Ebay seller TFCToy has acquired one of the newest Revenge of the Fallen Deluxes in package - Lockdown. The figure is not a repaint of Animated Lockdown, but an entirely new figure. While the character is being translated into the movie-verse, he's still keeping his Bounty Hunter roots. You can check out his biography and packaging pictures below.
Lockdown was hired to hunt down and destroy Autobot Ratchet, and that's what he aims to do. Once he's accepted a contract, nothing short of total deactivation can stop him. His services don't come cheap, but he's the best there is at what he does. Lockdown has never lost a target, and he doesn't intend for this to be the first time.
If your memory can stick with you for a couple years, then you'll remember that the 2008 Tokyo Winter Wonder Festival had an exclusive Transformer repaint - G1 Arcee.
Now as 2010 rolls in, we'll be getting an exclusive repaint once again from the Winter Wonder Festival. TFormers reports that the exclusive will be of the Fallen. The figure will be available to the public on February 7 - the date of the festival. You can check out the promotional image here.
The exact paint job is unknown, however it should definitely differ from the original Fallen and Target Fallen.

Los Angeles, CA. (Reuters) - Amidst one of the worst recessions in recent history, it seems that one area of business remains untouchable: Entertainment. Even during the Great Depression of the 1930's, the entertainment industry thrived as everyday people sought an escape, if only temporary, from life's many woes. It seems that, once again, history is repeating itself, in a good way.
Reuters is reporting that 2009 is shaping to be a record year of domestic sales earnings at movie box offices across the nation, approaching the $10 billion USD mark. Of this monumental mark, Transformers Revenge of the Fallen raked in $402 million USD alone, according to tracking firm Box Office Mojo. The only other film to come close to that is the Harry Potter franchise continuation, The Half Blood Prince, at $301 million USD.
With pre production already in motion for the third film of the Transformers Live Action Movie franchise, its a wonder what records will be broken in 2011. Whatever may come, you can be certain to find the latest news and information right here on Seibertron.com, your Ultimate Transformers Resource!

The Universe of the Transformers is vast, and populated by many characters. Their universe is a large tapestry, made up of the stories and points of view of countless experiences that serve the larger whole.
These are some of those stories. This is:
It should be noted that while this project has been recognized by IDW Publishing and Hasbro, none of the works presented have been commissioned or solicited by either company. The stories are not official canon, except where noted. These stories are the result of Transformers enthusiasts taking the time out of their busy days to contribute to a universe they love. No one has been paid for the production of these stories.
GameInformer has updated their Transformers War For Cybertron Hub with one of the most popular characters in the Transformers Universe - Starscream. The seeker has been known to be treacherous, egotistical and always looking out for himself. Will Activisions' War For Cybertron continue this trend? Check out the sketches and information below!
We've already given you the lowdown on the esteemed leaders of the Autobots and Decepticons, Optimus Prime and Megatron, but for our final Transformers: War For Cybertron character profile, we wanted to take a look at a true fan favorite. Enter Megatron's ever-scheming second-in-command, Starscream. You can see his powerful jet form above and his newly-designed robot form below.
Cartoon watchers who were introduced to Starscream in the '80s were immediately drawn to his sneaky, deceitful nature. Despite being arguably the highest-ranking member of the Decepticons besides Megatron, Starscream is deadset on taking the top spot, and he makes no efforts to hide it. But the original cartoon never really attempted to explain why Starscream was on such a power trip nor why Megatron kept him around despite that. War For Cybertron's prequel story lends itself perfectly to fleshing out these motivations.
The first mission of the Decepticon campaign will chronicle the first meeting between Megatron and Starscream aboard a space station that orbits Cybertron. This dramatic encounter will culminate in one of the Decepticons defecting only to be replaced by an eager Starscream. Despite teaming up with the Decepticons, Starscream will make it clear that in his mind both Megatron and Optimus Prime are failing to keep the best interests of all of Cybertron in their minds.
As one of the handful of Transformers that can change into a jet, Starscream will also have the special Hover ability while in robot form. His other special ability, Shockwave, sounds like it will be perfect for handling large groups of enemies.

Response has been incredible! In less than 24 hours the room block is at 185% of capacity. The hotel will continue to take reservations until there is no availability left and then we will look at overflow properties outside of the Swan and Dolphin complex.
Currently there is availability at the Dolphin for every night except Wednesday the 23rd and Thursday the 24th. HOWEVER, there is plenty of space still available at the Swan for all nights. The Swan hotel is about 100 yards from the Dolphin and they share the same swimming pool complex. So, if the reservationist needs to put you in the Swan, don't worry, they are right next to each other and it will only take about 2 minutes longer to walk to the convention center.
Make your reservations today through the link at BotCon.com.
An email supposedly sent out by Gerard of Robo robo, a popular hobby store in Singapore, announces a pre-order for a ghost/clear version of MP-03 Masterpiece Starscream. According to the email received by our own Seibertron.com member freaky777, the figure is slated for late June 2010 release and will cost approximately 10,000 yen, or around 138.00 Singapore dollars (about 98.00 USD). No official images of this figure have been released yet and this figure has not been confirmed by Takara. However, with the recent release of the Henkei Ghost Starscream, it is very possible that the toy maker has this release in the works.
Stay tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest on this story and for all the latest Transformers news!
