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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 February 2020 - 01:33 PM)

@  Vexwing : (22 February 2020 - 03:26 AM)

I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

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

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 05:38 PM)

harlock is on tubi as well. not dubbed though :(

@  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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 February 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Oh boy, here we go.

@  ▲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.

What's more strange is that it was argued for by ToyBiz, who were Marvel's own toy division.

I'm pretty bummed those aren't 4-inch. I would have loved to have DH and DH2 in the same scale.

-ZacWilliam, heh, actually if they'd only reversed who was at each size that might have worked for scale too.

I was hoping for a classic Death's Head in the 6-inch line so I could stand him with the other TFs on my shelf. I've got the 4-inch one there now, and it's okay, but I want one closer to them in scale.

 

Love that Warlock though. Looking forward to putting him with the other Guardians on my cosmic shelf.

There's a leaked listing of the Spider-Man Homecoming wave somewhere out there.  Two unrevealed movie tie-in figures, Tombstone, Cosmic Spidey, Carrion (listed as "Dead Meat"), and a Beetle (but WHICH ONE???  Probably one of Jenkins' armours.)

 

Also, I'd like to transfer my disgust in the Titans Return thread for the Death's Head 2 here as well.  Ahem.  GODDAMMIT HASBRO!!!

Yeah, he's not terrible on the shelf (he's still bigger than the little Human Alliance figures I use as normal humans on the shelf), but he's just not as big as I'd like him to be compared to the TFs.

That finally sounds like a Spider-man wave I have very little interest in. Aside from maybe the cosmic Spidey.

No clue when I'm going to be able to afford the last few waves, but at least that'll be a break.

That rumored Homecoming wave sounds great. I'm all about Carrion, Tombstone, and a new Moon Knight. And assuming one of the two movie characters if the film's villain, I imagine I'll want him as well.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that.  It probably isn't, but I'd love a "Mr. Knight" Ellis version of him.

Death's Head 4" just happened to run into The Doctor a second time. And got compressed again.

 

He doesn't look too bad, as I said. The perspective here is a bit off given that he's standing in the front, but he's just a bit shorter than Arcee when standing directly beside her. It's workable, especially with the humans so small.

 

Crappy picture follows...

My local Walmarts have begun stocking the Space Venom wave.  I can't remember the last time I actually completed a ML Build-a-Figure, but alas, Space Venom is mine.

 

Not sure if I'm going to keep Electro and Hobgoblin, though.  I don't really collect Spider-Man's rogues anymore.  Hobgoblin is a really nice, figure, though.

I got an email notifying me that my Marvel Unlimited Plus subscription is going to be renewed next month, so I decided to check if the 2016/2017 figure has been revealed yet.

 

Turns out it's Captain Marvel with less color.

 

A lot less exciting than Rescue.

So there's a good chance I'm going to cancel the subscription. I haven't done nearly as much reading as I wanted to this year. Haven't even been in enough of a comics-reading to mood to read the current stuff I'm buying.

 

Also I had deleted the app a couple months ago for some temporary space, but I can't redownload it because it's apparently now incompatible with my tablet.
