Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Whilst there's understandable caution about making statements or claims that vaccines provide sterile immunity, data so far does support significant reductions in transmission. That tallies with infection being largely predicated on viral load. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-56211755 (Just as int...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

It is a chemical. Very dangerous that dihydrogen monoxide stuff -- https://www.dhmo.org/facts.html Beyond skepticism, would happily see most governments shut in an indoor stadium with the coke can (possibly milk carton by now) that would theoretically contain every molecule of covid in the world.

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

There is an edit button, unlike more primitive platforms. Yeah, ultimately I'm in the "protect society or stay away from it" camp and the same with people who are sudden converts to a nationalised health service if the worst happens but don't look after their health with diet, vaccinations, not smok...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

It might just be a case of people figuring it's not worth selling them, since some of the more common UT figures just aren't worth much. Especially if shipping costs are as high in the UK as they are here. The only loose Battle Ravage I remember stumbling on when I was finding my Command Ravage was...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

Yeah, Cybertron was a bit oversized though wouldn't necessarily say double... I've reacquired that Vector Prime and Starscream two pack and might do the same with Armada Wheeljack and Energon Ravage at some point. Seems a bit crazy the only examples of the latter coming out of eBay at the moment are...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

I think if you're not going near anyone who is at risk it's fair enough, but also impossible to know where we are in those chains (I know I have immediate colleagues who are vulnerable, for instance) -- plus being male our base blood clot risk in any given year is significantly lower than women, and...

Re: unicron Armada, reflector and catalog brochures, promo posters

As an aside, I never saw the Energon repaint of Unicron here. Were they plentiful in Canada? I remember the Energon repaint of Overload as Ultra Magnus being basically non-existent in the US while completely swamping the UK Loads shelf-warming here, most of them next to the Armada one that was stil...

Re: unicron Armada, reflector and catalog brochures, promo posters

Gut feel is that fewer early-twenty-somethings are at uni discovering that they want mint versions of the toys they had as kids, whereas twenty years ago fast internet as a concept and eBay were caught up in that. Not sure how many early-twenty-somethings had the same experience with action figures ...

Faking Filmation: another 80s and general retro crowdfund

This one focusing a bit on MOTU. What's particularly interesting is that this seems to be a roll of the dice to get past a legal injunction on releasing an already-complete fan animation, in the wider context of talking about other cartoons of the era. I've gone for the digital bundle since physical...

Anyone come across any customs or media of the Prime/Convoy prototypes?

It's not as simple as painting a cab blue, both modes are quite differently proportioned.

Re: unicron Armada, reflector and catalog brochures, promo posters

As for whether it's more sought after, I wouldn't necessarily assume that. If you were the target age in 2003, you might not have major financial commitments but also are less likely to be in the income bracket that 80s kids tend to be. Once collectors of a particular fandom start dropping off in n...

Re: unicron Armada, reflector and catalog brochures, promo posters

No, not the ancient prototype (I forget whether that was v1 or v2, there's one with small satellites as well, which IIRC was in one of the Generations photo books, probably the deluxe edition of the book) or the Neo-Unicron one, there've been multiple G1 style repaints of the Armada one. Amazon vari...

Re: unicron Armada, reflector and catalog brochures, promo posters

Actual sale prices on eBay are absolutely the way to go. Everything else is just speculation, unless you know local dealers who are honest (i.e. buy in at a fixed percentage of average eBay actual sale prices). With Armada Unicron, last time I looked the most desirable versions of the mould (apart f...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

I don't think it makes much difference. Pfizer have fiddled the testing slightly in terms of reporting figures that cast the best light (most effective age group etc) the same as others. Roughly speaking, for the two dose ones the first dose is about equivalent to having been infected (but without t...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

If you can still find, there's more than one 3P upgrade kit -- pretty sure the one I got is the Dr Wu one. The later Blitzwing worked better as the purple G2 Megs, and if I ever see one at a sane price will probably pick it up. https://tfsource.com/dr-wu/dw-p17-blitz/ https://i.imgur.com/Yp3nI0j.jpg

Not sure if the account I've just removed with a load of COVID denying bullshit was a bot or a person, but the phrase "face diaper" clinched it.
