Ok, ok. Enough of the puns and let's all thank Kal for the amaizeing job he did.

That's so corny.

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)

@  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.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Though with the luck and caliber of leaders we've had of late in the darkest timeline, maybe it's too much to hope for.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM)

Just like democracy, it's not perfect but better than the present alternatives. Capitalism as it's practiced today won't be able to weather the coming wave of automation, though. Best to plan for it and hope for a gentle transition rather than the aforementioned collapse

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Capitalism is the worst amiright? Sent from my iPhone

@  Vexwing : (15 July 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Because the collapse is gonna be just great.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 PM)

Let's hope this is late stage and we're on the cusp of something better.

@  abates : (15 July 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Late stage capitalism is the absolute best.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 01:33 PM)

So, welcome to all retail, everywhere.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Oh, and Greenpeace also conducted a protest at a German Amazon facility, to protest against Amazon's practice of throwing customer returns in the trash.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Right, because with Amazon, it's just the employees that have to step in dog shit while having no space to breathe.[/slightexaggeration]

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 July 2019 - 01:03 PM)

At least I can use Amazon without losing the ability to breath or step in dog shit.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:58 PM)

Considering that Amazon is the new Walmart...

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

All of my best wishes go out to the brave women and men who have the balls (and ovaries) to go on strike at an Amazon facility in the US.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:38 PM)

Speaking of. Not only are we in Germany on strike today, but so is the fulfillment center in Shakopee, Minnesota!

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 12:36 PM)

Overnight delivery is the right of all sentient beings.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:34 PM)

(and is it sexist of me to assume that a character named "Amazon Prime" would be feminine?)

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:34 PM)

Whenever she was summoned, she would arrive the next day?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (15 July 2019 - 12:32 PM)

The Scioli and Barber TF vs Joe series mentioned an Amazon Prime.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:22 PM)

Meanwhile I'm wondering why no one's come up with a fan character named "Amazon Prime". I mean, today IS her special day...

Ive thought about grabbing Beast and Gambit a couple times lately, but knowing that I would want Cyclops and others Ive missed to complete the team makes me hesitant to pull that trigger.

Blink being my favorite character had me get her right away and since I equate her more with the AoA and Exiles its not a problem. Im almost tempted to get Archangel as he was a favorite too but like Cyke he would be a temptation for more.

But hey just this year has had me buying 4 Legends with both Scarlet Spiders, Silver Sable, and Blink. There have been quite a few others Ive thought of like Cloak and Dagger, they featured in one of my first marvel comics, but I already get too many toys as is.

Yeah, I look at these in the store and $20 a pop is enough to make me second guess buying one. Even worse is just knowing I'm going to get it home, look at it for 10 minutes, take a picture to prove I have it and then it'll sit on display collecting dust in a room I rarely even go into.

 

But you put Illyana, Blink, Jubilee and Kitty in front of my face and I freaking crack!

There's a rumoured 3 pack coming out that's Scott/Jean/Logan.  A lot of people are hoping for Jim Lee Cyclops (w/ jacket), 90s Jean re-do with pony-tail/animated headsculpt, and obligatory Wolverine (probably Tiger Stripe with unmasked head).

I already have Jim Lee Cyclops (and will also be buying the MAFEX one coming up), the first 90s Jean from the Return of ML, and of course, Apocalypse-wave Tiger Stripe Wolverine, but I would definitely be into that 3-pack.  The 80th Anniversary line is shaping up pretty nicely so far.

 

Right now, all of the classic Gold/Blue-era X-Men are still pretty recent so as to not be insanely expensive, with two exceptions:  Jim Lee Cyclops and Rogue, which are only like 2 years old.  So getting into a G/B collection is pretty opportune at the moment.

I do have the Toy Biz Bishop so there is a start. Though I do see him being a tad bit more bulky than Hasbro's, there were times it seemed like Bishop did tower over quite a few of the others at time. But if there is that 3-pack coming it would be mighty tempting.

I used to think that I didn't need to replace my ToyBiz Bishop, but I'm glad that I did.  Hasbro's colours also "pop" more.

Of course, I also thought my ToyBiz X-Men Classics Cyclops didn't need an update until I got the Hasbro Jim Lee Cyclops.

 

It's just one of those things.  You don't know how much better a figure could be until you have both versions in hand and see the dramatic differences between the two.

Except Rogue and Psylocke.  Damn, those were some poopy-faced figures.

Toybiz Rogue was super ugly. Like they needed to make her ugly continually.

I found Jim Lee Cyclops quite a few times actually. It was quite surprising.

I still want a 90s animated Morph, though.  I guess 90s Banshee, too.

Either would have been a good candidate for the retro-line.  Maybe wave 2.

See Morph I would rather have AoA or Exiles because then at least its just more than a guy in a blue and gold X-Men outfit with swapable heads. That and it'd be fun to see some of that versions more Cartoonish contortions of his own face

However, I have no attachment to AoA Morph whatsoever.

Got out my Toy Biz AoA Sabretooth and White Sasquatch. I'll give them some credit at detail work but damn it's still ugly. And Blink looks much too tall compared to this version of Mister Creed.

I was considering getting I to more 90s Toybiz AoA stuff...they did most of them, and I already have Magneto and Apocalypse (who is an amazingly cool but small figure).

I have Magneto, Cyclops, and Apocalypse.  They were solid figures.

Well, except for Magneto's translucent plastic hand.  It's made of that plastic that deteriorates over time and gets that "sticky" feel to it.

I think I may have kept it anyway because I didn't have the heart to throw it out like I did my 2012-13 era Walmart Jabba the Hutt.

I’ve still got my AoA Magneto somewhere. He was my stand-in for the “real” Magneto back in the 5” scale days, since the costume was close enough and he was just such a better toy than Toy Biz’s first attempt.

Got Bishop out from storage as well remembering I also got Toy Biz versions of AoA Weapon X, Planet Hulk Gladiator Hulk, and X-23. So glad Hasbro took out toe joints.

 

I'm cool with this Bishop. the Ball joint hips are a bit off putting and he does look a bit grittier but he's alright. Hulk Has been one of my favorites since I got him, Just wish he had come with an axe or something to go with the shield and armor.

 

Weapon X is suffereing from crazy Toy Biz face but decent for a one armed Wolvy. X-23 is mostly a good figure too but again the face is an issue. I'm tempted to grab the Wolverine or another current Hasbro version. Though do Hasbro's Lauras have the feet claws?

X-Force Laura, no.  Wolverine Laura, yes.

Wolverine Laura is an awesome figure with an awesome unmasked head.  I actually prefer it to the masked one.

 

My AoA Weapon X variant suffers from the claws curving inexplicably into a C-shape.  I boiled and straightened them years ago, but they eventually returned to the warped state.  That reminds me, I need to fix it again.

So the rest of the X-Men Caliban wave other than Jubes came in today. Not sure I'll keep everyone as I have no attachment to the Reavers and have never had much of a want for Wolverine in his skivies. But Beast is just awesome.

 

But taking out Skullbuster His Cyborg arm popped out and continues to do so easily. Considering the character could it be intentional?
