It's often the case with successful TV shows that they kind of inadvertently live on past their prime. It's best to leave the audience wanting more. - Author: Vince Gilligan
With The Simpsons, we've seen a show go past the sell by date, the expiration date, and the Good Lord, I had forgotten this thing was in the fridge since, 1989!? I'm surprised it hasn't achieved sentience and tried to eat me! date.
We need 1950s Disney to come and put The Simpsons out of its misery... but 2020s Disney will try to reach the 1000 episode milestone or 40 seasons, whichever comes later.

And he looks glorious. It seems that Hasbro gave up on Fortnite-ifying the figures and just making Marvel Legends sized Normal GI Joe figures. Best part is that Shipwreck is coming in all his Village People Reject Glory!! No Badass Navy SEAL Shipwreck here...
But with the trend of "green packaging" buyong online from a trusted retailer is the only solution.

Todd McFarlane, Creator of Spawn, and big boss of McFarlane Toys can make Injustice toys, since we've seen some in his DC Multiverse line. He can also do TMNT toys based on the Seth Rogen movie... meaning that he has contact with the Nickelodeon folks. So, what if, Todd got on the phone with the Nickelodeon people and told them about Injustice 2 and how he makes the toys for the characters in the game and woth the Turtles being in the game, if they can give him the OK to make the Turtles from the game.
I would just be happy with the standard outfit for all 4. It would also be beneficial for McFarlane since all 4 turtles look exactly the same save their weapons. This makes it a godsend for parts reuse.
I WAS going to save it for the Advent Calendar, but there are other things that I could use on the possibly last BIG Time 24 day Advent Calendar from Nefty's House of Rants. I'm going through the backlog of toys to clear them ASAP. Like I'm waiting for Dino Thunder Black to review all 5 DT Rangers and make a Sentai themed week or something. But let's talk gunz... part deux.
Like I said in part 1, I'm not a gun aficionado, so I have no idea what most of these guns are. I know a few of them but it's like basic video game/movie knowledge. Remember that that most of my gun knowledge comes from Metal Gear because I don't play Call of Doody or other FPS games.
|One of those rifles seems familiars|
It appears Spawn might be carrying a M-Series looking rifle. The other is a FAMAS looking rifle. 100% sure I am not, but like I said before, I am not a gun aficionado.
|One of these guns reminds me of Solidus... FN90, I think.|
The other looks like reuse but it's a brand new sculpt. It's larger and has a small stock which wasn't in the previous pack. This one suits Spawn.
|Forgot to crop this pic with the smallest revolvers.|
|Now we know that Lex Luthor has a 2 inch pianist.|
|Wait that's a Walther P38...|
Why do I know this gun?
|Nefty we slipping... another uncropped pic?|
|A Sniper Rifle?|
|A machine gun... wait, is this the FAMAS?|
|I wonder if it has infinite ammo.|
|Holy crap, Todd DIDN'T REUSE the John Stewart construct!!|
I still can't believe that McFarland didn't reuse the Green Lantern construct for this pack. I mean that minigun was close to perfection. But this one is really good too! It would have been understandable if we had gotten that gun in gunmetal gray but, decided that he wasn't going to reuse so we got a brand new minigun.
|Nefty-kun VO: When I was talking about popping, Harley, I was talking about black cherries...|
Harley: Mr. N, You're so silly! I popped that in college!!
Nefty-kun VO: I wasn't talking about your anal virginity either. Harley, I was talking about popping the pits out of these black cherries to make weaponized black cherry pies for The Joker... He hasn't been the same since The Bat Lost his voice.
Harley: It's almost as if he's dying from a broken Heart!
Troy Baker VO: Will you two shut up! Or I'll...
Harley: Sorry, Mistah J!
Nefty-kun VO: I got a golf club, Joel and I was invited to the WLF Abby pro-am tour! In the NEFTYVERSE, YOU ARE MY BITCH, JOKER!!
It's a ridiculously sized revolver with a cork in the front. It's obvious that this is meant for a comic book styled or video game styled Harley Quinn. I wonder if we'll be getting Injustice 2 versions of her soon? I know I heard rumors that an Injustice 2 Supergirl is coming.
|Mattel Alfred has a blunderbuss;|
Your argument is invalid.

