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.

@  unluckiness : (12 September 2019 - 12:54 AM)

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)

Depends entirely on what you use the computer for.

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

Probably not

@  Benbot : (09 September 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Do I need an i7 on my new computer?

@  MEDdMI : (08 September 2019 - 08:23 AM)

But did you feed any small fuzzy creatures after midnight?

@  wonko the sane? : (08 September 2019 - 06:32 AM)

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

@  TM2-Megatron : (07 September 2019 - 10:13 PM)

Sounds like your computer's on its last lags, Wonko

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

Dunno, crucial says it's fine, gonna need a second opinion.

@  Pennpenn : (07 September 2019 - 06:52 PM)

Good luck! (or break a leg if it's like theater luck...)

@  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.

There was Iceman in the Juggernaut wave, but he doesn't look like Iceman from that era.  With the ice crystals and toed feet look.

 

I have that figure, and I hate him. The plastic he's made of is way too soft, and he's constantly falling over. Even with a peg-stand or sticky-tac.

 

 

Yeah, he's one I considered selling instantly.  But since there hasn't been a better Iceman since, I haven't gone through with it.

I don't know, she seems to be the tallest one there. I think that would make it pretty hard for her to hide.

ZacWilliam, also I think Jean has discovered THE most uncomfortable way to stand.

I meant the Marvel Legends one. I got Blink last week. I went ahead and ordered Jubilee from Amazon last night. It says it should arrive next Wednesday, which means I should start seeing it on store shelves this Friday.

I went a head and ordered Vision last weekend. He was really pretty in that retro card packaging I almost didn't want to open him.

Verdict: Pretty cool all around although mine has a couple of semi-loose joints and the lack of any build a figure parts made him seem a little sparse for the price compared to some of the other Marvel Legends (and I don't even do anything with those random limbs.)


-ZacWilliam, want Beast and Hercules next but given the amount of TF stuff coming this summer I expect they may have to wait a bit.

Haha, yeah that Jubes is big, but the mold is good. Just needed some leg and arm paint. I may attempt to change out her limbs at some point if I can do it without making her torso look bloated.
Is anyone else here I to 90s X figures? Anyone have pics?

The Kitty Pryde figure that was released recently was also too tall, so I'm not shocked the jubilee is ended up with a growth-spurt.

I forgot about this Hulk thing with the other statues, so I put it here

I don't even know who a couple of these guys are (guy with wings next to Cyclops and Luke Cage or the guy dressed in purple with a red mask). I get the feeling I just bought those two to get the final two pieces for the Create-A-Mojo.

Pictures were taken on my kitchen counter because it was the only place mostly clear enough to do it.

No I will not be doing pictures of my DC universe collection. It was a pain enough just to drag these out from three different places!

ACTUALLY that is some weird re-release from much later on with the "appear in cold" paint apps just done in white. I also have the blue one. I wanted the original white one SO BAD when I was a kid, but I never found it. Along with Roadblock from G.I.Joe, that made 1992 a frustrating year.

The wing guy is 1970s Falcon, and the purple guy is classic Baron Zemo
