TFW's Robots in Disguise Strongarm In-Hand Galleries

Posted on 03-05-2015 at 02:55 PM by Sol Fury under Robots In Disguise (201x)
Strongarm-Robot-31 Our next in-hand Transformers toy gallery is the Robots in Disguise Strongarm! This latest female character to join the franchise is a police SUV and has a fairly boxy design which is refreshing, and it recalls the design of the 1980s Gobot character, Smallfoot, as much as anything.

Strongarm's toy is pretty decent. While she lacks a few paint applications to be spot on to the show, particularly on the chest and head, she's got decent articulation including a waist swivel, and she also feels like she's a big, chunky toy. Granted for some this might play up how much she's being aimed at the younger end of the Transformer buying public, but it feels like you're at least getting a slightly more substantial toy. Plus, a bonus that is damning of the rest of the Warriors, there does not feel like there is anything on Strongarm that might wear down or break easily.

Overall, she's a decent toy, and more female Transformers are always going to be welcome. Check out her gallery and see for yourself:

First look at Combiner Wars Ironhide?

Posted on 03-05-2015 at 10:26 AM by Mechafire under Generations / Classics
16724319215_654f243f07_z TFW2005 boards member scubaboy31 has just brought something interesting to our attention. In the back of the comics that are being packed in with the Combiner Wars wave 2 Deluxe figures, there is a page which has some neat extras such as design sketches, prototypes, and color layouts. What's intriguing is that Offroad's depicts him with a different head - an Ironhide-ish head, even. This would match up with rumors we'd heard previously of there being a Masquerade-esque Combiner Wars wave coming up, so could this be our fist look at Ironhide?

Speculate away after the jump!

Transformers: Legends Game Event - Megatron Origins

Posted on 03-05-2015 at 10:13 AM by SilverOptimus under Video Games
DeNA-Transformers-Legends-Megatron-Origins After a bit of a delay, the next DeNA Transformers: Legends episode is now live. Titled as Megatron Origins, the episode features Senator Ratbat, Sentinel Prime, Alpha Trion, Clench and... well... Megatron.

Episode Synopsis:

"MEGATRON, an energon miner, is present when SENATOR RATBAT arrives to shut down the operation he works at. Angered at the treatment of one of his fellow miners by the Senator’s guards, MEGATRON retaliates, accidentally killing the guard and getting himself arrested.

Aboard the prison transport vessel, the now-former miner is convinced by some fellow inmates to lead a shipboard revolt, and does so. The ship, now under MEGATRON’S control, heads for the city of Kaon, where he and his new allies begin to plot against the forces working against them.

Elsewhere, SENTINEL PRIME learns of the situation, and sends ALPHA TRION to deal with it. After some preliminary research, the erstwhile AUTOBOT tracks the revolt’s instigators to the gladiator pits of Kaon.

While waiting to initiate the plans that he and his group have created, MEGATRON joins the local gladiatorial games, where he becomes accustomed to dispatching his foes. In one of his battles, he loses an arm, only for it to be replaced by parts from fallen combatants. As he rises through the ranks, it becomes clear that only one thing stands in his way - CLENCH.

Will MEGATRON be able to defeat CLENCH and execute the plan he’s been working towards? Will ALPHA TRION discover what hidden plot the gladiator has wrought? Find out on TRANSFORMERS Legends - “Megatron Origins”!"

Masterpiece MP-24 Star Saber - New Box Image

Posted on 03-05-2015 at 08:34 AM by Matty under Transformers Masterpiece
B_VLYUAUcAAsZ6f The wait is almost over everyone. Masterpiece Star Saber will begin shipping overseas on March 21, arriving shortly after to North American retailers. To hold us over until then, Star Saber designer Hisashi Yuki continues to drop gems for us on his Twitter page.

This morning we have our very first image of Star Saber's box, which Hisashi Yuki mentions will be the same size as Masterpiece Ultra Magnus packaging. Interesting to note there does not appear to be any call out to this release being the 30th Anniversary fan voted Masterpiece, at least from what we can see here. The packaging will however fit right into line with the other Generation 1 Masterpiece released figures to this point continuing a consistent packaging theme.

Stay tuned for more images and news as we inch closer to the release date!

Kabaya Transformers D Collection

Posted on 03-04-2015 at 03:50 PM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
FIG-COL-8613 Via Amiami we have word of an upcoming Kabaya Transformers release. Named "D Collection", these are a set of three PVC (or similar material, we'd wager) figures. The three characters are Optimus Prime, Megatron and Starscream, each being poseable at the head, waist, and shoulders, and featuring a few different accessories. The figures also have chase edition "clear" versions. Check out a few images of these new Kabaya releases after the break.

