@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 July 2017 - 10:49 PM)

We know why places ain't pre-ordering. Walmart wants "SNES Mini in stock!" In there adds to get people into the strores, and GameStop wants to hold systems back till production is over with to scalp them.

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:39 PM)

And the Walmart debacle has no doubt pissed off a whole lot of people. What should be fun is turned into a harrowing experience by these kind of pathetic sales tactics

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:38 PM)

Nintendo is really starting to push fans' patience with this SNES classic thing. Why are preorders open someplaces overseas but not in North America?

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:03 PM)

Well anywho it's out in Canada and I grabbed mine. I couldn't find a thread so just as a warning: watch out when flipping the head out -- I scratched the paint off a bit while doing so. Very little clearance!

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:01 PM)

Is MPM-3 Bumblebee out in the US yet?

@  Daith : (26 July 2017 - 03:40 PM)

So all of us who thought we had our SNES Classic lined up friday night through Walmart.com just got flipped the bird.

I just hate Facebook.

@  Confuzor : (26 July 2017 - 01:25 AM)

I hate when follow a link to an article from Facebook it has all this extra junk in the address box, so if I want to copy/paste to send to my friends via text, I have to go hunt down the "permalink" so it's a more manageable size

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 08:52 PM)

*sigh* Yup.

@  Foffy : (24 July 2017 - 06:16 PM)

That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:34 PM)

I call bullshit on that

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 01:08 PM)

Read the article. Apparently too many comics sets off the machines due to the glossy pages messing up the X-ray

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:03 PM)

what possible justification could they have to ban books containing drawings?

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 12:56 PM)

Per the article, United appears to be the only airline, but there might be others.

@  Dracula : (24 July 2017 - 12:48 PM)

Like anyone needed another reason not to fly United

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 10:16 AM)

depends what appendage its used on.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

I'm something something years old and I have actually never shaved with anything other than electric

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

is it worth the trouble?

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

Why does a safety razor give a closer shave than an electric razor?

@  RichardT1977 : (24 July 2017 - 10:08 AM)

Nevermore That was Shrapnel, not Bombshell.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:07 AM)

Deluxe Sludge alone is enough that I probably won't have to eat anything until 2025.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:06 AM)

I don't know about Paladin, but I personally am fueled by the rage of fans who have a very specific idea of what a Transformers toyline should be.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 July 2017 - 09:23 AM)

What do you mean too good? I don't recall lots of Micromaster updates.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 09:06 AM)

i remain unconvinced. "if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is."

@  General Tekno : (24 July 2017 - 08:58 AM)

yep - especially given that sure is one hyper easy forensic trail to find everyone involved in the leak

Jesus, that Power of the Primes bombshell leak.

@  Fear or Courage : (24 July 2017 - 08:41 AM)

At least in Canada, they have excellent customer service.

@  Maruten : (23 July 2017 - 11:33 PM)

I've ordered from them several times with no problems.

@  Telly : (23 July 2017 - 11:19 PM)

So last night I had this dream where I was in a store, and there were two TFs I had never seen or heard of. One was Deluxe DotM Soundwave, with green accents on his robot parts, inexplicably called "Que". Box-art was still the same, no effort made to make the toothy Decepticon maw any more benevolent-looking.

Another was "Suburban", who I guess was supposed to be Crowbar, but didn't look like him. He had a different word in every sentence of his bio bolded, and every one of them could have been his name but it was so random that I couldn't figure out which one it was supposed to be.

What kinds of toy dreams have y'all had? Which ones do you hope and pray stay figments of your imagination and never come anywhere near the shelves?

I did actually have a dream once where I was checking the price of a new Fortress Maximus (about the size of Primus) in Universe/Generations styled packaging. Pretty detailed dream, such as the fact that it was, like I said, about Primus sized, the head turned into another robot but it was NOT a double headmaster, and there was a lot more sculpted detail on it, like adding a lot of minicon ports.

I'd love to see that in RL somehow.

I have nightmares about the day I passed up getting the Bomber Megatron and Starscream 2 pack at Canadian tire because "megatron wasn't a jet." ... coulda had a 'thunderclash' too but nope "I was a big boy then" who'd only just bought G2 Devestator for the irony of having the disposable income to just walk in and buy all 6 Constructicons.

Spank me for the 1st of only 2 times in my life BAW... I'll show you parents... 'can't get them all. pick one HA!'

yeah should'a got the ones at Canadian tire instead of the Woolworth's going out of business sale 3 dollar constructicons

Coincidentally, just the other night I had a dream that I was watching a new Transformers movie on the big screen. It was set between Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon.

I'm not sure if that counts as a nightmare or not.

Had the latest in a long series of "finding knockoffs amidst the real things" dreams. Movie Starscream with Prime Starscream's proportions, and a "Prime" Skywarp who was Movie Starscream with Stealth Iron Man's colors.

I once dreamt of a Deluxe F-22 Classics Starscream with a wing sword like Armada Starscream, but he had Prime Starscream-ish colors.

I also dreamt of a Samurai prowl toy before it was even announced, and dreamt of a Lugnut Supreme-like toy before the finale of TFA.

I dreamt of power core combiner Soundwave where Ravage becomes the body, Rumble/Frenzy and Laserbeak/Buzzsaw become the legs, then after that comes Soundblaster where Ratbat is the body, Slugfest, Overkill, Squawktalk and Beastbox become limbs.

This one... Clear memories of walking right past both this and Thunderclash Prime, don't know what the deal was- how they got there... but I know I picked up Megatron and Starscream and said ...Nope This is not something Megatron would do with Starscream. and then Picking up the thunderclash box and looking -for a long time- at the box art, and I remember thinking "who are they trying to fool with this? there is no Way that Cab section turns into that robot.

A couple of years ago I dreamt I saw a new line with minimalist packaging - mostly white with black text and a little red, not unlike the MUJI Lego craft sets, that was part of a Hasbro environmental initiative.

The one I took off the peg was a Scout class Ramhorn, an Autobot packaged in alt-mode which was a bright red robotic triceratops. There was also a black and clear plastic Decepticon hovercraft.

Disappointed when I woke up, loved the packaging and Ramhorn seemed pretty cool.

I constantly dream about finding BW and Universe stuff on the racks alongside whatever the current line is, gathering the ones I want and heading to the register only to wake up.

Dreamt of a carded Basic-sized Optimus Primal and a Voyagers BM Silverbolt once and pretty sure there was a new Nightbeat and Scorponok in there, too.

Ok I just woke up in total fustration cos of a dream the story

Ok I was shoping online for Fs and came to a mom and pop online toy store where there when tons of lose G1s but I dint order anything but I noticed they talk about a connetor for the MM combiners like Six Turbo that allowed the random guy pluged in the back to be placed better
And that certan stored where still selling the connector so off I went to serch
Fast forward and I guess the serch was still on and I was at a newly hugey remodeled covenance store known around heres as Buc'ees and they sometime carry toys so I went looking but there toy section had moved and well I had managed to get to look in the back room
And come to find out they where a distrabution node for a lot of online retailers
Includeing the online mom and pop toy shop there was a section of shelf crammed with G1s
The firs I spoted was a Rodimus but I went digging but a lot of it I already owned
Now fustration sets in....

Wait. Wait, wait, wait. Are you telling me that tec has a job? I thought his sole reasons for existence are cheesecake and horrible grammar.-Shadowman024
