In case anyone's wondering.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 06:46 PM)

Also, she pronounces her own name "Zuh-see".

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 September 2019 - 03:04 PM)

I think I'd read a while back she was born in Berlin

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 September 2019 - 03:04 PM)

I thought Zazie Beetz was really fantastic in Deadpool 2. Really looking forward to seeing her in Joker.

@  Liege : (20 September 2019 - 12:05 PM)

Any sightings of Ratchet at U.S. Walgreens yet? A couple of stores around me have recently restocked their toy aisles but no Ratchets yet at those ones.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:54 AM)

You don't even hear a hint of an accent, and she only very rarely chooses some odd wording where she probably wasn't familiar with the more appropriate alternative due to its relative obscurity.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:41 AM)

Just watched what's possibly the most relaxed interview ever of a German Youtuber interviewing Zazie while walking around Berlin. Turns out she was born in Berlin and spent quite some time in Germany.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:39 AM)

Actors and actresses I had no idea speak fluent German, part 4.231: Zazie Beetz from Deadpool 2.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:14 PM)

It's too bad it's like this because some of what they're doing with tiny cars is pretty cool, but I'm not willing to sign up for that f-ing hassle.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:13 PM)

At this point I'm trying to decide how much of a markup I'm willing to pay some scalper scum or if I should just say to hell with it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 September 2019 - 02:11 PM)

That is pretty much the constant story with Hot Wheels. Anything you might actually want has most likely been picked clean and marked up.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:02 PM)

I've been watching some Youtube Hot Wheels videos out of boredom and discovered there exists a new car that just came out maybe a month ago that looks just like one I had when I was little, and I've been looking around hoping to get it. Slim picking everywhere, but online there are a slew of sellers asking for 3 and 4x the retail price, plus a hefty shipping markup.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 01:59 PM)

Oh, that explains the problem I've encountered with finding one little car

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 September 2019 - 01:31 PM)

Oh boy. I work at Target, and literally every single morning, there are two or three guys outside who make a beeline straight to the Hot Wheels.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 September 2019 - 09:55 PM)

I've never read the source material and don't know much about it, but I enjoyed the first film quite a bit, and found the second alright

@  Sabrblade : (17 September 2019 - 09:49 PM)

The first movie was definitely not for me. I flat out hated it. Didn't even bother with the sequel.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2019 - 05:02 PM)

I liked the first movie a lot and enjoyed the original volume of the book, and the way they were developed in parallel was really interesting. It all got super extra unpleasant as soon as they went back though. I don't remember really whether the initial sequels are "good" or not, but either way both the second movie and the second run of the book quickly demonstrated that the property sure wasn't for me.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i have a real hard time offering praise of anything connected to an utter shitstain like Mark Millar.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2019 - 01:23 PM)

Kick Ass 2 was okay for what it was, a sequel to a film that was okay, just okay. It had a good performance from Nic Cage while the sequel had Jim Carrey who decided he didn't want to promote it after one of america's regularly scheduled massacres.

@  Benbot : (17 September 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Was Kick Ass 2 really that bad? I never got around to seeing it, but after watching the first movie again the other day, I'm thinking about it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 September 2019 - 11:10 PM)

If you file electronically, I find you usually get your refund within a couple weeks

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Well, lucky it took less than two months for me. For a little over 200 Euros.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Pretty much, yeah. Canada revenue will be all up your ass if you earn less than 200K and owe tax, but your refund is basically "duke nukem forever".

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Whereas if you overpaid and they have to refund you, they will take their sweet time to let you know.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Like, here in Germany, if the tax authority responds to your tax report quickly, you can rest assured they want more money.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Do tax authorities in other countries base their time to respond to filed tax reports on whether they owe or are owed as well?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 11:13 AM)

Check what the requirements are for your cad program, and try to beat them by about 20%, and understand that software requirements have been stable for a few years: not really keeping up with the advancements in hardware. Unless you're doing something SPECIFIC which requires ludicrous amounts of power, just give your self a cushion on hardware and don't bother going whole hog.

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 10:16 AM)

What I'm currently using is an i5 2018 Surface Laptop. My current desktop is all but dead. I think in the end affordability will win out over specs. I need to use CAD programs, but I'm a student, not a professional.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 10:06 AM)

Okay. Whats the specs on the I7 and what are you currently using?

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 09:23 AM)

fun and games

@  wonko the sane? : (09 September 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Depends entirely on what you use the computer for.

@  Steevy Maximus : (09 September 2019 - 11:52 AM)

Probably not

@  Benbot : (09 September 2019 - 09:39 AM)

It's as if someone at Disney finally asked Dave Filoni what they should do to right the ship. Ironically, I hated the prequel movies, but I loved TCW.

Likely Resistance season 2, if it gets one, I mean Ahsoka didn't reappear until the end of season 1 of rebels and only for a few moments, similar could happen here, thou it could very well be that Resistance gets lost in the backwash of the storm that is Clone Wars season 7

I feel like Resistance is pretty late in the timeline to be getting back to Ezra and co surely? Obviously it's possible, but I'd expect to see it somewhere else.

I'm definitely excited for this. Filoni has said they are just getting to do the final season they wanted to all along before the acquisition, so it shouldn't require too much in the way of gymnastics for it to still fit into the timeline. Just because Anakin and Ahsoka meet one last time, doesn't mean it's not still years before they meet again in Rebels.

And the Ahsoka novel already described a missing adventure, so there's been a "Clone Wars Season 7"-shaped hole in the new continuity almost since the beginning. This is just filling it in.

I wonder if perhaps this time around, the finale will conclude with Anakin and Obi-Wan being recalled to Coruscant for the start of Episode III, like the ending of the 2003 micro-series.

So when they talked about unproduced Clone Wars episodes, they mentioned a character called Nyk Okami. Ashoka would have meet him, when she journeyed to the Coruscant underworld. I think they would have had a brief romantic relationship.

 

Well from the trailer and concept art they seem to have, changed Nyk to be a young woman. So I guess Ahsoka's going to have a girlfriend now.

 

Unless they changed that bit....

Liking Ahsoka's new look and sabers.  Ray Park did the motion capture for the Maul duel.  We find out why he called Ahsoka "Lady Tano" in Rebels.

So yeah, the main details in summary are:

- Three four-episode arcs.
- Character models are all upgraded from the original show, even if it's not immediately obvious. They've taken the technical advances they've made since TCW and are applying them to the revival.
- First arc is "Bad Batch", as previously released in 'story reel' form. Sounds like it's gonna be more-or-less unchanged from those reels.
- Second arc is a rewritten version of the "Ahsoka's Walkabout" arc where she hangs out on Level 1313 on Coruscant. Nyx Okami has been replaced with a pair of sisters named Trace and Rafa - will Ahsoka still have a romance story with one of them? The Pyke spice-dealing plot from the original version is still there, but it seems to now also feature Bo-Katan and the Mandalorian resistance. There was originally supposed to be another Ahsoka arc before the finale, the "under the Jedi temple" one, and I'm guessing whatever character development Ahsoka would've gone through in those two arcs will now be condensed into this single arc.
- Third arc is, of course, the Siege of Mandalore. Seems like it's probably pretty similar to the original plan (although I'm guessing they'll have to add something to account for the events of Son of Dathomir - recap it in the newsreel?). Maul's redesigned to evoke his look in Solo, and had Ray Park do fight scene mo-cap.

One thing is clear to me watching that trailer, they are obviously marking the passage of time for Ahsoka & Anakin by their actual looks, Ahsoka looks like a cross between her days in Clone Wars and her appearance in Rebels, so this is a Good thing with a capital G!!

 

I just presumed the title asspect was given to note worthy Jedi who chose to leave the order, like Dooku did and got give the title of Count as a symbol of his years of service and becoming a Jedi of note among the thousands of Jedi in existance.
