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?!?"?

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.

Some of the supermarkets have ok-ish sushi if I'm desperate. The legit Japanese sushi place is a sometimes deal due to price. The buffet is a good middle ground, but even for takeout we refuse to go there until the pandemic is over. I can also make my own, but effort.

I know it's nowhere near as good as getting it from a sit-down restaurant or even takeout, but I bought some frozen teriyaki chicken and frozen white rice last week at Walmart and I'm looking forward to whenever I eventually have them because I already know I like this brand, I've a few of their frozen Chinese and Japanese dishes and I do think they're generally in the upper-tier of 'frozen Asian dishes', especially compared to shit like this:

Fun fact: Those are literally chicken nuggets. Like the actual ingredients calls them that.

it's $1.24 for chicken nuggets, rice, sauce, and the various accoutrements

 

what do you think about the quality of the nuggets?

The lower the cost, the greater the proportion of the meal that's pure salt.

not really.

 

the banquet meal has 520 mg of sodium and innovasian's sweet and sour chicken has 430 mg per serving. not that much different tbh. plus the innovasian one is just the chicken, you're probably gonna want one of their side dishes with it and that can vary from no extra sodium (the plain white rice) to an additional 800 mg (the chicken fried rice, which is technically considered another entrée and not a side dish but come on)

I buy a brand of frozen chicken fried rice that's six bags per box. They're meant to be eaten as side dishes but I eat them as a snack instead because they're microwaved in three minutes.

I kinda like the Taipei little frozen Asian dishes that basically come in ice cream tubs. They're not like high-tier frozen food or anything (again they're like $2.50) but they're ok little microwaved fried rice things.

*takes notes*

 

I haven't paid enough attention to these things because there's multiple good Chinese takeout restaurants near my neighborhood. It would probably be good to have something in the freezer for emergencies.

 

Does anybody make something that's actually a whole dinner's worth of calories and not just "part of a balanced meal" if paired with some other things I'm never actually going to make with it?

Apparently there was an official tie-in involving Sanrio characters and Kancolle's wacky animal mascots.

Also, I feel like I've become this site's resident Kancolle person.
