beetleman, if you read this I'm not saying this as a fact, it's just a thought.

*Beetleman logs on and reads this*

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:40 AM)

I think beetleman might have a mental disability of some sorts. I'm not saying he definitely has but if he really does, you guys should be a little kinder to him. That would also explain why he says he is a 19 year old but his parents are overprotective. I'm not saying he definitely has but it's a possibility. Or he's just a 8 year old that says he is an adult.

@  Touch My Thighs : (24 May 2016 - 05:00 AM)

No need to ban him, just remove his ability to post new topics. Problem solved.

@  Msol : (24 May 2016 - 01:01 AM)

So what's the over/under for when beetleman is banned?

@  Telly : (24 May 2016 - 12:26 AM)

is the christmas/holiday special in the latest mtmte trade? or atleast mtmte's segment of that comic

How was the US able to get them for $20 if Takara has to sell them for $70? It just seems so disproportionate.

If Takara is trying to save money/increase profitability charging 3x retail for the PCCs is pretty much the stupidest thing imaginable.

They would've had more success just handing out the money on the street they spent.

The PCC's are the same toys everyone lambasted for years, but slap a new paint job on them and they're suddenly gold? Wow, too bad Hasbro didn't just do that in the first place!

Takara isn't selling them for that, importers are. Importing always carries a premium.

I'm not sure where you go that from, given that the sources for the price of these products is a solicitation from Takara and a retail listing on Amazon.co.jp.

The retail price is 6090 yen = $75.
Amazon's discounted price is 5098 yen = $63.

So roughly $70.

I'm not sure what thread you're reading, but this one is hardly universal praise for the PCCs. And I'd assume people are talking more about the PCCs because we have amazon pages with nice high resolution photos of them, and only a teeny tiny little picture of a grey prototype Unicron.

I don't even think that's a prototype.

Unicron combining with Optimus Prime is awesome and random, and might make him worth picking up if he's Japan-only.

Speaking of Prototypes; are we not gonna talk about the Jet Vehicon prototype shown? Cause that looks pretty cool to me. Though, the Jet mode, looks sorta like a car with wings.

I'm not really interested in Unicron's pointless waste of engineering to combine with another toy.

Let's hope it can stand on its own.

Walky, you know that's not how this works.

We have a microscopic sliver of information and a lousy image, and that's all we need to determine that something is the worst thing ever.
