  1. Actually there was no speculation about it. Mega-Plex in a thread said they were CD. CD was banned after continuely abusing the site and if you are going to go around and act like you are someone who was banned then you are going to face the same result. Now after the fact that they realized that perhaps acting like they were CD was not a good thing they came back and said they were just joking. Now maybe they were and maybe they werent, I don't know but quit frankly I am far to busy and the mods have better things to do then fool with such foolishness. Instead of praising and tring to act like someone who has caused the problems in the first place you all should maybe start looking at them and asking them why they felt they needed to cause such disruptions that in turn resulted in such drastic actions being taken as having people being banned????
  2. Just picked up this issue today. Continues to impress. Im glad Bruce actually told Catwoman. I remember a few years back when it was hyped he was gonna tell Vivky Vale and it turned out to be a dream or something dumb like that. I also like the scenes between Nightwing and Batman. Batman-"your right" Nightwing- "I am?" Batman- "Its none of your damn business."
  3. Well this is mostly speculation on my part but if I had to guess for the reasoing why they orginally had planned to put the Yellow shirt Kirk with the Deluxe set was because they wanted to have it come with something that would really attract the consumer. My feeling though the Enterprise bridge sets were cool the fact they came with the exact same figures most people had just bought on cardback was why they didnt sell that well. So I think they new the retailers would be hesitant to pick up anymore deluxe sets so they tried to put something really enticing in the TOS deluxe set. However unfortunetly it wasnt enough to overcome the retailers fears that the deluxe sets just wouldnt sell so the retailers decided not to pick it up. At this point things had already moved to far along to go back and change the assortment line-ups for the first two waves. So the only alternative for now was the convention exclusive route. If the first two series of TOS sell well then I imagine retailers will be more responsive to future waves of Trek toys and AA will get the Yellow Shirt Kirk in a future wave of figures. You all have to keep in mind that Trek is not a easy lisence to deal with. I am sure it cost a pretty penny to obtain from Paramount because of the Trek name yet at the same time Star Trek toys have never been a huge hit in the toy asiles. Playmates I think had the most success with the license but then they were making the toys when Trek was probably at its highest point in popularity were now I think its at one of its lowest if not lowest points in its popularity. Having to start the line based on a new untried and fairly unheard of series like Enterprise and then a movie that bombed (which I am sure was due to Paramounts wishes not AA's) didnt help things either. Art Ayslum is not a huge company like Hasbro or Mattel and Trek is a very difficult license to have and overall I think AA has put out some pretty decent products and the ones that are coming I think are going to be even better so you might try cutting them a little slack before condeming them to being fools. At least they were willing to take the risk of grabbing the Trek lisense and giving us Cool Trek toys at all.
  4. I believe I read somewhere the green shirt was usually pulled out whenever Mr. Shatner wold put on a few extra pounds. It hid his weight better than the tight yellow one. It was my understanding his weight would fluxuate on a regular basis. Thats assuming the thing I had read about it was true.
  5. Here are some more
  6. Some more new ones have been added over the last few days. Most recently are a few new Transformers.
  7. Zion being still part of the Matrix has also crossed my mind. If Zion wasn't another form of the Matrix then how would it always be rebuilt each time the architech reloaded the Matrix?????
  8. I caught that as well Knytewatch. It would be a very interesting subline indeed.
  9. Oh and I for one hope it comes with the sticker and not the rubsign. Never did like those rubsigns.
  10. Yep, these guys are Mousers http://afigures.com/g/?mode=view&album=TMN...ize=500&start=0 and a Cardasian is a Star Trek Alien.
  11. Its a very good story. I started reading Batman again with 612. Is the guy who has been pulling the string Two-Face or is her just the next villian in line to get a shot at Bats? Also can someone catch me up to speed on a few things. Where is Robin (Tim Drake), Why does Gordon no longer have a badge? It seema Batman and Catwoman have a thing going on but I was flipping through the newest issue of JLA and it seemed Batman and Wonder Woman were dating or something, whats up with that????
