Predictions, eh?

Tarn revealed, finally, to be Dominus Ambus.

Getaway *doesn't*

Pharma as new DJD member.

Nickel dies.

Star Saber returns.

Drift, too. And Ratchet.

Re: MTMTE #49

What the hell happened to Getaway?

I don't think Sunder did that. Cyclonus? Is the DJD already on board?

MTMTE #49

Not, in my opinion, the best of the series.

But, in two weeks, issue #50 finally hits. And then we get to witness, firsthand, the Dying of the Light.

Re: I like comics, How 'bout you?

The Vader comic is, on a monthly basis, the Darth Vader stories I've always wanted to read. Been trade-waiting on Vader Down, though. Anybody else feel like Secret Wars could have been done as six issue mini? Or, hell, even as a 48/64 page 1-shot? Yes, and just about every other event crossover sin...

Re: A Game of Books Not Done

He's got an "out" now. If the fan reaction to season 6 is good, he can say that it was based on his notes for the upcoming book (which can then use the same story with some additions/tweaks). If fan reaction is terrible, he can drop the blame on the studio and do something totally different with the...

I keep giving it sideways glances because I still can't believe it's a real thing. It's probably the single best TF figure I've ever owned. It's simply perf...

Re: Star Wars: The Not The Prequels Awakens (Spoilers)

So George Lucas's complaints about TFA have to be a red herring. He was bitching that it was supposed to be "a family soap opera" and that Disney didn't go with that? How was that not a family soap opera? I was kind of thinking the same thing. Almost felt like his "It's not a family soap opera thin...

Loved all the new characters. Just, ALL of them. Not only that, I REALLY loved how they interacted with each other (and with the OT cast). Po/Finn was magic. Finn/Rey was great. Rey/Han was terrific/ Han/Finn was awesome. Finn/Chewy was glorious. BB-8 was so much better than I had any expectation of...

Couldn't deal with the opening day crowds and didn't plan to see the movie at all until next week sometime.

It's been hit or miss for me. But when it's hit, it's hit HARD. The misses have been largely "just okay", imo. But, WOW, Peter Capaldi is just a joy to watch as the Doctor. He's just so, so, so GOOD.

Re: MTMTE #45

MTMTE has been pretty good about not axing characters, popular or otherwise. So I have hope that all of the Scavengers will pull through. It's refreshing that way. The writer ("James" feels too familiar, "Mr. Roberts", too formal, "Roberts", impolite, and "James Roberts" too cold.) has done a fantas...

I'd be interested in knowing what the status is of the statue of a certain one-eyed purple people-eater. Or Bumblebee's.
