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 like the 2007 Voyager. It's got an intuitive transformation that accomplishes a a lot and BBOP inherits a lot of the Leader's fiddliness, the only major consolation being he doesn't keep introducing himself.

That leg transformation may be one of the crowning achievements of the 07 Movie line.

Another thing I like about the 07 mold is the detail. I think it wears a premium paint job better than the 2010 mold. The 2010 mold may have more accurate proportions but the detailing is weirdly soft. It's not a very good looking toy.

I have a soft spot for the 2007 leader Optimus mold, not so much the voyager. The HFTD voyager certainly is fiddly, though.

I really love that original Leader Optimus. I know it doesn't represent the movie model as well as the ROTF-and-on Leader at all, but it's more fun as a toy and in absolute terms just a big fun chunky '88-style toy.

The listing at BBTS says Soundwave is the Human Alliance one. I'm not familiar enough with the toy to tell.

 

Maybe I'm the only person, but I really like the the inaccurate deco on ROTF Voyager Megs. It's way more interesting than his actual movie colors. That one was the only movie megs in my collection for a long time.

 

I love that deco. It's not quite the "realistic" weathering you see on some toys, but more of a lurid, comic booky interpretation of weathered metal, and it really works. I gave that toy up when I was aggressively purging toys from my collection, but he's one of the very few I'll probably repurchase.

It really is.  It felt absolutely like a natural progression from Cybertron figures, too.  Like, if there hadn't been a movie, I think we'd still have seen a similar figure with boxes instead of curves.

I loved the teal version. Night Attack or something. That was an awesome figure. Not sure what I did with mine.

The feet on mine lost the ability to stay transformed not long after I got it, which is a little depressing.

What did you do to the feet?  If we're talking about the same one, there's not a whole lot to break there unless you were prying out the toes instead of swiveling the bumper half around or something.

I'm pretty tempted to get that Soundwave. Kinda wish they'd include Wheeljack/Q and Dino/Mirage in the lineup, but I guess that's not too much of a big deal.

That's how mine is.  The springs in the feet can eventually wear out the locking notches that keep the bumper in place, so the feet just pop back with little provocation.

Trying to hide how huge the kibble really is.

 

It's a shame the kibble's not detachable because it's otherwise an excellent representation of that Megatron. I know people have a soft spot for the green, but the movie colors make it easier to appreciate just how good the likeness is.

I *love* the green! It was a perfect 'zombie'/patina color, the shade a robot that's been dead at the bottom of the ocean should be.
 
Still wish we had gotten that version that had crabs and barnacles and things painted on...

 
I...didn't know about that version.

Yup I feel that way about the 07 leader too. I got it in a big bin of toys as a gift, and I was surprised at how fun it is. So I keep it for that and I have BBOP as my model-accurate Prime. I enjoy 07 leader Megs too, but I wouldn't say he's as good of a toy as OP.

A lot of these are good, if obvious, redecos, and it's a decent "greatest hits" lineup of the films. Though I wonder if there's an audience for this stuff anymore. I feel like I've mostly moved on, though some of these are tempting.

 

So we haaaave....

 

-Evasion Mode Optimus in a new deco, in his red and blue colors, but weathered.

-DOTM Deluxe 'bee, only with some kind of Gatling Gun weapon instead of his Mechtech (anyone recognize it?)

-The long-awaited ROTF Voyager Megs movie-accurate redeco. (This is attempt #3 at a release, right? Watch this get cancelled, too).

-A DOTM Voyager Shockwave re-release? Maybe a metallic deco?

-HFTD Deluxe Ironhide, probably in some kind of premium deco.

-What looks like DOTM Deluxe Ratchet repainted into his Movie 1/2 colors, with a tiny pistol instead of his Mechtech (again, anyone recognize it?)

-A DOTM Deluxe Soundwave re-release, minus accessories? (Yay for rarity, boo for lack of weapon)

-Some use of the ROTF Starscream mold, which I'm guessing will be in Movie 1 colors

-A voyager Grimlock with a mini Optimus rider?

-A Voyager Strafe, also with a mini Bumblebee rider

-ROTF Buster Prime, only with his DOTM Abs retool, a single sword from the Asia Release, and the faceplate on.

 

 

Mmkay, having been obsessed with Movie toys for quite some time, here' s my attempt to answer some questions and clarify:

 

Evasion Mode Prime with COVETED FACEPLATE WOO! There were only, like, 2 versions of of this mold with faceplates that were hell to get, one at WalMart and one that was "Rusty Ver." in Japan. This one has a faceplate as well as a more accurate deco versus the other battle damaged versions that just white-washed him. So... yay!

 

Looks like a weapon off of one of the DOTM Roadbuster or Topspin toys. Could be new though.

 

I hope not, I'm def getting this one!

 

Looks like movie-accurate deco.

 

Yeah, minus accessory too. This mold was crap. Pass.

 

Weapons definitely from DOTM Deluxe Topspin.

 

HA Soundwave re-release minus Lazerbeak and Gould dude.... and with A NEW HEAD! The original HA SW had a visor, this one it seems like doesn't. Might totes get this one too.

 

Looks like it, and it does NOT look like they will be using the pre-tooling with the fold-open launchers; they still look like a solid piece with the forearms.

 

A deluxe Strafe (there was no Voyager version).

It's the same head, just with a drastically different paint job.
