I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:23 AM)

Well there is an overpriced limited edition, but I don't want to pay that much money for it.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:21 AM)

Well great. The one Usagi Yojimbo volume I don't have and it's out of stock.

@  Rycochet : (17 January 2020 - 06:15 PM)

I both love and hate that the Alien franchise seems to have had more luck finding a niche as a line of children's toys than it has at producing worthwhile films.

@  Donocropolis : (17 January 2020 - 06:35 AM)

I've seen them on the shelves at Walmart. They're pretty great looking retro Aliens toys. https://www.walmart....-Vary/934039489

@  fourteenwings : (17 January 2020 - 01:11 AM)

IIRC somebody on here mentioned an unbranded Alien toy a couple of weeks ago? It seems like it was actually part of a collection for the Alien movie series by Lanard. Mattel's making some stuff too.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 January 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Is it really a worse name than say, HMS Spanker?

'Boaty McBoatface' was a actual thing?! Wow.

Of course I had the idea to download all the pdfs like a week too late. Anyone got an archive?

The Collector Club is dead. Seems like it all came down shortly after New Year

@  ThunderWear : (13 January 2020 - 11:06 PM)

I can't get to the collector club website. anyone else? I was literally going to download all the fiction to finish reading.

Even in fallout, they never carpet bombed with nukes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 January 2020 - 12:43 PM)

I hope the stockpiled nuclear weapons of the US and Russia are accounted for then.

@  Nevermore : (12 January 2020 - 12:22 PM)

Geez. 1760 (!) bombs from World War II that had not detonated and were still armed have been found. That's only the numbers for the federal state of Germany I live in, and only for the first three quarters of 2019. For all of 2018, the total number was 2811 (!!) bombs.

@  CVReynolds : (11 January 2020 - 11:05 PM)

I've been wanting a Tarantulas that turns into a more realistic tarantula for a long time. Maybe Takara will someday do a Masterpiece, which would be neat. But I really want to see a modernized look like in the IDW comics.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 January 2020 - 09:43 PM)

We need more Waspinators.. and rattraps.

@  Ashley : (11 January 2020 - 07:09 PM)

I'm on board with that

@  Dekafox : (11 January 2020 - 06:17 PM)

What I'm hearing is we need Cyberverse Waspinator

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 January 2020 - 01:27 AM)

He's appeared across more branding changes than Waspinator, so maybe it's more the other way around.

@  Ashley : (10 January 2020 - 12:01 AM)

is C3PO the Waspinator of Star Wars? he'll live forever, because it's funny for him to suffer

@  Sabrblade : (09 January 2020 - 11:52 PM)

I mean, it is easier to protect HDDs, and you can retransfer the data over and over forever?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 January 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Not in this comparison. He's making his own files, so they're (presumably) not restricted by DRM, so he can copy them as many times as he wants. It's potentially more reliable in the long term than hoping the specific copies you originally bought never accrue any damage for the rest of your life.

@  Echowarrior : (09 January 2020 - 10:44 AM)

I prefer physical copies too. Easier to protect something physical and tangible.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 09:55 AM)

I prefer having physical copies.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 January 2020 - 08:56 AM)

I have plenty of physical media I turn into digital media for my plex server. Just finished ripping Ultra Seven

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Isn't the general consensus that we're supposed to be over physical media anyways?

@  Paladin : (09 January 2020 - 08:17 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 January 2020 - 07:35 AM)

My current TV works just fine. I don't see a need to upgrade. And by the time I do, the Next Big Thing will probably be out anyway.

@  Benbot : (09 January 2020 - 03:58 AM)

Me neither. I'm no rebel, though. I'm just poor.

@  Ashley : (07 January 2020 - 11:50 PM)

the comic theme is amazing

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Sounds like Victor Caroli but I’m not sure.

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 02:35 PM)

Should I recognise the narrator of the Mutant Hunt trailer?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 January 2020 - 04:30 AM)

I got me Titans Return Blaster, now watch them unveil Earthrise Blaster and Generations Perceptor, a retool of Titans Blaster.

