"how expensive they were" Tell that to L.O.L. O.M.G. and the $129 Amazing Surprise (I mean I guess when it comes to the toy aisle Power Rangers isn't a juggernaut like L.O.L.)

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:18 PM)

I think the big reason we didn't see the actual combining Zords at retail was because of how expensive they were. It would cost $100 to get enough of them to make a Megazord, $160+ if you want the Ultrazord. Or parents could just get the dang Ultrazord for $40 even if it didn't combine.

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

Because they are "kids toys" not "collector toys"

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 03:27 PM)

1) I don't have Target. 2) can't go into my walmart. I'm surprised Hasbro won't sell the toys on Pulse

@  Bass X0 : (24 January 2020 - 02:43 PM)

I dreamt my phone was ringing and woke up to answer it.

@  Sabrblade : (24 January 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The Lightning Collection figures, the smaller normal-sized Beast Morphers Ranger/enemy/Beast-Bot figures, the role-play morpher and weapon toys, and the simplistic non-combining megazord toys have all been very easy to find at various Targets and Walmarts. It's only been the actual combining Beast Morphers zord toys (which are bizarrely being sold individually this time) that have been hard to find in stores.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:49 PM)

Thought I do question Hasbro's almost reluctance to have the toys available anywhere.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 01:44 PM)

i've been trying to sell mine for weeks...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I hadn't opened mine yet, but from what I've seen, the general agreement is that the Beast Morpher zords are much better than Bandais.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I'm guessing if they're going to do anything on the level of Legacy Zords, it's being discussed behind NDAs at Toy Fair

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 January 2020 - 10:38 AM)

Lightning Collection is good, and they're taking their sweet time on making Zords that are better than Bandai's Zords.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 10:34 AM)

So, what's the general PR fandom consensus of the Hasbro run of PR so far? I pretty much stepped out of the community after I got the Bandai Legacy zords I wanted.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 08:46 AM)

that would require someone to BUY Hasbro PR toys...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 07:17 AM)

Well hopefully see some cool PR stuff. Wish BBTS sold Hasbro PR toys.

@  fourteenwings : (24 January 2020 - 07:01 AM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 06:32 AM)

When is NY TF?

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:43 PM)

I don't know about Hasbro's general policy but I know everybody was on lockdown for Frozen II, which included both LEGO and Hasbro. Plus, I'm guessing everybody is holding off PR for NY Toy Fair? Overall, it's best to remember that Toy Fairs are for buyers, not fans.

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:41 PM)

LEGO has been doing this for ages, including sending cease and desists when outlets get leaked images.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:42 PM)

And then they ended up selling off the brand, so I guess I wasn't the only one.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:41 PM)

Last time a toy brand I followed tightened down on toy fair and all the invited guests posted glowing reviews of what they saw, I ended up being disappointed as heck.

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:34 PM)

JediNews UK basically said they got a walkthrough of Lego's showcase...but were legally bound to NOT talk about anything, much less take pics.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:24 PM)

I wondered why I had seen basically nothing newsworthy from the event

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:14 PM)

Word is that Hasbro and Lego have their UK Toy Fair stuff on MAJOR lockdown. Full NDAs and everything.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 09:28 PM)

Seeing people say the $0.99 + $20 shipping item is cheaper than the $19.99 + free shipping item and getting tons of likes for it... I just don't know anymore.

@  Telly : (23 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

@  Benbot : (22 January 2020 - 04:27 PM)

There will be no UBI, people will just live in a ditch while they celebrate owning the libs.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2020 - 03:24 PM)

In 50 years, retail will be dead because all stores are staffless fully automated operations controlled by Amazon. The UBI will be less than a fifth of what it actually costs to live after two decades of cuts and.a steadfast refusal to match inflation.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 January 2020 - 02:55 PM)

In fifty years retail will be a thing of the past through robots, printers and Universal Basic Income.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (21 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

All retail is basically the same.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2020 - 10:00 AM)

Walmart just needs to go bankrupt already.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:19 AM)

They didn't put the 35th anniversary stuff back out until after new year. I'm no retail expert, but I feel like having stock on the shelf is better than the back. Especially toys at christmas time.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Yeah, my local walmart took away the 35th anniversary endcap weeks before Christmas and left the Transformer section empty well past Christmas.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:44 AM)

Mine only has the 35th Anniversary Voyagers. A whole lot of them.

