Small update to toy reviews today: something from a while back, something highly sought after, and something you've never heard of before.
Toys: Movie (2007): Bumblebee-2008 (Deluxe), Binaltech: Kiss Autotrooper, Other Merchandise: Fred the Gun.
And a much bigger update to something else: the first visible sign that the Creative/Fandom section lives! The first step in getting it back on track is the new approach to kitbash and custom galleries. It's much easier to add them now, so if you've got some work you want showcased to a larger audience, stop by the kitbash forum. First galleries are from Superquad7, who has been a great guinea pig in the process :-)
Creative - Kitbashes: Alt Billboard by superquad7, Alt Overcharge by superquad7, Alt Soundblaster by superquad7.

With the Quintessons defeated on Cyberton, the Transformers have returned to their homeworld. But peace is not on the agenda. The war for territory rages on, Quintesson survivors terrorise conscientious objectors, and the shadowy Space Mafia works all sides of the conflict. Which side are you on? Join the battle at the TFArchive RPG!

Toys: I AM SO ON TOP OF THINGS. Today we have another movie toy review, and a thorough review of a Classics Minicon team. I've also gone through the previous movie toy review and added the scales for: Ironhide, Optimus Prime, Brawl, Bumblebee, Bonecrusher, and Ratchet (thanks to poster Angus for the help!). The Transformers movie has its 'proper' debut tomorrow (even though it's showing since Monday), so allow me to welcome all you new old fans who are probably searching for robot-related info :-).

Comics: Thanks to Inflatable Dalek, the Marvel issue guide has been brought up-to-date with reprint details. In the Japanese section, Synapse of Transformers Hispanos sent us some interesting Kana cards featuring Masterforce characters, plus fact files on Beast Wars II and BW Neo... they aren't translated, but there's some very nice art.
Fandom: TFVanguard has been hard at work on a lot of Transformers avatars/icons, which you can find here (including an equally large number of South Park -styled ones, and a batch themed of characters from the 2007 Transformers Movie. Plenty of pixelly goodness to look through.
Toys: Nevermore is back to health and has updated his checklists for Titaniums, Collectors' Club/BotCon exclusives, Beast Wars reissues, Alternators/Binaltech and Sports/Music Label. "Encore" Takara line reissue details have been added into the existing reissues list.
...And that's it from me for a while. I'll be back in September. Take care of yourselves, and have a good movie. Totally unrelated and off-topic, if you like indie rock, give this freebie album download by a British band a try... I'm hoping it's going to keep me sane on a very long coach journey...

For my first "real" update in the better part of, what seems like, a lifetime I'd like to officially open our 2007 Transformers Movie hub.
