@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 01:33 PM)

So, welcome to all retail, everywhere.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Oh, and Greenpeace also conducted a protest at a German Amazon facility, to protest against Amazon's practice of throwing customer returns in the trash.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Right, because with Amazon, it's just the employees that have to step in dog shit while having no space to breathe.[/slightexaggeration]

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 July 2019 - 01:03 PM)

At least I can use Amazon without losing the ability to breath or step in dog shit.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:58 PM)

Considering that Amazon is the new Walmart...

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

All of my best wishes go out to the brave women and men who have the balls (and ovaries) to go on strike at an Amazon facility in the US.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:38 PM)

Speaking of. Not only are we in Germany on strike today, but so is the fulfillment center in Shakopee, Minnesota!

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 12:36 PM)

Overnight delivery is the right of all sentient beings.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:34 PM)

(and is it sexist of me to assume that a character named "Amazon Prime" would be feminine?)

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:34 PM)

Whenever she was summoned, she would arrive the next day?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (15 July 2019 - 12:32 PM)

The Scioli and Barber TF vs Joe series mentioned an Amazon Prime.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:22 PM)

Meanwhile I'm wondering why no one's come up with a fan character named "Amazon Prime". I mean, today IS her special day...

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 11:20 AM)

The Wallet-Eater.

Ssshh, you'll get us both "dealt with".

@  RichardT1977 : (14 July 2019 - 07:28 PM)

No, but I did *read* it from you...

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 03:06 PM)

The first real long-term space outposts belong to the Illuminati, but you didn't hear that from me.

@  RichardT1977 : (14 July 2019 - 02:50 PM)

Er, in SF I mean.

@  RichardT1977 : (14 July 2019 - 02:50 PM)

Yeah, the first long-term manned space outposts have traditionally been mining colonies and the like.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 12:19 PM)

Okay, but......do they have to be willing to be sent up?

@  Rycochet : (14 July 2019 - 11:10 AM)

A king isn't a king without subjects.

@  Rycochet : (14 July 2019 - 11:09 AM)

The rich will never flee to space until there's enough an underclass up there so they have someone to do all the jobs they won't. Same reason seasteading never takes off.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 10:45 AM)

Do we have to let them come back?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 July 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Well, it's only going to be the ultra-rich who are able to go for the first couple decades at least, so I doubt anyone's going to care much

@  Nevermore : (14 July 2019 - 10:32 AM)

They could be standing on the surface of the moon, insist they're in the middle of a giant set, and take off their helmet to "prove" it.

@  Nevermore : (14 July 2019 - 10:31 AM)

Assuming these are genuinely convinced conspiracy morons and not just internet trolls, I would assume "not a lot".

@  Nevermore : (14 July 2019 - 10:31 AM)

I wonder how all these recent private and international space travel programs are going to affect those craziacs who insist that the Earth is flat/the moon landing was forged/outer space isn't real etc.

Have you considered a trapdoor spike pit?

@  unluckiness : (14 July 2019 - 09:17 AM)

It's not the worst gift but not evryone may want one given rising fuel prices.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2019 - 08:22 AM)

Is a fire pit too literal for a house warming gift?

@  Noideaforaname : (14 July 2019 - 07:43 AM)

Welp, just realized everyone's been talking about Halle BAILEY this week, not BERRY. (so that's why i haven't been seeing CatFishWoman memes...)

@  MEDdMI : (14 July 2019 - 07:08 AM)

Oh, sounds like fun.I wonder if I have a decent mic lying around.

@  Pinkcolliebot : (13 July 2019 - 07:26 PM)

Casting call for TF Roll Out Shorts! https://www.behindth...y/casting-call/

@  Kalidor : (13 July 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Talking about the show in chat is absolutely fine - posting spoilers on anything that's current season isn't tho

@  Arazyr : (13 July 2019 - 07:05 AM)

Yeah, I'm a season or so behind, so I would definitely appreciate no spoilers. 8^)

@  Sabrblade : (12 July 2019 - 10:21 PM)

Still, though, yeah, we do have a thread for the show. Best to use it.

@  Sabrblade : (12 July 2019 - 10:20 PM)

I think Nevermore once said he was a few episodes behind, so I don't think he's talking about tonight's new episode.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 July 2019 - 09:53 PM)

Yeah, you realize we have a designated thread for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., right?

@  MEDdMI : (12 July 2019 - 09:35 PM)

Not that I care about the show, but I'd be pretty annoyed about spoilers there. Please post it in a thread.

