I use a modern BM Thrust every time I go into the bathroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 January 2020 - 12:24 PM)

If you're old enough to actually know what Geewun is AND hate it, we're LONG past the prom days and should probably just go hit the bar.

@  B-Fox : (29 January 2020 - 12:20 PM)

I HATE GEEWUN WILL YOU GO WITH ME TO PROM, CONTRARIAN-SENPAI!

@  Paladin : (29 January 2020 - 12:10 PM)

what, and actually acknowlege stuff created after 1987?

@  ThunderWear : (29 January 2020 - 12:01 PM)

Man, I just realized Siege was our best shot at Vehicon updates and it didn't happen. My kingdom for a modern BM Thrust.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 January 2020 - 08:11 AM)

Get some gloves and fish it out. Might still have it's wallet.

You should stop recognizing the bodies.

@  Cybersnark : (28 January 2020 - 11:19 PM)

Someone killed Pagliacci and dumped his body in the water.

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 January 2020 - 05:56 PM)

No, PlutoniumBoss. You ARE the bodies in the water.

Electrics are easier to use, quicker to clean, safer to operate. But there is no argument that a nice sharp blade does a better job.

@  Benbot : (28 January 2020 - 11:46 AM)

I've never shaved with anything other than an electric razor. I just don't want to put that much effort into it, but maybe I should start.

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 January 2020 - 05:38 PM)

I have dyspraxia so use a electric trimmer, it's never smooth. NEVER!

@  Benbot : (27 January 2020 - 12:52 PM)

don't you hate it when you shave but miss a whisker and it bugs you all day long and you try to yank it out but you can't because it's too short to get a hold of but your hand keeps finding it whenever you touch your face?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 January 2020 - 11:17 PM)

Twitter's revamp is so dumb. Nowadays, even when I am logged out of my account, right-clicking an image on Google Chrome won't let me access a URL to easily get the image's full size. That functionality was so useful!

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 January 2020 - 10:01 PM)

But when was the last time you saw a major retailer (since TRU) actually allot shelf space for a Transformers Titan? Or the Vintage Collection Poe X-Wing? There's clearly some sort of disparity between "girls" and "boys" toys that give companies justification to create $100+ items in the girls segment in FAR greater frequency than in boys.

@  fourteenwings : (25 January 2020 - 12:56 AM)

"how expensive they were" Tell that to L.O.L. O.M.G. and the $129 Amazing Surprise (I mean I guess when it comes to the toy aisle Power Rangers isn't a juggernaut like L.O.L.)

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:18 PM)

I think the big reason we didn't see the actual combining Zords at retail was because of how expensive they were. It would cost $100 to get enough of them to make a Megazord, $160+ if you want the Ultrazord. Or parents could just get the dang Ultrazord for $40 even if it didn't combine.

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

Because they are "kids toys" not "collector toys"

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 03:27 PM)

1) I don't have Target. 2) can't go into my walmart. I'm surprised Hasbro won't sell the toys on Pulse

@  Bass X0 : (24 January 2020 - 02:43 PM)

I dreamt my phone was ringing and woke up to answer it.

@  Sabrblade : (24 January 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The Lightning Collection figures, the smaller normal-sized Beast Morphers Ranger/enemy/Beast-Bot figures, the role-play morpher and weapon toys, and the simplistic non-combining megazord toys have all been very easy to find at various Targets and Walmarts. It's only been the actual combining Beast Morphers zord toys (which are bizarrely being sold individually this time) that have been hard to find in stores.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:49 PM)

Thought I do question Hasbro's almost reluctance to have the toys available anywhere.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 01:44 PM)

i've been trying to sell mine for weeks...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I hadn't opened mine yet, but from what I've seen, the general agreement is that the Beast Morpher zords are much better than Bandais.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I'm guessing if they're going to do anything on the level of Legacy Zords, it's being discussed behind NDAs at Toy Fair

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 January 2020 - 10:38 AM)

Lightning Collection is good, and they're taking their sweet time on making Zords that are better than Bandai's Zords.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 10:34 AM)

So, what's the general PR fandom consensus of the Hasbro run of PR so far? I pretty much stepped out of the community after I got the Bandai Legacy zords I wanted.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 08:46 AM)

that would require someone to BUY Hasbro PR toys...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 07:17 AM)

Well hopefully see some cool PR stuff. Wish BBTS sold Hasbro PR toys.

@  fourteenwings : (24 January 2020 - 07:01 AM)

February 22nd through 25th, I feel like it was earlier last year...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 06:32 AM)

When is NY TF?

