@  Paladin : (18 June 2019 - 05:59 PM)

so anyway how is your sex life?

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 June 2019 - 10:50 AM)

These jokes are tearing me apart.

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 08:55 AM)

Only if the customer reviews give it all high marks.

@  Patch : (18 June 2019 - 04:42 AM)

Are they going to call it "I-Did-Nawtflix?"

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 12:48 AM)

I see, so what the world needs is a Tommy Wiseau streaming service.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 11:02 PM)

Well, Conan did start the trend that resulted in a wave of Barbarian films in the mid to late 80s

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2019 - 10:57 PM)

I keep wanting to read Corman as Conan

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:29 PM)

There needs to be some streaming service that caters to connoisseurs of schlock. Otherwise, a huge part of our cultural history will be wiped away. While many of these films are available on blu-ray, with more coming out each month, it's good they're also available for the streaming crowd.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:18 PM)

Corman did make an impressive number of barbarian films back in the day. If impressive is the word

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:11 PM)

I mean, where else are you going to see the entire Roger Corman barbarian fantasy library (legally) for free?

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:09 PM)

Oh Tubi TV, you are a haven for terrible films. Netflix, Hulu and Crackle all push for mainstream appeal and prestige, you got the guts to have ready access to dregs even the SyFy channel wouldn't air

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

Also you have Bayonetta and a bunch of Fire Emblem people.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

...I mean, Tales character. Probably up to/for it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 01:26 PM)

But what if I need to kill a god? Or several of them?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

Kratos is allowed, but only the one from Tales of Symphonia

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 10:56 AM)

So no Kratos?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:42 AM)

In any case I'd rather have another Fire Emblem character than another character from a PlayStation exclusive game who teeeeeechnically was in a spinoff.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:39 AM)

Kong had his name on the games first, but Mario was the protagonist first. It's debatable.

@  Rycochet : (17 June 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Wouldn't Mario be the one spun off from the Donkey Kong franchise, given that Kong was first?

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 05:19 AM)

I would count Wario and Yoshi, but not DK (might be because I wasn't even aware DK was spun off from the Mario franchise until I was in my mid-20s, but whatever)

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:13 AM)

But to be fair, Corrin is the only one I particularly dislike and it's really more boredom due to their blandness as characters

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:09 AM)

It would depend on whether or not you count DK, Wario and Yoshi as part of the Mario franchise or separate. Scratch that, there are more Mario characters even with just the mushroom symbol people but it's a close call.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 02:55 AM)

You'd figure Fire Emblem would have enough characters in Smash. Kinda feels like there's more FE characters than Mario characters.

@  unluckiness : (16 June 2019 - 01:20 AM)

And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 June 2019 - 04:11 PM)

Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

if we must have another zelda character, id want the king of red lion

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 10:38 PM)

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

they HAVE to put Travis Touchdown in at some point now, right???

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Right after Shaq.

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 08:09 AM)

Pipe dream Smash entry: The Prince from the Katamari series. :D

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 06:35 AM)

The space/time around them gets frozen too! ....or something.

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 06:01 AM)

I still want to find out how freezing people suspends them in midair

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Given Nintendo's relationship with Tecmo, I'm still waiting for Ryu Hyabusa

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 June 2019 - 07:19 PM)

I'm still waiting for Doomguy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I just started watching High School DxD (don't judge me...) and I caught on the Nintendo Treehouse some request Rias for Smash lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

I have having to watch a video to find out why someone wanted me to watch the video

@  Nevermore : (11 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

I remember when the TPB for The Dark Age 2 was delayed for an entire year...

@  Trpodeca : (11 June 2019 - 03:55 AM)

I just wish they'd release the Astro City paperback trades.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:31 AM)

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

Whoops, probably should have posted here instead of the post MCU thread.

What the hex is this misleading piece of plastic?!? It shows the Titan Hero Series Thor in his time heist suit and he's NOT FAT.



Other folks must have noted it before but there is NO fat Thor action figure. He should totally get one. A fat Thor in-action figure.

Yeah, this is a known issue. Look at all the preview art, and the promo art, and the trailers. He's not Thicc-Thor there either.

All of which reinforces the comedic, fat-shaming aspect of Thor's initial reveal: You don't get the big lulz if you know going in that Thor has cultivated a beer-belly.

But yes, we need a damn Thicc-Thor action-figure.

