Thanks to my good friend and Seiberton.com member Zeds for pointing out to all the "Hardcore" Transformers Collectors out there that a new announcement has brought to the light of day that may either anger or delight collectors.

This news is in regards to what now qualifies for AFA grading. Here is what Zeds has to report:

AFA would like to announce our new 'AFA Qualified' grading scale for which we are now accepting submissions. Items including, but not limited to, opened box vehicles, playsets, and Transformers as well as certain hand-made pre-production items will now be eligible for grading under the new 'AFA Qualified' grading scale. Each 'AFA Qualified' item will be cased with a blue (rather than red) label and will be accompanied by a document with detailed information about the item and contents. In order to be eligible for 'AFA Qualified' grading, a boxed toy must contain new, complete, and unused contents and must not have a sealed blister which has been opened. (For example, a Transformers Megatron with cut tape would be eligible, but a Transformers Grimlock with an opened blister would not be. A Star Wars Landspeeder with cut tape would be eligible, but a Star Wars Sy Snootles Band with an opened blister would not be.) More details about this scale will be available on our website later this month, but feel free to contact us in the meantime with any questions. For a limited time, the AFA Qualified scale will be priced identically to our Sealed scale. Please reference our custom-size tier pricing to calculate grading fees.

This is in my opinion a reaction to the grading by the CSG grading company that have graded similar figures with cut tape from the start.


So what do you think? Own any AFA graded figures? Did you bend over backwards to find a figure that wasn't cut open?

Let the opinions fly in the thread already in progress by clicking discuss above!

This month's Member Spotlight takes us across the big pond to the UK. Seibertron ponderer, Sledge, gives us the British perspective on collecting Transformers. Sledge reveals all - from the woes to the heydays; to the juicy scandals that tinge Transformers collectors in the UK. Sledge also gives us tips on Fan Fiction writing and then uses his sorcery to make predictions about the upcoming Transformers movie.

Stormrider: Top to the morning to you governor. So Sledge, what has it been like collecting Transformers in the U.K.?

Sledge: I think the expression is something like “it’s often been a headache, but it’s never been a bore.” ....

Don't miss out. Read the rest of the interview here.

Sony, PSP Ports, And Transformers

MTV.com- In an article written on the MTV Multiplayer blog, the Playstation Portable game philosophy is lightly debated and the success of the TRANSFORMERS game franchise is mentioned.

-Round 1-
Port of console games for handhelds Vs. Big franchises with new unique experiences

To read the short blog you can click here. Some highlights are shared below.

'When I recently spoke with John Koller, head of hardware marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment America, he specifically cited “Transformers” and “Iron Man” as proof that a new PSP development model, one anchored on franchises, was working.

But there’s a problem…

Those games are only half of the “winning” equation he’s talking about. “Transformers” and “Iron Man” are ports of console games. “Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core,” however, is something wholly unique but rooted in a giant franchise. So, can franchise alone carry a game? If it’s big enough, Sony argues.

The NPD Group told MTV Multiplayer that the PSP version of “Transformers” sold 442,000 copies, while “Iron Man” pushed 242,000 copies. In Sony’s eyes, those are both extremely successful PSP games…even if they use a “failed model.”'


'Koller has told me several times to expect big franchise games to be announced 2009. Those should start being announced soon. But will the inevitable “Transformers 2? and “Iron Man 2? follow the same formula?'


So it would appear the questions we TRANSFORMERS fans should be asking SONY are:

-Should we expect unique games based on the very big TRANSFORMERS franchise for the PSP (perhaps similar to the Transformers Animated game for the Nintendo DS)?
-Or can we only expect ports of existing console games for the TRANSFORMERS franchise, like the movie game?

What say you Sony? Which will it be? I am sure you can imagine which one the game playing TRANSFORMERS fan would like.

Thanks to Seibertron members Richter and Darth Bombshell, who have alerted us to the fact that IDW Publishing's Chris Ryall posted the releases for December 10th, and not December 4th on his blog RyallTime, meaning our previous report had incorrect information. Chris has now updated his blog with the correct releases.

This week's releases will actually be:
- Transformers Animated: The Arrival #5
- Best of the UK Time Wars #5

Both issues wrap up their respective series.

And next week, the 10th of December will see the release of:
- Maximum Dinobots #1
- More than Meets the Eye #2 Trade Paperback.
