For those looking for the 3rd Party Figure Forum, it has moved.

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

I posted it on the 'report a problem' forum, hopefully this is just an oversight on someone's part.

Why would you remove the most-used option in the drop-down menu? It just doesn't make any sense...

Oh, it does. Getting rid of the 3rd party altogether seems to be what the end game is all about.

If they don't want a 3rd party forum on the site, just get rid of it already! Doing stuff like this seems like it was only meant to aggravate the people who use it...

A023, you're being counterproductive here.

All of this is a matter of the ease of access. What was one click turns into two or three. In a matter of less than a minute you can make it one click again by bookmarking or url shortening.

There is no hidden message here, the forum still exists and will still exist. This isnt end of the world material.

Not the end of the world, no... but making things more inconvenient on purpose seems quite passive-aggressive... unless there's a good reason??

What's "counterproductive" is tiptoeing around the subject & not giving a straight-forward answer as to the logic for the change... at least A023 was trying to be honest.

I'm more and more seeing this as a protective measure, which I can understand. I think Hasbro are getting serious on the matter.

I'm unsure as to why you feel there should have been some big announcement. It's JUST a sub-forum of Seibertron.com. It's not a vital piece of the site, it's just a sub-forum.

Should we make an announcement if we make changes to the Video Games or Fantasy Battle forums?

It is an inconvenience, I used that option all the time but I can go on with my life without it. I just added the forum to my home page settings so it loads straight there when I start my browser. I will miss being able to jump right there between forums though.

Should Seibertron.com have quick links to every sub forum on its drop down list? Should each subforum of the creative forum have a quick link? No, of course not, it's the same here.

Actually you bring up an interesting idea. Mouse over the "Toys" menu. see the >> beside the Toys Sightings and Toy Galleries that indicate a sub forum? Why not rearrange the forums dropdown menu in a similar fashion? All sub forums could be accessible easily without showing preference to one or the other.

All this seems to be a just in case they do move. And if they do Seibertron.com will be the only game in town... until someone else starts a new site i guess.

I spotted a sly link removal recently which no one seems to have touched upon.

The direct link which got moved from the frontpage drop down menus remained in the secondary side menu when you clicked into the Non TF Toys Forums.

This has now been taken away from us 3rd party fans which means there is no quick route to all the 3rd party loveliness? :-?

What is wrong with a 3rd party button? Heck, give us back a drop down menu! :D

Either I'm such a clutch at the search function but I kind of miss some of your pictorials of 3rd party not TFs figures. Any chance you'll post your photos of not Broadside?
Buy Official Hb/TakaraTitancityformers at retail price or else the 3rd party makers win!

Btw, its been nearly a year now and TR Soundwave and Blaster aren't moving in the shelve of TRU, is that shelfwarming or what?

There is no denying that a massive love of 3rd Party figures exist and isnt about to go away anytime soon.

Everyone here using the Seibertron.com website appreciate the fact the site owner has developed a dislike to 3rd Party products.

How about an 'official' sticky thread in the Toys drop down list created by site mods where 3rd Party figures only (not the glut of 3P weapons etc) can be photographed and accessed in a similar way to the Hasbro galleries?
Pro looking galleries could even be submitted from like-minded fans for approval and officially added into the 3rd Party Gallery thread.

Just a thought...
