Transformers Rescue Bots Season 4 Confirmed

Posted on 03-31-2015 at 04:09 PM by Sol Fury under Rescue Bots
image0041-350x262 Good news, Rescue Bots fans - Transformers Rescue Bots is primed to get a fourth season. Rumours that the show might end with season 3 had been circulating with the Hasbro Studios webpage listing the show only had three seasons, but a press release today on the Discovery Family Channel corporate website talks about the network's 2015-16 season - and among the listings is one for a Transformers Rescue Bots Season 4.

While this is not completely unexpected - Hasbro have gone on record saying the show is popular among younger age groups - it was never a certainty given the show has more than hit that magic number of episodes to put it into syndication.

With this news, it also means that Transformers Rescue Bots is poised to overtake Transformers Generation 1's record for number of 22 minute episodes, assuming this fourth season is 26 episodes long like the previous ones.

First Look at Hallmark's 2015 G1 Megatron Ornament

Posted on 03-31-2015 at 03:30 PM by Matty under Generation 1
27507523d1427825288-2015-hallmark-g1-transformers-megatron-sneak-peak-2015megatron It's not too early to start thinking about Christmas time, right? Either way, Hallmark is starting to show off some sneak peaks of their upcoming 2015 line up. You may recall last year Transformers fans were treated to a Generation 1 Optimus Prime ornament, it goes without saying that Prime would of course need his nemesis to battle with while hanging from the tree. Thanks to Hooked On Hallmark, we have our first look at the Generation 1 Megatron ornament.

No prices or release date info is released yet, but make the jump for now to share some initial thoughts.

Botcon 2015 First Toy Reveal - Packrat from Generations Rattrap

Posted on 03-31-2015 at 01:53 PM by Sol Fury under Conventions
CBcswcmVEAAE9vE Botcon have revealed the first toy for their 2015 convention in St Charles, Illinois. The first of the five to be revealed is "The Thief", a new version of classic Botcon character Packrat, who was a blue version of Rattrap - and so, in that same vein, this new Packrat is a blue recolor of the Generations Rattrap.

Check out the review video below, and watch this space for future convention reveals as well as the all-important registration, which we hope with less than three months to go until the convention will be posted soon.

Transformers: Robots In Disguise Sideswipe Concept Art

CBDiAVQUUAA_rb- Following the concept art reveal of Underbite, Film illustrator & Director Augusto Barranco has shared several concept images of Transformers: Robots In Disguise Sideswipe.

It's interesting to note that the character started out as Fastlane, which would explain the immature nature of the character.

Movie Optimus Prime Ultimate Edition New Images

This release is a goliath, coming with a premium paint job, and including all the accessories of the Japan exclusive Striker Optimus Prime and Jetwings Optimus Prime from Dark of the Moon, along with the sword and hook accessories that were offered as purchase incentives. It is, quite possibly, the single most accessory-heavy Movie Optimus ever released, and if you are looking for a definitive version of the character, have the money, and somehow don't own a version of Revenge of the Fallen Optimus Prime yet, this may well be the one for you.

TFW's Combiner Wars Breakdown In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 03-29-2015 at 01:28 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Breakdown-Robot-41 We've shown you Dead End, Dragstrip and Offroad - now we are rounding out the four Stunticon limbs with Breakdown! Combiner Wars Breakdown is a Lamborghini Countach, a very slick car that was also used for Generation 1 Sideswipe - and with the head sculpt looking particularly Sideswipe-ish, we'd imagine this one is getting a straight repaint into Sideswipe down the road.

Breakdown's robot mode transformation is fairly simple, as with most of the Combiner Wars Deluxes, and it gives him big boots and relatively thin arms. It sounds like a hideous look, but it works and does not look too awkwardly proportioned - and as a bonus, gives him a nice wide base to stand on, making posing easy. Breakdown's weapon is rather cool - it's a gunblade, a weapon that works equally well as a sword as it does a gun. As an added bonus, the foot for the Menasor mode attaches to his back in robot mode (which again, would work for a Sideswipe release).

Overall, Breakdown is another great release in the Combiner Wars series. He's got a great weapon, a killer vehicle mode, and is extremely faithful to Generation 1 Breakdown. Check out our gallery and see what you think.

