Just trying to get some exposure. It's difficult to get your stuff seen.

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.

@  MEDdMI : (01 May 2016 - 02:14 PM)

...... *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.

@  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.

Obviously spoilers for those who care, but I was wondering...

On page 13 there is a scene with Optimus Prime talking to Magnum. Suddenly Dion runs up to them to report about the Decepticons. Dion of course won't recognize Optimus as Orion, and you might even say Dion has been upgraded so much Optimus wouldn't recognize him, but then Magnum says "How many, Dion?" with Optimus standing there.

So does Optimus know Dion lived now?

Also Deathsaurus makes the comment that half Megatron's troops are "brainwashed Autobots", and while it's possible those are the background filler characters, anyone wonder if maybe any of the main Decepticon troops of Megatron were once Autobots? Was there ever a day when maybe Soundwave, Thundercracker or Shockwave was an Autobot?

BTW - Anyone else thinking Magnum will get damaged and rebuilt using an Autobot warrior upgrade like Prime, and become Ultra Magnus?

Yup, I always figured Magnum = Magnus.

Deathsaurus survived his beatdown, I like that.

Haven't read it, but wouldn't the "brainwashed Autobots" be a reference to the Robo-Smasher? One of the Constructicons origins.

Yes, it was a Robo-Smasher reference, but the Constructicons were never Autobots, they were always Constructicons. SO I figured they didn't count. The only Autobot who was Robo-Smashed was the Gyronian Sentry. I wonder if anyone else used to be an Autobot.

It's not like this is canon for the G1 cartoon continuity, y'know. TFCC comics are pretty much fanfics that gotten lucky and are published at a convention, nothing more.

They're official. Fun Pub works directly with Hasbro to make sure that all of the stories fit Hasbro concerns. Regardless if the "story" is comic, prose or even just a bio, Hasbro has had a say in each and every one.

But your point about "canon for the G1 cartoon" stands. The Wings-verse is not set directly in the Sunbow cartoon universe. They're simply similar continuities.

Really classy. Don't think for a moment that Hasbro doesn't likely go over them with a fine toothed comb. I'll gladly take a lot of what Fun Pub publishes over a lot of what IDW has given us.

Also Forest Lee used to write the Club stories and he worked/works for Hasbro. So you're second point is uninformed.

IIRC, The Secret of Omega Supreme says there were a bunch. The comic says there were more Sentries, at least--they're called a "sentry team" and we're told "they all failed to report for duty." Presumably this is because Megatron robo-smashed them all.

TSOOS has always been an amusing episode for me. The theme tells us that the Autobots are trying to "destroy the evil forces of the Decepticons", and then the show itself says that some of the Decepticons are brainwashed citizens/Autobots. Someone didn't think about the implications of that... icon-fire.gif

Yeah, it's not THE continuity, but it is A continuity.
