I don't suppose the allspark has any criminal lawyers from Georgia. ;P

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

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.

@  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.

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.

Got my Wave 2 variants for Spidey Legends, and all is right with the world. (For about a day, until I start whining about the Wave 2 Cap Legends)

 

 

from SDCC 2013.

 

I wonder if we'll ever see this toy now, since it isn't in the final ML wave (which I ALSO wonder if we'll ever see) and the GOTG line is going for movie-accurate figures.

 

Could be a comic-themed GOTG set for SDCC. Which would be cool, other than for the fact that I'd have to find a way to get it.

Like they've said before, the chances of getting a figure when the tooling's done are pretty high, and Star Lord's tooling was already used for the AiM soldier, so there's still hope.


Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

I think the only thing stopping that is like, some archaic thinking on the part of companies (not sure if it's the toymakers, retailers or whomever). Marvel probably has enough female characters that people would buy.

What's disappointing is that it's probably an issue on all sides. And if it were to falter at all, they'd hold it up as the example rather than find the side factors that would have affected it.

2 Timothy 3:16,17 - "All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work."

2 Timothy 1:9,10 - "God, who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, and which now has been manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel."

Acts 17:30,31 - "The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent, because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead."

John 3:16,17 - "For God so loved the world,that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him."

Just found the second Cap wave today, halleluiah!

 

Got it from the same TRU I found the second Spidey wave at last week. And both of them on days that aren't their stated "delivery days", throwing my worldview into a tailspin. I now have no good excuse not to go on any given day.

 

BBTS preorders canceled, no first-wave doubles to have to figure out how to get rid of. And they were even discounted down to $13.99 for some reason. Not to tempt fate, but sometimes everything just works out.

Spidey and Cap toys are on discount this week at TRU. There's also a Rewards member discount though I don't know if the two stack.

Dear Toy Gods,

If at all possible, I would like the following 90s-era Marvel Universe figures:

Storm

Beast

Bishop

Pyro

Avalanche

Blob

 

B.N.

 

P.S. And if for some reason you really want to make my day, Morph from the X-Men cartoon.

Think I already know the answer to this, but how big were the old X-Men, Spiderman, Marvel etc. figures Toybiz did back in the day? I remember having a Morph figure from that line, might still have em somewhere.

They're like in between MU and ML.  Kind of like Ninja Turtles.

 

I'm just a sucker for all things X-Men Cartoon and Blue/Gold Team era.

It really bugs me that Classic White Storm rarely gets any love.  Hell, I had to buy from that X-Men off-shoot line in order to get a ML-scaled Classic Storm.

There've been 4 Storms (Original, Original variant, Original Mohawk, and Modern) released in MU, and not a single one of them is in her Gold Team outfit.

 

Also, I refuse to put Kitty-Cat Beast in that display.  He can stay with the rest of his Astonishing brethren.

Yeah I like most of the Blue and Gold era teams as well. 90's X-Men TAS was my intro into the X-Men and a lot of the costumes from that era (and this B/G) are what I always see X-Men wise. Storm though I always kinda liked the original costume, all that white was a little too blinding IMO, but hey it was good enough for the Gold team. Glad to see I'm not the only one who kinda "disliked" the cat Beast.form. I know Bendis gets a lot of heat, but I am at least thankful he "fixed" Beast into a more ape-ish form.
