yeah, I've got a few others that I need to check out/get removed. The nose one is small but annoying since I hit it every time I blow my nose.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Try to get a histopath examination if it isn't too expensive over there. It's probably just a mole but I'd think certainty would be better.

@  MEDdMI : (24 June 2019 - 07:59 AM)

@unluckiness I know, plan to get it removed but gotta get an appt first

So who wants to hear about this mole on my nose that I keep scratching open

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 June 2019 - 09:24 PM)

Yeah, it's kind of defeating the purpose of making political discussions more restricted if you're just gonna go at it elsewhere on this site.

The citizens resisted by buying up all the town's beer reserves so the Nazis would have to stay sober the entire time.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:28 PM)

Meanwhile, congratulations civil resistance, part 2: So a group of Nazis were holding one of their Good Old Times Reenactment festivals in a small East German town.

The mayoral elections of Istanbul are considered to be a key indicator for the political climate in the entire country.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:24 PM)

This time, it was a landslide victory for the opposition's candidate.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:23 PM)

After president Erdogan had a court revoke the results of the mayoral election of Istanbul after the opposition party's candidate had won by a small margin, the election was repeated today.

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.

It's a great accessory.

Did you get it from the 50th Anniversary Baroness or the Rise of Cobra Baroness?

 

 

It can attach to the ROC Cobra Gunship for max funs.

50th Anniversary.

I think I'm probably done with my IDW supervillain shelf now, unless a 3.75-inch Miles Mayhem comes into existence someday, but I am kinda tempted to find a hooded Cobra Commander and give his head and gloves to the Baroness...

I'm still toying with whether I want to remove his beard paint and give him his comic-accurate moustache.

I dunno if it's widely known, but he's actually got the little skinny moustache sculpted onto him, with the full beard just painted over the top. Apparently Hasbro changed their mind about his facial hair last minute!

Hey! Hey guys!  We got to dig up this corpse because Hasbro's being weird at the licensing expo in Las Vegas.

 

An image popped up on Social Media showing that Hasbro has a walled off room for GI Joe.  They don't have that for any other brand.

https://twitter.com/...395881790496768

 

Former Hasbro employee Bobby Vala has been quite negative in his response, indicating his view that it's probably Hasbro trying to license out GI Joe like Mattel has done with MOTU or the recent agreement with Wicked Cool Toys making new Micro Machines.

 

My view is that Hasbro DOES have something big for GI Joe.  I don't think they'd have a big showing at a Licensing show if they were trying to pass it off to someone else.  My feeling is that Hasbro is still expecting the movie to get made (even with the delay.  Hell, still haven't heard ANYTHING about Micronauts progress), and if their work on Transformers and Power Rangers are any indication, they may well be hoping to have a multifaceted approach with more than just a movie line.  Maybe some sort of "evergreen" concept for licensing?

 

Guess we'll see in a few months.

What are you talking about?  Hasbro owned Kenner.  There was no licensing involved, just handing it off to a different branch.  You know, the same branch that did GI Joe Extreme.

I'm hard pressed to see that happening, since it requires someone having enough interest in Joe to pay Hasbro to use the name.

Super quick LBC. I picked up one of the Fortnite figs on sale and used him as a base for my new Joe character (head from Angelfire).
 
Guneet "Gunny" Singh 
PMOS:  Advanced Foreign Security Forces Advisor 
AMOS:   Infantry Unit Leader 
Birthplace: Yuba City, CA    Grade: E-7
 
Growing up in Yuba City, Guneet always admired the stories of his grandfather Bhagat Singh, who was one of the first Sikhs to serve in the US military. Wanting to follow in his footsteps, Guneet joined the Marine Corps straight out of high school, eventually earning the rank of Gunnery Sgt before being recruited for the JOE team from FORECON after an impressive joint mission. 
 
"Gunny'll jump out of anything, into anywhere, and swim, hike or crawl however far he needs to all with a smile on his face. He wears me out!" - Gung-ho
