Did Hasbro Really Issue This Statement?

Transformers News: Did Hasbro Really Issue This Statement?

In a word: No. What follows was a clever little jab at current events in the fandom written by a fan:

"All attendees are to be aware that only Official Hasbro products are to be allowed in. Anyone wearing a homemade Transformers t-shirt will be asked to leave the premises. Any merchandise for sale such as Marvel Transformers comics will be removed due to license problems, and they also contradict current brand usage. A version of TF:TM dubbed to replace the phrase "H*t R*d" with the accurate character name of Rodimus Major will be screened. All toy dealers must be aware that they can only sell figures and accessories that conform to current toy safety standards and licenses.
Remember, we´re fans just like you,
Sincerely,
Hasbro PLC"
This "statement" has been making its way around the boards today. And, for once, I´m going to squash a rumor instead of spreading one. This is NOT true. It´s biting sarcasm for the most part, but becomes an obvious joke when it makes mention of editing Hot Rod´s name. Don´t worry, dealers will still be selling Takara products (and prototypes) and you won´t have to remove your home-made Transformer shirt. Hasbro would not have the authority to stop dealers from selling Non-Hasbro products (with the exception of bootlegged G1 tapes).

Does a FULL SCALE Optimus Prime exist in the UK?

The following has been taken (and slightly edited) from the Energon Pub.

In Australia, There is a radio station that goes by the name of Triple J. On tuesday afternoons they have a guy come in and talk about all of our favourite tv shows from the 80´s, and this week it was transformers. On Wednesday, they were contacted by a gent from the UK who, with a lot of help from some friends and a large bank loan, built a working transformer out of two APC´s. It was, of course, Optimus Prime, and apparently, they could get him to transform and stand up. The guys said that as soon as Hasbro got word of this unbelievable creation, they threatened to sue the pants off the creators if they ever used him. So Optimus Prime is apparently sitting in a garage somewhere in the UK, gathering dust.
Could this be true? Does a real-life Optimus Prime (or Convoy to our Japanese readers) exist in a garage in the UK? Some of you may recall a similar rumor floating around a couple of years back (before yours truly was around to help keep track of such things). Such a think would definately be possible, especially considering Optimus Prime´s fairly simple Transformation, but it would take a pretty good chunk of change to make it a reality. Then there´s the problem of getting it to stand up. As with many rumors, this is "Definately possible, highly unlikely!"

Since Soundwave´s TAKARA reissue was announcced several days ago, an interesting little rumor has popped up. The rumor in question is that Soundwave will include an Energon Cube accessory. There´s absolutely nothing to confirm this at present, however if TAKARA continues the trend of adding little "goodies" with their reissues, this isn´t completely out of the realm of possibility.

Rumors are circulating in the Anime Industrie that a Fansubbing group called "Anime Video" is considering of subtitling the TFG1 series composed of: Super Robot Life, 2010, The Headmasters, Super God Master Force, and Victory. But here is the best part...if they do decide to go on with this project, they are only going to subtitle 202 episodes and the feature length movie, so that all 5 seasons can flow into a single continuity. Stay tuned to Seibertron.com and The Professor Smooth Rumor Page for more information as it becomes available!

We´ve all heard that Unicron is going be quite large (16 inches) and that Tidalwave will be a massive figure as well. But a recent picture that´s been brought to our attention shows just how big these figures really are. Notice the Beast Wars figure in the background...

OTFCC $65 figure actually a 2-pack?

[UPDATE!] This has been confirmed!

I´ve just recieved word that the repainted Sideburn is actually part of a 2-pack of figures that´ll be released at OTFCC. What is the other figure in the pack? It´s the same figure, with a different colorscheme. Since the $65 exclusive was long thought to be a repaint/remold of either RiD Optimus Prime or RiD Ultra Magnus, this comes as quite a shock. This is in no way confirmed, so take it with a grain of salt for now.

Worst name change ever?

This afternoon, we all heard the news that BotCon 2003 would now be called "The Official Transformers Brand Collector´s Convention". And about thirty seconds later topics popped up on just about every Transformers Message Board in existance. I´ve had the pleasure of reading these posts on several different boards and there´s yet to be a single voice supporting the name change. Many people have used the phrase "Worst namechange EVER!" in homage to The Simpsons´ Comic Book Guy. However, is it true that this is the worst name change ever? Certainly, The Official Transformers Brand Collector´s Convention isn´t as catchy as BotCon. But that doesn´t mean it´s the worst name change EVER. Would could forget Bumblebee changing his name to Goldbug? Or the alteration of Hot Rod to Rodimus Major? Many fans would argue that Rodimus Major was the worst name change ever. Until it´s been absolutely confirmed, it´s still just a rumor. In an effort to bring you the truth about this rumor, cast your vote here to determine if this is, in fact, the worst namechange EVER!

The latest rumor to reach my inbox concerns Heroes of Cybertron wave 4. The rumor is simply that it will feature a Fortress Maximus chase figure. Exactly how this would work is a mystery. It could be a "chase" figure in the same way as the He-Man chase figures are. Meaning that it´ll be in plain site, but will ship in very small numbers, perhaps replacing two or three regular figures in a case assortment.

Here´s a rumor that´s been popping up in my mailbox a lot in the last few weeks. It´s rumored that one of the BotCon exclusives be a Machine Wars Jet given a familiar G1 colorscheme? Could THIS be the Hotel Exclusive? After all, it IS bigger than a Basic, smaller than a Mega.
