We just received the following email from CBS Radio. The email is about special live online coverage of the Transformers Movie Premiere. Here is what the email reports:

We have some good news for Transformers fans living in Greece. There are reports of new Transformers sightings. BlackMegatron of TFW2005 has reported finding Transformers Movie toys at various locations. So to our fellow Transformers fans living in Greece, Good Luck with the hunt!
This is a friendly reminder that Activision's Transformers Movie game has been released today for the PC, XBOX 360, PS3, PS2, and Wii. So head over to your favorite retailer and pick it up. Remember the choice is yours to Protect or Destroy!
Our own Blitzwing the warrior has brought us news of new footage from the Transformers Movie. Here is what he reported:
"Same footage shown on the Ellen Degenerres Show but with more footage of Lennox on his webcam, Blackout landing, the controller saying "45000X? Thats not possible." and Blackout starting to transform"
With GM vehicles being featured in the Transformers Movie it was only a matter of time before commercials featuring the Transformers to sell cars would surface. Chevy has started a new sale and ad campaigne titled "Transform Your Ride." So far there are two commercials. One features Optimus Prime and the other features Blackout.
We came. We changed. We conquered. Or, at least I hope so.
Most of you seem very thrilled with the all new layout for Seibertron.com. This new design has been a work in progress since February. My good friend, staff member and fellow Chicagoan, Paul (aka Starscream), suggested to me that he could come up with a pretty kick ass design for the site (Paul is a professional graphic artist in the music industry). Four months later, after much discussion, instructions and plain out hard work on both of our behalves (probably around 100 hours total), we can now enjoy a slick, cool looking design just in time for ... Seibertron.com's 7 year anniversary on June 26th???
You thought I was going to say "... just in time for BotCon and the release of a little movie we've all been losing sleep over.", didn't you? When I heard last fall that BotCon was going to be moved to the week of June 24th, I was thrilled that they had planned an entire convention right around the time of Seibertron.com's 7 year anniversary, not to mention that many of us around the world would get to see the movie this week. This is the first time that I'll get to celebrate the site's anniversary with so many other Seibertronians. How very exciting indeed.
As I mentioned above, my buddy Paul had worked very hard on this design. He presented a very challenging design which challenged my programming and HTML layout and design skills immensely. I loved every frustrating moment of it. Paul accomplished exactly what I had hoped he would: break the mold, my friend, break the mold. Aside from aesthetics, Seibertron.com has more or less used the same front page design for almost 6 years. While the current design definitely has some resemblances, it is most definitely different than any of the designs I had been creating and/or "borrowing" since 2001. Paul, I owe you some beers at BotCon my friend.
I had originally sought out to write a very long winded message but I think I've pretty much said everything that needs to be said. BotCon is this week. Many of us get to see the movie this week. The new design launches on Seibertron.com. Today is the site's 7 year anniversary. If there was ever a time to celebrate being a fan of the legendary Transformers .... this is most certainly that week.
Thank you for all of your support guys. It's been an incredible past 7 years ... here's to the next 7!
Enjoy the moment my friends! This time is ours.
