Did I say that? I must have been joking.

And you say you have no sense of humor, Nevermore. ;)

@  Nevermore : (27 February 2020 - 09:07 PM)

Gonzo, start a thread in the main "Transformers Discussion" forum with that information in the title instead.

@  Sabrblade : (27 February 2020 - 08:33 PM)

Gonzo, please don't go spoiling things like that in the chat box.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 February 2020 - 05:53 PM)

Neat.

@  Darth Gonzo : (27 February 2020 - 05:53 PM)

Tarn is in Cyberverse.

@  Benbot : (27 February 2020 - 10:24 AM)

I really don't like that guy. Show the toys, not your face. I'm tired of looking at him.

@  RCX : (27 February 2020 - 09:25 AM)

Toy Galaxy is excellent.

@  Benbot : (27 February 2020 - 09:03 AM)

I think you'll be save in Greenland.

@  CORVUS : (27 February 2020 - 01:12 AM)

Toy Galaxy is my favorite overall toy-related channel on YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (26 February 2020 - 11:29 PM)

Last year's coverage via Toy YouTubers was brilliant. However, since YouTube's new (unfortunately necessary) guidelines the companies barely invited any of them back, so all we get is super-popular collector's info.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 February 2020 - 09:19 PM)

If it weren't for Toy Galaxy's coverage video, I would not have known about the Defenders of the Earth figures. New toys of Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician? In 2020? I would have said you were smoking something strong.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:32 PM)

So the question is... has Madagascar closed down all its ports yet?

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:31 PM)

A couple that got infected attended a Carnival event with over 300 people in attendance.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

So the Corona virus keeps getting closer to where I live. Several confirmed cases in my federal state already.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 February 2020 - 02:20 PM)

Man, only having collector sites to get Toy Fair news from sucks. Did you know there is a 4" line of kids figures for the new Avengers game coming?

@  Dekafox : (26 February 2020 - 11:54 AM)

Since Omega already exists they could name it Auntie

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:07 AM)

Oh, and one last Titan,provided we can fudge things a bit to include a character from Transformers: Animated; how about something at least resembling TF:A Omega Supreme?

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:05 AM)

How about they find a way to make a mold they can use for both Broadside and Tidal Wave?

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 February 2020 - 02:13 AM)

Optimus Maximus, the mysterious titan of the Arisen, also Iaconus from Cyberverse.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 February 2020 - 01:33 PM)

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy....

@  Vexwing : (22 February 2020 - 03:26 AM)

I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 February 2020 - 08:47 PM)

@Dekafox, no DTP, but they DO have LILY Cat ;)

@  CORVUS : (21 February 2020 - 08:46 PM)

For me, it's "chocolate therapy".

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 08:32 PM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 06:42 PM)

Ahh. I remember watching Bubblegum Crisis 2020 or whatever.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 05:38 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (21 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@  Telly : (21 February 2020 - 02:31 PM)

harlock is on tubi as well. not dubbed though :(

@  Rhinox42 : (21 February 2020 - 01:19 PM)

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

Enjoy your castles, guys!

 

My decision to cancel mine was reinforced by two recent hospital stays for two different kids. :doh

 

On the bright side, I found a trade partner-my Geldor for his She-Ra. Now I will be able to give the wife She-Ra, Adora, and Catra (the latter two from Big Lots) for Christmas. :thumbsup

Well, it turns out my credit card from the original Castle Grayskull order was the cancelled card.  I was told last week they would cancel my order, update the card and place a new order.  I was worried until this afternoon.  Never have I been so happy to see a $250+ charge hit my card.   :D

Get your act together man!  :D

Sadly, as I am sure you know, this is someone having his act together.  I have seen quite a few posts at the org where people have waited too long and now can't cancel till they get the email.  :D

I had mine come up that I mine needed my card updated as well.  So I updated it via phone and then got a cancellation notice this morning.  :angry  So then I called to correct it again, so hopefully my order is reinstated  and does not remain canceled.

I'm sure the delay was due to you using tech and not talking to someone.  Strangely enough, when I got my cancellation confirmation, it came in after my new order confirmation came.

While I am obviously more Transformers collector, I have considered getting someone of the main characters (I know, a few years too late), and I wanted to know which Teela figure (Original or Battlegrounds) is best to purchase to go with the few figures I have (He-Man / Adam and Orko)?  Other than the pricing on the first Teela, which is a better toy?

Don't know how much the first one is running, but she is the best.  I wish I had an extra, so I could stick the blonde BG Teela head on that body.

Yeah Teela is still probably the best female figure they've done.  Lots of accessories and really nice sculpt.

I read somewhere else that there are problems with the ball joint for the head.  Is this the case?  Is this a major problem?

Some people said there was a slight bobble headedness to it, I didn't have any issues.

 

It was one of the only figures I bought 2 of.  Tri-klops was another, and both are highly desired.

In the same boat as Powered Convoy...on the 18th, I got an email saying that they would have trouble processing my order because I didn't update the card info in time (I updated it on the 16th or 17th). I immediately called and they cancelled my previous card associated with the order and (I gather) placed a new order after updating my credit card and address info. The phone rep was very helpful. I got the email the other day confirming that the 2012 order had been cancelled. So I've shot them an email and I'm hoping that they'll explain whether I should be expecting to get some kind of confirmation of the fixed order I made over the phone. 

 

What is WEIRD is that I already have a 2014 subscription made using the newer card. I guess there is some disconnect between the card associated with the Castle order and the one I used later to buy my subscription. I probably thought that when I updated my account info with the newer card when I bought the subscription, that would also help me with the existing order.

I doubt it, as much as I'd like that to be the case.  Took 16 days for this month's figures to arrive to me from them.

Yeah, I had the same thing happen to me.  According to the FAQ, the charge was just a test to see if the card still worked.  Actual billing will occur at the time of shipment.  So no drama; everything's fine.

Good to know.  The anxiety was low because I figured they would either take care of it or there would be information posted or emailed.  DR gets no love from me, but I think they understand how bad this could look if they screw this up for a lot of people.  They at least appear to be trying to make things work.
