@  Sabrblade : (16 April 2021 - 07:04 PM)

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)

Random like "Why does god allow terrible things?" or random like "You can see them too?!?"?

@  Echowarrior : (16 April 2021 - 07:36 AM)

And yet, I still have to deal with random idiots on the street asking me random questions.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 April 2021 - 04:04 PM)

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.

@  tigerhawk : (14 April 2021 - 01:20 AM)

Sure he's a peeping tom but every single Scottish person does it!

@  tigerhawk : (13 April 2021 - 10:15 AM)

I'd vote for Groundskeeper Wullie.

@  Donocropolis : (13 April 2021 - 07:25 AM)

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.

@  tigerhawk : (12 April 2021 - 04:21 AM)

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.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 April 2021 - 05:06 AM)

It is a very impressive display of robotics though.

@  tigerhawk : (10 April 2021 - 04:52 AM)

What were they thinking with that self transforming Optimus? should have been another crowd funder for that price.

@  tigerhawk : (08 April 2021 - 03:33 PM)

I wish they'd rerelease Earthrise Ramjet and Dirge.

Even better, lead them on with lyrics from the classic animated movie Anastasia. Specifically "In the Dark of the Night". See how long it takes them.

Eric Trump: We have a MASSIVE $25M goal coming up & my father needs your help. Can we count on you? Donate NOW for a 5X-MATCH:

1:07PM

 

 

You hit the jackpot again! Pres. Trump unlocked an End-of-Month 5X MATCH for you ONLY! Offer expires at MIDNIGHT. Claim NOW.

6:35PM

 

 

I hit the jackpot again! Can you believe it?

 

Today was the lightest day ever, but that doesn't mean there's nothing to analyze. It looks like Eric Trump types exactly like whoever's writing all the rest of these. So is that not really him, or, has it all been him all along?

Why didn't you use your 5X-MATCH? Pres Trump needs you & now he's upping the stakes. ALL GIFTS 6X-MATCHED for 1 HOUR! Donate NOW:

11:02AM

 

CONGRATS! You won the End of Month 600% MATCH upgrade! For you, only! Pres. Trump will look for your name in 1 HOUR. Claim NOW:

1:03PM

 

Pres Trump noticed you ignored his text. Your name's still MISSING on the End of Month list. Donate in NEXT HOUR for a 6X-MATCH:

5:53PM

 

You didn't reply to our texts. Pres Trump chose a select group for an End Of Month 6X-Match. You're the last 1 remaining! Don't wait! Donate NOW:

7:20PM

 

Pres Trump: 1 DAY LEFT & still short! I'm doing something NEVER DONE BEFORE to hit our Monthly goal. FOR 1 HOUR ALL GIFTS 7X-MATCHED! Donate:

9:07PM

 

 

So I had a 6X-MATCH for 1 HOUR multiple hours today, and now I have a 7X-MATCH. I wonder how high it's going to go.

 

They do this guilt trip stuff all the time. They're always telling me how Trump's looking for my name and he's disappointed that he doesn't see it. Catholic school was not this pushy.

See, what I'm getting from this is the longer you hold out and don't give them money, the higher the match will go, so the obvious course to maximise the amount is for absolutely everyone to wait until the day before the election to donate.

The President chose just 10 supporters to receive a 600%-MATCH extension & YOU made the list! Offer expires in 1 HOUR. Claim NOW:

10:10AM

 

Eric Trump: Your 600%-Match EXTENSION is still available. You have 1 MORE HOUR to step up before I send my father the donor list. Donate NOW:

1:17PM

 

Pres. Trump: WOW! You won the Daily Trump 600% MATCH! Only my most patriotic supporters qualify. Valid for 1 hour. Claim NOW:

2:35PM

 

Pres Trump wanted to make sure you saw his invite to have dinner with him. He asked us to text you again just in case. Donate in next HOUR & WIN:

5:16PM

 

Pres. Trump: I want YOU to have dinner with me in New York. Flight & hotel covered. You can even bring a guest. Donate & win NOW:

7:02PM

 

Pres. Trump extended your End of Month 600%-MATCH! He didn't choose randomly. He chose YOU for a reason. 2 HOURS LEFT. Donate:

9:17PM

 

 

I am the chosen one.

 

Here you can see two monthly features I've been dealing with: the "We've extended your End of Month 600%-MATCH after we swore it was your last chance" and the "Come have dinner with me" offers.

 

The dinner invitation intrigues me. On one hand, winning a contest to meet the president might actually be a quicker way to get a covid test than trying to wait in line around here. Florida's collapsing, yo. On the other hand, I'm not aware of anyone ever winning this thing. You'd think some dude would have bragged on 4chan by now but as far as I can tell it has never happened. It doesn't seem to be real.

 

Also, isn't it amazing that right as my second 1 HOUR End of Month 600%-MATCH extension expires, I just happen to win the daily 600%-MATCH? What luck.
