Re: [The video game thread]

PS5 That is all Do you like it? I hear the load times are ridiculously quick. I plan on getting one in the next year or so, when I scrabble the cash together and stores actually have reliable stock around. Not in a rush since I am still really enjoying the PS4. I also hear the controller is fantast...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Earthrise Runabout from a Target pre-order. I already have Runamuck, so it's nice to have a full set. Basically a redeco with a new head, but that's OK. So he's nothing new or special for me, but I really dig the black and red, especially in the windows. The double-pistols-that-can-be-a-rifle is al...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Prowl and Ironhide are a two-pack, yeah? Wasn't impressed with the look of Ironhide/Ratchet, but was happy to find Bluestreak at Walgreens about a month ago. I had thought it a remold of the Siege figure(s), but I can't actually find any parts in common between him and Barricade. Yes they are. It's...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Earthrise Snapdragon, Prowl, Ironhide, and Runamuck Snapdragon as a gift, the other 3 as pre-orders that came in the mail. Snapdragon is really fun, but nothing special. Easy to go between the 3 modes, and the Headmaster functionality is good. Overall very fun figure. Prowl is great! Easily replace...

Re: Your Latest Non-TF Toy Acquisitions

Lego Star Wars 75288 AT-AT A gift from my family. Very nice set that comes with a bunch of fun stuff to mess with: 2 AT-AT drivers, 2 Snowtroopers, General Veers, and Luke Skywalker, an eWeb blaster, and a speeder bike. The speeder bike stores nicely in the AT-AT, and the eWeb can kinda be stored a...

Re: [The video game thread]

35th Anniversary Mario Game & Watch Nice little device with a great screen. A bit cramped in my hands since it's small, but it travels nicely. It only has SMB & the Japanese version of SMB2 plus the Game & Watch game Ball. Seems like they could have also squeezed in SMB2 from the US and SMB3, but i...

Re: [The video game thread]

I've put in a fair amount of time and have got 20 Stars in Mario 64 so far. I've only played a little bit of Sunshine and Galaxy mainly because I kind of want to finish them in order but after about a half hour of playing Galaxy I'm sure now that it is my favourite Mario game that I've played so fa...

Same!

Though I've only played through some of Sunshine and a tiny bit of 64 so far.

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

SS 67 Skipjack: Finally able to put together Devy! Skipjack on his own is pretty neat with the whole pogo-stick look. The arms a little funky, but oh well. The bulldozer mode is surprisingly great. :D SS Devy is all huge and chunky and awesome when assembled. I love it. Shoulder and arm joints coul...

WFC ER Thundercracker & Skywarp: Nice set I was able to order off Target's website. They go great with ER Starscream, but I can't imagine continually buying more of this mold, even the coneheads. Glad they brought back silver on these two; I wasn't keen on the grey used in the Siege ones. I like th...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Studio Series Overload. He's a big, honking dude and I like him. Seems a bit unbalanced to the forward and back, but I think I just need to get used to positioning the arms properly to distribute weight.

Now I just need Skipjack to ship so I can put together Devastator!

Re: [The video game thread]

So, I decided to try my new SNES controller. My SNES won't start. I tried different games, different controllers. Nothing. I think the last time I played it was around Labor Day (early Sept) when I got a new TV and was making sure I had everything hooked up correctly. Donkey Kong Country had lost a...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

WFC Netflix Hotlink w/ Heatstroke & Heartburn as a gift from my wife. Nice set, overall. Hotlink has a really unique deco: most of the plastic is black, but he's got various shades of purple in interesting patterns. Surprisingly there's a lot of paint on this figure compared to a lot of the mass re...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

The school's going virtual/distance learning for a couple days. Hopefully schools like the ones Sadie's daughter and Warcry's son go to that open in September are watching and learning from this school's mistakes. Opening a school just long enough to cause several covid cases, then closing again is...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Earthrise Optimus Prime Quite a wonderful figure. Not that the fandom needed another Optimus, but this one is really well done. I was quite pleased with the Siege version, but I like this one even better. Articulation is great, and you can really get this guy into some fantastic action poses. I lov...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I'm behind others on piecing together the Studio Series Devy, but yesterday I got SS 42 Long Haul and SS 41 Scrapmetal in the mail. Due to the heavily overpriced aftermarket costs, I went the route of KO's for these. I would prefer to have the real ones, and honestly I was worried that the quality w...

Re: [The video game thread]

I only found that I could play Skyrim via Switch. At least it was portable, I could play for short chunks, and also long chunks here and there. Good game, IMO, but I likely won't play a second time. I also bought Overcooked! on the Switch last week on a good sale. Mostly because my kids played it at...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

After getting SS Mixmaster, I've been impressed enough to hunt down the rest for SS Devy. I was able to find SS 60 Scrapper and SS 55 Scavenger at Walmart the other day. I like them both. Scavenger has such a strange design, but it's really quite fun. The lower wheel rotates well on carpet and the a...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

SS 49 Bumblebee Nice figure. I basically feel the same way about this figure as SkyQuake mentioned, so there's no need to retread that. :up: SS 51 Soundwave Another good solid figure. The transformation is simpler than other SS figures I have, but in a good way. Even though he doesn't show much col...

Re: Your Latest Non-TF Toy Acquisitions

Lego Speed Champions! How did I not know this line existed? My son bought the 75891 Chevy Camaro (like a stock car), which I thought was rather solid and great looking. So in order to race him, I picked up the 75890 Ferrari F40 . Both cars are really slick, and fun to build. To increase our garage, ...
