  1. you can NEVER have enough WRX/WRC/STI Impreza's.........unless of course they released a EVO....preferably the 3 or 7. Now that car takes the cake. @firedevil@ But I do agree, the Ford GT would make a nice Sunstreaker
  2. I WANT THAT!!! Silverstreak looks amazing and I love the idea of him being a regular WRX and the small changes look great.
  3. It could be unprofitable still, although the mold have already been created, it might have to be altered, which costs money. Producing megs would result in other costs as well, example: packaging, labour, marketing, etc. However, if they could make a profit on him, then yes, I agree, they are choosing not to do it. But the rational behind this could be several factors, perhaps the biggest is opportunity costs. The basic theory is, why produce Megs when he will only earn us a little profit, when we could simply produce another reissue that can be sold at TRU and make us a lot more. It's just good business sense. And Botcon exclusives do not generate that much profit for them. Not to mention, considering the prices they go for.... If the same was true for megs, then it would be about the same price to just get the Takara version.
  4. WOW What's impressive is not as much the number of figures you have, it's the exclusives and rares. They make your collection stand out from the rest. however....i can hear all the MISB collectors crying right now..... @screamer@
  5. Yes they did order prime, but TRU did as well. TRU is where a large portion of their revenue comes from in regards to the reissues. Take away TRU and your revenue will decrease by a large amount, which could make it unprofitable to produce him.
  6. I have to disagree about megatron though. Even if hasbro was able to put it out to specialty stores, the question then becomes is it profitable to do so? Hasbro gets their money from stores not from customers. It would not be profitable for Hasbro to produce megatron because most likely they won't recieve enough orders for him from specialty shops. Hasbro wants to make money (although some of their past actions have led me to question this) They are aware of G1 megatron, and they also are aware that there are those of us who would love him to be reissued. If hasbro believed such a venture would make them money, they would, however as it stands right now, they do not.
  7. Snarl is the one who is missing in the movie, however he does make a few brief appearances. In season 3 he is shown several times, so the guy's still around. I read somewhere that he was originally supposed to be in the movie, but they took him out for some reason. Probably had something to do with his voice actor. Not really sure on that.
  8. bring a jacket with lots of pockets and your largest bag and take your own "personal tour" of the place. You never know what might be lying around. @firedevil@
  9. "Only Human" was one of my favourite post-movie episodes, cobra commander saying, "I guess they just don't make terrorists like they used to......... cobr *cough cough* " That was classic. ooh and Spiderman also showed up in the Transformers comic too.

    Rumor

    Doubt it. They won't be planning anything until they see the success/failure of MP Prime. If this source did know somebody, most likely it was just "talk" about what the company would do if Prime was a huge success. I'd say it would be more likely that we would see updated versions of those you mentioned under Alternators or even Energon (galvatron and Rodimus)
  11. The TRU downtown across from Eaton's Centre in Toronto has just recieved mission disk figures (mindbender, beachhead, firefly, etc etc). Could it be that perhaps the sale on the wave 1's that they still had in stock was to make room for the newer waves? Maybe we are getting figures afterall.....
  12. From reading what people in the "know" have said on other transformers boards *cough* orson *cough* The corvette should be Tracks because A) Tracks in G1 was a corvette Most importantly, when Orson was asked why Sideswipe wasn't named Tracks since his mode (minus the head) resembled him, he stated something along the lines of "cause tracks is a corvette"
  13. my toy collecting/playing has been pretty good. My parents don't really care so no need to hide anything from them. A lot of my friends collect toys too and some of them still play with their's, so they understand. And my girlfriend doesn't mind, she actually helps me to look for them and actually listens to me when I talk/rant about them. She thinks some of the figures are cool.
  14. I don't have this problem with my gi joes, since lately i've only been buying loose ones off ebay and trade forums to army build, but I do have the same problem with my Transformers. I switched from being someone who played and collected them to someone who just collects. I try to keep most of the MISB or MOSC, but certain figures I do open up (usually the ones that can be put back into the box) I find that opening some and keeping others sealed to work better then just trying to keep everything boxed up. But when it comes to my rares collection, everything stays boxed up and behind glass.
  15. umm, actually TRU or Walmarts selling packs at 1.99 does not concern Hasbro. TRU had to pay hasbro already for the packs, so despite having lowered prices and more sales, that wont affect hasbro because they would only be paid for the amount that TRU ordered from them. The selling price of figures is entirely up to TRU, so basically even if TRU was to sell out of GI Joes on Black friday, that won't be of conern to hasbro. The only purpose that it does serve would be to empty out the pegs so that the new line gets the consumers full attention.
  16. sorri to bud into Cmdr_Y's topic, but i thought it was best to not start an entirely new topic for this but I was wondering if anyone could possibly pick a few Alley viper/viper packs for me? I live in canada so possibility of getting them is zero..... I was planning on taking a trip to New York in December, but since they are being cancelled, i'm assuming that they won't even be around by then. If anyone could help me out I would very much appreciate it.
  17. I figured most likely people would have taken them already, after reading about all the people who were asking for the viper/alley viper packs.... I'm really only trying to collect the vipers, as to start up my viper army.
  18. Hi, first time poster, long time lurker =) Any ways, I was wondering if you would be able to purchase about 4-6 viper/alley viper packs. If you are able to get them from target, that would be great, because shipping over to Toronto Canada sometimes costs alot, so any amount of money I can save on the product is nice, but if you can't that's alright. Thanks.
