The president has been kidnapped by ninjas. Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the president?

@  Otaku : (13 August 2020 - 03:08 PM)

At first, I obviously thought I was correct.  Then I thought perhaps the spelling had changed for some reason.  Copyright/trademark law is weird, ya know?  Now I just accept I goofed. XD

@  Otaku : (13 August 2020 - 03:07 PM)

See, that one directly applies to me.  Apparently, I'd been misreading and mispronouncing it wrong for over 30 years... and I still slip and do it the wrong way much of the time.

Others say Joe sat down at this pond next to these ducks but really there's just no place in this world for an old man and his ducks.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:48 PM)

Even worse when I can produce those verifiable facts at a later point, and then the other person simply claims the argument was the other way round (as in, I was actually arguing their position and vice versa).

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:47 PM)

I can argue with people about my versus their memory of events when verifiable facts are not readily available, though, and I get really annoyed when I'm capable of presenting a precise, step-by-step summary with multiple key points that can be used for future verification, and the other person just goes "nope, wrong" without going into detail.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:45 PM)

I forget things, and I misremember things. But when presented with verifiable facts, my reaction is more like "Huh, could have sworn it was like that", not "this reality is not my own".

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:43 PM)

I have an extremely good memory (which I have proven time and again), and even I can be mistaken.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 August 2020 - 06:40 PM)

Might be worth pointing out that it only became "Mandela Effect" and not just "I remembered this wrong" when a conspiracy theorist insisted it was proof of alternate timelines.

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Incorrectly remembering Nelson Mandela's fate may be uniquely American... but is it really that strange to get South African political history wrong when you're no where near South Africa?

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

I always assumed the Mandela Effect was a "human thing", not an American thing.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2020 - 02:03 PM)

Then there are people who outright manufacture memories for whatever reason.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (10 August 2020 - 01:13 PM)

The human brain is so flaky that it is extremely unlikely that a given person does NOT have any false memories.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Perhaps it's simple word association the movie Sinbad and then our minds apply the same memories to a man named Sinbad.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:04 PM)

The Mandela Effect is the same as people remembering Sinbad in a movie where he played a genie... Of which he never did.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:36 AM)

People that believe Mandela Effect things would rather come up with any number of reasons as to why their version doesn't have any actual evidence(like alternate timelines collapsing into our own) than just admit they remembered something wrong

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Sort of. It's more that when presented with a verifiable fact, they double down because it's what they believe instead of changing their minds

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

"I could have sworn that ______."

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

I'm not arguing with either of those two statements, but they're not really connected. Mandela Effect is, to oversimplify, people being widely mistaken about what they think *is* a verifiable fact. Nothing to do with opinions.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 08:52 AM)

Pretty sure the Mandela Effect in general is an American thing. Opinion > Verifiable Facts is sadly a pretty American thing

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:27 AM)

Ask these people how Apartheid ended according to their recollection, and I'm sure they'll draw a blank.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:25 AM)

You got two black anti-Apartheid activists who were imprisoned by the oppressive regime. One died, the other was Nelson Mandela. It's not a far stretch that Americans who don't know many details about the history of other countries would mix up the two.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:24 AM)

My own theory is that these people are simply mixing up Nelson Mandela and Steve Biko, another South African anti-Apartheid activist, who did indeed die in police custody in 1977. There was an Oscar-nominated movie about his life starring Denzel Washington that came out in 1987, the same time frame these people claim remembering Mandela dying.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:17 AM)

I met a few people from South Africa, and they either never heard of the phenomenon at all, or only know of it from the internet. Apparently, it's completely unknown in South Africa, and it might even be entirely limited to the United States.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:16 AM)

So does anyone remember the "Mandela Effect"? I'm talking specifically about the original case where many people vividly remember Nelson Mandela dying in prison in the 1980s.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 August 2020 - 03:16 AM)

Crisis of Corona.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 06:16 PM)

Which crisis crossover are we on now? I lost track.

@  Rycochet : (09 August 2020 - 05:18 PM)

Much of the past decade has been the part of the comic series where less than stellar authors have driven the series into the ground and the editors are getting ready to either do a big multi issue crossover, leading to a reboot.

@  Bass X0 : (09 August 2020 - 02:28 PM)

At this point I've just decided to consider 2020 "not canon."

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 02:18 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 August 2020 - 02:10 PM)

I had the Build a Figure Juggernaut from a year or two ago, and was perfectly happy with him.

 

But man, the new one blows him out of the water.  And all they needed to do was give him a new helmet (I think the underlying face might be the same or almost the same, just painted differently), take off his belt, and make him more red.

 

He's like this perfect representation of the Juggernaut in my mind.  It makes me think of the Jim Lee and Rob Leifeld art with him.  Where his eyes were all white and he was a lot more red than other depictions.  Oh and the Children of the Atom game.  That too.

Dang it! Now there is a reason to get Silver Samurai :D Have they done Spiral before? And we need the Capcom Sentinel as a new BaF.

Yeah, there's a Spiral from the early days of Hasbro's ML.  Ironically, she's still a pretty decent figure, and one of the very few female moulds to feature double-jointed elbows.

 

I really heart the new Juggernaut compared to the old BAF, mainly because of the red.  My only gripe is that the helmet doesn't set flush against the body.

 

I'm still torn between it and Marvel Select Juggernaut as my favourite.  I think if MS ever released the mould in red instead of brown, that would be the final push for MS to win.  Until then, 80th Juggernaut went on my X-Villains shelf.

 

I really do like the Silver Samurai figure.  Although, I might buy a new one because the one I got from Hasbro Pulse has a doofy left eye.

Over the past month, I've managed to snag Madripor Wolverine, the Colossus-Juggernaut 2-pack, Gambit on clearance at Best Buy, 80th Thor and Iron Man, Nightcrawler, and Blink. Not too bad.

Found the Into the Spiderverse Miles and Gwen 2 pack at a hobby shop the other day. Was pretty cool with it until I opened it up and realized this was a pretty poor pack for Gwen. First of all her right arm thanks to paint is permanently in a straight position and I fear trying to bend it will brake the joint completely. Two they used a classic comic Gwen head for her unmasked look. I dont believe Spider-Gwen has ever had the black hair band unless she was trying to pose as classic Gwen in the Clone Thing a few years ago in the comics.

Actually nope. Your right about her first appearance but the headband has been ditched for a long time now. Even so if this is supposed to be based on the Spider-verse movie she never had it even before Miles takes off with a handful of her hair.

So sounds like the AoA wave has been fully announced other than the BaF.

Weapon X, Jean Grey, Wild Child, Morph, X-man, Sunfire, and Dark Beast. Not sure if Sunfire is a new mold or not.

Depending on the BaF I could buy the full wave. Definitely need Morph, as he still is identical to the Exiles version at the beginning. Wild Child could pair well with my old Toy Biz AoA Sabretooth. X-man and Sunfire are just cool designs and Dark Beast is cool too. But I still have Weapon X from Toy Biz and not too thrilled about Jean taking the spot over someone like Rogue or Bishop.

I won't buy many figs from the AOA line, but it's cool as all hell. I hope the build a figure is Sabertooth, because I definitely want him. Also, that Sunfire is too good to pass up.
