Protectobots Evac Squad & Emergency Rescue Sets released in Malaysia

Posted on 09-21-2014 at 10:24 AM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
27468868d1411304609-protectobots-sets-found-toy-r-us-malaysia-image The Protectobots multipacks have now been found at retail in Asia. These releases - which we suspect might be Asia exclusive - have been found at a Toys R Us in Sunway Pyramid, Malaysia.

The five Protectobots are represented across the two multipacks, using a variety of older molds. The Evac Squad set features Hot Spot and Blades, with repainted from United Artfire (which combined the Classics Grapple crane with the Inferno body) and Blades repainted from Revenge of the Fallen Blazemaster. The Emergency Response set repurposes Transformers Prime Ratchet as First Aid, Beast Hunters Prowl as Streetwise / Streetsmart and the Cyberverse Legion Arcee as Groove.

A big thanks goes to TFW2005 member Wildstrikes for the news tip.

Transformers: Robots in Disguise #33 30th Anniversary Sarah Stone Cover

tumblr_nc24el3eRL1rojbapo1_1280 IDW Transformers artist Sarah Stone has posted the Transformers: Robots in Disguise #33 30th Anniversary cover up on her Tumblr. The cover features none other than fan-favorite Last Stand of the Wreckers character Ironfist/Fisitron:

IDW Transformers Trade Paperbacks for March 2015

Posted on 09-20-2014 at 12:36 PM by Sol Fury under Comics
1252827-transformers_universe_v1_003 Amazon has put up a pair of listings for two new IDW Transformers trade paperbacks. The first of these, due March 3 2015, is the expected collected edition for Transformers: Primacy - the third Flint Dille penned miniseries telling the tale of the early years of the war on Cybertron, the first two issues of which are available now.

The second of the trade paperbacks is perhaps the more shocking. Coming completely out of the left field is Transformers Classics Volume 8. This one is due on March 10, 2015. It collects the Transformers Universe profile books that Marvel published in 1986 which covered the cast and characters of the first three years of the Transformers toyline. Also collected in this volume are the character biographies that were published in issues #47-49, 56-72, and 74-79 of the Marvel US run. Topping off the collection is the original four issue G.I. Joe and the Transformers crossover miniseries.

There's no cover art for either of these yet - watch this space for more updates.

TFW's Generations Jetfire In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 09-20-2014 at 07:52 AM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Jetfire-Robot-92 For our next gallery, it's time to bring on the big guy! Generations Jetfire is this year's high-end offering in the Generations line, and like Metroplex before him, he stands as a testament to how Hasbro genuinely does care about the fans.

Generations Jetfire is a very faithful update of the original Jetfire / Skyfire from Generation 1. He blends in elements of the original toy with the non-Robotech infringing animation model, effectively transforming from a very Generation 1 fighter jet to a very sharp version of the robot mode from the cartoon. He's a big and chunky toy, with great poseability. For accessories, Jetfire has a missile launching rifle plus detachable armor and boosters (none of which needs to come off for transformation - a great touch). He's also got a visor which can be removed to reveal the original head from the animation model - and when that visor is on, it lines up perfectly with the robot eyes underneath.

All in all, this Generations Jetfire is a great toy who makes a fantastic 30th birthday present to Transformers fans. He is for the moment the definitive version of Jetfire which for us hits all the right notes. Greatly recommended - check out our gallery of almost 200 pictures and see for yourself:

STK642790 Deadshirt.net has posted a long and in-depth interview with the writer of IDW's Transformers VS G.I. Joe series, Tom Scioli. This interview covers a lot of the creative process behind the crossover, from inspirations to the involvement of Hasbro and IDW Publishing - and indeed there is also an answer to the question "how long does this plan to carry on for" - the answer being that Tom Scioli "could do this indefinitely".

Masterpiece MP-20 Wheeljack - Hidden Face Reveal?

Posted on 09-19-2014 at 11:40 AM by StayingInTheBox under Transformers Masterpiece
Bx6GYOuCAAES9ci We continue to be surprised with new reveals and features from the Transformers Masterpiece toy line. Earlier this morning we learned even more about MP Star Saber and now it's Wheeljack's turn to surprise us, which was just recently released in Japan.

Weibo user ZEUX1S shared with us an interesting reveal when Wheeljack's head sculpt was disassembled, showing off a strong resemblance to the Animated Wheeljack's head design. TFW2005 board member GogDog put together a side by side image of MP and Animated Wheeljack's heads showing what appears to be a mustache on the Masterpiece figure among other shared characteristics, similar to the Animated design.

