@  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?

@  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?

Reminds me of Smart Robin in a good way.

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)

I thought all the tea was in china.

You're right, that's insanely clever. icon-ironhide.gif

But it is still a slim passing resemblance to Fort Max, mostly counting on the head, sword, and a few coincidentally similar colors (mainly in Cerebros and Highbrow) to sell it. We'd probably get even less (no sword, I'd assume) in a Hasbro take, and there's a decidedly different styling at work here. I just don't see it working.

...that said, if they made it I'd probably have to have it. icon-fire.gif

Oh yeah, you are right: the resemblance is only a passing one and it hinges on the items you pointed out. And like you, while its not what I want out of a new Fort Max, I'd buy it if it hit the shelves *lol*


Have the club do it for Botcon, cal him the forgotten Maximus combiner in a return to the UT universe. Hell they could use a re-purposed Tredshot in the comic as Sideswipe post Armada.

I was thinking who would make an appropriate repaint of the Thunderwing mold.

I would like to see a Shattered Glass Sky Shadow repaint in green, based upon the 2008 Mini-Con Sky Shadow.

SG Sky Shadow would be a Pretender (even though the toy isn't) and the Mini-Con is his inner robot form although it wouldn't come with the SG Sky Shadow toy.

Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.

Deluxe ROTF Starscream as either Ramjet or Sunstorm.

When you find yourself standing on the brink of surrender, know that many in the past faced trials such as your own, but overcame them with their great conviction.
No matter the greatness of your desperation, the failures of your efforts, or the injustice of your treatment, at least a few men have stared into the same challenges and emerged victorious from these tests.
Such men are not only a great source of inspiration, but also the very foundation upon which modern society rests.

There was also a custom Jhiaxus from Thunderwing. I imagine such a mold would work perfectly well for Hasbro should they decide to make an actual Jhiaxus.

I made one of these myself... doesn't look like I photographed it though. Originally I was going to keep the Thunderwing head but I found someone on TFW2005's Radicons who used PCC Huffer's combiner mode head (with the antennae cut off). I liked this look (more like the G2 comic) so I followed this example.

I don't know who to be mad at... Walky for making me want those, You for reminding me that the T.j.Maxx five minutes from here has at least one more Sky Shadow, or myself for knowing my toy reprinting skills are terribly below my own standards and still loving Pretender Starscream enough that I want to try.

Nobody said it had to be realistic so,

Cybertron Optimus Prime into a GaoGaiGar homage. With a bit of remolding and a lavish deco it could totally work.
