While I agree with you in principal: the problem here isn't the internet service providers. Though the onus of fixing it as a systemic problem is probably on them.

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 April 2021 - 03:16 PM)

then how would honest Canadian companies like Rogers or Bell be able to overcharge you for content, or not even make the content available in your region for varied and unknowable reasons?

@  wonko the sane? : (20 April 2021 - 02:33 PM)

It's on the internet, but the internet is being treated like it's regional. It doesn't matter that I'm in canada, It's the internet. Stop enforcing outdated and completely arbitrary broadcast restrictions on the global telecommunication network.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 April 2021 - 02:32 PM)

Nope, security is not my concern at all.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (20 April 2021 - 01:56 PM)

I mean, if you're not worried about security and just using it to access geolocked content, there are free vpns.

They must not have really wanted to sell you anything.

@  Sabrblade : (16 April 2021 - 09:19 AM)

This just happened to be the first time one ever gave up and walked away immediately after ringing the bell. Like, no patience at all or something.

door to door salesmen (or those offering religion) certainly are one of the things lost to COVID that I've missed the least

@  Sabrblade : (15 April 2021 - 10:07 AM)

They rang the bell and were walking away before I even got to the door mere seconds later.

@  Sabrblade : (15 April 2021 - 10:06 AM)

I just got ding-dong-ditched by a salesperson.

No.. It's Tiberious Maximus... And there is a comic with such already. :D

@  Donocropolis : (12 April 2021 - 11:15 AM)

Yes. Color it like the Energon version of Unicron. Also, give us Fortress Tiberious.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 April 2021 - 09:49 AM)

Great. Now I want a borg cube unicron...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (12 April 2021 - 09:00 AM)

@  Kalidor : (11 April 2021 - 09:48 PM)

The only Titan figure I ever saw at retail was Trypticon at Ollie's

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 April 2021 - 09:12 PM)

Robosen Prime has market crossover with not just the toy collectors, but robotics enthusiasts quite willing to pay that price for a product like this.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 April 2021 - 08:33 PM)

One of my two local TRUs will stock exactly ONE titan at a time. It usually ends up "clearanced" for about 20 bucks off cause no one is willing to pay for at full price OR discounted.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 April 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Most stores don't seem to want to stock Commanders or Titans, never mind Unicron.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 April 2021 - 07:55 PM)

I wonder if Unicron going to crowdfuning wasn't just a price issue but also stores not wanting to stock and transport something so huge.

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 April 2021 - 07:47 PM)

It is, although this thing could also be considered a STEM educational tool

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 April 2021 - 07:33 PM)

Doesn't change the fact that, for most people, $700 is a pretty hefty investment for a toy.

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 April 2021 - 07:17 PM)

I dunno, $700 doesn't seem that bad for what it does. Some of those Masterpiece figures seem to go for at least half that price, and they don't have any actual robots or even electronics.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 April 2021 - 05:35 PM)

Not to mention wallet-shattering.

I learned a couple days ago that Magia Record had an NA-exclusive character. The NA version shut down a few months ago, but apparently she's been added to the JP version now.

I wonder if anybody who signed up for PriPara ever knew it'd be 2020 and they'd still be performing "Happy Pa Lucky" at concerts.

 

In addition it's odd that Brand New Dreamer is technically a song by sisters but since it's from the arc where Non was three people and none of them were her it's also not? Yet when performed at concerts it is. In the anime, it's by Laala, Kanon, Pinon and Junon (it's also the only PriPara OP not by i☆Ris).

Apparently there's official Kancolle art of DDG Kirishima. A ship I recognize from the Savior of Song music video



"Modern day ships that appeared in both Kancolle and Arpeggio" is probably a very small set.

Bandai really doesn't want to make anything other than model kits, don't they. They should just become a model kit company like Aoshima.

Speaking of guns, Uesaka has apparently done (at least) two photoshoots for this gun magazine

Also, I just found out about this thing in World of Warships:

A design for completing an H-class battleship as a heavy aircraft carrier.


An aircraft carrier, modified from a battleship that didn't exist. That's like, two layers of made up.

We need more. Like something based on blueprints that in reality ended up becoming something else.

 

I wonder if they picked Uesaka because she always has that "I might use this on you just for fun" look in her eyes.

Well, some of the non-existent ships in that game were specifically designs that didn't get built because the navy wanted something else. e.g. Izumo, which was one of the designs rejected in favor of Yamato.

I've had this idea for a fictional warship that's H-shaped with a tower in the middle, and one side has the runway of an aircraft carrier while the other has the giant cannons of a battleship.

You're right, might as well stick three ships together and make a massive trireme that's two battleships with an aircraft carrier's runway between them. Would be marginally less impractical than a battleship with a runway on each side.

More World of Warships unhistorical wackiness:

Bajie is basically Izumo but dressed up in a Journey to the West theme. So like, a Chinese knockoff of a ship that was never made.

Sovetskaya Rossiya not only represents the uncompleted (the Soviet Union tried to build them, but gave up) Sovetsky Soyuz-class, it's specifically a ship version of the Azur Lane character.

I found a Warship Girls wiki.

Turns out, that game has some of the same never-made ships as Azur Lane, but under different names.

(Warship Girls on the left, Azur Lane on the right)

li6CJV7.png

The design B65 cruiser is just B65 in Warship Girls, but Azur Lane calls her Azuma (because that's the name World of Warships uses).

L4CC9qB.png

Battleship H39 is Hindenburg in Warship Girls, but Friedrich der Große in Azur Lane (and World of Warships).

Warship Girls H39 is better than Azur Lane's but Azur Lane's B65 is just too cool to ignore.
