    Both marked as "complete" but I honestly don't trust them to know what complete is. Make sure you know what's supposed to be with it before going.

    I love that your (Spiff's) Megatron pic has been on the frontpage of shmax for over 6 months now. Did a double-take the first time I saw it and now it is just funny that is still there...

    Yeah, it doesn't really get updated unless I do it or Shmax sees something that catches his fancy. I haven't taken any pics too worthy of front page status recently.

    I know my G1 Wheeljack isn't complete...just missing his car mode rear spoilers, but those are pricey by themselves on ebay.

    Anyone seen a G1 Cliffjumper lately? Been looking for one of those as aside from Ratchet, Skids, and Grapple, CJ is the one of the last 84/85 carbots I'm missing.

    Sure am glad I can work from home. Still going to take me hours to get shoveled out though :( 

    The wife conveniently took the Jeep this morning and left me with the Volvo.

    Welp, the deck on the front of my house started leaking into my garage, so I might have to step back from TF'ing for a bit because I have no clue how much that's gonna cost to resolve. >< Stupid snow, stupid home ownership. XD

    Anybody interested in an informal TF meetup to tide us over until the next FrankieCon? We could all bring the latest POTP toys so people can check them out, etc. Might be fun!

    That sucks for the 181 stores worth of employees. We'll find other places to shop...but damn.

    Wow, that Blaine store has been there forever. Maybe now it will go back to being a hardware store (yes, I'm dating myself here).

    Wow, Blaine and Minnetonka TRU are my favorite ones right now and they're both closing. Maplewood is lost, too. Can't stand Maple Grove, it's like a mini-TRU. But I guess that's why it isn't closing.

    It says they're closing 1/5th of their stores...but here in MN, it's closer to 4/5ths

    Does anyone have experience using 3P sellers via Amazon? There are a few selling the TAV Runabout/Override I'm looking for but it's hard to know if I can trust them given they have mostly positive reviews...but I don't know what fallback is if they try to screw me through the Amazon process.

    I've sold (and bought) a bunch of stuff via Amazon. I'd trust buying something there more than eBay. They're much more strict.

    What Ian said. I've probably bought more TF's from 3p sellers on Amazon than from Amazon itself. The Cogman I should be getting today (provided it doesn't take another mystical voyage to friggin' Fargo) was from a 3p seller. I've only really had problems once (seller sent me the wrong figure) and I called them and they sent me the right figure while letting me keep the other (since it was just a PCC commander)

    Ditto, though with my luck I won't be able to make it like always. XD
