Alternators Rumor

For those of us that´ve been buried under mountains of Alternators news over the last few weeks, sifting through it has been less than easy. Among the hottest topics of debate for these highly anticipated figures is the price. We see Japanese Pre-Orders for the figures at between 45 and 50 USD, while they´re in Target´s computers for 19.99 USD. Why the drastic difference in price? Well, part of it may be that the Takara versions of the figures will feature Die-Cast Construction (guess it´s not a "lost art" after all) while the Hasbro versions will be made entirely of plastic. If the extra weight and durability is that important to you, the Takara versions will be readily available at online retailers.

The Smooth One had the opportunity to speak with Hasbro´s lead designer, Aaron Archer as OTFCC was winding down yesterday. Mr. Archer´s comments involve some spoilers, so you´ve been warned: Energon takes place 10 years after Armada ends. That´s it. Not exactly big news, but it´s a spoiler none-the-less. Continuity fans should be happy, this gives Armada/Energon the Season 2/3 feel or the Season 3/Rebirth feel.

OTFCC is a mere 36 hours away. One of the biggest questions that´s being asked is: "Will Hasbro be selling Unicron at the convention?" After much discussion, debate, and research, the staff of SEIBERTRON.com believes that this is another in a growing list of rumors that has a very high chance of becoming reality. Fact or Fiction? We´ll know soon enough.

I´ve just recieved word that Unicron was indeed sold by Hasbro at the San Diego Comic Con. There was a catch though. One couldn´t just walk up and purchase The Chaos Bringer, oh no. You had to obtain a raffle ticket. If your number was called, you were then given the opportunity to purchase a Unicron figure for 50 dollars. A total of 10 people for the entire convention were/will be given this chance. It´s expected that Hasbro will do the same thing for Wizard World: Chicago and (more importantly) OTFCC.

No, Unicron didn´t hook up with some sailer, Unicron is now listed to be shipping to Wal-Mart stores on July 28th. This, if you´re not already aware, is the day after OTFCC concludes.

Takara's Ultra Magnus (Overload) rumors.

Today, it was revealed that Takara´s Overload will be renamed Ultra Magnus. Immediately, rumors that´d it would feature an Ultra Magnus-like color scheme (blue and red) sprang up. While Takara´s Shockwave (Tidal Wave) features a drastically different colorscheme, that has less to do with the name than what the television show counterpart looks like. I´d say this is less of a "rumor" than it is "wishfull thinking". That´s not to say that an eXdimention repaint or Ehobby exclusive isn´t possible...

With OTFCC (Official Transformers Brand Collectors Convention) quickly approaching, I thought I´d share with you great fans some of the rumors that´ve been hitting my inbox lately.

These are all rumors, they´re not confirmed

The 2004 OTFCC may be held in Chicago (or a location near Chicago) again next year. If this is true (again, IF) it would be no doubt upset fans in the Eastern US (As the West Coast will host the returning BotCon). In any event, we only have a week until this one is confirmed or debunked.

Hasbro may be selling Unicron at this year´s OTFCC. The rumored price tag is 49.99 (plus applicable sales tax). This would be your first chance to buy the Unicron figure (legally) in the US. However, if this rumor were true, one would assume that Hasbro and Glen Hallit would have been advertising this in advance. After all, that´s one REALLY BIG incentive to attend the convention.

Thanks for reading, and remember to look for the Seibertron.com crew at OTFCC next week.

Sales Tax to be Collected at OTFCC? (UPDATED!)

Rumor has it that OTFCC dealers will have to charge sales tax (somewhere around 8%) to buyers. As someone who´s attended more than a thousand collectable conventions in Illinois, I´ll be the first to say that this has NEVER come up before. Wizard World, Comic-Con, and Toy Con (3 of the biggest Collectable Conventions in the US have never engaged in this practice. This question should be answered definitively by the end of the day, so stay tuned.

This has been confirmed both by the official OTFCC FAQ and some helpful posters on the OTFCC forums. Dealers will most likely just incorporate the sales tax into their sticker prices though, so you may not even notice.
