Toy Galaxy is my favorite overall toy-related channel on YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (26 February 2020 - 11:29 PM)

Last year's coverage via Toy YouTubers was brilliant. However, since YouTube's new (unfortunately necessary) guidelines the companies barely invited any of them back, so all we get is super-popular collector's info.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 February 2020 - 09:19 PM)

If it weren't for Toy Galaxy's coverage video, I would not have known about the Defenders of the Earth figures. New toys of Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician? In 2020? I would have said you were smoking something strong.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:32 PM)

So the question is... has Madagascar closed down all its ports yet?

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:31 PM)

A couple that got infected attended a Carnival event with over 300 people in attendance.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

So the Corona virus keeps getting closer to where I live. Several confirmed cases in my federal state already.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 February 2020 - 02:20 PM)

Man, only having collector sites to get Toy Fair news from sucks. Did you know there is a 4" line of kids figures for the new Avengers game coming?

@  Dekafox : (26 February 2020 - 11:54 AM)

Since Omega already exists they could name it Auntie

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:07 AM)

Oh, and one last Titan,provided we can fudge things a bit to include a character from Transformers: Animated; how about something at least resembling TF:A Omega Supreme?

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:05 AM)

How about they find a way to make a mold they can use for both Broadside and Tidal Wave?

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 February 2020 - 02:13 AM)

Optimus Maximus, the mysterious titan of the Arisen, also Iaconus from Cyberverse.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Can we all just appreciate how fantastic it is that the most powerful hero in the MCU is going to be a woman? It's honestly one of the best choices Marvel's made, and they've made a hell of a lot of good choices with the MCU.

 

Well, I'm assuming Vision should be pretty competitive, power level-wise.  Although we all know he's going to get jobbed once Thanos shows up.

 

Wanda's no slouch on the power level department either.  I don't feel the MCU is particularly lacking in strong female characters at any rate.  Although I do kinda wish Gamora was given more to work with in Guardians.  Didn't really do much to exemplify her top-assassin status.  Hopefully Vol. 2 gives her more to do.  Also how Nebula and Mantis factor in to the heirarchy.

Ehhn. I was hoping they'd draw on some of the older issues, or maybe the current run; to me, Carol's "defining trait" is her anger issues and violent tendencies. That was there in the KSD run, but not as much as I would've liked.

Still, I prrrrobably shouldn't be surprised. And at least she's got something relevant to her role - apparently Evangeline Lily was given The Irredeemable Ant-Man to read.

That's the biggest problem that I have with creating a "Captain Marvel" film starring Carol Danvers is that Carol - this Captain Marvel - is the sum of years of stories, many of which defining what she has finally become today. I don't know how you can specifically create a story that includes her history without it being the same convoluted mess that her history. That is, without it having the same basic plot as the Green Lantern film.

 

Edit: oops, Danvers not Ferris.

I'd be okay with short hair. It's professional, within regs for an Air Force officer, and long hair would be a liability in a close-quarters fight.

So apparently the screenwriter is concerned about some elements of the characters history... because "her origin story is similar to Green Lantern."

Alien comes to Earth, transfers power to a human, dies.*

Which is the only way you can really do Carol's classic origin unless you want to have Mar-Vell operating as Captain Marvel before Carol.

*I mean, TECHNICALLY Mar-Vell's powers weren't transferred to Carol, it was unrelated Kree DNA, but...

Its too bad there's not a concept of Kree DNA being in humans around the world introduced already that only takes the exposure to some sort of, I don't know, alien crystal to awaken said powers and could be used to introduce Carol here.  I mean that would take some sort of TV show about Agents of some sort of Shield on, I don't know, ABC or something.  It's too bad nothing like that exists in the MCU.

 

Ironbite-it's a pickle isn't it?

She's an air force pilot who gets her powers from an alien hero who later dies, leaving her to take up his name.

 

I mean, technically Mar-Vell didn't die until decades later, but you'd probably compress that for a movie.

I don't know...

Alien Policeman crashes on Earth. Chooses a test pilot to take over his job and special weapon. Test pilot goes into space and becomes space policeman/hero.

Vs

Alien invaders attack Earth. Air Force pilot trying to stop them gets caught in one of their machines exploding and comes out of it with genetically enhanced superpowers and kicks their butts.

I think it's pretty safely different.


-ZacWilliam, obviously you super downplay or leave out Mar-Vell all together as he's not pre-established in the MCU, but I don't see much similarity there.

You're looking for the differences, not the similarities, which I outlined.

 

It's enough that I imagine Marvel wants to make it more unique.  More specifically I think they want to avoid going through the beats of the Green Lantern movie from 2011.

The differences are her entire origin story, powers, and nature as a character.

The similarities are a few very tiny and easily left out superficial bits.

-ZacWilliam, you still have her entire original origin story if you leave every one of those "similarities" out

it's likely the simple justification for whatever changes they want to make.

 

Not that it's necessarily a good or a bad thing either way.

 

Marvel is making a movie called Captain Marvel  I can understand them wanting this to be something special.

Well, the writer of said movie disagrees with you apparently.

 

So do I, but my opinion matters less than the person actually scripting the movie.

You could pretty much exactly do the current version of her comic uniform and it wouldn't look out of place in MCU:

3047641-inline-s-3-first-look-at-the-new

 

The biggest question for me is going to be: "Where does the suit come from?" Is it something that she fashions, or is it somehow imbued upon her? If it's the latter, then it needs to look more alien, closer to something we'd see in Guardians than Avengers. Then again, a lot of Gunn's Gardians designs - specifically thinking of the Nova Corps - don't look very alien, so I don't know how you can show that.

 

 

Honestly? I'd be fine with her having been kidnapped by the ravagers ala Quill and given the powers before the movie started. We always have a precedent for alien abduction, might as well use it to save time.

 

It either that or *gasp* an agents of shield link where they find her in a Kree science lab.


It's a Newcomic (apparently)
