Forgive me for being the last one aboard the bus that came and went after the previous bus... but can anyone direct me to the comic based on UW Megatronia?

Why do you want to remove it? Just in the way or something?

I wonder if there's any way to remove Destiny 2 from the Battlenet launcher entirely?

You can usually adjust that in the Settings Menu.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 August 2017 - 04:29 PM)

TVTropes is a useful resource. Why is it that people on other sites make fun of using TVTropes terminology?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 August 2017 - 04:21 PM)

The TVTropes page even specifically mentions that it's a wrestling term.

@  JasperGunner... : (12 August 2017 - 04:09 PM)

I thought it was a wrestling term

@  RichardT1977 : (12 August 2017 - 04:09 PM)

"Heel-face-turn"? Did you just use a TVTropes term?

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:52 PM)

So each of them thinks the other one is still evil, resulting in a fight.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:51 PM)

A and B know each other from their times as villains, but neither is aware of the other's heel-face-turn.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:51 PM)

Eventually, a new threat leads both villains A and B into the enemy lair.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:50 PM)

Elswehere, former villain B has also given up his plans for world domination and decided to become a part-time ally of the good guys.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:49 PM)

Former villain A has abandoned his evil ways and decided to become an anti-hero of sorts.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:49 PM)

Where has this plot been done before:

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 August 2017 - 01:52 PM)

Until you get the taxes for it.

@  Evac : (12 August 2017 - 01:02 PM)

@  Evac : (10 August 2017 - 02:13 PM)

I think they both sound like Mr. Burns

@  Bass X0 : (10 August 2017 - 02:03 PM)

In your opinion, does Starscream sound like Cobra Commander, or does Cobra Commander sound like Starscream? (Yes, I know they're the same voice actor)

@  Diecast : (10 August 2017 - 01:28 PM)

MASK spiritual successor Vor-Tech had that intelligent car, right? Have a Transformer interact with something like that.

I think selling every toy I own would get me 1/10th of a down payment on a refrigerator box under a bridge.

I'm really happy I don't care about Wave 20 of DCUC.

Also a Reign of Superman wave popped up for pre-orders, but isn't really happening, says Mattel. Curses, I wanted another DCSH Brainiac.

It is interesting to note that after reading this post, I went back to the tab I opened around 1 when I placed my order today. It said the LOSH pack was "almost gone". Doesn't say that anymore. Hmm...

I just got that single-packed DCIH super-poseable Batman, and it is awesome. Not only are the colors and Bat-sigil nicer, but they also retooled the cape so it doesn't rise up over the neck as much.
Pure win.

Heh, I was just about to post this. I love them! Well, most of them. Really digging Supes and Flash, and RR is nice. Only kinda "meh" on Supergirl, but since my daughter just saw this pic and appeared to be just as enthused as I am, I figure we will get one or 2 of her as well.

I was wondering how they would do the New 52 suits, considering all the panel lines they have. Looks like those details are being ignored. I guess I am ok with that.

That's bumming me out. I haven't even been into DCUC very long, and I'm already sick of seeing nearly-unmodified bucks.

I mean, the price has been hiked to almost $20 each, there's no CnC piece anymore, less articulation then ever, no accessories, and very limited new parts in each figure. The value proposition is just in the toilet.

It makes me wonder if Warner/DC/whoever is charging Mattel a stupid-high fee on the license, or maybe Mattel is just that cheap, or they're sick of competing with DC Direct, or full of jealousy that Hasbro is getting stupid-rich off of the Marvel license, who knows?

Well, Hasbro did do the smart thing by killing off Marvel Legends when it did. They weren't selling the way they were expected to sell, and the profit margin was much less, I would imagine. Way less plastic and packaging is used for MU, and really the biggest mistake I can see Mattel making was not trying to be as competitive in that size class as it was with the 6" figures.

That being said, there are still tons of places that don't stock MU, and they warm the pegs just as much as they move, depending on what sells when. As excited as the fandom is to have ML back, I wonder how well they will perform, and how long they can keep their prices lower than the DC line.

What I would like to see is both lines be successful, as much as it would kill my wallet. icon-ironhide.gif

It's not for me!
The panel lines look downright stupid, and ignoring Superman's new Space Go-Go Boots helps the look some. I mean it still looks utterly ridiculous with the high collar and the pointy ends of the sleeves (how does he hide THOSE under his Clark Kent guise?) but it's a mild improvement.

As for Flash, why did they keep him as Barry Allen if they were just going to make him look as much like Wally West as possible?

Not trying to start an argument here, but how are those boots stupid? Is it not realistic to think that his boots would overlap the spandex pant legs just a bit? All in all, it seems like not only a plausible detail of the costume, but also a very minor thing to find fault in. I guess I just don't get it.

Edit: Going to leave the above comments but add something I have noticed now that Detour has me looking at the details more. Mattel has reused the same boots on Red Robin as Flash. They have the same dip in the front, which may be one of the other elements that I guess you guys don't like. Can't say I'm super keen about them being used on a character that I am not sure has ever had them.

As for Flash, I'll still be getting out the green paints, but I thought about going a step further and swapping some Barry Allen lower legs to get the boots right. I'd have the remove the little wings, but I may give it a try, if I decide the boots bother me enough to do anything once I have him.
