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?

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 January 2020 - 02:36 PM)

'Boaty McBoatface' was a actual thing?! Wow.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (14 January 2020 - 02:00 PM)

Might be worth bringing back this thread.

@  ThunderWear : (14 January 2020 - 01:53 PM)

Of course I had the idea to download all the pdfs like a week too late. Anyone got an archive?

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 January 2020 - 12:48 PM)

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.

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?

@  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.

@  Ashley : (07 January 2020 - 11:50 PM)

the comic theme is amazing

@  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?

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:12 AM)

Others insist on "Michael Yackson".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:01 AM)

Because the very combination of those sounds is unknown to them, and thus they avoid it as if it were contagious.

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:00 AM)

For example, the English "J" sound consists of sounds that exist in German: Basically, it's just a "d" sound followed by a very soft "sh". Yet there are many Germans who insist on calling the late King of Pop "Michael Checkson".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 05:58 AM)

I'm talking about names that should pe easily pronouncable if you just bothered to pay attention to how it's done correctly instead of insisting on "I speak X language and this is how I prounounce it!"

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 05:57 AM)

I'm not even talking about foreign names that have sounds that don't exist in the speaker's language.

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 05:56 AM)

Something that really irks me is when people are persistently ignorant about the correct pronunciation of foreign names, especially when it's people they either admire or frequently interact with on a daily basis.

I'd be interested where the rights to Marvel Boy/Justice fall. His character origin is tied most strongly to the Guardians of the Galaxy, as his first version was Vance Astro, but his becoming Marvel Boy involved the Fantastic Four somewhat iirc, and he is a Mutant, but one not ever involved in Mutant books/stories.

I would guess he'd be useable if you just never say "Mutant."


-ZacWilliam, I'd at least like to see him, Nightthrasher and Speedball but honestly I'm open to anything fun from Sleepwalker to Reptil.

does adding Squirrel Girl to a New Warriors show mean there will be horrible tiny rambling subtitles in every episode?

 

Otherwise, i know we wint get Nova, or Rage...but Speedball and Nightthrasher are musts. i cant seperate them from the idea of new warriors.

Speedball is an absolute must, but Night Thrasher, the leader of team, is not?


That is correct.

So, are you prejudiced against...a helmeted Nightwing on a skateboard?


No, I would very much prefer that he was present. But he's no Speedball. Or Justice, or Firestar, etc.
He seems like a hard sell without significant reinvention. I fear if they did use him, it would be as a target of mockery.

Your penance for such casual disregard for Night Thrasher is the casting of...Penance.

Muahahahahahah!

I'd rather have Penance than no Speedball at all!

In fact I'd prefer the real Penance, cancel this NW show and give us some decent GenX.

Characters revealed:

http://www.cbr.com/s...BR-TW&view=list

Squirrel Girl - Obviously, as she's the one the Network wanted a show about before Marvel sold them on including the NW

Mister Immortal - Makes sense as a member of Squirrel Girl's old GLA team and a quirky guy with an interesting but easy to do on a TV budget power. The only weird bit is he's the only traditionally non-teen guy here.

Night Thrasher and Speedball - sounds like Robbie's powers will be toned down a bit at least to start but these are the two the show needed most to feel like New Warriors to me so cool.

Debrii and Microbe - Huh, I did not expect this book to draw so heavily from that NW series. But I'm cool with it. I quite enjoyed that book/team before Marvel murdered it to make Civil War.

Not the cast I would have guessed. But I think I like it. I've always honestly wanted them to bring Microbe back in the comics anyway.


-ZacWilliam, if they pull off the tone of SG right I think the rest will probably fall into place decently. I would be really interested to see if we get a comic with something like this line up. I think we would if Marvel was smart. But then they've not done anything with the Big Hero 6 so they're kinda not..:

Holy cow, Microbe! That's nice. I hope they treat him well. Debris, well, they needed a sassy girl, though Namorita could have done that too.

I rather liked that reality TV NW mini for it's cartoons art and done in one issues. What if they put Purple Man's sweat in there? Haha

I was a little annoyed for a minute that the lineup wasn't more classic, but then I realized they're using everyone who isn't potentially caught up in a rights issue (Firestar, Namorita) or tangentially related to a more successful property (Nova, Marvel Boy).

 

Still, I'd trade both Microbe and Debrii for Rage. (I'm sure Darkhawk is too out there, budget-wise)

I'm pretty curious what they will do for villains. The Classic New Warriors aren't exactly sporting a major Rogue's Gallery.

-ZacWilliam, and I say that as someone who loves the original run. Neither Squirrel Girl nor the GLA sport much in the way of baddies either...

Maybe it could be like the Justice Friends, where their greatest challenge is learning to get along with each other, but filmed in the style of reality shows like "The Real World."

I know that's not it at all, but a live-action superhero show in that style could be rather entertaining.
