Ooooohhh, okay. I completely misunderstood.

How long has this pile been accumulating?
A little over 3 years, at least. It's not everything I've acquired in that time span though. For completely arbitrary reasons, some things have been opened and found space for.

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Kingdom Megatron (BW): Having never owned any of the previous renditions of BW Megatron's T-Rex form, I figured I had to snag this one today when I found it. Really solid representation of the character. Transformation and posability seem pretty good. Feels a little small for a Leader, in my view. ...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

Oh, there's lots of ways to do it. Obviously you could do the usual subgroups or toyline groupings, but the sky's the limit, really. I tried color coding this summer, which is a neat effect. If the shelf is six feet wide, you could order them from shortest to tallest. If you've got multiple copies ...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

So... having added a 6ft stretch of shelving to a wall, I now have room to open and put out stuff I've had sitting around in boxes. Stuff that's been piling up since at least as far back as Fall 2017. I still need to figure out what gets priority for hitting the shelf, what gets skipped for now and ...

Hard Hero Unicron Statue: I've been wanting one of these since it was revealed as a Botcon exclusive back in 2002 and I finally managed to acquire one recently. It's as big, stupid and cool as I expected. Unfortunately it has to remain boxed up as I nowhere approaching a suitable place for it, espe...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

All this talk of Misfire is reminding me I have him and a bunch of other Titans Return stuff still in it's packaging sitting in a box or two because I have nowhere to put them. I really need to go through that stuff and see what I have and if I can make room for it anywhere I've got a lot of time f...

Smallest Transforming Soundwave - After being reminded of the line's existence by the recent World's Smallest versions of Prime, Bee and Starscream, I went decided to look for some of the old Smallest Transforming stuff from back around 03. Finally got a Soundwave. It's actually a little bit bigger ...

Re: [The video game thread]

While I still haven't gotten the one I really want to get(Macross Delta. Not because it's horribly expensive, but because only half the game is on the cart. The rest of it is DLC. It's free, but I don't know if a US PSN account will be able to download Japanese PSN DLC). Not sure how helpful this i...

Kit-Kats are my preferred chocolately treat. I have to give myself primary consideration as I rarely have trick-or-treaters and have to eat the candy all myself. That should be the primary litmus test for Halloween candy in general and this year especially: Is it something that'll get eaten if ther...

Re: [The video game thread]

Speaking of good, old games, I'm currently playing Skyrim for the first time ever. Good game once I found the factions that weren't just straight up asking me to participate in race wars. Astoundingly, I have yet to play Skyrim. Got a copy for PS4 around here, haven't gotten around to it. Hell, I'm...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Earthrise Doubledealer Snagged one this morning out of a mix of surprise at seeing one and having a certain affinity for the triplechanging weirdo. He is very much just a modern take on the original, minus the powermaster gimmick. Robot mode has got the usual amount of posability one has come to ex...

Then, Speaker Pelosi said that's a bad idea, because Trump's morbidly obese, which increases risks of that drug. ...good? She probably shouldn't have warned him, though. I think Pelosi is being a bit brilliant here. Given Trump's nature and the way he tends to react to things, he'll probably A) Ins...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Perhaps the most annoying thing about these restrictions is going to the supermarket, finding the aisle I want to go down is one-way the wrong way, going through the next aisle over so I can get to the right end of my desired aisle, and running into someone going the wrong way down that aisle. Exac...

Omega came out towards the end of last year. My plan was to get him then, but things went kind of wahooni-shaped.
Really? Hmmm... shows how close I've been paying attention to release schedules. Damn

War for Cybertron SIEGE Omega Supreme:
I didn't know he was out yet. He's one of the few on my 'to get' list as soon as I can reasonably spare that money. Don't think I have the reasonable space for him but that hasn't stopped my purchases before

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

As my first TF purchase in months, I got myself a Siege Jetfire. Because they finally gave us a proper damn Skyfire. And I'd say they nailed it. Suitably big, looks like the old animation model in both modes, got the changing faction symbol gimmick. Only transformed it back and forth once so far but...

Re: [The video game thread]

Smash Bros Ultimate is great. If you've not played Breath of the Wild yet you gotta get that game. I'd recommend Mario and Pokemon also. I'm not touching Pokemon. I managed to avoid falling into that pit when I was younger, gonna continue trying to avoid it now. I keep hearing good things about Bot...
