    Yeah, originally the 30th was in my head. Hmmm... nope, buncha places say 29th.

    For those who asked about an eBay link, here it is. It’s just the one item on the link, but check the others!

    These are *EBAY* prices, most of you should know that I try to price my stuff fairly and I’m always happy to deal with threadizens.

    This is part of a big clear out and refocus of my collecting habits, so please take a look :)

    Wasn't gonna watch the MOTU revelations after-show thing but glad I did as it carried the same core positivity as the show itself that elevated it above the usual luvvie circle jerk, and Smith's He-Man action figure commercial gave me a real chuckle, also amused to see Mewes cracking up Rollins in the outro.

    As good as both are they can only be showcased to their full potential with a competent supporting cast and an experienced, strong personality in charge of putting the shows together as opposed to Tony Khan and his EVP's.

    With the exception of MJF and FTR (Too many bloody initials :D ) there's nobody else with a name that can do the sort of in ring stuff that Punk and Bryan do and only MJF is anywhere near to being capable of hanging with Punk on the mic.

    Are wrestlers of that standard expected to dumb themselves down trying to make Omega look credible? Or go the "midlife crisis" route and try to be down with the kids like Jericho and Hardy? Or risk crippling themselves doing deathmatch garbage with Moxley because that's all he can do?

    If that's the case I hope they get as much money as they can.

    Aside from a short term increase to viewing figures none of the other names from recent and more distant past they've signed have elevated AEW because the braintrust only want them so they can brag about signing them away from WWE.

    They won't take any advice on board from veterans because they've already convinced themselves they can do no wrong.

    The way Tony Khan responded to a bit of criticism from Bubba Ray Dudley during a recent podcast interview demonstrated this beyond all doubt.

    Bubba was very polite and was only making a minor point about an area for improvement but Tony immediately lost his composure and went straight on the defensive :rolleyes: 

    @Imperator,
    Yeah it is the easy option but one that's better for my blood pressure :D 

    So,
    2 Terminator movies
    4 Star Wars movies and a TV series
    3 Die Hards
    No Doctor Who on TV after 1989
    No Batman movies after Joel Schumacher
    No live action Transformers movies

    I'm also strongly considering,
    No Manchester United after 2013 :D

    Earthrise Optimus Prime with Movie Mechtech trailer.

    Trailer hitch needs to sit where Primes feet/ankles are, so.... :oops: 
    Colour wise, I reckon the Netflix Op with the darker blue would look nice with this?
    I wonder if the Earthrise trailer repair bot/med bay bot thingy would fit into this trailer? :confused:

    Ok, the haul from mums loft continues... I originally went up to try and find my Motu 200x figures. Found them! Still awesome, but I've list he man's shield which annoys me immensely. Anyone got a spare?

    But yes, feast your eyes on the detritus of yesteryear. Lots of junk. lots of gold.

    Watching MOTU reminds me how much I hate continuations of series but with a different voice cast.

    I strongly recommend Batman Begins and The Dark Knight (ignore Rises, Nolan so obviously did that just for Warner Bros). They're some of the best superhero movies in the last 20 years because they're played straight, no winking at the camera.

    It's jarring as fuck at first but gets better. It's not even a true continuation anyway tbh. Though I couldn't tell you anyone involved did an especially good job on the VA.

    (I tried to watch the aftershow bit, hearing Smith gloat about things before watching Gellar contradict every recent statement on how she viewed the original... didn't last five minutes! Faker than the blue-skinned guy)

    Ah man, I've missed the terminator and aliens chat!

    Original aliens trilogy is all I need. Yep, I don't mind alien 3. Alien resurrection is a weird one, it's a fun, schlocky 90s sci Fi but a bad alien film.

    Predator 1 and 2 are the final word.

    Terminator 1 and 2 are also pretty definitive, but I have to say I don't mind salvation.

    Also, underrated lads. There's a lot if compromises given all they try to do, but gotta respect the ambition on this guy.
