They make a lot of pills for that.

@  Nevermore : (19 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

I got the results of the test back. I definitely have no sense of humor.

@  Paladin : (18 June 2019 - 05:59 PM)

so anyway how is your sex life?

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 June 2019 - 10:50 AM)

Only if the customer reviews give it all high marks.

@  Patch : (18 June 2019 - 04:42 AM)

Are they going to call it "I-Did-Nawtflix?"

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 12:48 AM)

I see, so what the world needs is a Tommy Wiseau streaming service.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 11:02 PM)

Well, Conan did start the trend that resulted in a wave of Barbarian films in the mid to late 80s

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2019 - 10:57 PM)

I keep wanting to read Corman as Conan

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:29 PM)

There needs to be some streaming service that caters to connoisseurs of schlock. Otherwise, a huge part of our cultural history will be wiped away. While many of these films are available on blu-ray, with more coming out each month, it's good they're also available for the streaming crowd.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:18 PM)

Corman did make an impressive number of barbarian films back in the day. If impressive is the word

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:11 PM)

I mean, where else are you going to see the entire Roger Corman barbarian fantasy library (legally) for free?

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:09 PM)

Oh Tubi TV, you are a haven for terrible films. Netflix, Hulu and Crackle all push for mainstream appeal and prestige, you got the guts to have ready access to dregs even the SyFy channel wouldn't air

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

Also you have Bayonetta and a bunch of Fire Emblem people.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

...I mean, Tales character. Probably up to/for it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 01:26 PM)

But what if I need to kill a god? Or several of them?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

Kratos is allowed, but only the one from Tales of Symphonia

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 10:56 AM)

So no Kratos?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:42 AM)

In any case I'd rather have another Fire Emblem character than another character from a PlayStation exclusive game who teeeeeechnically was in a spinoff.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:39 AM)

Kong had his name on the games first, but Mario was the protagonist first. It's debatable.

@  Rycochet : (17 June 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Wouldn't Mario be the one spun off from the Donkey Kong franchise, given that Kong was first?

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 05:19 AM)

I would count Wario and Yoshi, but not DK (might be because I wasn't even aware DK was spun off from the Mario franchise until I was in my mid-20s, but whatever)

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:13 AM)

But to be fair, Corrin is the only one I particularly dislike and it's really more boredom due to their blandness as characters

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:09 AM)

It would depend on whether or not you count DK, Wario and Yoshi as part of the Mario franchise or separate. Scratch that, there are more Mario characters even with just the mushroom symbol people but it's a close call.

@  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.

@  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.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 08:09 AM)

Pipe dream Smash entry: The Prince from the Katamari series. :D

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 06:35 AM)

The space/time around them gets frozen too! ....or something.

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 06:01 AM)

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

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

I have having to watch a video to find out why someone wanted me to watch the video

@  Nevermore : (11 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

I remember when the TPB for The Dark Age 2 was delayed for an entire year...

@  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!

Images from the slideshow. Obviously, only vintage card art shown for the FSS entrants.

 

Membership figure is an Arctic Dr. Mindbender, supposedly with a brand-new head sculpt.

 

There's also going to be a Wave Crusher sub available to members, with a Sub-Viper pilot (repaint of Repulsor, perhaps?)

Oh my, I just noticed.

 

 

Slice is going to have a new head based on the original one, rather than the fencing mask used on POC Samurai Snake-Eyes and Retaliation's black Red Ninja.

Neat!

Yeah, on one hand it's kind of nice to see all those characters in their "v1" looks. On the other hand, a good portion of the audience for them "settled" for the NF versions a year back.

 

Personally, I have easy customs of most of them and most of the other stuff, and I'm just not interested in Alpine (although between the rarity of the 25th version and the quality of the Kwinn buck, I can't blame them). I dunno, there's a LOT of this that's just feeling like the easiest possible straight-up no-effort repaints, so I hope it's more than that in practice.

 

Mindbender I'm a bit ambivalent on. I don't really need a "variant" of him, and if we get another I'd much prefer the VvV look. However a new head is just a great idea in general and he's another one of those characters a lot of people missed out on, so he'll likely move some memberships.

On one hand I thought the point of an exclusive Club was so they wouldn't have to do stupid reuses of major characters (Arctic Mindbender) like Hasbro does.

 

On the other hand, it's pretty similar to stuff I LOVE like AM Thundercracker or G2 Ramjet so maybe Joe fans are similarly pumped for Arcticbender.

No, see, now if it was something based on Battle Corps Mindbender that'd be closer to AM Thundercracker or G2 Ramjet. ;)

Via General's Joes:

 

Brian from the Collectors Club did say that all of these Night Force figures won’t necessarily be straight repaints, there will possibly be different gear or parts adjustments.

 

While I'm still not sure about putting half a con set into the FSS like this, I'm happy to hear that they're putting effort into maintaining the exclusivity of the con set and upping the incentive for everyone.

If they swap out the chest and chestgear on Spearhead for some that don't royally suck I will be very happy.

I had an odd dream about the Joe franchise last night. 

 

In the dream, it was discovered that somebody (can't remember if it was Hasbro or a licensee like Funskool) secretly made a number of very limited-run (500 pieces at the extreme) figures for distribution via some sort of "private" channel (can't remember if it was an early fan club or something of that nature). All of the figures were made on the cheap, with almost all of them either being Franken-Joes of some sort or minor repaints. 

 

I specifically recall:

 

*A rendition of the 1984 Storm Shadow figure with an ink wash.

 

*A "tactical" version of a Joe (Beach-Head?) made using that figure's original head and the body of Repeater.

 

*A "tactical" version of another Joe (I recall Roadblock *and* Duke for some reason) made using the figure's head(s) and the body of Spearhead. 

 

*An original character made using the head of the 1989 Snake-Eyes figure and the body of Windmill (but with Ghostrider's colors). The character was a "ninja pilot" and would have been the operator of a proposed but cancelled Joe helicopter (the helicopter would have been a knock-off of Switchblade from the MASK line known as the "Jack-knife"). 

 

 

I'm almost morbidly curious to see some of these figures done up in real-life now.

I'm not 100% sure yet but going by non-stock photos of the figure proper and my own toys, as well as other people observing the same thing...

 

 

It looks like Eco-Force Flint's supposedly "new" head is just the same DJ Cotrona Flint head from Retaliation, with a lighter skin tone.

I found a Night Viper at TRU today. No other new figures, but he was the only one I was missing at the moment (I've given up on Renegades Storm Shadow).

That was a nice surprise.

My TRU had two cases of the Joe Colton/Lady Jaye wave. My Five Below had no Joes. I only buy them for trade fodder anyway, but still disappointing. 

 

Did find a vintage GIJoe-style Mortal Kombat Reptile and some o-ring Robotech figures at a vintage shop downtown, though. The bad part about that was that I had to go downtown. Ugh. I hate the city. Stupid one-way streets and meter parking crap.
