I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

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)

Well there is an overpriced limited edition, but I don't want to pay that much money for it.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:21 AM)

Well great. The one Usagi Yojimbo volume I don't have and it's out of stock.

@  Rycochet : (17 January 2020 - 06:15 PM)

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.

@  Donocropolis : (17 January 2020 - 06:35 AM)

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.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 January 2020 - 03:12 PM)

@  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.

@  Ashley : (10 January 2020 - 12:01 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)

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

Can you not take so many lines to say anything?

@  fourteenwings : (06 January 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Iunno, maybe people having unique pronunciations of things re:how they understand language makes the world a more colourful place, rather than one where we correct every seemingly grievous error?

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:12 AM)

Others insist on "Michael Yackson".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:01 AM)

Because the very combination of those sounds is unknown to them, and thus they avoid it as if it were contagious.

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:00 AM)

For example, the English "J" sound consists of sounds that exist in German: Basically, it's just a "d" sound followed by a very soft "sh". Yet there are many Germans who insist on calling the late King of Pop "Michael Checkson".

Most those powers are the same power. He can shift his density. That's his main power. He flies when he shifts to be light enough to defy gravity, he's can be nearly indestuctible when his shifts his density to be as dense as possible. Phasing, is also on the lighter end of density shifting, just as super strength comes from hitting someone with a fist that weighs several tons.

You may want to check that.

Seems set for Carol. But she'll be as Captain Marvel, apparently.

But obviously a lot of this stuff will be dropped before filming. So many new characters announced. Makes sense in a way to add extras early on, particularly with one key role not yet a certainty.

And if they don't drop anyone. It'll be X3 all over again.

That's fairly apt, maybe not 100% accurate, but generally they are similar characters in basic personality and power set.

So I'd prefer neither of them.



You've said this once before, and I'll say the same thing I said then: I've no clue where you get this impression from. Vision was NEVER trope at any point during his life.

Yeah this.

That complaint sounds like someone whose never actually read Vision stories talking. He was always an emotional fully "human" synthazoid. That's why the Scarlet Witch fell for him. He was a gentle, feeling, heroic soul.

He has exactly 2 powers: Mass shifting and lasers from the eyes. That's hardly overpowered in the world of Avengers at all.


-ZacWilliam, Vision is really one of the core classic Avengers and deserves to be in the films.

Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isn’t a “special need”. It’s a basic human right. It’s a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

I'm all for Vision in the movies but I'm more than OK with him having no connection to Wanda or Simon. Honestly it was FOREVER before I knew of the Simon connection and the Wanda thing always seemed too damn weird and forced to me. Just keep him as an Ultron creation and I would be very happy. Make the connection by using the Human Torch from the first Cap movie and I would pee my pants.

Also EFF Wanda entirely. I can not stand her powers... which are whatever the current writer says they are. She is just a terribly defined person.

With Marvel wanting to do a Dr. Strange film, they could easily just have Wanda be a straight up witch weilding chaos magic or whatever. I'm pretty sure she had magical ability in addition to her mutant powers, so it wouldn't be that much of a stretch. Quicksilver could be the product of a spell or a mystical item or something, I dunno.

The other alternative is to weave them into the Inhumans mythos.

I honestly really hate the idea of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver being on the big screen without them being mutants. It's such huge, huge parts of their characters. However, I have an unwavering faith in Joss Whedon. He'll find a way to not only make it work, but to make it awesome.

Agreed - with Joss at the helm, he'll be able to incorporate what he can and make it work in a way that is both believable and faithful. It would also be an amazing thing if Fox and Marvel/Disney got a contract together to where they could share properties if needed.

I think Fox would have NOTHING to lose if they could borrow elements of the MCU and put it in their upcoming X-Men and X-related films! Imagine a S.H.I.E.L.D. cameo, or mentions of the Avengers as a team, or it's members, in upcoming X-Men films? How AWESOME would that be for the fans?!

And the idea that Logan could off-handed-ly mention his involvement in WW2, talk about the great Captain America, and mention the Avengers and Cap's return? With that in mind, it wouldn't be too far to bring in some form of the Marvel Illuminati if Fox and Marvel/Disney could share rights to characters.

Honestly, Fox would only GAIN from such a union, especially since Fox still has X-Men and Fantastic Four characters. An Avengers/X-Men/FF Cinematic Universe would be astonishing! HELL, Sony was willing to work with Marvel to incorporate the OSCORP tower in the Avengers' NYC Skyline, but rendering was already complete by the time all the red-tape was cleared.

Between Fox, Sony and Disney, Marvel could create a more unified MCU and be able to swap characters interchangbly and piece together a universe that co-exists between DOZENS of films.

Well, that's basically the Martian Manhunter in a nutshell. Except Vision is an android, but both are just about as clueless about human behaviour. I wonder which one of them came first in comics?

But honestly that's why it won't happen because marvel/disney have nothing to gain from the union.

Marvel would ultimately want the characters back under their own fold, a union that allows other companies play to strengthen their hold wouldn't do really. And a union just so you can have an off hand mention of the fast SW and QS are mutants or wolverine fought with cap in WW would make us happy but they won't ultimately add or detract from the film.
It's a Newcomic (apparently)

One of the key factors of keeping the MCU fro descending into dreck is a careful and thorough oversight of the series from Marvel/Disney (by way of Kevin Fiege.) Attaching themselves to Fox and Sony's offering is giving up some of that control. Additionally, working together would not be the creative paradise you seem to think it would be, as once multiple companies start workign together, it means multiple teams of lawyers start working together. Suddenly you have people demanding a higher cut of the profits due to a character having 2 minutes more screentime than in a previous draft, or conversely, bitching that their character is not getting enough face time. A quick cameo like putting a building in a background is one thing; subjecting your products to the whims of what is essentially a competitor is a terrible idea in the best of times.

Also, Fox has had some EXTREMLY dire movies (Daredevil, Elektra, Fantastic Four 1&2, X-Men 3, Wolverine) and so has Sony (Spider-Man 3, Ghost Rider) Those movies are filled with bad creative decisions, poor choices of actors, writers and directors, and just generally poor decision making that doesn't respect the source material. I'd prefer if those guys are as far removed from any additional IP's as possible. MCU is doing great on it's own, let's leave it that way.
