And Ginrai aka "Magnus Prime, Metalhawk, "Liokaiser", etc. The real characters that Warden actually doesn't know about are the late EuroUK characters like the Turbomasters/Predators

@  Sabrblade : (21 November 2019 - 11:06 AM)

Warden and Friends did give us a Lione (Sawback) and a Shuffler

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2019 - 07:26 AM)

Or prominently featured in IDW, or an easy repaint of an existing toy.

@  Paladin : (21 November 2019 - 07:12 AM)

was she in the first 3 seasons of the cartoon? If not then she's on no one's list because they don't think she exists.

@  Cyoti : (20 November 2019 - 11:23 PM)

It's probably stuck on the low priority end of Warden's to-do list.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 November 2019 - 10:45 PM)

Because the only full-body Nightbeat was that Bumblebee with a new head one.

@  Bass X0 : (20 November 2019 - 04:14 PM)

Why has there been no new Minerva toys? I’m surprised at Takara. The Titan Master head doesn’t count.

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 November 2019 - 01:05 PM)

On my shelf I have Ginrai donning the Star Convoy armor.

@  Liege : (19 November 2019 - 07:42 AM)

That he is.

@  Benbot : (18 November 2019 - 04:01 PM)

And a good boy

@  Liege : (18 November 2019 - 09:19 AM)

Hound is at least a very good toy.

@  ThunderWear : (18 November 2019 - 09:11 AM)

Hound is the only other one that even comes close to Chromia in my area, and he ships in two separate waves.

@  Liege : (18 November 2019 - 08:58 AM)

This might be how they finally get rid of all the Chromias. I've not seen a shelfwarmer like that in ages.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2019 - 08:26 PM)

It's a good deal if you want a full set of Refraktor (and if they have them at your location)

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 November 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Here we can buy two and get one free, but at least two of them are gonna be the same toy, because lol distribution.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2019 - 01:01 PM)

In the U.K., it’s more like you but two, you only get one given how expensive they are.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Transformers are Buy 2 Get 1 free at Target this week.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2019 - 04:29 AM)

2019 has been one long South Park episode.

@  Sjogre : (16 November 2019 - 10:46 PM)

Okay, that actually sounds pretty fun.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 12:49 PM)

It was set in the forties, featured Nazi's as the villains and had Kiko fight mostly Ice Age animals and a mythical dragon that now ruled the island guarding Kongs treasure.

@  Paladin : (15 November 2019 - 11:37 AM)

and it was ALSO eleven hours long.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 10:55 AM)

In a alternate reality Peter Jackson made Son of Kong.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 November 2019 - 09:30 AM)

To be fair to boba: everyone else to go into the sarlacc was a sacrifice. Stripped almost naked and tossed, and didn't have body armor, a jetpack and a weapon.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2019 - 06:54 AM)

Nah, he just has to keep up his plot insurance payments so he can shoot his way out of the Sarlacc again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 November 2019 - 02:59 AM)

Funny, but everyone knows he bounty hunts for Jabba Hutt to finance his 'Vette.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 November 2019 - 02:54 AM)

Okay.. Not sure why.. but streaming is harder than jsut playing the game.. even though that's pretty much what I was doing.

@  Xellos : (14 November 2019 - 06:47 PM)

What type of vehicle does Boba Fett use for time travel? A Man-DeLorean.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

@  Patch : (13 November 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Just a particularly odious example of the 90s era of depicting transgender women as either the subject of crude humor, or "Jerry Springer" material.

@  Ashley : (13 November 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I think Ace Ventura legit contributed to me spending years in self denial. I will never be ok with Jim Carrey.

@  Benbot : (13 November 2019 - 01:22 PM)

I thought he since changed his tune.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 November 2019 - 12:51 PM)

Jim Carry Paladin?

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 November 2019 - 12:22 PM)

Don't doubt what he can do. Sonic the Hedgehog!

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 11:51 AM)

not giving a dime to a transphobic antivaxxer.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 11:25 AM)

It'll be a terrible movie if jim carrey phones it in. Otherwise it should be decent.