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 06:05 PM)

Okay, this is getting ridiculous. The opening of the episode was a deliberate play with clichés, but unfortunately, the rest of the episode that's played straight is also riddled with them...

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:45 PM)

Also, why are they so pissed that Deke built a start-up company? What would they have preferred - him continuing being a freeloader?

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:44 PM)

But now everyone keeps picking up the idiot ball. Geez.

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:43 PM)

That's what I always loved about the show - creative ways to play with tropes and subvert them by making the characters smarter than your typical fictional character doofus.

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:43 PM)

Why is everyone suddenly genre-blind?

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Wasn't it just last season when Mack was so super-genre-savvy that he insisted on NOT SPLITTING UP?

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:42 PM)

And again, too many characters acting like idiots.

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:41 PM)

Seriously, Agents of SHIELD? Now you're straight ripping off "Alien"?

It was easier for me since I didn't start collecting until they switched to the movie-focused Infinite format, although I have picked up some older stuff, and SDCC exclusives are too much of a pain for me to bother with.

 

Also, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw another release of this Gamora down the line, but in her GotG uniform colors.

Saddness is going to TRU this morning and seeing a Agents of SHIELD special set (Coulson, Fury, Hill) as well as all the pieces to Thanos (with Hellcat instead of Spider Woman) and not having the money for all of it. At least picked up the new AoU Cap figure as he's my fav though i kinda wished I had picked up Hulk as well. No luck with finding an Agent Venom (at least one in a less then decimated box) but was able to find an Anti-Venom so at least happy bout that. It also saddens me going to Target (and apparently Meijrs as well) and seeing a Infinite Legends figure for $19.99 but a 3.75" figure is $12.99 WTH? I know gas cost and other factors apply but man, that is nuts.

 

Still trying to decide if I wanna open my other SWitch Legend or return it. Managed to find (slightly off topic) the Avengers Forever issues I needed at Half Price Books (already have #1 & 2) as well as a copy of the new Rage of Ultron OGN for half price :D, even grabbed a AoU Quicksilver and Nick Fury Heroclix from Target. I won't really need the BAF part that comes with Anti-Venom so if anyone needs it, give a holler. That War Machine is simple yet it works well IMO. Sadly was never much a fan of Iron Patriot-Machine so going back to WMachine makes me happy. The GotG Legends set looks nice too but as much as I loved DnAs run in the comics I've transitioned to the movie style characters now.

 

Big Show: That is an awesome Mimic mod u r doing. He was always one of my favorite characters in Exiles and his ending always saddend me. Kinda hoping with Secret Wars getting ready to start we might somehow see the original team pop up like only they can do. :)

Thanks for the link! Preordered.

 

Weird how they seem to have changed Drax's deco. And removable hands too; presumably so he can hold his knives better?

Well, he's apparently a combination of Radioactive Man and movie Drax, so it's a completely new deco.

The only character there that's completely the same mold as a previous version of themselves is Star-Lord, but even he has differently colored boots.

Ah, I thought he looked a little beefier. Probably a better choice than that old Steve Rogers body.

For anyone getting the 2.5, the cycle that is in Captain Americas tower set is not compatible with the Quinjet (I initially thought it was a reapint but its a retool or new mold)...despite the fact they have the same kind of launch mechanism. I didnt really find anything to say either way to be honest.

Shamelessly plugging a Kickstarter I hope succeeds here, but if anyone wants to add female SHIELD and Hydra figures to their MU lines, the Legion XIV Kickstarter for a 1:18-compatible military female base figure is now featuring SHIELD and Hydra decos being offered as stretch goals:

A productive run to Target today. I'm aware the figures are pure shit, but they do make good army builders/minions/chronies.

Wow, those look like Happy Meal toys.  I saw that TRU has some exclusive repaints of Fury/Ironman and Widow/Cap.  The Widow one looks pretty good with the blue highlights, but since I already have that mould from the last time it was released, it was an easy pass.

I agree that they're far, FAR from ideal but those two Ultrons look great as drones flanking the proper MU one.

I'm not sure if you are saying he is slightly too big based on just being a big toy, or based on appearances in the movie.  From what I can tell, the ML figures is undersized.  Based on some screenshots I am looking at, this figure is just about the right height.  The other team members should come up to Hulk's abdomen area when everyone is standing up straight (ish).

Looking at the comparison pics in the review I watched, he seemed big even for the cinematic Hulk. That's most likely just my tastes. I am the guy who has a 5-inch movie Hulk standing among my Marvel Universe display after all. :D

They don't make it easy to get a good bead on his height compared to the others.  Hulk is almost always in the background of any group shot, understandably.
