So... who wants Krispy Kreme donuts?

@  Paladin : (25 March 2017 - 06:50 AM)

i think you can sync profiles from both to this site.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (25 March 2017 - 05:04 AM)

So I'm looking around at my settings at the moment, and I'm noticing "Manage Facebook" and "Manage Twitter," but I have to log in with those to see anything. What do those offer?

@  Robowang : (24 March 2017 - 04:38 PM)

Thanks.

@  Jalaguy : (24 March 2017 - 03:38 PM)

A gun was definitely jumped, we'll make sure it doesn't happen again. Big apology to everyone who wanted to stay spoiler-free.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 March 2017 - 03:08 PM)

Oh hey the news post in question turned up on my Tumblr dash, too. Thanks for that. Thanks a lot.

@  Robowang : (24 March 2017 - 10:29 AM)

I was actually looking forward to playing along with the surprise aspect this time, yes. I'm not heartbroken or anything, but it would have been fun. It's more the lack of consideration by some newb mod.

@  EShadowP : (24 March 2017 - 10:25 AM)

The only silver lining to this being the final TFSS is the fact that I no longer have to explain to people why some of us actually ENJOY THE @#$%ing SURPRISE ASPECT OF THE SUBSCRIPTION.

@  Robowang : (24 March 2017 - 07:24 AM)

Wow, not that big a deal, but the big front page article revealing the TFSS figures is pretty douchey considering a lot of people were discussing the surprise element and there was already a spoiler thread set up. Nice move.

@  Robowang : (23 March 2017 - 08:45 AM)

Yikes. Sounds more like GTA.

@  Dracula : (23 March 2017 - 08:42 AM)

Someone drove a car through a crowd of people and then into the front gates of parliament, I think, and stabbed a police officer before being killed by other officers

@  Robowang : (23 March 2017 - 08:10 AM)

I coincidentally watched London Has Fallen yesterday afternoon, heard an offhand remark about a terrorist attack in London on the radio yesterday afternoon, and somehow put the two together in my sleepy haze. I need to read what actually happened.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 March 2017 - 11:21 PM)

That's relieving to hear.

@  Jalaguy : (22 March 2017 - 05:33 PM)

All good here, I don't work that far into the city.

@  Bass X0 : (22 March 2017 - 05:00 PM)

I'm way up north, so yeah.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 March 2017 - 02:34 PM)

I just saw the news. Are all of you Britons on this board alright?

@  Telly : (22 March 2017 - 01:20 PM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 March 2017 - 12:25 PM)

I didn't know he was meeting the Fantastic Four's enemies.

@  Bass X0 : (22 March 2017 - 12:18 PM)

I might watch Kong: Skrull Island this weekend.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 March 2017 - 10:48 AM)

(At least I'm assuming it was "instead." I guess I don't know for sure that Eddie Murphy's character wouldn't have been Kirk's love interest.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 March 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I dunno about that. Star Trek IV was pretty great but I'm haunted by the knowledge that at one point instead of a love interest it was going to have Eddie Murphy.

@  Paladin : (22 March 2017 - 07:28 AM)

you know a remake/movie's in trouble when adding Eddie Murphy to it might make things BETTER...

@  unluckiness : (22 March 2017 - 06:45 AM)

Is Eddie Murphy still Mushu?

@  MEDdMI : (21 March 2017 - 08:30 PM)

what....? b-but that song's so awesome! *lookd up info* oh, it's just "for now", but could change since it's not planned for release until 2018.

@  Waspinator : (21 March 2017 - 08:22 PM)

Oh wow, you're not kidding: they're actually planning to remake Mulan without the songs. Idiots.

@  NightViper : (21 March 2017 - 01:54 PM)

If they had a sword they would not get bored. They would not get bored, that horrible Horde. They would find a lord - a lord and his ward - and use their sword to slice the lord. Yes slice the lord just like a gourd! Then the ward they turn themselves toward that horrible Horde. That horrible terrible deplorable Mongol Horde. And they would not be bored if they had a sword.

@  Paladin : (21 March 2017 - 01:07 PM)

trying to decide if autocracy was an attempt at an original story or just an excuse to quote the '86 movie for the gajillionth time. time to move on fom it (even if you did have a hand in writing it)!

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 04:38 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 March 2017 - 03:40 PM)

You're not missing anything. Either in the "quality of the stories themselves" way OR in the "adds to the greater universe" way.

@  Dracula : (20 March 2017 - 03:30 PM)

I still haven't read the -acies despite owning most of them in print...

@  Dracula : (20 March 2017 - 03:29 PM)

I like Origins, I feel like the later stories add to it and make it better than what it was when written.

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 02:57 PM)

@jalaguy-well if i get bored with the stories i can always skip them lol

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 March 2017 - 02:53 PM)

Origins felt like it was Megatron telling his own story and leaving out the parts he didn't like.

So sick of horrible distribution. And crappy movie toys making it worse. Or in these cases, canceling / postponing / TJ Maxx-ifying good toys.

I will chuckle endlessly if the fan-made figure is one destined to never be released, or at least in the US.

 

After seven years of this happening, you'd think Hasbro would know to make the last wave completely a refresher case by now.

After seven years of this happening, you'd think Hasbro would know to make the last wave completely a refresher case by now.

 

I think the final wave of Beast Hunters deluxes (AKA the upsized Legions that only a handful of people seem to actually want) indicates that Hasbro has learned not to put anything incredibly desirable in the final wave of a line.

 

I think the problem might be that someone underestimated how long it would take these figures to hit retail.  We're looking at essentially three waves' worth of product (Rattrap/Tankor/Crosscut, Arcee/Chromia, and Windblade/Nightbeat/Jhiaxus) that really should have been part of the big Dark Cybertron comic/figure push, but won't be thanks to AOE eating all the Generations slots for a while.

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?

That would appear to be the plan! But since we don't know precisely when "after the movie crap ends" is, everybody is assuming it is "never ever in any form no matter what" because that allows the greatest amount of flipping out and raging.

If Windblade can't be released this year, I'd hope that Hasbro could work something out to release a preview release of it at Toys R Us or Hasbro Toy Shop. The figures are possibly manufactured already, but it'd be nice if they could squeeze out a jazzed up special release deco withmore paint apps for such a release. Just wishful thinking on my part, though.

 

It's gonna be really odd if most of the 30th anniversary figures are released in 2013 and 2015 and not 2014.

Yup.  And the leftover alternate heads that were never touched, like Hardhead and Lugnut's extra.  I wouldn't bet on Crosscut ever showing up again, at least at retail.  Probably not Chromia either.

 

This is sure to be brought up at Botcon and I wonder if they'll even be aware of this stuff happening as they are rarely aware of true distribution issues.

Someone should bring up WIndblade at least, what with the whole comic mini-series tie-in to something that won't be happening.

Oh wow, this sucks. Crossing my fingers that these really do eventually come out at regular domestic retail in the end (and aren't relegated to some "good enough" release at Ross/TJMaxx/etc.)
Also I wonder what this means for Swerve, Cosmos, and Tailgate? They won't exactly fit on the shelves with all that movie stuff.

To echo Shadoman, yeah looks like all the money I would have spent on Hasbro's Generations product is going towards Takara's Ultra Magnus instead!
