"how expensive they were" Tell that to L.O.L. O.M.G. and the $129 Amazing Surprise (I mean I guess when it comes to the toy aisle Power Rangers isn't a juggernaut like L.O.L.)

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:18 PM)

I think the big reason we didn't see the actual combining Zords at retail was because of how expensive they were. It would cost $100 to get enough of them to make a Megazord, $160+ if you want the Ultrazord. Or parents could just get the dang Ultrazord for $40 even if it didn't combine.

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

Because they are "kids toys" not "collector toys"

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 03:27 PM)

1) I don't have Target. 2) can't go into my walmart. I'm surprised Hasbro won't sell the toys on Pulse

@  Bass X0 : (24 January 2020 - 02:43 PM)

I dreamt my phone was ringing and woke up to answer it.

@  Sabrblade : (24 January 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The Lightning Collection figures, the smaller normal-sized Beast Morphers Ranger/enemy/Beast-Bot figures, the role-play morpher and weapon toys, and the simplistic non-combining megazord toys have all been very easy to find at various Targets and Walmarts. It's only been the actual combining Beast Morphers zord toys (which are bizarrely being sold individually this time) that have been hard to find in stores.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:49 PM)

Thought I do question Hasbro's almost reluctance to have the toys available anywhere.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 01:44 PM)

i've been trying to sell mine for weeks...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I hadn't opened mine yet, but from what I've seen, the general agreement is that the Beast Morpher zords are much better than Bandais.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I'm guessing if they're going to do anything on the level of Legacy Zords, it's being discussed behind NDAs at Toy Fair

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 January 2020 - 10:38 AM)

Lightning Collection is good, and they're taking their sweet time on making Zords that are better than Bandai's Zords.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 10:34 AM)

So, what's the general PR fandom consensus of the Hasbro run of PR so far? I pretty much stepped out of the community after I got the Bandai Legacy zords I wanted.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 08:46 AM)

that would require someone to BUY Hasbro PR toys...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 07:17 AM)

Well hopefully see some cool PR stuff. Wish BBTS sold Hasbro PR toys.

@  fourteenwings : (24 January 2020 - 07:01 AM)

February 22nd through 25th, I feel like it was earlier last year...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 06:32 AM)

When is NY TF?

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:43 PM)

I don't know about Hasbro's general policy but I know everybody was on lockdown for Frozen II, which included both LEGO and Hasbro. Plus, I'm guessing everybody is holding off PR for NY Toy Fair? Overall, it's best to remember that Toy Fairs are for buyers, not fans.

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:41 PM)

LEGO has been doing this for ages, including sending cease and desists when outlets get leaked images.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:42 PM)

And then they ended up selling off the brand, so I guess I wasn't the only one.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:41 PM)

Last time a toy brand I followed tightened down on toy fair and all the invited guests posted glowing reviews of what they saw, I ended up being disappointed as heck.

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:34 PM)

JediNews UK basically said they got a walkthrough of Lego's showcase...but were legally bound to NOT talk about anything, much less take pics.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:24 PM)

I wondered why I had seen basically nothing newsworthy from the event

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:14 PM)

Word is that Hasbro and Lego have their UK Toy Fair stuff on MAJOR lockdown. Full NDAs and everything.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 09:28 PM)

Seeing people say the $0.99 + $20 shipping item is cheaper than the $19.99 + free shipping item and getting tons of likes for it... I just don't know anymore.

@  Telly : (23 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

if you havent already, y'all check your walmarts clearance aisle. i found siege six shot for $5. course, it could just be my walmart, but never hurts to look

@  Vexwing : (23 January 2020 - 07:20 PM)

@  Patch : (23 January 2020 - 06:30 PM)

@  Telly : (23 January 2020 - 02:06 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 January 2020 - 08:42 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 January 2020 - 06:58 PM)

Bold of you all to assume we won't wipe ourselves out in 50 years.

@  Benbot : (22 January 2020 - 04:27 PM)

There will be no UBI, people will just live in a ditch while they celebrate owning the libs.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2020 - 03:24 PM)

In 50 years, retail will be dead because all stores are staffless fully automated operations controlled by Amazon. The UBI will be less than a fifth of what it actually costs to live after two decades of cuts and.a steadfast refusal to match inflation.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 January 2020 - 02:55 PM)

In fifty years retail will be a thing of the past through robots, printers and Universal Basic Income.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (21 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

Big retailers just don't want money anymore, so let's not give them any,

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:12 PM)

This place is a madhouse, feels like being cloned.

