Unless we're talking about the guy from Hunger Games, President Snow. He has feet.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:33 PM)

Snow doesn't have feet. It's just piles of frozen water.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:29 PM)

you wish, bud. let's see those bastards operate under six feet of snow

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:28 PM)

What I got out of that was that Canada really wants to have a plague of locusts unleashed upon them.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:25 PM)

y'see, under canadian law all broadcasting corporations operate under a mandate that at least 40% of the content they broadcast must be Canadian content. Naturally, this applies to kid's cartoon channels as well, which is a fairly niche market these days. So animators slap together very cheaply animated flash cartoons and air them in the daytime hours to fill the quota. Hence endless reruns of Johnny Test, Almost Naked Animals, etc.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (21 May 2016 - 09:25 PM)

Chaos is bad for business, y'see.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:17 PM)

You're a criminal mastermind. Shouldn't you want to wreak havoc?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (21 May 2016 - 09:16 PM)

You really want to be responsible for the creation of giant radioactive moose?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:13 PM)

Well, I didn't wanna have to do this, but it looks like we have to nuke Canada.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:12 PM)

Johnny Test isn't even the worst of it? Mother of God...

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:04 PM)

But in Canada, Johnny Test is just one of many terrible flash cartoons. It's not even the worst one.

@  ShadowMan024 : (21 May 2016 - 08:49 PM)

Pft. Cartoon Network aired Johnny Test TEN times a day for a loooooong time.

@  The Doctor Who : (21 May 2016 - 08:01 PM)

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 07:52 PM)

My condolences. It's always sad to hear of the death of a loved one...or someone's sanity.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 07:44 PM)

Back in the days when I watched TFP on TV, they sometimes aired it six or seven times a day.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 07:44 PM)

You don't know the pain of Johnny Test until you live in Canada.

@  tffan01 : (21 May 2016 - 07:36 PM)

Anyone watched the piece of shit called the Supernoobs on Cartoon Network? It somehow managed to be worse than Johnny Test or Uncle Grandpa. It's jokes are cliche, the show is boring with stereotypical characters.

@  Confuzor : (21 May 2016 - 06:59 PM)

No euphemism. Just old farts doing stuff they shouldn't.

@  Paladin : (21 May 2016 - 06:54 PM)

unless "bounce house" is a euphemism for somethign else....

@  Confuzor : (21 May 2016 - 06:14 PM)

30 year old bodies were not meant for Bounce Houses. Oof.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2016 - 04:31 PM)

Shouldn't Sideshow be a different article?

@  ShadowMan024 : (21 May 2016 - 04:19 PM)

That's just my opinion, if you want a better viewpoint, go ask in the TFWiki thread.

@  ShadowMan024 : (21 May 2016 - 04:18 PM)

Yeah, you could probably go a bit more in depth about Sideshow Collectibles.

I was recently reading Susp's well-crafted review of the recent Power Core Combiners Huffer & Caliburst two-pack and noticed that the pictures that he had posted showed a toy with a slight but very noticeable difference from mine. (Review here).

Those who have acquired PCC Huffer, this question: Does your Huffer sport a hood that is colored a brighter shade of orange than the orange used on the rest of the figure (like his) or does your Huffer's hood match the shade of orange used on the rest of the figure (like mine)?

Pics of your Huffer figures are appreciated, but not necessary, and a mention of which country you acquired the figure in as well as when you might have bought it would be very helpful. I'm just trying to piece together whether this variance was a standard running change (I acquired my Huffer about 3 months after Susp got his), an international-market variant (I bought mine in Canada) or a simple error (either version).

Thanks!

My Huffer's orange is homogeneous, and I'm in the US.
It was probably from the first patch that showed up in my area sometime last month.

My orange has a very distinctive bright orange hood that doesn't even try to match the rest of him.

I got him from TRU.com.

Near as I can tell, all of the initial release of Huffers in the US have the mismatched orange hood. My observation suggests this was corrected relatively quickly, though. What Huffer's I've seen in stores recently almost all show the matching hood as best I can tell.

Same here. I just thought it was an odd deco quirk. I might start checking out the Huffers in stock locally a little more closely since I'm having an issue with the locking tab on the cab/shoulders.

Weird, I like the extra splash of bright color that the mismatched orange hood provides. It always seemed deliberate to me, since it wasn't even close to the plastic color, and the character was originally bright orange. Seems a little too dull with the mustard colored hood.

Yeah, same. The molds colorscheme is much more boring in the 'corrected' configuration.
