He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Benbot : (03 October 2019 - 07:21 PM)

Everyone needs a 1440 monitor. Just set up my new battle station and I never knew how much I was missing!

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 October 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Each part of a combiner is a complete toy in itself, so no, not really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (03 October 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Aren't combiners technically BAFs?

@  Rycochet : (03 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

The Anniversary Beast Wars figures had BAF parts over a decade ago, the minicons of RiD2 had BAF stuff too, heck, the Takara PVC line had Build A Figures back in the early 2000s.

@  Paladin : (03 October 2019 - 01:35 PM)

can't believe Build A Figures finally came to Transformers...

@  RichardT1977 : (03 October 2019 - 11:26 AM)

Originally Galoob made Micro Machines, but Hasbro bought Galoob.

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 October 2019 - 09:49 AM)

Hasbro owns the IP, but licensed it out to WCT. Hasbro owns Tonka, but hasn't actually made a legit Tonka product in years. Basic Fun (IIRC) is taking that over next year from the existing licensee

If they focus on the younger Mutants in this one, I think it could be good. They were definitely the best part about the last one IMO.

I'm fairly hyped about New Mutants. But I just don't see how they can do Dark Phoenix any justice. Fox has been keeping the X-Men pretty earth-bound. The original story was cosmic in proportions. Phoenix idly destroyed an entire star system just because she was hungry!

They'd have too much back story to deal with to even begin to try to get something near that level.

Oh, I know. And what I'm saying is that there's no way to do that and do the original saga any kind of justice. So...yeah...not too hyped for this one, gotta be honest.

I would be totally against Simon Kinberg writing and directing this, given that he co-wrote "The Last Stand", but he's been killing it with his work on stuff like Logan, Legion, and the Gifted, so he's earned a second chance at the Dark Phoenix Saga.

Disney is apparently buying the Mutants' rights. I wonder if this will now be the last movie with this cast?

I haven't seen any confirmation of this yet.

Personally if they do buy Fox. I'm hoping some things like Gifted, Legion, New Mutants, and Deadpool are left untouched.

Just got officially confirmed, thought it's a little more than buying the X-Men rights. :)

I think its most likely this will be the last X-men film for a little while, then Disney launches a reboot, fresh cast, no attachments to previous films maybe aside from the ocasonal joke. I can see Deadpool being dropped as he unlikely to fit with their future plans as movies, more than likely he'll be relegated to a TV series that meant to be a comedy of a super hero or simply discard and swept under the rug. I can see the possibilty of X-men gaining a brand new TV show for kids in order to boost its profile with them since its been about 8 years since X-men had a actual TV show. Mind you I can see Disney looking at getting Fanstastic 4 restarted once more and being more faithful to the source but time will tell and what Disney actually wants to do with their property, some of which is more than likely to be simply discarded and thrown in the bin as it not in line with their "plans" for world domination!

I hope the Gifted, Legion, Deadpool, and New Mutants continue on unfettered. Being on the fringe of the license and either critically acclaimed or successful (Deadpool and Legion at least).

I do think that an 'X-Men' X-Men is probably going to be a long way off.

I can't see Deadpool being regulated to TV with its success.

yeah, if the second does as well (or better) than the first itll keep going. i just hope they realise that r rating is a help not a hinder...

As far as future X-Men films go, Patrick Stewert and Hugh Jackman have already had their last go at their respective characters anyway. Of the remaining original cast, I'm not sure who's left who's still under contract, but without those two...meh! Who cares.

Of the First Class cast, again, not sure who's still under contract. But even there, it feels like we've had enough of those movies.

I mean, don't get me wrong. If McAvoy and the others are still under contract with Fox, wouldn't those contracts still be valid after the buyout? If so, great. If not, meh! I'm not against a reboot at this point. And bringing them into the bigger MCU either way could only be a good thing.
