I've decided to sell my Takara LG10 Arcee, complete with all accessories, instructions, and original box. I only ever transformed her once, from alt-mode to robot straight after opening her. This is the better-colored version of the Generations Arcee.

Sorry about the basement problems, my friends water heater also busted and ruined a bunch of his comics. I don't wish moving on anyone, but at least you're making a good profit on your hard work?

i've lived in this town most of my life and i never realise there's a giant (well, a little over man-sized) soundwave knockoff hanging off the balcony of the local 80s bar. it looks like it's been there forever.

also very sorry to hear that rhyno. i lived in a house with chronic damp problems and i am still dealing with the health consequences from that, and still trying to get the mildew smell out of half of my possessions.

This is apparently the first repaint of ER Prime. It's not Nemesis Prime, it's Dead Optimus Prime.

Itís funny because my main complaint about ER Prime is that there is too much gray on him. This wouldnít look bad, since his trailer turns into a bed for Optimus. What thirty to forty year old wouldnít want a reminder of the cartoon moment that traumatized them?

We bought from an elderly man and his sons handled pretty much everything. The oldest was PISSED when they got caught. They paid but they pissed and moaned through the entire process.



Been pouring over listings for hours, I keep finding great options but no basements or large room spaces. My wife suggested we look at the option of buying a large shed for the backyard and convert it into a space for my crap. I've seen lots of backyard shed conversions so that's definitely an option.

We passed by a house that still had the sign up for sale so we looked at it online and holy poo poo it was perfect so of course it was sold.

I am SO PISSED at myself. I wanted to sell my Arcee, so I tried transforming it from robot mode back to car mode for the first time SINCE I GOT IT so I could take a photo of it all boxed up, and the right thumb cracked off like a G.I. Joe.

Call them up and offer a lil more than the previous people. If I ever learned anything from the Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase, it is that everyone has a price.

A few years ago I was dusting my Beast Wars stuff when I accidentally brushed my 10th anniversary reissue Dinobot off the shelf, and even though it was a short fall onto carpet as soon as he hit the floor the figure just exploded into about a dozen chunks and shards of gold plastic. If it's any consolation, I cringed and uttered "fuuuuuuck" the same as I did that day when I read your post just now.

I'm also belatedly really sorry about your house too Rhyno, that definitely sucks a lot harder

man, I remember getting voyager brainstorm, before the titans return one, getting home and taking it out of the box, and halfway through the transformation the entire shoulder just sheared right off the body.

condolences!

I also had the Soul of Chogokin Daizengar and Aussenseiter, and Daizengar took a dive off my old figure shelf before I got detolfs, and his foot just went flying across the room, the diecast metal snapping off the ankle. 300 dollar figure set, donezo. luckily I was able to sell it for close to what I paid to someone who had the means to fix it, but man, that was the biggest drat bummer.

Same. Iím slowly weaning off TFSource and BBTS.

May I ask why not just have like an extra bedroom/office for the toys? Not enough space? Itís what Iím doing and it has worked out well, but this place is a reconverted duplex older than the Transcontinental Railroad so its dimensions can be weird.

Didnít see any restock at Walmart, but I did find one out of three Netflix Ultra Magnus that didnít have its box tampered with. I know itís an unpopular opinion, but I prefer the darker colors to Siege UMís damaged look.

My Takara one's wobblier than I'd like but it was okay last year

I still need to get around to repairing Quantron Afterburner though, one side of his canopy busted at the joint where it folds in half, and the repair part Maketoys sent me looks like it will do the exact same thing.

Sorry about your basement, Rhyno! I'm glad your stuff didn't get damaged.

Yeah, Iíve never ever had a bad time with BBTS outside of slow shipping. They replaced my FT Hydra wholesale, no charge, when it broke on me on the forty day mark after I bought it.

But TCP is SUPER fast.

I jumped off BBTS when I ordered something - I think it was Reflector - and not only did every other big toy have it before they got the order in even WalMart and Target did. I switched to TFSource, although I guess I should switch to TCP?

BBTS' customer service is second to none, but my FT Iceman still hasn't even hit Pile of Loot yet, and judging by Sheridan probably won't for another two weeks. People have had this thing forever, it feels like.

I use TFSource since they're based out of Vegas so shipping only takes around two days to get to me even with the cheapest shipping, BBTS is based out of the midwest so when they do eventually ship it takes like another week to make it to the west coast. They used to be notoriously bad about getting things late but have been a lot better for the last several years.

The Cyberverse cartoon has finished its run fully overseas and IMO the third season is the best Transformers show since Beast Wars, despite the frustratingly low production value.

(I don't care much for Prime).

Why would it do that!?

It is good, I also watched the last episode posted yesterday, the Quintessons are a bit too wacky though. No idea why they've kept Bumblebee in the title when he is barely in a lot of episodes now. Also a bit annoying that the Basics spoiled a lot about the series while the episodes were still being released to many.
