@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 01:33 PM)

So, welcome to all retail, everywhere.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:24 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]

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 July 2019 - 01:03 PM)

At least I can use Amazon without losing the ability to breath or step in dog shit.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:58 PM)

Considering that Amazon is the new Walmart...

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

All of my best wishes go out to the brave women and men who have the balls (and ovaries) to go on strike at an Amazon facility in the US.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:38 PM)

Speaking of. Not only are we in Germany on strike today, but so is the fulfillment center in Shakopee, Minnesota!

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 12:36 PM)

Overnight delivery is the right of all sentient beings.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:34 PM)

(and is it sexist of me to assume that a character named "Amazon Prime" would be feminine?)

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:34 PM)

Whenever she was summoned, she would arrive the next day?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (15 July 2019 - 12:32 PM)

The Scioli and Barber TF vs Joe series mentioned an Amazon Prime.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:22 PM)

Meanwhile I'm wondering why no one's come up with a fan character named "Amazon Prime". I mean, today IS her special day...

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 11:20 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 07:33 PM)

Ssshh, you'll get us both "dealt with".

@  RichardT1977 : (14 July 2019 - 07:28 PM)

No, but I did *read* it from you...

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 03:06 PM)

The first real long-term space outposts belong to the Illuminati, but you didn't hear that from me.

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

Er, in SF I mean.

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

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

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 12:19 PM)

Okay, but......do they have to be willing to be sent up?

@  Rycochet : (14 July 2019 - 11:10 AM)

A king isn't a king without subjects.

@  Rycochet : (14 July 2019 - 11:09 AM)

The rich will never flee to space until there's enough an underclass up there so they have someone to do all the jobs they won't. Same reason seasteading never takes off.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 10:45 AM)

Do we have to let them come back?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 July 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Well, it's only going to be the ultra-rich who are able to go for the first couple decades at least, so I doubt anyone's going to care much

@  Nevermore : (14 July 2019 - 10:32 AM)

They could be standing on the surface of the moon, insist they're in the middle of a giant set, and take off their helmet to "prove" it.

@  Nevermore : (14 July 2019 - 10:31 AM)

Assuming these are genuinely convinced conspiracy morons and not just internet trolls, I would assume "not a lot".

@  Nevermore : (14 July 2019 - 10:31 AM)

I wonder how all these recent private and international space travel programs are going to affect those craziacs who insist that the Earth is flat/the moon landing was forged/outer space isn't real etc.

Have you considered a trapdoor spike pit?

@  unluckiness : (14 July 2019 - 09:17 AM)

It's not the worst gift but not evryone may want one given rising fuel prices.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2019 - 08:22 AM)

Is a fire pit too literal for a house warming gift?

@  Noideaforaname : (14 July 2019 - 07:43 AM)

Welp, just realized everyone's been talking about Halle BAILEY this week, not BERRY. (so that's why i haven't been seeing CatFishWoman memes...)

Casting call for TF Roll Out Shorts! https://www.behindth...y/casting-call/

@  Kalidor : (13 July 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Talking about the show in chat is absolutely fine - posting spoilers on anything that's current season isn't tho

@  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...

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:45 PM)

Also, why are they so pissed that Deke built a start-up company? What would they have preferred - him continuing being a freeloader?

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:44 PM)

But now everyone keeps picking up the idiot ball. Geez.

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:43 PM)

That's what I always loved about the show - creative ways to play with tropes and subvert them by making the characters smarter than your typical fictional character doofus.

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:43 PM)

Why is everyone suddenly genre-blind?

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Wasn't it just last season when Mack was so super-genre-savvy that he insisted on NOT SPLITTING UP?

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:42 PM)

And again, too many characters acting like idiots.

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:41 PM)

Seriously, Agents of SHIELD? Now you're straight ripping off "Alien"?

Edit:  Man, Thor 2 got an incredibly feeble toy line.  One wave, and sort of hard to find.

 

Agreed. I was incredible disappointed at the showing for this. Wolverine, Iron Man, Cap, and Spider-Man get friggin' 3.75" AND 6" lines in support and Thor got... what... one wave of 5 or 6 3.75" inch figures that I've never seen anywhere other than TRU on one occasion?

 

Yeah, God forbid we get any decent ML-scale figures of Asgardian goodness. :angry :angry :angry

Completely agreed.  And to top it off, the Wolverine line didn't even come out until that movie was long out of theaters and Thor was just getting started.

I hope Guardians of the Galaxy gets its own Legends line. Maybe slip in some other Cosmic characters with them.(and Agent Venom?)

