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.

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!

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.

@  Telly : (27 April 2016 - 08:28 PM)

and during christmas it just got woooooooooooooorse....

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

I used to work at a grocery store, so I'd hear those songs for 8 long hours...

@  Paladin : (27 April 2016 - 07:38 PM)

that feeling when you hear a song at the grocery store & it winds up stuck in your head hours later...

@  Telly : (27 April 2016 - 05:05 PM)

DOCTOR WHY?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 April 2016 - 04:47 PM)

DOCTOR WHERE?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 April 2016 - 04:47 PM)

@  Ms Virion : (27 April 2016 - 04:46 PM)

No, TheDoctorWho.

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2016 - 04:44 PM)

DOCTOR WHO?

@  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)

where am i? who are you people?

@  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.

From the design, I'd guess the package will be in the style of the Henkei Rodimus toy package.

Um, yeah. That' pretty much falls into the category of "so obvious, it doesn't even need mentioning". It also makes it fit in with their other Henkei knock offs.

I've not spotted any differences yet, but they did make the SG Optimus have two small changes, just to keep people from selling it as the "real thing". I wonder if they will do that for Rodimus?

I don't have much issue with stuff that Hasbro/Takara has never made like Henkai Sunstorm and such, but doing copies of stuff that HAS been done seems to be really ridiculous, especially the copies of BotCon stuff. At least they could put their own spin on it like that MP Black Rodimus inspired verson.

So far all Botcon "Replicas" have had some change they made to the toy on purpose so they are not confused with the "real thing" by collectors. I like that they do this. Wouldn't want to mess up the collectability of the real thing, but let's face it, if you don't have a SG Rodimus they sell for about $400 when they become available, I'd never buy that now, but I'd buy a near-replica stand-in for $30.

Question: How hard is it to distinguish these replicas from the real things? Could a collector be able to tell the difference without good pictures?

I forgot that spaghetti was a pasta really.

The Not-Botcon Optimus Prime has "NOT FOR SALE" on his bumper and an extra crack painted in his window. The no Botcon Mirage is missing his rub symbol and has different copyright info from the real thing.

According to a recent update on this toy it will be out shortly, they are already taking pre-orders. It costs $40 plus shipping, slightly less if you want one without packaging. They also confirm there will be a KO Henkei Wildrider deco, but there WILL NOT be a KO Side Burn deco probably because they don't want to take sales away from the TFCC on a product they currently sell on their site.

Of course, you still have to know that a near-replica KO exists and be looking for this sort of thing. All too easy for someone to throw something like this on ebay and fool people who won't discover it until months later, if ever... especially if the seller "corrects" some of the changes.

I might pick up that Wildrider KO. I had the original but sold him off awhile ago. Now seeing where the price has gone.....wow.

Although you say this, I have never seen the PRIME on ebay, particularly since they have different packaging they are easier to tell apart. I have seen the Mirage, but not lately, and always sold as a KO or replica. Despite your worries, most people have been very honest about it. They are generally sold for people who can't aford the "real thing", not as schemes for people to trick people into paying too much.
