just be happy your walmart even stocks voyagers. mine doesnt

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 January 2020 - 08:53 PM)

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)

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)

He's still waiting for them to be funny.

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)

@  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?

@  Paladin : (09 January 2020 - 08:17 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 January 2020 - 07:35 AM)

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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 03:38 AM)

@  Ashley : (07 January 2020 - 11:50 PM)

the comic theme is amazing

@  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?

Though the X-mythos also relies on mutants being feared and hated, while existing side-by-side with beloved aliens, enhanced humans, and gamma monstrocities.

It makes very little sense even within its own premise.

Bigotry and racial hatred has never been logical or intelligent in its choice of victim. It is by its very nature illogical and ignorant and unjustified.

-ZacWilliam, honestly I think that conflict between cheered Superhero and hated Mutant makes the "Mutant Metaphor" even stronger.

Spider Woman is likely off the table due to Sony.

Disney should just buy them too.
I really don't want the disney entertainment monopoly getting any more massive than it already is tbh. plus they literally already have Spider-Man in the mcu. That already happened without disney buying sony. I'm sure if anyone cared enough to make a spider-woman movie they could do that too.

besides Sony made Into the Spider-Verse, which is objectively the best superhero film ever made. so it'd be baffling to want to throw that away even it wasn't for something that we already have

Heroes are out there.  In costume.  You can see them, you can recognize them.  Those damn dirty mutants could be anywhere.  They could be anyone.  They could be in your head right now and you wouldn't even know it.

Honestly, I wouldn't mind if they did the exact same thing the first X-Men movie did. Just open with someone giving a lecture about how people with this new gene have been popping up in recent years. Treat mutants and the x-gene as something that has been around for some time, but is an only recently discovered phenomenon. Like something that researchers have only just recently been able to identify and classify. And I think you can expand on the idea of how prejudice against mutants differs from public heroes like The Avengers.

 

I drew up a speculative list of upcoming releases based on announced shooting dates and confirmed news:

May 1, 2020 - Black Widow

Nov 6, 2020 - The Eternals

Feb 12, 2021 - Shang-Chi

May 7, 2021 - Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

Nov 5, 2021 - Doctor Strange 2

Feb 18, 2022 - Black Panther 2

May 6, 2022 - ???

Jul 29, 2022 - ???

 

We also know Thor 4 and Captain Marvel 2 are being discussed as well, but until we get more info about a confirmed deal, it's hard to place them. Plus, things could always change.

 

Personally, my wish/pitch list includes:

Nova - Using Infinity War as a chance to recreate the Nova Corps with Rich Rider's original origin and some elements from the Annihilation crossover (featuring John C. Reily as Rhomman Dey/The Worldmind). Also, throw Chris Powell in this movie.

Fantastic Four - Use either Super-Skrull, Molecule Man, Kang, or Awesome Andy just DON'T USE DOCTOR DOOM AS THE MAIN VILLAIN. Have him be in a supporting role that Reed has to turn to in order to defeat the main villain. 

Ant-Man and the Wasp vs. Ant-Man and Atlas - Scott and Hope face off against Eric O'Grady and Erik Josten. Heck, throw Tom Foster and Raz Malhotra in there too.

Squadron Supreme - Literally just make a Justice League movie, Marvel.

Marvel started with its least meta heroes and villains.  I think what we have in store now is to become more comic book.  Captain Marvel just coming out of the gate and in a few weeks Spiderman will be fighting people who are water and stuff.  I really think the X-Men are going to be folded in somehow, though maybe not in a way that we expect.  But I am more sure that the Fantastic Four will be along as soon as they can get it done.

I'm kinda hoping Kang is the next big villain. He just has a lot of connections that make sense: Time Travel just introduced. Huge Avengers Villain. Nathanial Richards/Rama Tut connections to the FF, Iron Lad connection to Iron Man, Vision and the Young Avengers. Heck it's only a tiny stretch to tie him to Days of Future Past via Franklin Richards.

He'd be a good way to connect all the toys. And you could have a lot of fun with all his differing personas with different goals (Kang, Rama Tut, Immortus, Iron Lad, Scarlet Centurion, Victor Timely, etc all)

-ZacWilliam, either Kang or Secret Wars/Beyonder is what I would eventually build to next.

While it sure would be cute to see an Iron Toddler Morgan tearing up the town, I think we may be at least a few years away from seeing her again, unfortunately. Wouldn't surprise me at all if Tony left her a gift of armor she'll inherit later on, though.

Several weeks ago I took the Spider-man trailer as rumor confirmation.  Spider-man 1 had Tony looking over his shoulder the whole time.  Spider-man 2 has Happy doing some kind of handling on him and Nick Fury telling him to step up.  Iron Man is one of the happy positions that they CAN plug someone else straight into, but it is more interesting if they take a breather first and then replace Tony with someone a lot different.  I think we're going to have a flying Captain America next time out and that Spider-man was already Tony's protege and he won't be Iron Man, but he will be asked to take up some of Tony's slack for now.  Having the kid from Iron Man 3, about Peter's age, slip right into Iron Man armor steals a lot of the investement they've put in Peter.

It'd be interesting to see Iron Man 2020 show up (though I doubt it'd be fast enough to happen in actual 2020).

-ZacWilliam, also mostly unrelated I'd be super happy if Guardians 3 that has Thor in Space would introduce Beta-Ray Bill.

One interesting tidbit,  one of the potential names for "Endgame" was "Secret Wars", but the Russo bros. decided not to use it since a lot of people working on the MCU want to do it as a potential film.

 

Spoiler

 

That being said, I would expect any film adaptation of "Secret Wars" to be different then the original story.  The MCU films have done some diverging from the source material, for the better, so I look forward to seeing what they could do with it.

With Captain Marvel and Thor out in the cosmos, I suppose Guardians of the Galaxy will be the defacto 'Avengers' until they finish restructuring on Earth?

I'd rather Thor have his own adventures than staying with the Guardians though.

Have we had any kind of confirmation that Thor will actually be in GotG 3? Of course it's the obvious assumption after Endgame, but I find it hard to imagine that Hemsworth would be interested in doing that. I just kind of assumed that like RDJ and Evans he's probably had enough. 

 

it would sure add some fun to the movie though. Not that the original Guardians crew need help with that.

If they keep the not-quite-chiseled Thor, I can see Hemsworth being onboard. His biggest gripes with the character was the workout routine to get into/maintain the shape for the role.

 

Not to mention, Thor had one of the best stories in the run up to Endgame. Thor 2, despite being arguably the worst MCU film, was the catalyst that built upon Thor's story from Ragnarok through Endgame...it was a hell of a journey and Endgame made the payoffs worthwhile.

 

I'm certainly hoping this rendition of the Unworthy Thor turns up in Guardians 3.

 

 

EDIT: Actually I like the dichotomy the MCU finds itself in. The real heavy hitters have moved to the cosmic stage, and Earth's left with the talented and powerful...but not ridiculously powerful. Sets the stage well for both Galactus on the cosmic stage and Doom to become a legitimate power on Earth.
