A nerd.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Speaking of, what do you call someone who collects toys of the Marvel character The Collector?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:18 PM)

What about people who collect the "Die Hard" movies?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 July 2017 - 03:54 PM)

A lot of the die hard collectors don't need to be louder...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2017 - 03:22 PM)

@Nevermore Benbot means "amped" as in excited. I believe the term is shorthand for (a sound) amplifier.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Or is "shorthand" a synonym for "amputated"?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Is "amped" shorthand for "amputated"?

@  Benbot : (21 July 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I am amped! But I also have standards.

@  Fear or Courage : (21 July 2017 - 08:38 AM)

I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

...or maybe I'm the bitter one?!  Oh no.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:32 PM)

And I don't even mean that everyone should love it all. But it does seem to bring the angrier ones in from the lurking.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

It's these reveals that always remind me how exceptionally bitter a large portion of toy collectors are on other forums.

@  Sean Whitmore : (20 July 2017 - 07:06 PM)

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

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 04:15 PM)

:burn

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 04:15 PM)

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

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 04:14 PM)

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.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 04:14 PM)

I would LOVE to have ONE THING done correctly and promptly by the Social Security Administration

Hoist?

@  Glenn : (19 July 2017 - 11:53 AM)

oops tfsource not bbts

@  Glenn : (19 July 2017 - 11:52 AM)

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

@  Bass X0 : (19 July 2017 - 11:39 AM)

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

@  Noideaforaname : (19 July 2017 - 09:19 AM)

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

@  Bass X0 : (19 July 2017 - 08:33 AM)

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

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 July 2017 - 07:23 AM)

Sunlight is overrated.

@  MEDdMI : (19 July 2017 - 05:42 AM)

Your eyes will remain intact behind the sunglasses on top of a pile of ash.

@  Dekafox : (18 July 2017 - 10:27 PM)

What about Ray-Banz sunglasses?

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2017 - 07:45 PM)

"This sunscreen will protect even vampires from the sun! ....That'll be your soul, please."

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2017 - 07:44 PM)

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)

If only we were as progressive in Bea Arthur's day as we are now.

TOY ADDICT Pre-show store beginning Tuesday - Botcon 2010

The Toy Addict will have a pre-show store at the Dolphin Hotel beginning Tuesday evening (6/22). We will have an ENORMOUS selection of everything from G1 to the present, so make sure to plan on stopping by the room. More details and sample pictures to come. We will be posting some additional information in this thread once we check in. Flyers will be posted in the lobby where we find a board.

You are welcomed to bring by anything you may want to trade in or sell outright.

For those that like to be in the "know" with hours and other happenings with our event, you can follow our updates on Twitter as well...

We are sorting through some of our G1 combiner stuff this weekend, so I thought I would post a quick pic of our mountains of G1 Combiners. Should have plenty of complete ones and individual limbs for sale.

Couldn't squeeze the Monstructors (think we have around 4 of them from near complete to complete) and Predakings (have 2 or 3 complete ones, plus tons of individuals) in there, but we will have them available at Botcon and our room event.

Well that makes me feel better about the boxes of TFs I have lying around waiting to be sold. I may have to track you down on Tuesday about those color changers and Devastators.

Ok, here is some more of the stuff we are bringing. Not sure how much of this we can squeeze into our room event, but hopefully we can get everything we have into our 3 booths at the show.

I have a lot of stuff I want to get rid of: All my ARMADA, lots of BEAST WARS/MACHINES, ALTERNATORS, MASK figures. All transformers have paperwork/instructions and some have boxes(depth charge/rampage/air attack primal). What sort of stuff are you interested in so I can leave some stuff and bring others?

EDIT: I have some gobots too.

We will be open @ 10:30 am and close around 11:30 PM. Obviously if people are buying around closing time, we will not be kicking people out. Lots of Transformers to see today if you aren't in the customizing class, going on a tour, or hitting the parks. icon-hotrod.gif

FYI - As far as meal breaks go, you will see our sign out in the hall when we are open. It will not be out when we are away.

I don't know how I'm going to get two medium/large boxes into the dolphin and up to the room. I'm at a hotel at the all-star resort. I don't think I'm going to ride the bus with that kinda cargo. Is it possible to park at the dolphin temporarily to carry the boxes to your room?

Yes, you can give the key to the vallet and tell them you registering. Then you can run up with the boxes.
