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.

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

@  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)

@  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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 February 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Oh boy, here we go.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2020 - 10:26 PM)

Vegan meat needs bacon

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

She's getting another new name?

 

 

Yeah, kinda hoping that's not the case unless it means she retains her current look with the black coat.

Really happy to see Death's Head II get a toy, but pretty bummed out by the sculpt and design.

Yeah he's 90s as heck in some terrible ways but he was also drawn to look pretty awesome in that first miniseries.

ZacWilliam, this toy, especially the face, doesn't capture that from what I see.

This. This is all I wanted in life.
(well, technically I was hoping that She-Hulk would have her Mighty Avengers outfit and that Loki would be the Agent of Asgard version, but that was always a long shot)

And oh hey:

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.

Looks like I was right.
Anyway. Boom-Boom, Machine Man and the Captain when?

Hasbro really loves their Peters. Look at all those red and blue Spider-mans in the stock photos.

 

Definitely excited by A-force and Thor.

Although hopefully the capes on those Asgardian ladies don't have much trouble staying on.

 

I have next to zero interest in the 12 inch figures, but if I were to deep my toe into that line it would probably be because of that Black Suit Spider-man.

First post I've ever liked, then un-liked so that I could like it again.

I'm so happy that this set is happening. I've wondered even recently why I kept my tiny tea set. But now I know, it was for her.

Now that I think about it, I would have liked/expected to see Chavez in this set as well. Too toydrunk to mind, though.

Marverlousnews/toynewi said Squirrel Girl was in the set in their panel report.

I'm not surprised they got something wrong, but I do wonder what made them think that.

Maybe they mistook Elsa for Doreen at a glance.

 

edit:

Oh right, Revoltech Spider-Gwen.

That might be the first of the Revoltech spiders I'm interested in.

Don't need another Spider-man, and while the Venom is cool it's not quit ideal for me.

I feel like I have such terrible luck with Marvel Legends. :doh Solidly-stuck joints, badly-warped limbs out-of-package... It seems like virtually every figure I buy has at least one major problem that affects its full functionality, and my previous attempts to use common tricks to fix them (particularly putting the figure in the freezer to try and free up stuck joints) have failed more often than not. The last one I tried it on, the white outfit Iron Fist, resulted in me shearing the thigh swivel peg right off. :( And now, the Astral Form Doctor Strange I got has the same feel in its stuck joint: turning the stuck joint feels like I'm already twisting the peg inside, and I'd rather not risk the freezer trick anymore.

 

It's gotten to the point that I'm wondering if Hasbro thought "the hardcore collectors won't take them out of the box anyway," and decided to just make them look good while in-package and not actually work when posed outside. Even some of the Transformers I've gotten suffer from the occasional debilitating defect, necessitating an exchange - or a refund, if they don't have another one.

That's unfortunate, I've seen similar accounts reported with some of the more recent stuff. I've been exceptionally lucky with mine, sounds like, because I've never had any QC issues with any Legends figure.

 

Most of the other figures I wanted from the wave are on pre-order, but I bought a Star Lord at Walgreens to tide me over until then!

Yeah, I've heard that hot water is usually better. Removes excess mold release residue too.

It's not impossible that location affects things since products are subject to various temperature changes during transit.

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.
