But McDuck was a honest guy.
Heh, an honest multi-billionaire, that's, um, rich.
It is what it is. I am gonna buy the trailer regardless, just for completeness
Oh, did people not know Toy Dojo got Giuliano this past Thursday?
Oh I am gonna take a metric shit ton of flak for this, but I can resist. So here it is, I am wearing my helmet and await all of you apologists (both of yourselves and your fan companies) to attack.
And thats exactly the reasoning that brought us here. I suppose having this view point does help alleviate the fact of been a part of a problem, or simply dont caring for those that are been affected. Its a classic case of:
''First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.''
OFC, its also another thing. You can replace the last line with "They will not come for me because I am a good boy and always say yes, because I can."
I was about to create a chronicle on how we came from Mp36 to here in the span of 4 years, and how every single step of all of them, both official and otherwise taking a piss on their fan base, more and more with each passing release, where you are justifying everything and you are finding a convenient excuse. But I am not going to do that. After all the braincells of this fandom combined, has been proven time and again that you cant forsee anything thats going to happen in the next 2 seconds, let alone about taking complex thoughts, market policies of cause and effect and reactionary developments. After all these things, are not posted on the internet and wikis.
Instead I am regretting for been mean to ibot in my previous post. Instead I congratulate him. Not only him, I also congratulate Fans toy, and Takara and everyone else that has and will in the future grab our asses. After all we grew accustomed it and we like it.
So thank you for been asses openly. I myself appreciate your honesty at least. Well played indeed!
To the rest of us, lets enjoy our trailers, astrotrains and ofc the dust thats left from our Hounds!
Dude, it’s just an expensive toy! Overreact much??? Wow.
If thats what makes you feel comfortable. I didnt expect you to get the point to begin with.
You’re equating being charged more than you’d like for a plastic toy with having your door kicked in by secret police who’ve come to drag you to a death camp. What exactly is your point?
Τhe fact that you replied thus, means that there is no point in explaining. Are you seriously believing what you are typing here, trolling or your reasoning capabilities are so impaired?
okay you do you...
Today its collectibles, tomorrow its food and water. We are like plump juicy money lemons with a lifetime of blood sweat and tears as currency to be harvested
The question I asked him, was rather rhetorical in nature as I knew he couldnt actually answer it from the onset. If he could his reply wouldnt be what it was.
But what you say here is not my point either (assuming you forgot to blue tint it).
I put forth an extreme case of willful ignorance, when someone is put before a problem with serious repercussions, for the people that constitute his environment. Yet the 'subject' chooses the easy path of ignoring a problem, as far as it deems that it doesnt affect him (falsely), till it comes round to bite him in the ass. An extreme example of ignorance on the group level, and inability to see the big picture in a set of events.
I didnt have the intention of correlating to what ever is going to happen to the world at large, only what is happening on our hobby.
I think I asked this somewhere else, a few days ago, but do we (as a group) honestly believe that is TFSource only (and every retailer, I dont label TFC alone) thats into this?
this reminds me of when video cards sky rocketed because of bitcoin farmers. The Bitcoin craze stopped but the prices stayed up because they saw that the video cards sold regardless. In this case covid will resolve itself but the associated price increases will by far and large stay. Shit goes up but doesn't come back down
Video cards, AMD and NVIDIA. Comic books, a handful of publishers. Magic: The Gathering collector’s booster craze... these are just my other hobbies where companies are pushing prices.
Market competition is the answer. But unfortunately the 3P hobby has seen a reduction in the top performing companies. We can hope for a comeback in 2021.
XTB has lost their god damn minds.
So at this point, I wonder what Youth Wildrider and Youth Motormaster are going to cost.... let alone the omnibots. I will have to pass on the trailer... wasn't planning on having the stunticons displayed as a combiner anyway.
Action Robo is $189 + shipping
* PRE-ORDER * X-Transbots: MX-12B Trailer for Gravestone ( $10 DEPOSIT )
I've had two orders cancelled by them due to being unable to ship. It may have just been to current world conditions (and they refunded me fully), but just be wary.
Not even an accurate description of what comes with it. The sword and gun are with motormaster are they not?
