just be happy your walmart even stocks voyagers. mine doesnt

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 January 2020 - 08:53 PM)

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.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 04:21 PM)

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

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

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.

@  Rycochet : (17 January 2020 - 06:15 PM)

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?

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.

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)

i still don't own a Blu-Ray player.

@  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)

@  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?

3? We're getting 5. It's obvious that this is a week-long series of reveals. okay maybe not

 

I loved Rosenberg's Kingpin, but this isn't doing much for me, mostly because of the complete tonal disconnect between Kamala/Luna and the others. I'll be interested if he can pull it off, but for god's sake, they're a teenager and a 10-year-old, respectively. What are they doing on a clandestine spy team?

Quelle surprise: X-Men Blue and X-Men Gold are basically just a rebranded All-New X-Men and Extraordinary X-Men with different creative teams, which means we're stuck with the painfully tiresome Kirby & Lee X-Kids on Blue, and an uninspiring lineup and mediocre author (who's also reportedly the man responsible for Arrow going to shit) on Gold.
I like a lot of Bunn's work - particularly his Magneto - but he does tend to be either very good or incredibly bad, and I don't have faith that he'll be the former with the O5 involved.
 
What with Ewing and Rosenberg on the Inhumans and an X-Men line that's increasingly looking like ANAD X-Men with a new coat of paint, I suspect I'm not the only one who's going to be far more interested in the former.
 
(But there's Kitty and Rachel on the same team, so who knows; we might finally get the Promised Lesbians.)

Oh, and... I'll give you ten quid that Hopeless will be the author on Generation X.

I win either way; either I'm £10 richer or Hopeless isn't writing Generation X.

I'm optimistic about Blue and Gold. Despite the annoying Iceman retcon I've enjoyed having the Teen Original Five around but under the tutelage of Magneto is going to be interesting. Mags hasn't been near the main teams since their short jump to Older Scotts Weapon X school so it should be interesting how they react to someone they had previously had only fought against. I'll stay on board as long as Bachelo is nowhere near the artwork.

And Gold looks like a classic mix of near Excalibur and the most current of the more popular classic characters. My only problem is where are some of the newer characters? Will all the new characters get shoved to Gen X or Xforce?

Not sure about Rachel's new codename -- "Prestige" makes me think she has heavy paper stock or something. But teaming the O5 with Magneto strikes me as a pretty viable way of keeping them interesting.

My first thought was doing 1 book of the original team and 1 book of the famous Claremont team makes a lot of logical sense. But then I heard the complaints about how rediculously non diverse/non representative these teams are with only one PoC between both teams and yeah I have to say that's not really cool for a line that is meant to be a metaphor for persecution and prejudice.


-ZacWilliam, so we'll see, I guess. But yeah once that is brought to mind it's a pretty offputting flaw...

Okay, so, each of the books so far has something hamstringing them.
Iceman is focused entirely on his sole personality trait, his gayness. (Which isn't a surprise, because it overwrote his previous sole personality trait of being a ladies' man.)
Generation X is using such beloved characters as Quentin Quire and Eyeboy. (I'd still be interested, but hug, Quire is so intolerable.)
Jean Grey is being written by Dennis Hopeless, AND it's about Teen Jean.
Weapon X has art by Greg Land.
 
If Cable has a decent team on it, I'll settle for that, Weapon X and X-Men Blue, but I'm not thrilled about this line.

Eye boy isn't bad at all. "Spider-man and the X-men" was easily the best Xbook of the last decade IMO and he was one of the class in that.

While I haven't read him myself X-men: Year One by Hopless folcused on young Jean and is a huge favorite of all the biggest Xfans I know.


-ZacWilliam, Iceman also has always been a joker and goofy "younger brother" so he has had as much personality as the rest of the original 5.

I mean, I can get behind Eyeboy on the basis of this being a bunch of weirdos and outsiders with little-to-no practical application for their powers, but I never want to read a comic with Kid Omega in it ever again.

And personally, I just can't bring myself to read Hopeless's work. Avengers Arena/Undercover was just awful, ANXM is bad, and Spider-Woman is completely uninteresting. I just think he's one of the worst writers at Marvel currently.

(I was kind of exaggerating about Iceman, but he's hardly ever been a big player, and I'm still irritated about how horribly that retcon was handled.)

Ya not thrilled about the Gen X cast. Jubes is about the only one I won't mind seeing back other than a tad bit of Quire... I at least liked when him and Wolverine went space gambling to fund the school.

 

Jean's title I'm actually interested in as I've not read much of Hopeless's work to be biased against him and I actually find young Jean the most interesting of the young O5 X-men. She's the only one who never got to meet her future self but sees all she did for everyone and this weird extended family she's suddenly inherited with Rachel, Nathan, and Nate (is X-man still running around?) while also knowing her own family have been wiped out by an alien race just for being in her same gene pool.

 

Weapon X is just Uncanny X-force 3.0 or 4.0 by now. I can't remember. I'm curious to see the dynamic between Old Man Logan and Nice Sabretooth.

 

But I'm still not happy at all about the Iceman retcon. no plans to touch that book anytime soon.

The man made Magneto talk about how normal humans "don't really feel pain" and fed them into crematoriums.

People not getting HIS characters is poetic justice.

"Disabled people don’t have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isn’t a “special need”. It’s a basic human right. It’s a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Yeah, there's a lot of Morrison's stuff that kkkkkinda sucks. (See: everything about his treatment of gender in... er, everything, but particularly The Invisibles.)

Also, he deliberately wrote a bad comic as the "draw" of Multiversity, which nerds love to gush over because it's, like, meta, bro!*

The main thing about Morrison's work that I'm glad for is that his Doom Patrol run led into a trans woman writing it and introducing an actual transgender hero, even if both Coagula and the run as a whole were promptly ignored by DC.

 

*Goddamn, now I'm wondering if my inability to be wowed by Weird Meta Comics was a result of reading Homestuck at such a tender age.
