I snagged Rainmakers for half off.  They make me want jolly ranchers.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 04:21 PM)

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.

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)

Is it really a worse name than say, HMS Spanker?

The Collector Club is dead. Seems like it all came down shortly after New Year

@  ThunderWear : (13 January 2020 - 11:06 PM)

I can't get to the collector club website. anyone else? I was literally going to download all the fiction to finish reading.

Even in fallout, they never carpet bombed with nukes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 January 2020 - 12:43 PM)

I hope the stockpiled nuclear weapons of the US and Russia are accounted for then.

@  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.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 January 2020 - 09:43 PM)

We need more Waspinators.. and rattraps.

@  Ashley : (11 January 2020 - 07:09 PM)

I'm on board with that

@  Dekafox : (11 January 2020 - 06:17 PM)

What I'm hearing is we need Cyberverse Waspinator

@  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)

is C3PO the Waspinator of Star Wars? he'll live forever, because it's funny for him to suffer

@  Sabrblade : (09 January 2020 - 11:52 PM)

He's still waiting for them to be funny.

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?

@  Paladin : (09 January 2020 - 08:17 AM)

i still don't own a Blu-Ray player.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 January 2020 - 07:35 AM)

My current TV works just fine. I don't see a need to upgrade. And by the time I do, the Next Big Thing will probably be out anyway.

@  Benbot : (09 January 2020 - 03:58 AM)

Me neither. I'm no rebel, though. I'm just poor.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 03:38 AM)

I haven't gone 4K yet, I'm a rebel.

@  Ashley : (07 January 2020 - 11:50 PM)

the comic theme is amazing

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Sounds like Victor Caroli but I’m not sure.

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 02:35 PM)

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?

@  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.

I'll reserve judgement until we get more information on them.

Scarlet Witch would be a much better character if her powers were given any kind of definition. Instead of being able to fire blasts of energy and the like, if she is a mutant with power over "probability"...just make her incredibly lucky. She can influence card games, dice rolls, heck even "hex" someone by mentioning the likelihood of something happening to them. "I want you dead!" translates into a Heart Attack anywhere from a minute to 75 years down the line. "Slip and Fall Down" on a recently wet surface being infinitely more likely to happen.

They're doing a Dr. Strange movie, right? Seems the perfect place to start to define her powers as being Magic, or indistinguishable from it.

I HATE the Scarlet Witch! I hate her. I hate the way her powers are so ill defined that they are pretty much whatever the current writer defines them as. I hate her for marrying a robot. I hate her for having psychic kids with a robot. I hate her for being the marvel U's Deus Ex Machina to EVERYTHING. I hate her for hugging her brother in the Ultimate Universe. I hate Loeb for spelling that out in his jivey run on the book when it was previously only eluded to and easily ignored.


Tony Stark once died, got replaced by a teenage version of himself, and then was brought back to life and merged with this teenage version.

Tony Stark was also once taken over by Ultron, who shapeshifted Tony's body into a naked, metal version of the Wasp.

They tend to tone down the really ridiculous stuff when they port things over to the movies. I imagine they'll give her a more defined powerset and they'll definitely not bring over the incest stuff from the Ultimate universe.

In theory, depending on how true they want to make Ms. Marvel's backstory in line with the comics, it requires an explanation of the alien race of the Kree and of Captain Marvel.

Scarlet Witch, especially if she's just a regular Witch now since she can't be a mutant, just IS.

Yeah, Miss Marvel is an Avengers 3 type character; since round two and three are getting more Space based with GOTG and a apparently Planet Hulk movie planned.

I fully expect her to be a hell of a lot more normal in the film and nothing like the mess in the comics. I'm not stupid enough to think all that crap will be translated to the screen as is. Seriously, that's just dumb. I just effing hate the character for everything she is and I feel no need to see her in a film series I love.

If I end up liking her it'll be because they make her into something entirely different... kinda like why I liked Ryan Reynold's Hal Jordan.

I like Wanda fine for who she was when I got into comics in the late 80s. I'm not super thrilled with everything Bendis did to/with her in the modern era.

If I boiled down her essence to its basics at her beginning for the film I get: Odd quiet/sheltered shy girl "overprotected" by both her father and twin brother her whole life but with a strength inside she hasn't had to discover yet. She has the ability to cause highly improbable and unpredictable events to occur; either miraculously good or catastrophically evil. Other than some innate control over whether the hexes are good or bad the power is totally out of her control and shows hints of being terrifyingly powerful.


-ZacWilliam, also it bears repeating that The Vision was NEVER a robot. He was an artificial being, a synthoid whose body systems were designed to exactly duplicate organic systems and who was a fully emotional, sentient human being, basically with the mind and feelings (but not memories) of Simon Williams. It's not like she married a toaster. The predjudice the two got was fairly well handeled in the comics at the time iirc.

I don't get the Vision hate in this thread:
Wasn't everyone giddy that he might be the "return" of Agent Coulson at one point? Plus, coming from the animation side of things, I have to say a GREAT setup for a future film would be to have Tony create Vision and/or Ultron as part of his "retirement" to help fight guys like Thanos (akin to how things developed in the Avengers cartoon.

Which sets up Ultron as a potential villain in Avengers 3.

It's a shame John Byrne thought differently. It took ages for the Vision to recover from what Byrne did to him, and it could be argued there's still some damage left over from that awfulness.

I'm sorry. I'm sure this is a source of major contention for the actors and studios (Being paid in regards to their worth so other studios don't short change them in the future), but I can't help but think that even with the "pittance" payout of $200,000...I could pay off every single one of my debts and still have a huge chunk of that money leftover.
