New Transformers Watch found at Walmart

Posted on 04-17-2015 at 03:51 AM by Sol Fury under Other News
27511471d1429241117-new-adult-tf-watch-sighted-walmart-tf-watch-box-wm Here is a fun little thing for those who like to incorporate Transformers into their daily lives in a functional way - Walmart are currently carrying a new Transformers watch. This timepiece features the Autobot symbol above the digital display, and also comes in a red display box adorned with the Autobot symbol.

It's a cool oddity for those who like to take their Transformers collecting beyond the toys, shows and comics - for us, though, the Generation 1 era watch, Time Warrior, will always be the definitive Transformers timepiece!

bc02f65a At a recent Takara-Tomy business meeting, there was an exhibition of upcoming releases. A prototype of the sublime looking Masterpiece Tracks was on show, along with Gold Bumblebee.

The Unite Warriors line was also shown, with both Superion and Menasor represented - however, Menasor was the Hasbro one rather than the altered deco (with Wildrider) rather than the modified deco that will be offered as a set in Japan.

Check out the images attached to this post, courtesy of Hobbylog. Their coverage also includes a look at Takara-Tomy's other new transforming robot line, the train-robot series Shinkarion.

Transformers: Legends Game Event - Best Of Episode - S.O.S. Dinobots

Posted on 04-15-2015 at 11:25 PM by SilverOptimus under Video Games
tumblr_inline_nmv8mijogS1slbwep_500 The next DeNA Transformers: Legends event; Best Of Episode - S.O.S. Dinobots, is now live. This is a rerun of the original S.O.S. Dinobots Event.

"In the aftermath of the clash between Megatron and Optimus Prime, the Autobots stand with their backs against the wall. With the power vacuum left behind by the clash between Megatron and Optimus Prime and with their hands full trying to protect the innocent humans, the Autobots are struggling to save themselves from disaster!

Without Optimus Prime’s leadership and strength in the battle’s ensuing chaos, Grimlock believes it’s time for him to step up. As he charges into the battle, the Decepticons feel a chill of fear when they hear echoing over the battlefield: “Me Grimlock king!”

The Dinobot’s limited intelligence but incredible strength make for an uncomfortable combination. Optimus considered shutting down the unpredictable Dinobots in the past before they could do harm to themselves or anyone else, but a sudden and devastating Decepticon attack forced him to reconsider. In the following battle the Dinobots proved that they are of immense value for the Autobots. Now the Autobots must call upon the might of the Dinobots once more, as only they can change the tide of their desperate battle.

The Decepticons fear the Dinobots for good reasons. Even the powerful Devastator could not stand against the ferocity and sheer stubbornness of the Dinobots!

Will the unpredictable Dinobots save the Autobots? Can the Dinobot’s tenacity bring down the Decepticons?

Find out in this week’s Episode: “S.O.S. Dinobots!”

More Details About The Transformers: Robots In Disguise Ongoing Comic Book Series

Posted on 04-14-2015 at 10:59 PM by SilverOptimus under Robots In Disguise (201x)
TF-RIDAnimated01-cvrSUB-5024f An article by CBR highlights the upcoming Transformers: Robots In Disguise Ongoing Comic Book Series (not to be confused with the previous comic book series with the same name). Following the announcement by Georgia Ball, this is the first time we are looking at the cover for the #1 issue.

“IDW makes the distinction that while the comic series is based on the "Robots in Disguise" TV show, it's not an adaptation of the same stories. "The stories tie into the continuity the show shares with 'Transformers Prime' and what happens in the cartoon will have consequences in the comic," Ball said in a statement to CBR. "But the comic will also feature new villains and explore different themes. There will be squabbles and there will be punching, but the first arc weaves in an element of mystery and betrayal. Bumblebee has to put the pieces together and he may not get them in the right order. I like resolving subplots in one or two issues within the context of a longer ongoing story, I’m not a fan of ending an issue without getting somewhere."”

You can read the full article, at CBR.

Mastermind Creations Seraph Prominion (Nova Prime) New Prototype Pictures

Posted on 04-14-2015 at 12:20 PM by ORIO under 3rd Party Unlicensed
seraph5 Ages Three and Up have posted on youtube a brief look at one of the next upcoming projects from Mastermind Creations, Seraph Prominion aka Nova Prime. We got our first glimpse of this project back in August of 2013, so this is one fans have been slowly waiting for. 2005 Board member Metaphorge was kind enough to take some screen shots from the video to give us a closer look at the figure. We can see two shots of the figure in these images and it gives us our first look at the prototype for the trailer. The trailer will open up to give wings and armor to Seraph to complete his Nova Prime upgraded look. Also from these images, we can see the weapons he will come with, which appear to be a set of dual revolvers! The colors on this figure are not yet finalized, but one can gather a black/white deco like Nova has in the IDW comic.

