TFsource Transformers Collector Interview with Marco Salerno

By Maz on Saturday, December 01, 2012



You would think it’s getting harder to find collectors with something fresh to contribute during these interviews, but there is certainly no shortage of quality when it comes to those left to feature. This month’s spotlight falls on Italian Transformers and pre-Transformers collector Marco Salerno. A shining beacon of humility, modesty and quick with praise for collectors he feels are more worthy than he of said spotlight, Marco is an example to all of how best to make use of the information available to today’s collector.

One of the most knowledgeable, well-read and cultured members of the community gives us a glimpse into his quietly but seriously stunning collection, and we do hope your eye is as good as Marco’s in spotting some of the indescribably rare toys he’s found and subgroups he has completed. Marco says it’s an honour to be featured, but it is we who are truly honoured… Read More at TFsource

Jamie Young of the Facebook page Foamtastic Props has constructed his very own life-sized replica of G1 Ravage! Quite possibly a bit larger than life in fact, Young's Ravage is constructed primarily from foam anti-fatigue mats. Young reports that since the photos used in the article were taken, he's added Ravage's hip rockets and also constructed a Laserbeak! Keep reading to see it all!
Just in from the Loyal Subjects are more details on the wave 3 Transformers G1-themed Action Vinyls product line. With 12 new figures are on the way including Rumble and Frenzy, Lazerbeak and Buzzsaw, Sunstreaker, Blitzwing, Hound, and more. The good news is they are now BIGGER and better with more details, accessories and other upgrades coming February 2015. Read on for mo about them now.
Blacklai who we know well for bringing us out first in hand looks at Combiner Wars wave 1 has given us a new gallery featuring Year of The Goat Optimus Prime. The ...unique... clear and gold redeco of Laser Optimus Prime also finds itself with pink parts in various places, as well as working lights. The downside is the lack of factory stickers means the screws on the chest and shoulder parts are fully visible, a distinct downgrade from the original and 2002 Robots in Disguise releases. Keep reading to check out the photos!
Having just yesterday learned of the projected price of this set for Toys R Us in Canada, we have a report of a US sighting of the Platinum Series three pack of the G1 Insecticons. The attractively packaged set was found at a K-Mart in California, and while it's not the $99.99 Toys R Us Canada indicated, it is selling for $79.99. Whether a set of fresh made Insecticons is worth considerably more than the cost of complete vintage toys will have to be up to you. Click through for a photo of the in-store find.
The Transformers Facebook page has updated tonight with a post about Year of The Goat Optimus Prime. Along with declaring it means he's the Greatest Of All Time (GOAT, you see), they also announced that the toy would be coming to "specialty retailers" this Spring. While the deco is rather unusual, the underlying Laser Optimus Prime toy is excellent. The only worry is that with the Insecticon three pack leading the way, it may be quite expensive by the time it gets here!
