Just up on the Imaginarium Art group page is a teaser images for their soon to be revealed G1 Bumblebee statue. Compared with his movie counterpart that has been less than meets the eyes, sans cowboy trash talking. Fans of the classic cartoons will be glad to see this little guy bought to life. See the full teaser image below.
Have you ever been so enamored of a piece of G1 packaging art that you wished you could own a copy to hang in your home? You might be able to scratch that itch right now. We've recently learned that Mark Watts, artist for a range of classic Transformers packaging is selling large prints of his work for use with his "Table Art" system - which is essentially a thick metal frame that can be converted to a small table. There are 28 prints to choose from, but at $95 per 22"x34" piece, it's not exactly a small investment. Click through for a few samples and link back to the artist's website.

In a saddeningly timely turn of events, CNN Money
has reported that Charles Lazarus,
founder of ToysRUs, has passed away at the age of 94. Lazarus began the business that came to be known as ToysRUs in 1948, opening his first all-toy store in 1957 and staying with the company until 1994. TFormers expresses our deepest condolences Mr. Lazarus' friends and family.

On Facebook, XM Studios has posted a new teaser render for an upcoming licensed Megatron statue they're working on. The highly stylized take on G1 Megatron has all of the recognizable elements, though done in a style that's more like movie-meets-G1. Interestingly it's also called out as being "1/10 scale". But without an indication what they're basing the "real" height on, that doesn't offer much clarity toward the size that this statue will ultimately be. We've mirrored the teaser image below, click through and take a look!

Transformers At The Moon
has posted the latest in their series of deleted audio and extended scenes from the original 1984 The Transformers
cartoon series! This time, they've got over ten minutes' worth of dialogue from "Heavy Metal War," featuring the first appearance of the Constructicons. Keep reading to see the video along with a transcript of the dialogue.
The closure of ToysRUs provokes a lot of emotions - sadness, frustration at the circumstances, and in some a misguided sense of satisfaction stemming from their latter-day pricing habits. But at some point in our lives a great many of us were ToysRUs Kids. And so longtime Transformers fan and ASMzine
proprietor Phil Zeman
has created the site I Didn't Want to Grow Up,
which is accepting submissions of your stories and reminiscences of visiting what was once the premiere source of action figures for children and collectors. Click through for a link!
