Something I only just "got" last night: Of course IDW's GB Blackrock is associated with Onyx Prime. Onyx is a black rock.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 January 2018 - 07:37 AM)

Bet a lot of military people won't want to work this monday. ;(

@  Pennpenn : (21 January 2018 - 07:27 AM)

It seems sort of intuitive for a lot of people because it's the first day in the week that you're working.

@  Nevermore : (21 January 2018 - 04:54 AM)

Germany considers Monday the first day of the week.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

The judge obviously had a more material motive than the one he claimed, there need to be some serious investigation of that case.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 05:04 PM)

The reason is even worse. :(

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 04:34 PM)

That moron is a shame to his profession.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 09:34 AM)

I just think a Judge going on and Jury Tampering, trying to make the Jury think a sex taffiker is innocent is sickening. *won't say why he did that as that goes in P&R*

@  Sabrblade : (20 January 2018 - 09:21 AM)

Heh, the schedules for my work weeks begin with Saturday

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2018 - 07:01 AM)

Thing about the US is... you can say that any time you want as much as you want. You're still going to get shot, but it might not be because you said that though.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 02:20 AM)

You just did.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 02:18 AM)

Can I just say that right now... I hate the USA?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

There are languages where the days are named for numbers and Sunday is "one". Like Arabic.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 01:31 AM)

Isn't it sort of a religious thing for Sunday to be the start of the week but most people just go with the first day they go to work for the week?

@  unitremover : (20 January 2018 - 01:02 AM)

I feel like I've known plenty of Americans who'd say Monday is the first day of the week.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

Personally Monday will always be the first day of the week for me. The notion that Sunday is somehow the first day of the week seems completely nonsensical to me.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

I'm fairly sure it is in Australia, but that tends to get blurred because of US influence.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:19 AM)

(It's Sunday here in the U.S.)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:18 AM)

Anyone here live in a country where Monday is considered the first day of the week?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 08:40 PM)

Maybe?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

But do they search barf?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

Under water, the fish don't stink.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 07:42 PM)

I read that at first as "Everyone is a fish...."

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2018 - 06:08 PM)

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 05:56 PM)

I parsed it as "search barf" at first.

@  Nevermore : (19 January 2018 - 11:40 AM)

Netherlands? We got one hell of a storm here in Germany the other day too.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 04:54 PM)

What ya getting?

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

I hope we at least get pictures of the ladybots sometime in the near future to tide us over.

We'll probably see them at Botcon, but it'd be cool if they showed up sooner.

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!
Looking for Combiner Hunters Chromia and Arcee! If you can help plz pm me
