I ended up checking it out, and it's pretty damn neat.

There was a shooting near a shopping mall in Munich, currently eight or nine people are dead. Three suspects, still at large.

So now it's Germany's turn to be the target of what appears to be aterrorist attack.

@  Nutjob R/T : (22 July 2016 - 02:44 PM)

Which is kinda... I preordered the new VF-2ss, and then before it shipped there was the exclusive version with the SAP pack that was only open for two days of orders. And then I got the naked VF2ss and it's... Not... Good.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 July 2016 - 12:18 AM)

Yeah, Japanese online sellers seem to take it very seriously, in my experience. When you commit to something, it's expected that you follow through on it, and cancelled transactions seem to be frowned upon. However, I've never dealt with more courteous or considerate sellers than those in Japan; some have even enclosed a small gift item in the package on occasion.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:44 PM)

Nothing really happened, I just got an email saying I shouldn't do that.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:43 PM)

But I ended up buying it later since it got delayed.

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 03:43 PM)

and what did they do?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:42 PM)

I've cancelled something with them once.

@  Nutjob R/T : (21 July 2016 - 03:27 PM)

AmiAmi is nice but if you preorder you gotta friggin' MEAN it

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 03:17 PM)

Yep, I ordered a bunch of Gundam kits from them earlier this year. The shipping was high but I had to do EMS due to the weight of the package

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 03:09 PM)

and amiami is a reputable site? this is the first time i'm using them.

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 02:56 PM)

Oh! Nice. I guess I thought SAL was always untracked.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 01:39 PM)

Registered means it has tracking.

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 01:26 PM)

Yeah it's just slower and doesn't have tracking...usually the best economic option

@  Benbot : (21 July 2016 - 01:07 PM)

SAL is just fine

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 01:06 PM)

unless anybody has problems with "SAL Small Packet (Registered)".

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 01:03 PM)

Okay, I got it down to 11,930 (£85) with SAL Small Packet (Registered). Thats better. £101 would be too much for two Deluxes and a Voyager even with better (IMO) color schemes.

@  MEDdMI : (21 July 2016 - 01:02 PM)

That's about 101.55 British pounds

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 12:58 PM)

Is 14,200 Yen worth it for Takara Skull, Hardhead and Galvatron with shipping to the UK from amiami?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2016 - 11:38 AM)

I doubt anyone takes it seriously that Primax 1005.19 Gamma is indeed the original universe. That author comment is bound to be contradicted by some multiverse story down the road, anyway. Even Vector Prime in AVP said that even if it were true, there is no way for him or his colleagues to discern so, which obviates any substantial impact of "Elegant Chaos".

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 10:48 AM)

I remember my silly haunted toy thread, 10 people voted 1 star or so sniff http://www.allspark....d-transformers/ I don't believe in haunted stuff but I still made the thread for the lulz.

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 10:42 AM)

no, he left it ambigious actually.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 10:42 AM)

So someone already contradicted him.

@  Locoman : (21 July 2016 - 10:41 AM)

So really who can say

@  Locoman : (21 July 2016 - 10:41 AM)

But Vector Prime said that it just altered THAT universe's properties, allowing for the development of things like the Functionist world

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 10:19 AM)

I know he didn't create the IDW universe but he's the writer of one of its titles, that's why I said "his universe".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 10:15 AM)

Also it's not exactly "his (Roberts') universe" since Barber exists, even if you ignore all the earlier IDW stuff.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 10:13 AM)

And it's specifically the intent rather than something that's actually in the story.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 10:11 AM)

I didn't listen to the podcast but the transcript has a bunch of laughing and he does specify "until someone can contradict me".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 09:43 AM)

Perceptor said that the briefcase made alternate universes possible or something but it's not like Perceptor actually knows how all this works.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 09:42 AM)

It... didn't?

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 09:37 AM)

So, wait does Elegant Chaos story made the IDW universe the main TF continuity? What with it being the base universe. This sucks, there shouldn't be a main universe wtf, James Roberts is just trying to make his universe the most important one. If there has to be a main universe (which I don't think there should) it has to be the G1 cartoon.

