I swear I remember getting the Happymeal G1 minibot as a child, but I live 2.5 hours from St. Louis, which is the only place they apparently came out. It's possible that I got it on a family vacation, though, as we went to Six Flags pretty often.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 October 2020 - 01:07 PM)

Conversely, I had the Gobot helicopter from Wendy's and I was absolutely convinced it was an actual Transformer.

@  Donocropolis : (22 October 2020 - 08:13 AM)

I used to rubber-band Hot-Wheels style construction vehicles together and pretend it was Devestator.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2020 - 05:26 PM)

When I was about four years old, my parents bought me Bugbite and tried to tell me it was Bumblebee. I was not yet a fan of Transformers, but I knew that wasn't Bumblebee. I didn't even have the real Bumblebee at that time.

I just couldn't think of worse music than disco...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 11:35 AM)

What were you trying to imply with the mocking sarcasm, though? Nobody suggested that '80s music was any more "of it's time" than '70s music.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 11:18 AM)

I said that disco wouldn't fare much better with the same context: media is property of it's time; biases, culture and limitations are all inherent in that. Some stuff can be brought forward because of an inherently timeless nature or the simplicity with which it was made but lots of media is a time capsule of the period of when it was made.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 08:46 AM)

I'm not sure what you're trying to imply, or what you even think I said.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 08:11 AM)

Yeah, cause disco would make the transition so much better...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 07:17 AM)

I feel the '80s music would be jarring when running over current-day CGI instead of well, '80s visuals.

My local Walmart FINALLY got a restock of Generations during the early September reset and got a big shipment of Earthrise wave 1 (the first I’d seen around here). IF, and that’s a big IF, they restock I’m expecting a bunch of wave 3. Or wave 2. But we’ll be skipping one of those waves.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 08:40 AM)

My local Symths is still chock full of Earthrise wave 1.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 08:24 AM)

Yup, generally so much they don't bother with any other waves as the existing stock doesn't sell out.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

All the damn time.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

If there's anything there's going to be plenty of stock, it's wave 1.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

I'm really not worried about wave 1 of a new line EVER.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 07:47 AM)

At least you got listings for kingdom. walmart canada won't list them until they're actually in stock and that could very well never happen. I'm gonna get mine from BBTS cause I'm not missing out on the maximals.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:32 AM)

And I don't buy the "they all sold out" explanation. The Kingdom figures are still listed.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:32 AM)

I don't see any of Friday's reveals at Walmart.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:23 AM)

There's a difference between "sold out" and "no trace of a listing".

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:23 AM)

There is still a listing for the scalped and sold out Walmart exclusive limited edition version of Gigawatt.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:22 AM)

But there should still be a listing.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 October 2020 - 06:30 AM)

Probably got scalped and sold out in seconds.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 04:10 AM)

And I don't see links anywhere either.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 04:10 AM)

So did Walmart somehow fail put up the Headmasters preorders as promised by Hasbro, or have the listings been taken down again? I cannot find them.

I got Mega Man #8 and, wow, I was pretty happy with it! Great issue with Mega Man dealing with the first bot (brutal!) and the psychoness of the next encounter. I didn't like what happened to Mega Man in the first arc but, here, it was pretty awesome for some reason. It's soooo evil yet also so bad ass icon-hotrod.gif

Will get into detail next time. I caught up with Sonic Universe too and now I get the sadness of Nicole. Bravo to Tracy's writing!

Ok, I juuust read Sonic the Hedgehog #234.

What... the... HELL?!?! Nobody takes out the humor relief character. It's his fault for being so serious lately. Damn though. Where did that come from?

Ok, Silver's role is suddenly extremely vital now. He HAS to change the past, not the present. This is, of course, if it's a confirmed fatality. If it IS, then Silver has to work fast.

Sally's been tampered with already (its an upgrade but still sorta like robot rape?) so what happens to her when she gets de-roboticized? Naugus was able to restore Bunnie, even with her modifications so his crystal spell can still work.

I thought Naugus could be redeemed but, well, he did want Elias to be eliminated. Hmm.

Man, if Flynn ever works in DC or Marvel, he's going to do great. BTW, haven't seen Scrambled (or Universe 36) but, aaaaaaw, Tracy's no longer doing Universe issues? That was a long run on his part but, oh well. I was hoping for a record number of 100 straight Tracy issues icon-hotrod.gif

Mega Man #11 - Ugh, I should really find time to properly compose comments to Flynn. Really loving the new issues. It bites that the last four Robot Masters had to be crammed in one issue when there were two Robot Masters per issue previously. Air Man should have been taken out by the leaf shield being sucked into his intake; I felt that was a missed opportunity. Metal Man put up a GREAT fight so it's a shame it was cut short. Flash Man, wow. It was only a few panels BUT they were part of his stage! Even sneaking around!!! His stage DID have alternate paths! Quick Man was, well, too quick. He shouldn't have died with a smile on his face. LOVED the ending scene! It's about TIME!

