Is the name on the card "Martha"?

@  MEDdMI : (24 June 2016 - 01:18 PM)

Not sure, but he has a Bat Credit Card!

@  RichardT1977 : (24 June 2016 - 01:04 PM)

Does he also have a Bat Channel Machine?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (23 June 2016 - 09:33 PM)

I'm having one right now!

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 June 2016 - 09:29 PM)

He uses it to make sure we have a Bat Time.

@  Waspinator : (23 June 2016 - 09:20 PM)

He has a Bat Time Machine.

@  Bass X0 : (23 June 2016 - 07:00 PM)

even with comic book time, the amount of adventures Batman has been on throughout his career would last several decades in real time.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 June 2016 - 05:01 PM)

Batman died years ago. Death is just afraid to tell him.

@  Razorsaw : (23 June 2016 - 05:00 PM)

You know who else hasn't aged in decades? Batman.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 June 2016 - 04:04 PM)

Ash is a daywalking vampire. The reason we never see most of his companions again after he leaves a region is that they're too drained of vitality to survive without him.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2016 - 04:03 PM)

Does Ash have a rival? Can anyone be his equal?

@  Bass X0 : (23 June 2016 - 03:27 PM)

Its my belief that humans in the Pokémon universe don't age like we do and instead have to level up and evolve like the Pokémon do. Ash has yet to evolve into a teenager.

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 June 2016 - 03:16 PM)

Increasingly, my birthday feels less like a celebration of continued survival, and more reminders of just how little I've accomplished in my life

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 June 2016 - 03:09 PM)

Ash is immortal. He has inside him blood of Pokemon masters.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (23 June 2016 - 03:05 PM)

So... 10+20=9? Learn something new every day, I guess.

@  The Doctor Who : (23 June 2016 - 03:02 PM)

Answer: Nine.

@  Bass X0 : (23 June 2016 - 02:44 PM)

Simple maths: If Ash Ketchum leaves to become a Pokémon trainer on his tenth birthday, how old will he be twenty years later?

@  unluckiness : (23 June 2016 - 08:39 AM)

Groove has such a weird grumpy old man face and the biggest chin outside of Animated. Add to that the icky yellow and it's like they wanted his face to be ugly.

@  zephyrX9 : (22 June 2016 - 07:44 PM)

nothing can ever get me to care about a character whose powers are "PREHENSILE HAIR TENTACLES"

@  Broadside : (22 June 2016 - 05:10 PM)

And... I guess that's what they did with Kamala Khan? And surprise surprise, she's probably the only popular character to come out of all this.

@  Broadside : (22 June 2016 - 05:09 PM)

I just wish they'd make Inhumans "okay, they're a thing, now let's stop pretending they matter". Make 'em how mutants used to be: an excuse to not give a character an origin story. Not every "oh they're an inhuman" character has to be intimately involved with Inhuman plots.

@  Bass X0 : (22 June 2016 - 02:54 PM)

Even satire is subject to quality review. There is good satire and bad satire after all. Just because something is intended to be satire doesn't give it a free pass to be bad satire.

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 June 2016 - 12:40 PM)

Then the movie happened, and now I'm more apt to watch a GotG cartoon than I am any of the other Marvel cartoons

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 June 2016 - 12:40 PM)

All I knew about Guardians of the Galaxy was that they were in space and a talking raccoon was part of the team

@  Telly : (22 June 2016 - 12:19 PM)

theyd have to be REALLY DAMN GOOD to get me to care about the inhumans. i think them being all over in agents of shield is part of why i stopped watching

@  Rycochet : (22 June 2016 - 11:49 AM)

Because given the opportunity, a good writer can make you care about new characters.

@  Paladin : (22 June 2016 - 11:45 AM)

the fact that they're not X-Men so they don't have to cut FOX a check yet?

@  wonko the sane? : (22 June 2016 - 10:31 AM)

The ridiculous gobs of cash they've made off their other franchises?

@  Summer : (22 June 2016 - 10:24 AM)

Marvel, I can only name half of the original 6 Inhumans, what makes you think I would care about these new ones?

@  Pennpenn : (22 June 2016 - 09:00 AM)

The sky is currently black. On account of it being midnight (in the eastern states at least)

Nike Football champions the TRANSFORMERS “More Than Meets the Eye” qualities of Calvin Johnson, Jr. by teaming up with Hasbro on the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max. As a special addition, the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max is sold with a first ever Hasbro TRANSFORMERS action figure designed for an athlete in conjunction with a shoe release.

 

So if you can still buy the figures on eBay for $15, it'll be much cheaper for you :D

One thing I couldn't tell - does anyone know if the ones on ebay were complete?  Hard to tell with the way the gun forms (I don't own the figure though, maybe it makes more sense in person).

They were complete. Both gun halves and the football.

As a nerd, I'm threatened and angry about sports appearing in my robot toys. They should have made one with Bob Budiansky's logo on it and sold it with Bob Budiansky-branded typewriter ink.

 

EDIT: In less facetious news, the Air Trainer SCIIs are awesome. I love how Action Mastery they are.

So how long do you guys think this will be out before we hear a horrible toy swap story? "Um, I'm pretty sure these shoes weren't supposed to come with War for Cybertron Megatron. And I'm pretty sure the shoes weren't supposed to be a worn out pair of Adidas."

I really like the presentation of this thing, from the ornate fold-open box to the Decepticon Nike logo.

The shoes are a bit too showy for my tastes, though.

 

Those Fox NFL robots are pretty cool, but if Hasbro partnered with the NFL..... they're opening themselves up to an entirely new market that spends billions upon billions annually on whatever crap they'll stick their logo on. Orange and navy transforming bear? Yes, please. And for the people who dislike sports, you'd potentially have some great beast Transformer custom fodder!

That huge set with the three pairs of shoes, transforming box, and Calvatron is limited to 81 sets or am I reading that wrong? Either way price will not be pretty...


In honor of Johnson’s number, 81 Megatron Rises Packs will release exclusively at 21 Mercer in NYC, select Nike Yardline doors, and Nike.com . The CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max and the Megatron Nike Air Trainer SC II will be available at select Nike retail locations and online at nike.com

MEGATRON is a trademark of Hasbro and is used with permission.  © 2013 Hasbro.   All Rights Reserved.  Licensed by Hasbro.

 

Glad there's just the straight forward shoes with Calvatron option, but naturally I'd rather have the other pair of shoes that doesn't include Megatron...grrr...

 

Also, this is just a brilliant move by Hasbro.   Hopefully, it does a lot to break down the barrier of negative stereotyping for toy collecting outside of fan circles.    Then again, I may be optimistic and we may see a lot of Calvatrons on ebay after some people get their kicks.

If Nike is only selling 81 full sets (or just 81 Megatrons?), that might explain why there are so many to be had on ebay.

I like the color scheme, the tiny 'con football, and the packaging. The shoes, however, look trashy as hell (I guess that's what's popular) and I don't really care for individual celebrities getting, essentially, custom TFs (I didn't care for LP Soundwave, either).


Repaints for teams sounds like a cool idea, though.

The purple is a bit much. Now if they came in the color of the Lions I'd be down. Imagine those shoes in a nice blue and grey.

 

Hell, I'd love a burgundy and gold Optimus Prime.
