Are there even enough toys of him to collect?

@  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

Shame about the deco

I'm going to hold off until we get proper colors.

Or if we don't no big loss.

In the colored version, it seems like it might be 3 tank things, not 2. 2 of them seem to have a robot mode of their own. Additionally, it looks like part of the original prototype has been removed, or at least not includded with the new color pics.

Honestly, it seems a bit of a mess.

the new pictures show the "parts" tank connecting to two official Hasbro PCCs as add on weapons ... the 3rd party central guy or "other tank from the grey pictures" isn't in any of the new ones

I think we're missing a tank. I don't see the smaller tank from the proto shots that has the robot chest plate and waist detail. The proto looked a lot better. I really liked the robot mode, but I was never crazy about the multiple vehicle idea.
How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

I don't think it's that. I think their biggest sin is painting it brown.

It's certainly not replacing the custom Fallen I bought, but if the price is low enough, it might make for an interesting all-new character.

I guess I'm the only one who likes it as a weapons pack for Heavytread. Oh well, I'm still waiting for TFC's WWII limbs for him and I have a feeling that they're probably cancelled considering we saw production prototypes in November and nothing since icon-screamer.gif.
