While I agree with you in principal: the problem here isn't the internet service providers. Though the onus of fixing it as a systemic problem is probably on them.

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 April 2021 - 03:16 PM)

then how would honest Canadian companies like Rogers or Bell be able to overcharge you for content, or not even make the content available in your region for varied and unknowable reasons?

@  wonko the sane? : (20 April 2021 - 02:33 PM)

It's on the internet, but the internet is being treated like it's regional. It doesn't matter that I'm in canada, It's the internet. Stop enforcing outdated and completely arbitrary broadcast restrictions on the global telecommunication network.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 April 2021 - 02:32 PM)

Nope, security is not my concern at all.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (20 April 2021 - 01:56 PM)

I mean, if you're not worried about security and just using it to access geolocked content, there are free vpns.

@  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.

Dee and EB cleared the path of the initial warriors. This caught them off guard, allowing Kage to Rush from the line of scrimmage to the 33 yard line. However, two of the dozen who were farther back charged towards Kage snarling. It seemed they were planning to trample him or box him in with the cypress tree in his path, then tackle him!

Kage saw the incoming box tackle. Though passing was an option, he wanted to get a little further ahead if he could. So Kage tried to fake them out. Dodging to the left,,he hoped to get the two brutes angled this way... as he then threw himself to the right, hoping his momentum would carry him past the tree and behind the brutes before they had tume to react.

N-no?
What. So you werent expecting more threats to take afvantage of this “Game”?
Uh, well.
Right then. Now stop thinking and start reacting.


Spoiler


Maybe because of his momentum, his timing. Or just plain bad luck. Kage was just a hairs breadth too slow as he spun his body to the right in an evasive roll.

Hearing something akin to a mix between a roar and a gobble, Kage suddenly found himself pecked and clawed by a turdraken, causing him to fumble the ball. Swooping in on a grappel line from his crossbow, Varian Stalebutter snatched the ball before it hit the gound and started running towards the goal line. "Varian Stalebutter, Champion Like No Other, shall triumph at this game!"

The Turdraken caught completely offguard... Until Stalebutter appeared!

With a roar of frustration, Kage managed 6o spin himself away from the pesky bird and took off after the bug witchs ‘Champion’.

“Varian Stalebutter, Cheater Like No Other, shall FAIL!

GET HIM!

"Ah rancid! Butta goes rancid!" Howard shouts. As Varian charges forwards, Howard moves to intercept, preparing for a slide tackle...before he remembers that it is against the rules, and careens off to one side to avoid a penalty...

On unsteady feet, Howard veered to the side and slipped on one of the myriad of puddles across the field with a resounding splash. At least it wasn't one of the trees.

As they passed the 19 yard line, Kage could practically reach out and grab one of Varian's shoulder spikes. Though during this, his target offered a rebuttal of, "What you call cheating, I call tactics. Especially since they didn't declare such actions as illegal. Ah, the mind of a simpleton. No wonder you have no patron."

“I have never had need of a Patron. Nor have any needed me,” Kage said conversationally.

“If your Tactics are entirely rational in your mind, then you don’t understand the nature of the game. 0nly a simpleton would serve a rotten bug witch “Patron” like Moscareina. Here, let me relieve you of thy ill-gotten gain, Rancid man.”

Keep8ng pace with Stalebutter, Kage swooped in.

Snatching the ball away from a surprised Varian Stalebutter, Kage could see the endzone nearby as he passed the 14 yard line. However, the warriors were closing in and Varian wasn't going to give up either. Reaching into his cloak, he tossed a net, the most evil of entrapments, in an attempt to ensnare Kage!

Howard remembered that this part was called blocking. And normally you'd have to block a burly dude! Blocking a net was comparatively simple. Just put yourself between your guy and the net, and charge it...

Kage saw their victory nearing and sped up. Then a flicker in the corner of his eye, along with a feeling of movement in the air, warned him in to dodge. As he jumped forward and to the left, Kage saw the net...

“Ah, the “Tactical” Net. You seek to tangle me up and out of this race then, yes?

Ha! Nets are a common occupational hazard for me.”

...and Howard!

Cursing loudly, as he couldn’t stop to ensure the old man didn’t end up snagged. Kages fake bravado evaporated.

With Howard caught in a net and the others farther back, it was up to Kage to cross the endzone and it was only 9 yards away. "Loathe as I am to admit, you're a worthy competitor. But I didn't come to lose..." Unclipping a pouch from his belt, Varian Stalebutter tossed it to the ground and unleashed a cloud of choking spores into the air!

Hearing the PoeTs call and seeing that he could not pass to anyone else, Kage poured on all the speed he could and hoped.

“Varian Stalebutter, i will take your compliment as intended. However...”

Kage lept into an athletic spin, the Omega Knight swept his cape out and across the expanding cloud of spores. Dispers9ng as much as he could, Kage powered through the thinnest patch and, while they still caused him to gag a bit. His breathing and vision remained clear.

“Your tricks will not avail you. Thus, you will taste defeat!”

Charging ahead, Kage lunged for the endzone!

Once Kage crossed the finish line, a shower of falling leaves fell on him like celebratory confetti. However, Varian Stalebutter was none too pleased. With a sneer, he pointed his crossbow but suddenly, there was a warrior infront of him! YOU NO WIN. YOU GO BACK. Grabbing Varian by the collar, he tossed him back to the line of scrimmage. The field then disappeared.

The group was no worse for wear, though Abby seemed a little winded. However, he vehicle was nowhere to be seen. What they could see less than half away was the light they had been searching for. They were close to the end but what was waiting once they got there...

Kage looked slowly around as the field and the warriors disappeared.

“Well that was, different.”

Seeing the distinct lack of vehicle, Kage sighed.

“Sorry Abby. It looks like your car is lost for now and we are walking the rest of the way.

After this,,i’d say anything is possible. So keep your eyes peeled and your weapons ready.

Howard, are you alright?”
