Oh, that makes more sense.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 February 2019 - 07:31 AM)

Haven't given it to him yet. Not sure when I will, but soon. Wah Wah is what he calls any vehicle with a siren, and the little bugger just LOVES firetrucks. So I got him a rescue bot heatwave.

@  repowers : (16 February 2019 - 02:41 AM)

I hope he said "You've given me a wah-wah"

@  Dekafox : (16 February 2019 - 12:48 AM)

A red panda?

@  Rodimus Supreme : (15 February 2019 - 11:06 PM)

*WAH

@  Rodimus Supreme : (15 February 2019 - 11:05 PM)

THE HECK IS A WHAH WAH?!?!?!

@  wonko the sane? : (15 February 2019 - 08:54 PM)

Yay! My nephew's Wah Wah showed up today!

@  wonko the sane? : (14 February 2019 - 08:55 AM)

Or you could come to canada, where bureaucracy is a publically funded art form! So garbage and used condoms trying to make a statement about something or other, not entirely sure what.

@  Nevermore : (14 February 2019 - 06:10 AM)

We've turned it into an art form.

@  Nevermore : (14 February 2019 - 06:10 AM)

You think you know bureaucracy, but you've never been to Germany.

@  RichardT1977 : (13 February 2019 - 11:48 PM)

I think a better counterpart would be "society".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 February 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Is Verbesserschlimmerung a change that was intented to make things worse but made them better instead?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 February 2019 - 07:35 AM)

We have a similar word in english "government".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:05 AM)

The meaning of this word is: A change that was intended as an improvement but ended up making things worse.

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

It's a portmanteau of "Verbesserung", which means "improvement", and "Verschlimmerung", which means "worsening".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

Your new German word for today: Verschlimmbesserung.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:17 PM)

Fortunately it's been long enough now that the possibility exists another label like Shout Factory or Arrow could pick it up and give it an updated release.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:16 PM)

It's the same with their Dawn of the Dead blu-ray, and several others

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:11 PM)

In Volcano's case it isn't so much a case just of amazon or eBay sellers... it looks like rather than releasing it directly, Fox licensed it out to Starz/Anchor Bay, and it's subsequently gone out of print

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 February 2019 - 01:28 PM)

There's Amazon sellers for you.

@  Telly : (12 February 2019 - 12:49 PM)

thought about buying volcano on bluray last night, until i saw the price on amazon: $135. the used ones arent much cheaper at $90. i know the 3p sellers can set any price they want, but come on. $90-$135 for a 20 year old movie that was only so-so?

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 05:12 AM)

GOt my hopes up there for a bit. Last I heard it was nebulously in 2019.

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 February 2019 - 05:00 AM)

Nope, none for REmake or Zero either.

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 04:13 AM)

Do we have a release date?

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 February 2019 - 03:51 AM)

Looking forward to RE4 on Switch, it will be my annual playthrough.

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 01:40 AM)

Don't call Floridans that. It's degrading to marine mammals.

@  Ashley : (12 February 2019 - 12:41 AM)

Oh, the huge manatee

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 February 2019 - 10:55 PM)

Anyone here ever been to the Manatee Viewing Center right outside Apollo Beach, Florida?

@  unluckiness : (11 February 2019 - 08:35 PM)

The manatees were extra eager that day.

@  ▲ndrusi : (11 February 2019 - 08:10 PM)

Maybe they accidentally got some editorial oversight for a while or something.

@  Shrug : (11 February 2019 - 07:03 PM)

And it shifted gears the season after, it's like there was a different head writer or editor or something one year

@  Shrug : (11 February 2019 - 07:03 PM)

There was some random season after the cancellation that I thought was amazing, but I don't watch the show closely enough to tell you which one it was

@  Benbot : (11 February 2019 - 01:20 PM)

Your unintentional typo is right. It is definitely tp-tier material.

@  unluckiness : (11 February 2019 - 08:36 AM)

It was never tp-tier material but I used to be able to keep it on as white noise while I'm doing something else Now, I have to switch the channel because it just pisses me off at how unfunny it is.

