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

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.

@  B-Fox : (29 January 2020 - 12:20 PM)

@  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.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 January 2020 - 08:11 AM)

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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 January 2020 - 05:38 PM)

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

Hated the animation for the first 1/4 or so. Not sure if it was suppose to be emulating a comic strip look where the color printing is not properly lined up with the inking, or if my showing was accidentally showing the 3d version, but it absolutely looked like a 3d movie without glasses, and was really grating on the eyes. I didn't notice it later on.


Yeh I experienced the same thing, my eyes kept trying to focus on the double images, very distracting.
Same here. Blue and red borders on everyone until they stopped later.

I had the same at first. Bluray, so I guess it's intentional. It made it hard to watch at first. But once it calmed down, it was a pretty fun film.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Just watched the Alt Universe cut. It's not so much a complete redo of the film as it does add in some deleted stuff of varying lengths. In particular, Ganke had a much larger role before the MCU turned him into Ned and this presents a very different central relationship where Miles learns things from him rather than Peter. Miles is also presented as much more of a kid in these scenes as opposed to the teenager he is in the final film. There's also a few scenes later which add clarity to a few minor details (for instance, Kingpin's team saw through the waiter disguises but kept quiet).

 

One awful difference- the 'What's Up, Danger?' bit has Miles smack into a truck and the music cut out. Really glad they instead gave him a genuine epic debut in the final film.

The Alt Universe Cut is included on the blu-ray, yeah. The 4K and (for those regions that got one and those who imported it) 3-D discs don't have it.

Wow! Did the cut have at least a part where the villains get identified on screen? That was my complaint before. Like Tombstone didn't get a name check.

There's a lot of new villain stuff but less so introductions.

- When MJ gives Peter's eulogy, Fisk is up next and pretends to be heartbroken. He says he won't rest until he finds who is responsible for killing Spidey, causing Miles to freak out and run.
- The "focus on saving one person" bit is a in a heart to heart Peter and Miles have after the Spider-People intimidate him.
-Random extra bits during the fight at May's.
-Spider-Ham pretending to be a novelty roast pig to fool Tombstone. Except when they leave he snarks over walky talky "Yeah, it's them. They think we're stupid!" Cut to the Spiders confirming that.
-Liv comes back as the collider shuts down, referencing Raimi with "The power of the multiverse in the palm of my hand..!", willingly leaping into the void.

Whooooooa! Lady Doc Octopus jumps into the void?!? So if it's canon, she's loose in the Spider-Verse verse? That's awesome! She's actually my favorite bit in the film and I'm hoping she and her strange tube-y tentacles would show up in toy form.

I'm going to have to watch this cut! Woo!

It is worth it. Some of the stuff they cut helps the movie but other bits are amusing but excessive meta gags (like Peter branding his plan to use the collider to return 'Spider-Man Homegoing'.)

It's not a perfect movie. I still have nitpicks (like the not-naming and the non-iconic turning point) but it was still awesome overall.

Hmm, but now that I think about it, was it kinda slow at the start? With the character background (before Miles went to the underground?) if isn't someone you don't relate off the bat? I thought it was kinda funny that he was 'kid from the hood who suddenly hit it big and got into a private school'. That's not too common, I think. Unless it's folks dreaming about it.

 

That's Miles's original origin. Have you ever heard of the movie "Waiting for Superman"? That was the inspiration for Miles. It's a real thing.

 

The start's slower because it needs to set everything up for all the payoffs down the line, and it needs to get us invested in Miles so when other characters show up and act cooler we're still on Team Miles instead of wishing we could see what Noir and Ham's deal is in more depth.

Guess I'll put this here.



He's fighting Static! See, I haven't read Miles' comic but I saw the movie. The weeeeeeird extra Spidey powers he has are :

Invisibility

He doesn't have any spider tech, right? No tracer, no weaponized webbing, no spider light or even a camera? He's not even scientifically brainy.

So with just spider sense, webs, usual agility, strength and speed...

... I think Static has him beat. If going by toon Static, with all the extra equipment Gear gave him, he can probably set enough long range traps and attacks to take Miles down. And if Miles gets close, electric field can fry him.

Miles also has his Venom Blast touch but its an energy based attack so I guess it probably wouldnt do much to Static. And Miles Spider sense is supposedly weaker than Petes.

Match up is up.

The info showed that Miles was also a tech genius? I didn't know that.

But it also showed that comic Static can pull severed limbs back to heal himself?!? What in the world?!

Good fight but Static's game Sprite look doesn't look as cool as Miles. The music made me think of how they played rap music or something during Static Shock too.
