@  Paladin : (26 May 2020 - 08:10 PM)

it's too hugging hot today.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I'll agree with you on that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

*Figured -_-

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I fugured

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:18 AM)

*9th

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 06:50 AM)

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

Although the TV edits of Robocop do contain some hilarity

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:41 PM)

I can't think of any instance where sanitizing a film is a good thing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 06:42 PM)

.... and thats a good thing? :doh

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 May 2020 - 06:39 PM)

I'm watching Predator on Starz! That means it has all the language and gore uncensored!

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 04:23 PM)

*grabs popcorn*

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 12:49 PM)

*watching everyone argue* O^O

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

I guess I'm a Star Wars collector now.
FD8cMv7.jpg
I mean, I've had Grievous and some critters for ages now, but I recently got Sidious and Vader out of weird dumb mix of dislike of the new films and re-interest in the old stuff, then I bought the two bug-ish bounty hunters because I found a $20 on the ground and thought why the hell not. And now I'm scouring Rebel Scum to see what else there is (as it turns out, a lot).

My local Walmart had 6" Solo Han, Qi'ra, and Landon for only $4. So I had to get Qi'ra.

Man - I always thought the Tatooine Skiff was a great little vehicle and then Hasbro up and redid it (yeah - it's been out for like a month but Pulse only just shipped mine :D ).

Yup. I ordered two right out of the gate.

 

My only minor complaint is the stands are so tall (mostly necessary due to the little "fin spire" things at the back) - I need to figure out a way to elevate the sail barge because now the skiffs sit about halfway between the upper and lower decks.

Big Lucasfilm reveal of toys and merchandise for next week.  Lots of Pops and Star Wars Black series, but Daisy Ridley did get to show off the Galaxy of Adventures figure.

So watching Force Friday and looking over the various reveals...

Are non-lego small toy spaceships not a thing anymore? No more micro machines or those little hot wheels die cast ships?

If thats the case, I think my Star Wars collecting days are over. :(

I would say so. It's why it seems Mattel is still putting out Ships as a branch of the Hot Wheels line last knew and Micro Machines aren't to be seen.

I think Mattel has discovered the same complication that Hasbro did before with the Titaniums. My theory is production costs are difficult to recuperate without being able to release multiple repaints that people aren't really interested in buying (and they haven't been doing it as long, so they haven't built up a pool like Hasbro had).

 

I did see Mattel is rereleasing a number of ships painted in silver - commemorative editions, one for each film - and they each come with a piece to build a small Death Star.

 

Prior to that, the last new ships I've seen were three of the ships from Resistance.

Cue the death of the line and collector freak outs.
 
But, that new Galaxy of Adventure style is what Star Wars has needed for a while: a refreshing change.  At $10, the articulation is ASTOUNDING.  The stylization is well done (definitely evoking that Infinity vibe) and I'm eager to see what Hasbro does with this new format.  I've seen complaints about vehicles....but we aren't exactly swimming in them as is and the market trend I see is kids are buying fewer action figures, and they tend to focus on "core characters".  I'm curious how much the Episode 9 figures will cut in the articulation department (the Endgame basic figures are passively articulated).
 
I'm hoping we see a generic "Marvel" line like this next year.  To me, these mega brands NEED a venue to keep classic characters and concepts in circulation.  GoA was on the right track with its character selections, but tripped up by using existing tools at an inflated price.  This new format I think will really help breathe some life into the Star Wars toy segment.


Incredibly, incredibly late replying to this, but there actually was a line similar to this called Disney Toy Box. It was Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars characters all together in that same, unified Disney Infinity art style, just as action figures instead of Toys-to-Life figurines. The only problem with it was that, as far as I know, it was exclusive to Disney Stores.

Didn't pick any up today, but I did see them out and I'm definitely interested in them. Smaller than I'd expected, but otherwise they seem rad.

I went to Walmart after work intending to just pick up a little figure or something because I like Star Wars.

There was literally a hole in the toy section where the Star Wars stuff used to be: Completely cleaned out.

Tried Target and they had stuff - not a lot but stuff. I ended up with a Funko Jetrooper to keep the stormtrooper I have at work company.
