Transformers MMO -> MMBO -> MMNO

TransformersMenuThe long-gestating, in public beta game has shut down - more surprisingly, this means that it was open. A rare press release announcing a product's end of life has been issued: The Future of Transformers Universe Announcement.

Jagex confirms refunds for the Founder's Pack ($400ish, with a statue) are being issued and the game will go totally dark in January. You should have your refund by January 16, the game will be down by January 31. While word hasn't gotten out yet as to the why, licensing expirations would be my first guess.

Ad: Transformers Price Drop Again at Amazon

AmazonAmazon's prices on toys go on a rollercoaster this time of year - if Amazon proper has them in stop, a lot of them dip to crazy levels. And if they run out? Third-party sellers raise the prices to equally crazy levels.

I'm monitoring Transformers prices as that's where the most action seems to be these days.

Slog in particular has been going down about 40 to 60 cents per day.

Shapeways: Transformers Rung Figure

TransformersMenuVia Shapeways: Transformers Comics Tribute - MTMTE Rung.

The non-transforming, undecorated figure is $45.99 and appears to be part of Super Fan Art or is at least tagged as such. If nothing else it's interesting to see, and probably implies strongly that Hasbro will not be making you an official transforming "ornament" Rung any time soon.

Four Horsemen Ravens Arriving

Rise of the BeastsDuck RavenWhile mine aren't here yet, others are getting lucky. The Source Horsemen forums have a thread am i first? showing off Minotaur the Duck in his packaging after a successful delivery.

It is assumed these are near the point of distribution, as the shipping method used - if memory serves - takes 3-10 business days. And it will take all 10 business days if you're on the other end of the country. Over 700 orders have shipped so far, so it's possible you will get yours before Christmas. For those keeping track, you paid for these on Kickstarter back in August 2013 and the original target date was March 2014. The industry standard for an action figure being conceived until its release is about 18 months, and they took about 16 after starting the campaign. It's not terrible, although I do hope future Kickstarter projects take the delays into account just to manage expectations going into it.

Exclusive to Walmart (as far as I can tell, and not marked as such except on in-store displays) the figure is the first individually packaged Trixie figure ever since her debut in 2010. Is she worth it? Well, without question, she's the best Trixie action figure. Read on and come back Monday for more!

New Power Lords Soon

Power LordsMeet the New LordsVia the Glyos News Dump: Unknown Power Lords Pre-Order Starting Soon.

There's nothing specific other than to say there will be new figures which will allow you to part with some money in the coming one or two weeks. The last new release was shipped quite some time ago, and all figures in this line have been variations on releases from September and October of 2013 so far - so some newness is both expected and welcome.

AmazonAd: Prices are dropping as low as $8 per figure!

The very good Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends have been run again, and stocks are surprisingly cheap for many of the figures. Normally about $20 each, figures start at $8. If you're looking to build Groot, at press time it's a mere $97 for all 6 characters (with the pieces to build Groot.)

Buy them, or don't! At least get the cheap ones.
