Is that why I found a Yamask in the cereal box?

@  Paladin : (29 May 2017 - 06:29 PM)

taste may vary from person to person.

@  Telly : (29 May 2017 - 06:03 PM)

soylent green toast crunch yummy yummy!

@  D Immortalis : (29 May 2017 - 05:47 PM)

since were pretty sure he ate the other bakers, i figure kids love it because it tastes like people...PEOPLE!

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 May 2017 - 04:07 PM)

But have you sighted why kids love the sweet taste of Cinnamon Toast Crunchâ„¢?

@  RichardT1977 : (29 May 2017 - 03:14 PM)

BTW: added a sighting to my recent TR Deluxe Wave 4 post (edited instead of double-posted).

@  Bass X0 : (28 May 2017 - 02:59 PM)

Back in my day, I called them "Mini-Spies".

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 02:06 PM)

Think about the implications of it though, robots in disguise themselves infiltrated and paranoid by the recent shifts in the status quo.

@  unluckiness : (28 May 2017 - 07:47 AM)

I'm kinda glad. A couple tie-in stories aside, Secret Invasion was a mess.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 07:23 AM)

Almost makes you wonder if some of the aborted Micronauts relaunch concept didn't slip in...

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 07:20 AM)

Titan Masters could quite easily have been Transformers: Secret invasion, the return of the Mini-cons/Stentarians but noooooo, it had to be whatever the pit it is.

TMM, free shipping

@  unluckiness : (27 May 2017 - 07:33 PM)

Even if it's just 4 bucks, people shouldn't be patronizing obvious scams.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 May 2017 - 05:37 PM)

What's the shipping price?

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 05:18 PM)

Yeah, but it's cheaper than all the Hong Kong sellers running at $65+

@  2017 : (27 May 2017 - 05:07 PM)

It sounds like a scam.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 04:32 PM)

I know, RIGHT?!

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 04:09 PM)

Hmmm,...do I take the chance on a copy of Gundam Breaker 3 Break Edition for $4 from a China seller with zero feedback?

Grax is only invisible when no one is looking at them. No idea what's wrong with your Xort.

@  Whirl Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 04:16 AM)

Titan Masters is filled with false advertising, Grax doesn't make any figure invisible and Xort doesn't do anything with gravity. Maybe they'll be in the Transformer toys of tomorrow which will be actual robots with AI.

@  Echowarrior : (26 May 2017 - 09:16 PM)

Thor was a great guy. Same as most of the Asgard. Loki was a jerk, though.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:21 PM)

I think thor was just too smart to NOT call us stupid next to him.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 07:18 PM)

Six of one, half a dozen of the other?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:17 PM)

I always interpreted that scene to mean that asgardians weren't capable of breaking down problems in the same way as humans.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 06:58 AM)

I mean, SG1 was a good show on balance. One of my favourite things was Thor admitting he found humans good to keep around because they so often came up with stupid ideas that nevertheless worked out.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Those episodes were 1969 and 2010.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Stargate sg1 was loosely based on the movie, it thrived on continuity it was impressive how old situations and solutions would come back in unexpected ways. Continuum had it's villain use the characters own solution in two previous episodes against them.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:39 AM)

And yeah, name is based on a part of my surname. Can't remember why I picked it. Lost to memories of the primordial early 2000s.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:37 AM)

Like how Abydos in the movie is in another galaxy on the far side of the universe, but Abydos in SG1 is the closest world to Earth (and that was the only reason the gate could still get there) and even getting to other galaxies was impossible with the normal gates.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:35 AM)

I was very tired when I said that, but what I meant was a lot of stuff that is in the original Stargate movie is contradicted a lot in Stargate SG1.

@  unluckiness : (26 May 2017 - 05:29 AM)

OBJECTION

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 May 2017 - 12:48 AM)

I remember a fanfic that had Swindle as Lawyer.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 10:08 PM)

No, I am referring to before Beast Wars: Uprising. I swear Swindle was a lawyer in a story before "A Brush With Infamy".

