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)

Tonight dough owns my soul.

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

Stupid, delicious Ben & Jerry's.

@  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)

Enjoy the fudgy icing of this Hostess Cup Cake!

@  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.

@  Nevermore : (20 February 2020 - 08:44 PM)

And now I know and now I know and now I know that you can hear me, know that you can hear me, know that you can hear me.

@  Nevermore : (20 February 2020 - 08:31 PM)

Oh, oh, people can you hear me? People can you hear me? People can you hear me?

@  Echowarrior : (20 February 2020 - 06:39 PM)

That is going to be a ridiculous shit show... but it'll probably bump brand recognition for a year or two until people actually realize how badly the whole hit the ground.

They didn't learn from the last time they tried this and ended up killing the show for a few years?

 

Not like it's going to be a big loss anyway. Pretty much every major developer has their own convention now-a-days to announce to the friendliest crowds possible (And yet Blizzard still managed to screw that up), so E3's relevance has long since waned. I mean, this year wasn't it Sony who simply didn't even bother to show up? I suspect the writing is on the wall and E3 is desperately failing to remain relevant by appealing to the "Influencers" crowd.

 

I mean, these are people who love to get their ego stroked, and what better stage to be stroked upon than E3?

It is when companies like Nintendo and Sony decide to hold their own and cut out the middle man.

 

Plus it seems like people are already seeing through ESA's bullshit:

Wow. The ESA literally puts it in writing:

In 2020, let's exploit the charitable instincts many content creators have, because it's too expensive to pay them what they deserve.

See, I don't functionally have a problem with your concept, but truthfully: that's not what their doing. They're trying to turn E3 into the the hugging instagram of video games.

This whole thing reeks of "old people don't understand". Like, the whole reason Keanu got the reception he did, isn't because "Hey someone famous and popular lets pay attention to that." its because it was a totally left field play. No one knew he was gonna be there, no one expected him to be there, and bam there he was. This is the kinda "surprise mechanics" that gamers like. You can't build you're damn show around that, because it removes the 'wow factor'. If you got a dockets of who's gonna be there, when they're gonna be there, and where exactly you go to see them.. People aren't gonna care, at least not in the same way as they did about Keanu.

It reeks of one part "old people don't understand" because the ESA has absolutely no idea what it gamers actually want, or how to represent the companies that make them. And one part "desperation and fear" because they are literally flailing to keep this one aspect of legitimacy to their existence alive.

 

This is nothing less than a desperate life support move. Attendance (and consequently, importance.) will drop year to year until it's literally just influencers fawning over themselves and wondering why the E3 hashtag isn't trending.

Remember that E3 is run by the ESA, which is a lobbyist firm for the videogame industry that has its origins in defending the industry from the videogame violence scare of the early 90's over games like Mortal Kombat and Night Trap. (Which lead to the creation of the ESRB)

 

E3 itself was primarily a trade show, intended for publishers, developers and retailers to spit numbers at each other and make business deals; media presence was a distant, secondary concern.  It was only as enthusiast press started to take off, and then later when streaming gave people at home a front row seat, did E3 start to become more known as a media spectacle.  The recent push for a consumer friendly E3 has nothing to do with being for the fans and everything to do with the ESA trying to shore up flagging profits for E3, as everyone and their mother realizes they don't need to got to E3 to have a presentation full of announcements.  (Nintendo Direct, State of Play, Inside Xbox.. not to mention shows like XO and the Playstation Experience).

 

Given the ESA has been recently seen going to bat in favor of lootboxes, being anti-union and boneheadedly exposing the personal information of thousands of journalists and influencers, I think it's important to realize that the ESA does not, and has never, given a damn about gamers: they care about profit and if they can get that from gamers, they will.  And if gamers get in the way of that, then they'll side against them.

 

E3 used to be one of my favorite times of the year, but at this point I won't shed any tears if it finally goes away.

They were worked up over it because it was something that had never really been seen before. And, realistically, it was a pretty amazing feat given the technology they were working with.
