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.

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

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.

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.

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?

@  fourteenwings : (06 January 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Iunno, maybe people having unique pronunciations of things re:how they understand language makes the world a more colourful place, rather than one where we correct every seemingly grievous error?

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:12 AM)

Others insist on "Michael Yackson".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:01 AM)

Because the very combination of those sounds is unknown to them, and thus they avoid it as if it were contagious.

That's actually now my second favorite version of Aquaman. I still like the David version where he's basically Namor but with a beard and a hook for a hand but man this glory-hog storyteller was pretty awesome...and original!

I think in this particular case that's kinda part of the gimmick.
This is pretty much the Adam West/silver age style Batman. The Batman who always has just the right tool in his utility belt and always has the proper training to overcome any obstacle.
(To be honest, if they don't manage to use the Bat-Shark repellent in at least one episode I'm going to a little disappointed.)

Blocking telepathic signals using Tibetan "techniques"?
Disabling a mutagenic doomsday device he's never even seen before in less than a minute while fighting with a Gorilla?

Sure why not... he's Batman.



On the subject of Aquaman however.
I'm actually pretty okay with this incarnation, he's still the most useless superhero ever but at least he hides it under a mask of swashbuckling bravado.
It's worlds better than his role in the Justice League: New Frontier animation.

So...wow.

The Brave & The Bold christmas special was a lot darker than I had expected.

Oh sure it starts off in typical dorky fashion what with the Santa Claus vs The Martians...I mean "Holidays for Neptune" bit and then quickly sinks into the Batman origin story episode, and all that it implies.

The chrstmas special was the first episode I've seen. It was like watching the Venture Brothers.

It HAS to be intentionally overdone for comedic purposes.

Batman leaping from flying saucer to flying saucer stabbing them to death. Riding one into a giant xmas tree and burning it down. Punching the heads off santa robots. Throwing a batarang into a santabot and having him combust, burning the skin to show a Terminator style skull...right in front of little kids.

Nevermind the hilarious over-serious dialogue, like the repetition of "Crime doesn't take a holiday" or whatever it was he said.

I vastly prefer Batman to be dark and brooding. The movie series provided the opportunity for people to take the character seriously and as a mature story. Light stuff like this seems like it sets things back. Yet, the show was hilarious. I'll watch it again next week. Though I wish this was some other hero than batman. I loved the show, but not as Batman.

Yeah, I've never heard of Funhouse either. But according to the JLU Season 2 commentaries, series creator James Tucker seems to have an encyclopedic knowledge of obscure villains. They didn't use Toyman because they're making an active effort to steer away from villains who have been used extensively in Bruce Timm's DCAU.

And yeah, this episode was kind of a shock to me. I was expecting an average episode of the series, but then, seeing "The Mark of Zorro" on the marquee was like a punch in the stomach. I wouldn't say this was the best adaptation of Batman's origin, but it was very effective for this episode.

Oh, and for the longest time, I hated those shoulder pads on Red Tornado, but now that we know why they're there, I think they're kinda cool icon-ironhide.gif

People don't need dark and brooding in these trying times though. Dark and brooding batman is poser batman to me. He becomes redudant and stale after a while... I don't like to quote PvP, but dark and brooding leads to this.

Before I add wnything to this conversation, let me say this: I do not care for Batman. He's just kinda boring. However, Begins was very good and the Joker is my favorite bad guy ever (the Mark Hammil version mostly, haven't seen Dark Knight yet but it looks pretty good).

Now I'll say this: I saw the Aquaman episode. I also don't like Aquaman. But this...was great! It made me laugh and kept me interested!

While I can understand that, even as far as Obscure villians go; Fun House really just feels like a poor man's Toyman. Both being men the dress up as Jesters and used toys and robotics for their crimes. Just feels like they went with a stylized Superfriends Toyman and changed the name for some weird reason.

On this, I found out something interesting lately... Fun Haus (correct way to spell it)'s motive operandi isn't even the Toyman's. Some people on Toonzone mentioned that there was a evil toy company in the DC universe with the same evil toy motive called Fun Haus Inc. : ) Talk about obscure references... they just anthro-ed the company into a character.

Yes they are, although the Batman/Red Tornado episode was significantly more serious than previous episodes.

That being said I've loved every episode I've seen.
It's not my favorite take on the Batman but it's fun and enjoyable, and in the end I guess that's what matters most.