Coincidence? A nod to Animated fans by the Takara designers? We'll let you be the judge, so hit the discussion link below!

Takara-Tomy Legends Swerve, Tailgate and Brainstorm Decos Teased

Posted on 09-18-2014 at 05:06 PM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
thumb_lg09 Takara-Tomy have begun to update their website to show off the next few releases in their Transformers Legends line. Swarp aka Swerve, Tailgate and Brainstorm now have thumbnail images on the release listing for the line, although there's no full images in the Takara-Tomy product catalog - yet.

What we can see from the images are that Swerve and Tailgate both feature some darker colors compared to their US releases - Swerve has a darker maroon closer to his original tone, and Tailgate's teal is also darker. His chest has some silver on it, and there's an Autobot symbol on the torso.

Brainstorm meanwhile has a much more detailed deco - lots more painted details on the torso including some silver on the torso and red and silver on the chest wings.

Keep it TFW for more news as it emerges - we expect Takara-Tomy will release full images of these three fairly soon.

Transformers Cloud Roadbuster and Hellwarp New Image

Posted on 09-18-2014 at 09:08 AM by StayingInTheBox under Japanese Transformers
bnr_tfcloud140918 Hat tip to TFW2005 boards member PoweredConvoy for linking us to a new promo image for the newest Transformers Cloud figures: Roadbuster and Hellwarp. The promo image found on the TakaraTomy Mall's home page not only gives us another look at the Takara exclusive repaints, but also provides a preorder window of September 24 - November 4, 2014. As with past releases, several of TFW's sponsors may also carry these figures.

As a reminder of who these characters are and what their paint schemes represent, Roadbuster is a Transformers Energon Ironhide themed repaint. He'll be the fourth release of TakaraTomy Mall exclusives.

Hellwarp is a little more obscure, but TFW's very own Sol Fury provides a great summary of who Hellwarp is: Hellwarp is a completely new, non-homage character, there was a Hellscream in 1998's Beast Wars Second, who was a remold of Cybershark to represent an evolved version of that show's Starscream. Hellwarp is a similar concept - a recolored version of Generations Skybyte to represent a cyborg shark evolution of skywarp. To top it off, the mohawk head that using the Skybyte mold gives Skywarp just might be a reference to Transformers Armada Skywarp, who also had a fin on his head. Hellwarp is the E-Hobby exclusive of the fourth set of Cloud releases.

Check it out after the jump and discuss away!

Event Synopsis:
RODIMUS, ULTRA MAGNUS, SPRINGER and ARCEE foil VICTOR DRATH’S attempt to steal the powerful, but volatile, Newtronium. DRATH, fed up with their constant interference, calls on the mercenary OLD SNAKE for help.

VICTOR DRATH lures the AUTOBOTS into a trap, and using OLD SNAKE’S technology, transfers their minds into the bodies of synthoids. OLD SNAKE convinces DRATH to use the now-mindless AUTOBOTS as weapons, by outfitting them with controls.

Meanwhile, as the RODIMUS and his friends get used to their new bodies, they learn that DRATH and OLD SNAKE are going to use their bodies to blow up AUTOBOT CITY. It is now a race against time, as the now-human AUTOBOTS try to warn the city and stop VICTOR DRATH’S forces.

Will the AUTOBOTS reclaim their bodies, or will they be trapped in them forever? Will OLD SNAKE be able to help VICTOR DRATH destroy AUTOBOT CITY and claim his revenge? Find out on TRANSFORMERS: LEGENDS – “ONLY HUMAN”!

Also, we want to wish a Happy 30th Birthday to Transformers!

hub Deadline is reporting that The Hub, a joint venture with Discovery Networks and Hasbro, is no more. The channel will be re-branded in "Discovery: XYZ" fashion, most likely Discovery Family. They will also be taking a larger stake of the channel by acquiring Hasbro shares. Hasbro will retain some interest and continue to provide programming from 9 AM - 3 PM, so we should still see Transformers and other programming on the station. Whether or not they will also get prime time slots for first run episodes, not mentioned here. Check the full details over at Deadline and discuss on the forums!

Transformers at 30 - Anniversary of the premiere of the first episode!

Posted on 09-17-2014 at 11:00 AM by Sol Fury under Generation 1
05transformers On this day in Transformers history – September 17, 1984 was the date of the premiere of the very first Transformers cartoon. More than Meets the Eye part 1 brought to TV screens the saga of the Transformers – journeying from planet Cybertron to Earth in search of precious energy sources to rejuvenate their world.

