    Ebay seller spx_toys has put up another auction for a Movie figure test shot, and this time it is the handheld gamebot. Unlike the earlier prototype images seen here, this one is a full color testshot. Judging by his highlight colors of green, black and purple we are assuming he is a Decepticon. If you notice on his chest there is a image of Cybertron Jetfire swooping in, before him is a scope. This image could be seen as a game to try and shoot down Autobots, there is also a Deceptcion symbol at the right hand bottom corner of his screen.

    Check out the auction here!

    Shelf Warmers on the Other Side of the Ocean

    We have added another article to our article section. The latest endeavor comes from our very own Professor Smooth, who has been spending a lot of time in Japan. He has written an article about Japanese Transformers Shelf Warmers. So without any more delays here is Professor Smooth's article:


    Shelf Warmers on the Other Side of the Ocean

    Throughout the long history of The Transformers, there has been two constants from the very beginning. Optimus may have given way to Rodimus; Powermasters may have been replaced by Actionmasters; and Beast Wars may be been replaced once again by Robots in Disguise, but no matter the premise, the gimmick, or the homage, there have always been shelf warmers. You see them all the time. Nobody wants Cybertron Defense Scattorshot. Nobody wants the Beast Wars Rhinox reissue. You can probably still find a Beastformer if you hunt around at a couple of K-Mart stores. If you're anything like me, you often pondered an alternate reality where GOOD figures, figures that someone might actually want, lined the shelves. Why should you be doomed to spend an enternity looking at unwanted mini-cons when Japan is getting figures that collectors gladly shell out for? Well, I'm here to tell you that Japan is no different. Just as there are Toys R Us stores in Japan, there are shelf warmers here too.

    Yes, Seibertron.com readers, Japan has shelf warmers too. Not only shelf warmers, but peg warmers and overstock warmers as well! So what figures that you've thought about importing clog the shelves in the land of the rising sun? I've been to several Toys R Us stores and brought back a detailed report on just what the Japanese won't spend their hard earned yen on.

    You may remember that Takara released Beast Machines a few years back as “Beast Wars Returns” and most of the TF shelf-space is taken up by those figures. Toys R Us Japan had the exclusive rights to sell these figures. As turns out, that means they had the exclusive rights to STOCK them because, let me tell you, they did not sell. Ultra Jetstorm and Nightscream are in WIDE supply. Rattrap and Cheetor are out in force. You'll find the occassional Optimus Primal (Blast Punch) or Megatron (Dragon) with Tank Drone, Strika, and Obsidian making occassional appearances.

    Robot Masters was a popular import line when it debuted. Online retailers blew through their early stock. So too did Toys R Us Japan. However, Gigant Bomb and the Thundercracker/Skywarp 2-pack STILL hog a ton of shelf-space. Each of these figures would only set a collector back 1,000 yen (about 8.50 USD), but those collectors just aren't buying.

    Galaxy Force sold out completely. There is only ONE item from the entire line that can still be found. The Blurr/Buzzsaw two-pack has that honor. Like the Robot Masters figures, they only run 1,000 yen for, but every Toys R Us has a TON of them.

    Takara has had great success with their line of reissues. Re-releasing characters that fans and collectors want has had people on both sides of the Pacific snatching them up. This proved that when a hard-to-find and high-demand toy is offered again, sales are fantastic! Takara seemingly set out to prove the opposite was also true when they reissued G2 Convoy. This reissue of Laser Optimus Prime usually has an entire shelf to itself. At 4,999 yen, it's not hard to see why. Nice figure, but with MP-04 around, it's almost redudant.

    There is a Binaltech figure that has clogged the shelves of every Toys R Us retailer I've been to. This will either come has a shock or a complete no brainer, depending on how you feel about the figure. It is the Japanese exclusive Binaltech Yellow Tracks figure. Takara, in al their infinite wisdom, released Tracks as a yellow 'Vette. The figure was, in short order, re-released with the correct blue color scheme and the character's signature flame-decal on its hood. Yellow Tracks, still available more than 2 years after its release at the bargain price of only 3,000 yen (26.50 USD).

    The most surprising shelf-warmer, in my opinion, makes sense on further inspection. Not a single one has sold since I've been in Japan. I've checked. The award for most expensive shelf-warmer is: Masterpiece Starscream. TakaraTomy released the best Starscream figure to date. Easily surpasing the G1 and Robot Masters version of the character and arguably outdoing even Hasbro's Classics Starscream. Then, for reasons outlined by the creator in the included booklet, gave it a paint scheme that looks absolutely nothing like the character. No doubt TakaraTomy thought that the awesomeness of the mold would be enough to sell the figure. No doubt TakaraTomy thought wrong. Masterpiece Starscream is a shelf-warmer the likes of which have not been seen since Supreme Cheetor. At 7,999 yen, it doesn't look to be flying off the shelves any time soon. Fortunately, the second constant of Transformers has always been “repaints.”

    Many people have been having a hard time finding the very popular Transformers Classics Jetfire figure. Well, that is about to change. According to Steevy Maximus of TFW2005 Jetfire should start being a lot easier to find. The latest Classics cases have the following break down:

    2x Optimus Prime
    2x Jetfire

    Megatron has been removed from the cases and a second Jetfire has been added. So, if you have been putting off getting Megatron you may want to pick him up. Also everyone should start seeing Jetfire on shelves.

    Yesterday we reported about the Optimus Prime and Starscream figures that we're assuming for the time being are the Fast Action Battlers that we first reported about last week (Search for Fast Action Battlers). Late last night, 2 new figures popped up on eBay that we are again assuming are part of the upcoming Fast Action Battlers line. The new figures are Autobots Ironhide (GMC crew cab pickup) and Jazz (Pontiac Solstice). Click here to view the Ironhide auction and click here to view the Jazz auction.

    Fellow Seibertronian GetterDragun has discovered on Ebay some more Movie Toys for sale. This time the seller is eptoys71 and they have for sale Fast Action battler Optimus Prime and Fast Action Battler Starscream. We have known about the fast Action Battlers for some time now, and though the Ebay auction doesnt saywhat they actually are we are assuming that both Starscream and Optimus Prime are the Fast Action Battlers.
