Re: Anyone watch Masters of the Universe Revelation? [spoilers]

I don't know much about it, but I watched the first episode to see what the complaining was about, and it was, I think the term for it is, a nothingburger. Seemed pretty obvious that they booted He-Man and Skeletor into a dimensional pocket so that they could spend the first arc or season of the sho...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

With leadership like this, it's no wonder the public are having a hard time buying into, well public health. Won't argue that the former guy here in the US wasn't a force of nature for stupid unto himself, but here it's more of a bottom up problem now: Texas, Florida, and Missouri account for 40% o...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

Spent a good chunk of the weekend completely emptying a cabinet to redo everything that was in it. The catalyst was the Master Made chibi devastator finally arriving in the mail Friday. The Combiner Wars Devvy and its undersized knockoff, the knockoff Gravity Builder, and Toyworld Constructor had be...

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

I'm more alarmed by the state of the reissue cassette Ravage that comes with him. It looks warped. Hopefully it's a factory error and not mold wear.

Although, reading about the transmissibility of the Delta variant, I wonder if things are on the mend or if this is just the eye of the storm until a vaccine-resistant strain emerges. <sigh> https://www.msn.com/en-us/health/medical/who-urges-fully-vaccinated-people-to-continue-to-wear-masks-as-delt...

Re: Custom Siege Pinpointer (or: babby's first dye job) [and other random customs]

jamming a bunch of screwdrivers in between the shoulder pieces and forcibly levering the joint apart. That's an even worse idea! I physically winced when reading this. That's... not a good idea. Tangentially, I should probably buy lots of Galvatrons as it's a figure that'll cost a fortune in a few ...

Re: Need some advice on a MP style Megatron

Never had any experience with the 3rd party Megatrons, but you might try searching for a knockoff of MP36. I've heard generally good evaluations of MP knockoffs, considering they're about one-third the price of the official figures. Only one I have myself is a KO Ratbat which *maybe* had a pin drill...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I got a movie MP Starscream in the mail the other day. I will call him King Dorito. If you're old like me and still have the 2010 leader Starscream, it's broadly similar to that. The biggest difference is using the volume inside the jet to store those little engines that end up on the robot's back i...

Re: Site content and community revitalization project

How about 3 different YouTube shows one based on the TV shows, the second based on the comics, and the third based on toys? With different hosts and then maybe a a monthly Twitch show where the hosts could do a show together. Also I know Twitter and Facebook are dumpster fires but TFA NEEDS an acti...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

I agree! But it's also dependant on the toy doing something cool, you know? A lot of older toys aren't very well articulated (or they're articulated but not poseable because of bad range of motion) but they're still fun. With modern toys...well, they don't do anything, for the most part, so poseabi...

Re: TFcon Los Angeles 2022 announced: March 11–13

How big has TFCon been in the past? I recognize that the first post-pandemic (hopefully, knock on wood) convention will be an absolute wild card, but I'm curious.

I have a content idea that may or may not be a good fit.

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

My main takeaway from this is that Rampage is huge . Not as big as you'd think. He takes up a large area on account of the legs, but those are actually pretty spindly. Most of the mass is in the claws and body, which is roughly the same as Depth Charge. https://i.imgur.com/pV3dSRG.jpg Though to be ...
