Welcome fellow Seibertronians to the newly relaunched PhotoContest!

This month's theme:


Transformers Traffic School


We cannot expect a being of mechanical alien origin to understand our ways...or our laws for that matter. Which leads us to wonder...if all the Autobots and Decepticons disguised themselves as Earth based vehicles...what pademonium resulted when they broke the laws that apply to said vehicles? That's where you come in!

This month's challenge is to depict our favorite Bots and Cons getting into trouble with the law! Parking tickets, running red lights, impounding, and the like!

Show us what we didn't see in the shows or comics! What happens when a master of disguise doesn't do their research?


There will be 10 place holders with the first three recieving a custom made sig by our own Sunstar with their winning entry!


Also there will be an honorable mention.



Photo contest rules:

1. One entry per person please.
2. Once an entry is submitted it may not be changed so please think clearly and concisely about the photo you submit.
3. No more then 10 Transformers toys allowed in one given photo. (Unless stated otherwise). Kickbashes and custom Transformer toys are acceptable as long as they are Transformers and not some repainted Gundum.
4. Only Transformer toys are allowed in the photo unless stated otherwise. Hand made props and scenery are allowed, but other manufacture figures/dolls/statues are not.
5. NO PHOTOSHOPED ENTRIES!!!!! No alteration of the photo is permitted beyond resizing/cropping to meet size requirements. (Unless stated otherwise)
6. All images must meet the size requirements or they will not be considered valid entries. (800 pixels wide by 800 pixels with a file size of no more then 200kb)
7. When you submit your entry Please remove you signature from your post.
8. All entries will be subjected to the same standards by an impartial group of three judges.
9. Entries will be judged on
- Accuracy: How well you captured the theme of the contest.
- Originality: How unique and far thinking your entry is.
- Skill/Difficulty: The apparent effort in your photo.
- Overall appearance: Lighting, positioning, poses…etc. How well you entry translates.
10. If you have any questions about the rules please PM me and I will do my best to clarify any and all inquiries.
11. REMEMBER TO HAVE FUN!

"So according to the estimates for this weekend Transformers only had a 48% dropoff in its second weekend. Harry Potter has dropped 52% from its opening.

Also Potter is up to 207 million after 13 days(once Sunday is over) while Transformers was at 224 million after its 13th day.

Transformers is up to almost 400 million internationally. They've made their money back twice over!"

And some numbers from AbsumZero:

"According to BoxOfficeMojo-

Transformers: In Release: 20 days / 2.9 weeks

TOTAL LIFETIME GROSSES
Domestic: $262,978,000 58.0%
+ Foreign: $190,634,650 42.0%
-------------------------------------------------------------
= Worldwide: $453,612,650


Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix:
In Release: 12 days / 1.7 weeks

Domestic: $207,866,865 37.2%
+ Foreign: $351,300,000 62.8%
-------------------------------------------------------------
= Worldwide: $559,166,865
"

So what does this mean overall? It looks like Transformers is still going quite strong. With the toys moving off the shelves, and the movie holding its own in theaters after 3 weeks, it's hard for anyone to not call this movie a success!

6-Inch Titaniums To Make A Return To Target?

"Just an FYI to all board members, Target is doing their fall reset for Toys THE WEEK OF AUGUST 5TH. Ultimate Bumblebee will be featured on an endcap beginning that week as well.

So I was browsing at the new planogram for boys action and saw something interesting. An item on the planogram has a DPCI of 087-06-0413 and the description in the line listing was "Transformers G1". This is the old DPCI for the 6-inch titaniums and the product image picture (a mock up to show what the aisle will look like) shows a picture of a 6-inch titanium box!

Could Titaniums make a brief comeback to Target shelves in early August? I will report back tomorrow morning after I do some more investigating at work tonight."


Anyone hoping it is true like me? We still have at least two new molds to get on the market, and many people have not seen molds all the way back to 'The Fallen'.

So this is certainly welcome news, if it is true.

Botcon in all its celebrated overall coolness, did bring us some bad news...the DINOBOT molds are lost!

So how does one satisfy the desire to own the molds without paying the ever increasing prices for these fantastic and quite popular toys?

Glad you asked because the answer is...buy the Justitoys Smallest versions. Previous Seibretron Toy News highlighted the release of Desert Warrior (Snarl), Commander (Grimlock), and Flamethrower (Slag), and their re-colored versions.

Now Justitoys is finishing up the famous five-some by releasing Jungle Warrior (Sludge), and Mystery Figure Set (Swoop and all missile launchers).

Sludge is coming along very well, as you can see here on the Jungle Warrior Pre-Order Webpage.

Due out in the Fall, these should become a whole lot more popular with the bad news about the full-sized official versions of the molds.

Also of interest:

-More pics of the MP-05 Megatron Stock and Barrel Accessories that are set to be available in August.

-Spike and Sparkplug Diaclone driver-sized figures...see them here.

-And finally, light up Energon Cubes.

Pre-orders are still available for all items.

Neko and Calenatarion are bringing back the photocontest, but they are going to need a bit of your help.

It's coming back my fellow Seibertronians!

The PhotoContest!

And we've added a new twist. Each contest will follow the same basic concepts of the old contest. However, instead of three of the staff members soley deciding the winners one of you will be chosen every months to be a guest judge along with me and one other staff member, Calenatarion.

So here's your chance to be apart of it!

If you want to be a guest judge for the upcoming and future contests post you name here!

The way in which a name will be chosen will be completly random. Once you have been a guest judge though, you will not be considered to be on for a future contest and will be taken from this list.

If you have any questions please feel free to PM me and I will do my best to answer them.

Thanks and remember to have fun!
