So when do you think they will finally come out with new ones???

I'm hoping they will soon :D!

kskerr
04-29-2006, 12:48 PM
I'm wistfull thinking it and going with May :)

Giardia

I'm hoping July, because i should have all the current microbes by June. Then, I can start the new ones the next month!

kskerr
04-30-2006, 06:51 PM
If they came out later there would be less temptation for me to buy them before the holidays too... But I want them now!!!!

Giardia
05-01-2006, 11:13 PM
If they come out this month, I'll eat a rock.

kskerr
05-02-2006, 12:01 AM
A rock eh, make sure it is a small one and not a sharp one... Don't choke or impale yourself!!! So Canadians like to eat rocks... Funny Northerners! Do you have northern lights up there?

I'm still clinging to the April date I was given and hoping they're just running a little late, so this month. :)

I hope its May because my birthday's in May

kskerr
05-02-2006, 10:38 PM
I think we all just want them ASAP :D!!!

Giardia
05-02-2006, 11:06 PM
They said april?? OH NO!! I don't want to eat a rock!

kskerr
05-03-2006, 12:08 AM
Not sure if ya'll have it up north but we have something called rock candy down here, if so eat that, it kinda counts! You can make it though I never did, my sisters tried but as I recall failed...

bleck, I hate rock candy!

kskerr
05-05-2006, 12:57 AM
Which is better, a rock or rock candy? I didn't really like rock candy either, I am a chocolate person!

Giardia
05-28-2006, 02:18 PM
so am I. Yaaay, may's almost over. maybe I won't have to eat a rock!:D

kskerr

May 31 and nothing on the site, no rocks for you!

But no microbes for us :(

06-04-2006, 10:52 PM
Someday they will come, we just have to have hope and faith...

Giardia
06-04-2006, 11:26 PM
I bet it will be this month, actually, though I'd rather july. I'll have money, then.:D ;)

kskerr
06-04-2006, 11:36 PM
But we say that every month...

I picked "Forever" because there was no option "When Hell freezes over". I don't mind waiting unless someone gives a date and then misses it. Then they're late and that's plain rude.

Pollock
06-16-2006, 07:43 PM
I think someone said there was a tentative plan for July... and I really hope that's the truth.

kskerr
06-16-2006, 08:34 PM
I think one problem is there are so many rumors, people supposedly getting e-mails from them and such... If there is a tentative date or something the admin or whatever should put it on the main page or post it here...

Giardia
06-16-2006, 10:05 PM
*batts eyelashes and waits for admin to come...*

kskerr
06-17-2006, 02:07 AM

Oh well, at least the admin has been getting rid of those stupid porn and med and such ads that have been cluttering up the place!

Oh well, at least the admin has been getting rid of those stupid porn and med and such ads that have been cluttering up the place!

I e-mailed him about it and my boyfriend and I (we run our own forum) gave him a few protection suggestions.

I hope he takes them, those things are very annoying!

Giardia
06-20-2006, 10:58 PM
yeah, they really are! They should also get rid of the users who posted the "spam"

kskerr
06-21-2006, 02:34 AM
They just clutter up the site and all, get in our way!

Giardia
06-30-2006, 10:04 PM
Omigosh. it's june 30th today. Still no new microbes...Maybe they will come out on July first...that would be cool. I could order microbes on Canada Day...take my mind off all the bloody fireworks exploding in the middle of the night, making it impossible to sleep...they better be out this month! I have money from my report card...i'm loaded...i'd like new ones before the money is spent...perhaps I should stop this mindless rambling...

kskerr
07-05-2006, 12:08 AM
July 4th and no microbes so no Canada Day celebration or Independance day treats, oh well I got to see awesome fireworks. We managed to get so close they were right over our heads, it was awesome!!! I love fireworks, wish I could have spent the holiday in Indiana where I could buy and blow them up, Illinois has them illegal and it is so lame, we can barely have sparklers, bloody lame (te he bloody)! Though if I had some fireworks I would not blow them off late at night, I am considerate blower upper. I believe it should be a constitutional right that I celebrate my country's independance by blowing up a small peice of it :D!!!!

I wish the microbes would hurry up and come out already. I also wish that my mom would hurry up and buy me another microbe already.

Giardia
08-01-2006, 05:45 PM
I already have them all...I wish they would come out with the new ones already! The aquatics sound interesting...:D

kskerr
08-04-2006, 01:15 AM
I am getting very impatient for the new ones!

