Mercurynews.com- What exactly do poker tournaments and Transformers have in common besides some Double Dealing? Henry Orenstein...

Who is Henry Orenstein you might ask? A Holocaust survivor turned toymaker, turned inventor, turned 80 year old poker tournament champ, Orenstein is credited in the early 80's with convincing HASBRO to market and produce Transformers toys in the U.S.

Besides being so important to our community and the history of our toys, he has also invented the idea for the hole card camera, used when televising poker tournaments to show observers the cards that the players have in their holes, allowing us to know what they know without the other players in the game knowing, and allowing commentators to better analyze play. For this invention he is being enshrined in the 'Poker Hall Of Fame'.

You can read the short article here.

Thanks to Scaleface for also digging up that he patented rub sign technology!!! Whoa!

Zona Hobby has a pre-order for MP Grimlock with new images showing his detail, articulation, accessories and size. It is said that this figure will be around the same size as the MP Starscream mold. Actually disregard that as it looks a lot more like being as tall as MP Prime.

Accessories include:
Crown
Drinks tray
Energon sword
IQ- swapping device
Blaster

TakaraTomy has updated its Transformers website with three new entries.

The Music Label page has been updated with the previously seen red/orange “Exile” version of Optimus Prime. Don’t feel alone if you’re not up on your J-Pop trends and haven't heard of Exile. Exile is a Japanese boy band that has had a few recent hits. Their current tour is titled “Exile – Perfect Year 2008”. Like the previous Music Label Transformers, this figure works with iPods and iPod Nanos. This figure will be released in November.

On the Events & Campaign page official pictures have been added for Black Megatron & Sunstorm. Both figures are eHobby exclusives and will be released in February 2009.

Japan to get Remolded Henkei Dirge and Thrust!

It has finally happened. Japan is getting the last of the Seekers for a complete set of six. It also appears that Takara went the extra mile with these two releases, as Henkei Dirge features G1 accurate wings rather than just a simple repaint of Ramjet like the Botcon release.

Silhouette images of both Dirge and Thrust are now listed on Gambo Store.com.

Toy Hobby Market also has the silhouette of Dirge on its page. It is unknown, but likely, if these two releases are store exclusives like Thundercracker and Skywarp.

Pre-orders for both begin November 13th and will begin shipping in March of 2009.

We will update when more information becomes available.
