30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 1999

Posted on 04-23-2014 at 12:00 PM by Sol Fury under Beast Wars
1999 1999 was the fifteenth anniversary of the Transformers brand, an occasion that went largely unmarked save for a recognition at Botcon 1999 (which was also the fifth anniversary of Botcon). Beast Wars reached its climax, concluding with a finale written by long time Transformers comics scribe Simon Furman, and the toyline carried on and developed the Transmetals theme with Transmetal 2s. Japan meanwhile got a double-whammy of new series this year with a dub of Beast Wars seasons 2 and 3 as “Beast Wars Metals” as well as the Japan-only series Beast Wars Neo, which had its own toyline populated almost exclusively with new and Japan-only toys.

Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark Walmart Exclusive Stinger Pre-Order Bonus

Posted on 04-21-2014 at 04:00 PM by Mechafire under Video Games
avatar73896_69 TFW2005 boards member Fox13 has pointed out to us that Wamart.com's pre-order page for Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark has updated with information saying that you will receive Stinger as a pre-order bonus. It is apparently only at Walmart, so you'll have to purchase the game there if you want him.

But, if you're unable to buy from Walmart, going by past events, there is a possibility that Stinger will be made DLC later on.

There's no word yet if any other retailers will have exclusive pre-order bonuses for the game, so keep an eye on TFW2005 to see if any others pop up.

Botcon 2014 Exclusive Ginrai (Fiery Classics Optimus Prime!) Revealed

Posted on 04-21-2014 at 12:23 PM by Sol Fury under Conventions
27433235d1398098580-botcon-2014-fire-guts-god-ginrai-ginraibotweb Botcon have announced the fifth member of their convention boxed set today and it is an impressive piece indeed. The fifth member of the set is Ginrai, a fiery red and orange redeco of the venerable Classics Optimus Prime figure.

Ginrai is the second Cybertronian Knight in the boxed set, and by way of an alternate wrist transformation is shown here holding his windvane as a shield - the windvane being adorned with the new symbol of the Cybertronian Knights.

The toy's deco is based on the "Fire Guts" Ginrai featured in the 1988 Japanese series, Transformers Chojin (Super God) Masterforce, which in that series was the final attack of the Godmaster, Super Ginrai and his powered up form God Ginrai. An E-Hobby exclusive depicting the attack was released in the early 2000s, which is where this deco takes its cues from.

With the reveal of Ginrai the five figures in this year's Botcon boxed set are known, and they are:

Ginrai from Classics Optimus Prime
Devcon from Generations Scourge, with a new head
Scorponok from Energon Scorponok, retooled to use a remolded Encore Spike as his Headmaster
Ferak from Universe Cyclonus
Cannonball from Prime Ratchet, with a new head


Botcon 2014 is being held over the weekend of June 19 - 22 in Pasadena, California. Visit the Botcon homepage for more information on the convention, the official 30th anniversary of Transformers convention and also the 20th anniversary Botcon!

1997 1997 arrived and the Beast Wars entered their second year. The toys developed and became more complex, dropping some elements such as battlemasks and flip-changers, but also bringing back limited triple changing and combiners. Transformers returned to Japan once again with “Beast Wars: Super Robot Lifeform Transformer”, both as a toyline and also for the first time in seven years, a cartoon (albeit a dub of Mainframe’s work heavy on adlibbing). Amid all of this, the first Botcon Japan was held, and Kenner experimented with bringing back vehicle Transformers with the Machine Wars…

Fanstoys Soar Red and Blue Version, Unofficial Snarl, Sludge and Grimlock Announced

Posted on 04-20-2014 at 10:25 PM by ORIO under 3rd Party Unlicensed
Soar1 Popular 3rd party group, Fanstoys, have updated with information on their next release as well as three more releases planned after that. You may know Fanstoys based off of their popular fan produced, unofficial Masterpiece Shockwave, Quakewave. Due for release soon is Scoria, their follow up, an unofficial Masterpiece Dinobot Slag. Tonight, the group has updated with two options for their third intended release named Soar, an unofficial Masterpiece Swoop. Their take on Dinobot Swoop will be available in two different color options. Red, for fans of the G1 toy, and Blue, for fans of his appearance in the original G1 cartoon.

