New TRANSFORMERS Collectors Club Announcement

To all Transformers Fans:

Hasbro's goal for its TRANSFORMERS Club and Convention has always been to create a fun and exciting experience for TRANSFORMERS fans. We realize that the convention specifically is a great opportunity for the TRANSFORMERS community to come together.  And we are pleased to announce the formation of a new TRANSFORMERS Collectors Club, which will be run by Fun Publications.
Led by Brian Savage, Fun Publications has a long history with Hasbro, successfully managing the G.I. JOE Collectors Club and Convention for the past ten years.  His track record and dependability made him an excellent choice to take over TRANSFORMERS. We are very excited about Brian’s expertise and the new direction for the club and convention. Brian has a personal passion for collecting that has already been expanded to include TRANSFORMERS toys and products. 

We are also thrilled that Jon Hartman, Rik Alvarez, Pete Sinclair, Karl Hartman and Ben Yee have volunteered to take an active role in the new Club, to serve as an "advisory board" to Brian and the rest of the Fun Publications team. These gentlemen obviously bring a wealth of TRANSFORMERS brand knowledge and experience to the table and will be working behind the scenes in a variety of ways.

We invite you to check out for more details in the coming weeks.

As many fans know, Hasbro has been working to resolve several outstanding issues between collectors and 3H Productions, the former entity running the TRANSFORMERS fan club and convention.  At its own expense, Hasbro has been able to complete and ship the Sentinel Maximus 2004 convention exclusive toy and the 2003 convention collector plates to customers that had paid for such items according to 3H Production's records.  

We have also been addressing the outstanding issues of the unpublished fan club magazines, the Skywarp club exclusive figure and Wreckers #4.  Unfortunately, these items were never produced or paid for by 3H Productions, and accordingly, Hasbro has not been able to fulfill these 3H Productions obligations.

However, since the fan community is so important to us and because we want get off to a great start with the new TRANSFORMERS Collectors Club, any OTFCC member that can provide us with a cancelled check or original credit card statement proving their paid membership in the TRANSFORMERS fan club for 2004, will have their membership rolled over to the new TRANSFORMERS Collectors Club for calendar year 2005.  Proof of payment can be sent to TRANSFORMERS Club, Mail Stop B-850, 1027 Newport Avenue, Pawtucket, RI 02862 by April 15, 2005.

Similarly, for fans that ordered and paid for Wreckers #4 and can supply us with a cancelled check or original credit card receipt we will provide a discount in the amount paid towards membership to the new TRANSFORMERS Collectors Club.  Proof of payment can be sent to TRANSFORMERS Club, Mail Stop B-850, 1027 Newport Avenue, Pawtucket, RI 02862 by April 15, 2005.

We expect that TRANSFORMERS fans will be as pleased as we are to be working with Brian and his team at Fun Publications.  We are thrilled to be able to continue with the convention and collectors club.  Stay tuned to for the club’s upcoming launch.

On behalf of the entire TRANSFORMERS team, thank you for your support. We think you will like the direction we are headed and hope to have you as part of our community in 2005 and beyond.
