He's actually interfacing with the public and is generally charismatic. He's no more effective than harper, but at least he can work a room.

@  Locoman : (23 January 2018 - 12:39 AM)

-shrugs- He says the right things more often, at least.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 January 2018 - 11:03 PM)

Well is Trudeau an improvement over Harper?

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 10:54 PM)

Most of the country is sick of trudeau, they very well might get in anyway. Might as well vote for the shmuck who actually wants to do good, but will accidentally screw it up, over the shmucks who'll lie about it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 07:14 PM)

Voting NDP is how the Conservatives get in, though

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 07:12 PM)

because the road to hell is, after all, paved with good intentions.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 07:12 PM)

There isn't one of those in this lot. Vote for the one whom won't deliberately do damage... so NDP.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 07:09 PM)

I usually feel an obligation to vote in any election, but I honestly won't know who to vote for next time around. I don't like any of them, and I think the best we can hope for is someone who won't do any more damage

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 07:04 PM)

Pretending to try to figure out how to undo the absolutely flawless system of wealth concentration they and their predecessors designed

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 07:04 PM)

Well, they're all off to Davos now, supposedly to lament the horribly skewed wealth distribution that's gotten even worse since last year's meeting

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 07:03 PM)

Conversely, being impressed by politicians isn't something you should be happy about.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 07:02 PM)

The other side of the canadian coin right now is a harper clone. If trudeau runs again, the choice is NDP or liberal. It all depends on how the NDP plays out under the new guy, but so far I am unimpressed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 07:00 PM)

I don't disagree. Trudeau is a clown and he's been a huge disappointment. I was naive enough to believe he'd actually stick to his word and do something to help the middle class. He's never getting my vote again

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 07:00 PM)

This little raptor is freaking BOSS! Also, I've been drinking, so kinda mellow.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 07:00 PM)

Been playing with slash for the last hour though, totally worth it.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 06:59 PM)

After duties and the exchange AND shipping. I'm not even going to bother appealing, it'll take ages and achieve nothing.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 06:59 PM)

I assuming it was toys, and those have a 0% duty rate even when the object isn't of North American manufacture. In that case, it just should've been taxes and the processing fee

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 06:58 PM)

We won't get it. Nothing the trudeau government has done has actually helped the end level canadian citizen, and with trump on the other side: it'll only get worse.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 06:58 PM)

Wonko, if you feel the customs weren't assessed properly you can always contact them to appeal. Generally, the fee should only be taxes (GST/QST in your case) + duties (if applicable, depending on the type of item where it was made) + Canada Post's processing fee. If the item was properly valued on the parcel, it usually shouldn't reach paid twice territory

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

One of the things I'm hoping comes out of these NAFTA talks (assuming they don't kill it) is Canada adopting an increased duty-free limit. $20 compared to the American's $800 is really ridiculous

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 06:47 PM)

Stuff sent via more expensive shipping methods, though, might attract their attention more often

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 06:46 PM)

Although it might depend what method it was sent via USPS. Pretty much the only things I receive from the US anymore in Canada are sent First Class Parcel (which is trackable), and I don't think Customs really scrutinizes those ones that much

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 06:41 PM)

In fact I almost never get charged. Only when the stated value on the package is in the extreme range, like $300 or more

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 06:41 PM)

Strange the duties were so high. I've been hit by UPS with their insane fees, but I've always had good experiences with USPS and Canada Post

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 05:36 PM)

USPS then canada post.

@  RichardT1977 : (22 January 2018 - 05:25 PM)

Very carefully, I hope

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 03:32 PM)

How was it delivered?

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 02:24 PM)

the duties pushed the cost of it into "paid twice" range.

@  Benbot : (22 January 2018 - 02:06 PM)

Well, at least hospitalization won't send you into bankruptcy. There's always that.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (22 January 2018 - 01:52 PM)

o.O

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 01:40 PM)

And not happy anymore. 40 bucks on duties. Free trade my ass.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 11:26 AM)

Yay! I should get my package from BBTS today!

@  Arazyr : (22 January 2018 - 10:50 AM)

@  Telly : (22 January 2018 - 03:32 AM)

no. was just making a silly/stupid joke

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 January 2018 - 03:22 AM)

Onyx is a stone. Onix is a rock snake. Do you even Pokemon, bro?

