Nuremberg Toy Fair - First Look at Combiner Wars TITAN DEVASTATOR?

Posted on 01-29-2015 at 10:29 AM by Mechafire under Generations / Classics
1978849_603024199797087_5224819073436592702_n "JT" on Facebook via daimchoc on the 2005 Boards may have just given us our first look at the long-rumored Generations Combiner Wars Titan class Devastator from Nuremberg Toy Fair. Devastator appears to be very faithful to G1, lacking any influences from other continuities such as IDW, meaning no Prowl/"Prowlastator" here. TFW members have also noticed what looks to be his box right below him, showing six circles along its side, likely showcasing each separate component of the combiner

Also included in this image is the box of the Toys 'R' Us exclusive US release of Masterpiece Bluestreak who, from what we can tell, looks to be largely unchanged from his Takara release.

There are also some other mystery items in the image that we can't quite make out yet, but keep an eye on this post for any future updates as TFW brings you all the latest news from Nuremberg Toy Fair!

UPDATE: A user from 4chan who reportedly attended the Toy Fair has posted some details of the figure. Check it out after the break!

UPDATE 2: TFW2005 boards member Marvelous has come back from attending the Nuremberg Toy Fair Hasbro booth with a report of what she saw. Read on for more!

IT’S SLATED TO PREMIERE ON CARTOON NETWORK IN THE NEXT MONTH OR TWO, THOUGH I HAVEN’T YET HEARD A FIRM “PREMIERE DATE.” BUT, HONESTLY, MY CONTRACT WITH HASBRO ENDED IN DECEMBER, SO I MIGHT BE THE VERY LAST PERSON TO KNOW!

Rescue Bots Blurr Revealed and Released at Hong Kong Retail

Posted on 01-28-2015 at 08:39 AM by Sol Fury under Rescue Bots
27493683d1422421246-rescue-bots-rescan-optimus-blurr-found-hong-kong-11 Here's a pleasant surprise - a new Transformers toy we knew nothing about has arrived at retail! TFW2005 member Kaiser reports that he has found a Rescue Bots version of Blurr at retail in Hong Kong. Blurr is a flashy looking purple race car with the style and aesthetics of the other recent Rescue Bots releases.

He's been found alongside the new mold Optimus Prime, who is a new sighting at retail in Hong Kong. There's been no sighting of Salvage, though, who was also previously teased as coming soon - so perhaps Blurr has raced into the new assortment ahead of Salvage?

TFW's Combiner Wars Silverbolt In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 01-27-2015 at 04:05 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Silverbolt-Robot-20 Next up, we're on to the Voyagers in our series of galleries looking at the new Combiner Wars Transformers toys, and so, here's Silverbolt! The leader of the Aerialbots with the crippling fear of heights is the first of the Generation 1 combiner team leaders to be updated for the Combiner Wars line, and he's rather cool.

Silverbolt himself is a great and faithful update of the original, right down to the passenger jet alternate mode that looks close to his original concorde alternate mode. The robot mode likewise nails the look of the original, with all the style of an updated design much as we have been seeing throughout the Combiner Wars line. Silverbolt comes with a pair of accessories - a long rifle and a shield, both of which can mount on the arms, though the rifle also fits into Silverbolt's hands. The two accessories combine into a huge weapon which can mount beneath the nose of the jet mode. It even features a fake wheel molded in to compensate for the fact it covers the landing gear when attached.

The main draw of the Combiner Wars toys, though, is combining them into a single gigantic robot, and Silverbolt serves as the torso of the combination. Any four limbs can attach to form a gigantic and poseable combined mode - and make no mistake, the big guy, Superion, can hold poses well. Even simply combining the toys is a joy to do.

Silverbolt is a great example of what the Combiner Wars line is all about. He's solid on his own, but comes into his own if you also have the Deluxe class toys to make the limbs for his combined mode. Well worth checking out - and on that note, check out our gallery at the link below:

Transformers: Animated The Complete AllSpark Almanac Cover & New Details

Posted on 01-26-2015 at 08:08 PM by Mechafire under Animated
The-Complete-AllSpark-Almanac-cover---Marcelo-Matere-3 Jim Sorenson has just put out a hefty update for the Transformers: Animated The Complete AllSpark Almanac on his blog, Disciples of Boltax. First up, we have the new cover itself, drawn by Marcelo Matere and colored by Josh Perez. Secondly, Jim confirms that the book will include The AllSpark Almanac Addendum which was assembled for the Transformers Collectors' Club magazine, and about ten pages of new content teasing more of what Season 3.5 might look like. Here's the full quote form Jim himself:

"It looks like The Complete AllSpark Almanac is just three short weeks away, with an ETA of February 18th at fine comic book stores everywhere. (Probably hitting Amazon shortly thereafter, available for preorder now.) Here's Marcelo Matere's beautiful cover for the book, with excellent Josh Perez colors. (Josh also lent his talents to some of the new bonus material inside the book.)

