@  Telly : (26 September 2017 - 11:20 AM)

the chest drawer on my tripty is fine. nice and tight even with full tilt clinging on

@  Dekafox : (25 September 2017 - 10:14 PM)

Mine seemed to ahve teh slight door warping too but it's not bad enough that Full-Tilt's weight pulls it open, so I haven't bothered with chest screws yet

@  Dekafox : (25 September 2017 - 10:13 PM)

I did the hip compression too when I got mine earlier today. It was hard to tell when I did it enough(and the end of the spring still hurt a bit after a bit of doing it) but seemed to work fine. Also seemed very tail-heavy when I worked on getting him to stand angled instead of upright

@  BlackMax : (25 September 2017 - 08:51 PM)

@Tm_ You can be a dude on a TF message board, that's not half bad.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 September 2017 - 08:02 PM)

Oh hey, today's the anniversary of our universe, Quadwal -3760.925 Theta!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (25 September 2017 - 05:06 PM)

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

@  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)

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.

@  Dracula : (21 September 2017 - 12:40 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (21 September 2017 - 11:46 AM)

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

@  Noideaforaname : (21 September 2017 - 11:42 AM)

Hmm, a vampire would have a hell of a hard time getting rid of a Gremlin infestation, wouldn't he?

@  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.

@  Telly : (21 September 2017 - 11:12 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2017 - 10:50 AM)

KAIJU NOT FOR SALE

@  Dracula : (21 September 2017 - 10:49 AM)

don't get any water on your trypticon, and don't feed him after midnight.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2017 - 10:42 AM)

I've had mine for two weeks with no problems. Just don't be a hamfist with it.

@  Paladin : (21 September 2017 - 08:36 AM)

@  Telly : (21 September 2017 - 07:37 AM)

@  Paladin : (21 September 2017 - 06:46 AM)

@  Telly : (20 September 2017 - 09:00 PM)

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.

Mine definitely pegs together. You have to use an amount of force to get his chest halves out of his torso.

For my next video, I'll drop him down the stairs.

Okay. I didn't see anyone doubting you and asking for proof. You're not alone in reporting a figure that holds together as was probably intended.

I saw people reporting a different experience. We all know that there can be varying tolerances with the same figure, running changes to a mold, and so on. This isn't really unusual, so I guess I'm not sure why it's getting a "mine works, you're all doing it wrong" defense.


Nope, mine definitely comes apart if you queef on it too hard. I wish mine was like yours, Walky! I have 2 of them, both won't peg-in.

Wow, between this and Walky's fondling, I really have to wonder about what it is people are doing with their FE Bumblebee figures.

I mean, I realized he was a fun toy, but I didn't think he was THAT kind of fun. icon-depth.gif

I wasn't sure if this needed a new topic all its own, so I'm posting it here:





I'm guessing that the Wave 1 case is 2 Bumblebees, 2 Wheeljacks, 2 Cliffjumpers, and 2 Soundwaves, right? Soundwave was nowhere to be seen, just the others. And after I picked up Jackie here and rounded a corner in the store, minutes later everything else save for the Bumblebees was gone. icon-waspy.gif

I'm wondering now, though: is there still any chance of the FE figures appearing now that the main Prime line has apparently made it stateside, or will we have to start watching Ross and other bargain stores to find them? icon-screamer.gif

Initially likely so, but since this is the main line we'll see plenty of everything shortly.

Huh. I just realized it says "Deluxe class" at the top of the back of the package. I thought they were renaming the size class for Prime? The TRU receipt even says Revealers.

It's kinda like how most stores label Cyberverse as "Megaverse" (at least in my experience). It was probably an internal/working name at some point, but that's how they got entered into the systems.

To be fair: "Was once a Wrecker. Old friend of Bulkhead." was pretty much the extent of his personality on the show too.

But yeah, that bio is definately not going to win any awards.


-ZacWilliam, feels like you can tell the difference between bios written by someone who likes to do creative writing or who loves the line and knows its history and those that are written by a random copywriter from a one line blurb in the story bible. The later saddly being the more common.

I beg to disagree. Knitting swords you can clearly do at least two things with.

Battle swords just aren't that versatile.
