Cranky geese is a hell of a tautology

I think I'd read a while back she was born in Berlin

I thought Zazie Beetz was really fantastic in Deadpool 2. Really looking forward to seeing her in Joker.

Any sightings of Ratchet at U.S. Walgreens yet? A couple of stores around me have recently restocked their toy aisles but no Ratchets yet at those ones.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:54 AM)

You don't even hear a hint of an accent, and she only very rarely chooses some odd wording where she probably wasn't familiar with the more appropriate alternative due to its relative obscurity.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:41 AM)

Just watched what's possibly the most relaxed interview ever of a German Youtuber interviewing Zazie while walking around Berlin. Turns out she was born in Berlin and spent quite some time in Germany.

At this point I'm trying to decide how much of a markup I'm willing to pay some scalper scum or if I should just say to hell with it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 September 2019 - 02:11 PM)

That is pretty much the constant story with Hot Wheels. Anything you might actually want has most likely been picked clean and marked up.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:02 PM)

I've been watching some Youtube Hot Wheels videos out of boredom and discovered there exists a new car that just came out maybe a month ago that looks just like one I had when I was little, and I've been looking around hoping to get it. Slim picking everywhere, but online there are a slew of sellers asking for 3 and 4x the retail price, plus a hefty shipping markup.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 01:59 PM)

Oh, that explains the problem I've encountered with finding one little car

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 September 2019 - 01:31 PM)

Oh boy. I work at Target, and literally every single morning, there are two or three guys outside who make a beeline straight to the Hot Wheels.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 September 2019 - 09:55 PM)

I've never read the source material and don't know much about it, but I enjoyed the first film quite a bit, and found the second alright

@  Sabrblade : (17 September 2019 - 09:49 PM)

The first movie was definitely not for me. I flat out hated it. Didn't even bother with the sequel.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2019 - 05:02 PM)

I liked the first movie a lot and enjoyed the original volume of the book, and the way they were developed in parallel was really interesting. It all got super extra unpleasant as soon as they went back though. I don't remember really whether the initial sequels are "good" or not, but either way both the second movie and the second run of the book quickly demonstrated that the property sure wasn't for me.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i have a real hard time offering praise of anything connected to an utter shitstain like Mark Millar.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2019 - 01:23 PM)

Kick Ass 2 was okay for what it was, a sequel to a film that was okay, just okay. It had a good performance from Nic Cage while the sequel had Jim Carrey who decided he didn't want to promote it after one of america's regularly scheduled massacres.

@  Benbot : (17 September 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Was Kick Ass 2 really that bad? I never got around to seeing it, but after watching the first movie again the other day, I'm thinking about it.

If you owe, you're expected to actually pay it at the time you file, before they even process your return

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 September 2019 - 11:10 PM)

If you file electronically, I find you usually get your refund within a couple weeks

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Well, lucky it took less than two months for me. For a little over 200 Euros.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Pretty much, yeah. Canada revenue will be all up your ass if you earn less than 200K and owe tax, but your refund is basically "duke nukem forever".

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Whereas if you overpaid and they have to refund you, they will take their sweet time to let you know.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Like, here in Germany, if the tax authority responds to your tax report quickly, you can rest assured they want more money.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Do tax authorities in other countries base their time to respond to filed tax reports on whether they owe or are owed as well?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 11:13 AM)

Check what the requirements are for your cad program, and try to beat them by about 20%, and understand that software requirements have been stable for a few years: not really keeping up with the advancements in hardware. Unless you're doing something SPECIFIC which requires ludicrous amounts of power, just give your self a cushion on hardware and don't bother going whole hog.

On the one hand, I checked, and only Megatron's elbows are hollow on that side, so it has to be shadow.

 

On the other hand ... I checked XD

Hightower is a Deluxe. That explains a lot, though I'm concerned that the nature of its altmode and transformation would make it tiny, even with Studio Series' more flexible budget.

I guess it makes sense for Hightower to be a deluxe if Scrapmetal forms the other half of the arm mode.

I want to like BB Prime but it bugs me how the vehicle mode stores half the mass of the legs on the back of the cab in an attempt to make the rear hitch more realistic, resulting in fiddly legs that almost look too small for the upper body.

 

And it's not like a realistic hitch is mandatory for SS Primes.

My Stege Megatron's sword bits are warped just enough that they can't clip properly into blade mode. So I unscrewed it, tossed it in the spare parts bin, and now he has two guns.

For me that meant that the little flaps at the front of the they wouldn't stay up, but you can take apart the arms and add a bit of lacquer or nail polish on the axles pretty easily it that's a problem. Solved mine at least. (My sword wasn't defective but I didn't like it.)

Honestly, I just push the little shoulder flaps down so they cover the gap. It's a totally fictional vehicle anyway, so it's not like it's being inaccurate to a source.

Bonus, now the cannon can elevate, although it looks bad if raised up too far.

Yeah, I liked that too, and it's part of why I initially took the blades off, because I really wanted to be able to raise the cannon. I ended up rejiggering things anyway to interpret the whole turret as an artillery mount and just rotate it on the cradle though.

Is it me or do Steve Megatron's treads kinda look like they were intended to clip together at some point for a more solid tank mode? Like a transformation step got budgeted out?

Thing is, if the tank mode isn't solid, you're literally doing it wrong. It's possible not to shove the front section far enough back, so that it fails to lock in place. If you're doing this step right, you have two solid blocks of tank that can only wiggle a little at the waist. The only nod the tread blocks make at one another is that the rear treads have a little hollow tab stretching out toward an area that could, if it were molded completely differently, have matching tabs to fit into the slots, and prevent the waist rotation.

MP BW Megatron looks pretty much perfect in both modes, though all his kibble is removable for some reason. I don't mean it's designed to pop off if excessive force is applied, there's a pic in this official gallery that literally advertises it as a feature.

Maybe some one at Takara just really liked shipping those two because of that scene.

 

Though removable kibble is a bit more than just an extra accessory.

There was also that opening scene in the first episode where everyone is in "protoform", aka "remove obvious beast kibble and keep 'em in deep shadows so nobody notices".

Which used up their allotment of shadows for 90% of the series.