On top of this exciting news, we have a picture revealing Fantoys next three releases after Scoria and Soar. The lineup of toys is called Iron Dibots, and unofficial Masterpiece versions of Snarl, Sludge and finally Grimlock will follow suit. Grimlock is surprising, as fans already have a well represented Masterpiece version of the character. But, fans unhappy that Scoria is going to be taller than the Hasbro/Takara release will be happy to hear a more scaled version is being planned.

Check out the new pics after the break!

Update: Additional FT-05 Soar pics have been revealed courtesy of site sponsor TFSource.

30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 1996

Posted on 04-20-2014 at 12:00 PM by Sol Fury under Beast Wars
1996 With the demise of Transformers Generation 2, the Transformers brand once again faced oblivion, and this time, it looked like Transformers might disappear from store shelves worldwide. Hasbro decided to take a gamble and hand the brand over to their subsidiary, Kenner, who had made the Star Wars and Super Powers lines in the 70s and 80s, and was doing well with Batman at the time. The result was a complete rebooting of the Transformers franchise. Cars, jets and other vehicles gave way to realistic animals with molded fur texture. Subgroups disappeared and line-wide size classes were established. Articulation on a level with the Cyberjets and other later Generation 2 designs became the norm.

The Beast Wars had begun.

IDW Transformers: Phase 1 Omnibus Edition Revealed

Posted on 04-20-2014 at 07:14 AM by Sol Fury under Comics
transformers-infiltration-issue-0-cover-a_1264045808 Amazon.com has added a new preorder page for a Transformers: Phase 1 Omnibus Edition. The omnibus edition collects the entirety of the Transformers: Infiltration, Escalation and Devastation miniseries written by Simon Furman, which together kicked off the IDW Transformers comics universe. The preorder listing bills the omnibus as the "collection of the first three arcs of IDW's Transformers continuity", though it seems someone forgot a little thing called Stormbringer...

The omnibus volume presents a great way to get up to speed on the earliest part of IDW's Transformers universe. It's a paperback, priced at $21.34 and due for a release on September 16, 2014. There is no cover art available for this volume yet - so for now, enjoy this cover art from Transformers: Infiltration #0, pulled from the TFW comic resources section.

IDW Shares New Transformers Comic Information at WonderCon Panel

Posted on 04-19-2014 at 04:49 PM by Mechafire under Comics
TF-RiD28-cvrA-453f4-fe96d Comic Book Resources is bringing us the full details on what IDW shared at their WonderCon panel, which was apparently very busy and packed with fans. Leading the panel was John Barber along with Mairghread Scott, Flint Dille, and others. They each took the time to share some details about what the future of Transformers comics will hold in Robots in Disguise, Windblade, and More than Meets the Eye, and more. In addition, some other trivia was also shared. To give a brief summary...

• Some more details of how Windblade came into being
• More on the previously-reported Primacy series that Dille is writing
• Unfortunately for movie fans, it is confirmed that there will be no prequel comic for Age of Extinction
• Some details about the Transformers vs. G.I. Joe crossover comic, explaining how well it's coming along
• Barber also goes into detail about how the idea of Autobot Megatron came into being
• Who will be leading the Decepticons in Robots in Disguises' second season
• More on Soundwave's character
• On the subject of a possible My Little Pony/Transformers crossover, the response was that it had been pushed for, but there appears to be no concrete plans at the moment
• Another fan asked Barber the possibility of publishing Megatron's "gospel", Towards Peace. Unfortunately, there are no plans for that at the moment (but fingers crossed there's a chance of it happening in the future!)
• Finally, Windblade's character is gone into a little bit more

30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 1995

Posted on 04-19-2014 at 12:00 PM by Sol Fury under Generation 1
1995 And so we come to 1995, what would prove to be the final year of the Transformers Generation 2 line. 1995 brought some great new toys, and the return of the Gobots, but even with these new releases, though, the Generation 2 toyline stalled. Planned releases were cancelled, and once again, it looked like the Transformers were going away completely. Meanwhile, the Transformers line was revived in Japan, with a limited release of the new mold Generation 2 toys in new packaging, and other international markets continued onward with more toys that never made it to the US.

