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.

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.

@  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.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 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.

Fort Max was heavily rumored for release in the next couple of years.

There have been rumours about Dinobots but not all rumors turn out ot be true. Molds busted or not, I'd say it would be smart money to reinvest in those, but we'll see.

At least Encore is continuing. The more surprises ahead, the better.

Even if a molds are busted these companies have the technology Im sure to remold from original toy. As for Fort Max...I think the new candy mold might be a feeler to see how well it goes over. Im just curious about release's and child safety. Id deff shell out 200 or so for a reissue vs a G for an original one.

I'd like to see the Dinobots (for obvious reasons) and then the Aerialbots myself. Yes, the Aerialbots have been (and continue to be) knocked off to infinite degree but, well they're my favorite Combiner and I'd love to see them brought back at Takara quality and with new Decos (even remolds?) to better match the toon.


I'm a bit biased about Fort Max. On the one hand I still have my original from childhood. Now I could use a few pieces to fix him up but I don't think I'd ever spring for another full version. Almost certainly would be too pricey for me.


Ooooo, I know Dino Cassettes! Release those four! Surprised it took me this long to think of them...


ZacWilliam, feels the cassettes are infinately collectable. They could keep churning out new character repaints and even start making new ones in exactly the G1 style and I'd want them all. Just don't keep packaging them with Blaster and SW... icon-waspy.gif

I'd want a four pack of Scrounge (Rumble), Tyrannitron (Overkill), Top-Heavy (Ramhorn) and Lionizer (Steeljaw).

When it comes to cassette repaints, i think each mold should be used four times (minus reissues). Laserbeak for example was repainted into Buzzsaw, Garboil and Sundor so no more of that mold while there are other molds to be repainted.

I wouldn't mind some E-hobby characters like Tiger Tracks released at reasonable prices.

New character repaints would be nice. How many Jazzes and Ironhides do we need among all the lines? Maybe Barricade from Prowl or Black Ironhide as Motormouth.

G1 Acid Storm and Slipstream.

If they think it'll be worth the expense, then they may. But due to lost/destroyed/degraded molds, we have yet to see several G1 toys reissued, like Wheeljack and Mirage for example.

In Japan I'm sure it won't be an issue, but there's no way it would get a mass-release here.

Oh, I'm sure it would cost more than that. Still be cheaper than an original for sure, though.

The Dinobots are about the only G1 molds I could feasibly see being worth the expense.

I'd love a Reissue Wheeljack and all but I have a feeling him (and Sunstreaker/Mirage) wouldn't be that great of a seller.

I wager you are correct there, and that's why the work on new molds for them has not been done. Its just not likely to be worth it.
