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 : (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)

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.

Eh, that's a decent selection. Spidey Noir is cool, Prowler is an underrated character, Gwenpool is great when she's written by Hastings, Mysterio's a classic. Not the most inspiring selection, but not terrible.

Yeah, I haven't actually ready her book yet, but Gwenpool seems surprisingly decent for what her concept is.

Both Prowler and Spider-punk are cool, and I wonder who the Spider-woman could be.

 

I'm surprised at the lack of symbiotes. Since they were in the last fan poll.

 

There's a new look at the second GotG Vol 2 wave.

Disappointed with Star-Lord having a BAF piece. They should treat him like the Wolverine of this segment of Legends.

I never realized how crappy DHIIs design was before this toy. I guess Sharp's art and the general pre-millennial haze of the 90s hid what a bland ugly look that was?

ZacWilliam, or has this toy really just presented it really poorly?

It really does seem like they spent a lot of time overdesigning his head, and then just kind of had no clue what to do for the rest of the body.

 

I avoided the toys based on the first movie, but the improved head sculpts are starting to tempt me.

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.

I found the Wal-Mart Ultimate Spiderman and Vulture pack yesterday:

Spidey

With the single pack Spidey:

Vulture:

I really like the new wing attachment method.  I gives a nice solid set of wings, and you can easily remove them:

Pardon the sad-looking webbing here.  I apparently threw away all my packaging wiring, and my head is hurting now, so I figured this would do...

I'm still not sold on Hasbro's new extra poseable shoulder joints.  They are great when the tolerances are good, but get one overly tight inner joint and the outer joint becomes a useless pain.

Decided to say "to hell" with it and bought a Cyke on eBay for $35 shipped. Getting tired of daily stops at Target, Walgreens, and TRU.

 

I enjoy "the hunt" as much as anyone, but this got ridiculous.

Nowadays, my version of the hunt consists of trying to get a preorder/order in at Amazon, BBTS, HTS or the Toys R Us website on the day the listing goes up.

 

Beyond that, hunting for toys can join hunting for food in the past where it belongs.

Yup. And considering there wasn't a preorder on Amazon (to my knowledge) and I missed the preorders on TRU and HTS (the latter after having the page up for three days, only to have him get listed between midnight and 5am, and sell out), I was screwed.

It always feels a little shitty when you have to pay that kind of price on eBay, but you gotta remember that continuing to spend time and gasoline on the hunt is costly in its own way. Sometimes it's​ nice to just have the thing dropped on your doorstep and know that it's done with.

This is exactly it. Generally, I will apply the logic of "does the cost eclipse my hourly pay times how many hours it takes". I do this for all sorts of things. In this case, I was taking my kids to my home state of Connecticut to visit family over spring break. I figured I would try to find him up there before taking the plunge on the secondary market.

 

I swung, I missed, I went to eBay. /shrug

Looks like some upcoming figures leaked out of a factory.

Including the 2017 SDCC set.

 

I really hope that Thor comes out somewhere else.

I don't have a ton of interest in most of those figures.

 

Although, I already have an original recipe Thor and an Odin.

I guess it wouldn't hurt to add another of their line.

Malaketh and Ulik are pretty big classic Thor villains. If you are a Thor comic fan you almost certainly know them. Bor I think is a bit more recent obscure.

ZacWilliam, Thor villains kinda go: Loki, Enchantress/Executioner, these two, Surtur and frost giants.
