Official Team Fortress 2 Game Nights (PC)

Hi - We have just received our shipment of Team Fortress figures from NECA. They confirmed our order several months ago, but only delivered about 60% of the quantity we ordered. After further inquiries with NECA, we have learned that they were oversold on this figure and have allocated our order, and we will not receive any other inventory of this figure. We expect to have a small number of cancellations and non-payments from our shipment, which should fill orders placed on or before November 11th, 2012. If you ordered from November 12th to November 22nd, there is a chance your order will fill, but no guarantees. Orders placed after November 22nd are very unlikely to fill, and we recommend using an alternate source if you can.

We are extremely sorry for the problem on this item - NECA had confirmed our order and we did not expect any issues, In the future, we will list only a small amount NECA figures until we can get 100% confirmation from them how many we will actually receive.

To help address this problem, we can offer you a preorder for the BLU Pyro figure at $21.99. We have submitted a large order with NECA for this item already, but they have not yet confirmed our allocation, so we have not yet listed it publicly. We can offer you 1 piece of BLU Pyro for each piece of RED Pyro you currently have on preorder - price is the same at $21.99 each, and is limited to the same amount or less of what you currently have on preorder for RED Pyro.

Simply reply back and tell us if you would like the BLU Pyro, and the quantity you would like. We will fill whatever RED Pyro orders we can, and unfillable orders will be cancelled in a month or so after we work through all pending payments / nonpayments with existing orders.

Sorry for the problem, and thanks for buying from BBTS

Anyone know of an alternate source?

Spam build + self-destruct for massive points

Hmm...true. Still not right it makes you lose points to destruct your equipment to move it.

Only other way around it that I know is to make building not count any points. So building and destruct are 0 points..thoughts?

I just picked up a set on ebay for 39 plus 10 shipping.

I dunno if everyone already saw this or not but I thought it was pretty funny.

Hey, Scout superfans! Scout here. Some doll-makin' company called NECA told us they were gonna make action figures based on the best, most popular team member in TF2. Well, I just opened the box they sent us, and not to tell NECA their business, but MAN these two dolls do not look anything like me.

Don't get me wrong, logically they GOTTA be ME. Right? I just dunno why they didn't start with my traditional outfit, or at the very least Scuba Scout or Kung Fu Fortress Scout or whatever. I guess they're tryin' the most obscure variants first to whet your appetite for the good ol' Classic version.

Still, the way I see it, Chubby Firefighter Scout and for some reason One-Eyed Black Scout are better than no Scout at all. So be sure to hit up your favorite retail establishments (Toys 'R' Us, FYE and Hastings) or online (Amazon and the Valve Store) because these odd-lookin' Scout dolls are gonna sell like odd-lookin' hotcakes

I think it is fine at 0. With the 6v6 minimum no one is going to be doing that for any length of time with any consistency. Plus, I don't think any of us are that starved for points that we would exploit it. If it should be negative maybe half a point or something.

Yeah, terrible night for me too, wasted kritzes all around and horrible aim...

I really hope on the action figures you can get the in game code without having to open the packaging. I'd like to keep it in good shape in case it's worth money one day.

NECA sells some excellent stuff. Gumbie is getting this for Christmas next year:

Dude..

I was sitting a meeting at work, screwing off on my iPad and saw that. I seriously almost started laughing and completely lost my sh*t.

Well Tboon can't let this stand.

That was me as the medic there in the video. I saw you kill the Demo just before i could pop the uber. I was surprised I lived that long once i charged into the building after the uber wore off.

Taking a short TF2 break, so you will have to keep the home fires backs burning for me.

Really annoyed that the Pyro figures from BBTS didn't go through, however their customer service was really really fast and kind, so kudos there.

I got the email too and just canceled my preorder with them and got one through the valve store. It's the same price so no reason to wait around for if I may or may not get one from them.

That would be pretty awesome, I ordered an extra set just in case.

For sure, Qball, and free kritz tonight for anyone who knows which game has the legendary Pollo Diablo (without cheating on Google!)

No you can't get the code without opening it, then people would just read the codes off the box before they are even sold...

Also, at this point don't bother with the code. It is apparently just a normal brigade helm, not anything special.

Well I really hope that is not true, I would be sad if the in game content was lame, do you have a source for that info?

Nothing official, I just read it off a couple other forums from people that already have the figures.

Man, Monday night was not my night.

My understanding was that that was a placeholder in the schema file, that would presumably be replaced in an update after the figures got shipped.

But I know nothing, Italy very well be a brigade helm.

Had fun for a little while tonight, sorry I was getting lost a little. I am trying to remember where to go during different games on different maps. Hope I wasn't frustrating anyone.

Psych's Themesong

Such a huge difference from playing on a random pub server. But I managed to die less (D:R) this time. Holding back more often, instead of just
charge and see what is ahead of me (sentries and me being outnumbered most of the times).
So the stats are good for something at least. Funny fact that Medic is chosen the least by players.
