laser Optimus Primes left, and maybe-- just maybe-- they would be on sale.

Well, they had them, and they were... sort of.

Before Christmas, I remember them being $19.99 each-- a bit jacked up, considering Perceptor and others from the same waves and/or size class were cheaper, like around $12-$13 bucks.

And today, they were... $19.99. But on sale from $29.99, which I don't remember being the case before. I could be wrong, but I really don't remember any red "sale" stickers or other prices before Christmas, just "$19.99."

The whole thing disgusted me so much that I just left without.

I just can't believe they are charging that much for them! Sure, years ago when the exchange rate was 35-45% I understand, but still? I passed it up at $9.99 a few months ago.

Check your GPS device. Make sure your local mall or the toy store isn't phase shifted with an Australian one.

19.99$? Was it a Zellers?

The 29.99$ was probably a mistake in the system, you should go back & make a fuss about it at costumer service they might lower it to the actual price & give you an additional discount on top of that.

Usually the small print will imply that the item has been sold at that price for x number of days in other stores.

Though... sold is probably a tad optimistic. Shelf-warmed is probably closer to the truth.


Given that I live in the UK and I've never actually seen a laser Optimus on the pegs, I have to say my sympathy is strained.

Wilkinsons had him. I picked one up from there along with Perceptor and Wreck-Gar. The one or two they had left did not stay around long in my local store.

Let me guess, you were at the TOYS TOYS TOYS in Vaughan Mills Mall weren't you? I saw that RTS Op there too and also refused to pay that price for it.

They problem with TTT is that they often price by character rather than by size assortment. Cuz on the same shelf right next to Prime were the other RTS deluxes all at $16.99, "on sale".

But it's all good, cuz that's where I picked up my Animated Jetfire/Jetstorm 2 pack after Xmas. That's the beauty of TOYS TOYS TOYS, they grossly overprice their stuff when it's new so you can pass it up and get it "on sale" at what would be regular retail price 3-4 years later if you missed it!
