TFormers.com's Featured Toy of the Month is Energon Tow-Line! A decent Combat-class figure (the Deluxe equivalent) with a creative implementation of the Energon Autobots' combining "Powerlinx" gimmick, Tow-Line is also the homage/update you'd never expect to happen: the toy
version of G1 Ratchet and Ironhide, complete with battle station!
Transfan2 of our TFans
board has posted pictures of the Transformers Collectors' Club exclusive figure Landquake. Landquake is the second of five figures that will be offered as exclusive figures from the club that will be able to form a combiner. Check out the gallery right here
While continuing my hunt for the elusive Wing Saber (still haven't found him, yet) at a local Target, I came across a mis-package of Sky Shadow sealed to a TreadShot backing.
Normally, I'm not particularly crazy about errors, however, being that this was my first actual find in the wild (that has a correction!) I was a bit more, I don't know if excited is the word, but something along those lines would suffice.
I actually came across this find a few weeks ago, but it's taken me this long to find a corrected (or normal) Sky Shadow that was in a Mint package and was not damaged or had a poor paint job.
Has anyone else seen the error anywhere?
Sky Shadow Error #1
Sky Shadow Error #2
Sky Shadow Error #3
Thanks to Mr. seven of the JP Image Board. We have fresh pics of the McDonalds Energon Happy Meal toys that were released only in the Netherlands. See shots of Optimus Prime, Megatron, Unicron and Ironhide. The 12 cm high figures each come with a light/sound feature that triggers when they interact with the Energon cube accessory. Check out the pics of them all here

The Optimus Vs Megatron two pack was at Toys R Us today and when I openned the box I discovered that Optimus came with TWO of his rifles. I'm not sure if this is a common issue but I know the original japanese release only had one. Check this out, did you set come with two guns?
