if po tarts dont POP then they become a lie.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2018 - 05:10 PM)

I typically just went for the traditional flavours... I think mostly Rasberry or Strawberry. I'll have to pick up a box next time I'm out

@  MEDdMI : (15 July 2018 - 04:09 PM)

@Otaku I've tried that too with a few of them. I liked the soda flavored ones they had. Too bad they were limited. :(

@  Otaku : (15 July 2018 - 03:48 PM)

@D Immortalis Most Pop-Tarts I like are better eaten frozen... and the only reason I started doing that is because Pop-Tarts commercials told me to try them that way. XD

@  D Immortalis : (15 July 2018 - 03:03 PM)

That's basically what happened to me. I was on that aisle for completely other reasons, caught sight of them in my peripheral, and then... just couldn't stop thinking about them.

Yup. And?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 10:22 AM)

Well, some people are into shopping, anyway.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 10:22 AM)

Taiwanese Costco also has lots of things that shoppers would want!

@  unluckiness : (14 July 2018 - 10:18 AM)

The Taiwan Costco I visited once was nice but I have to question why our guide thought it'd be a good place to bring tourists.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2018 - 09:40 AM)

Lower prices, lower taxes, bigger selection... yeah, I can see that happening.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 09:14 AM)

Didn't a Washington Costco make the news a couple years ago for being sheerly flooded with customers from British Columbia?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 July 2018 - 01:25 AM)

That's cool. There's a Sam's Club in Niagara Falls, where I tend to cross the border, but I've never been in. I'm a Costco member, but not Sam's Club; and unfortunately Costco makes sure there aren't any locations in the US too near the Canadian border

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 07:02 PM)

Nope, not the battle damaged version. He got it from his cousin, whose family has a camping ground in... I wanna say new york state, but I'm probably wrong. Just across the border anyway.

@  Nevermore : (13 July 2018 - 06:36 PM)

Sam's Club exclusive was the battle damaged version, right?

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 July 2018 - 06:34 PM)

He's got friends on the other side.

@  TM2-Megatron : (13 July 2018 - 06:08 PM)

where'd your nephew get a US retailer exclusive

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 04:39 PM)

Alright, I managed to identify him. The 2007 voyager class that was apparently exclusive to sam's club.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 04:20 PM)

Well, that was a nice surprise. Me nephew (the 10 year old.) just gave me an optimus prime that's minorly older than he is.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 10:25 AM)

Nah, even better. He'll be a memory of the mission briefing. Just a voice over. Four different figures in the toyline, but not actually in the movie.

@  unluckiness : (13 July 2018 - 10:06 AM)

I am 110% sure that Optimus will show up, even as a transmission or something. At least maybe we can get a cybertronian form this time.

@  Pennpenn : (13 July 2018 - 09:55 AM)

At least one Optimus sodding Prime.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 06:57 AM)

Same way as always: completely unrelated figures and models that weren't even in the movie.

@  unluckiness : (12 July 2018 - 11:47 PM)

I think that's a given, though, given the small number of transformers in Bee Movie, I wonder how they'll fill the toyline

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 July 2018 - 02:07 PM)

Yeah. I'm hoping with the new film, we might get something closer to the deluxe range

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 July 2018 - 01:20 PM)

Isn't the Masterpiece the only recent VW G1-looking Bee?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 July 2018 - 11:02 AM)

Especially when they are questioned directly and respond by dodging the question.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 July 2018 - 11:01 AM)

Watching hypocrites parade their high ground is equally amusing and cringeworthy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 July 2018 - 10:47 AM)

My big hope is that we end up with a Volkswagen Bumblebee two pack featuring robot modes from the new film AND G1

@  unluckiness : (12 July 2018 - 03:24 AM)

Lockdown has pinned tires. It's been a while

@  Telly : (11 July 2018 - 04:44 PM)

maybe a slurpee DID kick his dog! we just dont know

@  wonko the sane? : (11 July 2018 - 04:27 PM)

You could maybe add a smiley or something? At least make it not sound like a slurpee kicked your dog.

@  Paladin : (11 July 2018 - 08:21 AM)

oh right; it's Free Slurpee Day again.

@  Telly : (10 July 2018 - 11:04 AM)

brawl is one of the few movie designs i actually like

@  unluckiness : (10 July 2018 - 03:17 AM)

Studio Series Brawl is great aside from the annoying ball jointed cow-catcher bra halves

@  unluckiness : (09 July 2018 - 08:17 PM)

Yeah changeable faceplates are an MP thing

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 July 2018 - 05:23 PM)

The skull face would be added to the mold for later optional uses. It will then never be used.

Just to make sure: Trivia notes regarding specific toys on a character's page (or the character's toy page) such as design changes, foreign variants that still technically qualify as the "same" release, errors on the packaging etc. belong in the specific toy's writeup (provided it's not already overtly long) rather than down in the "notes" section, yes?
"'[Foreigners] at least need to be able to speak proper German.' Okay, what the hell is that supposed to be? Proper German'? Where do they speak that? Have you ever been there? Are you German? Can you engage in a conversation in a Swabian pub? Most people from Cologne already fail at asking for directions in the Eifel region."

For those of you who have PCCs and still have the packaging, could you take a look at the mini-cons depicted in the photos?

The Wiki reflects that Steelshot's mini-con was in completely different colors from what was pictured.

Thing is, after picking up Icepick on Black Friday and Windburn on Cyber Monday, I've noted that their mini-cons are also different colors on the packaging: Icepick's package shows his mini-con as being a purple when he's really blue, and Windburn's package shows his mini-con as being yellow when he's really green.

I'll likely run those updates with the next back of pages I create (I've got a little bit of seasonal merch to input when I find the time; I have a research paper I need to do), but since I only have a handful of dudes (Searchlight, Sledge, Steelshot, Windburn, Grimstone, and Steamhammer), I don't have a lot of package artwork to reference.

Thanks.

Those have already been noted on the Mini-Cons' pages, months ago. They do not need to be added to the larger characters' pages.

Ditto. Sometimes I get through fine, but it mostly lags. It's causing problems when two people edit the same page at once; the latest edit overwrites the earlier without warning.

Yes, its been PAINFULLY slow over the last week or so. It's especially killing me when I want to make multiple, rapid-fire edits like the Energon pages I'm working on, but instead it's taking several minutes at a time to update a single page.

Originally, the Wikia version was the only one, and all the people currently at TFWiki were there instead. Then this jive happened, and we got sick of it and decided to leave, exporting all the content and setting it up at TFWiki.

A few people have kept stubbornly updating at the old location anyway because they're silly, but they can't keep up at all--you'll notice that while they're nearly identical at a glance, closer inspection will reveal that TFWiki's coverage of nearly everything is superior, especially things that are more recent (for instance, Wikia has no page at all for either of the last two BotCons).

tl;dr TFWiki.net is the real wiki, the other one is leftovers.
