Think of it positively, maybe your face just has optional no-slip surfaces

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 January 2020 - 05:38 PM)

I have dyspraxia so use a electric trimmer, it's never smooth. NEVER!

@  Benbot : (27 January 2020 - 12:52 PM)

don't you hate it when you shave but miss a whisker and it bugs you all day long and you try to yank it out but you can't because it's too short to get a hold of but your hand keeps finding it whenever you touch your face?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 January 2020 - 11:17 PM)

Twitter's revamp is so dumb. Nowadays, even when I am logged out of my account, right-clicking an image on Google Chrome won't let me access a URL to easily get the image's full size. That functionality was so useful!

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 January 2020 - 10:01 PM)

But when was the last time you saw a major retailer (since TRU) actually allot shelf space for a Transformers Titan? Or the Vintage Collection Poe X-Wing? There's clearly some sort of disparity between "girls" and "boys" toys that give companies justification to create $100+ items in the girls segment in FAR greater frequency than in boys.

@  fourteenwings : (25 January 2020 - 12:56 AM)

"how expensive they were" Tell that to L.O.L. O.M.G. and the $129 Amazing Surprise (I mean I guess when it comes to the toy aisle Power Rangers isn't a juggernaut like L.O.L.)

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:18 PM)

I think the big reason we didn't see the actual combining Zords at retail was because of how expensive they were. It would cost $100 to get enough of them to make a Megazord, $160+ if you want the Ultrazord. Or parents could just get the dang Ultrazord for $40 even if it didn't combine.

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

Because they are "kids toys" not "collector toys"

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 03:27 PM)

1) I don't have Target. 2) can't go into my walmart. I'm surprised Hasbro won't sell the toys on Pulse

@  Bass X0 : (24 January 2020 - 02:43 PM)

I dreamt my phone was ringing and woke up to answer it.

@  Sabrblade : (24 January 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The Lightning Collection figures, the smaller normal-sized Beast Morphers Ranger/enemy/Beast-Bot figures, the role-play morpher and weapon toys, and the simplistic non-combining megazord toys have all been very easy to find at various Targets and Walmarts. It's only been the actual combining Beast Morphers zord toys (which are bizarrely being sold individually this time) that have been hard to find in stores.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:49 PM)

Thought I do question Hasbro's almost reluctance to have the toys available anywhere.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 01:44 PM)

i've been trying to sell mine for weeks...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I hadn't opened mine yet, but from what I've seen, the general agreement is that the Beast Morpher zords are much better than Bandais.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I'm guessing if they're going to do anything on the level of Legacy Zords, it's being discussed behind NDAs at Toy Fair

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 January 2020 - 10:38 AM)

Lightning Collection is good, and they're taking their sweet time on making Zords that are better than Bandai's Zords.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 10:34 AM)

So, what's the general PR fandom consensus of the Hasbro run of PR so far? I pretty much stepped out of the community after I got the Bandai Legacy zords I wanted.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 08:46 AM)

that would require someone to BUY Hasbro PR toys...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 07:17 AM)

Well hopefully see some cool PR stuff. Wish BBTS sold Hasbro PR toys.

@  fourteenwings : (24 January 2020 - 07:01 AM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 06:32 AM)

When is NY TF?

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:43 PM)

I don't know about Hasbro's general policy but I know everybody was on lockdown for Frozen II, which included both LEGO and Hasbro. Plus, I'm guessing everybody is holding off PR for NY Toy Fair? Overall, it's best to remember that Toy Fairs are for buyers, not fans.

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:41 PM)

LEGO has been doing this for ages, including sending cease and desists when outlets get leaked images.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:42 PM)

And then they ended up selling off the brand, so I guess I wasn't the only one.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:41 PM)

Last time a toy brand I followed tightened down on toy fair and all the invited guests posted glowing reviews of what they saw, I ended up being disappointed as heck.

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:34 PM)

JediNews UK basically said they got a walkthrough of Lego's showcase...but were legally bound to NOT talk about anything, much less take pics.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:24 PM)

I wondered why I had seen basically nothing newsworthy from the event

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:14 PM)

Word is that Hasbro and Lego have their UK Toy Fair stuff on MAJOR lockdown. Full NDAs and everything.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 09:28 PM)

Seeing people say the $0.99 + $20 shipping item is cheaper than the $19.99 + free shipping item and getting tons of likes for it... I just don't know anymore.

@  Telly : (23 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 January 2020 - 08:42 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 January 2020 - 06:58 PM)

Bold of you all to assume we won't wipe ourselves out in 50 years.

