Ok, I can't find the "Savage on a Ravage" pic that soneone pisted. Can anyone link me to it?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 September 2017 - 12:47 PM)

I'm also sure you don't sparkle like a disco ball, otherwise someone woulda run you over by now.

I'm pretty sure most vampires would cause a gremlin infestation just for the giggles.

@  Noideaforaname : (21 September 2017 - 11:42 AM)

Hmm, a vampire would have a hell of a hard time getting rid of a Gremlin infestation, wouldn't he?

Well then there's yellowing but isn't that all of them. I like to leave all my TF's in a hot car all day long to let all their joints turn to jelly.

Sometime last week, I purchased Hasbro Windblade online then a day or two later, Takara Windblade was announced for only £4.99 more making me instantly regret buying Hasbro's Windblade. Guess I'll be giving Hasbro Windblade to my nephew for Christmas then.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:15 PM)

Hmm. How much is shipping from BBTS?

@  NightViper : (20 September 2017 - 02:09 PM)

Set of the four is still $22 at BBTS

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:00 PM)

Ramhorn is currently available from a third party seller via Amazon for $27.

I guess he's gone now. Oh well.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I saw Ramhorn all over ebay for $16 a week ago or so.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 09:02 AM)

Just ordered Arcee.  I don't need her.  But she's pink.  And a robot.  A combination I love.

@  Darknova4life : (20 September 2017 - 08:57 AM)

@ Robowang, Where is TR Ramhorn available for $16?

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 07:31 AM)

Besides spotty, this is the first time I've consistently seen reships of older waves months after the next 2/3 waves show up.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 September 2017 - 07:29 AM)

No kidding spotty. Haven't seen of the recent waves, and I desperately want a seaspray for my brother.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 07:05 AM)

Distribution is so spotty these days that I've given in and just started ordering everything. I'm probably going to wind up with a $16 Ramhorn, too.

@  MidnightFox : (19 September 2017 - 08:51 PM)

So they've been out at regular retail hit and miss for awhile.

@  MidnightFox : (19 September 2017 - 08:50 PM)

I picked up Misfire at a Target in Mississippi in mid-August.

@  Shrug : (19 September 2017 - 05:09 PM)

I think so. I checked his post history just now and he mentions buying something in North Carolina

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 September 2017 - 05:04 PM)

A U.S. Walmart?

@  Shrug : (19 September 2017 - 04:41 PM)

Saw someone found Misfire's wave at Walmart on Reddit. First normal retail sighting I've heard. I'm more hopeful now.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 September 2017 - 04:04 PM)

I'm praying I will be able to find Misfire and Slugslinger at brick and mortar somehow.

@  Xellos : (19 September 2017 - 03:22 PM)

Getting the set of 3, myself. Figure I'll keep Hot Rod in package (still my fave character), and give Kup to my nephew to help expand his current fascination with Transformers.

@  Telly : (19 September 2017 - 11:56 AM)

i got slugslinger for $30 from amazon as well. i can imagine thatll be the standard price at most places since theyll jack up the price to cover having all those kup and hot rods sitting in their stores

@  Robowang : (19 September 2017 - 08:16 AM)

Yes, I bought the $30 one on Amazon. I'd rather just pay the $30 than pay $60 and be stuck with an extra Hot Rod and Kup I can't sell.

@  Robowang : (19 September 2017 - 07:34 AM)

Slugslinger, Misfire, and Triggerhappy look amazing together. Best of Titans Return, as far as I'm concerned.

@  Noideaforaname : (18 September 2017 - 11:32 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 September 2017 - 08:29 PM)

Thank you Hasbro for having never reissued the 2011 City Strike Destro figure...already at $32 with a week left.

It was "Take Your Laserbeak To Work Day".... well, for me it was anyway. I was getting bored of being on hold when I made calls, so wanted something to relieve the boredom.

Supposedly.

After he finishes his eight-year drag on the Avengers franchise, Brian Michael Bendis may be getting the keys to the X-Men corner of the universe.

So enjoy Wolverine and the X-Men, X-Factor, and whatever else is fun and quirky while you can. They might not be around after this year.

On the plus side, Avengers will finally be free.

Let's see...Spider-Woman will be retroactively be found to have an X-Gene.

Luke Cage's baby will turn out to be a mutant, facilitating Cage and Jessica Jones to move in with the X-Men.

Magneto will split off from the X-Men again, and instead of forming a new Brotherhood, will form a new Dark X-Men.

Ms. Marvel will frequently guest-star.

Everyone will begin speaking like a twelve year old girl. The conversations they have will last an entire issue.

What else?

Didn't they already make Jessica Drew a mutant? I mean I guess she's different from an x-gene mutant, but that's kinda splitting hairs. They still call Namor a mutant after all.

As long as it gets him away from the Avengers franchise. I don't read most xbooks anyway.

I just miss the days when heroes had big exciting adventures ful of wonder and epic scale, when they did fun stuff and fought colorful supervillians in costumes. The day Bendis leaves will be one step closer to the Avengers being the type of comic I want to read again.


-ZacWilliam, if the Avengers never have another issue long, semi-depresive conversation in their living room, have their house/skyscraper/mythical city blown up, or fight other heroes over political differences, an army of generic sci-fi ish government/semi-government troops, or semi-villians who mostly wear normal clothes and want to talk about how the Avengers are the real villians ever again it will be TOO SOON.

There is nothing official...just Rich trying to break a story. He did break the New 52 story and Before Watchmen though, I saw a rumour that it is Uncanny X-Men that Bendis will be taking over, which I'm fine with.

Well he is a human Atlatean hybrid which is a type of human mutant. Not much different then Franklin being a mutant by being the offspring of Reed and Sue.

Actually, no. Namor is a mutant becasue of those tiny wings on his ankles that give him the power of flight. Seriously. They're from the x-gene and what make him a mutant.


-ZacWilliam, it has nothing to do with his hybrid human atlantian mix.

God, bendis is such a hack. He's a big reason why I havent been reading anything from marvel or dc lately. Let him write some solo, noir-ish characters. Dude just doesn't know how to write anything else.

Why would Bendis be a big reason why you're not reading from BOTH companies? I could understand Marvel...but he doesn't write for DC icon-hotrod.gif He's not a hack. He just gets complacent on books that he has had a long run on. Such as both Avengers books. His work on Ultimate Comics Spider-Man has been really good so far, better than I expected.

Because his writing style has become extremely popular. It seems like both companies prefer writers that write in that obnoxious, overly talky style. He's also one of the first writers, to my knowledge, to start "writing for the trade", which has also become the norm.

Yeah Geoff Johns is right up there with him in that regard. I used to be a much bigger Bendis fan than I am now. I don't think though he's a better choice than the two main writers they have writing X-Men right now....although like I said, I would be fine with him taking over Uncanny X-Men, as that book has just been plain boring.

Bendis sort of addresses the rumour and boasts that what he's doing after AVX is so much more...still not spilling the beans. I'm guessing they're waiting for the next major con to divulge this information.