Combiner Wars Deluxe Wave 2 pack in comics feature extended bios

Posted on 03-04-2015 at 03:30 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
SCN_0005_zpstom6rrjy Via TFW2005 member Starscream Gaga we can reveal that the pack-in comics for Combiner Wars Deluxe Wave 2 feature extended character bios on the backs of the comics. The bios are written in the style of the old Marvel or Dreamwave More than Meets the Eye bios, and presented as psych reports in universe, with the Decepticon ones being written by Soundwave, and the Autobot ones by the ubiquitous Rung!

The extended bios flesh out the characters a lot more in the way that only a full on who's who profile can. Fans of Wildrider might be sad to note though that the Offroad bio directly mentions how Offroad has replaced a "fallen Stunticon" as a member of the Menasor combiner group - suggesting in the universe created by the toy fiction that Wildrider is no more. The fact he shares Wildrider's colors is also noted, in a cool touch - you can really see that some attention was put into these bios. Check them out after the break, with thanks to Starscream Gaga for sharing them with us.

New Masterpieces and MP Tracks NOT MP-25?

Posted on 03-04-2015 at 07:54 AM by Tony_Bacala under Transformers Masterpiece
mp-25_1425390597 According to the earlier report from Australian Toy Fair via Ozformers, Masterpiece Tracks is being reported as NOT MP-25. Where he falls and who else is in line is not known at the moment. The full wording for the initial info was:

Tracks (not MP25), MP25 in Sept (I can't reveal name before TakaraTomy), and two new "sports cars" for OCT & NOV.

It's worth noting that this runs contra to the previous Japanese hobby magazines which were printed with Tracks clearly identified as MP-25.

Platinum Edition G1 Dinobots Set, New Masterpiece, Generations And More Info From Australia Toy Fair

Posted on 03-04-2015 at 07:40 AM by Shin Densetsu under Toy Fair
image Griffin-of-oz has posted his initial report from Australia Toy Fair 2015 over at OzFormers. More information is coming later but here's Griffin's initial report:

Photos later tonight, and the full report.... but some teaser info to get you interested and to send the global fansites into meltdown.

Generations Devastator on display with my Gen1 Devastator - BigW already signed up for June/July.

More JP Masterpiece coming this year - Gold bumblebee July, Convoy reissue, Tracks (not MP25), MP25 in Sept (I can't reveal name before TakaraTomy), and two new "sports cars" for OCT & NOV.

Platinum edition - Myer will have Seeker pack and YOTG pair... while ToysRUs will have Insecticon pack, Perceptor/Blaster, Trypticon, aaaaand.... Dinobots. YES, Gen1 Dinobots multipack which I hope is all five.

JP Stinger still for this month, only at TRU though.

GEN Slingshot & Wildrider don't exist (yet) for Hasbro Generations, but might next year as Combiners are going to be at least two years.

Leader Starscream for wave 4.

Hasbro MP Starscream is the second (MP11) version because fans wanted it.
Hasbro MP Bluestreak will be in July.

Toyworld's cheaper prices were indeed just introductory prices from Hasbro.

Loyal Subjects w3 should be out in the next month.

That's most of it. More later, probably after midnight though.

Go nuts...


Meltdown commence! Stay tuned for more

EDIT: griffin has elaborated on the Mastepiece Transformers information:

Australia will continue to be following Hong Kong's lead and having both Hasbro and TakaraTomy Masterpiece toys at ToysRUs stores here.

The Japanese Masterpiece toys that SHOULD be coming this year (details and dates can change, and often do)...
- Gold bumblebee in around July,
- The Convoy reissue middle of the year,
- Tracks is NOT noted as MP-25 on the Hasbro Australia list, but maybe they have 25 and 26 mixed up, as Tracks was labelled as MP-25 in a recent Japanese Hobby magazine. If they are mixed up on this Australian list, then I know what MP-26 is.
- MP-25 (or 26 if the numbers were mixed up on the list) will be here in about Sept (I know what it is, but I can't reveal the name before TakaraTomy announces it)
- two "sports cars" for OCT and NOV (the names haven't be revealed to Hasbro Australia yet, as it is so far in the future, so I have no idea if they
are new moulds... but with three new moulds already this year, I'd imagine that at least one is a redeco).
(please don't bother asking me, or expect, any more information on the future Masterpiece toys, as I am not expecting updates before
TakaraTomy reveals the next few... and everything I am allowed to talk about is listed here already)

Ultimetal Optimus Prime In-Hand Review

Posted on 03-03-2015 at 08:40 PM by Sentinel under Generation 1
image Thanks to TFW board member Kuma Style, we have the first in-hand and extraordinarily detailed review of the oft delayed but highly anticipated figure, Art Storm Ultimetal Optimus Prime. Collectors have been extremely patient waiting to add this piece to their collections, but according to Kuma Style the wait more than paid off.

