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.

for the last time, stop swimming naked in the fermentarium.

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 - 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)

@  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.

@  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.

Beast Megatron (love the new purple, don't like the black face)
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1432.html

Optimus Primal (nearly identical to the Hasbro one)
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1431.html

Axalon (looks awesome)
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1430.html

Unicron (darker colors than Hasbro's)
http://blog-imgs-32....24005149b3e.jpg

Twincast, Stripes, and Nightstalker
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1428.html
Twincast does have the larger chest (and obviously the anime colored face) but it's been retool to remove the extra detailing. I LOVE, LOVE how Nighstalker's tape mode is nearly identical to Ravage - that is frickin' sweet!

Soundblaster, Enemy, and Wing Thing
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1427.html
Soundblaster has the newly colored face, modified stickers (all which look to be applied at the factory), and at least in this gallery is missing his dial. Enemy mimics the missing stripe stickers via paint apps (Encore Rumble & Frenzy were just bare).

Is anyone else's older release of Beast Megatron suffering from slightly-loose hip joints? The joints on mine have gotten loose enough that he slowly dips downwards in beast mode, only stopping once his T.rex head is inches from touching the ground. It's making it slightly tempting to get this absurdly-overpriced release. icon-wildride.gif

Axalon looks pretty good; it's amazing how the paint job helps make it look fairly different from Energon Sharkticon. icon-ironhide.gif

Axalon looks great. At that price, though, I'll have to contemplate it a bit.

The cassettes... nnnnnn so sad I can't get them.

Beast Megatron actually looks nice. But at that price it's a no go, edging toward a not ever.

Well, I'm in love with Megatron's darker purple and Axalon. Dammit.


And I never noticed until now that Cybertron Optimus' beast forearms/robot thighs are molded different from the BW release.

Man, Twincast and Soundblaster look great. The cassettes turned out perfectly too for the most part, I still love the crazy choices.

Hopefully I'll be able to get at least Twincast at some point, since the mold would be new for me.

The Vector Oracle Micron is actually for any Transformers toy (including Dark of the Moon), so there's no indication he's from the movie.

Since he's referred to as an Arms Micron, Prime would be the logical assumption.

Since we have the bios for Soundblaster's tapes transcribed, I ran them through Google Translate. Am I correct in thinking Enemy's sonic power is to make his enemies too angry to think straight? And that Wingthing is explicitly a drone with a personality program?

Ah I see now, still a nice way to change it to add a little difference.

I got my United figures today.

Axalon is awesome and Megatron is pretty cool (love the new purple). Unicron is nice, but Primal is a wash. I'll have to dig out my originals to see if there is anything different about Primal.

We're already seen that the surfboard combines the paint masks of the previous two versions and that the Maximal symbol is in Primal's butt instead of the outside.

They're balljoints, so they're just wearing down. Stick a dot of superglue on the ball and then put the leg back on and work it around some. Good as new.

They didn't change it. They've been backwards since the Cybertron (ie second) release of Primal.
Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.
