  1. While it seems odd they're starting off this shared universe with at least some of the characters being established, I really don't want to see Superman or Batman's origin story again so maybe it's just as well. A middle aged Batman and a young Superman also seems like an unusual choice. I enjoyed Gunn's Suicide Squad and Peacemaker so I will definitely be giving the new movies and shows a shot. How bad could they be?
  2. Can we sue for stuff that is shown that never got released? There were a couple of things from the Toy Biz days I was looking forward to. We should get a class action going.
  3. A 6 inch scale Dragonfly would be great. So would a Terrordrome. Not to mention a Thunder Machine. That last one would be my first pick.
  4. I read the article somewhere announcing Gunn was scrapping Cavill in favor of a reboot. Fine, not a big surprise. The DCU has been a mixed bag and how many more movies are they really going to make with that cast? Rebooting is inevitable. I felt bad for Cavill who seemed like he was getting jerked around a bit. The DCU is getting rebooted. Fine. Hope it's good. I will check it out, either in the theaters or on HBOMax or whatever they're going to change the name to. The interesting part of the article was reading the comments. Woah. There was a stream of comments just slamming this new movie that hasn't even been written yet. People vowing never to watch it. Why? Because Cavill is getting jerked around? Because the DCU was so great? It seemed like some overreaction. I understand Gunn's new tweet. I liked the Guardians movies. I liked his Suicide Squad movie. I'm hoping Peacemaker gets a season 2 despite the reboot. I'm looking forward to seeing what new thing he does with Superman and the rest of DCU. It could be great. I'm not going to condemn the movie before it's even written.
  5. Action figures hooked me back in to buying them with Toy Biz's Spider-Man. The figures are quite crappy by today's standards but they were great at the time. Spidey was a big part of my childhood and I wish I'd had figures that cool as a child. Their whole 5 inch line was really cool and I went in deep. Then Marvel Legends came out. Wow. Whole other level. I've seen more and more adults in the toy aisles hunting for figures over the years. Now it's all online which just makes it easier. There's just so many quality figures being made, I see no reason to stop. The name "kidult" is a bit lame though. I'm saying this as someone who embraces being a Trekkie.
  6. Buzzer and Ripper have been announced but not Torch? That would be scandalous. I'm going to assume it was some oversight by Hasbro.
  7. I'm fine with the casting of the major players in the DCU I just think the stories have been weak. The Superman movies have been flawed but I don't think that's Cavill's fault. Gal Gadot works for me as Wonder Woman but I thought the first movie was a bit over-rated and the second one was just a bit silly. It reminded me of getting the kids in the audience to clap to get Peter Pan to fly. If they decide to do a re-launch built around Matt Reeves Batman, I'd be fine with that too. They could do an Earth 1, Earth 2 thing.
  8. As long as they come with "real monster smell" I am totally in
  9. I also like the Lady Jaye figure. I'm not a completist but I like all the figures that's I've gotten. I just checked Hasbro Pulse. It says Zaranna is shipping 12.5. I can't wait for more Deadnoks. In fact, I'd really like them to do a 3 pack of Ripper, Torch and Buzzer, just to get me started. If they want to Haslab the Thunder Machine, I'd probably buy it.
  10. Have there been any pictures showing how these figures look next to ML or GI Joe?
  11. What a disaster! Hopefully he called the Red Cross. They were invented for stuff like this.
  12. Though perhaps gimmicky, the female Cobra soldiers look very well done.
  13. Wow. What amazing figures. I don't really want to start a new line but these are pretty tempting.
  14. Those are some really great pictures. Very dynamic. I can't wait until mine arrives. I need some Dreadnoks though.
  15. Thanks for the heads up about Serpentor and Mindbender. I got both. Back to Has-bro.
  16. I'm sure everyone has their favorite Green Lantern, but I think focusing on John Stewart and maybe dialing back the scope sounds promising. Character first, spectacle second.
  17. I'm glad Cavill is sticking around as Superman. It wasn't like those were great movies and he was the weak link. So far the DC universe has put out some flawed movies. That's not Cavill's fault. I liked him in the Snyder cut. I'm hoping the storytellers at DC give us a chance to see what he can do.
  18. So I see he's still sold out. Is this just some kind of cruel tease? Thanks for nothing, Has-blow.
  19. Those are some pretty cool looking figures
