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

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.

Yyyyyeah, that's ANOTHER one that Marvel shouldn't be recasting. I think J.K. Simmons even said on Stern recently that he wants to play the role again.

Not only that he wants to, he even hinted that there'd been some talk about it on some level.

 

So if Sony's not averse to reusing any previous actors, they could do a helluva lot worse than sticking with a proven favorite who's also picked up an Oscar nomination in the meantime.

I'm really curious how Civil War will work. To be in anyway like the source material you need a certain population of Super powered folk in the Universe. Adding Spidey and Black Panther should help but they really need more, and that's a LOT of stuff to intro in one film AND continue the character story lines from Cap 2...

ZacWilliam, there are lots of ways they can make it work I'm just curious what form it ends up taking..:

I still want it to be as little like the source material as possible.

 

Just "Cap and Tony disagree on something", now with extra added "and Spidey in the middle". Beyond that, the movie could be about the three of them trying to order lunch.

MCU Civil War will result in Tony coming up behind Bruce and pushing him down some stairs yelling "PARKOUR!"

 

Spidey, traveling by, misinterprets the comment and spends the rest of the movie paranoid that Stark has discovered his secret.

We already know from the interviews Feige did around the announcement that the disagreement is going to be over whether the super heroes have to answer to the government/authorities.

But yeah, it's certainly shaping up to be a busy film. If I'm remembering correctly, all the following have been confirmed for it: Cap, Iron Man, Black Panther, the Falcon, Black Widow, the Winter Soldier, Crossbones, Zemo, and now Spidey.

How would I do Civil War?

I'd suggest in A2 that superheroes were becoming a bigger thing and there are more. Then I'd start Civil War with some version of the Stanford Incident ( I'd prefer not to kill the real New Warriors though cause I LIKE them). Iron Man responds by thinking we need to get all Super Powered folk on sides as a Government sponsored Avengers Army. Cap thinks that's a terrible idea given how Hydra turned SHEILD into. Some actual Villian escallates thing and the disagreement turns into actual combat between two teams. Cap gets Black Panther. Spidey starts on IM side then tries to make peace petween them. Eventually they work together enough to take down the villain ( Baron Zemo?) and that leads to Iron Mans view triumphant for the moment and Cap arrested.

I fully realize that's not as awesome and intricate and surprising a plot as Cap2. That was a really great film. Honestly I don't know how to make Civil War into that good a story. I would have prefered their fake tease of "Serpent Society".

-ZacWilliam, the Serpent Society is just so fun and campy if done in their wonderful themed costumes. Plus Diamondback.

I'd almost suspect that with how late Civil War likely is in pre-production (got to get it out by May of next year), that Spidey's role will be akin to an extended cameo/minor role (like Phil Coulson in Iron Man 1) simply as a precaution from Sony dicking around with things.

 

Personally, if I was doing this and if Sony is really game to leave the creative side to Marvel, I'd do a "transition" film in 2017.  Start the film with the Peter Parker we all know and love, and pull a "Metal Gear Solid 2" and flip focus to a Miles Morales based Spider-Man film.  To me, that'd be a GREAT way to to cover most basis: the companies get the recognizable Spidey for marketing, Marvel/Sony get to do a new origin film without retreading the same material for a third time, Marvel gets "their own" Spider-Man to integrate with the greater MCU and it would help distance this version from the prior installments both in time and by giving audiences a "new" Spider-Man, something fresh for the films.

 

But that might be a little too optimistic.

What's interesting about Spidey in the MCU is the fact that most of the heroes (and villains) we've seen so far don't maintain secret identities. From the end of the first movie, Stark was very openly Iron Man, and we've watched the impact that has had in the lives of those around him. Everyone knows Steve Rogers is Captain America. Heck, Barton and Romanov barely even have codenames.

 

With Spider-Man and Daredevil we'll be seeing the seeds of 'masked' heroes that spins the MCU version of the Civil War story. It's an interesting dynamic to add to the mix.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

iirc, MArvel has been pushing at getting Spidey for Civil War since they decided to do it. I would theorize that he has role in it, and that if it wasn't him they'd use another siimilar 'young idealistic hero' to fill the basic role.
