@  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.

@  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 - 06:50 PM)

@  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)

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 03:47 PM)

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

Maybe if I'm lucky, this'll mean a second round for the single-carded figures around here as well.

The local Wal-Mart got maybe a single case of the Sci-Fi wave, and due to the usual "me not getting paid on time" bit I missed them all.

Despite putting out pegs (and me pestering every week), mine never got a SINGLE case of GI Joe figures until Retaliation. I've pretty much given up on finding toys locally, given Walmart's handling of the past few years.
About the only stuff I get are movie tie in or Transformers (stock still cycles pretty good here)



With the survey, I made known my design for a PoC/30th Lt. Falcon and Pythona.

My top ten, if I can remember, I filled out the survey this morning were in no real order

Ninja force Scarlett
Overkill v1
Interrogator v1
Cesspool
Firefly in his green suit
Night Creeper Leader
General Hawk in his 90's flight suit
Some version of Sgt. Slaughter
The orange black and green BAT
...and I can't remember who else. Probably another 90's guy. hug, I should have put Metal Head. Damn it.

The entire wave is hard to find. I've yet to find any of his packmates. If you can find a full assortment of the five figures, I'll gladly snag the humans and let you keep the zombie.

I was horribly mentally blocked while answering that survey. So many of those ideas are ones I'm kicking myself for forgetting. But I guess there's only so many good ideas that would fit... I mostly put down DD stuff like the three-person core Red Shadows team, military-dress-uniform Joseph Colton [we don't have that kind of formal suit yet, I think?], a Plague Trooper armybuilder with lots of helmets/heads...

I saw a bunch of him (when he was out) I'll keep a lookout Chess.

Detour, were their any of his packmates you really wanted?

Widescope and/or some DEF members to keep Shockwave and Law company.
Ninja Force Night Creeper (with soft good feather cape, naturally)
Hydro-Viper

My kingdom for a modern Hydro-Viper.

I LOVED that figure. Love the Monster mask. Love the webbed hands and flippers. Loved the colors. WANT WANT WANT. icon-hotrod.gif

After that I put Mercer, the rest of the Cobra La stuff, the space pilot version of Sci Fi, and Robo-Joe just for Walky's responce.

TBC Hawk wore a dress uniform, and TBC Stalker's outfit could be regarded as another one.

In that sense, Hasbro could produce a generic dress uniform body and then just swap out heads and accessories.

No Walgreens, Rite Aids or CVS up here. The pharmacy market's already been cornered, and most of them don't bother with toys.

Yeah - there were a ton of cancelled/dream figures which you can vote on at Generals Joes. It's not an official Hasbro poll, but apparently they are gauging fan reaction (we've actually seen quite a few of the designer's customs from a number of years ago so it's worth a vote).

As for official, upcoming products - not much we haven't seen already, but there are a few new figs shown (TNI's index is messed up, the Joe stuff starts on page 5).
