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.

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.

@  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

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)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 January 2020 - 08:56 AM)

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 08:50 AM)

@  Ashley : (07 January 2020 - 11:50 PM)

@  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)

@  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.

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:00 AM)

For example, the English "J" sound consists of sounds that exist in German: Basically, it's just a "d" sound followed by a very soft "sh". Yet there are many Germans who insist on calling the late King of Pop "Michael Checkson".

Is it because of lack of demand, lack of people being able to log on and buy it, or people just dropping the line all together, increased production?

Probably increased production and the fact that he's included in the subscriptions, not as many people are running to the site at noon to buy him.

I'm dropping this line wholesale once my subscription runs out at the end of the year.

My list of reasons is long-ish, but off the top of my head, and in no particular order:

1) QC issues (What up, Roboto & King Hssss?)

2) Matty/DR no longer using UPS for delivery of merchandise for subscribers after this year.

3) Running out of characters I have even a modicum of interest owning as figure(s)

4) Mattel's playing fast & loose with the subscription "rules".

When I buy a subscription alledging that I will be getting "ALL" figs. that are not reissues but then you change it to not include She-Ra 2.0, well, you aren't going to win any points with me.

5) DR's phone reps basically not understanding a lick of English.

As I like to say, they speak it but they don't understand it, IYKWIM.

Apparently I'm way behind because at Wondercon they announced Leech (who looks awesome) and Hurricane Hordak. Hordak will supposedly have vac-metal armor (the figure looks very uninteresting to me). Leech definitely has some 2002 influence in him.

I don't know how to feel about Hurricane Hordak.

On the one hand he was the Hordak we had as kids, so I have NOSTALGIA.

On the other hand I never liked him as a kid because I always thought that spinner army made him look really dumb.

I'll definetly be buying the Swamp Thing, Voltron, and Queen Marlena & Cringer at the show. Kilowog is a maybe.

I'd like the Stay-Puft GB exclusive but like HTS's Galactus last year and this year's Death Star 12-pack and MU Sentinel I think it is size prohibitive as far as shipping it back to N.Y. Plus the price isn't exactly low at $70.00USD.

I might buy the Polly Pocket/She-Ra 3-pack depending on price and size.

As a lapsed Barbie doll collector I'll be skipping the Carol Ferris/Barbie doll.

I'll have to see what else they have in store but I'm actually more excited for the Voltron and Swamp Thing figs. than I am for the MOTUC item(s) at this point.

I'll also be buying the Franken Berry Hot Wheels and possibly the BTTF one as well, depending on size.

At $35.00USD I'm going to assume it is larger than a regular Hot Wheels vehicle.

I mean Franken Berry is only $20.00 and that comes in "premium" packaging so one has to wonder what makes the BTTF item $15.00 more.

Cringer looks fine to me. Then again I'm not a modern MotU collector. (would be if they were in stores...) I LOVE thd idea of doing The queen as both Queen and Flash Gordon Astronaut. That was inspired.

Voltron really doesn't impress me. I want to like him because I like Voltron but its too simple looking and primary colored for me. Bandai is looking ok with Thundercats but Mattel has yet to show me the Voltron.


ZacWilliam, is it wrong that the POP Doll set looks coolest?

Hum.

I'll probably get Marlena and Cringer. Superboy in cloning chamber looks cool, although I don't really collect that line.

I'll get Voltron because i'm a huge Voltron whore, but I agree with Zac in that the simplicity and lack of detailing is a turn-off.

I'm disappointed in the lack of articulation in the GL Movie Masters figures as compared to regular DCUC ones. I'm also a bit nervous about Swamp Thing's "internal skeleton" and how that will limit articulation. I might get ST.

So far though, there's nothing i'm seeing that's really lighting my fire.

It really reminds me of the Robot Chicken Voltron from their first season "You got Served" dance-off bit. It wouldn't be surprising considering they've already established that relationship but maybe they decided to downplay it a bit.

I think Cringer looks perfect honestly after all, he did grow quite a bit when he became Battle Cat. I'm also glad the Matty Collector version of Marlena comes in her space helmet outfit vs the dress.

Later this year I think.
