Hound is at least a very good toy.

@  ThunderWear : (18 November 2019 - 09:11 AM)

Hound is the only other one that even comes close to Chromia in my area, and he ships in two separate waves.

@  Liege : (18 November 2019 - 08:58 AM)

This might be how they finally get rid of all the Chromias. I've not seen a shelfwarmer like that in ages.

It's a good deal if you want a full set of Refraktor (and if they have them at your location)

Here we can buy two and get one free, but at least two of them are gonna be the same toy, because lol distribution.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 12:49 PM)

It was set in the forties, featured Nazi's as the villains and had Kiko fight mostly Ice Age animals and a mythical dragon that now ruled the island guarding Kongs treasure.

To be fair to boba: everyone else to go into the sarlacc was a sacrifice. Stripped almost naked and tossed, and didn't have body armor, a jetpack and a weapon.

Nah, he just has to keep up his plot insurance payments so he can shoot his way out of the Sarlacc again.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

@  Patch : (13 November 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Just a particularly odious example of the 90s era of depicting transgender women as either the subject of crude humor, or "Jerry Springer" material.

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 10:45 AM)

sonics' still gonna be a terrible movie but at least they whined loud enough to make him look passable for a 2-minute trailer. "yay."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:37 AM)

But of course to annoying people there's no such thing as different decisions made for different reasons, there is only "I like it so it's right" and "I don't like it so it's wrong."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Even if we pretend it's objective truth that they were both bad, then they were bad in very different ways.

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Sonic's previous movie design looked genuinely bad. The Transformers '07 designs just looked insufficiently like what certain loud and obnoxious parts of the fandom think Transformers are required to always look like.

@  Otaku : (13 November 2019 - 08:50 AM)

Do we really need to have Every Movie Transformer Thread Ever in the Squawkbox?

@  Bass X0 : (13 November 2019 - 08:13 AM)

Sure it made money but that doesn’t mean it has appealing character designs. Lot of god awful fugly faces in the Transformers movies.

@  Otaku : (12 November 2019 - 08:25 PM)

@Liege My issue with Transformers (2007) were elements I thought were unnecessary.  I know it was supposed to just be a joke, but I didn't ever need to hear about "Sam's Happy Time". >.> Which, being in awe of the first "live action" TF-film, didn't even register until I'd already purchased and watched it on DVD a few times (after seeing it in theaters 3 times).

@  Liege : (12 November 2019 - 08:22 PM)

For all the Bayisms in the 07 movie, it was tempered by Spielberg as producer. Designs aside it was an enjoyable popcorn blockbuster about a boy and his first car who happens to be an alien from another planet. They sequels are just Bay going unchecked after he proved how much bank he could bring in.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 November 2019 - 07:12 PM)

I didn't find the designs in the '07 movie to be that bad, personally. What got really offputting was how Cybertronians in general become such huge a-holes in the later films; the designs were very much secondary to their horrible personalities

So, let's try to keep it to no Spoilers for Endgame without tags, but where do folks see the MCU going next?

We've got Spidey: Far From Home coming in a couple months as the final film of this phase and then we don't quite know what's next. There are a number of films we know are in the works:

Black Widow
Eternals
Dr. Strange 2
Guardians of the Galaxy 3
Black Panther 2
Captain Marvel 2
and Shang Chi: Master of Kung-Fu

3 new Characters and 4 Sequels could take us at least two more years out . Which is about where Marvel has said it would be before we saw any X-men or FF films.

What characters do folks want to see get a film that havn't?

Do you think there will be any more Avengers films with new members or is that team done for now?

How long do you think it'll take before Marvel starts to begin building to another big crossover event?

Other thoughts about what's next?


-ZacWilliam, My answers: Black Knight, Joe Fixit, She-Hulk and say Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur. I would guess they're done for now but not forever, Young Avengers seems like too good an idea not to do in a year or two. My feeling is that they should (and will) take a Phase off, giving us at least a few years before things begin to build again.

Don't forget, 2 more series coming to Disney+, and four more to Hulu- although there may be an ownership battle brewing over that so those shows might take a while. 

 

 

I would guess at least one or more would be devoted to filling the gaps from the Endgame story.

I would not expect any big world-changing fallout from the whole Thanos thing. That sort of stuff happens every other week in comic books and once the villain is defeated you get *at most* an issue or two aftermath/clean up from events that in the real world would change the nation or the world forever and then things settle back down to "normal."

