Psst ... the cake is a lie!
I really wish that search would reveal ALL the listings so I could know for sure that something was sold out or not up for order yet, instead of assuming it's there somewhere in the mess of results and I haven't found it yet.
It also irks me that searching "Netflix Transformers" or the like turns up the same 400 some listings that come up when I just search "Transformers"...
I don’t care much for the “mainstream” Ratchet colors. His head has always seemed off to me. I much prefer the comic red helmet and white crest to the cartoon white helmet and black crest. To me the black crest always seemed out of place with the rest of his color scheme.
Not really a rant but sometimes shit like this REALLY grinds my gear
No...No, no, no, NOOOOOO!
My earliest experience with partsforming was Movie Voyager Ratchet. As I recall nobody ever called it lazy, but nobody went to lengths to defend it either.
Well, just like @Peaugh, I’ve learned my lesson. I will never be ordering figures from Megalopolis again. I had the same exact scenario happen with Snapdragon that Peaugh had. I finally coerced them into refunding me, but they said it could take up to 7 business days to process. Everyone just avoid Megalopolis Toys, they started going downhill even before the madness started.
What happened? I havent watched Peaugh in a long while
Megalopolis not sending stuff
I ordered Snapdragon last week. Their site indicated it was in stock. Knowing how difficult it is to hunt for figures right now, I jumped on it. A week later, nothing had been updated on my order as far as tracking or shipping. I emailed them and they said Snapdragon actually won’t be in stock until NEXT WEEK. I mean, are you friggin’ kidding me? It’s worse than them not sending stuff. They’re lying about having it in the first place. I demanded a refund and will never shop with them again. I’ll just have to be patient enough to find it cheaper in the store anyway.
G1 is worse than Ghostbuster 2016. I hate how it´s all we get nowadays. total bullshit. We need a figure of sexy Optimus.
I'm sorry, what?
"We need a figure of Sexy Optimus"-Goobcube
Animated Optimus. The Giga Chad of the Optimus´s.
There's a lot of things I'd call Animated Optimus, that isn't one of them. I do agree that he should get a new figure though.
I was going to complain about this on the Earthrise list. But who am I to be such a Negative Nancy? I'll post here among the salt.
The female transformers which are just folded up fembots in eggshells which themselves turn into massive backpacks are all pretty disappointing. I am all for female transformers, but they should be able to incorporate the vehicle into their actual form. That's the whole gimmick. All the ones lately look terrible.
You could engineer a convincing fembot I think out of the Datsun brothers style. You already have, uh, a mold with a big bust and a thin waist. Throwing it out there.
One of the best molds was TFPrime Arcee. Great robot and good looking alt mode. The only problem with that was scale. Obviously, a Suzuki X-series bike would be in scale to be about 5'8".
The only character I think which has made for a convincingly female form and a workable vehicle form at the same time is Windblade.
Yeah, I know. I'll show myself out.
I really wish postal workers would stop cramming packages that barely fit into my mail box. I shouldn't have to fiddle with it for a minute and still come out with a damaged box(that was obviously damaged by my mail box and not in the shipping process)!
Maybe you should get a bigger mailbox.
I hate that there seems to be no rhyme or reason to what figures/waves will actually show up at retail, and what ones will be impossible to find. Used to be that, as long as you were patient, you'd find what you wanted. Now there are figures I've legitimately never seen in person.
In the UK we actually have to wait and see what Hasbro sends to our retailers, and it’s not a guarantee we will get a whole wave or the selects and exclusives. We’re also not getting the wave 2 Micromasters domestically for some reason so they’re being imported in small quantities since they don’t sell here, but the problem is that from wave 1 of Siege no stores wanted to carry them anyway besides online and even then it seems like they didn’t get much stock either.
Totally sucks to live over here and now have to worry about whether or not you’re going to be able to source a set or something. I’ve no chance of waltzing down a toy aisle and finding the seeker elite (I did get it preordered on Amazon US as well as the Ironhide and Prowl pack) or that pit of judgement set sitting on a store shelf. Still waiting to see if that judgement pack will even be offered to retailers. It truly sucks, because I’ll end up spending about 2 or 3 times RRP on eBay to ship it over here. Makes it hard to want to continue collecting because it’s become a headache with all the exclusives plus preorders and if Kingdom turns out to be a bit crap then I’ll be glad. It’ll give me a break.