Posted on 04-19-2014 at 06:51 AM by SilverOptimus under Video Games
denajpg DeNA has updated their Transformers: Legends Blog to inform fans about the mobile game Transformers: Rising. Their explanation shoots down the info provided by 2P earlier this week.

The post says:

"Hey guys,

As you may have heard, there's a new DeNA game being developed titled Transformers Rising. We wanted to take a quick moment to address some of the misconceptions surrounding it.

For clarification, this game is being developed by our sister studio in China, and is in no way affiliated with, or a sequel to TRANSFORMERS: Legends.

There are currently no plans for a US release.

There is no beta testing currently going on. Claims of invitation and access to a Transformers Rising beta are completely fabricated for reasons unknown to us.

This game’s development and existence does not affect or influence TRANSFORMERS: Legends in any way. We have heard a few players suggesting that this game’s arrival will mark the end of TFL, and that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

TRANSFORMERS: Legends is running strong with a bright future ahead of it, and we want to make sure that all of our loyal players are well aware of that.

Roll out!
The TRANSFORMERS: Legends Team”

DMY Studio Classics Ultimate Battle Optimus Prime Upgrade Kit

Posted on 04-19-2014 at 06:11 AM by Sol Fury under 3rd Party Unlicensed
1378812_476604222466988_4210649884233200350_n Meteor Operation have shared some images of a new third party accessory set. This set is for the 2006 release Deluxe Classics Optimus Prime, who was available in the "Ultimate Battle" two pack and has seen a good number of reissues since, including in the Japanese Transformers United line.

The set consists of a pair of new alternate heads, an Energy Ax, a Matrix which can be held in the toy's hands and an Ion Blaster modeled on the one wielded by the original Optimus Prime. Since these are all done using 5mm pegs, the weapons and Matrix might also be compatible with your other Transformers which have 5mm fist holes - but as always remember that this is not an official Hasbro Transformers product.

30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 1994

Posted on 04-18-2014 at 12:00 PM by Sol Fury under Generation 1
1994 While 1993 was the resurrection of the Transformers brand in the US with Transformers Generation 2, it was 1994 that was its true renaissance. A very important innovation was added to the line in this year – full articulation! No longer were the Transformers just vehicles that turned into robots – now they were full-blown and fully poseable action figures! Elsewhere the Transformers Generation 2 comic concluded on a cliffhanger, and at Fort Wayne, Indiana, a group of fans gathered for a tenth anniversary party for the Transformers. The name of that party? Botcon…

BlX2ozuCcAItw1Vjpglarge In a callback to last year's variant cover, IDW has revealed it is doing a variant cover for its upcoming My Little Pony #19 crossing over Transformers and My Little Pony. The cover features Starscream with an awkward smile alongside Rainbow Dash.

The cover states it is a convention exclusive edition although information is presently unavailable on where it is exclusive to. We would guess like the previous cover though this will be available from the IDW booth at the summer conventions, including Botcon and San Diego Comic Con.

New Rise of the Dark Spark Preview from Game Informer

Posted on 04-17-2014 at 03:04 PM by Secretcode under Video Games
InvestorDay000184 If you are like me and somehow have a subscription to Game Informer, you might have received the newest issue in the mail! While the cover may be for Epic Games' Fortnite, taking a peak inside to say... Page 71 in the previews section will show you the newest preview at the latest Transformers video game.

To begin, we are given some of the first vague details about WayForward's Nintendo 3DS version of Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark. The game, as previously announced, is a grid-based tactical RPG (Think Advance Wars, or even Super Robot Wars) featuring over 50 Transformers characters. Game producer Andy Owen has stated that "Players will plot their next move on detailed strategic maps, and then engage in epic one-on-one 3D Battle sequences." A screenshot of the 3DS version has also been shown, and attached to this story.

