He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

Each part of a combiner is a complete toy in itself, so no, not really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (03 October 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Aren't combiners technically BAFs?

@  Rycochet : (03 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

The Anniversary Beast Wars figures had BAF parts over a decade ago, the minicons of RiD2 had BAF stuff too, heck, the Takara PVC line had Build A Figures back in the early 2000s.

@  Paladin : (03 October 2019 - 01:35 PM)

can't believe Build A Figures finally came to Transformers...

@  RichardT1977 : (03 October 2019 - 11:26 AM)

Originally Galoob made Micro Machines, but Hasbro bought Galoob.

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 October 2019 - 09:49 AM)

Hasbro owns the IP, but licensed it out to WCT. Hasbro owns Tonka, but hasn't actually made a legit Tonka product in years. Basic Fun (IIRC) is taking that over next year from the existing licensee

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

 

Not in Endgame. That said, he's roaming the globe as a warrior after the loss of his family and when we first see him on screen its in Japan. They pretty much scream the name in terms of set up.

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?

 

Coleen and Misty were The Daughters of the Dragon. The only real all-female team were A-Force, which started in the most recent Secret Wars multiverse crossover, and continued for about a dozen issues in the main universe before being cancelled.

He didn't even have the new beard.

 
You know, it just hit me that the look of big-bearded Thor reminds me of that bearded guy at BotCon 2016 whose funny faces projected onto the big screen livened up the Farewell BotCon panel from being too somber an event.

I'm curious. Pic Pic! Or link.

These are the only pics I could ever find of the guy.

Really don't get the fat shaming claims with Thor.

I was signed off for 2 and a half months with depression. I went from doing a full time heavy lifting job to mostly just sitting around the house and gained weight. Weight I'm now struggling to shift (not helped by my already poor metabolism nose diving past 30).

I look at myself in the mirror and I'm not impressed. I see the embodiment of letting my fears take hold of me and making poor choices.

It's great that society is addressing various stigmas but some things are signs of failing and need to be addressed as such.

Not everything has to be some sinister agenda. Maybe the reason the villains of the real world (the ones making abortion illegal, persecuting trans people, etc) are getting away with stuff is because we as liberals waste time getting wound up over petty shit that isn't worth it.

It is a little complicated.  I think the visual of him without a shirt was intending to get laugh and I totally get it if that makes people feel uncomfortable.  It isn't a perfect world where bellies are played for laughs.

 

But while Thor was at an unhealthy weight, certainly, he was nothing that would be called morbidly obese.  I have a belly similar to his.  No one calls me fat.  To the majority extent it was not that he had a belly that was funny, but just that he didn't look like you'd expect without a shirt.

 

The majority of it is as HellCat said.  I don't remember what Rocket said, but I do remember what Rhody said and the look on his face, and I don't think Rhody was motivated by distaste for overweight people.  Rhody is a disciplined military guy who has always valued staying fit, a disabled guy who fought his way back to the top, and a post-snap guy who has continued to stay active and make the best of the situation.  He's needed Thor's help for 5 years and hasn't had it and didn't have a visual on what that meant.  Now Thor is in front of him again and he is this guy that has let himself go in every way.  Rhody has been busy trying to hold the world together for 5 years and could really have used Thor's help.  Thor probably told them he couldn't help with that because his people needed him, but it turns out he hasn't been helping his people either.  He has been sitting in a shack drinking.  Being overweight is one symptom of the problem that makes Rhody disgusted with him.  It was the thought of something coursing in Thor's veins that made him speak up, but the look on his face is because Thor just isn't the man that he thought he was.

At the same time, Rocket gets why Thor is acting the way he is (having acted similar in GotG2). Hence the offer to travel with the Guardians at the end of the film. Rocket's got a harsh exterior, but the GotG films and this one showcase he's got a gigantic soft spot on the inside.

Is this how people with no experience with comic book events act? Reminds me of when I saw ROTF with my sister and she was amazed I was like "Oh great, he's dead again. Give it time..." when Optimus died.

A busted travel plan meant my wife and I got to go to Endgame last night, me for the second, her for the first. Something that I didn’t notice the first time, because I was preloaded by someone telling me Cap ended up in 1970, is that he didn’t. 1940s cars drove by outside. He went back to 1945 and got the dance just like he was supposed to. But that makes him about 116 sitting on that bench.

Yeah, it wouldn't have made any sense to go to the 1970's to live. Since Peggy would have had 25 years to get married by then.

It was truly dumbfounding to me how many people thought all those people were permanently dead in Infinity War at the time.

 

As if Disney would cancel any potential Black Panther, Spider-Man, Guardians, or Doctor Strange sequels.
