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)

Forgot this wasn't a search bar

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


@  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

@  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

Speculation and nothing more.

Comicon Hasbro panel: "Weird Al back in soundbooth", "product for season 3 under production". Comicon IDW Panel with Marty Isenberg: "Fall 2009".

Before that we had character designer guys blog with the preview square showing off Jetfire and Jetstorm (along with S2 guys like Swindle and Shockwave) wich are promised to pop up in S3. Guys at Botcon saw those, Arcee and Perceptor.

David Kaye confirming the BW story guys being involved in the season.

S3, while not say confirmed Cartoon Network airdate seems pretty friggin under production to me.

Wich doesn't mean you can't take these with a pinch of salt. I know nothing of this S250 fellow.
The Decepticons in a state of dissaray over half a universe is pretty ripe for shaking up the roster of the last two seasons anyhow.

In any case, even if many of these guys are cameos or background characters to beef up the toy isles this is PACKED.

you know
maybe the second team is sent as a replacement for op and crew
i mean, longarm is a prime now, and the autobots know that he's evil now, so he HAS to do something about them. but because they already agreed that they needed to maintain an autobot presence on earth, well then he'll have to send another team. which would explain why it's similar to the current team

i'd like to hear them explain the name rodimus prime though.

It'd be very cool to see the secondary team be the "villains" of Season 3, sent by Longarm, who has pinned Optimus as a traitor. A sub-plot of the decepticons amassing throughout the galaxy could lead up to a season finale featuring both Autobot teams.

Its very reminiscent of the Rodimus, Prowl and landmine team from Energon being at odds with Prime, Hotshot, Ironhide, Jetfire and Inferno isn't it?
This'll be good.

I wonder if they'll make Cyclonus a chick if they go the Shockwave-lackey route. Would be cool if she was a sterotypical playboy bunny-esque character containing hundreds of deadly weapons...and guns too.

Do you reckon Blackout will look a bit like Scourge (he was a bit beetle like with those wings) and be paired with Cyclonus? Or actually be a bettle and fit in with the Beasts?

RED ALERT! WOOWOOWOO! I'm so glad they aren't opposed to bringing back pre-production ideas for the show. Awesome.

C*******,big rabbit ears

Huh. Guess the "Animated and Universe don't overlap" rule is gone, unless this Cyclonus' only similar trait is the "ears".

RP,skinny,head looks like Kup

Rodimus Prime, with a head similar to the original G1 toy, I'm guessing?

St***a,very BM

Strika. Nice. Hoping for the big Jai Alai hands.

Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.

So far I am liking this new Character list. It will be good to see Brawn, Cyclonus, Rodimus Prime & Beachcomber back after there long absence.

Still I was hoping we saw the last of Hot Shot after the UT ended, Still I am really looking forward to Strika & Spittor appearing!
