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

@  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.

I would like a more G1ish Chromedome too. A3 is a lock and so is Mindwipe, but Scourge will take some convincing.

I'll be honest the only way I'm buying that Scourge is if I decide I like the Titanmaster gimmick so much that I want every little head guy to mix and match. It's not the worst thing ever, but the Gen version just looks better in pretty much every way aesthetics wise.

ZacWilliam, that said I can see myself buying it for the head really. We'll see...

Pretty much where I'm at with the line.

 

For the larger figures, I'm pretty much only in it for the ones that were actually Headmasters in G1 (although I'll get PMOP and might get Galvatron and Alpha Trion for those characters regardless of gimmick). But I could EASILY see myself becoming enamored with the mini-figs and their interactions with the larger figures as vehicles and bases.

Episode 119
Rumors for 7/30/2015

1. Blaster is Leader Class.
2. Soundwave is Leader Class.
3. Leader Class Optimus Prime's head will turn into a Ginrai/High-Q. No word on whether it has a base mode or Roller, but Combiner Wars Ultra Magnus can do a base mode, so it's likely.
4. It looks like the Headmasters will fit on Generations Voyager Brainstorm.
5. It does not look like Cerebros will have a vehicle mode.
6. Titans Return will be very season 3/4 and The Rebirth centric. Think twice before buying third party Headmasters. (they might be Voyager size).
7. Headmasters will all come with a small accessory/partner who is a vehicle for the Autobots or a creature for the Decepticons, that the head can connect to. These accessories have 5mm pegs, for possible weapon modes.
8. For the Deluxes in Titan Wars, expect the 1986 movie robots in "2005" Cybertronian alt modes, like Blurr, Hot Rod and Kup.

 

Apparently Kup and Hot Rod were mentioned in one of the podcasts and went unreported (?) until now. 

 

Obviously people assumed a new Hot Rod was coming based on the Junkion set.

I still think that choosing to do the Movie characters as Headmsters is a bad idea. Pretty much all of them have head shapes or protrusions incompatible with the general Headmaster "fold into a cube" transformation unless they have helmets to complete the look like the bigger toys.

Kup could work as a Headmaster.  Hot Rod (either IDW or Movie) would be more difficult.

 

Though they did round Brainstorm's head up quite a bit.

 

Am I the only one who finds it funny that Chromedome has the better (IMO) toy colors for his head rather than the IDW colors?  Especially when the TFSS version originally had the toy colors (while not IDW accurate surely are the more stand out choice) and were then changed due to fan demand.  :D

 

As for why I like the original head colors better it's because the helmet, face, and eyes don't end up all blended in together.  :doh

I hope that the Cyclone Minicons show Hasbro that they can make robots out of near-spheroid shapes IF they actually plan a Hot Rod.

Because a square-headed Hot Rod would be...  :puke

I do wonder if Hot Rod will be full on Movie like Blurr and Scourge or if he'll be IDW based like Chromedome.

 

Or even possibly toy based like Hardhead.

 

We have the Masterpiece coming up, but we haven't gotten a really good Movie or IDW style Hot Rod figure (the Classics one hasn't aged that well) so I could see them going either way.

I'd imagine that the Horrocons, being triple changers, would likely be voyagers rather then deluxe, and we've not see too many voyagers for the line yet. I half expect Galvatron to be remolded into one of them.
