So, welcome to all retail, everywhere.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Oh, and Greenpeace also conducted a protest at a German Amazon facility, to protest against Amazon's practice of throwing customer returns in the trash.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Right, because with Amazon, it's just the employees that have to step in dog shit while having no space to breathe.[/slightexaggeration]

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 July 2019 - 01:03 PM)

At least I can use Amazon without losing the ability to breath or step in dog shit.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:58 PM)

Considering that Amazon is the new Walmart...

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

All of my best wishes go out to the brave women and men who have the balls (and ovaries) to go on strike at an Amazon facility in the US.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:38 PM)

Speaking of. Not only are we in Germany on strike today, but so is the fulfillment center in Shakopee, Minnesota!

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 12:36 PM)

Overnight delivery is the right of all sentient beings.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:34 PM)

(and is it sexist of me to assume that a character named "Amazon Prime" would be feminine?)

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:34 PM)

Whenever she was summoned, she would arrive the next day?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (15 July 2019 - 12:32 PM)

The Scioli and Barber TF vs Joe series mentioned an Amazon Prime.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:22 PM)

Meanwhile I'm wondering why no one's come up with a fan character named "Amazon Prime". I mean, today IS her special day...

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 11:20 AM)

The Wallet-Eater.

@  unluckiness : (15 July 2019 - 08:44 AM)

Woah. Unicron broke the site.

@  MEDdMI : (14 July 2019 - 10:08 PM)

Is that what kids are calling it these days?

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 07:33 PM)

Ssshh, you'll get us both "dealt with".

@  RichardT1977 : (14 July 2019 - 07:28 PM)

No, but I did *read* it from you...

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 03:06 PM)

The first real long-term space outposts belong to the Illuminati, but you didn't hear that from me.

@  RichardT1977 : (14 July 2019 - 02:50 PM)

Er, in SF I mean.

@  RichardT1977 : (14 July 2019 - 02:50 PM)

Yeah, the first long-term manned space outposts have traditionally been mining colonies and the like.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 12:19 PM)

Okay, but......do they have to be willing to be sent up?

@  Rycochet : (14 July 2019 - 11:10 AM)

A king isn't a king without subjects.

@  Rycochet : (14 July 2019 - 11:09 AM)

The rich will never flee to space until there's enough an underclass up there so they have someone to do all the jobs they won't. Same reason seasteading never takes off.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 10:45 AM)

Do we have to let them come back?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 July 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Well, it's only going to be the ultra-rich who are able to go for the first couple decades at least, so I doubt anyone's going to care much

@  Nevermore : (14 July 2019 - 10:32 AM)

They could be standing on the surface of the moon, insist they're in the middle of a giant set, and take off their helmet to "prove" it.

@  Nevermore : (14 July 2019 - 10:31 AM)

Assuming these are genuinely convinced conspiracy morons and not just internet trolls, I would assume "not a lot".

@  Nevermore : (14 July 2019 - 10:31 AM)

I wonder how all these recent private and international space travel programs are going to affect those craziacs who insist that the Earth is flat/the moon landing was forged/outer space isn't real etc.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

@  unluckiness : (14 July 2019 - 09:17 AM)

Have you considered a trapdoor spike pit?

@  unluckiness : (14 July 2019 - 09:17 AM)

It's not the worst gift but not evryone may want one given rising fuel prices.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2019 - 08:22 AM)

Is a fire pit too literal for a house warming gift?

@  Noideaforaname : (14 July 2019 - 07:43 AM)

Welp, just realized everyone's been talking about Halle BAILEY this week, not BERRY. (so that's why i haven't been seeing CatFishWoman memes...)

@  MEDdMI : (14 July 2019 - 07:08 AM)

Oh, sounds like fun.I wonder if I have a decent mic lying around.

@  Pinkcolliebot : (13 July 2019 - 07:26 PM)

Casting call for TF Roll Out Shorts! https://www.behindth...y/casting-call/

@  Kalidor : (13 July 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Talking about the show in chat is absolutely fine - posting spoilers on anything that's current season isn't tho

@  Arazyr : (13 July 2019 - 07:05 AM)

Yeah, I'm a season or so behind, so I would definitely appreciate no spoilers. 8^)

@  Sabrblade : (12 July 2019 - 10:21 PM)

Still, though, yeah, we do have a thread for the show. Best to use it.

@  Sabrblade : (12 July 2019 - 10:20 PM)

I think Nevermore once said he was a few episodes behind, so I don't think he's talking about tonight's new episode.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 July 2019 - 09:53 PM)

Yeah, you realize we have a designated thread for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., right?

@  MEDdMI : (12 July 2019 - 09:35 PM)

Not that I care about the show, but I'd be pretty annoyed about spoilers there. Please post it in a thread.

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 06:05 PM)

Okay, this is getting ridiculous. The opening of the episode was a deliberate play with clichés, but unfortunately, the rest of the episode that's played straight is also riddled with them...

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:45 PM)

Also, why are they so pissed that Deke built a start-up company? What would they have preferred - him continuing being a freeloader?

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:44 PM)

But now everyone keeps picking up the idiot ball. Geez.

