I'll agree with you on that.

I fugured

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:41 PM)

I can't think of any instance where sanitizing a film is a good thing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 06:42 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 May 2020 - 06:39 PM)

*grabs popcorn*

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 12:49 PM)

*watching everyone argue* O^O

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:30 PM)

Well, my main point is that it will speed up the system migration so I have A) less system downtime because there are fewer files to transfer before the new system can be up and running and B) it reduces the risk of something going wrong during the system migration.

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.

Rescue becoming a subscription-exclusive was pretty painful for me - I wanted her, but not to the point of signing up for something I'd rarely use/read. :( Thankfully this new exclusive is an uninteresting one; I never did like the mohawk look.

CBR reveals the Marvel Legends movie Vulture:
http://www.cbr.com/e...coming-vulture/

Figure is part of the assortment, but the wings are the BAF.

Has any other info on this wave come out? I'm gonna guess that we'd get movie Spider-Man, Iron Man, and 3 comic figures.

Not really interested in the movie figures. At least Star-Lord doesn't come with a BAF piece.

Even if I have to end up with a movie Star-lord at some point I think I'd want it to be a different one.

 

Hmm.. I wonder if there's going to be another wave, or if the rest of the team(2 1/2 figures+accessory Groot?) are going to be in a boxset or something.

After completing Space Venom, I slipped back into buying ML more steadily and completed Juggernaut and Rhino this week.

I really didn't need to complete Juggernaut since I have the cooler Marvel Select version, but the added articulation for this one makes it more fun to mess around with in a variety of poses.  I'll put him on an Excalibur shelf or something and leave MS Juggernaut on the Brotherhood shelf.

 

Rhino... wow.  I really like this BAF, and I have never really given a rat's ass about Rhino, despite my general affinity for Spidey's rogues' gallery.

I even remember when I got the BAF head a year ago thinking that it was silly looking (the less-masked/crazy-eyes one).

Umm yeah, it's glorious when you add it to the whole figure.

 

Sure, I ended up with booby figures like White Tiger, Havok, and Iceman, but since Amazon had them on the cheap, I'm not terribly upset over buying them solely for the BAF pieces.

What was there to cave on? The Leia fracas wasn't completely without merit being that was her first, and for a long time only, representation at that scale. I don't think Angela had multiple different outfits throughout two prior movies. ;) :D

Yeah, that Leia was not only the first Leia figure in Black Series, she was also the only female figure in the line for 2 years/9 waves.

 

Also, Angela has gotten a few new outfits since becoming a Marvel character. If they want to keep pushing her I wouldn't be surprised if we saw them in plastic form eventually.

Marvel Select Juggernaut is amazing. You can kill somebody by bludgeoning them to death with that figure.

You know, I'm a little surprised that Monica Rambeau has never got any toys or merchandise in any form. She's never been that popular, but especially since Nextwave she's been the very definition of a cult favourite.

 

I guess it's just one more obstacle to me assembling the Nextwave Squad on my shelves. We can probably reasonably expect Elsa to get one in the next few years, given that Marvel seems to want to make her A Thing (chances are, she's getting a series after Monsters Unleashed), and Monica might get one since she's around on the Ultimates. But Boom-Boom is unlikely at best, we're hardly likely to get ANOTHER Machine Man just for the right head and the jacket, and the only way we'd ever get the Captain is to complete the set. Ah, well.

I totally get the legitimate complaints about Slave Leia. Its just that one alpha male parent that had fame for five minutes because he got bent out of shape about Slave Leia without even being apparently familiar with Star Wars.

He ruined the legitimate part of complaints. I just dont want him getting another five on Angela's account.

Having given it some thought, I've determined that the ideal Marvel Legends wave would include Moon Girl and the entirety of Nextwave, and have Devil Dinosaur as the Build-A-Figure. With alternate parts, so you can build it as either the regular Devil Dinosaur or the smoking-jacket-wearing Nextwave one.

 

So, something like:

  • Spectrum/Monica Rambeau - left leg
  • Machine Man - lower torso (Nextwave)
  • Elsa Bloodstone - head
  • Boom Boom - tail
  • The Captain - upper torso (Nextwave)
  • Moon Girl - upper torso (normal)

And, uh... let's go with...

  • Domino - lower torso (normal)
  • Miss America - right leg

Perfection.

...And now I'm really sad this doesn't exist.