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 January 2020 - 03:38 PM)

I took one step beyond the outer limits to the twilight zone.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 10:19 AM)

All retail is basically the same.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2020 - 10:00 AM)

Walmart just needs to go bankrupt already.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:19 AM)

They didn't put the 35th anniversary stuff back out until after new year. I'm no retail expert, but I feel like having stock on the shelf is better than the back. Especially toys at christmas time.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Yeah, my local walmart took away the 35th anniversary endcap weeks before Christmas and left the Transformer section empty well past Christmas.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:44 AM)

Mine only has the 35th Anniversary Voyagers. A whole lot of them.

@  Telly : (19 January 2020 - 11:35 PM)

just be happy your walmart even stocks voyagers. mine doesnt

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 January 2020 - 08:53 PM)

Figures that Walmart finally restocks Studio Voyagers...with Wave ONE

@  ThunderWear : (19 January 2020 - 09:27 AM)

I snagged Rainmakers for half off.  They make me want jolly ranchers.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 04:21 PM)

I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:23 AM)

Well there is an overpriced limited edition, but I don't want to pay that much money for it.

(david tennant played the tenth doctor. TENnant. TENth. coincidence??)

As of right now, six stories for Pertwee (Spearhead from Space plus the whole of his fourth year), twelve stories for Tom Baker (the whole of his first and last years, with the latter set including K-9 and Company), and the whole of Peter Davison's first year. Preorders are also available for Colin Baker's second year (The Trial of a Time Lord) and Sylvester McCoy's third and final year has been announced. The TV movie's apparently out on Blu-Ray too, just not in the US.

my blurays arrived. cant really tell any difference in the picture. its to be expected though, as i read they didnt start filming in hd until the specials (and even those dont look any different). but a company was able to make the new monty python blurays look brand new with older sources so *shrug*

 

fun "telly is an idiot" moment! i pull the discs out of the sleeve and see that it reads "the complete david tennant series 2-3". im like "why does it start with series 2?"

Oh look a motorcycle chase across a field while a guy in a car shoots at them. That's what I watch Doctor Who for.

 

It'll probably be fine, but that was a slightly underwhelming trailer.

I agree it was kind underwhelming but then last season was really dull to the point I stopped watching about the worse ep of that I saw was the Rosa ep, that was a load of crap and never should of been green lighted as it only dragging up issues that shouldn't be issues anymore. I'll give this new series a try to see if they regained some of the lost sparkle but if not, I'll likely stop watching until they get rid of the current head writer and Jode regenerates into someone else, I felt Jode wasn't being challanged as a actress in series 11 but then I didn't like the compaions either, all three of them were boring and pretty much check box characters for those with the political agendas that are bringing down the entertainment world of late.

Doctor Who is fiction and all its supposed values are no longer being presented by the BBC factually.

I won't say this trailer's got me excited, but there were some neat bits to it. Could care less about the car chases than I do the presence of Stephen Fry, though - he's awesome.

 

Also, returning monsters! Judoon! Cybermen! Maybe the Racnoss! I doubt we'll see the Master or the Rani under Chibnall's tenure - especially the Rani - but hey, glad to see some recurring aliens return for another round.

Can't say I'm surprised by that bit of unpleasant news. Then again, I'm cynical about news media in general.

So far, I've been fortunate enough to have little-to-no overlap in my SD collection vs. these blu-rays. Colin Baker's set will be my first overlap, and for me, I'm happy to skip the blu-ray in favor of my existing DVDs, as there's exactly a one-to-one correspondence, so no worries about getting episodes I already have just to get the ones I don't (and I don't care a flip about HD).
 

I'll have to start making much harder decisions soon.


so just so im clear: We're not gettin some kind of holiday special this year?

Not unless there's a New Year's Special for 2020.

But seriously, I wish they'd stop telling us the new series is coming soon, and just give us a date already!

My guess is mid to late January, or prehaps the start of Feb, I hope the series returns to form after a really dull time in series 11, it felt like all of energy and exictiment had been sucked out of the room during that series.

Jodie is great as the Doctor, all I want is more of her. Between all three companions and the Doctor, screentime for everybody was stretched pretty thin last series so hopefully we are in store for a better balance this time. And the returning villains will be welcomed with open arms.

Actually, the Blu-Rays do have new content on them that the original DVDs didn't have. That's the one thing that justified my purchasing the Blu-Rays for the classic series. Whether that new content is worth spending your money is, of course, up to you.

Generally speaking, new content = interviews, documentaries, etc. While I enjoy these when I have them, I would never, ever, spend extra money to get them.
