Featured eBay Auction #1
Transformers: The Ark Pitch document by Jim Sorenson & Bill Forster

Check out this item from eBay seller Jim Sorenson (jms98!). You can view all of this seller's items by clicking here.

Jim Sorenson (jms98!) wrote:OK, now, this is an interesting one. When Bill and I were trying to sell the book of Transformers animation models that would eventually become Transformers: The Ark, we created these pitch documents to hand out to editors at IDW and to folks at Hasbro. I stumbled across three, and thought that there might be some interest. These are unique items, part of the process of how a book gets made and sold, and I'd love to see them find their way to good hands. You get one of the three items, they're all identical. I'll be happy to autograph it if you like.

Seibertron.com's Transformers and more wrote:The item in the photographs below is the actual item you will receive. The white parts on the toy, as well as the small Headmaster figure, have yellowed a little bit (which you might be able to fix with an H202 bath). The factory applied stickers are worn and it appears to be missing some stickers. It includes the small Headmaster figure which transforms into the toy's head, the large gun, and both small guns (which attach to the helmet, which is unfortunately missing). Please refer to the detailed photographs for additional details about the item included with this listing.

Featured eBay Auction #8
DOUBLE PUNCH Transformers Action Master Elite Euro European UK 1991 100% complete

Check out this item from eBay seller Seibertron.com's Transformers and more. You can view all of this seller's items by clicking here.

Seibertron.com's Transformers and more wrote:This item is mint-on-card. It has been removed from the package. Double Punch has some minor paint chips as well as some wear to the toy and minor sticker wear, typical of this particular toy and of a toy of this age. The "arm-flailing"/attack mechanism on his back randomly makes the right arm work. The left arm no longer moves when the button is pushed. A small, barely noticeable polyband was wrapped around the inside of the upper left shoulder joint to increase friction so that the arm can be posed (it used to loosely drop down). These issues are pretty typical of loose specimens of this figure. This item is a very nice display piece as you can see from the pictures below. If you have questions, please let me know. Thanks!

Transformers G1 BLUE Cliffjumper from IGA Mexican Release RARE

Here's one you don't see everyday!

Check out this item from eBay seller de-witte-tornado. You can view all of this seller's items by clicking here.

de-witte-tornado wrote:One of the most exclusive MOSC Transformers of my collection is now for sale.
This is the famous Blue Cliffjumper released by IGA in Mexico.
Some of these Mexican releases were located here in Holland.
Why is not known. So the chance to find this one in this condition is unique.
First the bubble:
The bubble is firmly attached to card.
It is super bright.
There is a crack on the right side of the bubble as can be seen in picture 3.
Then the card:
It is super clean.
It is bright....no fading!
No big scratches or something. (I would have shown that with a pic)
It is not completely flat...there is what I call: a little "wave" in the card.

All original stuff, I do not sell or collect reissue or KO stuff,
and I never will cause its all fake in my opinion.

Here's your chance to impact which galleries you see right here on Seibertron.com in the next month or two. Thanks to my new camera that I bought at the beginning of 2012, I'm plowing through galleries at record speed (I've added almost as many galleries in the first six months of this year as I did all of last year). I'm torn on where I should turn my focus next so I thought I'd ask all of you to see which set of vintage galleries you'd like to see me work on next when I'm not working on new galleries (which always take precedent).

Without further ado, click here to vote and tell us which set of galleries YOU would like to see next. The choices you'll get to vote on are as follows:

  • BotCon 1994 Breakdown and BotCon 2004 Breakdown
  • Grand Maximus, Black Zarak, and Scorponok
  • Metroplex, Trypticon, Gigastorm, and Metrotitan
  • UK Exclusive Action Master Elites, Turbomasters, and Predators
  • Computron, Abominus, Defensor, and Liokaiser
  • Overlord, Fangry, Horri-Bull, Squeezeplay, Hosehead, Nightbeat, and Siren

These galleries are all game changers for my collection. Will you get to see me bust open a mint-on-sealed-card BotCon 1994 G2 Breakdown? Will my Black Zarak suffer from gold plastic syndrome? Will I apply the stickers to Metrotitan? Will I open up my remaining sealed UK exclusives? Will I apply the stickers to the gestalts that haven't gotten the gallery treatment? Will I apply Overlord's stickers and transform him for the very first time? The next batch of vintage galleries are up to you to decide!

The choices are pretty awesome for fans of vintage Transformers toys. Make sure you vote in this poll!

Auto Assembly 2012 Kitbash Workshop Details Released

We have had a kitbash workshop at Auto Assembly for the last few years but as we are moving the convention to a new home for 2012, we wanted to do something special this year and bring all of you a brand new, improved workshop as part of Europe's Largest Transformers Convention so we've teamed up with Calloway Customs to do something brand new which we think you'll all love...

