Think of it positively, maybe your face just has optional no-slip surfaces

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 January 2020 - 05:38 PM)

I have dyspraxia so use a electric trimmer, it's never smooth. NEVER!

@  Benbot : (27 January 2020 - 12:52 PM)

don't you hate it when you shave but miss a whisker and it bugs you all day long and you try to yank it out but you can't because it's too short to get a hold of but your hand keeps finding it whenever you touch your face?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 January 2020 - 11:17 PM)

Twitter's revamp is so dumb. Nowadays, even when I am logged out of my account, right-clicking an image on Google Chrome won't let me access a URL to easily get the image's full size. That functionality was so useful!

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 January 2020 - 10:01 PM)

But when was the last time you saw a major retailer (since TRU) actually allot shelf space for a Transformers Titan? Or the Vintage Collection Poe X-Wing? There's clearly some sort of disparity between "girls" and "boys" toys that give companies justification to create $100+ items in the girls segment in FAR greater frequency than in boys.

@  fourteenwings : (25 January 2020 - 12:56 AM)

"how expensive they were" Tell that to L.O.L. O.M.G. and the $129 Amazing Surprise (I mean I guess when it comes to the toy aisle Power Rangers isn't a juggernaut like L.O.L.)

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:18 PM)

I think the big reason we didn't see the actual combining Zords at retail was because of how expensive they were. It would cost $100 to get enough of them to make a Megazord, $160+ if you want the Ultrazord. Or parents could just get the dang Ultrazord for $40 even if it didn't combine.

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

Because they are "kids toys" not "collector toys"

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 03:27 PM)

1) I don't have Target. 2) can't go into my walmart. I'm surprised Hasbro won't sell the toys on Pulse

@  Bass X0 : (24 January 2020 - 02:43 PM)

I dreamt my phone was ringing and woke up to answer it.

@  Sabrblade : (24 January 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The Lightning Collection figures, the smaller normal-sized Beast Morphers Ranger/enemy/Beast-Bot figures, the role-play morpher and weapon toys, and the simplistic non-combining megazord toys have all been very easy to find at various Targets and Walmarts. It's only been the actual combining Beast Morphers zord toys (which are bizarrely being sold individually this time) that have been hard to find in stores.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:49 PM)

Thought I do question Hasbro's almost reluctance to have the toys available anywhere.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 01:44 PM)

i've been trying to sell mine for weeks...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I hadn't opened mine yet, but from what I've seen, the general agreement is that the Beast Morpher zords are much better than Bandais.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I'm guessing if they're going to do anything on the level of Legacy Zords, it's being discussed behind NDAs at Toy Fair

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 January 2020 - 10:38 AM)

Lightning Collection is good, and they're taking their sweet time on making Zords that are better than Bandai's Zords.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 10:34 AM)

So, what's the general PR fandom consensus of the Hasbro run of PR so far? I pretty much stepped out of the community after I got the Bandai Legacy zords I wanted.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 08:46 AM)

that would require someone to BUY Hasbro PR toys...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 07:17 AM)

Well hopefully see some cool PR stuff. Wish BBTS sold Hasbro PR toys.

@  fourteenwings : (24 January 2020 - 07:01 AM)

February 22nd through 25th, I feel like it was earlier last year...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 06:32 AM)

When is NY TF?

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:43 PM)

I don't know about Hasbro's general policy but I know everybody was on lockdown for Frozen II, which included both LEGO and Hasbro. Plus, I'm guessing everybody is holding off PR for NY Toy Fair? Overall, it's best to remember that Toy Fairs are for buyers, not fans.

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:41 PM)

LEGO has been doing this for ages, including sending cease and desists when outlets get leaked images.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:42 PM)

And then they ended up selling off the brand, so I guess I wasn't the only one.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:41 PM)

Last time a toy brand I followed tightened down on toy fair and all the invited guests posted glowing reviews of what they saw, I ended up being disappointed as heck.

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:34 PM)

JediNews UK basically said they got a walkthrough of Lego's showcase...but were legally bound to NOT talk about anything, much less take pics.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:24 PM)

I wondered why I had seen basically nothing newsworthy from the event

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:14 PM)

Word is that Hasbro and Lego have their UK Toy Fair stuff on MAJOR lockdown. Full NDAs and everything.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 09:28 PM)

Seeing people say the $0.99 + $20 shipping item is cheaper than the $19.99 + free shipping item and getting tons of likes for it... I just don't know anymore.

@  Telly : (23 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

if you havent already, y'all check your walmarts clearance aisle. i found siege six shot for $5. course, it could just be my walmart, but never hurts to look

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 January 2020 - 02:46 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 January 2020 - 08:42 AM)

Disregard this.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 January 2020 - 06:58 PM)

Bold of you all to assume we won't wipe ourselves out in 50 years.

