But when was the last time you saw a major retailer (since TRU) actually allot shelf space for a Transformers Titan? Or the Vintage Collection Poe X-Wing? There's clearly some sort of disparity between "girls" and "boys" toys that give companies justification to create $100+ items in the girls segment in FAR greater frequency than in boys.

@  fourteenwings : (25 January 2020 - 12:56 AM)

"how expensive they were" Tell that to L.O.L. O.M.G. and the $129 Amazing Surprise (I mean I guess when it comes to the toy aisle Power Rangers isn't a juggernaut like L.O.L.)

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:18 PM)

I think the big reason we didn't see the actual combining Zords at retail was because of how expensive they were. It would cost $100 to get enough of them to make a Megazord, $160+ if you want the Ultrazord. Or parents could just get the dang Ultrazord for $40 even if it didn't combine.

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

Because they are "kids toys" not "collector toys"

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 03:27 PM)

1) I don't have Target. 2) can't go into my walmart. I'm surprised Hasbro won't sell the toys on Pulse

@  Bass X0 : (24 January 2020 - 02:43 PM)

I dreamt my phone was ringing and woke up to answer it.

@  Sabrblade : (24 January 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The Lightning Collection figures, the smaller normal-sized Beast Morphers Ranger/enemy/Beast-Bot figures, the role-play morpher and weapon toys, and the simplistic non-combining megazord toys have all been very easy to find at various Targets and Walmarts. It's only been the actual combining Beast Morphers zord toys (which are bizarrely being sold individually this time) that have been hard to find in stores.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:49 PM)

Thought I do question Hasbro's almost reluctance to have the toys available anywhere.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 01:44 PM)

i've been trying to sell mine for weeks...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I hadn't opened mine yet, but from what I've seen, the general agreement is that the Beast Morpher zords are much better than Bandais.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I'm guessing if they're going to do anything on the level of Legacy Zords, it's being discussed behind NDAs at Toy Fair

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 January 2020 - 10:38 AM)

Lightning Collection is good, and they're taking their sweet time on making Zords that are better than Bandai's Zords.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 10:34 AM)

So, what's the general PR fandom consensus of the Hasbro run of PR so far? I pretty much stepped out of the community after I got the Bandai Legacy zords I wanted.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 08:46 AM)

that would require someone to BUY Hasbro PR toys...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 07:17 AM)

Well hopefully see some cool PR stuff. Wish BBTS sold Hasbro PR toys.

@  fourteenwings : (24 January 2020 - 07:01 AM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 06:32 AM)

When is NY TF?

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:43 PM)

I don't know about Hasbro's general policy but I know everybody was on lockdown for Frozen II, which included both LEGO and Hasbro. Plus, I'm guessing everybody is holding off PR for NY Toy Fair? Overall, it's best to remember that Toy Fairs are for buyers, not fans.

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:41 PM)

LEGO has been doing this for ages, including sending cease and desists when outlets get leaked images.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:42 PM)

And then they ended up selling off the brand, so I guess I wasn't the only one.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:41 PM)

Last time a toy brand I followed tightened down on toy fair and all the invited guests posted glowing reviews of what they saw, I ended up being disappointed as heck.

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:34 PM)

JediNews UK basically said they got a walkthrough of Lego's showcase...but were legally bound to NOT talk about anything, much less take pics.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:24 PM)

I wondered why I had seen basically nothing newsworthy from the event

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:14 PM)

Word is that Hasbro and Lego have their UK Toy Fair stuff on MAJOR lockdown. Full NDAs and everything.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 09:28 PM)

Seeing people say the $0.99 + $20 shipping item is cheaper than the $19.99 + free shipping item and getting tons of likes for it... I just don't know anymore.

@  Telly : (23 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

if you havent already, y'all check your walmarts clearance aisle. i found siege six shot for $5. course, it could just be my walmart, but never hurts to look

@  Benbot : (22 January 2020 - 04:27 PM)

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2020 - 03:24 PM)

In 50 years, retail will be dead because all stores are staffless fully automated operations controlled by Amazon. The UBI will be less than a fifth of what it actually costs to live after two decades of cuts and.a steadfast refusal to match inflation.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 January 2020 - 02:55 PM)

In fifty years retail will be a thing of the past through robots, printers and Universal Basic Income.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (21 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

Big retailers just don't want money anymore, so let's not give them any,

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 10:19 AM)

All retail is basically the same.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2020 - 10:00 AM)

Walmart just needs to go bankrupt already.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:19 AM)

They didn't put the 35th anniversary stuff back out until after new year. I'm no retail expert, but I feel like having stock on the shelf is better than the back. Especially toys at christmas time.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Yeah, my local walmart took away the 35th anniversary endcap weeks before Christmas and left the Transformer section empty well past Christmas.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:44 AM)

Mine only has the 35th Anniversary Voyagers. A whole lot of them.

