@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.

@  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)

@  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?

@  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.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Though with the luck and caliber of leaders we've had of late in the darkest timeline, maybe it's too much to hope for.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM)

Just like democracy, it's not perfect but better than the present alternatives. Capitalism as it's practiced today won't be able to weather the coming wave of automation, though. Best to plan for it and hope for a gentle transition rather than the aforementioned collapse

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Capitalism is the worst amiright? Sent from my iPhone

@  Vexwing : (15 July 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Because the collapse is gonna be just great.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 PM)

Let's hope this is late stage and we're on the cusp of something better.

@  abates : (15 July 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Late stage capitalism is the absolute best.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 01:33 PM)

So, welcome to all retail, everywhere.

I got mine from Smalljoes... but there are already MULTIPLE reports of the wave showing up at Walmart.

Odd, I'm not seeing him listed on their site...

I guess they pulled them off after they sold out. BBTS just got their shipment in too...

Wow - I was excited until I saw it was "half off" their ten dollar higher than retail price. It's 34.99 at Target and Walmart regular price. TRU even has it for 39.99. Where did they come up with 44 dollars?

I mean yeah - it's still a good price and all, but a little misleading.

Yeah, they pretty much range from "okay" to "you paid money for this?" with a not-insignificant amount appearing to be essentially tracing over existing art. I've been comparing some of the artwork to something from a dollar store generic superhero coloring book.

The worst part is seeing how many people are basically going "so? I don't collect MOC". So what? You're paying above retail for packaged figures, and that means the package should look at least as good as retail regardless of whether you're part of the MOC segment. These don't, pure and simple.

They are some weird mixes too. Jinx's looks like they 'shopped someone's face into it compared to some of the other more [bad] cartoony faces of the other figures. Watch, we're going to find out they were all done by Larry Hama - on the backs of cocktail napkins. icon-fire.gif

Gah. That's some weird box art samples. Did they just get people who've never drawn Joe art before? Seems like coloring was trying to make up for wonky line art in most cases. But over did it and resulted in faces straight out of Elder Scrolls 4.

Unrelated, I hugging hate O rings. Also hope hot glue holds some torsos back together.

I bought a Techno Viper for myself so I will wait to open him first before I make a judgment on him.

Storm Shadow is really nice with the options, so I can see why people like him.

I guess it's really the Renegades figures I'm not that impressed with for one reason or another.

After the super realistic figures we've seen from PoC, the Renegades figs do seem toned down. That being said, I still think they're neat in their own right.

Yeah - I saw he's floating around for 15 bucks shipped now. Down quite a bit from the hundreds of dollars some chumps paid. I caved too and bought one. I'm not sure I need another Roadblock body, but the tats look pretty cool.

Based on BBTS it looks like he's one per (and sadly doesn't seem to be part of the revision case with the next wave of figures).

That's awfully tempting. Is this on eBay? I'm only seeing them around $30 at the moment.
