Wouldn't IDW Megatron kind of count since his main reason for instigating the Great War was to overthrow the Functionist social order?

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?

@  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)

@  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)

@  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.

Too good at his jobs would have caused applejack an even bigger problem. Then she wouldn't have a legitimate reason to see him off. Not wanting him to help is strictly personal, and if he was too good, the rest of the apple family would have wanted him to stay because he was useful. Not wanting him to help AND having him be legitimately bad at the work: now everyone wants him gone.

It would have changed the writing of the entire episode basically.

And probably for the better. Having to struggle with wanting to do the right thing but being reluctant to give up the free help would have been a fun twist on the concept, fitting for a show where the characters are expected to learn some moral lesson every week. I don't even remember what the moral was, this time.

Not disagreeing with you, just calling it as I see it. Frankly, I feel that spike got the short end of the stick on this being painted as incompetent outside the library. Sure he's had a few accidents, but he's mostly skilled at his tasks, and its not like he's specialized, its general skills. We already know he can cook, clean, make home repairs and keep things categorized to an anal retentive's satisfaction.

I know it was all for the sake of the episode: to give genuine reason for applejack to want things back to status quo and make it plain for the targeted audience. Still, sucks for spike. He gets enough crap thrown at him without him doing it to himself.

Fluttershy's "I said NO!" before wrecking Rainbow Dash is a clear indication that she's in assertive mode. Just look at the sudden determination on her face before doing it. There's no way that's not intended to be assertive Fluttershy. It looks like something out of Putting Your Hoof Down, also written by Williams. "You push me out the door, I drop you to the floor."

Fluttershy only wrecked Rainbow because she was between her and the exit. Spike isn't that aggressive. He's also not as hard to escape from. At worst, he'd be like the paparazzi from Green Isn't Your Color, and even that's a stretch.

I don't think Spike would drive Fluttershy crazy. She'd say no until Spike gave up, and she'd get assertive if she had to.

This episode, among others, has shown that Spike is very tenacious. He wouldn't give up just from someone saying no, and he'd eventually come up with useful suggestions. He'd probably start doing stuff without her knowledge before giving up.

Look at the determined expression. Look at the breathing as she starts getting pumped. This is assertive Fluttershy about to rock.

That's cool, but irrelevant. Spike wouldn't press her like that, and wouldn't stop her from running. If she did pull something like that, it would just make both of them feel bad, and make Spike feel like he owes her even more. And Fluttershy would probably feel obligated to put up with him after that.

Just off the top of my head, he could offer to do her in town shopping, something that she doesn't particularly care for. She'd probably have him count animals or plants, the same kind of busywork that Applejack assigned, and something that he didn't screw up.

Alternatively, she could go for a back scratch after a day of dealing with Angel.

That didn't work when anyone else tried it, and Fluttershy isn't a particularly skilled orator. Spike's code says that he needs to pay her back, so he has to pay her back. This wasn't about perceived nobility, it was about Spike needing to repay a debt that he owed. He doesn't care if she thinks he's still noble or not, it is something that he has to do because that is what he believes in.

Seriously, why do you think that Fluttershy would be able to talk him down when no one else could? She's easily the worst talker, and has no special skill with persuasion.

.... How is that situation vaguely similar? Fluttershy used The Stare on him because he was threatening her friends, and got him to leave while he was still reeling, rather than actually talking him down. Spike isn't threatening her friends, and he's actually trying to help her. If anything, Spike would be putting the guilt trip on her.

She did use The Stare on him while scolding him, but not while calming him down afterwards. Recall that she did get him to stop crying before he left, and she did it just by talking to him. Don't dismiss her abilities. Spike putting the guilt trip on her might work (it usually works when Rainbow Dash does it), but she might respond by talking to him and telling him he's still a noble dragon and whatever else he'd need to hear. She is good at that.

What Spike needs to hear is that she's let him help her. The red adult was, well, kinda dim, and less mature than Spike. Fluttershy was able to comfort him like he was a wild animal because he was acting like a wild animal,* and being good with animals is her talent. That wouldn't work with Spike, who actually has some reasoning behind his actions beyond losing his temper or being to lazy to move. She wasn't even able to control the crusaders, who are far younger and less mature than Spike.

*Dragons have a sad sad habit of living down to Equestrian stereotypes about them.

While there were some funny jokes and interpersonal relations (Rainbow Dash is best sitcom neighbor), I think it made tow major missteps. I think briefly noting that he was being overzealous or perhaps he was still shaken up by the attack would have helped make him seem less OOC. Likewise, it would have been better if instead of Twilight making Dragon Code seem like a known thing, call it out as something of Spike's own creation.

I really like the way Rarity was handled. Her friends often think she's ridiculous, but here she gets to show that being dramatic is an actual skill. We may not have gotten to see far into her acting lessons, but we did get to see her perform, and she proved that she knows what she's talking about. She was great. And she was so proud of herself for it. icon-fire.gif

This episode is supposed to take place after Just for Sidekicks, which actually explains some stuff. Namely, after realizing just what a heel he was in Just, he decided to try to get his act together, and drew up a Noble Dragon Code that he would try to live up to. But since he wrote it up in response to his greedy actions, he went way overboard in the other direction.

Forgot about the rearranged episodes. That actually makes a ton of sense.
