@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:59 PM)

I've barely used them over the years, so I'm sure they won't miss me, but I'm done too. Thankfully Pulse put up the Seacons today.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:58 PM)

i didnt complete it, which is why this is confusing and pi$$ing me off. theres no record of it in my order history. i emailed them about it, so we will see what happens. either way, i think im done using them after this

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

Either we're both unlucky or they're trying to force payment now for these takaratomy mall exclusives.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I asked them to kindly undo that and I got a sternly worded email about how I should use their website right.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

Yeah, if you completed the order, they charged you the money now. Mine said stack before I finished checking out. I only noticed I was charged because of Paypal.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:53 PM)

i wasnt even wanting to pay now. i was going to add them to my stack but i didnt get the chance after i was done setting up paypal

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:53 PM)

If you haven't officially placed the order, I don't think so? Although, I had to request a cancellation with them last week because their system changed details about my order after I placed it, so I don't exactly trust them.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:51 PM)

so im not actually being charged then?

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:48 PM)

So, if you were one click away from purchasing, then they probably did the pre-authorization already. The next click will charge you the money now.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:47 PM)

TFsource charges upfront for regular pre-orders.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i was considering buying the upcoming seacons from tfsource. i had them in my cart and was on the checkout page. i set up a credit card through paypal, and before i even hit the "place order" button, i got a text saying that a charge or hold was placed on my card! is this normal? is it just checking to see if i have the money? why did it do it before i even placed the order??

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 01:05 PM)

So whenever he addresses his troops, he keeps cracking jokes. Sometimes these jokes are about the blunders he himself had made in his speech the previous day.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 01:01 PM)

At the moment, I'm blessed with a pretty nice superior. He's got a military background, but he takes an oddly entertaining approach to it. Imagine a stand-up comedian who accidentally enlisted as a drill sergeant.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:54 PM)

Another type of everyday absurdity: Imagine you're leaving your workplace for your lunchbreak. Upon your return, you discover that your workplace has been cordened and/or gated off during your break, with "construction site" warning signs everywhere. You go to your superior and tell him: "I can no longer access my workplace! Why is there suddenly a construction site?" Your superior takes a surpised look and says: "I don't know, first time I see this." You figure: "Must be a Tuesday, then."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:51 PM)

It's kind of surreal, really.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:50 PM)

They agree that things are less than ideal, but they acknowledge that their scope of making decisions is limited. Oddly, I keep getting that regardless of how high up the chain of command I bother people.

What's it like to have management that's willing to listen to things they don't want to hear? I've never seen that.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:41 AM)

I manage to argue within the company's own internal logic and point out the flaws, shortcomings and discrepancies between "official company policy" and "everyday company reality".

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:40 AM)

Many of my coworkers are scared to even talk to managers. I often discuss company matters with them I disagree with, and it isn't a rare occurrence that they say "yeah, you're right..."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:38 AM)

I know how to watch my tone, and I prefer to keep things straightforward and factual, never to attack the person, always the problem itself.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:37 AM)

The good thing for me is ever since a minor hiccup many years ago when I was still non-permanent, I've always managed to along just fine with my various superiors (I've been through over a dozen already). And that's despite my outspokenness, my blunt honesty and my oftentimes harsh criticism.

@  Echowarrior : (18 October 2019 - 09:19 AM)

Amazon in the US has pretty good benefits, though, and even the temp workers had forty hours a week to start with. Even with minimum wage, that's pretty good pay.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Oh, the turnover rates are high here as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Amazon.com and .ca, on the other hand, can be pretty terrible. I know from your squawkbox posts that you guys have your issues with Amazon over there, although you're lucky to have stronger government regulations and a union there. I gather the warehouse workers in the USA and Canada have it pretty crappy, with very high turnover, close to minimum wage pay, and no unions

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:38 PM)

Amazon.de doesn't really have the same issue. I've ordered from them (and UK, FR, IT and JP) several times, and their packaging is much better

@  Nevermore : (17 October 2019 - 05:22 PM)

I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

@  Telly : (16 October 2019 - 10:48 PM)

my walmart is acting true to form. as soon as mirage arrives from amazon, my walmart gets his entire wave in after months of having wave 1 clogging the pegs....

