@  Paladin : (30 April 2017 - 06:35 PM)

he's also addicted to Oreos. so, two weaknesses. :p

@  Foffy : (30 April 2017 - 06:34 PM)

I remember Justice League left out his eye beams and played down his strength a bit, which I presume was done to help deifferentiate him from Superman.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 06:32 PM)

There's a reason why he's considered one of the most powerful of the JLA. Only one they can depend on to defeat him is Plastic Man, due to his brain's malleability.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:27 PM)

Wow, reading about all his powers, he's actually kind of overpowered aside from his weakness to fire.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:23 PM)

Martian Manhunter can disguise himself as anyone, shrink, grow, become invisible, stretch out his limbs, pop out extra arms, change his arms into blades, do all sorts of psychic stuff...

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:22 PM)

Which is kind of dumb. Aside from being a super-strong flying alien with eye beams that wears a cape and has super senses, there's a lot of differences.

@  Paladin : (30 April 2017 - 06:18 PM)

the higher-ups at WB apparently consider Martian Manhunter redundant- a "green Superman." that''s suposedly why hes left out.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:16 PM)

I wouldn't mind seeing them put Steel in one of the DCEU movies, as long as they're better than the last three.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:12 PM)

Really, he should be one of the easiest JL members to cast. You can take any guy of any race who's muscular enough for the role. It'd probably piss off the purists who want everything to be as close to the comics as possible, but you can't do anything without pissing them off.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Foffy's right. I mean, they don't have to keep Martian Manhunter white. He can disguise himself as any race.

@  Foffy : (30 April 2017 - 06:08 PM)

@Paladin I feel like Martian Manhunter would probably be played by a black actor anyway, though? I mean, his VAs in both the DCAU and The Batman were african american. Also, movies are a separate medium from comics.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:08 PM)

He's, like, the least interesting Earth GL.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:08 PM)

Hal Jordan is honestly a really boring character.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 06:04 PM)

I mean, I don't hate Aquaman or Hal Jordan, but I like Martian Manhunter a lot more.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:02 PM)

Meh, if I were then I would have just used John Stewart as Green Lantern, but I'd also have used Wally West instead of Barry Allen.

@  Paladin : (30 April 2017 - 05:59 PM)

because then WB has a reason/excuse to actually cast a black guy in the movie.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:52 PM)

Nah, just stick him on a Wildstorm title, great idea.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:52 PM)

Like, it's nice have Cybog getting his dues, but you could've have had him replaced Aquaman, not the guy who's literally been on every incarnation of the team and is it's heart and soul.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:51 PM)

Why on the New 52, Martian Manhunter isn't one of the finding JLA members.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:50 PM)

You know what I'll never understand?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (30 April 2017 - 05:01 PM)

There are shops with lots of pre-owned stuff like Mandarake, so it doesn't necessarily need to be retail, depending on where he's going.

@  Msol : (30 April 2017 - 04:19 PM)

I wonder if Star Saber is still around at retail. I don't know what it all looks like over there.

@  Foffy : (30 April 2017 - 04:05 PM)

Ask them to bring back a real live japanese person for you.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (30 April 2017 - 04:01 PM)

I'd say "any TF you don't already have" but I guess that's too general.

@  Msol : (30 April 2017 - 03:46 PM)

So hey I've got a buddy going to Japan for a vacation. What would be a good thing for him to bring back for me on the cheap? I've already got MP-36 so I'm not sure what else would worthwile...

Perhaps the barnacle, consumed with guilt at what he'd done, took his own life after killing everyone

@  Lazy Garou : (29 April 2017 - 02:28 PM)

parasitic barnacles are the stuff of nightmares

@  MEDdMI : (29 April 2017 - 01:39 PM)

But barnacles don't have- *checks* "The main sense of barnacles appears to be touch, with the hairs on the limbs being especially sensitive. The adult also has a single eye, although this is probably only capable of sensing the difference between light and dark.[4]This eye is derived from the primarynaupliar eye." Huh.

@  ▲ndrusi : (29 April 2017 - 01:29 PM)

He looked in a mirror

@  Evac : (29 April 2017 - 01:26 PM)

He was killed by his own ugliness. Kind of a "Hoist by His Own Petard" thing.

@  MEDdMI : (29 April 2017 - 01:12 PM)

How did the barnacle get killed if everyone died from his ugliness?

