Canada seems to be the place for new sightings, with 2 different sightings of the so far elusive Animated Voyager: Blitzwing.

Cybertron.ca member Mega_Zarak has found Animated Blitzwing in a Toys 'R' Us in Anjou, Quebec.

Furthermore, Seibertron.com user Ultra Primal has spotted Animated Blitzwing at yet another Toys 'R' Us store in Canada.
In addition to his spotting of Animated Blitzwing, UltraPrimal also spotted Universe Ultra figures Powerglide and Onslaught, and even a Movie Deep Desert Brawl to boot.

Remember to post all your sightings in the Transformers Sightings Forum, for the benefit of your fellow Transformers fans.

Please note, Seibertron.com does not condone the buying of products that are not official HASBRO or TakaraTomy products.

Yahoo Japan has auctions for five minibots molded in clear plastic. Information from Ricochet at TFW2005 may clear up the origin of these toys:

:
According to the description by the seller:
this is a prize sample given from Takara in the past. Sample was made, but pure clear-white plastic lacks its toughness, so it was never produced. Surely copyrighted by Takara, molded on the toy.


I cannot confirm, or deny that the translation of the description says that, but if it does these are some very rare pieces of G1 awesomeness. What do you think, are these awesome very rare pieces of Transformers history that were unproduced or not? Would you like to own them, or would they be a skip for you? Cost too much anyway? Discuss the auctions below.

Megan Fox, "No Action Figures, please."

Megan Fox, in a statement made to ENI, states her very strong feelings about having an action figure made in her likeness, revealing a possible reason why we have not seen any larger movie figures with the human characters' likenesses:

:
"I told them (HASBRO) that I would literally commit suicide if they made an action figure of me. I will kill myself."


Obviouisly, Ms. Fox feels quite strongly that she does not want to be immortalized in plastic. One wonders if HASBRO showed her the Movie Screen Battles Pack: The Final Stand with Longarm and Bumblebee, and her torso inside the cab of Longarm representing a pivotal scene in the end battle of the movie? Perhaps, this likeness was not what she was talking about, but something more along the lines of the real life accurate action figures one sees in other lines such as wrestling, and McFarlane.

We would never wish anything bad to happen to our favorite sassy starlet, but I bet there are many fans of Transformers, and Megan Fox, who wish she felt differently.

Looks like our friends over at TFW have found an interesting new Universe two-pack.


The picture of this two-pack shows the Galaxy Force version of Cybertron Optimus Prime, and Cybertron Crumplezone paired together in one very large box.


Not much is known about this set yet, but the box is said to be Canadian, and is said to have the title, "Ultra Twin-Pack". Is it a store exclusive like Sam's Club or Costco, or from somewhere else? You can view the original story here and discuss below!

Courtesy of our friends at TF-08.net, we now have robot mode pics of this smallest size class of the Animated Starscream toy.






And there is a previous discussion thread, originating from the alt mode pic news here. They also recently dug up a picture of the bot mode too. Feel free to join in there, or post your thoughts here.

Thanks Archatron!
