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.

@  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?

@  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.

@  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)

@  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)

The other reason to watch shows on DVD is that you can just bust through them at a good pace. I watched the first season of Walking Dead online in a matter of a week. After the first few season 2 eps, I saved the last 3 and watched them in one sitting. For LOST or 24 this also worked very well. Some shows are just better when you watch them in bigger chunks, because the episode-by-episode structure just makes you hate them for dragging things out.

Yeah, not enough zombies. The new humans were neat, as was the entire bar scene. It just goes to show why Rick is awesome and the leader.

Lori, and her wreck, I couldn't care less about. She shouldn't have went off alone, nor should she have been driving and looking at the map.

The Daughter, with a fever and being bed ridden, I am betting is infected. No way its a coincidence. I just think its weird that no one else is saying anything about it. Shouldn't they have seen this before?

Shane, I still don't see as a negative character. Sure he was harsh, but it took that to finally get Hershal to realize what was going on. So far the only things that he did that were negative is passively aggressively threaten Dale and shoot/leave Otis as bait. And for that last one, he was willing himself to stay, but Otis wouldn't leave him.

On Talking Dead, Dave Navarro gets on to the executive producer about the first half and this episode seem to drag on and not enough zombies are around. His response was that this episode was to show the reaction of the characters after the mid season cliffhanger, and afterwards it would ramp up on Zombie action.

HIGHLIGHT to view:
Beth's having a pretty standard delayed shock reaction. If it is the infection, I'm curious as to how she got it. I watched the scene with her mother pretty closely and zombie mom didn't get a bite in. If she had, there would have been an obvious injury, which Beth lacked.

Anyway, for an episode with only two zombies and a whole lotta talking, this was actually less disappointing and boring than I initially feared it would be. See y'all next week.

It was an okay episode, but splitting up the season hurts it , as it has very little punch as a "premier", even a mid-season premier. The bar scene was nice, but in all honesty...that was about it. I agree Lori's car crash didn't really convey the desired impact, and I'm finding I care about her character less and less. Carl's starting to be slightly more interesting, but only slightly, and I'm ready for Dale to just die...

Also I can't believe how many stupid things Andrea does in this episode...even if you think all the walkers are gone/ dead...they had JUST shown how dumb of an assumption that was, and she walks into the barn by herself with no visible weapon...how does she know there aren't any more walkers lurking in there? I'm not riding on the back of the tailgate with them either...dead or not.

This is also rapidly becoming a zombie show without any zombies. I know, "it's not about the zombies"/ We get that, but you really need some zombies, or it gets boring fast.

Still, I think this ep was better than pretty much the whole first half of season 2. I'm also wondering how much truth there really was in anything the guys in the bar told Rick, and how much they were just fishing for info. Maybe this is setting up an into for the Governor? not counting on it, but I'd like SOMETHING interesting to happen...

It happened too fast for me but was the guy in the bar really was reaching for his gun? So Rick was right to shoot him? That bar scene was intense and it was just the conversation.

Shane tried to rape Lori when he was drunk and he did put Rick in his gun scope sights once.

A friend said that Glenn put on some muscle. I don't quite see it.

It's somehow cathartic to have every single character in this show each have their own moment to say that the entire first half if this season was a stupid pointless mistake.

I can sort of see more drama coming, but still this was a heavily fast-forwardable episode

Yeah, I didn't see it until I watched the replay it happens very fast but he goes for his gun, and the other guy just seemed to be setting of warning signs the whole time.

Indeed he DOES go for his gun, right after chuckling and saying "This guy...", and so Rick blows him away, and then blows away Mr "I'll kill you and take blah blah blah".

Pretty much this.

After I saw her wreck I said that she is officially the stupidest person on the show. She had absolutely no business going after them in the first place!
I think this whole car accident is just a plot device for her to lose the baby and have no moral qualms brought up about it by the other characters or the audience.
Personally speaking as a new father, I do believe that keeping the baby would be the biggest mistake ever. A screaming newborn or crabby infant are going to be nothing but a big "dinner bell" for any walkers in the area.

Well, the entire thing was just stupid anyway, they could have written in a bit better reason that she needed to run off. Basically Rick and Glenn are sent go to look for Hershel, knowing where he's probably at, and suddenly she needs to go look for Rick?

I was yelling at the tv for her ridiculous reason to run off so quickly. They were barely gone. Also how stupidly she was driving, emphasizing that point even more *with* the windows rolled down.

The bar scene was probably the best scene in the show. When the guy took a leak *inside* with them, that pretty much told Rick all he needed to know, the comment about looking for women backing that up even further about how these survivors were surviving.

Edit: I think the other group is going to find Lori.

So the set-up with Lori last week was just a way of allowing for zombie action this week. Bleh. Though, to be honest, the zombie losing it's face to the windshield was pretty cool.

Meanwhile, I'm guessing they leave the farm at the end of the season. Yeesh.

I thought the barn thing was what would have gotten them evicted from the farm. Interesting that it hasn't, and that Rick and Hershel seem to be fast friends.

Shane is still a bit too over the top, and Dale is getting more annoying. Most of the other characters are being better though, because they're doing a lot less sitting around and ruminating. All the stuff in town was solid.

Lori's whole car thing was just plain dumb. When it went airborne, it was like the writers were shouting "We don't know what we're doing with this character WHHHHHEEEE!"

Overall, it still bugs me how safe the farm is overall. Having a genuinely safe home base that's worth them thinking about protecting and "going to war" over just doesn't feel realistic enough for the direness of the situation. It's easier to produce for TV by staying in one place, sure, but it doesn't seem to be serving the story after this long. It'd be better if they kept on the move, finding interesting things week to week, and giving us a look at the world at large, revealed bit by bit.
