    OK, so the BWR-01 Golden Disc has an unlock-code screen showing sihlohettes of the US version BW 10th Anniversary Primal and Megatron. This code was supposed to be in Figure King in February, apparantly, on the Beast Wars page. So where is it? No one seems to ahve reported it at *all*, not even FantoFan, who don't even mention the magazine on their site.

    Here's what the Japanese says, according to a translation:
    Access the information of Beast Wars Reborn!
    Secret Images of under developing new item from Beast Wars Reborn!
    New Mold new Beast soldier from Beast Wars 10th anniversary,get password from No.97 2006 Feb Figure King Beast Wars page.

    So? Anyone? What happened to the passcode? Why didn't any site report it?

    Yeah, no kdding. FTF is NOT the only game in town that has access to these magazines. I am completely amazed that none of the Japanese members (I KNOW we have some here...) bothered to report it either.

    Besides, I dunno why Fantofan wants to be stingy with *this*. I mean, it's not like they don't pretty much COMPLETELY give out every meaningful picture and news tidbit from all those mags, anyway. Why would they be shy about *this* tidbit?

    You can post the code here. I don't think anyone will really care.

    Seeing as we're talking about a nearly month-old, off the rack (most likely) magazine from an entire other country...yes, I doubt anyone will mind.

    I wanted to verify it because I only picked up the code from a message board. I myself don't have the set or the magazine. That's why I asked for a PM. And I get this instead? You can just forward your post to FTF then.

    True. You could have found a copy of the mag at a bookstore which sells Japanese magazines.

    Wait, what? Why does this upset you? I really don't think anyone here is going to attack you if the code you have isn't actually the right one. I can't be the only one who's been waiting to see what the code actually reveals with their own eyes. If anything, I wouldimagine you'd at least be thanked for trying and for making your best knowledge on the matter public.

    I still stand by my point that FTF witholding this code when they give us practically everything else of any import from all these magazines monthly on their site for *free* makes no sense. They're welcome to present a viewpoint otherwise and say why they feel that way, seeing as I'm sure I've seen at least one of them post on these boards. No one is being attacked for their choices here, though - the intent is to make information available to the fandom, which is what this site *does*, as does F2F.


    Right, because I can just stroll into Borders or Waldenbooks and pick up current Japanese magazines in a *language I can't read anyways*, which may well be important to determining exactly where to find said code on the page in question, for all I know. There's such an abundance of those import bookstores in a city with no Chinatown, Japantown or other similar ethnic enclaves to host those shops. Not everyone has the easy access that can be gotten by living in, say, San Francisco or New York.

    I'm lucky I know where to buy Pocky without paying comic shop markup, but my options are limited to food and bootleg video tapes.

    Hmmm...yeah I shouldn't have been so upset. I don't know why, I just felt you were being a bit aggressive.
    Reading your post I feel dumb. My apologies.

    As for the bookshop...even we have a bookshop here who does a mail/phone order so you might want to give it a try one day, though it's possibly cheaper buying from FTF.

    All right then, what the heck the code is
    (You'd never guess this one)
    beastwars 10th anniversary
    I am not sure if there should be spaces. And please post here if it worked or not.

    edit; I guess what I want to say about FTF is, he doesn't have to give out everything, if he chooses to save something for his paying customers (I mean the people who actually buy the mag from the site), we shouldn't be attacking him for that.
    We are relying on his grace, right? For many of the fans who don't have access to Japanese magazines or unable to read the contents (like you said so yourself), FTF is the only source.

    According to my source, the spaces in "beastwars 10th anniversary" are needed.

    Yo thanks for the code Syd, I just checked it out. Nothing special, just some grey pics of Hasbro's anniversary figures, I believe a screencap of it was posted somewhere.

    Thank you, too, MoP :D  That makes sense, as Takara is running a competition for BWR buyers. The prize is a set of wave 1 10th Anniversary figures.

    That's cool. Although I should have said grey pics of Hasbro's anniversary Optimus and Megatron toys. :redface2:

    You can read japanese right Syd? If I took a screencap you think you could translate it?

    Well, like I said, I'm not attacking anyone for their choices here. It just seems abnormal practice for them, is all.

    Thanks for the code guys. I will have to check it out tonight (although it doesn't look like it's all that, but I just have to see it for myself :p )
