@  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

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?

Of course I left Bumblebee. icon-waspy.gif Might want to prioritize these on your hunt if you want a Sideswipe with decent paint apps, though.

Sadly the Primes were still cased up, and I didn't feel like opening them myself, but believe me when I say you won't have any problem getting one, they had three solid cases full at this one rinky-dink store.

I very highly recommend Sideswipe. He's so pretty.

I like that Sideswipe, only cause he's colorful enough to be a different character.

My Walmart never even got that Cornettor set, though, so we'll just see.

He's been out over here in Sainsbury's for a few weeks now and he flies off the shelves. BB warms them in his absence. Grab him while you can.

I already liked this mould, but the new colour scheme is a beauty and matches well with Topspin (not 100%, but close enough).

Glad Optimus won't be hard to find, but I'm sure we'll be seeing him for a long time to come (maybe; it's about the right price and character to be a big seller for Christmas).

Don't care for the other two.

Weird. I had no problems at all with Sidearmswipe or Rallyswipe. Both head mechanisims work great on mine.

And good lord, this toy looks BEAUTIFUL in person. Pictures can't convey how vibrant he looks in person.

edit: Cross posting some photos I just took!

Eh, I think i don't like the SASS repaint because of its yellow head (just doesn't work well, to me) and the fact that it's the closest they've come to doing Tracks from this mold, but it's clearly not him. Nor does it make a good Sunstreaker.

Also, went back to WM again today; no exclusives yet. I settled on using my gift card for DOTM Voy Megatron and the GL: Emerald Knights DVD.

Not my finest work, but when life gives you lemons, they're yellow so just paint black stripes on them and call them Bumblebee. Kids will buy them.

Absolutely. It's really a great mold; one of the best movieverese deluxe cars there is.

Also, anyone have both deluxe Optimus and Voy Megatron? I'm kinda hoping that they're roughly in scale in vehicle mode.
