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)

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 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]

@  RichardT1977 : (14 July 2019 - 02:50 PM)

Yeah, the first long-term manned space outposts have traditionally been mining colonies and the like.

@  Arazyr : (13 July 2019 - 07:05 AM)

Yeah, I'm a season or so behind, so I would definitely appreciate no spoilers. 8^)

@  Sabrblade : (12 July 2019 - 10:21 PM)

Still, though, yeah, we do have a thread for the show. Best to use it.

@  Sabrblade : (12 July 2019 - 10:20 PM)

I think Nevermore once said he was a few episodes behind, so I don't think he's talking about tonight's new episode.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 July 2019 - 09:53 PM)

Yeah, you realize we have a designated thread for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., right?

@  MEDdMI : (12 July 2019 - 09:35 PM)

Not that I care about the show, but I'd be pretty annoyed about spoilers there. Please post it in a thread.

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 06:05 PM)

Okay, this is getting ridiculous. The opening of the episode was a deliberate play with clichés, but unfortunately, the rest of the episode that's played straight is also riddled with them...

No one said it was. I have seen the Moonstone variant in my area several times. They want her, and I just need to check a few more spots. I know she was in the same place at least twice over a month long period.

On the bright side, I found the Future Foundation set. Almost bought the GotG set, but I am already over the budget for the month.

No problem.

The Future Foundation set is out already? Time to go hunting for that set. I may ask for assistance with that one, if I can't find it locally.

As with Moonstone, I'll keep you in mind if I see one. TRU is where I found mine. icon-ironhide.gif


Does anyone have the Carnage and Mac Gargan Venom from the Spiderman line? I picked those up this weekend as well. Other than a slightly annoying lack of articulation in the torso and ankles, these guys rock. Carnage comes with some particularly cool weapons that definitely fit his personality. Venom comes with an extra "man-thing". icon-fire.gif


BTW, do we know if we are going to get an updated Thing? I want one with good hip and neck articulation like the recent Hulks.

I was kinda surprised to see Carnage, since I had passed on him. Never seen Venom before, but Tyler is becoming a toy collector haven, which can be good and bad at times. I'll add these to the list of things I know you might want. icon-ironhide.gif


I really want the all stone Absorbing Man. Has he been released yet, or is it like some of the variants, where they pop up in later assortments?

He did have the Spider-Man base though.


Not totally following you on the arm thing, but mine had perfectly fine plastic and I have no complaints.

That would be the newer version of Venom there {I think Carnage may be new too but I'm not sure if it's just his weapons or the actual mold. I have the Carnage with an axe and some other weapon I can't remember right now.}. I frankly have repurposed the original "web blast" Venom as Eddie even though it advertises it as Gargan. And this newer one {stretchy Symbiote Venom} is definitely Gargan. All though, I'm fearing a situation with all the villains in the Spidey line. Seemingly no where to be found then BOOM...all over the place {I'm waiting for the Lizards to show up again...}.

I'm hoping at some point Hasbro goes obscure and does a "silver armor Spider-man" aka Scarlet Spider Joe Wade in the Spider-man line up.

You're talking about 3-3/4 Spider-Man figs, right? I've got a regular Venom from that line, but have not seen the Gargan version. For some reason when I read your post, I saw Mac Gargan, and my brain inserted "Scorpion" afterwards.

I can't get the arms to go somewhat flat against his sides. Thanks to the jacket, they're seemingly stuck at a permanent 45 degree outward angle.

Gargan version of Venom just came out. But Ultimate Scorpion came out recently too...


I actually checked and I guess the Eddie Brock version didn't really mention Gargan on the card {looked online}. I may have to check those little bio card dealies again...

I may have mixed it up that they advertised the "Eddie" Venom as Gargan.

I'm kind of amused by the fact that Rhino and the rest of the villains have been all of the sudden been just as available as Spidey...

I'm going to buy an Eddie version now, in the hopes of buying a second Mac version and swapping out the legs. Also gonna rip out that stupid tongue and pretend it is a first appearance Venom. Creepy smile Venom beats phallic mouth Venom every time. At least this will come close to the look they appear to never want to produce.

Since I've made the switch to the MU-scale figs, their larger Legends cousins have been relegated to a storage box that is, quite honestly, doing nothing more than taking up space.

I dread the process of selling them, but I want them gone. Is there even a market for them anymore? Or will I be lucky to make a couple bucks per fig? Or is it not really worth my time at all?
