I snagged Rainmakers for half off.  They make me want jolly ranchers.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 04:21 PM)

I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:23 AM)

Well there is an overpriced limited edition, but I don't want to pay that much money for it.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:21 AM)

Well great. The one Usagi Yojimbo volume I don't have and it's out of stock.

@  Rycochet : (17 January 2020 - 06:15 PM)

I both love and hate that the Alien franchise seems to have had more luck finding a niche as a line of children's toys than it has at producing worthwhile films.

@  Donocropolis : (17 January 2020 - 06:35 AM)

I've seen them on the shelves at Walmart. They're pretty great looking retro Aliens toys. https://www.walmart....-Vary/934039489

@  fourteenwings : (17 January 2020 - 01:11 AM)

IIRC somebody on here mentioned an unbranded Alien toy a couple of weeks ago? It seems like it was actually part of a collection for the Alien movie series by Lanard. Mattel's making some stuff too.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 January 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Is it really a worse name than say, HMS Spanker?

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 January 2020 - 02:36 PM)

'Boaty McBoatface' was a actual thing?! Wow.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (14 January 2020 - 02:00 PM)

Might be worth bringing back this thread.

@  ThunderWear : (14 January 2020 - 01:53 PM)

Of course I had the idea to download all the pdfs like a week too late. Anyone got an archive?

The Collector Club is dead. Seems like it all came down shortly after New Year

@  ThunderWear : (13 January 2020 - 11:06 PM)

I can't get to the collector club website. anyone else? I was literally going to download all the fiction to finish reading.

Even in fallout, they never carpet bombed with nukes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 January 2020 - 12:43 PM)

I hope the stockpiled nuclear weapons of the US and Russia are accounted for then.

@  Nevermore : (12 January 2020 - 12:22 PM)

Geez. 1760 (!) bombs from World War II that had not detonated and were still armed have been found. That's only the numbers for the federal state of Germany I live in, and only for the first three quarters of 2019. For all of 2018, the total number was 2811 (!!) bombs.

@  CVReynolds : (11 January 2020 - 11:05 PM)

I've been wanting a Tarantulas that turns into a more realistic tarantula for a long time. Maybe Takara will someday do a Masterpiece, which would be neat. But I really want to see a modernized look like in the IDW comics.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 January 2020 - 09:43 PM)

We need more Waspinators.. and rattraps.

@  Ashley : (11 January 2020 - 07:09 PM)

I'm on board with that

@  Dekafox : (11 January 2020 - 06:17 PM)

What I'm hearing is we need Cyberverse Waspinator

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 January 2020 - 01:27 AM)

He's appeared across more branding changes than Waspinator, so maybe it's more the other way around.

@  Ashley : (10 January 2020 - 12:01 AM)

is C3PO the Waspinator of Star Wars? he'll live forever, because it's funny for him to suffer

@  Sabrblade : (09 January 2020 - 11:52 PM)

I mean, it is easier to protect HDDs, and you can retransfer the data over and over forever?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 January 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Not in this comparison. He's making his own files, so they're (presumably) not restricted by DRM, so he can copy them as many times as he wants. It's potentially more reliable in the long term than hoping the specific copies you originally bought never accrue any damage for the rest of your life.

@  Echowarrior : (09 January 2020 - 10:44 AM)

I prefer physical copies too. Easier to protect something physical and tangible.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 09:55 AM)

I prefer having physical copies.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 January 2020 - 08:56 AM)

I have plenty of physical media I turn into digital media for my plex server. Just finished ripping Ultra Seven

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Isn't the general consensus that we're supposed to be over physical media anyways?

@  Paladin : (09 January 2020 - 08:17 AM)

i still don't own a Blu-Ray player.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 January 2020 - 07:35 AM)

My current TV works just fine. I don't see a need to upgrade. And by the time I do, the Next Big Thing will probably be out anyway.

@  Benbot : (09 January 2020 - 03:58 AM)

Me neither. I'm no rebel, though. I'm just poor.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 03:38 AM)

I haven't gone 4K yet, I'm a rebel.

@  Ashley : (07 January 2020 - 11:50 PM)

the comic theme is amazing

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Sounds like Victor Caroli but I’m not sure.

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 02:35 PM)

Should I recognise the narrator of the Mutant Hunt trailer?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 January 2020 - 04:30 AM)

I got me Titans Return Blaster, now watch them unveil Earthrise Blaster and Generations Perceptor, a retool of Titans Blaster.

@  ThunderWear : (06 January 2020 - 10:22 PM)

I recently switched to to the comic theme here at the Allspark and I'm so happy I just want to look at it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (06 January 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Can you not take so many lines to say anything?

@  fourteenwings : (06 January 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Iunno, maybe people having unique pronunciations of things re:how they understand language makes the world a more colourful place, rather than one where we correct every seemingly grievous error?

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:12 AM)

Others insist on "Michael Yackson".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:01 AM)

Because the very combination of those sounds is unknown to them, and thus they avoid it as if it were contagious.

