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

@  LBD "Nyt... : (18 February 2017 - 08:58 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?

@  LBD "Nyt... : (17 February 2017 - 08:52 PM)

Does that even count?

@  LBD "Nyt... : (17 February 2017 - 08:52 PM)

OH, that one.

@  Pennpenn : (17 February 2017 - 08:39 PM)

The most recent one, I think? I don't think Fort Max or Trypticon even appear in the earlier ones.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (17 February 2017 - 08:37 PM)

Which one was that?

@  unitremover : (17 February 2017 - 07:16 PM)

They did in the Scioli TF vs GI Joe

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 February 2017 - 05:37 PM)

Have Fortress Maximus and Trypticon ever fought each other before Titans Return?

@  Dekafox : (17 February 2017 - 05:20 PM)

Smart Brain? He's trying to take over the world through weaponized electronic accessories?

@  Msol : (17 February 2017 - 05:16 PM)

Reminds me of Smart Robin in a good way.

@  Msol : (17 February 2017 - 05:16 PM)

Oh man Triggerhappy is awesome.

@  Rycochet : (17 February 2017 - 11:30 AM)

I'm afraid to imagine what was done to it to turn it into bubble tea.

@  MEDdMI : (17 February 2017 - 11:04 AM)

You must have been feeding it. That's when it turns from sweet tea to bitter mutated chaotic tea.

@  Rycochet : (17 February 2017 - 11:00 AM)

I didn't know Tea could do that, I thought it just turned into a disgusting drink.

@  MEDdMI : (17 February 2017 - 10:59 AM)

They also multiply when they get wet. Don't feed them after midnight, either.

@  Rycochet : (17 February 2017 - 10:58 AM)

Don't get them wet otherwise you'll end up with a case of brownbelly.

@  MEDdMI : (17 February 2017 - 10:56 AM)

What about t-shirts made out of tea bags?

@  Rycochet : (17 February 2017 - 10:55 AM)

No, no, it's teens who need putting in airtight containers, tea you can leave anywhere.

@  MEDdMI : (17 February 2017 - 10:53 AM)

Tea is best stored in airtight containers, not china.

It would appear to be part of the "Transformers" line started in 2010 after "Hunt for the Decepticons", but with red packaging seen in Generations instead of the normal yellow.

I can understand the Scouts if they REDECO them, but just re-releasing them in new packaging? Very odd. Heck, why not redeco one of those as Iguanus and the other as a new Dinobot or something?

I can confirm as previously stated seeing these at a few Walmarts trying to sell for $2 each. I'm surprised they're trying to release them again.

Is Backstop transformed correctly on the package? His legs look sideways. Maybe he's a master of the side-step.

Yeah, If I had to classify them, I'd say that they're still "Transformers" despite being red instead of gold. I mean, I don't think anyone considers the Activators part of Generations just because of their red cards. Same for the four single-pack Mini-Cons (Although their original classification was "Generations" by some sites, I think most fans have backed off of that designation by now).

I actually understand Wreckloose and Undermine far more than Backstop. They're relatively cheap figures that still sell despite being released a bazillion times each. Why invest the time and money to redeco them at all? Family Dollar, Big Lots, and apparently even Walmart will just keep buying them anyway...

These exact releases? In the "Transformers"/"Generations" packaging? Or the ones released in Universe 2.0 packaging that each had their original decoes (including "correctly" colored keys, not the blue ones that the "Generations" ones have)?

If it's the latter instead of the former, I think pretty much everyone knows about those icon-arcee.gif

WHAT?

Thanks to these lines I got Undermine.(Who I wanted during Cybertron but could never find him.) I also got Backstomp for $2. I still feel like I got cheated for that one. My brother had Wreakloose, so I know I'm not getting him again. Since Backstomp is repainted, I have a feeling we're going to see these toys for a long time.

so, does this mean we need Undermine (2010), Backstop (2010), and Wreckloose (2010) wiki articles when these come out?

wreckloose hasn't come out since Cybertron, and Backstop is repainted. so, only Undermine is the same thing repeated.

I think tfw2005 also called the reissue Seacons "Generations" because they had a red box, like these and the Mini-Cons.

I see Backstop and Wreckloose have new blue Jungle Planet Cyberkeys. Did the Cyberkeys in the Universe release have the cyber code numbers on the back, even though the hasbro web site stopped supporting these ages ago?

Backstop's bio certainly seems like a new character. Are the bios for the other two available anywhere?

Sort of like how they released the blue Cybertron Clocker from Target for the 2007 movie, then they repackaged it for Walmart of "UNiverse Cybertron Series", so then technically it was the Cybertron character, not a movie character. One toy, but two releases in different continuitires? So messed up.

I have seven memories of him from Cybertron. Bless you Walmart, for clearancing them out at $1.50 each (rather $3 for a 2-pack, but whatevs).

*Edit* Every time I look at this Backstop, the more I want him. Why do I actually have to like that mold despite its countless flaws! icon-fire.gif

I just don't get why they keep re-releasing these molds, of all things. The robot modes for Backstop and Undermine are some of the worst in recent memory. Backstop is a squatty side-view of a rhino with extra legs, head and an arm growing out of its ass, and Undermine's robot mode actually has less functional arms and head than his alt mode. How does that even begin to make sense?
