Combiner Wars Dragstrip In-Hand Images

Posted on 11-28-2014 at 05:57 AM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
15274954614_96364714d7_b Via Blacklai and Cybergeeks Alliance on Facebook, we have a look at the new Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Dragstrip in hand. The Decepticon is the first of the four members of the Stunticons to appear in the Deluxe class, and should be hitting shelves in the new year.

These images show us both modes of the Stunticon, along with a look at how the combiner accessory part can form both a hand and a foot (the foot then seems to double as a shield for the robot mode).

Check out the images and see what you think.

Lucky Draw Gold Age of Extinction High Octane Bumblebee

Posted on 11-27-2014 at 02:07 PM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
gdbb Here is a new twist on Lucky Draw Transformers, friends. We've seen Lucky Draws given away through tokens obtained by buying retail Transformers, Lucky Draws obtained by mailing in a token in a book or just a simple blind draw. But now Takara-Tomy has upped the ante in a new way.

This gold version of Age of Extinction's High Octane Bumblebee will be given away in a draw conducted on Twitter - which we think is a first for Transformers Prize Campaigns on its own. But it's also what you have to do to compete that is unique.

Nippon Television Network is running a program called "Real Robot Battle" - a show that pits teams and their home-built robots against each other. In Tuesday 2 December the finale of the show will air, with the winning team going on to face Optimus Prime himself in a special exhibition battle!

The contest - which is open to Japanese residents only - is to tweet their predictions for which of the six competing teams will win the contest and see if they have the touch when it comes to facing the heroic Autobot leader himself!

Full details are on the Takara-Tomy page for this event (Japanese language) - and yes, it sounds as though this gold Age of Extinction Bumblebee is going to be one of a kind.

Cloud Rodimus and Shockwave In-hand Images

Posted on 11-27-2014 at 11:32 AM by optimusfan under Japanese Transformers
B3bCycgCYAA19JX In-hand images surfaced on Twitter overnight of the just released Cloud Rodimus and Shockwave. These repaints of Generations Springer and Whirl (respectively) continue Takara's trend of odd and perhaps inspired use of existing molds in the Cloud line.

First up is Rodimus, arguably the most anticipated of the line to date. The figure is the closest rendition to the co-captain (not even a proper rank!) of More Than Meets The Eye's Lost Light fans have received to date.

As noted, Shockwave is a repaint of fellow empurata victim Whirl. The figure features Shockwave's classic purple deco and single yellow eye, and looks surprisingly convincing despite being a dramatically different take on the character.

Check out these and many more images in the thread below. Also, look for both of these figures to be hitting major retailers soon!

The event will begin in few hours.

"The DECEPTICONS attempt to get their hands on the plasma energy chamber, in order to further their goal of universal conquest. But HIGHBROW, CHROMEDOME, BRAINSTORM, and HARDHEAD recover the key and escape the depths of Cybertron in their overcharged ship. Sent spinning out of control, the ship ends up crash landing on Earth, leaving the AUTOBOTS badly in need of repair.

Working together with some anti-Earth government forces, the duo prepare to ambush HIGHBROW and his allies.

Meanwhile, some agents of the Earth Defense Command have found the crashed Cybertonian ship and begin to render aid. Just as the AUTOBOTS are getting back on their feet, the DECEPTICONS and their partners begin their brutal assault.

Will HIGHBROW and the Earth Defense Command master their fighting abilities and prevail over the DECEPTICONS? Or will APEFACE and SKULLCRUNCHER crush the heads of their AUTOBOT foes and eliminate the E.D.F.? Find out on TRANSFORMERS: LEGENDS – “Last Stand of the Earth Defense Command”!"

Masterpiece Grimlock Released in Poland

mp-grim-box Fresh off of the news yesterday about Masterpiece Grimlock's release in Germany, we have more sightings news regarding everyone's favorite dinosaur, this time being a retail release in Poland. According to TFW2005 board member Wallas, this is actually the second wave of Grimlock's spotted, which hopefully bodes well for availability if you have not yet scored one. The push towards a wider European market release for these Masterpiece figures also hopefully spells good news for future releases and the ease of which to purchase them.

