death comes for us all. what difference does it make how?

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 January 2021 - 06:26 PM)

It's only murder and that is all, why should I feel the way I do...

@  Rufus : (25 January 2021 - 01:37 PM)

It's only murder if it comes from the Murder region of France, otherwise it's just suspiciously deceased.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 January 2021 - 09:17 AM)

It's only murder if they find the body, otherwise it's just a missing persons case.

There was a five season anime with wearing relics as the premise.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 01:16 PM)

You don't wear relics, you enshrine them.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 06:23 PM)

Wrong holey... and probably the wrong way to dress too.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2021 - 06:09 PM)

If your underwear is old and holy, it is considered a relic and should be protected with your life.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 02:04 PM)

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

I'm in the opposite boat.

I *want* most of the figures in that assortment, but my Half.com store has been operating below par and so I've had to scale back my collecting budget to compensate; there's no way I can fit a full case into my budget.

With USPS raising its shipping costs to Canada, I'm gonna be rolling that dice too...

But Data-Viper's probably the lowest on my army builder list... He's neat, but limited in functionality. I'm getting one, but just one.

Speaking as someone who doesn't army build anything, Data Viper's tops on my list and probably the figure I'm most excited for in, like, years. But I have a soft spot for all the '89-'90 Cobras, so I want that Night Viper.

I keep going back and forth on the last wave. I'm almost certain we'll never see it in stores and if we do it will be one case worth and then gone. But man, all the repacks aren't even of the good figures. They're still mostly on pegs right now. The only one worth keeping for customs would be the Lady Jaye. I suppose from that perspective I'm saving money by overpaying for the four new figures... screw it preordered the four. Maybe I'll get lucky and see them before BBTS gets them in stock. Worst case scenario I should be able to sell them again if I have to.

With wave 4 (Ultimate wave), I'm fairly excited/interested in 10 of the 12 figures, so I figured that was a good ratio to justify the expense of a full case purchase. I've been rereading the old GI Joe comics so Kwinn has SOME interest (in that his IS a quality release, though given the option there are about a dozen different things I'd rather take, even an extra CG or CCN or even Data Viper). Budo does NOTHING for me, at all. I think he's a case where hasbro had his tooling done and just dumped him in the assortment (like Kwinn)

But, according to Hisstank, the only thing you can find on shelves are wave 1 figures and the "same old, same old" icon-waspy.gif

I still think a LOT of those people are "seeing what they want to see", not necessarily what's accurately on pegs. Given the naming confusion and all that, I'm very much inclined to say that there were parts of Hasbro's marketing/sales/brand team who didn't realize wave 3 (LJ, etc) saw the kind of saturation it did.

I don't really care about Kwinn at all. He looks boring and isn't a particularly compelling character. His only outstanding trait is that he didn't already exist.

Heh yeah - it doesn't help that the Roadblock's are so similar at first glance and really the upcoming "Ultimate" is mostly a more articulated version of what we've had before.

I'm sure it's regional as much as anything else (and there aren't any currently left on the pegs) but there were plenty of Coltons and Jayes to be had initially. But the extra wave 2 SE/SSs aren't going anywhere - as usual.

Storm Shadow I'll give you, but around here at least, the wave 2 Snake Eyes was EXTREMELY popular, usually among the first couple figures sold of a case it seems. I actually couldn't find him until the 3rd or so refresh here.

I'm mainly into these two waves for Ultimate Roadblock -- prefer this outfit to the Battle Kata one, although I dunno what to do with the chair thingy -- and Jinx. Want to get two or three Jinxes actually, one to keep yellow and one to repaint as Vypra and one I dunno yet. Possibly Data Viper just because he's so unusual, and maybe Blind Master, but even that's a bit iffy since his character in the film wasn't really anything.

The rest... all look good, but I don't really need. Cobra Commander, Storm Shadow, Kwinn... all amazingly done, and I'm glad my passing on them at least means there's theoretically more for those who want them.

This is all my own stupid opinion

It's rather dumb, doesn't look much if anything like the actual vehicle.

The driver sits so far down that if you plug the big gap between the cage canopy (that extends beyond the vehicle's front) he can't see where he's going. The weapons when both are mounted can't rotate 360 any-more since they bash into each other. I'd say it's one of the worst vehicles since the VvsV NEUTRALIZER, the Mole Pod is a better vehicle than this.

It's just a poorly thought out vehicle. I'd say go get a PTE tank or track down a RoC Armored Panther.



It is save-able, if you are prepared to do a ton of scratch building and hours of work
