Oh wait, figured it out. Doi...

@  Pennpenn : (19 February 2017 - 04:02 AM)

I'm kinda disappointed how they messed up Legion Bisk's hands so that his front wheels can't roll.

@  RichardT1977 : (19 February 2017 - 12:45 AM)

One of the Walmarts near me has some pegs full of Wave 1 TR deluxes.

@  Paladin : (18 February 2017 - 09:39 PM)

https://twitter.com/autobase_aichi/status/833142409005391872 ....is that an MP DINOBOT teaser?!?!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 February 2017 - 09:35 PM)

Yeah, never seen a Titans Return Hot Rod

@  LBD "Nyt... : (18 February 2017 - 08:58 PM)

Or Hot Rod. D=

@  LBD "Nyt... : (18 February 2017 - 08:58 PM)

Wow, seriously? I don't think I've even seen him here. =(

@  Msol : (18 February 2017 - 07:50 PM)

Yeah Mindwipe shelfwarmed like crazy in Vancouver.

@  Steevy Maximus : (18 February 2017 - 07:36 PM)

My Walmart still has a Rattrap floating around. My frustration is I've seen Hot Rod and Doublecross, but still haven't seen a Highbrow

@  ShadowMan024 : (18 February 2017 - 07:02 PM)

I still haven't seen any Wave 3 Deluxes aside from the Triggerhappy I got off eBay.

@  Pennpenn : (18 February 2017 - 06:54 PM)

Fairly sure the Target near my work still has a CW Wheeljack hanging around the Wave 3 TR deluxes. Just wish we'd gotten Wave 2 deluxes...

@  ShadowMan024 : (18 February 2017 - 06:53 PM)

CW deluxes from the later waves clogged the shelves real bad.

@  ShadowMan024 : (18 February 2017 - 06:52 PM)

Correction: TR deluxes don't shelfwarm.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 February 2017 - 06:47 PM)

Generations deluxes don't shelfwarm.

@  Msol : (18 February 2017 - 06:30 PM)

Hm, interesting. Some of the pegs seem to have the correct names when they've been shelfwarming for a while. So like Mindwipe would be on a peg labelled MINDWIPE next to WOLFWIRE, etc.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2017 - 06:30 PM)

It would make less sense to track individual figures when they're ordered by the assortment anyway.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 February 2017 - 03:02 PM)

Nope. walmart tends to scan the first UPC of the assortment, then use it for the entire assortment. Actually tracking data makes to much sense.

@  Msol : (18 February 2017 - 02:37 PM)

So hey I bought Triggerhappy from Walmart a few days ago and just notice the receipt said TRIGGERHAPPY on it. Not the assortment name or whatever. Are they using this info to better track character sales or something?

@  unluckiness : (18 February 2017 - 07:13 AM)

I think there was a premonition panel in the Devil's Due TF vs JOEs

@  Bass X0 : (18 February 2017 - 05:28 AM)

When an app asks me to give a review or a rating, I decline, but I always look at other people's reviews before I get an app.

@  Sockie : (17 February 2017 - 10:07 PM)

TF vs G.I. Joe counts more than anything else.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (17 February 2017 - 08:52 PM)

Does that even count?

@  LBD "Nyt... : (17 February 2017 - 08:52 PM)

OH, that one.

@  Pennpenn : (17 February 2017 - 08:39 PM)

The most recent one, I think? I don't think Fort Max or Trypticon even appear in the earlier ones.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (17 February 2017 - 08:37 PM)

Which one was that?

@  unitremover : (17 February 2017 - 07:16 PM)

They did in the Scioli TF vs GI Joe

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 February 2017 - 05:37 PM)

Have Fortress Maximus and Trypticon ever fought each other before Titans Return?

@  Dekafox : (17 February 2017 - 05:20 PM)

Smart Brain? He's trying to take over the world through weaponized electronic accessories?

@  Msol : (17 February 2017 - 05:16 PM)

Reminds me of Smart Robin in a good way.

@  Msol : (17 February 2017 - 05:16 PM)

Oh man Triggerhappy is awesome.

@  Rycochet : (17 February 2017 - 11:30 AM)

I'm afraid to imagine what was done to it to turn it into bubble tea.

@  MEDdMI : (17 February 2017 - 11:04 AM)

You must have been feeding it. That's when it turns from sweet tea to bitter mutated chaotic tea.

@  Rycochet : (17 February 2017 - 11:00 AM)

I didn't know Tea could do that, I thought it just turned into a disgusting drink.

@  MEDdMI : (17 February 2017 - 10:59 AM)

They also multiply when they get wet. Don't feed them after midnight, either.

@  Rycochet : (17 February 2017 - 10:58 AM)

Don't get them wet otherwise you'll end up with a case of brownbelly.

@  MEDdMI : (17 February 2017 - 10:56 AM)

What about t-shirts made out of tea bags?

