Black Friday deals were shit, heres hoping Cyber Monday is better edition.
Old Thread here: >>5305640
That is an option certainly. But I'm somewhat of a completionist if I want something.
Still, what I could do I guess is get a black set and a purple set, and just use those for Defensor and Menasor. Superion really is a solid rock all by himself.
THE GIFTENING HAS BEGUN
Everyone should now be shopping for their assignments, and try your best to have your packages shipped by the first week in December. Shipping slows waaaaaay down during the holiday season, so get those packages out early to ensure they get there by Christmas!
To protect yourself from false Grinching accusations (who would do such a thing?) you can send me the tracking info or a picture of the package before you send it. This is important because Grinches will be put on a list that I will give to the Secret Santa organizer next year, so...

Finally bought the bulk of my person's gift. I skipped going to the Lawrence Arms Christmas Show just to get you something extra. Now I'm gonna fill it up with some other goodies and send it out next week. I'm pretty excited.
I'll give Star Wars: The Force Awakens one thing, it has somehow managed to resurrect Micro Machines.
I mean really, last time I saw MMs was back in something like 2003
Well *actually* they were discontinued in 2006 by Hasbro. (So I may have gotten my date wrong).
Well I haven't actually bought any, however from the packaging I can tell they're using the original molds for some of the original trilogy stuff and I'm pretty sure they did a repaint for one of the new Force Awakens characters.
Honestly, my hope is that this might, *might* get Hasbro to revive the MM line. Then again seeing how they handled it when they bought it off Galoob that's probably not worth seeing. Hope springs eternal though and all that...
Anyway, anyone else still have their collection?
It's been a while since I've seen an unboxing thread, and I just got this. Don't even remember what I ordered.
Glad you're here, Greg. Thanks for bringing culture to every thread.
Anyone have experience with this? Thinking if getting it.
Does anyone have that list of /toy/-related tumblrs, twitters, etc? I finally made a tumblr and I can't remember any of the names. Thanks.
Can we get a toy repair general going?
Recently a dude I know gave me a box of busted toys he's amassed over the years and I'm slowly fixing up some of them. In the box there were two busted threea figures I think look pretty neat but one has had a wrist peg snapped off in the socket and then crudely dug out leaving the socket way to big for a new wrist peg to fit into. Does anybody have any advice on how to tighten up the socket so a new wrist peg will stay in it without falling out?
This is your friend, you can either put it into the socket itself, or coat the peg. Let it dry for 24 hours and it will add a clear layer to the figure, Can scrape it off with a knife, or add more if it's not stiff enough. I use it for loose joints mainly but when I originally bought the white MoMo girl her peg was too thin to stick properly so I just put two coats in the socket painting it on with a cotton swab.
For what purpose
>tfw those three awesome series from last season will never get any figures, not even statueshit
It's surprising that the Monster Girls haven't received figures in some form, I can see them being very popular. Hell I'd be down for grabbing the Spider chick and the Lamia just because there really aren't any other options for either type for figure in a 5-6"ish scale.
Hasbro and Mattel are two of the largest toy companies in America (and possibly in the world as well). Which company do you think is better and why? I can't really say, as my only experience with Mattel was their old Food Fighters figures...
Both have their faults but at least hasbro has properties that for the most part actual move.
Meanwhile mattel lives off monster high barbie and hot wheels. Most of their other lines don't really do much. Their boys toys are basically just hot wheels.
For collectors like us that aren't hot wheels fags I'd say both are 5/10 companies. There are better ways to get better DC and marvel toys for the most part, then tfs usually (sometimes kinda) are better by takara so their offerings are better to go for (kinda).
I see hasbro making more fun toys for kids and giving their adult fans what they kinda want.
Where mattel forces you to subscribe to a membership if want there he-man/DC stuff and their QC is horrible (for example 66' batman line). Also they release items that are really overpriced like the bck2thefurture hoverboard and the batmoblie that costed a ton of money for hollow plastic
Your opinions on 3rd party transformers
Anything my mmc, maketoys, fans toys is going great to be good.
Fansproject, warbotron, planet x all have very good quality for the most part.
KFC and x transbots are the only companies with aby issues that I can think of.
Howdy, let me tell you a story, but first the tldr part because it may bore you.

New Toys!!!!! Get Them Now!!!!!!!!
It may not be the best place for that but I just don't know where to ask... I love lego, I'm a collector since many many years, but for some complicated reason I want to sell my entire collection... I just don't know what price to ask. I don't expect to make a lot of money, I've probably spent more than I will get. What is the best way to evaluate it?
>gather bricks in large bin(s)
>weigh on scale
>find average prices for similar amounts on eBay
I sold about 20 pounds for around $200 a few years ago after I picked through and gathered all of the "valuable" bits and minifigs and sold those separately.
I can't recommend this. I started listing my bins of parts for sale through Bricklink recently and it takes forever.
I suggest rebuilding what sets you can and sell those first. If you list lots on eBay you'll have to break them up into USPS large flat rate boxes, otherwise shipping costs will be complete bullshit.
