Site Outage: As I'm sure you've noticed the site has been having some issues since last night. Basically, someone hacked the server and was sending a massive amount of spam through the server. The flow of e-mails was blocked and I began the process of cleaning it up. Some things are still not working as part of the repairs we had to do involved updating some packages which may have cause compatibility issues with some features.

I am working to fix the forum and everything else but as luck would have it I'm super busy at work and it has to take priority at this point, please bear with me, I'm working on fixing everything.

Thanks

Toys: Nevermore has updated and expanded a whole range of toy checklists. Principal lines at the moment are Transformers Animated and Classics / Universe / Henkei. Soldiering on with new releases are club and convention lines, Transformers crossed with Star Wars and Marvel characters, Masterpiece stuff and further Encore reissues. In a similar vein, there are still some releases to come for the Transformers movie toys, final Titanium series figures, and some Binaltech mould reuses plus the all-new Alternity line. Lots of stuff for Transformers collectors...

Quick stuff...
Comics: Inflatable Dalek reviews the Shockwave Spotlight and concluding issue of Joe/TF, Art of War #5. More character spotlight issues are coming soon, and you can check out previews for them here and what all else is upcoming here. The Nightbeat spotlight and Stormbringer #4 should be at your local comic book store today.
Cartoons: DrSpengler gets stuck into guides for more of season two. If you're enjoying his writing style, you can check out more at Filmsy.com, which includes reviews of other 80s classics.
Toys: Clay has recklessly stepped up to the plate and started helping out in a greater capacity with toy reviews, so expect to see a bunch soon. I'll get Clay to introduce himself as well. (Why didn't someone tell me I'd managed to mark the July reviews down as being input in October?)
Creative: Nothing seems to have majorly broken in the overhaul, so expect more to follow as I find my notes or steal Clay's... first in is a selection of art produced or coloured by the extremely talented Josh Burcham and some fiction by new contributor LKW.

Got quite a lot of stuff half-done offline, but here're some things that've been added in on the site recently that you might not have spotted yet...
Fandom: Cliffjumper's not-weekly Weekly World Transformers picks up its whip and takes aim at the horse carcass once more.
Toys: Nevermore has kept the quick FAQ updated, Cliffjumper has undertaken an 80s Gobots checklist that he'd value some assistance with, and I've added in a mirror of original-era techspecs -- there're about six hundred, but if anyone has the few missing, please stop by the forums.
Comics: DrSpengler adds a couple of pieces to the TV Magazine art gallery and has summaries of the Battlestars manga #1-10, plus his own translation of the Battlestars mail-away. If you've ever wondered who Super Megatron was, check them out! On the modern comics side, you've got my reviews of Stormbringer #1 and #2, and Hearts of Steel #1, #2 and #3, written whilst waiting for things to finish running... and, as always, the IDW roadmap is (fingers crossed) up-to-date. Lots of Transformers comics coming this Fall, including the Shockwave Spotlight due on Wednesday.

Recent additions round-up; creative work / toy reviews to follow ASAP.
Cartoons: DrSpengler continues full steam ahead, adding the first part of Season Two to his Transformers Episode Guide.
Comics: if you've ever wondered what Dreamwave continuity looks like laid out methodically, take a look at Chris McFeely's Dreamwave Timeline if you haven't already. Also on the subject of DW information, Primal has compiled and shares sales figures for that era's TF and Joes/TF comics.
Fandom: TFVanguard adds an additional thirteen checked and updated typefaces themed around various Transformers series, which you can find on the fonts page. He's also put together icon sets for the Brazilian Estrela characters, Scramble City, European 'G1'/G2 bridge characters and the new upcoming Classics toyline.

Stuff that's been added recently... this round-up wasn't supposed to take two weeks, but it's at least a decent size now it's here...
Fandom: Kremzeek75 tells us about his collection and there are two more icon sets from TFVanguard, Machine Wars and Robot Masters. He's also provided up-to-date versions of fonts you've probably seen widely used online, starting with Action Force, Convoy and Transformers — note the fixed Autobot symbol. Cliffjumper ran some more gentle ribbing of news stories in Weekly World Transformers. We also have two extra-special features for you — first up, Clay shares with us an academic paper he developed from a throwaway remark in a toy review written for the site: The Transformers' Binaltech: Sixty Years of Japanese Pacifism. Something a bit different, eh? The second feature is an in-depth colouring tutorial by GrungeWerX of the IDW and other forums. Check it out!
Cartoons: DrSpengler brings scans of the Japanese Pioneer DVD covers...
Comics: ...and he's also translated the G2 mini-comics that were packed in with the Japanese release of the Generation 2 toys. In comics news, Dalek's review of TF/Joes "Art of War" #3 notes that the series is picking up, and another piece of TFDatabase makes it back online with Cliffjumper's Armada UK guide, including issue details plus a side-order of toy comics.
Creative: everyone should check out this professional-quality video by Toriton, featuring a host of classic characters! He's also done some retro groupshots. fourth_heir has been drawing Energon characters, Starscream and Jetfire, which you can find in his main gallery. optimusskids delivers two large galleries of Custom Alternators and War Within Dinobots, Pun-3X has done further work on an Alternators Prowl, and LEGO builder alanyap offers Blurr and Predaking entries. Clay moves into kitbashing with Snow Ligerjack before continuing with parts two and three in his "silent" photo-story series and chronicling The Return of Sunrunner.
Toys: before we get to the reviews, let me direct you to some new galleries of interesting TF bootlegs contributed by Hatch. Thanks for additional review images to Notabot and Osku, for reviews to Clay, Numbat, dedicon, ravimusprime and Heinrad, and of course to Clay for proofing everything. Reviewed are: Tailgate, Cybertron Cannonball and , Beast Machines Strika and Magmatron, Beast Wars Insecticon, THS-02 Convoy, RiD Megatron Megabolt, Universe Tiny Tins Ironhide and Mirage.

