I both love and hate that the Alien franchise seems to have had more luck finding a niche as a line of children's toys than it has at producing worthwhile films.

@  Donocropolis : (17 January 2020 - 06:35 AM)

I've seen them on the shelves at Walmart. They're pretty great looking retro Aliens toys. https://www.walmart....-Vary/934039489

@  fourteenwings : (17 January 2020 - 01:11 AM)

IIRC somebody on here mentioned an unbranded Alien toy a couple of weeks ago? It seems like it was actually part of a collection for the Alien movie series by Lanard. Mattel's making some stuff too.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 January 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Is it really a worse name than say, HMS Spanker?

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 January 2020 - 02:36 PM)

'Boaty McBoatface' was a actual thing?! Wow.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (14 January 2020 - 02:00 PM)

Might be worth bringing back this thread.

@  ThunderWear : (14 January 2020 - 01:53 PM)

Of course I had the idea to download all the pdfs like a week too late. Anyone got an archive?

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 January 2020 - 12:48 PM)

The Collector Club is dead. Seems like it all came down shortly after New Year

@  ThunderWear : (13 January 2020 - 11:06 PM)

I can't get to the collector club website. anyone else? I was literally going to download all the fiction to finish reading.

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 January 2020 - 04:50 AM)

Even in fallout, they never carpet bombed with nukes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 January 2020 - 12:43 PM)

I hope the stockpiled nuclear weapons of the US and Russia are accounted for then.

@  Nevermore : (12 January 2020 - 12:22 PM)

Geez. 1760 (!) bombs from World War II that had not detonated and were still armed have been found. That's only the numbers for the federal state of Germany I live in, and only for the first three quarters of 2019. For all of 2018, the total number was 2811 (!!) bombs.

@  CVReynolds : (11 January 2020 - 11:05 PM)

I've been wanting a Tarantulas that turns into a more realistic tarantula for a long time. Maybe Takara will someday do a Masterpiece, which would be neat. But I really want to see a modernized look like in the IDW comics.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 January 2020 - 09:43 PM)

We need more Waspinators.. and rattraps.

@  Ashley : (11 January 2020 - 07:09 PM)

I'm on board with that

@  Dekafox : (11 January 2020 - 06:17 PM)

What I'm hearing is we need Cyberverse Waspinator

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 January 2020 - 01:27 AM)

He's appeared across more branding changes than Waspinator, so maybe it's more the other way around.

@  Ashley : (10 January 2020 - 12:01 AM)

is C3PO the Waspinator of Star Wars? he'll live forever, because it's funny for him to suffer

@  Sabrblade : (09 January 2020 - 11:52 PM)

He's still waiting for them to be funny.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 January 2020 - 10:35 PM)

I mean, it is easier to protect HDDs, and you can retransfer the data over and over forever?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 January 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Not in this comparison. He's making his own files, so they're (presumably) not restricted by DRM, so he can copy them as many times as he wants. It's potentially more reliable in the long term than hoping the specific copies you originally bought never accrue any damage for the rest of your life.

@  Echowarrior : (09 January 2020 - 10:44 AM)

I prefer physical copies too. Easier to protect something physical and tangible.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 09:55 AM)

I prefer having physical copies.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 January 2020 - 08:56 AM)

I have plenty of physical media I turn into digital media for my plex server. Just finished ripping Ultra Seven

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Isn't the general consensus that we're supposed to be over physical media anyways?

@  Paladin : (09 January 2020 - 08:17 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 January 2020 - 07:35 AM)

My current TV works just fine. I don't see a need to upgrade. And by the time I do, the Next Big Thing will probably be out anyway.

@  Benbot : (09 January 2020 - 03:58 AM)

Me neither. I'm no rebel, though. I'm just poor.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 03:38 AM)

I haven't gone 4K yet, I'm a rebel.

@  Ashley : (07 January 2020 - 11:50 PM)

the comic theme is amazing

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Sounds like Victor Caroli but I’m not sure.

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 02:35 PM)

Should I recognise the narrator of the Mutant Hunt trailer?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 January 2020 - 04:30 AM)

I got me Titans Return Blaster, now watch them unveil Earthrise Blaster and Generations Perceptor, a retool of Titans Blaster.

@  ThunderWear : (06 January 2020 - 10:22 PM)

I recently switched to to the comic theme here at the Allspark and I'm so happy I just want to look at it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (06 January 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Can you not take so many lines to say anything?

