Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

@  Nevermore : (12 December 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Cheddar can do just about anything.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

With my mouth, usually.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

Depends on how you're eating it.

Man I wish IDW could do a season 2.5 with a few writers like Michael Charles Hill or Donald F Glut or Paul Davids involved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 04:33 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

That's the first video I've actually watched.  Good stuff.  Need to go back and catch up on the others.

Thanks.

Surprised no one has mentioned the stuff from Toy Fair yet.  ASM got some nice photos of a bunch of stuff from it.

So... what's with the concept product Skeletor? Are they soliciting feedback for an oversized version of the original figure, or something else?

 

T2'd Faker head with NA Skeletor is a neat idea. Seems like it'd work better with a variant NA Sword of He, though.

 

Rio Blast looks cool as ever.

 

All that said, though, the Toy Fair showing really does make it look like the line is winding down.

The Pop sub has been a incredibly well received on He-Man.org. I've said over there that I think Light Hope is the most aesthetically pleasing figure in the entire line.

 

Fortunately for me, the Catra, Adora, and She-Ra I got my wife for Christmas (plus the Club Etheria sub) has hooked my wife, who now wants the sub herself. :D

While I'm not normally one for POP Barbies, I've got to say that the POP sub's line-up thus far is pretty damn decent.

You've got Man-E-Faces girlfriend, Madame Razz (essential POP character), some chick with crazy hair, and then that glorious Light Hope figure.  I mean, he's not even represented as a man in the show, and the 4H pulled that beautiful hunk of plastic from their imagination.  

 

It's just a shame that the same level of creativity and awesomeness didn't go into the Unnamed One.

 

Suffice it to say that Light Hope has pretty much sealed the deal on my POP sub, something I never thought I'd do.

I think that the (leaked) Unnamed One looks completely awesome, and is basically all I could have hoped for from the character. I'm super duper looking forward to him arriving next month.

 

LBD - yes, they're looking into making scaled-up repros of the original figures. Doesn't do anything for me personally, but more power to the folks who want 'em.

I loathe this line for its lack of gimmicks, which define MOTU for me more than the characters themselves.

That said, Rio Blast is one of my favorite toys ever, and they've sculpted this update beautifully. I'm almost tempted despite his maddening lack of proper gun gimmicks.

Yeah Light Hope and Entrapta look fantastic.  Even Double Trouble is impressive.

 

I got my Modulok & Glimmer today (about 10 days earlier than normal).  Both are nice figures, Glimmer is mostly standard PoP stuff, and Modulok is pretty great with mimicking the original figure.  Though I wish he had Filmation colors / outfit.

Matty's shipping infuriates me because it takes well over a week to get here.  For whatever odd reason, it always goes California -> Nevada -> Indiana -> Texas.

 

Glimmer's POP essential so there's that, but I'm definitely looking forward to messing around with Modulok.

Entrapta is nice because she is the only villain character from the original line other then Cattra.  

 

The subscription is really knocking out a chunk of PoP stuff.  Angella is the only really major character left I think.

Yep.  That's pretty much it for major characters, unless Matty ever decides to poop us a Filmation Hordak.

 

Minor character wise, there are still those two POP characters Mermista (which might actually turn out cool) and Peekablu (which I liken to Flutterina).

He has a chest flap that can fold down and then you peg a gun onto it.

There is no hole in his chest to allow the flap to fold away with the gun on, but you can choose to display him either with no chest gun or with chest gun as he sits on your shelf.

For completion's sake, I would include Spinnerella as well, since she is Netossa's buddy.  A little surprised she still has not been made with Netossa out there.

I don't know, but you're better off not bothering.  It wasn't good and introduced a bunch of newly designed characters to the fold.  None of which were interesting look but are probably meant to pad out the line as it comes to an end.
