@  wonko the sane? : (07 April 2020 - 11:49 AM)

Wasn't the first time. I probably did it one of the times the chain jumped the blade, or when I was cleaning it or sharpening it.

@  Darkstream : (07 April 2020 - 11:38 AM)

Sounds like something I'd do. I always install things backwards first.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 April 2020 - 07:32 AM)

Not while I'm outside working with the chainsaw. If it's working fine: then I don't need it. If it's NOT working; I use hand tools cause there is a job that brought me out there. No time to read.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 April 2020 - 03:07 AM)

You can Google manuals these days.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 April 2020 - 06:06 PM)

I can't. One: we don't know where dad hide the damn manual. Not that he read it either. And 2.) I'm congenitally incapable of reading it, being as I'm male.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 April 2020 - 01:52 PM)

Lesson learned: RTFM.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 April 2020 - 11:45 AM)

It's time for todays lesson! Did you know there's a wrong way to install a chainsaw blade? I didn't. I thought the damn thing was just blunted, but nope. Backwards.

@  CORVUS : (05 April 2020 - 06:41 PM)

CONTAGION is on my current watchlist. I'm kicking it off with OUTBREAK, and I have a whole lineup of pandemic-based films. I treat this stuff as a fear-innoculant.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 April 2020 - 03:52 PM)

My point is that of late, Taiwan's government executed lockdown procedures to great success. Vietnam has done similarly.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (05 April 2020 - 03:34 PM)

Didn't SARS just suddenly stop before it got very far?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 April 2020 - 03:24 PM)

*raises eyebrows due to familial knowledge of SARS*

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:43 PM)

It was uncomfortably real in 2011, it's downright scary in relation to the current pandemic.

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:42 PM)

It is, almost to an uncomfortable point.The virus portrayed in that film was FAR more aggressive and fatal than Coronavirus, but the sourcing and spread and impact hit REALLY close to home compared to what we're dealing with now

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 04:50 AM)

Actually on the subject, I've hard a lot of people refer to a 2011 film called Contagion that they think is relevant.

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Ah well, I'll stick to the classic British sitcoms: One Foot in the Grave, Til Death Do Us Part and They Think It's All Over.

@  TM2-Megatron : (05 April 2020 - 12:53 AM)

There's always the original, cheesy as it is

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (05 April 2020 - 12:10 AM)

Dunno... Tonight one of the major networks showed a movie with plagues.. including that listening to their leader causes the first born to die. ;P So nah.. I think the Stand could work. :D

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 April 2020 - 09:18 PM)

That's probably the last thing anyone needs to see, at the moment. Maybe when we get to the end of June/beginning of July and we can venture back out, it might be possible to find some enjoyment in The Stand.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 April 2020 - 02:08 PM)

I suppose the CBS adaptation of Stephen Kings The Stand will be delayed.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It arrived! Yay!

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Given how the virus lasts about 3-4 days on metals and plastics, it's about the only way to go about getting stuff right now. I ordered a monitor mount for my desk and the delivery has been pushed back twice already.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 11:04 AM)

He ordered it online, says it was to keep those delivery boys in business. I did the same a week ago with some Transformers Studio Series figures off Kapow. Don't know if it's wise or not considering.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 09:12 AM)

You'd be the first. Everyone else has either been frustrated cause the one they wanted was sold out (like during boxing week.) or rushing to replace something broken.

@  RYNO : (03 April 2020 - 08:53 AM)

I actually walked into a store the other day and just randomly decided to buy at 32inch TV. It was just a Vizio, and grabbed a Mounting Bracket for it. No duress. Just a spur of the moment wanted a TV for my master bedroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:31 AM)

Conversely: I've never met a person who wasn't buying a TV under duress... so... yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:20 AM)

I think I've met maybe two people other than myself who count cables before buying a TV.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 April 2020 - 05:33 AM)

Seriously.. HDMI splitters and switches are so bloody finicky, but most tvs don't have enough inputs.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 05:09 AM)

Just spent a hour trying to get my brothers new Samsung TV to read his Playstation and Blu Ray player only to find he was using a HDMI splitter.

