TakaraTomy is making no secret of an aim to "perfect" as much as they can the Combiner Wars toys for their iteration of the toyline. Groove is joining their Defensor as a full limb, raising the bar just a bit from restoring classic team lineups with recolors as they're doing with Superion and Menasor. It doesn't seem much of a leap that they could make an original Blast Off figure for when they get to Bruticus, but what are the chances of seeing these made available through Hasbro? Keep reading...
Official Transformers toys are released in most of the world by Hasbro, and in Japan by Takara Tomy, formerly Takara. Takara, a Japanese toy manufacturer, produced the first toys that would become Transformers in Japan in the early 1980s. Hasbro saw these Diaclone and Micro Change Series toys and licensed them, creating the Transformers brand. Today, both companies perpetuate the toy line, but is it true to say that Takara (Tomy) Transformers toys are regularly better than Hasbro releases? Keep reading!
We have recently floated the possibility that we are experiencing another golden age of Transformers collecting, and a majority seemed to agree with us that the live action Transformers movies have been good for the health of the brand. With so much choice available, the topic of choosing my purchases has never been far from this blog and the articles seen in the last year.

The week's news, a lively discussion on Transformers as an addiction, Twitter Theater and more!
Last night, I was looking through convention pics of the dealer room floor and looking at insane stacks of "rare" figures...boxed, carded, bagged you name it. When I see quantities like that piled up from big sellers, even when a lot of it had been "sold out" some time ago it made me think. Are we paying insane prices for some MISB figure on the assumption the figure is very rare when in reality there are still plenty nobody ever bought and are sitting in mass in some retailers warehouses?
IDW's take on the Transformers Ongoing title for the last year and a half has focused on change. It's been received with mixed reception, and however you take it, personally I believe every human being is a creature of habit and change shakes things up. Which is why the news of Andy Schmidt leaving IDW just blows my mind. It's reasonable to expect he wasn't going to stay with IDW forever, but I think at this point in the game I sort of really thought he would. Read more after the jump.
This recent article at Kotaku.com asserts that playing a Combiner in a Video Game would be akin to "like playing Call of Duty, but you would only control a leg." Combiner play will evidently not be a component of War for Cybertron multi-player, though in the aforementioned article says lead developer, Matt Tieger, and his team considered it. The author goes on to speculate that this means the concept is untenable. As is my custom, I call BS.
Update: According to Box Office Mojo, Avatar has beaten Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen as the top grossing film of 2009 by $27 million. With two days until the end of the 2009 calendar year, it is official that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, much to my glee and to the chagrin of many, has topped the box office of 2009 with a whopping $402.2 million domestic gross ($432.9 million overseas). According to the website Box Office Mojo, the closest film to gross as much domestically is Harry Potter $301.96 million, but performed a lot better overseas with $627.4 million, mainly due to the larger following of the franchise within the UK region.
