just be happy your walmart even stocks voyagers. mine doesnt

Figures that Walmart finally restocks Studio Voyagers...with Wave ONE

@  ThunderWear : (19 January 2020 - 09:27 AM)

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)

Of course I had the idea to download all the pdfs like a week too late. Anyone got an archive?

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.

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)

@  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)

@  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?

@  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.

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

@  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?

There is absolutely nothing wrong with either of the previous two FF movies. I love them both. All they need to do is get Reed, Sue, and Ben to return, tweak the Thing effects to look better, and cast a new Johnny.

Seriously. We don't need a damn reboot.

You might not think so, but execs will until they get a film that makes back its budget at least 4-7 times over, which Rise of the Silver Surfer failed to do.

I'd argue that Doom was a terrible interpretation and the general tone and writting of the film rather missed the sense of exploration and pulp adventure that the FF has at its best.


-ZacWilliam, they weren't the worst superhero films I've seen. I would kinda like a Reed who came across as rather smarter and more focused. And an Invisible woman that did the same. Torch and Thing were fine but I doubt you'd get either back now.

Well after turning Galactus into a giant Cloud of doom it's their own fault. Admittedly a ginormous man in Purple and a tuning fork helmet wouldn't fly much in reality but they could of done much better.

But I'm with Magnus. The FF movies were decent enough as they are. I wouldn't mind Alba being replaced or Doom getting some one new. Replacing Johnny is a must now that Evans is now cemented as Cap But I'm cool with Chiklis as the Thing and Gruffudd as Reed still.

Doom I'll willingly give you. But he's a remarkable difficult character to get right both in terms of writing, acting, and especially looks. The actor would need to wear essentially an Iron Man suit covered in a costume to effectively pull it off. Not that I'm saying it's something I wouldn't happily want to see. icon-arcee.gif

I think one of the major things that ticked everyone off in Rise of the Silver Surfer was the whole Galactus thing. It tainted everyone's opinion of the whole film.

I didn't know anything about Galactus or much about the Silver Surfer before seeing the second Fantastic Four movie, and I still thought it was completely awful. Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis tried admirably, but the script, direction, effects, Thing suit, and Jessica Alba were all just terrible.

Definitely best rebooted, with the originals ignored. Shame it can't be by Marvel themselves.

Sue and Johnny Storm can both be black, why not? I do think it's stretching a bit more if they're of two different races and adopted or half-siblings or something. Keep it simple, and hueswap both or neither.

Maybe Donald Glover can be Johnny.

He is...and he isn't. I can't defend Rise of the Silver Surfer, but to me the first FF film worked because Doom wasn't Doctor Doom, ruler of Latveria and destroyer of all who opposed him. He was Victor Von Doom, businessman and philanthropist. In what is essentially the first outing of the character, the fact he came across as "off" is to be expected. Doctor Doom has had dang near 50 years of continuity building him up (and making him fall down...I'm looking at you Wearing the Skin of my Dead Ex Girlfriend Victor) - a film only having a two and a half hour run time isn't going to do him justice.

But taking it from the perspective of Victor Von Doom, who rules a Board Room and not a Country...I find his characterization acceptable. Also I'm probably one of the few people who actually really did enjoy his initial outfit. It retained that classic feel while being more in line with - again - what a businessman would wear.


I still fondly regard The Fantastic Four as one of the better Super Hero adaptations. The Rise of the Silver Surfer...I do not.

Rise of the Silver Surfer started off having a great doom, but once he was healed by the surfer's powers he was back to being not awesome again, which is a shame, because Doom running around with Surfer Powers should have been great.

In the first movie Doom's master plan was to shoot lightning around the city. In the second movie he just wanted to surf regardless of the dying planet.

No, Doom sucked in both.

In the beginning of rise when he was moping in his castle talking to himself? That could have been great things. And the surfing itself was fine, the ignoring of the dying planet; not so much.

But yeah, losing Doom to Fox is the worst part of them keeping the license. Now him and Tony will never time travel on the big screen together and that makes me sad. And no Dr. Strange crossover. And...

To be entirely fair, it's not that far of a stretch if you discover one day you can shoot lightning from your hands that you decide to take the opportunity to go on a GTA style rampage for no other reason then UNLIMITED POWAH!

I like them all because they're talented actors who fit the roles. Aisha Tyler can do just about anything, and I want a bit of Geordi Laforge in my Reed Richards.

I'm actually going to be slightly disappointed if we don't get an all black FF.

Personally, I liked the casting for the original movie except for Sue. They cast a pair of tits instead of real talent. Johnny, Reed and Ben were all fine.

I don't agree because I don't feel those actors fit at all, regardless of skin color. mostly Burton. I love the man but I don't want Reed to be an older man. I LOVE the Ultimate comics for making him younger, current status notwithstanding. They are a family but it's also an action flick. Plus he's rather short and I've never seen him hit those sharp, disconnected tones Reed would have.

I just don't think any of those fit.
