I haven't been up there in a while but one of the Walmarts around here still has AOE deluxes out. Some of the CVSs do too.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 February 2017 - 09:34 PM)

It's been the same thing in local stores for ages up here.

@  BlackMax : (22 February 2017 - 09:33 PM)

One near me is the same - I swear they have over forty Deluxes there, all from many months ago.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 07:43 PM)

my walmart finally filled those empty tr pegs. and of course its a mix of waves one and 2 (wave 1.5?)

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 February 2017 - 07:11 PM)

Got Highbrow, Skullcrusher, Scourge, and Chromedome for $5 a piece

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 February 2017 - 07:10 PM)

My Walmart had a Generations Rattrap hanging for the past 2 and a half years, and in trying to clearance it, inadvertently marked down the entire Generations Deluxe assortment.

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 February 2017 - 07:09 PM)

A shelf warmer's ultimate revenge: being around long enough that in trying to clearance it...the store marks down the entire SKU!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:59 AM)

Eh, he would've gotten beaten up if the government sent just about anyone.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:56 AM)

Regardless, literally everything I've ever seen (and a lot on tfwiki) attributes Megatron's slide into violence to Whirl beating him up while in custody. Maybe not like flicking a switch but Megatron's line "You made me. You taught me words were weightless without force" kinda spells it out.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I'm not sure if there even was a specific turning point, but he didn't seem kill happy yet when he was with Terminus, and that was after Whirl beating him up.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:24 AM)

It was also before any sort of uprising or him actually doing much of anything.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:20 AM)

I mean, the whole thing didn't start as "the great war". It was an uprising that eventually morphed into a the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:17 AM)

Yeah, of course it's before the war, Whirl beating Megatron while he was in custody was the tipping point that made Megatron turn violent.

But the thing with Whirl was before he started the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 03:28 AM)

Like so many awful things in that universe, it's basically Whirl's fault.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 12:51 AM)

for about 10 minutes. then he got all kill happy

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 February 2017 - 10:27 PM)

@  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?

Just a rumor right now:

http://screencrush.c...hare_mobile_top

I'd love it for this to be true. I really love the Hulk (own every issue) and I've realy enjoyed the Thor movies. They're among my favorite Marvel films.

Now sure, In my dreams I'd give the Hulk another solo film (based on Peter David's classic Gamma Bomb story vs the Leader and Sheild) but barring that this could be really fun. Marvel loves doing different genre-bending versions of the superhero story. A Thor & Hulk buddy film would be absolutely awesome. :)


-ZacWilliam, in my dream Hulk films I'd also do a Grey Hulk film and Pantheon Hulk film, spin a She-Hulk off of one of those and only then the often speculated Planet Hulk, but that all seems unlikely so I guess I'll just dream of a Hulk out of water in Asgard Thor/Hulk buddy flick for now. :)

This could be, if true, really make Thor Ragnarok really cool.

I too would like one or more solo Hulk films. Except i would really prefer they steer well clear of Planet Hulk. I've just always found the idea of the best and brightest "Heroes" declaring the Hulk too unstable for Earth, and then shooting him off into space makes the good guys far less noble than i like.

I feel like you could do the bulk of Planet Hulk without that. Maybe Loki drops him there after Ragnarok or Thanos flings him there in one of the Infinity movies. Or someone does something that sends him on a rampage like the Witch did and they have no choice. I think the movies change enough parts of stories that you could make it work without making Tony and company terrible jerks.

-ZacWilliam, all that said, I honestly prefer Peter David Hulk which is what I'd really love to see on screen...

I remember someone trying to convince me that GotG2 was going to be the stealth Planet Hulk movie.

 

Anywho, there's a lot of rumors flying around about the Marvel stuff in the wake of NYCC (Inhumans is canceled!  Inhumans isn't canceled and Vin Diesel will be Black Bolt!  Iron Fist is canceled!) so I'd take this one with a grain of salt.  Ragnarok can easily be busy enough event for a film without tossing in the Hulk too.

