Did I say that? I must have been joking.

And you say you have no sense of humor, Nevermore. ;)

@  Nevermore : (27 February 2020 - 09:07 PM)

Gonzo, start a thread in the main "Transformers Discussion" forum with that information in the title instead.

@  Sabrblade : (27 February 2020 - 08:33 PM)

Gonzo, please don't go spoiling things like that in the chat box.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 February 2020 - 05:53 PM)

Neat.

@  Darth Gonzo : (27 February 2020 - 05:53 PM)

Tarn is in Cyberverse.

@  Benbot : (27 February 2020 - 10:24 AM)

I really don't like that guy. Show the toys, not your face. I'm tired of looking at him.

@  RCX : (27 February 2020 - 09:25 AM)

Toy Galaxy is excellent.

@  Benbot : (27 February 2020 - 09:03 AM)

I think you'll be save in Greenland.

@  CORVUS : (27 February 2020 - 01:12 AM)

Toy Galaxy is my favorite overall toy-related channel on YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (26 February 2020 - 11:29 PM)

Last year's coverage via Toy YouTubers was brilliant. However, since YouTube's new (unfortunately necessary) guidelines the companies barely invited any of them back, so all we get is super-popular collector's info.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 February 2020 - 09:19 PM)

If it weren't for Toy Galaxy's coverage video, I would not have known about the Defenders of the Earth figures. New toys of Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician? In 2020? I would have said you were smoking something strong.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:32 PM)

So the question is... has Madagascar closed down all its ports yet?

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:31 PM)

A couple that got infected attended a Carnival event with over 300 people in attendance.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

So the Corona virus keeps getting closer to where I live. Several confirmed cases in my federal state already.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 February 2020 - 02:20 PM)

Man, only having collector sites to get Toy Fair news from sucks. Did you know there is a 4" line of kids figures for the new Avengers game coming?

@  Dekafox : (26 February 2020 - 11:54 AM)

Since Omega already exists they could name it Auntie

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:07 AM)

Oh, and one last Titan,provided we can fudge things a bit to include a character from Transformers: Animated; how about something at least resembling TF:A Omega Supreme?

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:05 AM)

How about they find a way to make a mold they can use for both Broadside and Tidal Wave?

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 February 2020 - 02:13 AM)

Optimus Maximus, the mysterious titan of the Arisen, also Iaconus from Cyberverse.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

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)

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy....

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

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

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 February 2020 - 08:47 PM)

@Dekafox, no DTP, but they DO have LILY Cat ;)

@  CORVUS : (21 February 2020 - 08:46 PM)

For me, it's "chocolate therapy".

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 08:32 PM)

Tonight dough owns my soul.

@  CORVUS : (21 February 2020 - 07:28 PM)

Stupid, delicious Ben & Jerry's.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 06:42 PM)

Ahh. I remember watching Bubblegum Crisis 2020 or whatever.

@  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)

BGC?

@  Bass X0 : (21 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Enjoy the fudgy icing of this Hostess Cup Cake!

@  Telly : (21 February 2020 - 02:31 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.

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.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

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.

She's getting another new name?
(I hope to shit she's in the Ultimates/late Mighty Avengers design. Ultimates Monica > Nextwave Monica > classic Avengers Monica >>>> Greg Land short-hair Monica.)
