Because that line always cracks me up.

Well, at least Rita's still over-the-top, then...

@  MEDdMI : (30 March 2017 - 03:01 PM)

My friend said it tried to be inspiring and serious, but Rita was too campy and some of the messages might not be good for kids.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 March 2017 - 02:27 PM)

Anyone been to the theater to see Power Rangers? How is it?

@  Evac : (30 March 2017 - 02:24 PM)

Meh, even if it was a real continuation it wouldn't be the same without Tony Jay.

@  Rycochet : (30 March 2017 - 02:05 PM)

I don't want to see it be a trainwreck and crash and burn, because if it does that's probably it for ReBoot in any form for another decade or even longer. I'm just frustrated as ReBoot is one of the few things I like as much as Transformers.

@  Boomhauer : (30 March 2017 - 01:50 PM)

Fun fact: one of the actors for the main kids lied on his resume that he knew how to skate. He actualy doesn't. They had to choose between reshooting all his scenes with somebody else, getting a stunt or... just not having him skate at all.

@  Boomhauer : (30 March 2017 - 01:49 PM)

A close friend of mine has been working on that show for almost a year now. He's told me lots of things that filled me with excitement about how baffled the internet will be about it. It's gonna be a great trainwreck.

@  Rycochet : (30 March 2017 - 12:37 PM)

Given all the advancements in computing since the end of the original series, how they've spread through every facet of our lives they could tell some great stories within the existing ReBoot universe... Instead they're going for Power Rangers meets Tron.

@  Evac : (30 March 2017 - 12:21 PM)

That's... That's not ReBoot. That's... That's a bad Tron rip-off.

@  Rycochet : (30 March 2017 - 12:18 PM)

Well, the ReBoot revival sounds positively dire.

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 02:20 PM)

They were all in Tahiti that day, oh, and those days too, but they totally know someone who was there.

@  Broadside : (28 March 2017 - 01:37 PM)

Supposedly one of Mainframe's friends died during AHM, so presumably they were THERE, just, like, off-panel.

@  Verity Carlo : (28 March 2017 - 12:12 PM)

Additionally, Skywatch was rushed; it took them 23 years to learn how to control Ravage and Laserbeak, and they didn't even have a year to try and get the Dynobots under control.

@  Verity Carlo : (28 March 2017 - 11:58 AM)

Presumably dealing with other problems-The military was already routed to NYC before the blackout. And a counter terrorism unit is not something you have deal with an alien menace-it was Skywatch's purview, and even then, their problems started occurring only a year after Joes formation.

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 11:57 AM)

I think the only way I would buy a Gi-Joe comic would be if they were paired up with the monsterbots.

@  Evac : (28 March 2017 - 11:55 AM)

Nah, the Monsterbots had that covered.

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 11:43 AM)

Where were they when poop was hitting the fan with the Machination? You've got giant robot monsters battling in the open with an army of human controlled robot weapons... Maaaaybe that's the kind of thing they should have intervened in given how Skywatch failed.

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 March 2017 - 11:37 AM)

There was a major coordinated military presence outside New York during AHM. Where was the elite special task force?

@  Verity Carlo : (28 March 2017 - 11:24 AM)

Well there was also Soundwave disrupting all communications so no one could coordinate and also Starscream killed the President, and everyone else on Air Force One, who were probably some of the few who actually knew about their existence

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 11:21 AM)

If your country is being torn apart by aliens, you use every tool at your disposal and two years before AHM still puts them in existance around the time of the Machination who were very much the kind of problem they should have been dealing with.

@  Verity Carlo : (28 March 2017 - 11:10 AM)

IDW Joe was a top secret anti-terrorism unit made up of specialists. Not really "repelling an invasion force" material, plus they were formed two years before AHM

@  unluckiness : (28 March 2017 - 10:58 AM)

The Avengers were all Skrulls or something at the time

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 March 2017 - 10:45 AM)

It happened just like Spidey and SHIELD turned up in the original G1 comics.

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 March 2017 - 10:35 AM)

I try to forget that Avengers thing ever happened. I mean, aside from a throwaway line in Spotlight: Ramjet, it never comes up again anyway.

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 10:29 AM)

They would have been #1 on the Presidents speed dial to deal with the problems caused by Skywatch losing control of the Transformers in their care.

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 March 2017 - 10:28 AM)

Don't forget the Avengers. Megatron must have culled metahumans before AHM. Picture him personally tearing Spider-man in two.

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 March 2017 - 10:18 AM)

You'd think they would've intervened the time Megatron took over New York.

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 08:25 AM)

I really don't care for Gi-Joe being retconned into sharing the same universe as Transformers, There have been too many Joe free events in America for them to have existed all along.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (28 March 2017 - 07:53 AM)

And now he gets to be a member of hugging G.I. Joe.

@  unluckiness : (28 March 2017 - 06:46 AM)

I don't think anyone was ever supposed to like him

@  Broadside : (28 March 2017 - 06:36 AM)

To be fair, Costa at least had the self-awareness to turn Spike into a villain when he realised that nobody liked him.

@  Jalaguy : (28 March 2017 - 05:17 AM)

And the "lol idgaf" approach to making itself part of the existing universe is stupid. They could have pivoted to be more G1-cartoon-y without throwing so much worldbuilding out the window for no reason.

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?

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.

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.
