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.

In MY dream, everyone at CPAC is nearly drowned in an avalanche of strawberry milkshake, before the doors finally burst open and they are arrested for all their various crimes, with their mugshots looking all sticky and ridiculous. Then usually some kind of giant cosmic wolf fights a bear while the tongue of a wooden chameleon shouts WIZARDS SHOULD KNOW BETTER.


My dreams are weird.

Countersuit against the eventual charge that drags on for 5 years until the statute of limtations expires on much of his financial crime, and he'll settle for a relatively paltry amount.

Oh I mean on the eventual charges, the longer he drags it out, the lower the total amount he will pay will end up being. Statutes of limitations are ****ed up, massive fraud, tax evasion, sexual assault shouldn't be things you get a pass on because you're wealthy enough to block investigations.

Blame the gays for hurricanes and then actually do this. And since this is the age of "no more hugs to give about hiding it" you have to ask yourself how long they've been doing this.

Time for me to quote Noam Chomsky's 2017 statements again.

 

 

Has there ever been an organization in human history that is dedicated, with such commitment, to the destruction of organized human life on Earth?” he asked the audience at a Democracy Now! event.

 
“Not that I’m aware of. Is the Republican organization - I hesitate to call it a party - committed to that? Overwhelmingly. There isn’t even any question about it.”
 
Chomsky argued that America was isolating itself as one of the only countries not to be engaging in efforts to tackle climate change.
 
“So there’s the whole world on one side, literally, at least trying to do something or other, not enough maybe, although some places are going pretty far, like Denmark, couple of others; and on the other side, in splendid isolation, is the country led by the most dangerous organization in human history, which is saying, ‘We’re not part of this. In fact, we’re going to try to undermine it.’

"Whoa, it's been upgraded to stank. Just last week it was only stink. Stonk can't be far away." - Strong Bad

He's here. I wonder who he's going to announce as his running mate.

 

"Do you miss me yet?"

 

"It is far from being over."

 

I could probably stop there since that's obviously going to be the theme of the whole speech. *runs for the exits*

 

Fine.

 

Looong segment on immigration. It's possibly not a coincidence that this was his original signature issue.

 

Now a long segment about getting kids back to school. Now the covid vaccines.

 

Foreign policy.

 

*blinks twice*

 

I'll give him this. He had CPAC cheering for the idea of not fighting endless wars anymore. None of those wars actually ended on his watch but hey, baby steps.

 

Oh no.

 

Now he's defining "Trumpism".

 

Spontaneous "We love you" audience chant.

 

He's about to talk about fair elections.

 

Policy proposals:

  1. 1 election day. So no early voting anymore. No mass mail in voting.
  2. Voter ID.
  3. Universal signature matching.
  4. Citizenship confirmation.
  5. Chain of custody protections for every ballot.

He's now calling for Republicans to sanction Big Tech at the state level.

 

Now calling out his least favorite congressional Republicans by name.

He does understand that he's not actually the president right now, right? Cause it frankly sounds exactly like his rallies when he was president.

He doesn't hold an elected office, but he's definitely the leader of the GOP.

Well he actually didn't say it, but it was very much a 'saying it but not saying it' thing. He promised to retake the House and Senate, and then a Republican will triumphantly return to the White House, "and I wonder who that will be."

He did say the US has a very sick and corrupt electoral process which is absolutely true...but decidedly not for the reason he thinks.