@  Telly : (19 January 2020 - 11:35 PM)

just be happy your walmart even stocks voyagers. mine doesnt

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 January 2020 - 08:53 PM)

Figures that Walmart finally restocks Studio Voyagers...with Wave ONE

@  ThunderWear : (19 January 2020 - 09:27 AM)

I snagged Rainmakers for half off.  They make me want jolly ranchers.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 04:21 PM)

I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

The first movie ripped off The Amazing Spider-Man, so which alien invasion flick is this movie copying? The Avengers? DOTM? Man of Steel?

 

And Casey's in dire need of a better/more obvious Brooklyn accent.

 

On the upside, however, like how the first movie nailed the Turtles personality-wise, it looks like this film has likewise done justice to Bebop and Rocksteady. And possibly to Baxter Stockman as well (if that's who the Nutty Professor is supposed to be).

At least the Foot Soldiers are now ninja instead of generic terrorists.  And hot dang, they nailed Bebop and Rocksteady (even giving Bebop his classic purple mohawk).  Now if they can only fix the faces on the turtles.

The first movie ripped off The Amazing Spider-Man, so which alien invasion flick is this movie copying? The Avengers? DOTM? 

But here's the thing - those sequences were already visually indistinguishable, in ways not deriving from their respective source media, and were made that way during concurrent and unconnected development. Is every nostalgia property over a certain dollar value required to end in a climax with space worm ships and their SUV-shaped VTOL fightercraft? 

 

Is it because Independence Day is officially not old, but retro, now? But even that isn't nearly as specific as the aliens everyone's fighting lately. 


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Not going to lie, didn't hate that.

 

I actually surprisingly enjoyed the first movie (The interactions between the brothers/their personalities was spot on) and this seems to continue with the best parts of the first movie.

     Have to admit the first movie Left me a bit cold, didn't hate it but I wasn't blown away.  Started watching this with mild interest all the way to the point that Bebop and Rocksteady showed up.  The way they come across in the trailer is just so right.  Even the scene at the end with the tank would usually have me rolling my eyes with the slow motion and near miss but seeing Rocksteady bellowing and doing a fist pump in the air has me grinning like an idiot.  This movie actually has my attention now.​

The world has turned upside down. While I'm still not hot on the humans in the film they do seem to have Rocksteady and Bebop down pretty good. Curious to see who is coming out of the wormhole.

Heh, I ought to know better than to get too excited based on that trailer, but that really did look to have everything a 1980s/90s cartoon Turtle fan could reasonably want - 'cause that sure looks like a portal to Dimension X to me! 

 

My big problem with the first movie was that the intimacy of the Turtles' origin story was carved out - the hasty re-write that made it so Sachs was NOT the Shredder left the Turtles and Splinter emotionally severed from their villain, and had them learning ninjutsu of a book. Very cold and dispassionate, not the usual "family rivalry" that defines how they are linked. With that out the way, I think I'm being foolish enough to hope this sequel does more stuff right.

My big problem with the first one was how very very light and hollow it felt. Like the Remake of Clash of the Titans it managed to somehow remove all the depth and... Content... Of the original without being any shorter. It wasn't so much bad mostly as it was the thinnest shell of a chocolate Easter bunny possible and completely hollow inside.

The first movie's major issue was that it suffered from an identity disorder thanks to the original script being heavily revised, but not really rewritten, to be more familiar. There was still a lot of good in the movie, this one so far seems like they're not gonna have that so we will likely see what worked improved on.

Wow. That actually looks good. Its funny that we got more "realistic" ugly turtles in the first movie, and then this one give us bebop and rocksteady as nearly perfectly translated cartoon characters.

I was suprised how much I enjoyed the first movie. It ended up being very good turtle staring in a "michael bay film". If they can bring those turtles into a less hollow, more fun world, I think this movie could be great.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

I echo the sentiments here. There's a lot to like and hope for in that trailer.

If the actual film can focus on the Turtle brothers that much, and make Bebop and Rocksteady as good as they look, then i have hope.

I have yet to watch the first one, since i was put of by gow heavily it focuses on Megan Fox, while hollowing the great family origin of the Turtles for some trite conveniance.

However, this trailer implies the filmakers might have more care for this one.

I cross my fingers.
