    I saw this on Allspark.com and figured I'd post it here.

    Good to see TFs getting exposure like this, it'll help build hype for the movie :)

    That article was a mess. This writer must be begging for work.

    I live in MA and everyone I work with was like "Did you see? your TF's are in the Globe!!!" It was cool. I saved the article. Not the best article, but cool nontheless.

    Is that why the owner of TFArchive got interviewed rather than Jack Hurwitz? :)

    Nice press coverage, despite being rather poorly written. Then again, you don't have your top writer cover a small expose on a current "fad". (I know we don't think it's a fad, but others will see it as such.)

    Sucks TFW2005 was not mentioned, but not as much as it's gonna suck to hunt for clasics now. This will start another wave of collectors probably because they now have proof that other people do it.

    Be nice if the article was a little more accurate. Amusing how kids wern't interested in Beast Wars, yet somehow the line took off so well that it actually saved the brand from doom after G2 died.

    I noticed that little inaccuracy too. Although there's probably a contingent of the fandom that thinks that anyway

    I like how the article ends. "Batman Begins - yes. Superman Returns - ehhh, not so much."