• The development for Arcee
• The process of working with Hasbro (she was originally intended to be remolded into a Blurr figure, but the idea was dropped)
• Making sure Arcee looked like her cartoon incarnation
• The differences between the Takara and Hasbro versions
• Arcee's vehicle mode and the transformation process
• Kobayashi's scratch-built Arcee and how it helped him get a job at Takara, plus how it influenced Legends/Generations Arcee
• The possibility of a Headmaster Arcee being released in the future
• The figures Kobayashi would like to see in the future

TFW's Generations Brainstorm In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 11-23-2014 at 03:12 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Brainstorm-Robot-50 We've got another great new Generations toy gallery to share with you. This time out, we have a gallery of a Headmaster and the Lost Light's mad scientist in residence - Brainstorm!

Generations Brainstorm does a grand job of updating the chunky original Generation 1 Brainstorm and his boxy proportions with a more modern and decidedly less boxy appearance, based on the More than Meets the Eye comic. It gives Brainstorm a very striking silhouette - this toy looks extremely good in both modes!

Brainstorm is also fun to fiddle with. As with most modern toys, he lacks waist articulation, and his wrists do not rotate, but everything else is there - including ball-jointed head articulation, which is cleverly incorporated into the Headmaster gimmick. Arcana has limited articulation when he's not being Brainstorm's noggin, with just his arms and head (!) being poseable. One word of warning - watch the blue-green paint on Arcana's legs, it seems to chip very easily.

Overall, Brainstorm looks great and is fun to play with. He's one of the most dynamic looking Voyagers to come out what has been an excellent year for the size class, capturing the spirit of the character extremely well and generally being a good, fun toy. Be a smart robin and check out the gallery to see for yourself:

Transformers: Rising Mobile Game Soundtrack Info

Posted on 11-23-2014 at 03:00 PM by SilverOptimus under Video Games
tfr_banner-960x500 Bets testing for the Transformers: Rising (English Version) is now over. Shanghai based outsourcing sound studio GameAudioLab has revealed some info about the game's soundtrack and some samples. Hopefully they’ll release the entire game music album one day.

"Game Audio Lab worked on China’s #1 Transformers game: “Transformers: Rising”.

With stunning music – mix of orchestral and electronic elements – and entertaining futuristic sound effects, our main challenge was to create a unique sound experience for gamers while keeping consistency with the existing Transformers’ audio identity.

This challenge was accomplished within 3 months.

“Transformers: Rising” is now one of the most played and famous mobile game over China, Hong Kong and Taiwai, with monthly revenue of 10 million RMB (approximately 1.67 million US dollars), marking the peak of DeNA China’s revenue of this year."

Q Transformers Movie and Generation 1 Series Wave 1 Official Images

Posted on 11-23-2014 at 11:30 AM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
Q-Rodimus-Robot Via Autobase Aichi's Facebook feed, we've got some nice official images to share with you of the Takara-Tomy Q Transformers. On show here we have official images of the first waves of both the movie series and also the Generation 1 series.

Each of the figures transforms from a cutesified version of their robot modes into Choro Q versions of their vehicle modes. This is a fitting bit of parallelism, since over 30 years ago before Transformers got started, some of Takara's earlier transforming robot toys were Choro Q vehicles in their Micro Change line - which would eventually become the Generation 1 Minibots. That means the Generation 1 Bumblebee in this series has gone full circle!

The Generation 1 series on show here includes Rodimus, Prowl, Sideswipe and Bumblebee. The Movie series includes Optimus Prime, Crosshairs, Lockdown and Bumblebee. These first two waves of figures are due out next month, in December 2014.

Clarification - Masterpiece Ultra Magnus in Australia

Posted on 11-23-2014 at 10:13 AM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
Hasbro_MP_Magnus_1416593269 Courtesy of TFW2005 member and Ozformers administrator griffin-of-oz, we can post some clarification to our earlier report of Masterpiece Ultra Magnus' release in Australia next year:
  1. Kelvin Chan is not the artist for this project, but rather wrote the English language bio of the instruction booklet.
  2. Masterpiece Ultra Magnus is getting a limited Australian release of just 400 pieces. This release is 400 pieces of the Hong Kong / Hasbro Asia release of the Japanese Masterpiece Ultra Magnus, in a similar style to previous releases of other Masterpieces in Australia - such as the original Masterpiece MP-2 Ultra Magnus release.
  3. Masterpiece Ultra Magnus will arrive in Australia in early February, will be released in two batches (250 in February 2015 and 150 on 4 April 2015), and will retail for AU$299.99. He'll be available through Toys R Us Australia.
  4. It should go without saying as this is an import of the Japanese toy, but this does not relate to a US release.

