death comes for us all. what difference does it make how?

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 January 2021 - 06:26 PM)

It's only murder and that is all, why should I feel the way I do...

@  Rufus : (25 January 2021 - 01:37 PM)

It's only murder if it comes from the Murder region of France, otherwise it's just suspiciously deceased.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 January 2021 - 09:17 AM)

It's only murder if they find the body, otherwise it's just a missing persons case.

@  Telly : (24 January 2021 - 02:31 AM)

so light yagami is a BAD role model? but ive already got a death note...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 11:43 PM)

Do you always model proper behavior after anime characters?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 January 2021 - 06:34 PM)

Don't forget Yu-Gi-Oh and the Millennium items.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 January 2021 - 02:51 PM)

There was a five season anime with wearing relics as the premise.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 01:16 PM)

You don't wear relics, you enshrine them.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 06:23 PM)

Wrong holey... and probably the wrong way to dress too.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2021 - 06:09 PM)

If your underwear is old and holy, it is considered a relic and should be protected with your life.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 02:04 PM)

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

Target's better-

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

HA! my walmarts can't even sell underwear. There's no clearances going on up here.

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 05:36 PM)

Liking the WWII Bumblebee.  It'll probably be the first Studio Series figure I buy.  I lost interest in the movie styling a while back, but when I heard that The Last Knight would have some scenes set in and minor characters stated to be from the time period of World War II, I was hoping to get a few figures like this.  The "Sir Not Appearing in this Film" figures from previous movie lines were always my favorite part of those toylines, and I was a little disappointed to see that the Last Knight didn't produce any.

Well, there's no way they'd know how well Crowbar is doing while making this, so perhaps it was a gamble between rereleasing a figure that *absolutely* shelfwarmed for over a year vs a figure that *might* shelfwarm.
 
I dunno, they're making a big deal about screen accuracy in this line it doesn't seem possible they'd just confuse designs like that.

There is a way Hasbro would know what's shelfwarmers now.

About 2 years ago Konami ran a program, where people could volunteer to check 5-10 stores in thier area over the course of 3 months, and record how much of what Yu-Gi-Oh products were on shelves. (When the program concluded the volunteers were mailed a unique promotional token card)

Hasbro could just as easily run a similar program for the purpose of gathering market data.
We're not talking about Hasbro now knowing what's shelfwarming now, though. We're talking about Hasbro a year or so ago knowing what's shelfwarming now. They have to plan things out well in advance.

Yes I know it's broken. It's an HTTPS thing and I haven't gotten around to dealing with it yet.

I wouldn't call Crankcase getting stabbed in the head with a bomb that goes off about 10 seconds later ambiguous in any way.

I mean, that's one explanation of what happened, but another is that the spear is just a spear and he was kicked into an Exploding Store, which are common in Michael Bay's Washington DC.

If the renders are more representative of the final product than the hand-painted samples are, I'm starting to think Crankcase might be a better Crowbar than Crowbar is.

So that "Highway Freedom" Bumblebee/Charlie set that has been found at one Target store and didn't ring up in the syetem yet turns out to be that exclusive "Rebekah's Garage" set that turned up in Toys"R"Us's systems back in January.
http://www.therockfa...s-studio-series

It's now listed at Entertainment Earth:
https://www.entertai...clusive/hse2055

EDIT: And also at BBTS. I'm callng bul**** on these so-called Entertainment Earth "exclusives".
https://www.bigbadto...onDetails/80322

Wonder if the intended "Street Racer" and "Optimus Prime/Starscream set" TRU exclusives will also see the light of day.
