    I've been working on a couple of smaller iPhone checklist apps that are available in the store (Marvel Universe figures, Battle Beasts, etc) and am consider tackling the much much much larger transformers collection. However, I do these apps for free and don't have the time or manpower to put together one of all the transformers toys... is there any possibility folks here would want to help? I would, of course, need permission to use the images from the site as well (forum admins, thoughts?).

    Essentially, I would just need help building the plist/xml file and naming all of the images.

    Please let me know if this seems possible!

    Thanks,
    Zack

    I'd start by PMing "ams" on these boards.
    Think he has very elaborate spreadsheets on the majority of releases.
    I could lend a hand as far as the vintage G1s and G2s are concerned...

    Thanks for the tip. I'll give him a shout. The only information I would need on each figure is:

    Wave (series, etc)
    Name
    Number (if applicable)

    I break it down into an xml file that includes the name of the image as well, and then the app builds it and organizes it.
