I use a modern BM Thrust every time I go into the bathroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 January 2020 - 12:24 PM)

If you're old enough to actually know what Geewun is AND hate it, we're LONG past the prom days and should probably just go hit the bar.

@  ThunderWear : (29 January 2020 - 12:01 PM)

Man, I just realized Siege was our best shot at Vehicon updates and it didn't happen. My kingdom for a modern BM Thrust.

Get some gloves and fish it out. Might still have it's wallet.

You should stop recognizing the bodies.

@  Cybersnark : (28 January 2020 - 11:19 PM)

Someone killed Pagliacci and dumped his body in the water.

No, PlutoniumBoss. You ARE the bodies in the water.

It's only murder if they find the bodies.

Electrics are easier to use, quicker to clean, safer to operate. But there is no argument that a nice sharp blade does a better job.

@  Benbot : (28 January 2020 - 11:46 AM)

I've never shaved with anything other than an electric razor. I just don't want to put that much effort into it, but maybe I should start.

I have dyspraxia so use a electric trimmer, it's never smooth. NEVER!

@  Benbot : (27 January 2020 - 12:52 PM)

don't you hate it when you shave but miss a whisker and it bugs you all day long and you try to yank it out but you can't because it's too short to get a hold of but your hand keeps finding it whenever you touch your face?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 January 2020 - 11:17 PM)

Twitter's revamp is so dumb. Nowadays, even when I am logged out of my account, right-clicking an image on Google Chrome won't let me access a URL to easily get the image's full size. That functionality was so useful!

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 January 2020 - 10:01 PM)

But when was the last time you saw a major retailer (since TRU) actually allot shelf space for a Transformers Titan? Or the Vintage Collection Poe X-Wing? There's clearly some sort of disparity between "girls" and "boys" toys that give companies justification to create $100+ items in the girls segment in FAR greater frequency than in boys.

@  fourteenwings : (25 January 2020 - 12:56 AM)

"how expensive they were" Tell that to L.O.L. O.M.G. and the $129 Amazing Surprise (I mean I guess when it comes to the toy aisle Power Rangers isn't a juggernaut like L.O.L.)

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:18 PM)

I think the big reason we didn't see the actual combining Zords at retail was because of how expensive they were. It would cost $100 to get enough of them to make a Megazord, $160+ if you want the Ultrazord. Or parents could just get the dang Ultrazord for $40 even if it didn't combine.

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

Because they are "kids toys" not "collector toys"

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 03:27 PM)

1) I don't have Target. 2) can't go into my walmart. I'm surprised Hasbro won't sell the toys on Pulse

@  Bass X0 : (24 January 2020 - 02:43 PM)

I dreamt my phone was ringing and woke up to answer it.

@  Sabrblade : (24 January 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The Lightning Collection figures, the smaller normal-sized Beast Morphers Ranger/enemy/Beast-Bot figures, the role-play morpher and weapon toys, and the simplistic non-combining megazord toys have all been very easy to find at various Targets and Walmarts. It's only been the actual combining Beast Morphers zord toys (which are bizarrely being sold individually this time) that have been hard to find in stores.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:49 PM)

Thought I do question Hasbro's almost reluctance to have the toys available anywhere.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 01:44 PM)

i've been trying to sell mine for weeks...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I hadn't opened mine yet, but from what I've seen, the general agreement is that the Beast Morpher zords are much better than Bandais.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I'm guessing if they're going to do anything on the level of Legacy Zords, it's being discussed behind NDAs at Toy Fair

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 January 2020 - 10:38 AM)

Lightning Collection is good, and they're taking their sweet time on making Zords that are better than Bandai's Zords.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 10:34 AM)

So, what's the general PR fandom consensus of the Hasbro run of PR so far? I pretty much stepped out of the community after I got the Bandai Legacy zords I wanted.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 08:46 AM)

that would require someone to BUY Hasbro PR toys...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 07:17 AM)

Well hopefully see some cool PR stuff. Wish BBTS sold Hasbro PR toys.

@  fourteenwings : (24 January 2020 - 07:01 AM)

February 22nd through 25th, I feel like it was earlier last year...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 06:32 AM)

When is NY TF?

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:43 PM)

I don't know about Hasbro's general policy but I know everybody was on lockdown for Frozen II, which included both LEGO and Hasbro. Plus, I'm guessing everybody is holding off PR for NY Toy Fair? Overall, it's best to remember that Toy Fairs are for buyers, not fans.

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:41 PM)

LEGO has been doing this for ages, including sending cease and desists when outlets get leaked images.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:42 PM)

And then they ended up selling off the brand, so I guess I wasn't the only one.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:41 PM)

Last time a toy brand I followed tightened down on toy fair and all the invited guests posted glowing reviews of what they saw, I ended up being disappointed as heck.

