    Pokémon GO - Friends & Trading

    This weekend all the former special event Pokemon are reappearing. I already caught several Dratinis and Larvitar this afternoon.

    Minimates price hike?

    Though my interest in all collectible things has waned over the last few years, the increased cost of Minimates has been an issue, impacting my willingness to collect. But it has been happening with everything. MP Transformers used to go for $50-70 a piece, and now they're typically over $100. Closer to $200 for Megatron, and apparently over $400 for the new Optimus Prime! Hot Toys figures also are now typically in the $235-250 range even for fairly basic figures. This is why we need the federal reserve hiking those interest rates!

    Muppets Minimates!

    I didn't realize the entire Electric Mayhem made it as Minimates. Damn. Need to get them now.

    Kubrick Talk

    I can't believe that guy was still updating that page as of 2017! You might want to copy and save that text in case the page stops going live at some point. Notice he provides a link to the defunct Kubrick Nation forum. I see that Medicom has their own historical list of Kubs with pictures here:

    They're not dead! How strange. I will say that Grand Theft Auto has had an odd history with collectibles, though. They released a single, 1/6 scale figure that was manufactured by Sideshow, but only sold on Rock Star's website: It was weird in that I wasn't aware of any other Sideshow figures, particularly at that time, that weren't also sold on Sideshow's website. And SSC was far from the go-to for exclusive 1/6 figures (most companies would look to Hot Toys). Hopefully more Kubricks are on the way!

    WWF Custom Minimate Preorder Thread

    He did have an unusual, heel vs. heel feud with Shawn Michaels over who got Sensational Sherry, as I recall. They had a "no punching in the face" clause in their match, which was later ripped off in a great scene from Anchorman

    Stan Lee passes away

    Few people have had more of an influence on my entertainment-related interests than Lee, Kirby, and Ditko. Those characters and comics he was involved in in the '60s are rarely rivaled in all the years since. His influence would be impossible to quantify. I've been reading early issues of the X-Men recently, which reminds me just how great he was. RIP.

    I actually do see a tiger almost every day, on my drive into work! He lives in a multi-million dollar enclosure a stone's throw from my office, and his only purpose in life is to entertain students and alumni. I wish I had his job.

    WWF Custom Minimate Preorder Thread

    Yeah, I'm not thinking of any other Canadian AWA champs at the moment. It's not either of the Rougeaus, none of the Harts, not Dino Bravo or Pat Patterson. Martel was a champ as part of Strikeforce, and I remember when he won the WCW TV title later in his career. I was really into his "The Model" gimmick. A friend and I actually re-enacted the blindfold match he had with Jake the Snake on my trampoline! I always liked the Boston Crab as a finishing move.

    Custom Marvel Minimate Preorder Thread

    I don't think I've ever heard of this guy, but he looks very cool. Like one of the thugs from Mad Max, which might have been the idea! That Mr. Fantastic cut-out is one of the coolest things I've seen Luke do. Outstanding.

    Pokémon GO - Friends & Trading

    I was in the lobby for a Giratina raid yesterday, and the game froze before the raid started. I'm not sure I'll have another chance, with how busy I've been at work

    Pokémon GO - Friends & Trading

    I read somewhere that the monkey, the penguin, and the plant turtle are the "starters" for this generation. So, I've been trying to gobble up as many as I can while they're relatively easy to find. Later on they could be appearing at the rate that the Kanto starters do, which isn't very much usually.* I've only evolved the beaver thing so far from Gen 4. I dig the more sophisticated sounds they have. How did folks here do with Beldum community day? I got over 600 candies, using up most of my Pinap berries in the process. And probably 6 or 7 shiny ones. One of which is very powerful, who I evolved into Metagross. I was really excited for this one, as Beldum is one of the Poke's I rarely get/see, and have been trying to build up just enough candies to get one strong, fully evolved version. I've already evolved 3, and am debating doing a 4th in the next 20 minutes. If I wait longer, the Meteor attack won't be given to him, but I like to keep a substantial number of candies available for future use if need-be. . . *Related to this point, I live down the street from a public park, and different, random Pokemon will spawn there at high rates for about a week at a time. Previous Pokemon that did this included Charmander, Squirtle, Nosepass (this happened last week), the long-neck turtle dude that doesn't evolve, and Ponyta, to name a few. Anyone else have this happen? I guess this is "nesting."
