And a good boy

@  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.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Transformers are Buy 2 Get 1 free at Target this week.

2019 has been one long South Park episode.

@  Sjogre : (16 November 2019 - 10:46 PM)

Okay, that actually sounds pretty fun.

@  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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 10:55 AM)

In a alternate reality Peter Jackson made Son of Kong.

@  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.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 November 2019 - 02:59 AM)

Funny, but everyone knows he bounty hunts for Jabba Hutt to finance his 'Vette.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 November 2019 - 02:54 AM)

Okay.. Not sure why.. but streaming is harder than jsut playing the game.. even though that's pretty much what I was doing.

@  Xellos : (14 November 2019 - 06:47 PM)

What type of vehicle does Boba Fett use for time travel? A Man-DeLorean.

@  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.

@  Benbot : (13 November 2019 - 01:22 PM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 November 2019 - 12:51 PM)

Jim Carry Paladin?

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 November 2019 - 12:22 PM)

Don't doubt what he can do. Sonic the Hedgehog!

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 11:51 AM)

not giving a dime to a transphobic antivaxxer.

@  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."

@  ▲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)

Um... Purple Monkey Dishwasher?

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 November 2019 - 08:25 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

@  Sabrblade : (12 November 2019 - 06:59 PM)

And yet, Transformers still broke the bank at the box office, opened up the brand to a whole new generation of fans, shot the brand up to mainstream appeal, and enabled all kinds of new collector-oriented lines and other avenues to come about. Not saying Sonic's movie will do the same for his series, but the 2007 TF movie certainly did more good than harm.

The bomb, I figure. Whas not to destroy the Vajra, but to eradicate the evidence.

Also seeing how the short-haired "agent" who gave the Frontier captain the specs and the blue stone also had Grace voice and we haven't seen her change shape I don't think we've seen the last of this character.

Say, what if there simply isn't -one- Grace?


Puppet cyborg bodies. Ever since we saw her hacking we've compared her to Motoko Kusanagi of Ghost in the Shell.

Whoa we're we right on the money when she used that body double in ep 10 and her jumping in 13.

On ep 10 she wasn't even around Sheryl suspiciously.

Likely she sent her personality to a new body via fold comm.

Ep 14

Alto manages to escape Galia 4's destruction. Uses LAI fold booster to get back to Frontier.

Elmo is missing the star of the concert.

Nanase worried about Ranka, Luca is her only support here. He almost confesses when the Vajra arrive.

Mikhails VF-25 manages to snag a ride from a capital ship but he hit his head and unconscious.

Sheryl wakes up and flies the Valkyrie away from the Vajra but she is being chased.

NUNS and SMS scramble, shelldown for all of Frontiers islands with a full barrier.

VF-171 elite Diamond Squadron show that the NUNS are wusses as Ozma and Bobby would say.(Like M7 Diamond Force?)

Sheryl gets shot down and ejects. Luca tries to assist but is outmatched.

Alto suddenly Alto arrives to save three of them.

Alto asks about Ranka. Sheryl doesn't know where she is.

In fold space Ranka awakes and the Queen Vajra shown her the battle.

Alto and Luca bring Sheryl and Mikhail back at the transformed Quarter.

Then the Vajra mothership defolds at Frontier's flank.

Frontier is pined in a pincer.

Leon convinces Pres. Glass to take out the Reaction Weapons.

When Quarter is about to engage the mothership Alto says Ranka is in it.

Wilder orders Alto to fly there with an armored pack with reaction missles.

SMS covers Alto. Ozma warns Alto if doesn't save Ranka he'll kill him.

An image of Ranka's sings Aimo to her to calm her down.

Reaction missles take out Vajra capitals.

Ranka sings Aimo for a moment stops the Vajra from attacking.

Red haired pixie gets killed. Luca gets hit. (Almost a death flag tsk!)

Which enrages Alto as he goes in GAR mode blowing a hole in the mother ship.

