This is a completely ridiculous remark...EVERY TransFan knows that if faced with the choice of only getting ONE Alternator vs two because of lack of money--you don't pay your rent. They don't hand out those "3 Days to Pay or Quit" notices on your door because they want the rent on time...they want to give you 3 extra days so you can treat yourself at the store.

I thought everyone knew that?

My rent goes out by direct debit on payday. Pointlessness breeds pointlessness.

As for you first "post", you'll note the word "Most" there.

My half of the mortgage is about the only bill I have these days that I haven't figured out how to pay with direct deposit. Kudos to you! I love never seeing bills. lol.

There is something fundamentally wrong with the universe if someone who types "lol" is allowed a mortgage...

Thank you for making me feel not alone in despising "lol".

Not exactly my idea of cheap. HTS isn't going to be selling them at all then?

You want to wait and see what they'll cost in a month or two?

Well, after people realise how rubbish he is, he'll probably drop to about the price of a sandwich.

Eh? What? Star Convoy, you say?

I have too much faith in humanity, don't I?

Thumbs down

Is Big Bad Toy Store reliable? I've never purchased anything from them. I still can't believe I'm even THINKING about buying this $20 over Hasbro's asking price. Bad mold. Stupid Hasbro. And yet the completist in me cries out for it in my sleep. *whimper*

BBTS is one of the best online sites around, especially if you're in the U.S. since the domestic shipping costs are pretty low.

Yeah, Joel's a really good business man. I'd definitely rather see the extra $20 go to him over some scalper on ebay. Ordered it.

EDIT: That **** just made my day. You don't even know. Thanks, Nevs.

I'd LOVE to live in Europe. I spent a summer living in Paris, France (for school) back in college, and have been to 6 European countries in the couple of times I've traveled there. I wouldn't mind living in London, Paris, or Amsterdam. My better half and I have talked about moving to London, after we both finish our masters, to live for a few years. Los Angeles really can wear on a guy--the wheather is amazing, but the people (for the most part) are beyond shallow and hollow. Plus no one speaks English here anymore (sarcasm) so I'd probably feel more at "home" in London...haha.

You obviously have never lived over here and tried collecting Transformers toys.

True, I wasn't actively collecting when I was living there. I was more concerned about getting to class halfway sober after partying at the clubs all night. Not that I was always successful...but I can say that a great time was had by all.

ARGH....in the time it took me to make a business call, BBTS sold out. I think I'm cursed not to get this toy.

Londom was fantastic...during the single day I was there. If you're thinking about moving to England, try York. Amazing little town you only find in fairytales.

Back on topic, for a moment I was tempted to buy NP from BBTS, until I clicked on the link and saw what Nevermore's "cheap" price was. And now that I just checked, it's sold out.

It's almost funny how nearly everybody moans and bitches about Hasbro and Takara repainting moulds all the time, yet I've only come accross two, maybe five people max in all tf-associated boards that didn't want him.

Lots of fuss over another black Prime. And it's not like it's the best Prime mould.

Well, for me, it was the only situation that I knew would salvage the mold for me, since I'm a fan of RID Scourge. That's why I was so gung-ho about wanting it.
