Because that line always cracks me up.

Does she at least say "AAAAAAAH! AFTER TEN THOUSAND YEARS, I'M FREE! IT'S TIME TO CONQUER EARTH!"

Well, at least Rita's still over-the-top, then...

@  MEDdMI : (30 March 2017 - 03:01 PM)

My friend said it tried to be inspiring and serious, but Rita was too campy and some of the messages might not be good for kids.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 March 2017 - 02:27 PM)

Anyone been to the theater to see Power Rangers? How is it?

@  Evac : (30 March 2017 - 02:24 PM)

Meh, even if it was a real continuation it wouldn't be the same without Tony Jay.

@  Rycochet : (30 March 2017 - 02:05 PM)

I don't want to see it be a trainwreck and crash and burn, because if it does that's probably it for ReBoot in any form for another decade or even longer. I'm just frustrated as ReBoot is one of the few things I like as much as Transformers.

@  Boomhauer : (30 March 2017 - 01:50 PM)

Fun fact: one of the actors for the main kids lied on his resume that he knew how to skate. He actualy doesn't. They had to choose between reshooting all his scenes with somebody else, getting a stunt or... just not having him skate at all.

@  Boomhauer : (30 March 2017 - 01:49 PM)

A close friend of mine has been working on that show for almost a year now. He's told me lots of things that filled me with excitement about how baffled the internet will be about it. It's gonna be a great trainwreck.

@  Rycochet : (30 March 2017 - 12:37 PM)

Given all the advancements in computing since the end of the original series, how they've spread through every facet of our lives they could tell some great stories within the existing ReBoot universe... Instead they're going for Power Rangers meets Tron.

@  Evac : (30 March 2017 - 12:21 PM)

That's... That's not ReBoot. That's... That's a bad Tron rip-off.

@  Rycochet : (30 March 2017 - 12:18 PM)

Well, the ReBoot revival sounds positively dire.

@  Lightbright : (28 March 2017 - 03:26 PM)

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 02:20 PM)

They were all in Tahiti that day, oh, and those days too, but they totally know someone who was there.

@  Broadside : (28 March 2017 - 01:37 PM)

Supposedly one of Mainframe's friends died during AHM, so presumably they were THERE, just, like, off-panel.

@  Verity Carlo : (28 March 2017 - 12:12 PM)

Additionally, Skywatch was rushed; it took them 23 years to learn how to control Ravage and Laserbeak, and they didn't even have a year to try and get the Dynobots under control.

@  Verity Carlo : (28 March 2017 - 11:58 AM)

Presumably dealing with other problems-The military was already routed to NYC before the blackout. And a counter terrorism unit is not something you have deal with an alien menace-it was Skywatch's purview, and even then, their problems started occurring only a year after Joes formation.

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 11:57 AM)

I think the only way I would buy a Gi-Joe comic would be if they were paired up with the monsterbots.

@  Evac : (28 March 2017 - 11:55 AM)

Nah, the Monsterbots had that covered.

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 11:43 AM)

Where were they when poop was hitting the fan with the Machination? You've got giant robot monsters battling in the open with an army of human controlled robot weapons... Maaaaybe that's the kind of thing they should have intervened in given how Skywatch failed.

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 March 2017 - 11:37 AM)

There was a major coordinated military presence outside New York during AHM. Where was the elite special task force?

@  Verity Carlo : (28 March 2017 - 11:24 AM)

Well there was also Soundwave disrupting all communications so no one could coordinate and also Starscream killed the President, and everyone else on Air Force One, who were probably some of the few who actually knew about their existence

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 11:21 AM)

If your country is being torn apart by aliens, you use every tool at your disposal and two years before AHM still puts them in existance around the time of the Machination who were very much the kind of problem they should have been dealing with.

@  Verity Carlo : (28 March 2017 - 11:10 AM)

IDW Joe was a top secret anti-terrorism unit made up of specialists. Not really "repelling an invasion force" material, plus they were formed two years before AHM

@  unluckiness : (28 March 2017 - 10:58 AM)

The Avengers were all Skrulls or something at the time

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 March 2017 - 10:45 AM)

It happened just like Spidey and SHIELD turned up in the original G1 comics.

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 March 2017 - 10:35 AM)

I try to forget that Avengers thing ever happened. I mean, aside from a throwaway line in Spotlight: Ramjet, it never comes up again anyway.