Dr Who's sonic screwdriver 'invented' at Dundee University
QUOTE
Scientists claim to have invented their own version of Doctor Who's famous sonic screwdriver.

The Dundee University researchers have created a machine which uses ultrasound to lift and rotate a rubber disc floating in a cylinder of water.

It is said to be the first time ultrasound waves have been used to turn objects rather than simply push them.

The study could help make surgery using ultrasound techniques more precise, the physicists said.

Anyone listen to the various Audios from Big Finish or BBCAudio?

I finished on the BBC Audio first story with Tom Baker (Doctor 4) {Hornets Nest part 1} and found it somewhat weak...a lot of long passages of being narrated at about what happened in flashback. The big finish dramas are usualy more...dramatic.

We've listened to Hornet's Nest and Demon's Quest, and found both pretty lacking. Most of the other audio stories seem a lot better.

I've heard this coming season is a short season (Short to our American eyes, anyway) in order to stockpile the budget for the 50th Anniversary, so if that's the case it would make sense if they were already deep in the planning stages.

Not to mention it's the 50th Anniversary - I'd expect all the stops to be pulled down and guest stars aplenty to be had.

Same number of episodes as in the past. Will start in the fall and run the Christmas episode, believe it or not, on Christmas Day. Then the rest will be in the spring. 6 in a row than 8.

Rory and Amy will leave just before the Christmas episode (episode 5?>) Then Jenna-Louise Coleman will make her appearance as the new companion in the Christmas episode.

So no shorter season, no stock piling money. The only rumor that has been acknowledged is that there will be no multi part episodes, just stand alone.

Eccleston has been pretty clear about not wanting to return, so I'd guess he's out, besides archive shots. McGann has been adamant about coming back and even had a new outfit designed (with Sonic Screwdriver). It would be awesome to at least 8s final moments before regenerating into 9. Tennant is definitely ok with coming back last I read.

Trial is worth going through to the end, at least once. Trust me. You want to be there as we lead into the final part.

@BigFinish: I am a HUGE fan of Big Finish, but budget forced me to cut them a few years ago, so I am woefully behind except on the BBC4 8th Doctor (Paul McGann being one of my favorite Doctor's after all). I have heard mixed reviews of Tom's return, mainly since his voice has drastically aged, which makes things feel off for a lot of fans. Do yourself a favor and acquire any of the following to see how good Audio Who can be:
5: The Kingmaker, Key2Time series, and any of the Turlough ones, Excelis Dawns, Omega
6: The One Doctor, Arrangements for War, Real Time, The Wormery, Jubilee, Davros, Actually almost any of his.
7: Fires of Vulcan, Bang-Bang-a-Boom, The Reaping,
8: Chimes at Midnight, Seasons of Fear, Neverland, Zagreus (40th anniversary special), The Next Life, and the entire Lucie Miller arc (BBC4 Radio)
Side stories: the original Dalek Empire arc, Kaldor City (Not by BF, but so hugging good), and the UNIT stores were fun.
Unbound (New actors/What if's): Any of this subline is worth hearing with actors like David Warner and Aribella Wier as the Doctor.


@50th Anniversary: While I am sure we are going to go for a HUGE anniversary episode, there are some hard truths to face: Eccleston wants nothing to do with Who anymore, Colin and Tom Baker have both aged badly (While 5, 7 and 8 can still pull it off), and no matter what we could wish for, The Brig and Sarah Jane are gone icon-screamer.gif icon-screamer.gif icon-screamer.gif

Still. Last I heard, the 50th was meant to be an independent special next year, not part of the upcoming series at all, or at very least, part of the NEXT one after this upcoming one.

Indeed. I don't think there's any way in hell Eccleston would return, because he has expressed a lot of somewhat vague disappointment with aspects of the production during his brief tenure.

I still think it would be interesting if they used Benedict Cumberbatch as the 4th Doctor, his take on Sherlock reminds me a lot of Baker's Doctor. Have Tom in some other role if he is up for taking part in another special.
