@  wonko the sane? : (22 September 2018 - 01:53 PM)

So apparently some models of air-conditioner are on trays inside the case, so they can be removed for easy access to the internals. I did not know that two hours ago: and have since cleaned three. It's been a learning kind of day.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 September 2018 - 09:15 AM)

There's probably been a Pokedex-themed 3DS cover.

@  Noideaforaname : (21 September 2018 - 04:34 PM)

I still got that Pikachu Edition Gameboy Color from back in the day. Yellow and Blue and with Pikachu, Jigglypuff and Togepi on the screen.

Quote of the day: I either need bourbon or aspirin, and I'm pretty sure the liquor cabinet is closer than the medicine chest.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 September 2018 - 02:38 PM)

I don't recall any Pokedex themed DS or Game Boy, but plenty of Pokemon-themed ones. My favourite, and the one I've got myself, was the Pokemon Red/Blue themed 3DS with the swappable faceplates that came out around the time the original games were made available via digital download

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 September 2018 - 02:30 PM)

I'm fairly certain Nintendo has done Pokéball red and white, but I don't know about specific Pokédex colors.

@  Paladin : (21 September 2018 - 11:10 AM)

random thought: has Nintendo ever made a 3DS that looks like a Pokedex? because that seems like a GOLDMINE waiting to happen...

@  Nevermore : (21 September 2018 - 03:23 AM)

Wiigii! Titans Return Grotusque for only 60 Euros (actually 70 but I somehow had an eBay gift card for reasons that escape me) with free shipping from within my own country!

@  Whirl Maximus : (21 September 2018 - 03:02 AM)

That was the plan for Predators too with the Super Predators.

@  Waspinator : (21 September 2018 - 01:46 AM)

So, apparently in the new Predator movie, the Predators don't hunt us for honor or the challenge or anything like that, but because they're stealing human DNA to modify themselves. Congrats Hollywood, on making a monster far less cool and scary.

@  Pennpenn : (20 September 2018 - 08:46 AM)

I only started playing it recently so I don't know what it was like before. Actually surprised they haven't finished the story yet. Then again, unless they introduce another world it's pretty much just Maleficent and whatever the Foretellers are playing at left.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 September 2018 - 08:30 AM)

Geeze.. I reloaded up Kingdom Hearts X for the first time in a long time. That game has massivily inflated from when I played it when it first launced in the US.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 09:07 AM)

It's an annoying thing to have happen in any game. I'm hoping they actually finish releasing all the story mode parts before 3 comes out.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 06:24 AM)

Ahh. Hadn't played that in a long time.. Since before the PVP I think.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 04:33 AM)

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Specifically the PVP fights.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 04:31 AM)

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 03:13 AM)

Man, I love it when you've got limited attempts at something in a game, said game crashes at the end of the thing, so you lose the attempt but don't get any credit.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 08:44 PM)

I know. I'm back to the classic purple for the first time since the comic theme was introduced.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 08:32 PM)

Alright thanks, gonna be weird without the speech bubble boxes but I'll manage.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 07:59 PM)

Nope, ongoing problem for a bunch of us. The mods know, so... just hunker down and wait. In the mean time: changing themes will sort it out for a bit. Only the comic theme is affected.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 05:36 PM)

http://www.bigbadtoy... 02 REVISION 03

 

Expected to arrive in June.  $28 for Roadbuster alone; $58 for Roadbuster and Sky Byte together; $90 for a case of two Roadbusters, a Sky Byte, and a Springer.

 

Man, Roadbuster and Sky Byte are pretty!  At those prices, though, I think I'll wait for them to hit HTS or (ha!) retail.


Interested in getting TFSS 3.0 Carzap, Nacelle, or G2 Starscream for $50 plus shipping?  PM me if so.

Roadbuster's growing on me. It's not what I wanted, but I can't say no to an Autobot toy that has that many guns.

Guns and shoulder cannons should never be an either/or proposition.

Ordered.

I'm not super-thrilled with Roadbuster's head in pics and his legs are just a tad scrawny, but I love the original from childhood and need Whirl's classic partner.

Skybite's back looks like it remains just a bit kibble-ish but it's still a big improvement on the original's memorable but fairly terrible jumble of panels toy.

I'm not thrilled by BBTS's price but in this day and age, with Movie stuff ready to clog all shelf space, all Generations stuff is Must Preorder. And if I'm lucky enough to find it cheaper first, I'll cancel.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Yeah Sky-Byte alone would have me go "CLICK! ORDERED!". But I don't really want Roadbuster. Not that I hate the toy or the character, just not my cup o' tea.

I went ahead and preordered Roadbuster only.  Even though he's not really what I'd envisioned, he's a cool looking update of the figure.  I'm hoping that there will be a 3rd party add-on for him later down the road that will include a new head and even more weapons.  I don't mind Sky Byte, but I've never liked him enough to warrant purchasing any more versions of him beyond RID.

Waspinator and Rattrap are equal to the rest of their casemates and Rhinox was actually 2 to a case with one Double Dealer and one Sandstorm.

 

So this seems to be the first time.

 

Edit: Unless you mean Kickback too. Who was shortpacked. But then we'd also have to include Grimlock who was three to a case of four.

Nice to see a thread about this.  I was going to start one too.  Also Rattrap and Tankor are up for preorder too.  Why is Springer being shipped with Roadbuster and Sky Byte?  I figured they would have a figure from the previous wave and not a few waves back.

FoC Kickback?  ... not a Beast Generations figure.

 

I don't know if I would get this new Roadbuster if taken by himself, but since I got the new Whirl, I might as well.

Yeah, I didn't think he really fit either. But he does transform into an animal, which by the broad definition of this franchise makes him a Beast. Either way, Sky Byte here is the first Generations Animal figure since the start of the IDW tie ins that is shortpacked.

Not sure why some are complaining about the price: Hasbro officially upped the Voyager MSRP to $24.99 (assuming Walmart doesn't get greedy like they did last year and go a few bucks over), so I don't see the $4 premium on the set a huge deal (what with SkyByte being a one per case).

 

But more importantly, I think I'll wait until Brainstorm's wave, which will probably have both as carryovers and maybe even at a lower price for the set of three since everyone will be "over" roadbuster and skybyte by that point.

Is that already in effect? Because if so, then HTS hasn't gotten the memo, as they're still charging $20 even for Whirl, Rhinox and Doubledealer.
