For those who may have missed all the news a few months ago when Masterpiece Megatron was released, a number of Australian collectors found their MP Megatron's seized by Australian Customs.

They had decided that MP Megatron was to be classified as a "replica firearm" and could only be imported if you had appropriate licenses and what not.

Not all Megatron's were seized and some made it through, but a number of them were which spurred Australian Collector Tiby (a practicing Lawyer) into action to help his fellow collectors get their hands on Megatron without too much hassle.

The result hasn't been highly overwhelming but the Government and Customs have made regulations for collectors to import and own Megatron legally.

The full story

Tiby :
Announcement on 25 September 2007 by Police Minister David Campbell. Click here

I am setting up a collector's club which will be open for collectors to join, and thereby fulfil one of the requirements for owning Masterpiece Megatron. To quote the Minister, the requirements are as follows:

· Undergoing a criminal and probity check;

· Providing a genuine reason for ownership of the toy;

· Providing proof of membership to a collector’s club; and

· Abiding by safe storage, surrender and disposal requirements.

The criminal and probity check is a Firearms Registry requirement, and usually done by local police.

A genuine reason for ownership of the toy is that a person is a collector of Transformers.

Proof of membership of a collector's club will be part of what I will provide in the club.

Safe storage includes a locked cabinet. I recommend the following:

Display and Rack Systems

I will update this site as the club progresses with more details on how to join.

Thanks for your support!


The collector's club he's setting will no doubt be Australian only, however if you're Australian and already a member of the international club that should cover you.

Either way, plenty of hoops to jump through just to own a toy.

TakaraTomy has updated their Transformers website with great new pictures and information:

MP 06 Skywarp, which was released a few weeks ago and is already sold out in Japan.

Music Label Convoy has been released. The site features a new Transfomers “Tech” song. Music Label Convoy comes with a trailer that transforms into an iPod speaker docking station. Convoy also features a new mold head that similar to his Masterpiece style.

Music Label story:
The Japanese context loosely translates as follows-
The Decepticons are using music as means to brainwash humans. The Autobots have intercepted their plan and are countering back with their own transformable music players and speakers to unbrainwash the humans.

New Beast Wars line up includes spots for three new mystery figures.

It appears some of our Australian brethren will get another shot at nabbing this highly desirable piece.

According to the Allspark, SDCC Alternator Rodimus will magically be appearing on shelves at select "Mr Toys Toyworlds" in the very near future.

This is very similar to what happened with Alternator Nemesis Prime last year as well.

So let's all start showing our Australian members all sorts of kindness, and maybe, if they can find some, they might pick us up one for a trade.

I'm sure the Australian Sightings Thread will be quite a popular place in the weeks to come!

Good day Mates!
