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

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 July 2017 - 06:01 PM)

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2017 - 05:07 PM)

@  Dracula : (18 July 2017 - 04:42 PM)

Kudos to Fun Pub for listening to the fans and adding a spot for Runamuck while also being able to cover it up with the bio card.

I miss the black around Drift's eyes. I don't recall if other things have changed on him.

I don't really have much interest in an SG Drift as it is, though I may still pre-order him. Just not right away. I don't think there will be a huge run, so if it can wait a week or two I'll pick him up as a Classics Knockout (Even though it doesn't have the same resemblence it did when it was first shown), because I like the Knockout character and doubt he's going to get a Classics the same way Lugnut did.

I don't know if you can answer this question or not, but I'll give it a try...

I get that Over-Run is a name required for trademark reasons. That is how the toy has to be sold.

What I'm not sure I get is why it follows that the name has to be used on not only the packaging, but the Tech Specs. Surely the Tech Specs could have used the real name? Or, if not, why not? You're not selling the Tech Specs! (And, I actually ask the same in regard to the packaging, since you're not using the package to sell from, as if on a shelf at a brick-and-mortar store. The only use of the name in actual trade is online...)

I think it's because the paperwork is the only evidence you have for your copyright/trademarks. Like if Bandai produced a Gundam who on their website was listed as OP-83, but on the packaging was called Optimus Prime. Officially it might be called OP-83, but the packaging is infringing on Hasbro's trademark/copyright.

Also the techspecs and box are part of the complete package you are selling, not just the toy.

Woo, a spot for Runamuck! I like that.

Not that any of my BotCon/Club boxes actually HAVE any guys in them currently, since it's easier to just ziplock bag them and throw them in a tub with everyone else, but that's still an awesome touch.

I think you're misreading it. Not ((both his swords) AND (two guns)), but (both (his swords) AND (two guns)).

Still, nice figures, nice packaging.

So, who's parked in front of the net obsessively already?

I've got a kid's dentist appointment tonight at 5pm and story time at the library tomarrow between 10 and 11:30am and I already have "What if they go up for sale then" agita...

Well, about Over Run at least, Driftpool would be a pass for me even at retail.


-ZacWilliam, I know they have to wait for the ok, but a little more of a window than "soon" would be really nice...

I'm not sure I buy that last sentence of explanation, but would welcome more information to support it. Although my original question was intended to include the package, I can see the possible explanation for that part, but I still can't figure why the Tech Specs have to fall in that same problem. If the toy were packaged with Tech Specs that had a different name, how would that be a potential violation of someone else's trademark?
