Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Is the medication they gave him a one-and-done kinda thing, or is going to need a regimen for a while? One and done, thankfully. He'd just finished a course of antibiotics for a tooth infection and it was difficult enough to get him to go along with that when he was healthy. I'd hate to think how m...

Re: Your Latest Non-TF Toy Acquisitions

I have to admit, He-Man was literally the last 80s property I'd have expected to find success again. But I'm happy to see that I was wrong. There's retro figures, more modern stuff, even building kits I think? Is it just fogeys like us that are buying the stuff, or are kids into it too? I had a fuck...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Last night, my six year old had to be rushed to the hospital in the middle of the night because he couldn't breathe. He'd been coughing a little bit for a couple days beforehand, and we'd kept him home from school, but it went from a 1 to a 10+ in terms of severity inside a couple hours. We don't kn...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I'd have liked a bit more of the darker brown to break up the monotony in his ambulatory mode. The chest plate really should have been dark brown, and probably would have if they'd made this toy a few years ago (kinda like how the Universe and MP Acid Storms were more than just bright green). The p...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Kingdom Shadow Panther The only thing I really knew about the Cheetor version of this toy was how the tab on the beast-mode neck was apparently getting stuck and ripping big chunks out of the figure's back. So I was pretty amused to find that the tab in question literally fell off of my Shadow Pant...

Re: re-issued Beast Wars

I've found the reissues in pretty big numbers as well, which was a nice surprise. Rattrap was the only one of the bunch that I really wanted, but I hope they sell well enough that Walmart keeps stocking them. I think they all have slightly different decos than the vintage figures, though I don't kno...

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

I'm a programmer! I think I mentioned a couple years ago that the company I worked for had been bought up by our largest competitor? I'd had about five different roles there and no space to advance in any of them at the old company, so it'd been looking like time to move on for a while. Moving to a ...

The universe obviously got tired of my bitching. Beast Wars Reissue Rattrap I found this guy while I was out grocery shopping. And I definitely can't say no to an MISB Beast Wars figure that I don't already own, not even when they're charging the already inflated Deluxe prices for a Basic. I mean, I...

Kingdom Wingfinger The Fossilizers are be best thing Hasbro has done in years, a fresh idea executed in a creative way but one that also feels completely at home in the wider Beast Wars milieu. I think Wingfinger is probably the most dynamic action figure out of the four. Being as skinny as it is c...

Re: OFFICIAL TRANSFORMERS TOYS NEWS

I would imagine the online stores would go through different channels for this? I seem to recall their orders all got added into the count en masse at the end of Unicron's campaign. A part of me hopes that this campaign fails because I really don't like the idea of billion-dollar companies like Hasb...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

That's terrifying. I know kids usually come through COVID without getting too sick, but a policy like that is a good way to make sure that it'll tear right through an entire school until it finds the handful of kids whose immune systems are vulnerable. :( In Manitoba, we've whiplashed from our schoo...

Re: Do people go elsewhere than eBay for old toys/comics these days?

There certainly seems to be less competition for old toys on eBay these days. I've recently seen a few items, thought about buying them and then gotten distracted and forgotten all about it. Then I've gone back to eBay weeks or months later and the listings are still there. Auction listings seem to ...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

I didn't even know there were that many Devastators. And I don't think I own a single (green) Constructicon, but that's an impressive display. A "wall of colour", really eye-catching. The display case actually catches my eye just as much as the Constructicons and friends, though. I feel li...

Re: Human being roll call

You are 110% correct about me not being able to find TikTok.

A call could be fun if enough people were available at the same time, but honestly I spend half my work day on video calls so I don't know if I'd have the energy to show up for another one.

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

Ravage's alt-mode isn't the best thing ever . Nemesis Primal confuses me. Optimus is already mostly black, so the Nemesis scheme doesn't really seem like much of a change. I'd also be up for some Road Rage, but those Target exclusives are really hit or miss up here. The Micromasters and Rainmakers ...

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

The crowd of attention-hungry leakers on the bigger boards seem to be indicating that Ravage will get a regular release in 2022/23 some time, if I'm understanding right. I'm glad they're making a Fangry but I'm really unimpressed that it's part of a $100+ store exclusive four-pack. Unlike Ravage, I'...
