just be happy your walmart even stocks voyagers. mine doesnt

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 January 2020 - 08:53 PM)

Figures that Walmart finally restocks Studio Voyagers...with Wave ONE

@  ThunderWear : (19 January 2020 - 09:27 AM)

I snagged Rainmakers for half off.  They make me want jolly ranchers.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 04:21 PM)

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.

@  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)

Why?

@  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.

@  wonko the sane? : (09 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

If that's what it takes to get you to take the medication, sure.

@  Bass X0 : (09 January 2020 - 01:52 PM)

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

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 11:37 AM)

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?

Well at the very least it is keeping him away from Avengers and X-men that are generally much better for that.

-ZacWilliam, I joke... sorta. I was not a fan of most of his Marvel runs (save Ultimate Spidey) at all but he does seem to be doing much better at DC from what I have heard people say at least.

Man, I'm really annoyed that Marvel's ending their main Star Wars comic at #75. #50 was clearly meant to read as the exact midpoint between A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back, and the fact they didn't end it when Gillen left at #67 made me assume they'd be going to #100.

And as a follow up to my Star Wars complaint, I was going to post something I saw in the December Marvel solicits, but when I went to double check some info they'd been taken down, the site posted them early. I don't want to risk Disney's lawyers coming after me posting about what I remember.

Just going to say I got me four Legion rings (three for my friends and one for me) that came with the Bendis Legion.

Ended up buying the issue because they referenced Aquaman.

Hated the story for being stretched but whatever. Issue one is the only cash Bendis will get from me.

Most of the first wave of Hickmanian X-books have launched now - I think Fallen Angels is next week and that's all of them. I've enjoyed them all so far. They're all a bit more "now let's just do books about established X-Men characters acting like themselves", which is NOT what HOXPOX was. HOXPOX was a bit "here's a crazy story to set everything up, and everyone's acting like a weird robot clone or something". 

 

I like having the entire X-universe hanging out together in one place, like the good old days at the mansion, but... well, I'd rather it was At The Mansion in Westchester rather than... freaky living island guy. It's nice to have all the characters available to swan past in the background of the books they don't belong to. And there are some very interesting characters being used. Like, Mondo in New Mutants... Mondo was barely used in Gen X when he debuted, despite being a prominent part of the pre-launch publicity, and he's made bugger all appearances since AFAIK. Black Tom in X-Force. The Excalibur roster of Rogue, Gambit, Jubilee, Betsy and Apocalypse is like... can you build a cooler X-team than that? (And of course you can, but it's easy to choose boringer guys.)

 

The one thing that didn't impress me so far is X-Force #1

 

Spoiler

 

That's not to say the book's irredeemable, but it's the only debut issue so far that left me with an aftertaste of anything worse than "that was interesting". 

 

As an X-Men fan for decades, a dude who was pulled into the wider world of superhero comics by the X-Men, it's really exciting to me that we have a relaunch here that I'm enjoying so much after years and years of books that just never grabbed me. Interestingly though, apparently this Hickman stuff has been in the works for years and was placing limitations on what the intervening X-books could do, which may well be a part of why they never really sang? It sounds like there was lots of "you can't write what you want because it steps on Future Hickman's Future Toes" which is rarely a great environment for writers to flourish, but it's pretty much the status quo for shared superhero universes so maybe it isn't a big deal.

Good time to be a Midnight Sons fan too, with a Danny Ketch book and now Morbius. Bit early to tell really, but they both seem okay. 

 

Now where's my Darkhold Redeemers book, Marvel?!

im gonna give this morbius book a few issues before i really judge it...but i dunno, i REALLY (i am the only one i'm sure) loved the last morbius book...the one where he wore a hoodie and helped people in a neighborhood? LOVED it so much.

 

But that Ghost Rider book? Almost unreadable...that stuffs bad, sadly.
