    Awesome! It's always great to have insight from folks who are tied to official franchise happenings.

    I am working to maintain a list of TF merchandise coming out in 2007. If you have anything you'd like to share in regard to your project, please shoot me a PM. Thanks!

    Hi, Tom! I've been following your career for a while now--I LOVE the stuff you've done for Star Wars and I really can't wait to see what you come up with for TF. Quick question, if you have the time: What do you think of the Star Wars/Transformers line? Thanks!

    1. You can call me Tom.

    2. I haven't bought any of the Transformers/Star Wars toys since I kind of stick to Master Replicas, Sideshow and Gentle Giant stuff. But I think it's some pretty cool stuff.

    3. Honestly, I rely on spy sites for a lot of my reference. we've been provided with very little in terms of reference to the film. It seriously under lock and key. I was 2 feet from the door they're working on the effects at ILM about a month ago and had we tried to enter, I'm told they have Megatron guarding the inside of the door.
    ((I can tell you I heard from a good friend that the effects are probably the best ILM has ever done))

    It's kind of been a pain, but it's not Topps' fault by any means. I've been using what they have been able to provide, similar to a lot of material found online. Screen caps from trailers and spy reports for my work on the cards.

    4. Sketch Cards: It's basically a chase card. Topps, Inkworks, Rittenhouse and other companies do these now and have been for the last 5-7 years. they get a group of artists to do sketches based on the said material and they're randomly inserted into packs.

    5. Has anyone seen this: PRIME SPEAKS!
