    So, thanks to TFW2005 member griffin-of-oz, I finally got the UPC barcodes for the Walmart exclusive Autobots Unite Legion 2-packs.

    TFW2005 member Diecast G2 entered them into the Walmart app and... nothing. Not even an unfinished placeholder page like the one for Flip & Change Bumblebee (who has already been out in stores for over two months at this point). Yikes.

    No photos. That's the same status the Flip & Change Bumblebee listing currently has, and he's been out in stores for over two months.

    Thanks anyways!

    That 3 pack Bumblebee set looks. Neat. It's got my favorite Bumblebee figures too. I think Hasbro is getting better with what the fans want, and the quality they want it in. With the Upcoming Power of The Primes figures I feel that those will sell out quick. I really want, The Dinobots, Optimus Prime Orion Pax Evolution Pack, Jazz, Starscream(maybe. I'm still debating that over his arms) I think I might get Rodimus too.

    They're both already in the archive, but I've just seen the second waves of TLK 1-Step and Knight Armor Turbo Changers at UK retail in Sainsbury's.

    I think I caught all the NYCC reveals, or did I miss any?

    Great work, Nevermore (and support staff!)! :thumb  This thread is very helpful.

    Is there any way to separate the lines better? Movie section, PotP section, 1-step section, etc.? Just for ease of reading/finding pertinent info on a particular release/figure.

    I could theoretically turn this thread into an index only, and use what's now the "archive" threads for both old and new stuff. On the upside, the ongoing list in this thread is currently as empty as it's possibly never been before.

    As empty as it's never been before? :confused: 

    I think a Generations-exclusive thread would be beneficial (and possibly more popular). But it's your call, as this is your time and effort (they should really pay you a fee!).

    The TF Wiki is very helpful for tracking individual toy lines, so you need not re-arrange your thread on my behalf! :)  I just find myself scrolling a lot, and when I can't find a particular Generations toy, it's salt in the wound to see so many movie, 1-steps, etc. also listed on here! :banghead: 

    But as always, we appreciate your fine work, Nevermore! :thumb  :thumb  :thumb

    I would really rather see it keep the format it has here. As a collector who buys mostly Generations, but cherry picks from the other "main lines" like RID, TLK, etc. this thread is really, really convenient for helping keep a pulse on a lot of stuff at once, especially stuff that might not get front paged by the news staff. If I've missed an item or something just never made it to the states like some of the Platinum releases last year, I can use this thread as reference for who DID have it and maybe track it down that way much easier than through my own cyber-sleuthing. Even if its something I may not care about like Allspark Tech, I can still keep up to date on what is considered new on the off chance I find it at retail and can let other fans know in the sightings threads or news board that they're now available in the wild.

    If you want to go right to something specific like Slugslinger, or Thermidor, or whatever you can easily just do Control+F/CMD+F on desktop or "Find in Page" on mobile to get right to the item of interest without having to scroll through listings for things that may not tickle your fancy like 1-Step Scorn or Activator Strongarm.


    @Nevermore still no luck with an Amazon US listing for RID Bludgeon/Twinferno/Thermidor I'm guessing?

    Okay, here's the deal. I'm currently having some health issues which are related to my insane sense of perfectionism and dedication to the cause. It would really help if at least some of the people who are frequenting this thread were to learn some of my... how do I say, more advanced "tricks" and apply them instead of everyone permanently relying on me doing all the work for them. I'm not a magician, none of what I do is some secret voodoo. I'm more than willing to pass on my knowledge.

    Make no mistake: This is not a complaint, nor is it a demand. If people are willing to help out, I'm going to share some of the things I learned. None of it is rocket science, it just requires sitting down for a moment and trying out something new. Anyone in?

    You want to help out? I'd really appreciate that if you're willing to commit to it. Just let me know and I'll share some of my tools with you.
