Not long after posting an auction for the scout-repaint Crosshairs, japanese auction site Taobao.com has posted another auction for an upcoming Transformers figure, this time for Storm Surge, the Shortround repaint and Target-exclusive figure in the Transformers Movie toyline. Like the Crosshairs auction, the listing only features only in-package images. For images of all the wave 4 scout repaints, view the original story by clicking here.

TRANSFORMERS® Movie Scout: STORM SURGE™
STORM SURGE is so named because of his all-encompassing approach to combat. Allies and opponents alike rarely leave a fight in which he is involved without being soaked in corrosive salt acid, or bathed in jellied gasoline. During fights at sea, the water around him erupts constantly into geysers as his depth charges roll indiscriminately into the ocean. On land, he sprays the area around him with emitters housed on his arms, figuring that the more destructive power he puts out, the more likely it is he’ll take out his AUTOBOT® enemies.





US House of Rep's Passes New Bill for Toy Safety Regulation

On Wednesday, the United States House of Representatives voted 407-0 in favor of a new bill regarding toy safety. The bill was created due to the lead fiasco, compliments of Mattel and other toy makers. Here's some of the highlights of the story posted at Yahoo.com.

"The House's bill would require a gradual reduction of lead content in children's products, with the limit going down to 100 parts per million effective four years after enactment."

Stricter regulations may cause toys in general to go up in price as it will be the corporations and factories that will have to monitor the products more closely.

"It would also require manufacturers to include tracking labels on products to speed recalls of toys for children aged 12 and younger, while mandating independent safety testing of toys by labs accredited by the CPSC."

Again, more costs. Transformers are marketed to the 5-12 age range. Also, the tracking labels on products does not state whether the labels will be just on the packaging of the products. Since most people do not keep their boxes, could we see additional markings showing up on the toys themselves?

"The bill would steadily increase the CPSC's budget to $100 million by fiscal 2011. Plus, it would raise penalties for failing to cooperate with the CPSC to $10 million from the current $1.25 million, while giving the beleaguered agency $20 million to modernize its toy-testing laboratory."

Currently, the Senate is also looking into the bill as well. We'll keep you posted regarding this bill as it moves from the Senate to the White House.

Seibertron's own lodelco has found some great news regarding IDW's Transformers comics over at Comics Continuum.
Comics Continuum have posted the upcoming March 2008 releases from IDW Publishing and there are a few surprises in store!

First up is Spotlight Grimlock:

Written by Simon Furman, art and cover by Marcelo Matere.

The spotlight now falls on Grimlock, everyone's favorite Dinobot! Once set on a course of action, Grimlock always sees it to the bitter end. But has he now gone too far? Branded a renegade and responsible for condemning his fellow Dinobots to a living death, this time there may be no way back!

Followed by an un-announced surprise, a second Spotlight in March featuring... Mirage?

Written by George Strayton, art and cover by Guido Guidi.

Stepping into the spotlight is the infiltrator Mirage, an Autobot who has long questioned his allegiances in the war against Megatron. But when a temporal accident suddenly shunts him into an alternate timeline, he finally gets the chance to experience life as a Decepticon. Will he embrace his newfound power and wipe out the last of the Autobots, or sacrifice everything to save them?

And another new surprise with the announcement of The Transformers: Focus on Decepticons.



Written by Shane McCarthy and Neil Kleid, art by Nick Roche and more, cover by Don Figueroa.

Starscream. Thundercracker. Skywarp. Shockwave. And, of course, their terrifying leaderŠ the Decepticons represent the greatest threat in the history of Earth -- and now they're about to make their move. What are their plans? What will it mean for fate of mankind? And where are the Autobots, sworn defenders against Megatron's menace? IDW Publishing is set to unveil a globe-shattering Transformers event that will explode across comics pages this spring, and this specially-priced sneak peek features preview art, behind-the-scenes interviews, design sketches, information on the Decepticons of the upcoming Movie Sequel series and more!

With a reprint of Transformers UK Space Pirates #1 to round out the month, March is going to be a big one for IDW Transformers fans!
