Last week, we featured a story about one of the rare pieces of Transformers history posted to the Disciples of Boltax Blog; the Hasbro Briefing Binder for the 1986 animated, feature film. The binder, a collection of artwork, character bios, product images, and additional notes, was given to Ron Friedman, writer of the 1986 film, to assist him during the creation of the movie's storyline. On Thursday, Jim Sorenson updated the blog with two more downloadable PDFs, both installments coming from the same tab in the Binder. Some interesting bits of information from this latest update include:

- Jetfire was originally named Fireball and was originally going to be the Autobot Aerospace Commander.
- According to the document, Sludge was originally named Piledrive.
- The binder included images of Takara's Dinosaur Robo box art for four of the original Dinobots. Swoop was not included.

Jim has been gracious enough to let us mirror these latest updates to our Seibertron.com servers for easy access for our members and guests.

Part One can be accessed HERE.
Part Two can be accessed HERE.

The original post on the Disciples of Boltax site can be viewed by clicking HERE.

And as a reminder, the Hasbro Briefing Binder will be auctioned off at a later date with the proceeds going to The Hasbro Children's Hospital.

The other day, we shared a unique piece of Transformers history with you-a draft script written in 1985 for Transformers The Movie, the animated film released in 1986. This script was part of a collection of memorabilia that was purchased by Jim Sorenson, our friend at the Disciples of Boltax blog, and several other collectors. Now Jim shares with us another piece of movie history with us; the Hasbro Transformers Briefing Binder that was given to Ron Friedman, writer of the 1986 film, to introduce him to the current characters (at that time) in the Transformers universe to assist him in creating the storyline for the film. The original document is a huge collection of images, bios, comments, and even retail pricing for nearly all of the original Generation One characters, including some early design variations like Megatron's under-sized head and Rumble's rounded gun just to name a few.

Because of the size of the document, it's being uploaded to the Disciples of Boltax blog in several parts. Three of them are currently available and if more become available, we'll post a news update to let you know. You can download and view them at this link HERE.

And as with the Draft Script, the Briefing Binder will be auctioned off at a later date with the proceeds benefiting The Hasbro Children's Hospital.

Shaun Yzquierdo, the brother of Ryan "Seibertron.com" Yzquierdo, works in the auto industry and was at last week's SEMA Show in Las Vegas. SEMA, which stands for Specialty Equipment Market Association, is an organization made up of auto manufacturers and aftermarket retailers that has a huge, annual trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada. At this year's show, Shaun came across Anzo USA, a manufacturer of aftermarket lighting accessories for cars and trucks, who was displaying Transformers branded tail lights and lighting accessories. Included in their product line is a set of replacement tail lights for the 2010 Chevrolet Camero that features a lighted, LED Autobot logo. Also overlooking things at the Anzo USA's booth-Bumblebee himself! No word on when these products are scheduled for release but if we learn more, we'll post an update.

Thanks to Shaun for sharing these photos with us.

Actual "Barricade" Saleen Mustang Available on eBay; Early Christmas Present?

Transformers News: Actual "Barricade" Saleen Mustang Available on eBay; Early Christmas Present?

Did you recently have a big payday and are ready to start your holiday shopping for the big Transformers fan in your family? Why not get them their very own BARRICADE from the first Transformers live action film? One of three Police car Saleen Mustangs that represented Barricade in alternate mode is currently up for auction on eBay and is available for bid through tomorrow. The auction description for the car reads:

Motoexotica wrote:Motoexotica is proud to offer one of only 3 custom Saleen Mustangs built by Steve Saleen for their role as 'Barricade' in the 2007 movie blockbuster "Transformers". Steve Saleen created only 3 'Barricades' for the film and this was the #2 car, also known as the camera car. It was heavily screen used in the movie due to its attention to detail and no damage. The car features all of the standard Saleen options including 3V Saleen modified engine, mated with a 5spd transmission, full Saleen body kit, Saleen hood, Saleen sail panels, Saleen rear wing, Saleen 20" wheels, Saleen leather interior, Saleen gauges, Saleen shifter, Saleen badging, Saleen suspension, Saleen exhaust, Saleen carbon fiber front chin, and Saleen carbon fiber rear diffuser.

For the film the FX department added a Police front pushbar, state of the art Police low-profile LED lightbar, front and rear strobe lights, camera mounts, Wilwood stunt brake line-lock, tinted windows, police decals, "to punish and enslave" decals, Transformers Decepticon decals, and Michael Bay's lucky number 643. All of the lights and strobes work with no problems and are operated by a control box on the right side of the center console.

The paint on the car is nearly perfect with no major imperfections. The car has been well taken care of throughout the movie as well as after. Decals are all in good condition and not peeling off. The tires all have good tread life left on them and the wheels are free of any scuffs or curb rash.

Inside, the car retains its original interior and has not been gutted like many of these movie cars. Both seats are in great condition with no wear as well as the carpet, dash, headliner and door panels. The most major modification to the car was taking off of the supercharger. Since this was a camera car that had microphones installed, the supercharger whine would have been picked up by the microphones. Due to this, the car does not have a supercharger installed currently and does not come with one.

With this vehicle being reintroduced in the 3rd Transformers film, its value is sure to go through the roof. An interesting bit of trivia is that these cars were built by Steve Saleen as the prototypes for the S281 Extreme. We have seen a lot of these movie cars and can honestly say that this is the cleanest movie car we have ever seen. It was purpose made for the movie and only has 7,200 original miles. The car is 100% street legal and is being sold on a clean, Missouri title with VIN number 1ZVFT82H755115527.


While there's little doubt that this was one of the cars in the first movie, the rumored appearance of Barricade in TF3 described in the auction details is highly suspect and very doubtful.

Yes you read that title right, Bandai is now officially making Transformers products which means they have actually bought a licence from both Hasbro and TakaraTomy the circle is now complete. Why well almost 30 years ago Hasbro bought the rights to release a few of Bandai's transforming robots to sell them under the Transformers brand, and now Bandai is in on it.

However these are just headphones or ear buds, which ever name suits you better, they have no gimmick other than their design, so they don't transform like the older Music Label Rumble and Frenzy headphones.

Site sponsor HobbyLinkJapan.com has two sets for pre-order Cybertron (Autobot)and Destron (Decepticon) both priced at 2,362 yen, currently around 29.08 USD. If these are the only Transformers products Bandai plans on releasing or if there will be more is still unknown.
