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.

Willis needs to make rent again?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 April 2016 - 06:46 AM)

Oh, are the Titans Return leaks up on there, too?

@  NightViper : (29 April 2016 - 06:41 AM)

Holy jive! So much porn spam in the TFWiki Facebook group!

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)

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

HO, THAT'S WHO!

@  Telly : (27 April 2016 - 05:05 PM)

DOCTOR WHY?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 April 2016 - 04:47 PM)

DOCTOR WHERE?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 April 2016 - 04:47 PM)

DOCTOR WHAT?

@  Ms Virion : (27 April 2016 - 04:46 PM)

No, TheDoctorWho.

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2016 - 04:44 PM)

DOCTOR WHO?

@  Telly : (27 April 2016 - 04:43 PM)

my black and white world view has been shattered into so many tiny pieces now. like little packing peanuts tossed into a river my mind is scattered. AND ITS ALL YOUR FAULT!

@  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)

We are your conscience. You do everything we tell you to. Now slap yourself in the face.

@  Telly : (27 April 2016 - 04:22 PM)

where am i? who are you people?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 April 2016 - 04:16 PM)

No. No one remembers anything. Everyone has amnesia.

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

Does anyone remember Revolution X?

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

It's in Connecticut.

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2016 - 03:39 PM)

Now go to Pym Falls.

@  Smokey : (27 April 2016 - 03:38 PM)

... *jumps off of Victoria Falls*

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 April 2016 - 03:30 PM)

He's on HTS now.

@  Smokey : (27 April 2016 - 03:28 PM)

I got the Deluxe from Japan. I lost patience waiting for Hasbro to release him.

@  Lightbright : (27 April 2016 - 02:40 PM)

It's an evolution revolution!

@  Kalidor : (27 April 2016 - 01:32 PM)

I enjoyed Revolution. Was a good show.

I have had little experience buying botcon exclusives before now, I vaguely know that they'll cost several times more than retail, but aside from that, I don't know what to expect?

How much should I be saving for a secondhand SG Treadshot, and what would be the best channel to get one if I'm not going to the convention?

I got Skybite off Ebay for 60-70 dollars from the Redux set. I'd say have a hundred ready to go and hope for less.

It's also hard to tell if Treadshot is going to be hotter than the other inhabitants of the box set. I know that when I was shopping around on eBay right after 2010 Botcon Breakdown was a good $20-30 more than some of the other figures in that set.

I would echo that guessing between 70-100 is relatively reasonable.

I would think by being a non-G1 homage he's likely not to be as popular among "the masses".

The best place to look would likely be the BST board here. There are a lot of Allsparkers splitting up and selling off their box sets.

Treadshot BIN $74.99

$70-$100 range is dead on. Hope you get one Caboose.

I'd expect the price to drop, unless there is a big demand for this set.

Did any of the other exclusives sell out besides SG Prime/Kick-Out?

I'm pretty surprised by the prices BBTS and TFSource are listing these at. They're by far cheaper than any previous after Botcon offerings they've listed. Ebay prices even seem tame, and history shows that prices are usually insane the weekend of Botcon. Were production numbers just really high on souvenir pieces this year, or is the interest in this year's figures kind of low?

Thanks, Walky for the confirmation.

It could be a combination of both. Not many like the Shattered Glass theme.

It's such a nice looking set, though.

It happens every year - I see individual figures as great or lame, but when I see the whole set together, it looks fantastic.

I'm very excited to get everything when I pick it up at the end of May. I even got a headband and trading card set! Woo!
