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.

@  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?

One of the Walmarts near me has some pegs full of Wave 1 TR deluxes.

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?

Understandable. I'm fine with it though, but at this point I'm finding myself disappointed with the FE situation again because of Bulkhead.

I will continue to defend the changes in beast machines to my dying breath. While some charaters BecKs completely unlikable like Silverbolt they all made sense. The situations they were dealing with would make anyone crack.

My primary concern with Starscream is that because his transformation seems to involve basically folding him in half (like the FE version), his alt-mode is going to be disporportionately small (like the FE version).

Do you actually own the FE version? He doesn't fold in half at all, in fact he un-folds, and he's in perfect scale with the other two Cons we have so far; Megatron and Soundwave.
This Starcsream looks like it'll tower over Megatron!

Seriously? I could actually ask for that kind of money for my FE Bulkhead? Not that I'm going to, mind you.

http://www.tfw2005.c...-pictorial.html

Not exactly towering, but the wings give him a lot more height. Once he assumes the proper sycophantic posture, it may be better.

Me, I'm not a fan of the in-show scale, so it really doesn't bother me much that Starscream is almost as tall as Megatron. He's still a twig compared to Megsy's buffness.

... Yes, I do, and you're absolutely right. FE Starscream is to-scale in robot mode with Megatron and Soundwave. He then folds in half to become an itty-bitty jet plane, much like PRID Starscream appears to, and my concern is that PRID Starscream's alt-mode will be disproportionately small, like FE Starscream's is.

What you're saying is you want a spindly little robot to turn into a huge jet?
And just where are you getting your measurements for his jet mode? It's not like any of the cons are in proportion to the bots and both Starscream and Soundwave match up in both modes.

Indeed. TF Prime Megatron is noticeably taller than Optimus Prime, but Optimus can match him almost blow-for-blow.

This is an absolutely fair point, and ultimately it's something I'm just going to have to deal with. Mostly it just bugs me that FE Starscream turns into a jet that's smaller than Bumblebee's car mode, and I want a significantly bigger jet to represent his alt-mode.

(Starscream's an F-16ish jet, though, right? Aren't those bigger than most UAVs?)
