Ok, I can't find the "Savage on a Ravage" pic that soneone pisted. Can anyone link me to it?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 September 2017 - 12:47 PM)

I'm also sure you don't sparkle like a disco ball, otherwise someone woulda run you over by now.

@  Dracula : (21 September 2017 - 12:40 PM)

anyway I don't die in sunlight, I just get tired.

@  Dracula : (21 September 2017 - 12:40 PM)

correct

@  wonko the sane? : (21 September 2017 - 11:46 AM)

I'm pretty sure most vampires would cause a gremlin infestation just for the giggles.

@  Noideaforaname : (21 September 2017 - 11:42 AM)

Hmm, a vampire would have a hell of a hard time getting rid of a Gremlin infestation, wouldn't he?

@  OrionPax44 : (21 September 2017 - 11:13 AM)

Well then there's yellowing but isn't that all of them. I like to leave all my TF's in a hot car all day long to let all their joints turn to jelly.

don't get any water on your trypticon, and don't feed him after midnight.

I've had mine for two weeks with no problems. Just don't be a hamfist with it.

@Robowang I have one somewhere and I can send it to you. Don't worry about it. Just let me find it

@  Bass X0 : (20 September 2017 - 04:43 PM)

Sometime last week, I purchased Hasbro Windblade online then a day or two later, Takara Windblade was announced for only £4.99 more making me instantly regret buying Hasbro's Windblade. Guess I'll be giving Hasbro Windblade to my nephew for Christmas then.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 02:24 PM)

That whole flat-rate shipping thing makes the math easy.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 02:23 PM)

4 bucks

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:15 PM)

Hmm. How much is shipping from BBTS?

@  NightViper : (20 September 2017 - 02:09 PM)

Set of the four is still $22 at BBTS

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:00 PM)

Ramhorn is currently available from a third party seller via Amazon for $27.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 11:47 AM)

Anybody have the TR PM OP trading card they don't want? I lost mine! Will pay you for it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (20 September 2017 - 11:35 AM)

If you don't need her I'll take her off ya.

@  BlackMax : (20 September 2017 - 10:04 AM)

When I get that power-batteryOptimus I swear I will carry it everywhere. It'll be like having a useful tool AND being six years old again all at once.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 09:58 AM)

I guess he's gone now. Oh well.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I saw Ramhorn all over ebay for $16 a week ago or so.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 09:02 AM)

Just ordered Arcee.  I don't need her.  But she's pink.  And a robot.  A combination I love.

@  Darknova4life : (20 September 2017 - 08:57 AM)

@ Robowang, Where is TR Ramhorn available for $16?

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 07:31 AM)

Besides spotty, this is the first time I've consistently seen reships of older waves months after the next 2/3 waves show up.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 September 2017 - 07:29 AM)

No kidding spotty. Haven't seen of the recent waves, and I desperately want a seaspray for my brother.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 07:05 AM)

Distribution is so spotty these days that I've given in and just started ordering everything. I'm probably going to wind up with a $16 Ramhorn, too.

@  MidnightFox : (19 September 2017 - 08:51 PM)

So they've been out at regular retail hit and miss for awhile.

@  MidnightFox : (19 September 2017 - 08:50 PM)

I picked up Misfire at a Target in Mississippi in mid-August.

@  Shrug : (19 September 2017 - 05:09 PM)

I think so. I checked his post history just now and he mentions buying something in North Carolina

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 September 2017 - 05:04 PM)

A U.S. Walmart?

@  Shrug : (19 September 2017 - 04:41 PM)

Saw someone found Misfire's wave at Walmart on Reddit. First normal retail sighting I've heard. I'm more hopeful now.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 September 2017 - 04:04 PM)

I'm praying I will be able to find Misfire and Slugslinger at brick and mortar somehow.

@  Xellos : (19 September 2017 - 03:22 PM)

Getting the set of 3, myself. Figure I'll keep Hot Rod in package (still my fave character), and give Kup to my nephew to help expand his current fascination with Transformers.

@  Telly : (19 September 2017 - 11:56 AM)

i got slugslinger for $30 from amazon as well. i can imagine thatll be the standard price at most places since theyll jack up the price to cover having all those kup and hot rods sitting in their stores

@  Robowang : (19 September 2017 - 08:16 AM)

Yes, I bought the $30 one on Amazon. I'd rather just pay the $30 than pay $60 and be stuck with an extra Hot Rod and Kup I can't sell.

@  Robowang : (19 September 2017 - 07:34 AM)

Slugslinger, Misfire, and Triggerhappy look amazing together. Best of Titans Return, as far as I'm concerned.