Standing an impressive 17 inches tall and weighing in at a shipping weight of almost 30 lbs, this figure is at first glance awe-inspiring. Full of diecast and sporting an incredible paint job, this figure is hugely (pun intended) impressive. What really sets this figure apart from previous incarnations of the famed Autobot leader is the removable armor over a highly-detailed and articulated skeleton. This figure is unique in that it allows collectors to remove parts of the armor to show the inner workings of Optimus, including functioning pistons in the wrists, ankles and ribs.

Additionally, the sheer mass of this figure dictates that special measures be taken into consideration with its engineering, so Art Storm added locking joints to support the dynamic posing that most collectors would be almost compelled to attempt with such an impressive and imposing figure. Lastly, the designers added lights and sound effects to truly bring this figure to life. Prime has light-up eyes, running lights and Matrix chamber, plus a moving mouthpiece that moves in tandem with a number of phrases spoken by Peter Cullen.

This is a massive and expensive addition to the world of Transformers collectibles and without a doubt a centerpiece of any collection.

Masterpiece Star Saber In-Hand

Posted on 03-03-2015 at 05:47 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
3f212d7fjw1epsyfe2uwsj20xc18gdok The appointed hour draws near when Masterpiece Star Saber will be released in Japan - and via Oldcasper on Weibo and fengqiaoken on ACtoys, we have a look at the Cybertron 5th Commander in-hand.

Hailing from the 1989 show, Transformers Victory, Star Saber was one of a series of Japan-only Cybertron faction commanders. Much like his predecessor Ginrai / Powermaster Optimus Prime, he consists of a small pilot figure, a Brainmaster, which merges with a smaller jet vehicle to form a robot, which then in turn merges with the larger booster engine to form the full-scale Star Saber.

Masterpiece Star Saber is looking to be every bit the large-scale release to celebrate the latter years of the Japanese Generation 1 series. It is an amazing looking release which seems to be set to impress Masterpiece Transformers fans everywhere. Check out the new images attached to this post.

Transformers #39 retailer incentive cover

Posted on 03-03-2015 at 05:12 PM by Sol Fury under Comics
B_MAx_8U8AADHTU You may recall from one of our earlier posts that the retailer incentive covers for Transformers #39 and Windblade #1 were something a bit special from IDW - each retailer participating in the incentive next month gets a cover showing their store either being protected by Superion (Transformers #39) or destroyed by Devastator (Windblade #1). We're told that in the end, six stores got in on this promotion.

Via Giant Robot Comics on Twitter, we have a look at one of the finished covers - this is the Transformers #39 cover. Decepticons in Dartmouth, Canada beware, because Giant Robot Comics is under the protection of Superion! Check it out, and a big thanks to TFW2005 member D-Drive for bringing this one to our attention.

TFW's Robots in Disguise Bumblebee In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 03-02-2015 at 02:16 PM by Sol Fury under Robots In Disguise (201x)
Bumblebee-Robot-27 Carrying on our series of Robots in Disguise galleries, today we're highlighting the main character of the new show, the one and only Bumblebee! Robots in Disguise Bumblebee remains a muscle car as he has been of late, but has traded arm cannons for a suitably huge greatsword.

Robots in Disguise Bumblebee is very much a middling release in the line. On the positives, he's got a good range of movement including a waist swivel, and can strike some good action poses with that sword of his, including a few with a two-handed grip. On the less great front, the car roof on the back of the legs gets in the way on some poses, and the feet lack substantial heels, so some poses are really hard to maintain. The gears on the doors are also a cause for concern - the teeth on mine have already worn down in paces after only a few transformations.

Overall, Bumblebee is a release with personality and poseability, but he is not without flaws by any means. Check out his gallery to see what you think of the leading Autobot in the new show, Robots in Disguise!

image Thanks to board member SydneyY, our resident Japanese translator, we bring you an interview from Figure King Magazine, Issue #205 featuring Hisashi Yuki. Yuki-San is one of the head designers currently working on the Combiners Wars/Unite Warriors line for TakaraTomy.

Yuki-San goes into detail regarding his work on Unite Warriors, specifically the development of Superion as well as providing us with a few insights into the decision-making process behind Masterpiece Star Saber and his work on the upcoming "Adventure" line.

- How did "Combiners" become the theme?
- How did you proceed with the development of Superion?
- How did you decide on the direction of Japanese "Unite Warriors" development?
- Also MP Star Saber is going to be released in March at last.
- I can't help wondering about Victory Leo....
- Tell us about your current work.
- This year is the 30th anniversary of Transformers arriving in Japan. What do you suggest the fans to pay attention to?

TFW's Robots in Disguise Steeljaw and Underbite In-Hand Galleries

Posted on 03-01-2015 at 10:51 AM by Sol Fury under Robots In Disguise (201x)
Underbite-with-Steeljaw-Robot We're carrying on with our galleries of the new Robots in Disguise line, and it's time to bring on the bad guys! We're doing a two for one today folks with a look at both the Warrior class Steeljaw and the One Step changer Underbite!

