Seems the area near my work place is due to be gentrified. Electric car ports, fifty pound haircuts and five pound bowls of cereal in breakfast cafes I'll bet.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 11:31 PM)

@ZakuConvoy Lumines Electric Symphony. So still halfway interesting, and it’ll play on the PS TV

@  Demovere Xeno : (19 October 2020 - 10:36 PM)

@Maximus: I paired the Battle Patrol with Ironworks and they look good together, though the Off Road Patrol would probably fit best as vehicles you're likely to find at a construction site.

@  ZakuConvoy : (19 October 2020 - 09:39 PM)

So...was it something like Tearaway or Gravity Rush or was it just a FIFA or a Madden?

My local Walmart FINALLY got a restock of Generations during the early September reset and got a big shipment of Earthrise wave 1 (the first I’d seen around here). IF, and that’s a big IF, they restock I’m expecting a bunch of wave 3. Or wave 2. But we’ll be skipping one of those waves.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:08 AM)

Brunt barely appeared here at all, wave 3 was pretty much skipped for a big load of wave 4, with Impactor and

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Brunt is shelfwarming around me. One walmart moved the whole lot of them off to a side shelf, but couldn't be added to liquidate them.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2020 - 09:01 PM)

Ironworks is a plague. No idea if it was overproduced or if nobody wants it but thing's clogging shelves.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 08:40 AM)

My local Symths is still chock full of Earthrise wave 1.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 08:24 AM)

Yup, generally so much they don't bother with any other waves as the existing stock doesn't sell out.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

All the damn time.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

If there's anything there's going to be plenty of stock, it's wave 1.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

I'm really not worried about wave 1 of a new line EVER.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 07:47 AM)

At least you got listings for kingdom. walmart canada won't list them until they're actually in stock and that could very well never happen. I'm gonna get mine from BBTS cause I'm not missing out on the maximals.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:32 AM)

And I don't buy the "they all sold out" explanation. The Kingdom figures are still listed.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:32 AM)

I don't see any of Friday's reveals at Walmart.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:23 AM)

There's a difference between "sold out" and "no trace of a listing".

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:23 AM)

There is still a listing for the scalped and sold out Walmart exclusive limited edition version of Gigawatt.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:22 AM)

But there should still be a listing.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 October 2020 - 06:30 AM)

Probably got scalped and sold out in seconds.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 04:10 AM)

And I don't see links anywhere either.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 04:10 AM)

So did Walmart somehow fail put up the Headmasters preorders as promised by Hasbro, or have the listings been taken down again? I cannot find them.

Feathered Depthcharge? Does he turn into a fish with feathers?

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 October 2020 - 11:57 AM)

i've seen fan vids of feathered Dinobot and Depthcharge (which got a top comment by someone who claims to be his voice actor) which show how CG progressed.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 October 2020 - 08:01 AM)

A great story, and characters which more than make up for the now dated looking (but still clean and fluid.) CGI.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 October 2020 - 03:31 AM)

Thanks to Kingdom I've been rewatching Beast Wars. Still tops.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 October 2020 - 03:19 AM)

If they manage to tie GI Joe into Transformers like I hear they're trying to do, and it manages to put Joe product on the shelves again? I will totally forgive even the worst movie ever.

@  Telly : (15 October 2020 - 12:58 AM)

they LOOK cool, but i dont like the size. i grew up in the late 70s and early 80s where action figure size was 3 3/4, so thats what i prefer

@  fourteenwings : (15 October 2020 - 12:32 AM)

I think the new G.I. Joe Classified figures are pretty cool.

@  Telly : (14 October 2020 - 07:11 PM)

speaking of gi joe, just bought my first gi joe figure since...2011? whenever the 30th anniversary/pursuit of cobra was. got the so-called "retro" storm shadow. only got him cause i missed the ultimate version way back when

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2020 - 02:13 PM)

He has to say something eventually...

@  Bass X0 : (14 October 2020 - 02:11 PM)

New G.I. Joe anything has been a disappointment. The biggest of which is what I hear they will do with SnakeEyes.

