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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 January 2020 - 04:50 AM)

News today is all 'there's a CHANCE it would snow in July' and 'dogs COULD bite back'.

@  Benbot : (12 January 2020 - 10:05 PM)

Holy crap, do many people get hurt by them?

@  wonko the sane? : (12 January 2020 - 02:11 PM)

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)

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 04:02 PM)

I've been watching South Park, Family Guy and The Simpsons with a straight face for a decade now.

If I go crazy, will you still call me Superman?

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)

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.

Wish they had adjusted her skin tone a bit, but everything else is there, so it's all good.  :)


Having a pink woman run around might lose a bit of believability in this too.

well this is possibly the same character from dofp ... so 

 

*wiggly hand motion*  ~

 

all we can hope for is the pink is a 'secondary mutation'  lol ... personally, I'm more interested in somebody just handing her a big gold arm guard and some belts.

 

blink-bigcostume5.jpg

 

a quiver full of spikes would be nice too but I think the belts might be pushing it already lol

 

<_<

>_> and maybe the Tallus could just get a passing joke line like.

 

Blink opens her nightstand and sees it phase into existence - only for her to shut the drawer and say something like "oh not that again." 

 

:rolleyes 

 

XD maybe she'll be the breakout character on the series and get a spin off where Fox uses her to fix the X-timeline

Uses the actresses actual skin does save on makeup (expense & time) and adds to the variety of ethnicities represented by making her remain Korean.  So it's all good.

 

I do wonder though if she'll learn to use her power better via the crystals, or if that'll be something they don't both with due to possible budgetary reasons (or having to explain where they even come from)?

The first episode wasn't bad, but I felt my attention drifting a few times. The plot felt... I dunno. It didn't feel "new". New mutants discovering their powers, getting hunted, finding a sanctuary of sorts... It's basically the same plot we've seen time and again.

Especially when we have the main male child character tearing things apart with his mind when he loses control. That scene felt a little too much Legion for me. In fact... the plot was very Legion, but without the insanity hook that made Legion so compelling. 

 

Like I said, it wasn't bad. I'm not really criticizing it all that much here. I just hope that with all our characters introduced now we can tackle some more interesting plot strings.

I found the other cast to be more interesting than the kids and their parents. Helps that three of the four are existing likeable characters.

Glad to hear that it's getting good reviews, too.  I'd hate to see it get canned before it really gets going.

This was something I was unaware of also happened in the comics.  Just it was brown instead of black.

I gotta say, not being familiar with any of the characters in that last scene with the researchers, I was entirely lost. I had no idea what any of it meant and it failed to be any kind of stinger just a "wtf did I just watch" scene since no one was actually introduced and nothing was said about what they were doing.

 

Other than that scene though, it was a much better episode than the first one. They actually feel like real characters now rather than "Hey. Remember this person from the comic book? If you don't... I guess this doesn't mean anything to you."

I just realised that "John" is Thunderbird.  I wonder if they'll kill him off just like his comic counterpart.

Then do we get Warpath or does that have to wait for Deadpool 3 or the inevitable Cable solo-movie?

They probably used Thunderbird because they used Warpath in the films.

Unless this leads up to that movie at some point. Since Blink is there.

I love continuity shenanigans in a universe where time travel and alternate realities are a given established thing that happens XD

See, I saw the dye coming out and thought, "oh damn, when's the last time Polaris washed her hair?!?"

 

Also, I feel better if I keep Legion and Gifted continuities the hell away from X-Film continuities.

Logan was great as a one-off, and I enjoyed the hell out of Deadpool, but the rest... well, I'd like to pretend that they don't even exist.

There's ways to keep dye in when washing, but it requires stuff that they wouldn't have let her have in prison.

I don't really spend a lot of time thinking about fictional character's personal hygiene regiments lol. however, considering she's basically a fugitive on the run and has been locked up for most of the series' runtime so far I'm thinking at best this was her first shower in a couple days, assuming they didn't let her have one at vampire dad's work.

Umm, most dye does not wash out without the use of "stuff" in the shower to keep it in.

She must be using the cheap, spray-in stuff or something.
