Everything's out of control.

*cough* w h a t?

@  Donocropolis : (19 January 2021 - 09:48 AM)

Cause your friends don't dance, and if they don't dance they ain't no friends of mine

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2021 - 08:52 AM)

You could leave your friends behind.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 January 2021 - 09:43 PM)

You could if you really wanted to.

@  -LittleAutob... : (18 January 2021 - 01:35 PM)

......... all wounds heal through God. *walks off*

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2021 - 01:01 PM)

Let me know when the WEAPONs wake up.

@  tigerhawk : (18 January 2021 - 05:18 AM)

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Heals many wounds

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 02:03 PM)

Time.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2021 - 07:53 AM)

Covid?

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 09:50 PM)

At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 05:36 PM)

I am figuratively dying to play with that cheetor.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

@  tigerhawk : (16 January 2021 - 04:29 PM)

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:55 PM)

@  Echowarrior : (11 January 2021 - 10:02 AM)

More Micromasters would be welcome.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 January 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Instructions unclear, have more sports cars.

@  tigerhawk : (11 January 2021 - 01:57 AM)

Or they could make the other Micromasters of the teams they half assed.

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 January 2021 - 11:20 PM)

There should be a box set of eight Stakeouts.

@  Bass X0 : (10 January 2021 - 08:27 PM)

There should be a box-set of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. But I'm not expecting it.

@  Nevermore : (10 January 2021 - 07:51 PM)

I hope there are re-releases this year!

@  tigerhawk : (10 January 2021 - 03:59 PM)

I hope there's rereleases of Earthrise Ramjet, Dirge and Ratchet next year.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

Oh no, he was loved. I'd argue he could have had a better life physically, but he was loved. Deeply.

@  Telly : (08 January 2021 - 01:42 AM)

as long s/he gave love and was loved, it was a good life

@  Echowarrior : (07 January 2021 - 11:10 PM)

@  Devcon : (04 January 2021 - 05:17 PM)

Depending on which dub: Either Decepticons or Decepticans.

@  Bass X0 : (04 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Deception is the French word for disappointment. What does that make the Decepticons in France?

@  Echowarrior : (03 January 2021 - 11:29 PM)

We're just tiny little specks, about the size of Mickey Rooney.

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 January 2021 - 04:33 PM)

It's a great big universe, and we're all really puny.

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned, a sun that is the source of all our power

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving and revolving at nine hundred miles an hour.

@  TM2-Megatron : (02 January 2021 - 11:57 PM)

relative to the speed that it's swirling around the centre of the galaxy, its rotation is fairly slow

@  PlutoniumBoss : (02 January 2021 - 09:31 PM)

I'd like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slowly.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 January 2021 - 07:21 PM)

The Earth moving gave us 2021.

@  ▲ndrusi : (02 January 2021 - 10:50 AM)

It does that.

@  tigerhawk : (02 January 2021 - 10:11 AM)

I think the Earth is moving.

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:35 AM)

Sunday evenings are awesome. Looking at the clock at 8 PM and thinking "I still have plenty of time before going to bed..."

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:33 AM)

Now I've been working permanent late shift for almost three years. Don't regret it one bit. One of the rare cases where the needs of the company overlap with my own preferences.

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:32 AM)

Before the permanent late shift was introduced three years ago (which I volunteered for as soon as the form became available), I always tended to plan my vacation for early shift weeks. Since the majority of the people in most departments prefer to work early shift and thus tended to plan their vacation for late shift weeks, there were usually enough slots available for me to get my request fulfilled.

I hate how without their bandanas you really can't tell the turtles apart.

 

You could in the 2003 cartoon since they were each a different shade a green.

 

Or in the current Rise series in which they all have their own unique designs.

 

Or, hey, what about their all having different voices in any of the shows/movies? That should indicate who's who.

 

Or their different weapons, supposing that each is armed at the time.

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.

Amazon wants $48 + shipping for that Shredder. Today I just got both the Shredder and the Foot Soldier for $48 total (and some change).

Whoever did the movie designs really nailed them and NECA is just the most awesome company ever for making pretty figures.

You must have really hated the originals, when even WITH their bandanas you really couldn't tell them apart.

(You could if you looked to their weapons, but that's always been true)

Neat UK ad featuring a CG Donatello

https://youtu.be/0wS9z-WRLHc

His head looks a liiiiitle too big but otherwise pretty close to what I'd like to see in a future TMNT live action outing.


It's apparently a series, the joke being retro heroes try to help people only to find Direct Line beat them to it. Don and RoboCop released so far but producer has shared one of Bumblebee circa latest movie.

Id really like a version of that toy colored like the the original toy. Super7 might come close with theor modernized versions lf old figures, but I like the aesthetic of this one better. (Never liked the 80s cartoon version of Slash)

Yeah, I’m gonna put up with the pixelated look for Slash, cause I don’t like the cartoon model.

 

But, I’m gonna end up with cartoon Slash anyway to get the non-pixelated Leatherhead.

 

If there was some other option that necessitated me spending even more money, I’d probably pick that one, I am that much a schmuck.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of faux-pixelated designs on toys. But I like the cartoon design even less. The Archie/SNES design has always been my favorite. So I guess for that I can tolerate the pixelated look.

Anyone else come across any Wave 1 sets on Target shelves lately? I found a Leo/Shredder set 2 weeks ago and a Raph/Foot Solider set last week.

 

At first I just thought I was really lucky, and happened upon some stock from the back that wasn't put out last year. But the amount of new eBay auctions I've been seeing lately for unopened Wave 1 sets makes me wonder if they're being re-released ala Bebop and Rocksteady.

Looks like NECA is doing some Lootcrate exclusives.

 

https://www.lootcrat...03_SP_TMNT_NECA

 

Not my cup of tea, but there are 3 crates available: a Mirage-themed one, an arcade one, and a cartoon one. Each one comes with a toy (Shredder repaint for Mirage and the other 2 unrevealed) and if you order all 3 crates, you also get a bonus toy: Bebop in a bunny suit.

 

There was apparently also an option to add the Spirit of Splinter toy to the order at a 100% markup, but I don't see that on the site now.

I would love that Mirage Lootcrate. But I'm afraid I've already blown my expendable income for the month. Gotta keep money back for bills. Still, it's nice to see there's no shortage of merch to feed my TMNT love for the foreseeable future. I felt like I'd ran into a drought there for a while.

Original 1990 Slash's figure is still my favorite TMNT toy ever. He's that great a design.
