We've seen it all. A lot times. Something becomes the latest "hot" thing in Transformers fandom, turning out to be of interest to a surprisingly huge number of fans who instantly want to share their discovery with the rest of the fandom. Unfortunately, none of those fans have bothered to check if it may have already been reported. Sometimes this is somewhat explained, since the front page news or the original thread has ended up on page 2 - and who ever bothers checking out page 2? Of course, nobody ever uses the search function either. Sometimes, this is sheer ignorance, when there are three threads about the same thing on the first page of a forum, and yet some people will still post another thread about it. Sometimes, people see what they think is "news" on another site and will instantly report it to TFW2005, without bothering to check out the news on TFW's own main page first. Sometimes it's just sheer thoughtlessness: If the Transformers Wiki lists information credited to a panel at a convention, the chances that this piece of information hasn't made the headlines at all the big Transformers fansites yet are minimal. This thread is not about making fun of these people. This thread is merely intended to be a collection of past incarnations of this phenomenon. Categories are "news" (which includes errors mistaken for, and reported as, news) and "cool stuff" (which includes, but is not limited to, videos). Here's a few examples: News: Toys'R'Us website depicting the box art of G1 Swerve and a photo of Universe 1.0 Swerve for a listing of Cybertron Swerve. Josh Nizzi's design for ROTF Long Haul, and a fan-made CG model based on it. Third ROTF Arcee bike is named "Flareup". Cool stuff: Dancing Soundwave is the most famous one. This got posted a MILLION times. Simpsons couch gag with Transformers. Transformers on Robot Chicken. Transformers on "Will it blend". "The Rude Awakening of Optimus Prime". Any other examples?
