@  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.

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?

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:05 PM)

(I haven't read IDW at all please don't sue me)

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:04 PM)

Interestingly, Skyshadow still shows up in the "new to hts" section but Junkheap doesn't.

And they put some SWTFs in the "new" section. Which is odd as most of them are ancient... mind you may still be in current waves... it astonishes me how Star Wars can get away with offering (what seems to me to be) the same exact figures for years straight.

True. I haven't seen those in stores yet myself but I don't really look for them either... I think they were technically released some time ago.

I might be missing something, but it looks like HTS has removed the listings for individual Prime deluxe figures (except of course for Bumblebee). If this is the way of the future - their selling full cases only - that really sucks.

There's now a 20% off sale on "most items" sort of thing, through April 1.

http://www.hasbrotoy...g-savings-event

I don't think there's a coupon code, it just puts the savings on automatically. Not that it should be surprising, but I don't think the discount is good for the NYCC Prime Bumblebee/Arcee pack.

Well... That's a load of Bumblejive. No one, not even a kid is going to want 3 slagging bees. Even with that code, I can't bring myself to pay 80 for 3 damn deluxes, which sucks seeing as this may be the only way to get them ever.

There are MANY ways to get them, its just that not all of them are cost-effective. Hell, with the way TRU's prices are going, getting them at retail has ceased to become cost-effective. Price will push me out of this hobby long before distribution and case-blowouts will.

HTS now has Prime deluxe wave 3 listed but out of stock (by the case, unfortunately) as well as Voyager Starscream.

Edit: I thought my wave 3 case shipped but it didn't yet. It was something else I had in the same order.

I imagine that a single child wouldn't be too interested in having three of the same Bumblebee. Although, he or she might use them as gifts or something.

I forgot that spaghetti was a pasta really.
