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.

@  RC85747 : (22 February 2017 - 07:08 AM)

@  RC85747 : (22 February 2017 - 07:04 AM)

@  RC85747 : (22 February 2017 - 07:03 AM)

hascon

@  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?

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:05 PM)

(I haven't read IDW at all please don't sue me)

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:04 PM)

Tyrest? He was chief justice, even :p

@  Bass X0 : (21 February 2017 - 03:24 PM)

I kinda want an Autobot to have the function of "Social Justice Warrior".

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 February 2017 - 12:20 PM)

Even we have limits.

@  Robowang : (21 February 2017 - 12:18 PM)

Good. But let's agree not to do one for Tecumseh.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 February 2017 - 12:12 PM)

@  Robowang : (21 February 2017 - 11:49 AM)

@  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

It seems really wrong to me that you chose, "Asian" for Landmine, when... well... Landmine is explicitly based on Indiana Jones. Like, it even mentions Indiana Jones BY NAME in his profile. Why not make him look like Harrison Ford?

His face appears to be copied off an Udon Street Fighter shot of Ryu.

I'm enjoying the hell out of this! Particularly the use of Furmanisms.

This is a neat take on a concept that doesn't get enough love.

Call of the Primitive

The Transformers: Seeds Of Deception project presents a new episode from the friend project G1 Season 4: "An Italian Detour".
It's Grimlock versus Galvatron, in a story set between Season 3 and Season 4 ("The Rebirth") of the Transformers G1 cartoon!

Thanks! Where would our Tf comics be without Furman's work?

And yes, I always loved Pretenders but it seemed that no one cared about rooting their origins in the Transformers lore.

Eh, you know how it works: at the time, it seemed like a good idea...I mean, avoiding to make a supposedly god-based humanoid shell look like a "Star Wars fame" actor.
Also, there was the "precedent" of Skullgrin, that made us say: movie stars again?
And finally: unfortunately, we just don't have enough support and feedback to get all the details right during the development time icon-hotrod.gif

It's Grimlock & Galvatron versus Unicron's Herald, in a story set between Season 3 and Season 4 ("The Rebirth") of the Transformers G1 cartoon!



Developing the unholy team-up that started in Call of the Primitive, this miniseries expands a never-explored-before subplot, weaving threads from Transformers: The Movie (1986), Season 3 and more!
What will happen when Primacron's newest creations emerge from his Plasma Energy Chamber? Will they be tainted by Unicron's evil or blessed by Primus' knowledge?

Personally, I'd have used the Masterforce appearances for how their shells' faces look.

Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.

The Transformers: Seeds Of Deception presents a new episode from the friend project G1 Season 4: "An Italian Detour".
It's the biggest event of the saga (yet), as The Road To The Rebirth reaches its end, in a story set between Season 3 and Season 4 ("The Rebirth") of the Transformers G1 cartoon!

They are finally here! Emerging from the Plasma Energy of the primordial Chamber/Foundry, Primacron's newest creations are ready to pick an alliance: will they bow to Starscream and Unicron or side with the unexpected All-Are-One alliance of Grimlock and Galvatron?
Also, Primacron's Assistant meets his own destiny--and this spells doom for Wheelie!

Nebulan Prometheus

The Transformers: Seeds Of Deception presents a new episode from the friend project G1 Season 4: "An Italian Detour".

transformers_g1___nebulan_prometheus_p01 transformers_g1___nebulan_prometheus_p02

All the Hive secrets are out! Why was a Lithone among Zarak's Nebulans in the underground Hive Citadel? Why do the Nebulans look so ugly, almost as if they were decaying under our eyes?
Why can they control machines with their minds?
Where did that Fortress Maximus city come from? And what about the Pretender Wars in Nebulos' prehistory?
Plus: the arrival of Cyclonus' Decepticons on Nebulos in 2007!
