The TFWiki Facebook group has long since been abandoned by the actual TFWiki moderators, and there's little to no affiliation with the actual site.

SAVE THE BUNNIES!!!!

@  MEDdMI : (29 April 2016 - 05:59 AM)

I know I said I like steely buns, but I didn't literally mean buns made out of steel!

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 April 2016 - 05:20 AM)

Alligators are really scary, because they can eat you. But you know what's even scarier than alligators? Flying alligators. With laser vision. Scariest environment imaginable.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 April 2016 - 02:24 AM)

Rook has a very firm butt. ;)

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 April 2016 - 02:20 AM)

But his butt is down there, and that's what I want to look at.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 April 2016 - 02:19 AM)

Rook's eyes are up here, Foffy.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 April 2016 - 02:14 AM)

Obviously. Rook couldn't very well win the swimsuit competition while he was stuck being a leg, now could he?

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 April 2016 - 02:12 AM)

....of joy, because he's no longer stuck holding up a heavy combiner and can now go do his own thing?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 April 2016 - 02:09 AM)

You hear that? That's the sound of Rook crying bitter, bitter tears.

@  Telly : (29 April 2016 - 12:58 AM)

@  Dracula : (28 April 2016 - 09:09 AM)

All I can say is their preorder and invoice system seems to work fine.

@  Dracula : (28 April 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Oddly I just placed an order with them this week. But I haven't received the item (Victorion) yet, so I can't really give you a review

@  zephyrX9 : (27 April 2016 - 11:46 PM)

anyone here ever shopped at Ages Three And Up? If so, how is their service?

@  MEDdMI : (27 April 2016 - 08:46 PM)

@  Telly : (27 April 2016 - 04:43 PM)

my black and white world view has been shattered into so many tiny pieces now. like little packing peanuts tossed into a river my mind is scattered. AND ITS ALL YOUR FAULT!

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 April 2016 - 04:38 PM)

Don't say it Foffy. Don't say it...

@  Ms Virion : (27 April 2016 - 04:35 PM)

I can attest to that. I've seen his recording equipment.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 April 2016 - 04:30 PM)

THE DOCTOR WAS ONE OF THE VOICES

@  Telly : (27 April 2016 - 04:30 PM)

but the doctor told me the voices wouldnt come back anymore...

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 April 2016 - 04:26 PM)

We are your conscience. You do everything we tell you to. Now slap yourself in the face.

@  Telly : (27 April 2016 - 04:22 PM)

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 April 2016 - 04:16 PM)

No. No one remembers anything. Everyone has amnesia.

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2016 - 03:51 PM)

Does anyone remember Revolution X?

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2016 - 03:40 PM)

It's in Connecticut.

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2016 - 03:39 PM)

Now go to Pym Falls.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 April 2016 - 03:30 PM)

@  Smokey : (27 April 2016 - 03:28 PM)

I got the Deluxe from Japan. I lost patience waiting for Hasbro to release him.

@  Lightbright : (27 April 2016 - 02:40 PM)

It's an evolution revolution!

@  Kalidor : (27 April 2016 - 01:32 PM)

I enjoyed Revolution. Was a good show.

ETERNAL PUNISHMENT TO THESE MORTALS IF THEY DARE SPARE SHOKARACT A RAMJET.


Aren't you supposed to be not existing right now?


SHOKARACT DOES NOT RETURN UNIVERSE'S PHONE CALLS.

For some reason I read both these posts in Lrrr's (ruler of Omicron Persei 8) voice.


It's very good to hear Japan's getting it, I do shutter after thinking about the dubbing they gave Beast Wars and what they could do to Animated, but I also think Animated has enough silly moments that they wouldn't need to.

After 8 months of sitting on my DVR I finally watched Endgame, I don't know why I waited that long, but it was awesome! I'd love to someway get more whether it's Direct to Video or if it does really well in Japan we get another season from them (Just as long as Isenberg and Wyatt have lots of involvement in it).

Toy wise, I can hope for Sari, but I doubt it. At the least I'd love at least an Activators Slipstream, and I saw on 2005 maybe they'd make Wasp with a new head.

EDIT - and for the record? Editing out parts of episodes for time in the TV airing?

WE DO THAT TOO.


You missed the point. Those edits weren't made so the series could fit Japanese TV timeslots. Those edits were made because Takara wanted longer opening and ending songs. They cut a minute and a half of footage from each episode to accomodate "WE HOPE THE ONLY WOOOORRRRLLLLD!"

Because in Japan, they value J-pop over content, apparently.

Are you saying you don't hope the only world?

So if Bulkhead is now Ironhide, then what are they going to call Ironhide over there? You know...the guy drawn to look like Ironhide?

Ha.

I guess can see why they did it for Animated. They wanted the main characters to all share names with the main Movie Autobots and all that.

But it won't take long for a guy who looks like G1 Ironhide and can turn his hide into iron to show up...and then what're they gonna do?

Oh. Right. Name him "Roadbuster".
