They make a lot of pills for that.

@  Nevermore : (19 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

I got the results of the test back. I definitely have no sense of humor.

@  Paladin : (18 June 2019 - 05:59 PM)

so anyway how is your sex life?

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 June 2019 - 10:50 AM)

These jokes are tearing me apart.

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 08:55 AM)

Only if the customer reviews give it all high marks.

@  Patch : (18 June 2019 - 04:42 AM)

Are they going to call it "I-Did-Nawtflix?"

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 12:48 AM)

I see, so what the world needs is a Tommy Wiseau streaming service.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 11:02 PM)

Well, Conan did start the trend that resulted in a wave of Barbarian films in the mid to late 80s

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2019 - 10:57 PM)

I keep wanting to read Corman as Conan

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:29 PM)

There needs to be some streaming service that caters to connoisseurs of schlock. Otherwise, a huge part of our cultural history will be wiped away. While many of these films are available on blu-ray, with more coming out each month, it's good they're also available for the streaming crowd.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:18 PM)

Corman did make an impressive number of barbarian films back in the day. If impressive is the word

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:11 PM)

I mean, where else are you going to see the entire Roger Corman barbarian fantasy library (legally) for free?

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:09 PM)

Oh Tubi TV, you are a haven for terrible films. Netflix, Hulu and Crackle all push for mainstream appeal and prestige, you got the guts to have ready access to dregs even the SyFy channel wouldn't air

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

Also you have Bayonetta and a bunch of Fire Emblem people.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

...I mean, Tales character. Probably up to/for it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 01:26 PM)

But what if I need to kill a god? Or several of them?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

Kratos is allowed, but only the one from Tales of Symphonia

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 10:56 AM)

So no Kratos?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:42 AM)

In any case I'd rather have another Fire Emblem character than another character from a PlayStation exclusive game who teeeeeechnically was in a spinoff.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:39 AM)

Kong had his name on the games first, but Mario was the protagonist first. It's debatable.

@  Rycochet : (17 June 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Wouldn't Mario be the one spun off from the Donkey Kong franchise, given that Kong was first?

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 05:19 AM)

I would count Wario and Yoshi, but not DK (might be because I wasn't even aware DK was spun off from the Mario franchise until I was in my mid-20s, but whatever)

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:13 AM)

But to be fair, Corrin is the only one I particularly dislike and it's really more boredom due to their blandness as characters

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:09 AM)

It would depend on whether or not you count DK, Wario and Yoshi as part of the Mario franchise or separate. Scratch that, there are more Mario characters even with just the mushroom symbol people but it's a close call.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 02:55 AM)

You'd figure Fire Emblem would have enough characters in Smash. Kinda feels like there's more FE characters than Mario characters.

@  unluckiness : (16 June 2019 - 01:20 AM)

And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 June 2019 - 04:11 PM)

Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

@  unluckiness : (15 June 2019 - 09:36 AM)

@  SG Roadbuster : (15 June 2019 - 09:36 AM)

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 10:38 PM)

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

they HAVE to put Travis Touchdown in at some point now, right???

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Right after Shaq.

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 08:09 AM)

Pipe dream Smash entry: The Prince from the Katamari series. :D

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 06:35 AM)

The space/time around them gets frozen too! ....or something.

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 06:01 AM)

I still want to find out how freezing people suspends them in midair

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Given Nintendo's relationship with Tecmo, I'm still waiting for Ryu Hyabusa

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 June 2019 - 07:19 PM)

I'm still waiting for Doomguy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I just started watching High School DxD (don't judge me...) and I caught on the Nintendo Treehouse some request Rias for Smash lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

I have having to watch a video to find out why someone wanted me to watch the video

@  Nevermore : (11 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

I remember when the TPB for The Dark Age 2 was delayed for an entire year...

@  Trpodeca : (11 June 2019 - 03:55 AM)

I just wish they'd release the Astro City paperback trades.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:31 AM)

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

I missed out on most of BW, the few figures I have are only a few stray figures I found online or repaints in later lines

All those BW figures makes me envious
I SO wish I had some of those man

Oh, and that last shot of Magmatron with his troops from the BW comics

*sigh* If only I could find them now at a decent price

hm... and why those ?
those weren't featured at al in the comics, unless you mean, the updated forms, which again, weren't seen

I meant TM2 tripred becasue he was shown as Ravage, and I thought it'd be cool to have him in a standing beast mode next to Magmatron

maybe I wasn't very clear
sorry

He'd fit there as well, but as-is I have him standing on my "Season Two" shelf, since he appeared in "Agenda" there. By all rights, it should be the Japanese Ravage X-9 but I've never managed to find him. icon-screamer.gif Maybe I'll move him back and forth from time to time.

DT = DragonTail.

He's a great Fan Fic writer over in Chronicles who has a habit of making such good and fascinating characters out of otherwise passable toys, that you're then forced to go buy them strictly because of how cool he made them in his stories.

Go check out his stuff. Go now!!

Ah dont' worry Wingus, I missed the comic shot of the Maximals, it was the Predacon shot that really stood out casue Ursa Magnus laid it out almost exactly like the first scene from the comic where they just teleported into the time line
Was an awesome scene showing off those characters in comic form

*drools*

I completely skipped the beast era in my collecting... have barely a few of the toys from those lines. Most of my beastformers are ARM/EN/CYB era, and even then only those I've used in my fics.

That said, this has impressed the heck out of me. Great display sense, fantastic choice of groupings, nice clean lines... not just the toys themselves, but the lay-out you've used is fantastic and worthy of praise. Excellent design sense you have there, brother.

With regards to the toys: I wish I knew who even half of them were, because I'm suddenly seized with the mad need to write about the lot of them. Maybe one day we can team up on that or something, because it'd be cool. And I see my boy Convobat/Bat Optimus Primal there, front and centre, so I'm cheering.

Top stuff!

Nothing wrong with that. They're great toys, and the only reason the Armada Beasts reside with the Universe stuff on my shelves is because of their use as Unicron's Four Horsemen. Otherwise, they'd proudly stand displayed with the ArmEnerTron guys.

And behold, the True Path!!!

Thanks. I tried to group them in a way that made the most sense design and "season"-wise. Transmetals and 2's all together, etc.

Thanks for the words, brother. ConvoBat has always been a neat little guy. He's so well-proportioned and poseable that I constantly find myself fiddling with him, and trying to think of a good backstory for him outside of being another incarnation of Optimus Primal.

Also, since I told you how I consider the Cybertron guys all Maximals and Predacons, I kind of keep the SupremeScream there for a sense of scale. In my mind, I figure the ratio between those guys and Screamer would be about right for Ancient Autobots/Decepticons and Maximals/Predacons.

We meant the gray version. "ConvoBat" is just a handy way of referring to him. And "Batimus Primal" doesn't have the same ring. icon-hotrod.gif