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 10:45 AM)

sonics' still gonna be a terrible movie but at least they whined loud enough to make him look passable for a 2-minute trailer. "yay."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:37 AM)

But of course to annoying people there's no such thing as different decisions made for different reasons, there is only "I like it so it's right" and "I don't like it so it's wrong."

With the rumor coming up that Matthew McConaughey could be under
consideration for the Captain America film, I was wondering how you
guys would cast the movies... It's hard for me to think of guys that are
shaped the way you'd want Cap and Thor to be shaped, who also have
the blonde hair and blue eyed look. I know that those things can be
taken care of by hair and makeup, but who would you cast?
Yep.

Well I can't find any pics of him and he's probably too old now, but Billy Smith, who played Thunder on the original American Gladiators was pretty much Thor incarnate.

Yeah, but it's going to be hard getting people into the seats by billing the
movie with "BILLY SMITH from the AMERICAN GLADIATORS!" That's the
biggest problem. There's tons to people who look like they could play both
Captain America and Thor, but not many NAMES, I mean, real stars, who
would be able to look like Cap and Thor...
Yep.

Then they might as well get The Rock to play Thor then.

But realistically, like you said, very few people fit the bill, even fewer that are stars.

Giving someone blonde hair and blue eyes is exactly the toughest thing to do any more. (Hair dye and colour contacts)

I think the key is finding good actors, regardless of what they look like.

Matthew McConaughey maybe look(somewhat) like Cap, but he's a horrific actor. (Also, Cap is not Southern. No no no no no no no no no no no no no no no)

Thor's a much harder cast than Cap is and I have no idea what the possibilities even are. Thor'll have to be a lot slimmer on screen than he is in the books.

I'd throw Thomas Jane and Aaron Eckhart out there, but they're already kind of
taken, although I'd love to have Thomas Jane as Captain America. From what I
could tell of my time on the Punisher Set (3 WHOLE DAYS) he really loved what
he was doing and wanted to make an amazing movie no matter what. But really
I'd love to see either of their chins in the Captian America cowl...

After seeing Karl Urban in LotR and Pathfinder I think he could pull of a more
svelte Thor. Maybe Dominic Purcell for a much hardier one, and then just to
round it would with three, maybe Josh Holloway (Sawyer from LOST).
Yep.

A ripped josh holloway(with someone properly shaving him) would be pretty good as Thor, actually.

I must agree. Coloring can be tailored to fit the part, talent can't.

I agree 100%, but who would fit both is what I'd like to know. If it comes down to
it I'm 100% in the "Bleach his hair and put Contacts In" camp. I want someone like
Downey who is an absolutely inspired choice for these two characters. It just so
happens that Downey is the spitting image of Stark in my mind, so everything was
perfect there...
Yep.

Too bad he's probably too old now, or you could just cast Dolph "I will break you" Lundgren as Thor. Just toss a wig and some armor on Ivan Drago and he's good to go.

Cap would also need to have a presence, be inspiring, as that's fundamentally important to the character.

Something Mcconaughey could never, ever, ever pull off.

Oddly I think that for Cap I would like to see Christian Bale

and one of the best people that I could think of for Thor is Viggo Mortensen.

I just think that Bale could do a heck of a job pulling of the all american soldier.

And I think that Viggo has the right rugged looks and decent enough acting skills to pull of thor with the right makeup.

Channing Tatum would make a good Steve/Cap (he's playing Duke in G.I. Joe)

and despite his pro wrestling past... Bill Goldberg is a pretty good actor and could pull off Thor. (or maybe even Odin)

I don't know anything about Captain America, other than what the character looks like, and the first thing that came to mind was Thomas Jane. Like you said, he loved what he was doing with The Punisher, and because he didn't like how they were treating the character, he left the sequel. That's what you want out of the star for these kind of films, someone who is willing to take it seriously.

That has been rumored on and off, but the last rumor I heard almost a year ago was that they were looking at Journeyman's Kevin McKidd.
