@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

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

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  Benbot : (07 October 2019 - 07:59 AM)

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

I picked up Hot Rod Thursday. My wallyworld had approximately 10-11 of them, and all but one were packaged backwards. One was packaged correctly. Make of that what you will.

Left.

 

When the car faces right, the car's rear end (rather than its front end) is the most prominently visible part of the car inside the packaging.

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.

I was at a couple of Walmarts this weekend, where it seems that Hot Rod is now being packaged correctly. Has anyone else observed this?


I noticed the same, where previous Hot Rods at the same store were all backwards.

I already have a G1 Hot Rod, but it's tempting to pick one of these up just for the awesome G1 packaging reproduction.  I wish the Masterpiece boxes were like this instead of boring plain black.

Definitely not in store, which sucks because my local store has about 8 of them correctly packaged one. I dont need another hot rod, but at $20 and facing the right way, Id buy.

Buy one online and one in store.  Return the one online with the receipt from the one in store.  Bingo Bango.

That's not a bad idea. I hated the idea of a random employee picking out my Hot Rod for me...

Don't your stores have online pickup? That's all I did - bought it online to pick up in store, no need to get fancy.

Yes but no guarantee the employee will treat my Box kindly, grab a correctly faced Hot Rod, or that if they do grab a correctly faced one, that itll be the one with the best QC on the shelf.

Im weird

I've yet to have an employee at online pickup deny me the ability to swap for another in stock one. It's pretty common practice in Mega Bloks/Construx groups because Walmart tends to list the single figs as an assortment instead of the specific figures and they tend to grab doubles if you order multiples.
