    What are the odds that they found this bag of toys while TFCon was happening? Was that somehow planned?

    As in they broke it in front of you by accident?

    I was questioning how the arm would have just came loose without it breaking off, being a G1 toy, so I guess I was right.

    The timeline of the footage is all over the place. (Like they actually were in the dealer room after the meeting, not before)

    The education stuff was fading before the pawn or, worse, logging trend.

    In my experience, it went from various topics to just WW2 to just *Hitler* (there was a time when they had soooo many Hitler shows... nights of nothing but Hitler would be common!), and then the reality ones started up.

    And heck, of the current batch, at least the pawn ones mention the history of items sometimes (a bare thread, to say the least!), a lot of the others have zero historical contact.

    Animal Planet is almost entirely away from shows about animals.... pretty much the entire Discovery-History block on my TV listings is abandoned by me nowadays, a good half-dozen channels.

    I find the only place to find history programming is to go for the more minor startups who haven't yet shifted to the reality trend. Like the Smithsonian channel. Tiny budgets, but still, history.

    Or, heck, Discovery Family. See, when Discovery gets a new channel, they fill time with the actual documentaries that aren't on the main channels. So when it's not on the cartoon block with TF and MLP, sometimes there's something good on.

    At least we still have science channel, they seem to be holding off the reality tv pretty well.

    Honestly, most Canadian (and dare I say, even American) shows nowadays tend to suck. It's why I barely watch TV anymore.

    And I know this first-hand since I'm Canadian myself.

    I find it hard to believe that their collection is valued at $650. I would say $250.

    Lol, like that they broke megatron's arm. So easy to do if you don't know about how fragile he is, I broke mine when I was in my teens.

    Also yeah $200 is a a more realistic estimate and you wouldn't get that selling it as a single lot.


    Kind of good that it wasn't a more impressive haul because I'd feel bad for whomever lost it.

    I was there that day and even talked to the guy Rick for a bit since I am a fan of the show, they filmed our interaction but of course it did not make it in, He would not show me what was in the bag, he did not want to spoil the surprise for the show, I no longer get that channel due to Analog channels dropping off and I am too cheap, I have not seen the episode and have always wondered what was in the bag, now I know so thanks for that, but looking at it now, I would have said around the $200-$250 mark, if Megs was not broken, it would have been a lot higher, if he was in my collection it would be just a Alt form wall hanger.... nothing really surprising in thoses

    Yes, though I'm not sure how long they'll hold on.

    I mean, 'random acts of science' is kinda reality-show-ish, being youtube videos, just, with actual scientific commentary.

    Loved the costumes at the beginning! You were extremely professional Protoman.

    I chuckled when they were taking stuff out of the bag and the reactions you had with each new piece.I could tell you were hamming it up for the sake of the show but it was in a way that was not overboard and you represented the community very well. Congrats on being on TV :)

    First off, awesome you were on TV representing Transformer collectors. You were very professional. But, I do have to say it sucks you had to do the Wow, this is worth $650 when it's closer to maybe $200, $250. But, that's TV, and I get it. You even responded you were coerced to give a higher estimate.
    Thanks for sharing!
