We received this bit of great news about the storyline from the old collector's club comics ('The Wreckers'):

"The Allspark has been blessed with the chance to bring you the entire script for the unpublished The Wreckers issue #4, the 'final' installment in the Wreckers maxi-series. The title was originally meant to be an ongoing story, but evolved to serve as an interstitial comic, linking the Wreckers and the Universe title, but that plan never came to fruition.

With the prelude to the long-awaited WRECKERS finale arriving in the fan community's mailboxes, it was suggested that the full script for the proposed 4th issue of the WRECKERS mini-series be made available for everyone to read in anticipation of the story's conclusion. Although its contents will be incorporated into the Club's final installment, this will be the only opportunity to read the full dialogue and enjoy writer Rob Gerbracht's vision in this post-Beast Machines adventure. Enjoy!

Special thanks go out to the TCC magazine for the opportunity to finish this story and Rob Gerbracht, Glen Hallit, and Jon Hartman for providing the script and story notes. Additional thanks go out to Karl Hartman and Dan Khanna for their own contributions to this anticipated story.

Also, stay tuned, because in the coming days, a special "deleted scene" will be published featuring the final fates of the Mutant team of Icebird, Poison Bite, Soundwave and Razor Claw!

We want to thank our friends at the Allspark for sharing this great news with the members in our community as well!

FYI--The script download took me a few times until it happened. Be patient!

No Go on the Transformers and Terminator Crossover Comic?

Apparently all is not as it seemed with the rumoured Transformers and Terminator Crossover Comic.

Chris Ryall himself has posted on the IDW Forums the following reply to the rumours:

if this ever came to pass, it wouldn't, either. But keep in mind this was mentioned at a rumor site. There's no deal in place, but people have been talking about this one from the start, simply because Simon Furman is writing both books. I think it'd be cool and feel organic to what we've been doing for that reason, but there's nothing signed or scheduled, it's just talk, the same way the JLA one was a year ago.

So for now it seems the rumour was just a rumour. The Seibertron News team will keep you up to date if any developments occur.

Tomy struggling with Japanese Market, possible Adult-focused ideas brewing!

Have you ever wished that Transformers were targeted, more towards you? Well, that dream may come to fruition.

According to this article, Tomy/Takara is severely struggling, and is looking for new options.

The entire toy market in Japan is on the decline for two reasons. The first of which, is the Lead Paint scandal at Mattel. This has caused Japanese Toy Companies stock prices to fall dramatically.

The other reason is that the youth population of Japan is severely shrinking. So with fewer children for these companies to market their products to, they are looking at targeting new markets--Adults.

This could very well be the reason that the Encore series has been released from Tomy. It could also explain why Tomy is looking to reissue several rare and obscure characters like Skylynx.

So it looks like this could be good news for collectors, but it could possibly spell the doom for the next generation as what makes a collector is having the toys when we are children to begin with.

Yesterday it was brought to our attention that there would be a new Chevy promotion involving a certain exclusive toy, 'Universe Swerve', a seemingly brand new mold, similar in size to a deluxe with Alternator type realness.

Today, Doctor Paragon shares with us the first eBay auction for this seemingly rare toy with plenty of new pictures to share.

Check out the auction here and then come and discuss your hopes with the rest of us, that this will be part of the new UNIVERSE line at some point, and not just a Chevy promotional toy.

Will this become one of the most desired U.S. exclusives around? We'll let you know in the Seibertron.com Toy News when we find out more about the mold, the promotion, and the possible availability of this cool toy at retail (if ever?).

Shhh...$5 off $25+ at hasbrotoyshop.com - EXPIRES 06-30-2008!

Enjoy and use it wisely!

So were you thinking about buying a new car, and wondering how in the world you could work it so you could get a free collectible toy out of the deal too?

Look no further. Apparently Chevy is having a promotion and all you need to do is buy an Aveo and you get a really cool new and exclusive Transformers Autobot Swerve (new mold!!!) limited to only 2000 pieces.

We have two links for you. One is to AcToys showing all modes and a size comparison to deluxe movie Concept Bumblebee.

Autobot Swerve on AcToys

And the other is an auction...

Exclusive Autobot Swerve Auction

Let's hope there is a way to get this that does not involve shelling out tons of money. Or those of us who are Transformers completists will also be driving brand new Aveo's shortly.

"Paramount and DreamWorks Animation together will receive about $150 million in financial incentives for their commitment to HD DVD, according to two Viacom executives with knowledge of the deal but who asked not to be identified."

First Re-Issue Ultra Magnus and now this...

Yes, it appears to be true, but don't get too excited, the prices are a bit outrageous at $98.72 for each, except Starscream who is $79.88.

All are listed as IN STOCK even Megatron.

Here are the links:

Optimus Prime

Megatron

Starscream

Soundwave

A product description from Megatron:


Features & Specifications

Transformers Encore original style transforming robots
TRANSFORMER Megatron - G1 New PackageDesign. This 6 inches Transformer Megatron PVC figure in the alternate mode of a Walther P 38. Megatron is the Decepticon leader. This is a remake of the Original Collection piece, which are nearly impossible to find now and was one of the best selling items when the first edition came out. This revised figure features some new parts (i.e. new molds).
Shipping Weight (in pounds):

3.0
Product in Inches (L x W x H):

16.0 x 16.0 x 8.0
Assembled in Country of Origin:

USA and/or Imported
Origin of Components:

USA and/or Imported
Wal-Mart No.: 000784718"


I cannot imagine a lot of people will buy it from Walmart as you were able to get a set for less than half that amount from most online retailers.

However, many have sold out, so this option is now available.

Is this a test to see how well imported collectible toys would sell on the wholesale market? Or something else?

Let us know what you think!

As always, we'll try to keep you informed of any new toys news, in the Seibertron.com Toy News section.

A few weeks back, Chris Ryall showed a sample teaser of the entry for Beast Wars Bazooka, from the soon to be released BEAST WARS PROFILES comic books by IDW.

More line art has been found and shared. The pictures are of fan favorite Injector, Saberback in his more than interesting third mode, and Transmetal Tarantulas in spider mode. You can see the pictures in the thread here.


"Transformers: Beast Wars Sourcebook

Simon Furman has teamed with Ben Yee, a consultant for the Beast Wars TV series, to present an all-encompassing, unifying resource about Beast Wars. From Air Hammer to Wolfang, the Sourcebook highlights the characters, worlds and technology from all generations and incarnations of Beast Wars. The Sourcebook details who each character is, what side they are on and what their abilities are. It features all-new art from a host of the greatest Transformers artists, including Don Figueroa, Guido Guidi, James Raiz, Nick Roche and Rob Ruffolo, as well as many more. This special series will be comprised of four bi-monthly, 48-page, ad-free editions."
