It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2019 - 10:30 AM)

O never hated it, the whole thing was an Indiana Jones movie. I didn't care for the CGI, but that's just nature of the beast.

@  Paladin : (19 July 2019 - 07:58 AM)

sidebar- has enough time passed that we can stop irrationally hating "Crystal Skull" yet?

@  Telly : (18 July 2019 - 09:18 PM)

after 38 years and i dont know how many viewings, today is the first time i noticed indiana jones doesnt use a revolver in the bar fight in raiders...

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  Locoman : (18 July 2019 - 05:11 PM)

isn't that just Modern Family

@  Sabrblade : (18 July 2019 - 12:10 PM)

All this awesome SDCC news is really making these boards run slowly.

@  Shrug : (16 July 2019 - 06:07 PM)

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 05:43 PM)

@  Patch : (16 July 2019 - 05:39 PM)

@  Patch : (16 July 2019 - 05:39 PM)

It's techno-organic corn

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:26 PM)

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.

I suppose. Certainly not worth the original price. Ten dollars less would have been nice but $40 is about as good as it was going to get I suppose.

 

It's way the hell too small to be an actual Helicarrier in my mind unless you put some really small toy jets and such on it. But for me it works in my headcanon as a "High-Altitude Mobile Deployment Platform" (aka a "Minicarrier") for troop transport and insertion and such.

 

I have no clue where the hell I'm going to put this thing. :doh

Finally spotted some of the Spidey Legends at a TRU today. Of course, all that was left were a pair of Amazing and Superior Spideys. :( And below them were about ten Captain Americas.

 

...Someone remind me again why these new Legends cases continue to have multiples of the 'main' hero that will clog shelves once they hit saturation quicker than the others? :angry Then again, the nearby Target never got rid of their Constrictors and Klaws, so the stores around here are probably really afraid of second-stringer characters by now...

Because toy companies (and retailers) continue to think that the main, big name heroes sell better than they actually do.

I just picked up the 3.75" Winter Soldier line Super-Soldier Cap. I promtly removed his shield from his arm, tossed the figure into the Bin of No Return™ and gave the shield to Marvel Universe Commander Rogers.

 

Yep. Looks much better on him. :thumbsup

I'm so weak.  :D  I found the complete Spider-Man ML wave today at Target and had to bite.  I left Amazing Spidey and Electro, since they are not going to be switched out in future cases.  Bought the necessities, though.  Even though I am not a huge fan of the Beetle character, I am hard pressed to find a figure that stands out as my favorite.  

 

Beetle is an impressive, freaky looking insect warrior.  I love the wings that attach to the back, and he can get in some great flying poses.  Black Cat continues Hasbro's recent running streak of great looking female figures.  She has some limits in articulation due to the side of her hips and the hair they gave her, but she is absolutely beautiful.  Superior Spider-Man is the best Spidey figure ever.  Period.  If the lines were cleaner on his face, he would be perfect.  This seams to be an issue with all Superior Spider-Man figures.  Carnage, like Superior Spidey, is the best version ever made.  It is like he just popped out of the comics, ready for mayhem and slaughter.

 

I plan to get all the variants, as well as Amazing Spider-Man, but I am trying to spread things out a bit.  Not sure I really care for Electro, but I have a preference for comic look figures and normally avoid movie style figures.  I might as well finish Ultimate Green Goblin, though...

 

Pardon the pics below.  My camera phone is crappy.  :/

I can't buy that Superior Spidey. The lines are just a damn mess and I DO NOT enjoy painting webs. Plus eff SpOck.

The Amazing figure might be my favorite 6inch Spidey to date.

Indeed, that's a nice figure.

 

The whole Captain America line was up this morning, but now the grunts are gone:

I foolishly thought they would stick around until this evening.  At least the rest are there!

I found the Spider-man Legends at my target. The only one missing was Black Cat.(Weird, right?)

I could only afford to pick up Otto and Carnage, but I might go back and get movie Spider-man and Ultimate Beetle eventually.

 

Carnage is basically everything he needs to be. Sure he could have used some alternate weapon hands, but I'm not sure how realistic it would be to expect something like that.

 

Superior Spider-man is.. good, but I kind of wish that they either included his gauntlets and backpack(with or without the legs), or did the first version of the suit instead.

As is I think he's a little too bare.

 

I'm still not too great at posing these guys. I'm used to Japanese stuff.

 

edit: Next month I plan on buying the two existing waves of the iron Man 3 Legends.

Is this a good idea? That Iron Monger looks pretty sweet.

 

In general I want to try and keep my Marvel collection to just Spider and Iron people. If only so I don't get too overwhelmed.

Ugh. I hate scalpers in my area.

 

All I want is Now Cap or Red Skull. That's all I ask for.


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

My local Target finally got these lines in. The had both Caps, Hydra, AIM, Zemo, Superior and Amazing Spideys, Black Cat, Beetle, and Electro.

 

I very nearly walked out with 7 figures, but through supreme willpower and self control I didn't get any of them. I threw in my lot with 3.75" stuff, and that's the scale I need to stick to. :(

Solidarity my brother!  

 

I'm fighting the same battle.  I HAD the whole wave in my Hasbro cart yesterday morning, but self-control won.  I mean, I already have Baron Zemo, and an AIM goon (and plenty of 'Caps) in 3.75" why do I need them at 6"?

 

... Plus I kinda want to save my Marvel Monies for Guardians of the Galaxy.  I think I'm going to fall hard for those toys.
