I take objection to the idea that public health is "politics" just because some politicians don't listen to the experts.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:59 AM)

I was only replying to the general sentiment of the last three posts before mine.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

The person you replied to specifically gave the example of "limiting the amount of people in a facility".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

This wasn't about "lock[ing] everyone in the country down".

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:57 AM)

All I'm saying is there are lockdown and anti-lockdown people and hashing it out in the shoutbox on a toy forum is dumb.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

You don't have to lock everyone in the country down to mitigate risks in one population.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

Of course older people have it worse, but America is one of those countries where people ship their old people to homes far away from the action anyways.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

What ar you even trying to say, anyway? That we shouldn't complain about others increasing the danger more than necessary?

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

Frankly, there's a lot to say on this issue that can't be encompassed on the shoutbox and I really really don't want to have to deal with politics every single time I check the forums.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:54 AM)

To claim that this is about the people in the 20-40 range is also disingenuous.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:53 AM)

Essential workers and such are pretty fit on average which is an extra boon for them.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:51 AM)

It's not really a personal choice issue, it's a risk versus well, anything you want to do issue. Literally leaving the house results in potential exposure, mask or no. Overall, most of us who hang out here are 20-40, and our survival rate is comparable with some pretty out there statistics.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:39 AM)

Anybody who has to go out because of work or groceries or whatever can't just choose to avoid any potential disease-spreaders, for one thing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:38 AM)

Kind of disingenuous to frame this as just a personal choice issue.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:22 AM)

This whole "I can't handle people not me having the choice to not put on masks" thing's a bit much.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 March 2021 - 09:14 AM)

Hey, Florida is one of the most infected states, and we won't even shut down. We may use masks, but restaurants, clubs, you name it, those are still wide open. Also, what's limiting the amount of people in a facility again? :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 March 2021 - 04:18 PM)

I've heard new appliances are hard to get, for some reason

@  wonko the sane? : (03 March 2021 - 04:13 PM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 February 2021 - 07:22 AM)

Didn't that come right after the 2016 clown panic? No way to make clowns not disturbing at the time, surely.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:26 AM)

The clown guise is supposed to lure kids in, it's no good if it looks sus in one glance.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:15 AM)

The new one tries too hard to be unsettling from the start. Curry's look is just a plain old clown, until he very much is not.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:14 AM)

And Curry has a far more disturbing look at times than the newbie.

@  Sabrblade : (28 February 2021 - 02:22 AM)

And the original was a showcase of Tim Curry's delightfulness as an actor. 'Nuff said.

@  unluckiness : (27 February 2021 - 10:19 PM)

@  tigerhawk : (27 February 2021 - 04:57 PM)

If everyone had COMMON SENSE, then things would maybe go a little better-

@  repowers : (24 February 2021 - 05:33 PM)

If everyone would just have the exact same opinions as me then we wouldn't have this problem

@  Kalidor : (24 February 2021 - 01:49 PM)

It just depends on what it is. It is preferable to take it to P&R though. But sometimes current news as it's happening is less restrictive.

@  fourteenwings : (24 February 2021 - 12:18 AM)

Huh, good point (x3)

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 February 2021 - 11:46 AM)

Yeah. 1. People treat it like Twitter. 2. There's no "take it to P&R" since there's no P&R for the Shoutbox. 3. There's similarly no way to avoid either subjects or people in the Shoutbox since there's no division and it doesn't respect the ignore function, so people end up engaging when they normally wouldn't.

@Maruten, in case you can't find a Bullhop, I see him on shelf... here in Asia. There's going to be a sale next Friday so I was thinking of getting my Hypno then. I can get you a Bullhop. It's just shipping.

Oh wow. If you can get hold of one I'd love that and will happily pay cost and shipping to Australia. Amazon and eBay are just like, "yeah, nope". Oh, actually there's one on eBay now, first one I've seen there I think, but with shipping from the US it's au$150 which is insane.

Catching up on the finale, and man, do I love this series!

--LBD "Nytetrayn"

 

Recently got to watch this myself! Got lost on the way thanks to the confusing viewing order (couldn't make heads or trail between Wikipedia and KimCartoon), but made it. And it was a great wild ride, which I can say for the show itself too. 

