Oh my god... I forgot entirely about yellowstone.

Until the third civil war. Or yellowstone, whatever's good.

@  tigerhawk : (18 January 2021 - 05:18 AM)

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:55 PM)

So it's been a while since I've had a misassembled Transformers toy.

@  Echowarrior : (11 January 2021 - 10:02 AM)

More Micromasters would be welcome.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 January 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Instructions unclear, have more sports cars.

@  tigerhawk : (11 January 2021 - 01:57 AM)

Or they could make the other Micromasters of the teams they half assed.

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 January 2021 - 11:20 PM)

There should be a box set of eight Stakeouts.

@  Bass X0 : (10 January 2021 - 08:27 PM)

There should be a box-set of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. But I'm not expecting it.

@  Nevermore : (10 January 2021 - 07:51 PM)

I hope there are re-releases this year!

@  tigerhawk : (10 January 2021 - 03:59 PM)

I hope there's rereleases of Earthrise Ramjet, Dirge and Ratchet next year.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

Oh no, he was loved. I'd argue he could have had a better life physically, but he was loved. Deeply.

@  Telly : (08 January 2021 - 01:42 AM)

as long s/he gave love and was loved, it was a good life

@  Echowarrior : (07 January 2021 - 11:10 PM)

Poor puppy. Poor kid.

@  CORVUS : (07 January 2021 - 03:04 PM)

My condolences :(

@  wonko the sane? : (07 January 2021 - 10:45 AM)

So: My sisters dog just had a heart attack and died... while her 12 year old son was walking him. Welcome to 2021 everybody!

@  Dekafox : (04 January 2021 - 07:24 PM)

Except they're Deceptican'ts usually.

@  Devcon : (04 January 2021 - 05:17 PM)

Depending on which dub: Either Decepticons or Decepticans.

@  Bass X0 : (04 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Deception is the French word for disappointment. What does that make the Decepticons in France?

@  Echowarrior : (03 January 2021 - 11:29 PM)

We're just tiny little specks, about the size of Mickey Rooney.

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 January 2021 - 04:33 PM)

It's a great big universe, and we're all really puny.

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned, a sun that is the source of all our power

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving and revolving at nine hundred miles an hour.

@  TM2-Megatron : (02 January 2021 - 11:57 PM)

relative to the speed that it's swirling around the centre of the galaxy, its rotation is fairly slow

@  PlutoniumBoss : (02 January 2021 - 09:31 PM)

I'd like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slowly.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 January 2021 - 07:21 PM)

The Earth moving gave us 2021.

@  ▲ndrusi : (02 January 2021 - 10:50 AM)

It does that.

Targets near me clearanced their BotBots out. Fred Meyer still carries them, but they're so stocked up on series 3 I doubt they'll be putting out series 4 or later anytime soon.

BotBot availability has always been spotty around here, but Target seems to be the most reliable place to find them. Ive seen series 4 pretty consistently lately, think I even saw series 5 a couple times.

Hopefully 5 starts to show up soon. I wonder if the sudden appearance in the US so early in the year was a fluke, as 4 was just starting to hit its stride. Now 5 only seems to be available on Amazon (all multipacks except one 5-pack type, the Cardio Clique, annoyingly) and non-US markets like the UK and Malaysia. (Singles I've only seen of late mentioned as coming from Toywiz, who of course are gleefully pricing a case accordingly.)

I think we heard at the time that Series 5 wasn't supposed to ship when it did, but around here, at least, the multipacks made fairly heavy appearances at Target. No singles yet, though, so hopefully those are still sitting somewhere in the pipeline.

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.

Walgreen's seems to have stopped selling BotBots.  I've been to every one I can get to in my region, looking for Bluestreak, and no BotBots anywhere.

Yeah, mine stopped months ago.  Once Target cleared out their stock at the end of summer, that was it for my area...other than some lone Series 1 singles in a few Family Dollars, no one carries BotBots at all around here.

Well, I guess it's likely over then, as I expected this close to Christmas that they might at the very least make an advent calendar or something.  Too bad, I had hoped to get the goldfish, toilet, and skull.  Of course, now that I post this I expect I might be proven wrong, though I would have expected them to announce the closing of the line, like they did with Cyberverse.  We'll see.

Official Hasbro account on Lazada.sg has series 5 5-packs up; it's the only place I've seen with the Cardio Clique. (I think I saw a Malaysian online store with them once but can't recall for sure.) Amazon just has Party Favors and Los Deliciosos.

 

Now if only they'd get the 8-packs in, and those dang singles.

I'm considering buying some packs from Amazon, but they send random packs right? I never really liked the blind pack toys but buying one of different listing could be fun.

That's how buying Botbots from online stores goes, I believe (at least for listings of just the tribe rather than a specific pack). Each tribe has its own assortment number (or whatever that's called), so putting in an order for, say two Home Rangers packs tells them to pull two E#### packs from a case and send.

 

As such you could get two different packs or two of the same. It's like an extra level of blind-packing, and makes the process a bit harder. But if you're not angling for any packs in particular, it isn't a dealbreaker.

Series 4 and earlier packs showing up at Ross, and series 5 5-packs trickling back into regular US retail, apparently. (Also there's at lease one sighting of series 5 singles in the UK at Home Bargains for 99p.)

Actually it was just one (the Hibotchi Heats one that has Camcon and Wah-Waaah the Clown in it), but I'm sure any of them are at some Ross or another.

And just like all the older 8-packs they had, it was $5.99.
