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.

So relieved that I picked up most of my NTSC GameCube collection in 2010/11 before prices on the secondary market went bezerk...

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

I have fond memories of it since it was the last console Mario Kart that didn't have the ridiculous pre-race cart assembly

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 September 2019 - 10:26 PM)

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.

I had the Build a Figure Juggernaut from a year or two ago, and was perfectly happy with him.

 

But man, the new one blows him out of the water.  And all they needed to do was give him a new helmet (I think the underlying face might be the same or almost the same, just painted differently), take off his belt, and make him more red.

 

He's like this perfect representation of the Juggernaut in my mind.  It makes me think of the Jim Lee and Rob Leifeld art with him.  Where his eyes were all white and he was a lot more red than other depictions.  Oh and the Children of the Atom game.  That too.

Dang it! Now there is a reason to get Silver Samurai :D Have they done Spiral before? And we need the Capcom Sentinel as a new BaF.

Yeah, there's a Spiral from the early days of Hasbro's ML.  Ironically, she's still a pretty decent figure, and one of the very few female moulds to feature double-jointed elbows.

 

I really heart the new Juggernaut compared to the old BAF, mainly because of the red.  My only gripe is that the helmet doesn't set flush against the body.

 

I'm still torn between it and Marvel Select Juggernaut as my favourite.  I think if MS ever released the mould in red instead of brown, that would be the final push for MS to win.  Until then, 80th Juggernaut went on my X-Villains shelf.

 

I really do like the Silver Samurai figure.  Although, I might buy a new one because the one I got from Hasbro Pulse has a doofy left eye.

Over the past month, I've managed to snag Madripor Wolverine, the Colossus-Juggernaut 2-pack, Gambit on clearance at Best Buy, 80th Thor and Iron Man, Nightcrawler, and Blink. Not too bad.

I went to four different Walgreens in Springfield and all but 1 had 1. So they might be in the adjoining CT Walgreens. Like the two in Enfield or even Longmeadow MA.

Found the Into the Spiderverse Miles and Gwen 2 pack at a hobby shop the other day. Was pretty cool with it until I opened it up and realized this was a pretty poor pack for Gwen. First of all her right arm thanks to paint is permanently in a straight position and I fear trying to bend it will brake the joint completely. Two they used a classic comic Gwen head for her unmasked look. I dont believe Spider-Gwen has ever had the black hair band unless she was trying to pose as classic Gwen in the Clone Thing a few years ago in the comics.

Actually nope. Your right about her first appearance but the headband has been ditched for a long time now. Even so if this is supposed to be based on the Spider-verse movie she never had it even before Miles takes off with a handful of her hair.

 

Eating my own words after looking at the latest issue of her own book.

Yeah the set is recycling the comic book versions to cash in on the property. Hence both Gwen and Miles having different hairstyles. :)

At least Miles is using the movies suit design. Although I wouldnt be bothered by his comic design either.
