SDCC toy reveals make adults happy by telling them what they can get eventually. Kids don't care what they can get eventually, you make them happy by getting them whatever's available now.

@  Jalaguy : (20 July 2017 - 06:10 PM)

They exist, they just don't show them at SDCC because they assume that the adult fanbase doesn't care about them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 06:03 PM)

On SDCC stuff...I'm disappointed, but not surprised, at the lack of the actual KIDS toys among all the toys for us old men

SSA response? "How would we know to un enroll you if you don't tell us?"

I'm supposed to un-enrolled in Medicare at the end of the month (36 months post-transplant), but I'm getting a bill for next quarter's coverage.

In to the darkness, snuffing out the light, fighting for the things you know aren't right

Snuff out the light, claim your right, to a world of darkness!

Then we must block it out, just like Mr. Burns had foretold.

Wouldn't a blessing by Satan pretty much be a curse anyway?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 July 2017 - 06:01 PM)

isn't "Blessed by Satan" an oxymoron?

@  Dracula : (18 July 2017 - 05:11 PM)

basically the sunscreen has to be blessed by satan.

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2017 - 05:07 PM)

@Dracula what SPF do you nees to not get turned into dust in the sun?

@  Dracula : (18 July 2017 - 04:42 PM)

That's typical summers for where I live. bleh

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

Isn't it fun when it's so humid, it feels like your eyeballs are sweating?

Like, it would basically be the female version of the 1st doctor. :)

@  D.M : (18 July 2017 - 09:54 AM)

I wasn't starting a flame war. That's a real scientific term for natural occuriring sex change. ;) As for Anne Ramsey like actress - would make the show lot more fun. :p

@  Dracula : (18 July 2017 - 09:42 AM)

Let's please not continue this line of discussion. We obviously aren't mature enough to do so.

@  2017 : (18 July 2017 - 09:41 AM)

Thanks mods.

@  2017 : (18 July 2017 - 08:22 AM)

What are you trying to say, Bass?

@  Bass X0 : (18 July 2017 - 08:21 AM)

That is a very 2017 attitude to have.

@  2017 : (18 July 2017 - 08:14 AM)

Um...no. Just call them by the gender they present as, please.

@  D.M : (18 July 2017 - 07:35 AM)

Let's please not try to stir up a flame war in the shoutbox, especially not over sensitive issues like gender.

@  Rycochet : (18 July 2017 - 07:16 AM)

I think the only thing that upsets me about the change of Doctors is no more Michelle Gomez, she was magnificent in the role.

@  Rycochet : (18 July 2017 - 07:15 AM)

Where was this outrage when (the fantastic) Michelle Gomez took over the role of the Master?

@  Pennpenn : (18 July 2017 - 04:29 AM)

Why did that double post?

@  Pennpenn : (18 July 2017 - 04:29 AM)

From what I understand (which could be wrong, or right based on some things but not others) is that Gallifreyans are agender and just appear as/present as particular genders because reasons. Kinda like Transformers.

I could see sneaking a win in Visual Effects. I thought DOTM was better in that regard than both Harry Potter and Real Steel. Haven't seen the other two though.

The first one was way better at them than the movie than won.

DOTM actually netting VFX would be REALLY cutting it close, short of the bad "Hollywood awards hates Bay" jokes (or something along those lines). My sister, who isn't a TF fan, even admitted that AWE winning the 2008 Oscars would've been a bit better.

I see Hugo going against Apes, with HP7.2 coming close.

My works! Lemme show you 'em!

I don't think they'll win for Visual Effects.

They did NOT fool me with that poor imitation of a real actress they had as Sam's girlfriend.

Harry Potter because it's the last one and needs to sweep some awards.

Girl with the Dragon Tatoo...it also is most likely going to get some sweeping awards.

Maybe a possible curveball in there, but yeah...
