It's like drawing someone in the "superhero landing" pose. It's just part of the cultural vocabulary at this point.

@  Arazyr : (25 June 2019 - 07:14 PM)

I can hear that post... *shudder*

@  B-Fox : (25 June 2019 - 06:09 PM)

So why does Cyberverse sound like . . . *that*?

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 04:05 PM)

Also, the theoretical new image would be a new compostion, it would just be individual bodies, or even just body parts, that are based on existing references by other creators, with the major caveat that there is more than one example for each reference so it's basically more like "following an established trend" than "copying someone's original creation".

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 04:03 PM)

Well, an homage is usually marked by a signature along the lines of "artist X after artist Y". I wasn't thinking about recreating something particularly memorable, just looking for reference images (just of a pose/perspective/layout) that looks like what I want, then finding more examples that just happen to look very similar, and it cannot be determined which version came "first".

@  ZakuConvoy : (25 June 2019 - 03:09 PM)

What you're describing is more an "homage" than plagiarism, really. I'm assuming you would be using different characters. It's basically like all the comic covers that homage the death of Supergirl cover from Crisis on Infinite Earths...but with different characters. It's not plagiarism, it's a reference. But if several artists have a memorable layout and are all using it, chances are it actually is referencing something memorably original.

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Would that still qualify as plagiarism? After all, it could be argued that what I've recreated isn't that original to begin with since several other people have supposedly had the same general idependently from each other.

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:54 PM)

And I were then to create a new image, not traced but maybe "swiped", except I wouldn't copy a specific source image, but merely recreate the basic pose and perspective shared between all of them...

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:52 PM)

*deleted*

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:49 PM)

And out of sheer coincidence, they all feature very similar ideas, concepts, poses and/or perspectives, supposedly with none of the original creators having copied from one of the others...

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:47 PM)

Assuming I were to find not one but two, three, four or even more source images, all of them by different artists, or by different photographers depicting different models...

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:45 PM)

Or is this what AVP meant when he said that condradictory streams formed the JG1 timeline?

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 02:25 PM)

I don't like that idea.

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 02:24 PM)

In Ask Vector Prime, it was mentioned that in the Beast Wars 2 universe, Convoys all have Energon Matrices and that when Optimus Primal from the Japanese Beast Wars stream was transported to the Beast Wars 2 stream, his history was subtly altered that he too possessed an Energon Matrix. What does this mean? That Beast Wars 2 is actually not canon to the Japanese Beast Wars?

@  MEDdMI : (24 June 2019 - 08:54 AM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 June 2019 - 09:24 PM)

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:23 PM)

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.

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?
