" his weakness to fire." i can see the battle now: "you may have beat me to a bloody pulp, broken both my legs and shattered my spine, but i have a LIT MATCH!! whatre you gonna do NOW???"

許されざる者よ!

@  Paladin : (30 April 2017 - 06:35 PM)

he's also addicted to Oreos. so, two weaknesses. :p

@  Foffy : (30 April 2017 - 06:34 PM)

I remember Justice League left out his eye beams and played down his strength a bit, which I presume was done to help deifferentiate him from Superman.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 06:32 PM)

There's a reason why he's considered one of the most powerful of the JLA. Only one they can depend on to defeat him is Plastic Man, due to his brain's malleability.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:27 PM)

Wow, reading about all his powers, he's actually kind of overpowered aside from his weakness to fire.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:23 PM)

Martian Manhunter can disguise himself as anyone, shrink, grow, become invisible, stretch out his limbs, pop out extra arms, change his arms into blades, do all sorts of psychic stuff...

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:22 PM)

Which is kind of dumb. Aside from being a super-strong flying alien with eye beams that wears a cape and has super senses, there's a lot of differences.

@  Paladin : (30 April 2017 - 06:18 PM)

the higher-ups at WB apparently consider Martian Manhunter redundant- a "green Superman." that''s suposedly why hes left out.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:16 PM)

I wouldn't mind seeing them put Steel in one of the DCEU movies, as long as they're better than the last three.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:12 PM)

Really, he should be one of the easiest JL members to cast. You can take any guy of any race who's muscular enough for the role. It'd probably piss off the purists who want everything to be as close to the comics as possible, but you can't do anything without pissing them off.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Foffy's right. I mean, they don't have to keep Martian Manhunter white. He can disguise himself as any race.

@  Foffy : (30 April 2017 - 06:08 PM)

@Paladin I feel like Martian Manhunter would probably be played by a black actor anyway, though? I mean, his VAs in both the DCAU and The Batman were african american. Also, movies are a separate medium from comics.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:08 PM)

He's, like, the least interesting Earth GL.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:08 PM)

Hal Jordan is honestly a really boring character.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 06:04 PM)

I mean, I don't hate Aquaman or Hal Jordan, but I like Martian Manhunter a lot more.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:02 PM)

Meh, if I were then I would have just used John Stewart as Green Lantern, but I'd also have used Wally West instead of Barry Allen.

@  Paladin : (30 April 2017 - 05:59 PM)

because then WB has a reason/excuse to actually cast a black guy in the movie.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:52 PM)

Nah, just stick him on a Wildstorm title, great idea.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:52 PM)

Like, it's nice have Cybog getting his dues, but you could've have had him replaced Aquaman, not the guy who's literally been on every incarnation of the team and is it's heart and soul.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:51 PM)

Why on the New 52, Martian Manhunter isn't one of the finding JLA members.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:50 PM)

You know what I'll never understand?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (30 April 2017 - 05:01 PM)

There are shops with lots of pre-owned stuff like Mandarake, so it doesn't necessarily need to be retail, depending on where he's going.

@  Msol : (30 April 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Every other MP I want I have. I wonder how cheap Inferno is at retail...

@  Msol : (30 April 2017 - 04:19 PM)

I wonder if Star Saber is still around at retail. I don't know what it all looks like over there.

@  Foffy : (30 April 2017 - 04:05 PM)

Ask them to bring back a real live japanese person for you.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (30 April 2017 - 04:01 PM)

I'd say "any TF you don't already have" but I guess that's too general.

@  Msol : (30 April 2017 - 03:46 PM)

So hey I've got a buddy going to Japan for a vacation. What would be a good thing for him to bring back for me on the cheap? I've already got MP-36 so I'm not sure what else would worthwile...

@  Foffy : (30 April 2017 - 12:11 PM)

*Clicks on link* Ooh, that is a lovely webcomic, thank you. I'm going to have to bookmark this.

You pathetic, putrid punk! You're as rancid as a Redead in a landfill full of junk, Dedede-EE! You miserable end-boss, you make me sick! And you can't even keep a pink puffball out of your hair!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (29 April 2017 - 08:16 PM)

they don't kill. they eat half of your face, and you're left with a hideous tumor where the barnacle is.

@  Locoman : (29 April 2017 - 03:49 PM)

Perhaps the barnacle, consumed with guilt at what he'd done, took his own life after killing everyone

@  Lazy Garou : (29 April 2017 - 02:28 PM)

parasitic barnacles are the stuff of nightmares

@  MEDdMI : (29 April 2017 - 01:39 PM)

But barnacles don't have- *checks* "The main sense of barnacles appears to be touch, with the hairs on the limbs being especially sensitive. The adult also has a single eye, although this is probably only capable of sensing the difference between light and dark.[4]This eye is derived from the primarynaupliar eye." Huh.

