Dude got off pretty lightly, there are far worse things to be turned into than a cat if you think about it.

@  Pennpenn : (26 October 2016 - 06:22 PM)

Wasn't the cat a person who'd been transformed into a cat as a punishment? If so, was Salem his actual name as a human? Because calling a cat that is one thing, naming a child that is another...

Hey, careful with that joke there, it's an antique.

@  Bass X0 : (26 October 2016 - 03:42 PM)

The witches from the show "Sabrina" have a cat named Salem. That's like a Jewish family having a cat named Auschwitz.

I hope whatever line follows Titans Return gives us more large Autobot Targetmasters, I want a new Crosshairs even if it ends up being a retool of the inevitable Kup.

I hate how small objects disappear into some kind of space-time breach when dropped, making it nearly impossible to find them.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (25 October 2016 - 04:42 PM)

I recall a Blurr in that '86 movie boxset. Drift retool Blurr that is. Is that set still happening?

@  Bass X0 : (25 October 2016 - 02:05 PM)

I suppose Chromedome would work again repainted red as Pointblank. I'd have preferred that to their Breakaway.

@  Blues : (25 October 2016 - 01:34 PM)

I'm still expecting a blurr with just more paint under the platinum line, but it seems like those random releases slowed down.

@  Bass X0 : (25 October 2016 - 01:31 PM)

There is surprisingly a lack of Deluxe cars in Titans Return. Knowing Hasbro we would get a red repaint of Blurr as Pointblank.

@  Blues : (25 October 2016 - 01:30 PM)

Yeah but I don't own a chromedome, and the only ones around me are nearly twenty dollars

@  Bass X0 : (25 October 2016 - 01:24 PM)

Chromedome is the best mold for Nightbeat and Siren. Blurr and Hot Rod just wouldn't work for either of them.

@  Blues : (25 October 2016 - 01:06 PM)

hmmmm I kinda want to paint my hasbro blurr into a body for takara nightbeat

I'll wait for the Urban Camo version.

@  OrionPax44 : (25 October 2016 - 08:25 AM)

If they wanna make him more authentic they need to make the plastic out of even cheaper materials. I want that KO plastic feel. It won't be Ruination without it.

Yup, the new figure's bio on TakTom Mall mentions it.

@  The Doctor Who : (24 October 2016 - 10:40 PM)

Then skip to 20, then back to 5, then to 10, then to 47, then back to 30, then 50, then 22, then...

@  Liege : (24 October 2016 - 08:01 PM)

Start at 1

@  Benbot : (24 October 2016 - 07:10 PM)

So should you start at issue one, or are there later jumping in points?

@  Liege : (24 October 2016 - 06:33 PM)

Totally agree: 1-50 is like Ultimate Turtles in the sense it takes all that has come before and mixes it into a satisfying revigoration that still feels fresh. I read a few issues after 50 and felt lost because I missed some of the miniseries.

@  Anguirus : (24 October 2016 - 06:02 PM)

current bit ymmv but 1-50 is a triumphant reinvention of the turtles. I can only compare it to that point in 2012 with RiD/MtMtE when we all realized "wait, TF comics can be THIS?"

@  Liege : (24 October 2016 - 05:57 PM)

It was great up til issue 50. The current direction is an interesting one (splinter and the turtles lead the foot) but the execution is lacking imho.

@  Bass X0 : (24 October 2016 - 03:13 PM)

Never read it. What was so bad about it?

@  D.M : (24 October 2016 - 10:14 AM)

Extremely no. >:p

@  Anguirus : (24 October 2016 - 09:22 AM)


@  Benbot : (24 October 2016 - 08:10 AM)

Is the IDW TMNT series worth reading?

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 October 2016 - 07:13 AM)

Nothing but bag of nickels for the next few years.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 October 2016 - 04:13 PM)

Get some extra shelves to store your shelves on.

@  Telly : (22 October 2016 - 08:53 PM)

@  The Doctor Who : (22 October 2016 - 02:34 PM)

@Andrusi:  Too many toys or not enough shelves, eh?

