@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 12:49 PM)

It was set in the forties, featured Nazi's as the villains and had Kiko fight mostly Ice Age animals and a mythical dragon that now ruled the island guarding Kongs treasure.

@  Paladin : (15 November 2019 - 11:37 AM)

and it was ALSO eleven hours long.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 10:55 AM)

In a alternate reality Peter Jackson made Son of Kong.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 November 2019 - 09:30 AM)

To be fair to boba: everyone else to go into the sarlacc was a sacrifice. Stripped almost naked and tossed, and didn't have body armor, a jetpack and a weapon.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2019 - 06:54 AM)

Nah, he just has to keep up his plot insurance payments so he can shoot his way out of the Sarlacc again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 November 2019 - 02:59 AM)

Funny, but everyone knows he bounty hunts for Jabba Hutt to finance his 'Vette.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 November 2019 - 02:54 AM)

Okay.. Not sure why.. but streaming is harder than jsut playing the game.. even though that's pretty much what I was doing.

@  Xellos : (14 November 2019 - 06:47 PM)

What type of vehicle does Boba Fett use for time travel? A Man-DeLorean.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

@  Patch : (13 November 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Just a particularly odious example of the 90s era of depicting transgender women as either the subject of crude humor, or "Jerry Springer" material.

@  Ashley : (13 November 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I think Ace Ventura legit contributed to me spending years in self denial. I will never be ok with Jim Carrey.

not giving a dime to a transphobic antivaxxer.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 11:25 AM)

It'll be a terrible movie if jim carrey phones it in. Otherwise it should be decent.

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 10:45 AM)

sonics' still gonna be a terrible movie but at least they whined loud enough to make him look passable for a 2-minute trailer. "yay."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:37 AM)

But of course to annoying people there's no such thing as different decisions made for different reasons, there is only "I like it so it's right" and "I don't like it so it's wrong."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Even if we pretend it's objective truth that they were both bad, then they were bad in very different ways.

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Sonic's previous movie design looked genuinely bad. The Transformers '07 designs just looked insufficiently like what certain loud and obnoxious parts of the fandom think Transformers are required to always look like.

@  Otaku : (13 November 2019 - 08:50 AM)

Um... Purple Monkey Dishwasher?

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 November 2019 - 08:25 AM)

Do we really need to have Every Movie Transformer Thread Ever in the Squawkbox?

@  Bass X0 : (13 November 2019 - 08:13 AM)

Sure it made money but that doesn’t mean it has appealing character designs. Lot of god awful fugly faces in the Transformers movies.

@  Otaku : (12 November 2019 - 08:25 PM)

@Liege My issue with Transformers (2007) were elements I thought were unnecessary.  I know it was supposed to just be a joke, but I didn't ever need to hear about "Sam's Happy Time". >.> Which, being in awe of the first "live action" TF-film, didn't even register until I'd already purchased and watched it on DVD a few times (after seeing it in theaters 3 times).

@  Liege : (12 November 2019 - 08:22 PM)

For all the Bayisms in the 07 movie, it was tempered by Spielberg as producer. Designs aside it was an enjoyable popcorn blockbuster about a boy and his first car who happens to be an alien from another planet. They sequels are just Bay going unchecked after he proved how much bank he could bring in.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 November 2019 - 07:12 PM)

I didn't find the designs in the '07 movie to be that bad, personally. What got really offputting was how Cybertronians in general become such huge a-holes in the later films; the designs were very much secondary to their horrible personalities

@  Sabrblade : (12 November 2019 - 06:59 PM)

And yet, Transformers still broke the bank at the box office, opened up the brand to a whole new generation of fans, shot the brand up to mainstream appeal, and enabled all kinds of new collector-oriented lines and other avenues to come about. Not saying Sonic's movie will do the same for his series, but the 2007 TF movie certainly did more good than harm.

@  Bass X0 : (12 November 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Paramount changed Sonic due to fan backlash but refused to redo Transformers 2007 with new cgi appearances based on their classic forms everyone’s knows and loves, and can relate to. Trailer 1 Sonic is as appealing a design as 2007 Bumblebee...

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 02:14 PM)

I don't. They're a pain in the ass to repair.

@  Benbot : (12 November 2019 - 12:48 PM)

I wish car companies would bring back flip up headlights

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 09:07 AM)

Wear a hazmat suit. It's Walmart, they're used to weird.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 November 2019 - 07:54 AM)

2 inches of snow on the side of the house, 2 feet of snow on the deck. I hate this winter already.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 November 2019 - 11:33 PM)

But that requires actually going IN walmart. ;P

@  Liege : (11 November 2019 - 11:22 PM)

Pro tip for anyone hunting the for the Walmart 35th exclusives: try the seasonal aisles rather than the toy section. I found the display with all the exclusives and a bunch of the reflector wave practically untouched amongst those novelty arcade machines and a bunch of frozen merch.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 November 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Although that does spark an idea for me. In a new continuity, Censere the Necrobot could be the herald Cityspeaker for Quintessa the Necrotitan just to play on their monikers utilizing Greek for dead, nekrós.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 November 2019 - 09:26 PM)

I hate to burst your bubble, Maximus Ambus, but 90% of things said in IDW turned out to be amnesiac half-rememberings courtesy of Adaptus or outright lies courtesy of Shockwave.

@  Jenny : (11 November 2019 - 08:54 AM)

The toy's designed to look like Wipe-Out, anyway.

Oh...great.

Aaron means we can expect the comics to be drowning in crap overused Sonic memes.

 

I doubt that. What works for social media isn't necessarily going to work for a comic, and I'm pretty sure Aaron and IDW would both realize that.

