Are you on Google+? Then why not join our new Transformers At The Moon community page which we have created this morning.  The community page, which can be found here, will run along side our dedicated Google+ where you will find copies of the news stories as well as some image galleries of our collection.

We will be looking to add new, and sometimes exclusive, content to both of these social pages, along with our Facebook and Twitter feeds, though the Google+ Community page may eventually replace our own out-dated message board as it will allow us all to share our thoughts, images, videos as well as participate in video Hangouts and Hangouts on Air.

Transformers at the Moon celebrated it's 13th anniversary over the last few days, after officially being online since the end of October 1999.  Back then the internet was a much different place.  Many of the more popular Transformers websites around now didn't exist.  There was no TFW2005, no Seibertron, no TFWiki. Images of Transformers mainly consisted of grainy pictures, standing on tables.  We introduced a concept of photographing our Transformers Toys against a white card background, so the figure showed out more, and we knew which images were ours.  This plain white background became the mainstay of most Transformers photography for the following decade, and even now many sites still use clear white backgrounds - whilst others have moved onto black or diorama sets.

As our site has grown and trailed off over the 13 years, we've been pleased to bring unique features such as our Trademark Database, UK Store Finder and large Transformers toy resource.  Other, less documented, areas of the site include our Beast Wars II Cartoon image gallery.  Cartoon concept art, prototypes and design work and of cause our Lucky Draw Collection and resource.

Though the site is a shadow of it's former glory, in terms of updates and visitors (due to "real life commitments") our passion for the toy line we love, and website which we dedicated so much time to continues.  Our plans for future concepts and features drive us forward, as we look to bring you something unique and exciting.

We hope you choose to stay with us, and recommend looking though the vast resource of information we have here for you to read through and look at.

Back in July we recorded a video tour of our Transformers display which we have dubbed as "The Transformers Museum". Well, we've finally gotten around to recording the narration for the video and have now uploaded it onto YouTube for your viewing pleasure.  You can find it on YouTube where it's titled "Transformers Toy Collection: Transformers Display Room from Transformers At The Moon" or by clicking the plug-in below.  The video is available in 240p,360p,480p and 1080p for those with HD support and a fast internet connection.

The sound-bite at the end is Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and was recorded during the International Junket for the first live-action Transformers film when Moonbug got to interview him for the website.

We don't often produce videos for the website with us speaking, so you may want to turnof the sound if the narration annoys you too much ;) but let us know what you think over on YouTube, Facebook, Google+ or via Twitter.

As you are all probably aware by now I have spent the last 10 months buying a house.  It took 6 months to get to the completion and another 4 months of repairs, decorating and moving, but now I'm 80% unpacked and so I thought I would share a preview of the new dedicated Transformers display room (which has also been dubbed "The Transformers Museum") with you all.

Now, I am still unpacking some of the toys and so the layout in the cabinets it not yet finalised (and there is another cabinet still to do) but you'll get the idea of how things are going to be displayed.  Once everything is out and in the correct place I will take create a full image gallery of "the Transformers museum" as well as the other figures that I also have out on display as well as putting together a video tour, oh yes, it needs a tour ;), but that is another day.  For now you will find one preview image attached to this news story, another preview image on our Facebook page and the third preview image on our Google Plus page, so you'll need to click around a few places to see them all.

Hello!! After almost a month of not having access to the Internet at home, having recently moved, I am glad to announced that as of this afternoon my new home finally has working internet connectivity.  I am truely sorry for the lack of updates on every front over the last few months.  I finalised the deal on my house at the end of January but the renovations that were required to install the central heating, fix the drains, generally sort out the property, pack everything and move has taken some time to come together.  Indeed I am still unpacking figures into their new display cases which will probably go on for another 2-3 weeks.  I also still need to move comics and any other figures I've forgotten about, so the final displays may not be in place until late June or even July.  As you can no doubt imagine this has meant that I've been even busier than my professional life normally keeps me as has my brother, but how that internet access is back working again I will slowly start to catch up with content again.  Moving has given me the chance to look at many of the figures I had forgotten about which has made me even more determined to get back to photographing and reviewing everything to share with the rest of the Transformers fandom.  I've also dug out more original paperwork from the Sunbow production meetings which I will slowly create articles from to share several pieces of information which will probably be new to you all.

Once again I am sorry for the delay and whilst things may be a little slow still whilst I get back upto speed, I hope that I will be able to bring new, fresh and focused content and updates for you all to enjoy. Whilst the website has taken a back seat in my life over the lasy 5-6 years it still plays an important part of who I am as I have met many good friends through this site either directly or indirectly since starting it back in October 1999 and that is something that I am always extremely grateful for.

So please, raise a glass, I'm back on the web and that means Transformers will be back on The Moon!!

After recently moving, and having no internet line - both of which have drammatically affected our work on the site (2 months of work on Steve's house) we should finally be getting the Internet back in around 2 to 3 weeks time.

The good news is that with the extra space we've got easier access to the toys, so hopefully we can get back to filling up the blanks in our toy gallery section.

As you must have noticed the lack of updates to the website over the last 8 months has continued to increase.  This is because I am currently completing moving house into a place I bought at the end of Jan.  Due to this I have limited access to the internet outside of work and during this same period I have been promoted which has bought with it increased responsibilities and working hours.  Sadly something had to give and it has been my free time and hobbies that have taken the brunt.  I am hoping to re-address this once I complete the house move and have a working internet connection, but for now I just wanted to say please bare with me, I've not forgotten about this place, I'm just super-snowed with work and moving but ultimate both will be worth it.
