@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

Even if we pretend it's objective truth that they were both bad, then they were bad in very different ways.

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Sonic's previous movie design looked genuinely bad. The Transformers '07 designs just looked insufficiently like what certain loud and obnoxious parts of the fandom think Transformers are required to always look like.

Sure it made money but that doesn’t mean it has appealing character designs. Lot of god awful fugly faces in the Transformers movies.

@  Otaku : (12 November 2019 - 08:25 PM)

@Liege My issue with Transformers (2007) were elements I thought were unnecessary.  I know it was supposed to just be a joke, but I didn't ever need to hear about "Sam's Happy Time". >.> Which, being in awe of the first "live action" TF-film, didn't even register until I'd already purchased and watched it on DVD a few times (after seeing it in theaters 3 times).

@  Liege : (12 November 2019 - 08:22 PM)

For all the Bayisms in the 07 movie, it was tempered by Spielberg as producer. Designs aside it was an enjoyable popcorn blockbuster about a boy and his first car who happens to be an alien from another planet. They sequels are just Bay going unchecked after he proved how much bank he could bring in.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 November 2019 - 07:12 PM)

I didn't find the designs in the '07 movie to be that bad, personally. What got really offputting was how Cybertronians in general become such huge a-holes in the later films; the designs were very much secondary to their horrible personalities

@  Sabrblade : (12 November 2019 - 06:59 PM)

And yet, Transformers still broke the bank at the box office, opened up the brand to a whole new generation of fans, shot the brand up to mainstream appeal, and enabled all kinds of new collector-oriented lines and other avenues to come about. Not saying Sonic's movie will do the same for his series, but the 2007 TF movie certainly did more good than harm.

@  Bass X0 : (12 November 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Paramount changed Sonic due to fan backlash but refused to redo Transformers 2007 with new cgi appearances based on their classic forms everyone’s knows and loves, and can relate to. Trailer 1 Sonic is as appealing a design as 2007 Bumblebee...

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 02:14 PM)

I don't. They're a pain in the ass to repair.

@  Liege : (11 November 2019 - 11:22 PM)

Pro tip for anyone hunting the for the Walmart 35th exclusives: try the seasonal aisles rather than the toy section. I found the display with all the exclusives and a bunch of the reflector wave practically untouched amongst those novelty arcade machines and a bunch of frozen merch.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 November 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Although that does spark an idea for me. In a new continuity, Censere the Necrobot could be the herald Cityspeaker for Quintessa the Necrotitan just to play on their monikers utilizing Greek for dead, nekrós.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 November 2019 - 09:26 PM)

I hate to burst your bubble, Maximus Ambus, but 90% of things said in IDW turned out to be amnesiac half-rememberings courtesy of Adaptus or outright lies courtesy of Shockwave.

@  Jenny : (11 November 2019 - 08:54 AM)

The toy's designed to look like Wipe-Out, anyway.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 November 2019 - 08:14 AM)

Didn't they try to retcon that into a figure of speech because that connection went against everybody else's long-term plans?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 November 2019 - 03:53 AM)

There's still some connection given Trypticon was created by Mortilus.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 November 2019 - 12:12 AM)

Yeah that toy doesn't exactly look like Necrobot.

@  Sabrblade : (10 November 2019 - 08:24 PM)

But.... it's just "Necro" not "Necrobot".

@  TheMightyMol... : (10 November 2019 - 05:10 PM)

But why does the God of Death need a giant space kaiju? Wait, never mind, answered my own question.

@  Maximus Ambus : (10 November 2019 - 02:15 PM)

Yowza I just realised Titans Trypticon comes with Necro AKA Censere AKA Mortilus.

@  Nevermore : (10 November 2019 - 01:15 PM)

I... think the best equivalent would actually be the British "There is room for improvement".

@  Nevermore : (10 November 2019 - 01:15 PM)

There's always a sense of irony to it, but what the ratio between irony (you really failed) and straightworwardness (at least you achieved something) is depends on the situation and the speaker.

I considered army-building Red Fang at one point, but he was already out of stores (it was a complete fluke I found even one; at a Walmart in Vegas, of all places) and a little too pricey online.

