@  unitremover : (22 February 2017 - 09:36 PM)

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.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 February 2017 - 09:34 PM)

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.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 07:43 PM)

my walmart finally filled those empty tr pegs. and of course its a mix of waves one and 2 (wave 1.5?)

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 February 2017 - 07:11 PM)

Got Highbrow, Skullcrusher, Scourge, and Chromedome for $5 a piece

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 February 2017 - 07:10 PM)

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)

@  RC85747 : (22 February 2017 - 07:04 AM)

@  RC85747 : (22 February 2017 - 07:03 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)

@  RichardT1977 : (19 February 2017 - 12:45 AM)

One of the Walmarts near me has some pegs full of Wave 1 TR deluxes.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (18 February 2017 - 08:58 PM)

@  LBD "Nyt... : (18 February 2017 - 08:58 PM)

@  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)

Well, another month has come and gone. I wish I could say I got a lot done, but sadly, real life had a tendency to intervene. Still, enough was done, and I'm pleased to say that new stuff is either coming within the immediate future or very soon. Major details here.

Here's hoping that July will see a lot done! Meanwhile, stay tuned - new stuff is coming very soon!

As promised, a new thing, just in time for the (original) release date for the new film.

-

This is the story of an idealistic young Cybertronian, who fought on the streets to survive and saw friends pointlessly killed. This is the story of a vengeful Decepticon, whose hatred was quelled by wisdom and finally saw the darkness that he'd been blind to for far too long. This is the story of the angry young mech who grew into a calm and tranquil warrior, and found where he belonged. This is the story of how Deadlock died, and how Drift was reborn. All he needed was to be set Adrift.

My thanks to lonegamer7 for reviewing this story.

And we're back to re-edits. With luck, the next few parts will follow very shortly.

Reinforcements arrive for the Decepticons, simultaneously upping the ante in the war and forcing Hot Shot to confront a demon from his past. Confrontations have begun.

Well, last month had some productivity to it. That's a plus, yes?

Anyway, as announced on my DA page, I'll be taking a break from T:A-R during September (and maybe October) to focus my attention upon other projects, including editing that novel I have planned. So consider it very unlikely that I'll be posting anything of that nature for the next couple months, save maybe a re-edit. In any case, the details for what I've gotten done are here.

Well, here we are again. I wish I could say that the first month of my two-month break from my Transformers series has been as productive as I'd like, but unfortunately, it hasn't. Stuff's gotten done, but not nearly as much stuff as I'd hoped, and I doubt next month will be much different.

Not sure if anyone here is particularly interested, but as a small gift for everyone who's been following my work, I decided to post a small preview of some of the future installments on my DA page.

Echowarrior's DA: Arc Four Preview

Each section comes from the four installments for the fourth and final arc for my Armada series that I've either finished the rough drafts for (sections 1, 2 and 4 from "Phoenix Rising", "Underfoot", and "Yesteryear") or I'm simply starting on (section 3, with the tentative title of "X File"). Any comments and thoughts on these are welcome.

Anyway, here's the status for this month. Here's hoping work gets done.

Well, last month wasn't as productive as I'd hoped, but I did manage to get quite a bit of stuff done. This month, however, I'm focusing on one single project, so with luck, it'll either get finished, or I'll get really far along on it. Hoping for the former.

Oh, and do forgive the two links for this one; the old format was getting a little frustrating, so I split it into two journals. The first one has the account for my major writing projects, the second for my toy photos.

So yay, stuff's getting done! And with any luck, before the end of August, I'll not only have a lot done, but I'll have some extra cash and get a few bits and pieces done otherwise!

Here's hoping this month goes at least partially as well. I don't plan on working on my Transformers stuff, but I've got a few other irons in the fire and I plan on getting as much done with them before the end of the month as I can.
