It's a good deal if you want a full set of Refraktor (and if they have them at your location)

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 November 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Here we can buy two and get one free, but at least two of them are gonna be the same toy, because lol distribution.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2019 - 01:01 PM)

In the U.K., it’s more like you but two, you only get one given how expensive they are.

@  Sjogre : (16 November 2019 - 10:46 PM)

Okay, that actually sounds pretty fun.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 12:49 PM)

It was set in the forties, featured Nazi's as the villains and had Kiko fight mostly Ice Age animals and a mythical dragon that now ruled the island guarding Kongs treasure.

@  Paladin : (15 November 2019 - 11:37 AM)

and it was ALSO eleven hours long.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 10:55 AM)

In a alternate reality Peter Jackson made Son of Kong.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 November 2019 - 09:30 AM)

To be fair to boba: everyone else to go into the sarlacc was a sacrifice. Stripped almost naked and tossed, and didn't have body armor, a jetpack and a weapon.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2019 - 06:54 AM)

Nah, he just has to keep up his plot insurance payments so he can shoot his way out of the Sarlacc again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 November 2019 - 02:59 AM)

Funny, but everyone knows he bounty hunts for Jabba Hutt to finance his 'Vette.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

@  Patch : (13 November 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Just a particularly odious example of the 90s era of depicting transgender women as either the subject of crude humor, or "Jerry Springer" material.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 11:25 AM)

It'll be a terrible movie if jim carrey phones it in. Otherwise it should be decent.

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 10:45 AM)

sonics' still gonna be a terrible movie but at least they whined loud enough to make him look passable for a 2-minute trailer. "yay."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:37 AM)

But of course to annoying people there's no such thing as different decisions made for different reasons, there is only "I like it so it's right" and "I don't like it so it's wrong."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Even if we pretend it's objective truth that they were both bad, then they were bad in very different ways.

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Sonic's previous movie design looked genuinely bad. The Transformers '07 designs just looked insufficiently like what certain loud and obnoxious parts of the fandom think Transformers are required to always look like.

@  Otaku : (13 November 2019 - 08:50 AM)

Um... Purple Monkey Dishwasher?

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 November 2019 - 08:25 AM)

Do we really need to have Every Movie Transformer Thread Ever in the Squawkbox?

@  Bass X0 : (13 November 2019 - 08:13 AM)

Sure it made money but that doesn’t mean it has appealing character designs. Lot of god awful fugly faces in the Transformers movies.

@  Otaku : (12 November 2019 - 08:25 PM)

@Liege My issue with Transformers (2007) were elements I thought were unnecessary.  I know it was supposed to just be a joke, but I didn't ever need to hear about "Sam's Happy Time". >.> Which, being in awe of the first "live action" TF-film, didn't even register until I'd already purchased and watched it on DVD a few times (after seeing it in theaters 3 times).

@  Liege : (12 November 2019 - 08:22 PM)

For all the Bayisms in the 07 movie, it was tempered by Spielberg as producer. Designs aside it was an enjoyable popcorn blockbuster about a boy and his first car who happens to be an alien from another planet. They sequels are just Bay going unchecked after he proved how much bank he could bring in.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 November 2019 - 07:12 PM)

I didn't find the designs in the '07 movie to be that bad, personally. What got really offputting was how Cybertronians in general become such huge a-holes in the later films; the designs were very much secondary to their horrible personalities

@  Sabrblade : (12 November 2019 - 06:59 PM)

And yet, Transformers still broke the bank at the box office, opened up the brand to a whole new generation of fans, shot the brand up to mainstream appeal, and enabled all kinds of new collector-oriented lines and other avenues to come about. Not saying Sonic's movie will do the same for his series, but the 2007 TF movie certainly did more good than harm.

@  Bass X0 : (12 November 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Paramount changed Sonic due to fan backlash but refused to redo Transformers 2007 with new cgi appearances based on their classic forms everyone’s knows and loves, and can relate to. Trailer 1 Sonic is as appealing a design as 2007 Bumblebee...

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 02:14 PM)

I don't. They're a pain in the ass to repair.

@  Benbot : (12 November 2019 - 12:48 PM)

I wish car companies would bring back flip up headlights

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 09:07 AM)

Um I'd say the Battalizer gimmick is still well and alive, just renamed for different series any more.

