"how expensive they were" Tell that to L.O.L. O.M.G. and the $129 Amazing Surprise (I mean I guess when it comes to the toy aisle Power Rangers isn't a juggernaut like L.O.L.)

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:18 PM)

I think the big reason we didn't see the actual combining Zords at retail was because of how expensive they were. It would cost $100 to get enough of them to make a Megazord, $160+ if you want the Ultrazord. Or parents could just get the dang Ultrazord for $40 even if it didn't combine.

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

Because they are "kids toys" not "collector toys"

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 03:27 PM)

1) I don't have Target. 2) can't go into my walmart. I'm surprised Hasbro won't sell the toys on Pulse

@  Bass X0 : (24 January 2020 - 02:43 PM)

I dreamt my phone was ringing and woke up to answer it.

@  Sabrblade : (24 January 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The Lightning Collection figures, the smaller normal-sized Beast Morphers Ranger/enemy/Beast-Bot figures, the role-play morpher and weapon toys, and the simplistic non-combining megazord toys have all been very easy to find at various Targets and Walmarts. It's only been the actual combining Beast Morphers zord toys (which are bizarrely being sold individually this time) that have been hard to find in stores.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:49 PM)

Thought I do question Hasbro's almost reluctance to have the toys available anywhere.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 01:44 PM)

i've been trying to sell mine for weeks...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I hadn't opened mine yet, but from what I've seen, the general agreement is that the Beast Morpher zords are much better than Bandais.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I'm guessing if they're going to do anything on the level of Legacy Zords, it's being discussed behind NDAs at Toy Fair

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 January 2020 - 10:38 AM)

Lightning Collection is good, and they're taking their sweet time on making Zords that are better than Bandai's Zords.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 10:34 AM)

So, what's the general PR fandom consensus of the Hasbro run of PR so far? I pretty much stepped out of the community after I got the Bandai Legacy zords I wanted.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 08:46 AM)

that would require someone to BUY Hasbro PR toys...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 07:17 AM)

Well hopefully see some cool PR stuff. Wish BBTS sold Hasbro PR toys.

@  fourteenwings : (24 January 2020 - 07:01 AM)

February 22nd through 25th, I feel like it was earlier last year...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 06:32 AM)

When is NY TF?

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:43 PM)

I don't know about Hasbro's general policy but I know everybody was on lockdown for Frozen II, which included both LEGO and Hasbro. Plus, I'm guessing everybody is holding off PR for NY Toy Fair? Overall, it's best to remember that Toy Fairs are for buyers, not fans.

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:41 PM)

LEGO has been doing this for ages, including sending cease and desists when outlets get leaked images.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:42 PM)

And then they ended up selling off the brand, so I guess I wasn't the only one.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:41 PM)

Last time a toy brand I followed tightened down on toy fair and all the invited guests posted glowing reviews of what they saw, I ended up being disappointed as heck.

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:34 PM)

JediNews UK basically said they got a walkthrough of Lego's showcase...but were legally bound to NOT talk about anything, much less take pics.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:24 PM)

I wondered why I had seen basically nothing newsworthy from the event

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:14 PM)

Word is that Hasbro and Lego have their UK Toy Fair stuff on MAJOR lockdown. Full NDAs and everything.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 09:28 PM)

Seeing people say the $0.99 + $20 shipping item is cheaper than the $19.99 + free shipping item and getting tons of likes for it... I just don't know anymore.

@  Telly : (23 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

if you havent already, y'all check your walmarts clearance aisle. i found siege six shot for $5. course, it could just be my walmart, but never hurts to look

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 January 2020 - 06:58 PM)

Bold of you all to assume we won't wipe ourselves out in 50 years.

@  Benbot : (22 January 2020 - 04:27 PM)

There will be no UBI, people will just live in a ditch while they celebrate owning the libs.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2020 - 03:24 PM)

In 50 years, retail will be dead because all stores are staffless fully automated operations controlled by Amazon. The UBI will be less than a fifth of what it actually costs to live after two decades of cuts and.a steadfast refusal to match inflation.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 January 2020 - 02:55 PM)

In fifty years retail will be a thing of the past through robots, printers and Universal Basic Income.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (21 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

Big retailers just don't want money anymore, so let's not give them any,

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:12 PM)

This place is a madhouse, feels like being cloned.

