Make his fur a red and black flannel pattern

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:10 PM)

Bonus points if you can work in a red and black flannel pattern on his chest plate.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:09 PM)

Might as well make it cliched. Lumberjack moose male and aristocratic deer female.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Or their aristocratic deer.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:10 PM)

Thinking of making a pair of moose Transformer OCs, male and female. Thier a lovey dovy pair of lumberjacks

@  Paladin : (18 February 2019 - 06:56 PM)

they also have NOTORIOUSLY poor protection on their servers. do NOT keep a credit card on file there.

@  Telly : (18 February 2019 - 04:48 PM)

i just checked my past tfsource orders, and theres no sales tax charge

@  Arazyr : (18 February 2019 - 11:16 AM)

They haven't (yet, at least) on the stuff I currently have in my Stack. Haven't had them ship anything for a while, though, so I don't know if they will when I do...

@  Benbot : (18 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 February 2019 - 01:28 AM)

In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

@  Paladin : (17 February 2019 - 11:57 AM)

The cow was slaughtered in the abattoir.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 February 2019 - 08:53 AM)

It's not a pretty name: abattoir is literally just the french word for slaughterhouse.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 February 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Giving it a pretty name won't make it a pretty place.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 February 2019 - 02:45 AM)

I do believe there is an aphorism about the U.S.A. and yogurt being different because after 200 years the latter will have a culture.

@  Maruten : (16 February 2019 - 11:30 PM)

There's another word for "abattoir"?! Honestly you people, "slaughterhouse" is a bit on the nose.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 February 2019 - 10:09 PM)

I learned this week that the French-style term abattoir is prevalent in the UK/Commonwealth in place of where U.S.-American Anglophones would say "slaughterhouse". Fascinating.

@  MEDdMI : (16 February 2019 - 08:51 PM)

Nonsense. Everybody loves all my posts.

Oh, that makes more sense.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 February 2019 - 07:31 AM)

Haven't given it to him yet. Not sure when I will, but soon. Wah Wah is what he calls any vehicle with a siren, and the little bugger just LOVES firetrucks. So I got him a rescue bot heatwave.

@  repowers : (16 February 2019 - 02:41 AM)

I hope he said "You've given me a wah-wah"

Or you could come to canada, where bureaucracy is a publically funded art form! So garbage and used condoms trying to make a statement about something or other, not entirely sure what.

@  Nevermore : (14 February 2019 - 06:10 AM)

We've turned it into an art form.

Is Verbesserschlimmerung a change that was intented to make things worse but made them better instead?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 February 2019 - 07:35 AM)

We have a similar word in english "government".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:05 AM)

The meaning of this word is: A change that was intended as an improvement but ended up making things worse.

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

It's a portmanteau of "Verbesserung", which means "improvement", and "Verschlimmerung", which means "worsening".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

Your new German word for today: Verschlimmbesserung.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:17 PM)

Fortunately it's been long enough now that the possibility exists another label like Shout Factory or Arrow could pick it up and give it an updated release.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:16 PM)

It's the same with their Dawn of the Dead blu-ray, and several others

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:11 PM)

In Volcano's case it isn't so much a case just of amazon or eBay sellers... it looks like rather than releasing it directly, Fox licensed it out to Starz/Anchor Bay, and it's subsequently gone out of print

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 February 2019 - 01:28 PM)

There's Amazon sellers for you.

@  Telly : (12 February 2019 - 12:49 PM)

thought about buying volcano on bluray last night, until i saw the price on amazon: $135. the used ones arent much cheaper at $90. i know the 3p sellers can set any price they want, but come on. $90-$135 for a 20 year old movie that was only so-so?

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 05:12 AM)

GOt my hopes up there for a bit. Last I heard it was nebulously in 2019.

Because we have a dedicated HTS thread already, and I figure this is better than cluttering the forum with new threads every time something noteworthy happens in BBTS land.

 

To start with, I just received this e-mail regarding the previously-solicited Rattrap/Tankor/Crosscut preorder:

 

Hasbro has just informed us that the Deluxe Wave 03 Case assortment has been cancelled. This case contained Rattrap, Tankor and Crosscut. They have confirmed that all three figures will be released, but they will be spread over various future assortments. Rattrap and Tankor have been solicited in a new assortment, but Crosscut has been delayed and will be released in a future and currently unknown assortment. Due to this matter we have adjusted all existing preorders for this set of 3 to a set of 2. This new set of 2 will consist of Tankor and Rattrap only, and all existing preorders will receive this set for $31.99 respectively. Please note that the price per figure remains the same as it would for the original set of 3 figures (about $16 per figure). We apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause and we are hopeful that everyone will enjoy the new assortment variety.

 

Man, that Skids mold is cursed or something.  First the issues with Wave 1 of this year's Generations, now this.


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

And the hits keep on coming:

 

 

Hasbro has just informed us that the Deluxe Wave 05 Case assortment has been cancelled. This case contained Arcee, Chromia, Waspinator and Scoop. They have confirmed that Arcee and Chromia are still going to be released, but have been pushed to a future and currently unknown assortment. We have since been asked to remove the listing from our website until further notice, but your preorder will still remain on file. We truly apologize for this inconvenience.

As always please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns and our Customer Service department ([email protected]) will be happy to assist you. Thank you for your understanding and support to BigBadToyStore!

I was kind of wondering when exactly they were going to be putting all these figures out, since the AOE Deluxes are explicitly part of the Generations line.

Hopefully this means the lines will actually be released later and not a few slip out so they don't bother to ever have them really hit retail like the previous 3 movies.

Here is the listing for the mentioned set of Rattrap and Tankor. It's $31.99 on my preordered products page, as promised, but $39.99 if you go to order it now, which I guess means they're expecting a worse case assortment than before.

Also as promised, I still have a preorder listed for Arcee and Chromia.

Yeah I thought Hasbro had gone loco if they thought Generations would continue while AoE was going on. 

 

TakaraTomy didn't even bother trying.  :D

I actually pre-ordered Chromia and Arcee when the swerve/cosmos scare was going on thinking something like this was going to happen.

My BBTS preorder page for Arcee and Chromia shows "3rd Quarter 2014" now, but that's probably meaningless.

If they do still end up being easily available then this shouldn't be too much of a problem, but without being able to see into the future it is a bit worrying.

Wouldnt it make sense to just save all the molds from these two waves and release them after the movie crap ends? That way they didn't waste all that money on creating these toys for nothing?

The movie lines can felate Omega Supreme's rocket. That is the scale at which they suck for haphazardly causing things like this to happen.
