  1. [SPLIT] CMoN orders

    RE: CMoN orders: I don't think they're being shipped by order size; my first order had 37 individual items on it; that's gotta be at least a medium size order, I would think.
  2. The past couple Reapercons that I've been at, I have noticed a fair amount of swag bag/con exclusive figures that people didn't want getting tossed onto the melt table and/or left laying around. I had the idea of collecting all the unwanted stuff, putting it in a box and shipping it around to folks who couldn't get to the 'con so that they could sort of 'be there, too'. Unlike the regular BoGW, people donating wouldn't get anything out of the box, they would just be 'throwing away' the stuff they don't want in a slightly different direction. Maybe there would be a ribbon involved, maybe it might just be the thanks of people who will benefit done the line. This isn't a for sure thing, I'm just testing the waters to see what people think of the idea. So, what do you think? Mods: I know this is sort of a mini exchange, but I thought it might make more sense to be here. If it belongs elsewhere, my apologies for creating more work for you.
  3. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    It's a good thing you don't live somewhere that it's actually cold; then it'd be snow! So what you're saying is that we need less people. It's so cold out that your phone is beginning to freeze, and that is it's way of letting you know that it's malfunctioning.

    You made a typo. Twarthing....I'm pretty sure you meant thwarting.

    I'm sorry, but I just can't approve that. Awesome, congrats!! I completely agree.

    You might want to report that to someone. Deer around here shouldn't die in the winter, we have way too much foliage. Someone might be poisoning them, there might be some kind of toxin loose in the environment, or they might be sick. Any of those pose a significant enough risk that they're worth looking into. At least to my mind. I know there's folks who don't give two wits about deer, but even though they're just rats with hooves, they're important rats with hooves. I'd be inclined to agree. If there's some fool running around poisoning wildlife, or there is something toxic in the local environment, I'd want to know about it (and get it stopped).

  17. Star Wars: What's going on? (SPOILERS)

    Exactly. Put it in the text crawl, make the movie 3 minutes longer to allow for a bit of descriptive dialogue, whatever, but fill in the back story enough so that your current story (the movie) makes sense. If I'm interested enough, I'll probably go hunt down ( and possibly buy) all the other stuff on my own.

    Drink, by Alestorm It is cold. It can be wet. It is pretty when it is freshly fallen. If I have to deal with it, so does EVERYONE!

    You haven't tried a hammer yet, have you?
  20. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Well, it depends on the event, but probably, yes. That's definitely the sign of an awesome girl friend! I hope you had fun.
  21. Star Wars: What's going on? (SPOILERS)

    Ok, I finally saw it, so I can participate in this thread. The main issue I have with the new trilogy is that there's no explanation of what the hell happened in the 20-30 years since the events of Jedi. Exactly what happened that leads us to the protagonists being in exactly the same situation in these movies that they were in in the original trilogy? Who/what is Snoke? What is the first order? Where'd they come from? (I have been able to do some online research and figure this out, but it should have addressed in the movies, IMO) So, that's my major gripe with the new movies. Most of my other ones are minor, attention to detail type things that a lot of people may have missed. SPOILERS BELOW, in case you still haven't seen the movie. Forex: When Luke makes his projection at the end of the movie, how did he hold Leia's hand? A bigger one: At least 6 escape transports escaped and made landfall on the salt-planet. I haven't been able to figure out (yet) the transport capacity of them, but lets assume there should have been roughly 500 people on the ground. There wasn't enough fighting to have wiped them all out to the point that there were only a few survivors left to escape on the Millennium Falcon. END SPOILERS And then there's Phasma. Some of you are likely to be upset by this, so I apologize up front. I hope she's dead. The character was a waste from the word go. There was no reason for her to exist. I would've loved to see a really nasty lady villain; they blew it when they decided to go with 'shiny stormtrooper' for her look/gimmick/whatever. That goes completely against everything that's already established. Stormtroopers are nameless, faceless, bad guys. They (mostly) wear white armor. They have different colored pauldrons that denote rank. They may wear different styles of armor depending on their assignment (snowtrooper, scout trooper), but they don't get to wear special colored, one of a kind armor for any reason. Any special ornamentation to denote significant achievements would have been reserved for use on the dress uniform. The shiny armor doesn't make sense from the in universe lore stand point, and it doesn't make sense militarily, either. (Kill the one with the different armor, it might be their leader). If they'd had a couple lines of dialogue about it being new, experimental, blaster proof armor for use by officers, and had at least a few other people wearing it, I wouldn't have had as much heartache about it. Just to be absolutely clear, this has nothing to do with the fact the character was a woman, it would have irked me just as much if it was a guy. Actually, I'm more irked that they included a female villain, and then they basically wasted her.
  22. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    I don't know why, but I really don't want to go to work today. I only mention this because it's much more intense than my usual 'don't want to go to work' feeling. Like I'm still typing this when I should be walking out the door....

    Happy Birthday, Brutus!
  25. Ok, this isn't a New year's resolution ( I don't make those), but I have decided that I need to get over the "I'm not good enough" thing and try to push myself to paint all those figures that I've been saving for 'some day'. That day is NOW. I grabbed this figure during a Black Friday sale for something like 4 or 5 bucks. Depending on where you get it from, it's usually more like 30. It's 28mm scale, but it stands pretty tall; I'm guessing it's 54mm tall or thereabouts. I'll get a proper picture with Sir Forscale a little bit later on. I'd like you to help push me to do my absolute best with this guy, please. If you think something looks good, cool, tell me that. By the same token, if you think something doesn't look good, tell me that, too. I want you guys to 'break out the red pen' as Cyradis would say. For reference, this is the figure I'm talking about (picture from the WWW, not my figure).