• This is the first time Hasbro is calling on their fans to induct real people into the Hall of Fame as a Fans' Choice inductee.

• The Favorite Character category functions just like the general Fans' Choice category did for the past 6 years, letting fans nominate whichever Transformers characters they'd like to see inducted that have not already been inducted. However, Combiners will not be considered for this category due to the Best Combiner category.

• No characters or people who have already been inducted will be considered for nomination. A list of inducted characters can be found (in the discussion threads below). Please note that for the Musical Act category, this includes Stan Bush.
We here at TFW2005 have started 3 threads for initial feedback. We don't have a lot of time, so please sound off with your suggestions for the poll by Thursday 4/16/15 at the links below. We will then create 3 polls, one for each category, and allow you guys to vote. The top 3 from each will be submitted to Hasbro on behalf of the TFW2005 community.

So, first things first, sound off with your suggestions here:

We've got another one to share with you, which you also might remember from Botcon 2007 - a papercraft Hearts of Steel Bumblebee. This steam engine form of Bumblebee was heavily featured in the Hearts of Steel miniseries from IDW, and looks great.

E-Hobby Unite Warriors Grand Scourge

Posted on 04-13-2015 at 01:05 AM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
1_000000002824 E-Hobby have announced they will be carrying a new exclusive release - a Scourge themed version of Combiner Wars Voyager Optimus Prime! This Grand Scourge is a black and gold version of Combiner Wars Optiimus, and is a homage to a pla-kit released in the Super Link line in 2004, picking up on the Transformers Energon Optimus Prime references in this toy.

Grand Scourge comes with a huge cleaver of a sword, named "Matrix Breaker", repurposed from the Ultimate Beast Hunter Optimus Prime. He's due for release in September priced at 6,500 yen, and will also come with his own (Japanese) comic to explain his backstory.

TFW's Combiner Wars Motormaster In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 04-12-2015 at 03:20 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Motormaster-Robot-58 Rounding off the Combiner Wars Stunticons, here is their leader, the malevolent Motormaster! Motormaster is an extensive remolding of Combiner Wars Voyager Optimus Prime, to the point that most of his upper body / front of truck has been redone.

Like Optimus Prime, Motormaster is a stocky figure, with solid articulation. The brawny build works for the character, in our opinion, and the remolding keeps him from being "just" a grey Optimus Prime. He's got new weapons - a blade and a blaster - which merge into a larger sword. What we particularly like is the reworking of the Menasor form chest cavity, which features something which just might be inspired by Age of Extinction Galvatron molded in the space occupied by Blackjack when Menasor is fully combined.

Overall, Motormaster is another solid offering in the Combiner Wars lineup. He's brawny and powerful, and has the right kind of commanding aura when displayed with the other Stunticons. Check him out and see what you think:

Generations Combiner Wars First Aid In-Hand Images

Posted on 04-12-2015 at 12:16 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
3ynA9wo Genetic of TFND has come through again, giving the fandom a look at the upcoming Combiner Wars First Aid. First Aid is based on his appearance from the More than Meets the Eye comics, so he'll be a great addition to any collection of Lost Light 'bots, as well as the Protectobots.

First Aid is a remold of the Stunticon, Offroad - though remold is perhaps not a strong enough term, because First Aid here is a complete reworking of the toy, with every single vehicle panel redone, to the point that all the two toys share is the transformation scheme and the accessories - it's that well done. If this is what Hasbro is bringing forward for mold reuses in the future, we say, bring it on!

Check out a selection of the images attached to this post.

Renderform Stunticon Weapons, Menasor Heads, and More!

Posted on 04-12-2015 at 02:58 AM by Sol Fury under 3rd Party Unlicensed
27510284d1428792743-renderform-combiner-wars-menasor-heads-stunticon-weapons-rf017_r_l_01 Transformers garage kit accessory manufacturer Renderform have recently celebrated their fifth anniversary, and in doing so, have revealed a whole slew of new releases.

Chief among these are two different heads for Combiner Wars Menasor - Road Shogun, a samurai themed head based on a combination of designer Venksta's own thoughts and the Generation 1 designs by Studio Ox, and Road Bandit, a more Generation 1 cartoon inspired version. All three are being done with a choice of light-piped or painted eyes, and three different expressions.