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 10:29 AM)

They would have been #1 on the Presidents speed dial to deal with the problems caused by Skywatch losing control of the Transformers in their care.

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 March 2017 - 10:28 AM)

Don't forget the Avengers. Megatron must have culled metahumans before AHM. Picture him personally tearing Spider-man in two.

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 March 2017 - 10:18 AM)

You'd think they would've intervened the time Megatron took over New York.

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 08:25 AM)

I really don't care for Gi-Joe being retconned into sharing the same universe as Transformers, There have been too many Joe free events in America for them to have existed all along.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (28 March 2017 - 07:53 AM)

And now he gets to be a member of hugging G.I. Joe.

@  unluckiness : (28 March 2017 - 06:46 AM)

I don't think anyone was ever supposed to like him

@  Broadside : (28 March 2017 - 06:36 AM)

To be fair, Costa at least had the self-awareness to turn Spike into a villain when he realised that nobody liked him.

@  Jalaguy : (28 March 2017 - 05:17 AM)

And the "lol idgaf" approach to making itself part of the existing universe is stupid. They could have pivoted to be more G1-cartoon-y without throwing so much worldbuilding out the window for no reason.

My DCUC Wave 19 arrived last week. Very cool sculpts all around, with the exception of Stargirl, who is even worse in person. She's a bit of a disaster. I'm going to try and fix her abdomen and face, but so far, I've just made her like a chainsaw sculpture.

Thanks for starting the thread! I considered it the other day, but stopped for some reason.



As for wave 19, it will ship to me as soon as I change all my shipping info over to the new house. Kinda sad Stargirl looks like such a freak. My daughter really wants me to buy one for her...

STRIPE makes the whole wave worth it. I know little of the character, but I love the figure.

As for Stargirl, she looks like this: http://thefwoosh.com...rt-i#more-17971

Only her torso was even more messed up on mine. It's molded in flesh colored plastic, then painted blue, then flesh paint on top, and it looked awful. The casting quality was really crummy too. Add the bizzaro-muffin-top, jokerface, and kinda odd proportions of the small female DC buck, and it's a really tough figure to love.

I'd be all for the rehash of BB but needs some wings. Larfleeze is cool but don't the different Lanterns of the different corps have funky looking handles. SB Prime looks like he needs another head resculpt. And whos the Plas wannabe? Looks too serious to be Plastic Man.

As a club member, I am very happy not to be receiving any of these.

I agree with Daith, Superboy has a pinhead. Larfleez looks worse then his DC Direct version. Plastic Man comes from a mini I didn't read, and which sounds awful.

BB goes fairly high on ebay so I can't really fault that one.

Brainiac needed Koko, so I gave him Koko:


And by mistake an online store sent me the wrong figure and let me keep it free, so I put it to use making that timeless Jim Lee character that's bound to be forever remembered by the common consciousness as one of the greatest characters ever to see print: Deathblow!

I know some Wildstorm characters were folded in the DCnU... has he?
Regardless, he does have his uses:

And today, I found out Mattel did a single-carded version of the poseable DCIH Batman included in the many Public Enemies multipacks.

But this one sports a nicer bat-sigil, a nicer skintone on the face AND a nicer contrast between the gray and the black. And it comes with a spiffy button.
So naturally, best I can figure, it's hella rare:

Terry looks quite odd done in the mainstream DC style, imho.

I have seen the 12-inch Movie Hal Jordan, and man, that is one ugly toy. Light-up feature actually looks quite cool, but it is just overall not as articulated as a toy of such height should be.

I know I am probably the only one collecting the line, but... any news of that supposed third Mattycollector GL Movie Masters toy? Still hoping for Stel, or Hannu...

It's something I've noticed more and more of late, but it seems toy companies have now decided that the bigger the toy, the lesser the articulation.

Hasbro's been doing the same with its larger Marvel toys.

Thanks to finding a capeless Robin in a DCIH lot I needed to fill gaps in my collection, I managed to make a human-form Beast Boy!
Took a few liberties with the color scheme since the details varied depending on the era/medium.

The Bat-family keeps it real in the Batcave!

Hopefully I can find good base parts for Oracle so she can join them.


As an aside, I love this little playset. It doesn't take up much space because everything closes up into a small case, and it has tons of neat details. I'll have to do some mods, like removing the sticker of Bruce Wayne's action figure from the rotating wall and painting the bat-gadgets on the wall and the workbench.
