My point is that of late, Taiwan's government executed lockdown procedures to great success. Vietnam has done similarly.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (05 April 2020 - 03:34 PM)

Didn't SARS just suddenly stop before it got very far?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 April 2020 - 03:24 PM)

*raises eyebrows due to familial knowledge of SARS*

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:43 PM)

It was uncomfortably real in 2011, it's downright scary in relation to the current pandemic.

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:42 PM)

It is, almost to an uncomfortable point.The virus portrayed in that film was FAR more aggressive and fatal than Coronavirus, but the sourcing and spread and impact hit REALLY close to home compared to what we're dealing with now

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 04:50 AM)

Actually on the subject, I've hard a lot of people refer to a 2011 film called Contagion that they think is relevant.

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Ah well, I'll stick to the classic British sitcoms: One Foot in the Grave, Til Death Do Us Part and They Think It's All Over.

@  TM2-Megatron : (05 April 2020 - 12:53 AM)

There's always the original, cheesy as it is

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (05 April 2020 - 12:10 AM)

Dunno... Tonight one of the major networks showed a movie with plagues.. including that listening to their leader causes the first born to die. ;P So nah.. I think the Stand could work. :D

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 April 2020 - 09:18 PM)

That's probably the last thing anyone needs to see, at the moment. Maybe when we get to the end of June/beginning of July and we can venture back out, it might be possible to find some enjoyment in The Stand.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 April 2020 - 02:08 PM)

I suppose the CBS adaptation of Stephen Kings The Stand will be delayed.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It arrived! Yay!

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Given how the virus lasts about 3-4 days on metals and plastics, it's about the only way to go about getting stuff right now. I ordered a monitor mount for my desk and the delivery has been pushed back twice already.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 11:04 AM)

He ordered it online, says it was to keep those delivery boys in business. I did the same a week ago with some Transformers Studio Series figures off Kapow. Don't know if it's wise or not considering.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 09:12 AM)

You'd be the first. Everyone else has either been frustrated cause the one they wanted was sold out (like during boxing week.) or rushing to replace something broken.

@  RYNO : (03 April 2020 - 08:53 AM)

I actually walked into a store the other day and just randomly decided to buy at 32inch TV. It was just a Vizio, and grabbed a Mounting Bracket for it. No duress. Just a spur of the moment wanted a TV for my master bedroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:31 AM)

Conversely: I've never met a person who wasn't buying a TV under duress... so... yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:20 AM)

I think I've met maybe two people other than myself who count cables before buying a TV.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 April 2020 - 05:33 AM)

Seriously.. HDMI splitters and switches are so bloody finicky, but most tvs don't have enough inputs.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 05:09 AM)

Just spent a hour trying to get my brothers new Samsung TV to read his Playstation and Blu Ray player only to find he was using a HDMI splitter.

@  Sabrblade : (01 April 2020 - 08:58 PM)

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

Speaking of the GN-X, Samuel Decal is selling a purple LED unit for those of you who own the MG.

Looks worthwhile to me.

Huh? There's no such thing as a purple LED.

Not really accurate, anyways. IIRC, the chest condensers were never shown illuminated (and the MG certainly doesn't have any text in the chest, unlike the Exia), and the drive cone should be red like all the other GN[Tau] Drives.

Just sayin' icon-waspy.gif.

For purple glows, it's usually a paired red and blue LED. But given the small space involved in the Gundam lighting units, I'm surprised the pair could actually be crammed in that space properly.

The other issue there is that blue LEDs are so much more intense than red ones, the light usually doesn't blend well, with the blue simply overpowering the red (and I think those high-end model Lightsabers, specifically Mace Windu's, used a diffuser screen of somesort to blend the LED lights as well). So I'm rather curious about the electronics setup in those, if the guy actually managed to cram a resistor in there as well or something.

I've got a red unit from my Trans-Am Exia to give to my GN-X, so I'm cool on that front.

D'oh, speaking of Trans-Am Gundams, I totally forgot to pre-order the MG Trans-Am Raiser. Being a web-shop exclusive, of course the after-market prices are insane.

Luckily, BBTS still has a pre-order open, so at least I'm paying $160 for it (at a maybe ~$30 markup), and not $300 off of eBay...

So during the summer riots, a major Sony warehouse that stored various CDs and DVDs got torched. Beez's stock was in there and the result is there are now no more copies of Gundam Wing Remastered Part 1. Bad news for me, a guy who as I've said has finally been getting around to buying the UK complete collections. But the real sting? People have started putting copies on ebay for prices like ?225.

Class act, guys. Fans are being denied copies thanks to looters who grabbed what they wanted and then set fire to everything else. Your gross profiting from this is much the same.

From what a friend told me, they're likely true. Bandai released an image of a Zedas trading card and forgot to blur the text for a few hours. Fans translated it and it includes various info, including the apparent pilot.

Personally, am I the only one getting tired of the way GG does things? Between posting spoilers with little warning, dedicating huge posts to custom jobs he likes and now the uneeded unboxing videos, I'm really missing the likes of Gunota Headlines and Ngee Khiong.

I'm sorry? As far as I'm concerned, Yurin has always made me think of Hinata. The fact that I haven't associated her with a character/show I've never even heard of isn't a 'slow uptake'. We don't all spend our time trying to find counterparts like the Tohou fandom do.

I didn't think I was being rude, but if it came off that way I apologize.

However Working!! is a currently-airing show in its' second season and is insanely popular as well, and Yamada looks way more like Yurin then Hinata does.

Fanart reflects this, which is what I was pointing out.

It's understandable that the western fandom would compare her to Hinata due to lack of exposition to loli chinese dress girls in anime, also the hime cut.

But yeah, it's pretty much a running joke on /a/ to post a picture that's ambiguously Yamada or Yurin and say 'Best girl of the season.'

It's fine, it's just ... not everyone keeps up with everything at all times, especially those things that run along genres they're not interested in. As HellCat pointed out, he's never even heard of the show before, and while I know of it by name I couldn't be asked to recognize a single character or element from it. I imagine you'll find the same thing applies to a lot of folks. icon-waspy.gif

Not everyone hangs around /a/ or whichever to know this, either. Some, myself included, actively avoid it. icon-waspy.gif

AGE is doing quite well in ratings and home media pre-orders. Apparently AGE's lowest rating so far was still higher then any for Geass R2.

However, there's a snag- apparently, it isn't kids watching.

Not sure how they compile this stuff but apparently it's older fans watching and kids are barely interested. One anecdotal remark I've heard claims more women over 50 are watching then 12 year old boys. There are also reports shops are discounting the toys/kits because they simply aren't moving.

The following are alleged figures for the problem
Gundam shows (average viewership by kids under 12) -
Gundam Seed - 6.36%
SD Gundam Force - 4.50%
Gundam Seed Destiny - 4.14%
Gundam 00 - 2.33%
Gundam 00 Second Season - 2.06%
SD Gundam Sangokudan - 5.26%
Gundam AGE - 1.30%

In more direct news, we've started getting word on the phase 2 stuff including AGE-2 Normal. So, was that leak a while back right or complete nonsense?
HIGHLIGHT to view:

Turns out it was in fact legit. There's been some work done but this is basically what we saw a while back, basically crossing AGE-1 mildly with 00 Raiser and Gundam Sefer Rasiel.

We also have a look at a new unit called the Adele, which is basically a Genoace with improvements take from the AGE-1 such as the shield.
