TFW's Combiner Wars Skydive In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 12-22-2014 at 05:04 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Skydive-Robot-18 We've got an early Christmas treat to share with you, in the form of a gallery of one of the new glorious Combiner Wars Transformers! First up is Skydive of the Aerialbots - one of the Wave 1 Deluxe Combiner Wars toys, who can form either an arm or a leg for a larger gestalt.

Skydive sticks close to his Generation 1 predecessor with this updated toy, right down to the general transformation - though there is some clever "scissoring" of the legs when going between jet and robot modes. The general transformation is shared with the other Aerialbots. It's simple yet effective - my only critique is that the arms do not really tuck away. However, the robot mode is solid, and there are not too many sacrifices made for the sake of combining. The deco is good, though personally I'd liked to have seen the thunderbolt details of the original retained - the gold stripes do not have the same amount of punch, in my view.

Overall, Skydive is a solid toy, as are his fellow Aerialbots, who we hope to share galleries of in the coming days. Check out Skydive in our new Combiner Wars galleries section below and see what you think of this cool addition to the Autobot air force!

Combiner Wars Firefly Production Process

Posted on 12-21-2014 at 09:33 PM by Jacer under Generations / Classics
10613039_755115617891968_7068596877394342228_n Thanks again to the Official Transformer's Facebook page, we get a quick look at the production process of Combiner Wars Firefly! The image shows the progress of Firefly from the first sketches to grey prototype to the final design.

This is a follow up to Alpha Bravo which they did a couple days ago. What is interesting is that we have the same head design in the top right. Did they forget just to change the template or is there some more similarities between the two figures than meets the eye?

Discuss your thought in your discussion thread!

Combiner Wars Alpha Bravo Production Designs with possible alternate head design

Posted on 12-19-2014 at 03:30 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
10847621_748593971877466_5072151466422126161_o The official Transformers Facebook page has updated with a pretty cool compilation image that traces the evolution of the new helicopter member of the Aerialbots, Alpha Bravo. Alpha Bravo is a reimagined Slingshot, though the comics by IDW make him a separate character in his own right.

This image charts the progress of a Transformer design from the early sketches, through the grey model prototype phase and the color charts, right down to the final design.

The sharp eyed might notice, though, that there is a different head in the top right of the document to the one on Alpha Bravo. Alpha Bravo has a faceplate, a visor, and other details around the head are also different. Which begs the question - is this an earlier head design before concepts for the character went a different direction, or is this a stealthy glance at a potential alternate head for use on a remold of Alpha Bravo as Protectobot Blades - whose head features some of the design elements shown in the sketch, and others could be explained away as Hasbro's reinterpretation of the classic head design. There's also a red version of the helicopter mode right beneath the head - so could this be a tease at Blades?

Transformat - A Transformers Toyline Concept

Posted on 12-18-2014 at 02:00 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
HwnPjV4 We have something extremely cool to share with you today. Professional toy inventor Andrew Mercer (aka Caution Low Sign) got in touch with us to share a concept for a Transformers line which he created. The concept, Transformat, was a plan to celebrate the different eras of the Transformers brand with toys of characters who could shift between their classic and modern incarnations. Andrew shared this brief writeup with us to explain more:


"I started working on this concept back in 2011. Knowing that 2014 was the 30th anniversary year, I thought this line would be a cool way to celebrate the rich history of the brand. Figures that could reformat between different Generations in the same way they could Transform from robot to vehicle. That is actually where the name Transformat comes from, Transform + Reformat. Enough time has passed so I wanted to share my work with the community. I built the prototypes by cutting/pasting/customizing/painting a bunch of different toys and plastic parts, (minus Starscream who is a concept mock up using existing toys) The Optimus Prime comic artwork was done by Alex Milne and Josh Perez. These guys are true professionals and a pleasure to work with. I appreciate them keeping this concept confidential for all these years. I plan to keep working towards my goal of having Transformers concepts on the shelves for everyone to enjoy.

