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

@  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)

@  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?

@  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

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)

BARRICADE



If I were to nominate someone from the movies, it'd be Barricade. To me, he's the most recognizable Decepticon of the whole lot. He's the first Decepticon we get to see for any great length of time. The first 'con to talk. The first 'con to show off the Decepticon badge. And as a cop car, he stands out from all the military vehicles the rest of the 'cons adopt. Also, after a half hour or so into the movie, he gave us our very first Autobot vs. Decepticon fight. And he showed up again briefly near the end, and once more in DotM. I don't think they were going to bring him back, evidenced by his absence in RotF, but there he was in DotM. Fan demand brought him back? Maybe, but I like to think so. icon-fire.gif

Heh, why not. I actually just had two thin mints...

I'm just pointing out that the one main reason that I wouldn't necessarily wouldn't want to support Bulkhead for HoF is a trait shared by other characters that I also didn't vote for (same thing with Mako's suggestion - Barricade. Of course, he also hasn't had any real characterization, unlike BH). And yes, I don't care for the fact that the HoF has basically just turned into a formula of G1 + 1 BW every year, but if Bulkhead were the non-G1 candidate this year (that is, if he were the only one), I might consider voting for him since I know there's some actual thought behind his inclusion rather than OMG BW

So no hidden meaning intended, I'm pro-Swindle. I like how he shows that a scramble character can be recognizable and used outside of his subGroup either in Animated, or most of the IDW comics.

I don't see how it tarnishes anything. If a certain incompetent business would try and distract their customer base by pimping the fictional character popularity contest rather than discuss real-world problems they are causing said customer base, I have no problem turning said contest on its ear a bit, if only to remind said business that said customer base will not forget said real-world problems, as well as hold said business's incompetence more firmly in the view of its license grantor at a marquee event. An event, in fact, where most if not all attendees in the audience will have exposed themselves to credit card fraud by preregistering for.

@ Otaku

Okay, I've cooled down a bit. Gotta' remember it's just a cartoon. Just a cartoon. . .

I think the confusion came from the fact that, I hadn't seen Daith's post, and you jumped right into painting one of my favorite characters as nothing more than a pair of boobs in your dead-pan fashion. That, and despite being a parody of Daith or whoever's arguments, you seem to believe what you're saying. And if that really is your opinion, I shouldn't care either way. But I felt like I should explain that there is a lot more to the character than just her boobs.


Emphasis added by me. You are correct that I am no longer a BA (Beast Wars version) fan (and was never fond of her in Beast Machines for stealing out Jestorm icon-megs.gif ). I really enjoyed what was done with the character in Animated, however. The part of your quote in bold was just a reminder you had your chance here, and I was eager to continue the discussion. From time to time I still go back and read the Revisiting Beast Machines, which is what turned Beast Machines from my least favorite series into... well, far from my favorite, but much more enjoyable. XD

On to actual suggestions, Swindle does sound pretty good, and I am wondering if I should start a thread to discuss the finer points of the Hall of Fame. I really am curious about what qualities fans believe should matter for characters to get in.
