Stop making business sense! Your triggering my irrational hatred more!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 July 2017 - 10:49 PM)

We know why places ain't pre-ordering. Walmart wants "SNES Mini in stock!" In there adds to get people into the strores, and GameStop wants to hold systems back till production is over with to scalp them.

Wal-Mart? More like Off The Wall-Mart! Amiright?! *cries over canceled preorder*

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:39 PM)

And the Walmart debacle has no doubt pissed off a whole lot of people. What should be fun is turned into a harrowing experience by these kind of pathetic sales tactics

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:38 PM)

Nintendo is really starting to push fans' patience with this SNES classic thing. Why are preorders open someplaces overseas but not in North America?

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:03 PM)

Well anywho it's out in Canada and I grabbed mine. I couldn't find a thread so just as a warning: watch out when flipping the head out -- I scratched the paint off a bit while doing so. Very little clearance!

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:01 PM)

Is MPM-3 Bumblebee out in the US yet?

@  Daith : (26 July 2017 - 03:40 PM)

So all of us who thought we had our SNES Classic lined up friday night through Walmart.com just got flipped the bird.

I just hate Facebook.

@  Confuzor : (26 July 2017 - 01:25 AM)

I hate when follow a link to an article from Facebook it has all this extra junk in the address box, so if I want to copy/paste to send to my friends via text, I have to go hunt down the "permalink" so it's a more manageable size

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 08:52 PM)

*sigh* Yup.

@  Foffy : (24 July 2017 - 06:16 PM)

That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:34 PM)

I call bullshit on that

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 01:08 PM)

Read the article. Apparently too many comics sets off the machines due to the glossy pages messing up the X-ray

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:03 PM)

what possible justification could they have to ban books containing drawings?

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 12:56 PM)

Per the article, United appears to be the only airline, but there might be others.

@  Dracula : (24 July 2017 - 12:48 PM)

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

I'm something something years old and I have actually never shaved with anything other than electric

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

is it worth the trouble?

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

Why does a safety razor give a closer shave than an electric razor?

I don't know about Paladin, but I personally am fueled by the rage of fans who have a very specific idea of what a Transformers toyline should be.

Because he's an awesome design and they wanted to take another swing at it?
There's also the new Ironhide and Bumblebee molds. Not sure why Sideswipe is any more surprising.

They also recently made a new Ratchet mold and a new Optimus mold. Basically Autobot in the film that isn't an Arcee, one of the Twins, Jolt, or died permanently got a new mold.

Sideswipe is a bit of a nobody, though. I think it's great that he gets a new mold, but I'm a little surprised that Hasbro thought it was worth the effort. I doubt anyone would have complained if they'd just kept using the same old mold. It's not like anyone was expecting or anticipating a new mold for him, especially when he just got a HA toy.

He was in the film only briefly, but apparently he made just enough of an impression for him to sell toys though. The new mold Deluxe. Several repaints of the original mold. The first repaint in the Human Alliance line.

He must be selling well to earn all that!

He's going to be in TF3 as a convertible, so they probably made him with that in mind.

I would complain a little about whether Sideswipe warrants another mold, but we're getting so much we want this year, both old and new, that I really can't bring myself to be all that annoyed about it. I want the Japanese version of this, since it looks like the movie, but I think I'll miss the swords. Hopefully any improvements on the first version are significant, since I thought that was actually a great mold except for the feet.

I kinda wish Jolt would get a new mold, since the whips are not really good on the one we have. But thats not gonna happen since hes not in the next movie.

So Its nice to see Guys like Sideswipe get multiple molds.

There was a rights issue between Hasbro and another company about this make of car. If you notice the Sidearm Sideswipe vehicle mode its not 100% the Stinger. This is also why TF3s car is now a cab and has a spoiler.

I thought that was only about the RPM vehicle.

If what you say is true, how do you explain the Human Alliance Sideswipe redeco or "Hunters Rumble" Sideswipe?