The Combiner Wars Stunticons are also the subject of five new weapon accessories, based on the guns used by the Stunticons for their Generation 1 toys.

(It's important to point out that these photos feature the prototypes rather than the final products; Venksta notes that the prototypes shown came out larger than expected, and that the final size of the guns will be about 75% of their size here.)

Beyond this there is also a full on garage kit for the Prime Thundertron family of molds to give it a more Optimus Prime inspired head; limited run new versions of popular sword weapons Banshee Blade and Fury Blade; a limited second run on the Generation 1 themed Jetfire air rifle; and going back to where we started, a Menasor head - though this one is a prototype for an unmade Animated Menasor set, and is a nice bust to display with your Botcon 2011 figures.

Check out all the latest Renderform releases on the Renderform homepage.

Joecon 2015 Transformers Update

They will also be offering an "Old Snake" version of Cobra Commander, as seen in the Transformers episode "Only Human".This goes along with their previously seen Marissa Fairborn and Afterburner, using a G.I. Joe figure mold and non-transforming G.I. Joe vehicle.

TFW's Combiner Wars Blackjack In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 04-09-2015 at 03:27 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Blackjack-Robot-27 We're back with another gallery of the Combiner Wars Stunticons, and this time, we're looking at the smallest member of the group, Blackjack! Blackjack is a double homage - he's named for and based on a Generation 1 Micromaster, but in his role as the chest of Menasor, he also references the black drone car that came with the original Motormaster.

Blackjack is a cool little toy. He's got a decent amount of articulation, including a neck and ball-jointed knees, which we do not see often in the smaller toys. The transformation is decent, though nothing particularly outstanding or new, and keeping with the melee theme of the Stunticons, Blackjack comes with an axe which can be mounted on the rear of the vehicle to provide a spoiler.

Overall, Blackjack is a nice little figure, and a great complement to the Stunticon set. Check out our gallery to see more of this Classics Micromaster:

4904810831723 E-Hobby and Takara-Tomy Mall have added new images showing off the Unite Warriors version of the combiner, Menasor! The Japanese release of the Stunticons from Combiner Wars, Unite Warriors Menasor is based more strongly on the Generation 1 cartoon designs, down to the silver-white arms on an otherwise black Motormaster toy, the lack of stripe on Dead End, and other changes. The set also forgoes Offroad in favor of a Dead End retool for Wildrider, meaning this is one giftset that incorporates all five main Stunticons, as they were in Transformers Generation 1.

Transformers: Legends Game Event - Best Of Episode - Day Of The Dinobots, Part 1

Posted on 04-08-2015 at 11:25 PM by SilverOptimus under Video Games
tumblr_inline_nmia0pWVV71slbwep_500 The next DeNA Transformers: Legends event; Best Of Episode - Day Of The Dinobots, Part 1 is now live. This is a rerun of the original Day Of The Dinobots, Part 1 Event.

"The Dinobots have been behaving erratically at the Autobot headquarters. Grimlock and Swoop disappeared without a trace, while Slug, Sludge and Snarl were slowly becoming more and more aggressive. Slug announced he would not take orders from anyone until Grimlock returned and then he and the other two Dinobots headed in the direction of the Decepticon base.

Wheeljack told Optimus Prime that he needed to scan the Dinobots to get the necessary information that would explain their malfunction. Optimus tried to reason with them, but the trio viciously attacked him.

Optimus signaled Wheeljack, who used the distraction created by Optimus to apply the magnetic inducer on Slug. The inducer was not as effective as it should have been, but it gave Wheeljack the opportunity to get a full scan, just as the Dinobots overwhelmed Optimus. The scanned data was heavily corrupted, and it would take a while for Teletraan I to repair the information before analysis.

Megatron was elated by the news of Optimus Prime having been badly damaged by the Dinobots and made plans to capitalize on it. Just as he was about to order a surprise attack against the Autobots, alarms started sounding at the Decepticons base. The Dinobots were approaching."

hotspot Amazon has put up pre-orders for Combiner Wars Wave 3. This includes Hot Spot, the 4 Protectobots, Cyclonus, and Leader Thundercracker. They have the items listed with a June 15th release date which conflicts with many online retailers projected release of April 2015. Whether Amazon will be getting theirs later, is currently showing a wrong date, or other online retailers will have a delay is unknown at the moment. Many of these figures are finding their way into the hands of collectors already, so we'd assume it's one of the first two. Feel free to check it out along with high resolution images for the figures at the following link, and share what you find out on the forums!
