...... *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)

@  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.

@  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.

You do realize you just set yourself up for a Kiss-Play joke, right?





As an aside, anyone else here think that Rescue Bots might actually be compatible with the Prime Universe or even the live-action franchise?

Given that Optimus is only making cameos instead of directly leading the team, and that he talks quite grimly about the situation with Cybertron, it could fit the bill for either one.

Yeah, I agree that I feel this could be part of Prime, since its pretty much headed up by the same team. Likely no ever real crossover; but basic designs and what little back story we got helps link them some.

I liked it. Transformers:Eureka seems like a fun concept.

I'm a little surprised they didn't actually use the word Dinobots for the escaped robots.

There weree some honest fun moments and characterization already. I like the set up of Rescue Bots being an existing type of TF and I like Heatwave's complete and total impatience with the whole concept of disguise.

Wow, I really like this. It's potentially a better show than Prime, and I like Prime.

Like a lot of people, I've been lamenting that Prime Bulkhead isn't the real Bulkhead. Now we know where the real Bulkhead is. I suspect that his name actually was Bulkhead until Prime decided to use Bulky instead of Ironhide, which is kind of a shame.

This is my favorite Optimus mouth design yet. Nice and robotic. All of the designs are nice. I kinda wish they'd get toys designed for older kids, but that might defeat the purpose.

I like the characters. Everyone but Heatwave is pretty one-note so far, but you can say that about G1. The Autobots are perfectly normal Autobots and the humans are about as good as we ever get.

That was a lot better than I thought it would be. Though it's a bad sign for Prime when the little kids version of TF has nothing even remotely as annoying as Miko.

The animation is still low budget, but doesn't look as terrible as it did in the preview. The writing is actually pretty good, and it's definitely designed to be something adult fans and their kids can enjoy without either of them getting annoyed - it may actually be better than Prime in that regard.

It's also kinda grim - they aren't brushing over the fact that Cybertron's a dead world, and it actually kinda can fit into Prime continuity (and I'm almost hoping for a crossover in Prime at some point). None of the characters are remotely annoying except the elder brother (and he's supposed to be), and all are fairly endearing - though there's some definite nepotism happening in the Griffen security offices. icon-waspy.gif

It wasn't MLP:FIM, but it didn't hurt in the least to watch, and I kinda liked it. The kids should love it. High marks from me.

Just had an opportunity to watch both this episode and ep2. Absolutely freaking LOVED it. The characters are engaging, and there are actually some kid-tense situations presented.

And I agree that it's not too much of a stretch to think this happens roughly in the Prime setting. The comments made by Optimus, as said before, as well as his comment about the young of this world being their best allies struck me as totally referring to Jack, Miko, and Raf.

I'm hoping the YouTube doesn't get pulled before I have a chance to show these to my boys tomorrow.

High praise and well done to those guys. I second the wishes that we could get versions of these guys in a more adult line. I'd love to have Prime-style versions of Heatwave, Chase, Boulder, and Blades.

Man, now I'm even more excited for Christmas since I got my boys the whole set of these guys. I wanna play with 'em too!! icon-fire.gif

You are not alone. It is insanely freaky. To make matters worse, he walks out looking like... Optimus, then his jaw is exposed and his eyes shrink into dots. He looks like Prime when it's time to go on a murder spree.

C'mon. Who at Hasbro is making these decisions/letting these decisions happen?
