You don't even hear a hint of an accent, and she only very rarely chooses some odd wording where she probably wasn't familiar with the more appropriate alternative due to its relative obscurity.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:41 AM)

Just watched what's possibly the most relaxed interview ever of a German Youtuber interviewing Zazie while walking around Berlin. Turns out she was born in Berlin and spent quite some time in Germany.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:39 AM)

Actors and actresses I had no idea speak fluent German, part 4.231: Zazie Beetz from Deadpool 2.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:14 PM)

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.

@  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)

fun and games

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

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

Shouldn't be. I literally just built it. Not even three weeks ago even.

Jane Foster Thor and Odinson are coming out in the Thor Ragnarok wave. The rest are anybody's guess, but they're all pretty obscure. God knows I hadn't heard of any of them until now.

 

Didn't watch Thor 2, I take it?

To be fair he's pretty forgettable in that. Despite being the main villain.

I mainly know him from Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, and the Avengers Academy game.

I remember the red goo in Thor 2 better than I remember Malekith.  That was a bigger waste of Christopher Eccleston than his turn as Destro.

 

That Dark Phoenix 2-pack is really tempting....

Malaketh and Ulik are pretty big classic Thor villains. If you are a Thor comic fan you almost certainly know them. Bor I think is a bit more recent obscure.

ZacWilliam, Thor villains kinda go: Loki, Enchantress/Executioner, these two, Surtur and frost giants.

 

Yeah, I read very little Thor and I recognized them all. Though I might not have recognized Malekith if I hadn't been invested in Jane Foster Thor's story early on. I really should be buying and reading more Thor books.

 

[snip] ... and the Avengers Academy game.

 

I love that game. And I hate that I love it, because the iOs game formula is just the worst. But they've got their hooks in me.

Edit: This thead has gone long enough without toy pictures, so here's my most recent!

To tie talking about that game into this thread. 

It's interesting to look at what Marvel Legends figures are getting made, and what characters and costumes are getting added to Marvel's various free to play games.

You can get a pretty decent picture of who's on the table for licensees to use if you take it all in.

Like seeing how that A-Force boxset was announced around the same time the A-Force event happened in Avengers Academy.

(Although, Monica's still not in the game yet.)

Cyke/Jean are TRU exclusives along with the A-Force boxed set. Sue and Johnny Storm are both Walgreens exclusives. The Thor set is the SDCC exclusive.

The timing is right, but it feels sooner than expected. Apparently the new Guardians of the Galaxy wave is starting to show up domestically, according to those picking them up from Wal-mart.

I was able to track some of them down using the UPC codes, they were the only ones left. I went ahead and pre-ordered Star Lord and Ex Nihilo so that I could finish building Mantis, but tracking down Adam Warlock online might be a challenge.

Anyway, this is some gorgeous sculpt work. Among their best, I think?

You're definitely not wrong. They captured her "resting annoyed face" nicely in the sculpt.

Rocket's guns are kinda puny, so I tried out some beefier ones.

Seems like an odd choice for this line.

I think this is the first time they've done a Marvel character that isn't a live-action version.
