They're the enemy of all non-Mint-in-Box toy collectors. To many of us Transformers fans, they are the last hurdle before we take our precious figures out of their plastic prisons. Some are easy, some are agitating, and some are just excruciatingly painful to deal with. (Have a go with the Titanium series lately?) No matter what vaccines we have, whether it is clippers, scissors, or swift fingers, twist-ties are like a virus that always get to us every time we buy a Transformer!

And now we come to the gist of this story, as our website's creator, Ryan, stumbled upon a revelation when working on the upcoming galleries of Battlefield Bumblebee and Infiltrator Soundwave. Instead of the usual plastic and metal combination of twist-ties, the figures were held in with twined paper ties. Now one might wonder what the big deal is with the change of material in twist-ties. Well, they are more environmentally friendly, and that's exactly what Hasbro told us at Botcon 2009

Are you guys looking into moving away from using so many twist ties?
We are looking to move away from them and moving towards smaller packaging which is more biodegradable. In the future you’ll see smaller packages with Tam, which is easier to cut and biodegradable.


Take a look at the change below, as many will be dealing with these when the Battlefield Bumblebee vs. Infiltrator Soundwave two-pack is sent out to mass retail.

So there we have it, looks like the nightmarish twist-ties are a figment of the past! Have any stories of the wrong doings you've experienced with twist-ties? Share it with us in the Energon Pub!

This month's Fan Fiction brings us a one shot story by resident Fan Fic writer hellkitty giving us a new perspective on a well known Autobot.
Azimuth by hellkitty

Azimuth

Ironhide realized, once again, he had outstripped the rest of the Autobot assault forces that were supposed to be with him. He sighed, slowing to a halt, ducking behind some cover. Again and again he had drilled into them the pace they should run, the importance of covering flanks, interval, everything that a lifetime of military service had settled hardware-deep into his cortex. And still, when it mattered, even when they were trying to retake their own former base, when they not only knew the terrain but knew there were injured waiting for rescue, they failed him. Failed the objective. Frag.

He heard a soft moan from across the corridor. A door hung off its tracks, its surface pitted with impacts that had chipped the paint, the space beyond it flickering in intermittent light. Someone was there. A trap, possibly. Luring him in. Playing on his Autobot sympathies.

Huh. Best way to fox a Decepticon trap was to go in knowing it was a trap. Benefit of having been one. Ironhide combat rolled across the hallway, pressing himself inadequately flat against the wall, risking a peek at the room to get an idea where, if it was a trap, his enemy might hide.

The room was cluttered with desks—a classroom or briefing room, that left way too many places for an enemy to hide. The moan again. It sounded genuine. Eh. He was an Autobot now, and Autobots went to the rescue.

Even if his own Autobot team had fallen behind.....
