Oh wait, figured it out. Doi...

@  Pennpenn : (19 February 2017 - 04:02 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

@  Sockie : (17 February 2017 - 10:07 PM)

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.

Supposedly.

After he finishes his eight-year drag on the Avengers franchise, Brian Michael Bendis may be getting the keys to the X-Men corner of the universe.

So enjoy Wolverine and the X-Men, X-Factor, and whatever else is fun and quirky while you can. They might not be around after this year.

On the plus side, Avengers will finally be free.

Let's see...Spider-Woman will be retroactively be found to have an X-Gene.

Luke Cage's baby will turn out to be a mutant, facilitating Cage and Jessica Jones to move in with the X-Men.

Magneto will split off from the X-Men again, and instead of forming a new Brotherhood, will form a new Dark X-Men.

Ms. Marvel will frequently guest-star.

Everyone will begin speaking like a twelve year old girl. The conversations they have will last an entire issue.

What else?

Didn't they already make Jessica Drew a mutant? I mean I guess she's different from an x-gene mutant, but that's kinda splitting hairs. They still call Namor a mutant after all.

As long as it gets him away from the Avengers franchise. I don't read most xbooks anyway.

I just miss the days when heroes had big exciting adventures ful of wonder and epic scale, when they did fun stuff and fought colorful supervillians in costumes. The day Bendis leaves will be one step closer to the Avengers being the type of comic I want to read again.


-ZacWilliam, if the Avengers never have another issue long, semi-depresive conversation in their living room, have their house/skyscraper/mythical city blown up, or fight other heroes over political differences, an army of generic sci-fi ish government/semi-government troops, or semi-villians who mostly wear normal clothes and want to talk about how the Avengers are the real villians ever again it will be TOO SOON.

There is nothing official...just Rich trying to break a story. He did break the New 52 story and Before Watchmen though, I saw a rumour that it is Uncanny X-Men that Bendis will be taking over, which I'm fine with.

Well he is a human Atlatean hybrid which is a type of human mutant. Not much different then Franklin being a mutant by being the offspring of Reed and Sue.

Actually, no. Namor is a mutant becasue of those tiny wings on his ankles that give him the power of flight. Seriously. They're from the x-gene and what make him a mutant.


-ZacWilliam, it has nothing to do with his hybrid human atlantian mix.

God, bendis is such a hack. He's a big reason why I havent been reading anything from marvel or dc lately. Let him write some solo, noir-ish characters. Dude just doesn't know how to write anything else.

Why would Bendis be a big reason why you're not reading from BOTH companies? I could understand Marvel...but he doesn't write for DC icon-hotrod.gif He's not a hack. He just gets complacent on books that he has had a long run on. Such as both Avengers books. His work on Ultimate Comics Spider-Man has been really good so far, better than I expected.

Because his writing style has become extremely popular. It seems like both companies prefer writers that write in that obnoxious, overly talky style. He's also one of the first writers, to my knowledge, to start "writing for the trade", which has also become the norm.

Yeah Geoff Johns is right up there with him in that regard. I used to be a much bigger Bendis fan than I am now. I don't think though he's a better choice than the two main writers they have writing X-Men right now....although like I said, I would be fine with him taking over Uncanny X-Men, as that book has just been plain boring.

Bendis sort of addresses the rumour and boasts that what he's doing after AVX is so much more...still not spilling the beans. I'm guessing they're waiting for the next major con to divulge this information.
