StarCom

If you’ve never heard of it, StarCom was a cartoon that aired in the fall of 1987. There was a toyline of course. Although I hear the toyline was considered a flop in the USA compared to sales in Europe and Asia. I had a few of the spaceships myself though my mom did not save them. I’ve seen them on eBay before and they are not cheap.

I watched the first episode and it wasn’t bad. It certainly wasn’t as cheesy as some of the other 80s cartoons I’ve recently gone back to watch. The plot revolves around the U.S. Space Force, StarCom and their battle with the Shadow Force.

The toys were pretty sweet as well. The figures had magnets in their feet that allowed them to stick to the aircraft. Not only that but the magnets enabled the vehicles to “come alive” such as activated a missile launcher or raising an elevator.

As I understand it, only the first 3 episodes were released on DVD and the plans for future DVD releases were scrapped. It would seem that someone has uploaded all 13 episodes on Youtube (divided into 39 parts) and they can be viewed there.

Here’s links to the 3 parts of Episode 1:

Starcom Space Force Episode 1 Part 1
Starcom Space Force Episode 1 Part 2
Starcom Space Force Episode 1 Part 3

You should be able to find the rest on your own just searching Youtube for “Starcom Space Force Episode X part Y” where you change the X and Y to whatever episode and part you are looking for. For those that do recall the cartoon series and want to relive the good ol’ days, there’s other big kids selling their old collections here:

A Taste of Things to Come in 2019 — From Microsoft

There’s some neat things there. I hope the Google translator really works that well…the integration with Facebook so far is good but could be better.

You would think with screens apparently being everywhere that all of those corporate types would be working out of a home office. I would be ecstatic if the world could really look like that in 7 years but I’m thinking that’s more like 22 years away.

GU Comics and a 72-hour Wait For Diablo 3?

I’ve been reading the comics at gucomics.com for over a decade though not on a regular basis. I just checked out the site for the first time in over a year and found an amusing comic regarding Diablo 3.

Diablo III Comic

If the image above doesn’t load you can see the comic here.

Apparently after you complete the first act of the game, your account is stalled from progressing until your credit card can be validated. There was some confusion over whether or not this was a 72-hour hold. Apparently it’s actually only “up to 72 hours.” The “up to” part depending on how quickly your card can be verified.

NOTE: This doesn’t happen if you buy a boxed copy of the game. It seems to be limited just to digital game purchases.
