With the recent scandals surrounding the Chinese toy companies using lead paint in their production, new testing to prevent such accidents from happening again has been introduced.

However, these new safeguards to protect us from such an error from happening again is going to come with a cost, and it is predicted that toy companies will be passing the buck onto the consumers.

Current estimates from analysts at MSNBC.com predict the costs of Chinese made toys to go up by about 10% for the consumer, starting next year. Even still, there is the possibility that it could be even more than that.

We will keep you posted going into the next year on whether or not Hasbro intends to raise the price of Transformers or not as soon as possible.

Yes, that's right, the USA and Canada are not the only countries to be getting the Transformers Movie on the big, big screen!

IMAX Melbourne will be screening the Transformers Movie from September 21st.

The Run time is set as 145 minutes, so it seems as though what was said on Bay's site runs true for the Aussie release.

There is yet no mention whether Transformers will be appearing at IMAX Sydney but the Seibertron News Team will keep you updated.

These are the sets:

Final Stand:
Includes a Longarm Tow Truck figure with what appears to be a legless Robot Replicas Bumblebee.

With the release of the KO Vintage looking Generation 1 Mirage, one had to wonder if this might happen, especially with the recent E-Hobby BT Electro Disruptor Clear Rijie (Mirage), and the recent 2007 Botcon Transparent Blue Mirage Give Away Figure.

Here we have an auction for the GHOST version of G1 Mirage, although it is a KO version, so the quality is unknown, and likely to be poorer than the quite fragile vintage G1 version.

Here's some images for you too!





It looks so cool, I have bought one for my collection to complete the 'invisible' Mirage set!!

Here's a message that I posted over on Transtopia that I thought I would share with all of you here on Seibertron.com ...

****************************************
// URGENT REQUEST
****************************************


If you have an account on Transtopia AND you have an account on Seibertron.com, it would help me out immensely if your usernames and email addresses are the same on both websites. Please update your accounts to make sure that your username and email address is the same. If you are unable to make your username the same, then your username on Seibertron.com will take precendence over your username here. You will be able to edit your information as necessary on Seibertron.com once everything has been imported. If you DO NOT have an account on Seibertron, please DO NOT register at this time on Seibertron. I will be importing all of the user accounts from Transtopia over to Seibertron.com within the next week and it will be easier just to import the accounts that do not have username or email address conflicts than to try to accommodate those instances.

Your account on Seibertron.com will take precedence and your information on Transtopia will be updated to match your information on Seibertron.com (such as your user IDs, for example). I will write a script that will look to see which account is older and use that date as the registration date so that if you recently signed up on one of the two websites, your older account's registration date will be used as your member date.

****************************************
// WHAT'S NEXT???
****************************************


Once I have sorted out all of your user accounts, I will update all of the posts and topics with your new user IDs. After that has been completed, I will import all of the user data, forums, topics and posts into the Seibertron.com Energon Pub forums. All of the existing forums will continue on Seibertron. Devastator and I will then work together to figure out which ones need to be merged with existing Seibertron.com forums (such as the General Discussion forum).

Bill (TFmaster) didn't originally want me to import all of the users and posts to Seibertron. However, after his untimely passing earlier this year, I felt that it was very important to maintain as much of Transtopia's forum content as possible so that we will always have a permanent record of Bill's contributions on the forums. That's one of the things that is important to me to honor my buddy Bill.

Once all of the forum content has been imported to Seibertron, I will write some scripts that will redirect people from tfmaster.com to the appropriate forum, topic, post or user on Seibertron. That way, we will continue to catch the people that are referred from the major search engines such as Google, Yahoo or MSN.

The next phase of this move will be to give Devastator access to some of the tools that I've been building quietly behind the scenes that will allow him to move over a lot of the existing content here on Transtopia over to Transtopia's new home at /transtopia/index.php. After Devastator has been setup so that he can start helping with the move, I will turn my attention to the next phase which is too upgrade the Seibertron.com forums from phpBB2 to phpBB3. There are a ton of new features on the new phpBB that I think all of you will really enjoy. One of the things that slowed this whole moving process down was waiting for the phpBB crew to release a stable version of phpBB3 that I can use on the site. phpBB3 will enable the Transtopia forums to continue to exist as needed on their own so that you guys don't have to scroll to the bottom of the page in the Seibertron.com forums just to get to the ones that are important to you guys. You will be able to easily and directly access the forums important to the Transtopia community at Seibertron.com. I think you guys will really be happy with this key part of the move.

