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

@  Bass X0 : (18 February 2017 - 05:28 AM)

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.

Because we have a dedicated HTS thread already, and I figure this is better than cluttering the forum with new threads every time something noteworthy happens in BBTS land.

 

To start with, I just received this e-mail regarding the previously-solicited Rattrap/Tankor/Crosscut preorder:

 

Hasbro has just informed us that the Deluxe Wave 03 Case assortment has been cancelled. This case contained Rattrap, Tankor and Crosscut. They have confirmed that all three figures will be released, but they will be spread over various future assortments. Rattrap and Tankor have been solicited in a new assortment, but Crosscut has been delayed and will be released in a future and currently unknown assortment. Due to this matter we have adjusted all existing preorders for this set of 3 to a set of 2. This new set of 2 will consist of Tankor and Rattrap only, and all existing preorders will receive this set for $31.99 respectively. Please note that the price per figure remains the same as it would for the original set of 3 figures (about $16 per figure). We apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause and we are hopeful that everyone will enjoy the new assortment variety.

 

Man, that Skids mold is cursed or something.  First the issues with Wave 1 of this year's Generations, now this.


Interested in getting TFSS 3.0 Carzap, Nacelle, or G2 Starscream for $50 plus shipping?  PM me if so.

And the hits keep on coming:

 

 

Hasbro has just informed us that the Deluxe Wave 05 Case assortment has been cancelled. This case contained Arcee, Chromia, Waspinator and Scoop. They have confirmed that Arcee and Chromia are still going to be released, but have been pushed to a future and currently unknown assortment. We have since been asked to remove the listing from our website until further notice, but your preorder will still remain on file. We truly apologize for this inconvenience.

As always please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns and our Customer Service department (service@bigbadtoystore.com) will be happy to assist you. Thank you for your understanding and support to BigBadToyStore!

I was kind of wondering when exactly they were going to be putting all these figures out, since the AOE Deluxes are explicitly part of the Generations line.

Hopefully this means the lines will actually be released later and not a few slip out so they don't bother to ever have them really hit retail like the previous 3 movies.

Here is the listing for the mentioned set of Rattrap and Tankor. It's $31.99 on my preordered products page, as promised, but $39.99 if you go to order it now, which I guess means they're expecting a worse case assortment than before.

Also as promised, I still have a preorder listed for Arcee and Chromia.

Maybe they just want to change the packaging so it's in line with everything else... I hope.

Aw, man, I was more excited for Crosscut than anything else this year. I didn't even bother buying Skids. I really hope he ends up slotted in somewhere...

Yeah I thought Hasbro had gone loco if they thought Generations would continue while AoE was going on. 

 

TakaraTomy didn't even bother trying.  :D

I actually pre-ordered Chromia and Arcee when the swerve/cosmos scare was going on thinking something like this was going to happen.

My BBTS preorder page for Arcee and Chromia shows "3rd Quarter 2014" now, but that's probably meaningless.

If they do still end up being easily available then this shouldn't be too much of a problem, but without being able to see into the future it is a bit worrying.

Wouldnt it make sense to just save all the molds from these two waves and release them after the movie crap ends? That way they didn't waste all that money on creating these toys for nothing?

The movie lines can felate Omega Supreme's rocket. That is the scale at which they suck for haphazardly causing things like this to happen.
