I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

@  Telly : (16 October 2019 - 10:48 PM)

my walmart is acting true to form. as soon as mirage arrives from amazon, my walmart gets his entire wave in after months of having wave 1 clogging the pegs....

@  Nevermore : (16 October 2019 - 05:18 PM)

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

I got stabbed in the eyelid by a mudwasp, pulled down a tree, and then got ice cream. You know, all told: not a bad day.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 01:51 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

Ok I decided to get around to taking real pics of the stuff. Its kinda a "where's waldo" type arrangement, but for me it is easier than any of the systematic methods I attempted before. The whole white-shelf concept is centered around G1 and related items. It has a few KOs and non-TF things. And I also have some beaters up there that I eventually will get to fixing up. Despite what looks to be duplicates, they are not... stamping variations have a home here! For each pic I will point out some things that may not be apparent just by the photo... Also photos from phone camera and I'm not good at using it. :(

20150308_175028_zpspos3h1r3.jpg
- Lunchbox has the thermos in it
- Jetfire is the Macross tamograph version
- Ratchet with the rubsign is the mail-away version

20150308_175136_zps3k57u3gj.jpg
- To the left of the walkie talkies is sealed Skywarp Numeral Candle and Optimus Prime napkins.

20150308_175217_zpsnzj0gfba.jpg
- Box to the left of Jetfire is Inferno.
- Soundwave has FIRRIB in his chest because it is broken and can't stay in either robot or micro-cassette mode without reinforcement.

20150308_175252_zps1cg5dzit.jpg
- There is a Perceptor in that box! I swear!
- Twin Twist in box is the correct one. Topspin error tech is in the mail.

20150308_175324_zpsp81qo3dj.jpg
- two small boxes behind are Kickback and Bombshell.
- next two boxes are Canadian Astrotrain/Astrotrain and Blitzwing/Le Blitz.
- Rippersnapper has no head, so I can't make Abominus.

20150308_175423_zps1regdrko.jpg
- famous sealed Skywarp soap dish with Tracks soap.
- AFA graded Antex Camaro is the one in the clear case.
- Waddington's Jazz card game behind Hardhead.
- between Doublecross and Scorpy you can see the Thundercracker party toy peaking out.

20150308_175456_zpsfgqb5nyn.jpg
- That's Flywheels in the box behind Hunn-gurr.
- Brainstorm is in his box too but no Arcana.
- Some of the pretenders have their inner robot, some don't. :(

20150308_175523_zpsjs1xgeeq.jpg
- colorful Seekers are actually customs. So is the Road Hauler. They were made by Sto_vo_kor.
- Gobot Smallfoot is here, also a Diaclone!
- In front of Prowl II is an over-sized G1 Laserbeak.
- The Classic carded toy is Wideload with Portugese import sticker on the back.
- Icepick has the inner robot.
- The Japanese G2 Starscream has the wrong head!

20150308_175709_zpsxpqqbaax.jpg
- The purple Seeker is another custom from Sto_vo_kor.
- Shouki there, not sure if legit or KO.

20150308_175744_zps1kik8i0m.jpg
- Many KOs here. There is the over-sized Soundwave that the Laserbeak belongs to. He has KO Ravage in him because it looks better that way.
- I find many recent KOs cannot actually be transformed into Robot mode for whatever reason.
- Hidden boxed toys are 22 Starscream re-issue and TRU US Hot Rod Reissue.
- Mystery 2-in-1 Robot Fighter is boxed Jumpstarter KO.

20150308_175855_zpsjmbzbgfl.jpg
- Seemed to miss one here. That Defensor KO is fine... there is a smaller one where there are no robot or vehicle modes, only a combined mode.
- Behind the visible Defensor KO is a Dorvack KO set with Ovelon Gazette and Bonaparte Tulcas.
- That's no Diaclone in the box there, it is Kingdam F15/Diaclone Starscream KO!

I'm still working on my other shelves. This one has Autobots with newer toys on the top, and has media like VHS, DVD, VCD and books on it.

Nice collection man. Love all the little extra items and boxed stuff you have. Quick question whats the big Optimus Prime in the second picture, it looks like there's wires coming out of him?

It is the Electronic Intercom Telephone System. They are two Optimus Primes back-to-back, with a wire that connects them. It is basically a wired walkie-talkie type thing, where you can talk to a friend in another room or place by pressing a button. I had this when I was a kid, but the one I have now I got at a flea market last summer.

They can move their arms, as you can see in this pic I found online:

- Found a G2 Hero Optimus Prime at an antique store.
- also now you can see the smaller Defensor/Guard City KO.

20150321_161107_zpsnq1mjdz2.jpg
- I didn't post about it before, but this shelf is for MTMTE Part 2 Autobots.
- This is a different pic than previously... I found there is Roller that comes with the DOTM Ark playset so I put him in here too.

Presenting, The Transformers cassette for Commodore 64 released in UK:
20150329_170527_zpsqmf8zodh.jpg

Another pairing completed, the Walkie Talkie Combat Communicators:
20150329_170809_zpsuedpb838.jpg

Despite both looking to be the same box... or the one with the "Bluestreak" walkie talkies just having a "With Signal Lights" sticker thrown on, this is not the case. You can tell from the pic that the "With Signal Lights" version has a different foam insert, in fact that one has a deeper box than the other one.

Digging around in ye old picture folders I came across some GEMS! Pics of my TF collection from 1998?

These were taken on a Sony Mavica camera. If you remember those, it was the kind where you could put a floppy disk in it to save the pictures to.

I didn't like how the toys were blocking the boxes, so I redid everything. Top shelf for newer versions versions. Autobots on the left and Decepticons on the right. They are divided by The Ark with RID15 Steeljaw on top.