@  Benbot : (11 February 2019 - 08:23 AM)

I don't think it's ever been very good since the initial cancellation/revival.

@  unluckiness : (11 February 2019 - 08:03 AM)

And still the same so-called "humor" but worse

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 February 2019 - 08:00 AM)

New writers, new showrunners, fatigue. That shows had many changes over the years.

@  unluckiness : (11 February 2019 - 06:35 AM)

I don't know how it's possible but Family Guy has somehow gotten less funny.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 February 2019 - 08:47 PM)

Do you mean the retail price from when ToyBiz were making ML or the current price of vintage ToyBiz specimens?

@  B-Fox : (10 February 2019 - 08:40 PM)

Target had the entirety of the ML Deadpool Sauron BAF wave on discount. Got Omega Red and X-23 for the cost of 2 Toy Biz Marvel Legends.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 February 2019 - 02:30 PM)

How long do y'all wager it will be until Evolution Optimal Optimus shows at Ollie's in the U.S.?

@  TheMightyMol... : (10 February 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Kingdom Hearts 4: The Search For More Money.

@  fourteenwings : (10 February 2019 - 11:09 AM)

Actual lyrics to the ending theme of KH3: "I'm only crying 'cause I never dreamed it'd take this long."

@  Paladin : (10 February 2019 - 08:25 AM)

somebody wins, somebody dies, Disney gets all the money ever. The End.

@  Pennpenn : (10 February 2019 - 02:48 AM)

Please don't go into the details of the ending of KH3 any more than you have so far in the shoutbox. Thank you.

Nuremberg Toy Fair, home of the Notorious BGM, has started. As per usual, we might get a press release for a flagship mainline toy, we might get descriptions from attendees, we might get blurry photos.

NY Toy Fair is the weekend of the 18th.

It's honestly really exciting going into this with no leaks of what the new figures will look like!

Bald German Man returns but disguised as non-Bald German Man.

 

Guessing we'll see the last couple waves of TR, the first  waves of Last Knight stuff. Specifically, we'll probably see Blitzwing, Octane and Overlord. Maybe Trypticon, and confirmation of the next Generations subline.

This is a bit early much Power of the Primes stuff, I think. They might bring up the Prime vote but nothing toy-y, I'd guess.

Individual toys at NYTF, I'm thinking:

Titan Masters:
- Optimus Prime
- Toraizer
- Ramhorn

Legends:
- Cosmos
- Seaspray

Deluxe:
- Crosshairs
- Misfire
- Slugslinger

Voyager:
- Octane
- Blitzwing

Leader:
- Overlord

Titan:
- Trypticon

Then we'll probably see the last TR stuff at SDCC, and get a full reveal of the first POTP stuff at NYCC.

There are a bunch of Simba toys that have been revealed for Nuremburg.

 

Hot Wheels/Matchbox style cars based on Robots in Disguise Optimus, Bumblebee, Strongarm, Sideswipe, Drift, Steeljaw... and even Grimlock as a T-Rex shaped dragster/hot rod! There are about a dozen different color schemes for each car, and some having a light up gimmick.

 

There's single packs, 2-packs featuring the car and a PVC robot mode of the character, 3-packs, 5-packs... any way you can imagine them getting released. The robot mode PVCs exist for each of the cars, as well as Underbyte and Slipstream.

 

Ad then there's a play set scaled to those cars, an RC Drift that can convert to robot mode, some Laser tag or roleplaying weapons and vests... Just... Lots of RiD.

I expect to see a painted Trypticon and Blitzwing.

 

Mainly because I've seen the former and a very crappy picture of the latter's deco sheet.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Wow, that Optimus trailer alone might be worth the price of admission for me. Provided I can actually hitch it to one of my proper robots. With the various sizes of Optimus out there, one of them HAS to work.

I expect people to complain about how it was a huge letdown because Hasbro didn't reveal a minimum of twenty-three (23) previously unrumored 100% perfect 3D recreations of G1 cartoon models and/or MTMTE/LL designs perfectly scaled for The Classics Shelf.
