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.

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)

@  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)

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

@  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.

And personally, I prefer each character to look distinctive and unique, which is why I am very happy about Hasbro's recent efforts to add value to redecos with new heads, different transformations, vehicle mode bits and the like. That's all I ever really asked for!

When was the last time Hasbro did a repaint that was deluxe or bigger. I mean just repaint no new parts or alternate parts that were always part of the mold, that was also a different character from a previous use of the mold...

I'm not a fan of voting on peoples posts. it just seems very passive aggressive to click 'down vote' and not add anything to the thread. and up votes are exactly the same. to my mind the whole point of a forum is discussion and being able to just easily agree or disagree takes the discussion out of the equation.

Fallback? Deep Dive? Banzai-Tron? Strafe?

I think pretty much everything after that was either the same character or had a (p)remold.

They were all tail end of the movie line right? Wait were they before or after Classics and Friends Thundercracker?

Deep Dive was around the same time, and Strafe right before IIRC.

Do you mean the DotM Comettor that came in a 2-pack with a Prime, Walmart exclusive? That Comettor is a deluxe.

Hmm, apparently I managed to read that as "bigger than a deluxe."

Walmart had some DotM exclusives in addition to Comettor... such as G2 Gobot Sideswipe.

All the Wal-Mart Deluxe toys were same bot repaints so they don't count. Comettor does but he only came packer with a Voyager as an exclusive that Wal-Mart probably asked for. I bet the same thing happened with the Cybergliph Target toys too. The two biggest retailers said the wanted something exclusive so Hasbro jive out some easy yet interesting repaints.

So when did Hasbro do a mass market, not the same bot repaint in deluxe or bigger, outside the movie line?

I'm omitting the movie line because retailers demanded so much of it from Hasbro they they almost had to do repaints just to keep them happy.

Generations - Red Alert, Thundercracker, Bumblebee (but that's the same character and he doesn't really count)

RTS - Fallback

Classics and Friends was never repainted. Silverstreak was, and the Classics and Friends Seeker mold was used and Thundercracker twice before it's use in Generations.

The lightbar and it's placement was even different from Henkei to Generations Red Alert, effectively making the backpack engine thing unmountable in robot mode (other than the gun).
