Thats good.. I can't do those kinda of fixes... can't do anything really.

@  Telly : (25 September 2017 - 03:52 PM)

one of his legs was tight so i had to do the fix. hes all better now

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (25 September 2017 - 02:53 PM)

Why are you doing surgery to Tripty?

@  Telly : (25 September 2017 - 02:49 PM)

got my trypticon. currently doing surgery on him. so nertz to you paladin :p

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2017 - 01:56 PM)

It takes all kinds of critters to make Farmer Vincent fritters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 September 2017 - 01:35 AM)

Sad to say, I'll likely be picking up The Last Knight this week. If nothing else, it should look fantastic on 4K Blu-Ray, and my 4K OLED is still new enough I'm willing to watch things I hate if they look stunning

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 September 2017 - 01:34 AM)

Yeah, I picked it up last time when it got the 3-D conversion re-release treatment

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2017 - 12:57 AM)

To be honest I think I'd rather a copy of The Lion King over a copy of The Last Knight, and I already own a copy of the Lion King on bluray...

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 September 2017 - 12:36 AM)

I spent some time looking for a thread about The Lion King before I figured out the movie you actually meant

@  Noideaforaname : (24 September 2017 - 11:47 PM)

I kinda want to post in that "Win TLK on Blu-Ray" thread, but I don't want to actually win...

@  wonko the sane? : (24 September 2017 - 06:29 PM)

well TS to the toy gods. Website went back up, and I ordered it anyway. Wasn't even for me, it was for my brother...

@  Telly : (24 September 2017 - 05:50 PM)

its the toy gods telling you that you dont need whatever it was you were gonna order

@  wonko the sane? : (24 September 2017 - 02:49 PM)

Arrrg! Just as I was about to make my first purchase from BBTS in years: their website up and dies on me.

@  Msol : (24 September 2017 - 02:35 PM)

Picked up Slugslinger. Awesome figure except for some unfortunate mold degradation. His fists are so loose and held just by friction. Hopefully they don't start falling out randomly.

Found Infernocus at the local TrU today, he's still TFP Legion Abominus for sure, but metal as hug. Pretty cool for $5 more than a Voyager.

Oh, odd coincidence, this afternoon my PS3 wasn't turning on. I seem to have fixed it tho.

@  Pennpenn : (23 September 2017 - 06:21 AM)

Oh great, my PS3 stopped reading discs. Brilliant.

@  BlackMax : (22 September 2017 - 08:38 PM)

Nope, that is a keen idea though. My team was Sentinel-Hulk-Haggar, Team Huge.

@  Bass X0 : (22 September 2017 - 02:17 PM)

Did anyone have a Prime team in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 consisting of Sentinel, Nova and Nemesis?

@  Robowang : (21 September 2017 - 10:06 PM)

Ok, I can't find the "Savage on a Ravage" pic that soneone pisted. Can anyone link me to it?

I'm pretty sure most vampires would cause a gremlin infestation just for the giggles.

@  OrionPax44 : (21 September 2017 - 11:13 AM)

Well then there's yellowing but isn't that all of them. I like to leave all my TF's in a hot car all day long to let all their joints turn to jelly.

just ordered tr trypticon. should have it monday :)

@  OrionPax44 : (20 September 2017 - 04:57 PM)

@Robowang I have one somewhere and I can send it to you. Don't worry about it. Just let me find it

@  Bass X0 : (20 September 2017 - 04:43 PM)

Sometime last week, I purchased Hasbro Windblade online then a day or two later, Takara Windblade was announced for only £4.99 more making me instantly regret buying Hasbro's Windblade. Guess I'll be giving Hasbro Windblade to my nephew for Christmas then.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 02:24 PM)

That whole flat-rate shipping thing makes the math easy.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 02:23 PM)

4 bucks

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:15 PM)

Hmm. How much is shipping from BBTS?

@  NightViper : (20 September 2017 - 02:09 PM)

Set of the four is still $22 at BBTS

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:00 PM)

Ramhorn is currently available from a third party seller via Amazon for $27.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 11:47 AM)

Anybody have the TR PM OP trading card they don't want? I lost mine! Will pay you for it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (20 September 2017 - 11:35 AM)

If you don't need her I'll take her off ya.

@  BlackMax : (20 September 2017 - 10:04 AM)

When I get that power-batteryOptimus I swear I will carry it everywhere. It'll be like having a useful tool AND being six years old again all at once.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 09:58 AM)

I guess he's gone now. Oh well.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I saw Ramhorn all over ebay for $16 a week ago or so.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 09:02 AM)

Just ordered Arcee.  I don't need her.  But she's pink.  And a robot.  A combination I love.

