I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

@  Telly : (16 October 2019 - 10:48 PM)

my walmart is acting true to form. as soon as mirage arrives from amazon, my walmart gets his entire wave in after months of having wave 1 clogging the pegs....

@  Nevermore : (16 October 2019 - 05:18 PM)

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

Pretty sure they didn't care about the actual release dates. 90% of their audience won't.

They probably just wanted something that looked good and was the easiest/quickest to reproduce.

Yeah, it's like when That 70s Show used modern Star Wars figures or modern Spider-Man blankets... nobody but us are going to notice.

The Goldbergs' whole deal is that it takes place in "the 80s."  It blends the whole decade without regards to the actual dates of things.  Or so I understand from having heard about the show but never actually watched it.

So this might part of the new IDW Hasbro Reboot Universe? That is if they are going keep a Hasbro Universe a thing in comics.

Yeah, the writer has said it's inspired by his memories which might be off and they don't worry about specific chronology. And no, I haven't watched it either.

I'm more surprised at their use of all these custom figures based on stuff that never had toys. I thought those were just fan mockups.

 

Maybe they should've used Funko/Super7 ReActions instead.

Interestingly, GI Joe is cited as part of this entertainment initiative, but Transformers was not.  Likely an oversight, but still nice to see some more momentum building for GI Joe going into the build up for 2020.

There was always pushback from certain readers about ninjas, fantasy elements, and sci-fi in the Joe comics. There were factions that wanted it to be straight military action, done as realistically as possible, but that is not what it was ever intended to be. We certainly weren’t trying to do Sgt. Rock, or Sgt. Fury. There was a fantasy and sci-fi element to the ARAH comic right from issue #1. And it is good to remember that the people who write letters may not necessarily be representative of the majority of readers. A wise editor told me four decades ago that in comics, “the letter writers represent the letter writers.” If the majority of readers really didn’t like the ninja stuff, why on earth are Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow so darn popular?

The most effort I've ever put into a lazy custom. Wolf Squad Dial Tone. Made from parts I had just laying around.

 

Body, legs and upper arms are Sgt. Stone. Lower arms, hands and bandolier are from a spare 50th Firefly. Rifle from Mainframe, and backpack from FSS Jammer.

Hey now, putting together lazy customs from parts and pulling it off is one of the best things in customizing imo. Dial Tone looks great.
