A Glimpse Inside Ex Kenner/Hasbro Employee's Toy Collection

Posted on 08-21-2014 at 09:07 AM by StayingInTheBox under Other News
It's not very often Transformers fans get to witness toy history, such as something as epic as a nearly $27,000 G2 Menasor auction. Needless to say when prototypes, unreleased items, and test shots are shown, Transformers fans can be mesmerized by what we see. TFW thought it would be cool to share a small piece of that with two videos provided by z75sales, the seller who has been listing several unreleased items including the infamous G2 Menasor.

In the two videos we get a glimpse of the sheer size of an ex Kenner/Hasbro employee who is selling off the collection of untouched and rarely seen items. Literally hundreds of boxes with toys from the late 80's and 1990's need to be organized and categorized, some of which still hold surprises!

Check out the videos below for a fun piece of the rarely seen side of our hobby.

Timelines-Pirates-vs-Knights Thanks to TFW2005 board member D-Drive we have our first look at the Diamond Edition cover and solicit for Transformers Timelines #10: Pirates vs Knights! This issue was featured at BotCon 2014, the Diamond edition will include a brand new cover by artist Marcelo Matare. Here's the info we have so far:

TRANSFORMERS TIMELINES #10 PIRATES VS KNIGHTS
FUN PUBLICATIONS INC
(W) Marty Isenberg (A) Hayato Sakamoto (CA) Marcelo Matere
Noble, wise, and loyal to the cause, the Knights of Cybertron are steadfast in their protection of their homeworld. Any villainy that dare threaten the planet will be met with valiant courage, unwavering will, and Cybertron's greatest warriors! What remains of Unicron has cast its shadow over Cybertron for years, a constant reminder to the planet's inhabitants of the war that almost destroyed their world. Though he has been dormant for a long time, Captain Cannonball, Scorponok, and the pirate crew of the Star Seekers have arrived to change that. Hoping to use Unicron's insatiable hunger to drain Cybertron of Energon, the pirates may have underestimated the chaosbringer's own ambitions!
Cover by Marcelo Matare

Transformers G1 Cartoon Soundtrack Restoration Project Kickstarter

Posted on 08-19-2014 at 12:02 PM by Tony_Bacala under Generation 1
G1sounds2 TFW2005 would like to alert the fandom to a pretty cool Kickstarter going on right now. The project aims to restore the Generation 1 cartoon soundtrack music to the best possible quality it can be.

To date, music from the series has never been officially released in any form. This is probably because much of it appeared in many different shows, and not all Hasbro owned properties. You can find a lot of it in Jem, G.I. Joe, Transformers, and even Spider-Man. Basically, anything Marvel/Sunbow produced. Licensing rights and royalties are probably a nightmare.

Any extended pieces of music were stitched together by cutting uninterrupted 1/2/3/4/5 second clips right from the DVDs until you had something resembling a song. This is tedious, hard work. Listening to over 2000 hours of episode audio just to pull maybe 30 minutes out in 1 second intervals is crazy and awesome. This was done over the last several years by Grimbot, who shared his work via TFCog.

I personally did this myself, though not to this extent, so I know how hard it can be. Back when TFW2005 started, one of it's main purposes was a way for me to share the Transformers focused music remixes I did, most using background clips I cut out of the show. Tho back then, I pushed a VCR into a microphone-in jack and recorded entire episodes at a time to the computer as WAVs, then cut out clips in Sound Forge. I constantly ran into situations where a footstep, computer beep, start of a sentence, breathing, wind, - you name it, would interrupt my clip and ruin the loop. Having this software or this mix 14 years ago would have been awesome.

The Kickstarter by Jimbo is now attempting to clean and restore that mix by Grimbot even further, using top of the line editing software. In the presentation video, they show examples of what can be done. It is reasonably priced, only asking for 650 dollars in order to get the software at a discounted price of half off ~1200. And, it's half funded as of this story. There are also some stretch goals, if they get to 1250 total they will also obtain and apply two additional pieces of software to make it even better. So, we urge you as fans to support this if you dig that original G1 toon music, even if it's just a couple bucks. Hopefully when done, their hard work will give the fans something awesome to rock out and reminisce to.

Head on over and support it if you can! WORD!

tumblr_nad8ld3FiZ1rojbapo1_1280 IDW Transformers colorist John-Paul Bove has posted a new Transformers: Robots in Disguise #32 30th anniversary variant cover on his Tumblr. Drawn by Casey Coller and colored by John-Paul, the cover features Unicron, Optimus Prime, and Scorponok, among others:

"So finally I can reveal this cover and it is possibly my favourite single image I have worked on. This is one of my favourite moments in all of TF history and I wanted to have Unicron swept up in fiery hell and Optimus and Scorponok to be in a cool and contemplative hue. A still moment contrasted against a firestorm. Hope you dig it!"

"Possibly my favourite thing I have ever coloured. Hope you dig!"

Topeam Third Party SD Transformable Jazz

69a367e0jw1ejgmvr737cj20jg0cz76k While there is no denying that super-deformed Transformers - that's Transformers with heads much larger than their bodies - is a niche area of collecting, it is one that is getting steadily filled out both officially by Takara-Tomy and their Q Transformers, and unofficially with unlicensed third party releases.

The latest addition to the third party side of the equation is Topeam, who are making an SD and fully transformable Jazz figure. And yes - we are informed that disproportionately huge noggin does not need to be removed as a part of the transformation.

10557229_10202232054554957_1810861608106561803_n Via the Transformers Colombia Facebook group and Transformers Peru, we can share some additional news on the Oreo Transformers giveaway currently taking place in South America. TFW2005 and Transformers Peru member Neo-Bombshell has shared with us some additional information on the promotion - when you purchase three specially marked six-packs you got a poster from participating supermarkets. Each Oreo comes with a sticker for the album which also featured a code to input on the to the Ganaoreo site in order to win various prizes.

By accounts it seems that all four of the Deluxes in the first assortment are up for grabs - that's Scorn, High Octane Bumblebee, Crosshairs and Slug - but none of them come with their weapons other than Bumblebee's missile. They instead come with some Oreos! Other prizes included three First Edition Optimus Primes from Age of Extinction, Age of Extinction Optimus Prime and Bumblebee masks, and tickets to see AoE in theaters.

With thanks to Neo Bombshell, we can share with you some pictures of the various promotional materials that came with this campaign, including an Optimus Prime standee, an OreTruck complete with Decepticon symbol, the poster with all the stickers and a special promotional box containing three six packs of Oreos with pre-cut silhouettes of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. We're told that last one was a bit less popular due to the fact it was more expensive than buying the six-packs individually.
