@  unitremover : (22 February 2017 - 09:36 PM)

I haven't been up there in a while but one of the Walmarts around here still has AOE deluxes out. Some of the CVSs do too.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 February 2017 - 09:34 PM)

It's been the same thing in local stores for ages up here.

@  BlackMax : (22 February 2017 - 09:33 PM)

One near me is the same - I swear they have over forty Deluxes there, all from many months ago.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 07:43 PM)

my walmart finally filled those empty tr pegs. and of course its a mix of waves one and 2 (wave 1.5?)

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 February 2017 - 07:11 PM)

Got Highbrow, Skullcrusher, Scourge, and Chromedome for $5 a piece

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 February 2017 - 07:10 PM)

My Walmart had a Generations Rattrap hanging for the past 2 and a half years, and in trying to clearance it, inadvertently marked down the entire Generations Deluxe assortment.

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 February 2017 - 07:09 PM)

A shelf warmer's ultimate revenge: being around long enough that in trying to clearance it...the store marks down the entire SKU!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:59 AM)

Eh, he would've gotten beaten up if the government sent just about anyone.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:56 AM)

Regardless, literally everything I've ever seen (and a lot on tfwiki) attributes Megatron's slide into violence to Whirl beating him up while in custody. Maybe not like flicking a switch but Megatron's line "You made me. You taught me words were weightless without force" kinda spells it out.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I'm not sure if there even was a specific turning point, but he didn't seem kill happy yet when he was with Terminus, and that was after Whirl beating him up.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:24 AM)

It was also before any sort of uprising or him actually doing much of anything.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:20 AM)

I mean, the whole thing didn't start as "the great war". It was an uprising that eventually morphed into a the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:17 AM)

Yeah, of course it's before the war, Whirl beating Megatron while he was in custody was the tipping point that made Megatron turn violent.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 05:12 AM)

But the thing with Whirl was before he started the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 03:28 AM)

Like so many awful things in that universe, it's basically Whirl's fault.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 12:51 AM)

for about 10 minutes. then he got all kill happy

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 February 2017 - 10:27 PM)

Wouldn't IDW Megatron kind of count since his main reason for instigating the Great War was to overthrow the Functionist social order?

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)

Dr Who's sonic screwdriver 'invented' at Dundee University
QUOTE
Scientists claim to have invented their own version of Doctor Who's famous sonic screwdriver.

The Dundee University researchers have created a machine which uses ultrasound to lift and rotate a rubber disc floating in a cylinder of water.

It is said to be the first time ultrasound waves have been used to turn objects rather than simply push them.

The study could help make surgery using ultrasound techniques more precise, the physicists said.

Anyone listen to the various Audios from Big Finish or BBCAudio?

I finished on the BBC Audio first story with Tom Baker (Doctor 4) {Hornets Nest part 1} and found it somewhat weak...a lot of long passages of being narrated at about what happened in flashback. The big finish dramas are usualy more...dramatic.

We've listened to Hornet's Nest and Demon's Quest, and found both pretty lacking. Most of the other audio stories seem a lot better.

I've heard this coming season is a short season (Short to our American eyes, anyway) in order to stockpile the budget for the 50th Anniversary, so if that's the case it would make sense if they were already deep in the planning stages.

Not to mention it's the 50th Anniversary - I'd expect all the stops to be pulled down and guest stars aplenty to be had.

Same number of episodes as in the past. Will start in the fall and run the Christmas episode, believe it or not, on Christmas Day. Then the rest will be in the spring. 6 in a row than 8.

Rory and Amy will leave just before the Christmas episode (episode 5?>) Then Jenna-Louise Coleman will make her appearance as the new companion in the Christmas episode.

So no shorter season, no stock piling money. The only rumor that has been acknowledged is that there will be no multi part episodes, just stand alone.

The same series of posters included HIGHLIGHT to view:
the Eighth, Ninth and Tenth Doctors, as well, so I'm certain all the stops are to be pulled no matter what.

Eccleston has been pretty clear about not wanting to return, so I'd guess he's out, besides archive shots. McGann has been adamant about coming back and even had a new outfit designed (with Sonic Screwdriver). It would be awesome to at least 8s final moments before regenerating into 9. Tennant is definitely ok with coming back last I read.

Trial is worth going through to the end, at least once. Trust me. You want to be there as we lead into the final part.

@BigFinish: I am a HUGE fan of Big Finish, but budget forced me to cut them a few years ago, so I am woefully behind except on the BBC4 8th Doctor (Paul McGann being one of my favorite Doctor's after all). I have heard mixed reviews of Tom's return, mainly since his voice has drastically aged, which makes things feel off for a lot of fans. Do yourself a favor and acquire any of the following to see how good Audio Who can be:
5: The Kingmaker, Key2Time series, and any of the Turlough ones, Excelis Dawns, Omega
6: The One Doctor, Arrangements for War, Real Time, The Wormery, Jubilee, Davros, Actually almost any of his.
7: Fires of Vulcan, Bang-Bang-a-Boom, The Reaping,
8: Chimes at Midnight, Seasons of Fear, Neverland, Zagreus (40th anniversary special), The Next Life, and the entire Lucie Miller arc (BBC4 Radio)
Side stories: the original Dalek Empire arc, Kaldor City (Not by BF, but so hugging good), and the UNIT stores were fun.
Unbound (New actors/What if's): Any of this subline is worth hearing with actors like David Warner and Aribella Wier as the Doctor.


@50th Anniversary: While I am sure we are going to go for a HUGE anniversary episode, there are some hard truths to face: Eccleston wants nothing to do with Who anymore, Colin and Tom Baker have both aged badly (While 5, 7 and 8 can still pull it off), and no matter what we could wish for, The Brig and Sarah Jane are gone icon-screamer.gif icon-screamer.gif icon-screamer.gif

Still. Last I heard, the 50th was meant to be an independent special next year, not part of the upcoming series at all, or at very least, part of the NEXT one after this upcoming one.

Indeed. I don't think there's any way in hell Eccleston would return, because he has expressed a lot of somewhat vague disappointment with aspects of the production during his brief tenure.

I still think it would be interesting if they used Benedict Cumberbatch as the 4th Doctor, his take on Sherlock reminds me a lot of Baker's Doctor. Have Tom in some other role if he is up for taking part in another special.