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:34 PM)

JediNews UK basically said they got a walkthrough of Lego's showcase...but were legally bound to NOT talk about anything, much less take pics.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:24 PM)

I wondered why I had seen basically nothing newsworthy from the event

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:14 PM)

Word is that Hasbro and Lego have their UK Toy Fair stuff on MAJOR lockdown. Full NDAs and everything.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 09:28 PM)

Seeing people say the $0.99 + $20 shipping item is cheaper than the $19.99 + free shipping item and getting tons of likes for it... I just don't know anymore.

@  Telly : (23 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

if you havent already, y'all check your walmarts clearance aisle. i found siege six shot for $5. course, it could just be my walmart, but never hurts to look

Can't read it.  What was said?  Also, what does that mean for projects like the New Mutants, Kitty Pryde, and Madrox.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix will be the last proper Fox Marvel movie, presumably also the last in that continuity. The crew behind the camera has been thanked for their work but their services will not be needed any longer, as everything is moving to Disney. Apparently, the X-Men being integrated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a done deal, and merely awaiting the approval of the merger. Kevin Feige is “hoovering up” all of the Fox-Marvel characters, and is already planning for them all to go into Phase 4. This includes the X-Men, Deadpool, and Fantastic Four. In what capacity and with what actors was not discussed.

 

I know they shuffled the schedule a bit; could this now come out AFTER New Mutants?

 

and "side projects" mean nothing; if nobody's actually working on anything it's just as easy to scrap.

Dark Phoenix is February 2019, New Mutants is August 2019.

 

Hopefully they don't muck up Deadpool, as Kevin Fiege has noted that the formula for that one works.

I was really hoping this merger was going to just leave the X-Men separate. Not because the X films have been particularly good overall, but because I think there's still lots that can be done with other characters before retreading Xavier/Magneto/Wolverine again. Give us Thunderbolts, Nextwave, Annihilation, a decent FF, Doom as the villain of Phase 6, whatever, just no more bloody Logan...

For some reason FOX has decided to drop the "X-Men" part of this movie's title.

 

It's now just "Dark Phoenix" (with apparently a circle around the "X").

DOFP left me with pretty high expectations for future X-Men films, but Apocalypse let me down. While Logan was fantastic, it also left me somewhat depressed if that's the ultimate fate of the DOFP-corrected timeline. The X-Men films are a bit of a roller coaster... but one I can never quite resist the urge to keep going back to in the hope that the journey will ultimately be satisfying, somehow.

 

At the moment my enthusiasm for X-Men is high, as the original trilogy was released on 4K blu-ray this week with fantastic new transfers that breath new life into the films... even X3. And thanks to DOFP, X3 is now tolerable to watch since it's no longer an (unsatisfying) end, but a means to an end. Now we just need Deadpool to use that fancy Carl F. Bucherer time watch to tweak the end of Logan and give us a happy ending.

See, thats the thing with Logan. It isn't the end of the DOFP timeline. It isn't the end if Any X-Movie timeline. It is a completely seperate universe all its own and, although certain movie events may have happenee in the Loganverses past, they didn't happen quite the same way as in the films.

Mangold and Jackman tried to be really clear on that. :)

So the trailer is basically HEY KIDS, DID YOU ENJOY X-MEN THE LAST STAND?!

HERE IT IS AGAIN! EXCEPT WITH SANSA STARK AND JLAW!


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

So just like X2, they tease the cosmic force Phoenix only to scale it back to a "Jean's actually secretly evil" plot.

 

Also Magneto is still in these films despite his relevance to them ending in DOFP. I get it, Fassbender is amazing. But the character of Magneto has long worn out his welcome and there are other X-frienemies. I don't even see a whiff of Sinister, who was teased at in Apocalypse.

 

I remember X3 jaded me so bad that it took a friend literally shoving a DVD copy of First Class into my hands and not allowing me to bring it back to him until I'd watched it for me to even give First Class the time of day. And it was honestly a great film - not without problems maybe but certainly the best X-Film to date to that point. And I got so excited for this new direction for the Franchise...and I watched the filmmakers throw all that promise - that chance to do things differently - bodily down a flight of stairs.

Well there are hints that they are trying to do the space possession story with the Phoenix but other than the Blackbird/X-Jet breaking atmosphere there isnt a lot to go off of in the trailer.

I like Fassbenders Magneto but cant we go one core X-men movie without Magneto? But really other than the lack of what Apocalypse teased at the credits scene I really dont mind what I see. But thats both ways. Its just indifferent good or bad so far. But l would like to see the Phoenix story done better than X3 at least.
