I don't know about Hasbro's general policy but I know everybody was on lockdown for Frozen II, which included both LEGO and Hasbro. Plus, I'm guessing everybody is holding off PR for NY Toy Fair? Overall, it's best to remember that Toy Fairs are for buyers, not fans.

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:41 PM)

LEGO has been doing this for ages, including sending cease and desists when outlets get leaked images.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:42 PM)

And then they ended up selling off the brand, so I guess I wasn't the only one.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:41 PM)

Last time a toy brand I followed tightened down on toy fair and all the invited guests posted glowing reviews of what they saw, I ended up being disappointed as heck.

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:34 PM)

JediNews UK basically said they got a walkthrough of Lego's showcase...but were legally bound to NOT talk about anything, much less take pics.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:24 PM)

I wondered why I had seen basically nothing newsworthy from the event

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:14 PM)

Word is that Hasbro and Lego have their UK Toy Fair stuff on MAJOR lockdown. Full NDAs and everything.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 09:28 PM)

Seeing people say the $0.99 + $20 shipping item is cheaper than the $19.99 + free shipping item and getting tons of likes for it... I just don't know anymore.

There will be no UBI, people will just live in a ditch while they celebrate owning the libs.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2020 - 03:24 PM)

In 50 years, retail will be dead because all stores are staffless fully automated operations controlled by Amazon. The UBI will be less than a fifth of what it actually costs to live after two decades of cuts and.a steadfast refusal to match inflation.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 January 2020 - 02:55 PM)

In fifty years retail will be a thing of the past through robots, printers and Universal Basic Income.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2020 - 10:00 AM)

Walmart just needs to go bankrupt already.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:19 AM)

They didn't put the 35th anniversary stuff back out until after new year. I'm no retail expert, but I feel like having stock on the shelf is better than the back. Especially toys at christmas time.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Yeah, my local walmart took away the 35th anniversary endcap weeks before Christmas and left the Transformer section empty well past Christmas.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:44 AM)

Mine only has the 35th Anniversary Voyagers. A whole lot of them.

@  Telly : (19 January 2020 - 11:35 PM)

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)

Is it really a worse name than say, HMS Spanker?

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 January 2020 - 02:36 PM)

'Boaty McBoatface' was a actual thing?! Wow.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (14 January 2020 - 02:00 PM)

Might be worth bringing back this thread.

@  ThunderWear : (14 January 2020 - 01:53 PM)

Of course I had the idea to download all the pdfs like a week too late. Anyone got an archive?

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 January 2020 - 12:48 PM)

The Collector Club is dead. Seems like it all came down shortly after New Year

@  ThunderWear : (13 January 2020 - 11:06 PM)

I can't get to the collector club website. anyone else? I was literally going to download all the fiction to finish reading.

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 January 2020 - 04:50 AM)

News today is all 'there's a CHANCE it would snow in July' and 'dogs COULD bite back'.

@  Benbot : (12 January 2020 - 10:05 PM)

Holy crap, do many people get hurt by them?

@  wonko the sane? : (12 January 2020 - 02:11 PM)

Even in fallout, they never carpet bombed with nukes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 January 2020 - 12:43 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.

I've heard 8:30 pm Eastern/Pacific.

And if you don't mind spoilers, there's a wonderful summary of the first episode already up at: http://www.animation...?articleID=1482

Some of the designs for the character armor/costuming is wonderful, think I even saw Appa in something... ;> I shan't say more!

I wanna see Zukko either come to his senses or get the crap smacked outta him ike he so richly deserves. I'm still holding out that his siding with his sister at the end of Season 2 was part of some scheme on his part since I just don't want to accept that he's that stupid. But if he is...someone please kick his ass.

I still feel bummed that it looks like Iroh won't be teaching Aang firebending. I am very curious to see what they do with him, whether they keep him locked away, or some other easy out to avoid issues since Mako passed away, or if they let him get it back together and escape at some point.

Yea, that trailer is amazing. I got the official release of the high res version w/o all the screaming fans, it's amazing.

I agree. He needs to clean up his act and realize what side he's been on all along.

Also, I wanna see what Fire Lord Ozai looks like!

Or, more importantly, what side Azula's been on all along.

How the hell can he even contemplate trusting her?!?

I think there's a good reason why we haven't seen Zuko's dad's face... I suspect he's burned too, and its not a Father-son relationship Iro's been trying to recapture ..but an elder brother-younger brother one


but then again I like to over complicate things

Zuko doesn't Trust Azula... but he doesn't trust himself more... he doesn't know who he is...so he fell back on what he knows.

I'd missed quite a few episodes from Book 2, so picked up the box set last Tuesday to catch up. I'm now pretty psyched for Book 3 to begin, and thankfully for once YTV seems to be airing it concurrently with Nick; hopefully they keep it up for all 20 episodes. I'm still hoping that Iroh is the one to teach Aang firebending; at least initially.

I've got to say, though, after watching all of Book 2 over the last week that my favourite character is now probably Toph. With my intermittent watching (mostly thanks to YTV's weird schedule) of Book 2 when it aired, I never really gathered an appreciation for her character. However, upon a repeat viewing, the writers really did a great job developing her personality... especially considering the fact she's only appeared in 15 episodes whereas the others have been on since the beginning. It's impressive how many strong female characters this show has; both good and evil. I'm hoping this season Toph will get a chance to show more of what she can do in terms of bending ability against some of the already established Masters/prodigies like Azula.

I'm also really looking forward to seeing Azula being taken down... badly. Rarely have I actively disliked an antagonist to the extent I do her... usually cartoon villains have at least a couple redeeming qualities, and a somewhat sympathetic backstory. But Azula is terrible, and totally insane.

Toph is already badass. She intuited metalbending.

And Iroh had it right: "[Azula]'s crazy, and she needs to go down."

Nice, can't wait. It seems like forever since the last season ended.

Really hope Iroh is around and still plays a part in everything. He's been one of my favorite characters on there, and it's an archtype we really don't get that much, at least for more than 5 minutes prior to mentor dying to provide his student with rage/determination.

No, the general that Aang tried learning firebending from-- out of order-- which resulted in Aang severely injuring Katara.

Yeah, one of the few firebeander that could actually teach Aang how to. It would be intrestign to see them meet up again, after how much he's matured since their last meeting

I don't think Zuko will come to his senses per se. I think he'll go back with Azula and either be frightened by his newfound complacency or riddled with nagging doubts and guilt. I think he's going to end up being the one to kill Azula, and he'll die in the process. There is no easy, clean way to wrap this up. No kiddie-approved bloodless coup. The only way out is to kill Ozai and Azula and seat either Iroh or the Earth King as Fire Lord. It still won't be pretty, but it will end the war. At least for now.
Reclaim the suffix.
