lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

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.

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?
