I dunno if to call them the worst salesperson ever or the best.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2021 - 01:33 PM)

They must not have really wanted to sell you anything.

@  Sabrblade : (16 April 2021 - 09:19 AM)

This just happened to be the first time one ever gave up and walked away immediately after ringing the bell. Like, no patience at all or something.

@  Sabrblade : (16 April 2021 - 09:17 AM)

Covid didn't stop salespeople from coming to my neighborhood. They are still a consistent annoyance.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 April 2021 - 08:16 AM)

door to door salesmen (or those offering religion) certainly are one of the things lost to COVID that I've missed the least

@  Sabrblade : (15 April 2021 - 10:07 AM)

They rang the bell and were walking away before I even got to the door mere seconds later.

@  Sabrblade : (15 April 2021 - 10:06 AM)

I just got ding-dong-ditched by a salesperson.

A comic, yes, but we need a figure!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 April 2021 - 06:27 AM)

No.. It's Tiberious Maximus... And there is a comic with such already. :D

@  Donocropolis : (12 April 2021 - 11:15 AM)

Yes. Color it like the Energon version of Unicron. Also, give us Fortress Tiberious.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 April 2021 - 09:49 AM)

Great. Now I want a borg cube unicron...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (12 April 2021 - 09:00 AM)

We still need Transformers x Star Trek toy.

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 April 2021 - 05:39 AM)

I saw most of them at retail at TRU, but that's not an option in the US anymore.

Dibs on naming the Ark robot Arkonus.

@  Kalidor : (11 April 2021 - 09:48 PM)

The only Titan figure I ever saw at retail was Trypticon at Ollie's

@  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.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (11 April 2021 - 04:30 PM)

It's a jargon-shattering figure.

@  Kalidor : (10 April 2021 - 08:50 PM)

The licensed Optimus Prime that transforms itself is the appropriate usage of the term "Third Party"

@  Donocropolis : (10 April 2021 - 08:24 AM)

That Optimus isn't built by Hasbro, only licensed. The company that makes it has been making similar robots for years, so no crowdfundng required.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 April 2021 - 08:05 AM)

Apparently they're selling one for 74 and a half thousand dollars.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 April 2021 - 08:01 AM)

We could write boston dynamics and ask?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 April 2021 - 07:59 AM)

Granted, I'm not sure how much robots with elaborate movement tend to go for.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 April 2021 - 07:56 AM)

I think with actual robotics it was easier to justify selling it at a high cost, compared to an unusually large action figure.

Patch found an elderly, emaciated, and blindfolded man. Similarly, he casting something that created faint violet wisps that shifted to a dingy green as they came near Patch. However, as the newly green wisps from the two casters met, it condensed into a fog. Patch could feel it becoming sticky and humid. She could also hear one of the two straining to ask, "Hello? Is someone there?"

 
Stobert said, "Sure, but first what's granola?"

Upon seeing Night Cap's response, the woman chuckled at Beathra's question. "Ah, 'neigh' indeed. Quite the opposite of trouble, things may have gotten far more interesting."

EB searched his pockets and pulled out a few bars, offering them to Stobert and the others.
"It's a grain, pretty bland but filling, and you can mix it with lots of stuff for flavor. These bars also have dried fruits and nuts in them."

With a low chuckle, Kage said.

 

”If you like that, you should try granola with fresh fruit and yogurt. Very refreshing.”

Beathra looked down at Night Cap and said, "Don't worry, she's helping us, we may as well drop the pretense." then, turning his attention to the mysterious newcomer, he added, "I suspect it won't matter for much longer."

 

"So, what do we call you?"

"Urgh...what do you mean?" The two people Patch rescued seemed to be struggling against something. Then she heard it--some sort of nearly imperceptible voice coming the domes she had lifted.

