Re: [The video game thread]

Picked up some other stuff. In order: Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter: The thing that made me get this game was more curiosity than anything. I watched a walkthrough on the most recent game from the company that made this one, Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One , and thought, ‘Hey, that’s a cool gam...

Re: [The video game thread]

For years, the only version of Mechwarrior I played was the old, old PC version, so all I was really used to was keyboard controls. You could torso twist, but it wasn't steering two halves of the same body at the same time. I also discovered that the most dangerous mech in the whole game was the Sha...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Rattrap’s ears perked up at the sound of three explosions in the distance. “Aw, great. Now what?” Dinobot transformed to robot mode, his sword glinting in the light. “Whatever it is, we shall face it. And die as warriors should.” “Speak fer yerself, Lizard Lips. I ain’t gettin’ killed t’day.” “You m...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Rattrap looked at the two figures. “Ya get th’ feelin’ things at Hasbro are gettin’ a little weird?” Dinobot tapped one of the figures on it’s chest. “They are functional.” Kind of looks like they’d work great as Decoys, if it wasn’t for the fact that they’re both in color.

Re: Hey, who wants to buy a lake house and turn it into a commune?

Yeah, we're running into a similar problem over here. Not enough drivers are driving gas prices up, food prices, all the prices.

A commune is sounding better and better........

“MAKE JUNKION GREAT AGAIN!!!! STOP THE STEEL!!!

Re: Hey, what does everyone do for work now, anyway?

I'm now manager of Logistics for a small plastics company. I would have said no when I was offered the job except for 2 reasons: I've been here long enough that I know the way things work around here and I'd have wound up as a 'temporary' fill-in, and after a brief stint away for health insurance re...

“It’s about freakin’ time! Ya finally got us a ship!” Rattrap looked at the orange spacecraft. “Th’ actual ship’s gonna be a lot bigger, right?” Dinobot looked at the ship, then looked down at Rattrap. “I do not think this is what you were hoping for, Vermin.” “What? Crew quarters, lots’a guns, big ...

It's been kind of the same around here. We've done a bit better with the Netflix stuff, but I haven't seen any Beast Wars reissues, the only reissued Classic Headmasters(or whatever they're technically called) I saw were Hardhead and Highbrow, I think the last strictly G1 reissue I saw was Blaster.....

Re: OFFICIAL TRANSFORMERS TOYS NEWS

While I had no real interest in Unicron(I've got the Armada version with nowhere to put it, do I need another Unicron that's the size of a piece of furniture?), I would love to get Star Saber. Just Star Saber. It's nothing against Victory Leo, but given where the figure will likely wind up, having w...

Re: Which characters are you still waiting for a good toy of?

The Bludgeon looks really good. So does their take on Tracks, although not nearly as good as Bludgeon.

Has anybody gotten any of their other figures? What's the quality like?

Every time I think my local Walmart just isn't getting much in the way of stock coming in, they get something that surprises me. I think the last time they got any of the Legends-ish size class was PotP. After the first wave of that, no little guys, unless they were included with a Netflix version. ...

So this one is a bit of an odd one. Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Action Adventure for the DVD player. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s not that surprising.
