@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 July 2018 - 04:08 PM)

I did no such thing! I am innocent of the pop tart corruption!

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2018 - 02:57 PM)

You guys made me buy cinnamon roll Pop Tarts today.

@  Otaku : (16 July 2018 - 02:38 PM)

@D Immortalis Just fill the bag with air first and pop that? XP Oh, and you won't like that I grew up microwaving them more often than actually toasting. ;)

@  Otaku : (16 July 2018 - 02:37 PM)

@MEDdMI Yeah, the even more artificial flavors like S'more are the ones that usually taste good cold. There exceptions... I think it was Sugar Cookie that needed to be toasted...

@  D Immortalis : (15 July 2018 - 06:43 PM)

if po tarts dont POP then they become a lie.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2018 - 05:10 PM)

I typically just went for the traditional flavours... I think mostly Rasberry or Strawberry. I'll have to pick up a box next time I'm out

@  MEDdMI : (15 July 2018 - 04:09 PM)

@Otaku I've tried that too with a few of them. I liked the soda flavored ones they had. Too bad they were limited. :(

@  Otaku : (15 July 2018 - 03:48 PM)

@D Immortalis Most Pop-Tarts I like are better eaten frozen... and the only reason I started doing that is because Pop-Tarts commercials told me to try them that way. XD

@  D Immortalis : (15 July 2018 - 03:03 PM)

woohoo, just got my tickets to see From Ashes To New and Hollywood Undead on the 26th!

@  wonko the sane? : (15 July 2018 - 06:32 AM)

That's basically what happened to me. I was on that aisle for completely other reasons, caught sight of them in my peripheral, and then... just couldn't stop thinking about them.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2018 - 02:47 AM)

Hungry for pop tarts now - haven't had those in years

@  D Immortalis : (15 July 2018 - 12:32 AM)

anyone that doesnt put theit pop tarts in a toaster is a heretic.

@  unluckiness : (15 July 2018 - 12:32 AM)

Do they still make the cinnamon-brown sugar ones?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2018 - 09:03 PM)

Yup. And?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 08:29 PM)

Aren't Pop Tarts like, totally junk for you by the definition of the word?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Four IS standard... but it's been so long I had forgotten.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 10:22 AM)

Well, some people are into shopping, anyway.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 10:22 AM)

Taiwanese Costco also has lots of things that shoppers would want!

@  unluckiness : (14 July 2018 - 10:18 AM)

The Taiwan Costco I visited once was nice but I have to question why our guide thought it'd be a good place to bring tourists.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2018 - 09:40 AM)

Lower prices, lower taxes, bigger selection... yeah, I can see that happening.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 09:14 AM)

Didn't a Washington Costco make the news a couple years ago for being sheerly flooded with customers from British Columbia?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 July 2018 - 01:25 AM)

That's cool. There's a Sam's Club in Niagara Falls, where I tend to cross the border, but I've never been in. I'm a Costco member, but not Sam's Club; and unfortunately Costco makes sure there aren't any locations in the US too near the Canadian border

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 07:02 PM)

Nope, not the battle damaged version. He got it from his cousin, whose family has a camping ground in... I wanna say new york state, but I'm probably wrong. Just across the border anyway.

@  Nevermore : (13 July 2018 - 06:36 PM)

Sam's Club exclusive was the battle damaged version, right?

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 July 2018 - 06:34 PM)

He's got friends on the other side.

@  TM2-Megatron : (13 July 2018 - 06:08 PM)

where'd your nephew get a US retailer exclusive

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 04:39 PM)

Alright, I managed to identify him. The 2007 voyager class that was apparently exclusive to sam's club.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 04:20 PM)

Well, that was a nice surprise. Me nephew (the 10 year old.) just gave me an optimus prime that's minorly older than he is.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 10:25 AM)

Nah, even better. He'll be a memory of the mission briefing. Just a voice over. Four different figures in the toyline, but not actually in the movie.

@  unluckiness : (13 July 2018 - 10:06 AM)

I am 110% sure that Optimus will show up, even as a transmission or something. At least maybe we can get a cybertronian form this time.

@  Pennpenn : (13 July 2018 - 09:55 AM)

At least one Optimus sodding Prime.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 06:57 AM)

Same way as always: completely unrelated figures and models that weren't even in the movie.

@  unluckiness : (12 July 2018 - 11:47 PM)

I think that's a given, though, given the small number of transformers in Bee Movie, I wonder how they'll fill the toyline

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 July 2018 - 02:07 PM)

Yeah. I'm hoping with the new film, we might get something closer to the deluxe range

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 July 2018 - 01:20 PM)

Isn't the Masterpiece the only recent VW G1-looking Bee?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 July 2018 - 11:02 AM)

Especially when they are questioned directly and respond by dodging the question.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 July 2018 - 11:01 AM)

Watching hypocrites parade their high ground is equally amusing and cringeworthy.

Nah, it's after Elonia's been munched.

Despite Q'b and Nikomi being shown with them just beforehand, only Prim and Dragon-Guy-Who's-Not-Maur-Apparently are shown getting vaporised on panel, so I guess that's the justification for the others surviving.

Also, the red guy is a Marvel Spaceknight, Plor the Pulsar! (And the whole thing is an homage to the 1983 Rom Annual.)

Ooo. Season 1 Megatron and Transmetal 2 Megatron are separate individuals. I dig the (presumably unintentional) parallel with Primal and Optimal from Beast Wars: Uprising.

Oh, and hahaha! Meanwhile over in OP #20, Thunderhoof and Steeljaw are Maximals just as they were Maximals in Uprising continuity!

I wonder if well get a focus on each of the expanded universe groups - joes, action man, visionaries, micronauts and Mask.

Yeah, we're getting backup strips for a bunch of the franchises. Joe and Micronauts are confirmed, I believe, and Action Man seems like a safe bet given how much Barber loves him. I wouldn't be surprised if MASK is skipped, considering the group doesn't actually exist anymore in-universe.

Although on that note, a four-page backup strip and a two-page interview really doesn't feel like much in terms of justifying the $5 cover price, especially when we got a four-page backup in every First Strike issue for a standard $4 price...

Here's my problem though. why? Why Maximals? The Autobot/Decepticon alliance appears to have nothing that can stop an evil planet, so why bother? It would be one thing if the Maximals were running interference against Brainstorm-level weaponry or an army of Phase Sixers but instead it seems like everyone is just fighting to fight.

It would be one thing if the Maximals were running interference against Brainstorm-level weaponry or an army of Phase Sixers but instead it seems like everyone is just fighting to fight.

 

Running interference so the Alliance doesn't have time to figure out how to stop Unicron makes sense. And it implies outright that there is a way to stop Unicron. Also with Milne on art it gets to be visually interesting and impressive. That being said it isn't any less of a cliche'd means to shift the focus to Barber's pet characters for the big finale while everyone else gets cameo'd to death.

 

As for your spoiler: I didn't realize until I saw that panel that he never used the claws that way in the show. Which is weird considering how creative the writers usually were with kibble.

It's real weird that a Marvel Spaceknight appears in the backup (Plor, the red guy). It's part of the Rom Annual #2 homage, obviously, but I guess IDW must figure the lack of name and redesign gives them plausible deniability. (That, or Ryall and Messina snuck it in without anyone realising who it was.)

And really... its PLOR. Dude showed up in literally 1 story. Certainly easier to get away with Plor than Starshine or Terminator.
