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)

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.

@  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.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 January 2020 - 10:35 PM)

Why?

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 04:02 PM)

I've been watching South Park, Family Guy and The Simpsons with a straight face for a decade now.

@  wonko the sane? : (09 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

If that's what it takes to get you to take the medication, sure.

@  Bass X0 : (09 January 2020 - 01:52 PM)

If I go crazy, will you still call me Superman?

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 11:37 AM)

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)

I prefer having physical copies.

@  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)

i still don't own a Blu-Ray player.

@  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)

I haven't gone 4K yet, I'm a rebel.

@  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?

The new Batman cartoon, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, debuts tonight on Cartoon Network at 8 Eastern Time. I think it looks to be an incredibly fun show, and as it features the animation debut of Jaime Reyes aka Blue Beetle (the third and current one), it is a must watch for me. He just had his relentlessly-awesome comic canceled, so perhaps this show can help soothe my RAGE/SADNESS over that news.

Here's the series trailer:

I just finished watching this on Teletoon, and while I think Jaime was a little out of character at points, overall I was pretty damn pleased. This series looks like it's going to be some serious cheesy, awesome fun!

I'll leave comprehensive reviews to people that aren't as easily pleased as myself.

Please, please inspire series-saving sales boost...

I like this Batman. They're trying a little too hard to capture the "giant typewriter"-era Batman in places (i.e. the big vat labeled ACID), but I definitely like the new tech gimmick for Batman and his wry personality.

Yeah, Cartoon!Jaime obviously isn't exactly the same as Comics!Jaime, which was to be expected. But I was happy with this version.

I totally wanted to shout "YAY PACO!" when I saw he was there, too. I had wondered if any of Jaime's supporting cast would make it into the show.

Yep, a campy, fun Batman cartoon, with storytelling aimed at a younger audience, but still willing to use words like "killed" and "dead." I think its off to a pretty strong start.

Really hope we see some teenaged heroes.

since this is targeting kids, I'm sure we likely will.

I really hope we get a chance to see Impulse.

I liked it for what it was.

Is it going to surpass TAS as the definitive Batman? No, but it was still fun to watch.

Lordy, that was great. The humor was spot-on, the action sequences were orgasmic to the eyes, and the retro style works perfectly.

Here's an upload, for those who missed it.

Blue Beetle kinda throws me off, though. Compared to everyone else, he looks totally modern, and after getting so used to his portrayal in his excellent comic, I was not expecting Blue Beetle to basically be DC's answer to Ron Stoppable. Not that I mind that too much, as I liked Kim Possible and thought that show was funny and well done as well; just threw me off a little in the beginning.

Also, after watching this, I am again reminded of how much the animation in Transformers: Animated tends to dissapoint me compared to just about every other Cartoon Network action show made in the last five or six years. You don't get episodes with animation like 'Total Meltdown' in Teen Titans, Ben 10 (and Alien Force), Secret Saturdays, the Batman, and now this. Just kind of leaves me with 'animation envy', I suppose.
Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

This was pretty much awesome. Lots of clever humor, something to keep the adults happy as well as the kids, and Jaime's totally a Batman fanboy! It was really well done.

When Jamie's flipping through channels, one of them has a standup comedian saying "...it's called 'The Aristocrats.'"


I loved it. The humour was spot on, the opening was very delightfully Sprang-y, and it was just in general very fun.

It is definitly not TAS. It is more....well the Adam West Batman but with some TAS feel to it. I'm not too sure about Batman's voice but it definitly works for this style of cartoon. The fact that they seem to be using some charactyers that haven't been seen in the DCAU actually makes me somewhat happy.

Ironbite-can't wait to see more.

Huh. I'm guessing only you Canadians got to hear that, because I just checked to be sure and in the version that aired on CN in the US, the comedian says "..to get to the other side."

Okay, from the before-episode bit on BM:TB&TB, this show looks like exactly the kind of show that Venture Bros is a parody of. It's ludicrous and absurd but thanks to taking no stops for explanations, it moves forward fast enough that show pulls it off. Kooky.

Beetle is very good. But I wish Ron Stoppable wasn't being typecast. Friendly Batman is.... disorienting. I hope all episodes are this adorable and there's none of the common "Let's make it more serious in season 3" - I have to wonder what percent of production crew this show shares with Legion.

Not bad, I sorta feel the silly nature of this show could work with ten minute segments. I'll watch it when it's on and I happen to be in the room, and nothing else is on, but I don't think I can see myself making time for this. Still, I might change my mind when Sinestro passes rings around.

This show takes place in the DCU and everybody who disagrees is basically Satan.
Woooo!
