Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

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
