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)

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?

@  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.

@  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)

I'm assuming Wheeljack has had this bio, or something similar to it, for a few years. We just don't normally get to see these.

That, or he was involved in the creation of the Predacon that would eventually become BW Dinobot. Somehow.

*And a vague-at-best understanding of what a dinosaur actually is, but that's about par for the course when it comes to Dinobots.

I can't remember if there's been any behind the scenes info about him, but Prime Wheeljack may be taken from this bio.

Unless I'm missing something it is a chicken and egg thing at the moment.(egg comes first, I know)

Arcee's bio is a good example of how problematic this merging of continuities can be. They take two characters both named Arcee and make them one person. I consider G1 Arcee and Prime Arcee to be seperate characters.


Well they're trying to be inclusive of all versions of Arcee. Surprised a bit there's nothing about her being an Omnibot or sculpting Energon in there. That would have been pretty cool actually. Shoot.

Just consider this filling in the general bio of Aligned Continuity Arcee.


-ZacWilliam, or let it go as being a necessary facet of the trans-universal Hall entries...

That is disappointing, and it's such a simple line to throw in.

QUOTE(Silent_Magnus @ Mar 8 2012, 12:37 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
Pretty good spread here. No clue who I want to vote for.
My favorite part of this process is getting to see the bios for the guys that have obviously been "Aligned".

I find it kind of boring that post-G1 guys like BW Megatron and Sky-byte basically just get summaries of their shows.

Agreed, Sky-Byte didn't even get a mention of being from the G2 era, which is the picture they used for him.


I like how Megatron's bio makes it sound like he won BM, he made an army and countered Cybertron, no mention of his final defeat.

I'm really torn over who to vote for, they're all great picks. I hope next year they just auto-induct Primal and save me some trouble. icon-hotrod.gif

It's funny how Beast Wars Megatron (on the Mainframe cartoons) is like my favorite character ever from Transformers, meanwhile his interpretation in Japanese media is pretty much exactly what I hate (seemingly unintelligent Decepticon Leader type).

I will admit that I did like that the United version had an Intelligence of a 10 while Optimus Primal's was a 9. That seems befitting (don't know if those stats were stolen from the Anniversary versions or not?).

Is it? That's terribly inconsistent with their official stance on Megatron, then.

At any rate, I don't see any mention of that in Rodimus' bio, unless you want to really stretch some of the generic stuff about inspiration to other Autobots.

How come Wheeljack's bio doesn't say anything about him being Hot Shot's best friend until he was left for dead and joined the Decepticons, becoming Megatron's secret ace in the hole?

Unlike E Rodimus, Armada Wheeljack can't be argued to be an alt of the original character. Otherwise BW Megatron already in the Hall of Fame, becuase he's Megatron.

Well, that's kind of my point. Energon Rodimus isn't the same character. He was never Hot Rod, and while his past self was compared to Hot Shot (the real Hot Rod/Rodimus parallel), that was only in hearsay. Actually if he were to parallel another Transformers character it would probably be Sentinel Prime.

Except he shares the same looks, and name, and role (leader). Doesn't matter if he wasn't Hot Rod, he is Rodimus. Same with Animated, he looks like Hot Rod, but he's Rodimus and a leader. To Hasbro they are all the same.
