what manufacturer is that? I'm trying to find a US source

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 November 2019 - 10:22 PM)

I've already found the best toy of 2020: a foot tall, fully articulated (20 points) Alien Queen for a fraction of what Neca or anyone else would charge

@  Telly : (21 November 2019 - 09:46 PM)

no minerva toys until i get my devcon :p

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 November 2019 - 08:28 PM)

Paladin keeps saying this every time they reveal another toy of an early character, including the first Earthrise reveals even though that had Micromasters.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2019 - 03:20 PM)

I'll concede the Titan Masters, but Magnus Prime is an existing mold, Liokaiser is a set of repaints, and Metalhawk is a repaint and prominently featured in IDW.

@  Cyoti : (21 November 2019 - 12:14 PM)

And Ginrai aka "Magnus Prime, Metalhawk, "Liokaiser", etc. The real characters that Warden actually doesn't know about are the late EuroUK characters like the Turbomasters/Predators

@  Sabrblade : (21 November 2019 - 11:06 AM)

Warden and Friends did give us a Lione (Sawback) and a Shuffler

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2019 - 07:26 AM)

Or prominently featured in IDW, or an easy repaint of an existing toy.

@  Paladin : (21 November 2019 - 07:12 AM)

was she in the first 3 seasons of the cartoon? If not then she's on no one's list because they don't think she exists.

@  Cyoti : (20 November 2019 - 11:23 PM)

It's probably stuck on the low priority end of Warden's to-do list.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 November 2019 - 10:45 PM)

Because the only full-body Nightbeat was that Bumblebee with a new head one.

@  Bass X0 : (20 November 2019 - 04:14 PM)

Why has there been no new Minerva toys? I’m surprised at Takara. The Titan Master head doesn’t count.

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 November 2019 - 01:05 PM)

On my shelf I have Ginrai donning the Star Convoy armor.

@  Liege : (19 November 2019 - 07:42 AM)

That he is.

@  Benbot : (18 November 2019 - 04:01 PM)

And a good boy

@  Liege : (18 November 2019 - 09:19 AM)

Hound is at least a very good toy.

@  ThunderWear : (18 November 2019 - 09:11 AM)

Hound is the only other one that even comes close to Chromia in my area, and he ships in two separate waves.

@  Liege : (18 November 2019 - 08:58 AM)

This might be how they finally get rid of all the Chromias. I've not seen a shelfwarmer like that in ages.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2019 - 08:26 PM)

It's a good deal if you want a full set of Refraktor (and if they have them at your location)

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 November 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Here we can buy two and get one free, but at least two of them are gonna be the same toy, because lol distribution.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2019 - 01:01 PM)

In the U.K., it’s more like you but two, you only get one given how expensive they are.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Transformers are Buy 2 Get 1 free at Target this week.

2019 has been one long South Park episode.

@  Sjogre : (16 November 2019 - 10:46 PM)

Okay, that actually sounds pretty fun.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 12:49 PM)

It was set in the forties, featured Nazi's as the villains and had Kiko fight mostly Ice Age animals and a mythical dragon that now ruled the island guarding Kongs treasure.

@  Paladin : (15 November 2019 - 11:37 AM)

and it was ALSO eleven hours long.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 10:55 AM)

In a alternate reality Peter Jackson made Son of Kong.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 November 2019 - 09:30 AM)

To be fair to boba: everyone else to go into the sarlacc was a sacrifice. Stripped almost naked and tossed, and didn't have body armor, a jetpack and a weapon.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2019 - 06:54 AM)

Nah, he just has to keep up his plot insurance payments so he can shoot his way out of the Sarlacc again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 November 2019 - 02:59 AM)

Funny, but everyone knows he bounty hunts for Jabba Hutt to finance his 'Vette.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 November 2019 - 02:54 AM)

Okay.. Not sure why.. but streaming is harder than jsut playing the game.. even though that's pretty much what I was doing.

@  Xellos : (14 November 2019 - 06:47 PM)

What type of vehicle does Boba Fett use for time travel? A Man-DeLorean.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

@  Patch : (13 November 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Just a particularly odious example of the 90s era of depicting transgender women as either the subject of crude humor, or "Jerry Springer" material.

@  Ashley : (13 November 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I think Ace Ventura legit contributed to me spending years in self denial. I will never be ok with Jim Carrey.

@  Benbot : (13 November 2019 - 01:22 PM)

I thought he since changed his tune.

