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)

@  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.

Hasbro's big push for the Venom film appears to be some reruns of prior stuff from Marvel Legends and Ultimate Spider-Man.  New packaging and some alternate parts for the Legends.  I still suspect that some movie figures will get rolled into the Into the Spiderverse Legends wave.

This week was ML Clearance Goodness Week.

Darkhawk and Vance Astro for $5 a piece at Walmart?  I have not idea who Vance Astro is or why he has a shield, but for $5, who could resist?  Darkhawk is goofy 90s Marvel fun.

 

And then Amazon had Mr. and Mrs. Beetle for $9-10 a piece.  Again, no clue about either character, but since it's February, I thought it would be neat do be able to do this:

Also, I needed the BAF pieces so there's that.

WalMart leaked what was likely to be a big surprise for Toy Fair: 10th Anniversary MCU Legends, both new molds and remolds.

Photos shown for a new mold Iron Man Mark 7 (with adjustable wings!) new mold Crossbones, and Civil War Captain America with improved Chris Evans likeness.

Other releases will be for First Avenger (Likely to finally give us a Red Skull) Thor 2, and Ant Man. (Yellowjacket, I guess?)


Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

Some leaks from Avengers: Infinity War

https://marvelousnew...52&itemid=22780

 

6" figures from the first wave of basic figures.  Captain America, Black Widow, Iron Man, StarLord, and Thor.  All figures feature basic articulation and Infinity Stones which tie into the Hero Vision thing.

 

I'm just hoping we get more than a wave for this thing...too many major characters to do with this film and Hasbro's been VERY conservative with these sorts of lines in the past.

There are Amazon preorders up for Iron Man and the Crossbones set. And there's an imagine on Fwoosh of a Scarlet Witch/Vision 2-pack. This certainly is the year for filling up those movie display shelves.

Hmm... an entire wave dedicated to symbiotes and the only one they mentioned that interests me is Scream.
Now that's some real monkey's paw nonsense.

(Venom and Carnage would interest me if I didn't already have good versions of them.)


edit:
Is Pork Grind going to be the BaF? It'd be weird if Spider-ham just came with his head and that's it.

 

Now that we're getting a redone Kaine can we get a Hummingbird?

Maybe she can be in a two pack with Mania called "Sidekicks of the concurrent anti-hero Spider-mans of the early 2010s".

Finally an updated Bishop. Omega Red looks so good. The new Magneto looks good, hell tide me over until a Classic repaint. Classic Sabretooth and Apocalyse look great too.

Whats the difference between the Retail and Thanos Imperative Gladiator?

Doc Ock and the updated Scarlet Spidey look amazing. Poison looks great, I think Ill use him as a stand-in for Flash Thompson Anti-Venom.

The Venom wave packaging is absolutely beautiful.

I realized after I said this that the Pork Grind head is probably meant to be an alternate head for Venom.

In that case this wave might be the first whole wave I consider buying in awhile. I've really cut down on buying ML recently due to money/space issues.

 

I still need to track down the Space Venom wave at some point before that though.

For those interested, I just found the Sasquatch Deadpool wave (minus Cable, for some reason) on toysrus.com. Oh, and they qualified for BOGO 50% off. I got my confirmation e-mail and everything. :)

That Ant-man & Stinger two pack might be the first ML multi-pack I actually buy.
I've read a bit of MC2, and Stinger/Cassie is a boring character in it, but I really like her costume.

Too bad it's a TRU exclusive.

I'm very happy I went ahead and preordered Mysterio. (He sold out first, of course.)

 

As it turned out, my local pickup 2-pack wasn't in stock. Fortunately, they still honored my BOGO, so I ended up with Dom, DP, and X-23 for $40. :)

Got lucky yesterday. The Lizard SM wave hit one of my Walgreens. Nabbed Spider-Woman and Lasher for $12.99 each. Wasn't going to pick them up, but at that price, I couldn't resist. I'll be checking the other WG today for anyone else. :D
