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.

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.

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.

@  RC85747 : (22 February 2017 - 07:08 AM)

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)

(I haven't read IDW at all please don't sue me)

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

Tyrest? He was chief justice, even :p

@  Bass X0 : (21 February 2017 - 03:24 PM)

I kinda want an Autobot to have the function of "Social Justice Warrior".

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 February 2017 - 12:20 PM)

Even we have limits.

@  Robowang : (21 February 2017 - 12:18 PM)

Good. But let's agree not to do one for Tecumseh.

The original pilot focused on people working at an insurance company dealing with the fallout of superhero/supervillain clashes.  After an internal shakeup, the show has changed to be focused on a division of Wayne Enterprises that develops essentially "As Seen On TV"-style gadgets designed to protect civilians DURING these clashes.

 

Meanwhile, Alan Tudyk's (Firefly, Suburbia, Rogue One) has been revamped since the original pilot to be Bruce Wayne's cousin.

 

The show also stars Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical, High School Musical 2, High School Musical 3, and the probably inevitable High School Reunion Musical), Ron Funches, and Danny Pudi (Community).

 

The zany action starts Thursday, February 2, at 8:30 on NBC.

 

Unlike Constantine, I'm betting that there is no way to fold this into the Arrow-verse (or even Gotham), but maybe there's room for multiverse crossover cameos at some point.

For some reason, I thought this show already aired and got cancelled.  Alan Tudyk and Danny Pudi deserve better.

I love so many of the people involved in this that I am going to be a little sad when it flops. I remember the thread here describing this show's premise a while back and I admit I'm surprised it's made it this far. But it's really no more ridiculous than the other network television superhero shows that they just keep making. Someone must be watching. Not me, but someone!

I mean, if you gave me the choice between this and Maury Povich, I would definitely choose this.

The original concept of an insurance agency in the DC universe could have been interesting if handled well. Of course, that's assuming some effort was put into it and it could be argued that there likely wouldn't have been any. The new concept doesn't seem like it'll work in an established universe.

What's sad is that this show is taking the time slot of "The Good Place", a forking amazing show that's already had its season finale.

It's not desperation when it's a Krispy Kreme. Have you ever had one fresh off the line?

I've never done drugs, but I imagine that it has to be the closest one can legally get to crack.

Saw the first episode.  Such a great cast wasted on bland, generic humor.  Hopefully, it gets better from here, but I have my reservations.