For those of you who missed our Radio Free Cybertron interview, this is going to be a massive, 472 page tome that combines The AllSpark Almanac, The AllSpark Almanac II, The AllSpark Almanac Addenda we put together for the Transformers Collectors' Club, and ten-ish pages of new content teasing more of what Season 3.5 might look like. We worked closely with Derrick Wyatt to ensure that the book was as close to 100% canon as possible, with all new material carefully vetted (and a bit of old material tweaked or recontextualized.) I hope that you all get a big kick out of this one. V1 and V2 are insanely hard to find and fetch ridiculous prices on the secondary market, so it's very nice to get this material back in print where everyone can get a copy."


The book will be available in three weeks, on February 18 - be sure to pick yours up!

Maketoys Announces RE:MASTER SERIES - Cupola (Chomedome), Gun Dog (Hound), and Hellfire (Inferno)

Posted on 01-26-2015 at 08:46 AM by Matty under 3rd Party Unlicensed
15751665463_ca2728f6e7_b The Maketoys website updated earlier this morning to announce a new line of transforming robots: The RE:MASTER SERIES. This line is being speculated by our members as being a fit into the current line of Masterpiece styled Transformers, a trend that is taking the third party collecting world by storm. From Maketoys:

"Re:master " , in a time where scale is everything.....Re:master is a new series to bring a new twist, new gimmicks, and maybe even a new scale to the world of transforming robots. An instant classic to an already bright and vibrant world of robots, we hope Re:master will have a place in everyone's hearts......and on their shelves!

No physical prototypes are available yet, but Maketoys showed off three blacked out silhouettes, and although we all would love to see a product shown off in full for the reveal this news is still exciting enough given the characters announced: RM-01 Cupola (Chromedome), RM-02 Gun Dog (Hound), RM-03 Hellfire (Inferno). Click on the individual links to take you to TFW's discussion thread of each figure.

So what do you think of Maketoys apparent entrance into Masterpiece scaled third party figures? Excited for the characters? Let us know what you think!

Rumor - Generations Legends Gnaw & Brawn set for Release in 2015?

Posted on 01-25-2015 at 02:56 PM by Mechafire under Generations / Classics
gnaw_1226773130 TFW2005 boards member griffin-of-oz has brought something interesting to our attention today - Bidoofdude of Ozformers.com reportedly wrote to Hasbro asking if Generations Legends Gnaw with Gnash and Brawn with Mudslinger would still be released. We had last heard of these figures before via leaked listings, but we haven't heard of them since, leading to some speculation that they may have been cancelled. However, Hasbro responded that they are indeed still planned to come out, and will be released some time in 2015, likely as part of the Combiner Wars line-up.

You can read the exchange below:

I've noticed that the Generations Legends Class figures for this year skip numbers #11 through #17. Is there a reason for this? Is it related to the listed Legends Brawn with Mudslinger and Gnaw with Gnash that seemingly didn't happen?

Could we be seeing Brawn (and less importantly, Gnaw) as a Legends figure in the Combiner Wars toyline in the coming year, as he is the only 1984 minibot without a figure yet?


To which Hasbro responded with:

There are plans for the distribution of these characters in 2015, unfortunately I do not have an exact date of arrival.

Take this with a grain of salt for now, but if true, we could very likely be seeing these figures at the rapidly-approaching New York Toy Fair.

felis6 Thanks to the weibo page of redbeanwang, we have our first few images of Mastermind Creations Felissaber! This final, yet optional, component to their Feral Rex combiner. Felissaber is remold of Tigris (aka Rampage) as a saber-toothed tiger. The head of the tiger has been made to be removed and can be utilized as a gauntlet. This figure can be used as an optional arm on Feral Rex to make him more symmetrical. He would replace Talon as an arm, who can then be attached to the back of Feral Rex. These images indicate that he's just about ready to ship to retailers if he hasn't already!

Statement From Hasbro Studios Regarding The Transformers: Robots In Disguise Airdate

Posted on 01-23-2015 at 01:00 PM by SilverOptimus under Robots In Disguise (201x)
Hasbro-Studios-Transformers-Robots-In-Disguise Hasbro Studios attended the NATPE Conference in Miami (January 20th - 22nd) and highlighted the plans for their TV Programs. Among the list of TV Shows was Transformers: Robots In Disguise and Transformers: Rescue Bots. Hasbro Studios mainly focused on the US, Latin American and European segments and gave a vague idea as to when we will see the upcoming Transformers Animated Series.

We have with us the statement made and the poster from the conference.

Hasbro Studios stated that it is focusing its sales efforts on its four franchise titles: Littlest Pet Shop, Transformers Rescue Bots, My Little Pony and the soon-to-launch Transformers Robots in Disguise. "All of our franchise titles are being exhibited globally, with the exception of Robots in Disguise, which will launch in a few months on Cartoon Network in the U.S., Latin America and Europe," says Gustavo Gomez, the company’s sales director for Latin America. "Our priority is to work with our partners to keep our audience engaged in our content through all possible platforms," Gomez notes.