@  Benbot : (22 January 2020 - 04:27 PM)

There will be no UBI, people will just live in a ditch while they celebrate owning the libs.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2020 - 03:24 PM)

In 50 years, retail will be dead because all stores are staffless fully automated operations controlled by Amazon. The UBI will be less than a fifth of what it actually costs to live after two decades of cuts and.a steadfast refusal to match inflation.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 January 2020 - 02:55 PM)

In fifty years retail will be a thing of the past through robots, printers and Universal Basic Income.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (21 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

Big retailers just don't want money anymore, so let's not give them any,

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:12 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 January 2020 - 03:38 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 10:19 AM)

All retail is basically the same.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2020 - 10:00 AM)

Walmart just needs to go bankrupt already.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:19 AM)

They didn't put the 35th anniversary stuff back out until after new year. I'm no retail expert, but I feel like having stock on the shelf is better than the back. Especially toys at christmas time.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Yeah, my local walmart took away the 35th anniversary endcap weeks before Christmas and left the Transformer section empty well past Christmas.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:44 AM)

Mine only has the 35th Anniversary Voyagers. A whole lot of them.

@  Telly : (19 January 2020 - 11:35 PM)

just be happy your walmart even stocks voyagers. mine doesnt

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 January 2020 - 08:53 PM)

Figures that Walmart finally restocks Studio Voyagers...with Wave ONE

Isn't the 'pot leaf' (lmao!) a symbol of royalty or something? I didn't play SONIC THE HEDGEHOG or whatever the game so I don't know what the design is for but I remember Scourge wearing the leaf as a crown during hedgehog havoc (Amy, Rob, Silver, Metal, Rosy etc free for all when Scourge used anarchy beryls). I assumed it was an established authority/king symbol. I don't recall if King Shadow or King Sonic wore one in 30 years later.

Nope, just bad design. Like every other thing in Sonic 2006.

Got Sonic #236 today.

HIGHLIGHT to view:
There's a main story, and a backup.

Mainstory has the Freedom Fighters separating into two teams. Rotor leads one while Sonic leads the other.

Sonic's team is Team Fighters. Consists of him, Amy, and Tails.

They stop the invasion of Furville, and we learn half of Mobians are capable of being roboticized, and half are immune.

Backup focuses on Rotor's team, Team Freedom.

Consists of himself, Big, Cream, Cheese, and a rebuilt Heavy and Bomb.

Heavy and Bomb are the originals' personality cores in new bodies based on the games/the new models Eggman used.

I love it how Amy Rose isn't afraid to slap Sonic around. I know she's no longer lovesick when he's around anymore but it's still great to see. Team Fighters doesn't sound like a cool name. Great that the T-pup is in action. Who's that other guy from Furville? I'm not sure what kind of animal he is.

Rotor's back, nice, but I'm still not liking the suit. It's awesome that Heavy and Bomb are back in action. Yay for AI's! Big is a surprise and Cream too, all people. I'm glad that Deadly Cuddles is finally being used. Still waiting for Naugus to show how good he can be, if he will. The people ARE under his protection after all. Hey, where's Geoffrey?

Despite the cool stuff, felt like an in between issue. Gimme more!

It's two or three weeks behind but...

Dang it, I only got my copy of Mega Man 12 from the store yesterday and I lent to a friend so I can't properly review it right now. From what I can remember though...

I LOVED the beginning with the Light bots in action! Time Man doing his thing (my 11 year old nephew asked if he was a girl because of his colors and I told him Decepticons were also violet purple, lol). Fire Man fought fire with fire!!! He dispersed the mecha dragon's flames with his own? Can he do that?

I wasn't sure but was all of Elec Man's lower legs burned off? It was always obscured. Was it something Archie couldn't print so it had to be inferred? It LOOKED like he only had stumps. Dang, good job soldier. Awesome that Fire Man was the one who lead the way to his rescue; too bad we didn't get to see his leadership skills.

The Items were awesome but two item 2's? Only item 1 could be used multiple times for the impossible jump as a stairway. Haha, would have been hilarious if one of the Light Bot grabbed hold of item 3 since it's trademark is to bounce around until it touches a wall. That wouldn't be canon tho. And why couldn't any of the Light bots create the items? Is it only Mega Man who's capable of manifesting the items?

I hope Time and Oil Man aren't paired up together again. They were both riding with Guts Man. Just because they were active together, doesn't mean they have to hang out. This is unless the other six treat them differently, like second class bots cuz they're not quite in their generation, in which case, there's a story there. Oil Man was already bantering with Ice Man and working with Fire Man though. I'd like to see Time Man hang out with Elec Man more too, both being snooty snobbish guys, lmao!

