Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

Vegan meat needs bacon

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 03:52 PM)

Ask bing. It'll be a FAR more effective answer.

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Google, how do I get those durned kids off my lawn?

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Modern problems require modern solutions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

Nothing but Wolvies, Cyclops, and Stryfes at my local TRU as well. The only reason I even have a Storm is thanks to Onyx Minor. But my Jubilee remains armless because I never found a Magneto. :(

So, grain of salt and everything, but there's a rumored 3rd wave of Avengers Legends that would be a Walgreens exclusive.

Hmm. Interesting. I have no interest, but I understand seeing a "heavy hitter" in each wave.

 

Also, the Odin wave seems to be making its way across the states. An eBay listing for Iron Fist originated from Illinois.

Of that lineup, Iron Man and Strange appeal to me. I wonder what Marvel Hero Number One is.


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible.

Marvel Hero Number One? We're getting a Jim Hammond Human Torch figure? :)

 

War Machine interests me. Doctor Strange will depend heavily on the execution.

A lot of his costumes don't seem very action figure friendly.

I want a current Jim Hammond: Agent of Shield figure.

Strange's current Black/Red look would be my best bet, bonus points if he comes with a bonus Black Priest head.

Just realized that War Machine might be the unreleased repaint of the movie Iron Patriot figure instead of a new comic-based War Machine.

If that's the case I would rather  have the Rescue that was shown at the same time.

Picked up a cheap ML10 X-Factor Cyclops off eBay, which arrived today. Just put it in the display case and what do I see at the back of the shelf? Yep, I already own it. I now remember it's ML12 Bishop variant I nevee got. This was a cheap mistake, but an annoying one, as it's a terrible figure with an inacurrate deco (stripes are way too thin conpared to any comic appearance).

I hate when this happens.

It's really weird seeing Agent Venom get one of those "Spider-man is riding a vehicle for some reason" toys.

Although more appropriate because he/they, at least in the comics, did a lot of cross-country business.

I just found the new Legends at Target, so they're out there. Sadly I missed my Captain Marvel due to scalpers but I did score me a Sentry and my god does he look way better than the old one.

EDIT: Screw it. just ordered the guys available on the site. For $19.99 and free shipping, it was worth it to not have to hunt. With Hawkeye already on the way, the hunt is down to Thor and Scarlet Witch.

Thanks, though. :)

So my wife's former coworker let me know they had a truck coming in last night at TRU. Because she loves me and enables my hobby/sickness, my lovely wife was at TRU at opening and now has the last 2 Legends I needed from this wave in her hot little hands (Thor and Scarlet Witch). The downside is that now I get to wait until my birthday at the end of the month for ALL of the wave. :D
 

Needless to say, I'm very excited!
