@  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.

@  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.

@  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.

No, apparently just United did.

If anyone cares, it turns out TakaraTomy uploaded their TV commercial for the Prime toy-line last weekend, showing (briefly) Soundwave, Arcee (with pink blade Mini-Con!) And Bulkhead. (with his wrecking-ball Mini-Con)


Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

I wish the US advertisers would use stop-motion for their toy advertisements. I would actually watch TV if that much effort was put into commercials.

I don't know if they legally can in the US. I seem to remember a lawsuit or something over the old Micro Machines commercials, which had stop-motion cars driving around until idiot parents complained that the actual toys didn't magically drive by themselves, go up ramps, or make turns.

Then again, even before this happened the US G1 commercials didn't have stop-motion, but the awesome animation made specifically for the commercials made up for it as far as I'm concerned.

The Kre-O adverts are stop motion and they are awesome. I don't think they're screened on TV though.

Yeah, but... I've been coming to discover that much of the toy market of the 80's was, to be blunt, toy companies whipping it out and waving it all around going "LOOK HOW BIG THIS IS!!!", regardless of profitability. The decade of nigh-sociopathic excess.

Stuff like Fort Max and the USS Flagg are probably the biggest examples of "we're going to lose money but it LOOKS REALLY HUGE ON A SHELF HA HA EAT IT COMPETITOR", but animated commercials sure seem to fit that mentality.

Meh, even if they did bring them back they'd probably just be 3DCG. So I don't really care.

Not since the second movie or so. They use the US names now. More recognizable, I suppose. A shame, because I always enjoyed seeing what "first name" the current Convoy would get.

He was Optimus Prime in the first movie, too. The only reason they didn't switch to Optimus Prime wholesale right then is that they didn't import Animated then, waiting until after RotF instead.

It was also at that point where they switched to Autobots and Decepticons, instead of Cybertrons and Destrons.
