@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 06:50 AM)

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

Although the TV edits of Robocop do contain some hilarity

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:41 PM)

I can't think of any instance where sanitizing a film is a good thing.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 06:42 PM)

.... and thats a good thing? :doh

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 May 2020 - 06:39 PM)

I'm watching Predator on Starz! That means it has all the language and gore uncensored!

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 04:23 PM)

*grabs popcorn*

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 12:49 PM)

*watching everyone argue* O^O

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:30 PM)

Well, my main point is that it will speed up the system migration so I have A) less system downtime because there are fewer files to transfer before the new system can be up and running and B) it reduces the risk of something going wrong during the system migration.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 May 2020 - 06:19 AM)

If your primary is getting cleaned up anyway cause you were backing stuff up, then yeah, no reason not to. But largely, it's not a necessary step.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 AM)

It's like you find out that there's a fire going to break out in the house you live in soon, so you find a new place, get your entire Transformers collection into safe storage, and now all that's left are the empty cabinets which you intend to move over to your new place soon. If the fire breaks out before then, sure, you'd need to get new cabinets, but your toys are already out of the danger zone.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:27 AM)

At this point, I'm in a "if the old system crashed before the new drive arrives, it will be slightly annoying, not a complete disaster" mood.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:26 AM)

I've mostly just backed up my personal files and stuff on the external hard drive. The existing Windows installment is supposed to be directly cloned to the new drive once it arrives.

@  Hg Dragon : (21 May 2020 - 01:44 AM)

Who else has ever been so out of it that you've gotten into the shower with your glasses on?

@  Echowarrior : (20 May 2020 - 11:08 PM)

Nope. We've been forced to go with Eclipse. It sucks, and I will continue to call the people in charge of the website fascists until they give me reason to do otherwise.

@  CORVUS : (20 May 2020 - 10:20 PM)

Yeah, I'm not a fan of the new layout either. Fortunately you can stay with the old one though.

@  Liege : (20 May 2020 - 08:57 PM)

So now it matches 90% of the content.

@  Trpodeca : (20 May 2020 - 05:18 PM)

Wow the new Deviantart layout is terrible.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 May 2020 - 10:39 AM)

Are you referring to cloning your drive to install into your computer as the replacement, or are you creating an image to restore from should something unforseen occur?

@  Nevermore : (20 May 2020 - 06:36 AM)

Backing up the data not necessary for running Windows on an external drive for safekeeping, trimming down the old drive to a bare minimum, then migrating the old drive to the new one.

@  Nevermore : (20 May 2020 - 06:35 AM)

Yes, but it will make direct migration faster, no?

Avengers 3.75" Wave 1 is up for pre-order on BBTS. The case asortment has two of everyone except Wasp who is one per case, and Iron Man who is three per case. Idiots. :rolleyes

 

I pre-ordered my set of 6 so I'm all set. :thumbsup

 

The MU revision case is also up, but I'm not buying an entire case just in the hopes that I might get a Northstar.

 

 

Same here.  I guess either I will have to get lucky enough to find one, or just do without.

 

Better believe I got my set of 6 Avengers ordered. :thumbsup

If Target deigns to carry this series, I hope it gets a new DPCI. That should make everyone in the first wave, at least, easier to find.

Spider Man Infinite running change figures exist!

Already selling, loose, from Hong Kong, so it's likely they've been produced, and will show up somewhere.

 

I think Boomerang will join my DCUC collection.

I'm not sure how I feel about that Toxin. I'm not a huge fan of Eddie Brock's Toxin design in the first place, and this figure doesn't even seem like it captures it all that well. Although it does look better than the initial pictures we saw of it. I think the limbs could still be a little darker.

 

However I am a fan of the Toxin Symbiote, and the idea of Hasbro making figures of Symbiotes other than Venom and Carnage. Hopefully we get a few more eventually.

(Even if a lot of the previous hosts were killed off/replaced in the comics in recent years.)

Oh Hasbro "lets make stuff, but never sell it."

 

There's a landfill somewhere with US cases of Animated Thundercracker, Goldfire Gimlock, Mudbuster Bulkhead, and Blackout.  I just know it.

I had quit reading Spidey with OMD so I just now tried to back track and figure out the Toxin thing... then I found Anti-Venom and none of that made a great deal of sense. Ugh... symbiotes suck.


On the actual toy front... it would be great if one day they released a Spidey whose webs didn't suck... other than Sensational. Those toys were cool.

I think I'm looking forward to Spider-girl more than Black Cat. Partly because I prefer action figures of designs with covered eyes.

I haven't read much with her in it, but she seem enjoyable enough as a character.

Oh man, if that's how feel about Anti-Venom then I bet you'll love Venom's new(ish) teenage sidekick, Mania.

I'm a Symbiote fan and even I think it's kind of silly, but I still like her for some reason.

Why is THAT happening?

She was introduced last year only a couple issues before the current Venom series ended. She hasn't shown up anywhere else, so we don't really know what she's up to at the moment.

 

Spoiler

 

Despite being ridiculous, I do hope her story gets resolved in a satisfying way at some point, and she doesn't just end up dead in a gutter somewhere in a decade.

I honestly think the Red Hulk, x-23, Venom, Ghost Rider thing was the culmination of all the things I dislike about certain comic fans and comics in general. I couldn't believe it was real when I first saw the image...

Speaking of which, is there any merch of the Red Venom Hulk Rider of Vengeance(or whatever it's called)?

If not then there should. That thing looks like it was made to be a statue.

 

I get that all of that sounds like the worst thing ever(So does "Venom, but with GUNS!"), but it really didn't seem that bad while I was reading it.

I didn't understand last years.  Tons of new tooling and in-demand characters, that very few people get a shot at for a normal price.


I think I've read somewhere that the set was supposed to be like some sort of "pre-release" for the characters (maybe like the SDCC Bruticus set?), so perhaps there was supposed to be retail versions for at least some of those Thunderbolts. Then again, I'm not sure where I read this, so I don't know if it's true in any way whatsoever.

I actually came in here to tell that target canada seems to be liquidating marvel stock. 5.25 for basic figs and 13.99 for three packs. I spent forty bucks and got seven new figs!

 

Edit: most of them are really cool, but baron zemo does not hold his weapons at all. With the shape of his hands, its entirely impossible. There is simply too much room between palm and finger.

Aren't comics awesome?

I think they only way to have made it better/worse would have been to somehow have worked X-23's claws into the design.
