im reporting that all our local toy stores had just starting to restock lots of TF movie toys and Im happy to see it, and it seems that its an early Christmas to all TF fans. Too bad that I just bought a new toy last week and forgot to bring lots of cash to buy leader class toys. at the end of the video i'm shamelessly tried to activate that cyberstomping bumble bee toy ahhaahhaa

BOYS Top 10 Toy Wish list

1. Transformers

2. Video Games

4. Cars (generic)

5. Spider-Man

6. LEGOs

7. Thomas the Tank Engine

8. Xbox 360

9. Elmo

According to Reuters' Barbie rules girls' wish-lists but boys go high-tech

NEW YORK (Reuters Life!) - Barbie has held onto her crown as queen of girls' holiday wish lists for the fifth year but boys are going more high-tech, according to a poll of must-have toys.

The poll of 7,982 U.S. consumers by the company BIGresearch showed Barbie remained the most sought after toy for girls, with the rival Bratz dolls in second place, generic dolls in third place followed by Dora the Explorer and Disney Princess.

But for boys there was a bit of a shake-up in the annual list with last year's favorite, TMX Elmo, losing out to Transformers, the autobots made popular by the movie of the same name.

Transformers are now making a big hit and even that Christmas is coming, toy shelves of all toy store in Manila are now beginning to restock. Just like yesterday, Tons of Barricade and Bumble Bee pop outs last Wednesday and fans went to their nearest toy store just to grab some and complete their collection. I really believe that the Transformers toy will be the number 1 top wish list for boys and adults, One from the local toy store attendant said "Mommies are now looking and asking for Transformers toys for their kids, and now they ask where to find more of the Leader Class and Voyager class toys."

Transfomers toys attract boys because of its hi-tech design and it is one of the most treasured toy of all time. As an adult during I write these, Transformers are still one of my child hood wish list and now I fully understand today why these transforming vehicles to robots are one best seller and make kids go hyper everytime they see a robot.

Having 2 toys for a price of one is a great deal for parents. And kids can play the toy either in robot form or in their vehicle alternate mode. But these toys are not suitable for a very young age like 6 yrs old below, because projectile weapons are harmful to them, but for a responsible buyer and a parent, it will be better to take out the projectile and keep it away from them. Even me I used to remove the projectile weapons and keep it in my box, because sometimes people like to play my toys and unaware of the projectile thing popping out from their weapons.

"Christmas for me is early, just bought lots of new Transformers toys and other toy lines." Mark Cerbo, Transformers Philippines founder told me that last night.

What about you ?
What's your top 10 toy wish list ?


The Real Bumblebee Sighted.

1.22.2007 - This past weekend after seeing Beowulf on IMAX I thought about going to the last day of this year's Auto Salon 2007 held at the newly built SMX Convention Center.

The venue was held at all four halls at the ground floor of the convention center. Attracting visitors generating a buzz, that this is one of most festive car shows this year.

Most notably what was the most surprising sight of that day was seeing a reall life Bumblebee classic camaro. The one depicted in this year's hottest movie by Michael Bay.

Parked in the far corner of the convention center away from the lights & glamor of the center stage. This `78 Camaro doesn't need any introduction.


Transformers Movie Blackout Bootleg

reported by : malkeig

I have here a good imitation of Blackout. The differences are the coloring, no small scorponok, and no push thing to rotate the rotor. The way they transform is almost similar. so if you are low on budget but like to have a blackout transformer, then you can get this as an alternative.

This is the original toy.

This is the Blackout imitation.

Here is what box looks like:

Insights on Transformers:A Good Example Of Teamwork

posted by Vince

Though I am a fan, I can't afford to watch the movie in cinema either because of no budget or time doesn't permit me. I got to watch it last night. I'm not making a review but I'm drawing out my insights from the Transformers.

Transformers is one good example of a teamwork specifically the Autobots. They are balanced, key players that is crucial in any kind of team.Allow me to evaluate each of them.

Optimus Prime:The leader. He is an ideal leader in any group. He shows compassion like a parent and leads the group with dignity.He is not the leader who bosses around like some leaders.Here's a comparison on bosses and leaders. "The boss says 'do it', the leader says 'let's do it'."

Jazz:A loyal follower.An Autobot who follows duty and willing to sacrifice his life for the cause. Never questions his leader because he trust his leader's judgment.

Ironhide.The brave one.He may be trigger-happy but he shows courage in battle which is an asset to the team.

Ratchet.The counselor:Provides advise to fellow teammates.The conscience of the team which is why an ambulance or any rescue vehicle suits him.

Bumblebee:The bestfriend.Friendship is essential to any type of team.It boost up morale to the team.

TF Toy Review: TFTM Game Longarm

review by Mark Cerbo aka magnusjam

Name: MA-15 Longarm
Series: The Movie
Packaging: Re-seal able Card
Release: 2007
Manufactured By: Takara
Variations: Longarm (Hasbro, 2007)
Accessories: Instruction Manual (In Japanese), TakaraTomy Product Catalog, Orange Translucent Missile
Notes: Japanese version slight difference how they sealed the packaging.

Toy Review by: MagnusJam


Longarm did not appear in the movie in robot mode, but clearly he was the tow truck that Mikaela drove when Bumblebee was severely injured and could not walk. Basically Longarm is based in The Transformers The Game released to all platforms.

Vehicle Mode:


Disguised as a tow truck in his alternate mode. The vehicle resembles (loosely) Chevrolet Silverado pickup. Colored white with blue flame on the front hood. Has a black grille painted with detailed headlights.


A description of Orson's Towing in red lettering. There is also a small Autobot insignia on both side of the quarter panels. An amber orange light bar sits on top of the roof. A functional wrecker hook that can swing up and down. A detailed wrecker boom has marginal lift of 15 degrees.


The same quality of plastic used similar to Payload as you notice the wrecker bed with the steel plate look. A un-even rear part in alternate mode doesn't seem to sync preferring one side or the other. Basically sometimes a bit frustrating to even both parts together.


When it comes to scale side by side with the Camaro Concept (Bumblebee) its out of scale as a tow truck this was supposed to be a bit bigger. The wrecker boom can tow selected Autobot cars not only from The Movie toyline, but previous TF series as well.


Longarm has a bit of challenge when transforming the figure. But the difficulty is mostly focused on the upper body. What makes it to have a minor difficulty basically lies in his arms once you position them leveled to his shoulders. Entirely its a neat transformation without an automorph ability.

Robot Mode:

The head looks like a ski mask from Friday the 13th horror film mostly painted in white with black outlining. An Autobot insignia on his forehead, and has light piping orange eyes. Design on his chest mostly covered in steel plate.


Minimal orange paint on his thighs mostly retains his white color from his alternate mode. The wrecker assembly becomes a huge gun with firing orange missile, which is pinned to his right hand.


Well articulated joints to elbow and arms which is ball jointed same with his head. A bit of frustration is his huge rifle, which is permanently attached to his right hand to avoid losing it. The feet design what makes it more playable for an action pose.


So far best non-movie figure around with decent paint job. Menacing face added to that the light piping is orange tailored to his light bar and missile. Articulation and one scary look what makes this figure sought after by the fans who played the game.


Overall he could have been one of the perfect, though slight un-even parts when transforming to his vehicle form makes it rather a bit frustrating.

The Score:

Skill Level: 3
Vehicle Mode: 4
Robot Mode: 4
Gimmicks: 5

Overall: 4 out of 5 Robot Points

Special thanks to...

Blitzwing of who inspired me to review this figure for the local Transfans after his.