Giardia
08-04-2006, 10:47 PM
me too! they were supposed to come out in summer...well, summer is this month! soon it will be fall, then winter, and pretty soon, next summer at this rate!

kskerr
08-06-2006, 12:07 AM
I need them to come out before Christmas so that I can have something inexpensive to ask my family members for!

Giardia
08-06-2006, 01:30 PM
i need them before my birthday...which is in october! but i'd like them this month so I can buy a couple...by the sound of it, they are releasing alot! i'd like to get a head start before my birthday and christmas!

kskerr
08-07-2006, 02:52 AM
The more the better, especially since then there is more of a chance of people getting me the ones they want, sadly they tend to bicker about who gets to give me what, my mom is the worst too! Then I open them and she is all like "I wanted to get you that one but Laura got it first" and is not as happy with what she did get me, she does not understand that I love them all and besides sometimes I like one for reasons other than it looks cool (I think they all look cool anyway), like pimple was awesome since it was related to my first grad school research organism...

Giardia
08-07-2006, 10:27 PM
my family doesn't really argue...they all give me money, exept for my parents and brother, who get me stuff

kskerr
08-08-2006, 02:44 AM
Sometimes I get money from some of my family, not my siblings though. Parents and aunts are most likely to give me money, especially if I can't think of something for them to get me and they don't find something.

I was talking to a rep today with the online chat feature and she had said that they are aiming for end of August/early september. Take it with a grain of salt as dates change and nothing is set in stone. She did however tell me that 2 of the new ones would be the red and white blood cell.

Giardia
08-11-2006, 01:15 PM
i suggested those two!

Pollock
08-12-2006, 01:43 AM
Good, they'll come about the time my wallet recovers.


And to keep you busy while you wait patiently, I found this online:

That pic is so cute :D!!!! So in the next month or so we might get new friends, we'll see... I am turning quite cynical I think... Blood cells, hmph, I want microbes not human cells, I'll only get the human cells since I want to have all of them but I'll still be snobby about them. They better be totally adorable!

Giardia
08-13-2006, 11:29 AM
how could these guys not turn out cute? (It's obvious which is the white blood cell)...

kskerr
08-13-2006, 09:41 PM
That is a very very good pic of them, and I suppose they can be justified since microbes can infect them (malaria the RBC and AIDS and the plague WBC)... Also WBC's are immune defense against them.

Pollock
08-14-2006, 02:41 AM
Aww, the white blood cells are going to be all fluffy and soft and snuggly cute!

kskerr
08-14-2006, 10:57 AM
I wonder what kind of white cell they will make, probably macrophage... My mom saw the puppy pic, she says they should have taken a pic of it with mad cow.

Giardia
08-15-2006, 11:47 AM
Instead of the fuzzy one, they could do something like this:
http://www.bluegrass.kctcs.edu/LCC/BSN/BIO/BiologyLabs/BIO139/139Lab1/Lab1Images/WBC-Monocyte1.jpg

It would be cool, because it would have the purple thing with the white (the purple is the cell's nucleus)! the fuzzy one would be just as cool...I'm curious to know wether the eyes on the RBC are going to be on the top of the "disc" or on the side...
Don't forget, they're releasing Malaria as well...it can't live without a host cell:p

Pollock
08-15-2006, 05:38 PM

Oh no! The puppy does look like a Mad Cow puppy!

I just spoke to a customer representative who said there have been production hold-ups and they don't expect to release them until November. :(

15 wow, if that is true then I can see why it would take a bit longer perhaps...

kskerr
08-30-2006, 11:17 PM
They should add a coming soon section for us to drool over, give us some hope and all....

Giardia
08-31-2006, 09:36 PM
Yeah, show the ones that are coming soon on the site, to look at and not buy until they are officially released

hi,im new here but ive known about giant microbes for,say,3 years.i have 16 right now,i forget witch ones ,any way,i heard they are out in august/september,but none are out:eek: . Also,in GERMany,there is a weird germ found in no other country,you can only buy it it in GERMany:( !
also,there are shirts,they just dont sell them:mad: .o well,ohh,and they are going to have an oral hygine thing in 2007!!!!:D

09-02-2006, 02:52 AM
They should give us cool forum members an advance release for being such loyal fans ;)

Giardia
09-02-2006, 11:01 AM
or at least send us an e-mail with every single new microbe they are releasing

kskerr

Yes, they should!!!

I asked them, and they never replied

kskerr
09-03-2006, 12:44 PM
Oh welcome Tubuculosis, I did not see your post somehow, likely checked this thing after a long day (being a grad student most days qualify) or something. Hmm I'll have to check out the german site about this alleged bug only they get (what is it called?), the US generally gets all of them and way before they are released overseas, think we even beat out Canada. If they do get their own bug then I will be jealous and of course have my friend who is living there right now get it for me!

