SDCC toy reveals make adults happy by telling them what they can get eventually. Kids don't care what they can get eventually, you make them happy by getting them whatever's available now.

@  Jalaguy : (20 July 2017 - 06:10 PM)

They exist, they just don't show them at SDCC because they assume that the adult fanbase doesn't care about them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 06:03 PM)

On SDCC stuff...I'm disappointed, but not surprised, at the lack of the actual KIDS toys among all the toys for us old men

SSA response? "How would we know to un enroll you if you don't tell us?"

I'm supposed to un-enrolled in Medicare at the end of the month (36 months post-transplant), but I'm getting a bill for next quarter's coverage.

Does anyone else find Hoist's smile on that MP ad for BBTS slightly disturbing?

In to the darkness, snuffing out the light, fighting for the things you know aren't right

Snuff out the light, claim your right, to a world of darkness!

Then we must block it out, just like Mr. Burns had foretold.

Sunlight is overrated.

What about Ray-Banz sunglasses?

Wouldn't a blessing by Satan pretty much be a curse anyway?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 July 2017 - 06:01 PM)

isn't "Blessed by Satan" an oxymoron?

@  Dracula : (18 July 2017 - 05:11 PM)

basically the sunscreen has to be blessed by satan.

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2017 - 05:07 PM)

@Dracula what SPF do you nees to not get turned into dust in the sun?

@  Dracula : (18 July 2017 - 04:42 PM)

That's typical summers for where I live. bleh

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

Isn't it fun when it's so humid, it feels like your eyeballs are sweating?

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2017 - 03:34 PM)

'Cept tougher and, as I've mentioned, more fun. :)

@  D.M : (18 July 2017 - 09:55 AM)

Like, it would basically be the female version of the 1st doctor. :)

@  D.M : (18 July 2017 - 09:54 AM)

I wasn't starting a flame war. That's a real scientific term for natural occuriring sex change. ;) As for Anne Ramsey like actress - would make the show lot more fun. :p

@  Dracula : (18 July 2017 - 09:42 AM)

Let's please not continue this line of discussion. We obviously aren't mature enough to do so.

@  2017 : (18 July 2017 - 09:41 AM)

Thanks mods.

@  Broadside : (18 July 2017 - 08:48 AM)

Oh, for god's sake.

@  D.M : (18 July 2017 - 08:28 AM)

Shit's hitting the fan!

@  2017 : (18 July 2017 - 08:22 AM)

What are you trying to say, Bass?

@  Bass X0 : (18 July 2017 - 08:21 AM)

That is a very 2017 attitude to have.

@  2017 : (18 July 2017 - 08:14 AM)

Um...no. Just call them by the gender they present as, please.

@  D.M : (18 July 2017 - 07:35 AM)

Let's please not try to stir up a flame war in the shoutbox, especially not over sensitive issues like gender.

@  Rycochet : (18 July 2017 - 07:16 AM)

I think the only thing that upsets me about the change of Doctors is no more Michelle Gomez, she was magnificent in the role.

@  Rycochet : (18 July 2017 - 07:15 AM)

Where was this outrage when (the fantastic) Michelle Gomez took over the role of the Master?

@  Pennpenn : (18 July 2017 - 04:29 AM)

Why did that double post?

@  Pennpenn : (18 July 2017 - 04:29 AM)

From what I understand (which could be wrong, or right based on some things but not others) is that Gallifreyans are agender and just appear as/present as particular genders because reasons. Kinda like Transformers.

Need advice on Chevy Aveo Swerve

Hoping for some advice as you guys are pretty level-headed and fair.

I did a trade with a TFW board member in Canada for a the Chevy Aveo Swerve. Just got the item and the leg fell right off. It looks like the factory installed one of the pins in the legs at an angle so it took a chunk out of the plastic and my hopes for fixing it are slim. The board member is willing to let me ship my Swerve back to him and send me his but I'd feel bad because it's not his fault as the item was MISB. What should I do?

1) Does anybody here have a spare right leg for Swerve?

2) Should I just write it up as a loss? Or return the item?

3) If I keep it should I just glue it back together as a display item?

I'll post pictures when I get home in case somebody can suggest a way to fix it.

Pic 1 is pin. It was forced in at an angle so the hole is double the size now.


Pic 2 is where the pin should go. As you can see, the pin was forced in at an angle and took out a chunk. I'm afraid that if I straighten the pin and force it in the hole will crack completely. Or if it doesn't crack right away, it'll crack later with repeat transformation.

If I were you, I'd post some pics, and let some of our talented customisers see if they can give you any pointers.

And while it's an extremely generous affair of your Canadian friend, you're right, it doesn't seem fair for him to get a broken one out of this.

He's become beyond rare, but also turns out to be worth each and every penny you pay for him. I love this figure, such a shame he wasn't mass produced.

Everyone keep an eye and ear open -- when I got mine last week, the reps said there were plans for similar mall promos here in the US before all of the bankruptcy problems, and while they didn't know for sure either way, those may eventually still happen...

Y'see, even the Editor of the Enquirer has to draw the pun line somewhere, and you just obliterated that line with a big huge cannon filled with vast amounts of gunpowder.

Yikes!!!!!!!!


With pics, it should be helpful for you to get some accurate advice. Looks salvagable to me, but I'll leave it for those more knowledgable than me. (IE Every customiser)
