I've ordered from them several times with no problems.

@  Telly : (23 July 2017 - 11:19 PM)

i havent. but ive only ordered from them a few times

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 July 2017 - 11:16 PM)

Has anyone here ever had trouble with orders from Tfsource before?

@  BlackMax : (23 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

Good track, but I prefer Paranoid. Is there any tune better for this board? "tell a joke and I will sigh, and you will laugh, and I will cry".

He certainly doesn't have the time to be employed full-time what with all the war-stoking, dinosaur fossil burying, pornographing and etc

Look, I'm TRYING, okay?

@  Bass X0 : (23 July 2017 - 06:40 AM)

The devil is a part-timer!

@  Nevermore : (23 July 2017 - 06:32 AM)

I always took it to be a catch-all term for "person or thing of the same name" regardless of which came first.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:06 PM)

So technically it could be either way and not be wrong, but it is more apt to be Kalidor's example.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:05 PM)

one that has the same name as another; especially : one who is named after another or for whom another is named

@  Kalidor : (22 July 2017 - 09:45 PM)

I think the official meaning is that a namesake is the person or thing that is named after something else. So the USS Kalidor would be Kalidor's namesake

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 08:30 PM)

I thought it was either?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 July 2017 - 08:27 PM)

It is very irritating that no one seems to agree on whether the word "namesake" refers to the thing that came first or the thing that came second.

@  2017 : (22 July 2017 - 07:19 PM)

I'd like it, but I really don't have the cash or the justification.

@  Paladin : (22 July 2017 - 02:48 PM)

Anyone still need a Chaos on Velocitron set? Found one at TRU today...

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 July 2017 - 01:27 PM)

He REALLY likes blowing stuff up.

@  Dekafox : (22 July 2017 - 12:42 PM)

G1 Scattershot's 3rd mode gimmick?

@  MEDdMI : (22 July 2017 - 12:04 PM)

Nothing can be more awkward than the crotch rubsigns.

@  Bass X0 : (22 July 2017 - 11:28 AM)

well, they had to go somewhere.

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 02:54 AM)

TR Quake's shoulder symbols are very awkward looking

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2017 - 07:25 PM)

Are there even enough toys of him to collect?

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 July 2017 - 04:21 PM)

A nerd.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Speaking of, what do you call someone who collects toys of the Marvel character The Collector?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:18 PM)

What about people who collect the "Die Hard" movies?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 July 2017 - 03:54 PM)

A lot of the die hard collectors don't need to be louder...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2017 - 03:22 PM)

@Nevermore Benbot means "amped" as in excited. I believe the term is shorthand for (a sound) amplifier.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Or is "shorthand" a synonym for "amputated"?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Is "amped" shorthand for "amputated"?

@  Benbot : (21 July 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I am amped! But I also have standards.

@  Fear or Courage : (21 July 2017 - 08:38 AM)

I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

Yesterday's sightings:

Toys"R"Us in Düsseldorf-Derendorf has moved its Transformers area near the entrance, giving it a more prominent spot with increased shelf space. They have the entire wave 2 of the TLK Deluxes with Steelbane, Sqweeks, Drift and Slug. Multiples of each, though only two Steelbanes remain after I bought one for another fan.
TRUDuesseldorf2017-06-02_1.jpg TRUDuesseldorf2017-06-02_2.jpg

Karstadt in Düsseldorf (Am Wehrhahn) has nothing noteworthy new. The Transformers area, despite having been moved to the end of the aisle, is still a sad sight to be seen.

Galeria Kaufhof directly across the street from Karstadt has TLK Deluxe Sqweeks and Slug.
Galeria_Kaufhof_Duesseldorf_Wehrhahn2017

The other remaining Galeria Kaufhof department store in Düsseldorf ("Kaufhof an der Kö") has a small Transformers display on a table aside from the regular shelf inside the aisle. The only new figure they have, though, is Deluxe Slug.
Galeria_Kaufhof_Duesseldorf_Koe2017-06-0

Nothing noteworthy new at Intertoys in Düsseldorf-Friedrichsstadt or Intertoys in Neuss.

Today's sightings:

Intertoys in Wesel has three Titans Return Titan Master Repugnus...es... er... Repugni?
Intertoys_Wesel2017-06-03.jpg

Intertoys inside the Shopping Arkaden mall in Bocholt has one Titans Return Titan Master Shuffler and one Legends Bumblebee.

Toys"R"Us in Duisburg-Meiderich has the The Last Knight 1-Step Turbo Changers Grimlock and Berserker. I didn't see Megatron, but I did realize afterwards that they might also have a second Transformers section near the entrance like other German TRU stores currently do...
TRUDuisburg2017-06-26.jpg

Toys"R"Us in downtown Essen does definitely have a new Transformers section near the entrance, where they have Titans Return Legends Bumblebee and Kickback. Meanwhile, in the old section in the rear part of the store they have Titans Return Voyager Optimus Prime. No Megatron, though.

Epic FAIL at Spiele Max inside the Forum shopping mall in downtown Mülheim an der Ruhr: All The Last Knight Legions are erroneously priced as 1-Step Turbo Changers, which means the store is charging even more for them than it's supposed to...

1-Step Turbo Changers Megatron, Grimlock and Berserker at the Toys"R"Us stores in Wuppertal-Elberfeld and in Hagen. The one in Hagen also had the entire wave 3 of the Titans Return Legends with Bumblebee, Gnaw and Kickback.

Toys"R"Us in downtown Essen had the RID Legions Blurr, Drift and Bisk (previously available at Intertoys), as well as several new releases for Germany: Three-Step Changers Power Surge Bumblebee, Cybertron Strike Steeljaw and Soundwave, plus The Last Knight Legions Drift and Megatron. Crosshairs was either already gone or still inside the stockroom.

Anyone still looking for the RID Mini-Con Deployers Drift/Jetstorm and/or Fracture/Airazor? They're available at Toys"R"Us again, this time as imports. Seen on Monday at TRU in Duisburg-Meiderich, and today at the TRU stores in Düsseldorf-Derendorf and in Neuss. Possibly also at the store in Krefeld, but I was no longer paying any attention to them.
TRUDuisburg2017-07-17.jpg

Toys"R"Us in Düsseldorf also has The Last Knight Legion Megatron, Drift and Crosshairs, Voyager Megatron and Hound, plus, new for Germany, the RID One-Step Changers Sideswipe (version 3) and Blurr.