I was just wondering who else adventures in the Kingdom? (There I am also PlutoniumBoss.)

Also, I want to ask for advice in familiar naming. I have a slight inclination towards Transformer names. For example:

My Astral Badger is named Heinlad.
My Blood-Faced Volleyball is named Unicron Jr.
My Mosquito is named Big Mos.
My Barrrnacle is named Dead End.
My Stab Bat is named Ratbat.
My Ghuol Whelp is named Fangry. (Actually, I'm going to name him Repugnus instead.)
My Killer Bee is named FKTM Waspinator.
My Snowy Owl is named Icebird.
And my Teddy Bear is named Barbearian.

My dilemma is this. On my next ascension, I will be making a Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot. But what to name him? I'm kind of leaning toward Bludgeon or Cannonball. (Bludgeon is definitely a Ninja Zombie Robot, and Cannonball is a Pirate Robot with Zombie tattoos.) But those names both seem to fall short somehow. An ideal name would completely fit his Ninja Pirate Zombie Robotness. Any suggestions?

Mecha-Ninja LeChuck?

The Fallen?

Something Seacon-related? Say, Piranacon, or God Neptune?

Sharkticon?

I only had a KoL avatar for months. Haven't played in forever though. My account's probably wiped by now. Last time I played was just as they were starting Acensions. I think only a handful had done it by then.

Dean, did you play before or after ascensions were added? Either way, KoL isn't something to do if you're looking for a Serious Gaming Experience, but there's actually surprising depth once you get over the simplistic interface.

If you played before Ascensions, you might want to give it a try again. Ascension lets you replay after you kill the Naughty Sorceress, with access to more content. There's options to be reborn under different Zodiac Signs that give you different benefits as well as access to different areas.

And the new Astral Badger content is funny as jive. I'm in Hardcore right now so I couldn't send you any Astral Mushrooms to get into the new area, but I'm saving them up. When I get out of hardcore I'll gladly send some to my Allspark peeps.

Also, the Radio KOL shoutcast channel is highly entertaining.

For those of you curious, my other familiars also tend to have entertaining names:

My Leprechaun is named Trip O'Dometer.
My Fuzzy Dice are named Racecar and Yaya
My Balloon Monkey is named Yoko
My Grue is named Makkuro Kurosuke.
My Cocoabo is named Woodstock.
My Pet Rock is named Teddy, and you won't get that one unless you've read Isaac Asimov's joke books.
My Baby Gravy Fairy is named Rockapella. (Two words: "THE LOOT!")
And my elemental Gravy Fairies are named after the five days of the Discordian week. Thus my Spooky Gravy Fairy is named Boomtime, my Frozen Gravy Fairy is Prickle-Prickle, my Sleazy Gravy Fairy is named Sweetmorn, and when I get them my Stinky Gravy Fairy will be Pungenday and my Flaming Gravy Fairy will be Setting Orange.

I never got past level 10 before I got bored out of my mind and stopped.

The X adventures per day thing was what made it so frustrating.

If you mix booze and cook food, you can get quite a lot of turns. With the high end drinks and food, you can more than double your daily allotment of turns.

Drunkenness disappears at rollover every night, and that's it. But once you complete the quest for the Deep Fat Friars, they'll train you to be able to drink more. Youll be able to drink up to 20 Drunkenness instead of 15.

My advice is to check out the KOL Wiki. It's an excellent resource, it'll tell you the ingredients you need to mix more powerful drinks. Mad Train and other dropped booze is easy to get, but if you want to get more bang for your buck then Cocktailcrafting is where it's at.

After a good couple months of playing, I've finally started the Naughty Sorceress quest. Judging from the Wiki, it's... pretty lengthy.

Also, I always named a pet mosquito "Mr. Squito". This is what I do. This is how I roll.

Wow, and i was about to make this thread... curse you PlatinumBoss!!!!

I am RDeLuca
and have ascended once...
the game is damn addicting and takes me aroud 45 mins to an hour to use all my quests a day...

It's fun, funny, and keeps my attention. That's all I really need.
They more recently added a lot of stuff (NS-13), so if you haven't played in the last couple months (it was implemented June 25th, 2007; to be exact...) then there's a crapload of new stuff to do!

GET LOATHING!
AN ADVENTURER IS YOU!


Edit: Hey, maybe when i've started to get good enough to have a real amount of meat I'll start a clan for Allsparkers
