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.

Alright Mother Hubbards, let's stop beating around the bush, I'm doing this:

IDW Hasbro Wiki Main Page

Give me suggestions for what templates need importing. Just had a successful go at bringing storylink over, so if I have a list I'm pretty sure I can get everything working.

For things like Revolutionaries and post-Revolution GI Joe, which will presumably be covered (for the most part) in full on TFWiki, would this link back despite them not being just Transformers? No sense in redundancy of information, but... well, they're not Transformers.

I think grouping things under the sole basis of "TFWiki doesn't allow them" is an incredibly bad idea.

(It's not like there's that much GoBots information in existence. Anyone could probably put a functional GoBots wiki together in a week if they wanted to.)

(Also, if the GoBots wiki happens, you might want to consider having character infoboxes unlike TFwiki; f'rinstance, most GoBots characters have only one known alt-mode, unlike Transformers characters.)

I don't have a ShoutWiki account, but would be happy to get one and contribute to this. Especially since I only really started to become active on TF Wiki with Revolution.

I can do ROM stuff.

My suggestion would be that anything TFWiki will be covering in entirety gets linked out. Zero point in duping content/splitting effort.

I agree with Broadside that arbitrary grouping together of things is probably unwise.

But the positive is that once I've hacked together the CSS for all the necessary templates on this wiki, it ought to be pretty easy to set up another one for GoBots.

I feel like TFWiki could stand to have character infoboxes, though. Faction, franchise and year of origin, continuity family.


(Yes, I know there's the first sentence in articles, but it was always a pretty unappealing design choice to me.)

Okay, so I've set up what's hopefully the basic set of templates needed.

I copied over your Micronauts: Revolution template as a test bed, Broadside, and everything seems to be in working order:

http://idwhasbro.sho...uts:_Revolution

Interwiki linking is done by appending 'transformers:' to the start of a link, see that article for examples. If anyone runs into a template they want, tell me and I'll try and sort it out.

Seriously, though, if it's a Revolution wiki, then sure, it's a bad idea. If it's, say, an expanded Hasbroverse idea, then GoBots probably fits right in. And I think the folks at Hasbro would be tickled pink to see an expanded Hasbroverse wiki, assuming the quality is there.

I'm not sure how you'd define "expanded Hasbroverse", though. Do you include, like, Stretch Armstrong? Candy Land? Oh, god, would you cover the entirety of Dungeons and Dragons!?

I think that's just generally too broad a scope to be useful. A "GI Joe and offshoots wiki" covering all iterations of those franchises, sure. An "IDWverse Wiki" covering the non-Hasbro properties but only their IDWverse iterations, sure. But, like... "non-Transformers Hasbro properties that have interacted with Transformers in some way" is just going to be a mess.
