After the season finale where RM Corp found a way to make thinking Bots, I was hoping for a continuation of the story where Paradim learned the hard way the downside of Bots that can say, "No."

@  Rycochet : (28 September 2016 - 09:40 AM)

I liked Phantom 2040 more.

@  Blues : (27 September 2016 - 05:08 PM)

I LOVE BOT MASTER SO MUCH. Too bad the toys sucked. I even own jungle fiver. I love him so much, but he can barely stand on his own.

@  MEDdMI : (27 September 2016 - 04:50 PM)

Ninjzz? That's an unfortunate name.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 04:44 PM)

Also I thought Fico Ossio was quite nice on Revolutions.

@  Telly : (27 September 2016 - 04:26 PM)

for the longest time i thought jungle fiver was called jungle fiBer

@  Bass X0 : (27 September 2016 - 04:21 PM)

Does anybody remember the cartoon Bots Master? I enjoyed the show but looking back on it, most of the robot designs were lame. The only cool designs were Jungle Fiver and Ninjzz although the toys were nothing compared to Transformers of course. I thought the main human characters were decent enough for a show about robots. 

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:43 PM)

Although this is odd to me, since I'm fairly sure they are/were good friends.

Social media is the worst thing to happen to fandom, you can now see people whose work you like being jerks or shills on a daily basis, which is worse than a bad interview or two.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:05 AM)

Also, I guess he hates IDW Soundwave for not being an emotionless brick like the cartoon version? Man. Any enjoyment of Animated in future is going to be tainted for me by the fact that DJW is the worst kind of boring Geewunner.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:04 AM)

He also hates Action Man for no apparent reason other than "I don't know who this is and I don't care to find out". Which isn't fair, because Ian is the best character in IDW.

@  Jalaguy : (27 September 2016 - 06:47 AM)

DJW was mouthing off about the art for Revolution the other day too, doesn't entirely surprise.

Oof.

@  zephyrX9 : (26 September 2016 - 08:05 PM)

Sipher made a sarcastic remark about Sakamoto's skeeviness. Derrick called him an a**hole, and insulted his art, which was a low, unnecessary blow.

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 September 2016 - 07:43 PM)

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 03:49 AM)

I've had versions where the issue doesn't come up (or at least doesn't come up in the part I notice the most), but the version that got remastered for Bluray and DVD releases have it.

@  Nevermore : (26 September 2016 - 02:05 AM)

I initially misheard "flying tools of torment" as "we're flyin' into some torment".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2016 - 01:08 AM)

If it's a problem with all released versions, maybe the original audio source was itself damaged?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

I wish they'd relase a remastered version that fixed the audio and included at least had an option to have the text crawl rather than the credits at the start.

@  Telly : (25 September 2016 - 09:27 PM)

tryin to buy the movie from amazon for $20-ish. the price of it has been fluctuating like crazy. not a day has gone by that it hasnt dropped to one price and then gone back up a few hours later. never seen a price fluctuate so much

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:57 PM)

Then again, a lot of versions of the movie had pretty bad sound quality, even the most recent blu-rays mess it up in places, so it's not as much our fault if we misheard stuff.

@  Arazyr : (25 September 2016 - 07:28 PM)

When I first heard it, half of it may as well have been in a foreign language, for all I could make out. (Of course, I can say that about most music...)

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:14 PM)

I can't remember entirely, and I can't "hear" anything but the actual lyrics now, but I remember "I am born to hurt you, I'll break the boundless sky" as how my brain parsed the first words.

well, the ad pictures Double-Clutch and Smolder, so that'll be disappointing. If it turns out to be some of the later molds people've had problems finding, might be better for them. I've got 'em all, tho, so meh.

I'm willing to roll the dice on that one.

I know my store got a lot of late release/hard to find stuff when Hasbro gave them the last "unsold pile of toys" back in 2009. Either way, I skipped enough of PCC to a gander worth it. Here's hoping for some final wave commanders slipping in.

A Walmart near where I live has several of the last wave of 5 packs, so it's possible they're getting some of the later toys.

Pretty much the same in my case. I'm not particularly worried, considering I just recently managed to track down all the PCCs I was missing, but still, count this as a surprise.

Is it wrong that I'm kinda hoping these are limited to the earlier releases, just so that I don't feel stupid for spending close to a hundred bucks to track down the four guys I was still missing?

I promise it won't be worth it. Especially for the big items. They'll have *maybe* 2-5 of them in stock. The ad is really just to get you in the door so that you'll buy stuff anyway to justify the headache.

Actually, on a sort of related note...

How is this going to work for Walmarts that already are open 24 hours/day? Granted it's Thanksgiving, so maybe they will close for some hours (or the whole of Nov 24) before opening again at 12:01? Will people be waiting in-store or outside for the buys?

In 24-hour stores, generally the Black Friday stuff is only found on pallets and other displays; those get wrapped in plastic in the back before being brought out to the floor. Once the stockers have brought them out, employees are posted in each department to ward off the customers (who can and do crowd around them, but aren't allowed to touch). On cue, the workers slice off the plastic wrap and the hordes descend upon the items.

Last year the Wal-Mart here did not let people down the isles. They had employes posted at each isle and the customers had to tell them what they wanted. Said item would get tagged some how and then brought to the front. I was in Afghanistan at the time but Mrs. Smitty was telling me about it.

I only ever got Searchlight and Sledge, so I might brave the local Wal-Mart to see if they get any.

I've got to be out anyway to do the paper route, and so if I'm quick I might be able to be in and out before the head carrier arrives.

Target's opening has been moved back to 1 AM on Black Friday. Apparently some states have laws about not allowing anyone in the building during the holiday, so we can't stay in past midnight Wednesday to set up, thus the hour to actually get the sale items ready. Wal-Mart doesn't mind paying the fines, but Target does, apparently.