As much as I enjoy my Karate Telenovela, it's excellent that Cobra Kai will be ending this season. It's better to end up in a high note and not be a rotten zombie begging for death like say The Simpsons. My main gas is that the final showdown will be between Johnny Lawrence, Daniel LaRusso, and John Kreese. I'm not too sure and how the kids storyline will go because it kind of felt completed at the end of season 5. Let's be honest here: Just like Boruto and Girl Meets World, we're not here for the kids. We're here for the Adults. Since I mentioned Girl Meets World I must point out that Johnny Lawrence's kid was in Girl Meets World as well. Which means he's been in two shows that get killed earlier than they should've. Maybe season 6 will give us the Hillary Swank reference we may not want or need, but kind of hope for since she was part of the "Mr Miyagiverse".Not gonna lie, I have the biggest nerd boner right now! Well it's no secret that I am a sucker for the Karate Kid, so of course I'm excited about the final season of Cobra Kai.

Cloacal Surfer Michelangelo is here. I got him for less than retail at Entertainment Earth. He's the Michelangelo variant from the disguised turtles wave. The other figures from that wave are Leonardo the sewer samurai, Raphael this space case and lastly Donatello the undercover turtle. Out of the four we've gotten two of them, Raphael will be coming soon. For some reason Donatello hasn't been shown and I'm waiting for that figure. We have two Donatello variant figures coming but none of them is the undercover turtle. Enough about that let's talk Michelangelo.
With Michelangelo being there more fun-loving Turtle of the group it would make sense to have him being in a sporty fun activity. That's how we got sewer surfing Michelangelo.

Netherrealm Studios are known for Mortal Kombat and Injustice. They're no Capcom or SNK, but they can pull off decent fighters. An Injustice type game would be more suited for MOTU than a Mortal Kombat styled game. So, in Injustice 2, the TMNT are 1 character. You can use all 4 turtles, but it depends on the Weapon you equip them with. Katana = Leonardo, Bo = Donatello, Sai = Raphael, and Nunchaku = Michelangelo. Special moves and some basics change between each turtle... Let's take that idea and apply it to MOTU.

Raphael has had a couple of "secret identities" throughout the multiverse. I could point out the time he pretended to be Shredder.
Nope! Bad Nefty! That's a rant for another day! We're here today to discuss the Nightwatcher, or how Raphael pretends to be a Batman knock-off whose shape has a familiar profile.Somebody once told me...

I thought that after he quit/got fired from Mattel (heard 2 different versions of the story) that I wouldn't have to hear much from Scott Toyguru Neitlich. Well, apparently he's been starving for attention by attacking Super7, announcing the end of MOTU origins and Masterverse since the get-go. While, yeah, I'm not a fan of both lines, I've sampled some fogures and decided they're not for me. Hell, I've mellowed out on my stance on them.

At the Golden Globes, Murphy made a speech that ended in mocking Will Smith and the infamous slap that made him look like a total assclown.
“Enough of the streaming already. I’m tired of sitting on my ass.”

Trying to get them while they're young and all that. Normally this wouldn't be an issue for me, seeing I'm not Barbie's target audience. Whar bugs Me is that THEY'RE MAKING THESE DOLLS ON A DIFFERENT SCALE THAN NORMAL BARBIE DOLLS!! If the kids "outgrow" their My First Barbie dolls and move towards standard Barbie dolls, they can't share clothes... unlike duplo and LEGO which are compatible with each other. The Standard Barbies are 11.5" while the new My First Barbie is 13.5". That's like putting Figma Phoenix Wright next to NECA Biff Tannen.
McKnight said the doll’s hands feature a distinctive design change. “The hand is closed, so the thumb is not detached. We did this to make it easier for little hands to dress and undress the doll,” she said.
Barbie already has a ton of issues with parents claiming she's a bad role model for girls. Now I can almost see how some groups will twist this into saying that Barbie promotes a libertine lifestyle to kids because Mattel made the dolls easier to undress or some bullshit like that.
I see some mentions about using velcro instead of buttons, variations in skin tones, but I don't see anything about F-A-T Barbies. I wonder if they sold well... also there's no mention of Ken either.

Recently, the Snydertards have released a new campaign called Sell the Snyderverse to Netflix. The reason is that they dislike the fact that James Gunn is the DC equivalent of Kevin Feige, a role they hoped it was given to Zack Snyder. They even have the delusions that Snyder's wife, Deborah Snyder has been in meetings with WB in order to get the Snyderverse to be produced outside of WB and DC.
|This chart is flawed. It only looks at box office numbers not taking outside elements that influenced latter movies. Not to mention that The Suicide Squad was a 2021 film. So even the chart may be wrong.|
|Without Aquaman, you can see how "the Snyderverse" was crashing down.|