OK I just went and found it and it does exsist! Of course the entire site is in german so I had to do some translating (well the internet did, I didn't), first I searched for the "organism" and it only had three sites come up, one asian and two german, which I found odd, even unusual bugs generally have more stuff and definately something in english on them. Then I copied the blurb into the translator and it confused me since not all words would translate I could not make sense of it. So then I typed the name into the translator and it came back with "Soccar fever", it is a made up bug! Now I can kinda see why it is not here, that sport is just not that big here, we have too many stupid sports so it has not really caught on too much. I think Rugby would be more interesting to have catch on anyway, that one looks interesting, and many of the players I saw were hot... Now I need to decide how much I want this bug...

Tuburculosis
09-03-2006, 01:23 PM
no,no,i dont live in germany,i just check all 4 web sites:rolleyes: .
i want it too:( !its "fuss ball fever",translated to soccer fever.http://www.riesenmikroben.de/#

kskerr
09-04-2006, 02:47 PM
At first I thought you meant you were from Germany and wrote my post with yous instead of theys but then I looked at your profile and edited it, and added my findings about the bug... I have a friend in germany who can likely get it for me if I decide I need it (think I do otherwise it is like a gaping hole in my collection even though it is a fake disease...) and they won't let an american order it from the german version of the site.

Tuburculosis
09-04-2006, 05:15 PM
your lucky you have a freind there,theres none on ebay:mad: :( :confused: :eek:

kskerr
09-05-2006, 05:54 PM
Did you try ordering from the german site?

Tuburculosis
09-05-2006, 07:18 PM
NO:confused:

kskerr
09-05-2006, 11:11 PM
I am not sure if it lets us but if you want it you could try and see if it lets you, before getting too upset about it not being on ebay or whatever... Never know, it might let you, probably cost more unfortunately.

Tuburculosis
09-06-2006, 02:43 PM
we both order from the same contry,write?:o :o :o :oYou said you looked at my profile,it says long island!long island is in the usa.

kskerr
09-06-2006, 07:50 PM
Yes I am aware that you are in the US and that we both would generally order from the US site, I am suggesting that perhaps it is possible to be in the US but order from the german site since it is the only one that has soccar fever...

Giardia
09-07-2006, 10:17 PM
soccar fever? germany has one that we don't have?

I have plenty of things to spend money on, just no money to spend on them, my bank account is going to start crying very soon and sob for 10 days until I get my monthly pay, goodness I wish I was still on weekly checks, or even every other week...

Allegedly coming in November. Given the number of rumors that have come and proved false I am a skeptic! I did sign up for the GIANTmicrobes newletter and to be alerted when new products come out, you can sign up on the main page, so far I have not gotten anything from that...

t4? what is that?TB what does TB even do?

kskerr
09-17-2006, 07:29 PM
T4 is a kind of bacteriophage (or just phage), which is a virus that only infects bacteria. T4 a member of one of the coolest looking kind of phage, they look like little lunar lander things, or at least that is how they are commonly described. Here is a pic I made using an art program back in high school, it is not drawn at all to scale but it shows about what the phage look like, they are the green things: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/29691398/?qo=49&q=by%3Akskerr+sort%3Atime+-in%3Ascraps

mazuac
09-17-2006, 07:33 PM
WOW!!! you drew that? holy smokes! thats incredible! i mean... WOWOWOWOWOWOW! and i thought that all viruses looked like that?

kskerr
09-17-2006, 07:56 PM
Thanks, I did not exactally draw it, it is digital art. I put shapes together, defined the colors and peiced it all together. I kinda laugh at it now because of how horribly off the scale is, but it is kinda cool looking and did earn me an A so it is not all bad.

Most viruses do not, many look like just the head of that one though.

mazuac

The one that looks like it's sort of draped over Ebola? That one is the flu.

There is no such thing as pox in these things. It is flu with ebola in front of it which is what gives it the skinny look. The pic is not very good I don't think...

I had to tell someone the other day that if untreated, syhpilis can turn your bain to mush. She didn't believe me, but she looked really worried... it made me wonder.

That does sound suspicious... Takes a long time to progress to stage 4, unlikely she would be anywhere near that far along if she has it...

it is strange...if you quick jump to new products the picture shows more of the little green thing, and it's coiled...check it out and see for yourself!

That is interesting. It looks exactly like a green version of syphilis...since it's on the banner that displays only newly released products, could it be a hint of things to come, or something that was supposed to be released but wasn't?
