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)

@  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.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:36 PM)

If you think that's cool, wait until you see what other stuff we're hiding from you.

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 02:33 PM)

Transformers Victory's intro is awesome. And not one of you told me.... WHY?!!!

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

It doesn't count those using it on other pages.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

If it's the one by IPB Shoutbox, it means the number of people who are viewing the Shoutbox page.

@  tffan01 : (08 February 2016 - 10:34 AM)

Where's the red numbers?

@  Lush City : (08 February 2016 - 09:23 AM)

Ok total newb to the shoutbox, but what do the red numbers in the corner mean?

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Thought it would lead to hi jinks and a lark like that movie Idiocracy instead it turned into something disturbing and traumatic like that movie Small Soldiers.

@  Dracula : (08 February 2016 - 08:55 AM)

You used MUNITION CHIPS in TOYS??

@  tffan01 : (08 February 2016 - 08:02 AM)

SEX

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 07:48 AM)

I got bruticus limbs at FP last monday and Onslaught on Friday. Huge mistake, I inserted an X1000 microprocessor in each one and a extra for Bruticus, and they mopped the floor with the rest of my CW collection.

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 06:18 AM)

i already got those(Scattershot & Onslaught) from Smyths Toys here in the UK, Asda's supposed to have the RID Warrior Class figures in(Megatronus, Blue Optimus Prime ect)

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:07 AM)

Yeah glad I ain't a bug or a bowwow. Hahaha

Well, the idea of dying during sex sounds appealing until you realize it involves crushed pelvises...

@  Paladin : (07 February 2016 - 08:21 AM)

TripleDent Gum, will make you smile...

@  Pennpenn : (06 February 2016 - 10:34 PM)

I do love how they did the "Death! ...by snu-snu!" scene, with Fry and Brannigan's expressions shifting between horrified and delighted.

@  Lisbon Virgo : (06 February 2016 - 08:46 PM)

Yes, please?

@  MEDdMI : (06 February 2016 - 07:48 PM)

Death by snu-snu

@  siccoyote : (06 February 2016 - 07:36 PM)

Everyone's gotta die from something

@  Plokatron : (06 February 2016 - 06:51 PM)

My dad survived it twice and we both have a strong hate towards it for taking someone from us. IMy sympathies to your family.

@  Plokatron : (06 February 2016 - 05:14 PM)

@Smokey Sorry to here that.

@  Smokey : (06 February 2016 - 02:42 PM)

I'd laugh more at cancer jokes if cancer hadn't killed my aunt six years ago.

@  Plokatron : (05 February 2016 - 11:46 PM)

@Dracula Hey the crab is cool too but this DNA monster is giving them both a bad name.

@  Plokatron : (05 February 2016 - 11:07 PM)

Got my copy of the Allspark Almanac. Time to go waste time some more! Hope my copy of HoS get here next week. Trainsformers! More steam to meet your eye!!! No no don't look directly into the cylinders!!!! You fool!!!

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

I have had little experience buying botcon exclusives before now, I vaguely know that they'll cost several times more than retail, but aside from that, I don't know what to expect?

How much should I be saving for a secondhand SG Treadshot, and what would be the best channel to get one if I'm not going to the convention?

I got Skybite off Ebay for 60-70 dollars from the Redux set. I'd say have a hundred ready to go and hope for less.

It's also hard to tell if Treadshot is going to be hotter than the other inhabitants of the box set. I know that when I was shopping around on eBay right after 2010 Botcon Breakdown was a good $20-30 more than some of the other figures in that set.

I would echo that guessing between 70-100 is relatively reasonable.
You've got to have a goat.

I would think by being a non-G1 homage he's likely not to be as popular among "the masses".

The best place to look would likely be the BST board here. There are a lot of Allsparkers splitting up and selling off their box sets.

Treadshot BIN $74.99

$70-$100 range is dead on. Hope you get one Caboose.

I'd expect the price to drop, unless there is a big demand for this set.

Did any of the other exclusives sell out besides SG Prime/Kick-Out?

I'm pretty surprised by the prices BBTS and TFSource are listing these at. They're by far cheaper than any previous after Botcon offerings they've listed. Ebay prices even seem tame, and history shows that prices are usually insane the weekend of Botcon. Were production numbers just really high on souvenir pieces this year, or is the interest in this year's figures kind of low?

Thanks, Walky for the confirmation.

It could be a combination of both. Not many like the Shattered Glass theme.

It's such a nice looking set, though.

It happens every year - I see individual figures as great or lame, but when I see the whole set together, it looks fantastic.

I'm very excited to get everything when I pick it up at the end of May. I even got a headband and trading card set! Woo!
