It's too bad it's like this because some of what they're doing with tiny cars is pretty cool, but I'm not willing to sign up for that f-ing hassle.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:13 PM)

At this point I'm trying to decide how much of a markup I'm willing to pay some scalper scum or if I should just say to hell with it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 September 2019 - 02:11 PM)

That is pretty much the constant story with Hot Wheels. Anything you might actually want has most likely been picked clean and marked up.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:02 PM)

I've been watching some Youtube Hot Wheels videos out of boredom and discovered there exists a new car that just came out maybe a month ago that looks just like one I had when I was little, and I've been looking around hoping to get it. Slim picking everywhere, but online there are a slew of sellers asking for 3 and 4x the retail price, plus a hefty shipping markup.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 01:59 PM)

Oh, that explains the problem I've encountered with finding one little car

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 September 2019 - 01:31 PM)

Oh boy. I work at Target, and literally every single morning, there are two or three guys outside who make a beeline straight to the Hot Wheels.

Which collecting community has the worst scalpers?

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 September 2019 - 09:55 PM)

I've never read the source material and don't know much about it, but I enjoyed the first film quite a bit, and found the second alright

@  Sabrblade : (17 September 2019 - 09:49 PM)

The first movie was definitely not for me. I flat out hated it. Didn't even bother with the sequel.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2019 - 05:02 PM)

I liked the first movie a lot and enjoyed the original volume of the book, and the way they were developed in parallel was really interesting. It all got super extra unpleasant as soon as they went back though. I don't remember really whether the initial sequels are "good" or not, but either way both the second movie and the second run of the book quickly demonstrated that the property sure wasn't for me.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i have a real hard time offering praise of anything connected to an utter shitstain like Mark Millar.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2019 - 01:23 PM)

Kick Ass 2 was okay for what it was, a sequel to a film that was okay, just okay. It had a good performance from Nic Cage while the sequel had Jim Carrey who decided he didn't want to promote it after one of america's regularly scheduled massacres.

@  Benbot : (17 September 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Was Kick Ass 2 really that bad? I never got around to seeing it, but after watching the first movie again the other day, I'm thinking about it.

If you owe, you're expected to actually pay it at the time you file, before they even process your return

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 September 2019 - 11:10 PM)

If you file electronically, I find you usually get your refund within a couple weeks

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Well, lucky it took less than two months for me. For a little over 200 Euros.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Pretty much, yeah. Canada revenue will be all up your ass if you earn less than 200K and owe tax, but your refund is basically "duke nukem forever".

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Whereas if you overpaid and they have to refund you, they will take their sweet time to let you know.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Like, here in Germany, if the tax authority responds to your tax report quickly, you can rest assured they want more money.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Do tax authorities in other countries base their time to respond to filed tax reports on whether they owe or are owed as well?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 11:13 AM)

Check what the requirements are for your cad program, and try to beat them by about 20%, and understand that software requirements have been stable for a few years: not really keeping up with the advancements in hardware. Unless you're doing something SPECIFIC which requires ludicrous amounts of power, just give your self a cushion on hardware and don't bother going whole hog.

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 10:16 AM)

What I'm currently using is an i5 2018 Surface Laptop. My current desktop is all but dead. I think in the end affordability will win out over specs. I need to use CAD programs, but I'm a student, not a professional.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 10:06 AM)

Okay. Whats the specs on the I7 and what are you currently using?

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 09:23 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (09 September 2019 - 04:43 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (09 September 2019 - 11:52 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 07:37 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 06:46 PM)

Alright. The damages now seem to include my primary SSD. Thankfully, the gaming drive (I have now lost all my games and mods entirely.) Let me wipe it and install there. Once the crucial utility is installed again, will verify the drive.

So I spotted Dazzler, Polaris, Shatterstar, and Sunfire at Target yesterday. I couldn't believe it, but I didn't walk out with any of them. Considering the $500 I just boomed up for the Mythic Legions Kickstarter and the $400 I'll be dropping on the Switch tomorrow, I just couldn't do it.

 

Plus, I feel like I will be able to get a better deal on Amazon later. Fingers crossed.

I saw Dazzler, Polaris, and Sunfire today.  I passed.  I'm mostly interested in Cyclops (gotta replace the old ToyBiz version) and Shatterstar.

Like you, I'm betting that the price drops on the majority of the wave since outside of Colossus, Wolvie, Cyke, and *maybe* Shatterstar, the rest will likely warm the pegs.

 

 

It feels strange to say because the rest of the time people are scalping the shit out of these things, but I really have no idea how they can charge so little for Legends figures on eBay sometimes and turn any kind of profit. I rarely see them discounted on the pegs. I got Black Panther for ten dollars in a sealed box, domestic seller and everything. I totally get why the ones minus the BAF pieces would come down, but I want to complete Warlock. As if 2017 wasn't going to be expensive enough, looks like I'll be buying entire waves of Legends figures this year. Making Mantis a BAF was diabolical.

Quick question, I picked up a darkhawk last weekend and the claws are kinda bent. Any recommendations for a permanent fix? Or is heat the only real fix? I was worried they might be a little to thin for that to be safe...

Run under hot water, bend in place while burning your own fingers, run under cold water while still held in place. It works well.

I've had the hasbrotoyshop.com page for Cyclops open on my work and home computers and my cell refreshing periodically since it started being listed as "coming soon" on Sunday.

 

They listed it sometime between midnight and 4:40 am last night, and it sold out.

 

I'm happy I got Colossus, but what the hell.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

So I've recently gotten back into getting some of these after a eleven or twelve year hiatus. Mostly due to the X-Men waves.

Can anyone tell me why SDCC 2015 Magik goes for nearly $200 on her own. Short of being an exclusive from almost 2 years ago? Doesn't seem the others from that set are nearly as expensive.

I've also recently picked up some Civil War Hot Toys, not sure if anyone discusses them here?

That's the power of the X-ladies, unfortunately. Past SDCC exclusive Psylocke goes for just as much, as does the TRU-exclusive Storm from a couple years ago (who in turn comes with the torso of Jubilee).
