What did it look like?

@  Donocropolis : (22 October 2020 - 01:34 PM)

I swear I remember getting the Happymeal G1 minibot as a child, but I live 2.5 hours from St. Louis, which is the only place they apparently came out. It's possible that I got it on a family vacation, though, as we went to Six Flags pretty often.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 October 2020 - 01:07 PM)

Conversely, I had the Gobot helicopter from Wendy's and I was absolutely convinced it was an actual Transformer.

@  Donocropolis : (22 October 2020 - 08:13 AM)

I used to rubber-band Hot-Wheels style construction vehicles together and pretend it was Devestator.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2020 - 05:26 PM)

When I was about four years old, my parents bought me Bugbite and tried to tell me it was Bumblebee. I was not yet a fan of Transformers, but I knew that wasn't Bumblebee. I didn't even have the real Bumblebee at that time.

It would come with two soundtracks: the eighties classic and one featuring dubstep and the VAs are popular Youtubers.

I just couldn't think of worse music than disco...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 11:35 AM)

What were you trying to imply with the mocking sarcasm, though? Nobody suggested that '80s music was any more "of it's time" than '70s music.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 11:18 AM)

I said that disco wouldn't fare much better with the same context: media is property of it's time; biases, culture and limitations are all inherent in that. Some stuff can be brought forward because of an inherently timeless nature or the simplicity with which it was made but lots of media is a time capsule of the period of when it was made.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 08:46 AM)

I'm not sure what you're trying to imply, or what you even think I said.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 08:11 AM)

Yeah, cause disco would make the transition so much better...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 07:17 AM)

I feel the '80s music would be jarring when running over current-day CGI instead of well, '80s visuals.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 05:39 AM)

Not a remake, reanimated scene for scene, like that fan vid titled they were always real to me.

Because we need more remakes these days.

@  Demovere Xeno : (19 October 2020 - 10:36 PM)

@Maximus: I paired the Battle Patrol with Ironworks and they look good together, though the Off Road Patrol would probably fit best as vehicles you're likely to find at a construction site.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:09 AM)

My local Walmart FINALLY got a restock of Generations during the early September reset and got a big shipment of Earthrise wave 1 (the first I’d seen around here). IF, and that’s a big IF, they restock I’m expecting a bunch of wave 3. Or wave 2. But we’ll be skipping one of those waves.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:08 AM)

@  Paladin : (18 October 2020 - 08:44 AM)

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 08:40 AM)

My local Symths is still chock full of Earthrise wave 1.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 08:24 AM)

Yup, generally so much they don't bother with any other waves as the existing stock doesn't sell out.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

All the damn time.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

If there's anything there's going to be plenty of stock, it's wave 1.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

I'm really not worried about wave 1 of a new line EVER.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 07:47 AM)

At least you got listings for kingdom. walmart canada won't list them until they're actually in stock and that could very well never happen. I'm gonna get mine from BBTS cause I'm not missing out on the maximals.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:32 AM)

And I don't buy the "they all sold out" explanation. The Kingdom figures are still listed.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:32 AM)

I don't see any of Friday's reveals at Walmart.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:23 AM)

There's a difference between "sold out" and "no trace of a listing".

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:23 AM)

There is still a listing for the scalped and sold out Walmart exclusive limited edition version of Gigawatt.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:22 AM)

But there should still be a listing.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 October 2020 - 06:30 AM)

Probably got scalped and sold out in seconds.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 04:10 AM)

And I don't see links anywhere either.

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.
