    /\Out of context that is really...well...

    I am so glad firing missiles seem to be a thing of the past now. In clearing up a storage area I found a few missiles I either have no idea what they go to or they should be with figures I sold years ago.
    Ugh.

    I ran out of space to store my transformers, but also I do not want to sell anything.

    I miss spring-loaded launchers. Just something cool we can't have anymore, like electronics and rubber tires and 2+ sentence bios and pinned wheels and ratchets and telescoping parts and distribution...

    I miss them almost solely on the basis of their absence being just another example of cost cutting measures.

    If one of those missiles goes to Classics Skywarp or Generations Dirge, we may need to talk sales/trade...

    My ebay account randomly listed a tent for sale for 12.99 with quantity 1000. They sold really well and I had to spend all day cancelling orders. Anyone have something like this happen?

    Same. I'm also upset Cyberverse will only get Deluxes as "proper" figures. What about Voyagers and Leaders? I'd really like a proper Clobber and Lockdown.

    Cyberverse is being canceled since it's the third year.

    Transformers series have normally lasted three years.

    Hopefully the next showline doesn't look like Cyberverse and hopefully it's not Bumblebee this Bumblebee that.
