Bet a lot of military people won't want to work this monday. ;(

@  Pennpenn : (21 January 2018 - 07:27 AM)

It seems sort of intuitive for a lot of people because it's the first day in the week that you're working.

@  Nevermore : (21 January 2018 - 04:54 AM)

Germany considers Monday the first day of the week.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

The judge obviously had a more material motive than the one he claimed, there need to be some serious investigation of that case.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 05:04 PM)

The reason is even worse. :(

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 04:34 PM)

That moron is a shame to his profession.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 09:34 AM)

I just think a Judge going on and Jury Tampering, trying to make the Jury think a sex taffiker is innocent is sickening. *won't say why he did that as that goes in P&R*

@  Sabrblade : (20 January 2018 - 09:21 AM)

Heh, the schedules for my work weeks begin with Saturday

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2018 - 07:01 AM)

Thing about the US is... you can say that any time you want as much as you want. You're still going to get shot, but it might not be because you said that though.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 02:20 AM)

You just did.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 02:18 AM)

Can I just say that right now... I hate the USA?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

There are languages where the days are named for numbers and Sunday is "one". Like Arabic.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 01:31 AM)

Isn't it sort of a religious thing for Sunday to be the start of the week but most people just go with the first day they go to work for the week?

@  unitremover : (20 January 2018 - 01:02 AM)

I feel like I've known plenty of Americans who'd say Monday is the first day of the week.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

Personally Monday will always be the first day of the week for me. The notion that Sunday is somehow the first day of the week seems completely nonsensical to me.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

I'm fairly sure it is in Australia, but that tends to get blurred because of US influence.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:19 AM)

(It's Sunday here in the U.S.)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:18 AM)

Anyone here live in a country where Monday is considered the first day of the week?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 08:40 PM)

Maybe?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

But do they search barf?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

Under water, the fish don't stink.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 07:42 PM)

I read that at first as "Everyone is a fish...."

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2018 - 06:08 PM)

Everyone has a fetish, I guess.

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 05:56 PM)

I parsed it as "search barf" at first.

@  Robowang : (19 January 2018 - 02:54 PM)

@  MEDdMI : (19 January 2018 - 12:14 PM)

But did you get a Snowbombcyclopsragnarokdoomstorm like the US NE got last week?

@  Nevermore : (19 January 2018 - 11:40 AM)

Netherlands? We got one hell of a storm here in Germany the other day too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2018 - 01:59 AM)

When that happens in Cocoa Beach there's always someone getting out their surfboard.

@  CORVUS : (19 January 2018 - 12:04 AM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (18 January 2018 - 06:27 PM)

Who sings the first part of the GIJoe The Movie theme song? (Cobra) Sounds so familiar.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 04:54 PM)

What ya getting?

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Yay! My package from BBTS is in canada! I might even get it this week!

I'm wondering if one of the Jokers is a TRU exclusive: the one I went to had tons of White Jacket Joker, and has a differently-styled Suicide Squad logo (black with ranbow sparkles around it, compared to the white/silver logo on the lone Deadshot I saw).

I really can't figure these things out. Amazon claims the evening-gown Harley is an Amazon exclusive.

 

So if those are both true, you need two exclusives from two different stores to build Croc's jacketed arms and hands.

Some early SDCC stuff:

 

From Mattel, we've got several new Collect-And-Connect lines featuring characters like Dr. Psycho, Wonder Girl, King Shark, Reaper (from Batman: Year Two), and a plethora of DCTV and TDKR figures.

 

http://news.toyark.c...ckmaster-211968

 

 

And from DC Collectibles, lots more Icons stuff that I can't decide if I care about or not, but much more importantly, Superman: The Animated Series figures.

I'm conflicted, some of those Matty BAFs look nifty, but I know they're prototypes, and the Matty factory craptomizer will do it's work in production.

I love the Expression Pack for Batman. I think I would pretty much always have him displayed with the Shocked/Horrified expression.

 

I really want to like the Bombshells Wonder Woman but when translated to three dimensions she looks positively nutty.

Seriously, those Bombshell figures are horrifying.

 

I'm leaning towards that expression pack though.  Hmmmm.  Batman scandalized at everything?  Yes, I like that idea.

If I see these on pegs I'll likely pick and choose. Dr. Psycho and Wonder Girl for sure, and maybe the DKIII Flash to stand in on my alternate Earths shelf.

Don't know if anyone is really interested in pictures but on a random impulse buy, I got the $10 12 inch simplified figure for Wonder Woman that's the equivalent of Marvel's Titan Heroes. In not expecting it to be some DCU Classics or Marvel Legends level of engineering, it's not a bad toy as a toy. What is hilarious is that it has better than the $10 6 inch BvS Wonder Woman figure that seemed to be aiming slightly higher. Not more, since it's the same number of joints, but larger range. She lost knees in favor of exterior thigh swivels + more range due to the lack of a skirt. Just felt like they made smarter choices.

It also got me officially curious about Batman Unlimited but that's another discussion since I need to see if we have existing threads for it.

So what's this about a Walmart exclusive $100 Batcave?

I'll try to remember to take pictures next time I go (unless you found images elsewhere).

So, I dunno if it's been discussed before, but there's this leaked image of an alleged Lego Batman Movie minifigures blindbag line, including such classic characters as Surf's Up Batman, Clock King, Red Hood, Chef Joker (?), and, of all characters, Orca.

 

1476804202812.png

 

Interesting as this is on its own, it's making me wonder if the legal position on doing Lego Batman Movie blindbags is different to Lego DC or Marvel blindbags on the whole; if it's true that they can't do superhero blindbags because they're too close to being action figures, this being possible is pretty interesting.

I picked up BTAS Clayface, despite those incredibly ugly promotional photos that they used.

Surprisingly, he doesn't look bad in person.  I think that the head-sculp, while nice, isn't exactly dead-on to the animation model, but the colour and textures of the body work well enough to make him probably my favourite BTAS villain figure to date.

 

I'm not sure what they were going with the axe arm attachment, though.  The way that they oriented the blade with the curvature of the forearm, Clayface can pretty much only whack himself with the bladed edge.  Ironically, I think I'm just going to bin the pieces and display him with both actual arms.

Oof, that sounds like a Matty thing.  Hope DC Direct doesn't pick up more of their bad habits.

 

And speaking of lousy articulation!  The nuDoomsday wave all hit sub-$15 on amazon, and I ended up buying them all, despite only wanting the MOTUC-buck guys, like Snarly Armorbats here (it's fun, I have to admit).
