Re: Vintage G1 (Walmart reuses). Your thoughts?

As much as I like the concept of them reissuing stuff through Wal-Mart, releasing old versions of figures that are available now seems a bit odd. I got the new(well, not so new now) re-release of Hot Rod out of nostalgia and remembering a present my mom got me for my birthday. I got the newer traile...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Was it like this during the Spanish Flu?

Re: Doctor Who Series 12 Thread

I've quite enjoyed both Series 11 and 12(well, except for Orphan 55. That one kind of hurt), and it seems like they're having a lot of fun. Not sure why it's not grabbing more fans, though. That being said, I don't know what the cultural zeitgeist around what the BBC is doing. I mean, I've got a sub...

Re: Latest DVD Purchases

While this technically isn’t a DVD, I just think it’s cool: ORSON WELLES CITIZEN KANE - 50th Anniversary Edition : It’s a two VHS tape set from 1991, and it’s the flimsiest blunt object I’ve ever come across. It feels like it weighs twenty pounds, because along with the two tapes, you get a copy of ...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Well, my guidance had helped before, perhaps it can again? :D GameStop Exclusive Transformers/Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Ectotron : Okay, I freely admit, the main reason I got this one was I thought they did a great job on the vehicle mode. It looks really good. And I have to admit, so does robot mode. Wel...

Re: [The video game thread]

As much as I like the convenience of digital games, there’s something less than satisfying about getting them sometimes. Not to mention torquing my thumb has kind of inhibited my video game playing until moving it in various directions doesn’t hurt so much. Castlevania Collection for the Switch. The...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

The local used game store started taking in toys a while ago. I think it was a joke initially(parents bring their kids in, kids bring in toys they aren’t using anymore, get store credit), but then it kind of took off. As an unfortunate side effect, Seth is currently knee deep in wrestling figures. B...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

SIEGE Ravage and Laserbeak : Pretty cool little figures, although I probably have to get Soundwave now. Laserbeak is currently perched on Titans Return Megatron’s arm, but poor Ravage is kind of lost in the shuffle. DNA DESIGN DK-10 SS IRONHIDE UPGRADE KIT : A pretty cool little kit, giving Ironhid...

Re: [The video game thread]

Despite the whole world jumping onto the Switch(Yes, even me. I like it, but I look at a portable system as something you can take with you when you get dragged into the hospital unexpectedly), I still favor my Vita. It’s a wonderful system. Lucky for me, PlayAsia still has plenty of physical copies...

Re: [The video game thread]

In addition to picking up Tokyo Tattoo Girls, muramasa Rebirth, Muv Luv and Muv Luv Alternative for the Vita, I decided to experiment with my Switch a little and make a Japanese eShop account. While I still prefer my Vita, it’s a lot easier to look at Japanese games on the Switch without having to f...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Siege Shockwave: When I saw this figure was coming out, I wanted to get it. And I have to admit, he’s pretty cool. And still has his gun mode. Yes, all the extra bits turn him into a space cruiser, but without them, he’s back to being a space gun.

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Siege Prowl : Again, good mold design, really neat vehicle mode, but..... in a way, he feels too squat and featureless from a distance. My first thought looking at him was, "Why not make the headlights blue? It's kind of like looking at a snowfield." Even just doing panel lines in black would help....

Siege Ironhide : I really like him. He looks big and bulky, I really like his vehicle mode, he’s really posable. The only thing that doesn’t work for me is his missile launcher rifle hammer thing. Fortunately I picked up Siege Sixgun as well, although I’m really having a problem arming Ironhide up ...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Studio Series #39 Cogman : Despite the fact that he is literally just a slight recolor of the regular deluxe TLK deluxe figure, I couldn’t find that figure when it came out, and now I have the raving nutcase in shiny silver. He does look pretty good, though. If the TLK deluxe version was supposed t...

Re: [The video game thread]

Interesting finds over the past few weeks. Resident Evil 2 Deluxe Edition GameStop Preorder- well, that’s a mouthful. I recommend the Albert version of the Samurai Edge. It’s a lot better than Claire’s starting gun. Okay, okay, that first one wasn’t all that interesting. SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy...

Re: [The video game thread]

Well, I finally did it. I now own a Nintendo Switch. I do have to admit, it’s kind of fun. I picked up Mega Man 11 for it and downloaded Senran Kagura Reflexions, And I’m enjoying both games. What I’d like to know is if there’s a way to turn the WiFi connection off so I can extend the battery life. ...
