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.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 July 2017 - 10:47 PM)

When The Revolution Comes, They'll Be The First Against The Wall-Mart

@  D Buster Prime : (26 July 2017 - 06:20 PM)

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)

Like anyone needed another reason not to fly United

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 10:16 AM)

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

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?

@  RichardT1977 : (24 July 2017 - 10:08 AM)

Nevermore That was Shrapnel, not Bombshell.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:07 AM)

Deluxe Sludge alone is enough that I probably won't have to eat anything until 2025.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:06 AM)

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.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 July 2017 - 09:23 AM)

What do you mean too good? I don't recall lots of Micromaster updates.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 09:06 AM)

i remain unconvinced. "if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is."

At least in Canada, they have excellent customer service.

@  Maruten : (23 July 2017 - 11:33 PM)

@  Telly : (23 July 2017 - 11:19 PM)

I'd love for this new color scheme to join Saidos and Cyb Backstop on my shelf!

Call me if they make him Stranglehold or something at least, the mold isn't really good enough to bother with in new colors that are just "okay". Looks like a lost movie 1 Target redeco scout.

Shame they couldn't come up with something for the other two. I don't get what the fixation is with releasing TF Cybertron scouts in multiple venues, unchanged.

They're not in Generations. They don't say "Generations" on them.

About time Backstop got a redeco. Though I'm surprised that he's the only one of these in new colors.

The Backstop repaint looks good.
These are the same molds that were released unchanged for Universe 2.0.
I wonder why Hasbro would recolor only one of them.

Hasbro tends to use scouts as exclusives for the smaller stores and Cybertron was the last TF toyline to have decent scouts. Hasbro leaves them unchanged just to save money.

Yeah, Wreckloose hasn't seen release in a really long time.

Sure wasn't. The Wal-Mart trio were (and remain at some stores, a shame at two bucks a whack) Backstop, Brakedown, and Brushguard. This new wave also has some blue Jungle Planet Cyber Keys, so that's a little different too.

Yeah one of my local WalMarts found a stash of their last release (backstop, brakedown, brushguard in 25th anniversary packaging) and put them on the pegs for 2 bucks a pop.

What... ARE these?

I mean, they aren't gold, so not RTS, but Generations doesn't have Scouts and they don't say "Generations" on them like the Deluxes, so...

Maybe a new Universe-style release for Dollar General and the like, this time with a repaint and a "new" figure?
