Is Skyrim worth playing in 2020?

@  Paladin : (28 February 2020 - 07:45 AM)

when you use the character as a header image for a frontpage story, i think you lose the right to complain about anyone else "spoiling things."

@  Nevermore : (28 February 2020 - 04:45 AM)

Did I say that? I must have been joking.

@  Sabrblade : (27 February 2020 - 11:46 PM)

And you say you have no sense of humor, Nevermore. ;)

@  Nevermore : (27 February 2020 - 09:07 PM)

Gonzo, start a thread in the main "Transformers Discussion" forum with that information in the title instead.

@  Sabrblade : (27 February 2020 - 08:33 PM)

Gonzo, please don't go spoiling things like that in the chat box.

Toy Galaxy is my favorite overall toy-related channel on YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (26 February 2020 - 11:29 PM)

Last year's coverage via Toy YouTubers was brilliant. However, since YouTube's new (unfortunately necessary) guidelines the companies barely invited any of them back, so all we get is super-popular collector's info.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 February 2020 - 09:19 PM)

If it weren't for Toy Galaxy's coverage video, I would not have known about the Defenders of the Earth figures. New toys of Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician? In 2020? I would have said you were smoking something strong.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:32 PM)

So the question is... has Madagascar closed down all its ports yet?

So the Corona virus keeps getting closer to where I live. Several confirmed cases in my federal state already.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 February 2020 - 02:20 PM)

Man, only having collector sites to get Toy Fair news from sucks. Did you know there is a 4" line of kids figures for the new Avengers game coming?

@  Dekafox : (26 February 2020 - 11:54 AM)

Since Omega already exists they could name it Auntie

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:07 AM)

Oh, and one last Titan,provided we can fudge things a bit to include a character from Transformers: Animated; how about something at least resembling TF:A Omega Supreme?

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:05 AM)

How about they find a way to make a mold they can use for both Broadside and Tidal Wave?

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 February 2020 - 02:13 AM)

Optimus Maximus, the mysterious titan of the Arisen, also Iaconus from Cyberverse.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 February 2020 - 01:33 PM)

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy....

@  Vexwing : (22 February 2020 - 03:26 AM)

I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 February 2020 - 08:47 PM)

@Dekafox, no DTP, but they DO have LILY Cat ;)

@  CORVUS : (21 February 2020 - 08:46 PM)

For me, it's "chocolate therapy".

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 06:42 PM)

Ahh. I remember watching Bubblegum Crisis 2020 or whatever.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

I'm just making up excuses here but maybe you could say he was more confident because he knew he'd have something to lash out at when he let the beast loose. Earlier he would have just been a giant ball of rage with nothing to do and that would scare me as well. But with an alien invasion he was a giant ball of rage with a target.

I got the impression that it was a result of Banner's conversation with the old guy at the crash site, when he realized for the first time that the Hulk did have some level of conscience and self control - having (somehow) steered himself while falling to avoid hurting anybody (because he knew that building was empty, I guess?).

That was one of a couple of bits of the movie that I thought could have used some more explanation and development, but I can't say what I would have cut to squeeze it in.

(Did Hawkeye EVER wear his red sunglasses/goggles from all of the ads and merchandise? I spotted him in normal sunglasses in the scene at the end when Thor and Loki go home, but I don't remember those things ever showing up in the film.)

Banner's character arch when it pertained to his opinions regarding his 'other guy' was off-screen/not really dealt with. At least it wasn't vocalized. But I don?t think it was entirely unbelievable. His long conversations with Tony I think really helped this. Banner could finally see that, #1 he wasn?t entirely alone. #2. He could be around people that the Hulk couldn?t just kill with a backhand. #3. Those people actually put faith in him and relied upon him rather than fearing him.

I think these all helped Banner to realize that he could use the Hulk rather than being a cowering slave to it. That was my narrative anyway since the movie didn?t really outwardly vocalize any.

Oh yeah. Another thing that struck me...they made Loki say a pretty bad word to Black Widow, there. Even though it's old-timey, I was astonished that it got through.

Also. Man did I realize how lame Captain America, Black Widow, and Hawkeye were in that last fight. They just paled in comparison to the other 3.

Outside of the Captain's tactics, they had zero impact on the final fight.

Black Widow's role in destroying the portal could have been done by the doctor since he was already looking at the staff when she got there.
Captain was only really beating up drones. He gave the police a pep talk.
Hawkeye, I suppose shot the exploding arrow at Loki, but that really only put Loki in close proximity to the Hulk, but doing that still didn't have any effect on the final outcome of the fight.

Seriously though, Black Widow shouldn't be in that fight. She could get hurt. :\ She could only pew pew with her tiny guns.

I really, really didn't like the look in her eyes during half that fight. Was she really that close to crying? Ugh...

I can't remember anyone yelling out AVENGERS ASSEMBLE! is my memory just jive or did no one say it?


Nobody yelled it but it did appear on one of the tv reports caption as something like Avengers Assemble in New York.

It is awesome that the only letter left to Stark Tower is A as in Avengers.

I know Jarvis is snarky but you just feel this is not a good idea boss with Tony blowing up the Leviathan inside. One of these days he is going to AI rebel on what Stark keeps pulling.

Thor is the measuring stick for the Avenger big names. Tony's arc tech absorbs his lightning charging his Iron Man armor 400% Cap's Vibranium shield deflects and reflects the energy of Mjonir's kinetic energy. Hulk is on par or stronger than Thor.


Interesting note is that Phase II is utilizing Zola's tech for new weapons. With it Shield managed to replicate the Destroyer's beam weapon. It doesn't take genius that the Hammer drone tech would eventually be used with them in Phase II.

Fury's Big Week does explain why Black Widow was so damned scarred of Banner. Every time she shadowed him she nearly gets killed as collateral damage.

Oh the Leader she shot him and is in Shield custody... As far as we know. Loki's entrance leveled the place where he is. And he is likely part of Phase II along with the other stuff being moved.

Prime opportunity for an escape for the In. Hulk sequel being considered.

Well that was a amazing. My theater had a special deal. All six movies, Thor, Cap and Avengers in 3D all for $40, plus free refills on large soda and popcorn. Never done anything like that and it was incredible and the Marvels movies are easily now one of my favorite movie series.

And as for the question of chronological order after watching them one after the other I thought they all flowed together just fine, the big hick-up is that Hulk, Iron Man 2 and Thor overlap so unless you have two or three TVs to watch them at the same time....

And Mark Ruffalo was great as Banner, but after seeing Hulk a few hours earlier I liked Ed Norton more.

Man, the dialog was so good, and the jokes were so witty and funny, oh right Whedon wrote it.

And this gave some great characterization to Black Widow, I wonder why-- Oh right, Whedon likes to write strong woman who can kick my ass, and I'm fine with that. icon-hotrod.gif

Coulson! No! Why?! icon-screamer.gif icon-screamer.gif There's nothing like hearing a collective gasp from everyone in the theater.

I always miss the little things, but this time I knew as soon as Loki took out the S and T that one of the last shots would be the A on Starks tower.

My friends (okay me too) nearly died from Hulks scenes with Thor and Loki. And no one expected Thanos to be behind it.

And the last shot was a great end, no big deal for those that missed it, but I loved just seeing them have down time.

Ironbite-now we've got Thor 2, Captain America 2, Iron Man 3, Giant Man and Wasp and then....THANOS! The future is going to be bright.

About Tony's light, I noticed it too, but also in those scenes he was wearing a long sleeve under his T-shirt.