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:43 PM)

I don't know about Hasbro's general policy but I know everybody was on lockdown for Frozen II, which included both LEGO and Hasbro. Plus, I'm guessing everybody is holding off PR for NY Toy Fair? Overall, it's best to remember that Toy Fairs are for buyers, not fans.

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:41 PM)

LEGO has been doing this for ages, including sending cease and desists when outlets get leaked images.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:42 PM)

And then they ended up selling off the brand, so I guess I wasn't the only one.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:41 PM)

Last time a toy brand I followed tightened down on toy fair and all the invited guests posted glowing reviews of what they saw, I ended up being disappointed as heck.

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:34 PM)

JediNews UK basically said they got a walkthrough of Lego's showcase...but were legally bound to NOT talk about anything, much less take pics.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:24 PM)

I wondered why I had seen basically nothing newsworthy from the event

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:14 PM)

Word is that Hasbro and Lego have their UK Toy Fair stuff on MAJOR lockdown. Full NDAs and everything.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 09:28 PM)

Seeing people say the $0.99 + $20 shipping item is cheaper than the $19.99 + free shipping item and getting tons of likes for it... I just don't know anymore.

@  Telly : (23 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

if you havent already, y'all check your walmarts clearance aisle. i found siege six shot for $5. course, it could just be my walmart, but never hurts to look

This was just recently posted by Mike Mignola:
 

Okay, here's some news--
There IS going to be another HELLBOY MOVIE.
It's going to be an R rated reboot directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game Of Thrones) and starring David Harbour (Stranger Things) as Hellboy.
More news to come soon--
 
definitely want to see how this develops...

No one asked for this reboot they asked for a Hellboy 3 with Perlmen (myself included)

While 1&2 were visually stunning, and some parts of the characters were extremely well done.   I found the shoe horned "romance" was quite odd (seeing all the media for Hellboy, places the Agents at best akin to Bond with a girl/guy of the adventure).  Abe's crush (in 2) was fine, the stuff with Liz felt like a bad fan fiction.

The cartoons they made, Blood and Iron, and Sword of Storms... were very much on point with the comics.  Also the character of Liz was WAY more appealing in the toons.

Hopefully they continue on that strain.   But really, I'd have preferred a Troll Hunter's-esque cartoon series in the veins of the above.  Add in Johann and Roger....   Personally I'd love to see a BPRD movie, focused on Abe's past and horrible fate.

I'm rather optimistic.

An R-rated Hellboy reboot holds zero appeal for me.

Perlman IS Hellboy. The late, great John Hurt IS Professor Broom. And we haven't got the delt Toro Hellboy 3!

Unless this R version is done with the same care as Logan, it could just end up as a blodfy, swear filled mess of tasteless humour because 'mature'.

I hope they take the right lessons from Deadpool and Logan, though i'm not inspired.

I wouldn't worry over much about it being akin to Deadpool.

Hellboy isn't a comedian.   While he's snarky (and can be amusing), as is Abe and Liz...   the Hellboy/BPRD series is not a humour filled one.  It's tragic and violent for all involved.  Extremely so.  One can only hope they chose the R-rating to do it justice.

This is one of those rare occasions I actually agree with 2017^

 

Del Toro made the two films for me and Perlman is Hellboy. With neither it's going to work it's butt off to convince me to see it.

Maybe, since it's R-rated, we'll get some full frontal nudity.

Just copy the Simpsons and have an extended nude skateboard sequence.

Yeah, I also agree with 2017 for once. I'd much rather have a third del Toro Hellboy. It just doesn't feel right without Ron as Hellboy.

4th? 5th'd? Whatever it is, Pearman makes Bellboy, and as I recall, actively wants to reprise the role. While Del Toro would be ideal, I think Neil could possibly do it justice. Dog Soldiers (his best film) and Doomsday both give me hope for this, but it will be a real hard sell without Pearlman.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

Perlman is the voice I hear when I read Hellboy comics. He is Hellboy! The new guy will only ever come across as knock-off not-Ron Perlman.

Sorry to be contrarian, but count me amongst those that never really got in sync with Del Toro's take on "Hellboy". Del Toro's technicolor imagination never fit with the horror/noir tone that the original Hellboy books tiptoed through. I really feel that "Hellboy" would be much better served with a sub-$100M budget and a studio like Blumhouse at the helm and hold high hopes for this reboot.


Yep.

I want to see Hellboy 3, not a reboot, if the reboot fails, there's always plan A, the sequel people have been waiting for and if that falls through, they might as well go and make a TV series based on the charater, comic book TV series can do well if done right.
