It's completely pointless... whch is exactly the point. Hundreds of workers showing up 50 minutes before their shift is over.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2018 - 02:49 PM)

We're on strike until midnight tomorrow (Tuesday->Wednesday). Which means I will clock in at midnight and work until my shift is over... 50 minutes later.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2018 - 02:48 PM)

Hahaha, awesome.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 December 2018 - 05:34 AM)

But is anything killing you softly?

@  Pennpenn : (09 December 2018 - 03:03 AM)

Oh don't be ridiculous. Some things are killing us quickly!

@  Rodimus Supreme : (08 December 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Isn't everything just killing us all slowly?...

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2018 - 09:23 PM)

Except the planet of junk actually fosters life, as opposed to the garbage patch which is just killing us all slowly.

@  RichardT1977 : (08 December 2018 - 11:11 AM)

I realized the other day that the Planet of Junk/Junkion is the interstellar counterpart to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

@  Waspinator : (07 December 2018 - 11:50 PM)

The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again. In one Age, called the Third Age by some, an Age yet to come, an Age long past, a wind rose in the Mountains of Mist. The wind was not the beginning. There are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of the Wheel of Time. But it was a beginning.

Turning, turning, turning through the years. Minutes into hours, and the hours into years. Nothing changes, nothing ever can. Round about the roundabout. Round and round and back where you began!

@  Pennpenn : (07 December 2018 - 06:56 PM)

The change was you got something off your wishlist. Be happy about that if nothing else!

@  wonko the sane? : (07 December 2018 - 02:09 PM)

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 08:05 AM)

Oh for cryin' out loud, the yellow part on the back hinge of my TR Weirdwolf broke. Bleh. At least the red is still there I guess.

Man, I still haven't gotten past Rock Tunnel.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 03:28 AM)

You know nothing.. NOTHING! Eevee is our lord and savior! He will give us the cuteness we need! ;) No seriously.. Both Pika and Eevee in the games are way OP and Eevee can learn elemental moves to replace evolving.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2018 - 03:22 AM)

It's cute, what other point does it need?

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 03:17 AM)

I can get Pikachu not evolving, the species has had decades of not evolving. But Eevee without evolution seems... pointless?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 03:15 AM)

Neither can Pikachu... And you don't need Eevee to evolve!

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2018 - 03:15 AM)

Neither of them can evolve as starters.

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 02:30 AM)

Also damn it my mouse wheel broke. What a pisser.

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 02:30 AM)

It can't evolve.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 02:29 AM)

How dare you! You KNOW Eevee is the obvious choice!

@  wonko the sane? : (05 December 2018 - 05:48 PM)

Finished mine a few days ago, and just bought myself (I really shouldn't have, but did anyway.) let's go pikachu with the pokeball.

@  Cybersnark : (05 December 2018 - 03:47 PM)

Mostly. There's a book en route to my mom's house from the UK and I don't know if it'll arrive before January.

Christmas shopping: complete.

@  RichardT1977 : (05 December 2018 - 12:37 PM)

(which would lead to a bunch of bad jokes about him selling a line of cashews, almonds, and pecans)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 December 2018 - 12:37 PM)

That would make sense per the precedent of Kamen Rider OOO ("Kamen Raidā Ōzu").

@  RichardT1977 : (05 December 2018 - 12:35 PM)

Wouldn't it be pronounced "Kamen Rider D's"?

Usually pretty much everythign is shown publicly with pics.

Been waiting for this press release to start toy fair running.

Wish it was more interesting. Beast Hunters are super old news and Contructibots are a good idea executed in the most derivitive and boring way imaginable to me. No interest there.

Not too disapointed that the press release is a snore. I'm fairly sure there will be some new BH stuff and fairly hopefull there'll be some new Generations stuff to see this weekend. (Comic packs I hope. I wonder what the chances of a 3rd wave of Data Disks are?)


-ZacWilliam, I wonder if the Blizzard about to obliterate us here on the East Coast will get in the way of Hasbro toy fair coverage. I've really been dieing to see new stuff.

I'm wondering as NY will likely have at least a foot of snow. I know I'm probably going to be buried in 2 feet. If all this happens I won't be able to provide coverage.

I'm hoping that they some how push it back to next weekend.

No.

Toy Fair is the place where they show all the big upcoming stuff to the Retail buyers to get the toys into stores. Not doing that to save reveals for "the fans" would be a terrible idea buisness wise.


-ZacWilliam, sure we se new stuff at Botcon that wasn't at toyfair but it's ussually stuff from much further down the line to the point that it wouldn't be available to show at Toy Fair yet.

Is there any way you can head into the city now? If you have to be snowed in a blizzard you might as well be snowed in Toy Fair. icon-arcee.gif

Joking, but this is a concern coverage wise.

Hasbro's official Transformers Facebook page has promised pics/coverage. I wonder if they have the official image packets of the reveals if they'd still post those even if the Blizzard closes Toy Fair.


-ZacWilliam, not sure what the proceedure/likelyhood of cancellation-rescheduling is. Ususally these things are big presentations and the venues well booked, I'm not sure if rescheduling is possible. Hopefully it will work out. (I wanna see new toys! icon-arcee.gif ) We'll see...

We've gotten some pretty good reveals in the past. Generations Straxus/Darkmount comes to mind.
We also often see stuff on display that we've only gotten listings/blurry photos of before.

I personally have never known Hasbro to delay an event, regardless of the weather, so honestly, if you can't make it in on Saturday afternoon, it's likely there won't be an alternative.

Personally, I feel worse for the Mommy Bloggers: their appointment's usually right before ours. At least we'll have a few hours to get shoveled out, since the snow's due to end in the metro NY area by 9 AM Saturday. We'll see!
