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

@  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.

There are a bunch of Simba toys that have been revealed for Nuremburg.

 

Hot Wheels/Matchbox style cars based on Robots in Disguise Optimus, Bumblebee, Strongarm, Sideswipe, Drift, Steeljaw... and even Grimlock as a T-Rex shaped dragster/hot rod! There are about a dozen different color schemes for each car, and some having a light up gimmick.

 

There's single packs, 2-packs featuring the car and a PVC robot mode of the character, 3-packs, 5-packs... any way you can imagine them getting released. The robot mode PVCs exist for each of the cars, as well as Underbyte and Slipstream.

 

Ad then there's a play set scaled to those cars, an RC Drift that can convert to robot mode, some Laser tag or roleplaying weapons and vests... Just... Lots of RiD.

 

I thought this meant these until I reread and saw Drift, "dozen different color schemes", etc.

 

http://www.dickietoy...s/transformers/

 

It does have A dragster Grimlock...

 

Wow, that Optimus trailer alone might be worth the price of admission for me. Provided I can actually hitch it to one of my proper robots. With the various sizes of Optimus out there, one of them HAS to work.

 

 

...............................................................................................................................................................right?

 

These are Hot Wheels-ish, so with a Spychanger or maybe a Commander?

I expect people to complain about how it was a huge letdown because Hasbro didn't reveal a minimum of twenty-three (23) previously unrumored 100% perfect 3D recreations of G1 cartoon models and/or MTMTE/LL designs perfectly scaled for The Classics Shelf.


Or they'll complain because Hasbro did reveal that, but somebody leaked all of it two hours earlier, so Hasbro wasn't showing anything new.

I'm just sitting here hoping that Overlord has kissy lips.

It's hard to predict - we've had lots of IDW-specific sculpts in TR, but they've also proven willing to ditch particularly "un-G1" things like Perceptor's monocle...

Well, people do keep abbreviating the next live action film as TLK.

It isn't.

 

He does have a bit of clear plastic though.  Like clear orange eyes, head canopy, and leg circles, and clear turquoise in his tail area.

Full Tilt does look like he might be Deluxe sized now.

So any info on a Titanmaster for Trypticon? If Full Tilt is more like deluxe sized, does his head become a Titanmaster? I'd think there's at least got to be a Titanmaster included somehow.

I would tend to think one would be included, but I honestly don't know.  I've only seen Full-Tilt in var mode (he can fit on his chest like the original).  He's all purple, with black wheels and a double barreled black gun on his roof.  In the photo there isn't any paint on the figure, but I don't know if that's the way he's going to be or if it's because it's an early photo.

 

I'm speculating his height is around that of a Deluxe based on the photo, but it depends on how big Trypticon is compared to the other Titans.

Full Tilt clearly has no place to store a Titan Master himself, so it's likely he doesn't have one.

 

Not sure if they'd pack Trypticon with one for the heck of it, but nothing I've seen indicates he has one.  His head definitely doesn't transform to a Titan Master like Fort Max's.

 

I do wonder if the clear section in Trypticon's tail is a cockpit or something though.  Perhaps for Full Tilt.  Either that or something that lights up?

I really wonder if they'll just skip the Titan Master in the name of making him line up with Metroplex, and just include a lot of cockpits and mounting points, or something.

Hi, Randy!

 

Why are you being the jerk who talks about super secret things other people haven't seen yet and probably won't be able to because you saw things in advance of official reveal? I was that jerk once, and it's difficult to realise how it's jerkish when you're just sharing information, so I'm going to be as helpful as I can by saying the word jerk so many times in this post you become numb to it.

Because I think everyone will have seen photos of it in about 16 days.  :D

Or anonymously send the image as a news submission to one of the less scruplous fansites, so we can at least talk about it together instead of you figuratively masturbating over being the arbiter of information.

You're right, there's no good reason to leak the image for public viewing.

 

Is it bad to think that describing the image is similarily fraught, both socially and legally?
