i didnt. not until '83 anyway :thumbsup

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 01:00 AM)

Yeah, that was a hard one to take. So many nerds from '77 on must've grown up having a crush on her

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:34 AM)

I mean, I knew it was coming, but just hearing Carrie say "May the Force be with you" hurt :(

They always save the saddest deaths for last in the "in memoriam" sequence.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:30 AM)

I am glad they made the right choice with Best Animated, even if it was a tough call this year.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:28 AM)

I remember him from the old days on Breaker High airing on YTV

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:28 AM)

Also, Ryan Gosling. Ugh, go #### yourself Ryan Gosling, with your perfect bone structure

@  NotVeryKnightly : (27 February 2017 - 12:26 AM)

Since there's way more nominees than winners in every category that's not exactly unusual.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:25 AM)

Even then, I think it lost more nominations than it won.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:24 AM)

I think the reason La La Land won so many awards is because it was basically Hollywood stroking its own ego

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:20 AM)

Kinda glad. I like Emma Stone, but for whatever reason I can't stand that movie. I'm surprised it didn't win though, as it was typical Oscar bait

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:19 AM)

This is just goddamn surreal.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:19 AM)

Holy shit. It had the second-most nominations of any movie, and La La Land just lost Best Picture.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:11 AM)

"Look where I've been, I make everything happen! Look at that mean Mini Maui just tikkity tappin'! Ha ha ha ha HA HA HA HEY!"

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:10 AM)

Yeah, same. "You're Welcome" is honestly the best song in the movie.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:06 AM)

I liked the Moana song, though personally I enjoyed You're Welcome a little bit more because of the humor.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:04 AM)

Ah, well. As much as him not getting an Oscar hurts, Lin-Manuel has a shitload of awards already, so missing out on one isn't too bad. The guy managed to hit the jackpot with the Tonys for Hamilton and win a Grammy for it and get an Emmy... Somewhere. Don't know where he got the Emmy.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:02 AM)

@NVK: I realize that, but I still don't like that a terrible Zak Snyder film managed to even get an award.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:00 AM)

Look, I can understand The Force Awakens not getting a single award. Hell, I can even understand why Transformers lost to The Golden Compass.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (27 February 2017 - 12:00 AM)

But Moana and Suicide Squad weren't nominated for the same things.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 11:47 PM)

We officially live in a world where a film involving Zak Snyder is apparently more deserving of an award than Lin-Manuel Miranda.

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 February 2017 - 10:58 PM)

I was pretty shocked Star Trek Beyond lost out in Best Makeup to Suicide Squad. Killer Croc looked good, but Trek had a lot of good alien makeup

@  Maruten : (26 February 2017 - 10:36 PM)

I was surprised to see that everyone's so into La La Land. On paper it seems right up my alley, but I thought it was pretty... meh.

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 February 2017 - 09:38 PM)

I read that as EPCOT status

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 09:26 PM)

I have a sinking feeling La La Land is going to win Best Song and keep Lin-Manuel Miranda from achieving EGOT status.

@  Echowarrior : (26 February 2017 - 07:12 PM)

Our Hydra is better than Marvel's Hydra. Just saying.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 07:05 PM)

@  TriBlurr : (26 February 2017 - 07:03 PM)

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 06:22 PM)

Don't we still have Hydra?

@  Verno : (26 February 2017 - 06:10 PM)

@  Confuzor : (26 February 2017 - 06:01 PM)

I got my MP Primal pretty quickly, but I haven't sent the payment confirmation on my Cheetor yet

@  Paladin : (26 February 2017 - 05:32 PM)

he's been out what, 3 days? Most shipping methods aren't THAT fast...

@  Verno : (26 February 2017 - 04:52 PM)

Does anyone have MP Cheetor in hand yet?

I remember watching Doug all the time as a kid, but I watch it now and I don't at all see the appeal. *shrug* On the plus side, it added the word "nematode" to my vocabulary.

@  Paladin : (26 February 2017 - 10:47 AM)

@  Rycochet : (26 February 2017 - 09:08 AM)

90s Nicktoons were awful.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 08:16 AM)

Yeah, I'd get really pumped to watch it and the other Nicktoons.

@  lastmaximal : (26 February 2017 - 08:04 AM)

You digdug?

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:40 AM)

Hate watching stuff like that.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:40 AM)

Also, I digged Doug. Mostly for the ancillary characters, though. Doug himself is one of those characters who gets into situations that make YOU feel embarrassd. Like Fred Savage on The Wonder Years.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:39 AM)

@PlutoniumBoss *Pinwheel fistbump*

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I remember Today's Special. The Toronto part was something of a revelation from my wife and her family when I came here.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 02:34 AM)

In hindsight, I'm pretty sure Miss Frizzle was a Time Lord.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 02:34 AM)

I got into science because of Magic School Bus.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 February 2017 - 11:25 PM)

Anyone else remember Puttnam's Prairie Emporium? Not sure if it aired outside Canada

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 February 2017 - 11:21 PM)

Today's Special was a favourite of mine. Some of it was actually filmed at a department store here in Toronto

@  PlutoniumBoss : (25 February 2017 - 10:34 PM)

Eureka! and Start Here were awesome too.

@  The Doctor Who : (25 February 2017 - 09:59 PM)

I remember watching Newton's Apple on PBS. That's where I learned about thermal insulation layers and why things change temperature faster when you blow on them.

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.

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.
