Big retailers just don't want money anymore, so let's not give them any,

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:12 PM)

This place is a madhouse, feels like being cloned.

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 January 2020 - 03:38 PM)

I took one step beyond the outer limits to the twilight zone.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 10:19 AM)

All retail is basically the same.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2020 - 10:00 AM)

Walmart just needs to go bankrupt already.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:19 AM)

They didn't put the 35th anniversary stuff back out until after new year. I'm no retail expert, but I feel like having stock on the shelf is better than the back. Especially toys at christmas time.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Yeah, my local walmart took away the 35th anniversary endcap weeks before Christmas and left the Transformer section empty well past Christmas.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:44 AM)

Mine only has the 35th Anniversary Voyagers. A whole lot of them.

@  Telly : (19 January 2020 - 11:35 PM)

just be happy your walmart even stocks voyagers. mine doesnt

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 January 2020 - 08:53 PM)

Figures that Walmart finally restocks Studio Voyagers...with Wave ONE

@  ThunderWear : (19 January 2020 - 09:27 AM)

I snagged Rainmakers for half off.  They make me want jolly ranchers.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 04:21 PM)

I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:23 AM)

Well there is an overpriced limited edition, but I don't want to pay that much money for it.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:21 AM)

Well great. The one Usagi Yojimbo volume I don't have and it's out of stock.

@  Rycochet : (17 January 2020 - 06:15 PM)

I both love and hate that the Alien franchise seems to have had more luck finding a niche as a line of children's toys than it has at producing worthwhile films.

@  Donocropolis : (17 January 2020 - 06:35 AM)

I've seen them on the shelves at Walmart. They're pretty great looking retro Aliens toys. https://www.walmart....-Vary/934039489

@  fourteenwings : (17 January 2020 - 01:11 AM)

IIRC somebody on here mentioned an unbranded Alien toy a couple of weeks ago? It seems like it was actually part of a collection for the Alien movie series by Lanard. Mattel's making some stuff too.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 January 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Is it really a worse name than say, HMS Spanker?

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 January 2020 - 02:36 PM)

'Boaty McBoatface' was a actual thing?! Wow.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (14 January 2020 - 02:00 PM)

Might be worth bringing back this thread.

@  ThunderWear : (14 January 2020 - 01:53 PM)

Of course I had the idea to download all the pdfs like a week too late. Anyone got an archive?

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 January 2020 - 12:48 PM)

The Collector Club is dead. Seems like it all came down shortly after New Year

@  ThunderWear : (13 January 2020 - 11:06 PM)

I can't get to the collector club website. anyone else? I was literally going to download all the fiction to finish reading.

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 January 2020 - 04:50 AM)

News today is all 'there's a CHANCE it would snow in July' and 'dogs COULD bite back'.

@  Benbot : (12 January 2020 - 10:05 PM)

Holy crap, do many people get hurt by them?

@  wonko the sane? : (12 January 2020 - 02:11 PM)

Even in fallout, they never carpet bombed with nukes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 January 2020 - 12:43 PM)

I hope the stockpiled nuclear weapons of the US and Russia are accounted for then.

@  Nevermore : (12 January 2020 - 12:22 PM)

Geez. 1760 (!) bombs from World War II that had not detonated and were still armed have been found. That's only the numbers for the federal state of Germany I live in, and only for the first three quarters of 2019. For all of 2018, the total number was 2811 (!!) bombs.

@  CVReynolds : (11 January 2020 - 11:05 PM)

I've been wanting a Tarantulas that turns into a more realistic tarantula for a long time. Maybe Takara will someday do a Masterpiece, which would be neat. But I really want to see a modernized look like in the IDW comics.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 January 2020 - 09:43 PM)

We need more Waspinators.. and rattraps.

@  Ashley : (11 January 2020 - 07:09 PM)

I'm on board with that

@  Dekafox : (11 January 2020 - 06:17 PM)

What I'm hearing is we need Cyberverse Waspinator

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 January 2020 - 01:27 AM)

He's appeared across more branding changes than Waspinator, so maybe it's more the other way around.

@  Ashley : (10 January 2020 - 12:01 AM)

is C3PO the Waspinator of Star Wars? he'll live forever, because it's funny for him to suffer

@  Sabrblade : (09 January 2020 - 11:52 PM)

He's still waiting for them to be funny.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 January 2020 - 10:35 PM)

Why?

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 04:02 PM)

I've been watching South Park, Family Guy and The Simpsons with a straight face for a decade now.

@  wonko the sane? : (09 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

If that's what it takes to get you to take the medication, sure.

@  Bass X0 : (09 January 2020 - 01:52 PM)

If I go crazy, will you still call me Superman?

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 11:37 AM)

I mean, it is easier to protect HDDs, and you can retransfer the data over and over forever?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 January 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Not in this comparison. He's making his own files, so they're (presumably) not restricted by DRM, so he can copy them as many times as he wants. It's potentially more reliable in the long term than hoping the specific copies you originally bought never accrue any damage for the rest of your life.

