  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Hopefully US sellers will carry this one, HobbySearch instantly sold out, AmiAmi was a cluster from 3 AM until 4:30 AM (EST). HLJ and AE weren't bad. -b.
  6. Not for something that pricey, had some holdovers from Hobby Search that I shipped that way, worked out fine. -b.
  7. Adding my .02 to the EMS v DHL conversation, I recently shipped the 1/6 Project BM Kaneda's bike from Hobby Search, they wanted 31,147 JPY for DHL. Luckily EMS had just become available to the states again and it cost me 16,800 to ship that way. Granted it took 11 days, but I have zero complaints. I have another in HLJ's Private Warehouse and the current ask for shipping is 15,430 via EMS and 22,320 via DHL (FedEx is 26,200, but screw those guys, never use them if I have a choice). For smaller items I will absolutely stick with DHL, but for the gigantic min-fridge sized items like Kaneda's Motorcycle it looks like EMS is the way to go. -b.
  8. And also hope that renews... That kid makes me think back when I was a kid watching these shows, Transformers, GI Joe, Robo...Macross, Voltron and then Macross Plus as a young adult hoping and praying that I'd get some really decent toys to bring these shows/characters to life. And here we are some 20 years since Yamato burst onto the scene to Bandai making toys when they'd all but abandoned Macross. I don't even like the 21 that much, but I want one AND a VF-11. Plus (pun intended) they'll do it because there's money to be made. -b.
  9. It's not the notifications I have to avoid, it's the fact that I look forward to Loki as my mid-work week entertainment fix. That said, I'm going to try and follow your fine example and give it a shot, and there are a few shows I'd like to catch up on/start. And I do like the idea of watching episodes 5 and 6 back to back. -b.
  10. Fine, fine - at least a reissue (with new or preferably less markings 😁). There's always hope... -b.
  11. While I enjoyed WandaVision and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, and care more about Wanda, Vision, Captain Sam and Bucky more as characters than I do Loki (who isn't a terrible character, I just like the others more) - I'm enjoying Loki SO much more. As long as they don't mess up the ending I can't wait to watch the series again. And I also like Sylvie as a character, she's as interesting in not more so as Loki is...IMO. -b.
  12. By the time this comes out it'll be time for a DX Renewal YF-19 😅 -b.
  13. When this first came out, I watched the first couple of episodes and the production values felt cheap. Even for network television standards. Plus even with the changes from the books none of the characters were likable, at all. That's all I needed to be put off from it. -b.
  14. Love that diagram, I've watched all of the Halloween movies having fallen in love with the original Halloween 1 and 2, but never really bothered to make sense of the continuity because of how messed up it'd become. Halloween II (1981) might be worth a watch if you have 90 ish minutes to kill one day. ðŸĪĢ - Still, infinitely easier than trying to keep them all straight by memory (for anyone that may have seen them all, or for anyone trying to understand the continuity). -b.
  15. Thank you! Very smooth transaction with @Reni -b.
  16. Interesting choices...loved Beast Wars when it was on TV so I'm excited to see them make the leap to the big screen. If they give Bee his voice back that'd be an automatic win in my book -b.
  17. Yeah...suuupppper questionable plot/story beat right there. The part of the movie directly before that and just leading up to the climax are the weakest part of both films. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't ruin the movie, but for me was a real head scratcher on why Krasinski would go in that direction (no pun intended). -b.
  18. Thought this movie was fantastic and a very worthy sequel to the first. While the emotional stakes felt different, they were still firmly rooted in the concept of family and keeping them safe. The main difference was about the growth of the older kids and what they go through in this movie. Some questionable plot beats; Can't wait for more! -b.
  19. Honestly I hope that she's exactly who she appears to be. Besides there's no need to keep doing twisty-turny, who's the big bad in these series - WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier already did that. Plus episode 2 established that there are Loki variants that range in all shapes and sizes, so just let it ride. Let some things be as obvious as they appear to be and let the real surprises come with other parts of the story. Like the Time Keepers true origins and/or motives, Judge R, the eventual reveal of , etc. -b.
  20. Adding @jorawar_b - super easy to work with great communication and now the proud owner of a new Sentinel Legioss Thank you again!!! -b.
