    If you have a question please post it in Transformers General Discussion, not here. Questions are not news.

    The only time a photo gallery should be posted in the News & Rumors section is if it's a figure that has not been seen in detail. Photo galleries of released items, belong in the Transformers Toys forum of the site.

    Make sure your title describes the news you are reporting. "Hey check this out" doesn't cut it.

    If you are reporting a sighting of a previously unreleased toy please provide photographic proof of the toy with receipt, or a photo of the toy on store shelves.

    Please do not post a new thread everytime a different store puts up a preorder or gets an item in-stock, unless it's the first listing of a toy or of a toy that we haven't seen/heard of before. This includes listings from Hasbro Toy Shop pre-orders and any other vendors.

    Threads made regarding sales at stores (whether brick-and-mortar retail or online stores) are not news unless new information or new items are revealed in the sales posting.

    Any images you have to support your news story can be directly attached to your thread in this forum using the Attach Files function below the text field.

    Please state the original source of the information. You won't be taken seriously if you don't provide proof.

    Don't bump old threads unless you have something important to add.

    If you have a question on why a story was put on the TFW2005 front page, please contact the news poster via PM. Do not publically ask why this news was front-paged. Also, please remember that many of our news staff have been doing this for years and know what is news and what isn't news.

    All 3rd Party Transformers News goes in the 3rd Party Forum. The News and Rumors forum is for Official Transformers and officially licensed Transformers news.

    Thanks and enjoy your stay at TFW2005!

    Before starting a new thread in this News & Rumors forum or tagging a news staff member for potential news credits, please note the following:

    • A video review is not newsworthy if the figure has been shown in-hand before(whether through fans or Hasbro designers). The same goes for images. If the item was seen before in videos and in-hand images, look for an existing thread to post them in rather than creating a new thread. You might not get a news credit so don’t assume nor expect 1 if you’re posting images/videos of an item that was already seen in-hand before.
    • If you see a new video review for something you think is new, check the following for existing threads 1st: Transformers Video Reviews
    • Check here to see if in-hand images and/or videos were already posted and linked to our frontage: Transformer World 2005
    • Also check this forum for existing threads that for in-hand images/videos: Transformers News and Rumors
    • If a new item is in stock or up for preorder, it’s not newsworthy unless it’s something we haven’t seen before(this is aside from sponsor threads that either our site sponsors make themselves or our staff creates)
    • When creating threads for a new retail sighting, check the aforementioned links 1st and try to provide an image of the receipt
    • If a reviewer has a new figure in their possession and posts an ETA for their review, it does not need a dedicated thread here.
    • Whatever issues you may have with reviewers, leave it offsite, do not discuss your issues here. Discuss the toys, not the reviewer.
