Year in Review 2015 - The Fans Choice Giveaway Contest Is Now Over
ExVee - Wednesday, January 06, 2016


Thanks so much to everyone who came to share their picks for the best of 2015 in Transformers with us. We've enjoyed following your replies over the last week, and we're at work right now picking out the winners of the contest. We'll be announcing the results live on Radio Free Cybtertron on the January 13th broadcast, so be sure to watch that here on the TFormers front page, or tfradio.net/live. And of course we'll contact the winners directly via board PM afterward. The contents of the original contest post are archived below.

It's all well and good for us to tell you what we thought of 2015, and we're glad you decided to stay with us and hear our thoughts and opinions on the last year. Without you, the readers, we would have no reason to do any of this, so thank you! As a way to express our appreciation to our readers, we're giving you the opportunity to make your voices heard, and have a chance to win something in the process! We're giving away three BigBadToyStore gift certificates, and all you have to do is tell us what your best picks of 2015 are - keep reading for full details.


You've seen our picks for best (and not so best) of 2015, but what did you think? Share your picks with us and you could win one of three gift certificates to BigBadToyStore! Entering is very simple, just go to this topic on our forums, and tell us your picks for at least three of the following categories:


  • Best Official Toy (Hasbro)

  • Best Official Toy (TakaraTomy)

  • Best Masterpiece Toy

  • Best Unofficial (third party) Toy

  • Best Comic Issue Or Storyline

  • Best News Item (any category)

  • Best Toy Reveal



You can submit answers for as many categories as you like, but please answer a minimum of three of them. You'll have from time of posting to 11:59pm Central Time on Tuesday, January 12th to submit your answers; after that no further entries will be considered. One respondant will be selected at random from the qualifying entries to receive the first prize, a $50 BigBadToyStore gift certificate. But that isn't your only chance to win! When you answer with your best picks, tell us about your choices. After entries close and we randomly select the first prize winner, we'll go and choose the two best responses, who will each win one $25 BigBadToyStore gift certificate. So to sum up, share your best picks in at least three categories, and tell us about your picks, and you'll have up to three chances to win!

Winners will be announced during the live broadcast of Radio Free Cybertron on Wednesday, January 13th, which you can watch here on TFormers or at tfradio.net/live usually starting at around 7pm Central Time. Don't worry if you can't catch the live show, we'll also notify the winners directly afterwards! And now, some not-so-fine print:

Must be a registered member of the TFormers Community Forums to enter. Giveaway is open to anyone in any location served by BigBadToyStore. Winners will be contacted via message board private message to arrange for delivery of prizes; if a winner does not respond to claim their prize within a reasonable amount of time, an alternate winner may be selected at our discretion. Prize cannot be substituted or altered. Answering more than the minimum entry requirements does not imply a greater chance of winning. Responses not meeting the minimum requirements will be disqualified. Current and former staff of TFormers or current partner sites are not eligible to win.

That said, come on in, share your thoughts, and good luck to everyone entering!

We're excited to launch a new feature this week, called "Why, Transformers?" - or "WhyTF?" for catchier branding purposes. This new video series features Eric Crownover (aka EricCrowbar) joining Chris (aka ExVee) to discuss a question each week around a topic of interest. For the first episode, Chris and Eric talk about why we believe there were once going to be as many as four Titans Return box sets, and why we ultimately only got two - even though those two that came out look to have performed significantly better than the Combiner Wars sets. Click through to watch the episode right now!
Two weeks ago we brought you news of Toys R Us looking at options to address debts coming due at the start of the new year. Today we have a followup, as Bloomberg reports the retailer is planning to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. This sounds alarming, but is not an automatic death sentence, and this act could allow the toy store to continue operations for several years - ideally enough to get out from under its debts. Reportedly some suppliers had pre-emptively reduced shipments to Toys R Us, but at last word, Hasbro was maintaining normal business, so Transformers availability should continue as usual for the time being. Click through for a link to the original article.
While this is not a matter specifically relevant to Transformers, the future of one of the major toy retailers will undoubtedly have echos in our neck of the woods. CNBC is reporting that Toys R Us has engaged legal counsel to help find a solution to help address its current debt load, said to be around $400 million. Bankruptcy protection is noted among the options that are possible in this scenario, though no course of action has been decided so far. Find out more below!


Via ICv2, we've learned that IDW, publisher of Transformers comics, among a wide range of licensed Hasbro properties, is reporting a loss of $1.8 million, which is being described as a serious drop from the same time last year where the end of quarter showed a profit level of $81,000. From the article, no specific area seems to be put under scrutiny for leading to the current outcome, with many factors of circumstance cited as potential contributors. For our particular corner of IDW, we probably wouldn't expect to see major shakeups in the Hasbro-verse just yet, but a continued decline might lead to re-examining the current directions in various areas.
As a person with no conventional artistic skills, one of the ways I like to express myself from time to time is by digitally recoloring photos of toys to be other things - Photoshopping! What-If Wednesday is a new occasional feature where I'll share my "what if?" recolors, either inspired by my own ideas, or sometimes from other source media. Our first What-If Wednesday takes on the Headmaster Bludgeon concept seen in the Magna Convoy comic this week, which we get only a limited view of. How might it look and work as a toy? Keep reading and find out!
