A loose Scraplet wandering around??? Get back to the damn bar where you belong.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (27 July 2017 - 01:16 PM)

Or a scraplet!

you might be a witch or a vampire.

it's called "melting," yeah

Anyone get this weird sensation when they're showering in hot water?

@  Daith : (26 July 2017 - 11:48 PM)

Stop making business sense! Your triggering my irrational hatred more!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 July 2017 - 10:49 PM)

We know why places ain't pre-ordering. Walmart wants "SNES Mini in stock!" In there adds to get people into the strores, and GameStop wants to hold systems back till production is over with to scalp them.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 July 2017 - 10:47 PM)

When The Revolution Comes, They'll Be The First Against The Wall-Mart

@  D Buster Prime : (26 July 2017 - 06:20 PM)

Wal-Mart? More like Off The Wall-Mart! Amiright?! *cries over canceled preorder*

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:39 PM)

And the Walmart debacle has no doubt pissed off a whole lot of people. What should be fun is turned into a harrowing experience by these kind of pathetic sales tactics

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:38 PM)

Nintendo is really starting to push fans' patience with this SNES classic thing. Why are preorders open someplaces overseas but not in North America?

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:03 PM)

Well anywho it's out in Canada and I grabbed mine. I couldn't find a thread so just as a warning: watch out when flipping the head out -- I scratched the paint off a bit while doing so. Very little clearance!

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:01 PM)

Is MPM-3 Bumblebee out in the US yet?

@  Daith : (26 July 2017 - 03:40 PM)

So all of us who thought we had our SNES Classic lined up friday night through Walmart.com just got flipped the bird.

I just hate Facebook.

@  Confuzor : (26 July 2017 - 01:25 AM)

I hate when follow a link to an article from Facebook it has all this extra junk in the address box, so if I want to copy/paste to send to my friends via text, I have to go hunt down the "permalink" so it's a more manageable size

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 08:52 PM)

*sigh* Yup.

@  Foffy : (24 July 2017 - 06:16 PM)

That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:34 PM)

I call bullshit on that

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 01:08 PM)

Read the article. Apparently too many comics sets off the machines due to the glossy pages messing up the X-ray

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:03 PM)

what possible justification could they have to ban books containing drawings?

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 12:56 PM)

Per the article, United appears to be the only airline, but there might be others.

@  Dracula : (24 July 2017 - 12:48 PM)

Like anyone needed another reason not to fly United

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 10:16 AM)

depends what appendage its used on.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

I'm something something years old and I have actually never shaved with anything other than electric

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

is it worth the trouble?

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

Why does a safety razor give a closer shave than an electric razor?

@  RichardT1977 : (24 July 2017 - 10:08 AM)

Nevermore That was Shrapnel, not Bombshell.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:07 AM)

Deluxe Sludge alone is enough that I probably won't have to eat anything until 2025.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:06 AM)

I don't know about Paladin, but I personally am fueled by the rage of fans who have a very specific idea of what a Transformers toyline should be.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 July 2017 - 09:23 AM)

What do you mean too good? I don't recall lots of Micromaster updates.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 09:06 AM)

i remain unconvinced. "if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is."

@  General Tekno : (24 July 2017 - 08:58 AM)

yep - especially given that sure is one hyper easy forensic trail to find everyone involved in the leak

Jesus, that Power of the Primes bombshell leak.

@  Fear or Courage : (24 July 2017 - 08:41 AM)

At least in Canada, they have excellent customer service.

@  Maruten : (23 July 2017 - 11:33 PM)

I've ordered from them several times with no problems.

@  Telly : (23 July 2017 - 11:19 PM)

Beast Megatron (love the new purple, don't like the black face)
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1432.html

Optimus Primal (nearly identical to the Hasbro one)
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1431.html

Axalon (looks awesome)
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1430.html

Unicron (darker colors than Hasbro's)
http://blog-imgs-32....24005149b3e.jpg

Twincast, Stripes, and Nightstalker
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1428.html
Twincast does have the larger chest (and obviously the anime colored face) but it's been retool to remove the extra detailing. I LOVE, LOVE how Nighstalker's tape mode is nearly identical to Ravage - that is frickin' sweet!

Soundblaster, Enemy, and Wing Thing
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1427.html
Soundblaster has the newly colored face, modified stickers (all which look to be applied at the factory), and at least in this gallery is missing his dial. Enemy mimics the missing stripe stickers via paint apps (Encore Rumble & Frenzy were just bare).

Is anyone else's older release of Beast Megatron suffering from slightly-loose hip joints? The joints on mine have gotten loose enough that he slowly dips downwards in beast mode, only stopping once his T.rex head is inches from touching the ground. It's making it slightly tempting to get this absurdly-overpriced release. icon-wildride.gif

Axalon looks pretty good; it's amazing how the paint job helps make it look fairly different from Energon Sharkticon. icon-ironhide.gif

Axalon looks great. At that price, though, I'll have to contemplate it a bit.

The cassettes... nnnnnn so sad I can't get them.

Beast Megatron actually looks nice. But at that price it's a no go, edging toward a not ever.

Well, I'm in love with Megatron's darker purple and Axalon. Dammit.


And I never noticed until now that Cybertron Optimus' beast forearms/robot thighs are molded different from the BW release.

Man, Twincast and Soundblaster look great. The cassettes turned out perfectly too for the most part, I still love the crazy choices.

Hopefully I'll be able to get at least Twincast at some point, since the mold would be new for me.

The Vector Oracle Micron is actually for any Transformers toy (including Dark of the Moon), so there's no indication he's from the movie.

Since he's referred to as an Arms Micron, Prime would be the logical assumption.

Since we have the bios for Soundblaster's tapes transcribed, I ran them through Google Translate. Am I correct in thinking Enemy's sonic power is to make his enemies too angry to think straight? And that Wingthing is explicitly a drone with a personality program?

Ah I see now, still a nice way to change it to add a little difference.

I got my United figures today.

Axalon is awesome and Megatron is pretty cool (love the new purple). Unicron is nice, but Primal is a wash. I'll have to dig out my originals to see if there is anything different about Primal.

We're already seen that the surfboard combines the paint masks of the previous two versions and that the Maximal symbol is in Primal's butt instead of the outside.

They're balljoints, so they're just wearing down. Stick a dot of superglue on the ball and then put the leg back on and work it around some. Good as new.

They didn't change it. They've been backwards since the Cybertron (ie second) release of Primal.
Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.
