Aw, you ruined it.

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:58 AM)

@robowang, I would have laughed at the joke if I knew who is Brian Kilby

beetleman, if you read this I'm not saying this as a fact, it's just a thought.

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 07:42 AM)

*Beetleman logs on and reads this*

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:40 AM)

I think beetleman might have a mental disability of some sorts. I'm not saying he definitely has but if he really does, you guys should be a little kinder to him. That would also explain why he says he is a 19 year old but his parents are overprotective. I'm not saying he definitely has but it's a possibility. Or he's just a 8 year old that says he is an adult.

@  Touch My Thighs : (24 May 2016 - 05:00 AM)

No need to ban him, just remove his ability to post new topics. Problem solved.

@  Msol : (24 May 2016 - 01:01 AM)

So what's the over/under for when beetleman is banned?

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2016 - 03:03 PM)

is anyone watching more web original shows and streamed TV shows than actual TV channels?

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2016 - 10:49 AM)

I wanted to charge my book, but couldn't cause my brother was charging his cigarette... the future is stupid.

@  Pennpenn : (22 May 2016 - 09:05 AM)

I hate that situation where you spend ages to find something, then realize it isn't charged, but you can't find the charging cable.

@  Locoman : (22 May 2016 - 09:00 AM)

Only cartoons I keep up with are RID2015, Rescue Bots, Adventure Time, Steven Universe, and Rick & Morty

@  Locoman : (22 May 2016 - 08:59 AM)

no, I don't really watch cartoons on tv no more

@  tffan01 : (22 May 2016 - 03:54 AM)

@Locoman, have you watched the cartoon I was talking about (Supernoobs) though?

@  Telly : (21 May 2016 - 10:34 PM)

"Chaos is bad for business, y'see." depends on the kind of business youre in...

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:34 PM)

Unless we're talking about the guy from Hunger Games, President Snow. He has feet.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:33 PM)

Snow doesn't have feet. It's just piles of frozen water.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:29 PM)

you wish, bud. let's see those bastards operate under six feet of snow

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:28 PM)

What I got out of that was that Canada really wants to have a plague of locusts unleashed upon them.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:25 PM)

y'see, under canadian law all broadcasting corporations operate under a mandate that at least 40% of the content they broadcast must be Canadian content. Naturally, this applies to kid's cartoon channels as well, which is a fairly niche market these days. So animators slap together very cheaply animated flash cartoons and air them in the daytime hours to fill the quota. Hence endless reruns of Johnny Test, Almost Naked Animals, etc.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (21 May 2016 - 09:25 PM)

Chaos is bad for business, y'see.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:17 PM)

You're a criminal mastermind. Shouldn't you want to wreak havoc?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (21 May 2016 - 09:16 PM)

You really want to be responsible for the creation of giant radioactive moose?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:13 PM)

Well, I didn't wanna have to do this, but it looks like we have to nuke Canada.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:12 PM)

Johnny Test isn't even the worst of it? Mother of God...

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:04 PM)

But in Canada, Johnny Test is just one of many terrible flash cartoons. It's not even the worst one.

@  ShadowMan024 : (21 May 2016 - 08:49 PM)

Pft. Cartoon Network aired Johnny Test TEN times a day for a loooooong time.

@  The Doctor Who : (21 May 2016 - 08:01 PM)

Mayhem Hangouts is Go! I repeat the loonies are converging on Google! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 07:52 PM)

My condolences. It's always sad to hear of the death of a loved one...or someone's sanity.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 07:44 PM)

Back in the days when I watched TFP on TV, they sometimes aired it six or seven times a day.

I was wondering if the toys would actually be on the shelves on June 2nd. My Target didn't put the Skywarp/Ultra Magnus 2-packs out anywhere near the street date. They were just sitting in the back room for close to 2 months. Wal-Mart hasn't been getting anything at all lately. The employees at Toys R Us buy up all the new stuff. I'm still wondering how it's all gonna play out in my area.

usually with something this big, the stores actually make an effort to have the stuff out when its suppoused to be...just look recently at Spiderman 3 stuff.

I was wondering if they were gonna go all out like they did for Star Wars 1-3 or take a more casual approach. Now we know TRU is going all out, I wonder what the other stores are planning to do. Target will probably have *some* of the stuff out in the morning but not all of it. K-Mart will probably have like 2 cases & that's it. And Wal-Mart? The Wal-Marts around here were kicking as during Cybertron but as soon as the Classics came out they just flat out started to suck. No Devastators, no Rumble or Ravage, they haven't been getting anything for the action figure aisle in months. It's gonna be really nice to see them forced to stock new Transformers for a change. Cuz they just wouldn't bother otherwise.

Thank you kindly, Dr. Fang. I would not be surprised if we have a few out-of-staters as well. We did have a family from New Jersey in 2004 and families from Alabama and Mississppi in 2005 & 2006.

That's good news! I expected just the Times Square TRU to do something like this, because lets face it, Transformers still are not as big as Star Wars. Glad to see I am wrong.

Junior, is it just your TRU that is doing this, or is it a nation wide thing?

The graphic and the event are my ideas and designs, not our national office. Of course other TRU stores could choose to do such an event. To date, I am the only one I know of so far. After 4 years of TF Fan Events, it would be hard not to do something for the movie.

It is hard for me to say at this point, since we have yet to receive the product. I would imagine though that everything Hasbro has on their checklist will be available on June 2nd, barring any shipping issues.

We will be giving out the checklists that night, but you can get one now at www.Transformers.com.
