I don't suppose the allspark has any criminal lawyers from Georgia. ;P

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2019 - 10:30 AM)

O never hated it, the whole thing was an Indiana Jones movie. I didn't care for the CGI, but that's just nature of the beast.

@  Paladin : (19 July 2019 - 07:58 AM)

sidebar- has enough time passed that we can stop irrationally hating "Crystal Skull" yet?

@  Telly : (18 July 2019 - 09:18 PM)

after 38 years and i dont know how many viewings, today is the first time i noticed indiana jones doesnt use a revolver in the bar fight in raiders...

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  Locoman : (18 July 2019 - 05:11 PM)

isn't that just Modern Family

@  Foffy : (18 July 2019 - 04:45 PM)

that's right. my gym teacher is a clown. new series coming to disney channel next fall

@  Foffy : (18 July 2019 - 04:44 PM)

all these clowns are making me run really fast.

@  Sabrblade : (18 July 2019 - 12:10 PM)

All this awesome SDCC news is really making these boards run slowly.

@  Shrug : (16 July 2019 - 06:07 PM)

It's absurd how happy I am that a post of mine made the front page of Reddit.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2019 - 05:46 PM)

Aww, shucks.

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:45 PM)

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 05:43 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2019 - 05:40 PM)

@  Patch : (16 July 2019 - 05:39 PM)

@  Patch : (16 July 2019 - 05:39 PM)

It's techno-organic corn

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:26 PM)

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:38 AM)

Would you like some dressing to go with your word salad?

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

yes; it now goes "shit piss hug *BLEEP* ^$@^ motherhuger **** turd fart encyclopedia & Socialism."

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:24 AM)

This is an American site, but isn't that unnecessarily severe language? IIRC it's one of the top four offensive pejoratives to English people

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

Yup yup. The other exclusive Jinx is the unmasked in white robes.

But yes: in theory we could have four Jinxes this year including the club version.

Worst part is if you buy any two at the same time you can't bitch about distribution till Hasbro says your name.

Yes it was at Toy Fair that the SDCC Exclusives (2 different Jinxs and the HISS with Destro & BAT) were announced.

I know as I was there and reported it here (MrBlud is just out of the loop icon-fire.gif).

Last night I packed up the Joes for storage/moving... Rough estimate is that I have between 325 and 350 "modern era figures. Considering that I don't do same-character multiples, troop-building is limited to 3-4 versions of less than half a dozen types, have a "universal" setup, and even taking out the 75 or so customs/repurposes... that's a good swath of characters. Something close to 250 "unique names" in about 5 years.

Two observations about this:
1. Way to go Hasbro.
2. People who complain about character selection are just being picky and whiny.

Found these and picked them up for my older brother Chris.
DSC03224.jpg

They had a Snake Eyes, a Duke, and a Roadblock he didn't want too. I think they had two of RB & SE and 1 of each of the other characters. They also had the bikes, 2 of each of the 3 packs, some roleplay stuff, and what I believe is a HISS Tank.

They also had the new Batman & Spiderman Movie toys.

So have there been any sightings of a Joe trooper with a green cloak and helmet?

Grr, me either. Ever since my closest TRU built their shiny new store that's 75% Babies R Us and a quarter TRU they went to crap. Used to be they got everything and got it in a decent time. Now they're as bad as every other TRU in the city. grumble grumble. icon-waspy.gif

Saw my first J2 merch today.

Sadly it was just those big doofy looking unposeable quick-draw-sound figures of the Rock and Snake-eyes that no older fan cares about and no kid is ever gonna think are fun.


-ZacWilliam, put them up there with unposeable figures perminently attatched to quads in the "toy no one ever actually wants but they keep making anyway" stakes.

The only Joe figures I've seen are a couple remaining 12" figures at Walmart, a couple clearanced Scarletts at Target, and the Combat Heroes toys at Dollar General.

Other than that, I've encountered bare GI Joe shelves everywhere I've gone.

*Sigh*
