That he is.

@  Benbot : (18 November 2019 - 04:01 PM)

And a good boy

@  Liege : (18 November 2019 - 09:19 AM)

Hound is at least a very good toy.

@  ThunderWear : (18 November 2019 - 09:11 AM)

Hound is the only other one that even comes close to Chromia in my area, and he ships in two separate waves.

@  Liege : (18 November 2019 - 08:58 AM)

This might be how they finally get rid of all the Chromias. I've not seen a shelfwarmer like that in ages.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2019 - 08:26 PM)

It's a good deal if you want a full set of Refraktor (and if they have them at your location)

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 November 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Here we can buy two and get one free, but at least two of them are gonna be the same toy, because lol distribution.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2019 - 01:01 PM)

In the U.K., it’s more like you but two, you only get one given how expensive they are.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Transformers are Buy 2 Get 1 free at Target this week.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2019 - 04:29 AM)

2019 has been one long South Park episode.

@  Sjogre : (16 November 2019 - 10:46 PM)

Okay, that actually sounds pretty fun.

@  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.

@  Benbot : (13 November 2019 - 01:22 PM)

I thought he since changed his tune.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 November 2019 - 12:51 PM)

Jim Carry Paladin?

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 November 2019 - 12:22 PM)

Don't doubt what he can do. Sonic the Hedgehog!

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 11:51 AM)

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

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.

Wow, reading that tweet makes me wonder what is wrong with Ken Penders.  Good thing Archie never allowed it to happen, especially in a family-friendly comic based on a video game series.