@  Telly : (19 January 2020 - 11:35 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 January 2020 - 08:53 PM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:23 AM)

Well there is an overpriced limited edition, but I don't want to pay that much money for it.

It's a work in progress, I think we had it up until just a couple of days ago. One of our guys is working on the site's back and frontends a little bit, and I think our host has been acting up a bit as well-- later in the evening, the site's been running rather slow, though today seemed a bit better.

Anyway, I'll see what I can find out.

I wonder how many here played the 5th Gameboy MM? The original content Stardroids were a pretty neat set of bosses, and some of the weapons had ideas never really seen in the NES titles. Of course, I always started with Mercury for the Grab Buster.

I'm right there with you, Indy. Been a fan of Megaman since Megaman 2, and by Megaman 3, I was pretty much sucked in. Although the numerous spin-offs other than X turned me off a bit. To be honest, the X series seemed to be getting a little too unwieldy in recent years, and anything other than Classic and X doesn't interest me in the slightest; Zero, for example, just confuses me. I mean, robot fairies?

As for style, give me the retro style any day. Megaman 7's style was never my preference, with the giant boots and gloves. There was no sense of proportion.

I'll have to try Megaman 9 once I get a system that can play it; I've heard good things, though from what I hear the difficulty really is insane, even compared to the first few titles.
Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

I do find that the X series went downhill after X5...

Though, going back and playing them, I find that X6 and X7 aren't nearly as bad as people think.

X6 is burdened with horrendous level design and a story that doesn't make sense, and X7 has gameplay issues, but neither are truly awful AVGN worthy games.

I liked X6, to be honest. X7 was a another story. Most complains floated around the new character, Axl mostly.

The GB Megaman games were pretty awesome in their ways. Seeing characters like Enker, Quint, Punk, Ballade and Terra in the fray was something differnt.

I lucked out and got a copy at Anime North (cartridge only) for $9.99 Canadian. Only beaten one boss so far, but I'm working on it.

Oh yeah. That was the first thing I did when I took over; I figured The Mega Man Network had too much history behind it to simply discard, and I really didn't like the "pick and choose" philosophy that Blue Bomber was ready to adopt instead.

Come to think of it, I don't even think that "Blue Bomber" ever really took off; not even the people on IRC wanted to switch channels.

We also merged with Atomic Fire; now all their assets are ours. icon-fire.gif

As far as the thread goes, I came in with MM1, and have been with it ever since.

I have not yet beaten MM9, mainly for two reasons:

1) The archaic save system, which is near-useless on the Wily levels. There's such a thing as being too loyal to the oldschool, I think, and that is it.

2) It took over a decade for us to move past 8; I figure there's no need to rush just yet.

Agreeable. I just use the Ultimate Armor to start with in X6. I've beaten the game without it, but it really fixes a lot of those level and balance issues.

X7 is a decent game, but bad by Mega Man standards. I still have mine in shrink wrap after buying it for under ten bucks. Prior, I'd played it on rentals and the like.

X8, I love (except the vehicle stages). To me, this is what an arcade Mega Man X game would be like. And given I grew up on Contra and the like, that's fine by me. Plus, Axl is awesome in it; that should have been his debut game, as a playable character if nothing else.

On this note, I would love another Command Mission. Particularly if it went more along the lines of what the title sounds like, where perhaps you got to actually "command" a group of Maverick Hunters. Bring back Douglas, Lifesaver, add more Hunters. Maybe work in something like the liberation missions from Battle Network 5. I'd be all over that.

I didn't enjoy X8 or Command Mission at all. I actually sold them because I didn't like them, a first for me with Megaman games (I usually keep them regardless of quality just because they're Megaman games).


I think I would quite like a Megaman game done in the 2D Castlevania and Metroid games where you have a huge map to explore rather than individual levels.

Well, only a select few staff were retained... just Heatman and Tabby, I think. I think IHZ still drops in bits via Heatman, so he's not exactly out of the picture entirely, but he's not exactly hobnobbing with us and rubbing elbows, if you get my drift.
