@  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

So the Smitty's were coming out of Wal-Mart last night when all of the sudden this black Camaro stops a few feet short of hitting my wife and son. My son pointed at the can and said "Bumblebee!"

Did you lose both your hands/arms in a combine harvester accident that you are now unable to point?

They need to make some TFs with a destoner or a tomato harvester or even a bale wrapper alt-mode.

I think we should rename this thread to "Transformers: TNG" because Smitty's inspired me to tell a cool story about my son.

I've pretty much always had some version of Transformers on the TV since my son was born (he's 3.5 now), and while I know he picks up alot (he knows most of the G1-BW show guys and the live action movies, and can delineate between different lines, i.e. the difference between movie and prime prime), I didn't know just how much until this past weekend. He's seen the '86 movie countless times and has always loved Hot Rod, so I thought it would be extra special that when MP Rodimus came out this year I put one away for him for Christmas (which helps me twofold in getting really good at his transformation, but I digress).

He loves having his own of course after oogling my 2 for the last few months. He loves that he can change from Hot Rod to Rodimus Prime. When the Hub starting showing season 3 he was particularly excited because it has all his buddies from the animated movie. Last weekend we were watching FFoD part 3, in particular the scene where Rodimus short-circuits himself and travels into the Matrix. My son (his name is RC or Ryan Christopher Junior) says "Dada, there's Hot Rod!" I didn't really look up from what I was doing, but knowing the ep I said "No, that's Rodimus Prime." He says, "NO Dada, that's Hot Rod!" I look up and sure enough, he caught an animation mistake, where they drew Rodimus with Hot Rod's facial lines. "You're right!" I said. "Good boy!" I was totally dumbfounded with this, as even when I was watching G1 as an 8-year-old I never picked up on that slight difference between the characters (I had always just assumed Hot Rod was shorter and pinker, mostly based on my memory of him reverting in Dark Awakening).

I really think I'm creating a monster! Whenever we get into the car all he wants to listen to is Unicron's theme.
What are everyone else's stories of Transformers: The Next Generation?

I think he brought it up on the topic of unconventional vehicles.

A hearse Transformer could be a Decepticon named Deadbolt. And has a stasis pod in the back.
