We received the following message earlier today from PopBox Collectibles:

Hi Everyone,

We will be producing a limited edition Transformers' All Spark Cube as a
paperweight for early October 2007 release.

The cube will be around 1:4 scale at around 7-8cm in size (size like Rubik's
cube), made of die-cast metal and will be replica of that in the movie.
The edges will be more rounded for safety purposes. Will come in a
wooden box or sort of specialty packaging and possibly a small
transparent base to stand it up on its corner, to be determined.

Please see attached pictures.

The SRP will be USD60.00

*ORDER DEADLINE AUGUST 31. * We will be basing our production on
this quantity on your order and will be limited release.

Thanks.


Here is an image that they attached that they used as reference for their product.

Michael Bay: "No Transformers 2 for me!"

The battle over the new DVD formats, HD and Blu-Ray, continues after yesterday's announcement from Paramount and Dreamworks stating that their future DVD releases would only be available on HD-DVD. Michael Bay has expressed his opinion about this on ShootForTheEdit.com in a forum post titled "Paramount pisses me off!":

Posted: Tue Aug 21, 2007 2:44 am

"I want people to see my movies in the best formats possible. For them to deny people who have Blu-ray sucks! They were progressive by having two formats. No Transformers 2 for me!"

Please stop by the Energon Pub to discuss this topic by clicking here!

Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available!

--------------------------------------------------

Edits by Seibertron (Ryan):

Just to avoid further confusion, this has nothing to do with the tried and true regular old school DVD format. The movie will be released on regular DVD. Paramount and Dreamworks announced yesterday that they would not be releasing the movie on Blu-Ray DVD but will be releasing it on HD-DVD (as well as regular DVD). We are a very, very, very long ways away from movies not being released on regular DVD.

Another topic I'd like to kill before I hear it again: this doesn't mean there won't be a Transformers 2. Trust me, there will most assuredly be a Transformers 2 from Paramount and Dreamworks. Bay is just saying that he won't direct Transformers 2 if Paramount/Dreamworks won't release TF on Blu-Ray. Paramount/Dreamworks can find another director to fill Bay's shoes if he steps aside.

Please do not read more into this article than what is written here.

First Re-Issue Ultra Magnus and now this...

Yes, it appears to be true, but don't get too excited, the prices are a bit outrageous at $98.72 for each, except Starscream who is $79.88.

All are listed as IN STOCK even Megatron.

Here are the links:

Megatron

Starscream

A product description from Megatron:


Features & Specifications

Transformers Encore original style transforming robots
TRANSFORMER Megatron - G1 New PackageDesign. This 6 inches Transformer Megatron PVC figure in the alternate mode of a Walther P 38. Megatron is the Decepticon leader. This is a remake of the Original Collection piece, which are nearly impossible to find now and was one of the best selling items when the first edition came out. This revised figure features some new parts (i.e. new molds).
Shipping Weight (in pounds):

3.0
Product in Inches (L x W x H):

16.0 x 16.0 x 8.0
Assembled in Country of Origin:

USA and/or Imported
Origin of Components:

USA and/or Imported
Wal-Mart No.: 000784718"


I cannot imagine a lot of people will buy it from Walmart as you were able to get a set for less than half that amount from most online retailers.

However, many have sold out, so this option is now available.

Is this a test to see how well imported collectible toys would sell on the wholesale market? Or something else?

Let us know what you think!

As always, we'll try to keep you informed of any new toys news, in the Seibertron.com Toy News section.

Today Reuters has gone as far as to reporting on their site that Hollywood Studio's are looking at a $4 billion summer record at U.S. and Canadian box offices after this past weekend, citing that movies, including Transformers, had beaten all expectations.

Another overseas record was also broken over the weekend as The Hollywood Reporter points out in their article that an unprecedented six movies grossed over $10 million dollars at the box office at the same time in a single weekend!
"The Simpsons Movie" - $22.3 million, "The Borne Ultimatum" - $22 million, "Ratatouille," - $16.4 million; "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," - $15.6 million; "Transformers," - $10.7 million; and "Rush Hour 3," - $10.6 million.
