Hi, Jason. Hope you're having a nice summer. 8-)


So all the other threads and directories areas are stored away? Kind of sucks because it's fun to look back.

It would be nice to have a topic directory for 1) Toys, 2) Pop Culture, 3) It Matters! (aka, It Doesn't!), 4) Trade, and 5) Misc, or a whatever saloon.

Not a big deal.

Just an :idea:

Uh-oh Predaking!
What'd y'all think of the DC Essentials? I'm curious but gunshot about DCC starting and stopping another line.

They're all archived Dorm. I can bring em back anytime.

I thought it would be good to have just the one thread to try and get some discussion going. We'll see how it goes. Seems to be working so far!

I did leave it matters as separate so we could keep those specialized discussions there.

I can't figure out what's going on with D.C. I've kinda written them off. I don't like any of the stuff from Mattel, and dcdirect can't get it together. Too many artist specific figures that leave incomplete teams. DC has lost me.

I was always a Marvel guy, myself, but I admit I did get pulled in by DCUC. I think if DC can get another line together that's available, affordable, and consistent, they could make a comeback, but they seem to think the "cancel and make a new issue #1" philosophy should also apply to toy lines.

I'm intrigued by the mention of Dinobots, myself, but I'm a little leery of them being Deluxes. I feel like they should be Voyagers or so. In my mind, they're always kind of big beefy dudes, with the possible exception of Swoop.

Looks like there'll be a Voyager Grimlock and Deluxes for the rest, if those slides can be trusted.

In other news, I don't even have a normal MP-10, but I find this one just goofy enough to be tempting:

Luckily, I don't live in Japan, so I'll never have the chance (outside of scalped ones for twice the price).

PS According to the TFW interview, Darkwing and Dreadwind can combine, after all. Beyond that, it's about as content-free as possible, but at least there's one neat note. http://news.tfw2005.com/2017/07/25/tfw2 ... 017-345259

So I'm in Phoenix for the week for work... the comic shops and toy aisles seem to be as desolate as the rest of the state.

And that "it's a dry heat"... 104 is still 104! You don't start swating immediately, you just slowly bake.

I hate it when it's so hot that I swat.

What do you mean "the rest of the state?" Are you in Phoenix, NC? And it's really hot there?

You'd think Jean Grey figures would be easy to find there.
