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

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.

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.

@  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

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.

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)

Yeah, this is clearly meant to be the story of how Gotham spirals out of control without Thomas Wayne around to clean it up (which, in previous versions of the mythology, is why one of the mob heads had him taken out). I'm guessing that a large chunk of the first season will be Gordon & Bullock investigating the Wayne homicide, only to get stonewalled (since the GCPD is firmly in the pockets of the same mob that had the Waynes killed).

Probably the show will gradually get darker and darker (mob war, runaway crime rate, Gordon's failed marriage, Bruce "acting out," the Red Hood appearing as a mob hit-man, etc), before finally ending with Gordon transfering to Chicago at the same time Bruce finally runs away, both wondering if the city is too far gone, knowing that it'll only get worse, but somehow unable to truly give up on it. . .

I'll give this a watch; but I agree, that if it starts to go down the Smallville route I'm out.  I put up with 10 years of that show just because I was already watching and I wanted to see how it ended.  But I agree that it did get to a ridiculous point where it was like they were just trying to find reasons for him to not put on the costume; and by the time he did it seemed like half of Metropolis knew his friggin' secret identity!

 

So far it seems like Bruce becoming Batman will be more like a sub-plot to the show, which I'm OK with, but I don't want to have to wait 10 years to see him put on the mask.  Like it said in that first press release, I'd rather they have the storyline skip ahead a couple years each season.  So the kid in the trailer doesn't look 8/9 he looks more 12/13.  So if he's 12 in the first season have him be 14 when we come back for the second season.  And have each season have it's own self-conatined story arc that gets resolved in the season finale; except for who killed the Waynes, that should be left for Bruce to uncover.

 

Absolutely nothing about this interests me. The whole thing just stinks of DC, yet again, not having any idea what to do with their properties.

I read an article that made the point that the problem is that it's not DC who's making these decisions, it's Warner Brothers.  Unlike Marvel who has Marvel Studios which is dedicated to making nothing but Marvel movies, there is no "DC Studios".  All the decisions for the DC movies are made by WB bean counters, which is why we haven't gotten a Wonder Woman movie yet because the corporate dick-bags think the world "isn't ready for a Wonder Woman movie", but Marvel is about to release a movie that stars a 3 foot tall talking space raccoon!

This reminds me of Mike Costa talking about how he didn't understand Transformers because he can't relate to a toaster or whatever.  You don't avoid the hero because you can't relate to him, you humanize the hero until you can.

Thing is, you don't really have to like Superheroes for this show to work. There shouldn't be ANY in this show. Related to Batman or not, at its core this is a Crime Drama about a city that is slowly going to hell in hand-basket to the point where it seems like nothing can save it.

I wonder if the show would get far enough that it could eventually introduce Batman in full, but still have the story be told from Gordon's point of view as he works to first trust and then work with the Batman.

I feel like they kind of screwed the pooch on that one when they introduced all the Batman rogues in the trailer.  They have kind of a hard time existing without Batman, and I don't think Jim Gordon has an archnemesis to speak of that Batman hasn't caused or defeated himself.

Gotham wasn't always a bad place to live, that's something that most stories comment on a few times. Right now it's not sunk into the completely corrupt hellhole it will be. Right now we're seeing how Gotham ends up to the point it needs someone like Batman. The typical Batman villains are either nobodies or small fish. They're not actually dealing with Penguin, Riddler, or Poison Ivy; they're dealing Oswald Cobblepot who's just getting into organized Crime, they're dealing with seemingly paranoid nerd, they're dealing with woman who's likely just getting involved with eco-terrorism. They're only called by their villain names in the trailer, I'm hoping, because that is who the general public knows them as more.

 

Hell, at this point even Zsasz, since he was brought up as a possible character, hasn't yet been pushed over the edge, and is still a normal person. Depending on if they use him and how close they stick to his origins, he doesn't become a serial killer until after the Oswald has become the Penguin and uses his casino to cheat him out of everything he has. That's why we seem to be getting characters like Miss Fish, to be the villains before of Gotham before the town went to hell.

I suppose we'll actually have to wait and see how they approach it, but I'm betting the use of regular names instead of villain titles won't stick around for long.

 

I'm far more curious about criminals Gordon actually takes down, since he can't be entirely useless before Batman shows up.

i dont understand this:

 

 

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: My assumption has been that the reason this TV show can be done — rights-wise — is because Batman himself is not in it. That way, it doesn’t overlap with any films. Is that correct?

