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.

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

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

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

Uh... I'm comparing the Junkion silhouette to the stock photo of Wreck-Gar from the TFCC magazine cover... and... they're exactly the same. Same pose, etc. Even the head silhouette matches.


They're really not.

The right arm of the Club Cover Wreck-Gar is raised more. Plus, his bicep is a darker color versus the rest of his arm, and the reverse for the silhouetted guy. ...who has shades rather than individual eyes.

It's gotta be the visor-wearing faceplated junkion guy:



I wonder if they give him a very different color scheme, as in the 86 movie (and season 3) most Junkions had very similar color schemes.

TakaraTomy wouldn't be as concerned with very similar schemes, especially for an e-Hobby release. Hasbro would, but with how many white Autobot sports cars with red highlights we're getting in RTS and Generations (Drift, Red Alert, Jazz, Wheeljack), maybe they're not either.

I hope it's a re-do of Henkei Rodimus. I could use an extra that won't cost me $200.

If there's a remold involved, then Hasbro will definitely release it somewhere down the line. Look at Gentei Thrust and Dirge. That said, i'd definitely shell out for the 3 pack of Autobots. The Decepticons not so much. I really wish that Galvatron mold would just crap-out already.

And it looks like those are the correct color schemes for them and not a mock-up.
