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

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:23 AM)

I both love and hate that the Alien franchise seems to have had more luck finding a niche as a line of children's toys than it has at producing worthwhile films.

I've seen them on the shelves at Walmart. They're pretty great looking retro Aliens toys. https://www.walmart....-Vary/934039489

@  fourteenwings : (17 January 2020 - 01:11 AM)

IIRC somebody on here mentioned an unbranded Alien toy a couple of weeks ago? It seems like it was actually part of a collection for the Alien movie series by Lanard. Mattel's making some stuff too.

@  Nevermore : (12 January 2020 - 12:22 PM)

Geez. 1760 (!) bombs from World War II that had not detonated and were still armed have been found. That's only the numbers for the federal state of Germany I live in, and only for the first three quarters of 2019. For all of 2018, the total number was 2811 (!!) bombs.

@  CVReynolds : (11 January 2020 - 11:05 PM)

I've been wanting a Tarantulas that turns into a more realistic tarantula for a long time. Maybe Takara will someday do a Masterpiece, which would be neat. But I really want to see a modernized look like in the IDW comics.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 January 2020 - 01:27 AM)

He's appeared across more branding changes than Waspinator, so maybe it's more the other way around.

I mean, it is easier to protect HDDs, and you can retransfer the data over and over forever?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 January 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Not in this comparison. He's making his own files, so they're (presumably) not restricted by DRM, so he can copy them as many times as he wants. It's potentially more reliable in the long term than hoping the specific copies you originally bought never accrue any damage for the rest of your life.

@  Echowarrior : (09 January 2020 - 10:44 AM)

I prefer physical copies too. Easier to protect something physical and tangible.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 09:55 AM)

I prefer having physical copies.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 January 2020 - 08:56 AM)

I have plenty of physical media I turn into digital media for my plex server. Just finished ripping Ultra Seven

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Isn't the general consensus that we're supposed to be over physical media anyways?

Should I recognise the narrator of the Mutant Hunt trailer?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 January 2020 - 04:30 AM)

I got me Titans Return Blaster, now watch them unveil Earthrise Blaster and Generations Perceptor, a retool of Titans Blaster.

@  ThunderWear : (06 January 2020 - 10:22 PM)

I recently switched to to the comic theme here at the Allspark and I'm so happy I just want to look at it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (06 January 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Can you not take so many lines to say anything?

Cap had April pretty much to himself though.

Spider-Man dropped below an R-rated comedy for week 2 and has Godzilla and X-men to deal with for weeks 3 and 4.


...hence my comment about Spidey having a long way to go. 


Cap's been going for 6+ weeks now, and will likely get another week or two before most theaters go ahead and let the film go.


But Spidey's cutting it close to the start of blockbuster season, and it shows. Even if it survives beyond week 4, it'll have the one-two punch of "Maleficent" and "A Million Ways To Die In The West" for week 5, "Edge of Tomorrow" for week 6, and "22 Jump Street" + "How To Train Your Dragon 2" for week 7. 


Unless one of those movies absolutely tanks, they're going to pull viewers away from the "older" films, even if only for a weekend. Spidey might be able to fend off everyone else, but he'll take a pounding in the process.

Box Office Mojo has tentative weekend numbers up.


By the yearly domestic chart, Cap is a mere $3.2m away from overtaking Lego for #1 movie of the year. Spidey is coming in at third place, but still trails Cap by something to the effect of $78.5m. 


Worldwide grosses? Cap's at $703m, while Spidey's at $633m


The $70m worldwide gross gap is smaller than the $78.5m domestic gap, and so it's actually possible that Spidey could beat Cap globally but still lose to him domestically. I wonder how the bean counters in Hollywood would react if that took place.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

So hey, because I enjoy doing this, I've updated the weekends for both movies. I also lined them up a bit better. ASM2 opened internationally for longer than Cap2.




Next week is where we'll see a divergence, I think (if any).

Just checked Box Office Mojo.


Based on their estimates of Tuesday's numbers, they have Cap at $704m worldwide (and it's just $3.2m shy of beating Lego domestically) and Spidey at $636m worldwide. Spidey's closing the gap, but still has to overcome Cap still being in some theaters.

