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?

@  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.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 January 2020 - 10:35 PM)

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".

I've got the Marvel Legends Darkhawk figure displayed prominently on my desk. Love that guy, and would love to see him turn up in the MCU or even the Netflix side stories. Pretty relevant early history with the police brutality angle of Savage Steel. Also Tony Stark connection since that armor was based on his own designs.

I didn't know that existed. Looks like I need to pick something up soon.

It's a secret to everybody

Not a huge fan of the split wing design on the figure, but I fully acknowledge there's really no way to do wings justice in non-statue form.

Most of my desires are just shifing all the X-men/FF rights away from Fox. While Logan and Deadpool proves they can do some things right Most of the X-men Movies have been subpar to the MCU. While it would be odd to shoehorn in mutants now post Inhumans, I'd still like to see it done. And the FF. I feel Reed would be easy to pull in as a contemporary to Stark or Bruce similar to their "Heroes Reborn" backstory With Pym, Tony, Doom, Banner all being college friends and peers. Now obviously Pyms a bit too old for that backstory but I could still see Tony actually funding Reeds research and helping catapult them towards the FF's origin.


Of course that's all out of the question for now so......How about a Widow/Hawkeye movie? I think it'd be cool to see a spy thriller with the two of them.


Or go the course of what the end of Civil War could of set up and start the Thunderbolts. I don't care if they go completely classic or try something more contemporary. Have Gen Ross (or Secretary now) use the Raft as his staging ground to start his own team using his inmates. May be a bit too close to Suicide Squad that way. Or maybe post revival Bucky reluctantly leads the group. Or heck merge both my ideas and bring in Hawkeye, Widow, Winter Soldier and then lead the T-bolts. Just as long as Songbird is involved I'll at least be happy.

Is it wrong if the FF ever do make it to the MCU, I hope they take Reed down his Ultimate Universe path? Reed "The Maker" is so much more interesting.

i think im the only one that DOESNT want the ff or xmen in the mcu. i would like to see dr doom in the mcu though. and wolverine but only if jackmans playing him. other than that, i think theyve got more than enough characters that theyd just make the place way too crowded if they came back

When I die I will surely go to Heaven for i spent my life in Hell

No just no. Reed should be Reed and the crazy science can stick with Doom. While I don't mind Maker as an alternate take on the character it should never be the main version of him.


I just want the family team dynamic the FF has always tried to achieve. Heck I don't care if we even fast forward a bit and Reed and Sue are already married before they get their powers. Really I think the first two Fox films did this well already but not good enough. We just need science minded Reed with a Sue that keeps him grounded, an annoying Johnny that can get on peoples nerves but has the heart that counts and a strong yet somewhat brooding Ben that's the muscle and glue that holds them together. Don't need the will they/won't they of the first two Fox films Reed and Sue and get a decent replacement for Chris Evans. Heck I'd welcome back Chilkis as Ben. I thought he was perfect for the role. The costume wasn't the best but I liked his take on Thing.


But here's the sticky part of the thing in my mind. Use someone other than Doom in the first attempt. I don't mind if he's in the background like Thanos has been but Doom is worth the wait if they could get him right. Heck I'd almost reattempt the same origin story of the Trank film as they get their powers by opening a portal to the Negative Zone instead. Then have to fight off Blastaar or Annihilus.

If the Fantastic Four do get MCU integration, honestly the first movie ought to have them deal with Skrulls. Ties in with the cosmic aspect, introduces a classic Marvel baddie, and can have some fun plays on Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Then have the macguffin to identify Skrulls not come from Reed himself, but through "advanced identification software from the 'North Korea of Europe' - Latvaria."


Because if we're going to get Doom in the MCU, then I want to see Doom done right, and that means Doom can't be a malevolent antagonist.

I would of said Skrulls myself if they weren't already slated to be used in Captain Marvel I believe. Though I agree on your use of Doom.

I want a She-Hulk netflix series.  I want it to be a legal drama.  She's a DA and the only one whose willing to prosecute super criminals who threaten all who try and enforce the law against them.  By day she puts them away, by night she kicks ass when their people try to exact revenge.

Honestly, introduce her in Daredevil like Punisher, cuase really, Might as well  get both your lawyer characters in one show on case toeather or somehow against each other (you know typical Hero vs Hero 1st meetign drama, but in a courtroom) and out of the way before moving on to a full series.

Just tossing this one out. 


If you could have any character or team get a one-off theatrical, who would it be? 


Sentry, around phase 6-ish time, long after the current crop of phase 1-ish characters has retired.


Do his original Marvel Knights series, but also use it for a celebration of the MCU.


Bring in older (now retired from the role) actors to portray the characters again.  Make it kind of a big reuinion.


Use CG techniques to insert the Sentry in Phase 1 era footage, showing how he's always been around.


Spoiler for the Marvel Knights eries
