I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

@  Rhinox42 : (21 February 2020 - 01:19 PM)

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.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

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.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2020 - 10:26 PM)

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.

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 saw those this weekend, minus the Witch and including War Machine. The figures are at best Happy Meal toys, and that's sad considering what we just had here recently with Thor Dark World and Cap Winter Soldier. I understand the cost involved, materials, labor to make, and other factors all come in before the figures hit stores but can someone explain how we went from MU, Marvel 3.75" Infinite, and the previously mentioned movie figures (as well as Avengers) to the Iron Man 3 and these bad attempts at pleasing the fanbase? Really sad to see some decent characters yet between the size, articulation, and paint jobs on a lot of them lately, ain't worth squat. I would have liked to have had a couple Ultrons and Iron Legions to backup MU Ultron. Sadly I think even he would wonder WTF.

May be old news, but a number of the Walmarts here in Houston got a bunch of the Cpt Marvel/Scarlett Witch wave of Legends in. One even had a display set up in the main aisle by toys.

BBTS has the Guardians boxset up for pre-order.

I don't know if it's exclusive to them as well, or if they're just buying some from EE.

 

That cloak thing Gamora has is really turning me off of this set. 

 

edit: I didn't notice it before, but in the in-box pic it looks like she has a normal plastic cape as well.

Hmm...Wish I noticed that before EE's coupon code expired.

I guess Hasbro was originally looking to shop this set out to mass market (probably TRU following up on the All New X-Men box set), or else they probably wouldn't have bothered covering Gamora up like that (see SDCC Satana), both on the package photos, and with the way the figure is packaged.

I'd assume the cloak-thing could just be taken off and tossed in a bin.

 

Have we even seen whether she has her comic ahem "uniform" underneath it?

I think Gamora, in the comics at least, looks kind of weird without any sort of cape or cloak, so if she only had that soft-goods thing I wouldn't be able to get rid of it.

 

The colors and art make me assume they're going for a pre-GotG look. It looks like what she wore around the time of Annihilation, but I'm not really an expert on Gamora.

 

edit:Looks like she wore something like that after the main modern Guardians book as well.

Although I remember reading that issue and thinking the continuity was a little weird.

When the box was first revealed, with cardboard cutouts in place of the figures inside, I'm pretty sure the picture was of Gamora in her sling bikini.  And the boxart for this set does depict her in that costume as well, just mostly hidden by her cloak so you only see her cleavage, and not, well, everything else.

I just got my Hobgoblin Spider-man wave in the mail.

Only paint problems is that Spider-man has a couple of scuffs, and Daredevil has a spot on his nose.

Stuff that doesn't bother me much.

 

I'm liking Anti-Venom more than I thought he would. Not perfect, general proportions could be better including the thickness of his spider, but he looks better than he did in pictures.

 

The packaging seems to not have treated the Spider-ladies well. Both of them have slight curves to their legs, and also Mayday has a stiff elbow joint.

What's the solution for that stuff? Boiling water? A hairdryer?

 

Hobgoblin is cool, but I have not yet been able to plug his head on securely. The hood keep getting in the way.

Also wish his wings were articulated in some way. I don't remember if they were at all in the comics.

 

 

Other than I have my standard complaints for Marvel Legends, specifically those of the Spider flavor.

More of them should come with alternate hands, and they should have made a Spider-girl body that was as good as the Spider-man body considering how many character use it. Also, the Spider-man body itself still seems like it could be better. I'm having trouble with crouching poses.

The Ant-Man Legends wave is up for preorder at Amazon, TRU.com, and BBTS.

 

And BBTS also has the Hulkbuster and Rhino BAF waves up.

So I noticed a miss-assembly on my Anti-Venom after that last post.

His lower torso is backwards. He has abs on his back, and I'm fine with it.

I actually like the smoother stomach, and the only real negative is that there's slightly more resistance bending him forward than backwards.

 

 

The Ant-Man Legends wave is up for preorder at Amazon, TRU.com, and BBTS.

 

And BBTS also has the Hulkbuster and Rhino BAF waves up.

 

Hmm, Wasp and Movie Ant-man have separate pre-orders.

The villains are cool for people that have a connection with them, but I don't, so I may just get those two.

 

I'm all about the Rhino wave though.

....bwah?!?!?!

 

Awesome.

 

In other awesome-news, I finally found an untouched wave of Spider-Man legends so Spider-Reilly-Girl and Spider-Man Classic are now mine.

 

I would have picked up Daredevil, but he looked to have some funkiness going on with his torso joint.  He was trying to chest-bump me through the packaging.  Sorry, bromigo DD, I'll have to pick you up later.

 

EDIT:  Got my Spider-Family setup complete.

IMG_5576.jpg

 

Having Reilly-Girl makes me realise how badly we really need a new Ben Reilly - that deco is nowhere near as good what Hasbro can do now.  Also, I really need to put on Predaking's arm.

Between Mayday and classic Scarlet Spider I don't think I'm going to have much of a need for a Sensational Spider-man, but I wouldn't say no to it.

The more spiders the better. Give them all to me.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.
