@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:38 AM)

Would you like some dressing to go with your word salad?

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:24 AM)

This is an American site, but isn't that unnecessarily severe language? IIRC it's one of the top four offensive pejoratives to English people

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Though with the luck and caliber of leaders we've had of late in the darkest timeline, maybe it's too much to hope for.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM)

Just like democracy, it's not perfect but better than the present alternatives. Capitalism as it's practiced today won't be able to weather the coming wave of automation, though. Best to plan for it and hope for a gentle transition rather than the aforementioned collapse

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Capitalism is the worst amiright? Sent from my iPhone

@  Vexwing : (15 July 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Because the collapse is gonna be just great.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 PM)

Let's hope this is late stage and we're on the cusp of something better.

@  abates : (15 July 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Late stage capitalism is the absolute best.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 01:33 PM)

So, welcome to all retail, everywhere.

I think you might've meant to quote Nanite.

Me, I've got no real basis for comparison, cause this relaunch is my first time buying ML figures at retail. My entire collection prior to this was acquired between 2010 and 2011, primarily over eBay and other such venues (except for the occasional TRU 2-pack).

Looks like the Legends are hitting en mass. I saw all of Wave 2 at Toys R Us, and Wave 1 leftovers at Target.

Still looking for an Electro Shield Steve Rogers!

I really want Arnim Zola, but I'm not very interested in the Wave 2 figures themselves. They looked nice, I just have no familiarity with any of these characters or costumes.

Just a note for anybody who picks up the Stark Tek Assault Armors-- the weapon peg-holes on the mechs are compatible with the DotM Mech-Tech weapon pegs, just in case the weapons it comes with weren't enough for you.

Just saw the entire Arnim Zola Variant wave at Toys R Us. Can't afford them right now.

I also didn't realize there are two versions of Zola's main body, one with Zola's face, and one with Red Skull's. That makes me cranky, because I may never see the non-variant case.

So, after giving up, I finally found the DD/Bullseye pack. BE is nice, but I am not digging the aesthetics on the neck/head articulation. It looks almost as bad as TB Marvel Legends did back in the day. Yuck!

What makes me sad is Daredevil. I REALLY want a good DD. There are no more left in town, and this one has a hip joint problem. The left leg pops out whenever I move it. Is there a fix for this, or am I going to just have to return it and hope for a single carded version down the road?

I don't think I've ever had that issue with mine, but I'll admit that I don't put my guys into dynamic poses very often.

The local Target had this set the last time I was there. Do you want me to swing by and grab it for you?

Hmm. I will try that. I think it is more to do with a slight deformation in the plastic, but I really want to keep this guy, so I will give it a shot.

Anyone collecting the new Marvel Legends? I'm in the market for a complete Electro-Shield Steve Rogers, and Terrax' arms from Ghost Rider.

I've only seen remnants of the Wave 1's variant case (no Steve's left, alas).

Bought the Avengers Iron Man Mech-Armour thing. The figure it comes with is crap, tho he at least has single hinged knees. No matter since I have a plethora of other Iron Man figures that can switch out.

The Mech-Armour itself is pretty spiffy. It's not wildly articulated (could have used knee joints) or loaded with features (no lights, sounds, or even light-piped eyes) that might justify its $20 price point, but the War Machine-esque shoulder mounted chain gun and missile box launcher are pretty nice as is potential use as a proper Hulk-Buster armour due to it's size. I do wish it had come with two wrist-mounted weapons rather than just the one.

Not sure how I feel about the Captain America version, but I guess I could buy it eventually to use with the Iron Patriot armour or Captain America armour. Seems silly to have Captain America in it.

A War Machine deco'ed one, on the other hand, would be an immediate purchase.

EDIT: Oh, and the translucent blue shielded interface for Iron Man's hands was a nice touch of attention to detail since all that armour doesn't do you a lick of good if your arms are exposed and can be accidentally snapped off during an intense battle.

All Marvel figures are BOGO 50% right now at TRU. I saw the second wave of ML. They look nice, but other than Bucky Cap, I feel no need to have any of this set. I couldn't even get Cap because the paint had a big chunk knocked out of the stomach. :/

I went hunting this weekend and STILL no ML wave 2 in my area. *sigh*

However as luck would have it I did frind a lone normal version Black Widow/Winter Soldier two pack at my TRU that wasn't there before. They've only had the variant version since last year and the only thing I can figure is that the normal one was a return. Now I just need to find me that Hulk from the two pack as well as a Deadpool (yeah right) and I can be happy.
