Our friends in Ontario seem to be as lucky as our friends in the Cincinatti, OH area...

According to member Magnimus:

"Following a post made by RandomFerret at TFworld2005 about TF Animated deluxes spotted at an Ontario, Canada Wal-Mart, I followed up on the posting and went to that location, the Eastgate Mall in Hamilton, Ontario. Lo and behold, I too found the first wave of deluxe figures (Bumblebee, Lockdown, Prowl, and Cybertron Optimus) for sale on the pegs. I bought them.

Here's a picture of my receipt (personal info removed) and a picture of my haul. More pictures forthcoming as I open up these badboys."

So Canadian toy hunting transfans, you may want to take a trip to your local Walmart, especially if you live near Hamilton, Ontario!

And the rest of us will wait impatiently and jealously as you get yours first! Congratulations! You can view the Seibertron galleries of the first few waves of Transformers Animated figures here to get yourself motivated!

Earlier this week, auctions were pulled off eBay for 3 upcoming Classics figures (Sunstreaker, Prowl and Tankor). It appeared that Hasbro was finally taking a stand against the early releases and/or prototypes from China that keep showing up early on eBay (often referred to as "stolen" or "lunch time specials"). now has confirmation that Hasbro is indeed starting to go after these types of auctions (please see the message below). It is our hope that Hasbro will begin going after the G1 knock offs as well and put an end to the increasing problem of the market from early releases of upcoming figures and knock offs.

In the interest of full disclosure, the eBay user mentioned below, chicagorhinox, is the account for Ryan Yzquierdo, the owner of and the writer of this news post.

Dear chicagorhinox,

You recently listed the following auction-style listing:

The listing was removed because it violated eBay policy. We notified members who placed bids on the item that the listing has been canceled.

The rights owner, Hasbro, Inc., notified eBay that this listing violates intellectual property rights. When eBay receives a report of this type of violation, we remove the listing to comply with the law.

Trademark infringement is unlawful and violates eBay's policies. A trademark is a unique sign (such as a name, word, phrase, logo, or symbol) that a company uses to identify its products and/or services.

Using another company's trademark in a way that may confuse buyers about the source of goods or services, or confuses buyers into believing that the seller is affiliated with, sponsored by or endorsed by the trademark owner is both illegal and against eBay's policies. Examples include counterfeits, unauthorized replica items and items that bear the brand or logo of a company without that company's permission.

Guideline: If the product you are listing bears the brand or logo of a company, but it wasn't made or authorized by that company, don't sell it on eBay.

Parallel import laws may prohibit the unauthorized importation of branded products into certain other countries. Sellers who intend to ship branded items outside of the country for which the item was intended for distribution may be required to get authorization from the trademark owner to sell those items in other countries. This may be true even if the good is genuine and legal to distribute in the seller's country.

This is going out to all members.

Many of you have been asking how the souvenir distribution will work at BotCon.

In order to allow the most people the opportunity to purchase this year's BotCon souvenirs, (no, I'm not announcing what they are) we are limiting each Primus, Substitute Primus, Energon, Dealer or Protoform badge holder to a limit of one set of each of the souvenir figures (per person). Mini-Con packages are not eligible to purchase these items on Thursday or Friday.

This limit will be in place for Thursday night and Friday. IF there are any left after 5:00 PM on Friday. We will make these available to any registered attendees (including Mini-Cons) starting at 8:30 am on Saturday. IF there are any left at 9:00 am, early bird general admission will be able to get in line and at 10 am regular general admission will be able to get in line. The limit on Saturday will also be one per person.

Please note that the souvenir figures are available from the Club Store at BotCon and you must have your badge from registration pick-up in order to purchase anything on Thursday or Friday.

Please do not email or call with questions concerning the figures, costs, or quantity as we cannot answer those questions. All will be revealed on Thursday night at the show.

See you at the show!
