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.

@  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.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:58 PM)

Considering that Amazon is the new Walmart...

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

All of my best wishes go out to the brave women and men who have the balls (and ovaries) to go on strike at an Amazon facility in the US.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:38 PM)

Speaking of. Not only are we in Germany on strike today, but so is the fulfillment center in Shakopee, Minnesota!

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:34 PM)

Whenever she was summoned, she would arrive the next day?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (15 July 2019 - 12:32 PM)

The Scioli and Barber TF vs Joe series mentioned an Amazon Prime.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:22 PM)

Meanwhile I'm wondering why no one's come up with a fan character named "Amazon Prime". I mean, today IS her special day...

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 11:20 AM)

The Wallet-Eater.

@  RichardT1977 : (14 July 2019 - 07:28 PM)

No, but I did *read* it from you...

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 03:06 PM)

The first real long-term space outposts belong to the Illuminati, but you didn't hear that from me.

@  RichardT1977 : (14 July 2019 - 02:50 PM)

Er, in SF I mean.

@  RichardT1977 : (14 July 2019 - 02:50 PM)

Yeah, the first long-term manned space outposts have traditionally been mining colonies and the like.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 12:19 PM)

Okay, but......do they have to be willing to be sent up?

@  Rycochet : (14 July 2019 - 11:10 AM)

A king isn't a king without subjects.

@  Rycochet : (14 July 2019 - 11:09 AM)

The rich will never flee to space until there's enough an underclass up there so they have someone to do all the jobs they won't. Same reason seasteading never takes off.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 10:45 AM)

Do we have to let them come back?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 July 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Well, it's only going to be the ultra-rich who are able to go for the first couple decades at least, so I doubt anyone's going to care much

@  Nevermore : (14 July 2019 - 10:32 AM)

They could be standing on the surface of the moon, insist they're in the middle of a giant set, and take off their helmet to "prove" it.

@  Nevermore : (14 July 2019 - 10:31 AM)

Assuming these are genuinely convinced conspiracy morons and not just internet trolls, I would assume "not a lot".

@  Nevermore : (14 July 2019 - 10:31 AM)

I wonder how all these recent private and international space travel programs are going to affect those craziacs who insist that the Earth is flat/the moon landing was forged/outer space isn't real etc.

@  unluckiness : (14 July 2019 - 09:17 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2019 - 08:22 AM)

Talking about the show in chat is absolutely fine - posting spoilers on anything that's current season isn't tho

@  Arazyr : (13 July 2019 - 07:05 AM)

Yeah, I'm a season or so behind, so I would definitely appreciate no spoilers. 8^)

@  Sabrblade : (12 July 2019 - 10:21 PM)

Still, though, yeah, we do have a thread for the show. Best to use it.

@  Sabrblade : (12 July 2019 - 10:20 PM)

I think Nevermore once said he was a few episodes behind, so I don't think he's talking about tonight's new episode.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 July 2019 - 09:53 PM)

Yeah, you realize we have a designated thread for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., right?

@  MEDdMI : (12 July 2019 - 09:35 PM)

Not that I care about the show, but I'd be pretty annoyed about spoilers there. Please post it in a thread.

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 06:05 PM)

Okay, this is getting ridiculous. The opening of the episode was a deliberate play with clichés, but unfortunately, the rest of the episode that's played straight is also riddled with them...

Found both Agent Venom and Prototype Boba Fett at two seperate Walgreens back on the 6th. I was out hunting Walking Dead Pop figures for a friend's birthday next month and wasn't aware that these were released yet. Picked them up for two other friends.