Which Brera beats him to the punch to Ranka.

Alto kills the Queen with Ranka's cries not to is not heard.

When they got out Brera identifies himself as Major Brera Stern of Macross Galaxy NUNS.

Macross Quarter destroys the mothership.

While the rest of the NUNS VF-171s destroys the Vajra and capital ships with reaction weapons.

Grace awakes in her new body.

comments:

Am I the only one thinking that Ranka's singing to the Zentradi and Vajra and them being blown up regardless is analogous Basara's frustration of anybody not listening in M7?

Dammit the tomboy got kiiled. Well there's a opening for Pixie Squadron if Sheryl wants to join. The Galactic Fairy of the Pixie Squadron.


Next Ep:

With the next Sheryl "Concert" does seem reminicent of Sharon Apple.

Grace being an AI compounds it. Having Sheryl confined in the hospital too while at it.

It wouldn't surprise me if the people of Galaxy is hypnotize and under control by Grace.

Sheryl will be the wrench in Grace's plan much like Myung was to Sharon Apple.

An interesting thing on Ranka's mom voiced by Maaya Sakamoto is named Ranshe Mei.

Ran(ka)She(ryl)

Given that Ranshe looks like a green haired Sheryl could they be sisters?

Both are orphans, both have crystals (Ranka inside her, Sheryl her earings), both have a enigmatic mother.

Oh yeah the hot blooded pilot of the PPB Punch NUNS Diamond Squadron VF-171 is named Machida. (Says so on his VF's head)

Who I believe we saw kissing his girlfriend when Nanase and Luca were talking.

THANK YOU! I'm now caught up!!! icon-fire.gif icon-fire.gif

Those were good quality subs. Not as good as Shinsen, but perfectly good enough to keep me up to date with the story. I'm still going to get the Shinsen subs because they also translate the songs which at first I didn't really care about, but now that I've had a taste, is something I can't do without. The music in the series has been fantastic so far, and Aimo is my personal favorite. It reminds me a lot of Voices from Macross Plus which is also a favorite of mine.

The only thing I hate about Macross Frontier is how much I want to see the next episode after viewing the last. These last few episodes inparticular have had a very fast and exciting pace.

Episode 15: Lost Peace (Galaxy Annonymous or GraceChan)

Recap ep like the Global Report but by Grace and her Galaxy Anonymous collective.
Grace isn't just one individual personality but 5. Grace laughs as her original home Global was destroyed.

Apparently Galaxy Anonymous intentionally led the Vajra to Frontier. Operation Carnival which uses Sheryl Nome codenamed Fairy 9 for their goals. Grace and Galaxy Anonynous determines Sheryl aka Fairy 9 as a failure, to be disposed of, and plan on using the recently discovered codename Q1 or Ranka. Only 78% of their plans goals were met. 28% uncertainty due to underestimating SMS and the YF-24 derived VF-25 and Ranka.
And Mr. Richard Bilrer the owner of SMS is apparently on to their little scheme throwing wreches in their plans.

The other half is the Sheryl/Ranka song battle duet for Alto with "What about my star" song. Gloves are all off if Ranka's belly glows Sheryl's earing twinkles when she is about to make a super move.

Lol at Alto is like a cornered prey. Two girls pseudo confessing to him making him stressed out on the CHOICE.

Unfortunately Sheryl is still sick her duet with Ranka ended. Then these government guys come to escort Ranka for Leon. Alto gets a call to meet his boss Mr. Bilrer.

Ozma and Cathy begin to suspect Leon is unto something dirty.

Leon recruits Ranka for special project against the Vajra with Grace as project head and Brera as bodyguard.

It seems they are going to make Sound Force or Jamming Bird unit operation with Ranka.

Alto reaches Mr. Bilrer's mansion and is greeted by a Akiba worthy maid. Alto then meets the giant Zentradi old man Mr. Bilrer who is a train otaku. Oh yes Alto is promoted but next ep is likely about their talk.

