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.

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.

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.

All I can say is their preorder and invoice system seems to work fine.

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)

@  Telly : (27 April 2016 - 04:30 PM)

Looks like there's scans of the magazine up now - but the pictures are taking forever to load.

I was trying to find those myself yesterday, but their site was so SLOW to load I gave up after trying to guess the first few pages they were on.

Starscream's face looks really good here (if overly dark). I do hope the super lightness of him in the scans isn't indicative of a color change (MP Rodimus looked pink in some magazine photos).

The Arms Microns look like so much fun. I wish I could afford more of the Japanese figures.

They really do look fun. But I don't want to import the whole line, particularly if it mostly uses stickers and I'd have to buy the US ones to get decently-painted main figures too.

Shame we're not getting the Mini-Con versions of the molds, though. Even if we can buy all the partners as gashapon down the road, they won't interact nearly as well.

Um, eew. This photo makes MP 11 look like cheap model kit plastic. And no wash to bring out the details? I get that the photos might be brightened, but Starscream really looks like that at release then I'm definitely waiting for a clearance or a second release. This one looks like a cheap model kit.

Even with the lame swordless "samurai sheaths" Hasbro's MP Starscream looks a lot better. It really is amazing what a simple black wash can do for a figure.

Can't say I'm digging it too much. I like some of the Mini-Cons, but I don't think all of them are better than the standard accessories from the American versions of the toys. Add in the cheap-looking stickers as substitutes for painted detail, and the ports that they thought they had to add all over, and I think I'll just wait and hope for some kind of Micron Booster set to get those guys.

Man, I'm waffling. I'm not really in a financial state right now to get the Japanese line... but it's that rare blue-moon time where I'm actually TEMPTED to do so.

(Well, for the bigger toys. Not the Cyberverse. What little I get from that will be Hasbro. And little only due to finances.)

I deeply appreciate that the Hasbro versions are less expensive, even with Takara's slashing. And I have to admit, losing some of the weapons is... unpleasant. Like Ratchet's double scalpel-swords. And while we haven't seen J-Knock-Out yet, I can't imagine he'll have the prong. And some guys, like Wheeljack and Hot Shot, I have to wonder about the survival of the intricate striping. If Bee there's stripes ARE stickers and that holds true for others... eeeeeesh.

But... well, the Mini-Cons look to have that "building" feature I LOVE. And the added ports on the bigger toys... I'm cool with it. I like my toys to be fun to PLAY with. And really, most of the missing paint detail I can add myself... it'd be good to get back to that.

So yeah. Waffling.

This is one time we disagree my friend. I much prefer the coloration and detailing of MP-11 (provided he's colored like the first pictures). icon-hotrod.gif

Hasbro better announce Minicon sets for Prime at Botcon. I need a Prime/Bee/Ratchet set in a unified color scheme NOW.

Also, the Minicons seem to have names, anyone able to translate them?

They're O.P., B2, C.L., R.A., Gora and Baro. The Autobot ones are named after their partners (first two letters of each name except for Bumblebee), and it looks like the Decepticon ones are named after their animal modes (Gorilla and Buffalo).

edit: Hmmm, in the photo, it does look pretty big, but I'm still inclined to disagree for whatever reason.

Are these Microns a wee bit bigger than UT Mini-cons?
