Essential Stanley Kubrick collection? GIMME GIMME GIMME!

Hot damn! The Kubrick Collection, Attack on Titan boxset and the printed Saga volumes have all caught my eye.

I don't want to be overly critical, but Funimation hasn't allowed pre-orders of any Attack on Titan merchandise as of yet. I don't even think Funimation has announced a complete boxset of the series, just that they were going to dub it. So you might want to edit that out, whoever is in charge of this list.

EDIT: Please see the comment below mine for proper (and truthful) information.

Pre-orders for the Attack of Titan DVD, part 1 went live back in October. The manga, published by Kodansha Comics, is readily available. For Attack on Titan fans, a manga plus pre-order bundle seems like an awesome gift, but the pre-order is TBD, so if you don't want to wait for a pre-order, you can always stream all 25 episodes for free on the Funimation site!

Thanks for correcting me! I saw the Amazon pre-order prior to posting my comment, but I thought it was more-or-less Amazon acting on its own volition because it knew that AOT was going to sell like made (at least for anime standards).

SOOOOOO about the Mech......*ahem* I mean THE GOD D@#% MECH!!! I was unaware this thing existed in such a perfect form....adjusting new life goal, "earn 1.4 million dollars."

SAMSUNG 840 250G SSD
Greg says: They say adding a bootup SSD to your PC is the easiest way to boost performance, and, in this instance, "they" are absolutely correct! I upgraded my gaming rig with this solid-state drive this year and it has added years to my aging hardware. Put your OS and your games on the drive, and load times are reduced to seconds instead of minutes, and games with texture intensive rendering start to sing again. Of course, it's not as fast as a rig with an i7, 16 gb of RAM and SLI graphics cards, but an SSD like this one will get your games playing again on the cheap.

I've actually been looking into this exact model recently. Anyone know if all the main issues have been solved? I really don't like hearing stories of it lasting 2 weeks to 6 months with replacements not lasting any longer. I know reviews are 90% positive but still... I'm cloning* my OS to an SSD and I'm worried if it messes up.

*-With the way my OS environment is right now, a fresh install is not an option.

I completely agree with you on the Amazon listing. It looks super shady at first glace, if only because it doesn't list Funimation as the store owner on the top like most of its other direct sale listings.

Also list, though if I had more money then I knew what to do with, I wouldn't buy replica Tiger tanks, I'd restore real ones! Along with all the other ones I could get my hands on.

I'd also have some real beskar'gam made, along with building myself Minis Tirith.

Really need to work on their board-game recommendations...
