When that happens in Cocoa Beach there's always someone getting out their surfboard.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand brick and mortar.

@  siccoyote : (18 January 2018 - 04:31 AM)

Who sings the first part of the GIJoe The Movie theme song? (Cobra) Sounds so familiar.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 04:54 PM)

What ya getting?

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Yay! My package from BBTS is in canada! I might even get it this week!

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 02:04 PM)

I need a laptop more than a new desktop

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 01:18 PM)

Buying a pre-built computer you should be okay.. It's just the individual parts that jumped huge in price.

@  Paladin : (17 January 2018 - 01:14 PM)

well all the idiots who invested in "bitcoin" will be selling theirs en masse to make ends meet so you might be able to find something cheap if you watch auctions.

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 12:59 PM)

Is now a good time to buy a computer? Or should I wait?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 12:01 PM)

I pointed out that I'm on disabilty.. I don't have to pretend to be an adult anymore. ;D

@  MEDdMI : (17 January 2018 - 11:25 AM)

Also Bayonetta 3.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 January 2018 - 10:55 AM)

Nintendo also announced Dark Souls for the Switch, so those people should shut up.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:51 AM)

Apparently people are freaking out that Nintendo announced something for kids and kids at heart. And people are absolutely freaking out about it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 January 2018 - 10:23 AM)

...what?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:16 AM)

Why is something for kids and "kids at heart" so bad? :(

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 January 2018 - 09:05 PM)

I vote kidnap Reggie.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 January 2018 - 07:20 PM)

Just post it on the net.. Or maybe kidnapp Reggie and make them do a Nintendo Direct about it. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2018 - 06:50 PM)

Rent a space and do a webcast?

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 January 2018 - 06:22 PM)

They could just do a panel at RI ComicCon or something.

@  abates : (16 January 2018 - 05:51 PM)

I love RotF Mixmaster, if that means anything.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 January 2018 - 12:42 PM)

Ehh.. when they get to complicated.. it gets annoying. PotP Optimus is decent. Rodimus pushes it just a little.

@  Locoman : (16 January 2018 - 12:32 PM)

Part of the appeal of Transformers for me has always been the mechanical puzzle angle, so I really enjoyed the ROTF/TF2010 line when that angle hit its zenith.

@  Locoman : (16 January 2018 - 12:31 PM)

I'm probably one of the few people who really enjoys complicated, fiddly transformations.

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2018 - 12:14 PM)

Some were decent, but many suffered from that "collector mentality" where it just LOOKED good in both modes...but the engineering was complex merely for the sake of it.

@  Shrug : (16 January 2018 - 10:30 AM)

Huh. That's dissapointing. I had completely missed the Alternators and had just always assumed they were good based on how they looked in photos.

@  Pennpenn : (16 January 2018 - 03:34 AM)

I liked the Alternator Tracks mold. I think everyone agrees the Grimjack mold was just kinda shit even if you didn't care about it being Grimlock as a car.

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 January 2018 - 09:16 PM)

My local dept. store Shopko always seemed to get a few late run gems, like Blast Attack Optimus Primal and hard to find collection 2 Revenge of the Sith toys.

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 January 2018 - 09:15 PM)

Still wish I had snagged that extra Swerve I saw on clearance at Shopko, though

@  RichardT1977 : (15 January 2018 - 08:50 PM)

Smokescreen was the only Alternator I ever got.

@  Telly : (15 January 2018 - 07:24 PM)

i sold all my alternators last year

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 January 2018 - 05:27 PM)

Hound isn't bad, and, uh........

@  Paladin : (15 January 2018 - 05:23 PM)

there's only like 3 Alternator molds at most that still hold up...

I'd say the more important question is how X and Magneto fail to age at all over the twenty-year span of the "second trilogy".

 

Patrick Stewart hasn't aged in twenty years, so that one's pretty easy.

 

 

Seriously.

 

They had to put old age makeup on a Seventy Six Year Old just to sell the idea that Xavier is older in Logan.

Fox has so effectively butchered the X-Men continuity that I have no idea what the hell they are doing anymore.

 

The cinematic X-verse is very true to the overall comic continuity in that respect.

Dunno why everyone's so confused, there are only two timelines:

Timeline A
First Class-->Origins: Wolverine-->-->-->X-Men-->X2-->X3-->The Wolverine-->-->DoFP(bad future)

Timeline B (created by Wolverine altering history)
First Class-->DoFP-->Apocalypse-->(untitled future X-film)-->Deadpool-->DoFP(good future)-->-->-->Logan

DoFP erased Origins: Wolverine, since Logan didn't go to Vietnam with Creed (where they would eventually come to Stryker's attention), but instead made a beeline for Xavier's mansion.

The only really confusing parts are peoples' ages/actors, and I'm willing to write those off as artistic license and butterfly effects.

How is the teaser we saw in Logan a "good future"? Especially with it set a year after DoFP? Replace one catastrophe with another - the only difference is it seems Humanity isn't collateral damage like they were in the Sentinel Future.

 

Also, Deadpool's in an isolated continuity bubble, since he's aware of both McAvoy and Stewart.

Yeah, the confusion is solely over the fact that DOFP had everyone having a whale of a time at the X-Mansion in 2023, and then Logan apparently has mutants as a dying breed in 2024, which makes zero sense if it's in the same new timeline.

(Also, I don't think Deadpool's fourth-wall-breaking gags are really something one should use to try and determine continuity...)

What if Apocalypse showing up has set in motion cable traveling back and the universe on track for some AOE bad future.

Alternate theory: What if we aren't seeing old man Logan adapted, but the events leading to it. The "Bad guys" he kills throughout the movie are actually xmen trying to rescue the prof and x21 from a mind controlled wolverine. The end has a he audience all for wolverine going berserk on the baddies until it shamalan twists to him surround by the blood soaked body's of the xmen.

Considering this is reportedly Jackman's last appearance as Wolverine, I doubt that.

Yeah, I doubt they'll make Jackman's last outing so dang depressing.

 

As for Deadpool and McAvoy and Stewart in the same film - the thing there was it was Colossus taking him back to the mansion. The fact Wade asks the question (Beyond being a great gag), means there's a chance the Professor is McAvoy...who hasn't met Colossus yet.

 

Dang nabbit FOX. I am not supposed to think this hard about movie timelines.

for the first time, I am genuinely excited for an X Men movie.  That looks incredibly good.  As a hero movie, as a dramatic movie.  It looks good.
