@Rycochet He is indeed voiced by Wierd Al. He is also a awesome brother. :D

@  Rycochet : (13 February 2016 - 07:15 AM)

Polkatron dares to be stupid and is voiced by A. Yankovic.

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 February 2016 - 07:07 AM)

He got all the musical talent in the family.

@  BillBarclay : (13 February 2016 - 05:59 AM)

Polkatron? is he Plokatron's spotty brother?

@  BillBarclay : (13 February 2016 - 05:58 AM)

Polkatron? is he Ploj

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 11:21 PM)

@Cabooceratops So was what I said. :D

@  Cabooceratops : (12 February 2016 - 09:10 PM)

It's called a joke, Polkatron, you may have heard of the concept?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 08:06 PM)

@Nutjob R/T @TheMightyMollusk Yesh are you Baybots thinking so litteral?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 02:41 PM)

Optimus makes a lousy helmet.

@  Nutjob R/T : (12 February 2016 - 02:11 PM)

Wait when did Optimus Prime fly off the top of your head?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 01:55 PM)

@Paladin @TheMightyMollusk @NotVeryKnightly Dumb dumb dumb on Hasbros part. Optimus flew withing the first three episodes of the G1 cartoon. No not the glide flight thing that only Deceps uses after that I mean the jetpack part. Plus I can site four other times he flew off the top of my head.

@  Boomhauer : (12 February 2016 - 12:45 PM)

Optimus already got to fly in RID's Season finale, though one could argue he was just falling with style instead of flying properly.

@  Rycochet : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

The Unicron Trilogy had awful shows but some really neat toys even if it did get off to a shaky start with some of the unnecessarily flawed Armada stuff.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

Didn't he fly in Beast Hunters?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 11:58 AM)

What about Animated?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:55 AM)

Someone who never saw the Unicron Trilogy. God do I envy them....

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 11:49 AM)

...Hasbro's billing that new "Power Surge Optimus Prime" as "the first time Optimus takes flight." who thought THAT sounded right....

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:34 AM)

More likely, they'll all follow the same visual style to retain brand coherency. The most you could hope for is better writing, but don't hold your breath.

@  Dracula : (12 February 2016 - 10:25 AM)

Cool. Bay can't possibly direct all of those. Maybe we'll get someone else's vision of what a TF movie could look like.

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 10:14 AM)

ugh. we're apparently getting 1 TF film A YEAR starting 2017. and Bumblebee gets a spinoff film...

@  Plokatron : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 PM)

Guess no one has the comic then. Blast I need that close up of Ironhide's helmet!

@  Arazyr : (11 February 2016 - 01:41 PM)

@  D Buster Prime : (11 February 2016 - 01:21 PM)

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 10:54 AM)

nah! it's Venus that's going to Botcon!

@  Paladin : (11 February 2016 - 10:45 AM)

could've also meant Cree Summer...

@  Dracula : (11 February 2016 - 08:39 AM)

Good going, Blackarachnia. I heard it's been hard for her to get roles after Hasbro brought in Airachnid.

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 06:34 AM)

you mean Venus Terzo! she's supposed to be going to Botcon

@  Whirl Maximus : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 AM)

Blackarachnia was on Supernatural last night.

@  Plokatron : (10 February 2016 - 11:08 PM)

Ponderous slagging ponderous. Hey anyone got some good Hi-res captures of Ironhide in Infestation? I really need close ups of his head for reference on a project.

@  Plokatron : (09 February 2016 - 10:46 PM)

Ok now this is funny. I ordered a used copy of HoS GN and the one I got was a library copy once. It's marked Union County on it. Thats my home county. :D It never was in my library though. Mine is named after the man who built it not the town or county but still kinda funny.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 February 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Is it sad I read "KF7 Soviet" as "KFC7 Soviet"?

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:38 PM)

Neat.

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 03:35 PM)

A what? Oh, you must mean a KF7 Soviet. Common mistake.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:22 PM)

Can I just get an AK-47 instead?

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 02:35 PM)

this is form 47-a. you want form 47-A. start again

@  MEDdMI : (09 February 2016 - 02:07 PM)

Now you didn't fill the form in black or blue ink. Do it again.

@  Rycochet : (09 February 2016 - 02:04 PM)

You made a typo on the first page of the forms, you're going to have to go back and fill the whole form out again, from first to final.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 February 2016 - 01:31 PM)

"bats"

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 01:09 PM)

Nice and soft, you say? This isn't even my final form!!!!