Pony dreams?
Man out of my 3 pony related dreams 2 were about talking about ponies in /co/...
At least the other was more interesting.
Basically the US government ordered Fluttershy's death and sent everything to get her. The next moment I'm in the middle of New York with Fluttershy hiding under a newspaper and Twilight screaming that we need to find a way to get them back to Equestria. Then 20 soldiers come out of nowhere and surround us. Twilight and Fluttershy go all Prototype and start running on building while the soldires look a bit confused and then fill me with bullets.


And there was that time with the fever induced hallucination with Deadpool and Rarity...That was just...really, really strange.

The brony meet-up was a lot of fun. The group was quite visible, what with the pony t-shirts and the large brony-banner that was held up. I couldn?t resist the urge to have a little fun:

Me: "My little pony? Aren?t you guys a bit too old to be into that?"
Brony: "No, you see, there is this new show, called Friendship is Magic, and it?s actually really good and has amassed quite a fanbase in a relatively short amount of time."
Me: "Oh yeah? But why is Rarity the best pony?"
Brony:" Yeah, really, the show has taken in qui...." *realization, grins* "She isn?t, Applejack is. Welcome to the meeting"

I didn?t bother to count the total of bronies, as people were coming and going all the time (I guess to go play video games), but there were about a dozen bronies present at all times. One had brought a Twilight Sparkle Plushie he bought off someone on deviantart IIRC. I don?t recall the name of the gifted seamstress, but the quality was top notch. I was quite impressed with it.

Much time was spent on people recounting how they stumbled upon the ponies, generally discussing the show and just plain getting to know one another.

Of course I had to show off my sculpted FIM stuff as well. I was completely overwhelmed by just how well received my Applebloom was.
I had only one painted copy with me, and that one sold for 20€ (~ 29$) in an instant, and those who missed out on that particular Applebloom already put in orders for more- so I guess I?ll be painting Appleblooms for a while.

I should probably have made the hop to Cologne ( 1 1/4 hours), but eh. Weekend. Le tired. And Gamescon fails to excite me, ponies nonwithstanding. Seems it was a success for everyone else, though, so yay.

Apparently there's a Pinkie Pie christmas ornament, and it's currently available at Carlton Cards stores in Ontario (likely the rest of Canada, too). Seems to be at least a little bit more show accurate than anything Hasbro's come up with, to boot. In any case, it's not ugly like some of their toys are. I'll likely be dropping by the Eaton Centre or thereabouts to pick one up. Can't say I've ever really been in a Carlton Cards looking for Christmas Ornaments (Hallmark seems to be the more popular choice).

http://www.equestria...-available.html

1. Do you suppose they might start selling those at stores a little further south? I live in Oregon, and I don't have a car, so long distance trips aren't exactly easy for me, though if I could, I would.
2. Is it common for stores in Canada to be selling Christmas ornaments IN SUMMER? I mean, I know stores get started on holiday merchandising early (at least, they do where I come from), but that's kinda ridiculous.

Also, Rarity is a valid choice, and I accept and tolerate that you have chosen her. However, it is a simple fact that Pinkie Pie is truly the best pony. icon-waspy.gif

It's an American Greetings ornament, so I imagine it'll be sold in the US eventually. I've never really seen stores selling Christmas ornaments up here in the Summer before, but as I said I've never really been in a Carlton Cards; or specifically on the lookout for Christmas ornaments at this time of year. I don't buy many Christmas ornaments in general, aside from the occassional attractive one I might come across while browsing around or doing Christmas shopping in December. The only ones I tend to actively seek out are the Star Trek ships that Hallmark puts out; and I'll only buy that if they've chosen an attractive class of vessel to issue that year.

Sweet!

I ask because I actually have a fake bonsai Christmas tree (which I made--and flocked--myself) sitting on top of my bookcase year-round. It's kinda bare, having only a very few ornaments, so I would love to fill some space on it with some Pony! I'll have to keep an eye out for this . . .

Gamescom isn?t worth it, honestly. Even if I?d care for video games, it was so crowded, that even getting near the popular booths was impossible.
So while i would have liked to get a chance to chat with Notch at the Minecraft booth, I was not very keen on standing in line for hours on end.

Instead I went to the booth for Star Trek: Infinite Space. Never herd of the game, and I still don?t know what it?s about, but I got an inflatable Bat?Leth.

Which is awesome.
