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.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (14 January 2020 - 02:00 PM)

Might be worth bringing back this thread.

@  ThunderWear : (14 January 2020 - 01:53 PM)

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

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 January 2020 - 12:48 PM)

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)

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)

@  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)

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.

@  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".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 05:58 AM)

I'm talking about names that should pe easily pronouncable if you just bothered to pay attention to how it's done correctly instead of insisting on "I speak X language and this is how I prounounce it!"

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 05:57 AM)

I'm not even talking about foreign names that have sounds that don't exist in the speaker's language.

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 05:56 AM)

Something that really irks me is when people are persistently ignorant about the correct pronunciation of foreign names, especially when it's people they either admire or frequently interact with on a daily basis.

I think Cringer looks perfect honestly after all, he did grow quite a bit when he became Battle Cat.

Can't find a screencap with Cringer & Marlena, but compare his side with Adam here to his size with Marlena in the MC picture:

So maybe a little smaller than the animation, but not enough difference to look wrong to me. Cringer should be a bit smaller IMO as long as its not too small cause it makes the Battle Cat disguise better.


ZacWilliam, how about a compairison with 200x Adam and Cringer just for the heck of it...

Wow, that's a pretty cool exclusive with Queen Marlena. Cringer is a bit small, but that's understandable. I guess they had to sacrifice scale to keep the cost down.

Eh, yeah - he is a little smaller than he should be. I guess I figure a dedicated Cringer is something we never would see otherwise though and he's as big as they could make him within their budget.

They found the budget for a big yellow gorilla who'd never been in any form of MotU fiction. Meanwhile, Cringer's a core character...

Well, look at the ghost image below, with Cringer's head & shoulders scaled to around the same as the with-Cringer Marlena. And as the other caps below (from "Night of the Shadowbeasts") show, Cringer wasn't much smaller in MYP.

Most of the big yellow gorilla was reused for the Shadow Beast, though, so they were able to profit off the tooling twice. Meanwhile, Cringer is a cheapo one-time pack-in with no particular reuse potential. I also think his size is being misjudged a bit due to how low the toy holds its head compared to the height of its shoulders.

Yeah - he is undersized, but he's also cowering significantly whereas in the pic with Adam he's at least standing up straight. The toy still wouldn't come up to her waist with straight legs, but it'd be closer.

Well, sure. The former is a big ax-wielding gorilla warrior and the latter is Battle Cat's nondescript secret identity.

Believe me, I'd have loved enough size and articulation to pull off Cringer's "covering his eyes with his paws" look, but I can't fault Mattel at all for not wanting to devote such tooling to him.

I'm excited for Catra. I wonder if Mattel will be wary in selling more Princess of Power figures since Catra took a whole 30 hours to sell out rather than 3 hours. What with her likely being the second most sought after character from that line besides She-Ra/Adora (who sold out real quick).

I think(hope) they are comfortable with this. Maybe they've finally dialed in the right production numbers for going forward in which things last a little longer but still sell out in a reasonable time frame. Even something that takes a week to sell out is still a sell-out for them. I can't believe they'd start to worry unless something was up there for a full month or longer.

I ordered her the day after she was put up. With DotM getting released on monday, and all the effort I did to get anything on that day, I forgot all about her/

Didn't help when I ordered her on Tuesday that I was reminded that one of the nastier, mean spirited and just mean board posters here shares a name with her function almost turned me away from doing the order.
