Toyworld sale Catalogue for September
Oct 09, 2016 - 8:04 PM - by griffin
No... that title isn't wrong. According to the Toyworld website, this sale catalogue ended by October 1st, but it is still being hosted on their site as the "latest catalogue"... so it could still be used for price-matching, by stores like ToysRUs, and the group of "Mr Toys" Toyworld stores, who are bound by the regular...

Transformers Movie 10th anniversary toys from Japan
Oct 08, 2016 - 10:29 PM - by griffin
It was always expected that there would be an anniversary series of toys for the Movie series in 2017, just as a marketing ploy to sell some old and new toys, but just three years after TakaraTomy had their first few Lost Age Advanced toys resemble an anniversary toyline, they are giving us another set of assorted toys from the four previous Movies.

Oct 03, 2016 - 10:02 PM - by griffin
The Japanese TV Magazine is having another Transformers freebie in November, and this time it is the RID Legion Optimus, in a white, black, navy colour scheme, and called Blizzard Optimus.

Despite being free with the magazine, it will end up being pricey on the secondary market for us non-Japanese people who might want one.

All four Transformers Movies on GO! in October
Sep 30, 2016 - 10:48 PM - by griffin
Commercials on the various 9 network channels this week have been boasting about their Transformers Month, screening all four Transformers Movies in October, with one each week, starting this Sunday 2nd, at about 8.30pm.

Looks like Channel 10 finally gave up the rights to all of the Transformers movies, and now Channel 9 has them all.

(Channel 9 only just played TF4 a couple weeks ago, so it isn't unusual for the network to repeat it so soon on one of their other... [Read More]

That's the good news (if you have Pay TV).
