Another rare G2 item is up on eBay, and this time it was not posted by the Hartman brothers. Ebay seller dfpjtp has posted an auction for the unreleased G2 Megatron ATB. Here is the product discription:

"Up for auction is the elusive Generation 2 Megatron ATB Prototype proposed for late 1995 that has been unreleased. This figure, as well as a few other figures, were repaints of existing toys being reused as new or classic characters upgraded in newer forms. In this exception, Megatron (the large ATB) was chosen along with Starscream (the small jet) as his personal sidekick for identities of this repainted set. As with other G2 prototype toys, this figure was placed in a mock up or preproduction packaging to show how they would appear before actual production would begin. These figures have never made it past this stage of production & have only been available to Hasbro/Kenner employees at that time & I believe were also auctioned off during Botcon '96 for a charity raffle. The item is MISB, but does have some creasing & corner damage on the top left side of the box. I obtained this item through a local comic shop some years ago that had dealt directly with Hasbro/Kenner & Takara employees whom had sold or traded their collections. This item has never been displayed & has been kept safe in storage since I have owned it until listing it here.

*Note: This item was released a few years later as part of the Japanese Beast Wars II line as Starscream (small jet) & B.B. (ATB). However, there are quite a few differences between both items. Listed are Megatron's differences:

NO chrome strip along front cockpit & wings Lighter gray/white plastic for limbs FLAT black paint used for both figures SEMI-transparent yellow windows Intake decals with MEG24D stamping Rear exhaust decals with G2 faction Starscream fin decals spelled CORRECTLY Box Mispressed with Autobot faction

As a bonus: On the back of the box there is a small picture depicting other figures available for sale. Shown there is photo of another prototype figure that was unreleased: the BLUE laser-cycle repaint Soundwave!"

Hasbro's Official Transformers Collector's Club has send out it latest newsletter. In the following excerpt, you can read about Ghost of Starscream statues being in stock, and an update on the shipping of the exclusive Landquake figure to countries outside of the United States.

"We have just received a very limited number of the Palisades Transformers Ghost of Starscream statue. Check the store for pricing and details.

Also I want to let our foreign members know that their Landquakes are finally on their way. We had a problem with the company that has exported these for us in the past. We have now moved on to FedX and they will be sending these to you via their World Mail service. Expect them in the next week to ten days.

Sorry for the delay and thanks for your patience.

Our own shoelessrm has reported to have received an email from Rhino. The email states that Transformers Armada part 2 is scheduled to be released in September, 2006. Here is what shoelessrm originally posted:


"I just received this email from Rhino:

"Transformers Armada part 2 is scheduled to be released in September, 2006. I don't know about the entire series, but Rhino's deal with Sunbow, the licensor of Transformers, GI Joe and Jem, has expired. Sony Entertainment has acquired them and will reissue these titles at some point.

Dr. Rhino""


Now remember at this time this is only a rumor. There has yet to be anything official announced.

We just received this interesting message from Griffin about his personal experience with seeing a possible Transformer on the actual roads. Read his message below for some of the fun details.

Subject: News & Rumors: Transformers on the 405 Freeway

While driving back from UCLA this afternoon I witnessed a large tank being hauled south on the 405 freeway. I was going the other direction, but after seeing the pictures of the tank on the internet (THIS SITE). I knew what I had seen. It was the tank from the upcoming movie being carried by a large flat-bed truck. To my surprise, not covered up at all. Totally out in the open on the 405 freeway.

Keep your eyes open, you never know what you'll find in plain sight. In this case it really was "More than meets the eye."

Lawson has sent us a message informating us that Wizard's ToyFare 109 has some cool news on the TF Movie. He has stated that pages 48 & 49 unveil the Transformers that will be in the movie. I don't have a copy of the magazine in my hand but I'm willing to bet that the figures ToyFare printed in today's issue are in fact the upcoming Transformers Classics figures that are due out later this year and are NOT the movie figures.

Can anyone shed some light on this subject for us? Thanks in advance!

Ain'tItCoolNews.com has a picture of what they're claiming will be the official truck mode for Optimus Prime in the upcoming Transformers movie from Dreamworks. It looks like the truck mode will be closer to the G2 Laser Rod Optimus Prime rather than the G1 Optimus Prime. I don't know about you ... but I'm not complaining. [sarcasm]Hasbro even let Dreamworks keep the long smokestacks ... of course this could just be a prototype version.[/sarcasm]

Check it out here before the picture gets taken down.
