Anyone still need a Chaos on Velocitron set? Found one at TRU today...

Are there even enough toys of him to collect?

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 July 2017 - 04:21 PM)

A nerd.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:19 PM)

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

Try it now.

Heads up though -- the number of times someone can change their name per period of time is going to be drastically reduced in the coming update.

It is one of our most 'complained about' features and was only intended to be used sparingly.

Is there an easy way to backtrack who is who? That's why it irks me: I understand that there are good reasons (besides fads icon-waspy.gif) to change your screen name. Problem is when we get a big fad and suddenly half the board has new names, avatars, and signatures. icon-megs.gif While some people tend to stay on theme at least so that new and old names are kind of obvious, it is so tedious having to check people's profiles.

Didn't they drop that alignment? Neutrality always seemed like a farce (the smart choice, but a farce icon-arcee.gif ). I preferred systems like GURPS anyway where those kind of behaviors and dictated by Disadvantage choices. That way I can be a Charitable character with a strong Sense of Duty towards others... except for the whole Murder Addiction. icon-fire.gif

They combined it with Lawful Evil, into just Evil, but nobody pays attention to the modified alignment system, at least that I've ever played with or spoken to.

Building on this, is there any chance that the "Member's Display Name History" item from the profile could be added to the drop-down menu that appears when you click on someone's username? Saving that one step would make it a lot easier to deal with, I think.