 

And technically we did have Hyperforce Pink get one but ya a real show Battlizer for a female ranger would be cool.

I want a Female ranger to get the Battalizer toy for a change!

 
For that we need a female Red Ranger,

Which we did get in Samurai (and in SPD, but she turned evil).
 

after all in the history of PR its been the Red Ranger who gets the main Battalizer,

Lightspeed Rescue introduced the Battlizer-esque Megabattle Armors, which were used by the Blue and Green Rangers, and in Time Force by the Quantum Ranger.

 

And later, Samurai's Battlizer, Shogun Mode, was used by the Red, Blue, and Pink Rangers, while Ninja Steel's Battlizer, Lion Fire Mode, was used by the Red, Blue, Yellow, and Gold Rangers.
 

thou Jungle Fury put an end to the Battalizer gimmick,

But which was brought back in the Neo-Saban Era and continues to be used to this day, with Red Fury Mode in Beast Morphers.
 

of course that was the time when they didn't use the Japanese verison of the villian as the main villian of the story, while later series would do that.

And now they're back to using an American-made villain in Evox.

Granted, the Messiah Cell costume from Go-Busters was used for Evox's physical form for one episode, but just that one episode. With how Beast Morphers season 1 ended, we can expect season 2 to have

I mean if your gonna complain/disqualify Evox for that then Master Org isn't an American villian either. He's based on the villain from Dairanger(?). Nor is Vengix, as he too takes physical forms from the sentai. Heckyl from Dino Charge probably doesn't count due to Snide. Honestly very few American original villians don't have any connection to the Sentai.

Well, I just finished up the Psycho Path OGN.  I liked it.  I think it might even be a little better than the Soul of the Dragon OGN from last year.  I'd definitely recommend it for fans of In Space.  If you're not familiar with In Space...I'm not sure if you'll get as much out of this.

 

Just...a slight recommendation.  You might want to read the short story in the back of the trade BEFORE reading the main story....and maybe pull out Boom's Mighty Morphin #20, just to review where the main villain of this piece has been before.  The short story is actually a reprint of "Psychotic" from the second Boom Deluxe collection.  So, that's a nice treat, since I was MUCH more interested in that one than the exclusive short for the first Deluxe collection.  

 

I do have a few little quibbles with the book, but I can't really talk about it without spoilers, so...(seriously, don't open the spoiler box unless you're prepared to have the whole book spoiled for you)

 

Spoiler

And...I'd just like to say I'd like a Time Force-focused OGN next.  Maybe something with Wes handing out interdimensional Transportals to different ranger teams like in the Ninja Steel crossover?  I dunno I just like Time Force.  

 

Although a Hyperforce adaptation or sequel could be fun, too.  I really do want them to adapt Hyperforce's story into something less...time consuming.  

 

Or...I dunno, maybe an anthology featuring all the pre-Mighty Morphin Sentai teams that Hasbro's probably never going to flesh out?  It'd be fun to see what they come up with for stuff like Bioman or Liveman.

Maybe something that finally addresses whether or not Wes and Jen's relationship managed to overcome their 1000-year separation.

Didn't JJ get first revealed in "Dimensions in Danger", or did the episode take him from the comics?

Dimensions in Danger aired first and that's probably where the wife and kid came from, ..but for all I know Soul of the Dragon was possibly being written at around the same time. DiD was released August 2018 and SotD was released in December 2018...it usually takes longer to make a TV show than a comic, so thinking about it, the idea probably comes from the tv side of things.  BUT, JDF was lobbying for that Green Ranger movie for a while before any of that, so it's possible the wife and kid are originally from JDF himself (pure speculation on my part).  

 

And to be fair...I completely forgot JJ was mentioned in Dimensions in Danger :doh

Best part of this compared to other Star Wars and Transformers helmets I have, I can actually fit my glasses inside comfortably! Downside my big dumbo ears tend to get pinched as I seal the helmet. And the clasps on the sides are just for show. Also I think in trying to keep up with the previous Red and Green Legacy helmets it comes with a stand to place it on.

I feel Drakkons cuffs on his gloves and boots could use a small amount of detail lining. Good to see regular Jason. Beast Morphers Blue looks cool but I don't plan on getting that team unless I have to. But man do I noot like the look of the shoulder pads on Dino Charge Gold. Did they really look like they hovered over his shoulders in the show?
