  1. SDCC 2013-Discussion Thread

    Oh dang. I think Sin City alone might get me back on the wagon.
  2. I'm baaaaaaaack!

    Good point. Hmmm.... There!
  3. I'm baaaaaaaack!

    Welcome, back, Iceman! Now haul your butt over to the post-Kang threads and pick a side already!
  4. The Avengers movie

    Just so we're clear, as of this moment the movie STILL isn't out in the States? So it appears I've just slept through the Kangpocalypse, but our local theaters are already getting jampacked with Avengers. All I can say for everyone else is, See y'all in a week or so!
  5. New Toys'R'Us Wave?

    Can't see the image now, but is it a bad sign that I was immediately suspicious of the name "BellaSwan"?
  6. Been Away..

    RAD! YOU'RE BACK! *glomps*
  7. Wibbly Buddies.

    There ya go, Bob.
  8. Minimate Archivalists?

    Guilty. I guess it depends on which property you're looking for, though. I haven't poked around the new-and-improved MMC much yet, but I remember some of the old promo art and prototype pics from their archives. Obviously the official AA gallery is also a good place to look, you'd be surprised what you'll find if you go back far enough. Can you put up a list of what kind of images you're looking for, Jeff? I'm sure loads of us here can help you out
  9. New York Toy Fair 2012

    Are my eyes deceiving me... ... or is that a BROOD minimate?!
  10. Watchmen Prequels

    If it's any consolation, I am vaguely intrigued by the idea of the prequels and I'm still not buying them. :tongue: The way I see it, the problem with the Watchmen prequels comes in two parts: the necessity of extending the story given the self-contained nature of the original miniseries (i.e. "Do we really need to read about the good ol' days of the Minutemen or Rorschach and Nite Owl II fighting crime?"), and the overall impact of the prequels to the legacy of Watchmen itself (its "sacred cow" status among longtime fans, if you will). On that first point, I'm still somewhat torn on the necessity of telling new Watchmen stories at all. Some parts, like the previous adventures of the Minutemen, might stand a chance if only due to their retraux appeal and how obscure some of their backstories still are. However, I believe it's redundant to tell new stories featuring Rorschach, Dr. Manhattan, etc. due to the generous backstory-related subtext already present in the books. This might be an arbitrary observation on my part though, and it certainly doesn't help reconcile how new stories are going to mesh with Moore's original "deconstructing comics" conceit. As for the second point, I'm probably not the best person to sound off on Watchmen's "sacred legacy" seeing as I've only recently been converted to the series. I may revisit the old Watchmen movie discussion thread here to collect my thoughts on it, but right now I feel like this is something of a Canon Defilement versus Death of the Author kind of debate.
  11. Shots From The Minibar

    Oh, heavens no. Where's Couch-Sitting Darkseid when you need him?
  12. Playmates TMNT Classics

    No joke, I really, really like these. I watched more than a few episodes of the old cartoon and these look spot-on indeed. Still not sure if I'll actually get them (I don't collect this scale) but DAMN, those are some beautiful prototypes.
  13. TV Shows We Would Like Minimates For

    Speaking of TV shows, this picture might be able to give us some ideas...
  14. TV Shows We Would Like Minimates For

    I agree that HIMYM mates would look pretty boring, however I still think Big Bang Theory has some potential if only due to the recognizability factor. They may all be in t-shirts and jeans, but if you've seen the show then you'd know how weird and brightly-colored their outfits actually look at a distance. I'm still drawing a blank at accessories, though. Laptops, maybe? Paintball guns? Comic books? (A minimate-sized Roommate Agreement would be hysterical.) Going back on topic, I wouldn't mind Gilligan's Island or Mr Bean mates. Heck, let's go crazy with the comedy minimates: Three Stooges, Monty Python, Top Gear (that counts as comedy, right? :tongue: )
  15. I think we need to start the army builders again?

    I probably said it before but I'll say it again: this is probably one of the few times I actually don't mind battle-damagedravaged variants. :biggrin:
