-TFCC Forums- Ready for more rumors involving those highly desired convention collector's figures?

Tuesday, we were teased with information about this set being mainly Autobot based...

OK, while we are working on finalizing the convention details, brochure and registration forms, we wanted to start the speculation game:

"For one young Autobot..." is all we have revealed so far. While we tend to guard the convention sets and souvenirs closely, I want to let you know that we are very excited about what we have waiting in the wings!

The set we have planned features a team of select Autobots never before featured in G1 in this way. The timeline we are spotlighting is new, yet very familiar...

Let the games begin!"

Now more news from thus same thread, this time Pete Sinclair (who happens to participate in our very own Official Question And Answers Thread for the club) adds his two cents...

"Far be it from me to wreck your all's ideas. I just know that this year's set is going to rule!"

Perhaps, you might want to start questioning Pete on our Q/A pages for the club, to see if he might reveal something more.

Check out the official Transformers Collector's Club!!!

Speculate based on this new information below.

New toy law to adversely affect collectors market?

It appears problems caused by the lead toy recalls have yet to cease: a new federal law taking place as of February 10, 2009 will illegalize the re-selling of children’s toys and clothes unless tested to be lead free. You can read the entire article from by clicking here.

A new federal law is raising concerns and questions nationwide and here in Austin.

On February 10, 2009 it will be illegal to re-sell any used children's products including toys and clothing. That is according to the U.S. Consumer Protection & Safety Commission who pushed for the new laws after dozens of toys were recalled in 2008 because of lead concerns.

Toys, clothing and other items used by children under 12 will be subjected to lead testing and will have to have labels on them to prove that they have passed inspection.

What is raising the ire of parents and business owners far and wide is what this will mean to clothing, toys and other children products made before February 10, 2009.

Gary Walthall, the owner of Once upon a Child, a resale shop specializing in children's clothing and other items, is afraid that he'll have to close up shop.

Adding to the confusion and frustration is the fact that the U.S. Consumer Products and Safety Commission is not returning calls or e-mails to the countless re-salers and even journalists who have tried in vain to get clarification on what the law means to garage sales and how it will be enforced.

How will this affect you and the collecting market as a whole? That‘s still unconfirmed, but there is relevant information coming from GovTrack.US. From Sec105, 1, D, ii:

The term 'retailer' has the meaning given that term in section 3 of the Consumer Product Safety Act (15 U.S.C. 2052), but does not include an individual whose selling activity is intermittent and does not constitute a trade or business.

And from Sec201 a, a, 4:

the efforts of the Commission to reach and educate retailers of second-hand products and informal sellers, such as thrift shops and yard sales, concerning consumer product safety rules and product recalls, especially those relating to durable nursery products, in order to prevent the resale of any products that have been recalled, including the development of educational materials for distribution not later than 1 year after the date of enactment of this Act.

Stay tuned to as more updates come in.
