I don't know what you are talking about. Never heard of that movie before. If it had existed at one point, it must have been wiped from the collective consciousness of humans all around the globe. Were you wearing a tinfoil hat on that day?

If I had realized that I'd get a chair with Pac, I would've picked the other Lucha Libre Extreme Accesories pack (the one with the table and light tube), but I ordered this a while ago and it will shop soon.

Well, I'd probably be slapping my head if you said you could have gotten that or Optimus and chose Rod. I'd still like to get a good G1 cartoon-accurate Soundwave. He doesn't have to transform as long as he looks good as the robot.

Well, technically, I did just get another Masterpiece Prime, although this one is a little different. He comes from the Shattered Glass universe and is evil unlike Megatron who leads the brave Decepticons. (Think mirror universe from Trek). So we both win. I got a Prime and a kid who will be Prime .


On the Soundwave figure, you literally have tons of options. You could get a KO Masterpiece SW for roughly $100, and the KOs are pretty decent. I have a few. If you really don't care about transformation, Hasbro just released a new line called Transformers RED. All the classic figures with tons of articulation, but they don't transform. We can talk about this more via messaging.

After nearly a year on pre-order (from the Power Con website), my Masters of the Universe Toy Guide (by Pixel Dan, whom I follow on Youtube/Patreon) and the supplement to Dark Horse's Encyclopedia should arrive today.

I don't know that myself. Haven't followed anything modern but the live-action stuff (half of which I would rather not).

Oh, of course, nostalgia is a big part of any of those fandoms. There are some children's entertainment I've become fans of that were before my time (like Speed Racer and Astro Boy), but not a whole lot and very little from after my time.

I can't get into MMPR, for instance. It seems like I would since I love Godzilla, Gamera, and Ultraman, but the stuff I've tried I haven't liked at all. Maybe I'd tolerate the Sentai source material better because a lot of what I can't stand seems to be the American, high-school-based parts.

The way i understand it haim saban bought the footage from Japan and shot the school parts in the usa. Even as a kid i saw how certain were different like itll be daylight than dark in seconds. Kinda funny really. My cousin was obsessed with godzilla. I think i saw maybe 2 films and like the old kung fu films the voices dont match the lips. I like the current godzilla

Oops, my bad. I didn't see your question yesterday.


The shattered glass universe is basically another dimension where everything and everyone is opposite of who they are in the main universe. If you ever saw the original Star Trek series, there may have been 1 or 2 episodes that had the same format. Star Trek called it the mirror verse. I remember in later Star Trek shows like DS9 and especially Voyager, certain episodes would have the mirror verse as a setting. Like Major Kira was an evil warlord in the mirror verse.



Getting back to Transformers, it started as a comic thing in the last 10 years. It wasn't part of G1, but it used those characters. The very first story had main universe Cliffjumper accidently get thrown into the SG universe and it just kinda took off from there.



Here is a bit more detailed explanation:

Dammit, if you click on that link, type in the last ")" in the url. For some reason, this forum doesn't like it.

Today, I went with my folks to a street fair (essentially a twice-a-year flea market spread across downtown) in Gettysburg, PA. Got four LPs and six 45s (3 Beatles and 3 solo Beatles). The Star Wars isn't the soundtrack, but a kind of dramatic synopsis (with film audio) presumably mostly for people who somehow missed the first movie before ESB or at least wanted a refresher.

I was surprised at a Lancaster, PA antique mall to find a booth with a shelf dedicated to Green Lantern stuff. Got a couple DC Direct figures I didn't have (and a couple Pez and a movie from others):

Also in that package will be NECA's 3 Defenders of the Earth figures. First up:



[Phantom isn't a particular favorite, but I like the design and pre-ordering all three was only a bit more than just getting the Flash Gordon and Ming I really wanted.]

Actually.....I think I'm pretty much the only one here who Loves Doom, and if Tazer were here, he would certainly back that up.


Doom is an acquired taste; i could write a 16 page essay on why I love the character even more than any Transformer character to date, and over the course of my time here, you probably could compile 16 pages worth of answers for that very question. There's something very attractive to me about a boy who came from nothing that worked himself up to something that has the gall to take on Gods and he truly believes he can save the world under his rule. Villainous aspects aside, I admire that.
