It was either the Bumblebee or Cliffjumper. Can't remember the colors.

@  Kalidor : (22 October 2020 - 06:43 PM)

What did it look like?

@  Donocropolis : (22 October 2020 - 01:34 PM)

I swear I remember getting the Happymeal G1 minibot as a child, but I live 2.5 hours from St. Louis, which is the only place they apparently came out. It's possible that I got it on a family vacation, though, as we went to Six Flags pretty often.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 October 2020 - 01:07 PM)

Conversely, I had the Gobot helicopter from Wendy's and I was absolutely convinced it was an actual Transformer.

@  Donocropolis : (22 October 2020 - 08:13 AM)

I used to rubber-band Hot-Wheels style construction vehicles together and pretend it was Devestator.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2020 - 05:26 PM)

When I was about four years old, my parents bought me Bugbite and tried to tell me it was Bumblebee. I was not yet a fan of Transformers, but I knew that wasn't Bumblebee. I didn't even have the real Bumblebee at that time.

It would come with two soundtracks: the eighties classic and one featuring dubstep and the VAs are popular Youtubers.

I just couldn't think of worse music than disco...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 11:35 AM)

What were you trying to imply with the mocking sarcasm, though? Nobody suggested that '80s music was any more "of it's time" than '70s music.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 11:18 AM)

I said that disco wouldn't fare much better with the same context: media is property of it's time; biases, culture and limitations are all inherent in that. Some stuff can be brought forward because of an inherently timeless nature or the simplicity with which it was made but lots of media is a time capsule of the period of when it was made.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 08:46 AM)

I'm not sure what you're trying to imply, or what you even think I said.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 08:11 AM)

Yeah, cause disco would make the transition so much better...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 07:17 AM)

I feel the '80s music would be jarring when running over current-day CGI instead of well, '80s visuals.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 05:39 AM)

Not a remake, reanimated scene for scene, like that fan vid titled they were always real to me.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 October 2020 - 04:37 AM)

Because we need more remakes these days.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 01:36 AM)

Be a hoot if these Studio Series 86 toys led to Transformers The Move Reanimated like Pokemon Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution.

Seems the area near my work place is due to be gentrified. Electric car ports, fifty pound haircuts and five pound bowls of cereal in breakfast cafes I'll bet.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 11:31 PM)

@ZakuConvoy Lumines Electric Symphony. So still halfway interesting, and it’ll play on the PS TV

@  Demovere Xeno : (19 October 2020 - 10:36 PM)

@Maximus: I paired the Battle Patrol with Ironworks and they look good together, though the Off Road Patrol would probably fit best as vehicles you're likely to find at a construction site.

@  ZakuConvoy : (19 October 2020 - 09:39 PM)

So...was it something like Tearaway or Gravity Rush or was it just a FIFA or a Madden?

@  wonko the sane? : (19 October 2020 - 08:26 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:09 AM)

My local Walmart FINALLY got a restock of Generations during the early September reset and got a big shipment of Earthrise wave 1 (the first I’d seen around here). IF, and that’s a big IF, they restock I’m expecting a bunch of wave 3. Or wave 2. But we’ll be skipping one of those waves.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:08 AM)

Barricade hanging around

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:08 AM)

Brunt barely appeared here at all, wave 3 was pretty much skipped for a big load of wave 4, with Impactor and

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Brunt is shelfwarming around me. One walmart moved the whole lot of them off to a side shelf, but couldn't be added to liquidate them.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2020 - 09:01 PM)

Ironworks is a plague. No idea if it was overproduced or if nobody wants it but thing's clogging shelves.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 October 2020 - 04:23 PM)

My walmart the few times I go in will be lucky to have two or three transformers period.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 October 2020 - 10:29 AM)

I mostly just see walls of Ironworks. And the occassional Siege Hound.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2020 - 08:44 AM)

condolences.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 08:40 AM)

My local Symths is still chock full of Earthrise wave 1.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 08:24 AM)

Yup, generally so much they don't bother with any other waves as the existing stock doesn't sell out.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

All the damn time.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

If there's anything there's going to be plenty of stock, it's wave 1.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

I'm really not worried about wave 1 of a new line EVER.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 07:47 AM)

At least you got listings for kingdom. walmart canada won't list them until they're actually in stock and that could very well never happen. I'm gonna get mine from BBTS cause I'm not missing out on the maximals.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:32 AM)

And I don't buy the "they all sold out" explanation. The Kingdom figures are still listed.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:32 AM)

I don't see any of Friday's reveals at Walmart.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:23 AM)

There's a difference between "sold out" and "no trace of a listing".

