Masterpiece Star Saber Color Images, Price and Release Date

Posted on 09-02-2014 at 07:39 AM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
10644866_553621674740105_5085347354637072434_n Via Taghobby, we have our first look at Masterpiece Star Saber in color! While it's a small image, it shows us how the big guy is going to look once he is finished - and he looks awesome!

In addition, this new information confirms that Star Saber will be MP-24, and will be released in March 2015 priced 18,000 yen.

Separately, the TFYuki twitter account has tweeted a new image showing Star Saber in a stoic pose - what's notable about this image is it shows there is some real movement in those shoulders.

Check out both images attached to this story!

Takara MP-23 Exhaust Revealed

Posted on 09-01-2014 at 10:59 PM by StayingInTheBox under Transformers Masterpiece
MP23a Let's get the week started off right, how about a new Masterpiece reveal?! Just revealed via Tag Hobby is Masterpiece MP-23 Exhaust! MP-23 is a redeco of the soon to be released MP-20 Wheeljack with a new head. This Masterpiece figure appears to be based on the Diaclone figure that became wheelback, better known as "Marlboro Wheeljack." The character name of Exhaust looks to be an original name given to this "new" character.

We'll keep you updated as more news becomes available. For now, enjoy the first image of MP-23 Exhaust!

Masterpiece Star Saber and Generation 1 Star Saber Comparison Image

Posted on 09-01-2014 at 04:44 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
797781ac72276b1122a698a85adbea5b_zps91cff113 After what feels like days of teases with individual parts shown side by side, we've got the payoff from Hisashi Yuki in the form of a full, side by side comparison of the new Masterpiece Star Saber and Generation 1 Star Saber. As we mentioned earlier, Masterpiece Star Saber is slightly taller than his Generation 1 counterpart and is better proportioned, as this image demonstrates. We can also see how the design is very closely modeled on the animation model of Star Saber giving the robot a very dynamic look. All in all, Masterpiece Star Saber is shaping up well and promises to be an excellent addition to our Masterpiece Transformers collections - check out the image and see for yourself.

Masterpiece Wheeljack Asia Exclusive Collector Coin

Posted on 09-01-2014 at 10:17 AM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
6957ef6826cd732135899fbf50588b06_zps91eeead6 Transformers Asia have updated with some details of the collector coin which is being released alongside Masterpiece Wheeljack in Asian markets (excluding Japan). As with past releases, the coin features some pretty sweet packaging, in this case, packaging which slides sideways to reveal the coin. When closed, the packaging resembles Wheeljack's racing stripes. Check out the image attached to this story.

Jagex Transformers Universe Pandemic and Megatron teaser images

Posted on 09-01-2014 at 10:04 AM by Sol Fury under Video Games
1904023_686459028089689_440795719859674832_n After a quiet couple of weeks following the launch of the public beta, Jagex have updated their Transformers Universe Facebook page with some new teaser images.

First up is a look at a look at a new Decepticon, who we believe is named Pandemic. He sports a nifty purple and gold color scheme - and judging by the ground about his feet, he might fight using some kind of tentacles or vines. Or maybe it's just a fancy effect.

Next up is someone we all know - Megatron! More specifically, this is Jagex's take on Megatron, who seems to be on the "warrior" end of the spectrum, a Decepticon marked with wounds of a dozen battles and untroubled by any of them. His design seems to bring in a bit of inspiration from the War for Cybertron designs - check it out!

Masterpiece Star Saber supermode size comparison

Posted on 09-01-2014 at 09:57 AM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
f5372bdf719883ed8ad7ed7b5a71e14b_zps0a36ea5f Hisashi Yuki has tweeted out a new image, showing the V-Star component of Masterpiece Star Saber and Generation 1 Star Saber in their robot modes. Interestingly, while the Masterpiece version of the Brain of Courage and Saber are smaller than their originals, the full Masterpiece Star Saber is marginally bigger than its original form. There's evidence of some better proportions on the Masterpiece version, such as an elongated torso, and you can again see plenty more detail on the Masterpiece Star Saber - right down to some little doors on the inside of the legs, to conceal the hinges that let the lower legs swing out for the V-Star transformation. Check out the image attached to this post.

TFW's Generations Windblade In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 08-31-2014 at 04:35 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
WindbladeRobot48 Next up in our series of gallery updates, we have a look at the Fan-built 'bot herself, Windblade! She's billed as "the first fan-built bot" as well as being the 30th in the series of 30 special edition releases to commemorate 30 years of Transformers. She's also something quite rare in modern Transformers - a complete new character rather than a homage or a reference to someone in the past lore.

