Generation 1 Japan TF Fans
Following the big news from Tokyo Toy Show on the Masterpiece Fan's Choice campaign, Takara Tomy have launced their site dedicated to the Transformers 30th Anniversary with a presentation and special poll that is open only to those collectors who have accumulated robot points from previous Transformers purchases. This goes to show how seriously Takara Tomy is about supporting fans who buy their products by giving them a special role in deciding the next Masterpiece figure selection. For those who cannot vote in Japan, cast your vote in poll to see what others would choose.

Member Jermey Hartwick let us know about an article that was featured in the Hudson Valley Times Herald Record about him and his Transformers collection.

It even had a color photo with me sitting in front of this cardboard display stand I own from when TFTM was first released on VHS." Check out his 15 mins of fame here
