...and so will team FQP! Think this is the 11th straight TB in a row for me. Only missed the first one or two I think.

Got some new reading material off Ebay to sink some teeth into this month.

I do love how Larsen and co. utilised the silver age lenses of Big Bang to give the original Mighty Man more material. I'm still hoping for a full on Big Bang Comics Omnibus treatment one day...

I worry that the good work of Last Jedi might get undone here... which will mean I'll turn into the whining fanboy that the whining fanboys became over Last Jedi.... damn this is all going to get a bit tricky isn't it!
My thoughts exactly.

I'm not a Star Wars guy. I actually have quiet a bit of disdain for it. But I loved TLJ and simply hope the work that movie set up isn't made to go to waste here.

I can't believe someone who used to be in the Hitler Youth has turned out to have bad opinions.  I hope this doesn't tarnish the reputation of other Nazis.

I don't think they have missed the point at all.

I assure you that there is a non-trivial chunk of internet comic fans that has very much missed the point of Dredd, at least.

The 20th July 2012 Colorado shooting was nearly 7 years ago. And yet as far as the collective Internets abilities to recall, it never happened. There really are nutters out there utilising their fictional idols to justify their warped world views.

Getting some real urban violence vibes from this akin to Death Wish, which certainly is an interesting and fresh take on the backstory. I'll bite.

The smallest fully grown Cybertronians, like Nickel are about 3-4ft tall, so about the size of Ro-Jaws. The largest are the colossal city sized Titans, like Metroplex and Trypticon, which are far far larger than anything in the Millsverse. Optimus sit's somewhere between the 30-50ft tall mark, so towers over most ABC warriors. Even the smaller than average Autobots/Decepticons like Tailgate or Rumble would still be about the size of Hammerstein.

I doubt i’ll bother with the Masterpiece line, too big, too expensive, too much like a collectors piece than just some fun to liven up the work space in my flat. The Generations line are more in my ball park, cheaper but still impressive little toys for what they are and appealing to a certain bit of nostalgic jpy. God knows the world meeds that right now.

Through the power of thread necromancy I convey this message.

I've caught the Transformers figures bug. I picked up a few from In Demand Toys at MCM Bham a few weeks back for a bargain and found the engineering to be much improved from the chunky spring loaded blocks of the early 2000's. Cindersaur, Triggerhappy and Hun-Gurrr are great figures and it's convinced me to dip my toe a bit more into the recent lines.

This wont become a problem, i'm sure....

I DO love Age of Reptiles so this is being added to my wishlist.

Welp, dipped my toe back into the extended Transformers mythology with VICTORY. It's silly, it's daft, it's well animated. It can only be an anime from the far off year of 1990.

I only managed 45 mins of this. Dependability of the subject and accusers not withstanding it just wasn't how I would like to have spent 90 mins of my life.

Currently working my way through Brave Police J Decker, the 1994 entry in Takaras Brave series of super mecha shows. Delightfully entertaining and blissfully self aware without coming at the expense of characters or genre tropes, J Decker has rightly earned is resurgence in popularity.

anyone want to talk about comics?

Morecambe and Wise were good.
Some say Peter Cushings ghost still haunts BBC and ITV production houses across the country, looking to be repaid completely.