Transformers: Robots In Disguise Hyper Change Hero Sideswipe Confirmed

Posted on 03-29-2015 at 11:02 AM by SilverOptimus under Robots In Disguise (201x)
Transformers-Robots-In-Disguise-Hyper-Change-Hero-Three-Steps-Sideswipe Earlier this year a rumor of a possible Three-Step Changer Sideswipe was revealed thanks to a toy transformation scheme diagram leak. Today, 2005 Boards Member Nevermore in bringing us a toy listing at Toys"R"Us Iceland, confirming the existence of Transformers: Robots In Disguise Hyper Change Hero Sideswipe.

The TRU listing does not contain a product image but rather placehoder images of Hyper Change Hero Bumblebee, Grimlock and Optimus Prime. It is interesting to see that the transformation scheme diagram Sideswipe sports his mask and we are yet to see if it is true on the final product.

PaperFormed Racing Warrior - a Papercraft Drift

Posted on 03-28-2015 at 07:19 PM by Sol Fury under Other News
racing_warrior-robot Here is something which is particularly cool, that we thought we might share with you. A few years ago when IDW introduced Drift into their comics, one dedicated fan made his own fully transformable Drift out of paper. It was an extremely cool piece of artwork, which attendees of Botcon 2009 in Pasadena might remember seeing entered into that year's art contest.

Flash forward to today, and the designs of this awesome custom have now been made available to purchase for a modest amount. You can now make your own papercraft Drift, or "Racing Warrior" as he is referred to here, who transforms without removing any parts. It's made up of 202 pieces, spread across six sheets. It's what is classed as an "expert" level build, and speaking as someone who saw the original in person, it is an amazing piece once it is fully assembled.

Generations Cyber 11 Assortment Bumblebee and Optimus Prime New Images

Posted on 03-28-2015 at 06:18 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Cyber_11_inch_Series_Optimus_Prime_1 Via Brazilian retailer Hobby Brinquedos has posted some new images of the upcoming Generations Cyber 11 Assortment. These are 11 inch figures, done in the style of the Cyberverse figures from previous lines. The figures featured here are Bumblebee and Optimus Prime, who appear to be borrowing a few cues from their Robots in Disguise Legion figures, at least as far as the general transformation schemes appear to go.

While some might gnash their teeth at the simplicity of the offerings, the simplicity would appear to be the virtue in this case - plus the designs look rather cool, and are certainly solid offerings, although we're not sure if they have knees. Check them out, attached to this post.

Masterpiece Star Saber Tops Japanese Sales Charts

Posted on 03-27-2015 at 04:56 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
tfmp24 Here is an interesting nugget of news we thought to share with you. Japanese retailer Toynes produces a weekly "top 5" of best selling items, and for the week of March 16 to March 22, the toy topping the charts is Masterpiece Star Saber - and considering that he only came out on 21 March unlike the rest of the chart, this is really impressive.

Of course, it is hard to judge if this surge was down to preorders, or whether this was purely in-store purchases, but in either case, it paints a very healthy picture for Masterpiece Star Saber's sales, and - dare we say - portends well for other fan-favorites getting the Masterpiece treatment down the line.

Akiva Goldsman Hired For A Transformers Cinematic Universe

Posted on 03-27-2015 at 03:25 PM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Akiva-Goldsman-Transformers-5 Paramount Pictures is launching a cinematic universe around its blockbuster Transformers property that will be overseen by Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman, Deadline reports. It is stated that the Transformers Franchise will follow a Cinematic Universe, very much like the current Marvel, DC and Star Wars franchises. The series is said to have Sequels as well as Spin-offs.

Mr. Goldsman has worked on famous scripts such as A Beautiful Mind, The Da Vinci Code and I Am Legend as well as the infamous Batman & Robin.

"Taking a page from Fox’s incubation of three Avatar sequels and what Disney is doing to revive Star Wars with a sequels and spinoffs, the studio is negotiating with Akiva Goldsman to work with franchise director Michael Bay, exec producer Steven Spielberg and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura to organize a “writer’s room” that will incubate ideas for a potential multi-part Transformers sequel, and come up with potential spinoff films based on the billion-dollar franchise culled from the Hasbro toy line." says Deadline. "The Transformers expansion signals that Paramount is serious about competing with its studio peers when it comes to broadening big franchise properties." says TheWrap.

