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.

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)

@  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.

BotCon toys weren't exactly a convenient way to expand your collection, though.


And Hasbro pulse exclusives aren't a convenient way to expand your collection if you live outside the US.

This sort of thing is exactly one of the things I always hoped Generations Selects would allow Hasbro to do: releasing stuff that never got a domestic release before due to not fitting the retail model. Breakdown and the Jet Vehicon were Prime figures I always really wanted, but just never could devote the cash for them. So this release is just fantastic, especially at less than the new cost for two modern deluxes. And while I don't really like that Megatron deco, the Arms Microns were tempting enough to get me to at least place an order. I might cancel it later if I decide I don't really want them that much, but I'm betting I'll ultimately keep the order.

 

I'd love to see this sort of thing expand further. A domestic release of Animated Blackout and Wingblade Optimus Prime would be amazing. Or the Micron Legend deco for Tidal Wave. Lots of stuff that could be great if Hasbro's willing to expand their direct online offerings.

 

On a side note, I'm really tempted to get a few more Jet Vehicons to go with my 5 regular Vehicons. I was tempted to ask if anyone wanted to buy some Breakdowns until I realized I can only order two. So I guess I'll go the other way. Anyone ordering a set just for Breakdown who would want to unload the Vehicon?

Got Breakdown and Vehicon preordered. Don't care about Megatron Darkness, er, "Hades Megatron".
 
Of all the Takara-only Prime Megatrons to choose from, they had to go and pick the ugliest, most gaudy one of them all.
 
Final Battle Megatron would have been more ideal.

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.

I have a great Cheetimus custom painted Megatron and, as I stated earlier, I have Botcon Megatron out of the Breakdown mold and several Jet Vehicons, so I’ll be passing in all 3 of these. Very cool though.

I always thought that Megatron looked quite sharp. Not as good as the one with the red forearm, but the chrome, dark gray, and clear purple was really fetching.

Yes but Prime did have a sequel series which hasn't been off the air too long overall. It may not have been what you wanted, but toys of some of the characters were still coming onto the shelves for years yet afterwards.

 

But less argumentatively this was a good way to start getting some Prime love back to collectors. Pulse does need to actually open things up to other markets or start a comparative experience through a European website. Regardless there is always going to be hurdles to jump. The Joe fan base is about ready to kill whoever made exclusivity deals with Target with how they have handled things as of late.

Prime is my favourite TF show by a wide margin. Somehow it never occurred to me that it would eventually be eligible for anniversary celebrations.

I'd rather see new Generations-style toys based on those characters than rereleases of toys I already have and which... are less good than moderns Gens toys probably? But I guess it's all good.

Time for a new Knock Out at least given his big win.

Changed my mind and ordered this set after I opened my BotCon Cybertron’s Most Wanted set and examined my Megatron.  I knew it was a cool figure, but I never transformed it until this morning.  Now I need to dig out my Dread Pirate Crew.

and i also wanna see Hasbro do more like these, more Japan exclusive molds released for a wider audience. The Go Combiners, X9 Jaguar, the Beast Wars Neo Maximals, etc.

lol If that isn't a debatable topic, I don't know what is

Personally I appreciate Knock Out not doing fake vehicle mode bits and still being a relatively solid toy, flat midsection aside

Airachnid and Smokescreen could really, really use better toys though
