Twitter's revamp is so dumb. Nowadays, even when I am logged out of my account, right-clicking an image on Google Chrome won't let me access a URL to easily get the image's full size. That functionality was so useful!

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 January 2020 - 10:01 PM)

But when was the last time you saw a major retailer (since TRU) actually allot shelf space for a Transformers Titan? Or the Vintage Collection Poe X-Wing? There's clearly some sort of disparity between "girls" and "boys" toys that give companies justification to create $100+ items in the girls segment in FAR greater frequency than in boys.

@  fourteenwings : (25 January 2020 - 12:56 AM)

"how expensive they were" Tell that to L.O.L. O.M.G. and the $129 Amazing Surprise (I mean I guess when it comes to the toy aisle Power Rangers isn't a juggernaut like L.O.L.)

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:18 PM)

I think the big reason we didn't see the actual combining Zords at retail was because of how expensive they were. It would cost $100 to get enough of them to make a Megazord, $160+ if you want the Ultrazord. Or parents could just get the dang Ultrazord for $40 even if it didn't combine.

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

Because they are "kids toys" not "collector toys"

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 03:27 PM)

1) I don't have Target. 2) can't go into my walmart. I'm surprised Hasbro won't sell the toys on Pulse

@  Bass X0 : (24 January 2020 - 02:43 PM)

I dreamt my phone was ringing and woke up to answer it.

@  Sabrblade : (24 January 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The Lightning Collection figures, the smaller normal-sized Beast Morphers Ranger/enemy/Beast-Bot figures, the role-play morpher and weapon toys, and the simplistic non-combining megazord toys have all been very easy to find at various Targets and Walmarts. It's only been the actual combining Beast Morphers zord toys (which are bizarrely being sold individually this time) that have been hard to find in stores.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:49 PM)

Thought I do question Hasbro's almost reluctance to have the toys available anywhere.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 01:44 PM)

i've been trying to sell mine for weeks...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I hadn't opened mine yet, but from what I've seen, the general agreement is that the Beast Morpher zords are much better than Bandais.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I'm guessing if they're going to do anything on the level of Legacy Zords, it's being discussed behind NDAs at Toy Fair

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 January 2020 - 10:38 AM)

Lightning Collection is good, and they're taking their sweet time on making Zords that are better than Bandai's Zords.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 10:34 AM)

So, what's the general PR fandom consensus of the Hasbro run of PR so far? I pretty much stepped out of the community after I got the Bandai Legacy zords I wanted.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 08:46 AM)

that would require someone to BUY Hasbro PR toys...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 07:17 AM)

Well hopefully see some cool PR stuff. Wish BBTS sold Hasbro PR toys.

@  fourteenwings : (24 January 2020 - 07:01 AM)

February 22nd through 25th, I feel like it was earlier last year...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 06:32 AM)

When is NY TF?

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:43 PM)

I don't know about Hasbro's general policy but I know everybody was on lockdown for Frozen II, which included both LEGO and Hasbro. Plus, I'm guessing everybody is holding off PR for NY Toy Fair? Overall, it's best to remember that Toy Fairs are for buyers, not fans.

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:41 PM)

LEGO has been doing this for ages, including sending cease and desists when outlets get leaked images.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:42 PM)

And then they ended up selling off the brand, so I guess I wasn't the only one.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:41 PM)

Last time a toy brand I followed tightened down on toy fair and all the invited guests posted glowing reviews of what they saw, I ended up being disappointed as heck.

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:34 PM)

JediNews UK basically said they got a walkthrough of Lego's showcase...but were legally bound to NOT talk about anything, much less take pics.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:24 PM)

I wondered why I had seen basically nothing newsworthy from the event

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:14 PM)

Word is that Hasbro and Lego have their UK Toy Fair stuff on MAJOR lockdown. Full NDAs and everything.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 09:28 PM)

Seeing people say the $0.99 + $20 shipping item is cheaper than the $19.99 + free shipping item and getting tons of likes for it... I just don't know anymore.

@  Telly : (23 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

if you havent already, y'all check your walmarts clearance aisle. i found siege six shot for $5. course, it could just be my walmart, but never hurts to look

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 January 2020 - 08:42 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 January 2020 - 06:58 PM)

Bold of you all to assume we won't wipe ourselves out in 50 years.

@  Benbot : (22 January 2020 - 04:27 PM)

There will be no UBI, people will just live in a ditch while they celebrate owning the libs.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2020 - 03:24 PM)

In 50 years, retail will be dead because all stores are staffless fully automated operations controlled by Amazon. The UBI will be less than a fifth of what it actually costs to live after two decades of cuts and.a steadfast refusal to match inflation.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 January 2020 - 02:55 PM)

In fifty years retail will be a thing of the past through robots, printers and Universal Basic Income.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (21 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

Big retailers just don't want money anymore, so let's not give them any,

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:12 PM)

This place is a madhouse, feels like being cloned.

