I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:23 AM)

Well there is an overpriced limited edition, but I don't want to pay that much money for it.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:21 AM)

Well great. The one Usagi Yojimbo volume I don't have and it's out of stock.

@  Rycochet : (17 January 2020 - 06:15 PM)

I both love and hate that the Alien franchise seems to have had more luck finding a niche as a line of children's toys than it has at producing worthwhile films.

@  Donocropolis : (17 January 2020 - 06:35 AM)

I've seen them on the shelves at Walmart. They're pretty great looking retro Aliens toys. https://www.walmart....-Vary/934039489

@  fourteenwings : (17 January 2020 - 01:11 AM)

IIRC somebody on here mentioned an unbranded Alien toy a couple of weeks ago? It seems like it was actually part of a collection for the Alien movie series by Lanard. Mattel's making some stuff too.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 January 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Is it really a worse name than say, HMS Spanker?

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 January 2020 - 02:36 PM)

'Boaty McBoatface' was a actual thing?! Wow.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (14 January 2020 - 02:00 PM)

Might be worth bringing back this thread.

@  ThunderWear : (14 January 2020 - 01:53 PM)

Of course I had the idea to download all the pdfs like a week too late. Anyone got an archive?

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 January 2020 - 12:48 PM)

The Collector Club is dead. Seems like it all came down shortly after New Year

@  ThunderWear : (13 January 2020 - 11:06 PM)

I can't get to the collector club website. anyone else? I was literally going to download all the fiction to finish reading.

Even in fallout, they never carpet bombed with nukes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 January 2020 - 12:43 PM)

I hope the stockpiled nuclear weapons of the US and Russia are accounted for then.

@  Nevermore : (12 January 2020 - 12:22 PM)

Geez. 1760 (!) bombs from World War II that had not detonated and were still armed have been found. That's only the numbers for the federal state of Germany I live in, and only for the first three quarters of 2019. For all of 2018, the total number was 2811 (!!) bombs.

@  CVReynolds : (11 January 2020 - 11:05 PM)

I've been wanting a Tarantulas that turns into a more realistic tarantula for a long time. Maybe Takara will someday do a Masterpiece, which would be neat. But I really want to see a modernized look like in the IDW comics.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 January 2020 - 09:43 PM)

We need more Waspinators.. and rattraps.

@  Ashley : (11 January 2020 - 07:09 PM)

I'm on board with that

@  Dekafox : (11 January 2020 - 06:17 PM)

What I'm hearing is we need Cyberverse Waspinator

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 January 2020 - 01:27 AM)

He's appeared across more branding changes than Waspinator, so maybe it's more the other way around.

@  Ashley : (10 January 2020 - 12:01 AM)

is C3PO the Waspinator of Star Wars? he'll live forever, because it's funny for him to suffer

@  Sabrblade : (09 January 2020 - 11:52 PM)

He's still waiting for them to be funny.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 January 2020 - 10:35 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 04:02 PM)

I mean, it is easier to protect HDDs, and you can retransfer the data over and over forever?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 January 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Not in this comparison. He's making his own files, so they're (presumably) not restricted by DRM, so he can copy them as many times as he wants. It's potentially more reliable in the long term than hoping the specific copies you originally bought never accrue any damage for the rest of your life.

@  Echowarrior : (09 January 2020 - 10:44 AM)

I prefer physical copies too. Easier to protect something physical and tangible.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 09:55 AM)

I prefer having physical copies.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 January 2020 - 08:56 AM)

I have plenty of physical media I turn into digital media for my plex server. Just finished ripping Ultra Seven

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Isn't the general consensus that we're supposed to be over physical media anyways?

@  Paladin : (09 January 2020 - 08:17 AM)

i still don't own a Blu-Ray player.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 January 2020 - 07:35 AM)

My current TV works just fine. I don't see a need to upgrade. And by the time I do, the Next Big Thing will probably be out anyway.

@  Benbot : (09 January 2020 - 03:58 AM)

Me neither. I'm no rebel, though. I'm just poor.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 03:38 AM)

I haven't gone 4K yet, I'm a rebel.

@  Ashley : (07 January 2020 - 11:50 PM)

the comic theme is amazing

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Sounds like Victor Caroli but I’m not sure.

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 02:35 PM)

Should I recognise the narrator of the Mutant Hunt trailer?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 January 2020 - 04:30 AM)

I got me Titans Return Blaster, now watch them unveil Earthrise Blaster and Generations Perceptor, a retool of Titans Blaster.

