I dunno if to call them the worst salesperson ever or the best.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2021 - 01:33 PM)

They must not have really wanted to sell you anything.

@  Sabrblade : (16 April 2021 - 09:19 AM)

This just happened to be the first time one ever gave up and walked away immediately after ringing the bell. Like, no patience at all or something.

@  Sabrblade : (16 April 2021 - 09:17 AM)

Covid didn't stop salespeople from coming to my neighborhood. They are still a consistent annoyance.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 April 2021 - 08:16 AM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 April 2021 - 04:04 PM)

door to door salesmen (or those offering religion) certainly are one of the things lost to COVID that I've missed the least

@  Sabrblade : (15 April 2021 - 10:07 AM)

They rang the bell and were walking away before I even got to the door mere seconds later.

@  Sabrblade : (15 April 2021 - 10:06 AM)

I just got ding-dong-ditched by a salesperson.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 April 2021 - 06:27 AM)

No.. It's Tiberious Maximus... And there is a comic with such already. :D

@  Donocropolis : (12 April 2021 - 11:15 AM)

Yes. Color it like the Energon version of Unicron. Also, give us Fortress Tiberious.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 April 2021 - 09:49 AM)

Great. Now I want a borg cube unicron...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (12 April 2021 - 09:00 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 April 2021 - 05:39 AM)

@  Kalidor : (11 April 2021 - 09:48 PM)

The only Titan figure I ever saw at retail was Trypticon at Ollie's

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 April 2021 - 09:12 PM)

Robosen Prime has market crossover with not just the toy collectors, but robotics enthusiasts quite willing to pay that price for a product like this.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 April 2021 - 08:33 PM)

One of my two local TRUs will stock exactly ONE titan at a time. It usually ends up "clearanced" for about 20 bucks off cause no one is willing to pay for at full price OR discounted.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 April 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Most stores don't seem to want to stock Commanders or Titans, never mind Unicron.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 April 2021 - 07:55 PM)

I wonder if Unicron going to crowdfuning wasn't just a price issue but also stores not wanting to stock and transport something so huge.

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 April 2021 - 07:47 PM)

It is, although this thing could also be considered a STEM educational tool

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 April 2021 - 07:33 PM)

Doesn't change the fact that, for most people, $700 is a pretty hefty investment for a toy.

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 April 2021 - 07:17 PM)

I dunno, $700 doesn't seem that bad for what it does. Some of those Masterpiece figures seem to go for at least half that price, and they don't have any actual robots or even electronics.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 April 2021 - 05:35 PM)

Not to mention wallet-shattering.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (11 April 2021 - 04:30 PM)

It's a jargon-shattering figure.

@  Kalidor : (10 April 2021 - 08:50 PM)

The licensed Optimus Prime that transforms itself is the appropriate usage of the term "Third Party"

@  Donocropolis : (10 April 2021 - 08:24 AM)

That Optimus isn't built by Hasbro, only licensed. The company that makes it has been making similar robots for years, so no crowdfundng required.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 April 2021 - 08:05 AM)

Apparently they're selling one for 74 and a half thousand dollars.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 April 2021 - 08:01 AM)

We could write boston dynamics and ask?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 April 2021 - 07:59 AM)

Granted, I'm not sure how much robots with elaborate movement tend to go for.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 April 2021 - 07:56 AM)

I think with actual robotics it was easier to justify selling it at a high cost, compared to an unusually large action figure.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 April 2021 - 05:06 AM)

It is a very impressive display of robotics though.

@  tigerhawk : (10 April 2021 - 04:52 AM)

What were they thinking with that self transforming Optimus? should have been another crowd funder for that price.

@  tigerhawk : (08 April 2021 - 03:33 PM)

I wish they'd rerelease Earthrise Ramjet and Dirge.

Georgia passes new voter suppression bill to limit black voters. Eliminating mail-in ballots, reducing early voting and making registration harder. They also passed the bill near the end of the week before anyone had a chance to see it. How they are specifically targeting back voters is by how they are only preventing early voting on Sundays, Sundays are known for when black churches do "souls to polls" drive.

Hey, remember for like twenty minutes people thought Turtlehead had "Turned" on Donald and would actually reject him?

 



Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who just weeks ago excoriated former President Trump on the Senate floor, blaming him for the riot at the Capitol, on Thursday said he would back Trump if he wins the party's 2024 presidential nomination.

 

Asked if he would support Trump if he wins the party's nomination in 2024, McConnell added: "The nominee of the party? Absolutely."

The statement represents a remarkable about-face for McConnell, who after the impeachment trial had signaled he wanted his party to turn sharply from Trump. https://thehill.com/...024-gop-nominee

The Cult does not forgive and the Cult does not forget.


If that were true, this move would do him no favors, since he already drew Trump's ire for trying to abandon him in the first place.

When Trump is desperate enough for allies, he'll welcome Mitch back into the fold and pretend he's never had a harsh word to say about the guy, and his cult will believe it 100% because reality is whatever their immortal god-king says it is.

You honestly think Trumpy gives a damn about playing nice with Turtle?  He doesn't.  He just wants his will to be served and damn anyone else.  That's his way of doing politics.

It's worth noting the Neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement swapped from the swastika to the Odal Rune to try and rebrand and enter the mainstream of politics in 2016 after Trump's election. They were some of the 'good people on both sides' involved in Charlottesville.

FB friend:

 

The GOP is evil, but if the GOP didn't exist, someone would create it. America has had an evangelical white-supremacist problem, from the day it was founded. A powerful movement like that will always have representation.
 
In other words, the real problem is not the GOP. It's the people the GOP caters to. If you wiped out the GOP, some other party would take their place.
 
Hundreds of thousands die from Covid-19, and conservatives complain about ... being made to wear masks.
 
White-supremacism, the KKK, and the Nazis return, and conservatives complain about ... "cancel culture".
 
We are currently living through climate change and an unprecedented mass extinction of plants, animals, and even insects, and conservatives complain about ... excessive regulations on polluters.
 
When a problem occurs, conservatives literally complain that you're trying to stop them from making it worse.

 

Why are people surprised that Republicans remain loyal to Trump even after he tried to have some of them killed? Haven't any of you watched James Bond movies? Blofeld kills his subordinates all the time, and none of them ever turn on him.
 
I remember back in the 2000s, when I would get into arguments with Republicans who said it was totally unfair to compare the GOP to the Westboro Baptist Church (the nutjobs who cruelly mocked deceased gay people at their funerals). They assured me that the WBC was a bunch of fringe whackjobs and would never represent the GOP.
 
Well, the GOP has spent the last ten years transforming itself into the WBC, with the help of Rush Limbaugh and Alex Jones. With Marjorie Taylor Greene, the transformation is complete.
 
They literally made a golden statue of Trump to worship at CPAC. As Megatron would say, this is bad comedy.

 

That last one may trigger some of you.
