Oh wait, figured it out. Doi...

@  Pennpenn : (19 February 2017 - 04:02 AM)

I'm kinda disappointed how they messed up Legion Bisk's hands so that his front wheels can't roll.

@  RichardT1977 : (19 February 2017 - 12:45 AM)

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

@  Paladin : (18 February 2017 - 09:39 PM)

https://twitter.com/autobase_aichi/status/833142409005391872 ....is that an MP DINOBOT teaser?!?!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 February 2017 - 09:35 PM)

Yeah, never seen a Titans Return Hot Rod

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

Or Hot Rod. D=

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

Wow, seriously? I don't think I've even seen him here. =(

@  Msol : (18 February 2017 - 07:50 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?

@  unluckiness : (18 February 2017 - 07:13 AM)

I think there was a premonition panel in the Devil's Due TF vs JOEs

@  Bass X0 : (18 February 2017 - 05:28 AM)

@  Sockie : (17 February 2017 - 10:07 PM)

TF vs G.I. Joe counts more than anything else.

@  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.

@  Rycochet : (17 February 2017 - 10:24 AM)

This is marvel dude. Spidey is explicitly a loner and wolverine is a key member of the other premiere marvel super hero team. I just blame bendis.

They're doing versions of Secret Invasion and Civil War in this show, aren't they? Perhaps they'll have a BuckyCap period.

Spider-man? A loner? Since when? Solo hero? Yes. Loner? The guy that has a long series of teaming up with EVERYONE? Even wanting to join the Fantastic Four shortly after he started? This is the team that has HULK. Now THERE is a loner. The guy that tries to smash most people because no one leaves him alone. Or does he not count because he's a founding member?

Didn't stop Beast from being an Avenger. Many Avengers have been on other teams before, or do they not count because that was pre-bendis?

Yeah, they are the Flagship characters of Marvel, the ones everyone know of before even getting movies. Much like Superman and Batman. So again, why shouldn't they be a part of the big superhero team? Don't tell me Spider-man is a loner when he's not; and even if you hold to that I'll point to you bigger loners that have been on the team. Don't tell me Wolverine can't be on the team because he's on another, and I';ll again show you people that have been mutli-teamed.

I never said I had anything against Wolvie and Spidey being a part of the Avengers, man. I'm all for it, but I wish Wolvie bough some of his X-Men teammates, namely Cyclops, Nightcrawler, Beast, Storm, Rogue, Shadowcat, Colossus, Jean Gray, Archangel, Gambit and Iceman with him icon-waspy.gif

I can say without a doubt that you really don't understand Spider-Man at all.
He tried to join the FF at the VERY beginning of his career. Before he started experiencing the hell that is being Spider-Man. He'll work with other heroes no problem but to be a part of a permanent team? No way. Do you know how many times he turned down membership in the Avengers?

Spidey keeps his mask on. He tries to keep his identity a secret. He keeps to himself as that's part of his pathos. When they did the New Avengers it annoyed me beyond reason to see Spidey and Wolvie there. And what did they do with them? Oh, make jokes about Wolverine being on a million teams and put Spidey in the background as strictly comic relief and just hanging around as if he doesn't have a hectic and stressful social life to keep up on which is one of the rather enormous reasons he isn't on a damn team.

No sir. He shouldn't be on a team just because he's well known. Not when it goes entirely against the grain of the character.

I can almost certainly say they are NOT putting every one of those characters onto the Avengers. They're probably just doing a bigass crossover episode where the Avengers muster up every hero they can find. Given how long the this season has been in production for, and given the presence of HIGHLIGHT to view:
Vision and Winter Soldier this probably takes place mid or even late season.

Hell, the Fantastic Four already cameo'd on the show like three times now. As did Wolverine during the WW2 episode. This isn't too uncommon.

QUOTE

I believe the point Database was making is that, in the show, the Hulk is a fairly stable member of the team now, and yet he has an extreme loner personality.

Yeah, Hulk is probably the biggest Loner hero in the Marvel Universe, yet here he is; a Staple of these Avengers. And its not just here, just about every Avengers re-imaging has the Hulk as a member in some compasitity. So even if 616 Hulk never rejoined (though was still a major player in the early issues with the Avengers trying to make sure he didn't hurt anyone, making him a key to the group staying together in their first few months. Hell, Its was through his teaming with Namor that lead Namor to finding Captain America in the next issue.) his other universe selves have played bigger roles in their respective teams.

I still don't see how if HULK can be a member, Hulk having just as good if not better reasons to be a loner, can be an Avenger; why Spidey can't. characterization doesn't remain static. Eventually he could start to see a team helping him could be a good thing, as he's not the only hero that has to put up with BS in both sides of his life. To act like his reasons are much better then others is foolish and I feel being ignorant due to favoritism.

Because one thing about the Hulk is change. He never stays the same. Depending on which HUlk you get you might have a great team member or your worst enemy. He's a malleable character which is one of the reason I don't care much for him.
Spidey isn't that malleable. once you start changing him you start making people like him less and less.

You really, REALLY don't get Peter Parker. You don't get why his stories were written the way they were.
Different character focus on different aspects in their stories, this is universal for ALL stories. That which makes Peter Parker special is the way he handles his personal life with the balance of being a reluctant hero. Putting him on a team craps all over what makes him special and the only thing you have left is the comic relief.

It's not surprising that Spidey was only put on the official Avengers roster when it became Earth's Most Popular Heroes.