 

I really enjoyed this show. More TMNT shows should have this energy and creativity. Interesting way of dealing with their wild and decidedly non-serious-ninja nature (with the previous season finale too), although it's also resulted in aborted character development each time. Then again, the show does make it so that you don't really WANT more serious stuff all that much. 

 

The 2012 one was a great coming-together of talents and characterization that stuck to the classic mold more faithfully, but this show ADDS so much new (or at least new-FEELING) stuff to the lore. Voice acting brought the really fun scripts to life really well, too! (I only belatedly realized that Draxum stopped being voiced by Cena much earlier than I thought, and that the Foot Recruit wasn't Paget Brewster after all but Zelda Williams!)



SO OKAY IT'S AVERAGE
Virtually every custom as good as the title suggests!

Got my Spider Shell Donnie. Apparently he and the aquatic jet pack version are "chase" figures though I didn't have to "shell out" (hahahahahahaha etc) much above retail. The arms are a pretty iconic element of the character I think, so I was keen to get this one. 

 

Wasn't sure if the spider pack was going to be removable or compatible with the standard figure's battle shell, but yup. All this Donatello stuff is nicely interchangeable. The different colour on the bo and battle shell are a nice bonus to mix things up I guess. I think the figure itself is unchanged (other than the Spider Shell version having a slightly shoddier paint job).

That takes me to the end of my "must have" figures (once I get Bullhop THANK YOU MYSTERIOUS ANGEL WHO POSTS IN THIS THREAD). I'm not interested in every Turtle variant, though I will probably track down the Bug Bustin' Raph and Leo eventually because their hats are pretty cool.

Endless gratitude to Fero who helped me acquire the last character I was missing.

He's brilliant. It's kind of a shame that he made it to retail when more significant characters like Repo Mantis and Big Mama were cancelled, but I'm still very happy to add Bullhop to the team.

Hehe. He Bull-hopped across the world.

I rather liked how character. I figured he was a homage to an actor, from his inflection (Jerry Lewis?). Shame he only had a few appearance. Todd the Capybara had more but I guess he isn't a marketable, whoops.

Yeah, I would have liked a Repo Mantis toy. Big Momma, I think her human look is more iconic.

Hmm, who got the most appearances among the extra villains? Big Momma and Hypno?

This is a quick and dirty cut and paste from IMDB, and some of these numbers may be additional characters rather than the actor's main dude, but it looks to be something like this. It's surprisingly even for basically everyone major once you get down past Draxum and the Foot.

I ended up getting Wave 1 Rise Donnie since I couldn't find Spider Shell Donnie. I could have gotten the Battle Shell with the convenient folding Bo, but, well, I didn't like the look as much. So yeah, it's the first Bo with the twirl wind effect.

(I also saw a CGI Donnie which I actually HAD before but I never opened. I sold it off along with the other three but, well, I might as well get him again and finally open him. I really would have preferred the Battle Shell version of that, haha).

Btw, saw this list while googling.

https://www.cbr.com/...as-done-ranked/

It's weird that they listed Donnie killing Shredder in the original comic but they put the Nick TMNT Same as It Never Was episode, where Donnie murders Shredder is an absolutely gruesome way, as a footnote to 'he keeps the team together'.

I'd switch out the Sons of Silence part with Archie Donnie beating his three brothers in intergalactic wrestling. That was a crowning moment. He was the best fighter in the Archie-verse, though I don't agree that he was better just because he read books. In fights, he needs actual practice. It wouldn't have been enough if he read about new moves.

Edit - oh yeah, Rise Donnie thrashing the hex out of Leo in the sewer olympics ep totally counts as badass! He beat him with a broken/sprained leg! And that disgusting icky nerves of steel event was the best/worst, haha. Great Donnie achievement ep, even if he still got screwed in the end, haha.

My son just opened his Christmas Meat Sweats. It was purchased at the same store as mine, only a day or two apart, but the mutant pig tentacle attachment is completely different.

This is one of my favourite toys of 2020 so I guess I gotta find me a second one.
