@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:59 PM)

I've barely used them over the years, so I'm sure they won't miss me, but I'm done too. Thankfully Pulse put up the Seacons today.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:58 PM)

i didnt complete it, which is why this is confusing and pi$$ing me off. theres no record of it in my order history. i emailed them about it, so we will see what happens. either way, i think im done using them after this

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

Either we're both unlucky or they're trying to force payment now for these takaratomy mall exclusives.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I asked them to kindly undo that and I got a sternly worded email about how I should use their website right.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

Yeah, if you completed the order, they charged you the money now. Mine said stack before I finished checking out. I only noticed I was charged because of Paypal.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:53 PM)

i wasnt even wanting to pay now. i was going to add them to my stack but i didnt get the chance after i was done setting up paypal

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:53 PM)

If you haven't officially placed the order, I don't think so? Although, I had to request a cancellation with them last week because their system changed details about my order after I placed it, so I don't exactly trust them.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:51 PM)

so im not actually being charged then?

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:48 PM)

So, if you were one click away from purchasing, then they probably did the pre-authorization already. The next click will charge you the money now.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:47 PM)

TFsource charges upfront for regular pre-orders.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i was considering buying the upcoming seacons from tfsource. i had them in my cart and was on the checkout page. i set up a credit card through paypal, and before i even hit the "place order" button, i got a text saying that a charge or hold was placed on my card! is this normal? is it just checking to see if i have the money? why did it do it before i even placed the order??

So whenever he addresses his troops, he keeps cracking jokes. Sometimes these jokes are about the blunders he himself had made in his speech the previous day.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 01:01 PM)

At the moment, I'm blessed with a pretty nice superior. He's got a military background, but he takes an oddly entertaining approach to it. Imagine a stand-up comedian who accidentally enlisted as a drill sergeant.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:54 PM)

Another type of everyday absurdity: Imagine you're leaving your workplace for your lunchbreak. Upon your return, you discover that your workplace has been cordened and/or gated off during your break, with "construction site" warning signs everywhere. You go to your superior and tell him: "I can no longer access my workplace! Why is there suddenly a construction site?" Your superior takes a surpised look and says: "I don't know, first time I see this." You figure: "Must be a Tuesday, then."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:51 PM)

It's kind of surreal, really.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:50 PM)

They agree that things are less than ideal, but they acknowledge that their scope of making decisions is limited. Oddly, I keep getting that regardless of how high up the chain of command I bother people.

What's it like to have management that's willing to listen to things they don't want to hear? I've never seen that.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:41 AM)

I manage to argue within the company's own internal logic and point out the flaws, shortcomings and discrepancies between "official company policy" and "everyday company reality".

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:40 AM)

Many of my coworkers are scared to even talk to managers. I often discuss company matters with them I disagree with, and it isn't a rare occurrence that they say "yeah, you're right..."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:38 AM)

I know how to watch my tone, and I prefer to keep things straightforward and factual, never to attack the person, always the problem itself.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:37 AM)

The good thing for me is ever since a minor hiccup many years ago when I was still non-permanent, I've always managed to along just fine with my various superiors (I've been through over a dozen already). And that's despite my outspokenness, my blunt honesty and my oftentimes harsh criticism.

Amazon in the US has pretty good benefits, though, and even the temp workers had forty hours a week to start with. Even with minimum wage, that's pretty good pay.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Oh, the turnover rates are high here as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Amazon.com and .ca, on the other hand, can be pretty terrible. I know from your squawkbox posts that you guys have your issues with Amazon over there, although you're lucky to have stronger government regulations and a union there. I gather the warehouse workers in the USA and Canada have it pretty crappy, with very high turnover, close to minimum wage pay, and no unions

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:38 PM)

Amazon.de doesn't really have the same issue. I've ordered from them (and UK, FR, IT and JP) several times, and their packaging is much better

@  Nevermore : (17 October 2019 - 05:22 PM)

I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

@  Telly : (16 October 2019 - 10:48 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

Looks like the Master of the Universe aided in crashing the 'Spark, so it's time for a fresh start.

Don't forget to set your alarms for the 15th and the upcoming Burger King Randor, Skeletor re-release and ill-Teela.

Oh, and has anyone seen leaked pics of Evil-Lyn yet?

I have seen one of them, but I hear that the one I have seen may have been retouched to look less yellow.

I figure, since they're about making the new versions close to the old, we'll get yellow first with a goth 200X version down the road as an extra figure.

I saw her on Toyark yesterday before the image was yanked.

She definitely looks really old school. Kind of ugly yet beautiful in a 1980's punk warrior kind of way. I am disappointed her outfit wasn't modified to resemble her card art more in the waist area, as it's just a straight redeco of Teela's (I'm not surprised, obviously, by this though).

She's all Teela with a new head and accessories.

Long magic staff and blue dagger. Looks a lot like the old toy. Flat nose like the 2002 cartoon. The weapons are influenced by 2002 (the staff's length and the dagger). Everything else is vintage 1982.

Like I said, the image was on the Toyark before, but they moved it.

We don't condone posting images directly scanned from Toyfare on the boards, so we cannot upload the image.

Mattycollector will be releasing images of her sooner than later.

You also might want to check out Matty's Facebook, it was posted their a few times and I'm sure a few more before they give up deleting posts. That is if they even bother.

Heh - sure 'nuff. Someone has a link posted to a pic. Well - she's a buy. The colors work well and even the leafy bajingo-guard part of Teela's outfit works ok on her. Still would prefer not to have the fuzzy boots though.

I guess you'd think if they planned on this all along they could've at least molded a separate armor piece for her abdomen. Just snapping in a different piece there would've made a big difference. That being said - they're sticking to the classic theme and that would mean just repainting Teela which is what they did. Maybe the Goth version can have a different armor piece.

If they do the black & purple 2002 version, I really hope they go all out with a new leotard, boots, and skirt. Or at least the skirt/cape & leotard.

Not a hundred percent sure but the normal wave in TRU's computers had them listed at $19.99. So unless somethings changed, that should be how much it'll be on Matty.

Hope they do the 2002 one at some point, as I have no love for the racist jaundice victim.

of course, if they don't, I was lucky enough to GET a 2002 Evil Lyn, but still, I feel her exclusion would be a grave injustice in this line, especially after Mattel teased her.

I may be in the minority here, but I'm really looking forward to Randor. I always liked the look of the original figure (I never owned it), and I think the new one just improves on him.

Hopefully they give us a 2002 fully armored version later on too.

Green Goddess is very unexciting, especially after the announcement of Evil-Lyn - giving us 3 of this figure with just a couple parts different.

I predict Green Goddess to be a huge sitter, only having her sales increased in case people who buy Skeletor buy her just because.