Thanks for having a look.

Andrew Mercer
Toy Inventor
Caution Low Sign"


You can check out some pictures showcasing the concept attached to this post - and also be sure to check out this Youtube video demonstration which shows how the Bumblebee concept transforms between his two Generation forms:

Toy Soul Convention Images of 3A and Kids Logic Bumblebee and New AOE Grimlock

Posted on 12-18-2014 at 11:07 AM by Matty under Conventions
16049046575_1c17ea7722_b The Toy Soul convention in Hong Kong is currently ongoing and we've had a few images crop up over at toy-people.com of some interesting Transformers. We've seen images prior of both the 3A Bumblebee as well as Kids Logic Bumblebee. The newest image we have is of an Age of Extinction Grimlock figure, which at this time we're unsure if this is a part of the Kids Logic toy line or if it's from the Dual Model kit line. The display appears to be around other Kids Logic displays, so for now you'll have to be the judge and decide from taking a look at the attached images!

Transformers Combiner Wars Voyagers In Stock at Amazon

Posted on 12-17-2014 at 03:45 PM by Tony_Bacala under Generations / Classics
combiner-prime Amazon.com listed the Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Voyager figures as IN STOCK, being sold by Amazon directly, as of earlier today. Currently they are reading as in stock on December 20th (3 days from now).

Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Voyager Class Silverbolt
Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Voyager Class Optimus Prime

They also had the new Legends in stock:

Transformers Generations Legends Class Powerglide
Transformers Generations Legends Class Windcharger
Transformers Generations Legends Class Thundercracker
Transformers Generations Legends Class Bombshell

But, they have since dropped to a 3rd party seller with a later release date. It may be worth it for those interested to keep an eye on those pages over the next days and weeks, as Amazon will update with their own stock and mark as in-stock without notice, sell out, and revert back to 3rd party pre-orders, again without notice.

Stay tuned for TFW2005's galleries for these guys, coming soon!

Platinum Edition Generation 1 Reissue Insecticons and Coneheads Coming?

Posted on 12-17-2014 at 03:21 PM by Matty under Generation 1
10453007_10203433296101161_2797456165341563111_o A bit of news just cropped up, one that has little information attached to it for now, but TFW2005 boards member Cheem The Rup has passed along images of a packaged set of Generation 1 Insecticon reissues! The original source of this news is unknown, but it appears it started from a post on /toy/ 4chan. The packaging of the Insecticons are done up in the style of recent Platinum Edition releases.

Also interesting to note is the cross sell we can clearly see on the package of a set of Generation 1 Conehead Seekers! Given how we're already seeing packaged samples of the Insecticons, we might assume these are definitely heading for release, at this time we're just not sure when or where.

Noble, wise, and loyal to the cause, the Knights of Cybertron are steadfast in their protection of their homeworld. Any villainy that dare threaten the planet will be met with valiant courage, unwavering will, and Cybertron's greatest warriors! What remains of Unicron has cast its shadow over Cybertron for years, a constant reminder to the planet's inhabitants of the war that almost destroyed their world. Though he has been dormant for a long time, Captain Cannonball, Scorponok, and the pirate crew of the Star Seekers have arrived to change that. Hoping to use Unicron's insatiable hunger to drain Cybertron of Energon, the pirates may have underestimated the chaosbringer's own ambitions!

TRANSFORMERS VS GI JOE TP VOL 01

(W) Tom Scioli, John Barber (A/CA) Tom Scioli
Earth makes contact with an alien race-and G.I. JOE is on the front lines! But when the TRANSFORMERS arrive-well, let's just say you've never seen TRANSFORMERS or G.I. JOE like this!

Transformers: Legends Game Event - All Hail Megatron

Posted on 12-17-2014 at 09:05 AM by Matty under Video Games
tumblr_inline_ngp3d76cxf1slbwep The next Transformers event is now live! Read on for full details!

