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.

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.

@  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)

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

Did no one really post this yet?

TFW

Didn't see another thread for this, maybe I looked in the wrong place.

Anyway, it's all awesome. We have a full line of TFP CV toys...and all of them come with weapons. Some may not like that they're energon weapons, but I think it's cool and a nice throwback to TF:E.

Cliffjumper - legion. Red weapon that looks like a gun, but has an edge at the "barrel", so it might be a sword or gunsword. Cool transformation, and he looks to have both elbows and knees.

Bulkhead - maybe a legion? only one weapon, which seems to be the differentiator (the Commanders have 2 energon pieces). Anyway, he still looks pretty massive. His shoulders are clearly mistransformed. Weapon is a bit meh; blue, maybe some kind of blunt gun. Weird blue lightpiping in the hood. It ends up in front of the clear windshield to form his chest, so maybe it represents spark glow or something?

Car Eradicon - pretty cool, but has a cheaty transformation. Weird weapon, looks like a gun with a blade mounted in off to the side. Purple, though. Shown in car mode with what is clearly one of Optimus's swords.

Megatron - commander. It, honestly, doesn't look much different from the deluxe. Pretty impressive. Dark energon torso armor and sword. (his arm cannon is normal plastic).

Starscream - I think it's a commander, as he comes with 2 null-rayish guns. Pretty lithe, though.

Optimus - Looks better than the deluxe, I think. Shown with 2 of his guns (blue), but judging by the sword with the Eradicon, the second gun is probably from an extra Optimus and the actual toy likely comes with 1 sword and 1 gun. I can't really tell from the packaging pic. Edit; nevermind, the packaging pic says 2 cannons. Maybe a repaint comes with the sword?

Wheeljack's ship - looks a lot better here than in the SDCC mock ups. Lots of clear weapons, but I don't think they're removable. I'm a lot more prone to buy this now.

Oh, and BB in car mode has a light purple (not the same color as Megatron and Eradicon's stuff) buzzsaw on his car roof. Who does this go with? Maybe an unseen Airachnid?

I think I like these better than the large figures so far. I don't feel the need to own a lot of large Prime guys but a small (literally) army kinda appeals.

-ZacWilliam, and that Wheeljack is DEFINATELY joining my G1 Legends figures.

Pretty sure all the single-weapon toys are legion and the double-weapon toys are commanders.

There does seem to be less difference between their actual sizes, though; I think Bulkhead is a legion, but he doesn't look like he'd be much smaller than Optimus of Megatron. Starscream, on the other hand, looks pretty low mass, but has 2 weapons and is tall.

I'm loving that guys like WJ and the Eradicon are getting toys. I may not be buying the complete line of full-size toys, but I'll get all the CV stuff (with possible exceptions for playsets).

And, with all the stuff they're showing here, I've got pretty decent confidence that guys like Breakdown and Knock Out will get made too.

I'm pretty sure we heard at Botcon that Bulkhead's a Commander. The only guy I can remember being Legion offhand is Wheeljack.

As for size, check out the very first image. Megatron's way taller than Arcee.

Bee and the Eradicon are definitely legion. I could buy Bulkhead being commander; I was just sticking to this "one weapon = legion" schema in my head.

If there is a deluxe or voyager - then that is my prefered purchase. Only if they choose to make a figure cyberverse only will I pick it up.
