Any particular reason it's not available in some of the ones I see more often like BBTS and TFSource and so on?

Might want to wash your hands after handling the toys if you order from the latter.

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.

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?

@  Telly : (27 April 2016 - 04:43 PM)

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 April 2016 - 04:38 PM)

Don't say it Foffy. Don't say it...

@  Ms Virion : (27 April 2016 - 04:35 PM)

I can attest to that. I've seen his recording equipment.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 April 2016 - 04:30 PM)

THE DOCTOR WAS ONE OF THE VOICES

@  Telly : (27 April 2016 - 04:30 PM)

but the doctor told me the voices wouldnt come back anymore...

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 April 2016 - 04:26 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2016 - 03:51 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2016 - 03:40 PM)

It's in Connecticut.

Never thought of it that way... I thought that was more of a hommage to the toy's helmet. Like Grapple's head mold is more alike to the cartoon design's helmet.

Hmm, would a ladder for Inferno have helped? Just wondering how much of the essential Inferno-ness is lacking in the Universe toy.


If it would change the overall design of the to make the vehicle mode look longer and the robot mode look "taller", maybe.

But really ladder or pump truck doesn't really matter to me. It's just that G1 Inferno was one of the first toys to have somewhat human proportions compared to the Autobots around him. Which always made that aspect of his toy stand out in my mind. So the big chunky no-waist Universe toy was a disappointment since we first saw images of it.


Huh. I'm apparently one of these people, like Walky, who've always thought of Inferno as a big lump of Dery squatness; probably because I didn't own the G1 mold until I was an adult, so I just had the fiction. If anything, Universe Inferno struck me as more athletic than I'd expected. So maybe the Universe toy splits the difference just fine.

I do kinda want him to have a red face though, like in the comics. Maybe copper red. Maybe I'll do that.

The collar is an important part of the look to me. It's iconic like Shockwaves hexagonal, one eyed head, Jazz' visor (even Bay kept that) or Hot Rod's spoiler.

Too many reimagings in both the toys and comics have taken such things away or added things that just look off in recent years, such as Blurr's wing head or Hot Rod's horns.

I was always a huge Inferno fan but the first toy I had was the Actionmaster. Don't get me wrong, I was a huge Actionmaster fan but AM Inferno never looked right to me because he was missing his collar.

Eh, it's not like it's a perminent attachment is it? As long as it could come off and on easy I'd totally take one to make my Inferno and Grappel look more "Classic".

I can assure you it will probably cost at least $10. This is, after all, fan-produced, and casting materials aren't cheap.

Basically what Windsweeper said. I consider it essential to his "look" even though it does impede articulation.

Assuming their optics work anything at all like human eyes, that is. They likely have highly advanced sensors, with significantly more visual capability than us.
