Oprah's couch has withstood many years of OPRAH. It can withstand ANYTHING.

@  TheMightyMol... : (31 May 2016 - 05:32 AM)

Oprah's couch has been reinforced by many years of smug. It can withstand great pressure.

@  Pennpenn : (31 May 2016 - 05:17 AM)

That just asks more questions about Oprah's couch, then.

@  unluckiness : (31 May 2016 - 04:43 AM)

Can it? Oprah's couch seems fine.

Cruise's ego can crush planets. That counts, right?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 07:38 PM)

Xenu is just Tom Cruise in a wig, though.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 07:00 PM)

I'm pretty sure cruze just offers the planets to xenu, he doesn't actaull eat them himself.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 06:57 PM)

And they both eat planets.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 06:56 PM)

well, it was one or the other. I might have been confused because they both have huge heads.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 06:35 PM)

I've never heard that before. Are you sure you're not thinking of Tom Cruise?

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 06:32 PM)

I thought galactus was supposed to appear differently depending on which species is looking at him?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 04:55 PM)

Galactus isn't goofy-looking. His hat is the grandest of all hats!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 May 2016 - 12:58 PM)

And we run into something like the Galactus Fashion Conundrum. Are YOU going to be the one to go up to his face and tell him he's goofy-looking?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 12:32 PM)

Maybe Miles's villains think you're lame!

@  unluckiness : (30 May 2016 - 11:07 AM)

I don't mind Miles but his villains are kinda lame.

@  Bass X0 : (30 May 2016 - 09:29 AM)

I just thankful they didn't have a black Peter Parker.

@  tffan01 : (30 May 2016 - 09:09 AM)

I would have preferred Peter Parker. But If they really wanted to make a non-Peter Parker lead, they could have made Spider-Man 2099, at least it has a gimmick (futurism). While Miles, imo isn't that different from Peter Parker.

@  Locoman : (30 May 2016 - 08:52 AM)

That would be cool. Ultimate Universe kind of went off the rails toward the end, but I always liked Miles.

Transfer Uplinks look cool but in the wrong hands could be OP. Hmmm Just a funny thought what if Mainframe from G1 had a TU? He could make about anything period. Also does anyone know if CatSCAN ever received a spark? His wiki article says he is a spark less build when he was created surly he has one now.

Like mx-01 archon said they don't charge until your item ship (and even then the charge amount may take a few days to weeks to show up on your card because they're in Japan and it depends on how your card holder handles those kinds of charges).

I don't know if that's the case on their Paypal service though (I haven't used it since they changed it around a year or two ago). Before it was at the time of shipping too, but that could cause problems if they sell out while waiting for you to pay (when using their old Paypal method). With the new method I think it deducts automatically similar to a credit card.

So is anyone here expecting better paint apps on the Prime toys as well? Or do you think the budget went into minicons instead?

AmiAmi's even cheaper than HLJ; main difference though is the inability to cancel preorders.

However, AmiAmi has a better shipping policy in that they'll hold all your orders for the month before shipping them out if you want.

Hrrrm, this sweets the deal for going Takara.

I'd have to see them first to make sure nobody had a head-to-toe metallic paint job like the First Edition Bulkhead, though; I don't like how paint job came out. Metallic paint being used for detailing, I like, but not the whole figure (unless it's United Tracks icon-fire.gif).

!!! holy jive. How the hell am I gonna be able to afford importing these? If they all come with Targetmaster versions of their ACTUAL WEAPONS there is no WAY I'm going to pass, especially after the way Hasbro's been handling their distribution lately (even if they do make these available domestically, what are the odds I'd actually be able to BUY them?).

I won't be any where near that. Depends on how much you ordered, but I preordered the entire RID lineup and I'm thinking shipping will be $30 to $60 for the first set, and probably a bit less for the second.

Remember these guys come out in two different months and will ship separately. They won't ship together (one shipment for May releases the other for June).

Bulkhead wasn't painted metallic, he was cast in metallic plastic. It's very nice and really show accurate.

You can cancel an HLJ order.

You can't cancel AmiAmi orders.

But yeah; when I looked this morning AmiAmi seemed to have better prices, all the same. Though HLJs are still good enough for me to tentatively preorder the line with them.

HLJ is offering 20% off the list price, AmiAmi is offering 26-27% off, 1460 vs 1600 for deluxes. However AmiAmi is sold out of Ratchets for some reason?

Oh? Huh - must be a lot of Ratchet fans hoping he gets a better deco on the Takara toy.

Me, I preordered Terrorcon Cliff and Soundwave there - I want Scorpulator and Ravage pretty badly. Heck - since Cliff would be going with my First Edition Prime toys, Ravage is free to stand alone on the Prime shelf, too!

I know a lot of folks over at TFW are hating the U.S version's paint (or lack of) scheme and are hoping the Takara version is better.


I'm getting him for the Micron personally.
