@  Telly : (23 April 2017 - 02:59 AM)

looks the same to me. maybe it looks different cause its smaller?

Revengeance

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2017 - 01:33 AM)

Some people say revenge is sweet. Others say revenge is a dish best served cold. So basically, revenge is ice cream.

'Sides, we all know the best G.I. Joe movie is Street Fighter, even if people haven't realized it yet.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (22 April 2017 - 05:39 PM)

I thought it was... okay. Okay as a movie, kinda fun, but not quite really feeling the G.I. Joe. I heard the sequel fixed that, but I've yet to see it.

@  Daith : (22 April 2017 - 05:26 PM)

Not sure about others but tried too hard to mainstream the idea to the public, making Baroness and the future Cobra Commander Duke's ex fiance and her brother was stupid and convoluted, and the power armor was a bit dumb

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 April 2017 - 05:14 PM)

What's the general opinion here about G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra?

@  Telly : (22 April 2017 - 01:38 PM)

"Walls of 'bee". walmart will be changing their name during movie time. they will now be called "walbee"

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 April 2017 - 12:49 PM)

I'm pretty sure even Hasbro reps have admitted that they went overboard with Bee repaints.

@  Rycochet : (22 April 2017 - 12:34 PM)

Parents/retailers want them, it's cost effective to produce them, therefore they get made. Walls of 'bee may not be what we want to see, but here we are.

@  Bass X0 : (22 April 2017 - 12:29 PM)

That still doesn't justify all the barely repainted Bumblebee and Optimus Prime toys in slightly different shades of their standard color scheme.

@  Rycochet : (22 April 2017 - 12:26 PM)

The movie toylines are a necessary evil at this point, they help us get nice things so I can tolerate them.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 April 2017 - 12:19 PM)

Eh, I'm more indifferent to the movies than angry.

@  Evac : (22 April 2017 - 12:04 PM)

Also, I highly doubt that. Judging by how some TR stuff hasn't been released yet (including Trypticon) and they're hyping up PotP for next year, what I'm assuming we'll see is Generations, Movieverse and RID/whatever the next cartoon is running alongside each other.

@  Evac : (22 April 2017 - 12:02 PM)

There's been a thread in General (as well as some threads on other sites) about a potential credit card security problem that may have arisen from TCC's online transactions:
http://www.allspark....showtopic=84493

The Club released a statement in an email and over their social networks (though I can't seem to find a direct link):
QUOTE
We posted statements through various Social networks but I wanted to make sure, due to all the comments, that a statement was posted here as well...

Just to let everyone know, we upgraded our online security systems as we understand that credit card theft is a growing problem in the U.S. Online security is a serious business and Fun Publications takes it seriously. We have implemented an ongoing review process of these security systems so that as internet thieves become more sophisticated, so will our defense systems. If you have any concerns, please let us know. When you order from anyone on any kind of device, make sure that https starts the url. This means it is under a secure socket layer and is encrypted during transmission. Additionally all information in our database is encrypted under a 256K algorithm.

We have been following the talk regarding the fraud problems but we haven't confirmed how many, if any, were on our end. This upgrade was a precautionary measure. Fraud can come from many sources and it is difficult to determine with 100% certainty what happened in those cases. We are dedicated to solving any problems and will do whatever is necessary to make shopping with the Club a secure experience.

If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us 1-800-772-6673

We wanted to make sure people here were aware that there MAY be an issue with credit cards used at the Club's online store or for Botcon registration, and that it would be a good idea to keep an eye on your credit card statements for suspicious activity. If you find some, and you've bought anything from the Club in the past year or so, please report the issue to the Club to help them figure out if it's related to their services. They won't be able to help anyone if people don't report the issues to them directly.

I should mention the theft that happened in the first week of January. I ordered G2 Ramjet and a club membership last year. Come new years, someone tried using my credit card in Madrid.

My wife and I had no idea where it could have been from. We use the card, but internet-wise most payments were through paypal or with a few trusted companies like BBTS and Robot Kingdom.

You should still contact the Club to let them know about it so they can look into it. (Sorry, I can't recall if you said in the other thread whether you had or not.)

If you've not had any suspicious activity on your credit card statements, probably not? If it was that long ago, your credit card company is probably going to give you a new card soon anyway (if they haven't already). They're only good for a couple of years.

I do not, and I've been a member the whole time this has been unfolding. Still got it somewhere? Can you copy/paste to this thread?

Fortunately, the card I used for BotCon/member reg last year expired and has been replaced with a new date/security code, so I think I dodged the bullet.

That's exactly where and when my card, which I have used with the club, was compromised. A charge from EL CORTE INGLES MADRID ES posted to my account 03 January 2012.