So... much... HAIR!!! LMAO!

BTW, I love how Flynn shows that Mega Man keeps using leaf shield. Sure it's not the usual weapon to beat the Robot Masters but it shows that even partially virused Mega Man is prone to being on the defensive. He used it on Bubble, Heat, Crash, Air (normal). Works for Mega Man as he really doesn't want to fight anyhow.



Sonic the Hedgehog #235. Heeeeeey, is that Antoine's The Journal notebook? I think it was in one of the Sonic Super Specials where it was drawn by Dave Manak where he goes under Robotropolis to search for ... something. Maybe the kudzu plant thingy. He uses a Power Ring which, as he explains, enchances a person's natural talent so he was able to slice up a droid.

I can't remember what issue that is so I can't confirm. Pretty cool of Flynn if he linked it to that.

So Silver is stuck now? Great! He'll be a great heavy hitter not that Bunnie's gone. And, WOW! I betcha Bunnie's off to the Desert place to visit uncle Beauregard to be LEGIONIZED to get her robot limbs back! Man, I HOPE NOT! Let her keep her normal form and just have her pack a suit like Rotor (weird as it looks). But if she does go there, let her bump into Mighty and Ray as they search for Mathilda, YEAH!

Nicole being removed was... sad. But I don't enjoy the political side of things. Makes me feel dirty (and not in a good way.) (Lol)

LOL at Sonic losing his cool all the time. Muttski can talk to him now because of the babel fish, right?

Secret Freedom Fighters... Elias - leader. Silver - powerhouse. Um, Thrash - wildcard. Uh, Nicole - tech support. Bean and Bark - probably going to pop up because they're Flynn's favorites.


Sonic Universe #38 Scrambled Part 2. Woo, page time for Hope! OMG, she invented the Sonic 3 fire shield! Sooooo AWESOME!!! That was great moment too. Pretty cool that Flynn used those cannon fodder guards that Dulcy's boyfriend chinese dragon killed in... #107 of Sonic the Hedgehog? Wow, it's been that long? I would have been happy if Snively really just want to have a family again but I couldn't help by laugh when he devolved into a megalomaniacal speech. Laugh then cry. Poor Hope. Those Egg transports of Eggman look weeeeird, LOL! I have little hope that Regina and Snively's reunion will have a good outcome but, y'know, I kinda want their relationship to be real, instead of Regina just using Snively like that (which she never showed). It was Snively who abandoned her, really.

Mega Man #12 is out?!? @#$@#@%!!! I can't get my copy until next week!

Yeah, Sonic dragging Silver like that was funny yet freaky. Silver really pushed it though when he started grasping at straws and thought Bunnie was the traitor. That's when he deserved a small beatdown.

HA! I'd actually like to see Sonic and Silver battle it out. Sonic really wouldn't stand a chance against TK.

From the notebook, I'm assuming the traitor is Geoffrey. What if the traitor timeline has already passed and it was Patch, the Evil Antoine, when he did infiltrate the group.

Now I'm thinking it's the unlikeliest of the Freedom Fighters. Nicole going Maverick again. Or maybe Miles the Evil Tails (he looked pretty schemey evil the last time the Suppression Squad came over). There was a double of Tails that Mammoth Mogul used before. Maybe part of him will return (I don't think it was absorbed by the real Tails. Real Tails doesn't have the double's memories)

Anyhow, poor Silver. Not allowed to go home until he figures out the real traitor. Guh, what if it's Mecha Sally and not really an internal traitor anyhow? Oh well.

That was my assumption--that Silver just knows one of the Freedom Fighters went evil and screwed everyone over, and is only assuming that that means there's a traitor.

Well, I realize that I'm potentially the only one excited about it, but CBR had a couple of great new interviews with the people heading up the NEW CRUSADERS initiative, and they talked about quite a bit, including the fact that the series will be offered as a print comic a few months after it debuts digitally.

This was the best news for me, since I lack any kind of iDevice, and was pretty much going to have to just wait and hope for collected editions anyway.

Isn't the 'pot leaf' (lmao!) a symbol of royalty or something? I didn't play SONIC THE HEDGEHOG or whatever the game so I don't know what the design is for but I remember Scourge wearing the leaf as a crown during hedgehog havoc (Amy, Rob, Silver, Metal, Rosy etc free for all when Scourge used anarchy beryls). I assumed it was an established authority/king symbol. I don't recall if King Shadow or King Sonic wore one in 30 years later.

I'll check out the New Crusaders if I get access to it cuz it's got Flynn and Bates on it. I don't want to check previews so I don't know how long Bates is staying at Mega Man. Fly-girl and the Web seem like they'd be the obvious pair up, lol.
