eBay Bans Unmarked Megatron Gun Toys
artimus - Saturday, April 28, 2007

eBay pulls ALL unmarked Megatron toys that transform into a Walter P-38. It is a blanket ban on all reissues, Masterpieces and vintage Megatrons. Violations may result in suspensions of sccounts. Please read further for their reply.

I just did a search for Megatron Masterpiece and I noticed that they were all gone! I then contacted Ebay customer and this is what I got in reply:

"The sale of weapons is highly regulated by the government, and these items can harm the eBay Community. For these reasons, eBay restricts the sale of weapons to a very few types, and these sales can take place only under very specific conditions.

For example, members are permitted to sell airsoft guns, cap guns, paint ball guns, toy guns, and replica, look-alike, or imitation firearms but only if the sellers meet all of the following conditions:

+ The item has a clear, permanent marking (usually a plug inserted in the barrel or a blaze orange marking) that meets federal regulations

+ The item can't be converted to shoot a projectile

+ Any picture of the item in the listing is the actual item for sale, not a stock photo

+ No picture of the item is a close up of only part of the item. For example, a photo that displays only the tip of the gun is not permitted.

+ The item, seller, and buyer are located in the United States

+ The item is shipped within the United States

We realize that some replica firearms are very old and may lack permanently attached markings, but even if this is the case, we still do not allow them to be listed on eBay.

For more information on the eBay Firearms, Weapons, and Knives policy, please visit:

Please note: violation of this or other eBay policies may result in forfeit of eBay fees on canceled listings, limits on account privileges and account suspension."

I then did a search for Megatron reissue, and Megatron G1. NOTHING showed up. I don't know what spurred this, but it may have something to do with the Virginia Tech shootings and the grief Ebay got for selling the killer the bullets. If anyone as any input please feel free to divulge.

More Generation 1 News
Transformers At The Moon has posted the latest in their series of deleted audio and extended scenes from the original 1984 The Transformers cartoon series! This time, they've got over ten minutes' worth of dialogue from "Heavy Metal War," featuring the first appearance of the Constructicons. Keep reading to see the video along with a transcript of the dialogue.
The closure of ToysRUs provokes a lot of emotions - sadness, frustration at the circumstances, and in some a misguided sense of satisfaction stemming from their latter-day pricing habits. But at some point in our lives a great many of us were ToysRUs Kids. And so longtime Transformers fan and ASMzine proprietor Phil Zeman has created the site I Didn't Want to Grow Up, which is accepting submissions of your stories and reminiscences of visiting what was once the premiere source of action figures for children and collectors. Click through for a link!
Few would guess the last piece to be reissued from the original Transformers Generation 1 series would be the music scores. Even though the original cartoons have been reissued, updated and restored multiple times. Fans that have been asking for copies of the Original Sound Tracks (OST) masters have finally gotten theirs, on vinyl of all things. IF, they were fast enough to buy one of the 2,000 copies that sold out in less than 10 minutes. The good news is a second pressing is in the works.
ALL GOOD THINGS…! Rodimus and the Crusadercons have reached their final destination. The trouble is, it’s not Cyberutopia. In fact, it’s not ANYWHERE. But they’d better get used to it, because they’re going to be there until the end of Time…
After selling out their limited run within minutes, Enjoy The Ride Records has announced that their vinyl G1 soundtrack LP will be heading back to the presses later this year! Details and an exact timeframe are not known at this time, but it's good to know that access to this (at present) vinyl-only release will be expanding somewhat. Keep reading to see the announcement!