My pre-order for 4inch Infinite Cyclops is in, and I'm just wondering if it's worth it. I don't really like that costume, as I liked the Cassaday version better. I like Bianchi's art, but his refresh costumes for Wolverine and Cyclops left me a bit cold. The huge X was a bit off, and the gold bands for Cyclops didn't work for me, and they're not the bands on the figure, like the costume is supposed to have. I also don't get why all the elements are gold, the bands, the piping, but the visor is still silver. It's from BBTS, and it's $13.99US. I already bought two of the Legends Cyclops, which are in the same Pile Of Loot. They're in the current Bachalo costume. It's very different for Cyclops, and I don't get how the costume works, as the X is usually not actually covering where his eyes would be. That aside, I like the simplicity, and how graphic it is, and I like it for being wildly different from anything he's worn, other than the silver-age costume later slightly updated by Cockrum. I think that was originally Werner Roth's design? He did a great job with Cyclops, but it's tempered by the monstrosity of his Angel costume. The Lee costume was just a slight tweak of that costume, and not as different as people cry about.

 

Sorry, rambling. Anyway. I didn't get the other Previews Cyclops, which was in this costume, because that wave was a total hug-up. They cancelled the best figure, Rogue, in my favourite costume of hers. They showed a ton of variants that they didn't make, and the ordering was hugged up. I think most people stayed away when it became evident what was going on. I don't regret missing anything from there. So, the Bachalo costume Cyclops was $12.99, on clearance, but even at $20 I'd have bought it.

 

So, is this Infinite one worth it? Is the body used a big step-up that makes this a must-buy, or is it just forgettable, and the first 4inch Cyclops I'll actually pass on.

 

Speaking of hug-ups, did anyone end up biting on the All-New X-Men/Silver Age X-Men Legends set? If so, was it worth it? It's the costumes I've always wanted in Legends, but the bodies used, and the allocation for new parts, left me a bit cold. Add in colour mismatches, which is kinda unacceptable when they're all supposed to be wearing the same thing, and the fact that they completely didn't at all do Iceman as he looked then (for those that wanted the silver-age team, and that's what i wanted, although I do get All-New X-Men, just haven't read it besides the first issue yet) was the final dealbreaker. But I'm open to change, if anyone vouches for it. I guess something might be better than nothing.

I wouldn't go so far as to vouch for it, as it has all the issues you mention and more (Angel's wings are embarrassingly cheap and keep an eye out for bad QC on Jean's gangly limbs). I'd only go so far as to say I bit the bullet, and while I wasn't blown out of the water, I also didn't suffer terribly from regret.

That's probably a better endorsement than I was expecting, to be honest. I hadn't paid much attention to Angel's wings. I assumed they'd be fine, as all Angel/Archangel wings have been pretty good in any Legends/Classics version. Thanks for pointing that out.

Finally found Agent Venom. I was a little worried. The first Walgreen's I went to had  the normal Spider-men and Electro, and I thought I was too late, but the second had 3 of them.

 

He's pretty much what I expected. Not technically the best Marvel Legends figure I own, but I love the character/identity too much to not get it.

 

I also picked up Hero Mashers Venom. He's a pretty neat classic Venom figure, but I don't see myself buying a bunch of these.

I saw Electro, movie Spider-man, and Superior Spider-man at both Walgreens I went to.

I don't know for sure if there's supposed to be more with them, or if Venom replaced all of the "swap" guys.

I'm pretty sure The Mechanic had arms.

 

So just Avengers 2 Cap and Hulk for Legends on display?

I'm not normally into movie figures, but I do kind of like that Captain America. If only he had head wings.

 

Am I seeing waist/torso joints on Brunnhilde and Miles? I thought they were getting rid of those.

 

edit: Looks like I got a bit mixed up. Valkyrie is also Legends.

She's looks all right, I wonder if they could have made her hair poseable?

One of the bigger news out of NYCC to me was that the Avengers line won't seem to have a 3.75 figure line, but be part of the "2.5 system" Hasbro introduced with Guardians of the Galaxy.

 

I'm still wondering, as with RiD, if Hasbro isn't doing a "staggered release" with its line, and saving larger priced items for the fall/Christmas when kids tend to get to get more toys.
