Transformers Comic Scribe Simon Furman has updated his blog once more, this time pertaining to this weeks release of Titan UK's Transformers Magazine #11.

UK#11 will feature Part 3 of the "Twighlight's Last Gleaming" story, which is set in an alternative Universe where the Decepticons were victorious in the battle of Mission City.

Be warned there are some spoilers below:

Starscream continues his machinations this episode, throwing a spanner in the Autobots’ carefully laid plans to further his own diabolical agenda. Forced into desperate action the moon-based Autobots head for Earth and their respective dates with destiny. And Bumblebee takes on Megatron (no prizes for guessing how that one turns out) and Mikaela takes on Frenzy (not as one-sided as you might think) and Ironhide and Ratchet come up against… well, that’d be telling!

Titan UK #11 will be available in the UK on Thursday the 26th of April 2008.

Yes, yes, I'm sure you're thinking to yourself, "Didn't we already have a Legends size Starscream using the Cybertron Starscream style, and hasn't that already been repainted at least 3 times?"

The answer is yes, but in an odd twist of Transformer's karma, the Cybertron Thundercracker Legends mold has been repainted as Universe Starscream (Legend size).

You can check out the auction here showing Starscream in his packaging.







At this point, Universe Legend Starscream joins only Universe Legends Red Alert (a repainted Cybertron Legend Hot Shot) and Onslaught (Cybertron Legend CDT Red Alert) as others we have seen so far.

You can view the Toy Fair 2008 galleries here featuring more pictures of ALL the CLASSICS/UNIVERSE toys that will be available this Fall!

The TRANSFORMERS name and sale of merchandise continues to grow. HASBRO has reported a 13% gain in revenue from last year this time. An excerpt from HASBRO.com:

Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE: HAS) today reported net revenues of $704.2 million, an increase of $78.9 million or 13% compared to $625.3 million a year ago, or an increase of 9%, net of the favorable foreign exchange impact of $25.4 million. The Company reported net earnings of $37.5 million or $0.25 per diluted share, compared to $32.9 million or $0.19 per diluted share in 2007.

"We had a strong 2007 and the momentum continues in 2008, with growth driven primarily by TRANSFORMERS and LITTLEST PET SHOP, as well as PLAYSKOOL, STAR WARS, BABY ALIVE, MY LITTLE PONY and board games," said Alfred J. Verrecchia, President and Chief Executive Officer.

"While it's early in the year and there is still a lot of business to be done, our first quarter performance reinforces the confidence we have in achieving our full-year financial goals," Verrecchia concluded.

It's official TFA toys hit CINCINNATI!

A press release that you can find here at the Botcon site states that Walmart, K-Mart, and Toy R' Us in the Cincinatti area would be the stores that travelers to Botcon and local folks could find the early release of many Animated toys possibly including The Animated Battle Pack, Deluxe and Voyager size toys (Wave 1 only), and others.

Of course, the major emphasis of Botcon this year was the new ANIMATED cartoon, and the guests, logo, and now this news enforce that idea.

This is should indeed be good news for the Seibetron contingent that is building and building for the trip to Botcon. Hope to see you there, Animated toys in hand or not!

If you are not quite sold on the toys yet, check out Seibertron's galleries of the toys, and then perhaps pick yourself up some next week at your excursion to Botcon!

Japanese site Toyhobby.jp has a listing for a soon to be coming Exclusive Henkei seeker. So the question on everyone's minds is, who is it? Thundercracker, Skywarp, or someone? The only thing shown is a picture that is the blacked out Henklei Starscream mold. If Stormrider, or any of the other members of our community can read the Japanese written there, perhaps there will be more of a clue to who it will be.

Here is the link to Toyhobby's site, and the image and text.



Seeing that it is an exclusive, it will still be hard to come by, but this gives hope to the growing contingent of supporters for Japanese Henkei releases of other seekers!

Interesting information has turned up in the form of a posted email on

http://newsreader.visualmedia.com.hk/vm ... e_id=86372

in which Brian Savage of FunPublications warns of pending legal action against the sellers of stolen BotCon toys. This issue and push to eliminate some of the illegal auctions appears to be gaining momentum. We will keep you updated as this unfolds...

???: "Brian Savage"

??: Stolen BotCon items
??: Tue, 15 Apr 2008 21:43:20 -0500
This is going out to each Ebay seller who has recently tried to auction
BotCon toys. All of they toys you are selling are stolen. You know
this
when you buy them out of the package.

As you see, I have the power to cancel your auctions and I have each of
your personal information provided by Ebay.

If you do not want us to continue prosecuting you through the police
and
Ebay (who will cancel your account), you need to return the stolen
property to me or to Hasbro in China.

If I don't here back from you that you have shipped our items back in
48
hours, I will press forward with both Ebay and the police. Consider
this your only warning.

You can send the items to me at:

Brian Savage
Fun Publications, Inc.
225 Cattle Baron Parc Dr
Fort Worth Texas 76108

or

Antony Bao
Hasbro
$)AIn[Z;*GH3G6+2?9$R5Gx6~:E3'7?NeB%/ Antony Bao/ 0755-26901222-693

Thanks for your attention in this matter. Even if YOU didn't steal it.

Selling stolen property is a punishable offense.

Do not ever purchase ANY Transformers from Chinese auctions or vendors
as Hasbro is also looking to prosecute.

Regards,

Brian Savage

Newsarama have posted up an assortment of images from the upcoming IDW Publishing Transformers Series: "All Hail Megatron", thanks to "All Hail" writer Shane McCarthy.

"All Hail Megatron" will be a 12 part series, written by Shane McCarthy, and illustrated by Guido Guidi, taking place deep within the pre-established IDW Universe, set 1 year after the completion of the Furman penned "Revelation" Saga.
