Hasbro has released some new pictures of the upcoming TF Universe Superion repaint. The first picture below shows Superion in Revenge of the Fallen packaging, which has never been seen before. It is unknown at this time if this item will replace the 25th anniversary packaging that we've already seen for this item or if this is a running change.

Hasbro's PR company contacted me a short while ago to let Seibertron.com know that the programming error has been resolved with the Transformers brand survey that was launched yesterday. Many users were encountering difficulties while attempting to complete the survey. The issue has since been resolved. You can complete Hasbro's Transformers brand survey by clicking on the following link:

http://www.hasbro.com/common/surveys/tr ... survey.htm

Thank you to everyone who informed us that there was a problem yesterday. As you can see, communication is the key to resolving problems.

Hi All -

Hasbro was recently made aware of a problem with its Transformers Collectors Survey posted to the brand’s website. A glitch in the programming was resulting in a termination of the survey when/if a participant selected “Female” at the onset of the survey. This was an unfortunate mistake in programming and not intentional. The issue has since been fixed and the survey is now operating as intended.

Thank you all for your continued support!

In an effort to bring the best deals possible to our members, we have learned of a Thanksgiving Sale for Hasbrotoyshop.com. The sale runs from November 26th to November 30th. According to the site, the sale will feature discounts on over FOUR HUNDRED items. As a preview, several prices have been reduced, such as Supreme Optimus Prime and Leaders Bulkhead and Megatron. The site advertises that some items may be reduced up to 50%, but the items listed above are not discounted that high.

Hasbro is also offering a free $10 gift card for future purchases with a $50 purchase and free shipping on orders of $75 or more.

In addition, Hasbro has been sending out a discount code to valued customers that anyone can claim. Use V3VC0TU to get $5 off any order.

Don't forget about the other codes available, such as TF2009 for 10% off, if that helps get a better deal than the $5 off code.

Create Your Own Transformers Holiday Ornaments

With the holiday season kicking into full gear, trying to find ways to satisfy that Transformers need while not killing your wallet has been the main focus of many Seibertronians. Here's one way you can get into the holiday spirit without making another trip to the ATM.

With the purchase of a Robot Heroes set, and a couple items I picked up at a local hobby store, I created a Transformers based holiday ornament that wasn't just a figure hanging there. An idea of Seibertron himself, we present Hero Ornaments:

First we start with a set of Robot Heroes figures. Best thing out this is that this can work with any figures from the line, but I picked G1 Sunstreaker and Galvatron to be my test ornaments.

{L_IMAGE}
(Note: I tried to mimic Seibertron.com's top notch gallery set up, but it didn't work out so well.)

Next you'll need some additions. I got these Christmas deco's at a Michaels store nearby. I spent about $5.00 USD on it.

{L_IMAGE}

Now the building materials. I used a hot glue gun because its fast drying and solid. You can get the same affect with some super glue or other heavy bonding glue, but if you ever want to revert these guys back to regular figs, good luck.

{L_IMAGE}

Notice I included the base of the packaging for the two. This will serve as the platform for the ornament. I bonded the bottom and top together to get a sturdier piece.

Next, prep the additions. I couldn't find the Santa hats on their own, so I bought this pack of Santa ornaments and removed them. Bonus is that these came with the hanging string attached, downside was they were also glued on and had to be taken off very carefully.

{L_IMAGE}

Now just glue and set. Make sure to see exactly where you want your extras to go prior to placing glue. Like I said before, a hot glue gun or super glue will set pretty fast, so you're gonna have to know where you want what you want before you decide to glue. Let the figures set for about 5 minutes so the glue bonds cure before hanging.

{L_IMAGE}

And there you have it. Transformers holiday ornaments that actually look like holiday ornaments.

Happy Holidays Seibertronians!

HK-TF.com has posted some new images of the alleged Movie Soundwave figure from the Revenge of the Fallen toy line. The pictures looked to be darkened out, not showing all the details of the figure, so I've taken the liberty of lightening them up a little bit without trying to compromise the integrity of the original pictures.

From the looks of the images, this appears to be his Cybertronian mode, reminiscent of Transformers Cybertron Vector Prime:

Could this mean we will see three Movie Soundwave figures? Cybertron mode, Satellite mode and an Earth mode? Stay tuned to Seibertron.com to find out.
