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)

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

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

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 06:46 PM)

Alright. The damages now seem to include my primary SSD. Thankfully, the gaming drive (I have now lost all my games and mods entirely.) Let me wipe it and install there. Once the crucial utility is installed again, will verify the drive.

I never thought about it that way, but back then GOT was good but then things went downhill rapidly thanks to HBO giving into the wims of the showrunners and that never should of happened as people begun setting a standard for these types of shows. My standard for this He-man is going to be low, mainly due to the fact they are saying its carrying on the story of the original cartoon and as I recall, there was no real plot beyond single eps, then I wasn't a serious fan and I didn't know about things called shedules as I was just a kid! Personally, I think they are betting on the wrong horse with this project if they are planning to make it a contuination of the original series, if Mattel were smart, they would of said no to contuining on from the original and instead opt for the smarter route, called reboot, start new with a clean slate, maybe adopt the desgins of the 80s thou honestly that armour He-man wears has got to go, its so out of fashion! For the whole Adam is He-man, they should make use of what the last Cartoon did, show Adam as someone who not physically strong until he under goes the transformation into He-man!

Here's what I'm expecting:

Story and writing will be on par with GI Joe Resolute...meaning it will vaguely connect to "what you vaguely remember" from the old cartoon and comics.  So in GI joe's case, Duke and Scarlett were the pair, Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow were the rivals, and Cobra Commander was a  ruthless terrorist leader.  But for all its faults, fans DID get some great action sequences (the kind we would never see on a kids cartoon) and a menagerie of great character and vehicle designs for both sides.

 

At the very least, because they're using the same production studio as Castlevania, we'll at LEAST get better animation than the garbage we got for the Prime Wars Trilogy.

 

 

Meaning it will be hailed by vocal sections of the fandom as the greatest thing ever to be made for the franchise...regardless how mindless and hollow it actually ends up being.

That would be the most hoped for outcome yeah. :) Much like the upcoming Netflix WFC series.

Now we wait for more images and a teaser. And an idea of the voice talent they're going to get for this.

I got the feeling it won't be able to come close to fitting into those Shorts, I expect massive egos to be making up much of the baggage! Only time will tell!

Erika Scheimer, who voiced various characters on 80s He-Man and She-Ra, said in an interview that she felt comfortable working at Filmation as a lesbian and added, "Filmation was one of the gayest places in town."

 

What I'm trying to say is they should make the cartoon "in the spirit of the original one!!!" by having an ton of LGBT characters.

Nah, I meant LGBT characters as legit characters, not punchlines.  (Man-E-Faces x Ram-Man.  Ship name: MannyxRammy.  Which by the way are nicknames they already have for each other in the episode that is already super shippy.)

 

As it happens, I've been binge watching a lot of 80s He-Man lately and I agree that a lot of the fanboys do not remember what it's like if they think episodes with intense fight scenes are in the spirit of the original.   For being centered around barbarian muscle-men, He-Man is a very gentle show.  (G1 Transformers exists in a much harsher universe.)

 

I was watching an episode where He-Man is faced with a huge demon.  He defeated it by sternly lecturing it, then becoming friends with it.

Oh yes, He-Man definitely operates/should operate along the same lines of a well-written Superman - Exhaust all other options before going to the punching. He is the best at punching, and he will definitely win if he goes for that, but that doesn't mean that he likes it.