Windblade has evidently had a lot of time spent on her toy. From her detailed paint apps to her sword complete with scabbard and removable fan in her "hair", Windblade really does live up to the billing of being a bit special. She's got a cool design with a few nice touches, including the ability to angle her VTOLs forward, the aforementioned removable fan, and the sword, which can be sheathed in a scabbard with a variety of different posing options. The scabbard has tabs on either side which can fit into any of the "cuts" for the swivel joints as well as groves on the jet nosecone, so Windblade can wear her sword on her back, her hip, and so on. The scabbard also has a 5mm handgrip allowing you to do some nifty poses involving Windblade drawing her sword - we quickly found she could do a lot of fun samurai poses.

We really like Windblade and hope that we can see more toys with her standard of design, detail and "nice touches" come along soon enough. Check out our gallery and see if you agree:

TFW's Generations Jhiaxus In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 08-30-2014 at 12:53 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
JhiaxusRobot67 We've got another new Generations toy to share a look at with you today! The next wave of Generations will shortly be arriving at US retail and one of the four new toys being released in the new assortment will be Jhiaxus!

Generations Jhiaxus is the second time that the main antagonist of the 12 issue Marvel Transformers Generation 2 series has got a toy, but this is the first one to have been molded to look like his comic incarnation - that said, he's got the colors of his previous toy release, a store exclusive in the Robots in Disguise line. Either way, it's the first time Jhiaxus has has a mass retail, non-exclusive release!

Jhiaxus is a remold of the Generations Armada Starscream, an extensive remold that sees him gain not only a new head but a completely reworked chest / upper torso, jet nosecone, wings, tailfins and weapons. A new transformation step is also added, with the nose of the jet now folding into the chest instead of just hanging in front of the robot's waist. There's plenty of details in the design too, though the bright orange colors - and it really is a garish shade - does make it hard to properly appreciate the level of detail worked in.

Check out our gallery and see what you think!

Transformers Cloud Brawn and Starscream In-Hand Images

Posted on 08-30-2014 at 09:15 AM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
CIMG8759_zpsb31f624e TFW2005 member Masabon has kindly shared with us images of the latest releases in Takara-Tomy's Transformers Cloud line. The newly released figures are Brawn, who is a Takara-Tomy Mall exclusive and a remold of Transformers Prime First Edition Bulkhead. Joining him is a triple-changing Starscream who is a redeco of Generations Doubledealer, with the nul-rays from Masterpiece Starscream. "Stardealer" is an E-Hobby exclusive. Check out the images of both figures after the break.

Masterpiece Star Saber core robot new images

Posted on 08-30-2014 at 09:07 AM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
BwQlPLyCQAEJqWa Hishashi Yuki has tweeted some new images of Masterpiece Star Saber. In these new images we can see the core robot, Saber, folded up into the mode where he forms the chest of the combined Star Saber supermode. There's a comparison shot with the original Star Saber's chest - demonstrating again that the new one is a little smaller but much sharper on the details - along with a shot of Masterpiece Saber wearing Generation 1 Star Saber's body - it's not a perfect fit! Check out the new images attached to this post.

Bold Forms Wildfire / Breakdown

Posted on 08-30-2014 at 09:00 AM by Sol Fury under 3rd Party Unlicensed
10599412_749462405095020_6885749691326869720_n Third party group Bold Forms have recently updated their Facebook page with a look at their second unofficial third party Stunticon. The second release in their Stunticons will be named Wildfire, and will be a homage to Generation 1 Breakdown. As with their Motormaster, Lone Wolf, this offering is very much like a reimagined version of the Generation 1 toy with modern standards of articulation worked in.

Transformers Song Universe and Music Matrix Cover Images

Posted on 08-28-2014 at 04:29 PM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
27463852d1409244576-new-japanese-transformers-dvd-cd-preorder-amazon-jp-8123wftgo6l_sl1500_ Amazon Japan have updated with cover images for the upcoming Transformers 30th anniversary special edition CD music collection Transformers Song Masterpiece and the DVD collection of all the show's many intros, Transformers Music Matrix.

Transformers Music Matrix is a DVD collecting clips of 55 openings and endings across the 30 year history of the franchise. Almost every opening and closing theme is represented - only "Big Bang", the first Japanese intro theme for Transformers Prime, is unrepresented. There are also some bonus additional tracks, alternate versions of the main intros to the original Generation 1 dub, Masterforce, the second intro and ending to Galaxy Force (Ignition and Growing Up, respectively) and Transformers Go. These bonus versions are almost certainly in respect of the fact that these series updated some of their opening and closing animations mid-season while keeping the same theme song. So other than Big Bang, this DVD seems to be a good representation of 30 years of Transformers cartoons. The cover features a montage of all the main Cybertron commanders from Generation 1 through to Zone.

