Toys:About 3 years ago I got on a TF toy buying spree and bought as many Cybertron and Titanium toys as I could find. I took pictures of all the boxes and uploaded them to the site and just forgot to post them. I haven't opened any of these toys so I can't upload any pics of the toys themselves but the boxes/cards a pretty cool to look at. I have added my page to the Toy Collections page in our Fandom section where a few others have profiles, Check them out if you're interested and if you have a toy collection (doesn't have to be TF's) you want to showcase/showoff feel free to let us know and we would be happy to add it.

Site Updates: Sorry folks, but the forum is still down, all attempts to get it working haven't worked thus far. I'm restoring a backup from Oct 2nd which I tested on the server before the switchover yesterday so I'm hoping it will work. I will do my best to keep you posted. Thanks

Site Updates:If you are reading this then you are on the new server. The forum is in the process of being imported, it should be done soon. Until then, enjoy our other sections of the site. Thanks.
- Okay, Import is done but forum is not working properly, I'm trying to fix it so bare with me a little longer. Thanks - Database is corrupt and vbulletin support hasn't been able to help, I'm going to have re-import the database again, it took over 90 minutes this morning so it will be a while before it is done. I'm sorry for the delays, the forum will be back online as soon as possible.

Also up for pre-order are the first two volumes of the excellent X-Men series from the 90's, X-Men, Volume 1 and X-Men, Volume 2.
