I've barely used them over the years, so I'm sure they won't miss me, but I'm done too. Thankfully Pulse put up the Seacons today.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:58 PM)

i didnt complete it, which is why this is confusing and pi$$ing me off. theres no record of it in my order history. i emailed them about it, so we will see what happens. either way, i think im done using them after this

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

Either we're both unlucky or they're trying to force payment now for these takaratomy mall exclusives.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I asked them to kindly undo that and I got a sternly worded email about how I should use their website right.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

Yeah, if you completed the order, they charged you the money now. Mine said stack before I finished checking out. I only noticed I was charged because of Paypal.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:53 PM)

i wasnt even wanting to pay now. i was going to add them to my stack but i didnt get the chance after i was done setting up paypal

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:53 PM)

If you haven't officially placed the order, I don't think so? Although, I had to request a cancellation with them last week because their system changed details about my order after I placed it, so I don't exactly trust them.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:51 PM)

so im not actually being charged then?

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:48 PM)

So, if you were one click away from purchasing, then they probably did the pre-authorization already. The next click will charge you the money now.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:47 PM)

TFsource charges upfront for regular pre-orders.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i was considering buying the upcoming seacons from tfsource. i had them in my cart and was on the checkout page. i set up a credit card through paypal, and before i even hit the "place order" button, i got a text saying that a charge or hold was placed on my card! is this normal? is it just checking to see if i have the money? why did it do it before i even placed the order??

So whenever he addresses his troops, he keeps cracking jokes. Sometimes these jokes are about the blunders he himself had made in his speech the previous day.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 01:01 PM)

At the moment, I'm blessed with a pretty nice superior. He's got a military background, but he takes an oddly entertaining approach to it. Imagine a stand-up comedian who accidentally enlisted as a drill sergeant.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:54 PM)

Another type of everyday absurdity: Imagine you're leaving your workplace for your lunchbreak. Upon your return, you discover that your workplace has been cordened and/or gated off during your break, with "construction site" warning signs everywhere. You go to your superior and tell him: "I can no longer access my workplace! Why is there suddenly a construction site?" Your superior takes a surpised look and says: "I don't know, first time I see this." You figure: "Must be a Tuesday, then."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:51 PM)

It's kind of surreal, really.

What's it like to have management that's willing to listen to things they don't want to hear? I've never seen that.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:41 AM)

I manage to argue within the company's own internal logic and point out the flaws, shortcomings and discrepancies between "official company policy" and "everyday company reality".

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:40 AM)

Many of my coworkers are scared to even talk to managers. I often discuss company matters with them I disagree with, and it isn't a rare occurrence that they say "yeah, you're right..."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:38 AM)

I know how to watch my tone, and I prefer to keep things straightforward and factual, never to attack the person, always the problem itself.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:37 AM)

The good thing for me is ever since a minor hiccup many years ago when I was still non-permanent, I've always managed to along just fine with my various superiors (I've been through over a dozen already). And that's despite my outspokenness, my blunt honesty and my oftentimes harsh criticism.

@  Echowarrior : (18 October 2019 - 09:19 AM)

Amazon in the US has pretty good benefits, though, and even the temp workers had forty hours a week to start with. Even with minimum wage, that's pretty good pay.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Oh, the turnover rates are high here as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Amazon.com and .ca, on the other hand, can be pretty terrible. I know from your squawkbox posts that you guys have your issues with Amazon over there, although you're lucky to have stronger government regulations and a union there. I gather the warehouse workers in the USA and Canada have it pretty crappy, with very high turnover, close to minimum wage pay, and no unions

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:38 PM)

Amazon.de doesn't really have the same issue. I've ordered from them (and UK, FR, IT and JP) several times, and their packaging is much better

@  Nevermore : (17 October 2019 - 05:22 PM)

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.

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

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

So, in the one SDCC interview, John Warden indicates that more movie stuff (not TLK) is to be shown at Hascon; it's hard not to think that it will be the leaked list from last week.

So, of the leaked characters, which are you most happy about? Which do you really not care for and would rather see replaced by another character or design?

I think my favorite thing so far about this line is the loose scale they are implementing. The only character that kind of seems out of place is Ratchet; I always think of him and Ironhide as supposed to be the same size in bot mode. But it's great that they saved the leader class for characters who are supposed to be huge, and all the voyager characters are close to the same size in bot mode.

The one character I think I'm most looking forward to is Stinger since he didn't get a real toy for AoE. He isn't much of a character but he looks great and is a neat concept. Blackout is a close second, of course; it seems like they switched him and Brawl and that should have been the case back in 2007.

I am sort of disappointed that Megatron is in his ROTF form. His ROTF voyager was pretty good, though I do hope this new one does not rely on kibble wings and has a more accurate bot mode as a result. I think I would have preffered his 2007 design as I think they could make a much betfer toy of it if it didnt have to accomodate the claw-wings gimmick and ice parts.

Im also surprised to not see Bumblebee, but I figure they plan to remold Stinger into him eventually.

Honestly, I hope they also end up using this line as a chance to re-release some of the molds that never came here before- like Que, Soundwave, Leadfoot and probably Cogman.

Leader Blackout is the only one that interested me, and that's mostly because he's got an actual toy design and not just a render.

But I made the hard switch to Cyberverse during DotM, so unless we see small scale stuff (Tiny Titan Changers!) I'd probably just pass on it all.

I've limited my movie collection to just the cast of the first film, so Blackout is definitely the (word meaning the thing where dogs' ears perk up) figure for me here.

The idea of whole new deluxe Jazz intrigues me.  The original wasn't great even by 2007 standards, and I'm really interested what more current design teams would do with the character design.

I'd love a better looking toy of 66 Camaro Bumblebee from AOE. I really liked the look of that car and wish that the existing toy didn't look so weird in robot mode.

Other than that, new Jazz and Blackout sound interesting.

Bonecrusher is the worst Movie 1 Decepticon toy, imo. Blackout's not great, but its still better and have at least a few gimmick to excuse some of that, and Brawl got a leader class toy since his Deluxe toy is nullified.

I tend to forget about the Movie 1 designs for him since as a Character Megatron does get some better toys from other movies, so he's not a character I think of when I think 'needs a better representation' since at the very least his DOTM and TLK toys are good.

Never owned that mold, so you might be right there. Though I kinda blank out on the non-movie characters regardless, even ones I own and really like...

I don't know what the problem is with Bonecrusher, other than being too small. 

 

I mean he has the incredible huggy stretchy arms and his cool scorpion tail weapon that's pretty much accurate to the film.
