A loose Scraplet wandering around??? Get back to the damn bar where you belong.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (27 July 2017 - 01:16 PM)

Or a scraplet!

@  Dracula : (27 July 2017 - 12:25 PM)

you might be a witch or a vampire.

@  Dracula : (27 July 2017 - 12:25 PM)

it's called "melting," yeah

@  tffan01 : (27 July 2017 - 12:17 PM)

I can't be the only one.

Anyone get this weird sensation when they're showering in hot water?

@  Daith : (26 July 2017 - 11:48 PM)

Stop making business sense! Your triggering my irrational hatred more!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 July 2017 - 10:49 PM)

We know why places ain't pre-ordering. Walmart wants "SNES Mini in stock!" In there adds to get people into the strores, and GameStop wants to hold systems back till production is over with to scalp them.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 July 2017 - 10:47 PM)

Stupid tablet made my edit a new post instead.

When The Revolution Comes, They'll Be The First Against The Wall-Mart

@  D Buster Prime : (26 July 2017 - 06:20 PM)

Wal-Mart? More like Off The Wall-Mart! Amiright?! *cries over canceled preorder*

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:39 PM)

And the Walmart debacle has no doubt pissed off a whole lot of people. What should be fun is turned into a harrowing experience by these kind of pathetic sales tactics

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:38 PM)

Nintendo is really starting to push fans' patience with this SNES classic thing. Why are preorders open someplaces overseas but not in North America?

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:03 PM)

Well anywho it's out in Canada and I grabbed mine. I couldn't find a thread so just as a warning: watch out when flipping the head out -- I scratched the paint off a bit while doing so. Very little clearance!

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:01 PM)

Is MPM-3 Bumblebee out in the US yet?

@  Daith : (26 July 2017 - 03:40 PM)

So all of us who thought we had our SNES Classic lined up friday night through Walmart.com just got flipped the bird.

@  Evac : (26 July 2017 - 08:51 AM)

Same.

@  MEDdMI : (26 July 2017 - 05:15 AM)

I just hate Facebook.

@  Confuzor : (26 July 2017 - 01:25 AM)

I hate when follow a link to an article from Facebook it has all this extra junk in the address box, so if I want to copy/paste to send to my friends via text, I have to go hunt down the "permalink" so it's a more manageable size

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 08:52 PM)

*sigh* Yup.

@  Foffy : (24 July 2017 - 06:16 PM)

That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:34 PM)

I call bullshit on that

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 01:08 PM)

Read the article. Apparently too many comics sets off the machines due to the glossy pages messing up the X-ray

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:03 PM)

what possible justification could they have to ban books containing drawings?

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 12:56 PM)

Per the article, United appears to be the only airline, but there might be others.

@  Dracula : (24 July 2017 - 12:48 PM)

Like anyone needed another reason not to fly United

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 10:52 AM)

Note I wrote "bombshell"in lowercase.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:17 AM)

in this case, face

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 10:16 AM)

depends what appendage its used on.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

I'm something something years old and I have actually never shaved with anything other than electric

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

is it worth the trouble?

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

Why does a safety razor give a closer shave than an electric razor?

@  RichardT1977 : (24 July 2017 - 10:08 AM)

Nevermore That was Shrapnel, not Bombshell.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:07 AM)

Deluxe Sludge alone is enough that I probably won't have to eat anything until 2025.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:06 AM)

I don't know about Paladin, but I personally am fueled by the rage of fans who have a very specific idea of what a Transformers toyline should be.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 July 2017 - 09:23 AM)

What do you mean too good? I don't recall lots of Micromaster updates.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 09:06 AM)

i remain unconvinced. "if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is."

@  General Tekno : (24 July 2017 - 08:58 AM)

yep - especially given that sure is one hyper easy forensic trail to find everyone involved in the leak

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 08:56 AM)

@  Fear or Courage : (24 July 2017 - 08:41 AM)

At least in Canada, they have excellent customer service.

@  Maruten : (23 July 2017 - 11:33 PM)

I've ordered from them several times with no problems.

@  Telly : (23 July 2017 - 11:19 PM)

Lots of the Allspark staff are going to be there this year, and while we've been too busy to plan a "meetup" per se, we will (if all goes well) have a table at Botcon where I imagine we'll be spending lots of time. You might run into:

Bainreese
Cheetimus
ChessPieceFace
Daytonus
Galenraff
Lonegamer8
Master Fwiffo
MrBlud
Nightviper

This. The staff has been very busy getting ready for Botcon, but we have bounced the idea around. Who knows, maybe once we all get there on Thursday we will have time to hash something out...

T-shirts are not in the current plans. But don't worry, we DO keep talking about those because many of us on staff want new ones that haven't been laundered a thousand times too. We haven't forgotten about t-shirts.

But I think you guys are REALLY going to like some of the stuff that we will have. We're very close to announcing things. Maybe we're ready? I don't know if we're ready. I'll just tease with that for now until we're sure we're ready.

And that's only half of the staff who are there. Some though may be getting in late or in the case of Bainreese have their family with them.

Hello I havent been around the Forums much the past few years, my oldest boy kind of took over the Collection. But we are going sunday for our first Botcon and for his 13th birthday. We are stoked. I only remember some of the people here. Kal of course and some guy that always had Fang in his name. If you see a large furry guy wearing a Blue Baseball cap with RH (rockhounds) and a kid with a Blue transformers comic book shirt Say High. Im not as scary as I look icon-hotrod.gif

Take Care, John

We had fun, but I don't know if anyone brought a camera. I got to meet a few people, we ate and had some drinks, it took way too long to get our bills paid, and then we went to hang out more at the hotel. I know it may not seem like much, but the guys were really busy getting things done for the site this year. Gatherings are fun, but I think this year it was more important to take care of things for the site and they did an amazing job.

edit: We did get a pic of a lot of Allsparkers after the movie preview. Maybe I will be able to post it tomorrow.
