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?

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.

@  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.

@  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!

@  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)

@  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)

Trebuchets never go out of style.

@  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)

@  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^)

So, just in case you have not tried it, the VvV Jinx blindfold looks great on the white SDCC figure. I'll try to post pics later, and I will try it on the red Jinx when she arrives. icon-ironhide.gif

I'd like to see the pics.

My unmasked Jinx just arrived and I tried but it was putting too much force on the blindfold, and I didn't want to risk it.

Found the Retaliation Ninja 3-pack on clearance for $10 today at Target. I needed more Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow figures like I need an bunghole in middle of my forehead, but the Red Ninja makes a passable 30th Slice, and I've been hankering for that sugegasa. So $10 was a good enough price to make me forget that I wasn't going to buy into the Retaliation line.

Snake-Eyes sucks since he really can't hold his katana once you remove the band keeping it there.



I just can't get over how much nicer the three-pack versions of SE and SS are than their single-packed equivalents. I really prefer the alternate deco on that SS mold, and SE's vest. A bunch of swords and guns is also more to my liking than jetpacks or weird crossbow zipline-things. Plus, savings!

Still can't find a darned G.I. Joe Trooper anywhere. But the single-packed Red Ninja is only just starting to show up here, so there's hope.

Now that I have the two three-packs, Zartan, the black CC and a Cobra Trooper, I'm pretty much good re: the figures until next March. Just want to find a Joe Trooper or two. I do have some interest in the single-packed Roadblock (he of the thing fused to his hand), mainly because I like that there's actually a place to attach his mega-launcher TO him when he's holding it. That interests me, seems like a step up from the past. But I can wait until he shows up at Ross.

I saw so much coolness at Joecon that it simultaneously renews my optimism and makes me itch to get my hands on that later stuff!

There's only one wave shipping, so the Red Ninja shows up with everybody else. I suppose you'll just have to hope you luck out when a fresh case is put out. I've personally run across both versions of the Joe Trooper, the blue one at Wal-Mart and the tan one at Target.

I may just be lucky, I had no problem getting mine on either figure. For anyone else who is trying to do this, make sure you put the band on from the underside of the popped off head.

Thanks! Jinx's pics were shot with an iPhone in the bathroom. Kinda like a lot of other females who post their pictures online. icon-fire.gif

And you should open one. I really like the red version best, but one of the cards on each was not perfect, so I opened a red and a white. They are nice figures, even though the paint on maskless Jinx makes her look like she has a bit of a stash. icon-fire.gif

Got the two ninja 3-packs today at Target for $5.98 each.

That's almost worth it for the accessories alone, but beyond worth it for the one figure out of each pack I was willing to pay for. It's like I got Kamakura and Not-Slice at a discount and also got a free Roadblock, Beachhead, SE and SS to use for parts.

It's funny, I'd originally used him for parts for a different custom... but after a bunch of anti-ninja (or anti-anything fun, really) Joe fans started bashing him on another page, I gave it another look and put him back together.

It REALLY pulls off the "hi-tech ninja" look a lot more effectively than most Night Creeper figures.
Kinda wish I'd army built it.
