Bought the three core seekers in Iron Factory's Wings of Tyrant series hoping to get all the bonus parts needed to build an extra Ghost Starscream and Sunstorm. Only to find there's only enough spare parts for a complete Ghost Starscream and it's missing the torso for Sunstorm. I bet $1 that's to be found in the conehead box set that I have no intention of getting.

They're only bonus parts so I can't really say I've been ripped off. However it's a minor case of obsessive compulsiveness that made me want to complete the parts in the first place. Oh well. Let that serve as a warning to anyone thinking about picking up any of the Wings of Tyrant items: you'll find the odd spare parts. ;)

That's happened ever since the recent site upgrade. Any orders with pre-orders will default to the POL, but if your order contains only in-stock items you have to manually select it to go into the POL on checkout otherwise it is shipped immediately. This happened to me with Titans Master Fangry.

I sent feedback on that and the response was to manually select the POL on checkout and that it should remember the setting for the next time. I'm not too confident that is the case though, so have been extra cautious when placing small orders for in-stock items.

If I'm not mistaken economy air mail is the standard delivery method when you ship your POL. Theoretically it shouldn't take any longer than usual unless you normally opt for a different delivery method.

Using mobile data to watch YouTube and Netflix when at home because I had turned off WiFi at work due to an issue and had forgotten to turn it back on again

I've done that a couple of times. Enough so that I now turn on the data limit and set it to an amount just as a reminder if I keep using the data. Works for me because I hardly use my data.

When Christchurch is one of the largest cities in New Zealand and the Pokemon movie doesn't come to any theatres here. How the hell do you mess up a distribution so badly that one of the country's main cities gets completely skipped?

You made me look that up.
Seems Dunedin gets 1 showing on Saturday 11/11 at 1.30pm, at the more expensive cinema.

I haven't seen a Pokemon movie in years ..

Apparently it's showing at Event and Rialto. The only South Island Event Cinema is in Blenheim and there hasn't been a Rialto here since the earthquakes. I'm probably more salty than I should be because in previous years they've had limited Australiasian releases through Hoyts, but since this one is being released theatrically worldwide the distribution rights ended up going to people who weren't Hoyts, making this the first one I haven't been able to go to in a number of years.

Dunedin has Rialto and Reading, as Hoyts left a few years ago now and building anything in this city seems to be a foreign concept
Just a shame that tickets at Rialto are $16 while it is only $10 at Reading (you can probably figure out what cinema I prefer to go to when I wish to see one in a cinema)

I saw war for the planet of the apes in Dunedin. Ticket cost me ten and it was a nice cinema. Better than the 19.50 in Auckland.

So not a trivial irritation then, in fact should be in the good times thread?
