The Seibertron.com 10th anniversary t-shirts are selling very well. 25% of the total stock was sold this past week which has kept me extremely busy, not to mention all of my other Seibertron.com eBay auctions that I've been doing this month (126 items sold total in past 31 days). Try doing that and keeping up with an onslaught of Transformers toy galleries.

The shirts that are currently available on eBay will only be available until Monday, June 21st. I modified the auctions so that they would require people to pay immediately upon checkout so that I can make sure your shirts get ASAP.

An assortment of shirts in all available sizes will be available in limited quantities at BotCon. If you're attending BotCon, find me ASAP in order to get your shirt. I'll be available to sell you a shirt in person at BotCon starting Tuesday night. Here are the prices for shirts at BotCon:

$20 - 12M, 18M, 2T, YL, S, M, L, XL
$21 - 2XL, 3XL
$22 - 4XL

Before anyone asks, the toddler shirts actually cost me more to have made than the adult sizes because of the limited quantities.

Once I get back from BotCon, I'll update the quantities on eBay accordingly.

If you're thinking about buying a shirt and you're size is still available on eBay, I highly recommend that you buy your shirt now to make sure you get one. If you have any questions or comments, please post them here in this thread or email me at ryan@seibertron.com.

Transformers Generation 2 in Review

With BotCon 2010 breathing new life into Transformers Generation 2, I wanted to take a moment to revisit the original G2 and lay out some background information for many people coming to BotCon this year who may not have been around during the G2 days.

Generation 2 was launched in America in 1993. I remember it well. Having been born in 1983, and gotten into Transformers shortly after the '86 animated movie came out, I had been sad to see them go. Also, I had gotten into Transformers too late to have G1 figures of Optimus Prime, the Seekers, the Autobot cars, etc.

G2 contained many G1 molds in new colors, such as

Optimus Prime (now with a black trailer)
Jazz (who sports, for the most part, his G1 colors)
Sideswipe (now black instead of red)
Inferno (with a new watergun)
Autobot Minicars (Bumblebee, Seaspray, Hubcap, and Beachcomber) with chrome paint
Grimlock (blue, and later turquoise)
Slag (green, and later red)
Snarl (red, and later green)

Image
Aerialbots (new color schemes, some more offensive than others. Air Raid and Skydive look good, but Slingshot is gold, and don't get me started on the blue and orange Silverbolt)
Image
Starscream
Ramjet (in black, purple, and a touch of teal)
Constructicons (in yellow, and later orange)
Combaticons (featuring camo paint jobs in a variety of colors)

Image


Additionally, G2 offered up many new characters and designs. With the inability to rerelease Megatron as a gun, a new figure had to be made. The green tank Megatron was an impressive figure, despite being a brick.

Image

Other G2 originals included Rapido, Skram, Windbreaker, and Turbofire. These four Autobot cars had simple but fun transformations and chromed weaponry that became the engine block in alt mode. It is interesting to note that while Rapido was mostly red with teal as a secondary color, the inverse is true of Turbofire. Also, the same is true of Skram and Windbreaker's blue and orange schemes. This habit of complimentary color schemes was common in G2 figures.

Opposing Rapido and his friends were four small Decepticon jets named Afterburner, Terradive, Windrazor, and Eage Eye.

G2 also gave us...

Color Changers (Autobots Drench and Gobots, Decepticons Deluge and Jetstorm) - Portions of the toy would change color under warm water. Each figure was armed with a small watergun.

Rotor Force - Transformers whose spring-loaded weapon fired a spinning rotor. These included Leadfoot, Manta Ray, Powerdive, and Ransack.
Image

Laser Rods - Transformers with light-up swords and engines! And BALL JOINTS. Electro, Jolt, Sizzle, and Volt may have been funky colors, but they were hot rod cars anyway.

Laser Rod Optimus Prime. Your collection is incomplete without him.

Image

Image

Image

A few smaller figures (Go Bots, Cyberjets, Laser Cycles).

Combat Hero Optimus Prime & Combat Hero Megatron with big air-powered missile launchers.

Dreadwing and Smokescreen, an impressive stealth jet and smaller plane, sporting a huge gatling gun that fired six missiles, three more missiles on each wing (with a button on top to deploy them), and two spring-loaded rifles.


European exclusive Obliterators Spark and Colossus, using molds that had been available in Europe as G1 figures named Pyro and Clench after the end of North American G1.


Generation 2 also had a comic series in the US as well as the UK. The 12-issue Marvel (US) series was written by Simon Furman and showcased several very talented artists. Derek Yaniger did great work on the covers, and many will recall Geoff Senior's work, as well as that of other artists, on the interior pages.

Image

Image


Generation 2 featured cgi animation in its toy commercials, during a time when cgi was still very uncommon. The likes of Reboot and Beast Wars were still several years away. The only TV series G2 offered was merely G1 episodes being re-aired with a new cgi title sequence, and a cgi-animated "Cybercube" replacing the flipping faction symbols for scene transitions.

Well folks, I hope this has been eye-opening for you. It's been fun for me to revisit. See you at BotCon!

For those attending TFcon in Toronto this year, you likely already know that the exclusive will be Night-bird. Made by third party Impossibletoys, the figure is a redeco and remold of Valkyrie. The TFcon website has been updated with Night-bird Box Art. This figure is also available for non-attendees! Feel free to look at Night-bird below and also remember to check out the TFcon site for attending and non-attending package info!

Looks like it’s about that time…

For the third year running, yours truly and Seibertron.com are going to be hosting the BotCon Friday night party starting at 7:30 at the Dolphin Hotel Cabana Bar and Beach Club on Friday the 25th.

You can check it out here:
http://www.swandolphinrestaurants.com/cabana/index.html

Everyone is welcome whether you’re a long time poster, a casual news junkie, or the quietest of lurkers.

Come out and meet your fellow Seibertronians.

+Level up those forum conversations with the eternal power of beer.

+Win the annual prize for “First person to punch CP in the face at this year’s Botcon!” (your experience may vary)

+There will be NO PRIZES for throwing Seibertron Staff members into the pool. However, please note that it will be awesome. (especially if they are Canadian and happened to go by “Mkall”)

+Most importantly, come out and get to know the people and friends you converse with every day yet rarely have the opportunity to interact with.

We’ve worked with the Dolphin Hotel and Cabana Bar to ensure that seating is available for this event. The bar itself holds approximately 100 or more people (so unlike last year, the hotel bar won’t qualify as a Mini-Con of Libation Dealers).

This is always a great event and though it is (now) my responsibility to ensure it happens each year, many of my best memories of Botcons past come from these unofficial events.

Please note that this is an outside establishment and should Florida weather reveal itself to be a hassle for getting everyone together, we will look to move the event indoors. Unlikely though that is, I just thought I would mention it.

Contact me personally through PM or through email at ilovecounterpunch@seibertron.com if you have any questions.

See ya in a week.