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 12:47 PM)

its nice and soft like YOU dracula *bats eyelashes* and thatll probly be the last thing i post in this thing now lol

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 08:52 AM)

It's course and rough...wait that doesn't work

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 February 2016 - 08:43 AM)

It gets everywhere?

@  Paladin : (09 February 2016 - 07:57 AM)

i hate snow.

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 04:58 PM)

btw one of the Transformers Victory intro's(not the original music used) on YouTube uses one of the pieces of music used on the US version of Transformers Armada

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:55 PM)

You should read it again, it gets better with age!

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 03:46 PM)

I am fully aware of that story and mentioning it carries the penalty of fifty towel snaps.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:31 PM)

Shh, it's a trap!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 February 2016 - 02:48 PM)

See, you said "awesome" and "The Beast" in the same sentence, and I think you broke my mind with the contradiction.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:42 PM)

No-one tell Whirl about the awesome dinobot combiner, The Beast.

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:37 PM)

@Dracula Uh oh were in trouble.

So, a while back I ordered a Spray and Rager from iGear and when the package arrived, there were two Sprays and no Rager. So, being the penny pincher I am and not particularly wanting a second Spray, I contacted iGear and told them what happened. They asked for a picture as proof (which I provided) and I was told that they were arranging the resend and that I should hold onto the second Spray pending instructions on what to do with it.

Well... the Rager has arrived and he's quite a nice little figure, but... no instructions on what to do with the extra Spray are forthcoming. Nothing in the package, nothing in the box the figure came in and no E-Mails that I can find.

I'm tempted to contact them, but I'm also tempted to just let it be, if for no other reason than to save the bother of shipping it. Still... my conscience nags me.

Has anyone else had to deal with anything like this, particularly with iGear?

Well look at it this way, assume they meant to send instructions & didn't. If you don't contact them, it could cause issues with you getting anything directly from them.

If you can live with that, then it's your choice not to bother. Up to you.

I'd just go ahead and ask them what they want done with that second Spray.

On one hand, it is, indeed, the right thing to do.

On the other hand, depending upon what factors are at play, they might just let you keep him.



A few years ago I had to mail a defective disk back to Bandai so that I could get a replacement. Due to a mistake on their part, however, Bandai accidentally sent me two replacement bundles (disk + grab bag of freebies). When I e-mailed them about it, they said to just go ahead and keep everything.

Yeah, I pretty much made up my mind to contact them, I was just hoping someone might have had a similar thing happen and have more specific advice.

Aw. I would've taken that Spray off your hands.

With BBTS, when I've had problems with some of my orders, they invariably send me a replacement part in a full size box, and never ask for the problem part back...which I sometimes feel bad about. It'd usually be easier for them to send these parts in a padded envelope, I think, or add it to my Pile-of-Loot. And if they'd just include a return label or envelope or something, I'd like to send them these problem parts back (Like, if I get something with two left fists, I figure the spare fist does them more good than me).

But they don't, and I assume it's for a decent reason.

I've been in the same situation, and figure it would be a logistics nightmare for them to try to keep up with random figure parts all over the place, not to mention the money and time wasted getting them shipped back. Hopefully BBTS can just send back a big pile of the salvaged third party stuff to the makers as damaged/bad quality stuff.

In any case, if Explorer ever breaks his right arm, I have a replacement at hand.

Update:

It's been several weeks (nearly a month, since I sat on it for a week or so) since I contacted them and so far there's been no reply about what to do with this figure. It's rather frustrating. I would rather any reply at all rather than silence.

I feel like I should maybe give it one more try, just in case, but it's been about a month and a half, nearly two since I received the original figures... I don't know what the statute of limitations is on this kind of thing, but I'm tempted to say that, if they really wanted it back, they'd have contacted me by now.

Curse my strong ethical drive... this would be so much easier if I just didn't care XD

Well at this point, I'd say you've no worries, except mayb how to get the extra Spay to Corvus. And seeing if he'll pony up for s/h.

Still, if you want to send another email, put in the message if, I do not receive a response by x, then I will consider the matter settled, or something to this effect. Making it obvious you tried, while not hanging on the phone for a call that might never come.

Plus, I'm sure Corvus wants his Spray.
