We don't need a magic wand to make the national debt grow, thanks very much.

@  RichardT1977 : (23 January 2017 - 05:33 PM)

Yamcha would be a better President than Trump...

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 January 2017 - 03:06 PM)

Damning with faint praise there.

@  Bass X0 : (23 January 2017 - 03:06 PM)

Kodos would be a better president than Trump.

*whipcrack*

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 January 2017 - 02:23 PM)

Don't blame me! I voted for Kodos!

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 January 2017 - 10:01 AM)

No, all the evils people voted for in 2016 were known.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 09:35 AM)

Didn't people have enough of voting for unknown evils in 2016? Come on, it's so last year.

@  Robowang : (23 January 2017 - 08:49 AM)

woooo Unknown Evil

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 January 2017 - 08:21 AM)

Jinbu has legs that go all the way up.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 07:11 AM)

Unless you really like legs that go all the way up to the armpits.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 07:11 AM)

I would say repaint Jinbu from Transformers Go, but let's not, they're just awful.

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

He's samurai themed? Anyway, I meant "samurai themed" in the Bludgeon's Pretender shell sense.

I prefer Mighty Morphin' Meower Rangers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 12:07 PM)

Okay, that got too weird, let's just use the Megazordenny's instead.

no, no, not all hope for the characters, all hope for the viewer understanding what the hell is going on.

Isn't that like.. every second spent watching Eva? *hides!*

@  Telly : (21 January 2017 - 02:26 AM)

usually about halfway through, when all hope seems lost

@  Copper Bezel : (21 January 2017 - 02:01 AM)

I understand using Eva to fight monsters, but where does Bob come into it?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:29 AM)

Of course we'll need Bob EVAs to fight all these critters...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:21 AM)

Or Otachipotle.

@  RichardT1977 : (20 January 2017 - 11:03 PM)

Sorry Waspinator, but Sean Bean already reserved that one.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 07:24 PM)

Fair enough, sorry. Although, I think as more people get upset you're going to see it leaking out more.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

Can the politics stay in P&R? I don't really need an emetic that badly.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 05:37 PM)

All of Trump's base are stone cold morons, so there's that. Then again, a lot of people would argue that America has nevr been "great", or even when it is there's plenty to bring down it's score.

@  Vexwing : (20 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

A lot of Trump's base would probably claim it stopped being great 8 years ago.

@  Locoman : (20 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

And today is National Cheese Lover's Day, apparently, so perhaps we should make America grate again while we're at it

@  Bass X0 : (20 January 2017 - 03:43 PM)

How long has it not been great for?

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2017 - 02:34 PM)

Finally, America is great again.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2017 - 12:03 PM)

Me too!

@  Arazyr : (20 January 2017 - 10:08 AM)

My daughters and I have been looking forward to that!

@  Benbot : (20 January 2017 - 09:44 AM)

Nevermind that. Today is a day to celebrate, because season 2 of Voltron is up on Netflix!

@  ShadowMan024 : (19 January 2017 - 06:51 PM)

Past 8 years? Try "past 241."

@  Xellos : (19 January 2017 - 06:44 PM)

So basically the same as the past 8 years. Guess that works too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

We as a nation either drank too much or not enough. It's difficult to say, really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Isn't America being crazy drunk how we got in this situation in the first place?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

I plan on being very American about every single injustice our new leader perpetrates ("American" of course meaning "annoyed and loud").

well, the ad pictures Double-Clutch and Smolder, so that'll be disappointing. If it turns out to be some of the later molds people've had problems finding, might be better for them. I've got 'em all, tho, so meh.

I'm willing to roll the dice on that one.

I know my store got a lot of late release/hard to find stuff when Hasbro gave them the last "unsold pile of toys" back in 2009. Either way, I skipped enough of PCC to a gander worth it. Here's hoping for some final wave commanders slipping in.

A Walmart near where I live has several of the last wave of 5 packs, so it's possible they're getting some of the later toys.

I wonder if they'll ship in more for this?

Pretty much the same in my case. I'm not particularly worried, considering I just recently managed to track down all the PCCs I was missing, but still, count this as a surprise.

Is it wrong that I'm kinda hoping these are limited to the earlier releases, just so that I don't feel stupid for spending close to a hundred bucks to track down the four guys I was still missing?

I promise it won't be worth it. Especially for the big items. They'll have *maybe* 2-5 of them in stock. The ad is really just to get you in the door so that you'll buy stuff anyway to justify the headache.

Actually, on a sort of related note...

How is this going to work for Walmarts that already are open 24 hours/day? Granted it's Thanksgiving, so maybe they will close for some hours (or the whole of Nov 24) before opening again at 12:01? Will people be waiting in-store or outside for the buys?

In 24-hour stores, generally the Black Friday stuff is only found on pallets and other displays; those get wrapped in plastic in the back before being brought out to the floor. Once the stockers have brought them out, employees are posted in each department to ward off the customers (who can and do crowd around them, but aren't allowed to touch). On cue, the workers slice off the plastic wrap and the hordes descend upon the items.

Last year the Wal-Mart here did not let people down the isles. They had employes posted at each isle and the customers had to tell them what they wanted. Said item would get tagged some how and then brought to the front. I was in Afghanistan at the time but Mrs. Smitty was telling me about it.

I only ever got Searchlight and Sledge, so I might brave the local Wal-Mart to see if they get any.

I've got to be out anyway to do the paper route, and so if I'm quick I might be able to be in and out before the head carrier arrives.

Target's opening has been moved back to 1 AM on Black Friday. Apparently some states have laws about not allowing anyone in the building during the holiday, so we can't stay in past midnight Wednesday to set up, thus the hour to actually get the sale items ready. Wal-Mart doesn't mind paying the fines, but Target does, apparently.
