@  TheMightyMol... : (19 October 2019 - 06:40 AM)

What's it like to have management that's willing to listen to things they don't want to hear? I've never seen that.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:41 AM)

I manage to argue within the company's own internal logic and point out the flaws, shortcomings and discrepancies between "official company policy" and "everyday company reality".

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:40 AM)

Many of my coworkers are scared to even talk to managers. I often discuss company matters with them I disagree with, and it isn't a rare occurrence that they say "yeah, you're right..."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:38 AM)

I know how to watch my tone, and I prefer to keep things straightforward and factual, never to attack the person, always the problem itself.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:37 AM)

The good thing for me is ever since a minor hiccup many years ago when I was still non-permanent, I've always managed to along just fine with my various superiors (I've been through over a dozen already). And that's despite my outspokenness, my blunt honesty and my oftentimes harsh criticism.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 October 2019 - 04:28 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 October 2019 - 04:16 PM)

@  Echowarrior : (18 October 2019 - 09:19 AM)

Amazon in the US has pretty good benefits, though, and even the temp workers had forty hours a week to start with. Even with minimum wage, that's pretty good pay.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Oh, the turnover rates are high here as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Amazon.com and .ca, on the other hand, can be pretty terrible. I know from your squawkbox posts that you guys have your issues with Amazon over there, although you're lucky to have stronger government regulations and a union there. I gather the warehouse workers in the USA and Canada have it pretty crappy, with very high turnover, close to minimum wage pay, and no unions

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:38 PM)

Amazon.de doesn't really have the same issue. I've ordered from them (and UK, FR, IT and JP) several times, and their packaging is much better

@  Nevermore : (17 October 2019 - 05:22 PM)

I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

@  Telly : (16 October 2019 - 10:48 PM)

my walmart is acting true to form. as soon as mirage arrives from amazon, my walmart gets his entire wave in after months of having wave 1 clogging the pegs....

@  Nevermore : (16 October 2019 - 05:18 PM)

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 01:51 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 09:22 AM)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

@  CVReynolds : (14 October 2019 - 08:09 AM)

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 07:25 AM)

Union Jack and Citizen V are still my picks.  But Silver Samurai, Nightcrawler, and a new Emma Frost (never got the impossible to obtain last one) are on my radar too.

Jeeeeeeeeeezus. They've knocked it out of the park with the Marvel Legends for, oh, 3-4 years now, and they just keep getting better. And even so, I'm still friggin' surprised. Out of the new reveals, it would be easier to list what DOESN'T interest me as opposed to what does. Sheesh.

 

Not interested in Silver Samurai. And not terribly interested in Stealth-Spidey. Everything else is on varying levels of "WANT!", "GIVE IT!" or "NEED DIS!". My faves are probably the Cap and Sharon Carter 2-pack, Mjolnir-breakin' Hela and Scourge, Colossus vs Juggernaut, the Alex Ross Thor, Cap, and Iron Man, Binary form Captain Marvel, Boom Boom, Outback Dazzler, and that STUPID, SEXY Mister Sinister.

 

I am SO boned.

Was there really a big demand for black suited Emma Frost?

I was excite to finally replace my Ann Coulter Hasbro Frost since I missed that impossible to find Puck wave.

 

I may see what a spare Dark Phoenix head looks like on the body and use it as a Goblin Queen.  Here's hoping we get a proper White Queen in a future wave.

Well, it is her most current costume and she's technically only the "White" Queen when she's part of the Hellfire Club.  As an X-Man, she's just really Emma Frost.

Oh okay - that makes sense then.  I don't follow current comics anymore so my preference for X-Men runs 80s-90s.

 

Supposedly, there are two more Vintage wave X-Men releases.

I'm secretly hoping for an 80s Kitty Pryde.

90s Jim Lee Storm, too plz.

Jim Lee Storm feels like an inevitability in the main line; the designers have stated a desire to complete the Blue/Gold teams in interviews.

 

What I'd like is for that to come out, and then they use that tooling to create a classic Dave Cockrum version for the Vintage wave. :)

I love that we're getting a new vintage Colossus, and I'm also glad I held off on buying a Juggy BAF at the aftermarket prices. But I'm a selfish bastard. I still want a JR Jr. "Russian" costume version. 

 

And Deadpool movie Colossus, but that goes without saying.

I like that Juggernaut. I have the old Toy Biz one who is great except the creepy long arms. And the Marvel Select Jugs is like 3 lbs. of amazing. But this new one looks pretty darn good.

Finally a Boomer and Dazzler...just as I was getting to making their customs for my vintage Toybiz collection.

This new one actually seem to be pretty much the same as the Juggernaut build-a-figure from a couple of years back. New helmet options, yes, but largely the same figure.

Well, if I have to re-buy him to get the Colossus, I’m mollified he’s at least coming with a helmetless head.

(Even if it is sporting a shiner that Colossus ain’t no way capable of giving him)
