Hello? Is anybody here?

Anyway, I spotted the vintage wave of ML at my local Wal Mart today. I really like the Cap and may cave on him. Nice classic look. It's not apparent to me whether his shield can come off that flying effect hand, though. Then again, it's not like it'd be the only Cap shield I own.

In other news, I was really excited for the new Rodimus Prime and Optimus Prime coming from Hasbro, but these pictures of Optimus in truck mode are kinda dire:

Rodimus is looking pretty clunky in robot mode, too. Maybe it's just bad stock photo transformation, though.

Good to know about the shield.

I may wind up getting him.

Finished Punisher. Violent, but has surprising heart. Justice League was a lot of fun. Ready to see it again.

I didn't even know punisher was out! Guess I know what I'll watch after I catch up on curse of oak island.

Btw, I've found ml at 5 below. Got capt Britain for $5!

I watched the first couple of episodes of Punisher. I'm not sure how I feel about it, but it's at least interesting enough to keep me coming back, which is more than most of the Netflix Marvel stuff has done.

In unrelated news, Takara's working on those Street Fighter/Transformers crossover figures that nobody asked for:

If those were at normal retail for normal retail prices, I could see picking up one or two for novelty, but it looks like they're going to be online Japanese exclusives, and therefore really pricey.

And in other TF news, apparently all the "Power of the Primes" Voyagers will be combiner torsos.

I don't know that I need more combiners, but there you go.

This trailer is such garbage.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZfuNTqbHE8

I mean, the movie may be good, but I feel like I've already seen this exact trailer a thousand times, from the poignant, slow music at the beginning, to the thudding bass in time with action scenes and all the dramatic pronouncements, even to the "after credits" zinger. This is some played out advertising.

Doesn't help that I'm just burned out on super heroes, I'm sure, but I watch this ad and think "eh, maybe Redbox".
