At first, I obviously thought I was correct.  Then I thought perhaps the spelling had changed for some reason.  Copyright/trademark law is weird, ya know?  Now I just accept I goofed. XD

@  Otaku : (13 August 2020 - 03:07 PM)

See, that one directly applies to me.  Apparently, I'd been misreading and mispronouncing it wrong for over 30 years... and I still slip and do it the wrong way much of the time.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 August 2020 - 03:52 AM)

Others say Joe sat down at this pond next to these ducks but really there's just no place in this world for an old man and his ducks.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:48 PM)

Even worse when I can produce those verifiable facts at a later point, and then the other person simply claims the argument was the other way round (as in, I was actually arguing their position and vice versa).

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:47 PM)

I can argue with people about my versus their memory of events when verifiable facts are not readily available, though, and I get really annoyed when I'm capable of presenting a precise, step-by-step summary with multiple key points that can be used for future verification, and the other person just goes "nope, wrong" without going into detail.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:45 PM)

I forget things, and I misremember things. But when presented with verifiable facts, my reaction is more like "Huh, could have sworn it was like that", not "this reality is not my own".

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:43 PM)

I have an extremely good memory (which I have proven time and again), and even I can be mistaken.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 August 2020 - 06:40 PM)

Might be worth pointing out that it only became "Mandela Effect" and not just "I remembered this wrong" when a conspiracy theorist insisted it was proof of alternate timelines.

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Incorrectly remembering Nelson Mandela's fate may be uniquely American... but is it really that strange to get South African political history wrong when you're no where near South Africa?

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

I always assumed the Mandela Effect was a "human thing", not an American thing.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2020 - 02:03 PM)

Then there are people who outright manufacture memories for whatever reason.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (10 August 2020 - 01:13 PM)

The human brain is so flaky that it is extremely unlikely that a given person does NOT have any false memories.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Perhaps it's simple word association the movie Sinbad and then our minds apply the same memories to a man named Sinbad.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:04 PM)

The Mandela Effect is the same as people remembering Sinbad in a movie where he played a genie... Of which he never did.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:36 AM)

People that believe Mandela Effect things would rather come up with any number of reasons as to why their version doesn't have any actual evidence(like alternate timelines collapsing into our own) than just admit they remembered something wrong

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Sort of. It's more that when presented with a verifiable fact, they double down because it's what they believe instead of changing their minds

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

"I could have sworn that ______."

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

I'm not arguing with either of those two statements, but they're not really connected. Mandela Effect is, to oversimplify, people being widely mistaken about what they think *is* a verifiable fact. Nothing to do with opinions.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 08:52 AM)

Pretty sure the Mandela Effect in general is an American thing. Opinion > Verifiable Facts is sadly a pretty American thing

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:27 AM)

Ask these people how Apartheid ended according to their recollection, and I'm sure they'll draw a blank.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:25 AM)

You got two black anti-Apartheid activists who were imprisoned by the oppressive regime. One died, the other was Nelson Mandela. It's not a far stretch that Americans who don't know many details about the history of other countries would mix up the two.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:24 AM)

My own theory is that these people are simply mixing up Nelson Mandela and Steve Biko, another South African anti-Apartheid activist, who did indeed die in police custody in 1977. There was an Oscar-nominated movie about his life starring Denzel Washington that came out in 1987, the same time frame these people claim remembering Mandela dying.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:17 AM)

I met a few people from South Africa, and they either never heard of the phenomenon at all, or only know of it from the internet. Apparently, it's completely unknown in South Africa, and it might even be entirely limited to the United States.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:16 AM)

So does anyone remember the "Mandela Effect"? I'm talking specifically about the original case where many people vividly remember Nelson Mandela dying in prison in the 1980s.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 August 2020 - 03:16 AM)

Crisis of Corona.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 06:16 PM)

Which crisis crossover are we on now? I lost track.