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:23 AM)

There is still a listing for the scalped and sold out Walmart exclusive limited edition version of Gigawatt.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:22 AM)

But there should still be a listing.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 October 2020 - 06:30 AM)

Probably got scalped and sold out in seconds.

What are some games that you sold for whatever reason (you really needed the money, you were bored with them) but later you regretted selling it so you bought it again?

When my Gamecubes memory card became corrupted, there were a bunch of games that I was like "well, that was fun, but I have no heart to play through all that again." So I sold off a bunch of my Gamecube games.

One of them was "Skies of Arcadia." I absolutely loved that game and was sorry I sold it off. So years later I rebought it from Gamestop (and boy oh boy did I ever have to hunt for it). Thing is, after I bought it back, I never played it again. It's just sitting there on my shelf.

Kind of the same thing happened with my PS3. The system bricked and I had to get it repaired. Once it was repaired, I had to format the hard drive. So there went all my save data. Again, heart broken and not feeling like going through all of that again, I sold off a bunch of games.

One was Elder Scrolls: Oblivion. I had Skyrim (and later bought it on PS4 and Switch). Why would I need Oblivion? But then time passed and I reeeeeally wanted to play Oblivion again. So I bought it off Amazon.

Another one was Kingdoms of Amalur. At first I was like, well it was a fun game, but I have Skyrim, I don't really need another game like it. But as time passed (and Ellen from Outside Xtra kept talking about it), I came to really miss Kingdoms of Amalur. Well, just a couple days ago, I found a whole bunch of copies at Disc Replay for $5. Hell yeah I bought it back! I know what I'm going to be doing for the foreseeable future.

Seriously, $5! I feel like I practically stole it!

How about a system? I sold and bought back no less then 4 Gamecubes

 

When the Cube launched I got a purple one when I got dissapointed with the line up of games trickeling out for it I sold it

When Mario Sunshine finally came out I bought a black one

When I was completely disappointed in Sunshine I sold it

When Soul Cal 2 came out with Link I bought another black one

 

Thats the only ones I can remember the reasons why in the end I ended up with a black one and about 15 games and a GBA player

I've only ever re purchased games when I'd sold there console as well. Had RE4 and REmake for the cube, and later purchased them digital.

The snes classic has a number of games I owned as a kid.

Probably a few other digital ones.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

That definitely counts. I only ever rebought the Gamecube because my first one's disc player stopped working. My first one was a platinum colored one. My second one was purple. Now if I feel like playing a Gamecube game I just use my Wii.

Nah! That's just double dipping. I do that all the time. You don't even wanna know how many copies I have (or have had) of: Zelda, Ocarina of time, Metroid, Final Fantasy VII, Dragon Quest I, Super Mario 1, Super Mario 2, Super Mario 3...

Dear heavens, I need a life!

I haven't bought them back, but I rather regret letting my wife sell my PS2 and the collection of games there-in. I had a small but rocking list (.hack trilogy, Final Fantasy 7-X2, Xenosaga, R.A.D. - Robot Alchemic Drive, Silent Hill 2).

 

But being honest with myself, I doubt I'd ever revisit any of them.

As far as games go I had very little regrets in selling games off

 

I have even sold internet gems like SNES Crono Trigger and Arc the Lad collection and Sega Musha

Only one I can think of that I sold was Totally Rad for the NES.

 

It's not the best game, but it's quirky enough that I began to regret selling it, so I decided to buy it back. The exact same copy from the store I sold it to.

 

Only other games I can think of that I re-purchased for the same system were games that I didn't sell, but were damaged or stolen.