I still don't see Fat Thor as fat shaming (and I'm speaking from someone who is at that 350-400lb range), or as very comical. Watching Endgame, Thor's reveal in New Asgard made me feel like Rocket and Hulk...uncomfortable. Yeah there were jokey bits, but even I noticed the theater's laughter was more...uncomfortable...than anything.

 

Thor was in a very bad place in Ragnarok/Infinity War and it carried into the Endgame with consequences, culminating in that beautiful scene with his mom.

 

I, for one, am grateful that the toys managed to not spoil that reveal and allowed the best damn subplot the MCU's run to run uncorrupted. And now that the movie is out and done, I fully expect a Marvel Legends figure complete with Stormbreaker, Mjolnir, and a exchangeable "battle braid" head sculpt.


Don't fight it, it's coming for you, running at ya / It's only this moment, don't care what comes after
Your fever dream, can't you see it getting closer / Just surrender 'cause you feel the feeling taking over
It's fire, it's freedom, it's flooding open / It's a preacher in the pulpit and you'll find devotion
There's something breaking at the brick of every wall, it's holding All that you know
So tell me do you wanna go?

Yeah, I don't agree. The whole thing opened up as typical "laugh at the fat guy" comedy, with the added bonus of turning the usual shirtless Thor scene on its head.

It definitely became something else, and is almost redeemed by the fact that he didn't get a magical diet-blast at the end, but the way it started was more than just a little problematic.

Am I ready to skewer somebody over it, like some people? No. But I'm not going to hand wave it away, or pooh-pooh on the feelings of those that were genuinely upset by it either.

Keep in mind the two people who actually made fun of Thor were Rocket and Rhodey.  Rocket is one of the rudest, crassest characters in the MCU, him not saying anything about Thor's weight would have been grossly out of character.

 

Rhodey has had to deal with Tony for years, so I don't expect him to be polite, and has had to been overworked trying to keep Earth together while Thor was busy wallowing in self pity.   On top of this he was seeing from afar another one of his friends, Hawkeye, become a psychotic killer.  This is a guy who tried to walk off a broken spine, I don't see him being very polite to Thor in all of this.

Not my point. I never argued that it would be in character for Rocket to just shrug it off, and say nothing. In fact, it would have been just as out of character for Rocket to say nothing, as it would have been for Peter Quill to stay calm when he finds out that Thanos murdered Gamora.

Let me also be clear before we end up veering too deeply into P&R territory. If you find it funny, I'm not saying that you're a horrible person or anything like that at all.

It was problematic, and that's essentially all I'm saying here.

The rat is Loki?!? Kidding, hehe.

I read some stuff about fat Thor connecting to depression, since Thor was wallowing on his failure. That's why it was an important moment for him when he called for Mjolnir and realized he was still worthy. It (and his heart to heart with his mom) got him on the upswing out of the hole he was in.

On the misdirection of the fat Thor in trailers, he was shown when he was still fit when it was before the Thanos beheading (like retrieving Stormbreaker by Captain Marvel bit). They could have produced a fit version of Thor based on pre-five years later.

But the toy actually shows him in the time heist suit and not fat. He wasn't shown like that at all in the movie (not even in the trailer. It was just the other guys walking in their suits). So the toy is an actual anomaly, because it didn't occur anywhere at all. He didn't even have the new beard.

In terms of the Thor action figures: both Endgame AND Infinity War, Disney was playing MASSIVE misdirection in terms of the plot and merchandising.  The first wave of merchandising is FULL of misdirection: Iron Man never armored up in the team suit, Ronin was a whole 5 minutes, and War Machine has the wrong colors.

 

Besides, we're already seeing spoilers come out in terms of upcoming toys (Rescue, Hulk with the Nano-gautlet), it wouldn't surprise me if Thor gets a "final battle" release before the end of the line.  And if we're lucky, it'll be a bit "stockier".

War Machine wore more than one armor in Endgame.

But yes, not just misdirection, but flat-out inaccuracy. The quantum realm uniforms are not supposed to be silver, they were white on screen.

I'm curious. Pic Pic! Or link.

Ronin wasn't even mentioned as a throwaway name, right?

Reverse thing but was there a Marvel team of just lady heroes in the comics? I know Captain America had an arc where all the supervillainess got together (Suprema Strategem something) and Black Mamba, Asp and Diamondback made up B.A.D. Girls. Did Colleen and Misty have a team up name?