The console and PC version of Rise of the Dark Spark has some new details as well. First, the two worlds (Movieverse and WFCverse) are connected by an ancient relic known as The Dark Spark. This relic acts as a portal between the two universes and is capable "Bending the fabric of the universe to (the wielder's) will." It has now been confirmed that the Movieverse portion of the game will take place during and after Age of Extinction, whereas the WFC/FOC portion will take place BEFORE the launch of the Ark in Fall of Cybertron. The gameplay is very similar to Fall of Cybertron, in that the story is focused on a single character and will bounce back and forth between over 40 playable characters.

Not everything is familiar, however! Edge of Reality is trying their best to help innovate and improve upon High Moon Studio's last three games. One of these new features is a Unified Leveling System where experience and unlocks are universal between Campaign and the returning Escalation mode and will feature new items, characters, weapons and upgrades. Secondly, "Power Foes" have been added to Escalation, where if your team lasts long enough, boss characters will appear (Such as Fall of Cybertron Megatron.)

Lastly, one other feature has been added called Hacks. Anyone who is familiar with the Halo series of games should feel right at home with this new feature, as these Hacks modify the gameplay by adding in additional variables to Escalation such as higher enemy health, or every robot becoming a massive explosion upon death. Sadly, there seems to be no analogue to the Grunt Birthday Party skull from Halo 3. Sorry Mechafire.

At this time there are no details on if the standard competitive Multiplayer (Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, etc) modes will be returning in the upcoming game.

30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 1993

1993 1993 arrived and Transformers were back! Transformers Generation 2 arrived in force, with a mixture of recolored and retooled old toys, and some brand new toy designs as well. For the first time since 1988, there was a Transformers cartoon on screens in the US in the form of repackaged Generation 1 reruns, and it was all topped off by the return of Transformers to comics, complete with a crossover with G.I. Joe to kick the series off. While the line was over in Japan at this time with no new toys released, Europe and the other international markets continued to lead the way for Transformers toys, with a wider range of toys released.

Masterpiece Star Saber Update From Takara

Posted on 04-17-2014 at 11:59 AM by StayingInTheBox under Transformers Masterpiece
27432379d1397751261-mp-star-saber-update-diary_ph01 We're all eagerly awaiting news of the fan voted Masterpiece Star Saber and today we got just a small tidbit of news tweeted out earlier today by Takara. Here's the good news, it looks like the development of this figure has moved past the design stage and judging by the loose translation of the tweet, development of the figure is moving forward. The design sketches that were tweeted we've previously reported on.

What does this mean for the time frame for Star Saber to be released? We can't be certain, but with the design stage done we can only guess that next year is a possible release date (although let's keep our fingers crossed for a quick, flawless turnaround!).

Check out the translation and discuss after the jump!

Takara Tomy Transformers 30th Anniversary Plans Revealed

Posted on 04-17-2014 at 03:53 AM by SilverOptimus under Generation 1
Takara-Tomy-30th-Anniversary-Optimus-Prime Another site update from Takara Tomy reveals their plans for the 30th Anniversary of the Transformers Franchise.

4 projects will be carried out to celebrate this wonderful event:

Project 1: A special edition Optimus Prime toy featuring the likeness of his G1 self (news post image). The truck and the trailer is slightly modernized but overall a good update to the Autobot Leader.

Update: As it turns out Google Translator has incorrectly translated Project 1. The G1 Optimus Prime is not a toy according to 2005 Boards Member PoweredConvoy but rather a modified actual truck and a trailer.

Project 2: Midnight Launch of Transformers Movie Advance Line on May 16th. The launch is titled "Transformers Celebration 2014" and will be held at Toys 'R' Us, Sunshine City.

