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.

Well folks, another Christmas is upon us. No major updates this year, unfortunately the work we're doing has overrun, guess sometimes we're just too ambitious! However, SantaWarp does have a present! For the forseeable future TFArchive will be pop-up free! That's right, no more pop-ups! We still ask that you click on the banner ads occasionally just so we know you care. Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to all our visitors!

Sorry folks, I ran into a slight problem with the import, but I think I have corrected the problem and am trying the import again. If it doesn't work this time I will turn the old board back online until I can sort this out. Sorry about this.

Ok folks, I hate to say it but it is time for another server move. Tonight I will be moving the site and board to the new server. The board will be available at a temp URL until the domain fully transfers over.

A slew of Armada! Well, four great reviews added today! Thanks go out to Sir Auros for his Tidal Wave review, Bombshell for his Minicon Air Military Team review, Shrapnel Clone for his Minicon Street Action Team review, and last but not least Shadowbane Prime for his viewpoint on the ruthless Sideways! I could use a little help if you have screenshots of any of the characthers from the show, for the toy review page. Just shoot them over to my email :) Thanks guys for the response and pickup on the Toy Review submissions, I still have G1 and BW reviews that need to go up, but I thought everyone would enjoy reading about Armada. ;)

Thanks to all the voters on the latest poll that made their voices heard and decided that the Dinobots should be the next TFs immortalised with their own seperate TF Profiles. Grimlock is already available online and Snarl, Slag, Sludge and Swoop will all be following very soon. Keep an eye out on the poll (just under the news headlines) for your chance to vote for the next Profiles.

Bombshell's review of Armada Space Team is up, giving a new perspective of a cool Minicon team. I have been working hella hours lately guys, so I am going to update the toy reviews as often as I can. I am also working on a new format for submitting toy reviews, which will make it a lot easier for transfans to do reviews. :)
