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.

One thing I note with Bumblebee is that I'm pretty certain at this point that he's slightly mistransformed.  Pretty sure the rear wheels flip in to fill his ankle area, which will be great to finally have that detail properly replicated in plastic for once (and few Bumblebees have the wheels pinned to his ankles, but it's not quite the same as having them embedded in his ankles).  You can see that there's a suspiciously large gap in his ankles, with the support struts being conspicuously offset.

 

Also, his chest should close up tighter than that in robot mode.  You can see that the left headlight panel isn't collapsed as far as the right side one, so his chest should look narrower and a tad more accurate.

 

Yay, finally a transforming Bumblebee that has his two little "sub-wings".

That's basically a straight repaint of the AOE leader, right?

^ Dang what's the excuse for that? Though it is pretty as hell.

 

And making a second Masterpiece design (third large design) for a version of Bumblebee that's not even in the films anymore is kind of weirdly lateral?

Oh, okay.  So this is something completely different than I own already (in regards to Masterpiece Movie Bumblebee).

 

I might be interested if it's a better attempt at the iconic design then they created before.

Yeah, you can see it properly transformed in these stock photos:

http://www.taghobby....8a-1024x768.jpg

Definitely the best transforming representation of the design to date.

I didn't bite on that AoE leader before, and while I am disappointed that the new toolings were ignored, that DOES look awesome.

Glad the new Optimus is just a repaint so I can just buy the voyager that does look great and be on my way.

 

That Bumblebee is GORGEOUS. Hope one day I have enough money to get one.

Why.....why wouldn't they use the movie-accurate Armored Knight tooling? Is it not available? Is there some kind of rights issue? Like, that makes no sense. It exists, and it's more screen-accurate, and I doubt the tooling itself is somehow, like premium without the paint job. And this is possibly an asia exclusive anyway if it is! GAH.

 

That MP Bumblebee though. How big is it? I think I'm over movie stuff, but it DOES look nice.

Maybe there's more parts?  Or it's tied up with something else possibly?

 

Or more likely they figure this is an easy cash grab and the other tooling is slightly more expensive to produce.

Not having owned it, the only difference in terms of actual parts count spotted from all the detailed photos was a removable mouthplate. Aside from that, it was just, like, changes to the surface details.

 

I mean, I feel like you're right, it's just a bleh situation because that's a great deco gone to waste.

Bumblebee looks fantastic; I'm not sure I need him in a post-3A world, with the number of other transforming Bees I have, but I am thrilled to see (like archon said) one that finally has all four wings.

Interesting that 'Bee continues the old Movie Masterpiece numbering, I guess it's technically a Takara product which Hasbro Asia is importing as per usual.

It looks exceedingly dull to me, especially the "muddy" bit, so you aren't exactly alone on that one.  The truck mode looks a test shot.  I mean that in a bad way, not a literal one.

The retool added wrists.

The light gray upper arms on that Prime are a bit of a poor match with the rest of him.