Fandom: TFVanguard has volunteered some icon sets you may be interested in as avatars, beginning with Generation 2, the Japanese Transformers series Beast Wars 2 and Beast Wars Neo, plus 123Gobots. Cliffjumper interjects a second installment of Weekly World Transformers.
Cartoons: I found the BW2/Neo icons quite useful for context when reading through DrSpengler's Beast Wars 2 and Beast Wars Neo series profiles, so they're also linked in to those pages now...
Toys: Thanks to numbat, DDM, ravimus prime, Heinrad, Sir Auros, Seerus Nalaius, Clay and mongoosehuman we have reviews (many with pics) of Alternators Optimus Prime, Ricochet and Rollbar; Beast Machines Primal Prime, Skydive, Supreme Cheetor, Ultra Jetstorm, Bat Optimus Primal, B'Bboom, Rhinox, Tigatron; Cybertron Defense Hot Shot, Defense Hot Shot, Defense Red Alert, Defense Scattorshot and Thunderblast; 'G1'/G2 Windcharger and Rescue Force "Leozack", plus Japanese Galaxy Force Soundblaster.

The winning entry can be viewed here. Optimus has also posted some of the other entries to the competition, all of which are excellent pieces of art.

Okay guys, I've an apology to make. Unfortunately over the weekend my e-mail client...messed up and that's putting it mildly, unfortunately I lost all the e-mail that was in the account, along with items for TFArchive that were yet to go online. Sadly this included all the TF Profile updates (amongst other minor updates), also this is why I haven't replied to any e-mails sent my way. Optimus Magnus has assured me that the profiles will be back with me soon and will hopefully go online in the near future.

As a small Christmas present to all you loyal TFArchivers, I've been working my ass off to get the TF Universe profiles online...and they ARE!!! View the legendary TF Universe profiles
Well, as I'm sure you've already noticed TFArchive's undergone a few more cosmetic changes! I have made massive efforts to make the site easier to navigate than ever before. We now have a new headline placer to keep you guys up-to-date on the latest TFArchive.com feature, or keep you guessing as to what's coming next! Every section is getting a massive over-haul in terms of looks, content and accessibility. Please bear with us in this busy time

Thanks to Sir Auros, the wallpapers I made a couple of months back are completed, and I'm happy with them. Ultra Magnus, Soundwave and Shockwave have all undergone slight changes, to improve their quality.
Once again I must apologise for the lack of updates...This is a busy time of year for me (as with us all) and TFArchive really has to sit on the back-burner for the time being. I am striving to get some stuff done in time for Christmas, but as TFArchive is really a one man show, it's pretty difficult to achieve everything I want to have done in time.

Including :- Brawn, Wheeljack, Blurr and Hot Rod to name but a few.

If anyone out there is reading this, we really need someone with a good digital camera and plenty of toys to help out with photographs...if this is you Mail Me!

For many years we have been the fore-runners for episode downloads in the transformers community, offering everything from the original series and currently Transformers Armada, sadly however, this time has come to an end.

Another cosmetic change today. In keeping with TFArchive's attempts to make the site user friendly we've reduced the size of the site menu! This is mainly for people still using 800x600 resolutions, but makes the place look a bit nicer. Leave us your thoughts!

- Comics have been moved to a new server, and I believe I have corrected all the incorrect links if you have any problems let me know. Sorry for the downtime
- Many people are still complaining about the episodes server being down, I can assure you the server is not down. The most likely problem is your ISP has not updated their DNS entries for it properly. I have talked to my provider and they say the entries are entrered correct and I can access the server fine from several different providers in my area (Canada). I have verified/downloaded every single episode using the links on the site and they all worked with no difficulty.

19th August 2002 - posted by StoneCold Skywarp
Cosmetic update today...Changed the pictures on Prowl's Profile entry as I wasn't happy with my previous grabs. Expect many little changes like this over the coming weeks.

13th August 2002 - posted by TFArchive
Episodes server is down until around tomorrow sometime. DNS entries were changed and they may take a day or two to propagate to everyone. As soon as the entries get to you, you will be able to download again. Sorry about this.

And you were wondering why we were quiet....

Once again TFArchive gets another new layout. Many thanks go out to Denyer for the help and inspiration! Whilst still under heavy construction I just couldn't fight the urge to leave this offline any longer. The Japanese section is currently non-existent sadly, though I am aiming to rectify that. Armada and Beast Machines are also both currently un-touched. We like to think that this new layout will make the site easier to navigate and please bear with us as we continue to make changes to the site to increase ease of navigation. There are one or two major new additions including a Beast Wars image gallery, and much more besides!

Episodes Will Live!

Due to enough of a response via donations and clicks the episodes will stay online at least another month. I will be reviewing it again next month. Until then, enjoy the new episodes that will be posted next week :) 21st June 2002 — posted by TFArchive
"That it has come to this..."
It is with deep regret that we announce this will be the last month that episode downloads will be available from this site. Unfortunately despite large amounts of people downloading and huge transfer rates, the neccessary banner clicks and donations have not justified any reason to keep the episodes available on the site. Whilst we provide this to you guys, the transfans of the world, this is a heavy burden on my bank balance, and I cannot afford to loose upto $250 a month. As much as I would like to continue to make the episodes available, without the neccessary banner clicks and donations, this is not possible.

Play 24/7 have made a Region 2 Headmasters DVD available for pre-order. Click for more details
And on behalf of TFArchive, the downloadable episodes have been rotated.

Wow, another update!! Blitzwing's school days are coming to an end, and as a result the profiles are starting to trickle in again. Blitzwing's written profiles for both Prowl and Skywarp.