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 January 2020 - 03:38 PM)

I took one step beyond the outer limits to the twilight zone.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 10:19 AM)

All retail is basically the same.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2020 - 10:00 AM)

Walmart just needs to go bankrupt already.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:19 AM)

They didn't put the 35th anniversary stuff back out until after new year. I'm no retail expert, but I feel like having stock on the shelf is better than the back. Especially toys at christmas time.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Yeah, my local walmart took away the 35th anniversary endcap weeks before Christmas and left the Transformer section empty well past Christmas.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:44 AM)

Mine only has the 35th Anniversary Voyagers. A whole lot of them.

@  Telly : (19 January 2020 - 11:35 PM)

just be happy your walmart even stocks voyagers. mine doesnt

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 January 2020 - 08:53 PM)

Figures that Walmart finally restocks Studio Voyagers...with Wave ONE

@  ThunderWear : (19 January 2020 - 09:27 AM)

I snagged Rainmakers for half off.  They make me want jolly ranchers.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 04:21 PM)

I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:23 AM)

Well there is an overpriced limited edition, but I don't want to pay that much money for it.

I tasted the food, so I'm not surprised.

Now I'm imagining that there was a mysterious gasoline flavor that tinged all the food for unknown reasons, and that it started to make much more sense after the cafeteria ladies tried to set fire to the school by dropping a lighted match onto a trail of dipping sauce.

What does it mean to foffy a sheep

 
Foffy used to just be my name, but after an unfortunate incident involving a street race, a crashed car, and a farm vehicle that had the keys left in it, "Foffy" has now become a slang term that refers to the act of crashing into something in midair while driving a tractor.

why should we foffy them?

You probably shouldn't. There are surface-to-air missiles in place all throughout the country, and the people manning them have strict orders to shoot down any tractors they see. It's probably in your best interest to keep any farm vehicles you're driving out of the air, as the United States government now regards any airborne tractor as a threat to national security.
 

Do you like pasta?

Yes.

do you taste like pasta?

No.

I don't know if I asked an appropriately foffy question, but that seems a nattily foffy answer; quite nice. Would this be the tractor of a tractor trailer truck, or a farm tractor? I seem to recall something from one of those Die Harderer trailers involving a car and a helicopter, but that seems straight out. It also reminds me of our local custom of fwiffing, which is for a moderator to lock or delete a discussion thread entirely by accident. 

 

What's your favorite HVAC technician service? Have you ever exposed someone to or, through inaction, caused someone to be exposed to the suggestion that UGG boots are a good idea? Least favorite condiment and letter in the alphabet?

A farm tractor.

I seem to recall something from one of those Die Harderer trailers involving a car and a helicopter, but that seems straight out.

There was a scene in Live Free or Die Hard where a car crashes into a helicopter; that's probably what you're thinking of. On an unrelated note, the original Die Hard is a great Christmas movie; some have even said that Die Hard is to Christmas as The Boondock Saints is to Saint Patrick's Day.

It also reminds me of our local custom of fwiffing, which is for a moderator to lock or delete a discussion thread entirely by accident.

I don't know what an HVAC technician is. They sound tasty, though.

No.

Least favorite condiment and letter in the alphabet?

I don't there's anything that's both a condiment and a letter of the alphabet. Tea comes pretty close, since it's both a drink and a letter of the alphabet, so I guess I'll go with that.

Probably depends on the animal. Like, if you cut a starfish into a bunch of different pieces, would the seventh one to fully regenerate count as a seventh son? Or are starfishes automatically ineligible due to their lack of gender? Is gender a factor to be considered in this? If so, what about those snails that change gender to reproduce? (I forget if that's just a specific species of snail, or all of them.) How would that work? And if a dog gives birth to a litter of seven puppies, would all the puppies be seventh sons if they came out at the same time?

All at the same time !!!!! that would really hurt.  But yeah a litter of seven. Wonder if the runts of the litters are really destined for greatness? Single gender animals i'd have to say it wouldn't work though.

Perhaps. Wilbur from Charlotte's Web was the runt of the litter, and look what happened to him!

Single gender animals i'd have to say it wouldn't work though.

Well, there goes my plan to amass an army of seventh son starfish and use them to take over the tri-state area.

Yes.

I'm indifferent to cows, honestly. I don't like hamburgers, though, so make of that what you will.

Yes.

I like chicken nuggets, so I don't think chickens and I would get along very well.

Yes.

No. Geese are mean.