****************************************
// THE NEW TRANSTOPIA
****************************************


After the Transtopia forums and existing content has been integrated into Seibertron, then comes the fun part ... building new tools that will allow all of the Transtopians to add their own galleries of the kitbashes they have breathed life into, the artwork which they worked so hard on and a new feature that is currently not part of Transtopia: fiction contributions. The new Transtopia will be structured something like this on Seibertron:

Main Transtopia Page (conglomeration of all 3 Transtopia sections)
/transtopia/index.php

Transtopia Kitbashes
/transtopia/kitbashes/index.php

Transtopia Artwork (2D Art Gallery)
/transtopia/artwork/index.php

Transtopia Fiction (Fan-Fiction Contributions)
/transtopia/fiction/index.php

****************************************
// IN CLOSING
****************************************


Whew. That's a lot of typing up there. :) And I'm not done yet. I know it's a lot to process. This is a HUGE ordeal and a lot of work. I want it to be done right. I want to preserve as much of Transtopia as possible. I want to promote all of your work as much as possible. There's a lot of great things that are about ready to come down the pipes for all of you. I ask for your patience during this crazy time and your understanding as WE collectively come across difficulties, unforeseen circumstances and other issues that may be out of our control.

Let's do this right for Bill. Let's make him proud up there in Kitbasher Heaven.

Ryan

With the update comes the news that the Transformers Movie has moved into the 21st highest grossing US Domestic Release of all time, with it's US Domestic takings now at $311,381,546.

It needs another $3.4 million to jump over "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" into the top 20.

Hopefully the IMAX release can help it edge closer to the top 20.

We received this bit of great news about the storyline from the old collector's club comics ('The Wreckers'):

"The Allspark has been blessed with the chance to bring you the entire script for the unpublished The Wreckers issue #4, the 'final' installment in the Wreckers maxi-series. The title was originally meant to be an ongoing story, but evolved to serve as an interstitial comic, linking the Wreckers and the Universe title, but that plan never came to fruition.

With the prelude to the long-awaited WRECKERS finale arriving in the fan community's mailboxes, it was suggested that the full script for the proposed 4th issue of the WRECKERS mini-series be made available for everyone to read in anticipation of the story's conclusion. Although its contents will be incorporated into the Club's final installment, this will be the only opportunity to read the full dialogue and enjoy writer Rob Gerbracht's vision in this post-Beast Machines adventure. Enjoy!

Special thanks go out to the TCC magazine for the opportunity to finish this story and Rob Gerbracht, Glen Hallit, and Jon Hartman for providing the script and story notes. Additional thanks go out to Karl Hartman and Dan Khanna for their own contributions to this anticipated story.

Also, stay tuned, because in the coming days, a special "deleted scene" will be published featuring the final fates of the Mutant team of Icebird, Poison Bite, Soundwave and Razor Claw!

We want to thank our friends at the Allspark for sharing this great news with the members in our community as well!

FYI--The script download took me a few times until it happened. Be patient!

It seems that Transformers fans and collectors are not the only ones making use of the Hasbro Transformers toyline based on the characters from this summer's blockbuster live-action Transformers Movie.

Seibertron.com member PrinceJupiter has pointed out that CNN used the deluxe figure of the Decepticon Bonecrusher to illustrate the effectiveness of the Buffalo mine-clearing vehicle during a report on the armored military machine on "Robin & Company"

The anchors make no mention of the "model" being from the Transformers toyline, but they do use it to illustrate exactly how Bonecrusher's vehicle mode functions, and how it can save lives instead of destroying vehicles and transforming into a giant bus-destroying Decepticon as seen in the Transformers Movie.
