And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 June 2019 - 04:11 PM)

Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

@  unluckiness : (15 June 2019 - 09:36 AM)

DINNER

@  SG Roadbuster : (15 June 2019 - 09:36 AM)

@  SG Roadbuster : (15 June 2019 - 09:35 AM)

if we must have another zelda character, id want the king of red lion

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 10:38 PM)

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

they HAVE to put Travis Touchdown in at some point now, right???

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Right after Shaq.

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

I still want to find out how freezing people suspends them in midair

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Given Nintendo's relationship with Tecmo, I'm still waiting for Ryu Hyabusa

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 June 2019 - 07:19 PM)

I'm still waiting for Doomguy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I just started watching High School DxD (don't judge me...) and I caught on the Nintendo Treehouse some request Rias for Smash lol

@  Trpodeca : (11 June 2019 - 03:55 AM)

I just wish they'd release the Astro City paperback trades.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:31 AM)

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 05:31 PM)

yeah, i just need something small to plug into the wall. im not sure im taking my laptop on my trip later this year and i want a way to charge my stuff

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:04 PM)

They also have wall outlets with built-in USB in addition to the two regular plugs; I installed those around my place so I have USB ports everywhere

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:02 PM)

You might be able to get a generic adapter to use with it at Radio Shack if you know the appropriate voltages or whatever

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:01 PM)

It came with a USB cable with no AC adapter? A lot of lower priced electronics do that, presumably assuming that USB is pretty ubiquitous

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Yeah, must be, I guess.

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:59 PM)

maybe having bluetooth has something to do with it?

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

the one i got has an on/off button, and came with a usb to attach to my laptop to charge it. its this one https://www.walmart....ility/432985497

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 04:51 PM)

Selfie sticks have power? I thought they were to just hold the phone away from you

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:44 PM)

need some technical help.how do i charge my selfie stick without using my laptop? is there some kind of portable charger? i know it sounds like a dumb question, but i dont know very much about this stuff

@  MEDdMI : (08 June 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Different songs or overdosing don't work for me. My brain can play multiple songs at once. Best to do something else to distract me.

@  Xellos : (08 June 2019 - 05:36 PM)

Still, the worst is having the last song I hear before going into work being stuck in my head all day.

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Get a different song stuck in your head too. Let them battle for supremacy. Only the strong survive.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 03:53 PM)

Keep listening to it over and over until you got the lyrics memorized. By that point, it will start to fade out of your system.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

I've discovered the easiest cure for having a song stuck in your head is overdosing to the point of fatigue.

@  Steevy Maximus : (08 June 2019 - 12:27 PM)

Jedi Fallen Order sure does look a LOT like a Souls style game with Star Wars flavoring

@  Kalidor : (07 June 2019 - 06:18 PM)

I have a hard time believing that you speaking at length and with great detail is something you wouldn't be good at. Glad you had fun.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:51 PM)

Funny thing is I wasn't nervous at all. Might have helped that I was able to speak freely due to having assembled my speech from a lot of smaller segments I had previously told to my colleagues on the shopfloor, with a few punchlines added.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:49 PM)

Allegedly I did well. Lots of applause, and was told I was leagues beyond the guy who spoke before me (though that wasn't difficult, that guy was dry as a river on Mars).

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

So I volunteered to hold a small speech at our strike assembly today (lots of Amazon employees, plus some people from IKEA, Smyths toys and some other local retailers).

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 June 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Today Dolly the Sheep and Super Salmon, tomorrow Neo Sapiens. We're through the looking glass people.

@  Kalidor : (07 June 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Happy birthday @Pinkcolliebot

@  Pinkcolliebot : (07 June 2019 - 12:03 PM)

Today's My Birthday!!!

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 June 2019 - 03:16 AM)

Think how many copies of Optimus Prime's brain could fit on that.

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!

 

http://marveltoynews...-will-released/

 

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.
