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

@  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.

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...

@  Kalidor : (27 April 2016 - 06:08 PM)

Gary Seven or nothing!

@  The Doctor Who : (27 April 2016 - 05:44 PM)

Personally I like Inspector Spacetime better...

@  Telly : (27 April 2016 - 05:33 PM)

doctor...doctor...doctor who hhhooooooooooooooooooooo!!!

@  Paladin : (27 April 2016 - 05:16 PM)

Not sure if this is the right place or not...

Let's say I have a picture of a thing:

http://www.dalong.ne...1/p/m21_n01.jpg

And I want to change the purple in the picture to, I dunno, green.

How can I do that? Do I need Photoshop or will GIMP do?

Realistically, if someone has tutorials on this, I wouldn't mind seeing them. Doing colors in Photoshop has always been very challenging for me, and seeing good techniques and step-by-step processes would be awesome.

Also textures, if I'm being greedy. icon-hotrod.gif Everything these days has subtle paint-y or paper-type texture to it, and it boggles my mind how this is achieved. Short of taking classes in digital illustration, are there decent guides for this type of stuff online?

My basic launching points came from here, but there's all sorts of tutorials out there on the net, so just Google away. The techniques taught there, though, are pretty basic, but go a long way.


For something as basic as hue-swapping though, there's a couple of ways to go about it. Mostly, though, you'll use your Lasso tool and carefully select the area you want colour-changed. With that done, you can either play around with the hue/saturation balances to get a rough approximation of the colour you want. Alternately, you can greyscale and lighten the selection, up the contrast to pick out the shadows more, and then throw a translucent layer of colour on top of it (either lower the opacity of the layer, or set the layer function to "Multiply", depending on the functions of your image editing software). With a Multiply layer, you can also attempt to do things like add some new colour designs to what was once a monochrome area.

Digibashing light colours over dark ones proves tricky though. You can negative the selection, turning the dark areas lighter so that your colours become more apparent, but the inverted shadows wind up making the selection look like chrome. But there's not much else you can do about that.



Also, this thread should've gone in "Grapple's Drafting Desk" in the Iacon Art Forum. But then, that thing receives such little traffic...

the honest to goodness trick to it is taking an editing program and just sitting down with it and learning what it can and can't do for you.



that's a quick, no masking hue-contrasting

not so much the swappery I have pending patents on lol ... but yeah tutorials are a good place to start.

but I've always enjoyed selfteaching ...myself when ever I've had to switch programs for one reason or another
Would like to see the Combaticons before the Titan Masters.
