11/29 Just a few
updates in the 1986 & 1987 TF pages w/ several new boxes added.
11/27 I've been catchin
up on some old e-mails & have made several page updates.
* I've received MANY letters about it and I've finally had a chance to make
the update. In the Alterations Section,
I've added a section about 'how to alter your
own Transmetal 2 Megatron. Here, you can learn how to give your's a posable
dragon neck/arm that holds its position!
* Also in the Alterations Section, I've added
several new pictures from fan made alterations: A super cool Maximal Base from Season 3!
a SD Musha(samuri style)
Galvatron, and Kewlguy's Altered TM2 Megatron's more opened dragon wings.
* In the Japan Section I've added an old pic
e-mailed to us months ago for BW Ravage.
* I've added a few more sites to our ever growing links
section: Overide's BW/M page,
Steve's BW page, Beast Machines Central,
& The Decepticon Rejects!
11/15 Check it!
See pics taken from an e-bay auction of the first BMach toys in new packaging! Vehicon: Mirage / Maximal: Buzzsaw in our newly updated Beast Machines Page! See HUGE copies of their tech
specs on the SPQQY
11/15 In case you
didn't notice, we've unveiled a slightly new look for our main page! You'll notice MANY NEW pages added to
the mix. In the left column, the same pages we've always had. On the right, pages
dedicated to the different years of the Original TFs. 1984 & '85 are basically
the same as they've always been. The 1986, 1987. 1988, & 1990 pages are ALL NEW! Of course,
they'll all be getting major updates over the weeks, months and probably years, but I
thought you'd like to see what we've put together so far. Most notably, you'll find
links to large high rez pics of most of the comic covers in the '86, '87, & '88 pages and a bonus European Action Master
Section at the bottom of the '90 page.
11/15 Walmart hosted a TF
promotion on Saturday and it was, um interesting. They had a small table set-up with
a Walmart employee showing a video about TF's. I told the employee I collected TF's
since I was a little kid. He nervously proceeded to tell me that now TF's turned
into animals instead of cars and planes. Then told me that the "Beast Wars toys
were the bad guys" who fought against the "good guy: Animorphs." I
just grinned and played along as he tried to show me how to Transform Nightglider!
:) Oh my! If you could have seen him show me the "right way."
LOL! :) I wish I could have it on video! All things considered, I'm
glad to see Walmart trying to promote TF's! I hope they sell-out soon, so we can get
those Beast Machines toys on the pegs and shelves!
I started our "How many TF's are there?" poll today and my
mailbox is full!
been working on many fun new updates but none of the major ones are ready for general
release. But I'd like to give you a little hint of what's coming. For this
teaser, click HERE. I've also made a
slight update in the BW99 page by adding a pic of
the FoxKids Waspinator in box. Have a great weekend. -L.B.'s
Crossing the Rubicon, the BW Season 3 episode where Black- arachnia first became a Maximal
Transmetal 2 aired on February 22, 1999. And here it is over 8 months
later, and I've FINALLY found the toy! 8 months since she debuted in
the shows, 7 months after Hasbro (first) said the toy would be in stores,
and a month and a half after all Transmetal 2's were made obsolete with the premiere of
Beast Machines! The BW99 page has it's last
'MAJOR' update! Check out the new TM 2 Blackarachnia page!
Have patience, there are a lot of BIG pics which will take awhile to download but should
be worth your wait. I still haven't to see it in a MN store. I this found one
(yep just 1) at a lone Walmart in Iowa. This Walmart only just opened & none of
the other Walmarts had it either! Good hunting!
10/30 The review page has been updated with out thoughts on
10/15 The Transformers Year 2 page has been updated. You'll
find pages for all the year 2 "Mini-bots:" Beechcomber, Cosmos, Powerglide,
Seaspray, and Warpath.
10/15 We've heard from
folks from all around the country sayin' that TM2 Black- arachnia is in stores (mostly
Walmarts) but we sure haven't seen her yet. Grrrrrrrrr! :( Thanks to all for
the reports. Also, for those interested, Animorphs TF's Ultra & Super toys have
been spotted just about everywhere including Minnesota. <<Want a review of them?
Okay here goes: They're UGLY! How's that for a review! :) >>

asked by several fans to inform the world that the greatest movie of all time, TRANSFORMERS: the Movie is now for sale at many

10/15 Our 'stuff for sale page' has been updated. Nothing new in
the way of 'products' but we've sold out of many items and thought you should know.
I've also added a 'letter of reference.' for those skepticle of ordering from us.

10/4 In case you
haven't seen it, be sure to check out Mainframe's newly updated Beast Machines
Page. It's AWESOME! There you can see and learn about the next member to
join the Maximal team, Nightscream. It also has all the show titles for BMach Season
heard it here first! New Beast Machines toy info can be found on our
completely revamped Beast Machines Page! We
still think that Bob Skir's page is about the best source for show info, but our BMach
page is certainly worth a visit! Enjoy.
10/2 There are Transmetal 2
Recolors being released! I just found a new box being opened at a MN Walmart!
The two that looked the most different to me was a TM2 Dinobot where the navy blue
was turned a strange aqua color. I didn't like it too much and think it's too bad
they didn't make it a metallic gray like it is in the shows. That'd be
awesome. The other is (a more noticibly different toy) Prowl, where the white
feathers are replaced by a nice (more owl-like) brown. I love it and think it looks
much better than the original. Click HERE for a sample pic of this toy
in the box. The new color is more noticible in robot mode and helps differente the
organic from the mechanical components of this TM2. Enjoy BMachines ep3!
10/1 Is the
BW Inferno a reprogrammed, Predacon version of the original Autobot Inferno? What do
you think?! Learn more about the original Inferno and others in the newly
updated Transformers Year 2 page. All of the
"new" cars from that year now have their own pages: Grapple, Hoist,
Inferno, Red Alert, Skids, Smokescreen, and Tracks. Enjoy!
10/1 Don't forget! ANOTHER new
BEAST MACHINES (episode 3) airs this Sat!
10/1 I don't really consider it
"news" but I called the Hasbo "We Really Do Care" line and they told
me that TM2 Blackarachnia has started shipping. (Does anyone still care? Don't
get me wrong, I'm excited to buy the toy but the luster of seeing her in the stores is
gone for me! Heck, in Hasbor's original news release, they said she'd be in stores
in May!) Sheesh!
Our page has been running a lot longer than 4/8/98 but I deleted older
news a long time ago!
