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

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.

DWA-Hasbro Merger Is In The Trash Can

Posted on 11-15-2014 at 01:38 AM by SilverOptimus under Other News
Scared_shrekless Hasbro has ended talks with DreamWorks Animation regarding their potential merger. It is said that a sudden drop of Market Share after the rumor has scared the Transformers Toy Maker to say "No" to the proposed merger. Disney; who roughly own 30% of Hasbro's business, also expressed a negative reaction to the deal.

"The breakup of the negotiations followed a sharp slide in Hasbro‘s shares after reports of the talks emerged late Wednesday. The toy maker’s shares had fallen nearly 5 percent since then, closing on Friday at $54.02. The fall in Hasbro’s share price was notable because the company had weighed paying both stock and cash, people briefed on the matter have said.

Also playing a role was a negative private reaction by the Walt Disney Company, which comprises roughly 30 percent of Hasbro’s business through licenses for “Star Wars,” Marvel characters, “Frozen” and the Disney Princesses toy line.

Disney was predictably upset that Hasbro would discuss a merger with DreamWorks Animation — its primary cartoon competitor — only weeks after the toy maker was given a lucrative Princesses contract, having taken it away from Mattel, one of these people said. As a toy partner, Hasbro receives early access to private information about films in Disney’s pipeline."

DreamWorks Animation & Hasbro In Merger Talks?

Posted on 11-12-2014 at 11:03 PM by Matty under Other News
yilcdfrgozgrthtczb4b A bit of interesting speculation is surfacing that revolves around supposed talks between Hasbro and DreamWorks Animation, a division of DreamWorks Studios. According to one article that has surfaced on Deadline, Deadline reports that "DreamWorks Animation is deeply engaged in two potentially game changing negotiations that could transform the company — including one with Hasbro to forge a family entertainment powerhouse to be called DreamWorks-Hasbro." The report claims that this deal is at least 60 days off, if it even happens, while both companies are not commenting on the matter and dismissing as rumor and speculation. You can read the full article here for more details.

You may recall that DreamWorks was involved in the production and distribution of the live action films Transformers (2007) and Revenge of the Fallen, while being somewhat involved in a lesser role with Dark of the Moon. It's not totally inconceivable that these two companies could potentially be in business discussions.

The biggest question circling around this rumor for now: what does this mean exactly? Is this Hasbro shifting away from physical toys and moving towards more entertainment routes? Will there now be more opportunities for Transformers toys? Are Transformers animation films now more plausible?

Time will tell, as for now this should be treated as a rumor. Speculate away TFW!

Platinum Optimus Prime with Trailer and Sideswipe Found At US Retail

Posted on 11-12-2014 at 02:48 PM by Matty under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
dDGw4Ju The first reported retail sighting of the Platinum Edition Optimus Prime with Sideswipe two-pack has been spotted! Found at a Toys R US in New York, this set features the First Edition Optimus Prime mold from the Age of Extinction toy line, a redeco of the MP-10 trailer, and a redeco of the Revenge of the Fallen Sideswipe mold for $196.99.

Transformers: Rising Mobile Game English Version Enters Beta Test Phase

Posted on 11-12-2014 at 03:35 AM by SilverOptimus under Video Games
TransformersRising Transformers: Legends Facebook Fan Page is informing us that DeNA has initiated the Beta Testing phase for the English Version of Transformers: Rising Mobile Game.

After the sudden announcement of the cancellation of G. I. Joe: Battlegrounds, Transformers fans were left wondering if the same fate would fall on Transformers: Legends as well. Announcement of a new game titled Transformers: Battle League by the same company didn't help the matter either.

A while back, Transformers: Rising was announced as well. However, Mobage stated that there is no need to panic; for Transformers: Rising is only targeted to the Asian audience. But this new development seems to be proving otherwise.

Currently, we have to look into another aspect as well… Combiner Wars. It was stated that Transformers: Legends game will play a certain role when Hasbro carries on with this new initiative in 2015. If you have been following Transformers: Rising game, there is already an event called Combiner Wars and Combiner Cards are available on Transformers: Rising whereas Transformers: Legends does not. We can speculate that this new game may be a way to incorporate Hasbro’s plans as a game.

If you want to be a beta tester for the game, Transformers: Legends Facebook Fan Page is giving a direct link to download the Android version of Transformers: Rising. No announcement for the iOS version yet.

RUMOR - Combiner Wars Titan Class Devastator Incoming?

