Well, if the merchant benefited from it there's no harm, I guess. Some people just aren't comfortable dealing with foreign currencies; although admittedly those usually aren't the types who'll go to a place like Estonia.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 March 2019 - 05:51 PM)

I gather this was an ad hoc sale with no machine around. Or the U.S.-Americans in this story were so entitled they didn't bother getting any euros for their trip. One hears about the latter phenomenon often enough.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 March 2019 - 05:46 PM)

Easier to just use a credit card with no foreign currency conversion fee. There are plenty to choose from in the US

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 March 2019 - 05:40 PM)

Joke's on them because the USD-EUR exchange rate gave him a lot more.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 March 2019 - 05:39 PM)

Just read an anecdote on Facebook from an Estonian guy who once accepted U.S. dollars on par from some 'Mericans who didn't change their currency when traveling to another country.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 March 2019 - 11:14 AM)

Try their TF/GIJoe comic. I dare you. (I'm sorry in advance.)

@  Fnu Aw : (19 March 2019 - 10:41 AM)

My first reaction reading Dreamwave was "What am I stupid or something?" It can be hard to follow what's happening at times.

@  Paladin : (19 March 2019 - 07:52 AM)

but enough about *INSERT LEAST FAVORITE WEBCOMIC HERE*

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 March 2019 - 06:15 AM)

He draws about as well as he runs a business.

@  Nevermore : (19 March 2019 - 06:01 AM)

But... but... it has artwork by Superstar Extraordinaire Paticus Funana Lee!

@  Trpodeca : (19 March 2019 - 03:36 AM)

The second one,has a lot more interesting idea (A unified post war Cybertron, people viewing Optimus differently now the wars over), but in practice it's a disjointed mess.

@  Trpodeca : (19 March 2019 - 03:34 AM)

I'd say the first volume is the most Meh Transformers comic I've ever read. Reading it I felt like I was skipping a bunch of pages.

@  Trpodeca : (19 March 2019 - 03:32 AM)

You know I've been reading Dreamwave's comics and its not very good.

@  lastmaximal : (18 March 2019 - 11:36 PM)

Basics we can afford to take for granted. So let's cool it.

@  Nevermore : (18 March 2019 - 06:07 PM)

@  KidTDragon : (18 March 2019 - 01:59 PM)

Tucker has to have his threads approved before they'll post now? That's hilarious.

@  Kayla Kaon : (18 March 2019 - 01:19 PM)

Tucker, it is the same thread that you already posted. I am not approving that. As we have discussed you need to submit different content.

@  Kayla Kaon : (18 March 2019 - 01:18 PM)

We will look at it Tucker.

"Them" being alien reptiloid Muslim Zionist Atheist Sanatist Communist pedophile feminazis. Or something.

@  Nevermore : (18 March 2019 - 08:11 AM)

His views are "They're coming for us!"

@  unluckiness : (18 March 2019 - 12:59 AM)

I don't think even he knows his own views, frankly. What with blaming Spyro and having the Navy Seal copypasta in his so-called manifesto

@  Pennpenn : (17 March 2019 - 09:27 PM)

Even in the general population there are those who share his views. Probably a significant crossover with the ones who blame Muslims for what happened.

@  Pennpenn : (17 March 2019 - 09:25 PM)

It wouldn't surprise (but still disgust) me if there was a part of the prison population who condone or even celebrate his actions.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 March 2019 - 07:45 PM)

TFcon is returning to Washington, D.C. this North American autumn 2019.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 March 2019 - 02:48 PM)

I bet he will have to be kept in solitary for the rest of his life for his own protection against other prisoners.

That works too. The burger example was just fresher in my mind from another site.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 March 2019 - 01:52 PM)

"Paddy" is short for "Patrick". But "Patty" is still short for "Patricia", right?

@  Kayla Kaon : (17 March 2019 - 01:38 PM)

@  Locoman : (17 March 2019 - 01:26 PM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 March 2019 - 11:55 PM)

While I have no ties to Ireland, South or North, I have been reassured by many Irish people of the proper rendition.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 March 2019 - 11:54 PM)

Paddy is the diminutive of Pádraig. Patty belongs on a burger.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 March 2019 - 11:53 PM)

PSA to all: the abbreviated name is Paddy's Day or Saint Paddy's Day.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 March 2019 - 11:42 PM)

Another round of U.S.-Americans throwing around Disneyfied Irish symbolism for the sake of getting smashed.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 March 2019 - 11:41 PM)

Hooray, it is Lá Fhéile Pádraig / Saint Patrick's Day once again.

@  B-Fox : (16 March 2019 - 07:46 PM)

Is the furry segment in Love, Death, and Robots as furry as the furry segment in The ABCs of Death?

@  Bass X0 : (16 March 2019 - 01:52 PM)

He doesn't actually have anything to do with Necro, though...

@  Pennpenn : (15 March 2019 - 01:59 AM)

I mean, to be fair Joe, Randy, and Alan are also actual transformer names, so yeah.

@  repowers : (14 March 2019 - 07:18 PM)

There is! He's made to withstand plenty of play!

@  wonko the sane? : (14 March 2019 - 07:17 PM)

Now... which ones are humans?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 March 2019 - 07:17 PM)

Bumblebee! You, hound, and mitch go scout the decepticon base! Grimlock! You and Edward back them up. Prowl, stay here with Jessica and spike!

@  Paladin : (14 March 2019 - 06:52 PM)

is he related to Steve?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 March 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Holy crap, there's really a transformer named robert?

Has anyone seen a MU Magneto from the most recent wave with decent face paint? I really want that figure, but so far, every one I have found looks like a KISS reject.

Nope, they're all terrible. You might be better off taking the new one and transplanting the head from the old two-pack one (and maybe the cape).

I've not tried it yet myself, but it seems possible at first glance.

When you get him, be careful never to let him out of a protective bubble. The paint they used for his uniform and X rub off at the slightest provocation. You can almost sneeze it off. icon-megs.gif

Does anyone know when the Spider-Man Big Time/Future Foundation figure is coming out? I know it is part of wave two. I assume that it will be released sometime first quarter 2012?

FYI for anybody interested: I attempted the new Magneto body-Old Magneto head swap this evening.

Don't bother. The neck joints aren't even remotely compatible. It would be FAR too much of a pain to try to make it work.

I JUST finally started finding the wave 1 packs. S hopefully it'll head to retail soon.

Or order it from HTS and use the 25% off with free shipping code.

I'm curious about this too, since my understanding is that somehow the Paper Bag Spidey is a variant of that figure, and I need that hard.

The only MU figure I've ever bought is Deadpool, procured from HTS long ago, and I don't know much of anything about the line. I don't suppose variants are, like, easy to find, are they?

Are variants ever easy to find?
2 Timothy 3:16,17 - "All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work."

2 Timothy 1:9,10 - "God, who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, and which now has been manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel."

Acts 17:30,31 - "The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent, because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead."

John 3:16,17 - "For God so loved the world,that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him."

I guess it depends on the case ratio? I dunno, I've never collected any toylines with variants. Transformers doesn't have them, Simpsons: WOS didn't have them, and for the brief time I collected Star Wars, they didn't have anything except the occasional packaging mistake.
