Ok, I can't find the "Savage on a Ravage" pic that soneone pisted. Can anyone link me to it?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 September 2017 - 12:47 PM)

I'm also sure you don't sparkle like a disco ball, otherwise someone woulda run you over by now.

@  Dracula : (21 September 2017 - 12:40 PM)

I'm pretty sure most vampires would cause a gremlin infestation just for the giggles.

@  Noideaforaname : (21 September 2017 - 11:42 AM)

Hmm, a vampire would have a hell of a hard time getting rid of a Gremlin infestation, wouldn't he?

Well then there's yellowing but isn't that all of them. I like to leave all my TF's in a hot car all day long to let all their joints turn to jelly.

@  OrionPax44 : (20 September 2017 - 04:57 PM)

@Robowang I have one somewhere and I can send it to you. Don't worry about it. Just let me find it

@  Bass X0 : (20 September 2017 - 04:43 PM)

Sometime last week, I purchased Hasbro Windblade online then a day or two later, Takara Windblade was announced for only £4.99 more making me instantly regret buying Hasbro's Windblade. Guess I'll be giving Hasbro Windblade to my nephew for Christmas then.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 02:24 PM)

That whole flat-rate shipping thing makes the math easy.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 02:23 PM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:15 PM)

Hmm. How much is shipping from BBTS?

@  NightViper : (20 September 2017 - 02:09 PM)

Set of the four is still $22 at BBTS

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:00 PM)

Ramhorn is currently available from a third party seller via Amazon for $27.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 11:47 AM)

Anybody have the TR PM OP trading card they don't want? I lost mine! Will pay you for it.

I guess he's gone now. Oh well.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I saw Ramhorn all over ebay for $16 a week ago or so.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 09:02 AM)

Just ordered Arcee.  I don't need her.  But she's pink.  And a robot.  A combination I love.

@  Darknova4life : (20 September 2017 - 08:57 AM)

@ Robowang, Where is TR Ramhorn available for $16?

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 07:31 AM)

Besides spotty, this is the first time I've consistently seen reships of older waves months after the next 2/3 waves show up.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 September 2017 - 07:29 AM)

No kidding spotty. Haven't seen of the recent waves, and I desperately want a seaspray for my brother.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 07:05 AM)

Distribution is so spotty these days that I've given in and just started ordering everything. I'm probably going to wind up with a $16 Ramhorn, too.

@  MidnightFox : (19 September 2017 - 08:51 PM)

So they've been out at regular retail hit and miss for awhile.

@  MidnightFox : (19 September 2017 - 08:50 PM)

I picked up Misfire at a Target in Mississippi in mid-August.

@  Shrug : (19 September 2017 - 05:09 PM)

I think so. I checked his post history just now and he mentions buying something in North Carolina

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 September 2017 - 05:04 PM)

A U.S. Walmart?

@  Shrug : (19 September 2017 - 04:41 PM)

Saw someone found Misfire's wave at Walmart on Reddit. First normal retail sighting I've heard. I'm more hopeful now.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 September 2017 - 04:04 PM)

I'm praying I will be able to find Misfire and Slugslinger at brick and mortar somehow.

@  Xellos : (19 September 2017 - 03:22 PM)

Getting the set of 3, myself. Figure I'll keep Hot Rod in package (still my fave character), and give Kup to my nephew to help expand his current fascination with Transformers.

@  Telly : (19 September 2017 - 11:56 AM)

i got slugslinger for $30 from amazon as well. i can imagine thatll be the standard price at most places since theyll jack up the price to cover having all those kup and hot rods sitting in their stores

@  Robowang : (19 September 2017 - 08:16 AM)

Yes, I bought the $30 one on Amazon. I'd rather just pay the $30 than pay $60 and be stuck with an extra Hot Rod and Kup I can't sell.

@  Robowang : (19 September 2017 - 07:34 AM)

Slugslinger, Misfire, and Triggerhappy look amazing together. Best of Titans Return, as far as I'm concerned.

@  Noideaforaname : (18 September 2017 - 11:32 PM)

gads, why is this site so bad at loading at times?

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 September 2017 - 08:29 PM)

Thank you Hasbro for having never reissued the 2011 City Strike Destro figure...already at $32 with a week left.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 September 2017 - 07:47 PM)

Asking someone which year of "university" they're in seems so much more sophisticated than asking which year of "college" they're in.

@  Bass X0 : (15 September 2017 - 04:38 PM)

It was "Take Your Laserbeak To Work Day".... well, for me it was anyway. I was getting bored of being on hold when I made calls, so wanted something to relieve the boredom.

See the internet has allowed people to make blanket judgment statements like the one Defunct just did without having even read the book. If it is terrible because you're not a JMS fan and don't care to read it because of it, that's one thing but I'm starting to get tired of fans making blanket statements without any reason to, or providing a reason for it.

This book possesses terribleness. It is a quality that is practically scrawled across the cover of the book. Calling it such is like remarking that your face has a nose on it.

Considering it came out when Dawsons Creek still was relevant I'd say it's closer to that.

This is a really weird and nonsensical sentence. Considering fiction is 'things that are imagined and not real' and people still love a lot of that. It also makes no sense even in context. Unless you mean Superman fiction, which is all that Superman is since he isn't real.

Ok, ok, ok, so after my initial negative reaction I have come around to a much more positive attitude:

If this turns out good(unlikely as that sounds), then YAY, new awesome Superman story!

If it turns out as awful as it sounds, then we can look forward to seeing the comic ripped apart by a certain hat-wearing comic critic in hilarious detail. Either way, we win! YAY!

the sentence looks weird but the meaning is that we, apparently are getting lower and lower quality entertainment these days, the arguments don't seem as inspiring as they used to be, not just in Superman fiction, but in all forms of fiction that we consume, be it books, movies, tv shows ,comics etc. low quality seems to be the norm these days, there's far more things to dislike in them these days than things people will like or praise about them. Sure, there are still masterpieces being produced, but looks like theres an overflow of mediocrity that fails to capture the essence of what people uesd to identify and relate to in fiction, (the cool factor that makes you appreciate it and makes it's memory last for the rest of your life) and people still consumes the product because there?s nothing else to watch or to read. I made the sentence into a question because I don't really know if it's really what's happening right now, and to see if what I'm saying is true, further studies would be required.

Well I'm against this on account of the assigned writer.

Article, however, describes the "makeover":
QUOTE
he now has a decidedly more emo vibe -- pale, leaner, and brooding.


It's definitely a Clark Kent that's aimed at the Linkin Park/Twilight/Simple Plan crowds... all whiny and angsty about his lot in life.


Whatever. If I want to see a young Superman done right, I can just check out Loeb's For All Seasons or Cooke's Kryptonite. hug this emo bulljive.

Well, it can also be argued that Superman just doesn't appeal to today's teenagers. No one grows up in an environment like Clark did anymore, but you can't change that, so what's the next best thing to do? Make him struggle emotionally when moving to Metropolis.

I know I had a lot of emotional issues when I first moved away from my small town to the big city. For the first time I was alone. No friends or family. Big scary city.

It all comes down to everyone's personal preference for the character obviously, but I know Superman has never had anything about him that I could really relate to. Now, that doesn't really mean I want him to be 'emo' or anything, but I wouldn't mind seeing his early development in life filled with problems. This is why I was drawn to Smallville initially.

If anything, at least it's not canon. At least you have that.


If anything, I honestly think this is testing the waters for something else.

Why should that matter? They're not changing "your" Superman. Just making another version that's more approachable. Doesn't DC have tons of Superman running around their Earth-#Whatever anyway?
Yep.
