@  ZakuConvoy : (20 January 2019 - 07:42 PM)

His one shots and two or three parters are great. But...Dark Age got a little long in the tooth. Not bad, but not my favorite.

@  ZakuConvoy : (20 January 2019 - 07:40 PM)

For me, it's less the delay, and more that Astro City is always best in smaller chunks. The longer story arcs (which is what the OGNs sound like they're aiming for), while not bad, are far from the high points of the series.

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:52 AM)

The recent ongoing series didn't start until what, 2013?

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:51 AM)

Then was continued as a five-issue mini-series ("Local Heroes"), then came a 16-issue maxi-series ("The Dark Age"), plus a couple of standalone specials and two-parters...

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:50 AM)

It started out as a series, but due to Busiek's health problems (?), it was put on hold after six issues, then got relaunched with a new #1, had several delays (again because of Busiek's health issues), was discontinued after #22...

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:49 AM)

I don't get why people are making such a big deal out of Astro City becoming a series of graphic novels now. I mean, it's not like it's always been a steady ongoing series.

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2019 - 08:19 PM)

I'm also only reading the trades. So I'm still missing... two volumes that are currently only available as hardcovers? Three?

@  Trpodeca : (17 January 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Astro City is great. Since I only read the trades, there probably won't be a big change for me.

@  ZakuConvoy : (17 January 2019 - 05:34 PM)

I have. Great series. Hopefully the transition to OGNs will be a smooth one.

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2019 - 07:20 AM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2019 - 10:47 AM)

That said, the old "Nester" character from Nintendo Power IS owned by Nintendo, and I could see a homage in there

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2019 - 10:46 AM)

Because technically DiC created the character, Nintendo does not own him.

@  Paladin : (16 January 2019 - 10:28 AM)

sidebar- why is "Captain N" not in Smash yet? that seems like such an easy option.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2019 - 09:18 AM)

The 90's mario cartoons had exactly three character aspects to work with: fat, italian and plumber. He wasn't exactly wrenching pipes in every episode, so they had to do something...

There's always the three Mario cartoons DiC made back in the 80s.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 09:48 PM)

So they could make a show that everyone would scream was an adventure time knockoff? I get what you're saying, but I can't see it being well received.

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 January 2019 - 08:47 PM)

The fact that Adventure Time was on the air for 8 years and at no point did Nintendo hand the creators a large sack of money and say, "Please make a Mario thing for us" will forever anger me.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 07:03 PM)

There was so much awesome put into design and conception of the super mario bros. movie, and it didn't even need the branding: but it wouldn't have made it to the screen without the branding.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:56 PM)

Many aspects of it have stuck in my memory, though. The boots, the devolution ray, the aesthetic of the dinosaur city

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

I had no idea there was another Mario Bros. movie coming out, though. Doubt it'll top the first one, it was just so bizarre

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

They already act a bit like minions; they just aren't stupid

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 05:35 PM)

The trouble is: I honestly can't decide if making them minions would be better or worse than the continuously shrill voices they've used for the last 20 years.

@  Paladin : (15 January 2019 - 05:27 PM)

hope everyone's ready for Toads to look, act & sound like the Minions forever...

@  Lancer : (15 January 2019 - 04:54 PM)

I mean, considering Illumination is making the new Mario movie, Super Mario Bros. 1993 won't be the worst Mario movie anymore

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 04:36 PM)

"Sir, your pizza's here." "Not now!"

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 04:28 PM)

Actually, yeah. I think I need to watch it again. Great movie.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 03:44 PM)

It's a fun movie with amazing sets. As long as you don't try to connect it to anything else Mario, it's fine.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 03:38 PM)

Damn, I haven't thought about the Super Mario Bros. feature film in forever. Need to watch it again, soon; I can only imagine it gets better with time.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 January 2019 - 03:21 PM)

Re:Zero is a fantastic series.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 03:10 PM)

Yeah it's not a bad concept, it's just that lately the term is associated with "I, a Loser Everyman, Woke Up In a Generic Fantasy Setting Where I'm Super Special So Now Girls Orbit Me"

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 12:59 PM)

So too is the old Super Mario Bros movie

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 12:28 PM)

I went and looked up the term "isekai"... that's not actually as bad as I thought it was going to be.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 12:19 PM)

I'm not sure, but the cartoon segments of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show are.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 12:12 PM)

Which Amiibo?

Just based in my 5B: Inkling boy and girl (Splatoon 1 series), Kirby (Kirby series), and Ryu, Ness and Fami-ROB (Smash series) and several Animal Crossing ones.

 

Regarding Smash-compatiblity: If a character is in a game, it's Amiibo figure WILL work. Hell, the non-Isabelle figures unlocks their Spirits.

I've also seen Mario Party Peach and Yoshi (bought Peach), Smash Lucas and Falco (only one of him), and an Animal Crossing 3-pack which, yes, is $5.

 

RE: Ramhorn, I guess the one I got is the lighter variant? It's a more desaturated brown. ALSO, 5B's been getting in the larger-than-Legions-but-not-Deluxes Evergreen figures, Tiny Titans, the final wave (I think?) of TLK Legions (Hound & Dragonstorm) and even some not-Transformers-at-all robo-cars.

 

And in other 5B toy stuff just because why not, there's buttload of MLP movie stuff, $5 Star Wars Black Series 6" figures (grabbed 3PO, also got General Leia at Ross for $3 because Carrie Fisher in the height of her "f*** you" years hells to the YES I'm gonna buy that for $3), lots of those Lego boxes with color-based "build whatever" themes.

amiibo of player characters will give you some money, IIRC, and let you use them as programmable fighters, like in Sm4sh. Non-player characters (e.g., Celeste from AC) will unlock their Spirit, for the most part (I don't have too many of these, but the ones I had gave me some pretty good Spirits).

Crossroads Cary had at least three Ramhorns, I got mine and one for Trent so might still be one there. Beaver Creek in Apex was dry of Titan Masters. Those were the only two I was really able to get to.

Speaking of Trypticon

Gsf9ruS.jpg

I'm a little disappointed that a Prime Master can't plug into Tryp's noggin like this -- there's enough space between the guns for the legs but not the wider face. Would've been a fun toyetic way of storing a "power up" toy instead of just hiding it inside the Pretender armor.

The hips should lock in pretty solidly.  If the teal swing bars aren't lying flat, then push harder.  There's a release button behind his hip on each side that you need to press when going from his dino mode to his other forms.

If it's like mine, they don't flatten flush against the body in any mode.

Got pics of what you're talking about? I tried posting some for help a while back, but to no avail.

So, back around Black Friday, BBTS had a 53% off preorder for Titan class Trypticon and so I sprung for one at the time since I hadn't gotten one for myself. I shipped it back in December and it arrived around near the end of the month. Having finally had the time, I got around to opening up the delivery box and have taken a look at my new Trypticon's batch number. It's one I've never seen listed before. It's 82351.

 

I haven't opened the figure's box yet, but I was wondering if this batch number has come up before as to indicate whether mine is a good Trypticon with no problems with the hips, tail, or chest door, or if it's one of the faulty ones.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

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

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I got one just before Christmas, myself, and opened it only this past weekend. While it's possible that any damage has already been done, I was also wondering if there was some easy way to determine what batch this came out of.
