@  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

I would have thought from the movie that he was at least 10 or 11. But Headmasters is set 6 years later, right? And he seems younger than he does in the movie.

10 or so. Head Masters is only a year later than Season 3/2010 in the Japanese continuity.

From what I've seen, they've never explained Daniel's age disparity with The Movie being in 2005 and 2010 (the Japanese version of the third season) being in, well, 2010.

either that or in stasis until they got to that other planet in headmasters and set up a space bridge portal...

Space Bridges are super fast and convenient and so are Robot Trains. But interstellar travel never really seemed to take that long in Transformers anyway.

Okay, this is peculiar...I remember Quez reading it in one of the timelines, I remember transcribing it, and there's an invisible-ified note about it on Daniel's page on the wiki...but I can't for the life of me find where we originally posted it. Frustrating!

This is the thing. I asked this before on the Wiki and couldn't get an answer. It *doesn't* appear to be in either of the timelines, so far as I can see. One was in the Kiss Players book, which covered all of history, the other was on the Atari/Autorooper packaging, which I *think* just covered the events of KP itself - the J-G1 timeline on the wiki is both of those timelines put together.

Aha! Found it!

We were starting to think we were crazy too, since we looked through both timelines and couldn't find anything.

And the reason is because it's not in the timeline proper, but in the "Encyclopedia" section of the Doctor Bronner-like printing all over the Autrooper's packaging.

Under "Daniel", it says "A young American boy whom Hot Rodimus befriended on Earth before the Unicron War. When Transformers and humanity were at odds, he escaped to space with his father Spike and others. There, he was involved in an accident and is currently in cold sleep."

Maybe it was a brain injury.

(Given how geeky the KP timeline is, it's probably the injury from when he was chomped by a robot dinosaur.)
