@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 02:20 AM)

You just did.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 02:18 AM)

Can I just say that right now... I hate the USA?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

There are languages where the days are named for numbers and Sunday is "one". Like Arabic.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 01:31 AM)

Isn't it sort of a religious thing for Sunday to be the start of the week but most people just go with the first day they go to work for the week?

@  unitremover : (20 January 2018 - 01:02 AM)

I feel like I've known plenty of Americans who'd say Monday is the first day of the week.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

Personally Monday will always be the first day of the week for me. The notion that Sunday is somehow the first day of the week seems completely nonsensical to me.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

I'm fairly sure it is in Australia, but that tends to get blurred because of US influence.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:19 AM)

(It's Sunday here in the U.S.)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:18 AM)

Anyone here live in a country where Monday is considered the first day of the week?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 08:40 PM)

Maybe?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 05:56 PM)

@  Nevermore : (19 January 2018 - 11:40 AM)

Netherlands? We got one hell of a storm here in Germany the other day too.

Who sings the first part of the GIJoe The Movie theme song? (Cobra) Sounds so familiar.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 04:54 PM)

What ya getting?

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Yay! My package from BBTS is in canada! I might even get it this week!

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 02:04 PM)

I need a laptop more than a new desktop

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 01:18 PM)

Buying a pre-built computer you should be okay.. It's just the individual parts that jumped huge in price.

@  Paladin : (17 January 2018 - 01:14 PM)

well all the idiots who invested in "bitcoin" will be selling theirs en masse to make ends meet so you might be able to find something cheap if you watch auctions.

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 12:59 PM)

Is now a good time to buy a computer? Or should I wait?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 12:01 PM)

I pointed out that I'm on disabilty.. I don't have to pretend to be an adult anymore. ;D

@  MEDdMI : (17 January 2018 - 11:25 AM)

Also Bayonetta 3.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 January 2018 - 10:55 AM)

Nintendo also announced Dark Souls for the Switch, so those people should shut up.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:51 AM)

Apparently people are freaking out that Nintendo announced something for kids and kids at heart. And people are absolutely freaking out about it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 January 2018 - 10:23 AM)

Pretty much the only way they care is if someone goes out of his or her way to tell them, and that means going through all their customer service channels to find which person in the legal person to write to for literally no reason other than taking away something people wanted out of some weird warped sense of consumerism honor.  Over a spare face on a fully licensed figure.


Even if they find out I'd be surprised if whichever department is involved with this kind of thing would even bother.

Oh, yeah, I'd forgotten about him, too. Weird. 

 

That said, we might want to wait and see if the 7" lineup Cy-Kill here is launching continues, since that would likely make for an even more GoBotic Turbo than the one we saw.

On one hand I have no interest in Turbo's Go-bots model, on the other hand a DX Turbo might have his clear chest window fulla colorful chrome console greeblies, which Turbo / Supercar Robo absolutely needs.

And there's nothing in particular from the HB design on this Bike Robo other than the alternate faces, it's just a lot more literally based on the original toy's detailing rather than the RoC animation model. So that might work out.

Shuttle Robo is both a really good robot and a really good space shuttle, but also I had no idea it was possible for such a relatively small toy to be so finicky.

Yeah. He's similar I think to Leader-1 in that way. Where most of the other MRs benefit from relatively simple designs that are easier to update, they both require more engineering to get back and forth.

The annoyingly bit to me is that I don't think it NEEDED to be so complicated. "Spay-C" is not any more complicated or in need of reinvention that the next Robo, yet she seems to have been far more reinvented than the others design wise.

-ZacWilliam, I don't *hate* this one at all but I morn the opportunity for one closer to the old look.

Since I'm not especially familiar with the Machine Robo animation I obviously can't speak for much. But this one Google image I found suggests the original was a bit more complex than the far simpler Gobots animation model.

 

Landcommander5team-roc25.jpg

 

The bot details of the new toy are definitely turned up a bit, but I think much of the complexity does come from trying to match this more complex design, remain articulated, and deal with the inevitable folding panels.

Yeah, the 5" lineup is strictly based on "animation with a bit of toy" like Hasui Masterpiece cars. You're only going to see GoBots in the 7" lineup, assuming it continues, and that's mostly going to be on the level of "toy without the anime". There's no HB on any of this save for a nod with 7" Bike Robo's extra faceplates.

Having no H-B in them is a saving grace.  That the H-B Cy-Kill face is optional is perfect.