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 October 2016 - 11:15 AM)

Needs more dakka shelves.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 October 2016 - 08:41 AM)

"Too many toys" for the shelf, you see.

@  Pennpenn : (22 October 2016 - 08:34 AM)

Bah! That isn't too many toys, that's not enough shelf space!

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 October 2016 - 07:42 AM)

You know, too many toys. That thing where you can't figure out how to cram the newest one onto the shelf.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 October 2016 - 02:18 AM)

When you can't see the floor anymore.


Holy celebrity roast, Batman!

Legends of the Super-Heroes (mini-series) - Adam West/Burt Ward/Frank Gorshin-Starring 2-Part Special Coming to DVD!

1979 production with Ed McMahon was actually a double spin-off, of the live-action Batman AND the animated Super Friends!
Posted by David Lambert

After the classic live-action late-'60s Batman series went off the air, stars Adam West and Burt Ward were still highly recognizable as the Dynamic Duo. One appearance they made together as Batman and Robin came in 1979, at the height of the popularity of the Saturday morning cartoon series Super Friends (which began in 1973, and had a dozen-year run in various incarnations...most noticeably the late-'70s version Challenge of the Super Friends). In 1979, Hanna-Barbera capitalized on the fans of both shows with a 2-episode prime time live-action special titled "Legends of the Super-Heroes", which aired on NBC that January.

The first episode was titled "The Challenge", and the second part was titled "The Roast". Besides West and Ward, Frank Gorshin also returned from Batman in his legendary role as The Riddler. Other classic DC Comics heroes and villains also were in the production, including many that were known primarily at the time for their Super Friends appearances. The bad guys on the Legion of Doom included Sinestro (Charlie Callas), Giganta, Solomon Grundy, The Weather Wizard, Doctor Sivana, Aunt Minerva (played by Ruth Buzzi), and Mordru the Merciless. Joining the Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder on the Justice League were Green Lantern, The Flash, Hawkman, Black Canary, The Atom, The Huntress, Captain Marvel and a new hero: Ghetto Man. Also appearing was William Schallert (The Patty Duke Show) as "Scarlet Cyclone" (a.k.a., "Retired Man"). Hosting the second episode, "The Roast", is none other than Ed McMahon (The Tonight Show, Star Search)! You'll also hear the voice of Narrator Gary Owens (Rowan & Martin's Laugh-in) and briefly see a pre-Night Court Marsha Warfield in an uncredited bit part.

Warner Brothers has announced today at the New York Comic Con that this rarely-seen production will come to DVD exclusively through their WBshop.com online store's manufacture-on-demand (MOD) program. Available starting October 19th, the cost will be $19.95 for a 100-minute disc. You can pre-order Legends of the Super-Heroes right away, and lock in a copy of this DVD for your collection. Be aware, though, that as usual this MOD title will only be available to ship to U.S. destinations (we don't have any of the details, but we are given to understand that this is due to legal reasons, rather than any studio limitations). Package art isn't available yet, but here's the studio's description of the release:

Heroes and villains of DC Comics square off in the two-part, live-action, made-for-TV (with a laugh track!) smackdowns of Legends of the Super Heroes. The Challenge: Batman and Robin (Adam West and Burt Ward of the live-action Batman TV series) lead The Flash, Green Lantern and more JLA members against The Riddler (Frank Gorshin reprising his TV role), Mordru, Weather Wizard and other Doom-dealers. The Legion's ultimate gambit: trick the heroes into downing a diabolical depowering drink! The Roast: Poking fun beats swapping punches when celebrity host Ed McMahon emcees a rowdy rave-up. Who knew DC Super Heroes and villains packed as much verbal wit as physical grit when not locked in mortal combat? These Legends will leave you laughing.

Y'see, even the Editor of the Enquirer has to draw the pun line somewhere, and you just obliterated that line with a big huge cannon filled with vast amounts of gunpowder.

They really don't bother truly restoring that many old TV series... though the DVDs should still look as good as the show ever has.

Ghetto Man.


He's an incredibly stereotypical blaxploitation superhero. He criticizes the Justice League for not being integrated, declaring, "Green Lantern doesn't qualify as 'colored people.'" And that's only the beginning.
