@  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

I'm supposed to un-enrolled in Medicare at the end of the month (36 months post-transplant), but I'm getting a bill for next quarter's coverage.

@  Glenn : (19 July 2017 - 11:52 AM)

Does anyone else find Hoist's smile on that MP ad for BBTS slightly disturbing?

@  Bass X0 : (19 July 2017 - 11:39 AM)

In to the darkness, snuffing out the light, fighting for the things you know aren't right

Snuff out the light, claim your right, to a world of darkness!

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

isn't "Blessed by Satan" an oxymoron?

@  Dracula : (18 July 2017 - 05:11 PM)

basically the sunscreen has to be blessed by satan.

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2017 - 05:07 PM)

@Dracula what SPF do you nees to not get turned into dust in the sun?

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

That's typical summers for where I live. bleh

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

Isn't it fun when it's so humid, it feels like your eyeballs are sweating?

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2017 - 03:34 PM)

If only we were as progressive in Bea Arthur's day as we are now.

@  Rycochet : (18 July 2017 - 02:27 PM)

@  D.M : (18 July 2017 - 09:54 AM)

I wasn't starting a flame war. That's a real scientific term for natural occuriring sex change. ;) As for Anne Ramsey like actress - would make the show lot more fun. :p

@  Dracula : (18 July 2017 - 09:42 AM)

Let's please not continue this line of discussion. We obviously aren't mature enough to do so.

@  2017 : (18 July 2017 - 09:41 AM)

Thanks mods.

Pretty neat. Hopefully it won't be as difficult to acquire as the Starscream Skystirker.

Yeah - unlike Starscream this seems sort of random. "Hey, everyone loved Starscream last year - who can we make this year?.... Uh... Shockwave?"

Diggin that Shockwave. Not much for vehicles in general though [lack of space], so my eye was drawn to the Ninja Battle set and the SDCC red Jinx. Although I'll be just as willing to pick up the Sigma Six-ish movie Jinx if they go and make her.

I'd rather see them use one of the designs from the DD crossovers. (Different HISS model, but one they still use, I think?)

I guess that'd be too bland though

And Shockwave does have that tenuous link to GIJOE thanks to that weird old product catalogue

Doesn't fit the character IMO. Starscream made sense; this doesn't.

I'm just impressed that these toys don't look like dull crap like the first movie's. I mean, there are other colors than black, gray, and white! Amazing!

They should have repainted Ninja Combat Cruiser as Brawn.

I dig Shockwave there but its not really him. That said, the H.I.S.S. Tank design doesn't resemble any Transformer's alternate mode, so if it had to be that particular mold to be repainted, Shockwave is as good a character as any other.

Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.
