Hopefully, Disney will bring in Tiaka Waititi from Thor Ragnarok.  I liked GotG2, but it was pretty formulaic and they just amped up what was good about the first one.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 2018 SDCC
« Last post by Jesse James on Today at 02:05 AM »
At least the answer was honest haha.  I'm glad TVC Han is that Han though, really.  One of my most anticipated figures in that line coming up.  I just wish we were getting ALL the other mains in that line as well.

I'd like to take a moment again, as always, to thank Darth_Anton (Or "Ant" as I've come to call him!) for helping us again with coverage of the show.  SDCC is a show too complex, far, and probably too overwhelming for someone like me to attend.  It's just a show I know I won't ever be able to attend, and every year we're helped out tremendously by Anthony, who is there on his dime, his time, and with his family to boot.  We've been very lucky to have someone willing to act on our behalf out there for us, and always do it professionally and with real enthusiasm to boot.  I'd be drained I think, doing a fraction of what he does while he's there, haha.

The show is made increasingly difficult to go to every year as well, so that's another thing to remember.  It really is a lot of hoops to jump through just to get into it these days it seems.  Not to mention tracking down exclusives and stuff!  Ant's always offering to do any/everything he can.  I'm really happy to have gotten to know him and his family a little better through covering the shows and being in contact like we are.  I live vicariously through him, haha.

He's there live-texting to me information from Hasbro, sending pictures, details...  He really is doing a lot, so thanks again to him (and his family) for giving up their time and helping us as much as they do.  He was on his way home last I spoke to him and was still going to be uploading more pictures for me later too.  Just fantastic work, as always from him. Thanks man!

Is he TBA because he's a repack they're waiting to see they need, or is he TBA because he's a repack they didn't want pitchforks over at the show? 

Or is he new?  Hmmmmm....

at least a few nickels of the sale went back to JD.

Good news - Amazon or EE - either way more than a few nickels make their way back here to help us keep the lights on! ;)  It's much appreciated.

That's great but if you haven't ordered one yet and don't want to wait until August this is an option

EE got the sale from me.  Not only was there no tax which made it less than Amazon,  but at least a few nickels of the sale went back to JD.

The tweets were not defensible.  But James Gunn's past work for Troma would have raised some concern, and that was well before he got the gig to direct GotG.  It bears repeating: these were TWEETS.  Were they in poor taste?  That's not in question.  For his part, Gunn has owned up to that social media content as him attempting to be very deliberately shocking at the time, and that he's a different person now.  But let's also look at the broader context.

There are some in Hollywood who have become very vocally critical of the current administration.  James Gunn is among those people.  He has regularly engaged much of the Trump faithful and taken them to task. 

Enter alt-right troll Mike Cernovich.  He was one of the central figures in dredging up old social media content of James Gunn and pushed for him to be fired.  And it bears examining that Cernovich was one of the proponents of the bogus pizza-gate conspiracy theory.  There is a litany of Cernovich's documented despicable rhetoric and bad behavior.  ACTUAL rape allegations, for one.  Propogating a conspiracy that led to a gunman shooting up a pizza place in Washington.  And what consequences has he suffered for that?  And are we taking his motives into context?  Word is that he is now targeting another entertainment figure who has been openly critical of Trump:  Michael Ian Black.

Some of the Guardians cast has come to Gunn's defense.  Dave Bautista, for one, has stated that he is not okay with James Gunn being fired.  They regard him very well personally and judge him for who he is on the set and in their personal interactions with him. 

There's more to this that just some tasteless tweets.

This may not be news, but the last I had checked before today Amazon didn't have tank in stock, but they do now for retail and arrival to you on Tuesday (with Prime of course)
