I could see buying up an army of these things depending on the price.  They look incredible.

Yeah, but the real question is whether or not he and Lucille will sleep in the same bed.  I'm almost positive she's not one of his wives. 

I watched the last episode again last night while getting some work done - I love the scene with Fat Joe returning his bat.  "Did you treat her like a lady?"

"Godspeed, John Glenn.”   :'(

My wife and I were just talking about John Glenn and what an amazing ass kicker he was, and how people of successive generations (ours) can even begin to match up to a stud like him and some of his peers.

  • Fighter pilot in WWII and Korea
  • Test pilot
  • First American to orbit the earth
  • Took a ride on a Space Shuttle and spent nine days in space at age 77
  • Served as a Senator for 25 years

Any one of those is a big deal for anyone's legacy.  He did all five without breaking a sweat.

Who, under 50, would you even begin to compare to the likes of John Glenn?  You could probably pick a few business people like Elon Musk that have done some pretty cool things, but its hard to think of anyone even remotely in his league.

I keep hearing him described as the last, inarguable American hero.  I'm having a hard time coming up with an argument against the idea.

Trump maybe?

Wait, why is there another new Spiderman reboot / recast / reimagining?  What was wrong with the last kid?

Disney/Marvel wanted Spiderman in their films, but Sony owns the rights to him.  They worked out an agreement where they can both use Spiderman and decided it was in everyone's best interests to use the same actor, hence another reboot.  Previous Spidey was an older version and Stark bringing in a teen Spidey was a better fit for the story Marvel wanted to tell.  Tom Holland (age 20) plays Spidey in Captain America Civil War (Marvel Studios) and in Spiderman Homecoming (Sony Pictures).  Andrew Garfield (previous Spidey) is 33.

It's a simple, but brilliant deal in my opinion.  Disney didn't have to pay a dime for him - each studio just shares the rights and keeps 100% of the profits from the films they release.  It's a win-win for everyone - Marvel gets to bring him into their Avengers universe and Sony gets to feed off Marvel's other successful franchises to help make their Spidey movie a bigger success. 

The only odd part is RDJ as Iron Man in a Sony film - I knew he was in it, but figured it was a cameo.  Sure looks like a much bigger role.  I'm a little surprised that Sony gets to use IM, but apparently Marvel negotiated creative control of the film, so it's a lot more like a Marvel Studios movie released under the Sony name.  I wish Marvel and Fox had been able to work out something similar for the Quicksilver character instead of each going their own way.

The BioShock games probably won't ever be made BC. They were announced late last year, but apparently 2K was already in the middle of porting them to the current consoles, and why would you give people the old games for free when you can sell them new "remastered" versions instead? So the Xbox 360 versions are kind of stuck in BC limbo.

Anyway, be sure to check out BioShock: The Collection for Xbox One, available at a retailer near you, for $49.99.

They shouldn't list them as in progress then on that voting page...

As for the 3-pack, I saw it at Best Buy yesterday at lunch... it was only $29.99

If it hit $20 I'd probably pick it up.

Some people are saying too much Robert Downey Junior. Funny, some were people worried RDJ would quit the Marvel movie universe, not he's in it too much. YES, IT'S THE SAME PEOPLE. I HAVE FILES.  :P

Parker's portly pal drops the Lego Death Star...is that a knock a Disney. WE NEED TO ANALYZE EVERY FRAME.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Hasbro Black Series Market Research Survey
« Last post by P-Siddy on December 9, 2016, 10:06 AM »
They asked me about 3.75" SA for $15... I said no.  In the comments, I added a bunch of insight as in bringing back a moderately-articulated line with about 9 POA.  Asked about Han in Carbonite general release, told them I they should offer a Padme other than the Geonosis outfit version.  They can take my opinions how they want.  Just figured if the space was there...
