    "In the News" thread

    How is this real? It's hysterical and sad all at the same time. Baltimore HS student fails all but 3 classes over 4 years, ranks near top half of class | Fox News Yet the mom keeps blaming the school. Sure, there is plenty of blame to go around, and the school clearly should share in it...

    New 1:18 scale anime style action figure

    Interesting. I didn't realize there were so many 1:18 female figures being sold out there. I have some marauder parts for female customs I haven't built, and I've got 3-4 planet green valley females, but I've been out of touch with 1/18th stuff since Joe went away and everything became $30...

    Inside the Toy Biz

    I think your assessment of his age is correct. He clearly was not alive in the 80s and would not know that they were the hottest selling toy of the decade, likely by a large margin. TF, He-Man, SW, and TMNT were all big, but none of them were on Joe's level at the time. Although it's odd that...

    GIJoe - Lady Jaye Series coming to Amazon

    Adrianne Palicki is certainly smokin' hot... all the way back to her Friday Night Lights days, but I'm not sure she really fit my mental image of Lady Jaye. She's really more of a Cover Girl if we're applying ARAH standards. I wouldn't be sad if they brought her back, but I can also imagine...

    Takara Transformers

    Agreed. Is Darth Vader a robot? Why does Chewbacca turn into a starship? The SW crossovers were all very stupid, IMO. They serve no play purpose or fit into any TF or SW narrative. WTF, Mattel??? This is an abortion.

    Takara Transformers

    This strikes me as the quintessential example of "just because you can, doesn't mean you should." Who is this for exactly? Transformers Collaborative: X-Men Mash-Up – The Ultimate X-Spanse Figure In-Hand Look (marvelousnews.com)

    I know your country doesn't have indoor plumbing yet, but a word of advice: pooping in your shoes is not the best way to handle waste. Unless that's one of your fetishes, in which case, carry on. EDIT: Come on Curly Dan, he said it's over.... pull the trigger...

    Official Figure Pic One-Shot Thread

    Neat. The guy clearly has a lot of imagination. His construction skills seem to be rudimentary, as if the only tool he owns is a hacksaw, but he tried hard. However, I must admit that I couldn't stop cringing throughout the video. The mix of ARAH and modern Joes, the weird mish-mash of parts...

    You're clearly new to the internet and the concept of communication. We'll continue laughing at you until it stops being funny.

    Me write nonsense post and act like philosopher. Cuz gibberish on toy board somehow helps misguided cause. Post is perfect if want to amuse with gramitically comedy. If only exists ignore button people could avoid weirdos. Wait... success!

    Dead celebrities |OT| Knock knock knocking on heaven's door

    I'm not going to lie, if you had asked me last week, I would have been fairly certain that Bob Dole was no longer with us already. I was living in NC 20 years ago when Elizabeth was running for senate after he retired, and he was old as dirt then.

    [1:18 diorama] battle in the jungle (Guadalcanal,1942)

    Very cool. Both my grandfathers were in the Navy. One didn't see much action, as he was young and joined up about 6mo before the end of the war. The other was in the south pacific on a warship. He was in the engine room when the ship was torpedoed. Their instructions were to always wear...

    If you have to spell out your URL to avoid spam filters, that's generally a bad sign. But also, if you're trying to win hearts and minds, consider learning English... as opposed to whatever chinglish nonsense that was.

    What's everybody up to?

    Commercials make up roughly 1/3 of the broadcast of an NFL game. I do not need to pee, check fantasy, or get snacks for 20min per hour. Only someone with an eating disorder and a bladder problem needs that much time off.

    What's everybody up to?

    Agreed. If I ever catch up to live, I flip over to something on the DVR or media server. The superbowl is the only time I ever want to watch a commercial on purpose.
