Attention variant hunters! NightViper of The Allspark has noticed a small change in Classics Bumblebee's sculpt. Normally the rubsign sticker overlaps the vent on his chest, but the variant has the vent enlarged so the rubsign fits as it should. It is probably safe to assume this variant will be used for the upcoming Cliffjumper repaint.

You can find his original report on The Allspark.

Views: 11,780 has just posted their review of the upcoming Transformers the movie DVD. They have an pretty in-depth revuew if the DVD, a few comparison shots between the old and remastered version and even an few images of the DVD menu.

....Overall, the Transformers: The Movie (20th Anniversary Special Edition) is absolutely worth buying since it not only offers vastly improved picture and sound but a spectacular collection of bonus materials and extras. In fact, for animation fans, social historians, or even just collectors of cultural artifacts, this is definitely one of the must-buy DVDs in 2006. And even if this is my final review for IGN DVD - should the kind and generous Mr. Carle decided that our difference of opinion is an employment deal-breaker - at least I can find solace in the fact that I took one of the year's best DVDs with me when I left....

Nordic Mini-Convention Exclusive Figure

Our own Atreyu will be hosting a mini-convention for Nordic Transformers fans. On top of that there will be an Exclusive figure offered to those who attend! Here is what Atreyu had to say:

"There will be a mini convention in our house on november 11, and everybody is welcome. Free dining and lodging, and perhaps most importantly: a free exclusive figure for anybody who attends.

A little known fact is that stunticon drag strip was actually based on the 1976 Tyrrell P34 six-wheeler formula one car. Considering drag strip's diaclone prototype heritage, this real world colour scheme is long overdue. There will be less than 15 figures produced, and as previously mentioned, it is completely free. Here's the prototype and tech spec + bio. It will come in a G1 style box. Robot mode and an extended "universe" style bio will be unveiled at the "mini-con"


"Only unity and a strong leader can maintain order"

DOWNFORCE no longer speaks with his brother MIRAGE after defecting to the Decepticons for ideological reasons. Uses extreme speed to flank enemies on the battlefield. Holo-displacer allows him to project two images of himself to deceive his opponents. Wields a rapid fire armor-piercing dart handgun when he gets in range. Is often hesitant to carry out the brutality expected from MEGATRON.


so whaddaya think?

and before you ask: YES, I hope this can be the first part of a 5-member combiner team. One combiner member per mini-con.

In case any of you want to re-sell the figure, it will include a certificate of authenticity from all the mini-con attendants. Just in case anybody tries to do a replica. Although that will be a difficult thing to do :)

The other "carrot" for this get-together is that this will be the first time a complete collection of Japanese transformers that were ever commercially available will be on display. No, Tony Preto's collection wasn't complete :P Besides, this is 95% mint in box. There will also be various presentations on aspects of transformers history - told from a nordic perspective."
