@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Can it raise the dead?

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Cheddar can do just about anything.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

With my mouth, usually.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

Is it because of lack of demand, lack of people being able to log on and buy it, or people just dropping the line all together, increased production?

Probably increased production and the fact that he's included in the subscriptions, not as many people are running to the site at noon to buy him.

I'm dropping this line wholesale once my subscription runs out at the end of the year.

My list of reasons is long-ish, but off the top of my head, and in no particular order:

1) QC issues (What up, Roboto & King Hssss?)

2) Matty/DR no longer using UPS for delivery of merchandise for subscribers after this year.

3) Running out of characters I have even a modicum of interest owning as figure(s)

4) Mattel's playing fast & loose with the subscription "rules".

When I buy a subscription alledging that I will be getting "ALL" figs. that are not reissues but then you change it to not include She-Ra 2.0, well, you aren't going to win any points with me.

5) DR's phone reps basically not understanding a lick of English.

As I like to say, they speak it but they don't understand it, IYKWIM.

Apparently I'm way behind because at Wondercon they announced Leech (who looks awesome) and Hurricane Hordak. Hordak will supposedly have vac-metal armor (the figure looks very uninteresting to me). Leech definitely has some 2002 influence in him.

I don't know how to feel about Hurricane Hordak.

On the one hand he was the Hordak we had as kids, so I have NOSTALGIA.

On the other hand I never liked him as a kid because I always thought that spinner army made him look really dumb.

I'll definetly be buying the Swamp Thing, Voltron, and Queen Marlena & Cringer at the show. Kilowog is a maybe.

I'd like the Stay-Puft GB exclusive but like HTS's Galactus last year and this year's Death Star 12-pack and MU Sentinel I think it is size prohibitive as far as shipping it back to N.Y. Plus the price isn't exactly low at $70.00USD.

I might buy the Polly Pocket/She-Ra 3-pack depending on price and size.

As a lapsed Barbie doll collector I'll be skipping the Carol Ferris/Barbie doll.

I'll have to see what else they have in store but I'm actually more excited for the Voltron and Swamp Thing figs. than I am for the MOTUC item(s) at this point.

I'll also be buying the Franken Berry Hot Wheels and possibly the BTTF one as well, depending on size.

At $35.00USD I'm going to assume it is larger than a regular Hot Wheels vehicle.

I mean Franken Berry is only $20.00 and that comes in "premium" packaging so one has to wonder what makes the BTTF item $15.00 more.

Cringer looks fine to me. Then again I'm not a modern MotU collector. (would be if they were in stores...) I LOVE thd idea of doing The queen as both Queen and Flash Gordon Astronaut. That was inspired.

Voltron really doesn't impress me. I want to like him because I like Voltron but its too simple looking and primary colored for me. Bandai is looking ok with Thundercats but Mattel has yet to show me the Voltron.


ZacWilliam, is it wrong that the POP Doll set looks coolest?

Hum.

I'll probably get Marlena and Cringer. Superboy in cloning chamber looks cool, although I don't really collect that line.

I'll get Voltron because i'm a huge Voltron whore, but I agree with Zac in that the simplicity and lack of detailing is a turn-off.

I'm disappointed in the lack of articulation in the GL Movie Masters figures as compared to regular DCUC ones. I'm also a bit nervous about Swamp Thing's "internal skeleton" and how that will limit articulation. I might get ST.

So far though, there's nothing i'm seeing that's really lighting my fire.

It really reminds me of the Robot Chicken Voltron from their first season "You got Served" dance-off bit. It wouldn't be surprising considering they've already established that relationship but maybe they decided to downplay it a bit.

I think Cringer looks perfect honestly after all, he did grow quite a bit when he became Battle Cat. I'm also glad the Matty Collector version of Marlena comes in her space helmet outfit vs the dress.
