    ===============================================================
    1) Update on designer position
    ===============================================================
    We would like to thank everyone who took the time to apply for the position. There is so much talent it makes it a difficult decision to for us to narrow it down to just one. We have received a large amount of applications and will be reviewing them all and sending responses this week.

    ===============================================================
    2) Classics Starscream Coronation Set - resized renderings up!
    ===============================================================
    Updated renderings are now available of the upcoming Henkei Classics Starscream Coronation Set. The fans spoke and the voices were heard! The crown is now more proportionately sized as are the null ray blasters. There are also a few new surprises with this set, but we won't let the new details until closer to the release...however we will let on that this set will definitely be worth it. Also keep in mind on the final piece some compromises may need to be made in terms of the size to keep the pieces from becoming too fragile or easy to break. Therefore the manufacturer will make these as close as possible to scale, but without causing quality issues which can happen if the pieces are too small as they do not want to disappoint customers with the final product.

    3) Justitoys WST Military Operations Commander - Box art
    ===============================================================
    Justitoys has updated us with a teaser photo of the upcoming WST Communications Liaison box art! The box art looks great and in-line with the WST series, this piece will also include a fist for the G1 Bruticus Combiner that allows him to hold this WST figure. WST Military Operations Commander and WST Communications Liaison are two new figures in the WST series, available for preorder!

    4) Transformers Generations Clear Mirage/Ligier now instock!
    ===============================================================
    The highly anticipated Transformers Generations Vol 1 Clear Electro Disruptor Mirage/Ligier is now instock! Clear Mirage/Ligier was a mail order exclusive, available only with purchase of the Transformers Generations 1 book. TFsource has a limited amount of pieces remaining for purchase, likely we will not be able to restock this piece so once they're gone they're all gone!

    Maybe they just haven't updated the pics yet, but the crown doesn't look any smaller to me.

    Now I want to know what the other Coronation surprises there would be. I hope it's not something like colourful packaging or comic, but rather something that can be used with the toy.

    Unless the "surprises" are really amazing, I still can't justify spending $20 (+ shipping) on that coronation set.

    Maybe it's just me, but I didn't think the blasters were too big. Good thing the crown is getting smaller, but I have a feeling it'll still be too big. I'm curious as to what the " suprises" are, cause it's gonna have to be good to justify 20 bucks for this set.

    The jury's out on this one until final product shots, or even someone posting a review... *cough*Peaugh*cough* :wink: . Then I think I could justify having my Henkei SS looking pimp for $20

    Plus it would go with the custom galvatron, from my voyager E. Megatron, I plan on starting any day now. Yep any day now...
