BotCon Threatens Legal Action Over Stolen Toys
BaCon - Wednesday, April 16, 2008


FunProductions Brian Savage is going on a rampage trying to stop people from selling and buying BotCon items not distributed through them. He posted a letter on Asian forums threatening legal action if the "stolen" BotCon toys are not returned. Check out the letter posted on the HK news group Talk.Transformers:
    This is going out to each Ebay seller who has recently tried to auction BotCon toys. All of they [sic] toys you are selling are stolen. You know this when you buy them out of the package.

    As you see, I have the power to cancel your auctions and I have each of your personal information provided by Ebay.

    If you do not want us to continue prosecuting you through the police and Ebay (who will cancel your account), you need to return the stolen property to me or to Hasbro in China.

    If I don't here [sic] back from you that you have shipped our items back in 48 hours, I will press forward with both Ebay and the police. Consider this your only warning.

    You can send the items to me at:

    Brian Savage
    Fun Publications, Inc.
    225 Cattle Baron Parc Dr
    Fort Worth Texas 76108

    or

    Antony Bao
    Hasbro
    $)AIn[Z;*GH3G6+2?9$R5Gx6~:E3'7?NeB%/ Antony Bao/ 0755-26901222-693

    Thanks for your attention in this matter. Even if YOU didn't steal it.

    Selling stolen property is a punishable offense.

    Do not ever purchase ANY Transformers from Chinese auctions or vendors as Hasbro is also looking to prosecute.

    Regards,

    Brian Savage

I checked a few boxes: SOC figures are either made in Japan or Hong Kong.

Probably also made in China, though.

Given the number of amazing non-Hasbro transformable mechas coming out of Japan, I guess I could survive that idea for a while. A very little while, considering how great the Animated figures are.

Yes. I agree 100%. I URGE every Transformers fan ever born, EVAR, to immediately cease and desist buying any Transformers products. ...at least until AFTER I get all the Animated figures I want.

Then I expect you will do your part to help and stop buying the things produced in those factories...such as every Transformer ever...to send the message to the companies that use them that the suffering needs to stop?

The Transformers’ Collector’s Club has started their final clearance sale. In an email to former members, they announced the beginning of the final Clearance Sale. Everything in the store is 10% off with further 10% reductions, "Approximately every week," till they drop to 90% at which time, they will continue sales til all the stock is gone or the end of the year arrives. Read on to see the full members letter sent to the Club, courtesy of the Allspark.
The time has come for the end of Fun Publications' licensed Transformers offerings, with the final shipment of TFSS 5 now reaching subscribers. By process of elimination we knew this shipment would be Toxitron and Counterpunch, the final parts needed to make the Wreckage combiner. And amazingly we managed to make it all the way to this point without the bonus figure being spoiled! We'll respect the desire for those who want to remain unknowing, so you'll have to click through to learn the final figure's identity. We've got several photos thanks to SeiberBirdR who did a quick post-unboxing shoot. Check them out below!
The last series of Figure Subscription Service offerings from the now-defunct Transformers Collectors Club is continuing to slowly be fulfilled. Subscribers will be finding the second shipment arriving in the next few days, with those lucky - and local to the Fun Pub office - already getting toys in hand. PumaTheHunter on Twitter is one such, and he's posted a nice batch of photos showing Double Pretenders Optimus and Megatron. Most of the focus is on Megatron, but both toys are represented nicely. Keep reading for more info, and of course the photos!
Thanks to a tip from Eric Crownover, who just got the first shipment of the final Transformers Figure Subscription Service! For those who may be wondering about Paradron Medic - who is a reuse of the 2014 Generations Arcee mold - we now know which set of hands she's using. Keep reading to see for yourself!
From SeiberBirdR we've got a first look at which toys are now on their way to subscribers of the final TFSS assortment. Shipping in pairs to get the toys distributed as quickly as possible, the first set is Fractyl with Scorponok, and Lifeline with Quickslinger, making for a very green and purple shipment. SeiberBirdR took quite a few photos of the toys as well as their bio cards. You can find all of those mirrored below in the gallery. Keep reading to see!
