Transformers Song Universe and Music Matrix Cover Images

Posted on 08-28-2014 at 04:29 PM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
27463852d1409244576-new-japanese-transformers-dvd-cd-preorder-amazon-jp-8123wftgo6l_sl1500_ Amazon Japan have updated with cover images for the upcoming Transformers 30th anniversary special edition CD music collection Transformers Song Masterpiece and the DVD collection of all the show's many intros, Transformers Music Matrix.

Transformers Music Matrix is a DVD collecting clips of 55 openings and endings across the 30 year history of the franchise. Almost every opening and closing theme is represented - only "Big Bang", the first Japanese intro theme for Transformers Prime, is unrepresented. There are also some bonus additional tracks, alternate versions of the main intros to the original Generation 1 dub, Masterforce, the second intro and ending to Galaxy Force (Ignition and Growing Up, respectively) and Transformers Go. These bonus versions are almost certainly in respect of the fact that these series updated some of their opening and closing animations mid-season while keeping the same theme song. So other than Big Bang, this DVD seems to be a good representation of 30 years of Transformers cartoons. The cover features a montage of all the main Cybertron commanders from Generation 1 through to Zone.

Transformers Song Masterpiece is a similar deal, except as a four disc CD collection collecting the full-length Japanese songs for nearly every single Transformers opening and closing theme. The only absence again is "Big Bang". The cover to this one features Optimus Prime / Convoy in a stoic pose, with the rest of the label strongly inspired by the look of the Masterpiece toy packaging.

Both the CD boxed set and the DVD are due to release in Japan on September 17th - the 30th anniversary to the day of the premiere of the airing of the first Transformers cartoon.

TFW's Age of Extinction Optimus Prime Rusty Version (Toys R Us Japan Exclusive) Gallery

Posted on 08-27-2014 at 04:51 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
RustyOptimusPrime32_3 We've got another great Transformers toy gallery to share with you tonight. Courtesy of TFW2005 photo staff member SydneyY, we have a look at the Takara-Tomy Toys R Us exclusive Age of Extinction "Rusty Version" Optimus Prime!

Based on Optimus Prime's evasion mode, used to hide from those hunting him in the new movie, this Toys R Us Japan exclusive release recolors Optimus into a cream deco with plentiful "rust" paint applications. The truck mode is extremely effective in this deco! In robot mode, Optimus features a whole lot of white and looks a bit less "grimey" than his normal truck might. There's a new headsculpt used for this version of the toy too - a full on faceplate version of the movie Optimus head is featured here, rather than the "mouth" head of the mass retail releases.

All in all, this release features an excellent take on the truck mode, but we feel the robot mode might be a bit divisive come the finish. Check out the awesome photos that SydneyY has done for us and judge for yourself!

The leader class Bumblebee is the third Leader class toy released for the Age of Extinction line, and is a re-release of the Dark of the Moon toy, without the MechTech weapon.

Age of Extinction Platinum Silver Knight Optimus Prime Released in the US

Posted on 08-27-2014 at 02:46 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
27463527d1409119838-minnesota-transformers-sightings-image We've got a new Transformers toy sighting for you today folks. TFW2005 member Jertallica reports finding the Platinum Edition Silver Knight Optimus Prime at the Plymouth Target in Minnesota.

This Silver Knight Optimus Prime is a redeco of the huge First Edition Age of Extinction Optimus Prime. As you can see from Jertallica's pic, this figure has a striking mix of silver plastic and silver chrome. While it's not for everyone, this figure seems to be very much the definitive version of the Silver Knight Optimus Prime concept that Target has been running for their exclusives this movie.

TFW2005 Community Opinion Piece: Toys We Can't Put Down

Posted on 08-26-2014 at 12:00 PM by Secretcode under Site Updates
optimus_prime_voyager_box_1199643237 Last weekend, I asked the members of the TFW2005 forums about what toys they kept coming back to over the years and received some pretty surprising results with some very clear "winners".

This discussion wasn't just a one off experiment, as the very subject I asked the readers about was also aimed toward myself in this new opinion piece about the very same subject where I go over five Transformers toys I keep going back to again and again, and also share many of the responses from both the TFW2005 Forum and the TFW2005 Lounge as well as the final results of the poll!

Josh Feldman Joins Hasbro Studios Following The Success Of Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction

Josh-Feldman-Hasbro-Studios-Transformers Hasbro Studios scored a major win today by bringing in Josh Feldman to the team for a new position titled head of development of the company's film and TV division.

"With his tremendous experience in brand-focused film storytelling, Josh is ideally suited for this role as we look to expand our feature business," which includes a third 'G.I. Joe' film, says Stephen Davis; president of Hasbro Studios and global entertainment and licensing for Hasbro.

Masterpiece Star Saber Prototype Images from Dengeki Hobby Magazine

Posted on 08-24-2014 at 10:29 AM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
Ke4sUdW Japanese hobby magazine Dengeki Hobby has some new images of the prototype of the Masterpiece Fan's Choice figure, Star Saber. The commander of the Cybertrons in the Japanese continuity, Star Saber is loaded with features authentic to the original toy.

Of note is that the Brainmaster figure is present - as we saw in previous images - and there is a demonstration of how the Brainmaster feature works this time out. Unlike the original - where the smaller robot's face was within the Brainmaster figure - this time out it seems like the face is within the robot, with the Brainmaster merely fitting in the chest. This does make the Saber portion of Star Saber somewhat animation-accurate, though.

The combination of smaller Saber robot and V-Star booster module for the larger Star Saber robot are also demonstrated, along with the lateral arm movement of the full Star Saber figure. There's also a look at some more dynamic poses from both Saber and Star Saber, plus concealed rocket pods for the jet mode - again, all of this seems to be very heavily taken from the look of Star Saber in the animation.

Check out the scans - coming at you via Taghobby - attached to this post.

Transformers Cloud Energon Ironhide and Hellwarp

Posted on 08-23-2014 at 08:13 AM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
P1010669 Via Dengeki Hobby, we have our first look at the next two releases in the Transformers Cloud series. On the Autobot side we have Roadbuster, a Transformers Energon Ironhide themed repaint of Generations Roadbuster. He's the fourth wave's Takara-Tomy Mall exclusive, and works shockingly well in the Energon Ironhide deco.

On the Decepticon side we have Hellwarp, a Skywarp themed recolor of Generations Skybyte. Hellwarp is the E-Hobby exclusive of the fourth set of Cloud releases. He's got an involved backstory - while Hellwarp is a complete 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.

Check out the full gallery on Dengeki Hobby, which includes new pics of the previous six Cloud releases as well.

Platinum Edition Optimus Prime & Sideswipe In-Hand

Posted on 08-22-2014 at 11:19 AM by Mechafire under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
c098 TFW2005 boards member griffin-of-oz is here to bring us an in-hand look at the Transformers: Age of Extinction Platinum Edition Optimus Prime & Sideswipe set. He offers us a gallery of the figures, showing them off with some comparisons, as well as a writeup detailing the set.

If you thought the original First Edition Optimus Prime figure had a lot of chrome, think again, because this version has even more of it, along with an alternate faceplated head sculpt. Also coming in the set is a recolor of the trailer from MP-10, as well as a Sideswipe who is quite similar to the ROTF Swerve figure.

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!

"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!"