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 January 2020 - 03:38 PM)

I took one step beyond the outer limits to the twilight zone.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 10:19 AM)

All retail is basically the same.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2020 - 10:00 AM)

Walmart just needs to go bankrupt already.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:19 AM)

They didn't put the 35th anniversary stuff back out until after new year. I'm no retail expert, but I feel like having stock on the shelf is better than the back. Especially toys at christmas time.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Yeah, my local walmart took away the 35th anniversary endcap weeks before Christmas and left the Transformer section empty well past Christmas.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:44 AM)

Mine only has the 35th Anniversary Voyagers. A whole lot of them.

@  Telly : (19 January 2020 - 11:35 PM)

just be happy your walmart even stocks voyagers. mine doesnt

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 January 2020 - 08:53 PM)

Figures that Walmart finally restocks Studio Voyagers...with Wave ONE

@  ThunderWear : (19 January 2020 - 09:27 AM)

I snagged Rainmakers for half off.  They make me want jolly ranchers.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 04:21 PM)

I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

Besides the "Dragon Ball Star" bit, this bugged me:

At one point, the slightly exasperated judge asked the defense, Why are we complaining about stuff thats on the internet? Lets try to get to something relevant.


...I'm not even going to say it.

That's  more the the Grift4Me and will likely double if he appeals.

 

Ironbite-though Beard is going on vacation so.....we'll see.

 

ETA: Actually looking at the costs that could incur if he does appeal that's more then enough to scare him off from appealing.  But knowing this idiot, he probably thinks he's got a case and will more then likely try and go all the way to the Texas Supreme Court.

 

Ironbite-we'll see if he keeps Beard on though.

The GFM is out of money and probably has been for awhile now.  Percy needed funds for his vacation and Screech got to have his cut of the dough.

 

Ironbite-that payment is coming straight from Vic's own pocket.

I've had a day to think about this and, after looking at the VicStains claiming this is a win, I'm gonna give it to them.  For one reason and one reason only.

 

The death threats worked.

 

Chupp wanted this entire mess off his hands as soon as possible.  Death threats are no laughing matter and he wanted to get the hell away as soon as he could.  Thus the massive haircut to the fees and sanctions.  However, Vic's still on the hook for a quarter of a million and that's not small change.

 

Ironbite-and all of it out of his own pocket.

Oh no.  Chupp took the freaking razor to the traditional haircut.  I think defendants weren't able to get across how bad Screech's little cabal of hatred was for everybody and how Vic really had absolutely no stake in this lawsuit outside of calling Percy every few weeks to find out if he won.

 

Ironbite-still, quarter of a million out of pocket is gonna be a wake up call and we'll see how soon he appeals.

Ok so Percy's going on vacation and told the court he wouldn't be available for at least a month.  SOMEHOW! he hugged up his first notice and had to submit a first amended notice.  First meaning there's more stuff he messed up with so there'll probably be a second amended notice.

Nick and Vic broke up.

 

Ok I know what that sounds like but hear me out for a second.  Screech decided to get hammered last night and play some Dark Souls.  Yeah I know.  Best game for that.  While playing the game, someone asked him about Vic.  And to that end, he replied.  Oh boy did he reply.

 

 

In case you don't want to read, Nick tried to get Vic up on the show last night and Vic just shut him down.  Then, it seems that Vic told Nick not to post pictures of the two of them together.  So all in all, NIck's coming to the realization that Vic played him just a bit more then Nick played Vic.  Now here's the problem that Vic might have if Screech decides to get vindictive.  Screech not only knows where the bodies are buried, he helped bury them.  He knows where all of Vic's dirty little secrets in this lawsuit are and I do not think he's not the type to unbury them because he's "hurt".  So for Vic to finally wake up and see that Screech is poison and just dump him like this, not a smart move by Vic I think.  But then again, Vic's not a smart man.

 

Ironbite-as we've seen...HAPPY 1 YEAR ANNIVERSERY #KICKVIC!

It's a little more complicated then that me thinks.  If you'll allow me to speculate

 

Vic got his first real bill from this endeavor.  Like we know that the Grift4Me is not controlled by Vic at all.  So when he went to Screech he found out there's absolutely nothing in the fund at all.  It's all been billed and collected for.  And this has Vic absolutely furious.  Couple this with a huuuuuuuuuuuuge lack of any convention invites and Vic is realizing that this whole lawsuit is going to cost him money.  Major money.

 

Ironbite-and it couldn't happen to a nicer creep.