@  fourteenwings : (06 January 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Iunno, maybe people having unique pronunciations of things re:how they understand language makes the world a more colourful place, rather than one where we correct every seemingly grievous error?

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:12 AM)

Others insist on "Michael Yackson".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:01 AM)

Because the very combination of those sounds is unknown to them, and thus they avoid it as if it were contagious.

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:00 AM)

For example, the English "J" sound consists of sounds that exist in German: Basically, it's just a "d" sound followed by a very soft "sh". Yet there are many Germans who insist on calling the late King of Pop "Michael Checkson".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 05:58 AM)

I'm talking about names that should pe easily pronouncable if you just bothered to pay attention to how it's done correctly instead of insisting on "I speak X language and this is how I prounounce it!"

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 05:57 AM)

I'm not even talking about foreign names that have sounds that don't exist in the speaker's language.

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 05:56 AM)

Something that really irks me is when people are persistently ignorant about the correct pronunciation of foreign names, especially when it's people they either admire or frequently interact with on a daily basis.

Given how long it took me to get five lions...and how much of a pain in the ass it was...I'm not even bothering with this unless I can find a set. I mean, if I failed in getting all of the lions to formVoltron, I would have still had some awesome looking Lion toys. Here, I'd just be stuck with some really oddly shaped space ships.

That is cool though and I hope Netflix gives it a series.

I don't know why Bandai makes these things so hard to get.  I set my alarm for 3AM on preorder day and even then I just barely managed to get one.  Maybe.  We'll find out in November.

That makes no sense, though.  People are willing to pay the price they've already set.  They're only limiting their profit by making the product so scarce.  I don't think their MSRP is unreasonable at all.  It seems more reasonable to have a completely open preorder period with no limit and then manufacture the number of units that were sold.

It's possible that they already had the number to make locked in with the factory, though in that case they could've opened preorders earlier enough so they could adjust.

Ok, I only just watched the final episode of the season.

Blurg. It wasn't very good. They should have ended it with the liberation of Earth in the last season.

Didn't like Honerva being the final bad guy. I thought Lotor was actually back inside the mech. Dumb that the Princess was gone.

Though I do like the weird idea that Chip of Vehicle Voltron is a robot, hehe. And I'm so happy that Shiro didn't marry that videographer from that one shot ep (there were a couple of superfluous eps in the season).

Anyway, the final season was weak. Now I'll read the comments from the previous pages.

You should also watch the two videos I posted on Page 94. They explain a lot of what happened behind-the-scenes that resulted in the lackluster latter half of the series.

I read the back pages (you guys seemed to have liked the ending, which I didn't feel). Saw the two part video and I'm going to watch it, yeah.

Oh, I'm soooooo annoyed that Coran (my favorite character, haha) didn't get an epilogue thing.

And, yeah, it didn't occur to me until I read the pages that with the reality fracture, Voltron could have teamed up with other Voltron.

The entity did sorta go where? It could have been the secret bad thing all along, an evil quintessence thing, just influencing Honerva, but, no.

I did like seeing the other Paladins.

I need to rewatch the deaths of Zarkon and Lotor. Because for both times, I assumed it was all fake outs and they're still alive. I thought Lotor was inside the mech when it came back.

Hunk's cook ending, I rather like. Cuz I'm dieting and want food, haha. But I want more of Pidge, Robo Chip and the rest of Vehicle Voltron.

Btw, in that previous pages of video of Shiro VA singing, he had a Slav scarf. That's pretty cool merch, hehe

So, how many total unique RoBeast types did Voltron fight? I can barely remember.

1 - Pretty sure there was a first monster
2 - Cool multi eyes on wings on Balmera (fought twice?)
3 - That giant head (helped defeated by Blade of Marmora guy, I think)
4 - A plant monster on Oriande
5 - Zarkon mech (wait, was there one?)
6 - Giant arena creature during the comedy Coran as a ringmaster ep
7 - Lotor Sincline mech
8 - RoBeast soldiers (first appearance, then about... Four after that?)
9 - Honerva combination mech

This is from memory... Did I forget someone?

God dammit, really?  I went through all that trouble ordering one from Japan and paid through the nose for shipping and I could have just ordered it at the last minute from Amazon?  Man alive.

 

 

By the way, I got it weeks ago but still haven't opened it because I was waiting for a special occasion.  Well, I'm not waiting till Christmas, so I might as well play with it now.  I'll let you guys know what I think later.
