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.

hascon

@  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)

Tyrest? He was chief justice, even :p

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

When an app asks me to give a review or a rating, I decline, but I always look at other people's reviews before I get an app.

This show is still more fun and enjoyable then Prime is.

Also Doc Green's car at the start looks like it was a homage to the Delorian Time Machine.

Anyone know when the repeat is scheduled? I had college today, and no one was at home to fiddle with the VCR for me (I don't have the $$$ for a DVR).

I quite liked the first two episodes, but I found this one just dull. Too much in the way of mundane disasters (rockslides, lightning strikes), too little whacky super-science.

Even if it doesn't have the long-running plots of Prime, it does character moments far, far, far better than Prime ever has. And I'd rather have character over plot any day. Like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Hey, how about that!
Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

As usual, great fun! I loved the Delorean homage, and was Dani's suggestion to try to stop it by landing on it a reference to the second BTTF when Marty suggests something similar?

Did anyone catch the name of the cliffs where Blades went down?

Also, is there a trailer for next week's episode anywhere?

I liked that this one focused on Dani, and yes that was totally the Delorean Time Machine with green liquid instead of blue lightning.

Actually, I found the string of disasters to be pretty reasonable, especially if they all took place over a relatively short span of time (such as 2 - 3 days).

In my neck of the woods, we can get some pretty powerful storms moving on through. What's worse, rather than one large storm simply coming and going, we can have entire weeks in which the storms arbitrarily come and go.

Bridge out? A hard wind and a hard rain could have taken it down with ease.

Rock slide? Hard rain over a prolonged period can actually weaken the structure of some formations. In fact, we've actually got a problem around here with a local variety of clay: it's absolutely solid when dry, but disintegrates completely when wet.

Tree down? Hard winds.

Then we have the lightning storm that made for the major twist in the episode.

Good character episode for Blades. I like they they teased him for the shovel-gut and then resented his glory-hogging (which was really more Dani's influence). As with Prime, this show sells itself to me on the strength of the personalities. I like that even though this is the show for the younger set, the characters have quirks (Heatwave is a jerk, Blades a bit of a pantywaist, Chase is uptight, etc).

This would have been a great episode to introduce the Rescue Gear gimmick. Doesn't Hasbro want to sell toys? Why hasn't Sawyer Storm made an appearance?

Oh, and Rescue Bots is better than Prime.

You know, after watching this episode, I just have to draw a crossover pic of G1 Blades holding this counterpart of him dangling from a one-story height building, expressing his disbelief that this guy is supposed to be him... icon-fire.gif
