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.

@  Evac : (26 July 2017 - 08:51 AM)

Same.

@  MEDdMI : (26 July 2017 - 05:15 AM)

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 - 12:22 PM)

so the weekend of SDCC, the TSA banned COMIC BOOKS from check-in luggage. http://lechicgeek.bo...ium=LCG FB Page

...did RichardT and Nevermore just accidentally do a Cybertron Enquirer gag?

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 10:52 AM)

Note I wrote "bombshell"in lowercase.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:17 AM)

in this case, face

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

depends what appendage its used on.

@  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."

@  General Tekno : (24 July 2017 - 08:58 AM)

yep - especially given that sure is one hyper easy forensic trail to find everyone involved in the leak

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 08:56 AM)

"How to lose your job spectacularly".

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 08:55 AM)

Holy cow.

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 08:55 AM)

Jesus, that Power of the Primes bombshell leak.

@  Fear or Courage : (24 July 2017 - 08:41 AM)

At least in Canada, they have excellent customer service.

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

I've ordered from them several times with no problems.

@  Telly : (23 July 2017 - 11:19 PM)

i havent. but ive only ordered from them a few times

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 July 2017 - 11:16 PM)

Has anyone here ever had trouble with orders from Tfsource before?

@  BlackMax : (23 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

Good track, but I prefer Paranoid. Is there any tune better for this board? "tell a joke and I will sigh, and you will laugh, and I will cry".

@  Evac : (23 July 2017 - 08:41 PM)

GEN'RALS GATHERED IN THEIR MASSES *GUITAR CHORD* JUST LIKE WITCHES AT BLACK MASSES

Once again, there is pain, I bring flame, I bring cold. I'm the blood red sandman, coming home.

@  Evac : (23 July 2017 - 06:26 PM)

Yo, when Team Skull meets you, they don't even greet you!

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 July 2017 - 06:23 PM)

Yooooooo

@  Evac : (23 July 2017 - 06:15 PM)

Yo.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 July 2017 - 06:14 PM)

Once more, I have returned. w00t.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 July 2017 - 02:01 PM)

Macross Delta sucks but I listen to the music anyway.

Transformers whose toys look better than the animation model

A lot of fans seem to prefer the animation models of certain G1 charcters to their toys. The main examples being Ironhide, Ratchet, Swindle, Galvatron, Reflector and the Seekers.

To this end, most of us clamour for the likes of the Classics Seekers and Jetfire to mention a few. Trust me, I love my Encore Ironhide and Ratchet since I got the custom clip on heads and the reissue Anime Bumblebee from a few years back.

However, to me some Transformers actually look better in toy form. My examples are as follows:

Menasor

Motormaster (I hate his bland, boring animation model's head)

Dead End

Dragstrip (I'm actually 50/0 on this one)

Ultra Magnus

Hot Spot

High Brow

So what do you guys think?

All the G1 Autobot Targetmasters looked a hell of a lot better than their animation models. Particularly Pointblank.

Animated Safeguard, just the combined robot mode.

The Rebirth models or the Headmaster models?

Rebirth models, since the Headmaster models basically are the toys. But the difference right there kind of makes my point.

95% of the Animated toy line (there's the obvious ugly ones like Blitzwing and Cybertronian Megatron)

Total agreement there. (Althought, I might notch it a bit back from 95%.) The animation models weren't all that specific on some of their points & didn't really depend on really being 3D. The toys did a good job of representing the characters to the best of their ability, while also fixing the shortcomings of the animation model.

So yeah, in general, the toys were better than the show models.
