Figures that Walmart finally restocks Studio Voyagers...with Wave ONE

@  ThunderWear : (19 January 2020 - 09:27 AM)

I snagged Rainmakers for half off.  They make me want jolly ranchers.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 04:21 PM)

I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:23 AM)

Well there is an overpriced limited edition, but I don't want to pay that much money for it.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:21 AM)

Well great. The one Usagi Yojimbo volume I don't have and it's out of stock.

@  Rycochet : (17 January 2020 - 06:15 PM)

I both love and hate that the Alien franchise seems to have had more luck finding a niche as a line of children's toys than it has at producing worthwhile films.

@  Donocropolis : (17 January 2020 - 06:35 AM)

I've seen them on the shelves at Walmart. They're pretty great looking retro Aliens toys. https://www.walmart....-Vary/934039489

@  fourteenwings : (17 January 2020 - 01:11 AM)

IIRC somebody on here mentioned an unbranded Alien toy a couple of weeks ago? It seems like it was actually part of a collection for the Alien movie series by Lanard. Mattel's making some stuff too.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 January 2020 - 03:12 PM)

The Collector Club is dead. Seems like it all came down shortly after New Year

@  ThunderWear : (13 January 2020 - 11:06 PM)

I can't get to the collector club website. anyone else? I was literally going to download all the fiction to finish reading.

Even in fallout, they never carpet bombed with nukes.

I hope the stockpiled nuclear weapons of the US and Russia are accounted for then.

@  Nevermore : (12 January 2020 - 12:22 PM)

Geez. 1760 (!) bombs from World War II that had not detonated and were still armed have been found. That's only the numbers for the federal state of Germany I live in, and only for the first three quarters of 2019. For all of 2018, the total number was 2811 (!!) bombs.

@  CVReynolds : (11 January 2020 - 11:05 PM)

I've been wanting a Tarantulas that turns into a more realistic tarantula for a long time. Maybe Takara will someday do a Masterpiece, which would be neat. But I really want to see a modernized look like in the IDW comics.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 January 2020 - 09:43 PM)

We need more Waspinators.. and rattraps.

@  Ashley : (11 January 2020 - 07:09 PM)

I'm on board with that

@  Dekafox : (11 January 2020 - 06:17 PM)

What I'm hearing is we need Cyberverse Waspinator

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 January 2020 - 01:27 AM)

He's appeared across more branding changes than Waspinator, so maybe it's more the other way around.

@  Ashley : (10 January 2020 - 12:01 AM)

is C3PO the Waspinator of Star Wars? he'll live forever, because it's funny for him to suffer

@  Sabrblade : (09 January 2020 - 11:52 PM)

I mean, it is easier to protect HDDs, and you can retransfer the data over and over forever?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 January 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Not in this comparison. He's making his own files, so they're (presumably) not restricted by DRM, so he can copy them as many times as he wants. It's potentially more reliable in the long term than hoping the specific copies you originally bought never accrue any damage for the rest of your life.

@  Echowarrior : (09 January 2020 - 10:44 AM)

I prefer physical copies too. Easier to protect something physical and tangible.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 09:55 AM)

I prefer having physical copies.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 January 2020 - 08:56 AM)

I have plenty of physical media I turn into digital media for my plex server. Just finished ripping Ultra Seven

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Isn't the general consensus that we're supposed to be over physical media anyways?

My current TV works just fine. I don't see a need to upgrade. And by the time I do, the Next Big Thing will probably be out anyway.

@  Benbot : (09 January 2020 - 03:58 AM)

Me neither. I'm no rebel, though. I'm just poor.

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Sounds like Victor Caroli but I’m not sure.

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 02:35 PM)

Should I recognise the narrator of the Mutant Hunt trailer?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 January 2020 - 04:30 AM)

I got me Titans Return Blaster, now watch them unveil Earthrise Blaster and Generations Perceptor, a retool of Titans Blaster.

@  ThunderWear : (06 January 2020 - 10:22 PM)

I recently switched to to the comic theme here at the Allspark and I'm so happy I just want to look at it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (06 January 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Can you not take so many lines to say anything?

