No it's not the newest molds that we reported earlier (Grievous Spaceship and Tie Bomber), instead it is a couple of figures that we may have forgotten were coming out. These two new Transformers were found at a Target in Washington.

The Obi Wan Kenobi version of the JEDI STARFIGHTER w/hyperspace ring from 'Attack of the Clones', originally Saesee Tin, but of course, now with new head sculpt and colors.




The other is the Clone helmeted version and repaint of the Republic Gunship. Previously it had a much less garish color scheme. It is now blue helmeted instead of the previous yellow.




You can see them in Seibertron's galleries of toy fair, here.

Earlier this week, auctions were pulled off eBay for 3 upcoming Classics figures (Sunstreaker, Prowl and Tankor). It appeared that Hasbro was finally taking a stand against the early releases and/or prototypes from China that keep showing up early on eBay (often referred to as "stolen" or "lunch time specials"). Seibertron.com now has confirmation that Hasbro is indeed starting to go after these types of auctions (please see the message below). It is our hope that Hasbro will begin going after the G1 knock offs as well and put an end to the increasing problem of the market from early releases of upcoming figures and knock offs.

In the interest of full disclosure, the eBay user mentioned below, chicagorhinox, is the account for Ryan Yzquierdo, the owner of Seibertron.com and the writer of this news post.


Dear chicagorhinox,

You recently listed the following auction-style listing:

170208223501 - Transformers Animated Bulkhead Red Prototype Complete


The listing was removed because it violated eBay policy. We notified members who placed bids on the item that the listing has been canceled.

The rights owner, Hasbro, Inc., notified eBay that this listing violates intellectual property rights. When eBay receives a report of this type of violation, we remove the listing to comply with the law.



Trademark infringement is unlawful and violates eBay's policies. A trademark is a unique sign (such as a name, word, phrase, logo, or symbol) that a company uses to identify its products and/or services.

Using another company's trademark in a way that may confuse buyers about the source of goods or services, or confuses buyers into believing that the seller is affiliated with, sponsored by or endorsed by the trademark owner is both illegal and against eBay's policies. Examples include counterfeits, unauthorized replica items and items that bear the brand or logo of a company without that company's permission.

Guideline: If the product you are listing bears the brand or logo of a company, but it wasn't made or authorized by that company, don't sell it on eBay.

Parallel import laws may prohibit the unauthorized importation of branded products into certain other countries. Sellers who intend to ship branded items outside of the country for which the item was intended for distribution may be required to get authorization from the trademark owner to sell those items in other countries. This may be true even if the good is genuine and legal to distribute in the seller's country.

Please be assured that your listings have not been targeted in any way. Although there may be similar items currently listed on eBay, we review all listings that are reported to us by eBay members or Verified Rights Owner (VeRO) program participants. We rely on reports from our members to help maintain the safety and security of our Community. We encourage you to report any items by using the REPORT THIS ITEM button on the listing so we can quickly remove any other items that should be removed.

Your listing(s) may be eligible for relisting through My eBay. If your listing is eligible, you will see the listing in your Unsold Items page within My eBay. Listings that are not eligible for relisting will not be visible in the Unsold Items page.

To relist your item, sign in to eBay, go to My eBay to your Unsold items, and select the item that was canceled -- it's highlighted with a yellow banner. Before relisting, please make any changes necessary to ensure that your revised listing is in compliance with the law and eBay policies. You might want to check your other listings for similar violations as well.


Thank you for your understanding.

Sincerely,

Temporary Timeslot For TF: Animated?!? *Update*

Get ready to set your DVR's to see TF ANIMATED now. Why you ask? Well, simply because it appears that Cartoon Network is again flirting with the disastrous timeslot of 6:00 AM for a fledgling Transformers show, something that experience should probably have taught them has been like bringing death to newer Transformers cartoon series.

Alright that's a little overzealous of a conclusion, but this same schedule was done to the entire A/E/C series after each premiered at a more friendly timeslot originally. Once moved these series seemed to quickly lose favor with many individuals who would not even try to watch them due to the very unfriendly time, and thus, they lost a lot of the working adult TF community's support, as well as, many TV viewing children's support. This is pure conjecture of course, the shows may also not have been good enough to keep the support and popularity no matter what time they were on, but this did not seem to help.

