On the board of, Metrodome has made a statement regarding some complains about their recent release of Transformers: The Movie - Reconstructed. The following is an direct quote from the site:

We have had a response back from the lab in New York and they have informed us that they did go from telecine to NTSC and then to PAL, we weren’t aware that this was part of the process. Having examined the film we concede that there are minimal artefacts, but in honesty feel that they are not significant enough to mar viewing enjoyment. Given the option we would not have undergone this process. Obviously some fans will have superior equipment and from a cinephile point of view this may not meet expectations, we can only apologise, but still believe from overwhelming feedback, that we have produced a unique version of the film that will appease and delight the majority of consumers. The newly revealed picture has shown some incomplete parts of overdrawing in the animation, but this is a compromise in order to show the maximum possible screen image throughout, which ultimately is the key differentiation between this and previous versions.

In terms of the 5.1 mix: this was newly created for this release from the original stereo mix. No extra sounds have been added, but due to the nature of a new surround mix derived from just two original channels, existing sounds will come through as louder than in previous incarnations. Hence the sound of the gun is not an addition, but merely louder than before, it was already on the soundtrack. The fact that the sounds are present on the stereo track as well indicates that our version is correct and previous versions are incorrect representations.

All products are watched through before release, but it is not always possible to have someone with knowledge of prior versions QC the product. Hence the main priority at the initial viewing is to look for digital dropout, audio glitches and authoring failures. We will do all we can to arrange for future releases to be viewed by a Transformers fan as well as a technical controller.

Hasbro has made a statement about its long-time Chairman of the Board of directors, Alan Hassenfeld. Taking effect from Januari 1st 2006, Alan Hassenfeld will step down as Active Employee.

Hassenfeld (56) will still remain active within the Board of Directors, but shall take up the function as a non-employee for the company. After 35 years of service to Hasbro, he shall now concentrate his efforts as leading guide for the company in its future endeavours.

Hassenfeld is a third generation CEO for Hasbro, a family owned company that started in 1923 as Hassenfeld Brothers, which mainly dealt in production of School accessories. In the 60's the company started to concentrate its efforts in toys, rather then school equipment. Stephen Hassenfeld directed the company into creating toy lines like GI Joe, from which eventually with aid from Takara the Transformers developed. When Stephen Hassenfeld died in the late 80's, Alan took over from his brother to give the final say in what happened with Hasbro toy-lines, including the Transformers.

One of Alan Hassenfeld's most recent involvements with the Transformers was giving the green light to Dreamworks and Angry Films to start production on the live action version of the Transformers movie.

Posted by Seibertron:

I will NOT tolerate a small group of people taking advantage of the situation with the game. Glyph and I are working to resolve the programming issues with the game. The people whose characters I banned tonight know who they are. Enduring repairers causes major problems with the server. Now I know what was going on when there were server problems during the past few weeks. This staff does NOT need to put up with this crap. I hope the example I made of these people's accounts this evening will show the rest of you that I'm being very serious about this. Please do not take advantage of the enduring repairer problem while this loophole in the game still exists. If you are caught taking advantage of this, I will ban your characters as well. I'm sorry this had to come to this but I will not let the top few people of the game with the highest scores continue to cheat any longer. Bottom line. End of story.