Transformers Song Masterpiece is a similar deal, except as a four disc CD collection collecting the full-length Japanese songs for nearly every single Transformers opening and closing theme. The only absence again is "Big Bang". The cover to this one features Optimus Prime / Convoy in a stoic pose, with the rest of the label strongly inspired by the look of the Masterpiece toy packaging.

Both the CD boxed set and the DVD are due to release in Japan on September 17th - the 30th anniversary to the day of the premiere of the airing of the first Transformers cartoon.

TFW2005 Community Opinion Piece: Toys We Can't Put Down

Posted on 08-26-2014 at 12:00 PM by Secretcode under Site Updates
optimus_prime_voyager_box_1199643237 Last weekend, I asked the members of the TFW2005 forums about what toys they kept coming back to over the years and received some pretty surprising results with some very clear "winners".

This discussion wasn't just a one off experiment, as the very subject I asked the readers about was also aimed toward myself in this new opinion piece about the very same subject where I go over five Transformers toys I keep going back to again and again, and also share many of the responses from both the TFW2005 Forum and the TFW2005 Lounge as well as the final results of the poll!

Take the jump to see the article, and as always stay tuned to TFW2005 as news and original content goes live.

page_1 IDW via Issuu have posted a full preview of Transformers MTMTE #32, due out in comic stores this week.

On a quest to find the Knights of Cybertron, the starship Lost Light vanished. As the crew escape, they begin disappearing one by one - seemingly at random. But a pattern reveals itself: only crew who were not onboard the Lost Light when it originally left Cybertron remain... and a damaged and dead in space Lost Light reappears.

Check out the preview and be sure to pick up the full book when it hits stores!

Masterpiece Star Saber core robot comparison image

Posted on 08-25-2014 at 04:42 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
27463169d1408968579-takara-masterpiece-fans-choice-winner-star-saber-bv4g1t-cuaivlay Hisashi Yuki has tweeted a fresh image of the prototype of Masterpiece Star Saber. This new image shows the core robot - named Saber - alongside the original Generation 1 Saber robot. This image shows that the new Masterpiece edition of Saber is smaller than his Generation 1 original, but also shows up just how much more detailed and animated the new figures design is - check out the much improved chest proportions, for example! We've attached the new image to this story - keep it TFW for more Masterpiece Transformers news!

Masterpiece Star Saber Prototype Images from Dengeki Hobby Magazine

Posted on 08-24-2014 at 10:29 AM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
Ke4sUdW Japanese hobby magazine Dengeki Hobby has some new images of the prototype of the Masterpiece Fan's Choice figure, Star Saber. The commander of the Cybertrons in the Japanese continuity, Star Saber is loaded with features authentic to the original toy.

Of note is that the Brainmaster figure is present - as we saw in previous images - and there is a demonstration of how the Brainmaster feature works this time out. Unlike the original - where the smaller robot's face was within the Brainmaster figure - this time out it seems like the face is within the robot, with the Brainmaster merely fitting in the chest. This does make the Saber portion of Star Saber somewhat animation-accurate, though.

The combination of smaller Saber robot and V-Star booster module for the larger Star Saber robot are also demonstrated, along with the lateral arm movement of the full Star Saber figure. There's also a look at some more dynamic poses from both Saber and Star Saber, plus concealed rocket pods for the jet mode - again, all of this seems to be very heavily taken from the look of Star Saber in the animation.

Check out the scans - coming at you via Taghobby - attached to this post.

Perfect Effect Warden Extra Weapons Edition

Posted on 08-23-2014 at 09:16 AM by Sol Fury under 3rd Party Unlicensed
1493467_689135304498806_8579767348668951247_o Perfect Effect have revealed a new version / accessory pack for their popular unofficial Fortress Maximus, Warden, may be in the works. They've posted up photos on their Facebook page showing a version of Warden with some extra accessories including a new gun and boots to make Warden a bit taller and more Fortress Maximus proportioned.

At this time, we're not clear on if this is an accessory set, a new version of the figure with the new accessories, or if both options will happen. It's been pointed out that in order to work some of the new leg parts the original figure's knees need to be replaced - so it's possible this is a new full figure release.

Transformers Cloud Energon Ironhide and Hellwarp

Posted on 08-23-2014 at 08:13 AM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
P1010669 Via Dengeki Hobby, we have our first look at the next two releases in the Transformers Cloud series. On the Autobot side we have Roadbuster, a Transformers Energon Ironhide themed repaint of Generations Roadbuster. He's the fourth wave's Takara-Tomy Mall exclusive, and works shockingly well in the Energon Ironhide deco.

