    They did release a stepper in the US and I guess it flopped Ricochet - Hasbro Commemorative Reissues - TFW2005 which really burned my jets as if it had went though with some gusto we could maybe have finally got an Artfire, which that, we never have had a release here. Of course if they did it would be under some dumb name like Commemorative Series Shoot-off with Off-shoot weapon or some garbage like that (coughs)Firebolt.

    I mean did someone in America have the name Stepper tm'd at the time?:confused:

    Many of the more Obscure reissues burned Toys R Us into clearance. Hoist, Grapple, Dirge, Tracks, Silverstreak, and Ricochet I recall finding in toys r us clearance back then. It still makes toys R Us careful with taking reissues because of that. Perceptor and the insecticons for the 25th anniversary did not have as much trouble selling. But then again the market has changed a bit thanks to the movie.

    Don't forget Alternators Ricochet. He's pretty cool. Though its not the Jazz/Meister mold.

I'm really excited to be able to finally attend my first botcon this year, and i look forward to meeting everyone, and i hope vangelus and seth can go and all, i want to meet everyone from the podcast that i can :lol 

    i want the rescue bot prime, i keep picking him up and putting him back, but soon i'll cave lol i want to see how those turned out

    *facedesk*, Apologies, must have seriously zoned out [​IMG] Hell, truth be told was more just venting my rage at never getting an Artfire of any kind in this hemisphere. Would be really nice if done well.

    To malign someone is to speak about them in a rude, mean-spirited way. It's a very specific word, and not a general word(s) like "criticize" or "disagree with." It's not political to suggest civility in highly public conversations. If someone is in favor of maligning someone, that person is in favor of rude, mean-spirited discourse.

    The best guess we can make with the Fallen, is that he can change from the Fallen into Megatronus, via the Power Core gimmick.

    Wouldn't that work better the other way around? :inquisiti 
    But yeah, that sort of feature would be a great way to justify the PCC plugs.

    Well I was going off of memory, ie paraphrasing what was said. "Malign" may not have even been the word used. I'd like to say I'll go back and listen to it refresh my memory on what exactly was said, but honestly replying here (no offence) is going beyond the time I wished to commit to something that impacted my enjoyment of this hobby and this podcast in a negative light.
    My point being that what was said came off a lot like "I don't like it when people say bad things about the Occupy movement" and that was just to political for my liking.
    And for the record I disliked the original Occupy BotCon joke from the Twitter account for the same reason.

    It's just something that as a listener and fan I thought I should bring up, nothing more or less. I'm not going to boycott the podcast over it, nor do I see any of the hosts in a negative light because of it. In fact I don't plan on saying another word about it. Cheers.

    What I was saying on the subject is what might be funny got one group is serious for others and then saying "Look here is a Tea Party joke so now it's even" and that being just as bad because now they are risking pissing off the other side.

    I don't know where you got these ideas that we made this hard stand one way or the other but whatever dude, relax.

    Because it saved me money. Sure, I'll keep some water heaters warm for a few days if it saves me on shipping. :D

    Gumby bums me out now. Man, that's kind of depressing. Children programs seem to always have something going on in the background.
