Seibertron member Mr Dogworm has passed along word on the issue of the release of 20th Anniversary Prime and G1 Reissues in UK Toys 'R Us stores, courtesy of Bluestreak56 at Transformers@themoon:

let me just make this clear. The following reissues have entered the TRU warehouse as of 29/1/06:

Inferno £14.99
Prowl £14.99
Smokescreen £14.99
Thundercracker £19.99

Also 20th Anni Prime has entered the warehouse as of 29/1/06 £49.99

All Cybertron classes have also arrived in the TRU warehouse on this date.

Please be aware however, just because something is in the warehouse does not mean it will be distributed this week. It may be a few weeks before you see them on shelves."


While this is indeed great news for UK G1 fans, the closing sentence does cast some doubt, and Dogworm does mention that the Hub message board states that the reissue listings may be left over from a few years ago. You can view the thread by clicking here.

Our own GetterDragun has come across some interesting information about a Alternator Cadillac XLR. Here is what he said:

"Well, this could confirm that Takara has no more involvement with Binaltechs. Supposedly the next Alternator to come out (before the Civic) is a Cadillac XLR. Now if that doesn't say Megatron...

We have recieved an email from Pat Payne who states that "Hasbro has teamed with Tatsunoko Productions & Takara for the next TF cartoon. It will be written in the USA and will begin airing in both the US and Japan later this year." Takara had recently purchased shares in Tatsunoko Productions. An article about Takara's purchase can be read here.

Could this be Takara's big suprise? Before people get their hopes up they should wait for official conformation. After all Takara is supose to be taking a break from any main Transformer lines until the movie. However they could always change their minds. Keep an eye out for more information in the future.

Hasbro UK Answer Questions at Toyfair UK 2006: Including Alternators Jaguar?

Prowlus2 of Transformers @ The Moon managed to corner a Hasbro UK rep at this weeks Toyfair UK 2006, gaining some very interesting infomation, including the possible release of an Alternators Jaguar? He does stress that 'talking to this said rep is not like talking to Hasbro itself so take some bits of this interview with a pinch of salt' Here's what they had to say:

Q: Given the current figures being found in Argos, can you ask them if they plan to release the full Cybertron line in the UK?

A: We are trying the best to release the full cybertron line. With hope everything will be here within this year (sic)

Q:a) Who is responsible for semi-random releases of Transformers toys in Europe, i.e. not every toy coming out in every country around the same time (worst example: Alternators Meister and Cybertron Megatron only being released in Italy so far)? Is this a decision made by Hasbro US, or is it down to each single European Hasbro branch

A: Hasbro Europe are fully reposible for the distribution of tf toys around europe and the UK

Q: 1) Does Hasbro UK regard the Transformers line as anything important or does it view it's Star Wars licence as the only viable and profitable toy line in the way of action figures?

A: Transformers is a CORE brand with hasbro europe but it has to share its sales with action man and starwars . Right now hasbro uk have to "juggle" their product lines because of character options overtaking them last year in terms of sales

Q:3) Why does the UK have to wait so long after the US releases. Surely with the internet it would pay Hasbro to market items in the UK (and Europe) within a few months of the US releases and not a year later. This stance leads only to less sales in that country (as most people import them) and thus makes the line appear to be a worse seller that it is in reality.

A: It has always been like this unfortunately theres not much Hasbro europe/uk can do about it

Q: Cybertron aired on October 2005 , why has it taken to so long for for the accompanying toys to go through

A: Toonami was insisting airing Cybertron early as a continuation with Energon. Unfortunately Hasbro UK was still inundated with handling Energon toys . A few releases had to be posponed because of cybertron's impending debut

Q: Will there be any UK exclusive transformer toys?

A: Cannot say but Hasbro are working on their next Alternator which is Jaguar sportscar (he said that honest) after the ford GT

Q: Howabout figures such as 20th aniversery Prime ?

A: We are still undecided on releasing such a huge item

Additional : Hasbro UK didn't want to release Prowl or Skids is because, "There are not many Integras and Scions plying british roads" A bit stupid since they seem to be interested in Prime whoes a dodge RAM


Yeah the original thread here at TF @ the Moon.

Stickshift has sent us the following e-mail concering his latest toy and robotics project 'MechRC'. Although not directly related to Transformers he tells us Transformers Artist and designer Don Figueroa was involved in the concept/product design and the products box art. Read on and visit the MechRC Website the learn more:


Hi,

As you may have seen from my profile, I am a freelance toy and robotics engineer working out of the UK and China. We are all very excited here about a brand new product, MechRC, being launched at the Nuremberg Toy Fair this Feb. "What does this have to do with TFs?" I hear the masses ask, well I'm pleased to tell you that TF's very own Don Figueroa has been involved with some of the concept/product design and has also been producing our box art images for us.

As for what the product is, you'll have to wait until the launch date on 02/02/2006, but the clues are there at www.mechrc.com

Oh, and thanks for reading my shameless plug!!!

The Allspark has posted some rather interesting information regarding the fate of the Tenth Anniversary Beast Wars figure line. Allspark Administration Mouth04, who works at a local Target store, had the following to say:

"Within 2 weeks of their set date, alternators has briskly sold 20% of its stock nationwide at target stores. BW 10th has sold only about 10% of its stock with slightly more inventory than alts. Those figures lead me to believe BW may be on sale in the near future."

Although rather interesting and very noteworthy, it is not a 100% confirmation. Only time (and higher sales) will tell for sure.

An anonymous tipster posted a link at TFW2005 of what he claims to be Transformers movie test footage from Industrial Light and Magic (ILM). Click here to view the footage. If this turns out to be true it would appear Sideswipe may be making an appearance in the the movie.

UPDATE: Don Murphy has confirmed that this is NOT Test foottage from the forthcoming Transformers, it is a good fake. See the story here.
