    I have to agree - considering I haven't been able to spot a news report about the final few Botcon panels on Seibertron yet - including the 25th anni hot shot remake!

    We'll trade ya the news award for the other two, since Seib's is the better design and resource. How's that sound? Sounds fair (and accurate) to me.

    Laughable at best. Should have been a clean sweep for 2005. We'll take 2 years in a row winning 2 of 3.

    I can't find anything on Seibertron. I'm just happy he's not using PlayBoy's website layout anymore.

    I just want to say, as a person who was on ebay when transformers were'nt as expensive. That tfw2005 is the best site out there as far as navigation, design, easiness of use and also the ability to buy and trade. My collection started off with a few g1 one combiners parts. (thats all my mom did'nt throw away) To over 100 in only a few months. Thanks octane for putting me on to this place, and also thanks to the guys that moderate and hear are numerous complaints or fix our mistakes. NO kissin up just real reconizing real. Till all are one

    I don't see the difference between me saying Seibs should have won resource and design vs. you guys saying you should have won news. By what you say, we're all sour grapes who need some humble pie.

    Anyone wanna pass the whipped cream? :lol :

    I went to Seibertron when I first got back into collecting, until I found this site :D 

    Seibertron is cool, but there is no way it can compete with this site other than the number of galleries they have - I will give them that credit, they do have some great galleries. But layout, design, information, news: TFW is by far the best out there.

    seibertron winning best news award is = to a mercy F.

    kinda harsh, i know. but how many times have the news crew at seibertron linked here for their news? huh? huh? granted they give credit to tfw2005 when they do. and c'mon now, home page news- my stuff on ebay. home page news material? really?

    if anything, they should make an award for best gallery. then again, remy has a killer gallery too. excellent galleries yes (and they are excellent). but news award, no way. mercy F i tell you, mercy F.

    anyway just my 2 cents 3 dimes and a quater. hopefully the hammers of justice would spare me any major modding.

    As former News Admin at Seibertron.com I have say I choked on my Coco Pops when I heard Seibs won the News Award. TFW2005 has always been the better site for news and allways will be, hell Seibs lifts most of its news from here. As for design and resource, Seibs has a lot of info, galleries, screencaps and so forth and a flashy (although not particularly user friendly) design, I could see why they might win those two, News? No way, the news over there is in a worse shape now than when i was 'in charge'.

    Yours AK

    I've never visited Seibertron.com, so I can't judge whether or not they deserve this award. But I kinda have the feeling this might have to do with frontpaging auctions and reviews of obviously stolen or fake products.
    I mean, we know FunPub and Hasbro are looking into taking steps against these people but we still advertise it (kinda support it even?). If I was Hasbro, I might be holding a little grudge.

    I don't know, I'm not trying to accuse anyone or place the blame or anything like that. And maybe I'm just saying stupid things. I'm just thinking out loud.

    TFW2005 should have won everything. BTW I would still like to know who yelled "You fail at life!" when those Wiki Nerds won the Battle of the Boards awards. :lol  Maybe TFW2005 didn't win Battle of the Boards, but we should have won an award for the best team spirit. I had a lot of fun and laughs.

    Are you serious? :crazy: 

    When I started looking for news and info on TFs, I came across Seibetron's website. It was hard to find anything there. I noticed that one piece of news that I found was credited to TFW2005.com. So I decided to check the site out and I haven't been to Seibetron.com since.

    This site is truly the best site out there.

    If it's any consolation, I was approached with more "WTF?" from people in a more official sense to Transformers regarding Seibertron's news win than regular members.

    Oh well. Water under the bridge! We'll try again next year.