@  Noideaforaname : (18 September 2017 - 11:32 PM)

gads, why is this site so bad at loading at times?

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 September 2017 - 08:29 PM)

Thank you Hasbro for having never reissued the 2011 City Strike Destro figure...already at $32 with a week left.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 September 2017 - 07:47 PM)

Asking someone which year of "university" they're in seems so much more sophisticated than asking which year of "college" they're in.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 September 2017 - 09:04 PM)

Hooray! It only took 8 years, but laika finally learned to NOT play with the striped kitty!

@  Bass X0 : (15 September 2017 - 04:38 PM)

It was "Take Your Laserbeak To Work Day".... well, for me it was anyway. I was getting bored of being on hold when I made calls, so wanted something to relieve the boredom.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 September 2017 - 04:25 PM)

Can you hear me now? *CRACK*

I'm in the middle of Ico HD Remix.

I'll have to get over how horrid the camera is in Xenoblade, though. Last time I played it I got seasick while going through sub quests and swinging the camera around. Uck.

I've picked this up mainly because I'm afraid of availability. It was nearly a miracle it came over to the US at all. It's only available at GameStop or online. Not too many copies were probably made...

It's a game I'm interested in playing though, so I have a copy. The Art book was a nice bonus I didn't even know about.

Played only a little of it to test it out. Then decided to hold off till I got a Wii Classic Controller. (which I now have)

Still I need to beat Tales of Graces F before I move on to another RPG.

It's a secret to everybody

Huh, I didn't even know you could use the classic controller. I've gotten so comfortable using the wiimote/nunchuck, though, I can't imagine shifting over now.

Interesting little article on the whole "It should have been on a HD system" argument.

I'm not saying the article is right, wrong.. or even correct.. But it is an interesting read and may have some points.

Just started really playing. Wow.. First few levels when you have two or three skills, you think... "Oh wow.. combat is slow." heheheh.. "Guess I was wrong on that. Also the number of quests is mind boggling!

Yeah, if you've got any form of quest OCD, you won't have any problem with levels as the game proceeds. If anything it might start feeling too easy.

RISE FROM THE DEAD. Sorry, did a search for the appropriate thread rather than make a new one. This has recently hit my radar and I'm debating picking up a copy since my local Gamestop still has some.

I'm hearing a LOT of positive things, but trust the gamers here more than what gets said at a gaming review site. Is this something I should invest $50 into?

I say go for it... as a Matter of Fact I need to see what it looks like on a Wii U


And this game in many cases is arguably as good looking as the HD counterparts.

And don't let the combat system fool you at first. At first it may seem slow.. but soon it's very fast paced.

It's a great game, but if you have quest-completion OCD this game will drive you crazy and take forever to play. I end up playing it for days on end and then take months-long breaks before going back. I still haven't finished it icon-ball.gif

It's not perfect, but it's darn near close. I adore the voicework, and I love any game that actually changes the character's appearance when you change their armor.
Really my only complaint is with the quest system. I don't like how it loads you up with so many "kill x amount of x monster" quests, and it's almost impossible to find specific NPCs when you need to. It will tell you their schedule and general location, but you're on your own after that.


Oh, and the music is generally GREAT. I love the daytime theme on the leg plains.

I would say definitely pick up this game, with a caveat if you're OCD about completing everything this game has to offer. While the game excels in the most part in making it easy to find even the rarest items, it can still become maddeningly hard to find certain items, which could leave you hanging to complete the game's biggest sidequest. (A situation I am sadly in, and contemplating restarting over)

While the game does give you a lot of the 'find/kill so many of x' quests, keeping up on them along with all the other sidequests to a reasonable degree is a good way to assure you stay at an acceptable level for the game.

It took a little getting used to, but I do like the combat system. It's very similar to FFXII, but minus the complex gambits and with a little more control and a few other tweaks I won't go into due to possible spoilers icon-hotrod.gif

But that aside, this is still a fantastic RPG that deserves playing if you are even a casual fan of the genre

When you find yourself standing on the brink of surrender, know that many in the past faced trials such as your own, but overcame them with their great conviction.
No matter the greatness of your desperation, the failures of your efforts, or the injustice of your treatment, at least a few men have stared into the same challenges and emerged victorious from these tests.
Such men are not only a great source of inspiration, but also the very foundation upon which modern society rests.

20 hours in, just out of the mines, game is amazing.

Also, would you think it's worth it to buy a second, sealed copy for collector's purposes? I know the games value on the secondary market is already remarkably high.