 

And, and just in case you guys didn't know, Universal has the distribution rights to Hulk films (and Namor films too, apparently.)  So basically Marvel could make a Hulk (or Namor) film, and they would own it and the IP, but Universal would control distribution, meaning they would need to get a cut of the profits.  That's believed to be the main reason Marvel hasn't gone through with a new Hulk film as of yet.

Hulk among the Asgardians actually makes some sense, that's a pretty clever idea.  On the other hand, Banner makes a little less sense, although I guess he can pal around with Stellan Skarsgard in between fight scenes?  (I just realized that Thor spends so much time giving exposition that his relationship with the other Avengers isn't very well-defined.)

It's a good way to give us a Hulk-centric movie alongside a Thor movie-- Thor movies tend to be slightly weaker at the box office, but give us an Avengers 2.75 (Civil War is 2.5)? Money money boo-bah.

 

Also, Mark Ruffalo is an infinitely better casting choice than Ed Norton. No contest.

 

It'll also be a Planet Hulk movie in everything but name at this point, given Thor's cosmic attachment. Maybe give us a lead-in to Guardians 2, in the bargain (or vice versa? Which is out first?).

Guardians 2 is May of 2017, Thor 2 is November of the same year. (It was July but then the Spider-Man thing happened.)

 

Slapping Planet Hulk and Ragnarok together would be a bad idea, IMO.  Planet Hulk is a very personal story at it's core; about the Hulk being betrayed, abandoned and stranded on the other side of the Universe where he ultimately finds a place where not only is he accepted, but where he can accept the fact that he's accepted.  While you could probably substitute Asgard for Sakaar in that story, I think it takes something away if Thor is there palling around with him. (And if Thor ISN'T palling around with him, then I think the Hulk would be a bad fit for a movie called "Thor: Ragnarok." in the first place :D)

 

Also, Ragnarok itself will need to take up a lot of screentime, so I'm not sure you can really do justice for both Planet Hulk and Ragnarok in a single 2.5 hour film.

I don't actually expect it to be Planet Hulky at all.
I expect it I be a Thor film with a "Buddy Picture/Fish out of Water" hulk element thrown in for fun,

-ZacWilliam, having the hulk in it is going to be less than some folks imagine. Mostly I think it'll tie up the Thor/King Loki story and the hulk will just just be a smaller side part of that story.

Perhaps, if they do set up a Planet Hulk film, instead of it being the Avengers who ship Hulk off-planet and that's why Hulk feels betrayed by them, maybe he could be shipped off-planet by a villain and his feelings of betrayal could be based on how his allies failed to save him/chose to stop a bigger threat first that prevented them from saving him. In his mind, he could view their actions as their having abandoned him instead of their failure to save him actually having been something beyond their control.

Ragnarok probably won't set up a Planet Hulk movie, if for no other reason than I doubt Marvel is going to shoe-horn in ANOTHER film before Infinity War, and Hulk will almost certainly show up there.  Afterwards we might see something, but Marvel would still need to work things out with Universal regarding distribution rights, and ultimately, Marvel has a TON of other characters who they could make a film about without needing to come to an agreement.

Honestly, this is the movie that needs to setup Thanos as a powerhouse and a full fledged character, and not just some posturing, idle guy.

 

I highly imagine a scenario where Thanos is going to take advantage of Loki's takeover to grab the Infinity stone residing in Asgard.      I'm assuming Thor eventually finds out Loki is pretending to be the All Father, brings in Bruce for obvious reasons, and then right before Loki gets another looney tune pounding....boom.   Thanos shows up and goes all Ragnorok on Asgard, requiring the three powerhouses to join forces to try to get rid of Thanos, but ultimately lose.       It would be also a get setup for something to happen with the Nova Corps in GotG2 (whether it's just a cameo thing or part of the movie itself, who knows, but there's going to be something to setup Infinity Wars).

Cool cast and cool new characters. I love the Thor movies and I love the Hulk so this should be a lot of fun.

Love seeing the concept art of Hela. Love the idea of Goldblum as that character. Love another female Marvel character. Really neat to hear we're getting Executioner at last.