Angry Birds: Transformers Update Brings New Characters And New Features

Posted on 03-27-2015 at 06:43 AM by SilverOptimus under Video Games
Angry-Birds-Transformers-Stella-Arcee Angry Birds: Transformers Mobile Game was updated today, bringing new characters and new areas to unlock.

Strangely, no official notice was made regarding the update other than the fact that a Bug Fix was done to improve the stability and performance. However, 2005 Boards Member MrByatis is bringing us the information and images from the update.

First of all, two new characters are introduced to the game and both of them represented by Stella. One character is Blackarachnia from Transformers: Animated and the other one being Arcee (finally!!!) who was teased for so long on the old Loading Screen. Rovio released two games based on Stella recently and we can assume that this is the reason why Arcee was delayed.

Other features include:
  • New areas to be unlocked on the map
  • New Challenges
  • Skywarp Airfield Repair Functionality (requires 5000 coins)
  • New Loading Screen image
  • New Jenga modes
  • Character weapons and abilities changed
  • New character animations when thanking buddies

Update: We have an update for the Angry Birds: Transformers game update (Ha!). 2005 Boards Member Cax6ton is informing us that the long awaited Cloud Saving feature is now active on the game (again, finally!). Hopefully this means no more lost progress due to various circumstances such as game updates, OS updates and random loss of game data.

The new update is rolling out on the Android platform at the moment and our members who are using the iOS platform confirmed that the update is not yet available for them. Patience, folks… it will come.

Check out the screenshots by MrByatis, after the jump.

TFW's Combiner Wars Dead End In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 03-26-2015 at 06:06 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Dead-End-Robot-27 With the news that we are getting a Combiner Wars Wildrider as a repaint of Dead End, now seemed like a great time to share a look at Combiner Wars Dead End!

Dead End is a sports car, and a sharp looking one at that. The robot transformation is actually quite straightforward, but one thing I liked on the transformation was the way the legs rotated around, in a manner that somewhat recalls the style of the original toy's transformation. Robot mode is decent, with a good range of articulation, and big feet mean it is easy to pose Dead End. Special mention should go to the glorious shade of red used, which nicely evokes the deco of the original Dead End. I also liked his weapon, a smokestack. Among a line of toys with huge guns, swords, guns that double up as swords and so forth, it is refreshing to see a character going to battle with what is, essentially, a lead pipe to bludgeon his enemies.

Overall, the Combiner Wars Dead End is a decent release. He's solid and has some cool touches. Check out our gallery and see for yourself:

Record Store Day 2015 exclusive: Shockwave discography

Posted on 03-26-2015 at 06:04 PM by KidDynamite under Other News
shockwave_1 Now here's an interesting entry, and something of a blast from the past. Revelation Records has announced a Record Store Day 2015 vinyl reissue of the entire discography of the 90's era Erie PA hardcore band Shockwave. For those that don't remember, Shockwave was a Transformers themed band through and through, with albums and songs named after Transformers, G1 audio samples, and a band logo featuring a masked Decepticon symbol.

The record is called The World is Ours: The Complete Recordings and is on double clear vinyl 12" in a gatefold sleeve. In a really nice touch, it also includes a clear red flexi 7" that can be used as a tech spec decoder on the album art.


This looks like a really nice and certainly unexpected release from this long dormant band. Check out the reveal video after the jump.

According to the web page, it looks like this will be a limited release of about 2,000 and available in Japan, likely as a web or other type of exclusive, so it may be one of the more difficult pieces to obtain.

Posted on 03-25-2015 at 06:42 PM by Sol Fury under Comics
cover225x225 The highly anticipated More than Meets the Eye #39 is coming in two weeks time, on April 8th - and iTunes has just added a preview of this next instalment of the saga. Issue #39 is titled "Return of the D.J.D." and delivers on that promise from the word go, with the members of the Decepticon punishment squad appearing prominently in these three pages. Fans be warned, there's something of a spoiler on page 3 - though those who enjoy trying to put all the pieces of the plot together will eat this one right up!

Mark your calendars, it's April 8th for More than Meets the Eye #39, the return of the Decepticon Justice Division, and the introduction of Deszaras / Deathsaurus into the IDW Transformers universe!

Transformers Facebook Teases Combiner Wars Quickslinger & Brake-Neck - Update: Fully Revealed!