 

and im not being snarky lol i really dont get why batman cant be on tv

 

ill give this a go for atleast one season. i like they got it all planned out, but that can also work against them. hopefully they will allow for new ideas that pop up

and im not being snarky lol i really dont get why batman cant be on tv

 

Could be referring to one of two things...

 

1) Could be assuming this is a Fox licensed show, similar to how Fox has a license to use X-Men, which would mean there are two "owners" of live action rights for Bat characters, WB (the movies) and Fox (the TV show). However, from what i've seen so far, this is a WB made show, that Fox is buying for the network (like how Netflix is buying a Daredevil series from Marvel, rather than making a Daredevil series themselves).  So it's WB owning the show and the movies, so no licensing issues.

 

or

 

2) In the past, WB movie division people have been very much against having the bat characters show up elsewhere.  This is why you pretty much didn't see any non-Batman bat characters in JL/JLU for example.

For two decades?

 

Batman's been at it for 75 years with little in the way of lasting results.

 

In all seriousness though, yes...two decades would be about right, I think. Batman's rogues are almost universally people with deep, deep psychological scars. Those don't simply manifest overnight. Gotham is a setting that gives us a chance to see how Oswald Cobblepot becomes a ruthless black marketeer slash public philanthropist. To create mutated plant strains and deadly neuro-toxins against Humans? Ivy would need decades of experience and experiments to pull something like that off. Johnathan Crane and Hugo Strange working to understand the human psyche but indulging private fantasies as they both descend down their various corridors of madness. Heck, Jervis Tetch wouldn't be surprising to see working at Blackgate at this point.

 

All the while you have an idealistic Jim Gordon and newly minted District Attorney Harvey Dent working to clean up the streets, with a cynical Bullock adding a world weary grounding to the zeal of the "Dynamic Duo". And who knows, possibly even taking some money on the side to one of the various crime families of Gotham. And we see the gradual wearing down of two defenders of truth. Jim becoming disillusioned and requesting a transfer - leaving Dent to keep fighting against a system that makes a mockery of lasting justice. Where the only true determiner is the flip of a coin...

 



I'll give this a watch; but I agree, that if it starts to go down the Smallville route I'm out.  I put up with 10 years of that show just because I was already watching and I wanted to see how it ended.  But I agree that it did get to a ridiculous point where it was like they were just trying to find reasons for him to not put on the costume; and by the time he did it seemed like half of Metropolis knew his friggin' secret identity!

 

Wasn't that mostly because the actor playing Clark had it written in his contract that he would never have to put on the iconic suit?

 



Thing is, you don't really have to like Superheroes for this show to work. There shouldn't be ANY in this show. Related to Batman or not, at its core this is a Crime Drama about a city that is slowly going to hell in hand-basket to the point where it seems like nothing can save it.

 

Yeah. Take Batman and Joker and replace them with any National Security Agent and Terrorist Madman and the plot of The Dark Knight doesn't suffer any. I can't see why something like that wouldn't work on the small screen. For a "big" as the movie was, the focus was extremely small.

 



i dont understand this:

 


 

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: My assumption has been that the reason this TV show can be done — rights-wise — is because Batman himself is not in it. That way, it doesn’t overlap with any films. Is that correct?

 

and im not being snarky lol i really dont get why batman cant be on tv

 

Because at this point in time, Batman is the only guaranteed breadwinner at the box office for WB/DC. They aren't going to just let him "downgrade" to television.

One concern the comments give me is Batman is already a difficult character to do right, with alot of recent media turning him into the unstoppable meme because he has to compete with superhumans. The Nolan movies shot for realistic and instead created a ridiculous bore and even the Arkham games have issues for me. Gotham isn't fully Batman's story, but I'd prefer to know it's in the hands of someone who actually enjoys superheroes enough to respect them, know the legacy and wanna do something fresh.

I'll give this a watch; but I agree, that if it starts to go down the Smallville route I'm out.  I put up with 10 years of that show just because I was already watching and I wanted to see how it ended.  But I agree that it did get to a ridiculous point where it was like they were just trying to find reasons for him to not put on the costume; and by the time he did it seemed like half of Metropolis knew his friggin' secret identity!

 
Wasn't that mostly because the actor playing Clark had it written in his contract that he would never have to put on the iconic suit?

It was also because the show was only supposed to last four or five years. "No tights, no flights" made sense when it was "Clark in high school."
