We have been notified of an interesting listing over at Wal-Mart.com which features a very large and very heavy Ultra Magnus figure. It is unknown at this time whether this is a reissue of the Generation 1 Ultra Magnus, or a possible release of the Masterpiece UltraMagnus, so treat this as a rumour for now.

See the listing here and if you place an order be sure to tell us "what's in the box" when it arrives. And Remember, you can get all your toy news in the Seibertron.com Toy Section.

UPDATE!

It is confirmed by Seibertron.com member Bee-otch that the Walmart.com listing for Ultra Magnus is indeed the Toys R Us exclusive G1 Re-issue Figure!

Seibertron member Parkmania has shared with us an image of a new set of the Wizards of the Coast, 3D Transformer Battle Cards. Some of you will remember the sets sold up to now were based on the Transformers Movie designs, seen on the official WotC webiste here, to refresh your memory.

This new set seems to span more generations, as the preview states that the set will include new beast modes, and classic characters like Optimus Prime and Grimlock.

Our own Liege Evilmus has come across some new Transformers Movie merchandise. Here is what he reported:

"I found something odd in Wal-Mart today. They had a large display with Movie Prime and Megatron BubbleBath Soap.

The best part is on the back of the robot toppers are push buttons that activate a punching feature to help knock out filth.

For cheese sake I had to get them. They had Spider-Man too, but somehow he seemed less rediculious"

This past week WizardUniverse.com has been hosting Transformers Week.

They have been featuring articles and interviews with movie celebs, toy exclusives, Botcon, the video game, and other Transformers related content. Each day they added more and more articles to their database.

Online Editor Rick Marshall personally invites the community of Seibertron.com to come and visit to read some of the articles:

"Hey there, I'm the Online Editor over at WizardUniverse.com, and we're finishing up a big ol' week of articles, interviews, galleries and such to celebrate the "Transformers" release (appropriately titled "Transformers Week")... I just wanted to make sure the crew at Seibertron.com was aware of it, as we have some great content on the site that TF fans should really enjoy, including a few great interviews with voice actors, some toy guides, and just about everything else that come across my desk that was TF-related. I'm a bit of a TF fan myself, so I'm ridiculously excited about all of these stories. I know some of it might be old news to your readers here, but I hope there are a few articles that the Seibertron crew finds interesting."

If you want to check out the articles here is the link to the Transformers available content.

Obviously, there is a little bit here for everyone. Interviews with movie stars Megan Fox, Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, John Turturro, Jon Voight, and Michael Bay. Collectors can find toy, comic, and TF merchandise focused articles, and more!

Some of the content is from the recent issue of Toy Fair #120, which as you probably remember, was a 'Transformers Collectors Issue' and some seems to be brand new. Enjoy!

Today the Transformers Convention Club Advisory Panel held a bit of a club meeting for those that wanted to attend. They took questions, and left some very leading hints as to what is coming, although they would not say exactly on any of them.

-They read the reactions of the fandom to the boxed set, and understand the position of those who are upset, but look at it this way: Hasbro was not going to produce the characters in CLASSICs, so why not make a set of figures that are desired, instead of one that people do not really want.

-The club website is a work in progress still, but they are looking to add pre-order ability to the club store, but otherwise keep things (like the forums) for cost's sake.

-If you don't like the exclusives prices, unfortunately that is not determined by them. Lower production runs cost more money, thus they make the exclusives more expensive to create, thus they need to sell a lot to be able to lower the prices. Takara does not like to make low production runs. If they make them, they like to do the different things at the same time (Example: Club free figure Breakaway, and the convention exclusives were made and shipped at the same time to try to lower costs).

-If you want more club exclusives figures you need to support them by buying what they have made in the past. Air Razor and Astrotrain still have about 200 waiting to be bought...they need support to give us more exclusives. The more support, the more exclusives we will get.

-Benson Yee's, "Razor's Edge" story is complete, and will be posted soon!

-The club would like to be able to offer its members access to HASBRO toys before other stores get them, but HASBRO's toy allocation department does not consider them a priority due to the lack of numbers interested in buying from them. If you would like that to change tell HASBRO.
Walmart is basically the company who calls the shots on case sizes and assortments, etc., because they are HASBRO's largest source for allocating sales.

-If you would lile to purchase things like the upcoming SDCC exclusives from the club store, tell HASBRO. Brian said they were allocated none of them this year!

-Brian mentioned the size of the Transformers Club Membership would soon surpass the size of the membership in the GI Joe Club.

TOY NEWS!!!

-Universe Seacons- brought up a couple times. They tried to dodge the question by saying...
"This Seacon thing sounds a little fishy to me."
"What's a Seacon? Some kind of bug?"
*I took the meaning of their gestures, playfulness, and seeming lack of knowledge to mean, they are on the way!"

-Unproduced Titaniums- If you've looked at the site galleries of the HASBRO tour, I am sure you saw the prototypes for Arcee, Cosmos, Shockwave, and Bumblebee/Cliffjumper. A member asked about them, and they danced around it (similar to the Seacons) saying that those may appear somewhere in the near future...They would not say where or how, but again, vague in answers.

-Choices on exclusives were explained (like blue translucent CLASSICs Mirage, instead of transparent clear), and they discussed some ideas they had that would never see fruition (Deluxe Insecticons set made from BW Insecticon molds).

Finally, they asked about locations for future Botcons, would people like a Transformers/Joe Convention together--which they mentioned, could lead to some very interesting exclusives, anyone want it to happen at Disney World or Disneyland, and that they would try to go Spring and Summer alternating for the two conventions. Europe and the UK were brought up, but they said it would be too cost prohibitive to get everyone and everything over there (sorry guys). Canada was also brought up, and there was a low moan from the crowd, indicating that they really didn't support it (sorry to you guys too!).

Overall, it was quite informational. They asked if people would like to see a leader class size exclusive, for a small percentage increase in price (10%, I think).

They stressed that they try to do everything keeping cost at a minimum amount, and trying to make it affordable. If we want things to be more affordable, more people need to be committed to being in the club, buying the exclusives, and participating in the events. If more items are produced or needed, the price goes down overall for those who are purchasing.

Electronic Registration was brought up, and they said it would significantly increase the price to have a system like that in place.

Finally, they mentioned that they do look at suggestions for the club, the club exclusives, and so forth. They asked the members in the audience a lot of questions, trying to involve us in the decision making process. Unfortunately we were no help, as we seemed to be equally split on everything.
