We were just contacted by a law firm on behalf of Marlboro & Phillip Morris USA. They informed us that the MP-23 Exhaust figure infringes on their trademark and trade dress for products marketed and sold in the USA.
The mark in question is generally shaped like this:
This mark is found on the hood/roof of the MP-23 car in red, and also in smaller green shapes on the left and right fenders. They are concerned because these marks cannot be used on products that could be intended for children as dictated by the Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tobacco_Ma ... _Agreement).
We must comply with the requests they have made in order to avoid legal action with Phillip Morris. We have removed the MP-23 listing from our website. Your preorders have been transferred to a generic unpublished listing in case the product is changed or modified before release and would no longer be infringing. If the product is not changed, we will cancel all preorders and we will not be able to sell this product.
Import site Anime-Export has revealed their preorder listings of the upcoming RID toyline and they've also provided release dates and toy images. Unfortunately the images are not the best quality, but they do give us our first look at the Fixit figure.
Fellow fan and Seibertron.com board member, NicholasPrime, has found the Kohl's exclusive Rescue Bots Optimus Prime Rescue Trailer at retail, and provided us the link so you can order one from the comfort of your home!
The price is $39.99 and it's available now

Way back at Botcon we had a glimpse of a two pack being released containing the Smash and Change Optimus Prime along with Flip and Change Grimlock from Age of Extinction. This set has finally been sighted at a Kohl's store in Grand Blanc, Michigan by site owner Seibertron's dad Kevin Yzquierdo.
This set is another opportunity to grab these up if you missed these upon their first release, or if you're looking for a fun gift for the younger Transformers fan in your life this holiday. There don't appear to be any deco changes to either toy in this set, at least not to this Seibertronian! You can also order the set online for $44.99 at Kohls.com, however be warned that their sale price is actually higher than the retail price of buying these two separately at many other outlets.
The Toys R Us Japan Exclusive Transformers Movie Advanced Optimus Prime Rusty Version. by Takara now has a new shipping date on the Toys R Us Japan website. It is stated that the toy has a December 8 shipping date, which means that this once sold out toy will have additional supply soon.
'Tis the season for sales, but fortunately it's not quite that (*shivers*) season...yet. Why battle with the crowds and cold and horrible weather later, when you can save a few bucks and have your next Transformers purchase delivered right to your door right now?
