Are they going to call it "I-Did-Nawtflix?"

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 12:48 AM)

I see, so what the world needs is a Tommy Wiseau streaming service.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 11:02 PM)

Well, Conan did start the trend that resulted in a wave of Barbarian films in the mid to late 80s

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2019 - 10:57 PM)

I keep wanting to read Corman as Conan

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:29 PM)

There needs to be some streaming service that caters to connoisseurs of schlock. Otherwise, a huge part of our cultural history will be wiped away. While many of these films are available on blu-ray, with more coming out each month, it's good they're also available for the streaming crowd.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:18 PM)

Corman did make an impressive number of barbarian films back in the day. If impressive is the word

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:11 PM)

I mean, where else are you going to see the entire Roger Corman barbarian fantasy library (legally) for free?

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:09 PM)

Oh Tubi TV, you are a haven for terrible films. Netflix, Hulu and Crackle all push for mainstream appeal and prestige, you got the guts to have ready access to dregs even the SyFy channel wouldn't air

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

Also you have Bayonetta and a bunch of Fire Emblem people.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

...I mean, Tales character. Probably up to/for it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 01:26 PM)

But what if I need to kill a god? Or several of them?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

Kratos is allowed, but only the one from Tales of Symphonia

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 10:56 AM)

So no Kratos?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:42 AM)

In any case I'd rather have another Fire Emblem character than another character from a PlayStation exclusive game who teeeeeechnically was in a spinoff.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:39 AM)

Kong had his name on the games first, but Mario was the protagonist first. It's debatable.

@  Rycochet : (17 June 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Wouldn't Mario be the one spun off from the Donkey Kong franchise, given that Kong was first?

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 05:19 AM)

I would count Wario and Yoshi, but not DK (might be because I wasn't even aware DK was spun off from the Mario franchise until I was in my mid-20s, but whatever)

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:13 AM)

But to be fair, Corrin is the only one I particularly dislike and it's really more boredom due to their blandness as characters

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:09 AM)

It would depend on whether or not you count DK, Wario and Yoshi as part of the Mario franchise or separate. Scratch that, there are more Mario characters even with just the mushroom symbol people but it's a close call.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 02:55 AM)

You'd figure Fire Emblem would have enough characters in Smash. Kinda feels like there's more FE characters than Mario characters.

@  unluckiness : (16 June 2019 - 01:20 AM)

And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 June 2019 - 04:11 PM)

Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Given Nintendo's relationship with Tecmo, I'm still waiting for Ryu Hyabusa

I'm still waiting for Doomguy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I just started watching High School DxD (don't judge me...) and I caught on the Nintendo Treehouse some request Rias for Smash lol

I just wish they'd release the Astro City paperback trades.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:31 AM)

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 05:31 PM)

yeah, i just need something small to plug into the wall. im not sure im taking my laptop on my trip later this year and i want a way to charge my stuff

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:04 PM)

They also have wall outlets with built-in USB in addition to the two regular plugs; I installed those around my place so I have USB ports everywhere

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:02 PM)

You might be able to get a generic adapter to use with it at Radio Shack if you know the appropriate voltages or whatever

There was a Legends version of the Red and Gold Iron Spider made at one point wasn't there? I have a version of an early Hasbro line, but I don't believe it was coined under the Legends line at the time. It was the Spider-Man Origins line

Found all but Beast and Weapon X from the latest wave. Little bummed that Jubilee's glasses seemingly don't come off from her normal face. :/

 

I haven't been able to find them anywhere.  The Amazon preorder for Gambit gives a release date of 7/1.  Are they not actually supposed to be out yet?

I've found them at 3 different Walmarts.  So they're out there.  Kind of annoyed by the Jubilee normal head thing.

Same here. I got a notice that they were going to send me Jubilee too, but then decided, nope, she'll come in July with the rest of the wave.

Superb wave. The only figure I don't want is Loki, and that War Machine kicks all imaginable ass.

 

Now, we need a proper Endgame Cap, and ThiccThor.

It's very similar to his previous uniform from Civil/Infinity War, except the chest and shoulders are covered in armored scales.  I don't blame you for not noticing.

I've traditionally stayed away from 6inch Marvel Legends toys because 1) I prefer the 3 3/4 or 4 inch scale I grew up with for action figures and 2) the bigger size means a bigger price and I already collect too many things for my wallet's comfort.

I've had the Death's Head II figure and the older Heroes for Hire Armor Black Knight but that's it. On a whim cause we got our tax return this week and my birthday is coming up my wife bought me the Infinity War wave Black Knight and Malekith. I like them a lot and that got me thinking I'd like the Black Knight's teammates from the 90s Avengers. So now I have Hercules and Vision on my Amazon Wishlist. Sadly there havn't been any Sersi and Crystal Legends. Boo. :p

And THAT got me thinking of other teams I'd like to own and looking at how spotty their Completion are. There's Citizen V and Songbird for Thunderbolts and that's all. Night Thrasher but no Speedball or Namorita or the rest. Major Victory/Vance Astro but a Charlie 27 or Martinex seems to have little chance. The inability to complete these line-ups is saving me from spending too much and jumping in whole hog.

On the other hand I just bought Wonder Man off Ebay so I can team him with the just released Beast figure. ;p


-ZacWilliam, also it seems absolutely insane to me that we've never gotten a Squirrel Girl figure by this point at any size. That's, excuse the word, nuts.

Night Thrasher’s technically the first indication that they’re looking to do a Warriors team, so I fully expect we’ll keep seeing new additions. (Nova came out earlier, but that was just because he’s a cosmic character)

For the Thunderbolts, my guess is we’ll get a Mach-1 (or whatever number), since he’s still active. I don’t know as I’d lay odds on Moonstone-as-Meteorite, Fixer-as-Techno, etc. But I’ve been surprised before,

The old-school GOTG, that’s a horse I wouldn’t bet on unless any of those characters make a splash in a future sequel.

I'm always up for more AoA figures.  I still have my ToyBiz Sabretooth and two versions of Weapon X along with Hasbro Sunfire, BAF Holocaust/Nemesis, and the Shadow King from the original AoA Apocalypse toy from the 90s prominently displayed.

 

AoA Cyclops was always one of my favourite alternate versions.  I imagine getting a Dark Beast is likely since Hasbro will want to get another use out of the new Beast mould.

My one small hope for why we haven't gotten Squirrel Girl is because they don't have a female buck that would be right for her. Hopefully that will change once we get live-action SG.

There was Iceman in the Juggernaut wave, but he doesn't look like Iceman from that era.  With the ice crystals and toed feet look.

Archangel just came out in a large set, so he's good.

Bishop was also recent in the Sauron wave.

A 1991 looking Colossus is coming in a 2 pack with Juggernaut.

There was a 1991 Jean Grey in 2013, but obviously that's been 6 years, she's expensive, and isn't as nice as the newer figures are.

1991 Storm hasn't been done since I think the Toybiz days, so hopefully she's on the to-do list, but we also got the 1980's mohawk Storm, so it might be a while.

 

So Archangel, Bishop, and Colossus are perfect.  It's the other three that are either old and expensive or in need of a more Jim Lee outfit update.

I'm super bummed the new Beast doesn't have an alt head. It's not that there isn't plenty of art of him with that snarling face in the 90s, but a smiling, joking head or a studious head with glasses both would express his personality way better.

-ZacWilliam, the existent one is gonna look just a bit off when I put him with his bestie Wonderman.

I have that figure, and I hate him. The plastic he's made of is way too soft, and he's constantly falling over. Even with a peg-stand or sticky-tac.
