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.

If you owe, you're expected to actually pay it at the time you file, before they even process your return

@  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)

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

Alright. The damages now seem to include my primary SSD. Thankfully, the gaming drive (I have now lost all my games and mods entirely.) Let me wipe it and install there. Once the crucial utility is installed again, will verify the drive.

Everyone's always complaining now about how everything has to be G1, and now people are upset that Brian's making a new character and not using some rando whose sole defining trait was that he was a weirdo who got fridged.

I think it wasn't so much complaining that Geomotus wasn't Geosensus, as asking why they would resurrect the name and character just to change it, on the assumption they were related, then disagreements over whether they could in fact not be. If that had held any water, it would have been different IMO to insisting that the prose story guy inherently just needs a second pass right this instant. Like, the extreme comparison of this specific aspect of the disagreement (let's please no one get distracted by any of the others, the analogy isn't meant to fit them) would be IDW introducing a cowardly and disloyal leader of the Decepticons jets named Starbeam - no one would be talking about the IDW original character suddenly replacing the worthy Starscream, they'd be asking why Starscream was changed.


That said I'm not sure what the overlap between fans who are regularly upset by too much G1 and ones regularly upset by IDW original characters is.
Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Well I’ve officially designed my first all-new female Transformer in a while. For something.....

 

Who knows, maybe it’ll be a toy someday.

 

Interesting; Griffith will not say just yet who this character is or where she will appear. I feel like Termagax's upcoming on-panel debut in June is too soon for her to have been fully designed just now in March, but who knows?

Maybe something movie-related? I kind of assumed Griffith and Milne would be the least likely of the regular IDW artists to be involved in the reboot, at least early on.

The way he phrased it makes me feel like it's for something a bit out of the ordinary we don't know about yet. Given his later response to questions about it, this sounded like something we'll see within like 6 months which is probably too soon for it to be the new Netflix toon or Cyberverse.

-ZacWilliam, What, I couldn't guess... Maybe like a kid's storybook or some sort of one shot. I could imagine it for the Ghostbusters book or something else of the type.

#3 isn't on the shipping list for April 10th. There's barely anything at all from IDW scheduled for next week, so it looks like the standard IDW's printing and/or shipping is terrible situation.

Well never let it be said that Tumblr users don't jump the gun to conclusions.

 

@Brian_Ruckley Are we going to be seeing representation of openly and canonically gay/lesbian couples and transgender characters in the new Transformers series like we did in the previous ones from IDW? Because that was a huge part of why that continuity is my favourite to date
 

No spoilers, but I do aim to 'echo' (for want of a better word) the representation that was there before, yes - I'd be lying if I said it's going to be heavy foreground early on, but - 1/2

- I do have it as a sort of basic assumption for this universe, and it won't be invisible. (Think the first mention of such a couple might be in dialog in 4, but don't hold me to that, cos I'm not at my computer!)

 

And on a different subject:

 

@Brian_Ruckley Is Megatron a Cybertronian supremacist? Or does he like organic life, too?

 

Not a supremacist exactly, but an expansionist for sure. And to be honest, in this universe, he's far from alone in being a Cybertronian who finds organic life some version of uninteresting/odd/a bit inferior.

I’ve had a number of people ask if I’m involved in the IDW Transformers reboot. Simple answer is Yes. I contributed to issue 4, and there will be more to come soon after that.

So Comixology says #3 is April 17 - three weeks after #2? Did we know the schedule was going to work out that way or were we still expecting only a two week gap?

 

Not that my intent here is all "falling sky, IDW delays again aaaiiieeeee" or whatever - just curious.

Some news! I’ll be doing some art in issue 4 of the @IDWPublishing #Transformers reboot, and got to design a new female character for it. Can’t say much about her role but @IDW_David_M gave me permission to share her design. Colors are the rough ideas I shared with @jcburcham.