On the Decepticon side we have Hellwarp, a Skywarp themed recolor of Generations Skybyte. Hellwarp is the E-Hobby exclusive of the fourth set of Cloud releases. He's got an involved backstory - while Hellwarp is a complete new, non-homage character, there was a Hellscream in 1998's Beast Wars Second, who was a remold of Cybershark to represent an evolved version of that show's Starscream. Hellwarp is a similar concept - a recolored version of Generations Skybyte to represent a cyborg shark evolution of skywarp. To top it off, the mohawk head that using the Skybyte mold gives Skywarp just might be a reference to Transformers Armada Skywarp, who also had a fin on his head.

Check out the full gallery on Dengeki Hobby, which includes new pics of the previous six Cloud releases as well.

Unmade Cassy Sark Concepts - Unofficial Lugnut, Depth Charge, Skyquake, And More

Posted on 08-22-2014 at 12:38 PM by Mechafire under 3rd Party Unlicensed
lugnut03 Here's some bittersweet news for you all - TFW has been keeping an eye on this and wanted to post all available information for all to see.

3rd party freelancer and MMC designer Cassy Sark has been posting a smattering of (glorious) Cybertronian figure concepts up on his Facebook, which were apparently intended to be Ultra class-sized. These are:

• Zealot (Lugnut)
• Triton (Depth Charge)
• Turbulance (Skyquake)


In addition, while we don't have images of what they would have looked like, these are more retools which were evidently going to be made:

• Straxus
• IDW Jhiaxus


Alas, these projects were planned, but never came to be, with no company wanting to produce them. However, there are rumors about that these images are being released to gauge interest in them, and potentially be picked up by any willing 3rd party company.

So, would you like to see these be made? Check out the images and sound off after the jump!

A Glimpse Inside Ex Kenner/Hasbro Employee's Toy Collection

Posted on 08-21-2014 at 09:07 AM by StayingInTheBox under Other News
It's not very often Transformers fans get to witness toy history, such as something as epic as a nearly $27,000 G2 Menasor auction. Needless to say when prototypes, unreleased items, and test shots are shown, Transformers fans can be mesmerized by what we see. TFW thought it would be cool to share a small piece of that with two videos provided by z75sales, the seller who has been listing several unreleased items including the infamous G2 Menasor.

In the two videos we get a glimpse of the sheer size of an ex Kenner/Hasbro employee who is selling off the collection of untouched and rarely seen items. Literally hundreds of boxes with toys from the late 80's and 1990's need to be organized and categorized, some of which still hold surprises!

Check out the videos below for a fun piece of the rarely seen side of our hobby.

Timelines-Pirates-vs-Knights Thanks to TFW2005 board member D-Drive we have our first look at the Diamond Edition cover and solicit for Transformers Timelines #10: Pirates vs Knights! This issue was featured at BotCon 2014, the Diamond edition will include a brand new cover by artist Marcelo Matare. Here's the info we have so far:

TRANSFORMERS TIMELINES #10 PIRATES VS KNIGHTS
FUN PUBLICATIONS INC
(W) Marty Isenberg (A) Hayato Sakamoto (CA) Marcelo Matere
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!
Cover by Marcelo Matare


We'll keep you updated as more information about this release is made available!

In October, Dawn of the Autobots will end - and in November, as John Barber's Robots in Disguise transitions to "just" Transformers, the Days of Deception begin! There's a new trade dress on the covers this month as well which shows off the artwork of the covers a bit more - what do you think?

November will also see the beginning of the new Drift: Empire of Stone miniseries, Transformers Angry Birds, and the fourth concluding issue of Transformers Primacy! Check out the full solicit text after the break.

Bold Forms Unofficial Megatron and Motormaster First Prototype Images

Posted on 08-20-2014 at 12:56 AM by Sol Fury under 3rd Party Unlicensed
ABUIABACGAAg0MvKnwUoybvXogUwoAI4sQI Third party group Bold Forms have shared some new images of prototypes of their unofficial takes on Motormaster and Megatron, aka Lone Wolf and Gladius. From these images we can see the Megatron has a Generation 1 style robot mode with a tank alternate mode - much like the upcoming Hasbro Leader class toy - while the Motormaster seems to be a Masterpiece scaled version of the Generation 1 toy with some extra details included.

Discuss the Lone Wolf / Motormaster images here, and the Gladius / Megatron images here.