In the 30 years that have passed in between, we’ve had over 720 episodes of Transformers. Those 720 episodes have spanned no less than 17 different cartoon shows, each with its own unique premise, but all tracing themselves back to the great pedigree set down by the first ever episode of Transformers, which aired this day in 1984.

As a fan who was around in 1984, I can remember watching the original trilogy of More than Meets the Eye cartoon episodes on a VHS tape called “Arrival from Cybertron”. More than Meets the Eye / Arrival for Cybertron opened up for me this whole fantastical world of transforming alien robots – leaving their home which was critically low on energy and crashlanding on our own four million years ago, only to awaken in a volcanic tremor and resume their war on Earth.

The premiere trilogy wasted no time in cutting straight to the action, and quickly established the roster of personalities. It was a very good, strong start for the show that did an excellent job of world-building and setting out who was who - and of course, it was followed by an excellent first season that built off the strong foundation.

On this day, we celebrate the first Transformers cartoon, and the rich legacy that it led to – because there can be little doubt that without such a strong cartoon to back it up, the Transformers may not have gained the momentum it did to break through and become the phenomenon that it is today.

On an aside, you might be amused to know that the very first Transformer to appear on screen in this first episode is none other than Wheeljack, closely followed by Bumblebee. Perhaps by accident or design, any day now Wheeljack is going to celebrate his role as the first Transformer to appear on screen by getting his very own Masterpiece toy released – and as with the cartoon, a Masterpiece Bumblebee is following closely after.

Transformers 2015 Toyline Details Leaked

Posted on 09-13-2014 at 05:34 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Prime
27467266d1410639055-tf-rid-toyline-details-leaked-cyberverse-back-1 Some scans of a Hasbro products line catalog have been posted in the Transformers Colombia Facebook group. It's important to note that these listings relate to Colombia only, so there may be other toys or lines which are not planned to be released in Colombia which are therefore not listed here.

With that in mind, let's dive in and take a look at what is shown. The first headline is that in Colombia, Robots in Disguise will air on Cartoon Network and will premiere on 15 March 2015 - implying that the as-yet unknown US premiere may take place sometime before this.

The first of the three sheets shows us the Robots in Disguise 2015 line, as revealed at San Diego Comic Con 2014. The four assortments are: Warrior (Deluxe analog assortment, details are misprinted with the one-step info); Legion (Legends class figures, assortment is said to contain 12 figures which convert in 20 steps or fewer, which seems an exaggeration considering such small toys generally do not have such involved transformations). The Hyperchange assortment is also listed and described as having three-step conversions and six figures in the assortment - so similar to the current Power Battlers line. Lastly the Robots in Disguise One-Step Changers are also listed, with 14 toys said to be in the assortment.

The second and third sheets cover side-line items. The Titan figures look set to continue, with 12 inch Hero figures being planned both with and without electronic features, and a series of 6 inch Titan Guardians also being planned. The picture accompanying this listing suggests there will be a 5 pack of 6 inch Titan Guardian Seekers - Skywarp, Starscream, Thundercracker, Sunstorm and Acid Storm. There's also some information on Hero Mashers, but nothing previously unseen there (yet)

Once again a big thanks to Transformers Colombia for sharing this with the fan community.

TCC Figure Subscription Service Tarantulas Revised Promo Image

27467080d1410545329-tcc-figure-subscription-service-tarantulas-promo-new Demonstrating that they do indeed listen to fan feedback, the TCC has posted a fresh image of their Figure Subscription Service 3.0 Tarantulas on their Facebook page. Compared to the one that we saw yesterday, this version of the Predacon mad scientist features darker colors overall, with his face and forearms reworked to better resemble how the character looked in Beast Wars.

Check out the new promo attached to this post, and check out the Transformers Collectors Club homepage to get in on the ground floor of this year's subscription service - we've been told that the numbers of figures being made this year are going to be very limited to the point that there might not be much in the way of spare stock, so act now to avoid potential disappointment later.


In the way of some extra fun, please see a comparison image of the three prospective decos of this figure - Botcon 2014 reveal, yesterday's mockup and today's revised deco - as compiled by TFW2005 member Jalaguy attached to this post.

Transformers Cloud Shockwave and Takara-Tomy Legends Whirl In-Hand

784594903_o Ebay seller lena81822 has put up a pair of auctions for upcoming releases from Takara-Tomy - Legends Whirl, and the E-Hobby exclusive Cloud Shockwave. Legends Whirl is similar to the Hasbro release - just with some extra paint here and there such as on the canopy - while Cloud Shockwave is a nice shiny purple version of the mold. Notably, the Shockwave does not have clear weapons or claws like earlier promotional images showed - common thought is that the black claws and weapons are actually from a Whirl.
