It's too bad it's like this because some of what they're doing with tiny cars is pretty cool, but I'm not willing to sign up for that f-ing hassle.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:13 PM)

At this point I'm trying to decide how much of a markup I'm willing to pay some scalper scum or if I should just say to hell with it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 September 2019 - 02:11 PM)

That is pretty much the constant story with Hot Wheels. Anything you might actually want has most likely been picked clean and marked up.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:02 PM)

I've been watching some Youtube Hot Wheels videos out of boredom and discovered there exists a new car that just came out maybe a month ago that looks just like one I had when I was little, and I've been looking around hoping to get it. Slim picking everywhere, but online there are a slew of sellers asking for 3 and 4x the retail price, plus a hefty shipping markup.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 01:59 PM)

Oh, that explains the problem I've encountered with finding one little car

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 September 2019 - 01:31 PM)

Oh boy. I work at Target, and literally every single morning, there are two or three guys outside who make a beeline straight to the Hot Wheels.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 September 2019 - 09:55 PM)

I've never read the source material and don't know much about it, but I enjoyed the first film quite a bit, and found the second alright

@  Sabrblade : (17 September 2019 - 09:49 PM)

The first movie was definitely not for me. I flat out hated it. Didn't even bother with the sequel.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2019 - 05:02 PM)

I liked the first movie a lot and enjoyed the original volume of the book, and the way they were developed in parallel was really interesting. It all got super extra unpleasant as soon as they went back though. I don't remember really whether the initial sequels are "good" or not, but either way both the second movie and the second run of the book quickly demonstrated that the property sure wasn't for me.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i have a real hard time offering praise of anything connected to an utter shitstain like Mark Millar.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2019 - 01:23 PM)

Kick Ass 2 was okay for what it was, a sequel to a film that was okay, just okay. It had a good performance from Nic Cage while the sequel had Jim Carrey who decided he didn't want to promote it after one of america's regularly scheduled massacres.

@  Benbot : (17 September 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Was Kick Ass 2 really that bad? I never got around to seeing it, but after watching the first movie again the other day, I'm thinking about it.

If you owe, you're expected to actually pay it at the time you file, before they even process your return

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 September 2019 - 11:10 PM)

If you file electronically, I find you usually get your refund within a couple weeks

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Well, lucky it took less than two months for me. For a little over 200 Euros.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Pretty much, yeah. Canada revenue will be all up your ass if you earn less than 200K and owe tax, but your refund is basically "duke nukem forever".

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Whereas if you overpaid and they have to refund you, they will take their sweet time to let you know.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Like, here in Germany, if the tax authority responds to your tax report quickly, you can rest assured they want more money.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Do tax authorities in other countries base their time to respond to filed tax reports on whether they owe or are owed as well?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 11:13 AM)

Check what the requirements are for your cad program, and try to beat them by about 20%, and understand that software requirements have been stable for a few years: not really keeping up with the advancements in hardware. Unless you're doing something SPECIFIC which requires ludicrous amounts of power, just give your self a cushion on hardware and don't bother going whole hog.

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 10:16 AM)

What I'm currently using is an i5 2018 Surface Laptop. My current desktop is all but dead. I think in the end affordability will win out over specs. I need to use CAD programs, but I'm a student, not a professional.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 10:06 AM)

Okay. Whats the specs on the I7 and what are you currently using?

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 09:23 AM)

Alright. The damages now seem to include my primary SSD. Thankfully, the gaming drive (I have now lost all my games and mods entirely.) Let me wipe it and install there. Once the crucial utility is installed again, will verify the drive.

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.

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.
