Back in my day, I called them "Mini-Spies".

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 02:06 PM)

Think about the implications of it though, robots in disguise themselves infiltrated and paranoid by the recent shifts in the status quo.

@  unluckiness : (28 May 2017 - 07:47 AM)

I'm kinda glad. A couple tie-in stories aside, Secret Invasion was a mess.

Almost makes you wonder if some of the aborted Micronauts relaunch concept didn't slip in...

Titan Masters could quite easily have been Transformers: Secret invasion, the return of the Mini-cons/Stentarians but noooooo, it had to be whatever the pit it is.

I always interpreted that scene to mean that asgardians weren't capable of breaking down problems in the same way as humans.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 06:58 AM)

I mean, SG1 was a good show on balance. One of my favourite things was Thor admitting he found humans good to keep around because they so often came up with stupid ideas that nevertheless worked out.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Those episodes were 1969 and 2010.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Stargate sg1 was loosely based on the movie, it thrived on continuity it was impressive how old situations and solutions would come back in unexpected ways. Continuum had it's villain use the characters own solution in two previous episodes against them.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:39 AM)

And yeah, name is based on a part of my surname. Can't remember why I picked it. Lost to memories of the primordial early 2000s.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:37 AM)

Like how Abydos in the movie is in another galaxy on the far side of the universe, but Abydos in SG1 is the closest world to Earth (and that was the only reason the gate could still get there) and even getting to other galaxies was impossible with the normal gates.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:35 AM)

I was very tired when I said that, but what I meant was a lot of stuff that is in the original Stargate movie is contradicted a lot in Stargate SG1.

The prequel-creep from the original Stargate movie to SG1 is kinda funny.

We'll see what shipping works out to be but I highly doubt it'll be over $190. icon-fire.gif

I won't be any where near that. Depends on how much you ordered, but I preordered the entire RID lineup and I'm thinking shipping will be $30 to $60 for the first set, and probably a bit less for the second.

Remember these guys come out in two different months and will ship separately. They won't ship together (one shipment for May releases the other for June).

I'm thinking of preordering the entire line as well. I was thinking of going with EMS, since FedEx would probably be the expensive route. Which shipping option do you usually choose Randy?

I almost always go with EMS. If you're ordering any more than 1 figure or something large it's usually worth it compared to SAL.

Since I've gotten a lot of questions about this, here are my orders from HLJ in the last 360 days. All used EMS shipping, you can get a rough estimate on how much you might be looking for in regards to shipping charges based on this. I have a lot of very large orders and a lot of orders that are just one or two figures. Looking quickly the most expensive shipping was 8500 ish yen, which was for some huge orders (which I think is $120 these days).

I doubt it...well at least I hope not. If you look at Randy's order history, the only transaction that cost him 8500 for shipping had roughly 12 toys and one of those was a Masterpiece figure.

No it should be much less if it's just 1 Voyager and 5 Deluxes.

I'd say between 4000 Yen and 6000 Yen roughly. I'm sure it might even be cheaper if 4 Deluxes were just 2,500 yen and 2 Voyagers were 2,300 yen.

I think once it reaches certain thresholds for the size of the box and/or weight it reaches a pretty set price.

I'd have to see if I have any orders older than that (like for early United or Henkei) that are around that size.

The 8,500 yen orders I purchased were very large Masterpiece figures or a ton of United figures with at least doubles of each.

I think something like the order with Striker Optimus and the 2 EZ Collection boxes (which was 5,440 Yen) is more likely.

Randy

I wish I could tell if Bulkhead was a new mold or the same as the FE version, because then I could cancel him on HLJ and get one with extra minicon.


In their promo shots they used the show's CGI models for the molds they don't have photos of (Arcee, Ratchet and Bulkhead), Blacked out the new voyagers(Starscream and Optimus), and used toys for the ones Hasbro has released images of or is an FE toy(Soundwave, Cliffjumper, Bumblebee, Terracon Cliff and That is deluxe Megatron as HLJ has him at deluxe price). Just anoter piece of evidence saying Bulkhead is getting a new Voyager toy.


And that just means I have to get FE Bulkhead still somehow, because I have no idea what this new mold looks like. Maybe I can cancel FE Cliffjumper because the Zombie version is mostly the same. Decisions decisions.
