Masterpiece Bumblebee In-Hand Images

Posted on 10-23-2014 at 06:52 AM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
27475270d1414056949-mp-21-masterpiece-bumblebee-99_117112_5ef363504b213f5 Happy Thursday! We've got some great in-hand images of Masterpiece Bumblebee to share with you this morning, courtesy of dlarirang from ACToys!

You can see from these images that Masterpiece Bumblebee is appropriately short for his diminutive stature - he's around the size of a small deluxe. Worry not though because dlarirang reports that the transformation is satisfyingly complicated particularly with respect of the legs. The color is also described as being fairly close to the orange end of yellow - no bright yellow Bees here! It's noted that the fists are different from past Masterpieces and are a solid piece, without articulated fingers likely owing to the smaller size.

Check out the images after the break and get excited for the Masterpiece series release of the little yellow 'bot!

Takara-Tomy Legends Convoy (Optimus Primal) In-Hand Images

Posted on 10-23-2014 at 06:15 AM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
hnCTn4q Via the twitter account of Yuki Ohshima we have some in-hand images of the Transformers Legends LG-02 Convoy aka Optimus Primal. This new release of the original 1996 Ultra Class toy from Beast Wars features the tweaked tooling originally used when the mold was rereleased in 2006 for the Beast Wars 10th Anniversary. For those unfamiliar, Yuki Ohshima was the artist who the Kiss Players manga, and designed the female characters for that series. Looks like he is on art for this new line - which could be interesting once the female Autobots come around... !

Takara-Tomy's own PR twitter has also released an in-box image of both Convoy and Rattle (Rattrap) along with the original teaser image of the femmebots Arcee, Windblade and Chromia, now un-silhouetted!

Loyal Subjects Jetfire

B0l-UuqCYAAj7Az The Loyal Subjects just posted via Twitter a teaser of what seems to be our first glimpse of possibly one of their wave 4 figures, Jetfire, along side a fan's sketch of the character. This is pretty exciting considering wave 3 is not released yet, nor is the full listing of characters for the wave. Another interesting thing is that on the side of Jetfire there is a hole for a button. A similar hole was used for Wave 2's Optimus Prime's speech box.

New Upcoming Takara Figure Images - Armor Knight Optimus Prime, Legends Fembots, And More

Posted on 10-21-2014 at 11:16 PM by Mechafire under Japanese Transformers
fo20113 Via TAG Hobby, we have new images from the latest Figure King magazine, showing off a few upcoming Takara Transformers. Among them are some new looks at the the Armor Knight Optimus Prime, Legends Arcee, Chromia and Windblade, Black Knight Dinobots Scorn, Strafe, and Slug, and also in-package shots of Masterpiece Bumblebee and a few other upcoming Takara Legends releases.

As can be seen here, all of these figures are done up to be more accurate to their past fictional depictions - Optimus has extensive remolding to resemble how he looked in AOE more, Arcee and Chromia have been colored to better match their G1 cartoon appearances, and Windblade has paint apps specifically matching the way she's been drawn by Sarah Stone in the IDW comics.

A few interesting tidbits can also be gleaned from what we see of Armor Knight Optimus here - it seems his face does not change by way of a simple removable faceplate as many had speculated, but by having two alternate faces built into his head. He also appears to have new boxart and comes already-posed in his famous AOE stance in the box.

Check 'em out and discuss after the break!

Q Transformers New Figures Revealed

Posted on 10-21-2014 at 07:57 PM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
r4fYLaC Our sponsors Big Bad Toy Store have listed a whole bunch of preorders for the Q Transformers series. These preorders cover the next couple assortments of these Transformers who convert into Choro Q styled vehicles.

In sequence, we have:

Q Transformers Movie Series 1 - assortment contains Age of Extinction Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Crosshairs and Lockdown

Q Transformers Generation 1 Series 1 - featuring Generation 1 inspired versions of Prowl, Sideswipe, Bumblebee and Hot Rod / Rodimus

Q Transformers Series 2 - features Wheeljack, Jazz, Red Alert, Sunstreaker, Smokescreen and what looks like Alternity Convoy

Q Transformers Series 3 which includes Age of Extinction Nemesis Prime, Generation 1 Tracks, what we'd imagine must be Bluestreak by process of elimination, and a fourth figure who is probably either Skids or Hound (head looks like Hound, vehicle looks more like Skids).

There's pictures of all of these which we've attached to this story - some are still early days prototypes though. Check them all out after the break.

Hasbro-2014-Q3-Conference-Call-12 TFW2005 attended the Hasbro Third Quarter 2014 Earnings Conference Call live today.

The last financial quarter was very eventful for Hasbro. Not only the Hasbro-Discovery Hub Network was rebranded, the next Transformers Animated Series; Transformers: Robots In Disguise went to the Cartoon Network. Hasbro also appointed a new Brand President; Mr. John Frascotti. So, we joined the call unsure of what we might hear this time. Will it be good, bad or the usual? But we did not knew, that we were in for a treat as Hasbro made some important statements regarding the future of some of our beloved brands, including Transformers.

More than a year ago, TFW2005 revealed for the first time, a curious new Hasbro Trademark at the United States Patent & Trademark Office. The trademark is called AllSpark Pictures and it was only today that Hasbro revealed what it is. AllSpark Pictures is a new initiative by Hasbro where the Toy Company will produce Movies. Hasbro Studios will continue to provide content for the Television while AllSpark Pictures will cater the Live Action/Animated Movies.

