30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 1999

Posted on 04-23-2014 at 12:00 PM by Sol Fury under Beast Wars
1999 1999 was the fifteenth anniversary of the Transformers brand, an occasion that went largely unmarked save for a recognition at Botcon 1999 (which was also the fifth anniversary of Botcon). Beast Wars reached its climax, concluding with a finale written by long time Transformers comics scribe Simon Furman, and the toyline carried on and developed the Transmetals theme with Transmetal 2s. Japan meanwhile got a double-whammy of new series this year with a dub of Beast Wars seasons 2 and 3 as “Beast Wars Metals” as well as the Japan-only series Beast Wars Neo, which had its own toyline populated almost exclusively with new and Japan-only toys.

Age Of Extinction Junkheap Revealed

10157412_634906209912910_7466703123670302326_n Coming via the official Transformers Facebook page, we have a really fun and downright cool reveal by Hasbro. In celebration of Earth Day, Hasbro has partnered with Waste Management to release the exclusive Decepticon Junkheap.

Fans might recognize this figure from the background of the third live action film Dark of the Moon when the Decepticons space-bridged to Earth for their final attack. Many collectors have often said how cool it would be to have a design of the garbage truck character and now we'll have it!

Junkheap will be a part of the Power Battler toy line and will be released this fall.

Closer Look at the Samsung UHD TV Footage for Transformers 4 Age of Extinction

Posted on 04-21-2014 at 04:17 PM by TunaKaan under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
480E6B02-7BE6-4C28-AAF8-BF418CA46C8D Surely most of you remember the recent Transformers 4 Age of Extinction footage which was shown on the new Samsung Curved Ultra HD TVs to promote the movie, the product and the new 4K format.

2005 Boards member Bariprime and I learned that they showcase the TV with the footage at a shopping mall, near to both of us. Bariprime made it there Sunday afternoon and took three wonderful videos of all the screens. Sadly, when I got there next day, there was no booth at all, I was only couple of hours late. But at least I was lucky enough to find only one screen that showcase the footage but slightly shorter.

Check out all of the videos after the jump. We missed a couple of important shots like the mysterious helicopter bot and the first look at Hound. But you guys should search for it too, Samsung is really promoting their new TV everywhere. And 4K shots look absolutely stunning! Be sure to follow TFW as we brings you the best news, as it happens.

Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark Walmart Exclusive Stinger Pre-Order Bonus

Posted on 04-21-2014 at 04:00 PM by Mechafire under Video Games
avatar73896_69 TFW2005 boards member Fox13 has pointed out to us that Wamart.com's pre-order page for Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark has updated with information saying that you will receive Stinger as a pre-order bonus. It is apparently only at Walmart, so you'll have to purchase the game there if you want him.

But, if you're unable to buy from Walmart, going by past events, there is a possibility that Stinger will be made DLC later on.

There's no word yet if any other retailers will have exclusive pre-order bonuses for the game, so keep an eye on TFW2005 to see if any others pop up.

Botcon 2014 Exclusive Ginrai (Fiery Classics Optimus Prime!) Revealed

Posted on 04-21-2014 at 12:23 PM by Sol Fury under Conventions
27433235d1398098580-botcon-2014-fire-guts-god-ginrai-ginraibotweb Botcon have announced the fifth member of their convention boxed set today and it is an impressive piece indeed. The fifth member of the set is Ginrai, a fiery red and orange redeco of the venerable Classics Optimus Prime figure.

Ginrai is the second Cybertronian Knight in the boxed set, and by way of an alternate wrist transformation is shown here holding his windvane as a shield - the windvane being adorned with the new symbol of the Cybertronian Knights.

The toy's deco is based on the "Fire Guts" Ginrai featured in the 1988 Japanese series, Transformers Chojin (Super God) Masterforce, which in that series was the final attack of the Godmaster, Super Ginrai and his powered up form God Ginrai. An E-Hobby exclusive depicting the attack was released in the early 2000s, which is where this deco takes its cues from.