I want a Primax Toxitron toy

When it became known that Toxitron was going to be a BC exlusive, I was stoked for an RtS Laser Prime repaint. And then disappointed to see it was an Animated version instead (though his incorporation into that universe was done well). Fun Pub has been known to make different-universe incarnations of the same character over time ? pre-BW Cheetor and Animated Cheetor, Classics Thundercracker and SG Thundercracker, G2 Breakdown and Animated Breakdown, etc. ? so I still have some fingers crossed that we'll see a Primax Toxitron eventually. But I wonder which mold would be best.

Originally I had no question about this; it was RtS Laser Prime all the way. And I would still love to see that. But in a thread on the TFCC forums, someone suggested DoTM Megatron, which I have to admit would be pretty fantastic too. It has the benefit of a tanker trailer, and Toxie is one of the very few Primax characters that the movie aesthetic would fit. There are multiple size options for Fun Pub to utilize, depending on how much they would want to invest in the project: Cyberverse Commander, Cyberverse Action Set, and Voyager. Of those, I would prefer the Voyager because Toxie should be as big and hulking as possible, and the shroud adds to the aura of hideousness. But Cyberverse is awesome, and the Action Set in particular would hearken to the original Laser Prime mold. In that respect, it's even more Toxitronny than the RtS mold.

What do you think? Which mold would you prefer, or do you even want another Toxie, having already gotten an Animated version?

Yeah Fun Pub can't use any Movie figures that appear in the films or are a licensed vehicle, so Megatron is out of the question.

I'd prefer him to be made from RtS Optimus like some customs shown on these boards.

Ah, well then. I have no hope of Hasbro doing this (as obscure as they've gotten lately, I think Toxie is still beyond their pale), so RtS Laser Prime it is. Which gets back to the other question: Do you even want to see another Toxitron at all? I definitely do, but I don't know how many folks might be fully satisfied with the Animated toy.

I've said it before... The majority of the appeal for Toxitron was in the spill deco on his trailer. The cab had nothing going for it as far as toxicity goes. It was just a green, purple and gray truck. I loved the purple and gray in robot mode, but...not "toxic".

So a RTS Prime, I feel, would be like half the toy. And the less interesting half of the toy at that.

Voyager Megatron would definitely be cool, but as has been said, Fun Pub couldn't do it.

(I do not want a RiD Scourge from RTS Prime either. As well-crafted as I've seen some customs, inevitably, the new transformation on RTS Prime ruins the Scourge homage.)

I recall you saying that you didn't think Animated Toxie's drippy-gloop deco would match the RtS mold's realism, and I agree. But I do think a grungy "spray" paint-app, like he'd driven through toxic mud, would work quite well. The main benefit I see in the trailer is the idea that he's carrying the toxic waste – and in the Megatron molds, the tank becomes a cannon, which is perfect. But that's more of a luxury to me; the character-reference alone would be enough to make me buy it, trailer or no.

Edit: Oh, and yeah Nick, that's a great custom. Exactly the sort of thing I was picturing. It'll be awesome to see it with the "slime and an obnoxious name".

but i'd really prefer toxitron to be done with the original laser prime mold just for the trailer. i'd rather have the rts mold done up as scourge

I made the grabby hands because I want it. I said I'd take any other head on that toy painted up as anyone else, but now I'm not sure if I can settle for anything short of that little pile of excellence you've created there. Well done.

I'm largely on the side of RtS G2 Prime, but I do wonder if it might be possible to go in a different direction entirely, like using RtS Hailstorm/Mindset with a new head and recasting the "toxic" as him being a biowarfare psycho (or technowarfare, as it were).

I'm not sure I'd want another Toxitron: the Animated toy did the concept rather well, and without the trailer, it leaves you wanting. I'd love that Movie Megatron concept, but it's impossible.

If FunPub's going to make RtS G2 Prime into anything, I'd rather he was re-decoed as Laser Ultra Magnus, if anything. But that's me.
Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

Also, mouthed version, so they can paint some goop dripping from it.

I'm ambivalent about it, but I wouldn't object to a non-Animated version of Toxitron in the slightest, using RTS G2 Prime or not (though that seems the logical choice). A small part of me wishes they'd use the Armada Bendy Prime mold, however.

Finally got around to wrapping up my Toxitron. I've got a thread full of pictures over in Iacon.



Also, I realized I still need to throw his name on him, but imagine it accross his bumper. Unfortunately the molded detail on the tanker makes anything short of an actual lithograph impossible, but Toxitron will not be denied.