@  Telly : (22 January 2018 - 02:44 AM)

could be a rock made of snakes. we just dont know!

@  Foffy : (22 January 2018 - 02:15 AM)

He is a snake made of rock, though

@  Jetstream C-18 : (21 January 2018 - 08:56 PM)

No, Onyx is a snake.

@  Arazyr : (21 January 2018 - 01:12 PM)

Something I only just "got" last night: Of course IDW's GB Blackrock is associated with Onyx Prime. Onyx is a black rock.

@  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)

@  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*

The horror,Hasbro's facebook page has FOC Bruticus colored in G-2 colors,I want the game informer colors not neon G-2 colors. Hasbro what are you doing? WHY the hideous G-2 neon colors?
http://www.facebook.....type=1

I want the the Game stop store magazine Game informer colors,that were non-neom/Non-G-2 Colored:
http://i75.photobuck..._scaled_800.jpg

Can someone please email hasbro & ask them which FOC Bruticus colors their using. the Game informer magazine colors of the toyfair facebook neon G-2 colors.

Can we all form a petition & ask hasbro to use the game stop game informer magazine FOC Bruticus/combaticons colors instead.

Is their someone or a crew at Hasbro on a deliberate mission to Ruin Transformers toys by slapping ugly color schemes on them?

do the hasbro crew think the second colors will be more appealing to younger kids?

are these second colors being done deliberately to force fans to buy the Takara versions?

Are these second colors being done on purpose to release the awful colors first? then later on release the molds in better colors,to make fans pay for the molds over & over again?

Either way,I loved the Game informer magazine colors the best. as they looked great on the mold & MORE IMPORTANTLY MADE THE MOLD LOOK MORE GROWN UP & geared for a older teenager/fans buying audience.

I was hoping when I saw FOC Bruticus in those ugly colors at Hasbro's nyc toyfair this saturday. that these were the rusehed un-finished test shot colors & not the final colors.

GEE GADS,Those recent hasbro facebook FOC Bruticus colors are pure awful. the neon colors are blinding & look horrid/aful/toddler on those molds.

the neon yellow swindle looks leaps & bounds worse than the mustard yellow dull colored swindle. Neon Brawl looks like lime green jello colored. Vortex thatv red looks bad & that purple neon colored copter blade makes the mold look like garbage as it doesn't blend it with the other colors. that neon colored purple blast off has un-realitic shuttle colors & looks worse than the game informer gold colors,at the very least the gold colors had age & looked cool. the more neon blue+neon green+neon yellow high lights all over onslaught just looks like throw up & pure awful. the neon yellow should upward bladed on bruticus look horrible & no where as great/cool/awesome as the first colors grey shoulder upward things from the game informer magazine.

The Hasbro facebook bruticus combiner parts & weapons looks awful/horrible/puke compared to the awesome Game stop magaine game informer combiner parts & weapons. Purple neon bruticus fist are ulgy & blinding. the mix matched neon colored tiny weapons that combine to form the huge bruticus hand weapon look so miix matched & don't blend into to one another well enough to form a convincing looking big weapon. The game stop magazine game informer combiner parts & weapons look much more adult/mature/bland/normal/non-toddler looking & more awesome.

In closing: if hasbro colors this FOC Bruticus in these ugly neon colors,then I simply won't buy it. I might buy the takara non-neon colors instead. I have a feeling Takara will color FOC Bruticus in G-1 1985 Combaticons/bruticus colors. the takara colors will probably look better than the game informer magazine colors & the horrid/awful recent hasbro facebook G-2/Neon Colors

The neon colors are a test sample. based on everything (at least that I have read) from Toyfair. Bruticus's final colors will be closer to his in game informer colors.

I was told personally by Josh Jivoin the colors were going to be close to what you see in the game.

That does not make me think that the alternate one they showed at Toy Fair isn't also going to see some kind of release, as they had stock photos for that version in their presentation.

I didn't read the whole rambling thing. But I am amused by folks pulling G2 out when it's much, much closer to Energon Bruticus Maximus. Heh.

My feeling is it's a cool toy in either set of colors.
