Did I say that? I must have been joking.

And you say you have no sense of humor, Nevermore. ;)

@  Nevermore : (27 February 2020 - 09:07 PM)

Gonzo, start a thread in the main "Transformers Discussion" forum with that information in the title instead.

@  Sabrblade : (27 February 2020 - 08:33 PM)

Gonzo, please don't go spoiling things like that in the chat box.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 February 2020 - 05:53 PM)

Tarn is in Cyberverse.

@  Benbot : (27 February 2020 - 10:24 AM)

I really don't like that guy. Show the toys, not your face. I'm tired of looking at him.

@  RCX : (27 February 2020 - 09:25 AM)

Toy Galaxy is excellent.

@  Benbot : (27 February 2020 - 09:03 AM)

I think you'll be save in Greenland.

@  CORVUS : (27 February 2020 - 01:12 AM)

Toy Galaxy is my favorite overall toy-related channel on YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (26 February 2020 - 11:29 PM)

Last year's coverage via Toy YouTubers was brilliant. However, since YouTube's new (unfortunately necessary) guidelines the companies barely invited any of them back, so all we get is super-popular collector's info.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 February 2020 - 09:19 PM)

If it weren't for Toy Galaxy's coverage video, I would not have known about the Defenders of the Earth figures. New toys of Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician? In 2020? I would have said you were smoking something strong.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:32 PM)

So the question is... has Madagascar closed down all its ports yet?

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:31 PM)

A couple that got infected attended a Carnival event with over 300 people in attendance.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

So the Corona virus keeps getting closer to where I live. Several confirmed cases in my federal state already.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 February 2020 - 02:20 PM)

Man, only having collector sites to get Toy Fair news from sucks. Did you know there is a 4" line of kids figures for the new Avengers game coming?

@  Dekafox : (26 February 2020 - 11:54 AM)

Since Omega already exists they could name it Auntie

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:07 AM)

Oh, and one last Titan,provided we can fudge things a bit to include a character from Transformers: Animated; how about something at least resembling TF:A Omega Supreme?

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:05 AM)

How about they find a way to make a mold they can use for both Broadside and Tidal Wave?

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 February 2020 - 02:13 AM)

Optimus Maximus, the mysterious titan of the Arisen, also Iaconus from Cyberverse.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 February 2020 - 01:33 PM)

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy....

@  Vexwing : (22 February 2020 - 03:26 AM)

I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 February 2020 - 08:47 PM)

@Dekafox, no DTP, but they DO have LILY Cat ;)

@  CORVUS : (21 February 2020 - 08:46 PM)

For me, it's "chocolate therapy".

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 08:32 PM)

@  CORVUS : (21 February 2020 - 07:28 PM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 06:42 PM)

Ahh. I remember watching Bubblegum Crisis 2020 or whatever.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 05:38 PM)

BGC?

@  Bass X0 : (21 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@  Telly : (21 February 2020 - 02:31 PM)

harlock is on tubi as well. not dubbed though :(

@  Rhinox42 : (21 February 2020 - 01:19 PM)

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

Regarding Green Arrow's arrows, are they non-fatal?  As several guys, including the Flash, were shot with them?  Those two in the Flash's back would have done some serious damage.

It's not the arrows, it's where they land.  But yeah for the most part a huge plot point for Arrow has been Oliver taking 'non lethal' routes.

Also, the Flash's powers allow him to "speed-heal" from injuries that would be much more damaging to non-metahumans.

For those who watched this and also currently still watch The Flash, recall how earlier in this season Nora showed Barry a newspaper from 2049. Said newspaper featured an article that mentioned the forthcoming event that this three-parter is building up to, so this big event has been in the works for a while now.

 

That article is referencing the "Flash Missing in Crisis" article that's been part of the show since the beginning. And is from 2024, so probably not actually about next year's Crisis crossover.

Unlike the 2024 article we've been seeing since season 1, though, that new 2049 article draws explicit connections (beyond the presence of red skies) between the 'Crisis in 2024' and Crisis on Infinite Earths, though, mentioning Psycho-Pirate and the "worlds lived, worlds died" tagline.

I'm guessing that future events - perhaps this season's Flash finale - are going to further alter the timeline and cause the crisis to happen five years earlier.

Was watching this with my mom and sister when I caught the classic 60's Batman reference in part 2, when Kara picked up the Shakespeare Bust out of the box in Bruce's office.  It looked just like the one that 60's Bruce used, tilting the head back and flipping the switch to open up the secret entrance to the Batcave.

 

I was surprised my mom didn't catch that before me, since she grew up with the 60's Batman. :D

Regarding Green Arrow's arrows, are they non-fatal?  As several guys, including the Flash, were shot with them?  Those two in the Flash's back would have done some serious damage.

As I've explained repeatedly back when Arrow first started out, arrows are actually less damaging than bullets; unlike bullets, Arrows don't (usually) break off and roll around inside a body doing further damage.

Most historical deaths from arrow wounds were actually from well after getting hit, from either blood loss (arrows are designed to do more damage coming out, so they have to be removed carefully, not just grabbed-and-yanked) or infection.

In a modern setting, with paramedics less than a half-hour away and single shots to shoulders or legs, most of Oliver's victims would stand a good chance of surviving, assuming the hit wasn't instantly fatal.

(Unfortunately, mooks on the ground screaming in pain and clutching their wounds would be distracting to a modern audience raised on the "one-shot-kills" school of Hollywood gun fights. Reality is unrealistic.)

I'm pretty disappointed in the whole crossover.  The first part was a lot of fun.  The trip to Gotham in part 2 was just there to introduce Batwoman, and didn't really add much to the story.  The third part was...a conclusion?  The whole third part felt kind of nonsensical.  And then it turns out the whole thing exists as a prelude to next year's big crossover.

 

There were definitely some good, fun parts in there.  But the overall story just didn't work for me.

"Crisis on Infinite Earths" in 2019 is surely the event that The CW has building up towards, hence the name-dropping of Psycho-Pirate and his on-screen debut.

You know, for the third part being a Supergirl episode, the majority of her show's cast in the episode sure felt felt more like guest stars in their own show. :p

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.

Saw the three parts. Would have been better if they didn't use the name Elseworlds since it's not really Elseworldsy.

So the brain switch was just cuz Destiny wanted Flash's powers but was still figuring it out so it was just a mistake? Then he saw Supergirl (Superman wasn't there) and decided he wanted those powers instead, ok.

Man, Superman is gone again? Boo.

As much as it hurts me to have Superman gone, I prefer it over the silliness of season 1, where his only presence was on Skype, or as a fast-moving CGI effect.

The bigger issue is that National City has a large population of aliens with abilities that would be useful for attack and defense, and we've never seen any of them lift a finger/claw/tentacle when things are going bad :p

Well with the Supergirl shows pretty strong anti alien climate currently its not too hard to figure out why. Im waiting for the inevitable planetary shield and the aliens are going to pay for it.
