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:
http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/firearms-weapons-knives.html

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.

Are you looking for Generation 1, MP-05 or any other Megatron? You can find online retailers who carry them all at Shoppertron.com

Sideshow and Prime 1 Studio are proud to present Ultra Magnus from Transformers: Generation 1. Designed by renowned artist Josh Nizzi, famous for his interpretation for the Transformers movies.

Once again, Twitter user @miiakira2017 has posted an image of their Transformers-related design work. Today, it's a classic car- the specific make, if any, eludes RAC - that would have turned into a laser pistol-wielding cowboy. Though there's a slight resemblance to 2010's Hunt for the Decepticons Scout-class Hubcap, the replies peg this as a Diaclone-era design, so well before that figure was designed and likely a coincidence.

Hobby Lobby has had a few waves now of different kinds of Transformers art stamped in to sheet metal. A new offering in this line has just recently hit, bringing some new choices. We found today two pieces featuring G1 Optimus, and Bumblebee, represented in the design of the 2006 Classics toy, at Hobby Lobby. They were priced at $18.99 each, which may seem a touch steep for something the size of perhaps a small calendar. But we can't deny the art on them look really sharp. Click through for images of both!

The @miiakira2017 Twitter account continues to share G1 design work! Today, we've got some sketches for Octane, described here in a very British way as a "Tank Lorry"; artwork for a pair of folding launcher bays designed in the Diaclone Car Robots days, and what are described as figure studies for "erasers," but don't seem to match either the Decoys or the G1 erasers that were produced - at least the US ones.
