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.

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

@  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.

*sigh*
Whatever. Just goes to show I won't be posting over there.

I'll go ahead and say I didn't mind the review. I gave him a small positive comment and said something about him posting it the same week as Botcon. Really until you guys started going off on how he like the Bay film I didn't mind the small amount of Bay bashing he did here. Either way I didn't mind the review. As a casual fan as he stated before I can see him having a slightly more positive spin on G1 than some of us have who have nitpicked the series till the cons come home. I'd actually would have preferred him doing this as himself instead of the costume really but it was fun to see him try. This wasn't one of Doug's best efforts by far but I'm not expecting top quality when it comes to any of the Nostalgia Critics reviews.

The biggest issue I have with the review is that it wasn't funny. I watch this guy for the laughs. I expect him to tear things apart, even things i love. This review wasn't funny and was quite boring. That runs counter to what I expect from him so yeah, I'm gonna voice a very negative opinion. I want him to bash it because that's where his brand of funny is to be found.

I did like the bit with Soundwave detailing his dreams and plans; mainly because that and the cutting back and forth to Megatron listening just reminded me of Space Ghost...

It was a mildly funny joke that dragged on far too long.

That said, it IS strange how through 3 seasons, they never managed to give Soundwave ANY characterisation.

from the many animation error-produced seekers (what is the fan-name of the light purple guy?)

Eh? Those weren't errors. The generic seekers were intentionally there, as you can see in the script.
The lack of their appearance on Earth in part 1 (they were even supposed to be seen getting out of the Ark) and after part 3, those are certainly errors.
And miscolored generic seeker that spotted Wheeljack and Bumblebee.


I meant them being on Earth, not on Cybertron. Even as a kid I always wondered about that... and how Reflector could sometimes have 5 or more components. icon-fire.gif

As for Soundwave, sadly all he did was being Megatron's yes-man. And Shockwave was the same, sans the cool voice. icon-hotrod.gif

No, I think Shockwave had one of the best voices in all the G1 cartoon.

Easily the best voice out of all of Corey Burton's characters. I love it! When you get older and realize how much Frank Welker did, he gets easy to pick out on Transformers. Corey Burton, not so much!

Really? I met a LOT of people (not TF fans) who told me they always thought Shockwave sounded... totally gay.

I would have preferred if Burton used his Brainiac voice for Shockwave. I later learned he was going for a David Warner impression, but IMHO he only got that right for Animated Shockwave.

Ever seen Tron? For some reason, he chose to mimic Warner's being-tortured/in-pain voice.

Indeed. IMHO he's the best Megatron voice. I was never that fond of Welker, and David Kaye is suited for a totally different, mastermind Megatron that BW Megs is. I had hoped Hasbro would use him on Prime as well, but nostalgia factor won.

Yeah. This was bad. And I LIKE TNC. He and TAVN are the only internet celebrities I find humorous. Couldn't make it past the introduction.

The decision to do the review "in-character" was the deatblow before all the praising of G1 and bashing of Bay. The terrible Peter Cullen impression resurrected the video just so it could die a second time.

At least it isn't Linkara. Linkara is like watching Dr. Laurence Erhardt without a Clayton Forrester to reel in his obnoxiousness.

I've noticed a distinct lack of quality from all the TGWTG reviewers as of late. I worry if as a group they aren't getting more focused on attending conventions and riding the wave of their success rather then maintain the quality of their output. I've noticed a lot more "From Convention" videos from Doug of late.

You'd think they'd make more of an effort with the way their ad revenue money isn't as constant as it once was.
