I do love how they did the "Death! ...by snu-snu!" scene, with Fry and Brannigan's expressions shifting between horrified and delighted.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Also rat slime.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Yes but not Ghost slime. Just human and Bug slime.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 06:03 PM)

It doesn't matter what color slime NYC has, it's still been covered in slime for its entire existence.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 03:05 PM)

Not to mention the series is getting a reboot this year. In July so none of that junk counts.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:32 PM)

Not that kind of slime!!! Has New York ever been pink?! No that city has so much brown that it makes COD look bright and colorful.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 02:27 PM)

New York's ALWAYS been covered with slime.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:21 PM)

Also since New York wasn't covered in slime back in 89 it's quite moot isn't it?

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:15 PM)

Stupid ideas that I can't understand why we keep bring it up. Are we humans just that desperate to panic ourselves?

WORD! So you guys can walk up to a store counter with a arm full of Transformers but can't order a Happy Meal? I even asked which ones they had. Had to buy another Rarity and Cheerilee after I got the full set.

we haven't had awesome fast food TFs since Beast Wars/Machines.

None of the Happy Meal/Fast Food promos have been nearly as good as the very first McDonalds Beast Wars set that gave us actual New Original Characters with actually pretty neat minibot-type tfing toys. Loved those SO much that every promo since has been a let down.

The only runner up in coolness was Beast Machines which at least provided a resonably in scale Nightscream (how sad is it that he easily trumps the giant ultra one in my collection) and lots of inexpensive (though tiny) on model Vehicon drones.

I'm not sure what these could do that would be equally cool but I doubt they'll do it. ...I'm so bitter and dissolusioned about fast food freebies now...

Personally, I just want them (that is, whoever's doing a TF kids meal promotion) to do actual TFs that transform again. However simplistic. The last few promotions (were they all movie-related? I think they were. Another reason for me to hate the movies) utterly failed in even attempting actual transformations, focusing instead on stupid "action" features.

It varies vastly from location to location.

Some require you purchase a Happy Meal for each toy. Some require the purchase of one Happy Meal with the opportunity to buy additional toys. Some let you buy just the toys by themselves for a slight discount. Some let you buy just the toys, but charge you the full price of the Happy Meal anyway.

So it really depends on the manager more than anything.

Or there's San Francisco, where McDonald's is having to circumvent the local laws by saying that you can buy a Happy Meal for regular price, but if you want one of the toys it's an additional $0.10 donation to the Ronald McDonald House.

Yes, I did a paper on the whole "Ronald McDonald is making my kid fat!" hysteria for class last semester. It actually gave me an excuse to quote Denis Leary in an academic environment.