It should also be noted this is not a rumor - this is confirmed, via a listing in Toys R Us Australia's computers relayed via Ozformers member Sinnertwin.

A big thanks to Griffin for the clarification!

Masterpiece Exhaust / Marlboor - Unable to be sold in the USA?

Posted on 11-21-2014 at 07:28 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
mp-235_1410200032 Troubling news comes to us via our sponsors Big Bad Toy Store. Masterpiece MP-23 Exhaust - who is based on the Diaclone "Marlboro" Wheeljack - apparently cannot be sold legally in the USA.

The problem comes from the fact that Exhaust uses a shape on his design - the rectangle with a triangular portion removed from the bottom - which is alleged to infringe the trade dress of Marlboro & Phillip Morris USA. Under the Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement, these marks cannot be used on products that could be intended for children.

(You could make an argument for Exhaust being an "adult collectable" as he is a part of the high-end Masterpiece series, but ultimately the wider Transformers brand is targeted at children, and there's where the "could be intended" part swings in and catches this one).

The upshot of all this is that Big Bad Toy Store has been asked to remove listings for Exhaust, and have complied - anyone who preordered has been transferred to a non-public listing on the off chance that Takara-Tomy alters the deco; should this not happen (and this fan thinks it is unlikely) Big Bad Toy Store will refund preorders as they, and potentially other USA based online retailers, will not be able to sell Masterpiece Exhaust in the USA.

Posted on 11-21-2014 at 01:02 PM by Matty under Transformers Masterpiece
Hasbro_MP_Magnus An interesting piece of Masterpiece Ultra Magnus news just surfaced via Kelvin Chan's Facebook page. Kelvin Chan will be providing an English translation of the bio for MP Ultra Magnus for its Australian release. Let's get right to what's been said:

Okay, I can FINALLY reveal my secret now. The work that I did for Hasbro was working on the booklet for the Hasbro release of MASTERPIECE ULTRA MAGNUS. This toy is scheduled to be released in Hasbro Hong Kong's markets first on December 27, with the Australian release being April 2015.

It looks to be exclusive to Toys R Us. Price will be AU$299.99
SKN 086323


It is worth noting that this is a specific release for Australia, who import items for their market via Hasbro Hong Kong, which can include any of the Japanese market releases that Hasbro Hong Kong brings forward.

Steve Jablonsky Explains Why Transformers: Age Of Extinction Score Was Removed From iTunes

Posted on 11-20-2014 at 03:30 PM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
AgeofExtinctionScore Composer Steve Jablonsky updated his Facebook Page to explain why Transformers: Age Of Extinction Score was removed from iTunes:

"Now because you guys are so awesome, the TF4 score hit 15,000 units really quickly. I honestly had no idea the score had been pulled down until fans started contacting me asking why the soundtrack had vanished from iTunes, only a couple months after the release of the film. I suspected the 15k limit was the reason, a little investigation proved that to be the case."

Toys 'R Us Japan November Exclusives New Images - Micron Carnivac and Rollbar

Posted on 11-16-2014 at 07:54 PM by Matty under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
Micron-Carnivac Thanks to the Facebook page of Autobase Aichi, we have new images of two Toys 'R Us Japan exclusives. The first new batch of images are of the Micron Carnivac, which is a dual homage of Carnivac, the Decepticon Pretender, and of course Lockdown's wolf-minions from the most recent Transformers blockbuster Age of Extinction (also known as Steeljaw). Carnivac is available in Japan with a purchase of Transformers product at TRU, while supplies last.

The second group of images is of Rollbar, essentially the rally race car of Shane Dyson from AOE. This figure appears to be the same figure that can be found in the Breakout Battle (AKA farmageddon) set. Rollbar will be an exclusive release in Japan through TRU stores.

Check out the thread for Carnivac here, and head over to discuss Rollbar with the discussion link below.
