sofisticated ? ha your as sofisticated as a rock, but not just any rock, a rock with algae on it.
Silas did Shafter's art?
And Shafter doesn't have a huge rack?
I feel proud for finally making vangelus spend money (one of the ones saying GET FORDO).
It is the greatest feeling in the world revenge is so sweet
Pretty much. I mean, I've generally been a fan of the idea & in many ways even the executions (Bombshock for instance is something I really can't say enough good things about), but that's in terms of being a retail priced toy. For something that's gonna go above & beyond my wallet's expectations, it's gonna need to be something that offers more to me than a new colour scheme, especially since I don't even think I like many of them better than the mass released ones.
So in that respect, I'm a PCC fan. However, I don't see them as being worth the 40+ dollar range because I look at them as being cool toys that in some cases border into being collectables, rather than something that mostly wows me as a collectible & also works as a toy, if that makes any sense.
That Red Ninja in the Retaliation three-pack is also intended as a modern update to Slice, the Cobra Ninja from the Ninja Force line in 1992. Transformers fans, you might know him from his appearance in the G.I. Joe comic issues that served as a G2 Transformers crossover and lead-in to the G2 comics!
And that was justification eneough for me to pick up the set.
Let me be the first to tell you that, Shafter does have something huge...
That shouldn't be hard to guess.
I freakin' loved Slice! and Dice! I was really into Joe during that time period.
Also, PCC's... I really like the United color schemes. I've put Marine and Tank master on preorder and that was the only set I could sorta justify.
I am curious to know why they're priced so high.
Vangelus, was it Sky Commanders you were thinking of? (You've probably already determined this a week and a half later, but just in case)
I did miss Seth this episode too!
you know how i was gloating how i made vangelus spend money? yeah, he still is constantly making me spend my money on stuff
Takara PCC repaints for 80$?
I think I'll go the other way, the hobby cheapening way.
to each his own I guess.
Ehh, working two jobs now
means more money I'll put aside for TFcon
but less time for listening
Is it worth the trade?
Listen while you sleep?
Makes joke about podcast putting me to sleep
I don't mean that, podcast.
Speaking as a fellow Canadian...I'd really appreciate it if people in the US Would come over and take a couple of Bumblees off our hands...that's probably the reason why we haven't gotten anything past wave 1 yet...
Yep, Australia has the same problem. The retailers haven't gotten rid of wave 1 of the deluxes, voyagers and cyberverse figures, so we haven't gotten any of the latest waves.
Well to be honest, I think the fact that we were at one time swimming in FE Primes & Bulkheads (well not really, but for the sake of illustrating my point to exaggeration lets say we were) kinda stumps our right to moan about not getting the new Bumblebee repaint.
Also to TedimusPrime, I didn't mean that it'd be the Podcast that puts you to sleep, but just that you could listen to it while you sleep, type of deal. Pretty sure you got that haha, but these days one can never be too careful.
The U.S. isn't doing any better battling the swarm of bees. I just got back from the store and found literally 20 with the rare cliffy among them.
Unfortunately I lack the ability to change anything about the podcast itself. Someday I shall pry away that power from Vangelus, I promise you... but not today.
You made him spend what, ten bucks? Fifteen max? And how many of you did it take to accomplish that?
How much did he make you spend?
yeah, i'm a fan of them as well, but not for that price... if BBTS clearances them out later, i may try to get a set or two, but mostly i just want some of the later molds that didn't get repainted in the US... i do dig those unified color schemes though...
and what was that Star Wars figure again? Is he still available at retail?
edit: NM, i found him.
I'm currently halfway through this episode...
I DID have a question here but it no longer applies, I've just found out how to ask.