On the boss run, the camera bots from the walls were missed. I imagine they would have left Time Man there, slowing them as much as he can to let the others through. Very cool to have the Light Bots deal with them. Though it kinda made sense to use Bomb Man to help Mega Man with the Crash signal device whatevers, I kinda wished it was another guy (cuz Bomb's not quite a fave). Very apt to call that place a maze. That boss battle was a puzzle for sure!

Metal Blades! Awesome to have them mentioned as the universal weapon. Would have been nice to show Quick Boomerang too since Quick Man was a huge focus in the past issues. I would have been happier if Bubble Lead took out the hologram like in the game. Mega Man could have panicked and changed to random weapon (and have a moment about robots making mistakes and having feelings) or used the acid as a room wide dispersal attack to eat through the wall (since it was depicted as liquid when he used it against Heat Man).

I felt like I missed a joke with Guts Man doing karaoke. What was it referencing? Actually same with the next issue. What universe is Plum from, is that lady with Light an established character? Same with the green guy. Also what about the la something or another ruins? Was the 'beyond the star' thing Wily was saying something from the Japanese or something Flynn just came up with? What was up with virus Mega Man's purple scarf again? Its not a tokusatsu thing, is it? Was the Light anti virus and item handheld computer a design that was used somewhere before? Is this like a pre cursor to Eddie Fliptop? We should have an annotated Archie Mega Man page or so.

Argh, why introduce Rush here? He could have waited until the next arc, really.

Yeah, the finale was rushed and crammed but it was a LOT of FUN! I kinda missed the Wily Bots. I thought maybe we'd see them in the boss rush but they ran away and have gone rogue when Wily hit the self destruct. That way, they could be roaming around the city, either being criminals (Quick Man felt like a malcontent, Bubble Man came off as a frustrated wannabe conqueror), trying to find their place in the world (Wood Man would certainly seek out his animal friends), possibly be useful (Air Man and Flash Man felt like they would ok with administrative duties) or just chill out (Heat Man was friendly enough).

Hmm, I may be getting my games wrong but Mega Man 3 was mining bots, already working in different sectors. Mega Man 4 was Cossack's bots. Mega Man 6 were stolen Robot Fair entries reprogrammed. So the next official Wily Bots would be Mega Man 5? Wily would have to rebuild the Mega Man 2 Wily bot series as his henchmen until he builds his next set.

I've read no spoilers on the next arc, in fact, I was surprised as heck to find out that it wasn't Mega Man 3 or the gameboy game. Pharoah Man is Mega Man 4 but he's a fave so I'm not complaining.

Will praise Ben Bates art again. It's so dynamic! The action jumps up from out of the page The expressions are great! Nope, I haven't seen the creative teams listed in upcoming issues so I hope he sticks around!

Great job on the finale! It wasn't perfect (adding more details on stages and bosses versus wrapping up the arc) but it was still a TON of FUN!!! icon-fire.gif

----

I checked out the destructiod preview pages of 13. Cossack seems young. I was expecting Pharoah Man to have his awesome cape from the us cartoon, lmao, dunno why. I'm thinking Emerald Spears is a play on Ruby Spears, lmao! Jonathan Hill is doing the art? Bates is gone? DARN! Hill is the guy who did the weeeeird art on Sonic's Return to Angel Island where Knuckles' bro Kneecaps was shown? That kinda sucked for me. But the art in the preview looks GREAT. Let's see how he does with action scenes.

Oh, Jonathan Gray! I got my Jon's mixed up! Yeah, Gray did the funky art in Return to Angel island. Love the blue jacket style he gave Ray the flying squirrel. Jon Hill is the artist of the next Mega Man arc. I didn't realize he was an artist too. He was hilarious in the modern 21 Jump Street and changed everything for Moneyball. Kidding icon-hotrod.gif

Ursa Magnus, are you in your 40s and have a son? There's a guy posting in the Bumbleking forum who's just as enthusiastic as you when it comes to the Crusaders. If that's not you, you should definitely go to the red circle forum in Bumbleking cuz they need all the Crusader attention they can muster. Ian Flynn reads the threads cuz it's his site (I think) so he'll pay attention to real fans of the classic comic. I dunno who Paul Kaminski is but he's probably the editor or some sort of head in Archie.

I'll check out the Crusaders too because I too would like to see how Flynn does with superheroes. He's got a winning streak so far:)

The Items were awesome but two item 2's? Only item 1 could be used multiple times for the impossible jump as a stairway. Haha, would have been hilarious if one of the Light Bot grabbed hold of item 3 since it's trademark is to bounce around until it touches a wall. That wouldn't be canon tho. And why couldn't any of the Light bots create the items? Is it only Mega Man who's capable of manifesting the items?


