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.

@  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.

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.

Yes, because they're hosted by the same company that hosts 8kun, Gab, Infowars and Stormfront. Rob Monster, who owns Epik is pretty much a Neo Nazi, there is nothing he will not host, provided there's no repeal of laws that prevent him from being held liable like the trump admin were gunning for, of course.

So, which member of the Trump family do you think will be the first to appear on Dancing with the Stars or the Masked Singer in the hopes of softening their image? I bet it'll be Don Jr, hoping that being a reality TV star will make his father actually love him.

I dunno, Parler is back up. I can't see him staying quiet for too long.

 

Parler's website is back, but there's no return of the app. That's going to be a taller order for them, and with no app, I don't see Trump being to keen on participating.

If Trump starts actively using Parler, I'm certain it will be revealed within a year they're paying him a seven figure sum to do so to make it worth his while.

So um...weird question.

 

Has anyone had any eyes of Barron since he caught COVID? Can't help but notice in all the pictures of Twitler fleeing D.C., Barron is conspicuously absent. I just have this mental image of Biden walking around the Residence and realizing Barron's still there.

It'll be especially infuriating when the media covers his Parler posts because they're addicted to the ratings.  Not only will it give Trump the attention he desperately wants, they'll also be normalizing a far-right platform.

I would like to imagine that the rioters were in their jail cells, sitting on their bunk beds, eagerly waiting for their names to be called in the final batch of pardons, fully convinced Trump would save them. Then when the list was released and they weren't on it, they watched Trump board the Marine One for the last time, a wave of shock and horror washed over their face as they finally realize that Trump was abandoned them and he was never there for them even though they were the most obedient of followers. They jump out of their ragged bed and desperately reached through the bars of their cell and screamed "I believed in you!". The camera then pans down the hall with the sounds of a metal door slamming, a lock turning and the maniacal laugher of a guard as it fades to black.

End scene! 😌

At least they realized they were duped and exploited. Epiphanies of self are hard to achieve. How many of them STILL refuse to accept reality and understand that 1.) it's all over, and 2.) they were taken for a ride?

Indeed. If folks are finally starting to wake up to things, they shouldn't be harassed for daring to admit they were wrong.

 

HOWEVER, that's not a blanket pardon to allow those people back into your lives.

HA! Nope! Trust has to be earned, and is significantly harder to do the second time 'round. The next epiphany will come in a few years time when they realize just HOW MUCH they hugged their lives over.

 

This one will happen somewhat quicker for a lot of the insurrectionists whom are now, or will shortly be, in jail. Long terms in hellholes tend to leave time for introspection.

Proud Boys ditch Trump. They caled him a traitor and weak and told their followers to no longer go to his rallies. That is a plus to diminish his power base.

You'd think that, but no.  Most of the time in prison is spent looking at the next 2 minutes and not a second further.  The entirety of the prison experience can be summed as the expression, "the folly of short term thinking".  

 

They'll release having not learned anything and find that the world has moved on without them.

Let them be humbled by their mistakes. Let them be reminded of their mistakes so they learn not to do them again. They will earn their repentance by being silent and being forgotten by the public. If they speak up again, we will remind them.
