What's next for Transformers you ask? The 30th Anniversary continues with more special packs. This wave will feature Skids, Goldfire, Waspinator and Dreadwing. Hasbro has been knocking these bad boys out of the park and fans are digging these comic packs. I know some fans have yet to score the 1st wave but fear not, Amazon has product pages in place for each of these. Click on through for the bio's and official images.
A few days ago I received a nice surprise in the mail in the form of Quakewave. This amazing piece is a 3rd party Transformer but with the attention to detail and overall quality, finding a better could prove futile. From the amazing die cast on his feet and legs to the light up eye and gun arm, Quakewave is a welcome addition to anyone's collection.

Check out the specs and images after the jump.
TFW2005.com has covered Hasbros annual Inestor Day recently. Some interesting points in the presentation Mr. Goldner mentioned that Transformers Brand grew by 2 times even without a movie. Bravo. My Little Pony is the second best brand. Entertainment Driven Toys will have a higher price tag than Non-Entertainment Driven Toys. Hasbro has acquired rights to manufacture Disney Princesses. Chief
Honestly I was taken by surprise with this one. A headmaster head, an IDW inspired Fortress Maximus (really?? How awesome is that!) and more surprises yet to be revealed. I cant wait to see the final images, pre order info and of course pricing, which matters not. The other awesome piece to this is Warden transforms into a head to replace Cerebros on the vintage/ Encore Fort Max. PerfectEffect has nailed this one so definitely keep an eye out for all the remainder information such as price and ordering.
UNCANNY X-MEN #152 December 1981 This is one of the first X-Men comics that I can remember buying, although not the first. That honor goes to the issue before this one which sports a classic "Kitty leaving Xavier's school crying" cover. I remember buying this and taking with me to read while my mom did the laundry at the laundromat. I got other comics as well, including an issue of Adventure Comics, but to save the life of me, I don't recall anything else. SYNOPSIS: Storm is chasing a red sports car driven by the White Queen of the Hellfire Club, Emma Frost, throwing lightning at it, unable to stop it from going off the curvy mountain road. Inside the car, Kitty wakes up and phases out the car door, as Emma tries to grab her, she loses control and goes off the edge of a cliff, crashing and erupting into flames. Storm panics and flies away haphazardly on a gust of wind. Kitty is fine from the crash, and remembers being taken by Storm to Emma Frost's Massachusetts Academy by Storm until she was kidnapped by a panicked Emma Frost. She sees that Emma was thrown clear of the crash and against her baser instincts, decides to rescue her.
