Moon base is fine. I knew the castle was a total loss so I gave Olrox my best cape and told him he could have the throne room. The damn belmonts couldn't tell the difference

@  Waspinator : (21 August 2017 - 11:02 PM)

Which left like a hundred disappointed middle schoolers.

@  Diecast : (21 August 2017 - 06:09 PM)

Where I'm located got 95% eclipse. Which lacked a worthwhile climax. I really should have driven into it, but I planned on going to my science teacher wife's school thing that got cancelled last minute.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 August 2017 - 03:44 PM)

I was considering trying to get the day off for it and driving down south to the US far enough that I could see the total eclipse, but after looking into it it seems like there's another total eclipse coming up in 2024 where the totality will be visible just 45 minutes south-west of me, so I figure I'll wait it out

This news about Joss Whedon sure was a thing to wake up to.

@  Sabrblade : (20 August 2017 - 06:59 PM)

To back up to the original question about Scramble City's existence in regards to the English-language cartoon continuity, the pack-in comic that came with the Australian DVD boxed set released by Madman did feature a timeline of events that included a point in history titles "Scramble City", so that comic may at least want us to "pretend" that Scramble City happened in the cartoon continuity. But then again, that same comic also used the Marvel Comics' asteroid crisis as the true reason for the Ark's launch, and included the Beast Wars as being unambiguously part of this timeline, so make of that comic's timeline what you will.

@  NightViper : (20 August 2017 - 09:16 AM)

And unlike Takara's JG1 that has been steadily evolving and passing itself down from writer to writer in more-or-less smooth transition, anyone going back now to Hasbro's G1 does feel a bit more like changing history rather than reviving or continuing it.

@  NightViper : (20 August 2017 - 09:11 AM)

Editors at Fun Pub didn't feel it was right to try to "fix" or otherwise change or alter other writers' works. Which is why everything Fun Pub-written became its own stream (Animated was written by the same creative team as the show, so it's one of the very few stories still set in its original continuity). So rather than write words into the original creative team's mouths, Wings only sought to offer one possible solution to the Constructicons weirdness.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 August 2017 - 08:24 PM)

Too bad there weren't that many Wings stories. On the other hand, JG1 is still continuing with stories!

@  Spacewarp : (19 August 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Wings is obviously not cartoon continuity, but is heavily indebted to it.

@  Spacewarp : (19 August 2017 - 06:09 PM)

Basically what my original point was that continuities based on the original cartoon but not actually a part of it have used what Pennpenn originally said.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 August 2017 - 05:42 PM)

I get what you mean, but the wording is awful. It's not possible for Wings to "alter" or "destroy" something it was never part of, nor really interacted with.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 August 2017 - 05:40 PM)

It didn't "alter the existing continuity". It's an entirely new one that left the cartoon's continuity exactly as it ever was.

@  Bass X0 : (19 August 2017 - 05:24 PM)

didn't it take the original cartoon continuity but change parts of it to make a new continuity? i said i'd have preferred it stayed within the original cartoon continuity instead of altering the existing continuity. thats what i would have done. stories would have been written around the existing stories.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 August 2017 - 04:24 PM)

Wings can't "destroy it even further" when it was never the cartoon continuity in the first place.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 August 2017 - 03:57 PM)

The problem is that it isn't really fixable without redoing it from the ground up. Or going into insane retcons and rewrites, which A) is about the same thing, and B) is kinda Takara's thing.

@  Bass X0 : (19 August 2017 - 03:22 PM)

I find its better to fix a broken continuity than to destroy it even further.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 August 2017 - 03:06 PM)

The cartoon couldn't even stay consistent with the cartoon, so why worry when something else can't, either?

@  Bass X0 : (19 August 2017 - 02:53 PM)

I never connected with the whole "Wings is similar to the cartoon continuity but several things are different" thing they had going on. they should really have done it so that it stayed in continuity with the cartoon but focused on the off-screen events prior, during and after the cartoon stories.

@  unluckiness : (19 August 2017 - 10:42 AM)

Not like it's ever relevant anyway.

@  Pennpenn : (19 August 2017 - 10:00 AM)

I mean, it doesn't make sense otherwise, regardless of how official particular fiction is.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 August 2017 - 09:57 AM)

Wings is officially not really cartoon continuity, though.

@  Spacewarp : (19 August 2017 - 09:55 AM)

@Pennpenn: There is some fiction that does actually use the whole "they were rebuilt on Earth" explanation. The Fun Pub Wings stuff comes to mind.

@  Pennpenn : (19 August 2017 - 08:36 AM)

Oh absolutely

@  unluckiness : (19 August 2017 - 05:00 AM)

point is, the cartoon's continuity was hugged to begin with.

@  Pennpenn : (19 August 2017 - 03:53 AM)

My brain usually parses that as "Constructicons built him on contract or something so weren't evil then, and Megatron meant rebuilt in Heavy Metal War". Yeah it's a stretch, but whatever

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?

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?
