I'm so glad I'm not the only one who likes FoC Jazz. He's a really good figure who has a couple oddities.Burnout V4 - Free papercraft energon cubes made by me
Also, what's the new Turtles cartoon called? I know practically nothing about it other than they have 3 toes and that looks weird.

(Spoiler if you're reading this before listening to the podcast)For Sale and or Trade Thread:http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/items-...onal-sale.html
My answer to the listener question "what Hasbro board game would you make into a movie?" and I'm very surprised one of the podcasters with a Jeffery Combs' fetish didn't mention this! "Operation" with Jeffery Combs or Ratchet as the main character, it could be a TF/Operation crossover sci fi/horror flick, maybe Movie Ratchet with Jeffery Combs as the voice.
Plot: The Transformers war is over and the Autobots don't have much to do these days and they are getting restless having random incidents here and there. One night Ratchet is out for "a drive" and finds a random straggler Decepticon, not very big, kind of small and weak, just right for a beginning. Instead of calling for back up and following protocol to apprehend this rogue, Ratchet's thirst for blood from his war days is awoken. He quickly strikes his now chosen prey with surgical precision to disable him from fighting back, dragging him to a remote desolate area he knows to perform a "Surgical Procedure" maybe a dissection?
Soon this becomes a nightly thing for Ratchet that he shares with no one else until one night he's tailed in the distance by Bumblebee. What Bee sees when Ratchet makes his "move" horrifies him at first but then his curiosity gets the better of him as gets in closer to get a better look at what Ratchet is doing. He makes a wrong move that gives away that he is watching Ratchet, Ratchet quickly guts his victim for the evening as BB comes from the shadows he was watching from with his hands up in a surrendering posture. In Bumblespeak Bee asks what he is doing? Ratchet's reply (knowing he almost or has just got caught) is "just getting energon and spare parts" Ratchet knows he can't just off Bee like some Decepticon punk without raising any alarm bells. Ratchet asks Bee what he saw and Bee (being equally as bored as Ratchet was before his new hobby) says "everything, but I want in on it too" Ratchet is surprised by Bee's answer but is relieved that he won't be ratted out, at least right away anyway besides Ratchet could use an assistant for some of the bigger prizes he has his eye on. Ratchet quickly thinks things out and agrees to let Bee in on the action and at the same time he wants to ensure silence. He offers Bee a chance to get a voice back using parts from a recently deceased Decepticon as long as he keeps quiet. Bee agrees and and soon as he does so Ratchet slices Bee's neck finishing off the vocal processors that Megatron never could. (Ratchet thrilled) "Yessss! That's better! Now I don't have to listen to that loud beepy annoying radiospeak anymore, thank Cybertron! As soon as you prove your trust and loyalty, you'll get vocal processors you like from one of our patients! come on let's go back to headquarters" Bee stunned, in disbelief at this new and different Ratchet and by his own predicament and pain nods yes and transforms to head back to base.
Ratchet will now use his victim as the alibi for the loss of Bee's ability to speak when Optimus and the humans ask....
I could write on but in short eventually Prime and the Autobots find out and join in on the fun and when the Autobots get thin on Decepticons well humans will do, (in Ratchet's voice) "There's 7 billion of them who will miss a few? We just have to be a little more delicate with them." Imagine what could happen if say a human got stuck inside Ratchet while in vehicle mode strapped to a stretcher?
Add to the story and discuss away!

Hey Vangelus, I have a tip for you for Figma Samus: Go to Goodsmile's website and send them an email. You can get replacement parts for free. I had two Figmas that came broken recently, and after emailing them, then sending them photos, they sent me replacements for free. It's worth a shot. I'm sure they'll be able to help you, since one of mine was an older Figma, and one of them was a very limited exclusive, so I'm sure a much newer one would be easy to get replacements for.
EDIT: Here's the contact link: http://goodsmile-wf-global.ecq.sc/contacts

Just got back from FanExpo and I saw the Terror Con Bumblebee in person. It looks pretty cool, I gotta say. The box it comes in is like a voyager-style shrunken down to a deluxeish size...but the dealer wanted 75-80 for it...can't remember the exact price but it was in that range.

as a figma collector myself, owner of 16 figmas, all of them anime girls, i really love the line. its one of my all time favorite figure lines and i really wished people would give it more of a shot. it ain't no figuarts line but its awesome in its own right
in fact, my all time favorite toy of all time was my very first figma, figma luka (the vocaloid)
me, i see characters like link and samus, and i am like "meh, its nice but nothing i want", not that they shouldn't be made, if people want them, all to them, but i perfer it when figma makes figures mroe atuned to my taste, i'm still waiting for append versions of the vocaloids rin and len, hell there are a lot of vocaloids i want as figmas, gakupo, meiko, kaito, make them all!
