It would depend on whether or not you count DK, Wario and Yoshi as part of the Mario franchise or separate.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 02:55 AM)

You'd figure Fire Emblem would have enough characters in Smash. Kinda feels like there's more FE characters than Mario characters.

@  unluckiness : (16 June 2019 - 01:20 AM)

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.

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

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

My favourite Wolverine figure of the milennium is actually the 5-POA Tiger-Stripe Wolverine, from the recent solo film.

 

It looks so great the lack of articulation isn't important. I wished I'd stockpiled these, as damn they look good.

I like that one as well. I also snagged the modern costume repaint of that figure for the display on my work desk.

Thanks for the heads up, Onyx.  My second TRU hit pay dirt.  Stryfe is a little disappointing because he totally needs his unmasked Cable-clone head.  Still, I've always had a soft spot for Stryfe so no regrets there.

 

And I know that I'm currently liquidating my ML collection, but these guys are sticking around indefinitely.  

 

attachicon.gifIMG_4495.jpg

 

Why?  Because I'll always have a soft spot for the Blue/Gold days.

 

And these guys?  

 

attachicon.gifIMG_4496.jpg

 

Also sticking around.  (WHERE'S MY DAMN AVALANCHE, HASBRO?!? - also a new Toad would be great, too)

 

I wasn't sure if new Magneto was going to displace my old Toybiz one.  Toybiz has that great removable helmet going for it, but Hasbro's has more paint details and is less floppy.

 

Anyone want dibs on Cyclops and Storm before I send them off to eBay?

 

Toy Biz did do an Avalanche.

Yeah, I guess I should have qualified my statement a little better.  It's funny to think that the line that gave me a white costume Storm, a better Colossus (before the Marvel Select version came out), and an Iceman that didn't explode also delivered some really ugly releases like Juggernaut and that Avalanchey-thing.

Did anyone actually pick up that new unmasked Wolverine?

 

Am I nuts or is this the first ML toy since Hasbro brought them back that doesn't have an easy-to-pop-off ball-jointed head?

I still have the original unmasked Wolverine still sitting in the packaging of the Toybiz X-Men boxed set along side Magneto, too...

...so no.  I did not buy this new Wolverine.  Thank you, Hasbro, for not putting a Jubilee BAF piece with Wolverine.  $22 x 4 was painful enough.

Despite being 8 when ROM first appeared, I've never owned the toy. I've always loved the comic, and have debated over the years whether or not to actually try to get an original ROM figure, but this for the time being is my first time owning any toy representation of the character. WOOT!!

Hero Mashers brown costume Wolverine is actually pretty darn neat. Once it's out of the package and assembled, it's a really neat figure, with a lot of bulk. It looks great on the desk.

Due to Ursa's posting of the ROM Mighty Mugg, I thought this may be of use to fans of the character. A comic artist's original artwork of a ROM piece, done merely as a portfolio piece for both the artist and the inker (it was a gift for the inker), with no intention of being sold, has been stolen. He has no idea on when or where it was taken, only that it was 'within the last year', and he believes it was most likely a deliberate theft, of course. It's a VERY nice piece of art, so if any ROM fans are checking this, please give the info to the owner, so he can get his art back.

 

More details are via this Bleeding Cool link:

http://www.bleedingc...m-by-john-dell/

 

I'm mirroring the art itself, just in case it helps jog someone's memory. It's a nice piece, even if the extreme swivel looks a bit weird, even taking into account he's a robot whatever.

Oh goddamnit, I'm trying to *get rid* of Marvel Legends.  So why is it that as I get them out to sell, I come across this:

IMG_4635.jpg

 

I don't even like the Fantastic Four, but I'll be damned if I sell this set off now.  Though, I am a bit miffed that Hasbro used some sort of weird green plastic on She-Hulk, who now has some weird black splotching going on with her arms and legs.  Fortunately, I guess I can always put her dress on her and cover it up.

You wouldn't say that if you saw the black splotches that are there.  I was mortified when I took off her dress for that F4 display.

It's not even like paint or excess material.  Neither Goo-Gone nor paint thinner can even touch it.  It's literally in the green plastic.
