And Ginrai aka "Magnus Prime, Metalhawk, "Liokaiser", etc. The real characters that Warden actually doesn't know about are the late EuroUK characters like the Turbomasters/Predators

@  Sabrblade : (21 November 2019 - 11:06 AM)

Warden and Friends did give us a Lione (Sawback) and a Shuffler

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2019 - 07:26 AM)

Or prominently featured in IDW, or an easy repaint of an existing toy.

@  Paladin : (21 November 2019 - 07:12 AM)

was she in the first 3 seasons of the cartoon? If not then she's on no one's list because they don't think she exists.

@  Cyoti : (20 November 2019 - 11:23 PM)

It's probably stuck on the low priority end of Warden's to-do list.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 November 2019 - 10:45 PM)

Because the only full-body Nightbeat was that Bumblebee with a new head one.

@  Bass X0 : (20 November 2019 - 04:14 PM)

Why has there been no new Minerva toys? I’m surprised at Takara. The Titan Master head doesn’t count.

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 November 2019 - 01:05 PM)

On my shelf I have Ginrai donning the Star Convoy armor.

@  Liege : (19 November 2019 - 07:42 AM)

@  Benbot : (18 November 2019 - 04:01 PM)

@  Liege : (18 November 2019 - 09:19 AM)

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.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2019 - 08:26 PM)

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

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 November 2019 - 04:43 PM)

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

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2019 - 01:01 PM)

In the U.K., it’s more like you but two, you only get one given how expensive they are.

@  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.

@  Paladin : (15 November 2019 - 11:37 AM)

and it was ALSO eleven hours long.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 November 2019 - 09:30 AM)

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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2019 - 06:54 AM)

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.

@  Ashley : (13 November 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I think Ace Ventura legit contributed to me spending years in self denial. I will never be ok with Jim Carrey.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 11:25 AM)

It'll be a terrible movie if jim carrey phones it in. Otherwise it should be decent.

@  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."

I knew I forgot something!

Aang has totally killed people before. In the avatar-state he killed Commander Zhao at the end of season 1.


Actually that was the Ocean Spirit, acting entirely on its own, after having separated itself from Aang. It drops him off before going after Zhao.

Although, it does seem kinda unlikely that no one died when they were still merged and taking out the Fire Navy fleet...

Anyone who thinks Azula didn't get what's coming to her and needed to see her in jail, think about what was happening to her just before she took on Zuko.

Ironbite-she was beaten well before that Agni Kai.

I mentioned over on another forum that despite enjoying the series, the ending with Aang and Ozai was kind of cheesy and deus ex machina. HIGHLIGHT to view:
pulling the avatar state out again, which I thought he couldn't do again. and then the hero comeback with the auras and the lion-turtle dialog that was completely new. ok. unbendable spirit. gotcha. ("unblock my chakra by some normally complex mental and spiritual process. right, done.")


He was never unable to use the Avatar State, it's just that he didn't want to use it because if he died in Avatar State there would be no more Avatars.

No. As Aang explained in "The Day of Black Sun," when Azula shot him with lightning at the end of season two, his seventh chakra was blocked, and he couldn't go into the Avatar State anymore. It got unblocked during the fight with Ozai when the wound from the lightning bolt was pierced.

Plus at least from my point of view it was clear before "Day of Black Sun" that Aang had lost the ability to enter the Avatar State. That was one of two ways to take the sequence at the end of season 2; either he had lost the Avatar State by losing the spiritual connection to all the previous Avatars, or he had died and the cycle was broken.

On Friday, I went to see The Dark Knight, which was pure excitement in itself. Then on Saturday, I watched the Avatar series finale.

Talk about "over stimulated". I don't think I'm going to sleep again for a week; I still haven't calmed down.

The entire score was wonderful, and that was the most amazing part of it. Instead of Awesome Fight Scene Music, it was something haunting and sad. Because they're brother and sister and they're trying to kill each other, and its a tragedy.

Good crap, I never even thought of that. The Dark Knight hasn't come out over here yet - I've still got that ahead of me! I'll be all, like, just about nearly calmed down after Avatar, and then WHAM!

Speaking of this, the Track Team -- the guys who did all the music in Avatar -- have added three tracks from the finale score to their MySpace page, including that one.

Exactly, it was very fitting. The whole situation made you feel sorry for Azula and dislike the Phoenix King even more for setting that type of situation up, however unintentional it was.

Indeed. The way in which they successfully rendered Azula as a sympathetic figure, not as an evil monster but just an incredibly damaged child, was amazing, and really the biggest surprise about the finale to me.

The Avatar panel had a huge lack of new information, aside from the fact that the finale director had actually scripted Zuko seeing his mother before Michael Dimartino killed it. Future stuff was not really confirmed one way or another.

That was a joke epilogue the creators showed at... some convention a while back. Forget which one.
