    Lots of stuff, try and guess what one of them is, I'll give you a hint it starts with an M and involves something that starts with a V.

  1. The Road to Hasbroverse

    I don't know, that they were beyond bad?
  2. The Road to Hasbroverse

    I have strangely mixed feelings. I recognize the Bayverse movies to be truly dreadful movies, but over the years they have become kinda guilty pleasures for me. I'll be happy just as long as they get a competent director for the reboot.
  3. The Transformers Thread Next

    Oh wow. The Bayverse is dead!!! http://news.tfw2005.com/2018/02/16/transformers-cinematic-universe-current-movie-series-rebooted-358641 I don't know how to feel. I recognize they were all horrid movies, but over the years they have become kinda guilty pleasures for me. And unlike some I do like the movieverse designs.
  4. All things Voltron

    I really wanna grab a GX-71 but for the current asking price that some people want on ebay ouch!!! I saw one selling for around 663, as opposed to a thousand +. My question for all those knowledgeable does anyone know if the GX-71 has been knocked off. I just wanna make sure if I pounce I'm getting a legit Bandai product and not some POS that will crumble in my hands when I take it out of the box.
  5. Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    Sadly I didn't think to call the support line. I was just so disgusted with the fact that less than ten minutes after opening mine up it broke. I'm perfectly willing to accept I got a dud. Only one of the two legs broke. As I said I am willing to give these guys a 2nd shot since no one else is reporting theirs breaking.
  6. Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    I'll do my best. This was actually a few months ago. I am talking about the pins that connect the upper part of hips and lower parts of the hips. The joint at the hip that allows the legs to lower in place for Gerwalk mode. I went to lower the leg down into its Gerwalk configuration. This joint if I remember correctly is held together with a metal pin running through it, and it was the outer hinge part that snapped off on both sides of where the ends of the metal pin held them in place, supposedly allowing it to swing down. Does that make sense? Since no one else is ranting about the frailty of this part I suspect I might have just gotten a defective one. Still its an area to watch out for as the plastic struck me as pretty thin in this area of the figure. Maybe I'll give this figure another shot since no one else seems to have had this problem.
  7. Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    I bought mine from BigBadToyStore so it better not have been a bootleg. I gotta admit I was so pissed at the toy, and this is a first for me, I actually threw it out.
  8. Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    I got the Roy Fokker SD and the legs snapped apart at the pins the moment I tried to move them when transforming it into Gerwalk mode. No one else has had this problem?
  9. Hi-Metal R

    Didn't notice the different markings til you pointed them out. Guess I may still pick of the plain vanilla battle pod when the time comes.
  10. Hi-Metal R

    Hey do the 2 regults with the missile pods also come with option parts to make them up as standard regults as well? If that's the case I figure I'll just pick up the missile pod set and just ignore the basic regult Bandai made.
  11. You can count me among those that really didn't notice the facial CGI. I mean when Tarkins walked on I knew it was either CGI or a fantastic makeup job, but I wasn't in anyway distracted by it.
  12. STAR WARS Merchandise Episode - 2

    I was able to slip in and get the Boba Fett pre-ordered at HLJ before it sold out, but I missed out on slave 1. Ended up having to pre-order it BBTS along with the episode 7 x-wing. I E-mailed BBTS because I was wondering how this impacted the current kits they have up for pre-order and this is the response I got Either BBTS is totally oblivious to the situation, Knows something we don't or their supplier is someone who is not able to be bullied by Disney or Bandai. Hope it's the latter 2.
  13. STAR WARS Merchandise Episode - 2

    It still seems strange to me that across the board its primarily Bandai's Plastic Model Kits being targeted by this legal technicality. Here is the best case scenario that I am hoping is true. Bandai/Disney/Revell are, or already have worked out some kind of deal as described above, and the current pressure on asian importers to stop selling the original asian releases is to make sure there is actually enough demand for the kits when they are officially brought onto the international market. That's just my best case scenario speculation. I actually find it encouraging that Revell actually bothered to make any kind of statement regarding peoples justified or unjustified anger at revell for the currently emposed ban. It does show that they have at least noticed fan's dissatifaction with the products they are currently offering and might encourage Revell (if they already haven't) to hash something out with Disney and Bandai to officially import Bandai's kits under Revells name for the international market, or at least make a better line of model kits.
  14. Mad Max 4: Fury Road

    Saw it thought it was great. As for the MRA stuff, I think they just look at Max and realize they can never be as much of a man as him and weep. The fact that they can say the say the same thing about Furiosa probably does not help matters.
  15. I am so getting this still knowing they are going to pull the same BS they pulled with the Dark Knight Batman, where they release a mega deluxe edition with all the features the first one should have initially had. I am of course speaking of the required head and out variants need to simulate how he appeared in his final show down with the T-1000 Complete with a thumbs up hand.
