didn't know the reference before searching, but the Lizard Queen & fermentarium thing are from Simpsons. https://en.m.wikiped.../Selma's_Choice

What the hug's a fermentarium?

'Dawn of the Predacus' not your cup of tea? Try TRANSFORMERS: UNITY for your BotCon 2016 comic.

Given how TM Megs suffers from GPS, I'm sure many people would jump at a reissue.

Out of all the hypothetical Beast Wars things, the one I'd like is a leader class Transmetal Megatron

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:18 PM)

They'd make a superb duo. If TT drew the line under BW MPs after those two, I'd be perfectly content.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:15 PM)

I personally hope we get an MP BW Megs, especially if he has a rubber ducky he can hold, yeeess.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:13 PM)

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:03 PM)

It certainly has, man. If it wasn't for BW I probably wouldn't be here.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 10:15 PM)

Yeah, I threw a link in the Beast Wars Birthday thread. I'm keen to hear as many thoughts on it as possible. The last month has proven just how dear to the hearts of fans BW is.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 10:04 PM)

I looked at it a few days ago, actually, I saw you post it somewhere here on the forums.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:43 PM)

No, they're certainly after their own ends. Cheers for taking a look at it, Smokey. I appreciate it.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:36 PM)

Well, at least you twisted things around so the Tripredacus council aren't minions of Unicron.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:30 PM)

With Primus and Unicron, it was my aim for it to double as a celebration of the 30th anniversary of TF:TM.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:27 PM)

It's... Better than Dawn of the Predacus, at least. I could do without the whole Primus v. Unicron thing, that's been done to death.

something about street dates I think...

@  Pennpenn : (30 April 2016 - 10:25 AM)

Any particular reason it's not available in some of the ones I see more often like BBTS and TFSource and so on?

@summer, I was wondering why it looks like an ordinary TF group instead of being about TFWiki.

@  zephyrX9 : (30 April 2016 - 12:18 AM)

ok so either ages three and up sold out of victorion or their system is confusing so i guess im getting computron instead. rip my dream of ladybots everywhere

@  Summer : (29 April 2016 - 02:07 PM)

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.

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?

Ok if I were to be able to buy this toy normally I would in a heartbeat. Hasbro dropped the ball making this a Con exclusive. It's beautiful as Sky-Byte. My biggest curiosity however is the Predacon marking on him? Are we gonna have a crossover event with Sky-byte coming in from R.I.D.? Is this a Beast Wars era Predacon from the future? Man the biggest thing I actually look forward to from botcon every year is the Comic and this year could look to be interesting.

I'm not a fan of voting on peoples posts. it just seems very passive aggressive to click 'down vote' and not add anything to the thread. and up votes are exactly the same. to my mind the whole point of a forum is discussion and being able to just easily agree or disagree takes the discussion out of the equation.

Does it really matter?

People are excited about this toy because it's Sky-Byte, the hilarious poet from RID. The "official story" could make him into some totally separate character from another dimension (or an analogue or predecessor from the same one, or whatever), and I think 99% of purchasers won't care and will go on considering him to be the Sky-Byte from RID in just a new, different body. SEE ALSO: ROTF Bludgeon, a meaningless nobody who never did anything interesting or important but that everybody loves because they see him as G1 Bludgeon.

I think it's supposed to be the G1/G2 universe counterpart to the RiD character, so he will probably have a similar personality. He's supposed to be one of the earliest Predacons in this continuity. This story still eventually leads to Beast Wars you know, which comes after G2. I hope we see his boss as Razorclaw (in Botcon exclusive form).

Well RID/CR is linked to G1 via Kiss Players, so it could be the same guy (though I think Pete said he was the G1 universe Sky Byte).

Personally I don't hate it, but he has way too much eyebrow/forehead space for my tastes. The helmet really should extend down a little more; this way it makes him look like he's some dude with shaved eyebrows.

I'd say that's the biggest change in this figure from the original toy, and the anime, and kinda throws off the figure...

Well, to be fair it's based heavily on the Stormbringer Bludgeon. But yeah, people were excited about a new Bludgeon even when it was a redeco of Wreckage, because Bludgeon actually needed a good update and the status of the Destructicon version as "good" was highly questionable. People like Sky-byte, but it's not like his original toy was a brickish sub-Basic with a goofy-looking rubber shell.

worked out fine for Skywarp!

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."
