Fun Publications has flipped the switch on the Transformers Collectors Club Online Store, almost two months after the store was closed
for server migration and bandwidth issues related to heavy traffic. The store is now back online for a final test of the new server by allowing customers to ping the store for some products. This follows a string of store-related issues for Fun Publications as the company was forced to turn to an outside company to power the online store after the home-brewed store was the subject of a massive security breach
using SQL injection hacks earlier this year.
The Transformers Collectors Club store will close down for "several days" to migrate to a new server to deal with the demand for heavy traffic, Fun Publications announced today. The store was experiencing high amount of traffic today causing the server to crash and was subsequently shut down by the host company. Fun Publications has worked out a deal with the host company to migrate the store to another server, but will need several days to do so. If you placed an order today during the high demand time and received a confirmation email or see a charge on your credit card, your order still went through. If you did not, you must wait until the store returns to place an order.

The offering was limited to 150 sets for 35,900 Yen (~$452 USD). Continue reading...