Although including comic characters might be a bit harder since they have a whole team to make figures of.

By all indications, GG is getting a massive toy push, including ML.  

 

At least Wolverine got a legends line, sadly, it was Diamond Exclusive.  THor didn't even get that.  I really think someone at Marvel has it in for the brand.  Maybe Thor 1 was a big sales flop for them?

So, I dragged out the marvel universe stuff to throw up on the display shelf. Thematically I went with "avengers" so anyone who was at any point an avenger, or based on an anvenger character. Oh, and deadpool hiding behind the clap trap.

 

So my nephew came over, and stood up on the bed and took a look at the shelf. Not only does he WANT my marvel universe toys... he SPECIFICALLY wanted the three closest to him. No, he did not touch them, but those are the ones he wants. Not the ones on my shelf, but he wants THOSE figures for himself.


Per Nick Nemesis's Suggestion: I hate everything.

Considering I can walk into my local TRU right now and see Thor 1 figs I assume that's the case.

 

Kinda like how GL:TAS didn't get a toyline because you still had GL Movie stuff cluttering the pegs.

Well I went looking for Cap today and gave the Target guy the wrong DPCI... and ended up with Spidey and Superior Spider-Man. Superior sucked with terrible painted on webs and I hate the character. I kept Spidey and still ended up with a Cap.

I really like the new ASM mold, except for the shoulders. Every time I try to pose his arms above his head, they press inward like he's doing bicep curls.

And FINALLY, interchangeable hands. No longer must we choose between a Spidey who can shoot web and one who can punch.

I've been to several Targets now over the past week or so, and either none of them have gotten the Spidey Legends cases in yet, or I keep missing them to other collectors/scalpers. I never thought cherry-picking would be so hard to do. :(

Also the Spidey and Cap sets don't have a place on the floor yet. You have to show up with DPCIs to get them from the back.

Yeah, I do have the DCPIs saved on my phone, but in every Target I've gone to the Spidey series always shows up 'out of stock'.

 

And one more thing: managed to make a trip to a Wal-Mart today, and they have more of those Superhero Mashers; sets smaller than the ones I've seen at TRU, with the figures getting only one accessory each. The selection so far is Captain America, Hawkeye, Spider-Man and Dr. Doom (who doesn't seem to have any accessories as far as I could tell - budget was probably taken by his ginormous cape :D ).

I don't even like the Bendis series, but I'll get me the hell out of some original X-Men. I've seen several Cap figures on the shelf at Target...or I guess I should more accurately say I've seen WWII Cap on shelves several times. Doubtless left over from people back-room fishing.

Saw that. Meh. I feel like I should care as an old school Marvel fan but it just gives me mental flashbacks to the Toybiz set which was kinda terrible.

I'd be interested to see the characters in their current Voltron suits though. Just for variety.

-ZacWilliam, of course they'd have to be 4inch for me to be interested in buying anyway...

After playing with Cap and Spidey I am pretty happy with the current stat of Legneds (except the price). The articulation is great and they even brought back tilting ankles. BUENO!

Apropos of nothing, I was going to repaint Bleeding-Edge IM from the first wave of IM3 Legends into Now Iron Man, but I think he's slated for GotG Legends.

Avengers 3.75" Wave 1 is up for pre-order on BBTS. The case asortment has two of everyone except Wasp who is one per case, and Iron Man who is three per case. Idiots. :rolleyes

 

I pre-ordered my set of 6 so I'm all set. :thumbsup

 

The MU revision case is also up, but I'm not buying an entire case just in the hopes that I might get a Northstar.

I'm pretty sure they're 6 inch bodies. I think.

Sooo glad to see that pic today. I've wanted an ML 05 set since Legends began. I was then frustrated to get that nice First Class two-pack in MU, but we never got the rest.

I'm just so happy it's not the new outfits. Those things are terrible. I'm still clueless on why the hell that look was chosen. Yuck.

I also quite liked the old 5 pack for the time. I can finally retire mine now that this set is coming, I'm assuming SDCC, so yay, it'll probably be a $200 purchase for me, best case scenario.

That seems like a completely sensible SDCC set.

 

I didn't understand last years.  Tons of new tooling and in-demand characters, that very few people get a shot at for a normal price.

In addition: Target clearancing almost all of last year's marvel toys.   Did you really want a 5POA silver samurai?  Of course you did, and now it's $4!

 

Other sale fun: Iron Man Legends showing up at Ross stores for $7, looks like wave 2 only for now.
