It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2019 - 10:30 AM)

O never hated it, the whole thing was an Indiana Jones movie. I didn't care for the CGI, but that's just nature of the beast.

@  Paladin : (19 July 2019 - 07:58 AM)

sidebar- has enough time passed that we can stop irrationally hating "Crystal Skull" yet?

@  Telly : (18 July 2019 - 09:18 PM)

after 38 years and i dont know how many viewings, today is the first time i noticed indiana jones doesnt use a revolver in the bar fight in raiders...

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:26 PM)

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:38 AM)

Would you like some dressing to go with your word salad?

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

yes; it now goes "shit piss hug *BLEEP* ^$@^ motherhuger **** turd fart encyclopedia & Socialism."

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:24 AM)

This is an American site, but isn't that unnecessarily severe language? IIRC it's one of the top four offensive pejoratives to English people

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

So I admittedly don't have any strong particular ties to F4.  I will totally buy the Walgreen Thing for my Avengers West Coast display, of course, but I hadn't planned on hunting down the other members.  I found Walgreens Torch on Amazon for less than $20 so I figured, why not?

 

Umm yeah.  This figure is freaking awesome.

I need to figure out where I'm going to display him permanently because once I put him "flying" on a figure stand, I simply cannot imagine binning him along with Ronan Reed and Susan (and Ares series Torch).

I went ahead and bought Sabretooth for the Apocalypse arm. Marvel Select Sabretooth still reigns on my X-baddy shelf due to his bulky size and lighter-brown deco. ML Sabretooth is by no means a bad figure, though so I decided to pose him with Red Hulk Tiger-stripe Wolverine elsewhere. I thought for sure I was going to bin that Wolvie figure once I got the new Tiger-stripe Wolverine, but there's something about the oversized claws and bright yellow deco that just makes him endearing to me. It's really too bad that 90s Sabretooth won't get another re-do anytime soon because that new Omega Red body would have been ideal for him instead of the skinny/dinky version that we got this time around.

I finally got my grubby hands on SP//dr wave Doc Ock and...god I hate pre-posed tentacles.

 

I mean, he's a great figure, but not putting wires in these babies is just a horrid decision.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible.

That, and the way two of them are pre-posed to face backwards?  Yeah, I was really disappointed with that figure.

If I ever see a second one on clearance, I'm going to buy it just so I can have four tentacles that point the correct direction.

Fun Fact: the tentacles from the original Marvel Legends Doctor Octopus (later released in Hasbro's Spider Man Classics in 2008) fit nearly perfectly, just sticking out a little from the plug hole.


Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

I heard that, too. I wonder if these $20 10 packs on eBay will fit though.

Ive also heard customizers swear on flexible USB cords? I need to research those.

Also, I lucked out at an out of town Walgreens and found Invisible Woman and Thing.

Wow, I never really realised how bad the Ronan-wave Thing was until I compared it next to this new one.

 

This figure is solid, too.

You'd think that Atlas would be on a short list for BAFs.

 

The only question is...  Mach-1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc....?

Mach-1 or Mach-5. Throw in 2 alternate, unmasked heads for Abe's two ethnicity options, too.

 

Citizen V is using the Bucky-Cap mold, right? Putting that Zemo head from the Winter Soldier Cap wave to simulate this:
