I just think a Judge going on and Jury Tampering, trying to make the Jury think a sex taffiker is innocent is sickening. *won't say why he did that as that goes in P&R*

@  Sabrblade : (20 January 2018 - 09:21 AM)

Heh, the schedules for my work weeks begin with Saturday

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2018 - 07:01 AM)

Thing about the US is... you can say that any time you want as much as you want. You're still going to get shot, but it might not be because you said that though.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 02:20 AM)

You just did.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 02:18 AM)

Can I just say that right now... I hate the USA?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

There are languages where the days are named for numbers and Sunday is "one". Like Arabic.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 01:31 AM)

Isn't it sort of a religious thing for Sunday to be the start of the week but most people just go with the first day they go to work for the week?

@  unitremover : (20 January 2018 - 01:02 AM)

I feel like I've known plenty of Americans who'd say Monday is the first day of the week.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

Personally Monday will always be the first day of the week for me. The notion that Sunday is somehow the first day of the week seems completely nonsensical to me.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

I'm fairly sure it is in Australia, but that tends to get blurred because of US influence.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:19 AM)

(It's Sunday here in the U.S.)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:18 AM)

Anyone here live in a country where Monday is considered the first day of the week?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 08:40 PM)

Maybe?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 05:56 PM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 04:54 PM)

What ya getting?

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Yay! My package from BBTS is in canada! I might even get it this week!

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 02:04 PM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 01:18 PM)

Buying a pre-built computer you should be okay.. It's just the individual parts that jumped huge in price.

@  Paladin : (17 January 2018 - 01:14 PM)

well all the idiots who invested in "bitcoin" will be selling theirs en masse to make ends meet so you might be able to find something cheap if you watch auctions.

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 12:59 PM)

Is now a good time to buy a computer? Or should I wait?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 12:01 PM)

HTS

They've got the wave 1 Prime deluxes and voyagers. Also deluxe Arcee and Ratchet, but both of them and Soundwave are sold out. Also, the available ones are preorders, but it says they ship in 7 to 9 days (pretty close to the "street date").

Ooo nice. I have already been checking most days. Arcee and Ratchet are wave 2 so probably a pre-stock rather than sold out.

They were in stock this afternoon. In the time it took me to put Ratchet in my cart and get to the shipping screen he sold out. Arcee lasted a couple hours longer.

Hmm, no free shipping though. Even with groupon (which was $15 for a $30 credit) it'll come out close to store prices. But still, nice to have peace of mind in these uncertain times.

Dammit, I was really considering ordering WJ and Megatron. I would have definitely gotten WJ and Soundwave had I found this in time. But I didn't order last night, and guess what - now you can only get Optimus and BB! Pretty much just like at the hugging store.

Dammit, Hasbro. You are hugging things up left and right.

So, to easily get the TFs I want, I always have to be ready to purchase right then? I guess this is more of a cases assortment complaint. More Wheeljacks and Soundwaves in a case when mean more available.

If I'm in a store and I see new Transformers, and I pass on them, and I come back in the morning and somebody else bought them first... I don't think that's Hasbro's fault. Pretty sure that's on me.

That's an entirely different argument. The way Hasbro's online store has always worked is you usually have to grab the new stuff when you see it, as it does move fast. I missed out on this stuff too, I expected the usual Wednesday appearance, but I'm not going to set up a scapegoat and start crying on an online forum cause of my screw up.

Besides, it's not like this jive will be EVERYWHERE in a few months and we'll all be hearing about the same "shelfwarming Ratchets" and all that.

But yeah, if you HAVE to have it NOW, be prepared to pay. Otherwise, wait a few weeks for EVERY BIG BOX RETAILER to start getting these toys out.

Indeed. I passe don picking the wave 1 guys up lats Saturday when they were right in front of me because they were at the Times Square TRU. That's the TRU that loves to have the higher prices, mostly likely so they can gouge the tourist shoppers. This is the first wave of a new line, released at the start of the year, the stuff is going to be everywhere in a month or two.
