Don't frustrate yourself OR her for it. Just keep the camera ready and if it happens, it happens.

@  Ashley : (23 October 2019 - 12:15 AM)

I'll probably try waving treats in front of her and whistling it, see if I can encourage it

@  Ashley : (23 October 2019 - 12:14 AM)

I'll try. She's not the most obedient bird, so it's going to take some work to get her to do it on demand.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 October 2019 - 10:03 PM)

In fact; we demand video.

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Yeah, I think both are too old and too expensive at this stage. Hasbro/Paramount are going to try for younger actors that can do multiple films AND can be locked into a multifilm contract cheaply

@  Paladin : (22 October 2019 - 06:05 PM)

so he'd probably be sixty by the time they get to another GI Joe project.

@  Patch : (22 October 2019 - 06:04 PM)

According to Wikipedia he's 51.

@  Paladin : (22 October 2019 - 05:38 PM)

isn't Crews like sixty now???

@  wonko the sane? : (22 October 2019 - 02:11 PM)

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:59 PM)

I've barely used them over the years, so I'm sure they won't miss me, but I'm done too. Thankfully Pulse put up the Seacons today.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:58 PM)

i didnt complete it, which is why this is confusing and pi$$ing me off. theres no record of it in my order history. i emailed them about it, so we will see what happens. either way, i think im done using them after this

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

Either we're both unlucky or they're trying to force payment now for these takaratomy mall exclusives.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I asked them to kindly undo that and I got a sternly worded email about how I should use their website right.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

Yeah, if you completed the order, they charged you the money now. Mine said stack before I finished checking out. I only noticed I was charged because of Paypal.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:53 PM)

i wasnt even wanting to pay now. i was going to add them to my stack but i didnt get the chance after i was done setting up paypal

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:53 PM)

If you haven't officially placed the order, I don't think so? Although, I had to request a cancellation with them last week because their system changed details about my order after I placed it, so I don't exactly trust them.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:51 PM)

so im not actually being charged then?

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:48 PM)

So, if you were one click away from purchasing, then they probably did the pre-authorization already. The next click will charge you the money now.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:47 PM)

TFsource charges upfront for regular pre-orders.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i was considering buying the upcoming seacons from tfsource. i had them in my cart and was on the checkout page. i set up a credit card through paypal, and before i even hit the "place order" button, i got a text saying that a charge or hold was placed on my card! is this normal? is it just checking to see if i have the money? why did it do it before i even placed the order??

So whenever he addresses his troops, he keeps cracking jokes. Sometimes these jokes are about the blunders he himself had made in his speech the previous day.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 01:01 PM)

At the moment, I'm blessed with a pretty nice superior. He's got a military background, but he takes an oddly entertaining approach to it. Imagine a stand-up comedian who accidentally enlisted as a drill sergeant.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:54 PM)

Another type of everyday absurdity: Imagine you're leaving your workplace for your lunchbreak. Upon your return, you discover that your workplace has been cordened and/or gated off during your break, with "construction site" warning signs everywhere. You go to your superior and tell him: "I can no longer access my workplace! Why is there suddenly a construction site?" Your superior takes a surpised look and says: "I don't know, first time I see this." You figure: "Must be a Tuesday, then."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:51 PM)

It's kind of surreal, really.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:50 PM)

They agree that things are less than ideal, but they acknowledge that their scope of making decisions is limited. Oddly, I keep getting that regardless of how high up the chain of command I bother people.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:49 PM)

"I hear you, but you know how it is, there's nothing I can do about it." That's it, basically.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 October 2019 - 06:40 AM)

What's it like to have management that's willing to listen to things they don't want to hear? I've never seen that.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:41 AM)

I manage to argue within the company's own internal logic and point out the flaws, shortcomings and discrepancies between "official company policy" and "everyday company reality".

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:40 AM)

Many of my coworkers are scared to even talk to managers. I often discuss company matters with them I disagree with, and it isn't a rare occurrence that they say "yeah, you're right..."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:38 AM)

I know how to watch my tone, and I prefer to keep things straightforward and factual, never to attack the person, always the problem itself.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:37 AM)

The good thing for me is ever since a minor hiccup many years ago when I was still non-permanent, I've always managed to along just fine with my various superiors (I've been through over a dozen already). And that's despite my outspokenness, my blunt honesty and my oftentimes harsh criticism.

Amazon in the US has pretty good benefits, though, and even the temp workers had forty hours a week to start with. Even with minimum wage, that's pretty good pay.

Working on a few things.

 

Picked up a GM/GM at comic con. I was let down by GM's Counterattack but the GM/GM has a really dynamic look to it and I like you're encouraged to customise it. Technically you can do that with all kits but I like when we're invited to. They also had the GBN Guard Frame and GBN Gundam which are apparently based off of this but I've never really done a kit of the UC GM so went for this. I do like this has kicked off a trend of Bandai offering iconic grunts in intentionally customiseable form.

 

Also working on 3 Ayame bears and the main Ayame kit itself. I got lucky in that I was able to find paint the pretty much exactly matched her colour breakdown. Usually with Gunpla the paints I can get aren't close at all. Mentioned in particular how I've struggled to find the military green you'll see on grunts like Zaku, Leo and Graze.

These things have knee articulation, surprisingly enough - though they're kind of superfluous anyway since the balljoint ankles don't have enough range to get much use out of said knees. :hmm

I've been curious to pick up the BD release of Bandit Flower, but I've read elsewhere regarding the Japanese release that indicated that the song subtitles, in English, were hardsubbed into the video and thus totally non-removable:

 

https://fandompost.v...4561#post694561

 

Does anyone know if the Right Stuf BD release from earlier this year also features hardsubs for the song subtitles that are actually burnt into the video (that is, they don't disappear if you forward or reverse the video), or are they soft subtitles like the majority of anime releases?

Lineup for Micro Wars 3 is odd.

 

Dopp fighter

Ball

Char's Z'Gok

Nu Gundam

Gera Doga

 

It's such an odd line up given we've got stuff from unrelated eras and the focus of this line is army building. Why not just keep it 0079 themed and then do a 0093 lineup in a later wave?

Nu Gundam

Sazabi

Gera Doga

Gera Doga (Rezin colours)

As is a Master Grade Barbatos.

 

(Curious how Hathaway's Flash is going to go as a movie. A lot of the details don't line up with the animated stuff, and the original ending might be more of a downer than the audience would accept. )

I am expecting some changes here and there.  Hathaway's Flash is already based on the CCA novel, which has a lot of differences from the film, some which are major, like Hathaway being the one who kills Quess and that sets up the entire plot for Hathaway's Flash.

 

I wonder if Quess' ghost will even play a role in the upcoming film?

 

One thing, they are keeping the heroic colors for the Penelope, they could have given it a different set to make it stand out more from the Xi.

Still no info on any new shows huh?

Sorry to bump on this but...

Gundam The Origin (TV version) is set to air in the coming weeks.  And I think there was confirmation of a Build Divers followup coming.

 

Plus there's still the Hathaway's Flash trilogy (?), and supposedly a recut of Reconquista in G in film form is also supposed to be coming.

 

And whatever happened with that IBO mobile series/spin off thing.

This going to be cut into Episodes (like with Unicorn) or showings of the OVA?

Cuz I'd really like to be able to watch the dub on break.

Cut into episodes, dubbed when on Toonami. It's cut up much better than Unicorn, from what I hear.

That sudden title change makes me think Bandai is way too scared nowadays of failed releases outside Japan. :wtf

 

Also, it could just be the different art style, but the waifus this time around don't look as... visually unappealing as the New Gundam Breaker ones - to me, anyway. :hmm
