    Thanks for the explanations. I'm still puzzled about him being a lifelong Cap truther. He believes a conspiracy theory about Captain America?

    All of that, is just . . . depressing. I thought we had agreed on what English was in its written form. If you want to use slang verbally to your friend, it's one thing. To write it as part of a press release or professional interview is another. I'm still in my 30s, but I feel like I should go lay down in a grave suddenly.

    Eminem coined the term Stan as a combination of the words "stalker" and "fan," but that's not how most of the hip kids on the internet use it. I kind of doubt Ziglar believes some kind of weird conspiracies about Captain America. He's clearly just throwing words around.

    Oh boy lol. Im curious if goo gone will still work 🤔 I may experiment with it some more now

    Where do you get goo gone?

    They sell Goo Gone at places like Target, Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, Home Depot, Lowes...it works super well, but it leaves a very strong smell. You also want to use gloves, and probably open some windows because there's some really nasty stuff in there (methyl ether and kerosene). 
    It's a bit more work, but alternatively you can try to peel off what you can with your finger nail, being careful not to mar the plastic. You don't have to get all of it, because the next step is to get a little bit of cooking oil on a rag and rub that sticker crap off. You may have to do it a few times, and of course you want to be careful not to use too much, or it could run off the bubble.  Eventually all you have is a spot of grease, which you can get rid of it with a little bit of rubbing alcohol, also applied with a rag. You can use some kind of household degreaser, too, but you'd have to wipe that off with another rag, while the alcohol just evaporates. It's a bit more work than Goo Gone, but it shouldn't stink, and it's also safer.

    Nah, premier access isn't exclusively a charge for a simultaneous release. It's what Disney might charge for something's premier on D+. All Disney theatrical releases for the remainder of this year & probably next will have an exclusive theatrical window of at least 45 days before it premiers on D+. Once there, they may debut it "premier access" with a surcharge or they may not. It sounds like Shang Chi will be premier access after the 12th until around the time it hits home vid on the 30th.

    It sounds like you might be confusing a Disney + debut or premiere with Premier Access. Premiere Access has been exclusively for movies that were in theaters at the time. These are Mulan (the only movie to actually premiere on Disney + a few days before its US theatrical premiere), Raya and the Last Dragon, Cruella, Black Widow, and Jungle Cruise. And to get Premiere Access to see the movie before the 45+ day window there has always been an add-on charge to the subscription, $30. There was no Premier Access with Shang-Chi. Now it has been more than 45 days (a little over 60) days it will simply be debuting on Disney+ for all subscribers. The 12th also happens to be the day Premier Access ends for Jungle Cruise.
    This article explains Premier Access really well:
    https://www.businessinsider.com/disney-plus-premiere-access
     

    This is from a C-Net article about the Shang Chi premiere and Disney+ Day:
    "Starting this Friday, Nov. 12, you can begin streaming Shang-Chi on Disney Plus if you're subscribed to the service. The best part? It'll be free as soon as it's released to the streaming service. That's right, even after Disney Plus Day on Friday, Shang-Chi and a bunch of other premier movies -- including Disney's Jungle Cruise and the Home Alone reboot -- will stream for free as long as you have a subscription."

    I don't believe so, and I'm no expert. I'm pretty sure you still have to be a subscriber (they're offering 1 month for $1.99 though), but anything "premier access," like Shang Chi would normally be since it debuts on Disney+ that day, will be available at no extra cost on that day. It's the anniversary of the service, so this is their way of celebrating. https://variety.com/2021/digital/news/disney-plus-day-2021-price-discount-1235106404/

    Premiere access is for movies that debut simultaneously in theaters and on the site. It's been an extra $30 charge. Since Shang-Chi opened months ago, it would not have been Premiere Access like Jungle Cruise or Black Widow were when they debuted on the site (and in theaters).

    Only if you believe they weren't lying. 'Cause between over 20 years of making these figures, never mind seeing what toybiz did when they had the license, and just flat out ignoring the team's own personal years of reading Marvel comics, there's no way to blame this sloppiness on the notion that Hasbro uses a Google search as "regular practice" to produce this line.

    What, did some google image show them how to eff up the Silver Centurion armor too? Was it google that told them Salma Hayek now has the body of some gangly pre-teen? 

    Even if there were some image that showed the SC armor like that, they know that's not how its been shown in the comics. Any comic fan that has even the slightest knowledge of Dr. Strange, knows full well the costume they've shown is wrong. That Quicksilver they puked up, are you kidding me? Take the head off the costumed body, you have no idea who that is. Google search, my @$$.....

    Uh-uh, no sale. It comes down to either lazy incompetence or deliberate "tweaks". Buy the figure that's almost right, and then buy it again, when they do it correctly down the road. 

    You know, I don't believe they were lying, but I also don't believe it was the entire truth, either. Google has no pictures of Karima with caucasian skin and light brown hair, and it doesn't explain those other things you mentioned. I, however, would not be at all surprised if using Google has become a more regular practice than going to actual artwork straight from the comics (or at least Marvel Unlimited). Why do ten minutes of research when you can do five? 🙄 One could call this lazy incompetence and get no argument from me, and there's surely other $#!@, too that goes into these boneheaded design choices: one of those "deliberate tweaks" would surely include Bobby Vala (or possibly Dwight?) deciding Kingpin just didn't look right unless he scaled out to about 7 1/2" feet tall.

    My Sentinel has been stuck in Georgia for three days?? WTF FEDex?!?

    some are coming in damaged? Wow.. how can that happen for the cost of these things? Wonder if a Hasbro has replacements? 

    Dang now I’m concerned

    There's probably a few more out there, but so far, mine is the only one I'm aware of with any genuine damage. A bunch of them have loose knees, which can be fixed by popping off the cap things (not as easy as some guys make it look) and tightening the screws.
