@  unitremover : (22 February 2017 - 09:36 PM)

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".

Just hope it's clean or you'll be meeting Pukeahontas.

@  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

Golden Glider's a Rogue? And kinda alive? Interesting. Considering she only slices people up with her skates as her gimmick before, that's a step up. And they used the kid as the Trickster instead of Jesse James, hmm. Maybe I will look this up, thanks icon-hotrod.gif

Yeah, Glider's gotten a major overhaul; is somewhat alive (in a coma but aware of the world) and no more skates. icon-fire.gif She is Cold's driving force in the series making sure she stays alive until she's completely recovers. She's been kinda the heart of the Rogues and is a relationship with Mirror Master due to their common bond of not really able to be part of the world.

Check out Rogues #1 (Flash 23.3) if you want to get an idea of what the Nu52 Rogues are like; Trickster doesn't show up much there due to being in prison for most of it, but the rest are for the whole issue. It goes over the basics of their origins and introduces each to certain extent though Cold and Glider get the most focus. I feel it really does a good job of showing how they're pretty much a family and that they aren't really villains despite being career criminals. (I really love how they demonstrate that in the issue) If you enjoy them in this issue, I definitely say catch up on the Flash series to see each one much more in-depth as each one gets at least one issue to really shine. They're a large part of why I continue to read the Flash series.

Character Descriptions For 'Iris' & 'Detective West' In THE FLASH TV Show


Casting Director David Rapaport confirmed that Barry Allen will have support in the upcoming Flash tv show from Iris West, and Detective West. Well now we have some leaked descriptions, and they've made a few changes to the comic book incarnations of these characters.


Our own Alex Lynch (by way of his site Bludhaven Banter) has come across a couple of character descriptions for the upcoming CW take on The Flash. We saw Barry Allen make his debut on last night's episode of Arrow, but we know that when he gets the spotlight in his own series he'll be joined buy a couple of names familiar to comic readers: Iris and Detective West. What's immediately apparent from the below descriptions is that these versions of the characters will be African American.


IRIS - 22-28 - African-American - As smart as she is beautiful, Iris is in grad school studying psychology. She's also Barry's mile a minute, fast-talking, quick-witted best friend. Her father, Detective West, took in Barry when his mother was murdered, and his father was wrongly accused and imprisoned for her murder. In a tough childhood for Barry, she was the one "not tough" thing. She's unaware of Barry's strong feelings for her.

DETECTIVE WEST - Late 40s to Early 50s - African American -Detective West is an honest, blue-collar cop who's seen it all. A soulful, funny caring father to Iris, and a surrogate father to Barry, West came up through the foster system himself. He took in Barry after his mother's murder and his father's imprisonment. He believes in Barry and supports Barry's efforts to prove his father's innocence.


So a race change -- not uncommon these days, and surely not a big deal. Of course Iris West is Wally West's (another character to take up the Flash mantle) Aunt, so can we assume we'll also see him zip onto out screens at some point?


So would this mean a possible black Wally down the line?

I know very little of the Flash's lore outside of what I've seen of him in the DCAU cartoons, the Young Justice cartoon, and the odd appearance he'd make in whatever mainstream media. So I'll be going into this show with a mostly clean slate.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I hope this is good, as The Flash has a lot of potential as a TV show with Barry being a cop; that's something 'new' to casual viewers, a hero that actually works inside of and with the law rather being a strict vigilante. Try and blend a bit of Cop drama into regular superheroics, as Flash doesn't have a lot of actual powered villains (unless they go Nu52's route, which could be a later season twist). Have him start with regular criminals, maybe some pre-rogues, who later on get weapons and tech to try and be on even footing with the flash, with a season finale being a gathering of them forming the Rogues and being a more serious threat to Flash. Save guys like Zoom/Reverse-Flash and Grodd for much later seasons. Later seasons could also have the Rogues realizing the as long as they are tech-based they can be neutralized from just being separated from their tech and go the new 52 route of using a gene-splicer to give them super powers based on their gadgets.

 

Of course, I'd also go with the occasional 'flash-lite' story and focus on one of, or the entire, Rogues showing how they aren't simple black-and-white villains, and have strict morals about not killing and minimize collateral damage and can be somewhat heroic if they want. Which could really make a Grodd themed 'Gorilla Warfare' type arc really interesting as Flash finds himself allied with them to stop Grodd and his gorillas.

Yeah, Barry was a special guest star who seems to be continuing into next week's episode due to this episode now being a multi-parter, and instead of a speedster superhero he was a forensics investigator who had a bad habit of not being very punctual (arriving at crime scenes a few minutes after everyone else, missing his train, showing up here and there at the last minute, etc.). He also proved quite adept at his job, being more than useful to Oliver's latest hero escapades and outclassing Felicity's usefulness at times. This was probably one of the more likable a versions of Barry Allen out there.

I'm pretty sure he won't get powers on this show. The way they spoke about it they planned for him to do so but decided to split all that off into his own show.

We'll see I guess.