@  Rycochet : (09 August 2020 - 05:18 PM)

Much of the past decade has been the part of the comic series where less than stellar authors have driven the series into the ground and the editors are getting ready to either do a big multi issue crossover, leading to a reboot.

@  Bass X0 : (09 August 2020 - 02:28 PM)

At this point I've just decided to consider 2020 "not canon."

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 02:18 PM)

'member Pepperidge Farm?

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 August 2020 - 02:10 PM)

Before the 'member berries there was Pepperidge farm. Pepperidge farm remembers.

Given how long it took me to get five lions...and how much of a pain in the ass it was...I'm not even bothering with this unless I can find a set. I mean, if I failed in getting all of the lions to formVoltron, I would have still had some awesome looking Lion toys. Here, I'd just be stuck with some really oddly shaped space ships.

That is cool though and I hope Netflix gives it a series.

I don't know why Bandai makes these things so hard to get.  I set my alarm for 3AM on preorder day and even then I just barely managed to get one.  Maybe.  We'll find out in November.

That makes no sense, though.  People are willing to pay the price they've already set.  They're only limiting their profit by making the product so scarce.  I don't think their MSRP is unreasonable at all.  It seems more reasonable to have a completely open preorder period with no limit and then manufacture the number of units that were sold.

It's possible that they already had the number to make locked in with the factory, though in that case they could've opened preorders earlier enough so they could adjust.

Ok, I only just watched the final episode of the season.

Blurg. It wasn't very good. They should have ended it with the liberation of Earth in the last season.

Didn't like Honerva being the final bad guy. I thought Lotor was actually back inside the mech. Dumb that the Princess was gone.

Though I do like the weird idea that Chip of Vehicle Voltron is a robot, hehe. And I'm so happy that Shiro didn't marry that videographer from that one shot ep (there were a couple of superfluous eps in the season).

Anyway, the final season was weak. Now I'll read the comments from the previous pages.

You should also watch the two videos I posted on Page 94. They explain a lot of what happened behind-the-scenes that resulted in the lackluster latter half of the series.

I read the back pages (you guys seemed to have liked the ending, which I didn't feel). Saw the two part video and I'm going to watch it, yeah.

Oh, I'm soooooo annoyed that Coran (my favorite character, haha) didn't get an epilogue thing.

And, yeah, it didn't occur to me until I read the pages that with the reality fracture, Voltron could have teamed up with other Voltron.

The entity did sorta go where? It could have been the secret bad thing all along, an evil quintessence thing, just influencing Honerva, but, no.

I did like seeing the other Paladins.

I need to rewatch the deaths of Zarkon and Lotor. Because for both times, I assumed it was all fake outs and they're still alive. I thought Lotor was inside the mech when it came back.

Hunk's cook ending, I rather like. Cuz I'm dieting and want food, haha. But I want more of Pidge, Robo Chip and the rest of Vehicle Voltron.

Btw, in that previous pages of video of Shiro VA singing, he had a Slav scarf. That's pretty cool merch, hehe

So, how many total unique RoBeast types did Voltron fight? I can barely remember.

1 - Pretty sure there was a first monster
2 - Cool multi eyes on wings on Balmera (fought twice?)
3 - That giant head (helped defeated by Blade of Marmora guy, I think)
4 - A plant monster on Oriande
5 - Zarkon mech (wait, was there one?)
6 - Giant arena creature during the comedy Coran as a ringmaster ep
7 - Lotor Sincline mech
8 - RoBeast soldiers (first appearance, then about... Four after that?)
9 - Honerva combination mech

This is from memory... Did I forget someone?

God dammit, really?  I went through all that trouble ordering one from Japan and paid through the nose for shipping and I could have just ordered it at the last minute from Amazon?  Man alive.

 

 

By the way, I got it weeks ago but still haven't opened it because I was waiting for a special occasion.  Well, I'm not waiting till Christmas, so I might as well play with it now.  I'll let you guys know what I think later.
