@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 06:46 PM)

In case anyone's wondering.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 06:46 PM)

Also, she pronounces her own name "Zuh-see".

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 September 2019 - 03:04 PM)

I think I'd read a while back she was born in Berlin

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 September 2019 - 03:04 PM)

I thought Zazie Beetz was really fantastic in Deadpool 2. Really looking forward to seeing her in Joker.

@  Liege : (20 September 2019 - 12:05 PM)

Any sightings of Ratchet at U.S. Walgreens yet? A couple of stores around me have recently restocked their toy aisles but no Ratchets yet at those ones.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:54 AM)

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.

Which collecting community has the worst scalpers?

@  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.

@  Shrug : (12 September 2019 - 12:26 PM)

I managed to find about 2/3s of my goal Sega Genesis collection before the last price bump

@  Anonymous X : (12 September 2019 - 11:11 AM)

So relieved that I picked up most of my NTSC GameCube collection in 2010/11 before prices on the secondary market went bezerk...

@  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

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 September 2019 - 10:26 PM)

@  unluckiness : (11 September 2019 - 09:24 AM)

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

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)

fun and games

@  wonko the sane? : (09 September 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Depends entirely on what you use the computer for.

@  Steevy Maximus : (09 September 2019 - 11:52 AM)

Probably not

@  Benbot : (09 September 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Do I need an i7 on my new computer?

I found them in the wild way back when they first started hitting. One full set at one store and then a lone CC at one other store and nothing since.

As for other craziness, just snagged white and red Jinx for a Benjamin shipped. To stop myself from crying I figure I've spent less than had I bought all the exclusives I would have bought on HTS (since I'm not spending aftermarket for Bruticus or the HISS).

I mean, it still sucks that I missed her coming back up on HtS though.

I'm not gonna knock that. Whatever it takes not to get even more annoyed.

Having Zarana and the skystriker ripped from my cart last year jaded me to the whole experience, anyways. My apathy is my shield when it comes to these things now.

I think I got my Temple Snake-Eyes at a comic shop. Been a while.

It's weird, my area missed out on the last wave of both POC and 30th Anniversary...

Fortunately I only wanted two figures from the POC wave, and found one (Temple Snake-Eyes) at a comic shop.


No Dollar Generals up here, hence no Dollar General Joes. DePriest said at SDCC that he was going to look into improving distribution on them.

One of my Dollar Generals has three of the single-card Dusty figures, a single-card Tele-Viper, and some of the single-card Heroes figures from the first movie.

That's it.

Nobody else that I've been to has anything yet.

Man, the more that I read this thread, the more I realize how lucky I must have gotten with POC. I found pretty much everything in the wild, save for a few waves I ordered from BBTS.

I found a single, apparently random Shipwreck at DG about a month back, but not even a hint of anything since.

Same here. Got Waves 1-3 at retail, found scattered bits of Wave 4 at retail but already ordered them through BBTS, and Waves 5-6 I only got thanks to BBTS.

The one time I did see Shadow Tracker, it was at a Walgreens. That was also the only place I ever saw ROC Kamaukra and Nano Viper, too.

I preordered the hell out of the 30th anniversary figures, but it turns out I shouldn't have. I found PLENTY of the first two waves on store shelves, and even found each of the elusive Storm Shadow wave at least once.

Yeah, they're out, but I've only seen the regular versions, not the variants. Snagged a Cobra trooper, Cobra Commander, Storm Shadow, and Snake Eyes. If you see the old accessory-free Valor vs Venom crap on the shelves, however, might as well turn around since no Dollar General I've checked has put up the new stuff if there's still garbage on the rack.

Not just the VvV stuff, but the Combat Heroes. The rumor was those are supposed to be gone from any given store before the store receives its next batch of Joes. With that in mind, I suppose some stores might get the new ones in a couple of years. icon-waspy.gif

I can say that, thankfully, that much isn't true. I've seen the Combat Heroes at every Dollar General, and they don't halt the new stuff from being put out probably because they occupy different rack space. VvV stuff, on the other hand, seems to be on the hook where the new figures would go, so that makes more sense.

I can confirm this as well. Combat Heroes were everywhere, no matter the 3.75 offerings.