I'm definitely excite for the AoA wave but also a little disappoint that one of the slots went to Sunfire.  I still have the HTS-exclusive version from 10+ years ago, it's still serviceable as a figure.  I would have preferred Cyclops, Rogue, or Magneto instead.

 

I definitely want a bigger Sabretooth, but I can still live with the ToyBiz version if it means getting a new character as the BAF - plz no Sugarman, though.  I hate Sugarman.

 

I'm hoping for Apocalypse with his big cape.  That was always one of my favourite ToyBiz 90s-era figures, especially because the cape/armour piece was removable.

So was Rogue the first use of a new female mold at the time or something. It seems if Im not looking at a 6x markup on eBay or elsewhere Im seeing her used as all sorts of custom fodder.

She really needs reissued in a two pack with Gambit or something.

Has anyone here tried swapping the AoU movie Hulk's head for the Endgame Hulk heads that come with Beta Ray Bill? I feel the logo apparel that AoU Hulk wears would look more appropriate on Endgame Hulk compared to those ripped pants. :hmm

So I never did see that Dani Moonstar. I went to several Walgreens on several occasions and never saw a single one. So I finally ordered one off Amazon for $30. It'll be here Monday. It's more than I wanted to spend, but at least I'll finally have my Wolvesbane.

It was delivered a day later than they said it would be. But I guess given the weather...I'm just glad to have it. I wish I could have afforded another so I could have Dani and Rahne at the same time, inflated Amazon prices made that impossible.

Ill wait for an X-factor Rahne. Really have no attachment to the New Mutants until they went on to X-Force and even then I really dont care for a good portion of that team.

Actually have been tempted to grab Canonball and Boom Boom but I already missed Cable and Domino and other than those two Canonball is about the only other member I would like to get..... in his later X-men uniform and preferably with a lower torso to switch out.

Isn't that a post-X-Force/X-Factor Rahne? It's certainly not the classic New Muties uniform.

It's a modern New Mutants look as the figure itself is billed as Dani Moonstar with Head and Hand swaps for Rahne and Karma.

I am weak! Knowing that in order to complete X-Factor I'd have to grab some of the X-Force characters like Sunspot and Warpath once Strong Guys wave comes around later this year, I figured why the heck not! LET'S GET ALL THE 90'S X-TEAMS. :wtf :drunk

I now have Boom Boom, Cannonball, and Cable in Hand. Domino and Shatterstar are in my Pile of Loot at BBTS, and lord knows I'm grabbing the entire Strong Guy Wave once it hits. And hey I still have Caliban.

 

Well this collection went from 4 to 40 in no time lately. :doh

Same thing happened to me.

 

Though I still refuse to buy Cannonball.  I'm hoping there is a multi-pack release with someone like Rictor, as I refuse to buy one without a normal lower half.

That's the main reason I didn't buy Canonball either. Having the lower half being a blasting fireball could work for a statue but not an action figure.

I get it too. I kinda wish they had made him the odd one out of the wave and instead of a build a figure piece gave him a swapable lower half.

I got him and Boom Boom half off at Walmart with the post Christmas clearance sales so I didn't feel too horrible for paying for him. Though it did prompt me to get the remaining two Wendigo pieces as with Sinister and Nightcrawler I had 4 of the 6. Though as much as I didn't want Wolverine again and had no desire for Guardian it would have been cheaper going back to Walamrt than buying the pieces off of Ebay.  :doh

So went to Walmart and both the Spider-Man wave and the FF wave were out in force. I picked up Superior Ock as I find it to be the only Ock I really want as "himself". I've really never cared for Classic Ock, and his more modern appearances in the comics have been more visually interesting to me. I'm sad that I missed out on Superior Spider-Man as I really liked that run of comics. And I'd almost be down for nearly dead Doc Ock in a box from just before Superior Spider-Man.

 

But man I hate the BaF racket at times. I so would love to have DemoGoblin but like the Kingpin wave I really don't want anyone else except maybe Vulture. The Game costume Spideys aren't really my thing and I really have no attachment to White Rabbit and Shang Chi.

 

FF might be a different story. I already have Doom at BBTS, but I do like the FF as it was one of my first team books. It's not my favorite look for the team and would prefer a more flamed on Johnny but I do want a version of the team and I doubt my prefered choice of costumes would ever come about outside the classic looks. Or the looks of when I started reading. Masked Thing and Sue's Malice influenced bathing suit probably aren't coming any time ever.  I probably will end up buying the four anyways. And if that's the case may have to just bite the bullet and get Grey She-Hulk as it'd pry be just as much to get the arms she comes with.

If you're willing to be patient, just wait a bit and buy only the BAF on Ebay. I don't think there's been a single one that wasn't available a year or so later for less than the sum of the individual figures.

 

The BAF process is a bit annoying, but the alternative at this point is not getting those figures at all.

Well ebayed the right arms of Kllrt since I really didnt care for Grey She-Hulk. But glad to have the FF. Reed is a tad disappointing with only stretchy fingers and Johnny just being a bit flamey. But hey I have the FF!

Heres hoping a 2099 Doom is somewhere in the nearer future.
