    Nah. It's good as is.

    There was a note. the action figure version will be sent separately in November. (Honestly their November might be 2019 January :D


    was this note on their webpage or sent via email or was it in the shipping box(es)?

    mine went straight into storage so i don't know if i should open it up and get that note in case i need it for claiming the figure come release day.

  2. anyone here from PH who also ordered this from the KidsLogic store?  was it shipped via fedex and were you taxed?

     been busy and just saw KL email from last month notifying they are ready to ship my order via fedex. 

  3. how's amiami these days with cancellations? just a nice email and they let you do it? or do they still give you crap about account bans and cancelation of existing orders?

    i have some pending orders i don't want to risk

  4. using Synology DS413  a bit over 5 years. 1 drive (disk#2, 2 years on previous NAS, a DS211) failed after 2 years on the DS413 (so, 4 yrs service life). rebuild went  without a hitch.

    2nd drive (disk#1, also from previous NAS) went on the 3rd year of the DS413 (5 yrs service life). again, rebuild was seamless.

    then on the 5th year of the DS413, one of the original drives of the DS413 (disk#4) failed after 5 yrs service, then during the rebuild, another drive, disk#2 which i replaced 3 yrs earlier, developed bad sectors that couldn't be read and caused the volume rebuild to fail. 

    had i been using RAID6 (double fault tolerance), which was one of the options presented to me during setup, the rebuild would've still completed. but the extra capacity of my 2 newer drives (5 TB each) would've gone to waste. volume size would just be 2 x 3TB (older drives) = 6TB

    but i got greedy and chose SHR (Synology Hybrid Raid) which optimized volume size to ~8TB  at the start , and growing to ~12TB as i replaced the smaller drives to the same capacity as the bigger drives. SHR only has single fault tolerance. fortunately i was still able to access the NAS and backed up to a bunch of portable drives. in the end, less than 10GB was lost due to the unreadable bad sectors. i still haven't gotten around to rebuilding my NAS since i got super busy, and i figured i should just upgrade to a DS418play this summer.

    what i learned: go for double fault tolerance especially when using very big drives. if at all possible, resist the temptation of >6TB drives. they'll take forever to rebuild and will really test your luck, even with double fault tolerance. might be better just getting a second NAS unit for expansion.

    Yes sir ... that's the one!  I'd even go for a assembled one :)  For trade, I have a VF-11 Full Armor Battroid in 1/72 scale.  The tank there and $45 for my unbuilt VF-11 Full Armor Battroid kit.  It's a reissue kit Andy was awesome enough to allow to happen, not some recast.  Below is a pic of a fully assembled kit.post-586-0-27223100-1439761590.jpg.d83b10ae506e540edb78cd9a43fa626b.jpgpost-586-0-83730400-1439761623.jpg.ae2c2edb50374eee5ad16a365f7faab0.jpgpost-586-0-66869500-1439761615.jpg.bb8e5c6fef601b165c008e5326bb5bb1.jpg
