Help Us Build the Database / What are these?
October 19, 2018, 09:45:18 AM
I grabbed these at Walmart yesterday. The tags on them all appear to be the same on the back (same UPC) but the fronts have the character name on them. They are vinyl figures, and the copyright stamp on the bottom says 2013. The item # is also the same on all them E2883. There is also a C-015G next to the item number on all 4 that I grabbed.
Help Us Build the Database / 3P - Mech Fans Toys
January 01, 2018, 02:44:32 PM
So, Mech Fans Toys are basically KOs of other 3P items, but upscaled and painted differently. Are we going to add them as a manufacturer?

Example, I have the Dinobots released so far MF-21 through 23 (Swooper, Slagus and Slurdge). They are upscaled KOs of the DX9 Dinobots X20 Skyer (Swoop), X18 Bumper (Slag) and X19 Quaker (Sludge).

This listing should be reserved for the original Cubex release. I think a new manufacturer should be created as BadCube for the new version, as there is no similarity between releases. The release number is the same (OTS-01 Huff), but the box and everything else about it is different from the original.
Help Us Build the Database / WeiJiang Oversize KO's
July 17, 2017, 09:10:46 AM

I assume since these are basically KO's we won't be adding them to the database, but they are retooled to the point of not being direct KO's.

In short, should these be added or not? I ask because I have this guy coming today.

I can't believe I made it this long. Ten Thousand Photos? Holy mackerel. And what figure would be more fitting for this honor than the almighty Megatron?
Feature Requests/Announcements / Change Username?
June 23, 2017, 01:41:11 PM
Is it possible to change our username on here? I changed my username on TFW a while back and have started using the name Spiff-O-Matic elsewhere as well. Including my TF blog,
Help Us Build the Database / Submission queue
June 21, 2017, 05:34:31 PM
I know SoS has been busy at work in the past, so I understand some delay in the queue being approved. But I've had other items come and go in it since submitting the ones that are still there. Is there an issue? Thanks!
So, the recent Mech Planet Soundtrack/Soundboard releases have included an extra tape figure at certain retailers, but I don't know if there's an accurate list of where they are for sure. My question is, how do we list these if we're not sure what the exclusivity is?

For example, my Soundtrack (Soundwave) did not include the clear Laserbeak from Toy Dojo, but I read on TFW that people who ordered from Uncle Billy and perhaps other Asian retailers did receive it.

Same for Soundboard (Soundblaster) I just got from Toy Dojo. It came with HS-04L Lightning Bird (in addition to the Ratbat that comes with this figure), but there was no indication on the box or from the retailer when I ordered that it would include this.

I tried searching "bumblebee" in the top search box on the home page and it brought me to a (admittedly cool looking) 404 page.
Help Us Build the Database / New manufacturer needed

I just got the Mech Planet Soundwave equivalent and need "Mech Planet" added to the manufacturer's list so I can get this one added please.
Help Us Build the Database / Downbeat parts submissions
January 30, 2017, 09:00:32 AM
Last week I swear I submitted at least a figure record for Maketoys Downbeat, but I have nothing in my submission queue and it isn't on the listing. Am I remembering wrong, or was there an issue with my submission?
Help Us Build the Database / Hallmark Itty Bittys
January 24, 2017, 04:59:57 AM
I just grabbed these yesterday and I guess there needs to be a new toyline added for them under Transformers > G1? Similar to the ornaments Hallmark does with the Ornaments toyline.
Help Us Build the Database / Wei Jiang
November 15, 2016, 04:40:23 AM
Not sure if it's been brought up before, but should third parties like Wei Jiang, who are known for what basically boils to to KO's (whether original sized, oversized or undersized) be added? They tend to make many improvements on the original mold and a lot of people consider them superior to Hasbro / Takara releases. I ask because I just received my first figure from the, the oversized Nemesis Evasion Prime, M-01B Commander.
In the past when I've submitted a new pic for a part and assigned the front image, it would appear afterwards immediately without needing approval by an admin. Did this change recently? I'm uploading images for Generation Toys Tyrant model-Megatron ( and it's not showing the images. They have been assigned properly when I go back into edit to double check.
Help Us Build the Database / Swappable Faces
September 13, 2016, 06:00:34 AM
I'm wondering how we should be handling the swappable faces in a figure. For example, Maketoys Despotron comes with 3 additional faces, and I've added those three as accessories. What about the default face the bot comes with out of the box? It makes sense to add that as another accessory, but I never have done this in the past because it's the piece that came installed from the factory. Which is the right way to handle these?
I've gotten my first set and will likely be getting more (from Amazon). Can we get these added?

So I just got mine today, and was wondering if it's something we want pictures of and added?
Help Us Build the Database / Approval in limbo?
June 24, 2016, 11:03:57 AM

I'm assuming this is "under review", but why is this taking so long to approve?
