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.

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.

@  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?

You realize these are the Japanese equivalent of a Cracker Jack toy, right?

...when was the last time you bought a box of Cracker Jack?

(I wasn't complaining! I just think it's weird how they sculpt details onto these things and then tell you to cover it all up with stickers.)

I have a suspicion you might be right, Thy, and that's just a mock up using a picture of the G1 toy (the pictures down the side are of the box are the previous wave of kits). He'll be more than just blue, though - they come molded in three colours (I'd guess dark blue, light blue and red?) - but these things do have an *insane* amount of stickers.

It might be dark blue/light blue/red if they want a light blue Hot Spot, but I suspect we'll be getting blue/red/grey with a dark blue Hot Spot. Deathsaurus has a lot more grey than light blue, and Prime doesn't have any light blue at all.

How's the plastic and paint quality on these?


What paint? icon-waspy.gif

They're cheap, snap together model kits that come with candy.

I haven't bought any of these, but if they're anything like the Super Sentai candy toys, they're at least molded from sturdy ABS plastic, so they won't be super fragile or anything.

They're molded in up to three basic colours, with a ton of stickers for detailing.


Cheap if you live in Japan, you mean... icon-screamer.gif

I love the Kabaya kits, but the G1 ones for example usually cost more then the actual G1 toy in a MISB state...

I never had one of these, only KOs (I have an Action Master Rollout for example), so - how 'soft' is the plastic? And how large are these guys? Because this Defensor is something I'd defintely like to get my hands on. icon-hotrod.gif

Plastic is good. not "soft". The figures are usually between Legend and Scout. So... around Cyberverse Commander.

And you can usually find these new ones for $10 or less. Even going back to Wave 1.

For those asking what these kits are like, I got the Kabaya Ultra Magnus kit a year or so back, and wrote about it here. I imagine the basic concepts are similar with these guys.

It should be emphasized that the Gaiacross components (and presumably the Gaia Defensor components) are tiny; smaller and certainly less complex than a Legion.

Which is why they'll work with Hot Spot, but I'm just saying.

Now this is interesting. Deathsaurus appears to come with both Eagle and Tiger animals and Hot Spot can store Defensor's chestplate on his legs. I can't wait to see bigger pictures though, because I have no idea what the long, thin things are, on Hot Spot, that look like giant antenna clipped to his upper arms. I have the original G1 Toy, and I can assure you, it never had them. Unless they're some kind of bizarre homage to his repair base mode.

I think the antennae from his repair base were supposed to be clipped to his shoulders on the original toy too. But its a look that never caught on.

Well, I wouldn't mind Dethsaurus, since he's the Decepticon leader from Victory, so I might end up getting all three, and just not assembing Prime. Seems a bit of a waste, but maybe I can find someone who wants a mini WFC Optimus and does't care for the breastformer.