  12. Check it out http://tformers.net/i/a/dd/Joe_vs_Trans01_...5_16_revise.jpg and an interview with DD's Josh Blaylock on the GIJoe/TF crossover. http://tformers.com/article.php?sid=1355

  14. Hey Jim, I have Hounds spare tire that I found in my parents attic a few weeks ago. Since I know longer have the actual toy, if your interested I can let u have it.
  15. Soundwave orginally came with Buzzaw who only appeared in the cartoon once or twice. Laserbeak was the one they always showed in the toon. Lazerbeak was red and Buzzaw was orange. On a side note, I just dug out my old Rumble cassette a few weeks ago from my parents attic so he will soon have a new home -
  16. First Contact was the best TNG movie IMO. Generations had good scenes but overall was kinda boring for Kirk's final time on screen. The bad guy was weak and All Picard had to do is leave the Nexus and enter a point in time when Sauron was still on the Enterprise and then just taken him prisoner. Insurection was ok but again seemed more like a long episode then a blockbuster motion picture. Nemesis was to rushed and to many lot wholes. Here is how a rank all the Trek films. 10 being the worst 1 being the best. 10.) Insurection 9.) Undiscovered Country 8.) The Final Frontier 7.) Nemesis 6.) Generations 5.) Motion Picture 4.) Voyage Home 3.) First Contact 2.) Search For Spock 1.) Wrath of Khan Now to be honest I can sit down and watch any one of them. I don't really hate any of them but some I like alot less than other. And yes I may be in a minority here but Undiscovered Country is one of my least favorite ones.
  17. You guys beat me to it but can read about the issue here http://www.americandreamcomics.com/index.p...d=1396&catid=21
  18. Well they have done it. They basically established that everthing after tonights episode is a change in history. The time travler dude said that people in the future came back and told them to attack Earth. So initially this attack was never supposed to happen. They have now left the windo open to change whatever they want. Also interesting that Starfleet must not yet be a combined military. By Kirks time All branches of the Military are under the Starfleet banner but I guess thats not the case now. I have a question though. Who is to say the Time Traveler guy didnt really send the probe to get Enterpirse to go off on this wild goose chase in the expanse to get them out of the way for his plans. Archer bought his story just a little to easily I think.
  19. I saw a pic of one of these last week and asked DDD if any such figure was in the works. He said no. So don't know if its an error or people playing arounf in the factories or what but I don't think this is a actual figure coming though it does look pretty good.
  20. Well actually the best way would be to post a link to the page with the picture you want people to see so they have to go over to that site and see it. Besides bandwidth theft which can get costly when you hot link a picture there are other things to consider. First I am sure the people who put all the hard work into a site didnt do it for the purpose to have all their pictures shown on another site. I am sure they would prefer you went over to their site check out the picture in question and maybe even look around at other things. Second many sites get the money to keep them going from sponsors. So if you are looking at the picture here, there is little chance you will see their sponors buttons or banners and click on them, therefore making it harder for them to maintain sponsors which means its harder to maintain income that keeps the site going. As 8Speed pointed out people are going to do these things anyways and in response sites will try and implement filters that sometimes blocks out the pics all togther for some people and other will try and stick big ugly watermarks on the pictures that half the time block out the picture you are tring to see to begin with but that still doesn't make it right or cool to do. So basically these are just common courtesys I would hope people would extend to ADC and hope that we all here can extend to other sites.
  21. Actually I finnally got it finished tonight.
  22. Ok I am going on record here to say that I think it will be revield in the 3rd movie that Neo is some type of program and not a human. I think Neo was an anomolly that was created to think it was human so that it might learn what being human truly means. I think Neo will succeed because he has learned how to love, which the other versions did not. In doing this he will bring peace and harmony to man and machines, unless Agent Smith has his way.
