CONS 2017 - To the Nines!
On October 8 the ninth annual CONS took place, for the ninth year in a row we had a German Transformers Fan Convention and Ö ehÖ ninth times the charm? No, letís try that again. We Ö eh Ö nine time World Heavyweight Champions? Wooo!? No, doesnít really fit, either. Damn, there are no good wordplays with nine. And not even our attendance number was willing to lend a hand here. We had 648 visitors. Okay, itís a new record, again, but is there a nine in there? No, there isnít!
The world lost a great guy on Monday. Karl-Heinz Hechler, called Kalli, wasn't simply my father-in-law, he was also a great guy. When we needed help, he was always there, never complaining, always funny, always loving. He was also my wingman for two CONS, despite not having any interest in Transformers himself. Farewell, Kalli! Until we meet again some day.
10/11/2016 - C.O.N.S. VIII - The Report
CONS 2016 - To Infinity and Beyond
Do you know how hard this is? No, Iím not talking about organizing a Transformers Fan Convention in Germany. Weíve done that eight times, we know how it works by now. No, Iím talking about writing a report about the CONS for the eight time. Here I am, sitting in front of a blank piece of paper (digitally speaking) and need to find a way to compress a day full of fun, excitement, and passion into a few paragraphs and all without repeating myself. This is starting to become a real challenge, people! But I accept it. Have a Sideswipe!
I've created a new website connected to Transformers Universe called Rex Machina - The TFU Blog, where I will publish various articles, rants, and other stuff that is not connected to toy reviewing or toy galleries. Click the picture to the left to see what I've come up with so far.

CONS 2015 - The Seven Year Itch
According to popular psychology the seventh year is something like the make-it or break-it point of a marriage or relationship. The year in which a couple have either adapted to each other so well they can go the distance, or separate because they can no longer stand each other. Whether or not this phenomenon can easily be adapted to the organizing of a Transformers Fan Convention has yet to be scientifically researched, I believe, but there are some indicators that the convention business might show certain similarities here.
03/19/2015 - New Feature on TFU: Accessories listings and ID Guide
I've been meaning to extend the database on TFU for quite some time now to encompass not just figures, but accessories, too. And now the Beta-Version is online. On a figure's Info-Page you can see which accessories are included, while the ID Guide now has an additional search feature to identify parts.
Now the big BUT: the software part is done and works (unless someone finds some bugs), but now the hard part commences: actually filling up this new database. So far I've included about 80 accessory pieces for figures like Generation Arcee and Chromia, G1 Jetfire and Roadbuster, plus some others. Naturally that's only a very, very small part of the whole. Which is why I'm asking for assistance. Pictures of figures are easy to find, but pics of individual accessory parts? Not so much.
If you'd like to help me by taking pics of accessories, please follow a few simple guidelines:
- Use a white background, such as a white piece of paper
- Photograph the pics individually, unless you have multiple identical items (such as a figure having six identical missiles wi...
Ten years ago, on January 6, 2005, I registered the domain name transformers-universe.com. Ten years, still going strong.
11/22/2014 - New TFU Feature: Users rate toys
The Beta-Version of our newest feature is now online. Now you, the TFU users, can rate the toys as well (i.e. here), independent of the reviews we do here. Let other users know what you think of a particular figure. We're still in the Beta-test phase, so the layout may change and additional features will be appear, but we're starting now.

Didn't think I'd like this game, but Benson Yee has summed it up perfectly. Recommend you read his review of the game and then give it a try as well.
