The music, if you'd even call it that, adds to the creepy atmosphere. Apparently it was recorded using sounds created in a real nuclear power plant of the same type as Chernobyl.

@  Nevermore : (15 December 2019 - 04:04 PM)

In case you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend the HBO mini-series "Chernobyl", which is about, well, you know. It's very intense and not for the faint-heartet. I'd say it's more scary than any horror flick, because (despite some artistic liberties taken with the behavior of some of the characters, and the timeline for some events), it's eerily real.

@  Sabrblade : (15 December 2019 - 10:51 AM)

Hey, at least you baked a cake in the bathroom. Not many can attest to that. :p

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Nope. Forgot entirely, had to make another trip.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 December 2019 - 04:04 PM)

Well, did you get water?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Went to the bathroom, shaved, baked a cake... wait, I only got up to get some water...

@  unluckiness : (14 December 2019 - 09:01 AM)

That's a common misconception. You see compared to the first run, it's a new mold.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (14 December 2019 - 03:27 AM)

Wouldn't that just add packaging authenticity? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2019 - 01:44 AM)

I read a anecdote of someone recently receiving a Glacialord with mold because apparently online stores' warehouses have been sitting on Fansproject products like that for years.

@  Rycochet : (13 December 2019 - 11:56 AM)

Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

@  Nevermore : (12 December 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

So I'm seeing lots of Gridman and SSSS Gridman model kits from Bandai, Megahouse, and Good Smile. What're the chances there'll be an SHFiguarts of either iteration?  I've been collecting a lot of the Kamen Rider and Ultra series figures and to have Serv--Gridman in that style would be awesome.

There's an old Ultra-Act Gridman figure Bandai did a few years ago, but it's notorious for having fragile wrists.

They've been making Ultraman Figuarts for a few years now but

a) I don't have firsthand experience with those so I don't know how they compare to Ultra-Act

b) That line's been pretty slow to get to Heisei characters so I don't know the odds of a Gridman any time soon. I think there's only X and Zero for Heisei Tsuburaya characters so far.

c) wait did they choose to only make heisei ultras with megaman-sounding names

Speaking of insane...

So this is a thing:



It's from a line by Bandai called Neko Busou (ねこぶそう), which is clearly Japanese for "Murder Cats."

(actually, it's Cat Armament - but Murder Cats sounds way more fun).


The Dianaut and chair are from Diaclone Reboot, of course.  I also painted it up a bit since everything being olive drab was a bit... drab.  

Holy carp,I don't even like cats, but this things just speaks to me in some weird Japanese acid-trippy sort of way.


Like this is the most epic death machine in my entire Diaclone arsenal now.  And since the pegs sizes are the same, I can cross-contaminate all I want.


I've got the standard four releases coming this week.


And in November, there's a Mad-Max style kitty-scooter o' death coming out:



Gods help me if Bandai start doing Shiba Inu in the same format.  I will be so broke.

EDIT:  Reconfigured it to look a little better.  That weird stock "claw-thingy" configuration was poop.

The exorbitant price tag aside, I really enjoy having him.  He's a massive beast of a toy all built up.  Quite solid for a model kit, owing to the pure ABS construction, and large, monolithic chunks of plastic.

And he's kinda in-scale to the GGG bots from the rest of the line, which is one of the IWANTS reason.

Hell, I paid for GekiRyuJin and the SymDocker space boosters. May as well!

It's a bit concerning how DA seems to have quickly fallen back on making characters from other licenses rather than continuing with their original designs.


It doesn't help that most of said licensed characters have been getting the better engineering. :doh

MP Eva arrived. This is the first NXEDGE in a few months and whilst it's another Eva it's nice that it's not a simply a rehash of the lead three, who have had their Rebuild and TV designs by this point. The figure itself is a shared exclusive between Bandai webshop and the official Eva store. The wing unit is pretty impressive and they included neck rotation so you can get it into feral poses. That had been one of my big complaints with these as Eva toys. You can pull off the pseudo-tokusatsu poses but the more feral, primal stuff didn't really work (made worse by competing SD Evas pulling this off) so them realising that here is great. 


You get another appearance of the Lance (this time in navy/purple) and the double edged sword. This is designed so the handle pops off and slides into the hand before attaching back on. Another thing that shows they've learned as getting the Evas more complicated weapons into their hands as is on this line is a chore.


From here on out it looks like the line is dedicating itself to Mashin Hero Wataru for now. It's also up in the air if I'll be able to get imported toys post-March but nice to see they're improving in the right direction.
