Seibertron.com resident Kitbasher Jin Saotome has posted another update in the Transtopia Art Forums with more tips on how to fix, create and just overall improve your Transformers.

Here's what Jin had to share with us:

Hey all! People have been asking me to post a quick guide on how I made Guiltar's chest pieces so here it is. There's many other ways to parts copy and I'm in no way a skilled kitbasher who can make Transformers from scratch using just styrene sheets. So this is just a guide on how I was able to quickly make parts for my custom and may be useful to some of you. Enjoy!

Jim Wyatt of Kablamm has informed us of a couple new releases that will be coming out real soon. What are they? Radio Controlled Robot figures. Not just any RC Figures, but RC Figures designed by Transformers Artist Legends Andrew Wildman and Don Figueroa!



MECH RC is the name of this new line of figures. First up is:

Shadow Stalker



The first release will be Shadow Stalker, a 17-servo fully programmable robot with remote control functionality. The look of Shadow Stalker was provided by the legend that is Andrew Wildman

Ground Pounder



Ground Pounder was designed by the equally amazing Don Figueroa.

Jim also gave us a vid we can check out to see these bots in action. The Evolution of Robotic Dance, which is based on the smash hit "The Evolution of Dance" by by Judson Laipply, is a vid that shows these Mechs having some fun.

Stay tuned to Seibertron.com for more info on these new Mech's as it becomes available.

I have first hand experience with this one folks, as well as, many other folks can attest. The likes of giant Animated Optimus Prime toys are being found at several stores across the U.S. including Targets, and Walmarts.

Featuring an automatic transformation, sounds, phrases, and lights, ROLL OUT COMMAND OPTIMUS PRIME is out and available.




Very worthy to note is that numerous sources have also been able to pick up the Universe Voyager class figures Blaster (repainted Cybertron Soundwave) and Heavy Load (a repaint of Cybertron Quickmix).

Blaster and Heavy Load have done a mini photo shoot here where the profiles have also been recopied. Of note: HASBRO made a tiny error and called Blaster's bird bot Blockrock on his package pic, but Flashback in the profile. Which is it supposed to be? Take your pick!

Finally to note, members in the community have noticed that the tag has been put up on shelves for Universe Ultras, but there are very few that have found them at retail in the U.S. yet, but it should be very soon for them to get released as well!

So optics open, peepers parted, and check the Transformers Sightings Forum for dialogue and hints from collector's in your area, and the Sightings Database for even more store by store information in your area.

Just found these on the Japanese Transformers Image Board of BT-21 Arcee.



Holding a bow and arrow (not included), Arcee stands ready to attack those foolish enough to be her enemy in her new upgraded form.

Arcee is a repaint of the Alternator Decepticharge mold, originally rumored in the Japanese market to be BT Wild Rider, then BT Black Arachnia(widow), and now well, it's BT Arcee!

Arcee has been released and her import status be updated soon as well. At this time there are still pre-orders available.

A couple of TF fans have decided to share a bit more with the TF community.

First off we have Stealth, err, Goldbug... I mean ELITE GUARD BUMBLEBEE by Tamo536. Straight up repaint of the Original Animated Bumblebee, but according to the reviewer the 'stingers' are now able to better fit into the arms...

And also a huge picture montage courtesy of the Japanese Transformers Image Board showing Sentinel in package, with other Elite Guard members, and with the Headmaster unit firmly placed on his shoulders.



Everybody should want to get Sentinel as soon as they can...

eBay member toys_yuen has an auction for the upcoming Target exclusive Universe Springer with a couple of nice new pictures!

Note the auction is out of package and does not include Universe Ratbat or the reprint comic.

Springer is a repaint of the Cybertron Evac/Live Convoy mold which is also being repainted for future release as UNIVERSE Blades. A lot of love for a really nice mold. If you don't own one already, you may want to check out one of these two (or both) upcoming releases.

You can see some previous photos of Springer and Blades in the Botcon 2008 Events Gallery.

Universe Springer and Ratbat will be a Target Exclusive two-pack scheduled for release in late 2008.

Recently released in Japan, the somewhat controversial Henkei Skyfire and Henkei Ramjet in their packaging.

Why somewhat controversial you might ask? Only because some fans believe Japanese releases to be more cartoon animation accurate, thus better, and others believe that the newer updated look of the US Classics/Universe versions are far superior.

And then there is the use of chrome on the Henkei versions which often may seem uninspired to some, and to others a nice touch to differentiate these releases even more from their US market releases.



Site Sponsor BigBadToyStore still has pre-orders available for these.

Genzhao has placed a nice gallery of the repaint of the CLASSICS Jetfire toy up to share with the Transformers community. It includes many pictures of the alt mode, with and without booster pack, and the robot mode, with and without battle helmet.

It is not yet known when we can expect this repaint to appear in stores, but sometime late 2008, early 2009 would be the expectation.

This is another of those former Micromaster names being re-used as an idea for a repaint for an existing toy. No word on how the MM's feel about being relegated to repaint status...
