@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 December 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

@  Paladin : (03 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

@  Benbot : (03 December 2019 - 11:34 AM)

@  Patch : (02 December 2019 - 05:52 PM)

@Benbot Do they have a soy-free version? Like maybe just "Lent?"

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 02:03 PM)

Just occurred to me 'Autobot' Megatron happened in Target 2006.

@  Benbot : (02 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

@  Paladin : (02 December 2019 - 10:01 AM)

i prefer free-range human usually. pain in the ass to hunt though...

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 December 2019 - 09:42 AM)

If your human is all bones, you may have purchased a skeleton by accident. Contact your grocer to inquire about exhange policies.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 09:31 AM)

Vegans are categorised as human therefore just fall under Soylant, they are usually all bones.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:47 PM)

Cause... that latter one is technically all burgers anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:46 PM)

So... a burger made without meat, or a burger made with the meat taken from a vegan?

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 December 2019 - 04:22 PM)

I had a vegan burger last week, this week I'll give a vegan steak a shot.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

a proper paradox would have broken the board. Nice try though.

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 November 2019 - 01:47 AM)

I've got the admit. tubi tv is great. It's got a lot of stuff.. Including Super Sentai.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There is frankly no better place to (legally) find schlock on the internet for free than Tubi TV

I say they're goofy now, but I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't have bought them in '95. And Star Brigade anything. Hell, I'd still buy Star Brigade stuff now and that puts me in a teeny tiny minority, probably tinier because I really liked the Lunartix.

I bought Shadow Ninjas. I would've bought Ninja Commandos.

I must admit I was a bit surprised Zartan never got a Shadow Ninjas release.


Also, I don't care about multiple ninja organizations working with Cobra. The one ninja thing that bugged me was Firefly suddenly being a ninja after never having shown aspects of being a ninja before. Even moreso when he revealed he was the Faceless Master even though all hints pointed to ZARTAN being said Faceless Master. Eesh.

As for Scarlett suddenly being a ninja, it's funny because in a comic where everyone was a ninja... Scarlett's first Ninja Force tale was all about how she was mad that she was nothing more than an "honorary ninja" to the rest of the guys. All the while sporting her new Ninja Force costume.
But honestly, her becoming a ninja makes sense. She was already proficient in martial arts and dating a ninja, so why wouldn't she take up ninja training from him and his BFF as a result?

You're far too young to be this bitter and angry at the world....

So this came to fruition:
QUOTE
Hello all you G.I. Joe Fans!

The FSS will go live today. You can check the club site later for the url. Thanks for your patience while we got this finished. The system is very simple from the user perspective. The complicated part is the part you don't see as we have to be able to installment bill, change shipping docs, change cc info, etc. The admin side is VERY complicated.

I hope that the information below will answer most of your questions. If you have more, use the link at the club site GIJoeClub.com and we will answer and post them at the FAQ.

Thanks again for your support and patience!

1. You must be a member of the G.I. Joe Collectors? Club to take advantage of the Figure Subscription Service.

2. There is NO reason to rush the site or be in a hurry as this is a build to order system. We will build as many as you order, so we cannot run out. YOU CAN ORDER AS MANY AS YOU WANT, there is no limit.

3. What you do need to be concerned about is the closing date of the subscription service, which ENDS on September 4th at midnight.

4. You can either pay In Full or by Installment. There will be 3 installments. When you subscribe and choose pay by Installment, you will be billed for the first two months? shipments. Then sometime during the second month, you will be billed for the 3rd and 4th months? shipments and sometime during the 4th month you will be billed for the final 2 months? shipments.

5. Your free surprise 13th figure will come with your final shipment during the 6th month.

6. The figures will be shipped in random order. All members receive the same figures each month. The figure pairings will not be preannounced. So if you don?t mind, when you get your shipment each month, PLEASE do not go online and tell what you received. We want each shipment to be a surprise for as many members as possible.

7. The cost is $294 if Paid In Full (plus shipping) or three Installments of $98 (plus shipping). Please note that there is a $3 online processing fee for each billing. We take Visa, Discover or MasterCard. Unfortunately we cannot accept Money Orders or Checks for this offer.

8. If you pick a shipping service that does not include insurance or if you don?t pick the insurance, we do not have any responsibility for replacement of lost or damaged or misdirected orders.

9. If you move or need to change your credit card during the program, you can log into your account and change it there. This will change all of your future FSS billings and shipments. We will also be sending you reminders to check your address and cc before each billing/shipment goes out. We are not responsible for shipments that are lost due to incorrect shipping information on file.


10. We are waiting on the final schedule from China so we don?t know exactly when the first figures will ship. We hope it will be by Christmas. We will announce this as soon as we get the final schedule.

11. Some of the figures (single figures) MAY be available in the Club Store after the subscriber?s figures ship. These will be at a price of $32 per figure. There is no guarantee of availability of any of the figures in the club store. If you want to ensure getting these limited edition figures, you need to subscribe to the service.

