Jim Sorenson (jms98!) wrote:OK, now, this is an interesting one. When Bill and I were trying to sell the book of Transformers animation models that would eventually become Transformers: The Ark, we created these pitch documents to hand out to editors at IDW and to folks at Hasbro. I stumbled across three, and thought that there might be some interest. These are unique items, part of the process of how a book gets made and sold, and I'd love to see them find their way to good hands. You get one of the three items, they're all identical. I'll be happy to autograph it if you like.
Jim Sorenson (jms98!) wrote:This is a pretty cool item: transparent versions of the three car brothers: Wildride / Mach Alert / Speedbreaker. (Known in the US as Prowl, X-Brawn, and Sideburn). These are MIB, box in good shape, never removed from packaging.
Jim Sorenson (jms98!) wrote:A beautiful set of BotCon 2007 toys, MIB in a smoke-free environment. The missing Seekers from the Classics line: Thrust, Dirge, Thundercracker, with Dreadwing and the Gobot Bugbite thrown in for good measure. Domestic buyers only, please.
Jim Sorenson (jms98!) wrote:All of the loose figures from BotCon 2007! Alpha Trion (who is actually Shattered Glass Alpha Trion... sinister!), Weirdwolf, Springer, Huffer, and the attendee-exclusive Mirage. Kept in a smoke-free home.
Seibertron.com's Transformers and more wrote:This listing includes the Fall of Cybertron "Survival Kit" lunch pail, "Soundwave" Energy Drink, a chocolate "Energon Bar", "Inside the Apocalypse" foldout card, and a book showcasing "The Art of Fall of Cybertron". This was a gift sent out to various media outlets to hype the upcoming Fall of Cybertron game. This is your chance to get this one-of-a-kind unique item. Please refer to the photographs for additional details about the items included with this listing.
Seibertron.com's Transformers and more wrote:This listing includes the following items:
* Transformers Timelines Over-Run (Runabout) with instructions, bio card, and box
* Transformers Club Exclusive Runamuck with instructions, bio card, and foam insert
* Statue of Liberty replica (sold at tourist shops in New York city, retails for $50) with custom "Humans Are Wimps" painted on statue, which homages the Runamuck and Runabout's appearance in Marvel's Transformers #23. Statue is 21" tall, it's heavy (weighs 5 pounds) ... I'm not sure what statue is made of. Includes original box and styrofoam that I received the statue in. This statue was featured in the Runamuck and Over-Run galleries on Seibertron.com.
Seibertron.com's Transformers and more wrote:The item in the photographs below is the actual item you will receive. The white parts on the toy, as well as the small Headmaster figure, have yellowed a little bit (which you might be able to fix with an H202 bath). The factory applied stickers are worn and it appears to be missing some stickers. It includes the small Headmaster figure which transforms into the toy's head, the large gun, and both small guns (which attach to the helmet, which is unfortunately missing). Please refer to the detailed photographs for additional details about the item included with this listing.
Seibertron.com's Transformers and more wrote:This item is mint-on-card. It has been removed from the package. Double Punch has some minor paint chips as well as some wear to the toy and minor sticker wear, typical of this particular toy and of a toy of this age. The "arm-flailing"/attack mechanism on his back randomly makes the right arm work. The left arm no longer moves when the button is pushed. A small, barely noticeable polyband was wrapped around the inside of the upper left shoulder joint to increase friction so that the arm can be posed (it used to loosely drop down). These issues are pretty typical of loose specimens of this figure. This item is a very nice display piece as you can see from the pictures below. If you have questions, please let me know. Thanks!

At the time of this autograph, Aaron Archer was Hasbro's Director of Global Design and Development for the Transformers brand.

This is the famous Blue Cliffjumper released by IGA in Mexico.
Some of these Mexican releases were located here in Holland.
Why is not known. So the chance to find this one in this condition is unique.
First the bubble:
The bubble is firmly attached to card.
It is super bright.
There is a crack on the right side of the bubble as can be seen in picture 3.
Then the card:
It is super clean.
It is bright....no fading!
No big scratches or something. (I would have shown that with a pic)
It is not completely flat...there is what I call: a little "wave" in the card.
All original stuff, I do not sell or collect reissue or KO stuff,
and I never will cause its all fake in my opinion.