@  fourteenwings : (06 January 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Iunno, maybe people having unique pronunciations of things re:how they understand language makes the world a more colourful place, rather than one where we correct every seemingly grievous error?

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:12 AM)

Others insist on "Michael Yackson".

Wow, honestly wasn't expecting a trailer unto like after Endgame.

 

And yeah I know that time table is kinda unreasonable but still wasn't expecting one.

 

 

-ZacWilliam, it looks fun. It's neat to see a live action Mysterio. I hope too much of the plot doesn't hinge on the VERY obvious twist of whats "really" going on with him and the monsters.

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.

Looks good, everything I liked about the first movie's tone is back.  Probably the movie I'm looking forward to most this year after Endgame.

 

Mysterio actually looks badass, that's pretty much a feat in itself.

 

I always cringe when I see someone get tranqued in movies, I worry that one day, somebody's going to fall on the dart and get it driven into their neck :p

 

I have one tiny quibble, and this is a little more about how Spider-Man is handled across media in general: I don't like how he's becoming a hero who's about the suit, and getting upgrades to win the day.  I'll reserve judgment for how the stealth suit is used in this film, but I've been seeing the trend in the comics and video games, and it feels wrong.  (And yes, I get the need to sell toys, and I'm already planning to snap up the Marvel Legends for this film.)

 

That all said, I think the red-and-black suit looks sharp.  Arguably the "original" colors for Spider-Man, I wouldn't mind if this became the default MCU suit.

Let's be real, "collecting" anything is just part of the nerd mentality.  For all his appeal, deep down, Tony Stark is just a technology nerd who likes to build powered exo suits.

Others have pointed it out, but I think it's important to remember who the trailer properly introduced and the context in which he's being introduced.

 

 

As for the Suit Parade...I'd like to point out that Peter left his suit at home and then Fury tapped him. Obviously Fury's supplying the suit/s. Yes, it's a means to sell more merchandise but it's also a logical means by which to get Peter into a new suit.

 

Happy hitting on May was...odd.

 

That theme chord at the end. I'm pumped.

Well, I expect it's a "teaser" trailer because most of that stuff is probably in the first half hour or so, before "Iron Man and Thor rolled into one" does his heel turn.

Watched the trailer, looks ok but I'm not super exicited for this, was surprised by Fury's appearance but exactly why is he trying to recruit Spiderman, seems kind of out of character, he is a kid after all and surely there are better heroes worth recuriting or is Fury trying to build another set of Avengers to replace the ones who are going to die in End game?

I must admit, when Fury appeared, my mind quickly went from "Neat, I wasn't expecting that!" to "Ah, Christ, I hope Peter's not just changing one father figure for another." His support system in these movies is wider than I like to begin with.

 

 

Mysterio, Hydroman, and Sandman?

 

And Molten Man, from what I understand.

Of course, given who we're dealing with here, I'm assuming these "Elemental Men" are just Mysterio's "Omnidroids", rather than the real deal.

 

There were rumours that Keaton was going to return in this film in some capacity, though.

I'm curious as to Mysterio's end goal here. Setting himself up to be a hero through illusion is a means in and of itself, but the MCU is established enough that he has to realize he's screwed the minute a real threat appears.

I really don't like how comfortably middle class MCU Peter is. I was willing to ignore it last time because they implied the school was for smarter kids but a trans Europe trip isn't cheap.

Also 'MJ' just feels like they dreamt up a woke OC and slapped a legacy name on her despite little to no connection with Mary Jane, partly because they already used up Spidey iconography in 2 cancelled series.

Actually, it's still plausible.  My last job was at Cottey College, a small private women's college.  It's HEAVILY supported in terms of scholarships, having been founded by the Philanthropic Educational Organization, a group dedicated to providing educational opportunities to young women.  The average family income of the students there is actually lower than for most state colleges.  They have a two week European trip as part of the curriculum every spring, and students whose families can't afford it have their way paid with grants.  It's not implausible that Peter's school has a similar grant situation (especially if Tony Stark has started throwing money at it!), which is why the whole class gets to go even though many of them are of modest means.
