@  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

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.

I'm assuming Wheeljack has had this bio, or something similar to it, for a few years. We just don't normally get to see these.

I can't remember if there's been any behind the scenes info about him, but Prime Wheeljack may be taken from this bio.

Arcee's bio is a good example of how problematic this merging of continuities can be. They take two characters both named Arcee and make them one person. I consider G1 Arcee and Prime Arcee to be seperate characters.


Well they're trying to be inclusive of all versions of Arcee. Surprised a bit there's nothing about her being an Omnibot or sculpting Energon in there. That would have been pretty cool actually. Shoot.

Just consider this filling in the general bio of Aligned Continuity Arcee.


-ZacWilliam, or let it go as being a necessary facet of the trans-universal Hall entries...

That is disappointing, and it's such a simple line to throw in.

Pretty good spread here. No clue who I want to vote for.
My favorite part of this process is getting to see the bios for the guys that have obviously been "Aligned".

I find it kind of boring that post-G1 guys like BW Megatron and Sky-byte basically just get summaries of their shows.

Agreed, Sky-Byte didn't even get a mention of being from the G2 era, which is the picture they used for him.


I like how Megatron's bio makes it sound like he won BM, he made an army and countered Cybertron, no mention of his final defeat.

I'm really torn over who to vote for, they're all great picks. I hope next year they just auto-induct Primal and save me some trouble. icon-hotrod.gif

It's funny how Beast Wars Megatron (on the Mainframe cartoons) is like my favorite character ever from Transformers, meanwhile his interpretation in Japanese media is pretty much exactly what I hate (seemingly unintelligent Decepticon Leader type).

I will admit that I did like that the United version had an Intelligence of a 10 while Optimus Primal's was a 9. That seems befitting (don't know if those stats were stolen from the Anniversary versions or not?).

Is it? That's terribly inconsistent with their official stance on Megatron, then.

At any rate, I don't see any mention of that in Rodimus' bio, unless you want to really stretch some of the generic stuff about inspiration to other Autobots.

How come Wheeljack's bio doesn't say anything about him being Hot Shot's best friend until he was left for dead and joined the Decepticons, becoming Megatron's secret ace in the hole?

Unlike E Rodimus, Armada Wheeljack can't be argued to be an alt of the original character. Otherwise BW Megatron already in the Hall of Fame, becuase he's Megatron.

Well, that's kind of my point. Energon Rodimus isn't the same character. He was never Hot Rod, and while his past self was compared to Hot Shot (the real Hot Rod/Rodimus parallel), that was only in hearsay. Actually if he were to parallel another Transformers character it would probably be Sentinel Prime.

Except he shares the same looks, and name, and role (leader). Doesn't matter if he wasn't Hot Rod, he is Rodimus. Same with Animated, he looks like Hot Rod, but he's Rodimus and a leader. To Hasbro they are all the same.
