I just think a Judge going on and Jury Tampering, trying to make the Jury think a sex taffiker is innocent is sickening. *won't say why he did that as that goes in P&R*

Thing about the US is... you can say that any time you want as much as you want. You're still going to get shot, but it might not be because you said that though.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 02:18 AM)

Can I just say that right now... I hate the USA?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

There are languages where the days are named for numbers and Sunday is "one". Like Arabic.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 01:31 AM)

Isn't it sort of a religious thing for Sunday to be the start of the week but most people just go with the first day they go to work for the week?

@  unitremover : (20 January 2018 - 01:02 AM)

I feel like I've known plenty of Americans who'd say Monday is the first day of the week.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

Personally Monday will always be the first day of the week for me. The notion that Sunday is somehow the first day of the week seems completely nonsensical to me.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

I'm fairly sure it is in Australia, but that tends to get blurred because of US influence.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:19 AM)

(It's Sunday here in the U.S.)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:18 AM)

Anyone here live in a country where Monday is considered the first day of the week?

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 04:54 PM)

What ya getting?

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 04:38 PM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 01:18 PM)

Buying a pre-built computer you should be okay.. It's just the individual parts that jumped huge in price.

@  Paladin : (17 January 2018 - 01:14 PM)

well all the idiots who invested in "bitcoin" will be selling theirs en masse to make ends meet so you might be able to find something cheap if you watch auctions.

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 12:59 PM)

Is now a good time to buy a computer? Or should I wait?

I finally got around to picking up Classics Onslaught today, and his siren repeats appropriately when the button is held down.

For all two of you who don't already have him or those of you with upsetting variant-completism, this may be of some interest. Sorry if this has been reported already.

I wonder if there's any way I can fix that problem myself... I just can't see myself spending 40$ Canadian on the same toy just for a longer siren sound. Not unless Hasbro announces a recall or something.

LV:

Is there any way to tell by looking at the package if it's the corrected version? I've already got mine, and I don't mind the chirp (if the traffic won't move, it's their problem.) It would be fun to know if the one I bought off Amazon for the toy drive is fixed or not.

Just push the red button until the siren sound comes on, and hold it down and see if the siren repeats. icon-fire.gif

As the gentlemen above say: press the button through thw window.

There's no callout or anything. I'm sure it's the same packaging as the original one, but I don't actually have the initial batch with which to compare.

DUH!!!! Just buy the new corrected one, then put the old screwed up version in the box & return it. That's what I did.

I can't believe how many people are dumb enough to say something like "I can't see myself buying a second Onslaught." Nobody has to buy 2 Onslaughts, just buy the good one & take the bad one back. It's not our fault they shipped out broken toys. Let the store send them back to Hasbro.

I remember my G1 Roadbuster's arm snapped off the 1st time I tried to transform him. We took it back to the store. IT WAS BROKEN! Your Onslaught is BROKEN! Take it back & get one that works. Double DUH!!!!

that's where you are wrong....it ain't broken, it's sound clip doesn't have a loop programmed into the soundchip. and besides the toy AIN'T BROKEN, so right back to the shelf it will go and some poor kid will buy it and they are stuck with the defective onslaught....and that ain't right

That's not really toy swapping as we usually define it. I mean, the toy WAS technically defective, and you're only returning a toy that we all gladly bought for months. And it's not as if someone can't test the damn thing in the package when they see it in the store, same as any other Onslaught.

This thread raises some interesting ethical questions.

As a happy medium, you might either intentionally break the defective toy and return it, or return it as pristine as possible with a note explaining the return should the store be unethical and put it back on the shelf and have someone else buy it.

Hopefully he returned it as he would a normal broken item though, and told the store it was broken when he returned it. If he just returned it "as new" and bought a new one, and it gets put back on the shelf...

Well if you tell them your toy had a defect they aren't supposed to put it back one the shelf.

Like I've returned several tfs to my local TRU and I've NEVER seen them on the shelf again because I told them there was a problem, but there are places that just don't care. Which is why we see energon downshifts in a movie blackout box.

And while I don't support it, what rip says isn't toy swapping really. Its the same exact toy with one difference most kids wouldn't even know about, but like I said I'd never do it, and it still feels a little underhanded.

I don't know... I like my one time chirp on Onslaught before he gives out a salvo of machinegun fire. It makes you think he's cruel enough to mockingly give a chirp before he fires and plows traffic out of the way when battling Autobot scum.

It does, a little, but I still take Walky's point. You wouldn't be profiting on the deal, you end up with the same toy you already had for the same price. You're not denying anyone an Onslaught, because they can still buy that same toy and judge for themselves if the defective noise makes a difference to them. The store's not being denied anything either, they've got the same item for sale when all is said and done.

The only really unfair scenario is if someone who was completely ignorant about the defect--but, had he known, would have opted for the new version--happens to buy a defective return and discovers the difference later, and is unable or unwilling to return it himself.
