Neither of those are really surprising.

@  Waspinator : (25 September 2018 - 10:47 PM)

If you think that's weird, Amazon Japan sponsors a show about cannibal mutants (Kamen Rider Amazons) called Amazonz.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 September 2018 - 10:10 PM)

I like how in the Percy Jackson universe, Amazon is literally run by the Amazons.

@  RichardT1977 : (25 September 2018 - 07:57 PM)

Government is simply the Laws and Customs of the War of All against All.

@  Betty Nor : (25 September 2018 - 06:46 PM)

Slavery, maybe. At least until, by law, Corporations are considered Borg, at which point, the term will be reclassified as assimilation.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 September 2018 - 06:19 PM)

And, under american law; corporations are people. So isn't that technically canabalism?

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2018 - 06:16 PM)

Put two corporations in a room and in less than an hour one of them will be trying to buy out the other.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 September 2018 - 03:21 PM)

"Capitalism is human nature! Don't interfere with what works, you bloody socialist!"

@  wonko the sane? : (25 September 2018 - 06:34 AM)

That's kind of the problem isn't it, amazon doesn't really HAVE any competitors. Sure, there are other companies offering similar services but nothing even close to scope or scale. How do you compare against something when you yourself are the only one doing it?

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2018 - 02:41 AM)

Oh wait, I forgot, Amazon is a major player, so they should be setting high standards competitors should be looking up to, not comparing themselves to smaller competitors for reference.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2018 - 02:39 AM)

Also, if you add the maximum possible amount of bonuses, and employee stock at its peak, we earn more we would earn under a collective bargaining agreement with the union including vacation and Christmas bonuses (but not including additional vacation days, late shift bonuses, weekend bonuses and whatnot)!

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2018 - 02:37 AM)

But... But... we earn more than people in random other jobs that have nothing to do with us at all which Amazon randomly picked so they'd be paying better by comparison!

@  Paladin : (24 September 2018 - 06:51 PM)

Bezos' Dust is also what the Amazon staff makes, in proportion...

@  Patch : (24 September 2018 - 06:07 PM)

Don't you mean Bezos Dust?

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2018 - 03:47 PM)

What, you never wanted some Amazon-exclusive PCP?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 September 2018 - 03:33 PM)

It's pretty hilarious to see people freely throwing around "PCP" in reference to new Punch-Counterpunch figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 September 2018 - 01:53 PM)

So apparently some models of air-conditioner are on trays inside the case, so they can be removed for easy access to the internals. I did not know that two hours ago: and have since cleaned three. It's been a learning kind of day.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 September 2018 - 09:15 AM)

There's probably been a Pokedex-themed 3DS cover.

@  Noideaforaname : (21 September 2018 - 04:34 PM)

I still got that Pikachu Edition Gameboy Color from back in the day. Yellow and Blue and with Pikachu, Jigglypuff and Togepi on the screen.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 September 2018 - 04:30 PM)

Quote of the day: I either need bourbon or aspirin, and I'm pretty sure the liquor cabinet is closer than the medicine chest.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 September 2018 - 02:38 PM)

I don't recall any Pokedex themed DS or Game Boy, but plenty of Pokemon-themed ones. My favourite, and the one I've got myself, was the Pokemon Red/Blue themed 3DS with the swappable faceplates that came out around the time the original games were made available via digital download

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 September 2018 - 02:30 PM)

I'm fairly certain Nintendo has done Pokéball red and white, but I don't know about specific Pokédex colors.

@  Paladin : (21 September 2018 - 11:10 AM)

random thought: has Nintendo ever made a 3DS that looks like a Pokedex? because that seems like a GOLDMINE waiting to happen...

@  Nevermore : (21 September 2018 - 03:23 AM)

Wiigii! Titans Return Grotusque for only 60 Euros (actually 70 but I somehow had an eBay gift card for reasons that escape me) with free shipping from within my own country!

@  Whirl Maximus : (21 September 2018 - 03:02 AM)

That was the plan for Predators too with the Super Predators.

@  Waspinator : (21 September 2018 - 01:46 AM)

So, apparently in the new Predator movie, the Predators don't hunt us for honor or the challenge or anything like that, but because they're stealing human DNA to modify themselves. Congrats Hollywood, on making a monster far less cool and scary.

