Discussion in 'Transformers Toy Discussion' started by Sam, Apr 14, 2017.
Do we even post on the same forum I wonder....
Please quote me and highlight where I insulted anyone.
Cost and elitism don't go hand-in-hand, so that's pretty irrelevant to this discussion.
I must ask, how exactly are 3p items fake? They're not branded as transformers, they are tangible objects, I can see several sitting on my shelf right now. If civil discussion can't be had then maybe you shouldn't take part in a community. Simple rule of social interaction, don't be a dick and people generally wont be dicks to you
While I agree with the cost comment, I would ask for a definition of elitism, and I will honestly say I will do this for shits and giggles because I can no longer take this thread seriously, its past that point.
You said I collect garbage
Because they're not Transformers, it's pretty much that simple. They may look like Transformers, but that's because they're infringing on Hasbro's IP. If people want to buy purely 'Transformers', then yeah, then entire world of unlicensed product is going to be a no go area for them.
Why is this so hard to understand?
Well technically they do transform...doesn't that make them transformers? Lmao jk
And that gives people license to to be assholes to other fans? Yes calling things others collect fakes and garbage can be inciting to some. Just because you don't like something doesn't mean you have to actively trash it
One man's trash is another man's treasure. I'm sure if you saw some of the stuff I spent my money on you'd think it was stupid and a complete waste.
Is that an insult?
If I take a gun you build, reverse engineer it, create another one and shoot you with it, you would try to argue that its not a gun?
It isn't. Some just to refuse to.
I know its not dirrected at me and I said that I dont care earlier, but I happen to know that if you did that in person (i.e. not behind a screen) to the majority of people, If I was nearby you, I would collect bets on the amount of lost teeth.
I'm stating my opinions in official threads about official products. Isn't that "discussion?" Do I go to 3P threads and tell everyone they're assholes and try to start shit and tell them what they should and shouldn't collect?
It's a gun but it's not a Smith and Wesson.
You really think you'd knock my teeth out if I met you in person, we're at a party, having beers, talking about toys....I say "Nah man, I don't collect that garbage."
And you'd swing at me and knock my teeth out? For that?? And I'm the "toxic" one??
It isnt indeed that hard to understand that a product is what it is regardless of who stamps it.
I call you again to reread what I posted, I never said Id do that. Regarding the Smith and Wesson: A dead body is a dead body no matter the brand.
Welcome to reality I dont condone it, but I would try to get the extra cash truth be told
You collect transforming robot toys. I collect Transformers TM.
As someone who buys Hasbro retail TFs *, including Movieverse, I'm told that CONSTANTLY around here.
If it ever got too nasty or personal ("people like you have no taste", "shit garbage for babies")** I used to object, and was told to pound sand.
Whether we like it or not, this is the way the forums are.
* and MP, 3P, and just about everything else TF-like
** I've never objected to civil disagreement or criticism of figures, lines, or companies. This isn't about that type of post. It's the raging "this is all shit for morons" posts I'm talking about.
