TMW you see a bunch of people have liked something you posted while you were away, and you're like "what did I even say?!"

@  Bass X0 : (26 July 2016 - 05:26 PM)

Regarding MTMTE#55 being released early in some places, its okay to discuss the contents of the issue as long as spoilers are kept within the thread. I refuse to read discussion threads of comics I have yet to read to avoid being spoiled. I also find it pointless to go into a discussion thread and expect to not be spoiled if you have yet to read the issue (unless you don't care).

@  Locoman : (25 July 2016 - 07:16 PM)

My story begins in nineteen-dickety-two. We had to say "dickety" because the Kaiser had stolen our word "twenty". I chased that rascal to get it back, but gave up after dickety-six miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2016 - 07:01 PM)

I thought King Kong '05 was pretty great! I just wish I hadn't watched it as a double feature with that movie about the island with the giant bugs.

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 04:46 PM)

yeah it was long as hell, it took me several days to finish it.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 11:58 AM)

maybe this new one won't take half a day to watch all the way through...

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 11:00 AM)

I believe this new Kong movie will not be as good as the 2005 one.

@  Pennpenn : (24 July 2016 - 08:52 AM)

You'd figure something like that would get a pass, some kind of grandfather clause since the name is already intractably established.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 08:15 AM)

"DS-1 Orbital Battle Station." That's the official classification...

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 08:04 AM)

now that Hasbro can't use the word "Death" on the packaging of their toys, what will they call the Death Star?

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 07:44 AM)

It's in the comic con trailer and seems like a hideous waste. I guess the show makers have no reverence for Doctor Who like they do Star Trek.

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 04:20 AM)

Which is the height of quality for Family Guy jokes...

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 04:00 AM)

David Tennent has done a cutaway for Family Guy. Don't get to excited it was a fart joke.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 03:17 PM)

"Micronauts: Starring psychic Peter Quill and E123-Omega".

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 03:16 PM)

Ooh, sounds neat.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 01:16 PM)

Yeah, the first was definitely the weakest of the three. Really looking forward to the next issue; judging by the preview for it, it's delving into Karza and Shazraella's past and Microspace's exact political situation.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 01:11 PM)

I was ambivalent about the first issue, but the quality stepped up in the second and again in the third.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:37 AM)

And yes, Micronauts is great! I enjoyed the first three issues quite a lot.

Kudos to Fun Pub for listening to the fans and adding a spot for Runamuck while also being able to cover it up with the bio card.

I miss the black around Drift's eyes. I don't recall if other things have changed on him.

I don't really have much interest in an SG Drift as it is, though I may still pre-order him. Just not right away. I don't think there will be a huge run, so if it can wait a week or two I'll pick him up as a Classics Knockout (Even though it doesn't have the same resemblence it did when it was first shown), because I like the Knockout character and doubt he's going to get a Classics the same way Lugnut did.

I don't know if you can answer this question or not, but I'll give it a try...

I get that Over-Run is a name required for trademark reasons. That is how the toy has to be sold.

What I'm not sure I get is why it follows that the name has to be used on not only the packaging, but the Tech Specs. Surely the Tech Specs could have used the real name? Or, if not, why not? You're not selling the Tech Specs! (And, I actually ask the same in regard to the packaging, since you're not using the package to sell from, as if on a shelf at a brick-and-mortar store. The only use of the name in actual trade is online...)

I think it's because the paperwork is the only evidence you have for your copyright/trademarks. Like if Bandai produced a Gundam who on their website was listed as OP-83, but on the packaging was called Optimus Prime. Officially it might be called OP-83, but the packaging is infringing on Hasbro's trademark/copyright.

Also the techspecs and box are part of the complete package you are selling, not just the toy.

Woo, a spot for Runamuck! I like that.

Not that any of my BotCon/Club boxes actually HAVE any guys in them currently, since it's easier to just ziplock bag them and throw them in a tub with everyone else, but that's still an awesome touch.

I think you're misreading it. Not ((both his swords) AND (two guns)), but (both (his swords) AND (two guns)).

Still, nice figures, nice packaging.

So, who's parked in front of the net obsessively already?

I've got a kid's dentist appointment tonight at 5pm and story time at the library tomarrow between 10 and 11:30am and I already have "What if they go up for sale then" agita...

Well, about Over Run at least, Driftpool would be a pass for me even at retail.


-ZacWilliam, I know they have to wait for the ok, but a little more of a window than "soon" would be really nice...

I'm not sure I buy that last sentence of explanation, but would welcome more information to support it. Although my original question was intended to include the package, I can see the possible explanation for that part, but I still can't figure why the Tech Specs have to fall in that same problem. If the toy were packaged with Tech Specs that had a different name, how would that be a potential violation of someone else's trademark?