But at the same time, the ROC Shockblast/Night Creeper 2-pack was hitting Ross for, like, $4 or whatever, so I just made Red Fang the leader of a bunch of Night Creepers and used the Shockblasts to make lazy rank-and-file-Joe customs.

I really don't get the hatred for the Neo-Viper body. I think it's a fine body base.

I get what you're saying about the swords, though. But personally I'm just really happy to have ninja swords that STAY in a figure's hands.

Review of the SDCC Jinx figures...

Packaging is pretty standard 25th style in a clamshell packaging. Nothing really to say here. The use of "Kim Arashikage" annoys the heck out of me... I know the reason for it, but in terms of silly workarounds, using the "file name" just takes all the fun out of things for me. It loses all the depth and mystique of the fiction and gives me a lady going to a costume party.

The back is different for each, which is an unexpected and nice touch. I found it disappointing that the file card doesn't explicitly mention her relation to Storm Shadow (they're cousins), as that was a major part of her character in the Marvel Comic.

The red suit is functional and... well, that's about it really. Once you appreciate the folds and lay of the "fabric", there's not a lot of additional detail. There are a few black highlights in the obvious and expected places and the dragon on the left shoulder carried over from the original figure. She doesn't have the footwear or nail polish of the original. The outfit is more in line with the traditional gi, which has resulted in a rather low neckline. To be honest, this is probably the only part of the figure I don't like, simply because I think it looks awkward to have a fully wrapped head with an exposed neck.

Jinx comes with a stand, her signature staff, two swords, and a sheath. Not a big kit, but it matches her original gear pretty well. Everything fits nicely in her hands. I've had some trouble with the stands though; it seems the holes in her feet may be a bit too shallow. It may not be apparent in the pics, but both figures have one sword blade painted mostly black. I'm unsure of the significance, if any.

The variant Jinx is in a white gi with a grey dragon motif on one arm and leg and red highlights. It's a very simple look that at once ties her to Storm Shadow yet is also immediately unique to her. The head is a very good sculpt with the hair tied back to minimize interference with her sheath. I don't find it has quite the range of movement I'd like, but it's a minor thing that only affects a few poses I tried.

This version comes with a kusari-gama instead of the staff, and I have to say I'm not pleased with the substitution. It's a thick weapon and she can't hold it very well. In fact, I'd say the hands are an issue with this figure in general; they are sculpted at an angle and pose that limit the way she can hold things. I'm generally not one to complain about articulation in "modern era" Joe figures... I appreciate all the cool poses, but I don't need every character to have double knees and rocker ankles (or even ankles at all). However, when a character is given those benefits and then has other parts limited in any way, it's very apparent and annoying.

Overall I like both versions of the figure. With other versions in the Retaliation line (eventually) and the GI Joe Club Figure Subscription Service (again, eventually), she makes for a nice SDCC exclusive without being the only way a fan can ever get the character. They are both well-done and simple without being lacking, with the variant being nice yet not something a collection is incomplete without.

The Pit works well when you use it like you did for your pictures - narrow, confined images. When viewed as a whole, it looks like a hot mess.

I got mine at 50% off, and it was worth it... sort of. I would have preferred a more structure-oriented look instead of the goofy transformer that tried too hard.

It doesn't speak well when the bases of yester-year are better than one developed with all-new tooling from the ground up.

So yeah. I don't expect to see a new base anytime soon at all. Hasbro seems to view bases/playsets in general as anathema - hence why we can't get a new Metroplex, and the closest thing we get is a "stand-up-to-transform" Optimus Prime.

The interesting part is that Dynamo, the guys behind Sigma Six and Xevoz, did work on that.

They posted control art on their website. It looked considerably more proportional to the figures in it. Not to mention each section "feels" more complete:

-ZacWilliam really wants to argue with Hasbro over Metroplex and co too as I think there are a number of factors that will make them always work beyond their being playsets... Primarily ALSO being a super powerful action figure on their own AND coming with smaller figures included that use their base mode.

Since the SDCC Marvel Helicarrier sold, that may be a viable option for Joe bases in the future, but the regular store shelves definitely won't tolerate them anymore. I think it's fair to say that anything over $20 in the vehicle department isn't going to sell much at all.