@  Echowarrior : (09 January 2020 - 10:44 AM)

I prefer physical copies too. Easier to protect something physical and tangible.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 09:55 AM)

I prefer having physical copies.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 January 2020 - 08:56 AM)

I have plenty of physical media I turn into digital media for my plex server. Just finished ripping Ultra Seven

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Isn't the general consensus that we're supposed to be over physical media anyways?

@  Paladin : (09 January 2020 - 08:17 AM)

i still don't own a Blu-Ray player.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 January 2020 - 07:35 AM)

My current TV works just fine. I don't see a need to upgrade. And by the time I do, the Next Big Thing will probably be out anyway.

@  Benbot : (09 January 2020 - 03:58 AM)

Me neither. I'm no rebel, though. I'm just poor.

Had a weird experience in attempting to watch it and stupidly watched episode 11 (I think) first because I am a dummy who can't read episode title links properly. I've meant to go back and fix that, though.

I did not - I was really put off by Boss' voice at the time after being used to his Mazinkaiser voice. Could probably stand to go back and check it out, though.

Uh, how does everything look samey unless you're not paying attention? (or if the things are by the same studio/character designer, i.e. Kokoro Connect and K-On) And if things do look samey, why would anybody not have had this issue in earlier years? Or with male characters?

On a related note, I started reading the original Getter Robo manga, and Ryoma's design just looks horrifyingly generic compared to his New Getter Robo appearance. Or maybe he's not so much generic-looking as he makes me have to remind myself I'm not reading about an older, muscled-up Koji Kabuto. Maybe Dynamic Planning just had some sort of unified in-house style, although I don't think it really makes sense for these two to have similar facial features like that.

Heavens, no, that's not my intention, and male protags can certainly be adorable. I said that because after I made my point, you guys recced Symphogear, which to my knowledge is some kind of mecha-themed magical girl show. (I am likely terribly wrong, but that's what I've grasped from what people have posted here and in other places.)

Perhaps clarification is needed - my annoyances are based in the cutesy stuff getting popular and the fact that it appeals to the really skeevy neckbeardy fans that I really do not want to get lumped in with. It's the same idea as not wanting to go near ponies as a guy for fear of getting associated with Bronies. Obviously not all fans are like that, but that insecurity is there.

Lemme see... I guess that insecurity is manifested into something like a combination sour grapes and jealousy mindset. Since I can't get to the shows in question (because of my own imposed ways of thinking), therefore they must be terrible and disliked. And since they're popular and keep happening, jealousy stemmed up 'cause all the decent, not-skeevy folks are getting new stuff to enjoy while I continue to be a stubborn grump and grouse because of my own stupid ill-informed opinions that spawned due to hype aversion of Haruhi Suzumiya ...seven... frickin' years ago...

...



Jive, that got introspective and I did not expect to decipher a mindset at 5AM. Pardon the epiphany, that just sort of happened while I was replying. And now I know I'm an insecure dumbass who's missed out on a lot of potentially cool stuff. Or in short, in this topic, Wingus figures out he's been a dumb jive for years and some introspection has caused his To-Watch list to expand exponentially. icon-wildride.gif

I think I wound up shoving it to the backburner as a combination of my own screw-up in trying to start it, and it was still coming out about the time I fell into Kamen Rider.

I see Cute Girls without context, they blur together. It's mostly an issue of my own laziness because I can't be bothered to go look stuff up (or start to, get distracted, and never get back to it). And somehow, the few times I DO go look things up, it ends up being the stuff I genuinely don't like, which discourages me from looking up more. Yeah, I've got issues.

And I do have the same issue with male characters, so it's not a gender-related thing at all.

You should also try Star Driver. It's kinda like Gurren Lagann, but with the Hotbloodedness replaced by Fabulosity.

I can't remember why I stopped watching that show.

Symphogear doesn't rely on cuteness to sell things, you really should give it a try Wingus.

That's pretty true for most of season 1, but after the ending of the most recent episode, I'm starting to lose faith in it. (Although I'd say the second season isn't really necessary)

Could just be that after a while, the parade of Cute Girls all start to look pretty same-y.

Uh, how does everything look samey unless you're not paying attention? (or if the things are by the same studio/character designer, i.e. Kokoro Connect and K-On) And if things do look samey, why would anybody not have had this issue in earlier years? Or with male characters?

I see Cute Girls without context, they blur together. It's mostly an issue of my own laziness because I can't be bothered to go look stuff up (or start to, get distracted, and never get back to it). And somehow, the few times I DO go look things up, it ends up being the stuff I genuinely don't like, which discourages me from looking up more. Yeah, I've got issues.

And I do have the same issue with male characters, so it's not a gender-related thing at all.

Huh. Well, I don't have the issue with things blurring together or looking samey despite having interest in very little. Not sure why.

Eh, it was like, one scene so far out the four episodes that are out. If they did that at the end of each episode then I'd be worried.