@  Pennpenn : (20 September 2018 - 08:46 AM)

I only started playing it recently so I don't know what it was like before. Actually surprised they haven't finished the story yet. Then again, unless they introduce another world it's pretty much just Maleficent and whatever the Foretellers are playing at left.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 September 2018 - 08:30 AM)

Geeze.. I reloaded up Kingdom Hearts X for the first time in a long time. That game has massivily inflated from when I played it when it first launced in the US.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 09:07 AM)

It's an annoying thing to have happen in any game. I'm hoping they actually finish releasing all the story mode parts before 3 comes out.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 06:24 AM)

Ahh. Hadn't played that in a long time.. Since before the PVP I think.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 04:33 AM)

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Specifically the PVP fights.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 04:31 AM)

What game PennPenn

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 03:13 AM)

Man, I love it when you've got limited attempts at something in a game, said game crashes at the end of the thing, so you lose the attempt but don't get any credit.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 08:44 PM)

I know. I'm back to the classic purple for the first time since the comic theme was introduced.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 08:32 PM)

Alright thanks, gonna be weird without the speech bubble boxes but I'll manage.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 07:59 PM)

Nope, ongoing problem for a bunch of us. The mods know, so... just hunker down and wait. In the mean time: changing themes will sort it out for a bit. Only the comic theme is affected.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 05:36 PM)

Is something going on? I'm missing the buttons to go to the newest post and there's no banner for the forum list, it just says "logo" in the corner.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 September 2018 - 06:03 AM)

Leader-1!

@  Whirl Maximus : (18 September 2018 - 02:25 AM)

"huh?" 'chuckle' in every reaction shot. That's all I remember of Armada.

@  Paladin : (16 September 2018 - 07:36 PM)

if youre looking for sympathy its in the dictionary between shit & syphilis.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 September 2018 - 03:10 PM)

Uuuhhhhhh.......

@  Rycochet : (15 September 2018 - 11:56 AM)

Due to it's concentrated lousiness, even small doses of Energon will age you, yes.

@  Lazy Garou : (15 September 2018 - 10:32 AM)

unicron trilogy video was great, but made me feel a hundred years old.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 September 2018 - 07:32 AM)

Awesome. Good job man.

@  Lazy Garou : (11 September 2018 - 09:30 PM)

cleaning up, mostly.but the little plastic piece where the power cable hooked up was broken. That I managed to put back together.

@  Patch : (11 September 2018 - 04:48 PM)

So he also has White Castle-like qualities?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 September 2018 - 02:23 PM)

Just keep him away from the plumbing, he's really hard on the pipes.

@  RichardT1977 : (11 September 2018 - 01:22 PM)

Overlord has some castle-like qualities to him

@  wonko the sane? : (11 September 2018 - 12:15 PM)

Fix it, like, found a working power adaptor, or fix it like: there was saudering involved.

@  Lazy Garou : (11 September 2018 - 11:58 AM)

that feeling when you fix something and works like a dream. we now have a working snes in my house and I have tested 10 games on it and they all work.

Well, I waited too long and missed out on Brimstone. But, I have the Bard of Darkmount, Transmutate and Galva Convoy on the way. I've never tried building one so this should be fun.

I'm sure somebody will swoop in to buy all of the toys at the end of the year to flip on eBay or wherever, but will the paper materials nobody wants end up in a dumpster behind FP when New Year's comes? The market for empty SG Drift boxes doesn't seem very large.

I hope you have a spare Orion Pax (or one of his redecos) to strip down. The GalvaConvoy sets FP are selling do not come with hardware.

I believe this means no screws or pins to assemble him with.

Things I want:

Most wanted set. This was my sons first BotCon so if I could get a set on the cheap it would be one last cool memory for he and I to split.

Rodimus and Arcee, naturally

Pretender set (really I only want Optimus.)

See, I do really want Pretender Prime. But I might be getting Oilmaster from someone splitting up that set. And even though I'd prefer Prime, Oilmaster would be the right price.

Wish someone mentioned splitting the two pack yesterday. I didn't even think of asking here.

What I really, really want is for the Pretender two pack to make it to 90% off.

I think I did? But yeah, it'd be nice to get it even cheaper... it's just I don't know if I should chance it.

Oh, well I apologize if I messed up our chance to be showered in Pretenders.

I'm gonna take a hard look at my toy budget later today.

Dude, if it makes it to Friday (very likely) , it'll be $16 bucks for two deluxes. I've seen Wal*Mart clearance prices less competitive.

I'd considered getting one of those Galva Convoys, but then I remembered the difficulty I had in assembling custom class figures while I was actually in the class, with instructions and folks with access to better tools (and talent!) handy, and realized I could never hope to achieve satisfactory results on my own.

 

You're a braver man than I.

 

That said, there was a discussion some time back about whether the Allspark might consider hosting scans of the Instruction books to those classes. I'm happy to contribute the 2009, 2013, and 2016 books, but I don't want to run afoul of site policy if we still think those should be considered off-limits for some reason.
