Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:45 AM)

You know, this election is what has finally broken me of any confidence at any point of pre-polling data. I mean, it's always been sketchy, but this is just... aaaargh!

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:08 AM)

I was going to make an Auspol election thread in P&R, but the outcome so far has made me feel physically ill.

I have heard that, it's rather disappointing. Ah, maybe they'll just leech each others stores of "awful racist vote" and not go anywhere.

So I guess I shouldn't try to tie in The Room.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 May 2019 - 02:29 PM)

I was just talking cheesy in a dated filmmaking sense, not mind-bogglingly god-awful.

@  Sabrblade : (16 May 2019 - 11:49 AM)

Well, certainly The Last Airbender is worse at being a Superman movie.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 May 2019 - 11:31 AM)

Is that better or worse than The Last Airbender? I mean, they're both terrible, but....

@  RichardT1977 : (16 May 2019 - 09:28 AM)

And the worst Superman movie is "Dragonball: Evolution".

@  Paladin : (16 May 2019 - 08:01 AM)

the best Superman movie is "The Iron Giant." You cannot convince me otherwise.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 10:16 PM)

At least even in the first Christopher Reeve movie, when he caught Lois that first time, the background kept scrolling down for a second to indicate it wasn't a sudden stop.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2019 - 10:10 PM)

I guess you had to have been there. I did like the beginning a lot, though; the stuff on Krypton and in Smallville. The movie just got so cheesy once it got to Metropolis, though, it's kind of painful

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 May 2019 - 06:25 PM)

The performances, the cinematography, the significance of a comic book adaptation being treated like a real movie. Silly stuff like that. :)

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2019 - 05:17 PM)

Yeah, I've never really understood what people loved so much about it. Other than the score, of course, which was one of Williams' finest

@  Paladin : (15 May 2019 - 04:06 PM)

and it's not even the dumbest part in that movie.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2019 - 03:16 PM)

Flying Lois around was fine; it was all the Can You Read My Mind nonsense that ruined the scene

@  Sabrblade : (15 May 2019 - 12:08 PM)

The recent Shazam! movie had Billy bumbling his way through learning his powers. But all or most of it was genuinely funny.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 11:27 AM)

But yeah, in retrospect it makes me cringe the way he caught and carried the helicopter in his public debut in the first film...

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 11:25 AM)

(she wasn't in III long enough to be flown around)

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 11:25 AM)

You mean the Donner movie, the Donner/Lester movie, and The Quest for Peace (for which I don't know the director)?

@  unluckiness : (15 May 2019 - 11:09 AM)

At least he didn't try to fly lois around like in the Donner movies.

@  Cybersnark : (15 May 2019 - 10:45 AM)

My favourite is still from the first episode of the 90s Superman animated series, where Clark initially tries to catch the falling plane by its tail... which snaps off in his hands because physics doesn't work that way.

@  MEDdMI : (15 May 2019 - 09:46 AM)

I think it'd be boring if a hero could use their powers perfectly right off the bat and not have any unforseen consequences (though I also don't keep up with a lot of superhero stuff, so not familiar with those scenes)

@  Dekafox : (15 May 2019 - 09:23 AM)

Overseas, Kamen Rider Gaim did something similar after Kouta(the main character) got his transformation belt. He tried to do a whole bunch of mundane things with it cause he thought it'd make him better at them and they all go horribly wrong.

@  Paladin : (15 May 2019 - 08:59 AM)

superspeed causes enormous friction on fabric. the 1990 Flash had the same issue and it was mentioned in "The Incredibles" too...

@  fourteenwings : (15 May 2019 - 08:45 AM)

Arrow didn't have one (though Oliver got hurt a lot in flashbacks), Supergirl already had her powers, LoT gang also already had their powers mostly and in Black Lightning discovering your powers seems to be more associated with emotional trauma than anything comedic

@  fourteenwings : (15 May 2019 - 08:43 AM)

In the Arrowverse shows... I guess The Flash accidentally ran so fast he shredded his clothes? (totally not a chance to showcase Grant Gustin's "I'm not Glee kid anymore!" physique)

Best way to get SDCC Primal in the UK?

So I don't often go after SDCC exclusives but Primal is ticking a few boxes, primarily the fact it seems to be the only way to finish up the Prime Masters.

 

Problem is I'm in the UK, not the US. What are my best hopes of getting hold of this and, ideally, at a fair price?

It'll honestly depend. Potentially lots of the UK importers will sell them if they can acquire them via Hasbro Asia channels. That definitely happened last year - I got the Revolution boxset from Kapow.

Nothing on Kapow yet this year, but I do notice that ID Toys have a placeholder listing up:

https://www.indemand...-of-the-primes/

Basically, keep an eye on the UK import toy websites and you'll probably be fine.

I was thinking about picking him up at TFN, but I know it'd be super expensive, given that the wall of Velocitron sets was like £160 in-person - so I appreciate the investigation into alternate outlets.

Kapow has listing stuff like the special edition Blast Off and Wreck Gar, along with Nemesis Orime. Plus it has managed to get many (though not all) of the various show exclusives. So i'd keep an eye on them.

If indemand and Kapow fail, it be Ebay most likely but I'm not intersted in getting the Optimal Optimus black deco, while it looks kind of nice, I'm not really feeling attracted to it, thou I recomend you shop around on ebay and look at the postage stuff because some might seem more costly but it could pay the import fees/taxes.

I don't think they've been actually made available yet, they're not really sold out. ID toys have had to mega discount their SDCC exclusives over the last few years but that's a big risk.

But Repugnus lasted ten minutes on Kapow :-(

Nah, they have listed the SDCC stuff, everything else other than Primal is still available to preorder:

The SDCC 2016 exclusives had an official/Hasbro-sanctioned UK release via A1 Toys, but they barely sold and A1 ended up clearancing the last of the stock, so it didn't happen again in 2017.

If I'm lucky enough to get one of the sets on the 13th I'll totally be looking to sell the Prime Masters that, while realizing they're important to a set for others, I could not care less about.

Yeah, I have both the 3 pack and Fort Max. They were so desperate to clearance that I got SDCC Maximus for less than the standard version retails here.

They also got stuck with G1 reissues like the Insecticons that were going for silly prices by the end.

You can still get the Triple Changers and Insecticons from them for 20 and 30 quid respectively!

He's come and gone from Kapow now too, I believe.

At this point, your best options are probably watching eBay or putting out feelers to see if anyone in the US would be willing to middleman you one from HTS once they go up there.