After years of war, MEGATRON and his forces had finally conquered Earth. The AUTOBOTS had been driven back to a desolate Cybertron, their mighty leader grievously injured and bereft of the Matrix of Leadership. With no one to stop them, the DECEPTICONS’ subjugation of the Earth began in earnest.

After some time, OPTIMUS PRIME, finally recovered from his injuries, puts together a team to take back the Earth from the DECEPTICONS. As they prepare their ship to depart, the INSECTICON SWARM begins their attack, throwing the AUTOBOTS into disarray until SIDESWIPE is able to intervene with the help of the larger warriors on their side.

With the ambush thwarted, the AUTOBOTS arrive on Earth and go head-to-head with STARSCREAM, SOUNDWAVE, and the rest of the DECEPTICON forces. The battle is a desperate one, with neither side gaining the advantage.

Who will reign supreme in the battle for Earth? Who will stand, and who will fall? Find out on TRANSFORMERS Legends: “All Hail Megatron”!

Transformers Universe To Shutdown

Posted on 12-16-2014 at 12:03 PM by Matty under Video Games
Transformers-Universe-Logo Transformers Universe just announced that they will be closing its doors starting today and issuing refunds to paying members. The announcement copied in its entirety below was a difficult one to make for the development team and one that will sadden many fans of the game.

The game will see full closure by January 31, 2015. Read on for the full update and details.

Today Jagex and Hasbro can confirm that Transformers Universe will close. This decision comes at an important time for both companies as they both realign their plans and focuses for 2015.

What does this mean for our players?

We’re hugely disappointed, but the game will be closing over the coming weeks before its full closure at 10am GMT on 31st January 2015.

As a team, we can’t thank players enough for the support that they have shown us over the last few years of development, and even more so during our BETA period.

What’s next?

The shutdown period will begin from today. As part of the winding down we will be refunding all those that have purchased a Founders Pack, as well as anyone that has purchased relic bundles and starter packs. These refunds should be all processed in the next 30 days. In addition we will be closing the ability for new players to make accounts, those of you that already have accounts will continue to be able to use them until the closure date.

If you haven’t received a refund after 16th January 2015 and believe you should have, then please contact the Jagex customer services team (tu_refunds@support.jagex.com). We will also be pushing an update live today that will switch off the ability for players to buy any more relic packs, or starter bundles.

As mentioned, on 31st Jan 2015 @ 10am GMT we will be shutting down all servers and forums and will freeze all Transformers Universe related accounts. These accounts will then be live for another 60 days (approx.) for any final queries before deletion on 31st March 2015.

Between now and the date of closure the Jagex CM team will continue to operate on the forums and we will provide relevant updates on the website as necessary.

If you have any queries about your account or refunds please contact our customer support team on tu_refunds@support.jagex.com. Please understand that they may be very busy during this time but they will respond as quickly as possible.

Thank You

Once again we want to thank all of the players that have played Transformers Universe and all those that have worked on the project. We’re sure you have thoughts and feelings that you’d like to share on this, so please do so on our forums. Please bear in mind that this is obviously a challenging time for all involved, especially the CM team. There will be plenty of things we can’t comment on, so please respect their position.

Sincerely

Transformers Universe Development Team

constructicons_004 It seemed strangely appropriate to mark this occasion given how over the past weekend the new Combiner Wars toys have just started to really make their way into the hands of fans. 30 years ago today, the Generation 1 Season 1 finale "Heavy Metal War" aired, and viewers were introduced to a new breed of Transformer - the Combiner.

Takara-Tomy Transformers Legends Jetfire Images

Posted on 12-15-2014 at 07:57 AM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
B441nHPCUAAZVeU Hisashi Yuki has shared some in-hand images of the Takara-Tomy release of the Generations Leader Jetfire on his Twitter account. This release, a part of the Japanese Transformers Legends line, lacks the shiny red chrome on the armor and boosters that the Hasbro release posesses, and also adds some very slight additional paint applications, some of which were planned for the Hasbro release but budgeted out.

