Because people want some approximation of the look and feel of the vintage console and playing experience? It's not like the Mini-Snes is being produced instead of these games being released on the switch VC, that'll happen eventually anyway

@  RichardT1977 : (26 June 2017 - 06:39 PM)

Sega did it with some of their Genesis titles for the PS3 and XBox 360, and Midway did the same. Several times.

@  RichardT1977 : (26 June 2017 - 06:39 PM)

Instead of making classic consoles with classic games built in, why not release those games in classic sets for the Switch?

@  Rycochet : (26 June 2017 - 06:25 PM)

The fate of 2002 MOTU still makes me sad, I loved that line.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 June 2017 - 05:59 PM)

Bah. There are many many toys rarer than Movieverse toys. Any character that wasn't He-Man or Skeletor for instance! :)

@  Paladin : (26 June 2017 - 05:16 PM)

Nintendo consoles are the only things rarer than new waves of Movieverse toys.

@  Telly : (26 June 2017 - 04:12 PM)

*nevermind*

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 June 2017 - 03:48 PM)

Nintendo claims they'll be producing "significantly more" units of the SNES, so maybe there's a chance. It'd be better this time if they just took pre-orders, and based their production on that

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 03:46 PM)

I have yet to see any TR wave 5 items at retail in my area, only in Internet reports from overseas.

@  unluckiness : (26 June 2017 - 09:28 AM)

They're clogging shelves here, which is odd. I expected the Generations toys to be somewhat cut down in favor of movie stuff.

@  Pennpenn : (26 June 2017 - 08:11 AM)

I dunno, I got a bunch of "Blitzwing and Octone cosplaying as Megatron and Optimus Prime" in my local TRU, does that help?

@  Paladin : (26 June 2017 - 07:52 AM)

so will TitanReturns Blitzwing & Octone ever actually come out or have they just vanished into neverland?

@  Pennpenn : (25 June 2017 - 03:51 AM)

Actually, on the subject of TLK toys, the voyager Nitro Zues or whatver looks pretty good. If I see it cheap I might give it to the Thunderwing head.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 09:58 PM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 June 2017 - 09:50 AM)

What he's really doing is buying all the sideswipe, so that after the apocolypse.. He'll have an army to take ove the world!

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 09:00 AM)

We could be taking this the wrong way. What if this person means to sacrifice their own money to prevent Armada Sideswipes from falling into the hands of those who don't know better?

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 06:26 AM)

People say silly things online all the time, usually followed by a smilie or a wink. Take away the context and they go from being a joke to absurd hyperbole.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 06:07 AM)

But that would miss the entire point of hyperbole.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 06:03 AM)

Well that's a stupid attitude from someone who would waste a lot of money. I mean, they should just... not buy movie toys?

@  Bass X0 : (24 June 2017 - 04:52 AM)

Most insane thing I read of the day: "I would rather buy 100 Armada Sideswipes and PRiD Airachnids than buy any Bayformers crap"

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:10 PM)

His dialogue is full of allusions to his infamous lookalike, though sometimes as subversions. Oh, and sometimes he sings Karaoke. Check his rendition of "My Way", it's on Youtube.

Kara's high and mighty speech about James being too human to be a superhero like her might have had more weight to it if she hadn't just recently teamed up with a whole slew of superpower-less human heroes on another Earth a little while ago.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

Actually, Alex may make it worse.  All the anxiety Kara has regarding friends and loved ones who go into danger already, she's projecting on the two she thought were relatively safe but who are now throwing themselves into danger too.

Hate to dig up an old issue from when the show first began, but Kara's concern for James putting himself in danger might feel more justified if the guy actually looked like his less-macho comic counterpart instead of looking like (as Sean Whitmore put it, back on Page 9) a guy who could "bench-press a Buick".

Okay, we know that the M'gann that came into the DEO with J'onn was the first impostor, and we know later than both Winn and Alex get captured and impersonated by each White Martian, but what doesn't make sense is when the lights go out after J'onn fights the fake M'gann, there's no time for either Alex or Winn to have been grabbed, carried off, tied up, and replaced all before we see everyone grouped together during lockdown. Either Winn or Alex had to have been a fake from the very beginning of the scene before the fake M'gann is exposed, but that still doesn't leave any time for other one of the two to have been switched out when the lights went out.

Why even assume that the imposter had to be one of the people in the room? J'onn later tells the two agents to "take a team", so there's obviously other people in the base.

Why did Alex change into her tactical wear to have a heart to heart with Kara? I thought that was a hint that she was a Martian, but nope, the real one was dressed that way too...

As a spelling Nazi, that "CORE STABLIZED" alert bugged me :p

Poor J'onn... :'(

Headcanon: until and unless contradicted, the new alien love interest Lyra is the CW-verse version of Comet/Biron.  In Super-Horse form, she's a small green pony.

I seriously thought that Winn was going to wake up with a hundred eggs in his stomach after his date with Lyra. But if it's a real relationship that has nothing to do with Kara, then good for him.

Because I was curious, I checked the social media accounts for Hamilton, and none mentioned this show, so Mon-El and Mxy weren't fighting on the real stage. (I guess it makes sense that, with all those sold-out performances, there's no time to have a TV show messing around in their theater.)

I only just noticed this, but doess Kara go to the DEO dressed in civilian clothes that often? That's not smart...

Even though the CGI wasn't the best, I loved Kara fighting the Jor-El statue, that's exactly the kind of nutball stuff that should happen when Mxy is around.

Regarding the theater, it was probably a local one in Vancouver they used.

 

I had the same thought about Kara.  Why is she waltzing around the DEO in her civies?  Does everyone know her secret identity there?

 

Did someone forget that she has a secret identity since most of the main cast (if not all of the main cast) know it?

 

I also wondered why Winn went to the alien bar alone?  Granted for story purposes, but would a normal human really go there that often?  Especially when the drunk aliens seem more dangerous than the average human drunk.

Does skipping out on a date and going straight to a booty call two nights in a row, while barely knowing each other even count as a relationship?

Good intentions or not, right now, Winn is just her lovesick boy-toy.
