Well then they need to re-release Vector Prime. :D Of course I would accept Vector Prime Headmaster with Alpha Trion as the head.

@  unluckiness : (18 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

That said, the bendy sword is ridiculous.

@  unluckiness : (18 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

I dunno, the old one is still pretty good by modern standards and the clunkiness is somewhat in-character.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 August 2019 - 08:37 PM)

We need a new vector prime

@  Paladin : (17 August 2019 - 03:59 PM)

just don't leave Cybertron Vector Prime out in the sun or his wings will melt.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 August 2019 - 03:17 PM)

@Nevermore Duly noted.

@  Rycochet : (17 August 2019 - 02:12 PM)

I have three Cybertron Vector Primes, wouldn't throw them around though. I love that design too much,

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 August 2019 - 02:03 PM)

I'm just picturing someone throwing a pile of Vector Prime toys around. I don't know why.

@  Rycochet : (17 August 2019 - 01:42 PM)

Multi Vector Assault mode is what they go into when they think anyone's even slightly infringing on their IP.

@  Ashley : (17 August 2019 - 02:30 AM)

They MIGHT have done it for Star Trek Online ships, but even if they have that'd be a fairly specific category.

@  Tieria Prime : (17 August 2019 - 02:11 AM)

Hi friends

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:05 AM)

So only if Viacom/Paramount has actively trademarked the term "multi-vector assault mode", offered goods or services under that name and has been offering those goods and services in recent years, Hasbro cannot offer goods or services under that name in the same category.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:04 AM)

And they need to be consistently used on top of that.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:03 AM)

Even if they are trademarked.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:02 AM)

Words and terms used in dialogue shouldn't be affected.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:02 AM)

Also, the trademarks only apply in commerce. You use them to identify goods and services.

@  Ashley : (16 August 2019 - 11:55 PM)

Yeah, you also need to apply for it. They might've never bothered to trademark that.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 August 2019 - 08:37 PM)

Trademark affects titles and product names, not every word in writing. For example, DC called their character "Captain Marvel" as recently as 2014.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 August 2019 - 08:30 PM)

You missed my point. I was addressing the usage of the phrase in dialogue. Hence the quotation marks.

@  Pennpenn : (16 August 2019 - 08:00 PM)

Well, they can anyway, they might just not be able to call it that...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 August 2019 - 06:54 PM)

It would be awesome for Transformers to have the likes of Overlord and Sky Lynx "engage multi-vector assault mode!"

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 August 2019 - 06:53 PM)

It is a shame that "multi-vector assault mode" is probably trademarked for Star Trek.

@  unluckiness : (15 August 2019 - 10:54 PM)

Only if they manage to boomer-proof it

@  RichardT1977 : (15 August 2019 - 08:16 PM)

(and would that really be a bad thing?)

@  RichardT1977 : (15 August 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Wouldn't a cybernetic singularity actually remove one or more of the top levels of Maslow's hierarchy?

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 August 2019 - 07:40 PM)

Tomy made some strange selections on their first wave of Tomica releases for the US

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 August 2019 - 06:26 PM)

Resistance is futile.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 August 2019 - 06:20 PM)

I would be down for a nice cybernetic singularity if it meant we could actually reach the top of maslow's hierarchy.

@  Ashley : (15 August 2019 - 05:44 PM)

I'm pretty sure the origin of the villains in GaoGaiGar was a computer being told to reduce the stress of the population and it's answer was to assimilate everyone.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 August 2019 - 01:53 PM)

Executions then followed by nano reanimation then cryonic suspension until everyone you know is deactivated for good so you can build happiness in a future society.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 August 2019 - 01:47 PM)

As opposed to the ones that lie already? As a civilization: we're emotional and socially broken. Might as well have the society that at least wants us to be "happy".

@  RichardT1977 : (15 August 2019 - 11:48 AM)

Or you'd have a lot of people lying about their emotional state to avoid being executed.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 August 2019 - 11:18 AM)

That would actually be a massive step up: since there's a LOT of stuff needed to quantify happiness, and it could only be an improvement over the existing governments which actually don't care if you live or die, never mind if you're "happy".

@  RichardT1977 : (15 August 2019 - 10:02 AM)

Happiness is mandatory, citizen. Failure to be happy is treason. Have a nice daycycle!

@  unluckiness : (15 August 2019 - 01:46 AM)

Maslow's hierarchy of needs

@  MrBlud : (14 August 2019 - 09:46 PM)

Humanity is pretty forgiving if you take care of its basic needs. "Freedom" and "Privacy" don't have much hold when you can't afford food, shelter, or medicine.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 August 2019 - 03:29 PM)

Something something peace through tyranny.

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 August 2019 - 02:43 PM)

You probably will have a house, AI overseers will crack down on stress, poverty, homelessness and human administration.

@  Rycochet : (14 August 2019 - 02:36 PM)

The bad news is they'll probab;y be made and operated by Amazon so will record every single thing you do and transmit it to their datacenters so theycan have human operators sift through it and laugh at footage of you dancing in your socks or having intercourse.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (14 August 2019 - 02:32 PM)

What if I don't have a house by then?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 August 2019 - 02:32 PM)

If the robot will do the cleaning, I don't care if it's mandatory. I'm sick of moping floors.

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 August 2019 - 02:05 PM)

humanoid service robots, one for every house in the west. ETA: 2050. household robots will be mandatory.