While it is true there are many legal and illegal options to seeing episodes after they have aired, will younger children have these resources available to them to keep interest in this show going, after all it is aimed at them?

According to the CN schedule "Elite Guard" will be the last new episode as well as the last episode on Saturday/Sunday mornings for the foreseeable future.

Starting Monday, April 14th Transformers Animated will start airing at 6:00 AM with "Home is where the Spark is" The schedule lists rerun episodes at this timeslot until at least April 24th where the listing ends with "Survival of the Fittest".

What happens after that? Will TF ANIMATED be returned to the original weekend timeslots when new episodes are to be presented? Will it stay at weekdays at 6:00 AM which has put off many viewers in the past?

You can view the Cartoon Network schedule yourself here, and keep watchful of it for more updates, as they fill it in for later dates.

What do you think? Is the schedule change permanent? Is it friendlier for children than the collector community? Is it a minor, or major inconvenience, or not inconvenience at all? Do you care?
___________________________________________________________

*UPDATE* Overcharge has found that TV.com states that TF ANIMATED will be returning on Satuday, April 26th with the new episode, "Return of the Headmaster".

So are they simply just replacing the worn Cybertron reruns with Animated reruns? It appears so. But we have our eye on you Cartoon Network, we have our eye on you...

All Hail Megatron: Shane McCarthy's Sales Pitch

IDW Publishing's new Transformers Comic Editor Denton Tipton has kept his blog updates flowing like the Guinness from an Irish Pub on St Patricks Day, with his latest update letting us go inside the mind of "All Hail Megatron" writer Shane McCarthy.

Denton has given us an excerpt of the sales pitch McCarthy used when selling the "All Hail Megatron" series to the head honchos of IDW...

Just how bad can it get?

The measure of any hero is the obstacles he faces or the villains he must vanquish. If a hero's villains are weak or ineffectual, then the hero, by the most rudimentary of logic, mustn't be all that powerful or indeed heroic. If we're going to see what our heroes are truly made of, we need to deliver a villain (or, in this case, villains) who push the heroes to the breaking point and beyond, that not only challenge them physically, but mentally and spiritually as well.

With the Transformers, we have at our disposal some of the greatest villains ever to grace modern-day pop culture. These guys are, apparently, the nastiest of the nasty; what is Megatron if not a 60-foot-tall metal tyrant with a nuclear cannon strapped to one arm? So, let's take the gloves off, unhook the leash and see just what the Decepticons are made of.

If we're going to understand the validity of the Autobots as protectors, it's about time we say what would happen if the Decepticons were left unchecked!

So what are we really trying to do here?

We'll be bringing a “real world” approach to the book to show the ramifications of the Transformers' civil war on our planet. It will also be the goal of the series to better explain, reveal and expose the characterization of the individual Transformers and their respective ideologies.

In the end, execution is everything, and we'll be achieving all of this by using a wild, widescreen-style approach. Each issue will slam the reader in the face with exciting visuals and continuing reasons to come running back each and every month. More than anything, we need to restore the awe and majesty to the Transformers and remind people not only of their continuing relevance as fictional characters, but of the very reason we fell in love with them to begin with.

Nothing can top the sheer spectacle of giant robots battling it out on our planet for the sake of the universe!


The teaser/prequel for "All Hail Megatron", "Focus on the Decepticons" will be available in comic stores around the globe from today Wednesday 9th of April 2008.

IDW Publishing's Editor in Chief Chris Ryall has found out himself that he has been nominated for "Best Editor" at the British Eagle Awards.

Unfortunately IDW was overlooked for a nomination in the "Best Publisher" Award, and it barely comes as a surprise that no Transformers Comics were nominated for an award either.

To see why Ryall believes you should vote for him as "Best Editor" over the other candidates, check out his blog, and you can head on over to the British Eagle Awards Voting Page to cast your vote.
