  1. You can say that again. Hell, you could scream that at the top of your lungs. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLL ðŸĪĢ. But it is a very pretty stand that I'll never use. In any event I'm really digging the design of the 31AX and doing my best to ignore all of the thermometer and pregnancy test talk about the Pod so I can just enjoy my toy in peace once it arrives. I even like the Battroid mode which I usually don't outside of the VF-1, VF-11 and YF/VF-19 (Isamu only) variants. -b.
  2. Not gonna lie, I initially thought this was HLJ as well, but reading it quickly shows that this was the mag, not the store we all know and like/love/hate. -b.
  3. Pretty much, however as I think about it and to be fair to the movie makers, in some ways that was by design. GI Joe and Cobra are left on the periphery on purpose which kind of works. But the story and the characters are all cookie-cutter which makes this so generic-looking and feeling. The movie stays pretty grounded (which again, would have been okay had the story been stronger) until the last act and then BOOM invincibility plot armor and an infinity stone come out to play. -b.
  4. Yeah, I don't even know (or remember) Snake Eye's comic book origins, it was that as generic hero (who happened to be Snake Eyes) was written as a unlikable jerk. And as stated above, if you like Storm Shadow, this really is the movie for you. That was a character in the movie that was truly well done and he came across as more of a protagonist, as the designated protagonist did. -b.
  5. Welp. The Jeremy Jahns YouTube review posted above was pretty spot on. Honestly this should have been Storm Shadow: Cobra Origins as he was a far more sympathetic character than Snake Eyes, who was an a-hole pretty much the entire movie. Even then, the acting was good, the fight choreography was good, and most of the movie was fairly grounded - then the third act and all of a sudden everyone is a super hero. Bottom line, I left the theatre thinking that Storm Shadow literally has every right to want Snake Eyes dead, and honestly he'd be 1000000000000% justified. Just...ugh. -b.
  6. Expectations super low, feedback that seems to match those expectations but I'm still going. Because my EMAX ticket was only $3 with a promotion from my wireless carrier and Atom (ticket seller). Going on Sunday so I'll come back to this thread and leave a one-emoji review lol -b.
  7. Got it, thank you @tekering I guess EvilBay it is 🙃 -b.
  8. Definitely going to take advantage of my existing HBO Max subscription and watch this at home, but certain movies beg to be seen in theaters. This is one, so I'll be there on opening night. -b.
  9. The first few seasons of 24. Not Kim being chased by a mountain lion 24. 😅 Really enjoyed Loki, probably more so than the other D+ shows so far, which really surprised me given how ambivalent I am regarding the character. -b.
  10. Like others have pointed out, this was okay to bad, with a small handful of good moments. Wasted potential really is the theme here. Great cast, some really good acting (Scar Jo and Florence Pugh were outstanding) but the story/plot...yikes. AND this might be one of the only end-credit scenes that actually annoyed me. I'm fine with what Marvel is doing from a connected universe perspective (there's a lot of potential there), but I'm not stoked about this particular setup. Kind of a bummer because I was very excited to have a new MCU movie to watch. Hopefully Shang-Chi and Eternals (really looking forward to that) are much better. -b.
  11. Okay, okay. Not looking forward to the inevitable tears on pre-order night, but I'm always down for a challenge. -b.
  12. Thanks @seti88! Here's to hoping that Bandai doesn't F up the availability of these 31A's. *reasonably assuming they'll be released as DX Chogokins -b.
  13. Yeah, I'm sure shipping by boat is perfectly fine - I mean global commerce and all of that, not to mention your own extensive positive personal experience. But for MY Kaneda's Bike, helllllll naw lol More re: EMS, I have a few items with a handful of vendors leftover from last year that have been waiting for EMS, I think I'm about to start reaching out to see where my stuff is, and if/when they ship how long they take for items like SH Figuarts. -b.
  14. No problem! I was wondering the same thing, I was here and I refreshed the thread a few times to see if anyone was posting...but nope, total ghost town. -b.
  15. HLJ opened about 3:15/3:20 AM (don't remember exactly, but 3:25 is when I received the Order Confirmation email). I got the orange button a couple of times at AmiAmi, then I got the Account Restriction notice for literally an hour straight. Via mobile and laptop. -b.
  16. Gotcha. Just to clarify, The Boys is on Amazon Prime, I was trying to say that I would not compare Jupiter's Legacy to anything coming from Disney - mostly because Disney could easily outspend everyone on the shows that they produce for Disney +. Anywho, I truly hope the show or property finds new life on screen in some way shape or form - especially for those that enjoyed this. -b.
  17. Fair, production values and "looking cheap" are all very subjective terms. To me, especially when compared to The Boys (I'm not going to compare this to a behemoth like Disney+) the show felt...off. The best example I can think of is how US daytime soap operas look compared to shows that come on primetime. I guess if you know, you know. I will say that I was looking forward to this and wanted the show to be good and successful, but again, the characters just weren't very likable. Had they been engaging I could have easily gotten over/past how I thought the show "looked". -b.
