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!

@  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)

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.

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 10:52 AM)

Note I wrote "bombshell"in lowercase.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:17 AM)

in this case, face

@  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

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 08:56 AM)

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 08:55 AM)

Holy cow.

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)

i havent. but ive only ordered from them a few times

WalkyCon, which was held in Columbus, Ohio, on March 18, 2012, in my house, with several cases of Guinness and some Mini-Vehicles, also welcomes third party items!

There are still some other unofficial Transformers conventions remaining that I am unsure of their stance on third-party items.

C'mon guys. Don't leave us hanging.

Have you given any consideration to moving Walkycon 2013 to Bloomington, Indiana? Lunch at Dagwoods and dinner at Mother Bears!

I'm going to boycott Walkycon because the organizer(s) refuse to have it in my backyard!

(Actually I am going to get the exclusives anyway, but I am going to say this.)

We should just compromise and make that Bloomington, IL. They have a Jimmy Johns.

Hey, I don't know about that. Didn't they have a really nice repaint of Transformers Prime Ratchet this year? I'm not sure if every attendee to Walkycon got one, but it was still pretty nice.

(Admittedly, I'm going under the assumption that Walkycon is a nonexistent event that takes place in your house. If you actually had a convention without telling anyone, I'd be disappointed.)


What were the panels like? Drunken tirades, or something like a Mystery Science Theater episode? Or a mix of both?
My FlickR folder...

And yes, I was too lazy to come up with a decent TF related forum name, and just *GASP* used my own.

Papa Johns has to fit their pizzas to US saftey standards!

It's easy enough for small 3rd party independent pizzarias to bake five-sausages any size they want, but if one little kid died from over-sausagation Papa would catch hell!


-ZacWilliam, besides, the garlic dipping sauce clearly proves they love us.

*Edit... Great, now I want Papa Johns. Thanks alot Walky. icon-arcee.gif

Wow, now THAT is awesome.

I can only assume that Dagwoods will be a future conquest in the pizza and sub empire.
