New Transformers: Age Of Extinction Mobile Game Boss Battle - Galvatron

Posted on 10-25-2014 at 01:10 AM by SilverOptimus under Video Games
galvatron-exclusive-blueprint-images-from-transformers-age-of-extinction DeNA has quietly updated their Transformers: Age Of Extinction mobile game with a new Boss Battle; Galvatron.

About the Boss Battle:
While the AUTOBOTS are distracted trying to defeat LOCKDOWN and his soldiers, Galvatron is secretly waiting to strike against the AUTOBOTS when they are at their weakest. If his endless missiles don’t slow players down, Galvatron’s devastating punch just might.

Players must take down Galvatron and the onslaught of his army of Stinger soldiers by equipping their team with the best gear available. This will be the most challenging battle the AUTOBOTS have seen yet.

You can download the game for Android and iOS.

Masterpiece Bumblebee In-Hand Images

Posted on 10-23-2014 at 06:52 AM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
27475270d1414056949-mp-21-masterpiece-bumblebee-99_117112_5ef363504b213f5 Happy Thursday! We've got some great in-hand images of Masterpiece Bumblebee to share with you this morning, courtesy of dlarirang from ACToys!

You can see from these images that Masterpiece Bumblebee is appropriately short for his diminutive stature - he's around the size of a small deluxe. Worry not though because dlarirang reports that the transformation is satisfyingly complicated particularly with respect of the legs. The color is also described as being fairly close to the orange end of yellow - no bright yellow Bees here! It's noted that the fists are different from past Masterpieces and are a solid piece, without articulated fingers likely owing to the smaller size.

Check out the images after the break and get excited for the Masterpiece series release of the little yellow 'bot!

Takara-Tomy Legends Convoy (Optimus Primal) In-Hand Images

Posted on 10-23-2014 at 06:15 AM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
hnCTn4q Via the twitter account of Yuki Ohshima we have some in-hand images of the Transformers Legends LG-02 Convoy aka Optimus Primal. This new release of the original 1996 Ultra Class toy from Beast Wars features the tweaked tooling originally used when the mold was rereleased in 2006 for the Beast Wars 10th Anniversary. For those unfamiliar, Yuki Ohshima was the artist who the Kiss Players manga, and designed the female characters for that series. Looks like he is on art for this new line - which could be interesting once the female Autobots come around... !

Takara-Tomy's own PR twitter has also released an in-box image of both Convoy and Rattle (Rattrap) along with the original teaser image of the femmebots Arcee, Windblade and Chromia, now un-silhouetted!

This is pretty exciting considering wave 3 is not released yet, nor is the full listing of characters for the wave. Another interesting thing is that on the side of Jetfire there is a hole for a button. A similar hole was used for Wave 2's Optimus Prime's speech box.

New Upcoming Takara Figure Images - Armor Knight Optimus Prime, Legends Fembots, And More

Posted on 10-21-2014 at 11:16 PM by Mechafire under Japanese Transformers
fo20113 Via TAG Hobby, we have new images from the latest Figure King magazine, showing off a few upcoming Takara Transformers. Among them are some new looks at the the Armor Knight Optimus Prime, Legends Arcee, Chromia and Windblade, Black Knight Dinobots Scorn, Strafe, and Slug, and also in-package shots of Masterpiece Bumblebee and a few other upcoming Takara Legends releases.

As can be seen here, all of these figures are done up to be more accurate to their past fictional depictions - Optimus has extensive remolding to resemble how he looked in AOE more, Arcee and Chromia have been colored to better match their G1 cartoon appearances, and Windblade has paint apps specifically matching the way she's been drawn by Sarah Stone in the IDW comics.

A few interesting tidbits can also be gleaned from what we see of Armor Knight Optimus here - it seems his face does not change by way of a simple removable faceplate as many had speculated, but by having two alternate faces built into his head. He also appears to have new boxart and comes already-posed in his famous AOE stance in the box.

Check 'em out and discuss after the break!