@  ThunderWear : (06 January 2020 - 10:22 PM)

I recently switched to to the comic theme here at the Allspark and I'm so happy I just want to look at it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (06 January 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Can you not take so many lines to say anything?

@  fourteenwings : (06 January 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Iunno, maybe people having unique pronunciations of things re:how they understand language makes the world a more colourful place, rather than one where we correct every seemingly grievous error?

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:12 AM)

Others insist on "Michael Yackson".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:01 AM)

Because the very combination of those sounds is unknown to them, and thus they avoid it as if it were contagious.

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:00 AM)

For example, the English "J" sound consists of sounds that exist in German: Basically, it's just a "d" sound followed by a very soft "sh". Yet there are many Germans who insist on calling the late King of Pop "Michael Checkson".

So last night's episode was pretty neat. Seeing Spock in his right mind was great and seeing Pike and Vina together was great. Not that crazy on where they are going with the regenerated doctor, lol, but maybe it will turn out to be interesting.

I really hope that Pike and Tyler are trying to double-bluff whomever is messing things up, presumably Airiam. Otherwise it just makes everyone look dumb.

 

I agree on the Spock/Michael thing, and it does resonate awkwardly with Kirk in Little Girls using the same term. And I agree about the stakes, we already had a 'fate of the multiverse' last season (even if, by Star Trek parallel reality rules, doesn't make sense; if every choice makes a separate universe, then there will always be at least one universe where the Spore Network destroyed the multiverse...), something lower-key would have been nice. It's part of why I like Kirk's death so much, he doesn't die so that the universe, or the Federation, or even Earth is saved; he does it because some planet nobody has heard of with a smaller population than the US is in danger.

Just read that Pike is a 1-season thing only.  Too bad, because he's quickly become the best part of this show.

That was at least rumored to be the case from the beginning, and he has indicated throughout the season that he intends to go back to the Enterprise once she's up and running again.  We're getting kinda late in the season to have barely seen Number One and not glimpsed the bridge of the Enterprise.  Saving them for a final story arc, perhaps.

 

I wouldn't be surprised to see Pike and the Enterprise show up now and then as recurring characters after the current season.

 

At the end of season 1, Discovery was headed to Vulcan to pick up the new captain when the Enterprise swooped in and Pike assumed command.I'm still not sure if Pike was the captain they were supposed to meet or if there's another captain sitting around on Vulcan wondering what's taking so long.

 

I wouldn't mind seeing Saru take command, although it feels like he needs some more time to adjust to his new biological state (Saruberty).  Seeing him deal with it as captain could be interesting.

 

I expect Burnham to get there eventually, but that seems like something that won't happen until the final season.  Maybe the season finale.  But they could always take a swerve.

All I could think about Nhan is that's a fairly risky decision to have one of her species as your security chief when ripping off just one side of her apparatus renders her virtually useless (at least until the Machina needs her back). Any physical encounter would end like the underwater SCUBA fight from Thunderball.

Well, I started the episode off thinking, "Oh shit, these lame showrunners will be eviscerated forevermore by everyone including me for doing the laziest simplest solution ever for this mystery storyline."

 

Color me now impressed.

 

And I love Ethan Peck delivering savage Spock lines.

 

Perhaps you simply have a penchant for the dramatic.

The plan to trap the Red Angel was the epitome of stupidity. If the Red Angel is Michael from the future, wouldn't she know what was happening (did happen) and figure out a way to save herself without falling into the trap?


Well, Art is Art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now you tell me what you know.

Maybe not because theyre changing her history due to her future actions? I think Spock realized the paradox, and thats why he made sure that she actually died. If they had saved her, the Red Angel wouldnt have needed to appear. Temporal mechanics give me a headache.

On the subject of time travel. I know Star Trek relies too heavily on technobabble sometimes, but time crystal goes too far in the other direction. I would like to hear some vaguely scientificy explanation of what a time crystal is.

This show can do some really great character stuff when it slows down enough to do so.  There were some wonderful moments this week.

I'm sure I had more thoughts as I was watching it, but I'm going blank right now.  Anyway, it was a good episode that moved at a moderate pace and answered a lot of questions.
