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.

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)

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)

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)

@  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.

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:00 AM)

For example, the English "J" sound consists of sounds that exist in German: Basically, it's just a "d" sound followed by a very soft "sh". Yet there are many Germans who insist on calling the late King of Pop "Michael Checkson".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 05:58 AM)

I'm talking about names that should pe easily pronouncable if you just bothered to pay attention to how it's done correctly instead of insisting on "I speak X language and this is how I prounounce it!"

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 05:57 AM)

I'm not even talking about foreign names that have sounds that don't exist in the speaker's language.

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 05:56 AM)

Something that really irks me is when people are persistently ignorant about the correct pronunciation of foreign names, especially when it's people they either admire or frequently interact with on a daily basis.

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?
