A while back, Seibertron.com reported on a new concept robot that British developers were creating based off of designs done by Transformers artists Andrew Wildman and Don Figueroa.

The UK was first to see these RC controlled robots to hit store shelves and now the US can look forward to seeing them as well.

{L_IMAGE}{L_IMAGE}

Features

* The MechRC Robot comes pre-assembled.
* Designed by the Transformer artist so there is startling likeness to the Transformer form.
* The 'bot sports 17 servos with 180 degree movement..
* Metal Gear Servos with 13kg-cm torque!
* Audio can be played through the speaker in the robot's chest.
* More than 100 moves are pre-stored on the robot - see him throw some serious shapes fit for the dance floor or reveal his killer fighting moves.
* An easy to use 3D visual interface is used for programming.
* The robot is manipulated in an animation film strip making customizing seriously user-friendly.
* IR remote control.
* Lithium battery pack and charger.
* MechRC Commander software CD ROM.
* USB/Serial communications cable.
* User Guide.
* Requires a PC (not Mac compatible).
* Suitable for ages 14 years+.
* Size: 36 x 32 x 15cm.


Trossen Robotics is now shipping these new creations and have posted a fully detailed information page with videos displaying all the cool tricks these bad boys can do. You can see that page here.

Unfortunately, this may be out of reach for the average consumer, sporting a pricey tag $599.99 USD.

NFR's Top Toys for 2008 Holiday Season

The National Retail Federation recently conducted a survey amongst holiday shoppers and got the scoop on what consumers say are the hottest toys to grab this Holiday season.

The TRANSFORMERS brand ranked 5th in the top 10 toys for boys catagory, just behind Video Games and the Ninentdo Wii console but beating out Star Wars and XBOX 360.

2008 Top Toys for Boys

1. Video Games
2. Nintendo Wii
3. LEGO
4. Cars (generic)
5. Transformers
6. Elmo
7. Star Wars
8. Hot Wheels
9. Remote Controlled Vehicles
10. Xbox 360


Another interesting report the survey had was that 77 percent of shoppers who participated had less than 10 percent of the their holiday shopping done. In a statement made by NFR President and CEO Tracy Mullen, she cited that “Americans may be hesitant to purchase expensive gifts this holiday season, but personal and practical gifts will resonate most with shoppers this year.” She also said that “Though many companies have already been featuring substantial sales and discounts, retailers may still have a few tricks up their sleeves to attract and entice holiday shoppers.”

Whoa nelly! With Walmart already featuring Transformers Deluxe class figures at $7.77 USD, and TARGET Stores following suit at $7.79 USD for the same class figures, the thought of getting better deals on Transformers figures may just bump Video Games out of that number one spot.

Seibertron.com member Mr.Bond007 has just informed us that the TARGET store he works at has cut price points on Transformers deluxe figures to $7.79 USD. This price cut includes Transformers Animated, Universe 2.0 and Movie figures.

This could be in response to an overwhelming control of deluxe sales by Walmart, who's maintained a price point of $ 7.77 USD on the same class of figures for well over a month.

Still and all, this is great news for holiday shoppers on a budget. Don't forget, while you're out racking in all the latest figures, to think of those less fortunate and support Toys For Tots.

Are you interested in learning how to do repaints but you don't know where to begin? Omega666 gives us a demonstration on how to repaint Universe Galvatron into something more formidable. Check out his guide.

Universe Galvatron Repaint
{L_IMAGE}


I have been doing repaints for over a year now. I started by following Jin Saotome's tutorial. I then found a You Tube clip of Chih doing custom repaints. My style is now a combination of the 2.


{L_IMAGE}


I prepped the figure by cleaning it with soap and water. Once dried, I took the figure apart at the joints like the left arm, the legs and the back kibble. I unscrewed the head and right arm/turret and taped up the canon. Once I had all the pieces, I used Krylon flat black and sprayed them. After all the pieces have dried, I used Testors Silver Argent and drybrushed them. I like the weathered look so I try to keep some of the black base coat when I apply the silver. Then, I assemble the pieces together. Galvatron looked pretty cool all silver.

{L_IMAGE}


I drybrushed gunship grey to the tank mode. In robot mode, I again drybrushed 2 shades of purple to the left arm, torso, crotch, head, feet, right forearm and canon. The first shade gave him a more metallic look and the second shade just made it look better with the grey. I added some red to the torso, knees, and eyes. The parts that were left silver were the face legs and tank treads. Some of the orange joints and pieces were left alone because they probably would have flaked. Overall, I am very happy with how he turned out.
