Never had any of the Masters Of The Universe toys but I did like the highly detailed and articulated look of them. I wanted Hasbro to produce an equally highly detailed and articulated range of toys based on Transformers Pretenders outer shells from the 1980s. Although they wouldn't be Pretenders with an inner transformable robot and characters like Thunderwing would have vehicle kibble but would not be able to transform.

Still sad that Mattel didn't even take Neca up on the offer to continue the series. Supposedly, NECA initially tried to get Mattel to license the line (with Mattel's name still on it), but had to settle on "Staticion figures "

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 08:04 PM)

every non-Skeletor or He-Man was like winning a battle

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 08:04 PM)

it was just such a difficult line to collect!

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 08:04 PM)

I still have all my 2002 MOTU figures and even though they're usually in storage I don't think I could bear to part with them

@  Echowarrior : (26 June 2017 - 08:02 PM)

Same here. The show that went with it was surprisingly good.

@  RichardT1977 : (26 June 2017 - 08:01 PM)

I totally agree with you about 2002 MotU though.

@  Rycochet : (26 June 2017 - 06:50 PM)

Because people want some approximation of the look and feel of the vintage console and playing experience? It's not like the Mini-Snes is being produced instead of these games being released on the switch VC, that'll happen eventually anyway

@  RichardT1977 : (26 June 2017 - 06:39 PM)

Sega did it with some of their Genesis titles for the PS3 and XBox 360, and Midway did the same. Several times.

@  RichardT1977 : (26 June 2017 - 06:39 PM)

Instead of making classic consoles with classic games built in, why not release those games in classic sets for the Switch?

@  Rycochet : (26 June 2017 - 06:25 PM)

The fate of 2002 MOTU still makes me sad, I loved that line.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 June 2017 - 05:59 PM)

Bah. There are many many toys rarer than Movieverse toys. Any character that wasn't He-Man or Skeletor for instance! :)

@  Paladin : (26 June 2017 - 05:16 PM)

Nintendo consoles are the only things rarer than new waves of Movieverse toys.

@  Telly : (26 June 2017 - 04:12 PM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 June 2017 - 03:48 PM)

Nintendo claims they'll be producing "significantly more" units of the SNES, so maybe there's a chance. It'd be better this time if they just took pre-orders, and based their production on that

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 03:46 PM)

Nobody is getting that.

@  Bass X0 : (26 June 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Anyone getting the SNES Classic with StarFox 2?

I have yet to see any TR wave 5 items at retail in my area, only in Internet reports from overseas.

@  unluckiness : (26 June 2017 - 09:28 AM)

They're clogging shelves here, which is odd. I expected the Generations toys to be somewhat cut down in favor of movie stuff.

@  Pennpenn : (26 June 2017 - 08:11 AM)

I dunno, I got a bunch of "Blitzwing and Octone cosplaying as Megatron and Optimus Prime" in my local TRU, does that help?

@  Paladin : (26 June 2017 - 07:52 AM)

so will TitanReturns Blitzwing & Octone ever actually come out or have they just vanished into neverland?

@  Dekafox : (26 June 2017 - 07:10 AM)

With explosions instead of pouches and pockets.

Now if we could explode Justin Bieber, I might pay to watch it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (25 June 2017 - 11:47 PM)

Bieber isn't nearly as over-the-top as explosions director.

@  Bass X0 : (25 June 2017 - 11:35 PM)

Michael Bay is Justin Bieber of the movie industry- everyone makes fun out of his over- the- top -style but he keeps pulling in huge amounts of money

Nitro's gonna be a pain in the butt to find, isn't he?

@  Pennpenn : (25 June 2017 - 03:51 AM)

Actually, on the subject of TLK toys, the voyager Nitro Zues or whatver looks pretty good. If I see it cheap I might give it to the Thunderwing head.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 09:58 PM)

Been playing a bit of Saints Row 4 and honestly the Blast Blast is hilariously overpowered.

It actually has half decent gimmicks too.

It's still crap but at least it takes up less space.

Golden Glider's a Rogue? And kinda alive? Interesting. Considering she only slices people up with her skates as her gimmick before, that's a step up. And they used the kid as the Trickster instead of Jesse James, hmm. Maybe I will look this up, thanks icon-hotrod.gif

Yeah, Glider's gotten a major overhaul; is somewhat alive (in a coma but aware of the world) and no more skates. icon-fire.gif She is Cold's driving force in the series making sure she stays alive until she's completely recovers. She's been kinda the heart of the Rogues and is a relationship with Mirror Master due to their common bond of not really able to be part of the world.

