@  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.

@  Rycochet : (30 April 2017 - 10:42 AM)

I'll be gladder when the term "waifu" gets somehow deleted from existence, or at least falls out of common (or any) use.

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

@  Lazy Garou : (29 April 2017 - 04:31 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?

@  Whirl Maximus : (29 April 2017 - 11:09 AM)

I've been watching clips of the Japanese dub of the Sunbow movie. Comes with added SCREAMS!

Beast Megatron (love the new purple, don't like the black face)
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1432.html

Optimus Primal (nearly identical to the Hasbro one)
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1431.html

Axalon (looks awesome)
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1430.html

Unicron (darker colors than Hasbro's)
http://blog-imgs-32....24005149b3e.jpg

Twincast, Stripes, and Nightstalker
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1428.html
Twincast does have the larger chest (and obviously the anime colored face) but it's been retool to remove the extra detailing. I LOVE, LOVE how Nighstalker's tape mode is nearly identical to Ravage - that is frickin' sweet!

Soundblaster, Enemy, and Wing Thing
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1427.html
Soundblaster has the newly colored face, modified stickers (all which look to be applied at the factory), and at least in this gallery is missing his dial. Enemy mimics the missing stripe stickers via paint apps (Encore Rumble & Frenzy were just bare).

Is anyone else's older release of Beast Megatron suffering from slightly-loose hip joints? The joints on mine have gotten loose enough that he slowly dips downwards in beast mode, only stopping once his T.rex head is inches from touching the ground. It's making it slightly tempting to get this absurdly-overpriced release. icon-wildride.gif

Axalon looks pretty good; it's amazing how the paint job helps make it look fairly different from Energon Sharkticon. icon-ironhide.gif

Axalon looks great. At that price, though, I'll have to contemplate it a bit.

The cassettes... nnnnnn so sad I can't get them.

Beast Megatron actually looks nice. But at that price it's a no go, edging toward a not ever.

And I never noticed until now that Cybertron Optimus' beast forearms/robot thighs are molded different from the BW release.

Man, Twincast and Soundblaster look great. The cassettes turned out perfectly too for the most part, I still love the crazy choices.

Hopefully I'll be able to get at least Twincast at some point, since the mold would be new for me.

The Vector Oracle Micron is actually for any Transformers toy (including Dark of the Moon), so there's no indication he's from the movie.

Since he's referred to as an Arms Micron, Prime would be the logical assumption.

Since we have the bios for Soundblaster's tapes transcribed, I ran them through Google Translate. Am I correct in thinking Enemy's sonic power is to make his enemies too angry to think straight? And that Wingthing is explicitly a drone with a personality program?

Axalon is awesome and Megatron is pretty cool (love the new purple). Unicron is nice, but Primal is a wash. I'll have to dig out my originals to see if there is anything different about Primal.

They're balljoints, so they're just wearing down. Stick a dot of superglue on the ball and then put the leg back on and work it around some. Good as new.

They didn't change it. They've been backwards since the Cybertron (ie second) release of Primal.
Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.
