Is Skyrim worth playing in 2020?

@  Paladin : (28 February 2020 - 07:45 AM)

when you use the character as a header image for a frontpage story, i think you lose the right to complain about anyone else "spoiling things."

Did I say that? I must have been joking.

Gonzo, start a thread in the main "Transformers Discussion" forum with that information in the title instead.

Toy Galaxy is my favorite overall toy-related channel on YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (26 February 2020 - 11:29 PM)

Last year's coverage via Toy YouTubers was brilliant. However, since YouTube's new (unfortunately necessary) guidelines the companies barely invited any of them back, so all we get is super-popular collector's info.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 February 2020 - 09:19 PM)

If it weren't for Toy Galaxy's coverage video, I would not have known about the Defenders of the Earth figures. New toys of Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician? In 2020? I would have said you were smoking something strong.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:32 PM)

So the question is... has Madagascar closed down all its ports yet?

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:31 PM)

A couple that got infected attended a Carnival event with over 300 people in attendance.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 February 2020 - 02:20 PM)

Man, only having collector sites to get Toy Fair news from sucks. Did you know there is a 4" line of kids figures for the new Avengers game coming?

@  Dekafox : (26 February 2020 - 11:54 AM)

Since Omega already exists they could name it Auntie

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:07 AM)

Oh, and one last Titan,provided we can fudge things a bit to include a character from Transformers: Animated; how about something at least resembling TF:A Omega Supreme?

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:05 AM)

How about they find a way to make a mold they can use for both Broadside and Tidal Wave?

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 February 2020 - 02:13 AM)

Optimus Maximus, the mysterious titan of the Arisen, also Iaconus from Cyberverse.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 February 2020 - 01:33 PM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

I'm sure that's what they're doing. i just wonder what form it will have.

They have already confirmed that the Parallax/Ion of the Black Lanterns is Black Hand.

What I got from that was that Black Hand is their possessed version of Hal / Kyle; Parallax / Ion respectively, but not the actual entity of death itself.

At least what we've been lead to believe is the entities of the spectrum are all massive creatures. We've seen Ion, Parallax, and the Predator. There's no reason Death's entity shouldn't follow the same rules.

Yeah, I was initially confused about that issue. It seems like Scar is saying that Hand is the embodiment of Death, and therefore the Black Lanterns' equivalent of Ion (whale) and Parallax (insect monster). However, like others have said here, it's more like he's the Black Lanterns' host for the as-yet-unseen embodiment of death, like how Sodam Yat is (or was, I guess) the most recent host for Ion or how Kyle was the most recent host for parallax.

By the way, the Predator (love embodiment creature) has only appeared in that one GL issue, right? It sorta came out of nowhere, making me think it had already been introduced. So has it appeared before?

Also, Tales of the Corps #3 kinda sucked. #2 was the only issue that really felt worth it to me.

Well, if all the emotion creatures are (so far) animal based, it sort of makes sense that Death's totem would be man, if you think about it in an ecological sense; man is the apex predator.

This is the DC universe. Man is nowhere near an apex predator.

I don't think man would have much of a chance against creatures like Parallax.


If it indeed was a humanoid, then it would be a twisted version of one, not Black Hand.

Where' Solomon Grundy in all of this? This seems like something he'd be involved in to some degree.

More to the point, I'm throwing Darkseid out as the grandmaster behind the Black Lanterns; it's the only thing I can think of that would make Batman's skull so centrally important to Black Hand's actions. Bats was the last person offed by the Omega Beams, wasn't he?

Solomon gets his ring in the next issue of his comic.

Dove's "refusal" of the ring is weird. That puts a whole new spin on the ball. Does that mean all the others weren't at peace? What part of the afterlife were they in?

What with Countdown, Death of the New Gods and Final Crisis (plus Seven Soldiers before those), I'm Darkseid'd out.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

Not saying it wouldn't be too much, but he certainly fits the profile of whatever the Black Lantern grandmaster is. The only thing that may certainly disqualify him is whether or not the time lines of the various stories line up.

But, seriously, what other possible reason could a cosmic death force have an interest in Bruce Wayne's skull for? I'm drawing a blank.

If it's not the real Bruce Wayne and it someone else's skull entirely, perhaps.

The only other villain that fits whoever the Black Lantern mastermind is Thanos, really.

Or, hell. It could be a new character entirely.

my theory is:

In the pages of Final Crisis, we see Bruce in pre-historic earth (or atleast that's what i think) well what if, Bruce had children in that time, and there children had children and so on. so in present day, everyone in the DC universe has Bruce's DNA. that would explain why black hand needed bruce's skull, to have something in common with everyone else.........

as for the space Black Lanterns, well that one i'm drawing a blank icon-wildride.gif icon-wildride.gif

anyone noticed that Black Hand is only targeting Earth's dead population??? why doesn't he go to OA and take charge of the dead GL??? or beter yet, why not go to the Black battery, sit on a throne or something and take charge of all of the black lanterns???? I do hope they explain why Black Hand is only tageting Earth.......
