Wrong holey... and probably the wrong way to dress too.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2021 - 06:09 PM)

If your underwear is old and holy, it is considered a relic and should be protected with your life.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 02:04 PM)

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

Target's better-

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

HA! my walmarts can't even sell underwear. There's no clearances going on up here.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

@  tigerhawk : (16 January 2021 - 04:29 PM)

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:55 PM)

So it's been a while since I've had a misassembled Transformers toy.

@  Echowarrior : (11 January 2021 - 10:02 AM)

More Micromasters would be welcome.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 January 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Instructions unclear, have more sports cars.

@  tigerhawk : (11 January 2021 - 01:57 AM)

Or they could make the other Micromasters of the teams they half assed.

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 January 2021 - 11:20 PM)

There should be a box set of eight Stakeouts.

@  Bass X0 : (10 January 2021 - 08:27 PM)

There should be a box-set of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. But I'm not expecting it.

@  Nevermore : (10 January 2021 - 07:51 PM)

I hope there are re-releases this year!

With the different voices, will they be distinguishing Huey, Dewey and Louie? Like, one will be a tech guy, maybe another is sporty? Did they do that with Quack Pack? I kinda prefer it if they were indistinguishable. Weird.

this artwork from a few months ago seems to heavily imply individual personalities for the triplets.

Huey is the smart one, Dewey is the brave one, Louie is lazy? I'm a little disturbed that Webby is upside down. She might be playful... Or crazy.

Huey Ravenclaw, Dewey Gryffindor, Louie Hufflepuff, Webby Slytherin.

 

 

Art on the Disney XD page shows her with a Grappling Hook... so obviously she's Webby Pines :p

I love the designs. I think they've done a great job of simplifying and modernising the classic Disney duck. We'll see how it looks in motion but I'm pretty keen. Interesting that we have a casting announcement for Launchpad and Donald in all the promo art. I wonder if the volume of Donald will be different given how much the Disney landscape has changed, or whether they'll stick to the original model anyway.

Though no one can truly replace the late great Alan Young, David Tennant is a surprisingly awesome choice for a new take on Scrooge McDuck.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I love how good it looks!  I don't love the grown up sounding voices of Huey, Dewey and Louie.  Everything else is...golden.  I hope Donald plays more than an occasional cameo role on the series, because they have his character spot-on.

Theirs and Webby's.

 

But David Tennant's Scrooge voice is so perfectly spot on as a spiritual successor to Alan Young's Scrooge that that alone can forgive all other shortcomings of this show... potentially.

The characterization of kids will make this nearly impossible to watch for me. Also, really not a fan of the UPA look.

Tennant seems pretty Ok as Scrooge. Too bad same can't be said for new Launchpad's voice (though it's nowhere near bad as kids voices)...

Nah. It's just a hype tactic. Pretty much same as announcements of Fant4stic Four 2, Suicide Squad 2 while part 1 of those were flopping. (Not saying new DuckTales is flopping already, just that the goal is to make you think it's so good that you absolutely need to watch it)

I don't find anything intrinsically wrong with any of the voices they're all fine enough from what I hear except that they aren't the voices I grew up with.

-ZacWilliam, it's just the inherent weirdness of all these characters not sounding like they used to. I expect they'll be fine one I get used to them.

Yeah, having a bunch of middle aged men do unmodulated voices for characters who are supposed to be little kids isn't a great choice.  Especially when one of them is Horatio Sanz Bobby Moynihan.

I get the feeling the "kids" meant to be a bit older this time around.  More like young teen to early adult, which is fine.  I never cared much for the the original kids, though, so there's not as much nostalgia in the way.

 

I am totally hyped, though.  Tennant's voice is much better than I expected and I really like the vibe they're going for with Scrooge and Donald being (legendary?) adventurers.

I think you nailed it. Disney XD is aimed at pre-teens and teenagers. The old show skewed a little younger. So it makes sense that some things would be updated a bit, such as the kids having the same generic voice. They want today's pre-teens to be able to latch onto one character they identify with and it's easier if they all have unique characters.

 

But I can understand how on a board that mostly wants Optimus Prime to always sound like he did in 1984 change isn't going to be that popular.