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:47 PM)

i cant get the link to work for the life of me. just go to the wiki and type "a brush with infamy" in the search box and itll come up

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:40 PM)

grr. check the post above this one. stupid non working link and i cant delete shouts...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

I swear I've read the story but now I forget which one it is.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

When has G1 Swindle been a lawyer before?

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2017 - 07:20 PM)

All I know about PennPenn is he's so good they named him twice.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (25 May 2017 - 07:02 PM)

Nope.. Pennpenn is actually a Prinny dood!

I hear that's a common issue actually. You're not the first person from whom I've heard that had an issue with that leg on the BaF.

Is it a case of the hole not being deep enough (something simple that could just be drilled out a bit), or something else?

http://news.toyark.c...s-hasbro-237663

Spider-Man Homecoming toys revealed.  Seems like Hasbro's moving into the "basic 6 inch" range they and Mattel started to do last year with more modestly articulated figures being sold alongside more articulated/detailed stuff in the Legends assortment.

 

Along with some stuff being revealed a few weeks back for Guardians of the Galaxy, Idle Hands got a look at a few more items.

http://idlehands1.bl...alaxy-vol2.html

I'm actually not seeing much specifically tied to the feature film itself aside from a music centric Star Lord figure.  Seems like Hasbro's banking on broad brand familiarity with the decent cartoon series (which is basically just an expansion of the movie itself).  The 6" figure line looks like it's finally going to add a few villains to the mix with Thanos, Nebula and Yondu.

 

I'm curious to see how this approach plays out in future lines.  Hopefully, this is move towards a less fragmented retail space.

Black Jynn would make for a VERY easy Rogue custom. Just cut off the vest, cut off the gun holster, repaint, and voila, you've got yourself a kick arse Mike Carey Legacy era Rogue.

I was excited about this until I realized it was Marvel Select and not Marvel Legends.  I try not to mix them into my collection because inevitably, ML will replace anything from MS I get, but I may have to get that Gamora and Rocket.  Hasbro's fixation on recycling the shitty "no articulation below the waist" Rocket mold does not give me hope we will ever get a good one.

 

Now, if we could just get a ML/MS Guardians Ben Grimm and a ML Guardians Kitty Pryde, we could "finish" the team.  Which means it will never happen.

 

I just made myself sad.  :D  :(

Yup, I pre-ordered the set with Gamora because I needed an articulated Rocket badly. I like the Legends ones that have been released well enough, but you can do so much more with this version. It's a shame that her figure being so recent probably casts Space Kitty in doubt.

 

Playing with fire made me want to dig out a few figures.

Aren't the MS figures a hair bigger than the ML? I guess it wouldn't matter for Rocket or Groot, but the regular size humans don't quite match up do they?

Yeah MS is more 7 inch scale over ML's 6 inch scale.

Also, these guys are all over the Walgreens in the DFW area.  Sadly, none of the newest Transformers were to be seen.  I needs me a Perceptor.

Here's a gallery of Hasbro's toyfair display.

Definitely the first spider-man wave where I have no desire to buy the whole thing.

Might just stick to Moon Knight and Cosmic Spidey.

 

That Gotg wave on the other hand is pretty tempting. Nice to finally have an articulated-below-the-waist Rocket.

 

The panel mentioned an A-Force box set. I hope we get to see that.

 

edit: The Fwoosh seems to have a pretty good rundown of what was announced.

A-Force Box set including (no figures shown, only comic art):
Pulse (Monica Rambeau)
Sif
Lady Loki
She-Hulk (new head)
Singularity
Elsa Bloodstone

 

Ooooooh, man.

Really digging the articulated Rocket figure they're showing. Mantis as a BAF is diabolical and it looks like I'll be picking up the entire wave.

My only disappointment with the Gotg stuff is that there's a movie Star-Lord in both waves, plus a two pack.

Because it looks like she's a 3.75 in which case she is totally going to be my modern Zarana custom.
