I kinda want an Autobot to have the function of "Social Justice Warrior".

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 February 2017 - 12:20 PM)

Even we have limits.

@  Robowang : (21 February 2017 - 12:18 PM)

Good. But let's agree not to do one for Tecumseh.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 February 2017 - 12:12 PM)

Shitting Bull.

@  Robowang : (21 February 2017 - 11:54 AM)

or spending a lot of time taking a Squatto?

@  Robowang : (21 February 2017 - 11:49 AM)

nice

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 February 2017 - 11:42 AM)

I'm kinda disappointed how they messed up Legion Bisk's hands so that his front wheels can't roll.

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

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

@  Paladin : (18 February 2017 - 09:39 PM)

https://twitter.com/autobase_aichi/status/833142409005391872 ....is that an MP DINOBOT teaser?!?!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 February 2017 - 09:35 PM)

Yeah, never seen a Titans Return Hot Rod

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

Or Hot Rod. D=

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

Wow, seriously? I don't think I've even seen him here. =(

@  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

TF vs G.I. Joe counts more than anything else.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (17 February 2017 - 08:52 PM)

Does that even count?

@  LBD "Nyt... : (17 February 2017 - 08:52 PM)

OH, that one.

@  Pennpenn : (17 February 2017 - 08:39 PM)

The most recent one, I think? I don't think Fort Max or Trypticon even appear in the earlier ones.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (17 February 2017 - 08:37 PM)

Which one was that?

@  unitremover : (17 February 2017 - 07:16 PM)

They did in the Scioli TF vs GI Joe

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 February 2017 - 05:37 PM)

Have Fortress Maximus and Trypticon ever fought each other before Titans Return?

@  Dekafox : (17 February 2017 - 05:20 PM)

Smart Brain? He's trying to take over the world through weaponized electronic accessories?

@  Msol : (17 February 2017 - 05:16 PM)

Reminds me of Smart Robin in a good way.

@  Msol : (17 February 2017 - 05:16 PM)

Oh man Triggerhappy is awesome.

@  Rycochet : (17 February 2017 - 11:30 AM)

I'm afraid to imagine what was done to it to turn it into bubble tea.

@  MEDdMI : (17 February 2017 - 11:04 AM)

You must have been feeding it. That's when it turns from sweet tea to bitter mutated chaotic tea.

@  Rycochet : (17 February 2017 - 11:00 AM)

I didn't know Tea could do that, I thought it just turned into a disgusting drink.

@  MEDdMI : (17 February 2017 - 10:59 AM)

They also multiply when they get wet. Don't feed them after midnight, either.

@  Rycochet : (17 February 2017 - 10:58 AM)

Don't get them wet otherwise you'll end up with a case of brownbelly.

@  MEDdMI : (17 February 2017 - 10:56 AM)

What about t-shirts made out of tea bags?

@  Rycochet : (17 February 2017 - 10:55 AM)

No, no, it's teens who need putting in airtight containers, tea you can leave anywhere.

@  MEDdMI : (17 February 2017 - 10:53 AM)

Tea is best stored in airtight containers, not china.

@  Rycochet : (17 February 2017 - 10:24 AM)

I thought all the tea was in china.

This looks one of the better attempts at making Nightbird.
Still, being a non-transforming figure, getting it isn't very high on my list.

I might have been interested in it as a "Decepticon" if they had given it a transformation.

I really would like a Nightbird figure, as her episode was always one of my favorites as a kid. I haven't jumped at any of the other attempts and I would pick this up if it weren't for the price (this is coming from someone who dropped the $600 + for Hercules). I think the pricepoint is far, far out of alignment with the reality of what the figure is. I don't really want a transforming Nightbird, just a decent representation of the figure at a reasonable (read: no more than say, $50) price.

Am I the only one who wants to see third parties dig deeper? Between Arcee, Nightbird, Devastator and Optimus Prime, we have a fairly shallow pool overall. I want more Springer type stuff. (I actually want Springer himself too). This is what? The third or fourth Nightbird? Why is Nightbird four times as relevant as Blitzwing or Broadside or Blaster? Don't get me wrong, the work that went into this is very impressive, but these companies need to widen their net if they want to scrape some of my play money away from me.

That was available at TFcon a couple years back, and that one was clearanced out at BBTS for $30 pretty quick. Nice little toy too, but a little thin and floppy.

I have a theory that third parties now look at each other and go, "You did that? Nuh-uh, no you didn't! I'ma do it like ten times better!"

Blaster and maybe Broadside are covered at least.

And MP-sized Blaster is in the works from the guys doing the MP-sized Soundwave, and Broadside is still on FansProject's list, after being teased at TFCon like, 3-4 years ago or something. He was probably Warbot-02, as listed on FansProject's (ridiculously, unbelievably optimistic) release schedule for last year.

We do really need a Blitzwing from somebody though. He's the last major hole in a Classics Decepticon army, with no real 3rd Party or outside-line (ie: Energon Shockblast or Cybertron/Device Label Soundwave filling in for Classics) substitute.

I personally attribute his absence to the relative difficulty of designing a robot that transforms into both a semi-realistic jet and tank, without being simply an articulated retread of the G1 design. But what do I know?

I hadn't heard about the MP Blaster. I'll believe Broadside when I see it. I really should have branched out beyond the first three B names that sprang to mind. Impactor maybe? Sandstorm triple changer? WFC Shockwave? I could go for an updated Tailgate after MtmtE #1. I could go on. Anyway, sorry to derail the thread. Though now I want to design a new Blitzwing.

iGear had Impactor in the works, but no clue whether that'll get done or not. Entirely new mold, but directly borrows Generations Warpath's engineering.

Hasbro's giving us RoC Shockwave in the next Generations line. Wave 1, along with the new Prime and Jazz.

Same here. Sex sells, I know, but do we also need that to sell giant transforming robots? (Then again, KISS Players...)

Zero interest in Nightbird. She was a non-entity who had no personality or even a voice. I'd buy toys of the cartoon's Sentinel Prime (that rhino-car) before hers.