Posted on 11-11-2014 at 11:42 PM by Mechafire under Generations / Classics
92951708-160a-456a-a6ea-90ed47657af4_zpsa838006e Rumors aplenty these days! This one should make all you combiner fans out there very happy. Following on from the recent Leader Class Ultra Magnus rumor, we now have a rumor originating from our own forums concerning a possible Combiner Wars Titan Class Devastator! This has been brought to us by two separate sources, and can be checked out in TFW's ongoing Combiner Wars speculation thread in the Toy Discussion forum.

Take this all with a grain of salt for now, but it it turns out to be legitimate, there is a chance it could be revealed around the time of one of next year's conventions. And of course, a big part of this is speculating as to the specifics of the release .

Transformers Robots In Disguise Preorders - New Toys Revealed

Posted on 11-06-2014 at 07:59 AM by SilverOptimus under Robots In Disguise (201x)
1415268555_22470_TAV06 Anime-Export has posted some preorders for the Transformers: Robots In Disguise toyline (Takara-Tomy). We've seen most of the figures before, but some figures are actually new. For the first time, we get to see Fixit in toy form. It seems as though he turns into some sort of a motorcycle. New Dinobots are also featured but based on the silhouettes they look as though some redecos of Transformers: Animated Swoop and Snarl. But it's hard to tell whether they are placeholder images or not.

The listing includes Warrior Class, One-Step Changers, Two-packs and Hyper Change class toys.

2005 Boards Member Jalaguy has a listed the following:

TAV-01 is Warrior Bumblebee
TAV-02 is Warrior Grimlock
TAV-03 is Warrior Strongarm (pictures are swapped for TAV02 & 03)
TAV-04 is Warrior Steeljaw
TAV-05 is a previously unseen One-Step Changer Fixit (same price as OSC Underbite)
TAV-06 is One-Step Changer Underbite
TAV-07 is Roadblock, a redeco of Thrilling 30 Deluxe Scoop!?
TAV-08 is R Strongarm, presumably some redeco of Warrior Strongarm
TAV-09 is Swoop, seemingly a redeco of Animated Deluxe Swoop
TAV-10 is Snarl, seemingly a redeco of Animated Deluxe Snarl
TAV-11 is Knock Out, a redeco of Beast Hunters Deluxe Knock Out
TAV-12 is Dreadwing, a redeco of Beast Hunters Deluxe Dreadwing

TAVVS-01 seems to be a two-pack of unchanged TAV-01 and -04
TAVVS-02 seems to be a two-pack of unchanged TAV-02 and -08

HA-01 is Hyperchange Hero/Three-Step Changer Bumblebee
HA-02 is Hyperchange Hero/Three-Step Changer Grimlock
HA-03 is One-Step Changer Sideswipe
HA-04 is AOE One-Step Changer Prowl
HA-05 is AOE Power Battler Junkheap, renamed as "Junkion"

Takara-Tomy Legends Tankor In-Hand Image with Box

Posted on 11-05-2014 at 02:34 PM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
kQYwooc Hisashi Yuki is teasing fans once again via his Twitter account, this time showing off the cool Japanese version of Generations Tankor. This version of Tankor is coming in the Transformers Legends line later this month in Japan, sporting more silver on his grey parts and a more muted blue compared to his Hasbro version - as well as a Vehicon tampograph on his shoulder. We've culled a few more comparison images shared by Mr Yuki over the past few days - plus one or two showing other upcoming releases such as Brainstorm.

Interestingly the box - for it looks like the Transformers Legends series is going with boxed releases for Deluxes - reuses the artwork of the Hasbro release, implying the same may also happen for other future releases in the Transformers Legends line.

Movie Dinobots Concept Artwork by Xylac Industries

Posted on 11-05-2014 at 02:22 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
tumblr_nekpy8YG4J1rsgh74o4_500 Concept artist Xylac Industries have shared some interesting pieces of concept artwork of the Dinobots, which they were commissioned to produce by Hasbro three years ago. It's mentioned that these artworks were not produced specifically for Transformers Age of Extinction but as a part of a wider study of a different aesthetic style for the Transformers live action movie universe. It's mentioned that the new aesthetics included "layering to see the inner mechanic structure under a transparent layer, organic shape to the Mechanic - Musculature, new silhouette, new panel segmentation styles, Organic forms and Muscle system."

Once again these are not specific Age of Extinction concept arts but ones produced to explore a new artistic direction. You might also find it interesting to know that all of these arts were produced in a tight two-week timeframe. Check them out!
