Shattered Glass Drift quality control issues: response from Transformers Collectors's Club

Earlier this morning, I received an answer back from Pete at the Transformers Collectors' Club who clarified my questions about the "mix-up" with the gun/weapon accessories included with Shattered Glass Drift. Here's what he had to say:

This appears to be a running issue with the factory. Since the guns are not actually suppose to come with the Drift mold (at retail) it looks like many toys, if not all, just received whichever two guns were selected when they were packed out. I understand that it is a technicality, but all we said was he would come with two guns. While we would have thought they would have come with a left and right gun, the factory did not seem to think it was necessary, and these are how these were packed out...

So, to clarify, we are not changing how the toy was intended. The toy was intended to have two swords which can be stored in the doors and two additional guns included as additional accessories, and ones that were never meant to come with this mold.

All that said, after all the product is shipped out and all figure defects (missing arms, broken pieces on the figure) are addressed, we may be able to come back to this depending on how many issues are out there. The easiest solution may be for people to bring to BotCon and exchange there. Perhaps we designate a Drift gun swap at the info booth.

For now though, we can't take any exchanges...

We have some new details regarding Takara's Transformers Prime Arms Micron line from the latest issue of Figure King by way of Autobase Aichi.

First, the Microns will come unassembled on sprues and feature translucent pieces that will somehow tie into a game to be revealed later. We also have the names of the Microns that come with the first six figures from the line:

  • AM-01 Optimus Prime with O.P.
  • AM-02 Bumblebee with B-2
  • AM-03 Cliffjumper with C.L.
  • AM-04 Ratchet with R.A.
  • AM-05 Megatron with Golla
  • AM-06 Skywarp with Baro

Next, the figures will feature less paint than is normally associated with Takara releases, but will come with stickers to add detail. Each figure will also feature multiple newly sculpted ports for the Microns to attach (we already some of these from the official images of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee that we posted this morning).

Update: Toy-World has uploaded the scans from this issue of Figure King. We get another look at AM-01 Optimus Prime and AM-02 Bumblebee, but more importantly we get our first shots of AM-03 Cliffjumper, AM-04 Ratchet, AM-05 Megatron, and AM-06 Skywarp. We also get some ideas on how the Microns can be combined into larger weapons. Also seen new images of MP-11 Coronation Starscream, the recently revealed Vector Oracle and Firebolt campaign Microns, Transformers Prime Cyberverse, and images from the Asahikawa Winter Festival.

Update 2: Cybergundam has added a scan of MP-11 Starscream V2.0 and Vector Oracle from Dengeki Hobby.

Earlier this month, Seibertron.com was the first Transformers fansite to warn it's members to be on the look out for suspicious credit card activity after several Energon Pub and Staff members were hit with fraudulent charges shortly after placing orders for TFCC 2012 exclusives Over-Run and Shattered Glass Drift. After weeks of analysis Fun Publications, the parent company of TFCC, has determined there is a security issue with their e-commerce system. They have issued the following apology and statement/e-mail to all members:

Image


This is going out to all members:

Fun Publications wants to take this opportunity to apologize to all of our members.

After many days of analysis, Fun Publications has determined that there is a security issue with our e-commerce systems. We appreciate all of you who have sent in your details. Your help has allowed us to ferret out several different patterns of fraudulent charges that have appeared on some members' cards (any that have been used over the last year with both the club store and our event registration system).

We have several different internet/networking companies looking into the matter. Unfortunately, as of yet, we have not been able to identify any forcible entry either into our internet service provider's servers or network. This is like chasing a ghost through the wires, as unfortunately, the perpetrator did not leave a trail, foot prints or finger prints.

For those of you who have been affected, we apologize for all of your time this has wasted and any inconvenience it has caused you. We understand your frustration as this same type of fraud has happened to everyone in our office on our personal credit cards at some point in the past. Our merchant services provider wants us to remind everyone that even though this can be a huge annoyance for you, the customer, your issuing bank will not hold you responsible for any fraudulent charges that might be placed on your card(s).

We know that this issue has been a huge topic of discussion on all of the boards for the past few weeks. However, we are required to investigate to determine and confirm a security issue thoroughly before making any public statements. This is why we put out a general alert statement two weeks ago.

Until the analysis is finished (can take several weeks) we don't know if the shut down by our former (Jan 31st) e-commerce provider caused the security issue or not. We do know that it has not been limited to those who have purchased before the change to our new provider.

Please, watch your cards closely as this type of security issue appears to be on the increase across the net. No site is 100% safe. You may want to consider having any cards you have used with Fun Publications in the last year replaced.

At this time, we do not know how long our e-commerce site will be offline for both the store and registrations. We will get back to you once we have a solution for this security issue.

Thanks for your support - Brian

With Encore Sixshot, Hexatron and WST, will 2012 be the year of Sixshot? It is looking that way. Added to the Justitoys Facebook page today were two images of WST Sixshot in gun mode that give a fair sense of scale. You can see a significant amount of die cast metal and the amount of detail that is possible on such a small figure. Check out the pics below or click here to view to Justitoys Facebook page.
