A Letter from the Editor
January 15, 2003
and welcome to the zero issue of the TFU.INFO
magazine! It's been a long time comin' putting this site together. Almost
3 years to be exact. And all because I once had to utter in #WiiGii!, "Someone
should make a Transformers site like Yojoe.com."
To which, someone said, "Why don't you try and make it
And in my own stupidity and brashness, believed I could.
Though somehow, I did, sorta.
The first thing in planning this website was that I wanted
it to be more comprehensive than Yo Joe; and when it comes to the layouts
for almost 20 years of Transformers from 5 continents, it's almost impossible
not to be comprehensive.
The figure archive is what I consider the centerpiece of the
site and it is still growing and expanding. HEll, it's far from done, but
close enough wherein I feel confident letting the whole of Transfandom run
rampant amongst it's pages.
Secondly, I did not want to become trapped by only talking
about and archiving Transformers. That's why, in this zero issue (and in
issues to come) you will see many an article devoted to other series, be
it transforming or not. Additionally, don't forget
to vote in our poll, as to which line we should add next to the archive.
We're still recruiting witty, smart writers interested in
penning articles for TFU.INFO Magazine. Do you have an interesting take
on the current realm of transforming toy collecting.
I am also proud to announce the opening of our very own message
board, which I encourage you all to sign up for and use often. (My apologies
for the pop-up ads there, though I suggest you use a browser with pop-up
killing capability like Mozilla or
Opera for optimal performance.)
Lastly, I would like to send my most heartfelt thanks and
gratitude to all the people who helped with
getting this site off the ground, it would not have been possible without
So, now, kick back, click on, and enjoy.
Here's to what the future holds,
Anthony "Tonyfitz" Brucale
