I haven't been up there in a while but one of the Walmarts around here still has AOE deluxes out. Some of the CVSs do too.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 February 2017 - 09:34 PM)

It's been the same thing in local stores for ages up here.

@  BlackMax : (22 February 2017 - 09:33 PM)

One near me is the same - I swear they have over forty Deluxes there, all from many months ago.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 07:43 PM)

my walmart finally filled those empty tr pegs. and of course its a mix of waves one and 2 (wave 1.5?)

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 February 2017 - 07:11 PM)

Got Highbrow, Skullcrusher, Scourge, and Chromedome for $5 a piece

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 February 2017 - 07:10 PM)

My Walmart had a Generations Rattrap hanging for the past 2 and a half years, and in trying to clearance it, inadvertently marked down the entire Generations Deluxe assortment.

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 February 2017 - 07:09 PM)

A shelf warmer's ultimate revenge: being around long enough that in trying to clearance it...the store marks down the entire SKU!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:59 AM)

Eh, he would've gotten beaten up if the government sent just about anyone.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:56 AM)

Regardless, literally everything I've ever seen (and a lot on tfwiki) attributes Megatron's slide into violence to Whirl beating him up while in custody. Maybe not like flicking a switch but Megatron's line "You made me. You taught me words were weightless without force" kinda spells it out.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I'm not sure if there even was a specific turning point, but he didn't seem kill happy yet when he was with Terminus, and that was after Whirl beating him up.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:24 AM)

It was also before any sort of uprising or him actually doing much of anything.

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

I mean, the whole thing didn't start as "the great war". It was an uprising that eventually morphed into a the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:17 AM)

Yeah, of course it's before the war, Whirl beating Megatron while he was in custody was the tipping point that made Megatron turn violent.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 05:12 AM)

But the thing with Whirl was before he started the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 03:28 AM)

Like so many awful things in that universe, it's basically Whirl's fault.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 12:51 AM)

for about 10 minutes. then he got all kill happy

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 February 2017 - 10:27 PM)

Wouldn't IDW Megatron kind of count since his main reason for instigating the Great War was to overthrow the Functionist social order?

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:05 PM)

(I haven't read IDW at all please don't sue me)

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:04 PM)

@  RichardT1977 : (19 February 2017 - 12:45 AM)

One of the Walmarts near me has some pegs full of Wave 1 TR deluxes.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (18 February 2017 - 08:58 PM)

@  LBD "Nyt... : (18 February 2017 - 08:58 PM)

@  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?

@  unluckiness : (18 February 2017 - 07:13 AM)

I think there was a premonition panel in the Devil's Due TF vs JOEs

And with a monkey gun knife instead of cannon.

I dunno. I might cancel and redo my order. I had never seen a re-stocks on a JP site before so I didn't add FE Megs. Got the AM version instead, this before hearing about them having the US paint job. It does worry me since FE Optimus is listed as discontinued on HLJ and I haven't heard about Megs being shipped out yet, only CJ and Bulkhead

Then watch then they won't do restock him and the pre-order prices will goes up on the AM figures. Though now I sorta want that monkey gun knife now.

Just made my first HLJ preorder, though god knows how many I'll actually go through with. Bumblebee and OP are first on the chopping block if the first decent pictures don't knock my socks off.

I picked the wrong shipping method by accident, though. Hope I can change it, but I won't find out till Monday, which is when the order enters into their accounting systems.

Monkey-butt-knife-gun actually comes with another Deluxe Megatron.

I'm VERY curious what they do to make him different from the first.

HLJ put a preorder for a box of 10 of the capsule minicons(Arms Microns) for the deluxe price. I wonder if it's some assortment of the 4 seperate ones, or if the partner ones are mixed in? Need more pictures before march

You can change it in your Account under Shipping Method or something. You can change it between orders to try and have it set up whichever way you want depending on what order is coming up next. I almost always have mine on EMS. Though I think if you chose SAL when you placed the order they may stick with that since you specified that at time of order. I'm not really sure though (as I'm almost always doing EMS for everything).

It's probably 2 of each of the 4 and then 2 of the 4 will have 3 instead of just two - if the EZ sets are anything to go by.

That's AM-05 Megatron correct? That's what I ordered with Skywarp.

Honestly my weak little heart canna take all this! Thought I could pick up some of these after they'd been on the shelves for a few weeks. *fans face* I'd be so much happier if I never knew the FE versions never existed.

Maybe he'll just be the same mold with 5mm ports (and stickers), like that FE Prime from that toy show.

Almost certainly. If the Microns from the larger toys are coming in the capsule toys, I imagine they'll be part of later waves.

Which would probably mean the first wave of capsule minicons are intended for other characters (or at least later Prime/Bumblebee toys) at some stage.

Looking...exactly like what you imagine Skywarp would look like.

I don't care, I still want him.

And his silhouetted friend, whose identity I'm gonna take a wild stab in the dark at.


Didn't Orci/Kurtzmann said if they'll do seekers in Prime, they'll look totally different then Starscream?

The MInicons, I hope, will be coming out in some form in the west too.
