Seibertron.com member Galvanize_Prime posted some info in our forums about a charity event taking place soon in Toronto, Canada. Transforming for Sick Kids, in its 3rd year running, is in affect and G_P gave us the goods on how you can be a part of it. Here's what he had to share:


Hey guys,

I'm organizing a Raffle Fundraiser in Toronto, Canada at Scotiabank Theatre for the Therapeutic Clown Program at SickKids Hospital, and I have Hasbro Canada as one of the main prize sponsors. We've got SICK prizes so far. They've donated over $2000 worth of toys which I'm using to craft "The Ultimate Transformers Fan" Prize package along with smaller prize packages that aren't as the Ultimate...

Thanks for reading!

Cheers,

Will

The Winsdor Star has an article about a 3 hour stand off with heavy police forces and a man who pointed with a G1 Megatron.

WINDSOR, Ont. -- A 25-year-old Windsor man who allegedly pointed a handgun at his neighbours was arrested on Wednesday after police officers surrounded his west end residence.

The three-hour standoff forced the lockdown of a nearby elementary school, and drew a police response that included tactical officers, body armour, submachine guns, sniper rifles, a police dog and the mobile command centre.

“We treat everything as real,” said Insp. Kirk Mason at the scene after the man had been taken into custody.

“There will be a search of the premises and hopefully we’ll come up with whatever it is that he was waving out the window at his neighbours.”

But the man’s friends accused police of overreacting, and said his supposed handgun was a toy.

“It’s a Transformer,” said William Findley, 24. “It turns into a Luger. It’s an 80s-style Transformer... He’s had a really bad day. People are treating him like crap.”

Hey everyone, (anyone with any experience modding/fixing a toy probably doesn't need to read through this, just make sure you end up swapping both sets of parts, not just the knee).

If you're like me, you've bought RotF Superion and remembered what a huge piece of crap the Stormjet (Silverbolt in this instance) is.

You might have noticed that his knees in robot mode bend the wrong way entirely and that he doesn't quite transform properly.

That's because he is wonderfully and wrongly assembled every time someone goes about making a batch of this mold.

This fix is easy, you will need a small screwdriver, Phillips head preferably and some work space.

The problem:
How to fix your RotF Superion in under 15 minutes
Nope, that ain't right...

First step: Disassemble

Now, you're going to take the legs apart. Be sure to keep everything in order and leave those black hip joints (in yellow circles) in place. They have springs in them you don't want to lose and we'll get back to them later.

Second step: correct the lower leg parts


You will separate them like so

the piece pulls out of the leg via a pin you can simply slip out, like so

Third step: Swap knee joints

Forth step: Reassemble lower legs



Fifth step: Swap hips

You will need to use care when swapping the front part of the hip to the other side. It's easy, but it's a hassle if you let those little springs pop

Insert the lower leg portions in and close up the hip pieces. Did you do it right? Yours will look like this if you did:

You're done. Easy eh?

So what does this little fix get you?

Seibertron.com member Electron has posted a link on the Toy Forum featuring new images of the FansProject G3 Trailer along with some images of the Asian Powered Commander armor set. The pictures of the G3 trailer, posted on Asian fan site HK-tf.com, show the finished exterior/interior of the trailer including the painted under carriage, deck, and grappling arms. The mirrored "stealth" gimmick is also much clearer in these pictures.

The images of the Armor show the slight alterations to the TFCon version highlighted by some chromed bits, apparently to better tie it to the Henkei Convoy figure.