Grace through Brera could not penetrate Bilrer's electronic anti-spying security.

Galaxy Anonymous wonders why Bilrer wants to talk to Alto. But they acknowledge that Alto is now in the thick of it due to his relationship with both their tools Sheryl and Ranka.

Using Ranka Galaxy Anonymous plans on surpassing the Protoculture. Achieving something that even the Protoculture could not do in their 500,000 year history.

At the end Macross Galaxy is showed unscratched within a asteroid field surrounded by it's escorts.

comments:

The gold of this ep is the song battle duet for Alto's heart. Poor Alto now he knows what the Zentradi and Protodevlin went through.

Ep 16 Ranka Attack!

Alto attacks some yellow Vajra.

Flashback to his talk with Mr. Bilrer. Bilrer asks Alto if he has a dream. Bilrer's dream is to connect the galaxy by making fold travel easier. Illustrated by trains flying in space. (Galaxy Express 999 otaku?)
A legacy for all the Protoculture's children. Humans, Zentradi, Zolan and others and perhaps Vajra. All possible with Fold Quartz. The same crystal on Bilrer's ring, Sheryl's earring and within Ranka.

Skull Squadron brings home Vajra corpses on a stick.

At Mihoshi Alto is irritated that Brera is in class. Gets a beat down by Brera. Much to Ranka's distress.

Grace the b*tch stole Ranka from Elmo. Elmo left out in the cold and depressed at Folmo Mall drinking.

Sheryl is surprise her manager is with Ranka.

Grace manipulates Ranka to sing a remix of Aimo.

Brera discusses why Ranka into it. Ranka asks how Brera knows Aimo.

When Brrera left the baby Vajra in Ranka's VF back pack showed up. Ranka named it Ai-chan.

Alto on his way to SMS finds a sick Sheryl in the park where he, Ranka and Sheryl were when the Vajra attacked the second time.

Alto brings her to the Quarter in his quarters. (Redundant isn't?)

Alto gets beat up the second time of the day by Sheryl when she woke up. A girl in a guys room? Alone? Suspicious icon-depth.gif

Alto finally notices that Sheryl has the same fold quartz as his boss. Getting a bit too close when Mikhail comes.

Mikhail tries to leave when them to their moment. Which Alto denies till Cathy goes on the monitor. Alto hides Sheryl in his bunk she so would not be seen and he in trouble.
Cathy briefs them in a operation, Ranka Attack, which shocks them. Meanwhile Ozma oniisan chews out Leon on the operation.

When the operation starts Mikhails wonders if this Minmay Attack would work.
Klan compares the Vajra to Protodevlin. Protoculture biological weapons that went wrong and pacified by Basara 14 years before.

Ranka rides Rabbit-1, the Koenig Monster that Canaria pilots. Ozma converses with Ranka and returns to his VF.

SMS Skull Squadron armed with reaction weapons is accompanied by Brera and the rest of the VF-27 Antares squadron.

Sheryl sneaks out to the bridge, bribing the security with a kiss, despite being said by Alto stay in his room.

Sheryl asks Capt. Wilder if she can observe the operation. Wilder allows her despite Cathy's protest.

SMS attacks the asteriod Vajra nest with reaction weapons forcing them out in the open while Ranka starts singing confusing their ranks.

Everyone is amazed with Ranka's ability. The president is delighted at the Vajra being destroyed. Klan say Deculture!

Grace monitors Ranka's vitals especially her emotions but it seems heart isn't into this slaughter.

One of the red Vajra starts to target Rabbit one , Alto and Brera butt heads to save Ranka.

Brera says he'll protect Ranka and Alto isn't needed.

The battle is over the bridge bunnies compare Ranka to Minmay but Bobby objects compares Ranka to Basara.

comments: Macross 7 references galore. Emotion monitors, Protodevlin, Basara.

Though if Basara was in Frontier he would object in using song as a tool of death.