Considering all the facts and rumors, we can't state and exact release date for the series in US, Latin America and Europe. But we can speculate that the series will air in the April or May timeframe. If the series is aired earlier than that it would certainly be a treat for the fans.

Takara Transformers Unite Warriors UW-01 Superion Revealed - Slingshot Confirmed!

Posted on 01-21-2015 at 10:28 PM by Mechafire under Japanese Transformers
1622820_824746677591274_71423862897444384_n Via the Planet Iacon Facebook page, we now have our first full look at Takara's version of Superion, the first offering in their new Unite Warriors line (Takara's version of Hasbro's Combiner Wars). It seems this will be sold as a gift set, being labelled as "UW-01".

As many had been speculating, he does indeed include the missing member of the Aerialbots, Slingshot, rather than his replacement Alpha Bravo. Slingshot, as many had also been speculating, is a redeco of Firefly with what looks to be a new head. The other individual Aerialbots feature many deco differences from their US counterparts for increased G1-accuracy, also with Superion possessing white hands and feet rather than the black ones of the US release.

Also featured is our first look at Takara's version of Robots in Disguise Warrior Class Bumblebee, who also looks to feature a handful of deco differences from the Hasbro version.

TFW's Combiner Wars Thundercracker In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 01-21-2015 at 06:46 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Thundercracker-Robot-23 Ever since All Hail Megatron, IDW's version of Thundercracker has been one of the most interesting characters in the Transformers comics, and it's a depiction that's earning him not one but two new toys this year. Today we're taking a look at the smaller of the two, the Legends class Thundercracker.

This Thundercracker is based on the F-22 design that was designed by Guido Guidi for IDW, and it's a straight-up redeco of the excellent Legends class Starscream mold that was released in early 2014. It's a mold that features a simple but pleasing transformation, and a decent range of articulation. The deco is excellent, and arguably works far better on this toy than it did on Starscream.

While not as awesome as Powerglide or Bombshell, this Thundercracker is an excellent example of how to do a redeco. Legends class Skywarp to finish the Seeker trio, please, Hasbro?

Check out the gallery at the link below and see what you think of this fun toy:

First up is a clip focusing on the more comedic elements of the show via the comic relief character, Fixit - though as the clip shows, there's much more to him than we do justice with in that brief statement.



Next up is a clip featuring Optimus Prime - you might consider this one a bit of a spoiler, so view with caution:

Rescue Bots Season 3 Episodes 11-14 all airing on 1 February?

Posted on 01-21-2015 at 06:18 PM by Sol Fury under Rescue Bots
888470_transformers_rescue_bots This one is a bit of a mystery, so take it as a rumor for now.

TV listings including Zap2it and LocateTV are listing that the next four all-new episodes of Transformers Rescue Bots are all set to air on 1 February. Four episodes, back to back, starting at 7am, if this is to be believed.

The four episodes listed are Season 3 Episode 11 Did you see what I thaw?, 12 The Attack of Humungado, 13 Thieves Like Us and 14 Time After Time.

Take this as you find it - the listings on Zap2it are unclear on the latter three episodes, and we have reports that at least one fellow fan is seeing the first four episodes in these slots on their DVR. But if you're a Rescue Bots fan, you may want to set these up to record, just in case new episodes do show up at the given times.

Rescue Bots Season 1 Box Set Confirmed for Australia

Posted on 01-21-2015 at 06:08 PM by Sol Fury under Rescue Bots
bhe5999-cover-bhe-website Further to our earlier report, Beyond Home Entertainment has now confirmed that they will be releasing a complete Season 1 DVD boxed set for Transformers Rescue Bots. The set collects all 26 episodes of the show's first season, and is expected to be released on 2 March 2015.

Beyond Home Entertainment has also posted a listing for a DVD "Serve and Protect", which is also due to be released on 2 March 2015, and is expected to feature 7 episodes, based on the DVD's runtime of 154 minutes. It's thought that these will be the first seven episodes of the show's second season, given that Beyond are releasing DVDs with the show's entire run in order.

US fans, you may wish to find a way of importing these if you want the whole run of Transformers Rescue Bots on DVD, as Shout! Factory have announced they have no plans to do complete season boxed sets for the US.

Dr Q Babylock - l'il Grimlock!

Now it seems via third party Dr Q, a subline of Dr Wu, Transformers is getting a new take on this concept, starting with Grimlock. "Babylock", as this unlicensed piece is known, is a take on what a baby version of Grimlock might look like - assuming Grimlock ever was a baby and not just built by Wheeljack and Ratchet in a cave on Earth. Check out the images attached to this post and see what you think.