@  Benbot : (22 January 2020 - 04:27 PM)

There will be no UBI, people will just live in a ditch while they celebrate owning the libs.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2020 - 03:24 PM)

In 50 years, retail will be dead because all stores are staffless fully automated operations controlled by Amazon. The UBI will be less than a fifth of what it actually costs to live after two decades of cuts and.a steadfast refusal to match inflation.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 January 2020 - 02:55 PM)

In fifty years retail will be a thing of the past through robots, printers and Universal Basic Income.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (21 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

Big retailers just don't want money anymore, so let's not give them any,

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:12 PM)

This place is a madhouse, feels like being cloned.

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 January 2020 - 03:38 PM)

I took one step beyond the outer limits to the twilight zone.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 10:19 AM)

All retail is basically the same.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2020 - 10:00 AM)

Walmart just needs to go bankrupt already.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:19 AM)

They didn't put the 35th anniversary stuff back out until after new year. I'm no retail expert, but I feel like having stock on the shelf is better than the back. Especially toys at christmas time.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Yeah, my local walmart took away the 35th anniversary endcap weeks before Christmas and left the Transformer section empty well past Christmas.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:44 AM)

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

Almost forgot - 

 

According to the film, Cannon actually had plans for a "Masters of the Universe 2". They were working on it and a "Spider-Man" film when the numbers came back. They literally couldn't afford to keep the licenses after their last few big-budget numbers, including MOTU, flopped, and so both projects were halted. 

 

Thing is, they'd already spent $2 million on costumes and sets for both MOTU2 and Spidey. 

 

So to compensate, they told one of their writers to put together a script for a movie that could make use of everything. 

 

Cue "Cyborg", one of the films that helped launch Jean-Claude Van Damme. 

 

So yeah: He-Man helped launch Van Damme. 

 

 

 

That being said, though, you have to wonder what an MOTU2 would have been like...

It would have sucked since they would have rushed it out with a cheaper script and even more limited budget.  I heard that the script featured nearly all the action on Earth again, with even fewer opportunities for effects or makeup.  And Cannon would have probably cut even MORE by the time they actually shot the thing.

 

 

But I saw that documentary, it is (or was) on Netflix.  Quite entertaining.

New mobile game, Tappers of Grayskull. There's not much to the gameplay but it's kind of cute and the bit that got my attention is that it features the voices of Alan Oppenheimer and Cam Clarke.

Going through MOTU figures I dug out of my parents shed last weekend.

I always really liked Tongue Lashor but I would not have guessed I owned more than one.

Matty is annoying me with seemingly having issues with my CC (never been a problem with anything on this card before) two months in a row.  I'm hoping that my Filmation sub isn't canceled as it is not showing up in my subscription area any more (despite them assuring me both months that everything would be fine).

Anyone have Extend-ar the instant giant from the tail end of the original line?

Just wondering.

Yes, there's a story.


https://en.wikipedia...of_Cannon_Films

 

Finally got around to watching it this morning. 

 

In addition to being a documentary about the rise and fall of Cannon Films, the documentary crew behind it specifically highlight several movies or movie franchises that they feel were of particular note. 

 

As part of it, the live-action "Masters of the Universe" film is discussed, with a focus on how Cannon's financial troubles affected the overall film. They even managed to get Dolph Lundgren himself to speak about the film. And as a bonus, one of the theatrical trailers for the movie is available as part of an assortment of Cannon trailers. 

 

However, because such a large percentage of Cannon's output contained graphic sex and violence, the documentary has an "R" rating by virtue of using some of that footage, and some of the trailers they have are what would be circulated as "red band" trailers today. 

 

I found my copy in a $5 bin at the local Wal-Mart, so if nothing else the thing's at least cheap if you do decide to see it. 

Thanks for the link. Added to my NF queue

Watched the documentary last night.

Blasts through oh so many movies, without really going into any of them. Dolph has about two sentences. Mixed comments, as some people revile the producers, while others seem to admire them. Some seem to both admire and revile them.

 

The MotU movie should have had a much better ending. The final sword fight was supposed to move around the entire throne room. Sadly, the script was too weak, and the focus in entirely the wrong age group. Oh well.

Sorry, forgot to share these pics from NYCC from the Super 7 booth.  Got some pictures of their highly articulated He-Man figs, but I didn't really focus on the ReAction He-Man figures, or any of the MOTUSLE figures.  Although, I did get pics of the entire Street Fighter 2 & Alien M.U.S.C.L.E. figs they'll be releasing.

Man, hope of nabbing some deep discounts on Matty on Cyber Monday is dwindling. It looks like minimal effort is being put into the site anymore. Heck, Horde Wraith doesn't even have a picture, and that thing has been on sale all week.
