@  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)

@  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)

@  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)

...what?

Hot Rod seems like the obvious identity for the last unknown Deluxe to me.

 

Equally, Onslaught almost certainly isn't the last unknown Voyager, which is just depressing.

Because it's a Voyager and he's a non-Megatron Decepticon. If it is, great - we don't know of any obvious other candidates - but I don't think getting my hopes up about movie Decepticon toys at this time is a good plan.

 

I believe we had a list of waves and size classes, but I don't know if we know they're complete beyond "this is how many toys Hasbro has told retailers are in the assortment" - which has changed in the past, but not often, and probably not for a movie line which has to be scheduled as an actual summer event thing. They need to know when to go back to planning on the usual smaller numbers of RID and Generations.

Remember when the Movieverse toyline just wouldn't die, giving us things like toasters and forklifts and cargo planes (with mini-Optimuses!) just for the hell of it? *sigh*

I don't doubt it's Grimstone given how TLK's shaping up, but PCCs wouldn't budge at $20. Even half-off sales barely got the line past the first wave. Nearly doubling the price... might as well make them part of the shelves.

 

Eh... it's a TRU exclusive. Using a questionable mold and hiking the price seem par for the course.

 

And this would have movie support, Slug's in the movie and there are Mini-Dinobots too? I'd expect some media support would make this more appealing to kids than PCCs were originally.

So, is that MP Prime listing the reissue MP-10? Or something else? Can't see them making a Bee-style new mold MP for movie Prime, but I could see them redecoing something as a Movie Masterpiece. Unless that's just the reissue.

 

(Still feel odd about MP Movie Bee. Like 6, 7 years ago I'd have been all over it, but now my reaction is just "ok")

It's specifically TLK product, and way too cheap for the MP-10 reissue.

Given that it's only $100 compared to Bee and Barricade's $80, I wouldn't be surprised if it's just a fancy-paint-job redeco of the ROTF Leader. Well, that or it's just a really out of scale new mould.

Ahh, that's what I vaguely wondered.

 

Once again, if it's a redeco of the Buster Prime mold (which I suspect now) it's product I would love to have owned...6, 7 years back (but didn't have the free cash for), and now feel like I've kind of moved past.

 

(1% of me also holds out hope that they're just, like, selling MP10 for really cheap. I CAN DREAM).

Considering the rest of the TLK toyline and the price point and the fact that the first two MPMs were also just redecoed Leaders, I think ROTF Prime seems the most likely.

 

But also, considering Bee and Barricade are $80 and that's way over the Japanese retail for MPs, I suppose there's room for a vague hope that it's a new mold with a slightly less brutal profit margin.

All they really need to do to make Masterpiece Prime is to retool the legs of the ROTF version in such a way that the wheels can sit flush on his thighs.

Edited by Locoman, 28 February 2017 - 10:58 PM.

"He learned, almost too late, that man is a feeling creature and, because of it, the greatest in the universe. He learned, too late for himself, that men have to make their own way, to make their own mistakes. There can't be any gift of perfection from outside ourselves. And, when men seek such perfection, they find there's only death, fire, loss, disillusionment, the end of everything that's gone forward. Men have always sought an end to toil and misery. It can't be given; it has to be achieved. There is hope, but it has to come from inside, from man himself."

Yeah, the last movie gave us a TRU exclusive of Energon Grimlock, but without the Swoop that (poorly) justified him being a crap figure. I can totally believe the movie giving us a PCC repaint as a $35 exclusive.

I'm hoping "5-bot combiner & Slug" is a Grimstone redeco ... and Slug. The dinodrones can be mini Dinobots (well, without robot modes) in the spirit of the film's supposed ones.

Blackout had like three Extremely Toyetic Gimmicks that never made it into any of his toys. His most accurate rendition is the Cyberverse Commander five years later.
