Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Touch wood after the 2nd Pfizer yesterday morning nothing particularly distinguishable from any other factor.

Re: Marvel Phase 4

The Electric was similar, about half rows of armchairs and half sofas. Coffee, cocktails, antipasto, handmade cake, etc. and not pretentious with it, a studenty place. Lots of screenings of classic films as well as new releases. I could've gotten tickets to see the premiere of a Ghostbusters documen...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Probably not recommended but I did enough of a workout a few hours after the first jab figuring that if I felt under the weather or a bit achey I'd have something else to pin it on as well. I've got my jabs booked in, so that's exciting. Also had my first MMR jab this week, as it turns out the Docto...

Re: Marvel Phase 4

I wonder if they'll stop demanding such a large cut of opening run ticket sales from cinemas and let them get back on their feet? That's been slowly killing the medium for years. I don't hate cinemas per se, but the best experiences have been ones with bars and no kids, and with news of how the Elec...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Pattern seems to be people react a bit to the 2nd Pfizer and the 1st AZ. If you don't get vaccinated, you're simply a better and more hospitable vector than you would be if you do get vaccinated. Basically. Papers in the last week or so (as well as national press conferences) pointing out the signif...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Whilst there's understandable caution about making statements or claims that vaccines provide sterile immunity, data so far does support significant reductions in transmission. That tallies with infection being largely predicated on viral load. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-56211755 (Just as int...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

It is a chemical. Very dangerous that dihydrogen monoxide stuff -- https://www.dhmo.org/facts.html Beyond skepticism, would happily see most governments shut in an indoor stadium with the coke can (possibly milk carton by now) that would theoretically contain every molecule of covid in the world.

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

There is an edit button, unlike more primitive platforms. Yeah, ultimately I'm in the "protect society or stay away from it" camp and the same with people who are sudden converts to a nationalised health service if the worst happens but don't look after their health with diet, vaccinations, not smok...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

It might just be a case of people figuring it's not worth selling them, since some of the more common UT figures just aren't worth much. Especially if shipping costs are as high in the UK as they are here. The only loose Battle Ravage I remember stumbling on when I was finding my Command Ravage was...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

Yeah, Cybertron was a bit oversized though wouldn't necessarily say double... I've reacquired that Vector Prime and Starscream two pack and might do the same with Armada Wheeljack and Energon Ravage at some point. Seems a bit crazy the only examples of the latter coming out of eBay at the moment are...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

I think if you're not going near anyone who is at risk it's fair enough, but also impossible to know where we are in those chains (I know I have immediate colleagues who are vulnerable, for instance) -- plus being male our base blood clot risk in any given year is significantly lower than women, and...

Here I don't see that. Yeah, for most people attachments are turned on for forums where it's to help upload things for the site.

Re: unicron Armada, reflector and catalog brochures, promo posters

As an aside, I never saw the Energon repaint of Unicron here. Were they plentiful in Canada? I remember the Energon repaint of Overload as Ultra Magnus being basically non-existent in the US while completely swamping the UK Loads shelf-warming here, most of them next to the Armada one that was stil...

Re: unicron Armada, reflector and catalog brochures, promo posters

Gut feel is that fewer early-twenty-somethings are at uni discovering that they want mint versions of the toys they had as kids, whereas twenty years ago fast internet as a concept and eBay were caught up in that. Not sure how many early-twenty-somethings had the same experience with action figures ...

Faking Filmation: another 80s and general retro crowdfund

This one focusing a bit on MOTU. What's particularly interesting is that this seems to be a roll of the dice to get past a legal injunction on releasing an already-complete fan animation, in the wider context of talking about other cartoons of the era. I've gone for the digital bundle since physical...

Anyone come across any customs or media of the Prime/Convoy prototypes?

It's not as simple as painting a cab blue, both modes are quite differently proportioned.

Re: unicron Armada, reflector and catalog brochures, promo posters

As for whether it's more sought after, I wouldn't necessarily assume that. If you were the target age in 2003, you might not have major financial commitments but also are less likely to be in the income bracket that 80s kids tend to be. Once collectors of a particular fandom start dropping off in n...

Re: unicron Armada, reflector and catalog brochures, promo posters

No, not the ancient prototype (I forget whether that was v1 or v2, there's one with small satellites as well, which IIRC was in one of the Generations photo books, probably the deluxe edition of the book) or the Neo-Unicron one, there've been multiple G1 style repaints of the Armada one. Amazon vari...
