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?

@  Telly : (24 May 2016 - 12:26 AM)

is the christmas/holiday special in the latest mtmte trade? or atleast mtmte's segment of that comic

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.

Seriously. When frickin' Walky is telling you how to man up, you know you're a sad case. What are you guys, thirteen?

You're seriously embarassed by what some idiot at McDonalds will think of you if you buy MLP toys?

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.
