It's only murder and that is all, why should I feel the way I do...

@  Rufus : (25 January 2021 - 01:37 PM)

It's only murder if it comes from the Murder region of France, otherwise it's just suspiciously deceased.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 January 2021 - 09:17 AM)

It's only murder if they find the body, otherwise it's just a missing persons case.

@  Telly : (24 January 2021 - 02:31 AM)

so light yagami is a BAD role model? but ive already got a death note...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 11:43 PM)

Do you always model proper behavior after anime characters?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 January 2021 - 06:34 PM)

Don't forget Yu-Gi-Oh and the Millennium items.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 January 2021 - 02:51 PM)

There was a five season anime with wearing relics as the premise.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 01:16 PM)

You don't wear relics, you enshrine them.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 06:23 PM)

Wrong holey... and probably the wrong way to dress too.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2021 - 06:09 PM)

If your underwear is old and holy, it is considered a relic and should be protected with your life.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 02:04 PM)

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

Target's better-

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

@  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.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 09:50 PM)

At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 05:36 PM)

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

I don't know exactly what it is, but that Ratchet is doing very little for me.

 

I think it's at least partly knee-jerk defiance at the world trying once again to sell me a green Arcee medic.

I dunno why, but I kept thinking during the rumours that Ratchet would be coming with FLATline, which would have been much more interesting.

Ah well, I'm sure I'd be able to unload Green Acres to someone...

Looks nice but I am fed up of all these exclusives because:
1. They cost more
2. Harder to get a hold of, good example Siege Skywarp, he going for silly prices
3. They appear to be exclusive to the US only
 
So, yeah, I am getting fed up of all these exclusives all of a sudden! My local Supermarket barely stocks anything TF related, the nearby toy shop is SO slow about getting different TFs in, like they been about for months when they finally show up and mostly linger on the shelves for ages, last I checked they still had a Siege Starscream thou lockdown didn't help matters, its like Hasbro is forgetting there is a much larger fan base beyond the US shores.


I can't speak for other countries, and I'm not sure where you are from (I'm on mobile if your location is listed) but these exclusives tend to be the same price as normal figures.

Siege Skywarp was available for about 3 months at Amazon USA before selling out and longer at Amazon Canada (I know as I got some there at one point).

All I want now from the Botropolis pack is a set of Earthrise Cliffjumpers with Speedbot's head, painted up as Speedbot and Mototron. (And if they're feeling generous, Aerobot. And if they really really love me, they'll give him police lights as Prowl-Bot/Fire-Bot/Cop-Bot/Taxi-Bot.)

It nourishes everything, yet itself feeds upon destruction. We claim to control it, but does it not perhaps cultivate us as a source of food? May it not be that all wood grows so that it can be set ablaze, and that men and women are born to kindle fires?"

I agree, but at the same time; as long as there's no official Flatline, I can continue to feel I didn't make a bad choice in buying T30 Trailcutter.

So looking up the other planets. I'm guessing.

Micron: Micromasters
Dominus: Headmasters/Targetmasters
Biosfera: Beasts
Botopolis: Go-go-gobots. Or just straight up gobots.

Looking at Micron, it’s a head with a mini bot in front. Could it finally be Star Saber? I’m sure it’s just wishful thinking. I’m guessing it’s gonna be a micromaster repaint pack. Maybe this is the leaked headmaster assortment?
Dominus gives me a evil/gladiator type vibe from the logo.
Biosfera shows a paw, so definitely animals. Maybe finally a Deathsaurus? Beast Wars that aren’t on the main leaked list?
Botopolis looks like a city. Metrotitan? Black Zarak? Maybe more Greasepit and Airwaves remolds w/ micro master partners?

I have poked at a couple of my friends who aren't as in love as I am when it comes to WFC/Earthrise.    I've got other versions of a lot of these guys, but I like these ones a bunch more than my Universe 2.0 editions - and of course, there's a much bigger fanbase now than there probably was before.

 

This is going to be the widest-release Lifeline/Paradron Medic ever - I remember reading about SuperLink Ariel Paradron-type back in the day but the price never seemed quite right.  (And I got TFCC Lifeline, but not everybody is part of the online community or the fan clubs.)

 

A "Classic" Ratchet Earth Mode was last widely at US retail, when, Universe 2.0 around 2009?  And he was pretty scarce back then too.  Since then we've had the MP (import), Unite Warriors (import), Combiner Wars (custom class), and stuff generally not accessible to the general public.  I assume it's going to be a huge hit - I mean, it's a 1984 guy, you can't go wrong with those - and it's one that has historically been in somewhat short supply in the US post-post-G1 market.

 

(Yes there's Siege Ratchet but if I believe the people who tell me these things, he was overly tough to come by.  I found mine but then stopped going to Walgreenses because flu season.)

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.