@  ▲ndrusi : (29 April 2017 - 01:29 PM)

He looked in a mirror

@  Evac : (29 April 2017 - 01:26 PM)

He was killed by his own ugliness. Kind of a "Hoist by His Own Petard" thing.

@  MEDdMI : (29 April 2017 - 01:12 PM)

How did the barnacle get killed if everyone died from his ugliness?

So last night I had this dream where I was in a store, and there were two TFs I had never seen or heard of. One was Deluxe DotM Soundwave, with green accents on his robot parts, inexplicably called "Que". Box-art was still the same, no effort made to make the toothy Decepticon maw any more benevolent-looking.

Another was "Suburban", who I guess was supposed to be Crowbar, but didn't look like him. He had a different word in every sentence of his bio bolded, and every one of them could have been his name but it was so random that I couldn't figure out which one it was supposed to be.

What kinds of toy dreams have y'all had? Which ones do you hope and pray stay figments of your imagination and never come anywhere near the shelves?

I did actually have a dream once where I was checking the price of a new Fortress Maximus (about the size of Primus) in Universe/Generations styled packaging. Pretty detailed dream, such as the fact that it was, like I said, about Primus sized, the head turned into another robot but it was NOT a double headmaster, and there was a lot more sculpted detail on it, like adding a lot of minicon ports.

I'd love to see that in RL somehow.

I have nightmares about the day I passed up getting the Bomber Megatron and Starscream 2 pack at Canadian tire because "megatron wasn't a jet." ... coulda had a 'thunderclash' too but nope "I was a big boy then" who'd only just bought G2 Devestator for the irony of having the disposable income to just walk in and buy all 6 Constructicons.

Spank me for the 1st of only 2 times in my life BAW... I'll show you parents... 'can't get them all. pick one HA!'

yeah should'a got the ones at Canadian tire instead of the Woolworth's going out of business sale 3 dollar constructicons

Coincidentally, just the other night I had a dream that I was watching a new Transformers movie on the big screen. It was set between Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon.

I'm not sure if that counts as a nightmare or not.

Had the latest in a long series of "finding knockoffs amidst the real things" dreams. Movie Starscream with Prime Starscream's proportions, and a "Prime" Skywarp who was Movie Starscream with Stealth Iron Man's colors.

I once dreamt of a Deluxe F-22 Classics Starscream with a wing sword like Armada Starscream, but he had Prime Starscream-ish colors.

I also dreamt of a Samurai prowl toy before it was even announced, and dreamt of a Lugnut Supreme-like toy before the finale of TFA.

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.

I dreamt of power core combiner Soundwave where Ravage becomes the body, Rumble/Frenzy and Laserbeak/Buzzsaw become the legs, then after that comes Soundblaster where Ratbat is the body, Slugfest, Overkill, Squawktalk and Beastbox become limbs.

This one... Clear memories of walking right past both this and Thunderclash Prime, don't know what the deal was- how they got there... but I know I picked up Megatron and Starscream and said ...Nope This is not something Megatron would do with Starscream. and then Picking up the thunderclash box and looking -for a long time- at the box art, and I remember thinking "who are they trying to fool with this? there is no Way that Cab section turns into that robot.

A couple of years ago I dreamt I saw a new line with minimalist packaging - mostly white with black text and a little red, not unlike the MUJI Lego craft sets, that was part of a Hasbro environmental initiative.

The one I took off the peg was a Scout class Ramhorn, an Autobot packaged in alt-mode which was a bright red robotic triceratops. There was also a black and clear plastic Decepticon hovercraft.

Disappointed when I woke up, loved the packaging and Ramhorn seemed pretty cool.

I constantly dream about finding BW and Universe stuff on the racks alongside whatever the current line is, gathering the ones I want and heading to the register only to wake up.

Dreamt of a carded Basic-sized Optimus Primal and a Voyagers BM Silverbolt once and pretty sure there was a new Nightbeat and Scorponok in there, too.

Ok I was shoping online for Fs and came to a mom and pop online toy store where there when tons of lose G1s but I dint order anything but I noticed they talk about a connetor for the MM combiners like Six Turbo that allowed the random guy pluged in the back to be placed better
And that certan stored where still selling the connector so off I went to serch
Fast forward and I guess the serch was still on and I was at a newly hugey remodeled covenance store known around heres as Buc'ees and they sometime carry toys so I went looking but there toy section had moved and well I had managed to get to look in the back room
And come to find out they where a distrabution node for a lot of online retailers
Includeing the online mom and pop toy shop there was a section of shelf crammed with G1s
The firs I spoted was a Rodimus but I went digging but a lot of it I already owned
Now fustration sets in....