First up, Steeljaw is the wolf-man and leader of the Decepticon escapees in the new show. He's got a cool design, complete with an articulated wolf-tail, but suffers a bit with a heavy backpack and needing to use the tail to balance. The design of the elbows also scares me - they feel like they could break (a real fear, given Grimlock's). Not one of the best releases in the line, all things considered.

Next up is Underbite. The villain in the pilot episode, he's one of the debut One Step changers for the line and is quite fun as a desk fiddle toy. He looks decently accurate to his on-screen version, and does have some limited poseability in dino mode.

The pair are by no means perfect, but they are decent representations of their characters. Check them out and see what you think.

Robots in Disguise Hero Mashers Optimus Prime, Strongarm, Clampdown, Thunderhoof, Bisk and more!

Posted on 03-01-2015 at 03:23 AM by Sol Fury under Robots In Disguise (201x)
BB78749450569047_F50_D348442560_FF2 TFW2005 member Nevermore has done some sleuthing and uncovered a derth of information on the future of the Transformers Hero Mashers line.

The line will carry on for the forseeable future with Robots in Disguise themed releases, starting with the set of Bumblebee, Sideswipe and Steeljaw (who are out in Canada), and then continue with the three we saw at Toy Fair 2015 - Optimus Prime, Strongarm, and Clampdown. There's new images of the latter three, via Hasbro Canada, for you to enjoy.

From there Amazon Canada has posted listings of what appears to be six more releases in the line, which will give us Hero Mashers versions of characters like Quillfire, Thunderhoof, Fracture, Bixk (we assume they mean the lobster, Bisk), Jazz, and Drift.

It sounds as though the Hero Mashers have a long future ahead of them - and also, that this may be the only way for fans to get versions of some of these characters to add to their collection.

TFW's Robots in Disguise Drift In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 02-28-2015 at 12:40 PM by Sol Fury under Robots In Disguise (201x)
Drift-Robot-50 We're kicking off our galleries for the toys from the new Robots in Disguise show with a look at one of the guest Autobots - it's time for Drift to take the spotlight! Like his incarnation in Transformers Age of Extinction, this version of Drift is very strongly influenced by the look of Japanese samurai, though unlike the movie version, this Drift isn't wearing a facemask.

Robots in Disguise Drift is a Warrior class figure, transforming between robot and car mode in a handful of fairly simple steps. He's big and chunky, and definitely feels like a throwback to the simpler style of Transformers from the Transformers Armada / Cybertron days. The look is quite streamlined, giving the figure a very "animated" look to him.

Drift wields two swords, which he can stow in his waist armor in robot mode, and they fit beneath the car in vehicle mode. Drift has a decent range of articulation, and can strike some nice poses. All in all, he's a great representative of the Warrior size class. Check out his gallery and decide for yourself:

In memoriam - Leonard Nimoy

Posted on 02-27-2015 at 03:25 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Spock-Leonard-Nimoy We are sad to report that veteran actor Leonard Nimoy has passed away. Leonard Nimoy provided the voices of Sentinel Prime in Transformers Dark of the Moon and Galvatron in Transformers the Movie in 1986, but he will perhaps be best remembered for playing the role of the science officer of the Enterprise, Mr Spock, in Star Trek, in a role that spanned almost 50 years from his debut as the Vulcan in "The Cage" to his final appearance in "Star Trek Into Darkness".

On behalf of the site, of fans of science fiction, and anyone who has gazed skywards and imagined traveling the spaceways, we offer our condolences to Mr Nimoy's family, and we also warmly remember one of the greatest men to have graced our screens in both his acting and his voice acting roles.

Live long, and prosper.

Mairghread Scott and John Barber talk Combiner Wars

Posted on 02-27-2015 at 03:08 PM by Sol Fury under Comics
TF-Windblade01-CW-cvr-f30de Comic Book Resources have posted a new interview talking about the upcoming Combiner Wars crossover with creators Mairghread Scott and John Barber.

A few of the key points of the interview include:
  • The Combiner Wars will be on two fronts - both an information war, a "war of influence", and a physical war. Starscream is at the heart of all of it, of course - with Optimus, Windblade and Prowl all being key players.
  • Superion has a few new moves - he's described as a cross between "an NBA star and Godzilla"
  • The seeds of Combiner Wars have been sown since Windblade first appeared in Dark Cybertron.
  • On an unrelated note, we'll also be seeing more Transformers of more body types - not only female characters but more diversity in general, more religions, creeds and classes.


Check out the full interview at Comic Book Resources, which includes some spoilers for the background of the crossover event.

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,

TRANSFORMERS Legends Team"

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.

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. Check him out, and look forward to our own gallery of this guy and all the other new Combiner Wars releases!
