Newbie (1/14)



  1. I know I new to this thread but I've been trying to keep up with all of the posts as they are added and I agree with a lot of what has been said. I think that it would be a good idea to read the trade first before you see the movie. I've had too many experiences where I watch the movie and then read the book and when I'm done with the book or even while I'm still reading the book (depending on the length) I find that I sometimes get things switch around between what happened in the movie and what happened in the book. This does not happen to me nearly as much if I read the book first. You may be able to completely separate this and not have a problem but that is what works best for me. Also, it seems that there is a specific part toward the end of the movie that has been changed to make the movie seem more realistic in accordance with the times. I won't go into more detail because I don't want to spoil the trade or the movie for you, but as far as I know this is the most significant change that has been made between the trade and the movie. I also agree that reading the trade in today’s political climate will make the book seem less intense than reading it when it was first published in 1986. So much has changed from the cold war era to fear of a terrorist attach type climate we live in now. The problem I had was that I was only nine when the book came out and I was reading comics at the time but I didn't really grasp everything that Alan Moore had written in this series. As I go back a reread in as I get older the concepts get better and better every time I read it. So as long as you understand the cold war climate you will still have a great appreciation of the book but it won't be like reading it for the first time right after it was written.
  2. If we're going to use Thanos with the new powers that he was given by Death then shouldn't we also use the Darkseid who has control of the anti-life equation? If that's the case then Darkseid wins easily.
  3. Thanks to everyone!!!!!!!!!! Gotta say I'm glad to be here. Me and a friend were almost in a car accident driving to Memphis TN when the car did a few 360's of the road while it was raining. Luckily were both came out OK.
  4. The DC Direct Infinie Crisis Mongul will fit in scale wise better then the DC Superheroes line. Mongul is supposed to be bigger that Superman.
  5. Please count me in for one. I've checked all the stores in my area and no luck yet. But this weekend I'm going to a different town to look and if I find one (plus any extras) I'll let everyone know. Also, I'm not interested in the variant so if I find a variant I'll ship that out to someone who needs it.
  6. The wrestlers will be there all day Sunday but I'm not sure when Awesome Kong will be arriving. Roy Thomas will be there all day Sunday and he has a panel at 2:00 PM on Sunday too.
  7. This may be old news but I just found a link to this site that has pictures of Nite Owl and Rorschach figures based on the movie costumes. http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20191746,00.html The link was on the DC Comic home site.
  8. Could someone please post the link to where the pic's are located. I can't see the pic's on the boards at my work computer. Thanks
  9. Just wanted to bring this to everyone's attention. Most of you may not even be close enough to come to the show but I still wanted to post this because the guy who runs the show is a good friend of mine. On April 27 & 28 the Cape Comic Con will be back in Cape Girardeau Missouri. The show is run my Ken Murphy, the owener of one of the local comic book shows in Cape, Marvels and Legends. This is the 3rd Annual event for the Cape Comic Con. For the weekend there will be a costume contest, vendors, writers, and artists. There will also me gaming. The gaming will consist of: Heroclix Warhammer 400000 Magic Living Grey Hawk] Star Wars Minis Yu-Gi-Oh The link for the show is at: http://www.capecomiccon.com/ The website has a full list of guest and writers and vendors that will be in attendance this year. Just wanted to let everyone know.
  10. A $5.00 price hike seems like a lot but if the majority of the figures are larger scale and we have a BAF Foom of 22 to 25 in. I will probably buy them. If Foom turns out to be no bigger than Onslaught I'll have to pass on these series. I can't help but think that this $5.00 price increase will be a tool for Hasbro to see what kind of a realistic price increase they can put on the rest of the ML figures based on the response to these two Hulk lines.
  11. Just picked up the Previews Exclusive Ultimate Wolverine in the blue uniform. I like it a lot better than the regular. Also, I just got back from Nashville where I found Black Knight, Marvel Girl, Bucky, and another Hydra Soldier. And, a buddy of mine called me last friday from a Wal-Mart near where he lives and he found me an Astonishing Cyclops and another Hydra Soldier. That finishes this run of Marvel Legends for what I want. I passed on the X3 Colossus.
  12. I went with Ultron. I'd like to see a new bigger Dragon Man because the old one from Toybiz is too small (and I never got one) but I'd like to see Ultron first. This would be another major villian to add to my Avengers Villians group.
