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

@  Smokey : (01 May 2016 - 04:53 PM)

What the hug's a fermentarium?

@  Verno : (01 May 2016 - 04:34 PM)

'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.

@  Pennpenn : (01 May 2016 - 12:32 AM)

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)

Bring on October and MP Primal so the anniversary celebrations can begin.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:06 PM)

oh hey lok its tecs birthday

@  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.

@  Telly : (30 April 2016 - 09:25 PM)

like paladin says, bbts and the like probly have them (or will get them soon) but are waiting for the hasbro release date before putting up pages

@  Paladin : (30 April 2016 - 05:10 PM)

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?

@  unluckiness : (30 April 2016 - 09:55 AM)

Might want to wash your hands after handling the toys if you order from the latter.

@  tffan01 : (30 April 2016 - 05:42 AM)

@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.

On first glance, the Protectobot APC and Tank seem weird. But that's only because we're used to G1. "Protect" doesn't necessarily mean rescue vehicles. You can protect things with armored vehicles too!

Woo, I really like the Destron team. Great colors there.
The protectobots are ok. It's weird having a jet, tank thing, and half-track thing on a rescue team.
The other repaints look ok, but nothing special there.

Interesting that they switched the Minicons entirely around. Especially since Darkstream can't hold Razorbeam in axe mode. Really. I've tried.

Loving putting Caliburst with Searchlight tho. Great combo there.

I love the Destrons, but the Protectobots are kinda awkward. I would have preffered the arm jet and the jeep to go with them, but I suspect Hasbro wanted to mix up the limbs a bit more.

But are they a rescue team. Sure, the G1 dudes were all vehicles... but what in the name 'Protectobots' forces them to be rescue? They're protectors. Tanks serve that role.

I loved the Destron Team at BotCon and I love them even more now. It helps that I think Huffer is the best PCC figure.

It does look like the Caliburst minicon goes better with the Backwind scout. Least, IMO.

The Huffer mold looks amazing in the Dark Convoy colors. Destrons are a must buy.

I didn't know they were going to swap the commanders and 5-pack leaders. Makes it easier to skip the Skyburst recolor as he's the weakest of Wave 1 IMO.

I'm liking this line more and more. It's great to have so much "fiddle value" in such small toys.

Ah, so I guess Bombshock's repaint ISN'T Bludgeon influenced like I thought from the slides at Botcon.

Not really into any of these new colors, so I'm glad I already picked up Bombshock. At least they can split up the Minicons and drones in any way they want so everything isn't completely a straight up repaint.

I do find it disturbing that 3/5 of the Protectobots are vehicles of destruction.