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The disappointment of the new GI Joe game has been offset by the arrival of PRINNYS!

@  Nevermore : (14 October 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Sure, but as a unionized worker myself, it's a hot button topic for me.

Welcome all, to the 2020 edition of the fitness thread. If you're new here, it's quite simple. Exercises are generally broken up by region of the body, upper body, lower, core, ect. And we count cardio under distance covered. Keep track of your reps and miles, and share them here if you want. Otherwise, ask question, share answers and help support the other folks on the allspark whom are looking to get into better shape, lose weight, change their eating habits, or just be healthier.

 

Normally, we have community goals for totals on the stuff we track, but I think we absolutely murdered some, and completely missed on others last year SO we're going to eschew markers and just count up totals instead.

 

Miles: 0 + 3.1 = 3.1
Uppers:
Lowers:
Core:

 

And since I took a nice long walk on new years day, I'm more than happy to start the whole thing off. :)

I weighed myself this morning.

Im currently 322. This is less than my highest maximum weight which was 336 back in high school but massively higher than the 197 I got myself down to about ten years ago.

My life situation has changed and Im in a better place mentally than I have been in quite a while so I feel like I can make some real progress this year.

My current goal is to be 280 or less by June.

I missed weighing myself last Jan 1, 2020 so, for Jan 3, 2020, I am... 149.0lbs.

The goal is still 135lbs. Or 140+lbs with muscle. I can do it! I will do iiiiiit!

Dont we all??  lol.  BTW, Calories during the holiday season dont count, so you're OK!  

 

I think Ill be at the gym tonight when I wake up (working nights right now) and Ill get on the scale then. Gotta get my miles up, 2 5K's this month.  Ill probably do some sprint work on the treadmill tonight.

215 pounds this morning. Trying to get down to 200 by the end of April. I think it's doable.

 

I prefer being outside for a run than working out indoors, so these next 2-3 months are going to suck.

Nothing helps me work out more than knowing I've got a run coming up. It's a great motivator.

They do at least one 5K a month, themed around whatever we are celebrating that month. The one at the end of the month is for MLK, not real sure what the one this Friday is.

Uppers: 50

Did interval sprints on the treadmill tonight when I got up. Was working on full body weights, got through legs and was finishing shoulders when I felt like I was going to throw up and felt 100% out of energy. Core workout get skipped too. Ive been taking Animal Cuts for weight loss.  Supposed to take with food when you wake up, I took them with just water.  Probably why I felt like shit.  

 

For the intervals, same as I've done in the past, but since we have some new faces in the crowd Ill explain the workout in case you want to try it. 

30 min of running/walk (or whatever you want/can do)
0 - 1 min, walk at speed lvl 4 (15 min mile pace)

1 - 2 min, run at 7.5. (you pick the speed, 7.5 is an 8 min mile)

I did that for the first 10 min, then bumped the run up to 8 for the next 10 min.

The final 10 min, I went to 8.5 with the last 2 sprints being at 9.  

Ive done it before, but was in better shape. I tried to change the walk to a jog at 6.  Realized that was going to overwork me.

But....

 

1) its raining

2) Its cold

3) (And the main reason Im NOT running it) My leg is sore from my workout the other day.  Ill be 40 in May.  Ive learned not to push it when I get muscle aches and pains.  I know rest is what it needs.  unfortunately.  Guess Ill get some extra sleep today!

Sorry you missed the 5K, but better to miss a run than to hurt yourself.

 

I managed to get a walk in yesterday before the rain set in. I know I'm slacking this week, but between mom who went in for surgery on monday (laproscopic full hystorectomy. She was home on tuesday.) and me having apparently caught a mild cold, I'm just sore, tired and with no where near the patience to actually get any real exercising done.

Today was mostly spent cutting/putting up wood panels at my in-laws with TMM. I think we're finally done! ...for now. Decent amount of up/down stairs and general manual labor. No idea how to calculate that in, though. Also I think we're both coming down with a cold.
