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

So, yeah. Quick question. Initially, I wasn't interested in THS Prime. But I looked at my Revoltechs today and realized....is he the same size as them?

So, does anyone have both? If there's a picture to compare, I'd like it. If he's the same size, I'd love a transforming Prime to interact with the other TF revoltechs/have wacky crossovers.

I do, I think they're about equal (THS might actually be shorter). If I can root up my Revoltech Prime I'll take some pictures (assuming no one gets to it before me).

But, if you're unsure if you want THS Prime, I can tell you it's well worth the money. It's one of the most amazing pieces of Transformer engineering I've ever seen. It's almost a Masterpiece level figure at barely a fraction of the size.

*glances in the box* Actually... no, and that's worrying me. 'cause he was in the B-Squad box (figures not currently on display) and I can't exactly remember what is in there. There may be some sort of Schr?dinger's Prime going on in there... I fear for my Alternators.

Hmm...interesting. He's actually smaller than I remember.

Does Revoltech Megatron tower over him noticeable? They'd be paired up a lot.

Edit: I wasn't interested initially as I already have waaaaay too many Primes (casual collector here), so I didn't really have a reason for another. But if he could interact with the Revoltechs, I might reconsider. He's looking a bit short, though. Like I said, I'd be more interested in him compared with Megs, or the other two, Hot Rod and Starscream.

Megs and Prime are the same height, as is Starscream, so they would stand over Prime a bit.

I sold both of them off. Too small and fiddly. The Galaxy Force toy is just the leader-size shrunken down to obnoxiously tiny size.