@  ThunderWear : (06 January 2020 - 10:22 PM)

I recently switched to to the comic theme here at the Allspark and I'm so happy I just want to look at it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (06 January 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Can you not take so many lines to say anything?

@  fourteenwings : (06 January 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Iunno, maybe people having unique pronunciations of things re:how they understand language makes the world a more colourful place, rather than one where we correct every seemingly grievous error?

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:12 AM)

Others insist on "Michael Yackson".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:01 AM)

Because the very combination of those sounds is unknown to them, and thus they avoid it as if it were contagious.

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:00 AM)

For example, the English "J" sound consists of sounds that exist in German: Basically, it's just a "d" sound followed by a very soft "sh". Yet there are many Germans who insist on calling the late King of Pop "Michael Checkson".

Then they invented Digital Cable, which can't be recorded (at least, not without a ~$300 piece of hardware to replace my VCR). icon-megs.gif

Ah well, it jus means they've forced me to resort to illegal downloads.

Supposedly the YTV website will be 'airing' the show at 5pm EST. Meaning Savvy webheads in different time zones could maybe watch it a few hours early...

Far as I know, the 5pm thing is just Canada.

So. . . Haircut, groceries, get back here, get that report as near to "done" as possible, start cooking dinner @ 4:30, eat at 5 while watching. My schedule's set.

Just a few hours now, at least for those of us in Canada. I guess if it's airing at 8 on Nick and YTV sticks to their schedule (though it would be a first), Canada will actually get to see new episodes before most of the U.S.

True, but nobody's being forced to upgrade to that at the moment. Cable service at all is more of an after-thought for me, as most of my TV viewing is from DVDs. The only members of my family who actually moved up to digital cable so far have been my aunt and uncle, who now pay more than $100 a month for service despite the fact they barely even watch TV. And this was after shelling out $1700 for an HDTV. Doesn't sound like a good deal to me.

For now, I think I'll hang on to my freely recordable inferior service so I can see new episodes of the 5 or 6 shows I watch as they air. But I leave any serious watching, and HD content to optical media.

I sure as hell wasn't offered a choice.

I looked around; apparently there are no analogue cable providers left in Toronto (all those who have analogue have been "grandfathered" in --they got their cable hookups before the changeover).

Man, that was pretty sweet.

Azula may be a bitch, but she's really cunning. Can't wait to see the Cumbustion Man next episode.

I'd say my only disappointment was Ozai's face. All that shrouding for two seasons only for it to be so...normal.

Also, the chibi short was pretty funny. I love those things. Finally got to hear a bit more of Greg Baldwin's Iroh, and it really is very spot-on.

EDIT: Also, I was surprised how important the comics in the nick Magazine special were. Basically everything that was covered in Sokka's exposition was in the comics but in greater detail. Glad I read them.

The 'normal', even friendly features just makes his ruthlessness that much more creepy.

Might as well. No sense in making a new one.


I recently decided to spring for the Season 1 box set. I'd been putting it off sense, hell, it's $50 bucks. This is actually the first time I'd watched the episodes in proper order, or some of them even completely. I'm appreciating the series even more, now.

My favorite character to come out of the show is definately Sokka. In so many shows, the "weakest" character is always made into worthless comic relief. And while Sokka is the comic relief, he's by no means worthless. He sorta starts out that way, but gradually proves himself a vital component without bending powers.

I kinda wish they'd let him kick a little more ass, though.

wow.

We're all in the fire nation now. cool.

things this episode made very clear.

Zuko knows the Avatar is Alive, Azula Knows that Zuko Knows, Ozi is being played royally by both his kids. Tof Is Hardcore awesome. Ang and Katara are SOOO an item. And somewhere a boat of fire nation navy knows an attack is coming.

things left open.

Sukki and the keoshi warriors? IROH? Earth king and Bosco go a wandering off...


some things to think on. How can Zuko twist Azula's plan to his advantage?
She has set him up for a drastic fall...thinking that if the avatar is alive..he'd quickly make himself known... Aang apparently has no plans of doing that (anymore) ... so Zuko has some room to manuver.

also... Azula needs to ware a nightshirt or something under her sleeping robe... its a kids show for pete's sake icon-arcee.gif

I basically agree with everything you said here...I loved the parallel drawn between Ang and Zuko. Zuko, who has spent so long seeking his honor, has reclaimed and and feels ill at ease, while Ang has lost his honor and is struggling with it. The symbolic burning of his staff at the end was also really awesome...and lastly, YEAH, wtf...Azula...I really wasn't expecting that.