I wouldn't stress game rules too much, or else Mega Man shouldn't be able to aim up or duck, either.

And it seems the support items run on the same Variable Weapons System that Mega Man's other weapons do.

Metal Blades! Awesome to have them mentioned as the universal weapon. Would have been nice to show Quick Boomerang too since Quick Man was a huge focus in the past issues. I would have been happier if Bubble Lead took out the hologram like in the game. Mega Man could have panicked and changed to random weapon (and have a moment about robots making mistakes and having feelings) or used the acid as a room wide dispersal attack to eat through the wall (since it was depicted as liquid when he used it against Heat Man).


Sounds like the Worlds of Power book.

QUOTE
I felt like I missed a joke with Guts Man doing karaoke. What was it referencing?


The karaoke, or the song?

Karaoke is Guts Man's favorite pastime; the song is referencing Roll's theme song from (if I remember right) Battle & Chase and Marvel vs. Capcom.

QUOTE
Actually same with the next issue. What universe is Plum from, is that lady with Light an established character? Same with the green guy.


Plum and, if I understand your question right, Ripot are from Battle & Chase. Dr. Lalinde is an all-new character, as is her robot, Quake Woman.

QUOTE
Also what about the la something or another ruins?


Super Adventure Rockman.

QUOTE
Was the 'beyond the star' thing Wily was saying something from the Japanese or something Flynn just came up with?


"Wily" turned into an alien; it was all part of his act.

QUOTE
What was up with virus Mega Man's purple scarf again? Its not a tokusatsu thing, is it?


In Mega Man Powered Up, you can unlock other Robot Masters to play as by defeating them with only your Mega Buster. When you play as one of those Robot Masters, "Mega Man?" takes their place with a decidedly meaner look... including the purple scarf.

QUOTE
Was the Light anti virus and item handheld computer a design that was used somewhere before?


Nothing I'm immediately aware of.

QUOTE
Is this like a pre cursor to Eddie Fliptop?


I'm doubtful.

QUOTE
We should have an annotated Archie Mega Man page or so.


...eh?

QUOTE
Argh, why introduce Rush here? He could have waited until the next arc, really.


Why not? It's not as though they focused on him for more than a page, and it clears the way for him to be there in the next one.

QUOTE
Yeah, the finale was rushed and crammed but it was a LOT of FUN! I kinda missed the Wily Bots. I thought maybe we'd see them in the boss rush but they ran away and have gone rogue when Wily hit the self destruct. That way, they could be roaming around the city, either being criminals (Quick Man felt like a malcontent, Bubble Man came off as a frustrated wannabe conqueror), trying to find their place in the world (Wood Man would certainly seek out his animal friends), possibly be useful (Air Man and Flash Man felt like they would ok with administrative duties) or just chill out (Heat Man was friendly enough).

Hmm, I may be getting my games wrong but Mega Man 3 was mining bots, already working in different sectors. Mega Man 4 was Cossack's bots. Mega Man 6 were stolen Robot Fair entries reprogrammed. So the next official Wily Bots would be Mega Man 5? Wily would have to rebuild the Mega Man 2 Wily bot series as his henchmen until he builds his next set.


I have a hunch as to why they were not revived, aside from space issues... suffice to say, I think you can count on their return before too long.

QUOTE
I've read no spoilers on the next arc, in fact, I was surprised as heck to find out that it wasn't Mega Man 3 or the gameboy game. Pharoah Man is Mega Man 4 but he's a fave so I'm not complaining.


And now you can get to know him better before Mega Man shines a light in his eyes and puts a gun to his head.

Anyone pick-up Sonic Super Special magazine for the 10 page original comic? I couldn't rationalize paying $10 bucks for the story, so I hope it isn't essential to the story arc. If anything, I kinda feel that they should've made the Super Special Magazine story the Free Comic Book Day story and put the prose junk in the magazine...


I got one to see how I liked it.

And while it's good (and I wound up getting a good one to sample, given Sonic 4 Ep. II), I'm not sure I can justify the $10 price tag...

...might look at a subscription, though. Maybe.

Pharoah Man's a little bland, or at least, I don't know what to think of him. He's all jerky and irritable at the start, then at the end he's all nervous and confused. Also, he needs a cape. I loved the explanation for his name, motif and function, though. It's so ridiculous, but in a perfect kind of way.

The best contribution of the 90's cartoon!
