We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:38 AM)

Would you like some dressing to go with your word salad?

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

yes; it now goes "shit piss hug *BLEEP* ^$@^ motherhuger **** turd fart encyclopedia & Socialism."

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:24 AM)

This is an American site, but isn't that unnecessarily severe language? IIRC it's one of the top four offensive pejoratives to English people

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Though with the luck and caliber of leaders we've had of late in the darkest timeline, maybe it's too much to hope for.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM)

Just like democracy, it's not perfect but better than the present alternatives. Capitalism as it's practiced today won't be able to weather the coming wave of automation, though. Best to plan for it and hope for a gentle transition rather than the aforementioned collapse

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Capitalism is the worst amiright? Sent from my iPhone

@  Vexwing : (15 July 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Because the collapse is gonna be just great.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 PM)

Let's hope this is late stage and we're on the cusp of something better.

@  abates : (15 July 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Late stage capitalism is the absolute best.

@  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.

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.

 

 

Same here.  I guess either I will have to get lucky enough to find one, or just do without.

 

Better believe I got my set of 6 Avengers ordered. :thumbsup

If Target deigns to carry this series, I hope it gets a new DPCI. That should make everyone in the first wave, at least, easier to find.

Spider Man Infinite running change figures exist!

Already selling, loose, from Hong Kong, so it's likely they've been produced, and will show up somewhere.

 

I think Boomerang will join my DCUC collection.

I'm not sure how I feel about that Toxin. I'm not a huge fan of Eddie Brock's Toxin design in the first place, and this figure doesn't even seem like it captures it all that well. Although it does look better than the initial pictures we saw of it. I think the limbs could still be a little darker.

 

However I am a fan of the Toxin Symbiote, and the idea of Hasbro making figures of Symbiotes other than Venom and Carnage. Hopefully we get a few more eventually.

(Even if a lot of the previous hosts were killed off/replaced in the comics in recent years.)

Oh Hasbro "lets make stuff, but never sell it."

 

There's a landfill somewhere with US cases of Animated Thundercracker, Goldfire Gimlock, Mudbuster Bulkhead, and Blackout.  I just know it.

I had quit reading Spidey with OMD so I just now tried to back track and figure out the Toxin thing... then I found Anti-Venom and none of that made a great deal of sense. Ugh... symbiotes suck.


On the actual toy front... it would be great if one day they released a Spidey whose webs didn't suck... other than Sensational. Those toys were cool.

I think I'm looking forward to Spider-girl more than Black Cat. Partly because I prefer action figures of designs with covered eyes.

I haven't read much with her in it, but she seem enjoyable enough as a character.

Oh man, if that's how feel about Anti-Venom then I bet you'll love Venom's new(ish) teenage sidekick, Mania.

I'm a Symbiote fan and even I think it's kind of silly, but I still like her for some reason.

Why is THAT happening?

She was introduced last year only a couple issues before the current Venom series ended. She hasn't shown up anywhere else, so we don't really know what she's up to at the moment.

 

Spoiler

 

Despite being ridiculous, I do hope her story gets resolved in a satisfying way at some point, and she doesn't just end up dead in a gutter somewhere in a decade.

I honestly think the Red Hulk, x-23, Venom, Ghost Rider thing was the culmination of all the things I dislike about certain comic fans and comics in general. I couldn't believe it was real when I first saw the image...

Speaking of which, is there any merch of the Red Venom Hulk Rider of Vengeance(or whatever it's called)?

If not then there should. That thing looks like it was made to be a statue.

 

I get that all of that sounds like the worst thing ever(So does "Venom, but with GUNS!"), but it really didn't seem that bad while I was reading it.

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.


I think I've read somewhere that the set was supposed to be like some sort of "pre-release" for the characters (maybe like the SDCC Bruticus set?), so perhaps there was supposed to be retail versions for at least some of those Thunderbolts. Then again, I'm not sure where I read this, so I don't know if it's true in any way whatsoever.

I actually came in here to tell that target canada seems to be liquidating marvel stock. 5.25 for basic figs and 13.99 for three packs. I spent forty bucks and got seven new figs!

 

Edit: most of them are really cool, but baron zemo does not hold his weapons at all. With the shape of his hands, its entirely impossible. There is simply too much room between palm and finger.

Aren't comics awesome?

I think they only way to have made it better/worse would have been to somehow have worked X-23's claws into the design.

Finally saw some of the new Cap Legends figures at a TRU today; naturally, only multiples of the two Cap figures were left on the peg. :p Sadly, still no luck finding Black Cat from the Spidey Legends. :(
