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?

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

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

@  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

Yes. Bambi has a whole movie dedicated to the other. But it was just kinda striking to me.

Episode was kinda "meh" with me. Nice to get the origin of the Thunderkittens, but what I want more than anything is to see them utuilizing more of their bags or tricks in battle.

Anyway, it was satisfying to finally see Cheetara lose her cool, or at least come really darn close to it.

"I think they want us to fight to the death." is my new favorite line from this show.

Yeah, that was a nice moment.

They shouldn't have let the kittens watch the Hunger Games.

What I especially liked is that this episode is basically simultaneous with the previous one. Nice bit of continuity/timing.

It occurs to me that, if we ever see the kittens' family again, they might not get a warm welcome. That's if they're still there. I shudder to think what could happen to those outlying homesteads now that Thundera itself is gone. And with people like Atticus and Kaynar out there. . .

Was the tornado that killed the Thunderkittens' father the same one from the Panthro origin episode and the Petlar episode?

Nice nod of continuity, if so.

Tornado shouldn't have killed pops if pops had half a brain.

Instead of wasting time trying to run in the same path as the twister, and try to climb over a thick tree trunk, he should just have run to the left or right of the path, so he's no longer in the funnel's path.

...oh right, cartoon, drama, lol.

Also:

The kid's family brings a large plot hole to the show. If they really existed prior to the kids going to Thundera, how come the kids never once asked to visit their old home to make sure their family is okay and take them with them (or find a safe spot for them), or gone to bury them, if the reptiles killed them on the way to Thundera.

I mean, it seems that the family home was a very long way away from Thundera, so there's a good chance they survived the invasion.

It's a good question, but not a plot hole. Even when this week's plot stirred up the memories in them, they still didn't share the story with Panthro and Cheetarah. They don't want to talk about it.

And maybe their home is in the opposite direction from the Tower of Omens and they've never been anywhere close to it since.

You don't live anywhere near Tornado Alley, do you? Tornadoes don't simply travel in straight lines. They swerve, they jump, they change speeds and directions, etc. Trying to guess where a tornado is going and simply moving someplace else isn't just stupid, it's suicidal. The ONLY reasonable survival tactic is to get to the nearest shelter as fast as possible. That's what he was trying to do. No unnecessary cartoon drama here.

I am rather disappointed thus far that they haven't done anything about the refugee/survivor issue. At least they could do some lip-service to how others escaped or were all hunted to extinction or something. I dislike the implication that there's been a full blown holocaust without addressing it directly, but that's just me really.

I did like that the kids have other siblings out there though. At least in theory.

I agree that you can't predict the path of the storm, but on the other hand he could certainly ran around the tree rather than trying to climb it.

While you can't predict the path of the storm, you can hedge your bets on getting out of the IMMEDIATE PATH of it, then hunkering down somewhere safe when you're not going to get tornado-nabbed. The kid's dad should have moved out of the obvious, immediate path of the storm by going off to one of the two sides of it, then finding safety.

Looks like this week's episode deals with that. Also introduces us to a long awaited character!