Shipping the first four issues weekly is a bold choice. I hope it doesn't price their younger audience out of the market. Or indeed many of the older ones. 

 

I'm keen to see how the book turns out. It's incredibly unfortunate that Archie's entire run is in the trash now, but a clean slate could potentially lead to some great stuff. Having Ian Flynn is basically great, but also... maybe it would have been smart to go with a completely new voice for the property? Dunno. I'm conflicted. 

 

Ultimately though, even as a very casual fan I'm just glad Sonic will be back on shelves.

I just heard the news that Sonic was bought up by IDW. I'm a huge Sonic fan (just not active in the news department apparently). I wanted to finish up the Archie comics before the new series started in April, I was at issue 285 but it seems Comixology no longer sells Archie Sonic comics. Anyone where where I can get the old Archie comics at?

Well the first four issues solicits are up and well they pretty much confirm that SAT AM;s influence is gone completely as well as adding new resistance fighters.

 

*Sighs*

*Pours out a cold one for his fallen childhood friends...failing a super-secret last-page reveal or something*

 

But, I'll admit, I was wrong about this JUST being a Megadrive/Mania series with no original characters.  The new comic might have it's own feel after all.  Tangle looks fine so far.  Kind of curious what her deal is.  And Blaze is kind of a surprise.  She isn't usually included in the "main" cast.

 

But...

 

Sonic’s new adventure continues, and when he comes across another town in need of saving, his old pal Amy arrives just in time to join the fight! The banter is fun, and the stakes are high, but things get really serious when Amy presents Sonic with a big request: rejoin the Resistance!

 

They're using that word...I don't like that they're using that word from Sonic Forces.  They couldn't possibly think a Sonic Forces "adaptation" is a good idea, right?  We couldn't possibly be in for another multi-year "arc" like Archie's Sonic Unleashed one, right?  I'm just overreacting, right?  I mean, the only other thing that even HINTS at that are the Egg Pawns, and that's not much, but...no no no no no

 

Shipping the first four issues weekly is a bold choice. I hope it doesn't price their younger audience out of the market. Or indeed many of the older ones. 

....

Having Ian Flynn is basically great, but also... maybe it would have been smart to go with a completely new voice for the property? Dunno. I'm conflicted. 

Yeah...I'll admit, I see Ian as more of a Geoff Johns-type of a writer.  Give him a continuity to play in and he can work wonders.  His own creations...leave something to be desired.

 

This'll be decent.  I don't know if I've ever read a BAD Ian Flynn comic.  But...it'll probably be closer to the quality of the Shattered World arc rather than his pre-Super Genesis Wave stuff.  I mean, I don't think anyone will miss Princess Undina or Moss too much.  Clove and Cassia are an unfortunate loss, though.  And Dulcy and the Shijin Warriors and Nephthys and the Desert Raiders had some real possibilities, if the comic had continued.  But, Eclipse was a little OVERplayed...Ian can be kind of hit and miss with new characters, is my point.

 

And, let's face it, he's over 200 issues into his run, if we count Universe.  How much more can he have left in him?  I mean, from the looks of the penciled pages of the cancelled Archie comics, we were still in for some cool stuff.  Including a reference to one of my favorite Sonic covers of all time.  But...I've personally found that the BEST comic runs only last for about 60 issues or so.  It gives the writer enough room to make a well made, fleshed out story...without overstaying their welcome.  You either remain a Neil Gaiman or become a Chris Claremont, is what I'm saying. 

 

And Ian can REALLY go too far with the decompression sometimes.  The Shattered World arc taking THREE YEARS to finish...the Megaman comic lasting until issue 50 and not even getting to Megaman 4...It just gets to be too much.  Ian has definitely had more than his fair share of time with the character.  New blood wouldn't be a bad thing.

 
Thing is...WHO would replace him?  I mean, we've had a few fill-in writers here and there during Ian's run, but nobody really stands out.  Yardley's fine, but he's not really all that different or more interesting than Ian.  And outside of MAYBE Scottie Young (of Marvel's Oz books and I Hate Fairyland), I can't think of another writer with enough all-ages experience to really give us something decent.  (Maybe the Atomic Robo guy, Brian Clevinger?) He's really the only writer that I can think of that CARES enough about Sonic to not completely mess it up.

 

BUT, I think that, after the first issue, this book won't do AS well as the Archie comic, either.  Blame the more-than-a-year wait between issues, the increased price, and the lack of fan favorite characters.  I doubt it'll get cancelled, but I don't think it'll last almost 400 issues altogether, either.  And part of me kind of WANTS him to move on, if only so we FINALLY get Lost Hedgehog Tales (Kinda bitter about that, Ian.  Even if that Fulop lawsuit doesn't seem to be as dead as I thought a few months ago. I REALLY doubt IDW is going to put out a ReGeneration One/Hama GI Joe run here for you.  You promised this back in 2013, IAN!), but...that's just me being selfish.

 

...I guess I'm conflicted too, to put it succinctly (too little, too late, I know :p . ) 

 

And... There is lewd pictures of Tangle already. Good job, Sonic fandom, Good job.

*Nods head* 

 

The Sonic fandom is the best at what they do...And what they do is...actually not all that different than any other big fandom, I guess.  *shrugs*

I think I made a joke earlier in the thread about StH by John Barber and Sonic Universe by James Roberts... but it makes so much sense I'd quite like to actually see it happen.

Is Sally Acorn going to be in this new comic, right? Without her any Sonic comic is just trash.

If I had a bit for every time you made me feel worthless, I'd be worth something by now.