@  Rycochet : (17 February 2017 - 10:55 AM)

No, no, it's teens who need putting in airtight containers, tea you can leave anywhere.

@  MEDdMI : (17 February 2017 - 10:53 AM)

Tea is best stored in airtight containers, not china.

@  Rycochet : (17 February 2017 - 10:24 AM)

I thought all the tea was in china.

While out toy hunting with a fellow fan from Slovakia yesterday, we went to the Toys"R"Us store in Dortmund-Oespel, and afterwards to the Real store right across the street from TRU.

TRU had RID Warrior Scorponok and Power Surge Optimus Prime, as well as Clash of the Transformers Warrior Starscream and Paralon. Paralon was bought by the fan from Slovakia for a certain fan from Hungary who shall not be named.

Real had wave 2 of the Titans Return Deluxes (Chromedome, Highbrow, Mindwipe and Wolfwire), now only one of each left, the other four were grabbed by the visitor from Slovakia. Also available was wave 2 of the Titan Masters (Brawn, Clobber, Apeface and Skytread), wave 2 of the RID Mini-Con Battle Packs (Bumblebee/Major Mayhem and Grimlock/Back) and the revision case of the RID One-Step Changers wave that contains Optimus Prime, Strongarm and Blizzard Strike Sideswipe but replaces Bumblebee with Drift in the new "Weaponizers" packaging style.

RID Power Hero Starscream is also available at Toys"R"Us in Hagen.

A lone Titans Return Legends wave 2 Ravage at the Galeria Kaufhof store inside the CentrO shopping mall in Oberhausen. First sighting for Germany, no trace of Laserbeak or Rumble.

A really bizarre discovery at Müller in downtown Gelsenkirchen: Aside from a lone Combiner Wars Deluxe Trailbreaker, they also had Legends Wreck-Gar, whom I've previously only seen online at Toys"R"Us a few days ago. Wondering when Voyager Sky Lynx is going to pop up.

Rossmann in downtown Krefeld (the one on Rheinstraße, right next to Toys"R"Us) has Series 6 of the Tiny Titans - First sighting for Germany.
Rossmann_Krefeld_Rheinstr2016_12_13_1.jp Rossmann_Krefeld_Rheinstr2016_12_13_2.jp

The completely remodeled Real store in Krefeld-Oppum (now known as "Markthalle Krefeld") has a massive section devoted to Transformers (just like pretty much everything about this Real store is ginmormous). Among other things, they have wave 2 of the Titans Return Titan Masters and Deluxes, wave 1 of the Voyagers, the Robots in Disguise One-Step Changers Ratchet and Bisk, wave 2 of the Mini-Con Battle Packs with Grimlock/Back and Bumblebee/Major Mayhem, wave 4 of the Mini-Cons with Glacius, Ransack and Scorch Strike Jetstorm, plus also Series 6 of the Tiny Titans.

Christmas surprise:

Müller inside the Minto shopping mall in downtown Mönchengladbach has Combiner Wars Legends Wreck-Gar (don't panic, the €30 price applies to Deluxes, which is still steep, but not as bad as if it were the price for the Legends figures), as well as the Voyager wave with Sky Lynx and Onslaught! The latter had seen a few scarce sightings in Germany, but I myself have never seen him before. Sky Lynx, meanwhile, is a new arrival at German retail.

RID Combiner Force Activator Combiners Trickout/Strongarm and Stuntwing/Bumblebee plus the Warriors Blastwave, Stormshot, Alpine Strike Drift, Starscream and the re-releases of Strongarm and Grimlock at Spielzeugparadies Wagner in downtown Bochum. Also Titans Return Voyager Astrotrain and Alpha Trion as well as wave 2 of the Titan Masters, Legends and Deluxes.

Spiele Max in downtown Bochum also has Titans Return Legends Ravage, Rumble and Laserbeak.

Toys"R"Us in Duisburg-Meiderich has the RID Combiner Force Activator Combiners Trickout/Strongarm and Stuntwing/Bumblebee as well as the Crash Combiners Sideswipe/Bumblebee and Strongarm/Optimus Prime.

The best part: All RID-Figuren have individual EAN barcodes! Apparently Hasbro changed something on a fundamental level, finally assigning every figure in an assortment an individual EAN barcode (just like every figure in non-European packaging has its own individual UPC barcode) instead of assortment-specific barcodes. This will hopefully make things easier especially for online retailers such as Amazon.

The same apparently also applies to wave 3 of Titans Return, as I was able to find individual EAN barcodes for all wave 3 Titan Masters, Legends, Deluxes and Voyagers. This in turn allowed me to dig up these listings at Amazon Germany:

Titans Return Leader Six Shot early listing

Titans Return Voyager Optimus Prime in stock, ships from and sold by Amazon
Titans Return Voyager Megatron, available February 20, ships from and sold by Amazon

Titan Master Fangry early listing
Titan Master Sawback early listing
