You don't even hear a hint of an accent, and she only very rarely chooses some odd wording where she probably wasn't familiar with the more appropriate alternative due to its relative obscurity.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:41 AM)

Just watched what's possibly the most relaxed interview ever of a German Youtuber interviewing Zazie while walking around Berlin. Turns out she was born in Berlin and spent quite some time in Germany.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:39 AM)

Actors and actresses I had no idea speak fluent German, part 4.231: Zazie Beetz from Deadpool 2.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:14 PM)

It's too bad it's like this because some of what they're doing with tiny cars is pretty cool, but I'm not willing to sign up for that f-ing hassle.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:13 PM)

At this point I'm trying to decide how much of a markup I'm willing to pay some scalper scum or if I should just say to hell with it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 September 2019 - 02:11 PM)

That is pretty much the constant story with Hot Wheels. Anything you might actually want has most likely been picked clean and marked up.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:02 PM)

I've been watching some Youtube Hot Wheels videos out of boredom and discovered there exists a new car that just came out maybe a month ago that looks just like one I had when I was little, and I've been looking around hoping to get it. Slim picking everywhere, but online there are a slew of sellers asking for 3 and 4x the retail price, plus a hefty shipping markup.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 01:59 PM)

Oh, that explains the problem I've encountered with finding one little car

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 September 2019 - 01:31 PM)

Oh boy. I work at Target, and literally every single morning, there are two or three guys outside who make a beeline straight to the Hot Wheels.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 September 2019 - 09:55 PM)

I've never read the source material and don't know much about it, but I enjoyed the first film quite a bit, and found the second alright

@  Sabrblade : (17 September 2019 - 09:49 PM)

The first movie was definitely not for me. I flat out hated it. Didn't even bother with the sequel.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2019 - 05:02 PM)

I liked the first movie a lot and enjoyed the original volume of the book, and the way they were developed in parallel was really interesting. It all got super extra unpleasant as soon as they went back though. I don't remember really whether the initial sequels are "good" or not, but either way both the second movie and the second run of the book quickly demonstrated that the property sure wasn't for me.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i have a real hard time offering praise of anything connected to an utter shitstain like Mark Millar.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2019 - 01:23 PM)

Kick Ass 2 was okay for what it was, a sequel to a film that was okay, just okay. It had a good performance from Nic Cage while the sequel had Jim Carrey who decided he didn't want to promote it after one of america's regularly scheduled massacres.

@  Benbot : (17 September 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Was Kick Ass 2 really that bad? I never got around to seeing it, but after watching the first movie again the other day, I'm thinking about it.

@  unluckiness : (12 September 2019 - 12:54 AM)

I have fond memories of it since it was the last console Mario Kart that didn't have the ridiculous pre-race cart assembly

If you owe, you're expected to actually pay it at the time you file, before they even process your return

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 September 2019 - 11:10 PM)

If you file electronically, I find you usually get your refund within a couple weeks

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Well, lucky it took less than two months for me. For a little over 200 Euros.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Pretty much, yeah. Canada revenue will be all up your ass if you earn less than 200K and owe tax, but your refund is basically "duke nukem forever".

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Whereas if you overpaid and they have to refund you, they will take their sweet time to let you know.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Like, here in Germany, if the tax authority responds to your tax report quickly, you can rest assured they want more money.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Do tax authorities in other countries base their time to respond to filed tax reports on whether they owe or are owed as well?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 11:13 AM)

Check what the requirements are for your cad program, and try to beat them by about 20%, and understand that software requirements have been stable for a few years: not really keeping up with the advancements in hardware. Unless you're doing something SPECIFIC which requires ludicrous amounts of power, just give your self a cushion on hardware and don't bother going whole hog.

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 10:16 AM)

What I'm currently using is an i5 2018 Surface Laptop. My current desktop is all but dead. I think in the end affordability will win out over specs. I need to use CAD programs, but I'm a student, not a professional.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 10:06 AM)

Okay. Whats the specs on the I7 and what are you currently using?

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 09:23 AM)

Shouldn't be. I literally just built it. Not even three weeks ago even.

And on a down note, it looks like both the black ninja and the Cyber-Ninja lost their alternate heads. Massive bummer, IMO. Especially the Cyber-Ninja losing the Wraith head.

You giddy goat, you. icon-blitz.gif

Still, these pictures are nice. The lighting and spacing on the displays is better than it was at Joecon so you can see some things better (like the complete lack of alternate heads on the black ninja and Cyber-Ninja!).

And man, the women of Retaliation really know how to accessorize better than the men. icon-fire.gif
Have you seen the kickass weapons loadout Lady Jaye has?

Oh, and they mistakenly switched Firefly and Beachhead on the 3-pack displays! icon-fire.gif

Yeah - fortunately I saved my receipt and will be returning crappy Duke and a Cobra Trooper tomorrow. No ankles is one thing, but warped ankles plus no stand makes it worse still. I could only get my other Trooper to stand like he'd just been punched in the stomach.

Anyway - the Night Landing is pretty darn awesome, the the Eel doesn't look right without some red on him though - he just looks like Torpedo.

I can't help but feel like they should've used the unrelease "Arctic Diver Ripcord" body that never came out during POC for the Eel.

Also, the Ninja Combat Cruiser and the Tread Ripper have been found out there.

These are the two vehicles (aside from the Cobra Night Landing) I'm most intrigued about.

I've used that Duke for a Lazy Custom.

Head: Resolute Arctic Duke w/Renegades Ripcord's goggles.
Body arms: Retaliation Duke w/PoC Steel Brigade Bandoleer
Legs: Resolute Stalker's, since the green matches up
Weapon: I gave him the gun that's from Battlefield 2142 (comes with Paris Pursuit Baroness and PoC City Strike Beach Head)

He's my Lazy Mirage, might give him more tech looking legs when I find a spare pair.

Just for kicks, I decided to try how Retaliation Kamakura would look with the more traditional ninja sash and chest strap.

Does anyone here have both the Snake-Eyes motorcycle set and Firefly motorcycle set from the Retaliation line?

If so, could you get me a photo of what the two figures look like with their heads swapped?

I was thinking of doing an LBC Kamakura by putting Firefly's head on SE's body, and was debating what I could do in reverse.

Thanks.

So you want to pay MORE.
To get a Kamakura with a whopping SEVEN POINTS OF ARTICULATION.
Pre-posed to ride a motorcycle and do very little else.

Yep and that's fine in my opinion. Twenty-five for a vehicle plus regular, articulated driver is fine. Twenty for a vehicle and gimped lump of plastic is not. And more importantly eight dollars for a single-carded, gimped lump of plastic is insulting.