Box Office Mojo has Friday's estimates up. 


For yearly domestic, Cap is just shy of $252.9m, while Spidey is at $171.1m. Difference: $81.8m


For global total, Cap's just shy of $705.1m while Spidey is at $640.1m. Difference: $65m


If the estimates are correct, this means that the global gap is shrinking while the domestic gap is increasing... and that's with individual theaters pulling Cap out of rotation to make room for X-Men.

What was the domestic gap last weekend? The only way for it to be shrinking is if Cap made more than ASM 2 this week. I don't see how that's possible.

I had them in post #547. If my math was right, last week the domestic gap was $78.5m. 


Now the gap between the two films is $81.8m if my math is right.


So the domestic gap between the films has somehow grown


Either that, or BOM's got some funky numbers up. We should know in a few days once the final official #s are out.

New new weekend numbers from Box Office Mojo.


Domestically, Cap is at $253,563,000m while Spidey is at $184,900,000m. That's a difference of $68,663,000m. 


Globally, Cap is at $707,663,000 while Spidey is at $673,900,000m. That's a difference of $33,763,000m. 


At this rate, we're still looking at the awkward situation of Spidey potentially beating Cap globally but losing domestically. 


Even more potential pain comes from X-Men, which is at $90,700.000m domestically and $261,780,000 globally. X-Men took in three days (Thurs - Saturday) half of what Spidey took domestically over the last several weeks, and is still likely going to be running for a while.

The be fair, If I was looking at this from the hype machine point of view:


Cap had a really good set of trailers, riding on the back of the Marvel wave of popularity and then, certainly once it was released, it had the word of mouth of how good it was that got other people going to it (I sent a group of friends who loved it based on my reccomendation). From a nerd point of view it had the Winter soldier that would bring people in and once it was released, again, it had word of mouth about how many easter eggs in it for fans.


Spiderman had some ok trailers that gave us standard fayre, but riding a wave of mediocre reception to the last film and the previous trilogy and once released, it certainly divided people on it but most agreed it was pretty much an ok film that needs tweaking. From a nerd point of view - it finatlly had a decent costume and the rhino, oh and the goblin (AGAIN)

X-men - had a good marketing campaign, it has the actors in it a lot of people will remember from seeing in the original trilogy when they were younger, it was intriguing in its use of old and new cast and riding a good restarted wave from First Class. Nerd points definately go for covering Days of Future Past (a loved story and one of my favourites) and putting fan favourites like Blink and Bishop in there. In a short space of time it has already god good word of mouth reports about the film that will no doubt push hype further.


Overal this year I can see (prediction drum roll please) X-men coming up on top, the cap, then Spidey.

It's a Newcomic (apparently)

New numbers from Box Office Mojo - 


Worldwide totals: Spidey is $19.3m behind Cap, while X-Men is a little less than $190m behind Spidey. 


Domestic: Cap is $10,511 away from being #1 US movie for the year. Spidey is about $63m behind Cap, and X-Men is about $30.7m behind Spidey. 


If this keeps up, we most certainly will see Spidey defeat Cap for global ticket sales despite Cap still leading in domestic sales by a wide margin.

Here goes - 


Domestic: The Lego Movie is back on top as the #1 domestic film of the year, beating Cap by a mere $4,000 in ticket sales ($256,328,000 vs. $256,324,000). X-Men is at #3 with $206m in domestic ticket sales, while Spidey's $198 has resulted in it being stuck at #4. Godzilla is at #5 with $191m. Neither of the five movies are listed as having "closed", meaning that they're still screening somewhere in the US and so things could well be up in the air.


Global: Cap is #1 with $710.3m, Spidey is #2 with $700.3m, X-Men is #3 with $661.7m, Rio 2 is #4 with $468.7m, and The Lego Movie is #5 with $462.7m. 


Given this, it's almost guaranteed that if Spidey beats Cap for #1 global it'll do so without beating Cap domestically unless the film gets a resurgence somehow.
