Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

@  SG Roadbuster : (15 June 2019 - 09:35 AM)

if we must have another zelda character, id want the king of red lion

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 10:38 PM)

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

they HAVE to put Travis Touchdown in at some point now, right???

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Right after Shaq.

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

I still want to find out how freezing people suspends them in midair

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Given Nintendo's relationship with Tecmo, I'm still waiting for Ryu Hyabusa

I'm still waiting for Doomguy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I just wish they'd release the Astro City paperback trades.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:31 AM)

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 05:31 PM)

yeah, i just need something small to plug into the wall. im not sure im taking my laptop on my trip later this year and i want a way to charge my stuff

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:04 PM)

They also have wall outlets with built-in USB in addition to the two regular plugs; I installed those around my place so I have USB ports everywhere

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:02 PM)

You might be able to get a generic adapter to use with it at Radio Shack if you know the appropriate voltages or whatever

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:01 PM)

It came with a USB cable with no AC adapter? A lot of lower priced electronics do that, presumably assuming that USB is pretty ubiquitous

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Yeah, must be, I guess.

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:59 PM)

maybe having bluetooth has something to do with it?

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

the one i got has an on/off button, and came with a usb to attach to my laptop to charge it. its this one https://www.walmart....ility/432985497

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 04:51 PM)

Selfie sticks have power? I thought they were to just hold the phone away from you

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:44 PM)

need some technical help.how do i charge my selfie stick without using my laptop? is there some kind of portable charger? i know it sounds like a dumb question, but i dont know very much about this stuff

@  MEDdMI : (08 June 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Different songs or overdosing don't work for me. My brain can play multiple songs at once. Best to do something else to distract me.

@  Xellos : (08 June 2019 - 05:36 PM)

Still, the worst is having the last song I hear before going into work being stuck in my head all day.

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Get a different song stuck in your head too. Let them battle for supremacy. Only the strong survive.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 03:53 PM)

Keep listening to it over and over until you got the lyrics memorized. By that point, it will start to fade out of your system.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

I've discovered the easiest cure for having a song stuck in your head is overdosing to the point of fatigue.

@  Steevy Maximus : (08 June 2019 - 12:27 PM)

Jedi Fallen Order sure does look a LOT like a Souls style game with Star Wars flavoring

@  Kalidor : (07 June 2019 - 06:18 PM)

I have a hard time believing that you speaking at length and with great detail is something you wouldn't be good at. Glad you had fun.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:51 PM)

Funny thing is I wasn't nervous at all. Might have helped that I was able to speak freely due to having assembled my speech from a lot of smaller segments I had previously told to my colleagues on the shopfloor, with a few punchlines added.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:49 PM)

Allegedly I did well. Lots of applause, and was told I was leagues beyond the guy who spoke before me (though that wasn't difficult, that guy was dry as a river on Mars).

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

So I volunteered to hold a small speech at our strike assembly today (lots of Amazon employees, plus some people from IKEA, Smyths toys and some other local retailers).

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 June 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Today Dolly the Sheep and Super Salmon, tomorrow Neo Sapiens. We're through the looking glass people.

@  Kalidor : (07 June 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Happy birthday @Pinkcolliebot

@  Pinkcolliebot : (07 June 2019 - 12:03 PM)

Today's My Birthday!!!

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 June 2019 - 03:16 AM)

Think how many copies of Optimus Prime's brain could fit on that.

@  TM2-Megatron : (06 June 2019 - 11:21 PM)

If only Johnny Mnemonic had had $25, he could've saved himself a big headache.

Yeah, I'm selling my two MPM's and not looking back. They're just Not Fun. Studio Series gives me what I want from a movie line, and is actually funt o handle. I'm glad I got that version of VW Bee and never considered the MPM one.

I find the MPM Bee much, much less infuriating than the Studio one, but also I hate the Studio one, so.

 

Ironhide is my only big disappointment from MPM so far. He is so, so gorgeous to look at, but such a flawed, flawed toy.

 

Otherwise, they're definitely the best Prime, Camaro Bee and Barricade I've ever owned.

Yeah, Ironhide is the only real failure of the line. Bee and Barricade are both great, Prime is mostly great other than the issues with the cab in vehicle mode, and VW Bee is good but really needs some better instructions, especially on how to do the hands in vehicle mode. But like I said up there somewhere, you can't fix Ironhide by making some minor changes to pegs or whatever, you'd have to totally redesign the chest and arms.

Hey folks.  Somewhat piggybacking on my "downsizing the collection" thread, I was looking online to see what some of my spare figures are fetching currently.

 

When I came across the 1st issue of MP-01 Optimus Prime, I was a bit shocked to see what people are asking for this guy, with listings up in the $800-$900 range (with lots of watchers).  I have two of these.  One is MISB, the other is the one I've used to display from time to time over the years.  Is a MISB one really worth that kind of money?  Just seems a bit crazy to me.

Ironhide is the only MPM to be complete garbage but the way I see it, SS gets comparable results for roughly half the price and space and on a more reasonable release schedule. Plus, they're easier to flip between modes..

With eBay, you should always check the listings that actually sold, rather than just going by current listings. Looking at sold listings for 'mp-01 optimus prime', it looks like sealed ones go for $200-300.

 

Sorry.

Ha, quite alright.  I'm honestly not sure if I would part with it anyway, as my 9 year old has really taken an interest in Transformers.  There's just so many I bought doubles of in those years that I may let a few go.  I never opened either of my New Years Optimus Primes...so they're not doing me much good either at this point.

I can certainly understand somebody who's not devotedly in love with the movie designs picking one or the other and sticking with it. Studio Series has been a pretty damn good line so far, he said hypocritically.

I have MISB doubles of first release MP-01 and MP-10, and while I love both of those figures, I regret getting duplicates.  I'd sell them if I thought I could get a decent price, but actually finding a buyer is difficult.

Yeah this Megatron looks objectively well sculpted to the point where I, who never liked his TF1 design, absolutely hugging love it. I'd buy it easily, because it just looks that good and imposing.

 

Jazz is nice too, don't get me wrong, but Jazz being nice was probable since his Studio Series already look so good, so Megatron's excellency is more impressive.

So, Megs just looks like you basically put him in a "Superman pose" and unfold his backpack. I'm sure there are probably a few other little things in there, but that assessment seems accurate. Further demonstrating the infeasibility in translating that TF1 design into anything that works in real life.
