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

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)

February 22nd through 25th, I feel like it was earlier last year...

@  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)

if you havent already, y'all check your walmarts clearance aisle. i found siege six shot for $5. course, it could just be my walmart, but never hurts to look

@  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 - 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

I started this thread so we can discuss the film without constant spoiler tags.

That entire third act was the greatest on screen spectacle any Superhero fan could ask for! And I truly love the old Marvel trope of misunderstandings between the heroes causing epic battles before they team up.

Definately a great movie and it's gonna be hard to top with the sequel. The humor mixed with action really worked well IMO, everything seemed to be timed really well. Definately saddened by Coulson's fate though. icon-screamer.gif

Even though I'm hardly familiar with some of Marvel's stuff, I was really excited when I saw Thanos, even though his name escaped me...I guessed Thanatos first, which is close...my friend stood up and asked "Who's a nerd in here? What was that dude's name?" as it escaped us both, but we realized the gravity of his dramatic head turn.


Hulk ended up being one of the funniest and one of the best characters, even though he wasn't on screen for so long. When he punched Thor and wiped the floor with Loki....everyone lost it.


And also: Shawarma. Dear god, the shawarma.

We were convinced that Coulson would be revealed to be alive at the end of the movie. We see paramedics run up to him literally a second after he dies, and we never see his body again after that. Figured it was Fury bending the truth to get the team to work together.

I'm still half-convinced that's exactly what happened, and we'll be seeing him show up as a surprise in the next one.

In the meantime...did it drive anybody else crazy how there were two or three scenes where they forgot to turn on Stark's chest light under his T-shirt?

Yeah I really hope Coulson didn't really die. *SIGH*

I didn't notice Tony's lack of a chest light under his shirt, whoops,lol.


Hulk punching Thor and whiping the floor with Loki (and interrupting his speech) was freakin hilarious. I'm really happy with how Hulk was handled this time, "Hulk smash" indeed. icon-ironhide.gif

that settled it for me that it was thanos. there was a group of people walking passed me after the movie discussing who it was. a girl said it was either red skull or thanos. i made mention of the courting death line and how much he loves death that it couldnt be anyone else

i hated that they killed coulson icon-screamer.gif dirty bastards. i also think this caused a change in stark. he seemed a bit more serious after he died

im definitely gonna have to go see this again
When I die I will surely go to Heaven for i spent my life in Hell

Oh man. Loki's face after getting slammed around by the Hulk. That was amazing.

I loved how Banner was all "I'm always angry" and then turned into the Hulk without any effort. The end of the last Hulk flick showed that he was practicing so it's good to see all that hard work paid off.

The thing I didn't get was why did Hulk attack Black Widow and Thor on the ship, was it because he was in a rage? He seemed much more controlled in the final bit, saving Iron Man, is it because he got to smash things? - Edit just realised this is being discussed in the other thread.

I'm going with the staff effecting him. Remember when he picked it up and didn't realize it?
This also plays on comic history where Loki controlled the Hulk which brought the team together in the first place.

This was a great thrill-ride. So cool seeing all those guys on screen together after all these years.

Hulk punching Thor and then later wiping the floor with Loki were just epic - Count me in that camp.

As for Tony's chest piece not lighting up, we are talking about the scene where he and Loki have a chat. I'm almost sure that right before that scene Jarvis makes mention of turning off the Arc chestpiece. Listen for it if you go see it again.

I think Loki's staff was bringing out everyone's anger as everyone in the room was fighting and even getting more and more in a rage. I think that plus the sneak attack on the helicarrier was too much for Banner to control his rage so when he transformed he figured Widow must've been the cause for his anger. Then of course anything that attacks him becomes a target to smash, enter Thor and then the pilot.

No, it's throughout the film. Just random shots and at least one whole scene where it's not lit for no good reason.

Well, in that instance, that's obviously so that Loki won't see the light shining through his shirt and hence won't realise what's wrong when he pokes him with the staff and it doesn't work.

I just didn't like the mismatch of the Hulk from the first part to the second part. Two different Hulks if you ask me.

Especially how terrified Banner was at the beginning about turning into the Hulk.

I understand the Hulk and his blind rage, but he seemed pretty confidant at the end about being able to control the Hulk.
