@  unitremover : (22 February 2017 - 09:36 PM)

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.

hascon

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 05:12 AM)

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)

Wouldn't IDW Megatron kind of count since his main reason for instigating the Great War was to overthrow the Functionist social order?

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:05 PM)

@  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)

@  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?

Hmm. If we do decide to incorporate Machine Robo into this, maybe it'd be an idea to use TFWiki-style suites to link between the GoBots and their Machine Robo counterparts.

I'd be for suites. If you're looking for what your Hans Cuff toy got up to, you'll want to easily see what he did as Hans Cuff, as whoever he was on Cronos, as one of Ex-El's troops in the Robo Machines comic that ran in Eagle, etc. It should all be linked.

Machine Robo continued after Go-Bots, in a way that Diaclone didn't really continue after Transformers. They've fed back and forth, and you've got stuff like Robo Machines that uses the Gobot faction lines but the MR names. That's my argument for including Machine Robo, for whatever it's worth.

I'm not convinced we want real detail on the Fun Pub era stuff beyond a link, largely because the duplication seems wasteful. Also, I'm wary of the Transformers content overpowering the Gobot originated stuff, particularly since this is going to be run by TF fans.

Well, there's the issue of the "Season 2" stuff from FP that's not on the wiki, on top of all the various didn't-happen-in-a-TF-universe stuff mentioned on Facebook. That needs to be considered.

 

Again, the idea is a GB wiki can't be approached the same as a TF wiki, and here's one of the smaller but significant differences. We don't NEED to try and sum up Cy-Kill with a characterization writeup that has to take into account a ton of different takes, as we have to with so many G1 guys. You really only got the one. A clean delineation is much easier to make because there is so little to split. You can very easily make the two-decades-later "Fun Publications" or "Transformers" or whatever stuff a fully-separate h3-level header or whatever and put the relevant additions there.

It's only spite if you set it to IP block the people who asked / cheated for it on TFWiki and Tumblr.

He's the reason TFWiki exists, in the same way that the guy who shot Bruce Wayne's parents is the reason Batman exists.

(TFWiki's parents were the potential for Transformers articles on Wikipedia to ever be competently written.)

(I guess the IDW Hasbro Wiki and the GoBots Wiki are various Robins in this analogy. Hopefully neither of them is Jason Todd.)

If there's one thing from the Fun Pub Facebook fiction that I feel should absolutely be taken into consideration for coverage of the Hanna-Barbera cartoon, it's the episode order presented in this Facebook post, as the original airdate order makes no sense whatsoever (outside of the five-part pilot) with its haphazard placements of "Lost on Gobotron", the five parts of the Gobotron Saga, "Nova Beam", "Cy-Kill's Cataclysmic Trap",  "Doppleganger", "The GoBots That Time Forgot",  and "Mission: Gobotron". And the production order is even more disastrous.

 

Conversely, the "optimal viewing order" on the Facebook post provides the most coherent flow of something resembling a continuity narrative.

Gotta love the help uber-nerds like Jim can provide.

Truth be told, the placements for "Lost on Gobotron" and "Doppleganger" were my suggestions (as the list originally had them in their airing order slots in the list's original typing before it was edited into its current revision), but all the rest of everything else was all Jim's awesome handiwork. :thumbsup :love