For 13 figures that averages at about 23$ a figure. Too bad shipping's tacked on top of that.

But this is the crowner.

They're really serious with this.
I know the Club has this inexplicable hard-on for surprises, but geez. First of all, not a chance in hell that'd ever happen, and second of all, WHY. This subscription service has endured countless delays and on top of that they not only won't reveal the release order but they want people not to share the info.

More Ninja's are always welcome, especially Nightcreepers.

I wish I could agree but this version is just ill-fitting. The original 25th Night Creeper was built on a 25th Anniversary Snake-Eyes chest, which if you'll compare to later torsos was ridiculously short (offset by the long legs). The chestplate is made to cover the pectorals and stomach, made to fit on that torso. Much like the Cyber-Viper before, using that torso on a longer torso just ends up making it look awkward, which is how it ends up on the Retaliation SE base of that new Night Creeper.

Also, I really don't like that head and the floppy removable head thingie.
I'd have preferred seeing the Ninja Force Night Creeper design instead. Or the Spy Troops one.


I'm not picky about any Night Creeper version. Just so long as he has all the articulation bells and whistles ( I'm liking the Red Ninja we got this year, need more than one though).

Ninja Force Night Creeper, I've mentioned more than enough times. But he's gotta have a soft goods cloak off the back. Like the SW Vintage Gamorrean Guard except not as bushy.

Spy Troops, yes please. I liked that design, not the proportions. Would be terrific if he came with the scuba gear, it was always less Wet-Suit more Wet-Works.


SO long as they are retail or retailer exclusives. I don't want to pay through the nose via the club. Think of the overseas fans.

#6 is just bizarre. #8 bugs me, too, just because if you have regular shipping and somehow get skipped over (which I had to screw around with the TFCC about one year) or forgotten, you're screwed.

And the price tag on this terrifies me about what the Transformers one might run, but I was in the minority thinking that a subscription thing was a stupid idea in the first place. I'm also kind of confused as to why they won't honor a check or even a money order, which is actual, real money as opposed to credit.

Not really?

Because if that concept case of Hasbro's taught us anything, it's that they're still willing to plan and develop characters used in the FSS. They won't look like Fun Pub's versions, but who knows? Maybe fans will like them better.

And #6 is bizarre and not going to happen, but I can't see what's wrong in asking. They want an air of surprise around these figures to try to make it as exciting as possible for fans. One way of doing that is asking fans not to blab about what's currently shipping... A bit futile, but if even a handful of fans get to have that "Oh wow, it's this guy!" moment, cool.

#8 is a doozy, but I imagine they're a bit concerned that people might take advantage of them there. And just keep saying "I didn't get mine" in order to get free figures. Stuff does get lost in the mail, I know (I need to make sure I'm caught up now on both TCC and GIJCC magazines after not receiving an issue or two at the beginning of the year), but I've heard fans boasting about abusing the honor system before (Remember when Howlback came out and had two of the same missile? So Takara Tomy offered a replacement set? I've overheard fans saying how they claimed they ordered 3 or 4 Howlbacks just so they could get free weapons.)

And the over all price is expensive. But breaking that down to the individual price, that's right around where I was expecting it.

Yeah, I find myself less and less interested on the whole. Too many sacrifices and dull choices for me. On one hand it's perfect for what it is - a little something extra for club members. But I don't think it's enough to make me join up for starters and then pay the extra money on top. He-man subs have kind of ruined me on the whole "pay a bunch of money for stuff you don't want to get what you do" thing. Even if these were retail releases I probably wouldn't buy all of them. Jinx, Big Boa and Dice are really the only three I'm a little bummed to miss. Quarrel, the BAT and Tan Grunt I'd pick up if I saw them and the rest are ho-hum to boring. My Covergirl custom looks as good as that one (better imo since lets face it - she needs cleavage for comic/toon accuracy icon-arcee.gif ). Iron Klaw would be good but his head just isn't right. The beret doesn't fit right, yet the bare head is oddly bulbous to give the beret something to sit on, so it's messed up too.

*edit: It's funny that BBTS sold out since the club has stated they'd make as many as people buy. I guess BBTS has to weigh how many Sure Fires and Barrel Rolls they're willing to sit on to have more Jinx/Dice/Big Boas.

*edit 2: Ok, BBTS'd Jinx and Dice. If Big Boa pops back up again I'll probably snag him too and consider it a win on the whole. While I could have potentially sold off the others, I'm paying for the convenience of not needing to.

The women and the cobras really interest me. The generic looking Joe dudes... not so much. Hm.

There's some neat stuff in the FSS but not "join the club and sign up for the FSS" levels of neat.

You're far too young to be this bitter and angry at the world....

I'm reading that with Roy's voice. Heck, I read everything you post in a laconic Irish accent.

Yeah, I'm not a club member yet. Plus... I'm on a damn limited budget, and I've got other toys to get, too. So I think I'll stick to the cheaper stuff and pass on the sub, as much as I want some of it.