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 April 2020 - 11:07 AM)

@  Sabrblade : (01 April 2020 - 08:58 PM)

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:51 PM)

Not to be confused with Leader I

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was Leader Uno

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was the OTHER Leader 1

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 March 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Or Sideways.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 March 2020 - 11:08 PM)

(But only pretty sure, not 100% sure.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (28 March 2020 - 09:26 AM)

Pretty sure y'all were thinking of Fortress Maximus yesterday.

Nevermore remarked over in the Transformers threads that the Australian Toy Fair is this coming weekend, perhaps we'll see a couple more reveals there?  It would definitely make an impact for the global relaunch to reveal the remainder of the wave at an international venue.

Yeeessh, good news of a sort: Jada toy is doing die-cast vehicles in two sizes and metal figurines.

I will definitely be picking up the vehicles - that is what I always wanted the old GIJoe Micromachine line to be. The figures are kind of cool too - I did have quite a few of the micro figures back in the day.

If we don't see anything related to these figures, even if it's just the three Classified retail releases then I wont hold out much hope for international releases :(

I ordered the exclusive Snake Eyes this morning off of Hasbro Pulse. After taxes and shipping, it was $49. Considering I spent $0 over the past few years on Joes, I'm OK with this.

 

Pretty hopeful I'll see the rest in stores. Can't wait for the rest of wave 1 reveal.

Depending on the quality of sculpt I might pony up for a ReAction Storm Shadow.

 

(I just wish Hasbro would hurry up and make a deal witn Funko or Super7 for some D&D ReAction stuffs)

The ultimate irony that the line that helped put the nail in Star Wars' 5 POA coffin should come back as 5 POA figures in the vintage Star Wars aesthetic.

 

We are truly in the darkest timeline.

I'd be up a few depending on how they turn out, just like Transformers.  I think Joe is REALLY fascinating in that context given its relation to that era of Star Wars, and probably a better fit than something like Aliens (which would more likely acquire a style akin to Kenner's 4.25 scale if produced back then).

 

Hopefully Super 7 won't repeat the the mistakes made by Gentle Giant, who went for "chronological releases" rather than the dynamic, popular, characters people wanted.

Take this with a grain of salt. Another site is listing information on a Retro Line at Walmart. Figures are listed at $12.93 each, while "Retro Vehicle Cobra HISS" is $26.82.

 

Unsure if this is a re-issue of O-ring figures, or what.

Yeah. I saw that and am curious. I suspect they'll be O-ring figures simply because that would follow the naming convention established by Star Wars where "retro" means "original-style", vs "Vintage" which means "Modern-sculpt/high-articulation". 

 

Don't think I'll be personally interested in that. I don't even need any more HISSes. I guess we could look back at all the ME vehicle releases to see what else might return (though many were modified or outright re-sculpted for the larger figures). It would be funny though if they re-released a Skystriker with a 2-person cockpit.

Probably o-ring figures.  This might be a boon to o-ring collectors, though.  Hasbro has long half assed their o-ring usage, but with changes in manufacturing locations and tool storage means they might be TRUE "recast" figures like the Retro Star Wars line or the Kenner Ghostbusters figures.  This would be a great chance to finally see a new production for the classic V2 Snake Eyes figure, whose tooling was last some 25 years ago.

 

As I recall from the various codes-

Tarantula is Snake Eyes

Scorpion is Storm Shadow

Darkling is Destro.

 

Not sure on the others, but Mantis feels like it might be Baroness.  Not sure about Mayfly or Mosquito, but I think it is safe that one of them is Cobra Commander.

From a purely selfish point of view, I hope they're o-rings. The last time JOE was fun for me was the reissues of the early 2000s.

 

I'm looking forward to the 6" stuff, but a line of reissues ala the TF one (although preferably not that expensive)? Yeah. I'd be all for that.

The screenshots indicated figures would be $12.96, the HISS Tank would be $29.something.  The tank is a bit pricy, but certainly in line with other "reissue" type products we've gotten recently.  But again, if Hasbro is actually restoring lost molds like the V1 Destro or V2 Snake Eyes, that would make the $13 price VERY attractive to long time collectors.

 

I know a good shape, complete, V1 Destro or V2 Snake Eyes probably sell for a LOT more than $13
