@  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.

@  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?

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 was recently reading Susp's well-crafted review of the recent Power Core Combiners Huffer & Caliburst two-pack and noticed that the pictures that he had posted showed a toy with a slight but very noticeable difference from mine. (Review here).

Those who have acquired PCC Huffer, this question: Does your Huffer sport a hood that is colored a brighter shade of orange than the orange used on the rest of the figure (like his) or does your Huffer's hood match the shade of orange used on the rest of the figure (like mine)?

Pics of your Huffer figures are appreciated, but not necessary, and a mention of which country you acquired the figure in as well as when you might have bought it would be very helpful. I'm just trying to piece together whether this variance was a standard running change (I acquired my Huffer about 3 months after Susp got his), an international-market variant (I bought mine in Canada) or a simple error (either version).

Thanks!

My Huffer's orange is homogeneous, and I'm in the US.
It was probably from the first patch that showed up in my area sometime last month.

My orange has a very distinctive bright orange hood that doesn't even try to match the rest of him.

I got him from TRU.com.

Near as I can tell, all of the initial release of Huffers in the US have the mismatched orange hood. My observation suggests this was corrected relatively quickly, though. What Huffer's I've seen in stores recently almost all show the matching hood as best I can tell.

Same here. I just thought it was an odd deco quirk. I might start checking out the Huffers in stock locally a little more closely since I'm having an issue with the locking tab on the cab/shoulders.

Weird, I like the extra splash of bright color that the mismatched orange hood provides. It always seemed deliberate to me, since it wasn't even close to the plastic color, and the character was originally bright orange. Seems a little too dull with the mustard colored hood.

Yeah, same. The molds colorscheme is much more boring in the 'corrected' configuration.
