Transformers: Legends Game Event - Rules Of Disengagement - UPDATE!

Posted on 02-25-2015 at 02:07 PM by SilverOptimus under Video Games
tumblr_inline_nkapygXkBi1slbwep Pre-Registration for the next DeNA Transformers: Legends Team Event; Rules Of Disengagement is now live.

Event Description:

Aboard a dimly lit DECEPTICON spacecraft, TARN turns to KAON and asks for a situation update. KAON reports that everything is going to plan, and that they should be close to their targets soon. The leader of the DECEPTICON Justice Division nods, and prepares to set their ship down on planet Clemency.

On the surface, BLACK SHADOW seeks refuge in the wrecked hulks left behind from a previous war. On the run for taking bribes from the AUTOBOTS to destroy a fleet of DECEPTICON War Worlds, the Phase Sixer stops and takes a breath inside a ruined ship when he runs across FLYWHEELS and the other Scavengers.

As the group finishes their conversation, a crunching noise outside alerts them to the presence of TESARUS, VOS, and the rest of the DJD. Unwilling to roll over and die, FLYWHEELS and BLACK SHADOW draw their weapons and prepare for battle.

Will BLACK SHADOW and FLYWHEELS escape the clutches of the DECEPTICON Justice Division? Or will TARN and his deadly crew eliminate their targets with extreme prejudice? Find out on TRANSFORMERS Legends - “Rules of Disengagement”!

Update 02/26/2015:

"Dear TRANSFORMERS Legends Fans,

The Ultra Legendary reward cards are here! Beware, he is more powerful than any of his predecessors! Can you defeat the mighty TARN? Can you surpass the strength and power of this new challenge? Who will rise to the top?

Roll out,

The Rise and Fall of The Hub and Hasbro's New TV Strategy

Posted on 02-25-2015 at 09:29 AM by Matty under Other News
HUB_Logo_3D_1 It's no secret by now, The Hub Network simply did not pan out as planned. When launched, many Transformers fans had high hopes for the Hasbro owned TV network. Unfortunately as time went on, a short amount of time, reality set in that The Hub was simply not making money fast enough.

Adweek ran a story about the rise and fall of Hasbro's TV attempt, specifically "what went wrong with The Hub, and what the toymaker hopes will go right" in the near future.

With Robots In Disguise premiering on Cartoon network on March 14, this may be a good time to revisit the background of The Hub's downfall with interview pieces from Hasbro executives and other industry leaders, while also taking a look at Hasbro's plan for the near future.

playwiththistoo We've been following the progression of PlayWithThisToo's upcoming action figure line here at TFW2005. While it isn't 100% Transformers related, it does have throwbacks to lines and themes we all grew up on and has several former Hasbro employees involved. For the past 6 months, new concept art for multiple characters have been revealed with the first physical prototype of Desolataur hitting as well. You can check updates and discussion for them all in the forums here.

We wanted to remind everyone that the Kickstarter for this project starts this Friday, February 27th, at 9 AM. If they make any of these figures, how many, and what awesome little bonuses we get all depends on the level of support you show. So keep an eye out on their Facebook page and here this Friday for details on where and how to support the project.

Earlier in the weekend though, a different round of awards were given out, described as "Hollywood's annual tip of the hat for the worst screen achievements of the year" - The Razzies.

The latest live action Transformers film, Age of Extinction, took home two Razzie awards: Kelsey Grammer for Worst Supporting Actor and Michael Bay for Worst Director. So a special congratulations to the two for their career defining awards for their contributions in Transformers Age of Extinction ...

In all seriousness, what does TFW think of the two Razzie awards? Deserving? Was AOE and Kelsey Grammer really that bad? Sound off after the jump and share your thoughts!

Offroad is explicitly referred to as being a new member of the team in his bio, and is sent on the missions the other Stunticons do not want to handle in order to win their trust. He's a decent looking little robot who adds some rugged off road truck action to the Decepticon stunt team, and he has a wicked looking axe.

TFW's Age of Extinction Stinger (Japanese Exclusive) Gallery

Posted on 02-20-2015 at 04:04 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
Stinger-Robot-36 We have a new in-hand Transformers gallery for you. Hailing from the movie series by way of a Japan exclusive repaint, we have the Stinger! Stinger features in Transformers Age of Extinction as a human-built Transformer, designed as a Bumblebee clone. With a striking and sinister red color scheme, Cliffjumper this is not!

Stinger is a straight-up redeco of the Age of Extinction new Camaro Bumblebee, which means the robot mode is more or less spot on for the appearance of the robot mode, although obviously the vehicle mode is not the on-screen Pagani. This may or may not prove to be a dealbreaker, as the deco itself is excellent, and we'd imagine most people would display in the robot mode, which looks great.

You can check out the full gallery of this Japanese market exclusive at the link below:
