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.

@  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)

@  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 like the title, it's simple and if Nolan has a specific theme in mind to conclude a character arc for Bruce then it fits as well. As soon as I read it this morning I thought that this probably implies to Bruce rising out of the darkness he was in at the end of the last movie. There is heavy speculation that Talia is the female lead that Nolan is busy casting at the moment. I'd love if Hugo Strange were included, I could see Tom Hardy playing a creepy/intellectual version of the psychiatrist, perhaps a cross between his Eames character from "Inception" and an intellectual.

Bane would be a fittingly ironic choice of villain, given the title of the film. He could use Azrael too, since he doesn't have "powers" per se (retcons notwithstanding) and fits well into a Bane story, as does Talia.

Ooh, Azrael might be good, and could totally work in the "realistic" universe Nolan's set up: group of religious uber-zealots have been training a weapon to combat, say, the League of Shadows: that weapon is Azrael and his target is Talia Head. Tom Hardy as Jean-Paul Valley, Milla Jovovich as Talia.

Emily Blunt would be my personal choice for Talia. I think she'll be young. The novelization mentioned her as attending University or something and was in correspondence with Ra's who was writing her about Bruce. It was rumored a few months ago that Blunt was being considered for Catwoman but those were proven false.

Ideally, I'd like Scarecrow to be back. Larger roll than The Dark Knight, but maybe not as big as Batman Begins. And then plant some hints that in this universe, he, as opposed to the Joker, would be Batman's main rival throughout their lives.

As for actual villain, with both Penguin and Riddler shot down, I can't see myself caring all that much for them.

As fang said:

Nothing is stopping Edward Nigma from being in the movie.

He could be a forensic detective that ends up going mad at the end of the movie as he's trying to track down the same villain that Batman is tracking down.



So at that point I'd have to ask, why would we want that? Assuming there's a vanishingly small chance of another Batman after this, at least with Nolan at the helm, why would we want the move to waste time on setting up a character that will never be realized?

I think the second movie did it perfectly well.

It set up Two Face and wrapped up his story in one nice, neat package. The second movie is effectively two movies intertwined.

I'm a huge Black Mask fan...I don't know why really, I just really love the guy...both of them...and while I don't think that Mask would be in the movie he's a possibility because of his mob role. With the decimation of the mob in "The Dark Knight" and their leadership being broken someone like him or the Penguin could step in and take control. I really do think we'll see Taila attempt to avenge her father while romancing Bruce, after all as Ra's told Bruce in the first movie "Ra's al Ghul used theatrics and deception as weapons as does his...daughter." (that is how I'd reveal her identity to Bruce.

For me I'd love to see Black Mask in the Mobster role. While Bats is trying to stop him (and step out of the wanted list that ended the 2nd film and the title hints at), I'd like to see the Riddler legitimately trying to figure out who he is but becoming more and more obsessed with it.

For the hired muscle or fight scenes we'd need I'd love Killer croc. He can be done realistically. He's a guy with a skin condition.

As much as it would be visually interesting to see Killer Croc in "The Dark Knight Rises" I really don't think that type of character is interesting to Nolan or fits into his Gotham City, even an reimagined Croc. I think that we can cross off all the more elaborate and over the top rouges like Mr. Freeze, etc. I think that Nolan already has a clear mind of the type of story that he wants to tell, this is one of the reasons why it's taken this long for things to get going on the project because he needed a break (reports from the previous production and even on Inception are that he has really intense shoots and gets stressed out) and required time to figure out a story that would be interesting. He stated after "The Dark Knight" came out that if they were to do the third film that they would not set out to top it.

The fact that we're going to be getting major "Dark Knight Rises" and "Superman" news over the next few months as we head into production for both movies has me salivating. 2012 is definitely going to be the year of the comic book film!!