Posted on 03-24-2015 at 04:09 PM by Mechafire under Generations / Classics
0 The official Transformers Facebook page has just posted something many fans will be delighted to see - following up on our news from yesterday, they've now teased the rumored and highly-anticipated Combiner Wars Quickslinger and Brake-Neck, who are the renamed Slingshot and Wildrider.

The photo that's been posted reads "The rumors are true." They also say "Yes, they’re coming. You know the names: Brake-Neck and Quickslinger. Want to see the faces?" This also gives us a peak at the figures' packaging.

A few TFW2005 boards members - artiepants and Shin-Gouki - also put the image into Photoshop, giving us a small glimpse of their vehicle modes. As many had been expecting, it looks as though Quickslinger will be a redeco of Firefly, with Brake-Neck being a redeco of Dead End. You can see for yourself after the break!

Keep an eye out, as it looks like we may be getting a full reveal soon!

Update: Aaand that was fast - they've now been fully revealed, confirming our previous speculation:

"Ask, and you shall receive. Here are the Generations Combiner Wars Quickslinger and Brake-Neck. They’ll be joining the battle and hitting online retailers in May!"

Mark your calendars for May, folks! It also sounds like they may be online exclusives - we'll keep you updated as to which retailers will be carrying them if so!

Diamond Listing - Combiner Wars Slingshot and Wildrider

Posted on 03-23-2015 at 02:39 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
unwarsuperion9_1424037410 Friend of TFW D-Drive has sent us some truly awesome news! It seems like a Generations Slingshot and Wildrider - using the names Quickslinger and Brake-Neck - might be on the horizon and arriving in our collections this side of the summer!

While searching the Diamond site I found these 2 listings.

TRANSFORMERS GEN DLX QUICKSLINGER AF CS
TRANSFORMERS GEN DLX BRAKE-NECK AF CS

It would appear Brake-Neck/Wildrider and Quickslinger/Slingshot come in cases of 8 of the same figure, retail for $17.99, and have a ship date right now of May 27th 2015.


It's worth noting that Quickslinger and Brake-Neck are previously established substitutes for Slingshot and Wildrider, used for the Bot Shot and Kre-O versions of the characters in the past.

TFW's Combiner Wars Offroad In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 03-22-2015 at 03:04 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Offroad-Robot-30 It's time for some more in-hand galleries of the Combiner Wars toys, and with the recent announcement of a Menasor set for Japan, now seemed like a great time to take a look at the Stunticon Japan is not getting - Offroad!

Like Alpha Bravo, Offroad is a newcomer to the established combiner team, and his bio even pays tribute to that fact. He's visually got Wildrider's deco in truck mode, but in robot mode he has a nice shade of turquoise to break up the grey, which works great for him. Offroad also shares a bunch of cues with Generation 1 Crankcase, which some fans have picked up on, particularly in his robot mode.

As a toy, Offroad is good. He's got a full range of movement other than ankles in his legs, including a waist swivel. The arms feature a similar range of movement, but the sides of the truck on his shoulders can catch on the front of the truck on his back - but not as much as you might think, they actually have a very good range of movement. What I particularly love is that the head is on a balljoint, and has enough movement to be posed looking up or down, or even cocked sideways, which together with the wonderful personality captured in the headsculpt really gives Offroad a lot of character.

As you might have guessed, I really like this one, not only as a member of the Stunticons, but as an individual toy in his own right. Even if he gets displaced from my Menasor by an eventual Wildrider, I'm still planning to keep Offroad in my collection display for his own sake. Check out the gallery and see for yourself:

First Image of Takara Transformers Legends LG13 Megatron

Posted on 03-21-2015 at 06:24 PM by Mechafire under Japanese Transformers
CAm-1tjU8AAgCv9png_large Thanks to T_soiya on Twitter, we now have our first look at Takara's Transformers Legends LG13 Megatron, which is the Generations Leader Megatron figure done up in a relatively similar, albeit a slightly different, color scheme.

Notable differences include the lack of red on the inner arms, the plastic on the joints being cast in grey rather than red, having the orange, purple, and red chest detail paint apps removed, and also having red paint added to the sides of the torso.

Is this small amount of differences enough to get you to spring for the Japanese version of this figure? Let us know after the jump!
