    To be fair, it’s actually, like, his own property. Imagine thinking you can buy toys and do with them what you wish.
    What a thought.

    From a nerdy stand point (I'm one too :lol ) I kinda understand where the negativity comes as there's not a dearth of collectors who handle their collections like a china vase. Like comicbook guy from the Simpsons ( I'm not an MISB fan). From a parental side. your sharing your hobby with the future fans of the series is sweet! Expose them to G1 (TV series first) first! That's what I say!:thumb

    Is there anywhere you can still get a pre-order on Megatron for $60? I've been struck with a sudden wanting for the figure, but he's out of stock on Pulse, not available on BBTS and marked up $10 on TFSource. Am I going to have to face the consequences of waiting too long to preorder?

    I was out yesterday all day, but Star Convoy arrived! I took some pictures this afternoon. I also had to future the crap out of Convoy's hips, as they popped off quite easily between the looseness of their grip and the tightness of the thigh swivel. Man, does the "Star" not like to plug in to the chest.


    Not a bad size for those who like Optimus to be a little smaller.

    Optimus Pirme denies having "Window enlargement surgery", but sources close to Optimus say otherwise...

    I hate to say it, but even at the price I paid, it still feels overpriced. There's some things to like, but a lot of easy criticisms about this guy.

    Take that red connector that holds the star to the body and flip it over. Misassembled on every one. Just be careful as the star is delicate. It fits better then.

    Lol, so I got an email this morning from Hasbro Pulse saying:

    "You've recently bought Transformers Takara Tomy Generations Selects TT-GS09 Super Megatron, what do you think about it?"

    I don't know Hasbro, send me one first and I'll tell you...?

    I have this pre-ordered on both Pulse and The Chosen Prime... the Chosen Prime just sent me an email this afternoon that he is due to arrive at their warehouse in ~3 days?! o_O 

    I'm writing them back right now.

    Yeah I prepaid mine when he first went up for pre-order and just saw that the two I ordered are in my stash.

    Probably a glitch or something.