With the reveal of Ginrai the five figures in this year's Botcon boxed set are known, and they are:

Ginrai from Classics Optimus Prime
Devcon from Generations Scourge, with a new head
Scorponok from Energon Scorponok, retooled to use a remolded Encore Spike as his Headmaster
Ferak from Universe Cyclonus
Cannonball from Prime Ratchet, with a new head


Botcon 2014 is being held over the weekend of June 19 - 22 in Pasadena, California. Visit the Botcon homepage for more information on the convention, the official 30th anniversary of Transformers convention and also the 20th anniversary Botcon!

The toys developed and became more complex, dropping some elements such as battlemasks and flip-changers, but also bringing back limited triple changing and combiners. Transformers returned to Japan once again with “Beast Wars: Super Robot Lifeform Transformer”, both as a toyline and also for the first time in seven years, a cartoon (albeit a dub of Mainframe’s work heavy on adlibbing). Amid all of this, the first Botcon Japan was held, and Kenner experimented with bringing back vehicle Transformers with the Machine Wars…

Hasbro Official Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction Website Update - Info, Images, Games And More

Posted on 04-21-2014 at 11:58 AM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
Transformers-Toys-Games-Videos--Action-Figures-_-Construct-Bots-_-Hasbro Hasbro has updated their Official Transformers Toy Website with a new look and content to market their upcoming toyline for Transformers: Age Of Extinction.

The site gives us a very detailed look at the new simpler transformation.

If you visit the Games menu you'll find some neat little Flash games featuring the characters from the movie; including Lockdown, Bumblebee, Drift and Grimlock .
"Energon Rally" features a side-scrolling Temple Run type of gameplay while "Feed Grimlock" features Kre-O toys where you… well, feed Vehicons to Grimlock (This is a game for kids!?!) in an Angry Birds style gameplay. Construct-bots game has been updated with AOE parts and will allow you to create your own Grimlockdown.

Toys menu contains info and images of AOE Toys and you can virtually Transform the toys via the Bots menu.

Videos menu contains the trailers (which we've seen before) and might get updated with new content. So watch out for that.

Also worth noticing is a "Coming Soon" notice for the Transformers 4 Mobile Game App.

...and one more thing about the site: SPOILERS!

Fanstoys Soar Red and Blue Version, Unofficial Snarl, Sludge and Grimlock Announced

Posted on 04-20-2014 at 10:25 PM by ORIO under 3rd Party Unlicensed
Soar1 Popular 3rd party group, Fanstoys, have updated with information on their next release as well as three more releases planned after that. You may know Fanstoys based off of their popular fan produced, unofficial Masterpiece Shockwave, Quakewave. Due for release soon is Scoria, their follow up, an unofficial Masterpiece Dinobot Slag. Tonight, the group has updated with two options for their third intended release named Soar, an unofficial Masterpiece Swoop. Their take on Dinobot Swoop will be available in two different color options. Red, for fans of the G1 toy, and Blue, for fans of his appearance in the original G1 cartoon.

On top of this exciting news, we have a picture revealing Fantoys next three releases after Scoria and Soar. The lineup of toys is called Iron Dibots, and unofficial Masterpiece versions of Snarl, Sludge and finally Grimlock will follow suit. Grimlock is surprising, as fans already have a well represented Masterpiece version of the character. But, fans unhappy that Scoria is going to be taller than the Hasbro/Takara release will be happy to hear a more scaled version is being planned.

Check out the new pics after the break!

Update: Additional FT-05 Soar pics have been revealed courtesy of site sponsor TFSource.

30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 1996

Posted on 04-20-2014 at 12:00 PM by Sol Fury under Beast Wars
1996 With the demise of Transformers Generation 2, the Transformers brand once again faced oblivion, and this time, it looked like Transformers might disappear from store shelves worldwide. Hasbro decided to take a gamble and hand the brand over to their subsidiary, Kenner, who had made the Star Wars and Super Powers lines in the 70s and 80s, and was doing well with Batman at the time. The result was a complete rebooting of the Transformers franchise. Cars, jets and other vehicles gave way to realistic animals with molded fur texture. Subgroups disappeared and line-wide size classes were established. Articulation on a level with the Cyberjets and other later Generation 2 designs became the norm.

The Beast Wars had begun.
