@  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.

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)

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

@  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?

I just, don't see how anyone can be seen as annoying or frusterating enough for that need. I guess it's just me.

I've lived my whole life knowing I had flaws, and it made me accept that people will have opinions I don't like.

Well, like I said, for me at least, it's a lot more than just "opinions I don't like". Usually if I block someone, it's because they frequently insult me or otherwise behave like a jerkass. (Key word being "frequently". I have a whole three people on my block list, at least two of which I know also have me blocked, so it works out well.)

Because when it comes to disagreeing, I have several posters on this board and elsewhere I like just fine despite rarely ever agreeing with them, and I know at least some of them also like me just fine. I don't have issues with anyone who pays attention to what I'm saying, doesn't insult me, and doesn't treat me like I'm an idiot who doesn't know anything, and those people rarely have issues with me.

As for people blocking me, considering the above paragraph, *shrugs a little*

The Idea is it's there and you can use it if you want to or not. Some feel the need to use it. Some feel they don't need to. It's really up to you. And yes some people do need to be put on ignore, because some people just come on the boards to troll and bait. Usually the staff takes care of them in a timely manner and then the block is no longer needed. I use to use mine for damn bots that would come on and spam the boards, but since there hasn't been an instance of that in a long time, my block list is empty, even though I disagree with alot of people on here alot.....

I see announcing that you're blocking a poster as a way of pointing out to the community and that poster that you find something about that poster to be unacceptable...it's a call for others to do the same. If everyone did that, those posters would go away, because no one would bother responding to their inane threads. That, or the poster might (unlikely though it is, looking at the trolls here) change their ways when they find out others have blocked them for one reason or another.

The thing is, that assumes that if someone bugs you, they also bug everyone else. Which may or may not actually be the case.

And if I thought someone genuinely was bad enough that I felt from an objective standpoint that they shouldn't be allowed to post at all, I would report that to a mod, not make a call to scapegoat someone.

Inquiry: What is the maximum number of blocked users that a single allspark profile can support?

before you have to make an alt account to block the rest of the people, but that'd just be silly.

Stupidity is universal. If it annoys one person, chances are it does annoy most other people.

Sadly, the staff allows some trolls to continue posting under a mistaken concept of tolerance. I can name several people here who, because of their arrogance, condescension, or just plain idiocy and incoherence, shouldn't be allowed to post. I've reported them before, but nothing has been done. Since the staff hasn't done anything about them, it's up to the community itself to deal with them.

All I can say is, the Allspark's been so much more soothing since I blocked everyone and just go around closing threads at random every once in a while so it looks like I'm paying attention.

The only people I have blocked are some of the anti-live-action movie crazies who came out of the woodwork in 07. I don't even really remember what they said, just that it was mind-numbing. I don't mean people who merely dislike the movie(s)...the really nutsoid ones are the ones I'm talking about, who ended up being banned anyway.

Now Kalidor, you know that's not true.

It's San Holo, the answer to your question is simple. You will be able to use the ignore feature on a particular staff members the moment a staff member is able to use the ignore feature on asinine users who annoy the hell out of them and who appear to only be around to instigate and aggravate other users. That is to say.....when he/she is no longer a staff member.

I might be going a bit further than Kal would prefer here....and if I do, he'll let me know. But....

We as a staff are rather proud of the community we've got here. We also take great care and respect in the way in which we enforce our TOS. We strive to make sure the rules are applied as fairly as possible in all cases and are not applied subjectively because of our like or dislike for a particular poster. That protects unpopular bungholes who annoy people but stay within the rules...and it also protects the bungholes who take unnecessary pot shots at the staff as well. Sometimes those people are one in the same. We follow our guidelines at times to a fault. We aren't perfect...but we very earnestly try.

So I'm going to say this without any sugar coating. If someone doesn't like the way Kalidor has set up this community and the way he and the staff runs it, they know where the door is. they don't have to come here. If they find some value in this community that they can't appear to live without....then be a positive contributor to the community. We don't promise they'll like everyone here. We don't promise they'll like everyone on staff. But we do ask that if they choose to come to this site they extend respect to those post here....including the staff. If they feel they have been wronged, report it. Even if it is a staff member. We'll deal with any report as we always do; by staff consensus. We can't promise they'll always agree with our decisions. What we can promise is that each and every report is discussed and considered with the rules in mind and the spirit of a good community at the heart of that decision making process.

We value all our community members. Even the ones we don't personally like. If we didn't....we'd just get rid of them and have our own little clique. But that isn't what the Allspark is about and that isn't how we operate.