Project 3: A convention titled "Transformers Expo" is also organized and is set to become the biggest Transformers Expo ever held. The expo will feature dioramas and holographic images. As a part of this project G1 colored AOE Slug will be available for purchase. For more info about the Expo and about G1 Slug, you can read our News Post.

Project 4: The 4th project is dedicated to apply an Optimus Prime inspired deco to a SUPER GT car belonging to the Team Mach. A fictional story of Optimus Prime scanning a Mach will serve as a backstory.

You can find out more at Takara Tomy. More images can be found, after the jump.

Iron Factory EX-02 Unofficial Slammer and Sixgun add-ons for Generations Metroplex

Posted on 04-17-2014 at 01:39 AM by Sol Fury under 3rd Party Unlicensed
IMG-20140417-WA0001 Third party group Iron Factory have revealed an upcoming project on their Weibo to produce an unofficial Sixgun for Generations Metroplex. You might be thinking "big deal, TFC / Before & After / X-2 Toys already did that" but this one is a bit different - for one, Metroplex's tank drone Slammer is also coming along, and both of these Slammer and Sixgun drones are around Legends size like the Scamper included with Metroplex already. Unlike other efforts, the Sixgun splits up into a series of smaller guns to power up Metroplex rather than just give him one big gun, and the set also includes a pair of additional tank drones, each of which splits into five smaller weapons to further arm Metroplex, or other Generations toys.

It's an interesting project, check out the images attached to this post.

30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 1992

Posted on 04-16-2014 at 12:00 PM by Sol Fury under Generation 1
1992 1992 was a very quiet year for the Transformers. With neither a comic nor a cartoon to support the brand, and no toy releases in the US, the line slumbered. The Japanese Transformers line, which had been running since 1985, came to its end with Operation Combination. Europe, Australia and Canada among other international markets continued to do well though, with a few more Japanese designs making it over along with some all-new toys. And although it was a quiet year, an important feature in the form of light-piped eyes would make its debut in 1992 – and would remain a feature of Transformers design off and on for the remainder of the line’s history.

New Transformers Mobile Game By DeNA - Transformers: Rising

Posted on 04-16-2014 at 10:00 AM by SilverOptimus under Video Games
Transformers-Rising-DeNA-Mobage-iOS-Android-Mobile-Game When TFW2005 revealed the title of Transformers 4 to the world for the first time, we also revealed 3 more titles belonging to the Transformers Franchise. Later we found out that some of those titles are in fact belong to several video games slated to release in 2014 and 2015. One of those titles was "Transformers: Spirits Rising".

PAX EAST EXPO 2014 concluded couple of days ago and with it we have our first look at a new Transformers Mobile Game by DeNA / Mobage (developers of Transformers: Legends) titled "Transformers: Rising".

Thanks to a video game news website named 2P, we have the scoop. According to the site:

Transformers Rising takes the story of The Transformers as the background. Players will have the chance to act as the leader of Transformers base to fight. Except inheriting the gameplay of Transformers Legends, the new mobile game will be infused into the elements of EDU and SIM games. Besides, you can experience not only the traditional PVE and PVP modes, but also two new feature modes – 'Scramble for Skill' and 'World Boss' in the game.

Transformers Rising will start CBT soon. But DeNA hasn't revealed the time yet. Moreover, the game only supports Chinese currently. English version could be later.

The game will be available on iOS and Android.

30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 1991

Posted on 04-15-2014 at 12:00 PM by Sol Fury under Generation 1
1991 The Transformers brand was effectively finished by 1991 in the US, with the last embers fading out early in the year as the long-running Marvel comic finished in both the US and the UK - with a promise that the comic would continue in the UK being utterly, cruelly dashed at the last by Marvel UK itself folding. The Transformers toyline in Japan started to slow down with fewer new toys released as Takara’s new Brave franchise found its legs and took Transformers’ place as the company’s main transforming robot action property. In Europe, Australia and Canada, some toy releases continued, with a handful of additional Action Masters, reissued original toys and even some Japanese imports. Even in this bleakest of times, the Transformers brand soldiered on.