Because part of the Marvel Comics conceit is that these amazing stories are taking place in what is otherwise "the world outside your window." It's the same reason Reed Richard's super science never changes the world in the ways it really would. I 100% expect the MCU to follow suit. We'll get a few mentions of things from these two films certainly but otherwise, for all practical purposes the world will be back to "normal" for the next story.

-ZacWilliam, I'd be very very surprised by anything else.

Spider-Man wasn't originally in their roadmap, but they made room for him once he became available.  They can (and should) do the same with the Fantastic Four.  Marvel's First Family needs to be in the mix.

 

Oh yeah, an A-Force movie would be cool too.

What I heard, Larson, the actress playing Captain Marvel, wants a all Female Avengers (and this was her answer to a question would she rather co star with Hulk or Thor), she even wants to direct a MCU film of her own and I'm thinking "WTF are you insane woman?" Then the head of marvel prior to Captain Marvel been saying Captain Marvel is the face of the MCU going forwards but the actress isn't sitting well with many people including her Co-stars for End Game.

 

I haven't seen End Game, yet, I'll go in a few days when the serious cowrds have died down a bit and when I got a day off and 3 plus hours to spare

I don't particularly like or care about the Fantastic Four, but I think that's the direction I'd like to see the MCU go anyway.  I don't know how it'd work, though. I'd almost rather see a new, younger team that gets established post-Endgame than trying to make it so they'd been there all along.

 

Using FF would give them more big ticket villains to work with. As a "casual," I know who Dr. Doom, Galactus, and Thanos are - anybody else outside of some X-men stuff is a big, "who?"

Which is sad. But after Fox biffed the latter two FF attempts and even failed to stick the landing the first time I know Id be gun shy to try it again.

But Doom! Galactus! Super Skrull! Franklin! Val! So many characters Id love to see a take on in the MCU.

But I think we have a Young Avengers/Champions movie in the works. Pete may still be a tad young to run with the big leagues full time but I could see him leading the next generation especially with the set up we have over the course of the movies.

Cassie has been set up as idolizing her Dad so I could definitely see her taking up her hero Persona of either Stature or Stinger

We have the kid from Iron Man 3 who could become a version of Iron Lad or the other potential young Iron person

Potentially there is a young Hawkeye as well. We know there are Skrulls in exile so Hulkling is a possibility.

Kamala seems like a bit of a stretch as Carol hasnt even made that big of a public appearance that we know yet.

But you can say that the next generation of heroes are being prepared.

I'm wondering about that too. Captain Marvel Brie seems ok. Does she just not have the charisma of Robert Downey Jr?

Cripes, I want to discuss character progression but it would still be Endgame spoilers.

Young Avengers, yes. But there's New Warriors TV show, right?

Let's say for the future, for Phase Six, what would be culminating big event be?

Secret Invasion is sorta done (and I'm not into Bendis so much). Not into House of M or A Vs X either but mutants would be awesome.

So I'd say the big crossover they'll build up to would be Secret War. Mixed in with Contest of Champions.

Take two phases to build up new characters AND villains. Then have a cosmic being gather them all up in Battleworld (or whatever) to fight each other. Sure, it's Hunger Games (which is passe now?) but, wow, I would seriously love to see my heroes go all out on each other. It's Civil War but no holds barred.

Villains would be included in the kidnapping since they have powers. Doctor Doom would be scheming his way around everything. Can redeem villains into heroes along the way too.

Far From Home has officially been stated to be the epilogue for Phase 3, so we'll hopefully see there how the fallout from Endgame goes.

 

I'd love to see Annihilation, done as a big crossover film event, so you'd get 'Captain Marvel: Annihilation' and 'GotG: Annihilation' and stuff.

 

We're almost certainty getting Young Avengers, based on Cassie and cut roles and the WandaVision TV show.

 

I've no idea what's happening with New Warriors, I would have thought it would have been out by now.

No one knows what's up with the Squirrel Girl and the New Warriors show. A pilot was filmed. Free form ordered it to series and then apparently changed their mind. Marvel said they were shopping it around to other channels in 2018, but there's been no word since. Honestly at this point I suspect it's dead. Just too much time has passed.

I'd love a Squirrel Girl movie. It'd need just the right director and cast but I'd love it if done right.


-ZacWilliam, Champions or Young Avengers should be on their fast track IMO. I'd be curious which they go with. On name recognition I expect YA to be their choice, but ya never know.

-ZacWilliam, there's nothing about the FF that makes them any less able to be a good film than the Guardians of the Galaxy say. It all comes down to understanding the property, a good director and good casting. Marvel has been pretty great at those things so I'm not too worried.
