I dunno if to call them the worst salesperson ever or the best.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2021 - 01:33 PM)

They must not have really wanted to sell you anything.

@  Sabrblade : (16 April 2021 - 09:19 AM)

This just happened to be the first time one ever gave up and walked away immediately after ringing the bell. Like, no patience at all or something.

@  Sabrblade : (16 April 2021 - 09:17 AM)

Covid didn't stop salespeople from coming to my neighborhood. They are still a consistent annoyance.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 April 2021 - 08:16 AM)

Random like "Why does god allow terrible things?" or random like "You can see them too?!?"?

@  Echowarrior : (16 April 2021 - 07:36 AM)

And yet, I still have to deal with random idiots on the street asking me random questions.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 April 2021 - 04:04 PM)

door to door salesmen (or those offering religion) certainly are one of the things lost to COVID that I've missed the least

@  Sabrblade : (15 April 2021 - 10:07 AM)

They rang the bell and were walking away before I even got to the door mere seconds later.

@  Sabrblade : (15 April 2021 - 10:06 AM)

I just got ding-dong-ditched by a salesperson.

@  Donocropolis : (13 April 2021 - 07:25 AM)

A comic, yes, but we need a figure!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 April 2021 - 06:27 AM)

No.. It's Tiberious Maximus... And there is a comic with such already. :D

@  Donocropolis : (12 April 2021 - 11:15 AM)

Yes. Color it like the Energon version of Unicron. Also, give us Fortress Tiberious.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 April 2021 - 09:49 AM)

Great. Now I want a borg cube unicron...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (12 April 2021 - 09:00 AM)

We still need Transformers x Star Trek toy.

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 April 2021 - 05:39 AM)

I saw most of them at retail at TRU, but that's not an option in the US anymore.

Dibs on naming the Ark robot Arkonus.

@  Kalidor : (11 April 2021 - 09:48 PM)

The only Titan figure I ever saw at retail was Trypticon at Ollie's

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 April 2021 - 09:12 PM)

Robosen Prime has market crossover with not just the toy collectors, but robotics enthusiasts quite willing to pay that price for a product like this.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 April 2021 - 08:33 PM)

One of my two local TRUs will stock exactly ONE titan at a time. It usually ends up "clearanced" for about 20 bucks off cause no one is willing to pay for at full price OR discounted.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 April 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Most stores don't seem to want to stock Commanders or Titans, never mind Unicron.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 April 2021 - 07:55 PM)

I wonder if Unicron going to crowdfuning wasn't just a price issue but also stores not wanting to stock and transport something so huge.

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 April 2021 - 07:47 PM)

It is, although this thing could also be considered a STEM educational tool

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 April 2021 - 07:33 PM)

Doesn't change the fact that, for most people, $700 is a pretty hefty investment for a toy.

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 April 2021 - 07:17 PM)

I dunno, $700 doesn't seem that bad for what it does. Some of those Masterpiece figures seem to go for at least half that price, and they don't have any actual robots or even electronics.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 April 2021 - 05:35 PM)

Not to mention wallet-shattering.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (11 April 2021 - 04:30 PM)

It's a jargon-shattering figure.

@  Kalidor : (10 April 2021 - 08:50 PM)

The licensed Optimus Prime that transforms itself is the appropriate usage of the term "Third Party"

@  Donocropolis : (10 April 2021 - 08:24 AM)

That Optimus isn't built by Hasbro, only licensed. The company that makes it has been making similar robots for years, so no crowdfundng required.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 April 2021 - 08:05 AM)

Apparently they're selling one for 74 and a half thousand dollars.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 April 2021 - 08:01 AM)

We could write boston dynamics and ask?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 April 2021 - 07:59 AM)

Granted, I'm not sure how much robots with elaborate movement tend to go for.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 April 2021 - 07:56 AM)

I think with actual robotics it was easier to justify selling it at a high cost, compared to an unusually large action figure.

I've always wanted to try deep dish pizza but how do you even it a pizza with slices that thick?

 

Also, people have argued that deep dish pizza is actually a casserole.

Well you eat the pizza cake with a knife and fork like a regular cake.

 

I think I've only had deep dish once when I was like 14 and I'm pretty sure I just ate it with my hands like a normal pizza.

Eating pizza with a fork and knife feels wrong.

It's not that weird. Certainly more mechanically feasible with some pizzas.


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

It would feel less wrong if it was a fancy gourmet pizza.

Is this where I mention that literally every Italian source says to eat pizza (in formal settings, like a restaurant) with a knife and fork?

Real Italian pizza is so good if you grab the lucky slice that got a topping on it.

Deep dish pizza can indeed be eaten with hands. I love the kind that has the sauce on top. Sometimes I'm lazy and eat ramen with a fork instead of chopsticks, or sushi with fingers, it does feel a bit wrong.

That dude was actually an infamous troll on the Super Mario Boards and the Mario Wiki because he would literally keep trying to sneak back in after getting perm-banned. IIRC he joined in 2008 (so before I joined with my first [and now perm-banned] account) and was still trying to sneak back in like four years later.

 

Of course, who knows if he really was a troll considering that he even did his whole schtick about MARIO BEING ITALIAN REAL ITALIAN STOP DENYING HIS ITALIAN NATURE and his various other quirks (he was also super religious like 'literally a hugging geocentrist probably would seem crazy to the WBC' level of religious) off-site as well.

Isn't sushi meant to be eaten with fingers or is that completely wrong?

It's been my experience that the weirdly religious fans of a videogame aimed at kids, tend to be Sonic fans.

dude also had an account where he pretended to be some japanese guy named mr. moto who literally could not type the letter l

 

it's so dumb and racist it went right around to being hilarious because how the hug would the lack of an l/r distinction when speaking japanese lead to someone being physically incapable of typing the damn letter 'l'?

You can eat sushi with fingers, but chopsticks are the "proper" method. Especially if you're sharing a plate with someone, it's considered unhygienic. Like double dipping. I don't personally care if it's with someone I know with clean hands.
