The most immediately annoying aspect of TRU's financial situation is that every single time a grown man experiences a minor inconvenience that he would experience at any retailer in the country, he makes a post online about how obvious it would be to completely pay off their debt by stocking a single toyline slightly differently.

@  Bass X0 : (18 December 2017 - 12:58 PM)

Overhearing a conversation... what do you have to do in life to earn the nickname "Pineapple"?

Next thing you know, you'll wake up with Unicron looming over you, holding a knife.

i remember the missile gears malfuctioned a lot. damn thing once shot me in the middle of the night.

@  Fenix Twilight : (17 December 2017 - 06:54 PM)

Just transformed Unicron probably for the first time since I got him in 03, fun stuff. Still would like a new version but since they just did another release last year I guess we're stuck with that mold.

@  Shrug : (17 December 2017 - 06:16 PM)

Yeah, I think that might work on the red one, if I can find a neon enough yellow

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 06:10 PM)

How about neon yellow/green? Like on Krok?

I'm dealing with a black/grey robot and a red/black robot.

@  Shrug : (17 December 2017 - 05:44 PM)

I'm thinking of making some figures "G2" with minor paint additions: a little panel lining, probably. What colors in small amounts make you think G2?

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 05:41 PM)

Don't worry, it was grammatically correct, it just wasn't "fluent". :)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 03:29 PM)

Scheiße.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 03:22 PM)

Damn. I initially thought of writing "Herzliche Glückwünsche", but I thought that didn't fit because we don't know each other in real life. But I forgot to check for quantity after dropping "Herzliche".

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 December 2017 - 03:14 PM)

It'll be nice when they finally perfect universal translation algorithms

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 02:43 PM)

In German, you only pluralize "Glückwunsch" when it's several people congratulating someone. As in, "I received everyone's congratulations."

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 02:42 PM)

That's actually a hypercorrect literal translation that immediately reveals you as a non-native speaker.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 01:04 PM)

Glückwünsche!

@  ILoveDinobot : (17 December 2017 - 12:34 PM)

And top top it all off, my employer will offer a one-off bonus for moving to permanent late shift, and another annual bonus if I stay on permanent late shift for an entire year.

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 11:10 AM)

That's basically my personal dream shift.

No more getting up early. Also, every work week will be from Monday to Friday, with the weekends off.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 December 2017 - 02:18 AM)

TBH, the use of the word "boudoir" seemed a bit more out of place to me than the humour... has a non-English Terran language ever been established as existing in Star Wars before?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 December 2017 - 01:28 AM)

It's not like it's a big deal anyway. I mean, anything with Aurebesh in it is demonstrably non-canon, because there's no X in Aurebesh so X-Wings wouldn't be called X-Wings, right?

@  unitremover : (16 December 2017 - 11:48 PM)

@  unitremover : (16 December 2017 - 11:47 PM)

@  2017 : (16 December 2017 - 09:35 PM)

I'm fine with the humour because the rest of the universe feels legit, and it's not ten quips a minute like those bloody Marvel movies.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 08:11 PM)

Also, it can't be worse than those awful "sarcastic" jokes in the beginning of AotC that were meant to establish a camaraderie between Anakin and Obi-Wan where it was clear that none existed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 08:09 PM)

Doesn't sound like something I'll be bothered by; movies have to change at least a little bit with the times

@  Waspinator : (16 December 2017 - 07:59 PM)

Yeah, there was some sarcastic humor that wasn't really present in the classic movies

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 December 2017 - 02:00 PM)

I didn't have a problem with it. But it DOES skew a bit more "modern" in ways the humor of prior films didn't, short maybe Rogue One

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 01:20 PM)

I'm staying spoiler-free until I see it tonight, but a number of people seem really angry at the humour in the film

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 01:19 PM)

I've already noticed some backlash against it over on blu-ray.com, but a lot of it seems to stem from anger about the Disney/Fox deal

The thing is, Timm's always pushed his Barbara/Bruce ship. We just kind of ignored it up to this point - BTAS, Batman Beyond...both had the relationship. But then Timm decided to insert it into one of the greatest Batman stories of all time...

The pushing was subtle before. Now, it's less so.

Now you have.  Also, Justice League Dark was a waste of talent much like Matt Ryan's tv tenure.  Shame.

The fact that we have Matt Ryan to be Constantine in Arrowverse when they desire ensures that his Talent wasn't wasted. But it still could be used more.

No it doesn't.  Arrow is a shit show and his appearances on it were a waste as he had nothing worthwhile to do.  Matt Ryan could be a great Constantine, but he's yet to be given any worthwhile material to live up to the potential.

The tone is already completely off from BTAS/TNBA, with its share of "look we can curse and have characters have sex now!" The art style feels like someone took those shows' corpses and dressed it up to get fanboy bux.

"Disabled people don’t have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isn’t a “special need”. It’s a basic human right. It’s a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

That's my one issue so far, but at the same time I think the person they went with does rather well in the roll sounding like Harley but a bit older; which imo seems to fit with the plot in the beginning of her having gone straight... ish and trying to live a normal life as best she can.

They sorta mention that in the video, that its kinda the "step son" of BTAS and that while it might look like BTAS it's still a movie intended for older audiences. 

 

Personally so long as we don't get 30 minutes of characters having sex like in Killign Joke, I'll be fine if its kept to what we see here where its more heavily implied rather the shown.