"You should try this Ju...oops, she probably can't hear me from here," Stobert said. "Hey, Shielnette, you should try this, too." Shielnette took one and took a small nibble, then her face lit up, "By the numbers! Is all ground food like this?" Upon the exclamations, a droid plodded over and asked, "I HEARD A COMMOTION, CITIZENS. IS EVERYTHING ADEQUATE?"

 
The woman responded to Beathra with, "You may call me the Lady of Games and Chance. Unless you have something else suitable."

Dee's hand came to her mouth and pinched her lips shut. Her mother was not dead - not in the slightest, yet still enough of her courtly training remain in Dee that it felt as if her mother had possessed her arm to prevent her from speaking what she was about to in response to the offer of names

“No problems. We were simply offering, as visitors here, a sample if the kind of food we have on the ground. The taste of granola and fruit provoked quite the reaction from those accustomed to such,” holding up the ‘spicy’ pyramid, “specially manufactured food.

 

You could call it a...cultural exchange.”

Beathra raised his eyebrows and said, "It is a little unwieldy, you must admit. Not to mention unmemorable! A good name is something that people can remember and say easily.

 

Though, in my native tongue, you might be called 'Cinniúint Mhuire', Lady Chance. Or perhaps just 'Cinniúint' for short."

Patch was unaffected by the the voice and moreover the green smog didn't affect her either. But the building cloud was clearly making hard for the two freed captives to breathe.

 
The droid proclaimed, "SUCH ACTIONS SEEM CIVIL BUT IT DOES NOT SEEM YOU HAVE AN ADEQUATE AMOUNT TO PROVIDE TO ALL THE CITIZENS."

 
Elizilah initially looked at Night Cap with shock but then, with curiosity. "How intriguing. It seems like I have plenty to learn about how things have developed on the ground. Though I guess that would explain the level of sapience I saw in his body language." Meanwhile, the woman pondered for a moment. "Cinniúint. Hmm.

Sounds agreeable enough. I'll go with that unless presented with reason not to."

"Oh! Of course." EB blinked at the droid. "I could try making some, but I'd need rolled oats, fruit, spices, melted marshmallows or sugar syrup to hold it together, a mixing bowl and spoon, pans to pour it into, and enough of everything for everyone..." He counted off the items on his fingers.

Beathra nodded.

 

"Now that we've settled on a name..." Here he gave a little bow, "I am Beathra, formerly of the Iron Woods. I had thought, at first, that you might be someone employed here, but all things considered, that seems unlikely. What brings you here, if I may ask?"

While part of his mind started mulling over the fact that this made it very clear that the OPDs Police droids had come from—or were somehow developed by somebody from—YPNR. Under his Cowl, Kage scowled at this mystery. Then its comment registered.

 

”Feed... everyone?” Kage couldn’t help a low chuckle. “I don’t think any of us planned for that. I always plan ahead, but i’m not that good.” Looking over to EB, he smiled under his Cowl. “That might be fun, though i don’t think we’re going to find any of that up here.

 

Hmm...

 

Have you really never tried any food but this special type?” Holding up the spicy pyramid again, Kage addressed his question to Stobert and Sheionette.

As the droid walked off, Stobert replied to Kage, "The food we have is the food we have. I mean, the stuff you brought seems like it's a 'special type' of food. By the way," Stobert pointed at the red pyramid Kage was holding. "You should eat that before you drop it. Don't want to waste food, plus I'd probably be the one to clean it up."

 
Cinniúint seemed amused by Beathra's question. "Well, after I was freed by Moscareina's scion, I was curious and followed her. While I think she's kinda dull, the things happen around her can be entertaining. When she arrived here, I noticed the outsider," nodding to Night Cap. "I couldn't ignore his presence so I came here."

"Moscareina's scion...." Beathra murmured thoughtfully, "though I can understand the fascination with Night Cap. He is remarkable and the world he comes from sounds... curious indeed."

 

After a moment's pause, he continued, "I am here with my compatriots to locate abducted children and return them to their families. I don't suppose you might know know anything that might aid us?"
