Figures that Walmart finally restocks Studio Voyagers...with Wave ONE

@  ThunderWear : (19 January 2020 - 09:27 AM)

I snagged Rainmakers for half off.  They make me want jolly ranchers.

I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:23 AM)

Well there is an overpriced limited edition, but I don't want to pay that much money for it.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:21 AM)

Well great. The one Usagi Yojimbo volume I don't have and it's out of stock.

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.

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)

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)

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)

@  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?

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)

@  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?

ResurrXion- return to the 90's era?

So Marvels been spilling the beans pretty early about their post X-men vs.Inhumans plan a bit. I'd say we are in for a revamp of the entire line since we now have quite a few titles titles. Some that are really calling back to the 90's era of the series.

 

X-men Blue

X-men Gold

Generation X (Jubilee confirmed!)

Cable

Weapon X

 

and a few new solo titles for some characters who have never really had a solo series before

 

Jean Grey

Iceman

 

Now how the older titles will become is up in the air yet. The Blue and Gold series are supposed to be returning to more of a Superheroic feel in a world that hates and fears them and less the end is nigh for Mutantkind like its been for a decade. Gen X is presumedly our new school title with Jubilee featuring somehow (teaching would be soooo weird). No word on how Cables going to be but Weapon X has been billed as to the hardcore, jive is going to fly title.

 

Jean and Iceman however are the titles catering to certain crowds. Jean will most likely become the strong female lead title and I'm absolutely cool with that. Jean has long been the uber powerful character in the x-men only to get fridged to take it back down a peg. Now hopefully this is still the young Jean in the modern era which I do enjoy having around but given the ResurrXion tag line, older Jean coming back from the white hot room seems possible.

 

Iceman however will probably be the comic catering to the LBGT community with his retconned new status as being gay. And otherwise I'm cool with the fact Bobby is getting a solo series. Jean and Him were the only 2 of the original team never to get any solo focus I believe. I'm still not cool with the retcon though. If it was just the younger Bobby discovering something in the new current era I'd be more apt to go with it, but to force it onto the original Bobby who's been through relationship after relationship and had issues with Northstar being around, it's just not sitting well with me. Still it's also not determined whether the title is focused on the older or younger Bobby, for all we know currently it's going to be both which would be a weirdly interesting dynamic. I'm beginning to think the original 5 that Older Beast ripped from their past has set a different timeline in motion from the 616 and thus the reason they can't go back is that the 616 timeline is somehow already set somehow and that their time has divergerged onto it's own path and somehow the time travel conventions they have normally used isn't working. Plus there is the Secret Wars and the multiversal splintering and reconverging... anyways gone off on a tangent..

 

So what do you guys think of the ResurrXion news?

Man, Marvel sure is doing a poor job of killing the X-Men forever and replacing them. People keep saying that's what they're doing and yet they keep walking it back like this.

I am utterly disinterested in Resurroion until they announce solo teams.
Also I'm skeptical that Jean and Iceman can hold their own series, and after how badly Bendis Bendised up the "coming out" of Iceman, I'm incredibly unenthusiastic about the prospect of more gay Iceman stories.

Man, Marvel sure is doing a poor job of killing the X-Men forever and replacing them. People keep saying that's what they're doing and yet they keep walking it back like this.

Yeah, now the X-Men don't have to worry about being killed off, just about being badly written like 70% of other Marvel titles.
(seriously though I think it's pretty unambiguous that Marvel has been trying to deemphasise the X-Men out of spite, especially since the ban on artists drawing them at cons)

Well, this sounds pretty great to me. I agree that solo books are unlikely to last long in most cases (but what books do?).

But ultimately... Gen X? Jubilee? Yes please. None of the rest really matters.

I really hope Bishop ends up on one of the teams, preferably Gold. Problem is that I just don't know how to any X-Men rosters manageable with just 2 teams. Even back in the old days there were only 13 or 14 characters max, and people complained it was too many. I have more favourites than that, damnit! I'm also including dead characters in my wishlist, because why not.

 

Gold: Storm

Wolverine

Colossus

Jean Grey

Archangel

Bishop

Domino

Gambit

Cable

 

 

Blue:
Cyclops

Psylocke

Beast

Rogue

Magik

Marrow

Iceman

Surge

 

Maintenance Staff: Forge and Cecilia Reyes (Cecilia would essentially be a full-time, albeit reluctant, Blue Team member)

THANK GOD. That was the biggest, most glaring change to me when Claremont originally left. Seriously.


Question: 

 

Is original Wolverine still dead/encased in Adamantium/suffering from the lamest death issue ever?

Original Wolverine is still dead.

But ANAD Wolverine has been a really good book so, fair trade.


-ZacWilliam, vanilla Logan is still pretty played out. I think he needs to rest until he feels interesting again...

I am kinda amazed they haven't brought him back yet beyond extra-dimmensional counterparts.

 

Course, it's been.....12 years since Jean Grey died. And also Marvel hated mutants until now, apparently.

Hmm, in the few places I've seen him I'd say the post-Morrison guest appearances were passable but kinda uninspired. He was "Morrison-Noh Varr light." The Bendis Avengers appearances were pretty awful and pointless, bland and personality-less (like Bendis Avengers in general really). Young Avengers NV was a fine character on the other hand, used and developed passably, he just didn't seem connected at all to any previous versions in personality or expression.

I guess I'd say he's been very inconsistent. At this point Ewing could really do anything with him and not be way afield because there's kinda been no consistant field to aim for.


-ZacWilliam, though in the interview Ewing says he's gonna try to bridge the versions some so if he can pull that off it can only help NV

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s announcement of a new ongoing series starring the Inhuman Royal Family, Marvel has announced that the Inhuman king Black Bolt will soon get his very first ongoing series. The new “Black Bolt” ongoing, which was announced via io9, will be written by novelist Saladin Ahmed (“The Crescent Moon Kingdoms”) and featuring art by Christian Ward (“The Ultimates”).

http://www.cbr.com/m...-inhumans-line/

Yeah, could be cool. Author's apparently a popular sci-fi novelist, so.

I'm honestly already more excited by the Inhuman lineup than by the X-Men.
