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!

2017 was a year. It occupied 12 pages of a traditional calendar, or even more if you had a weekly or even one of those fancy-learnin' word-a-day calendars! And during that year, things relating to the Transformers happened. Some more positive than others, or more fondly looked back on. Not everything was a winner, after all. Thus, I'll memorialize the year that was with some of my best remembered times in Transformers - in no particular order since I'm bad at chronology sometimes as well as weighing priority of a memory over others. I am literally the best at lists.


We learned late this afternoon that both Steam and Playstation Network have delisted a number of Transformers video games from their store pages. Affected by this are War For Cybertron, Fall of Cybertron, Rise of The Dark Spark, and Transformers Devastation. None of these titles can be purchased digitally on the named platforms as of today, though users who have purchased them previously are still able to download and install the games. At last report, the XBox Marketplace had not followed suit in removing them. We can only speculate right now whether this is due to an elapsed license, or some other factor at work, but as of right now, tracking down physical media, where applicable, seems the only option now for obtaining these games.
The BBC and The Guardian are both reporting on a new development with the UK arm of Toys R Us that's putting serious pressure on the retailer. While the recently discussed bankruptcy protection proceedings of Toys R Us here in the US is not directly impacting other regions, Toys R Us UK is nonetheless investigating solutions to deal with its own financial problems, but with an added wrinkle: If the company cannot contribute £9 million (about $12 million) to its pension fund at least one state agency, the Pensions Protection Fund may vote against its current restructuring proposal, which could ultimately lead to all the UK stores shutting down. Keep reading for more.


We reported about a week ago on the possibility of a merger between Hasbro and Mattel, initiated by Hasbro themselves. We have word via Reuters that this effort did not proceed very far, and as of the current time the dealings are not moving forward. Reuters reports via confidential sources that part of the failure to deal at this time was due to what Mattel indicated was an "undervaluing" of the company by Hasbro. We don't expect much more to develop on this anytime soon, but as this wasn't the first time Hasbro has put out feelers, we're also sure it won't be the last. Find a link to the report in the full article below!
I'm ExVee; my name is Chris. If you read Gizmodo, or know people that do, you probably heard about a photo of a small piece of deco work on the brand new Power of The Primes Jazz, which says in a Cybertronic font "MAGA". It's a font whose development is credited to longtime super-fan Jim Sorenson, and which has been used on Transformers toys here and there for a while now. One notable use was on Titans Return Seaspray where it was used to inscribe the name Alana inside the forearms, referencing Seaspray's love interest from an episode of the G1 cartoon. What you may not know is, I'm the one who took that original photo, with only the best of intentions. But, we all know where that can lead you. Keep reading...