Check out Rogues #1 (Flash 23.3) if you want to get an idea of what the Nu52 Rogues are like; Trickster doesn't show up much there due to being in prison for most of it, but the rest are for the whole issue. It goes over the basics of their origins and introduces each to certain extent though Cold and Glider get the most focus. I feel it really does a good job of showing how they're pretty much a family and that they aren't really villains despite being career criminals. (I really love how they demonstrate that in the issue) If you enjoy them in this issue, I definitely say catch up on the Flash series to see each one much more in-depth as each one gets at least one issue to really shine. They're a large part of why I continue to read the Flash series.

Character Descriptions For 'Iris' & 'Detective West' In THE FLASH TV Show


Casting Director David Rapaport confirmed that Barry Allen will have support in the upcoming Flash tv show from Iris West, and Detective West. Well now we have some leaked descriptions, and they've made a few changes to the comic book incarnations of these characters.


Our own Alex Lynch (by way of his site Bludhaven Banter) has come across a couple of character descriptions for the upcoming CW take on The Flash. We saw Barry Allen make his debut on last night's episode of Arrow, but we know that when he gets the spotlight in his own series he'll be joined buy a couple of names familiar to comic readers: Iris and Detective West. What's immediately apparent from the below descriptions is that these versions of the characters will be African American.


IRIS - 22-28 - African-American - As smart as she is beautiful, Iris is in grad school studying psychology. She's also Barry's mile a minute, fast-talking, quick-witted best friend. Her father, Detective West, took in Barry when his mother was murdered, and his father was wrongly accused and imprisoned for her murder. In a tough childhood for Barry, she was the one "not tough" thing. She's unaware of Barry's strong feelings for her.

DETECTIVE WEST - Late 40s to Early 50s - African American -Detective West is an honest, blue-collar cop who's seen it all. A soulful, funny caring father to Iris, and a surrogate father to Barry, West came up through the foster system himself. He took in Barry after his mother's murder and his father's imprisonment. He believes in Barry and supports Barry's efforts to prove his father's innocence.


So a race change -- not uncommon these days, and surely not a big deal. Of course Iris West is Wally West's (another character to take up the Flash mantle) Aunt, so can we assume we'll also see him zip onto out screens at some point?


So would this mean a possible black Wally down the line?

I know very little of the Flash's lore outside of what I've seen of him in the DCAU cartoons, the Young Justice cartoon, and the odd appearance he'd make in whatever mainstream media. So I'll be going into this show with a mostly clean slate.

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.

I hope this is good, as The Flash has a lot of potential as a TV show with Barry being a cop; that's something 'new' to casual viewers, a hero that actually works inside of and with the law rather being a strict vigilante. Try and blend a bit of Cop drama into regular superheroics, as Flash doesn't have a lot of actual powered villains (unless they go Nu52's route, which could be a later season twist). Have him start with regular criminals, maybe some pre-rogues, who later on get weapons and tech to try and be on even footing with the flash, with a season finale being a gathering of them forming the Rogues and being a more serious threat to Flash. Save guys like Zoom/Reverse-Flash and Grodd for much later seasons. Later seasons could also have the Rogues realizing the as long as they are tech-based they can be neutralized from just being separated from their tech and go the new 52 route of using a gene-splicer to give them super powers based on their gadgets.

 

Of course, I'd also go with the occasional 'flash-lite' story and focus on one of, or the entire, Rogues showing how they aren't simple black-and-white villains, and have strict morals about not killing and minimize collateral damage and can be somewhat heroic if they want. Which could really make a Grodd themed 'Gorilla Warfare' type arc really interesting as Flash finds himself allied with them to stop Grodd and his gorillas.

Nope. No powers. But they have been teasing a Star Labs...I think it was a Hadron Collider....all season. I'm assuming there will be some terrible accident sometime later in the season.

Yeah, Barry was a special guest star who seems to be continuing into next week's episode due to this episode now being a multi-parter, and instead of a speedster superhero he was a forensics investigator who had a bad habit of not being very punctual (arriving at crime scenes a few minutes after everyone else, missing his train, showing up here and there at the last minute, etc.). He also proved quite adept at his job, being more than useful to Oliver's latest hero escapades and outclassing Felicity's usefulness at times. This was probably one of the more likable a versions of Barry Allen out there.

I'm pretty sure he won't get powers on this show. The way they spoke about it they planned for him to do so but decided to split all that off into his own show.

We'll see I guess.
