    Kinda nice seeing some new Star Trek TNG figures on the market.. I enjoy the Playmates line, so can't wait to see the new one's ! 

    These seem interesting, but when is Enterprise gonna get some love? Sure you see merch occasionally, but it's few and far between. Sad state of affairs for a great show whose only real crime was being, as Connor "Trip" Trinneer once put it, "One trip to the well to many."

    I think the fact that people are mad about the joke is extremely funny AND ironic lol if you're mad about it........it's kinda sad.

    Sure, in a way. On the other hand, seeing as how the hundreds of bucks a year I drop on their stuff helps pay these douche-bags' pay checks, I'm not sure I'm down with being a living joke to the over-paid intellectual flat-lines.

    Shazam and Aquaman were good, I even liked Wonder Woman, Birds of Prey was okay but underwhelming (because it was nothing like Bird of prey comics), thing is all these movies to me were more or less ok but none of them had this exciting concept of using interconnected universe, I think they learned very wrong lesson from BvS thinking that totally divorcing from interconnected narrative will make their movies better, when it was actually movies themselves not doing it right,  so my hope is that this Flashpoint movie will be somewhat better than everything they did before.

    Also I could be wrong but I think this won't be classic Supergirl, who is likely dead in DC movie verse, but actually female version of Superman from parallel reality where every character is gender bent like Earth 11 from comics, hence why they went with actress that has dark hair.  

    Of course personal mileage will vary, but I think the general consensus is Wonder Woman and Aquaman were the first totally successful DCCU movies. MOS, BVS, and WW84 were successful but extremely divisive, Suicide Squad was a disappointment but Warners carried it for a bit due to Margot Robbie's brief status as an "It Girl." Birds of Prey was a flop and, barring the intervention of rabid James Gunn fans, I don't see the new Suicide Squad movie doing much better.

    BTW: Who wants to bet the new Suicide Squad pulls a Machete 2 and Harley appears just long enough to take a bullet?

    This is definitely exciting news, it seems like Flash movie is Justice League 2.0 but with different character, it makes movie I was already interested even way more interesting.  Hopefully they will deliver on script and story.

    I'm still not getting my hopes up. As far as DC movies go, Warner Bros. has a long and proud history of pulling crap from the jaws of victory.

  5. Can a comic series this full of cliches, over-used tropes and in which literally every character is a "pastiche" of other existing characters REALLY be called "Ground Breaking?"

    Then again, we are talking Bob Kirkman, whose only claim to fame is rehashing the EXACT same zombie story EVERYONE has been telling since Romero in '68.

    I have zero attachment to this franchise and yet I still want these figures.  They just look like cool action figures.  I find myself rooting for NECA in all that they do, even though I only have a hand full of their offerings.  They just seem to knock stuff out of the part right and left.

    I'm just the opposite. Except for the Target Turtles I couldn't care less about Neca, but I'm COMPLETELY attached to this franchise.

    This is absurd. Especially because she didn't do anything. Not watching Mando anymore. She was one of the pillars of the show. This cancel culture has to stop.

    My sentiments exactly. Every day, in every way, the world seems to go a little more nuts.

    Congratulations to Gina though. This is America, neither she nor anyone else should have to work for a company where you're not allowed to speak your mind.

    Since these figures are based on animated series I wish Neca would apply same 6.5 inch (ish) scale they keep using for animated  and gaming TMNT figures, in that scale I would be super excited for these, but in 7 inch scale it's like ok, I might end up getting Phantom either way tho, we dont have decent collectible figure of him.

    I've been saying that all along. The really crazy thing though, is Neca ALSO classifies those animated and gaming TMNTs as "7 inch scale," so it could go either way.

    Pretty sure these will be in true 7 inch, but until I see some in-hand comparison shots, I'll remain hopeful.

    While expanding the story of the first two live-action "Pacific Rim" films, "Pacific Rim: The Black" centers on two siblings (a teenage boy and a young girl) who are forced to pilot an abandoned Jaeger across a hostile Australian landscape in a desperate attempt to find their missing parents.

    Okay, I get the old "Young Heroes Pilot Found Mecha" is one of the more popular tropes in anime/manga, and I've only seen the first Pacific Rim (and that was a while back), but I'm pretty sure Jaegerss didn't work like that.

  10. Not that I'm defending Walmart, but it's real easy to say "You're doing it wrong," from the other side of a computer screen. Fact is, things aren't great for anybody right now. But, you know, feel free to complain. I'm sure all those poor b-----ds working retail are just thrilled to hear the constant winning of grown-up men who can't find their toys. It's not like they're trying to keep up with lunatics hoarding toilet paper and hand sanitizer, not to mention making sure true necessities like food and medicine are there when we need them.
