@  TM2-Megatron : (25 September 2017 - 01:35 AM)

Sad to say, I'll likely be picking up The Last Knight this week. If nothing else, it should look fantastic on 4K Blu-Ray, and my 4K OLED is still new enough I'm willing to watch things I hate if they look stunning

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 September 2017 - 01:34 AM)

Yeah, I picked it up last time when it got the 3-D conversion re-release treatment

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2017 - 12:57 AM)

To be honest I think I'd rather a copy of The Lion King over a copy of The Last Knight, and I already own a copy of the Lion King on bluray...

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 September 2017 - 12:36 AM)

I spent some time looking for a thread about The Lion King before I figured out the movie you actually meant

@  wonko the sane? : (24 September 2017 - 02:49 PM)

Arrrg! Just as I was about to make my first purchase from BBTS in years: their website up and dies on me.

Picked up Slugslinger. Awesome figure except for some unfortunate mold degradation. His fists are so loose and held just by friction. Hopefully they don't start falling out randomly.

@  Bass X0 : (20 September 2017 - 04:43 PM)

Sometime last week, I purchased Hasbro Windblade online then a day or two later, Takara Windblade was announced for only £4.99 more making me instantly regret buying Hasbro's Windblade. Guess I'll be giving Hasbro Windblade to my nephew for Christmas then.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 02:24 PM)

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 02:23 PM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:15 PM)

Hmm. How much is shipping from BBTS?

@  NightViper : (20 September 2017 - 02:09 PM)

Set of the four is still $22 at BBTS

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:00 PM)

Ramhorn is currently available from a third party seller via Amazon for $27.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 11:47 AM)

I guess he's gone now. Oh well.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I saw Ramhorn all over ebay for $16 a week ago or so.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 09:02 AM)

Just ordered Arcee.  I don't need her.  But she's pink.  And a robot.  A combination I love.

@  Darknova4life : (20 September 2017 - 08:57 AM)

@ Robowang, Where is TR Ramhorn available for $16?

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 07:31 AM)

Besides spotty, this is the first time I've consistently seen reships of older waves months after the next 2/3 waves show up.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 September 2017 - 07:29 AM)

No kidding spotty. Haven't seen of the recent waves, and I desperately want a seaspray for my brother.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 07:05 AM)

Distribution is so spotty these days that I've given in and just started ordering everything. I'm probably going to wind up with a $16 Ramhorn, too.

@  MidnightFox : (19 September 2017 - 08:51 PM)

So they've been out at regular retail hit and miss for awhile.

Gotta get my ZacWilliam on but i dont like this. I dont mind Archie being more adult but Archie being with a teacher, the whole thing centering on a murder mystery, and the kiss between betty and veronica just to join the squad...im not feeling this at all.

I wouldve preferred a more serious but still lighthearted take

Yeah, they were very firmly going for this Twin Peaks thing and if you don't dig that direction then this show is not for you. It's not Archie as a teen drama. It's not supposed to be Dawson's Creek or the OC or whatever. It's all murder and sex and personality disorders. I'm hoping they don't go down the Afterlife route with Cheryl and Jason but we'll see.

If I have seen them before, then I must not have known their names.

 

Though, I'd need to see more of the mayor and Betty's dad to see if I do recognize either of them.

The writer of Afterlife is the producer of this so... it could go the same way? He might introduce the lesbian part too.

Whatever happened to Afterlife anyway? It's been dead in the water for a while now?

Never saw twin peaks but if this is how it looks like, that's fine.

I'm pretty sure Mrs Lodge's original name was never Hermione, haha.

Btw, Wally's Shortpacked had a strip that explained Jughead's hat. The live action hat looks like the crown edges were sewed up.

Yeah, Aguirre-Sacasa running the show is why I'm worried it will be too Afterlifey. I'm not sure what happened to the book... I think there were delays and I'm not sure whether it's been officially cancelled. That would be weird as it seemed to be really popular. Aguirre-Sacasa may have become too busy once they made him Archie's EIC or whatever big promotion he got.

It appears that Hermione always has been Veronica's mum's name. I was surprised too.

I love this show, but I would as somebody who loves dramatic high-school nonsense and has no (serious) history with Archie comic books.

 

I want Veronica to be my favorite character, but I'm kind of annoyed by how she'll at a certain way and then be unable to describe her motivations (usually the show would subtly make reference to them, but this is not that sort of show, this is a show where everybody seems to be unable to stop talking their feelings).

 

Even though this show's premise is dark, I feel like there's an undercurrent of optimism? Archie himself seems to be keen on always trying to do the right thing and most of the characters aren't outright evil, they're just ridiculously troubled (ie CW characters).

I love how Hermoine presents herself and her motives to her daughter, because it genuinely cements how Veronica felt about the move to Riverdale, in addition to her own statements about wishing to change. Like; just how much she genuinely believes that the drop in status is karmic retribution for her family's actions, but then her mother starts to pull her back in with all her smooth talk.

 

It's not a blatant as Betty and her mother, but it's just as brilliant.

Caught up. I also thought Polly would be Betty or something, but she's real.

The Jughead move came out of nowhere for me. Has he even eaten any burgers here? Or met Ethel?

I actually like Valerie a lot with Archie. I think it was in the comics for a while? It won't last on the show but it's nice. I like the Josie dad drama too (what did he not like, really?)

Hey, no Cheryl. Nice.

I have a higher-than-average affection for Archie so I was interested. But it's the CW! The channel that made Dawson's Creek and Smallville! I don't care for those. But then my friends were all "So good!" and I'm like "Hmmm maybe" but then again my friends also like Lady Gaga for some reason. So anyway, I gave it a shot. And... it surpassed the hype, by a lot. I quickly binged on it and now I want more.

 

Cheryl is so over-the-top villainous, it almost is too much. But then her parents (and Alice Cooper too) turn the villainy up to 11 making the whole show have a "Scheming adults vs well-meaning kids" thing.

 

Jughead is a great take on the character. Aww yeah Bughead!

 

Kevin feels a bit like the audience surrogate at this point.

 

Archie's "music? sports?" plotline is so boring when there's murder mystery to solve. So when he's on screen I just focus on his powerful weight-lifting eyebrows.

 

The pussycats feel a bit shoehorned in for the sake of it, but it doesn't hurt anything and the music is gooooood. 

 

Reggie is fun but disappointingly sidelined for the time being.


Woooo!
