Fellow member, JTKranix noted that BigBadToyStore.com is reporting that Takara will be updating the paint applications for the Classics series.

BBTS.com had this to say:
TRANSFORMERS JAPANESE CLASSICS: Takara will be releasing the Classics line domestically in Japan, if you've missed out on any of them this is a great chance to fill in your collection. We've also just learned that they plan to update the paint versions of the figures to better reflect how they looked in G1 animations. We are digging for details (especially on Megatron - who would look awesome in gray & black), but there is not anything concrete available yet. We'll update the site as we learn more.

Last night, South Park debuted its new season, and was it ever special. The boys end up going on a journey to Imaginationland and meet several imaginary characters, including Optimus Prime! Terrorists attack Imaginationland and blow up several imaginary characters and the boys escape.

What's even better, is that this is a three part episode, and it ends with a cliffhanger. Imaginaryland has two parts, the good side and the evil side. Characters that are good are on the good half, evil characters are on the evil side of the wall.

The terrorist plot is to blow the wall up and unleash the fury of the evil characters. So there is a good chance we may see some Decepticons on the other side in the coming episode.

To view the first episode, go to Comedy Central.com.

Our very own skywarp-2 has a follow up to his previous hunting around for more information on the Metallic Movie figures:

The next up will be the new and improved Voyager Metallic Prime, which is different from the Robovision version sold at Target, it is in the darker color scheme, no extra flames, but is in Metallic shinny paint..with a Shinny Metallic Thundercracker..

After that is a Metallic shinny Rescue Ratchet, and Thundercracker again..


skywarp-2 has also included some pictures for confirmation:



Many thanks to skywarp-2 for being thorough with his investigation.

Just a reminder to keep voting for the Transformers Movie in the Yahoo Hollywood Movie Awards.

While Transformers held a slight lead over "300" early on in the race, it has now fallen far far behind both "300": 30% (with 37517 votes) and even "Harry Potter 5": 26% (with 32016 votes).

Transformers is in third spot with only 20% (with 24417 votes).

So if you have not already voted, now is the time to do so!

News site Bloomberg.com have reported some good news for TakaraTomy, and all of their stockholders:

Tomy Co. rose the most in 17 months on the Tokyo stock exchange after the Japanese toymaker and distributor doubled first-half profit on sales of ``Transformers'' toys and Nintendo Co.'s game players.

Net income was 1.5 billion yen ($13 million) in the six months ended Sept. 30, as sales rose 5.5 percent to 87 billion yen, the Tokyo-based company said yesterday. The shares gained 8.3 percent to 744 yen, the biggest advance since May 2006.


Their stock rise is due in part to 6.9 Billion Yen worth of Transformers sales, more than TakaraTomy were expecting (they had anticipated 7 Billion Yen of sales through to march 2008).

One of the great perks of living in Japan is being able to get Japanese Transformers and products as soon as they are released. And if you haven't guessed already - I live in Japan; so last week I picked up the new Transformers Collection 2007, by Dengeki Hobby Books.

The book, itself, is 95 pages long and includes Transformers from Takara from 2004 - 2007. The book is divided into five sections:
Part 1 - Movie 2007
Part 2 - KISS Players
Part 3 - Technical Transformers
Part 4 - Various Transformers
Part 5 - Transformers Extras


Not much is known about this book (partly because it is written in Japanese); but don't let that stop you from picking it up. Large, clear, and colorful pictures fill the entire book and are printed on fine quality paper. The figures are laid out according to their toy number. Each character has a stats listing and description. The photos show the figures in robot mode, alt mode, close-up head shots, gimmicks, and automorph features. There is also lots of concept art, which add hours of interest even for non-Japanese readers.

MP Megatron - Concept art
Note: opening chest, the Heart of Cybertron and Spark, the Key to Vector Sigma, and the gun and dagger hilt store in the leg compartments

Kmart has posted their online Catalogue for the upcoming week of Thursday October 18th to Wednesday October 24th.

Included in this sale is a general 20% off Transformers toys, and Ultimate Bumblebee on sale for $99.95, save $45. There are, of course no rainchecks yet again, meaning if the store does not restock, then you get no figures.

You can check out the Catalogue by clicking here.

Goodluck, and I hope for a change that Kmart has some stock.
