Update: Fight! Super Robot Lifeform 2010 and Headmasters

Has it really been a month since my last update? Well with my workload, family life and launching the Facebook page for the site I guess I can't say I'm all that surprised it's been so long. I've got some more submissions to get added to the various sections of the site, but these were kind dropped into my lap this afternoon while I was watching football.

heroic_decepticon is fairly well known in many Transformers collecting circles, and I've had the pleasure of dealing with him on many occasions in the past...including a deal for a new MIB vintage Japanese G1 figure for my own collection! I noticed many of the figures he had offered up for sale had their tech spec cards included. I kindly asked for a few scans, but that just wasn't logistically possible. However a few iPhone pictures later and I have a lot of new additions for the Fight! Super Robot Lifeform 2010 and Headmasters sections.

I am very grateful for heroic_decepticon's submissions today, however I still may try to upgrade these pictures with higher resolution images later on down the road. But for now enjoy the latest addition to the database.

I have no idea why Cyclonus, Scourge and Rodimus all share the same striped background when some of the cards before them also used to normal grid design. Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

I know a lot of names were changed when the toys made their way East courtesy of Hasbro. Some of the names I'm glad Hasbro changed, while others I prefer the original name. Here is one example where I think the Hasbro name, 'Freeway' fits the character/toy a little better than the Takara name. Do you agree?
