The New Jersey Collectors Convention is proud to announce that Boss Fight Studio will be attending the August 17th, 2014 NJCC toy show! Boss Fight is comprised of several former Hasbro designers and a sculptor who all worked on fan-favorite action figure lines like Transformers, G.I. Joe, Star Wars and Marvel Universe. Currently Boss Fight Studio's is working on their first Kick Starter for Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S.?
What is Boss Fight Studio's and Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S.?
Highly Articulated - We believe that action figures are meant to be played with. If it doesn't move, then it's a statue. That's why Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. figures are designed with poseability as a priority. Our 4" base figure features at least 17 points of articulation, all with an excellent range of motion.

Hot off the heels of the rarely seen unreleased G2 Stunticon set
that dropped last week, eBay member z75sales has some more unreleased G2 figures up for grabs. This time, we see a charity auction for G2 Autojetter and Autolauncher
. These molds eventually made their way out in future lines, but were never released as they are here.
On top of these, there are also individual auctions for an unreleased G2 Jazz Laser Cycle
on-card, and a G2 Breakdown
from the Stunticon set, but by itself and on-card.
Check out multiple images for each of those auctions by hitting the links above! If you're bidding on these uber-rare items, good luck!Read Replies (0)

Earlier today, Transformers movie score composer Steve Jablonsky updated his Facebook page
with the following message regarding the Age of Extinction Score:Wow, it looks like a lot of you went to see Transformers this weekend Thank you so much for all the love and support. I really appreciate all of the messages.
We have prepared a little score teaser, kind of an appetizer while we finalize the album. Keep an eye on iTunes this week, it should be appearing very soon, or as soon as iTunes decides to go live with it.
Shortly thereafter, Itunes went live with four tracks from the upcoming album
. Check out "Hunted", "Lockdown", "Autobots Reunited" and "Tessa" and sound off on the 2005 boards!Read Replies (0)

In a recent interview with Huffington post writer of Transformers: Age of Extinction, Ehren Kruger, talked about the creative process that goes into making a Transformers movie.
Over the course of the interview Kruger - who also wrote Transformers: Dark of the Moon and co-wrote Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - explains some of the decisions that were made in the creation of Age of Extinction, such as the decision to use an older human lead with Mark Wahlberg.
The key factor that a lot of online news outlets have homed in on, though, is the one thread that director Michael Bay has repeatedly said "no" to when it has been pitched by Ehren Kruger, which is the use of the planet-sized and planet-eating baddie Unicron. Unicron, while he's been talked about, has been put back into the toybox because he's just too big to do until they can find the right story - or a way to make him make sense. Given how other live-action projects have struggled with giant-sized planet-eaters - we're looking at you, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer - this might not be a bad call. Click here to check out the full interview on Huffington Post
, which gives a great insight into the creative process behind the Transformers movies and also a good view into the role Michael Bay plays in the whole thing.Read Replies (0)