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:43 PM)

That's what I always loved about the show - creative ways to play with tropes and subvert them by making the characters smarter than your typical fictional character doofus.

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:43 PM)

Why is everyone suddenly genre-blind?

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Wasn't it just last season when Mack was so super-genre-savvy that he insisted on NOT SPLITTING UP?

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:42 PM)

And again, too many characters acting like idiots.

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:41 PM)

Seriously, Agents of SHIELD? Now you're straight ripping off "Alien"?

I ordered the Arctic 2pack because I really kinda need that BAT. I'd like two of him but darn it I already have 2 extra Snow. Jobs. :p


-ZacWilliam, they couldn't have packed it with Frostbite or something...

I'm still horrifically sad they didn't use the oppurtunity to FINALLY use the Roc Arctic Duke tooling, swap in a new head, and give us a new sculpt inspired Frostbite.  Heck, the other 3 sets got kitbashes, why not the Arctic Set?

I might get that Ice BAT.  Great deco and straight arm firing an M249... awesome.

Agreed that yet *another* Snow Job kills my desire to buy the 2-pack immediately.

Nope, not out yet. Viperskingdom just gets what "falls out the back of the truck" in China... So he's got the Arctic BAT set and the ladies' set already.

 
 

There have been some sightings for the second wave of two-packs however, at least according to folks on Hisstank.

It begins! Hah, out of this entire 50th line up this was the only 2pack I wanted. Sure it would've been nice to get Leatherhead, but I'm not as eager to get him as I am this pair. Never got Snow Job from the POC line before prices ballooned stupidly over here, and that BAT will inaugurate a wave of environment-specific BAT customs from me, so if anybody does see this in their area, let's make a deal. :)

Oh, and I'm rather fond of Venomous Maximus, and that series in general. I folded him into my weird Joeverse by making him part of the Serpentor cloning program, eventually going head to head with a fellow clone who did a heel-face turn as General Philip Rey. Even did a custom that amounted to transplanting a lot of the original figure's parts and gear onto a Serpentor body.

Is there anyone out there who does a Joe-sized Wesley Snipes head that doesn't have sunglasses? It seems every custom parts-maker out there does a Blade head, but the only one I've found without the glasses is (ironically?) by Glassman, and with respect to the guy I'm not keen on throwing $8 at him when his sample is obviously full of bubbles.

I remember GoodToGo/Trigate/SlayerDesigns used to have one sans glasses but a Blade sculpt showing off the fangs too, so that probably wouldn't be good. If that's not an issue with you, though, check http://shop.theangelforge.com , he bought up a lot of the old Slayer master molds.

Thanks! I did do my best to match the original character's looks, although liberties had to be taken with the head.

 

I just... kept changing so much trying to get it just right. Two years of Black Dragon attempts.

And here's another non-ARAH Joe character I've had in the works for a long-arse time. I'm not 100% pleased with him, especially with the skin-tone matches, but even with a custom paint mix this was the best I could get.

Sigma 6's Long Range:

Obi-Wan. Best head I could get, tbh. Long Range is a tough guy to match in facial features.

Truth be told the more I look at my head choice the more it reminds me of Extreme's Ballistic rather than Long Range.

Long Range's head needs only 3 things.

1.  A doucher's face

2.  Black Hair

3.  Ponytail

 

So I say slap some sculpty on an EpII Anakin head and paint it black.

(Joke)

 

Hmmm, now that I think about it, that last Punisher (Wave 19) head from the Marvel Universe line would make a great base.

Ooh, yeah, that Punisher head with a pony tail probably would be pretty good - excellent Steven Segal look. Also sideburns - he needs the side burns, but they can be painted on.

Dunno if Wave 19 is the same thing I have, but... Sorry, no. Don't see that one working. WAY too scowly. Gonna keep that one for a dude whose bio makes him out to be as nasty as that facial expression would indicate.

I have some ideas for some customs I want to do, but I'm drawing a blank when it comes to codenames.

Both of them are Joes, and to some extent they'd be comedy relief characters.

One of them would be an F-19 Phantom II pilot. He's got a degree in engineering, he's one of the best pilots in the Air Force, and has actually undergone astrnaut training. He's naturally curious about the world and can be quite charitable at times. However, he's comparable to Justy Tylor ("Irresponsible Captain Tylor") or Duo Maxwell ("Gundam Wing") in that he's usually the least professional man of whatever outfit he's with and seemingly gets by on as much dumb luck and personal charm as he does legit skill and wisdom.

The other would be his tsundere significant other. Officially, she's a member of the public affairs section of the unit that he's officially assigned to. In reality, it's a cover so that she can work as military intelligence (and if needs be, internal affairs). She's like Yuriko Star or Hilde (same shows) in that she makes a point of being professional in all things, something that on the surface leads to some very loud arguments with you-know-who. However, the reality of the situation is that they've known each other since childhood and she's been following him around ever since out of a (somewhat misguided) sense of loyalty due to his having once done something massively heroic on her behalf; she *knows* that he can be awesome if he puts his mind to it, but is frustrated because he doesn't always do so.

Any ideas for code names?

Thanks.
