    I think the first indicator you went back in time is that you're at a Macy's.

    If anyone sees an extra Red Alert at Walgreens this weekend could you send me a quick message and put it aside for me?

    I’m unloading an extra sealed Kingdom Rodimus for $70. That’s about $15 off retail + tax. I’d rather give one of you a discount than pay to return it to Pulse. 297E6BD8-62BB-42D8-A85E-0B9300558286.jpeg

    I almost bought Slammer to go with my Metroplex, but then it hit me that I thought I had already gotten him. I looked in my account there on BBTS and I had already pre-ordered him. So this must just be a relisting or something, but good if you missed out on the first round.

    Around 2014 I was in a CVS waiting for a minute clinic appointment. I was wandering around the store looking at stuff and killing time. They had some Kenner Batman Animated figures from the late 90’s in the toy section.

    I have an extra Red Alert if you want him. Box is a bit warped, but he’s sealed.

    Good morning: My son turned five today and got the Dino Fury Megazord pack off Amazon. His quick review is very positive.

    He's had it out for a few hours now already and hasn't read the instructions once. It's a hit.

    He highly recommends it. Perfect for a kid who's in to both LEGOs and dinosaur themed robots. Pretty easy learning curve and the possibilities are pretty expansive.

    Sorry...little rant about today and things involving my Dad here...

    So today my Dad received a latter from Xcel Energy in the mail about "a payment in the amount of $$ issued toward the balance on your account, was returned to Xcel Energy"
    Confused, I called them up as I had been told he just had a final bill of like $17, which I paid off myself the day before, and yet here is this letter about another bill amount.

    The lady I talked to from Xcel told me he did still have a balance that needed paying...and so I asked her if they had cancelled the Autopay and she said they couldn't cause it wasn't "Autopay", but some kind of "Rapid Pay" and that apparently the bank gives them the money or something...which to me sounds like Autopay, but she claims she doesn't have his bank account info...so the bank is sending the money them...or rather not now due to his accounts being frozen.

    So I call my Dad's bank and am on hold for over an hour and a half before someone FINALLY picks up and I tell him about how I need all "direct payments" stopped on my Dad's accounts, but the guy can't do anything for me over the phone and that I need to go to the bank itself here...which is closed and even if it wasn't the bank account is still frozen...I dunno if they'd help me either...

    So right now I'm a bit stressed about this...just too much going on here...

    I wonder if it's like that 'bill pay' thing you can do with some banks where it's through the bank itself and not through the service's autopay features. It is annoying - I work with security stuff and sometimes the requirements to get things done definitely feel like overkill, and it's frustrating they didn't really seem to empathize with your situation at all. Sorry you gotta deal with all that.

    IMO, definitely better than the BoJ version for the articulation alone. I was hoping they would fix some of the weird pegging choices, but probably won't happen. It's also a bummer that Hasbro's not getting any of the newer Sentai series because Zenkaiger and Kiramager's mecha would really benefit from more articulated versions.

    I may have a spare Tigatron arriving mid-December if anyone is interested. Current estimate is the 18th.

    EDIT: Claimed.

    This would be my guess as well. The vendor isn't pulling money from the account regularly; the bank is sending it in as as service. It's a fine line, but accounting is all about fine lines...

    That's what some people at work are thinking too. That it's the bank sending money to the electric company.

    My big concern here is, if I go to the bank tomorrow and ask them to stop all direct payments to whatever my Dad might have had set up...will they since we can't do anything with his account like consolidate it until 30 days after his death and have a death certificate and this other form?

    30 days after my Dad's death falls on Thanksgiving Day of all days, so we wouldn't even be able to close out my Dad's bank accounts until Friday of this week.

    Got my J. Balvitron today because I'm a sucker for Soundwave and hideous decos, but I was surprised to realize he doesn't have soundwaves battery-weapons, so there's just an empty compartment on his back. Ah well, at least I have giant technicolor rifles.

    He's got the 'shipping soon' tag on Pulse, but considering how long it took to get my Waspinator out the door.... Either way, people should be getting him soon! I'll keep my eyes peeled, too.
