Michael Bay Not Directing Transformers 5?

Posted on 10-29-2014 at 10:16 PM by Mechafire under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
2833405-bay_EXPLOSION-300x237 IGN has just confirmed that Michael Bay will not be returning to direct Transformers 5.

After going back-and-forth multiple times concerning his directing the Transformers movies, it appears Michael Bay has finally decided not to return, instead opting to direct a Benghazi drama, titled "13 Hours" based on the novel by Mitchell Zuckoff.

The 5th live action Transformers film was officially announced earlier this month at the Hasbro third quarter 2014 earnings conference call, although after the box office success of Age of Extinction many assumed a 5th installment was a certainty.

Who's your choice to fill Michael Bay's spot? Discuss what you think about this revelation after the jump!

Transformers: Legends Game Event - Wreckage

Posted on 10-29-2014 at 02:54 PM by SilverOptimus under Video Games
Transformers-Legends-Wreckage DeNA has announced the next Transformers: Legends event; Wreckage.

Judging by the colours and the theme of the event, it is clear that this is the Halloween episode for this year..

Event Synopsis:
Stranded on the planet Junk, MEGATRON fights for his very existence as the JUNKIONS swarm forth, ready to feast on him. Led by their savage leader, WRECK-GAR, the ravenous beings chase him with a ferocity never before seen by the DECEPTICON leader.

Meanwhile, not too far from the carnage, SLUDGE and SWOOP search Junk for their missing leader, GRIMLOCK. Concerned with the rumors that the natives eat Cybertronians, and despite their skills as warriors, they hurry along, wanting to get off-planet as soon as possible.

While the Dinobots search for GRIMLOCK, and MEGATRON fights for his life, SKYWARP scours the planet for his leader, hoping to find him and prove his loyalty… and hoping that the myths about the planet’s inhabitants aren’t true.

Will the Junkions and their maniacal chief tear MEGATRON to pieces, or will he dominate the landscape and rule them all? Can SLUDGE and SWOOP find their missing leader? Find out on TRANSFORMERS LEGENDS – “WRECKAGE”!


Cards:
  • R5 Skywarp [6] and R6 Megatron [13] available in the Episode Spacebridge.
  • Top Reward Card: R7 Wreck-Gar [3]
  • Advanced Operations: R6 Swoop [7]
  • Special Edition R6 Grimlock [8] and R5 Nemesis Prime [3] available in the Battle Chest and Premium Spacebridge.

Upcoming Takara Releases - Translated Figure King Magazine Details

Posted on 10-28-2014 at 11:15 AM by Mechafire under Japanese Transformers
IMG_1835 TFW2005 members SydneyY and Type-R have both been so gracious as to provide us with a translation of the previously-reported issue of Figure King magazine. The information given here contains lots of fun and interesting factoids, the bulk of it having to do with the fembots and Armor Knight Optimus Prime. To briefly summarize some of what was covered...

• Fembot info:
- Arcee was designed by Hironori Kobayashi (of Masterpiece fame) and Yuki Oshima (of Kiss Players fame).
- The descriptor used for Windblade is an "Oiran" rather than a "Geisha", and also that she was indeed inspired by Nijika from G1 as many had suspected.

• Armor Knight Optimus Prime info:
- Details on his new face-swapping gimmick
- General details on new molding/accessories
- How he's been packaged to mimic the promotional material.

• Other general info:
- Details on Takara's latest promotions
- Upcoming releases
- An interview with Hironori Kobayashi will be featured in the next issue of Figure King magazine.

You can check out the full details after the jump!

RUMOR - Leader Class Ultra Magnus Incoming?

Posted on 10-27-2014 at 07:36 PM by Mechafire under Generations / Classics
IMG_0625_zpsd12e7e57 TFW2005 boards member DecepticusPrime has shared a very intriguing piece of information with us. While scanning through the Leader class Transformers items at the store he works at, he found the AOE Leaders, the 2 upcoming Leader Megatrons, and Leader Thundercracker. This is all, of course, old news. However, upon scanning through, he also found a listing for a new, previously-unknown item - a Leader Class Ultra Magnus.

Take this with a grain of salt for now, but if true, what exactly could it be? Might Hasbro finally be giving us a "complete" Ultra Magnus with full Magnus armor? Will it be G1-based, IDW-based, or something else? Or could it simply be another white redeco of one of the past Leader Optimus Primes?

Whatever the case, if legitimate, there is a good chance we'll be hearing more about it the closer we get to Toy Fair in February.

Feel free to speculate after the jump!
