Was that the one where he fights gamma mutant poodles?

@  unluckiness : (25 May 2019 - 03:14 AM)

The CG in that movie was fantastic. Shame Donkey and Fiona were written out of the movie though.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Don't worry, though. Ang Lee's Hulk has made it, so if physical media goes this year we can all die happy

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 01:12 AM)

It's not on 4K yet. Sure would be nice, though

@  Pennpenn : (25 May 2019 - 12:56 AM)

Probably, when I remember to.

@  Telly : (24 May 2019 - 11:11 PM)

you should buy it on bluray or 4k

@  Pennpenn : (24 May 2019 - 09:56 PM)

It's still not up on netflix. Bah!

Phyrexians are the bishie-est.

@  unluckiness : (24 May 2019 - 12:29 AM)

That's why they always wear long sleeved shirts and long pants

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2019 - 11:36 PM)

Everybody knows the most bishie thing about any bishie is his exposed sinew.

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2019 - 10:04 PM)

*looks up the humanoid slivers* ...really? People were calling those bishies?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Have they made a sliver planeswalker yet?

@  RichardT1977 : (23 May 2019 - 10:29 AM)

"DECOMPOSE!"

@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

Half of new york city (on tape.) is actually montreal.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

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

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

Wonder Festival announcements were a bit heavier on articulated figures than I expected.

Like, I can't say I expected to see this in 2019:

DP5TqrA.jpg

Robot model kits from Raijin-oh, which doesn't seem like a big name series:

DCgHDzV.jpg

9YX4yfG.jpg

There were still a bunch of not-so-surprising ones like more Kancolle.

Not sure if this guy was expected:

ePKhtdL.jpg

On a more personal note,

tsY4Vjp.jpg

VYYgoeS.jpg

Kinda hurts that they announced two Kadokawa LN protagonists voiced by Aoi Yuuki, but not the one I actually want.

I already listed the Fate ones in the Grand Order thread.

Isn't Kill la Kill being mined for nostalgia because Trigger are hard up for money?

I mean we're apparently getting 1/1 figurines of Akane and Rikka.

Hard up as in "We want to make it RAIN money" or actually having fallen on hard times? I doubt it's the latter, since Aniplex probably took the brunt of the FRANXX cost and they just had a hit with GRIDMAN.

 

The 1/1s almost always get made for series that capture the zeitgeist.

 

 

but not the one I actually want.

 

Nobody will ever give you Kino.

 

Actually though in terms of design I don't understand why anybody would want a Boogiepop figma.

The toy version of the Star☆Twinkle PreCure Rhythm Scope is just a giant kaleidoscope shaped thing that makes noises and plays bits of the ED. I genuinely thought it would also be a real kaleidoscope because it seems very fitting for the theme. I mean, it would be unique in the toy marketplace too. Nobody seems to make many kaleidoscopes anymore.

 

I've never been so disappointed in a toy I wasn't even going to get in my whole life.

A longtime friend of mine was in Japan last week and he found two more of these little cuties - one of which was a WonFes 2018 exclusive still being sold at an official Kotobukiya store. So now my Gourai squad has become a five-person team. :D

Keep filling out those NXEDGE surveys. Shortlist is interesting.

Various Gundam Sentinel designs, Rebuild Evas and some misc Gundams (Double X, Moon, V2, Crossbones, G-Self). Also I believe Dunbine, main of FRANXX and Ultraman. The Ultraman prototype they've shown looks good so here's hoping.

I keep suggesting stuff like Dai Zyujin, Metal Sonic, Grand Charion, Tetsujin 28 and Mazinger Z.

If NXEdges are the same height as Figuarts Mario, it may be the right line to bring Sonic characters into where they can maintain Sonic's series-accurate proportions without compromising durability.

Don't think Bandai would go for it, sadly. Sonic isn't nearly as popular in Japan as he is in the West. Series they've done so far.

 

Zeta Gundam (1)

Gundam Sentinel (2)

Gundam: Beltochika's Children (2)

Gundam SEED Destiny (3, 4 if you count the Strike Freedom repaint)

Gundam SEED Astray (3)

Gundam Unicorn (2)

Gundam 00 (3)

Crossbone Gundam (2)

Gundam IBO (3)

Mazinkaiser (1)

GaoGaiGar (1)

Megaman X (2)

Digimon (3)

Evangelion (4)

Rebuild of Evangelion (4)

Mashin Wataru (5)

Code Geass (1)

 

There is the factor that based on some info NXEDGE do well in Hong Kong, with Bandai apparently now targeting that region more. The Wataru focus also has something to do with Wataru not selling as well as hoped in RD form so they shunted it over to a cheaper line.

 

To be honest with the line being focused on mecha/robots/androids I figured Metal Sonic would fit in well with the line's style. Too many Sonic figures look ugly when they add articulation but Metal is already designed with it in mind. Give him maybe jet engine and laser effect parts and he could look pretty sweet on a base hovering.

MegaHouse Acti-builder Gridman complete set arrived....oh dear.

 

There are two versions of this being released, one by MegaHouse and the other by GoodSmile. I have several MH fixed pose figurines so was willing to give this a shot. The results are not impressive. Gridman himself has fairly muddy paint and the support vehicles have a thinly applied black wash which comes off as half done rather than accenting the detail. You can also combine the support vehicles into their non-Gridman combination but the Goodsmile one looks way better. Some assembly is required, mostly removing panels and cables from kit runners.

 

The box has a flap which reveals a window view of the set. You also get some trading cards of the 5 characters but these are tiny one sided things printed on cheap card and really not worth keeping

Anyone know any good proxy services? There's an exclusive Dragon Ball Adverge set based on the Broly movie coming from P-Bandai. Tried numerous times asking Nippon Yasan if they'll take orders for it. The pre-order page on Bandai's end is live but N-Y are being very unhelpful. Given there's a limited order window, hoping there's other services which can actually help.