The call contained:
  • The success of Transformers: Age Of Extinction
  • Transformers 5 Announced
  • AllSpark Pictures
  • Transformers: Robots In Disguise
  • Why Transformers Titan Heroes Exist

Posted on 10-19-2014 at 03:22 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Chromia-Robot-29 For our next gallery we present the other new addition in the next Generations Deluxe class assortment, Generations Chromia!

Chromia was one of the original female Autobots, introduced in the 1985 episode "The Search for Alpha Trion" along with Firestar, Moonracer, and Elita One. She's more recently received a new, updated design as one of the three female Transformers added to the IDW comics universe alongside Windblade and Nautica. This toy represents that new, updated design - but at the same time it does a good job of homaging the original Chromia. What it means for collectors is we get another female Autobot for our shelves!

The Chromia toy is a pretty cool bit of mold reuse on Hasbro's part. The basic transformation along with the torso, shoulders, hands, and parts of the legs are recycled from the Transformers Prime mainline Arcee toy - but the rest of the toy is completely reworked to the extent that Chromia is barely recognizable from Prime Arcee, unless you stand them next to each other. Chromia keeps all the good stuff from the Arcee mold she is based on - poseability and balance are great, with only the shoulders occasionally being obstructed. Chromia is fairly light on accessories with just the one weapon, but she makes up for it by looking great and having a particularly cool alternate mode. She's worth taking a look at if you want another addition to your IDW Transformers characters shelves - check out our gallery and see for yourself.

Kre-O Battlechangers In-Hand Images

Posted on 10-19-2014 at 07:05 AM by Sol Fury under Kre-O
1922116_10204772725936040_7730819480773408795_n Via Jacquelyn Orenza on Facebook, we have a look at the upcoming Kre-O Transformers Battlechangers in hand. These figures are Transformers Kre-O sets which can transform between robot and alternate modes without the need to be disassembled. The first assortment seems to be giving us four classic characters in this format - Starscream, Grimlock, Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. We're told these figures have fairly substantial backpacks to facilitate the transformations, but they look pretty cool - check out the images after the break.

TFW's Generations Arcee In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 10-18-2014 at 03:26 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Arcee-Robot-009 Now we have something very special to share with you. A gallery of a toy who has been 28 years in the making. After so many years since her debut, we bring you this gallery of Hasbro's Transformers Generations Arcee!

Arcee is here a faithful recreation of her original Generation 1 design, as seen in 1986's Transformers the Movie. Everything about her design is directly inspired from how Arcee looked in the original animated movie - from the high-tech pink coupe alternate mode, to the slender build of her robot mode with the front wheel arches on the shoulders.

The look of the figure is spot on. The articulation is decent, although the legs do feel a little restricted by the design of the hips. Arcee is surprisingly good at balancing, considering the small feet and the amount of bulk on her backpack. The backpack is one of the negatives of this figure - owing to the source design, Hasbro has pretty much the entire alternate mode fold up on to the back. It tucks in well, and helps to get that nice, streamlined robot mode down pat, but if you don't like this kind of transformation, Arcee won't thrill you.

Arcee comes with an arsenal of accessories - two blasters which stow in alternate mode, and holster on the hips of the robot mode. Both are based on guns Arcee had used in the run of the Generation 1 cartoons she appeared in. Arcee also has a pair of swords, jointly inspired by her Animated toy and her current comic persona. These swords can be held as normal swords, or held as "gunblades" as well as mounted on the forearms, so there's a decent number of display options for them.

All in all, this Arcee toy is the Arcee toy we've been waiting for - a nice, faithful representation of the design from the show. She's not perfect, but she fills that Arcee shaped gap in our collections perfectly. Check out our gallery for over 150 pictures of this little lady:

Transformers Ultimate All Stars Mobile Game Promo Video

Posted on 10-14-2014 at 12:03 PM by Sol Fury under Video Games
Takara-Tomy have uploaded a promotional video for the Hero Z produced Japanese market only Transformers Ultimate All Stars Mobile Game. The promo video gives a short demonstration of the way the game works - which seems to consist of picking your team of warriors to pit against an enemy team. There seems to be a story mode, if the way that character artwork flashes up accompanied by text is any indication.

It seems to be a cute and inoffensive little mobile game - one geared around the person on the move needing a quick burst of robots in disguise action. The promo shows that the whole of the Japanese Generation 1 continuity from the original US show through Masterforce and Victory are in, along with Beast Wars (which in Japan was divided into two 26 episode shows, Beast Wars and Beast Wars Metals)

Possible New Mobile Game By DeNA - Transformers: Battle League

Posted on 10-13-2014 at 11:26 AM by SilverOptimus under Video Games
DeNA-Transformers-Battle-League DeNA; formerly known as Mobage has shared (and taken down) an announcement for a possible new Transformers Mobile Game earlier today. Though the link to the game is now redirected to the DeNA official website homepage, the Facebook post still remains thanks to the Transformers: Legends Fan Page along with a banner featuring a super-deformed Megatron.

Based on the banner, the new game will be called Transformers: Battle League. DeNA has shared the post with the status as "Coming Soon". Any other information regarding the game is unavailable at the moment, but an official announcement is expected (again) soon.

The project is looking to ship out from factories this November barring any delay with the detail work that is still being overseen.
