...... *MED's hand appears in the fermentarium, getting closer to TMM, along with the Jaws theme*

@  TheMightyMol... : (01 May 2016 - 01:19 PM)

I wasn't going to go in naked, but it rotted off all my clothes. And then I was already in anyway, so......

@  Paladin : (01 May 2016 - 12:32 PM)

for the last time, stop swimming naked in the fermentarium.

@  MEDdMI : (01 May 2016 - 09:17 AM)

I bring you fresh crickets and worms, my Queen. Your basking lamp is ready for you afterwards.

@  Autobot Bubbs : (01 May 2016 - 09:13 AM)

I AM THE LIZARD QUEEN!!!!!

@  Locoman : (01 May 2016 - 08:59 AM)

I still want a cheetor figure that actually looks like the version we got on the tv show.

@  zephyrX9 : (01 May 2016 - 01:15 AM)

my salt in not getting victorion has turned into salt waiting for TR rewind to go up for preorder. ho-hum

@  Verno : (01 May 2016 - 01:05 AM)

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)

i went off when i saw unicron

@  Patchouli Kn... : (30 April 2016 - 09:04 PM)

You shall not pass.

@  Touch My Thighs : (30 April 2016 - 09:01 PM)

Pass.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 08:09 PM)

Read my Beast Wars 20th Anniversary comic book pitch to IDW -- TRANSFORMERS: DEICIDE

@  Telly : (30 April 2016 - 08:00 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.

@  Paladin : (30 April 2016 - 05:48 AM)

Victorion is also listed in-stock here http://www.ajstoyche...tset_p_102.html and here http://www.poopoopan...Set_p_4832.html

@  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.

@  Paladin : (29 April 2016 - 07:58 AM)

Willis needs to make rent again?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 April 2016 - 06:46 AM)

Oh, are the Titans Return leaks up on there, too?

@  NightViper : (29 April 2016 - 06:41 AM)

Holy jive! So much porn spam in the TFWiki Facebook group!

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 April 2016 - 06:34 AM)

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)

my deluxe groove has shipped! soon i will have defensor the way he is supposed to be!!

@  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)

Don't remind me, they do that at my work too *shudder*

@  Patchouli Kn... : (27 April 2016 - 08:29 PM)

Oh yes, yes, it did.

Thought this might be an interesting subject. Who is the best damn band alive in the world today? So if you catch my drift, I'm talking active bands who regularly put out music and/or tour. We can save the discussion about how the modern acts stack up against Led Zeppelin and The Beatles for another day but I'm looking for bands that I have a snowballs chance in hell of seeing live in this lifetime.

It should be really easy to pick your favorite, use your INTERNET-fu on Youtube, and come up with a batch of great sounding examples for your choice. Would also be killer if you could tell us a little bit about the songs you're choosing. Expecting to see a lot of acts I've never heard of.

For my choice I'll stay tried and true. Drive-By Truckers. I've been singing this groups praises for half a decade now and nothing is going to change. Last Sunday I got to see them live once again and for $20 they played a dream setlist that went nearly 3 hours. I present to you ten songs that I think serve as a really good introduction to the band and justification for the choice.

"After The Scene Dies" from Spinner.com, from the album "The Big To-Do", vocals by Patterson Hood

A number of DBT songs deal with the downside of fame and what happens when it runs out. If I could find a better video of "Road Cases" it would probably make my top ten. This one is as good as that all time Truckers classic though. Basically a love letter to those who went for fame and came up short.



"Birthday Boy" from Spinner.com, from the album "The Big To-Do", vocals by "The Stroker Ace" Mike Cooley

It's a movie cliche to feature the stripper with a heart of gold. DBT has a knack of going for the grit and telling a story like it probably really is. So here's the stripper with a heart of gold who is probably a hooker too.




"Let There Be Rock" live 2009 from the album "Southern Rock Opera", vocals by Patterson Hood

A song that Patterson introduces live by saying it's about how rock and roll saved his life once upon a time, I offer it simply because I've lived bits of this song. Even if to a lesser degree than Patterson Hood probably did and a few names may change.



"Women Without Whisky" live from the album "Southern Rock Opera", vocals by "The Stroker Ace" Mike Cooley

I love this song for the lyric "Now I know the bottle aint to blame and I ain't trying to. 'Cause it don't make you do a thing it just lets you" and the overall context of thinking about giving up ones vices...someday.



"Decoration Day" live from the album "Decoration Day", vocals by Jason Isbell

A song I present with a heavy heart. Not just for the subject matter, a modern Hatfields vs McCoys family feud, but for the fact that I'll never hear it live again. Sadly Jason has left the band and you'd have to go to a Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit show to hear it, but the album it's on is an absolute classic so you won't be disappointed



"Go Go Boots" acoustic from the album "Go Go Boots", vocals by Patterson Hood

From DBT's latest album, basically a piece of a larger R&B Murder Mystery. What happens when a reverend decides he'd rather have the mistress than his wife. You'll have to seek out "The Fireplace Poke" to find out what happened to the preacher



"The Thanksgiving Filter" acoustic from the album "Go Go Boots", vocals by Patterson Hood

Went with this simply because I've also lived bits of this song, and it sums up my feelings on the holidays at times



"Buttholeville->State Trooper" live in Atlanta GA from nothing whatsoever

Just a great example of how an ordinary DBT show ends. It's usually this combo or the tune "People Who Died". Chosen because Steve Earle is awesome.



"Used To Be A Cop" live from the album "Go Go Boots", vocals by Patterson Hood.

As you dig deeper into DBT's catalog you will find a lot of songs about tragic people with tragic tales. Started on their first album with songs like "Panties In Your Purse" and goes forward 15 years later to this tune about a flawed cop who lost everything.



"Zip City" from the album "Southern Rock Opera", vocals by Mike Cooley

Before I started this I didn't know what songs would make up my ten but I did know that I'd end with this one. My all time favorite Truckers song, the story of a young Mike Cooleys frustrating relationship as a teenager. I'll note that when Cooley introduces this song live he mentions that it's 90%+ true. And it's even better live. Sadly to give you a listenable copy you just have to look at the cover of Southern Rock Opera




Anyway, thanks for indulging me and if this doesn't fall on deaf ears looking forward to hearing some suggestions for some great music.

When I think of the greatest concert experience ever the first band to pop into my head is always KISS. They might be old but they still do shows and most of all they still kick ass. Like a cross between a rock concert and a circus after see KISS live every other show will pale by comparison. Hell, even people that aren't big on their music still get a kick out of the shows.

To prove this I present Exhibit A:


I rest my case.... icon-hotrod.gif

Hell, here is Exhibit B:


I was at the concert where this one was recorded.

Awesome, look forward to it. Wish I could go, closest I'll get anytime soon is something called Forecastle Festival in Louisville.

Freddie may be gone, but they're still kicking. And a minor warning since this version changes "You made a bad boy out of me" to "You made an bunghole out of me" since that's in the cupcake monkey.
