Oh wait, figured it out. Doi...

@  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

When an app asks me to give a review or a rating, I decline, but I always look at other people's reviews before I get an app.

@  Sockie : (17 February 2017 - 10:07 PM)

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 am already loving "Ratbat". Even on such tiny pics, he looks much better then that abysmal third-part thing that only had one leg...

I wonder what the fusion cannon transforms into, though. I hope these minicons will be available separately, too.

Unicron is... well, as expected, a Rock Lord. Not sure what the whole 'Chaos Armor' is for, unless that is meant for Nemesis Prime (who is bound to get a toy). Maybe in S2 they will again pull Unicron out of their tailpipe for a season ending?

And Swerve seems to be Breakdown, with a new head.

I have read on TFW2005 (gotten from someone who understands japanese) that the Jet Vehicon is not a new mold, it is the car mold retooled. So yeah, it'll be a flying car, not a plane. Maybe we can make Cybertronian Tracks from that.

Hmm, well, they fly so fast, I never noticed before. I always thought they had cockpits on their backs in robot mode,and hence I imagined they'd be more jet-like.

It's very apparent in the first episode of Season 2 when Starscream flies behind a group of them.

Those PCC's really do look a lot better with a more unified color scheme. Still doesn't really outweigh the general mehness issues though, especially at that price.

I love me some PCCs, but aside from Steamhammer and the Dinobots, I'm not really crazy about any of the combiners.

New clearer pics at TFormers

Looks like Ratbat will have clear wings, or, well... will be fully clear dark energon, erm, purple plastic. For a Minicon, he is also huge - has a larger wingspan than Megs himself. I am hoping to see a close-up soon. The gorilla/Lugnut looks similar to the one that came with the Voyager.

As for the flying Vehicon, how did Dead End say it? "A flying car? How droll..." icon-fire.gif

And Swerve is actually Breakdown, not a head-swap. Guess that'll be his Japanese name?

The redecos just look to be molded in different colors with possibly recolored stickers. They're definitely the same sticker designs, though.

I think when I get these in, the two groups of three that are intended to combine will be artifacts of the Thirteen, in my collection.

Nope they have different number designations in the line, Breakdown was listed a long time ago and Swerve just recently. And Swerve is an Autobot.

The new ones are all quite nice, but I hope that doesn't mean we won't get the remaining molds in some form.

You'd think we would - for example, the YouTube videos posted the other day were showing how to combine four of Ratchet's sword micron together, which is horrendously out of most kids price range if you'd have to buy four Ratchet's to obtain them.