@  Rycochet : (14 August 2019 - 02:03 PM)

All I know is it'd be tragic if those evil robots win. I know she can beat them.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 August 2019 - 01:53 PM)

Big ones? Small ones? Ones as big as your head?

@  Rycochet : (14 August 2019 - 12:22 PM)

The robots are pink. Someone call Yoshimi!

@  wonko the sane? : (14 August 2019 - 11:11 AM)

Yeah, could you maybe be more specific? Are they good robots? Bad ones? Do they just want to take our jobs? We need more information to work out how we feel about them.

@  Benbot : (14 August 2019 - 11:03 AM)

which ones?

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 August 2019 - 11:24 AM)

Robots are coming....

@  wonko the sane? : (12 August 2019 - 07:14 PM)

I just got Bishop. Poison is in the mail, and I'm waiting to see what other Apocalypse BAF pieces I need on eBay.

 

I still need to get Black Knight from the last Avengers wave, the new Wolverine, Bloodstorm, Gladiator, Magneto and Psylocke from the X-Wave, Omega Red from the DP Wave, Walgreens Surfer, Magik and Ben Grimm, and looks like I'm done for 2018.

Good news:  I found Apocalypse Wave Magnet at Target today.

Bad news:  I don't have any real tie to this iteration of Magneto.

Good news:  He comes with the Apocalypse BAF piece that I need.

Bad news:  I really don't give a crap about this figure.

Good news:  The alternate head fits on Jubilee Magneto's body just fine.

 

So yeah, I'm going to chalk that up as a win.

 

The alternate head is far from perfect.  Here's hoping when they do this rumoured Classic Magneto/Wanda/Pietro 3-pack, that they improve on it.

 

Until then, my X-villain shelf is populated with Magneto's duck-footed brother sporting his a receding hairline.

Pre-Orders are up for Marvel Vintage Wave 2.  I'm getting the feeling that this turned into the "test model" for what Hasbro's going to do with Star Wars Black Reruns.  I'm probably going to get Scarlet Spider.  If for no other reason than they are acknowledging him.  Props for including the "micro" versions of their counterparts in Ant-Man and Wasp.  It's also nice to see that Hasbro's managed to get a fairly decent spread of Avengers out in these two waves.  Drop in a Thor and Scarlett Witch, and you'd have a pretty dang classic crew in a short period of time.

I mean, I'll try putting it on my BAF MCU Ultron, but comparing it to the Bullseye body Vision is based on, it isn't that much bigger. MCU Ultron's head peg is huge.

Not that the general point doesn't stand, but Vision isn't based on the Bullseye body.  Pretty sure Hasbro's retired that buck, now that they've crafted replacements.

 

I'm pretty sure that's the newer "Sunfire" body, but I actually don't own any figures yet that have used it, so I'm not super familiar with it.

Ah, therein lies the confusion.

 

The general fandom uses "Bullseye Body/Buck" to refer to the one that debuted on Toybiz's Bullseye, and that Hasbro used a modified version of for quite awhile into their tenure as well.

 

I'd forgotten Hasbro's Bullseye was on that body, which I actually do own.  Yeah, that's the one that's generally referred to as the "Sunfire body" because that's where it debuted, with the Warlock wave Sunfire.

According to the mold reuse list I found, the first usage is the Modern white 2099 Spidey.

 

That Bucky Cap list, though. Jesus.

 

Anyway, Target restocked and I found remnants of the Apocalypse wave. I got Tiger Stripe/90's Wolverine and Gladiator.

I got lucky and found the entire Sauron wave at Walmart.

Obviously, I had to put Wolverine, Bishop, and Omega Red in my basket.

But then I figured, why the hell not just complete Sauron today?  Because he is awesome.

 

So yeah, three more Deadpool figures for the shelf.

 

I haven't bought a solid wave in a single go since Space Venom.  It's amazing what an exciting BAF will do for impulsive purchases.

While I'm not crazy about so many Deadpool figures in a single wave, I did have an active display of Deadpool figures on one of my shelves so adding to that made it a little less painful buying them to get the Sauron pieces:
IMG_6680.jpg

 

Besides, it was total worth it to add this to my X-Villain display:
IMG_6686.jpg

I haven't replaced my ToyBiz Omega Red yet - still having fun posing the new one.

 

And since I'm in the mood for pictures, my Dark Avengers got a recent update:
IMG_6683.jpg

(Yes, I include Juggernaut since I play Marvel Puzzle Quest on my phone).  I'm hoping the rumoured Moonstone figure for the Captain Marvel wave is true.  Monster Venom will likely replace my "contained" Dark Spider-Man/Venom figure once I complete that BAF.

 

Also, what a difference 4 years will make.

2014 X-Men Blue/Gold:
IMG_4495.jpg

 

2018 X-Men Blue/Gold:
IMG_6681.jpg

 

I'm definitely looking forward to the Gambit update and the non-shiny Archangel coming out later.

Still want an updated Storm and maybe a new Jean with a pony-tail head from the 90s Cartoon.

Oh man, Spider-Ham is easily one of the worst ML figures since ML came back.  No articulation below the waist, and they didn't even paint the web lines on his costume.  When I put him on my Spider-Verse display, he stands out like a McDonald's toy.

 

At least I have my Monster Bad Spider-man torso (albeit a hollow torso).  And I can use the Bad Spider-Ham head with the Eddie Brock body from this wave.

 

Still, it was $15 way too much for that toy.