Check out the images and see what you make of this new Autobot release.

RUMOR - Transformers: Generations Combiner Wars Sunstreaker, Ironhide, Prowl, and Mirage Incoming?

Posted on 12-12-2014 at 06:49 PM by Mechafire under Generations / Classics
image Yet another toy rumor has just surfaced! TFW2005 boards member DecepticusPrime has once again come to us with some new info, reporting finding listings for both some previously-rumored and, more interestingly, some previously-unknown figures in Walmart's systems.

The brand new listings are for:

• Generations Deluxe Sunstreaker
• Generations Deluxe Ironhide
• Generations Deluxe Prowl
• Generations Deluxe Mirage


And as for listings we'd already heard of before, we now have even more evidence of the Protectobots (and by extension Defensor) happening:

• Protectobot Blades
• Protectobot Streetwise
• Protectobot First Aid
• Protectobot Rook


It's currently unknown to us what exactly Sunstreaker, Ironhide, Prowl, and Mirage are - fans have been speculating that Mirage could be retooled from Deluxe Drag Strip, so is it possible these are retools of the already-existing Transformers: Generations Combiner Wars Deluxe limbs; a halfways reference to the G1 episode Masquerade to further fill out the Autobot ranks?

We'll just have to wait and see - but for now, you can check it out and discuss after the jump!

We have sightings from both TFW2005 member Robotochan in North Yorkshire and my very good friend, "Emperor" Shockscream, who spotted them in Derby!

So far, the sightings are only of the Voyager class figures - Silverbolt and Optimus Prime - though Shockscream reports that shelf space has been cleared for the Deluxes, though as yet no sightings on those.

As with the Robots in Disguise Warrior class toys, the place to check is Smyths Toy Superstores. Happy hunting, my UK brethren!

One of the new shots shows the trio of female Autobots - Windblade, Chromia and Arcee - in their decos for the Japanese Transformers Legends line. They all arrive at Japanese retail in February.

There is also a new image of the Transformers Legends Sky-Byte, showing the toy both in box and also loose in robot mode. Notably this Japanese release of Generations Sky-Byte is inheriting his US dub name of Sky-Byte, although the Japanese text still says Gelshark, so he's got the best of both worlds name-wise. He's arriving in Japan later this month.

This report comes to you via Ruminus of our 2005 Boards, who has spotted them in a Walmart in Arizona. Further sightings by TFW2005 member MetalSamamon confirms the first sighting, along with a sighting in a different Walmart by Severen85.

The game is well and truly afoot! Here's hoping a good quantity of both make it out before the 2015 reset of the Generations line occurs and the Combiner Wars break out!

tumblr_inline_nfzjxiAfOx1slbwep The next DeNA Transformers: Legends event is now live.

The Lazy Sue, piloted by DIRK MANUS, is attacked by HUN-GURRR and CUTTHROAT. Just as his craft is about to take heavy damage, LIGHTSPEED, SCATTERSHOT, and AFTERBURNER arrive and drive the DECEPTICONS off.

Unbeknownst to the Technobots, DIRK MANUS is actually working with the Quintessons, who sent the Terrorcons to steal the Recreator from him before he could deliver it. With his deal with the Quintessons still a secret, DIRK MANUS convinces the Technobots to accompany him to deliver his package to his client.

Despite their setback, HUN-GURRR and CUTTHROAT are ordered to once again assault the Lazy Sue and take the Recreator from the human and his AUTOBOT companions. But the Technobots are wary from the last attack, and prepare themselves for potential attack.

Will HUN-GURRR and CUTTHROAT destroy the Technobots and steal the Recreator? Can LIGHTSPEED and the Technobots keep the Lazy Sue safe? How much money will DIRK MANUS make off this deal? Find out on TRANSFORMERS Legends: “Money Is Everything!