@  Nevermore : (16 October 2019 - 05:18 PM)

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

Cream and Omega were off limits for tail end Archie?!

Not tail end (they're all over the post-Genesis Wave era), but they were off limits for a while after first being introduced in the games. Eggman Nega from Sonic Rush was similarly forbidden and that never did get lifted.

Is missing Cream all that bad?

I liked her in Sonic Advance 2 but in everything else she's boring. Plus the fanbase seemed REALLY obsessed with drawing porn of her and Vanilla.

Keep in mind that the games still had a pretty small recurring cast back then, and the recurring female cast was even smaller. (Come to think of it, that also explains the porn thing.) And she turned up all over the place outside of the comics--I think Sonic X brought her into the main cast earlier than Amy, didn't it? So she was conspicuous in her absence.

Whisper looks kind of cool but might also become very annoying very quickly? Not a bad issue on the whole though. I like Silver, so that helps. Are these characters really allowed to say "crap"?!

Just picked up the first TPB. This comic is frigging amazing.

 

Also, Tangle needs to be in the actual games.

Sonic Shines the Spotlight on His Many Friends
in Sonic The Hedgehog Annual 2019


IDW Welcomes Yuji Uekawa, Sonic Team’s Revolutionary Designer, as Cover Artist


San Diego, CA (December 20, 2018) —IDW Publishing and SEGA of America, Inc. are proud to announce Sonic The Hedgehog Annual 2019, an oversized comic book extravaganza that showcases Sonic’s spectacular supporting cast!
 
Arriving in March 2019, the 48-page annual features the odd couple of Tangle the Lemur and Whisper the Wolf in the lead story, teaming up to save a friend in need. Additional stories see Sonic and Tails taking the Tornado out for a spin, Silver and Blaze planting a garden, the Sonic Fan Club holding their first official meeting and Rouge the Bat hunting for treasure!
 
To commemorate their first year of Sonicpublications, IDW welcomes three comic book creators to work on Sonic for the very first time: James Kochalka (of Johnny Boo fame), Cavan Scott (Star Wars Adventures), and Jack Lawrence (Transformers: Lost Light). Returning Sonic talents Ian FlynnEvan StanleyCaleb GoellnerJonathan GrayJennifer Hernandez, and Diana Skelly, plus newcomer Gigi Dutrieux, round out the creative team.
 
James Kochalka said, “Between playing the games and reading the comics, my mind has been living in the world of Sonic The Hedgehogfor several decades, so it’s wonderful to finally be able to actually contribute to that world.”
 
Ian Flynn said, “It’s been thrilling to be part of IDW’s run-away hit Sonic The Hedgehog, and I’m super-excited to spend more time with the brand-new fan favorites Tangle and Whisper!”
 
Sonic The Hedgehog Annual 2019 will be available with three variant cover artists: Jennifer Hernandez, Nathalie Fourdraine, and – as a special treat for fans of the Sonic games – Yuji Uekawa of Sonic Team, celebrated as the visionary behind the look of “modern” Sonic The Hedgehog!
 
“I am really happy to draw IDW’s original characters altogether with Sonic and his friends, as I had never imagined that I would draw these characters as official artwork,” said Uekawa. “As with many IDW Sonicseries fans, I personally love Tangle and Whisper, and I am very much looking forward to seeing their further adventures with Sonic, as well as seeing original characters in future issues!”

Read up to issue #13.

Neo Metal Sonic was done pretty fast. His dragon form was from Sonic Heroes?

Whisper, eh. Is the Whispon / Weapon something from the games or just for the comic?

Dr. Starline is Ian Flynn's new ... darn it, what's the name of the cool looking black and white Echidna scientist from the last continuity? Anyway, I like Starline and I hope Eggman doesn't turn him into a robot.

Yeah Metal's dragon form came from Sonic Heroes. The Wispon is an elaboration on the create-a-characters' weapon from Sonic Forces.

I absolutely love the the panel with Eggman fixing Metal and commenting that "Sonic wouldn't know true art if it punched him in the face...you did punch him in the face right? Attaboy!"

I didn't think the emotion that would trigger him would be Metal. So, he has a personal attachment to him. Paternal?!

Dr. Starline is... A duck or platypus? The supplement didn't say.

Not wild about Whisper but Tangle is fine.