This “Blue Peter” style presentation will last approximately one hour, and will focus on how to change a stock Hasbro toy into a different character, using all the tools and tricks of the trade available. Discussing paint removal, disassembly and cleaning, spray / paint preparation and application, wheel removal, head replacement, decal application and much more.

Presented by Nick Calloway, the designer behind the popular Calloway Customs Shapeway store, and Botcon award winner Sid Beckett. This workshop will be backed up by a full “how to...” bullet-point refresher guide on the Auto Assembly website and a video of the presentation so you can follow along at home.

“We wanted to do something similar to the custom workshops other conventions offer,” said Nick Calloway, “without the practical difficulties of sixty people fighting over two soldering irons, against the clock. In this workshop you will learn all the skills you need so you can attempt a true custom in the comfort of your own home at your own pace.”

The limited edition convention exclusive upgrade kits themselves will be available to purchase at the convention and will be available to pre-order shortly from Calloway Custom Designs exclusively for convention attendees!

For more details on Auto Assembly 2012 which is taking place over the weekend of 3rd - 5th August 2012 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel or to book your tickets or find out information about booking dealers tables, visit the website at http://www.autoassembly.org.uk

Hope to see you there!

Quick update on the status of the TFCC Club Store . As most of you already know TFCC's Club Store was brought back on-line today, and two high demand products were made available, Runamuck and the BotCon 2012 Souvenir Set Octopunch & Spinister. Apparently the demand for these two items was so high it crashed the store's server forcing the Club Store to be taken offline. They hope to have the necessary changes made and the Club Store back online in a few days.

Statement from the TFCC homepage:
Due to the high bandwidth demand for the Transformers' Club and BotCon products, we have been forced to take the store server for the Transformers Collectors' Club offline. The system our new store software was installed on will not support the bandwidth demands that are being placed on it. The store software company will be moving us to a different server with more capacity.

Thus, the Transformers Collectors' Club store will be offline for several days. We will let you know when we are operational again.

If you received a confirmation email or see a charge on your credit card, you have a good order in the system. This move will not affect any order that went through.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your enthusiasm about these products.


From the TFCC facebook page:
Our host had informed us that the store server has been taken offline as the heavy traffic kept causing it to crash. We will keep you posted as they address the issue on their end. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Due to the high bandwidth demand for the Transformers' Club and BotCon products, we have been forced to take the store server for the Transformers' and G.I. Joe Collectors' Clubs offline. The system our new store software was installed on will not support the bandwidth demands that are being placed on it. The store software company will be moving us to a different server with more capacity.

TFCC has just sent out the following message:

Hello all,

Today we will be uploading our new set of store templates and testing them. Hopefully, if we don't find any major errors, we will be turning on the left over BotCon products, Runamuck, and other club items around noon CDT tomorrow.

Please note that you will be limited to ONE Runamuck and ONE Convention Pack (below) until we see how demand goes. Do not place a second order until we allow you, as we can see all of our orders by member and will cancel the order and charge a cancellation fee.

2012 Transformers Club Exclusive Runamuck (1 pc) $32.00

2012 BotCon Souvenir Combo Pack (Octopunch & Spinister 2pk, 2012 Comic Program, Trading Card Set) 4 pcs $110.00

We want to ensure that as many people as possible are able to get these pieces first hand without having to go to the secondary market. IF WE DON"T SELL OUT, as soon as the flurry abates, we will remove the limits.

I'll send out another email and we will tweet when the product is live.

Thanks for your patience!

Brian

Site sponsor BigBadToyStore has listed a pre-order for a new Takara Transformers Arms Micron figure, AM-21 Arms Master Optimus Prime. Anonymous sources have informed us that this is Takara's version of Hasbro's Leader sized Weaponizer Optimus Prime that will come with a Arms Micron Matrix that can combine with other Arms Micron figures, though these details should be considered rumors until officially confirmed. The BBTS product description indicates this will be a limited edition and may include bonus Microns. It's priced at $119.99 and scheduled to arrive in October. Click here to visit the pre-order page.

BBTS wrote:This limited edition may include 5 extra micron arms figures. We are waiting for confirmation back from Japan on the microns - the site will be updated once we have received final info.


No image of the actual product, but here's a couple of images of Hasbro's Weaponizer Optimus Prime from BotCon:

Remember late last year when we were all wondering when that Target Exclusive two-pack featuring the screen accurate Deluxe Leadfoot was going to show up at retail? Toy Fair 2012 rolled around, and to the disappointment of many we found out the remaining unreleased DOTM figures had been cancelled. Thanks to eBay we finally get a look at the Autobot Team Racers set featuring Autobot Topspin and Leadfoot in-package complete with it's Target exclusive sticker. When this set was initially announced at BotCon 2011 we were told the figures would be Twin Twist and Leadfoot, but as you can see it ended up being Topspin.

Check out what could have been in the images mirrored below.
