You don't even hear a hint of an accent, and she only very rarely chooses some odd wording where she probably wasn't familiar with the more appropriate alternative due to its relative obscurity.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:41 AM)

Just watched what's possibly the most relaxed interview ever of a German Youtuber interviewing Zazie while walking around Berlin. Turns out she was born in Berlin and spent quite some time in Germany.

It's too bad it's like this because some of what they're doing with tiny cars is pretty cool, but I'm not willing to sign up for that f-ing hassle.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:13 PM)

At this point I'm trying to decide how much of a markup I'm willing to pay some scalper scum or if I should just say to hell with it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 September 2019 - 02:11 PM)

That is pretty much the constant story with Hot Wheels. Anything you might actually want has most likely been picked clean and marked up.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:02 PM)

I've been watching some Youtube Hot Wheels videos out of boredom and discovered there exists a new car that just came out maybe a month ago that looks just like one I had when I was little, and I've been looking around hoping to get it. Slim picking everywhere, but online there are a slew of sellers asking for 3 and 4x the retail price, plus a hefty shipping markup.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 01:59 PM)

Oh, that explains the problem I've encountered with finding one little car

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 September 2019 - 01:31 PM)

Oh boy. I work at Target, and literally every single morning, there are two or three guys outside who make a beeline straight to the Hot Wheels.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 September 2019 - 09:55 PM)

I've never read the source material and don't know much about it, but I enjoyed the first film quite a bit, and found the second alright

@  Sabrblade : (17 September 2019 - 09:49 PM)

The first movie was definitely not for me. I flat out hated it. Didn't even bother with the sequel.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2019 - 05:02 PM)

I liked the first movie a lot and enjoyed the original volume of the book, and the way they were developed in parallel was really interesting. It all got super extra unpleasant as soon as they went back though. I don't remember really whether the initial sequels are "good" or not, but either way both the second movie and the second run of the book quickly demonstrated that the property sure wasn't for me.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i have a real hard time offering praise of anything connected to an utter shitstain like Mark Millar.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2019 - 01:23 PM)

Kick Ass 2 was okay for what it was, a sequel to a film that was okay, just okay. It had a good performance from Nic Cage while the sequel had Jim Carrey who decided he didn't want to promote it after one of america's regularly scheduled massacres.

@  Benbot : (17 September 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Was Kick Ass 2 really that bad? I never got around to seeing it, but after watching the first movie again the other day, I'm thinking about it.

If you owe, you're expected to actually pay it at the time you file, before they even process your return

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 September 2019 - 11:10 PM)

If you file electronically, I find you usually get your refund within a couple weeks

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Well, lucky it took less than two months for me. For a little over 200 Euros.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Pretty much, yeah. Canada revenue will be all up your ass if you earn less than 200K and owe tax, but your refund is basically "duke nukem forever".

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Whereas if you overpaid and they have to refund you, they will take their sweet time to let you know.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Like, here in Germany, if the tax authority responds to your tax report quickly, you can rest assured they want more money.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Do tax authorities in other countries base their time to respond to filed tax reports on whether they owe or are owed as well?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 11:13 AM)

Check what the requirements are for your cad program, and try to beat them by about 20%, and understand that software requirements have been stable for a few years: not really keeping up with the advancements in hardware. Unless you're doing something SPECIFIC which requires ludicrous amounts of power, just give your self a cushion on hardware and don't bother going whole hog.

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 10:16 AM)

What I'm currently using is an i5 2018 Surface Laptop. My current desktop is all but dead. I think in the end affordability will win out over specs. I need to use CAD programs, but I'm a student, not a professional.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 10:06 AM)

Okay. Whats the specs on the I7 and what are you currently using?

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 09:23 AM)

fun and games

@  wonko the sane? : (09 September 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Depends entirely on what you use the computer for.

@  Steevy Maximus : (09 September 2019 - 11:52 AM)

Probably not

@  Benbot : (09 September 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Shouldn't be. I literally just built it. Not even three weeks ago even.

Well we know now that Matty Collector is gone and He-Man is moving over to Super 7 completely. What this will mean? More MOTUSCLE and 3.75 figures we already know about. But a few days ago we saw this:

http://www.he-man.or...cle.php?id=5668

It definitely looks like Super 7 might bring back original style MOTU. I hope so, I think that might be both a lot of fun and cheaper than MOTUC.

Waits eagerly to see...


-ZacWilliam, would buy the Skelator in these pics if the price were good...

I hate to be a downer, but man, if MOTUC is done and that is what is being made, I'm out.  I have zero interest in retro/reissue MOTU figures.  I did not buy them the last time they were offered and I won't buy them now.

I said it in the Thundercats thread too, but Super7 has never shown they have the resources to manufacture anything of the level we've come to expect from the MOTUC line. Reissues of vintage figures and crappy 5POA ReAction type stuff is about their limit. This sucks since I was hoping for a continuation of the Filmation line. Unless part of the deal is access to 4 Horsemen sculpts and Mattel factories, I'm definitely done.

I'd prefer retro stuff to Classics and less pricey to $30+ figs. I'm up for what they do.

-ZacWilliam, Classics already covered everything it needed to anyway. It was well ready to be done.

If MOTUC is done, then I have no purpose for all these figures.

 

I would have liked a Hoove and a mini-comic Tri-Klops before they called it quits.

I'm pretty sure Super7 COULD continue with the Classics line, the question will be how much will the price go up and how expansive their offerings will be.  The days of a dozen plus figures per year are over, but I think S7 could use fan feedback to feel out a handful of releases going forward.

 

But, the bigger issue will be how much draw will MOTUC have in that format.  Mattel has firmly covered a massive swath of the franchise, and we're pretty much scrapping the barrel in terms of cost effective new figures.  We've pretty much known that Mattel was leveraging certain "core" characters to justify a sub to get a lot more of the obscure stuff out there, to diminishing returns.  SOME fans want Hoove, but are there enough to justify it?

I don't know.

 

That said, I'm curious to see what Super7 does with a more expansive leash for the brand.

I fully expect 2017 to heavily feature the wildly popular Filmation-inspired figures.

https://en.wikipedia...of_Cannon_Films

 

Finally got around to watching it this morning. 

 

In addition to being a documentary about the rise and fall of Cannon Films, the documentary crew behind it specifically highlight several movies or movie franchises that they feel were of particular note. 

 

As part of it, the live-action "Masters of the Universe" film is discussed, with a focus on how Cannon's financial troubles affected the overall film. They even managed to get Dolph Lundgren himself to speak about the film. And as a bonus, one of the theatrical trailers for the movie is available as part of an assortment of Cannon trailers. 

 

However, because such a large percentage of Cannon's output contained graphic sex and violence, the documentary has an "R" rating by virtue of using some of that footage, and some of the trailers they have are what would be circulated as "red band" trailers today. 

 

I found my copy in a $5 bin at the local Wal-Mart, so if nothing else the thing's at least cheap if you do decide to see it.
