Hot Toys Optimus Prime - Megatron Version

10568922_739291372783940_914750257229070914_n The jam packed San Diego Comic Con weekend brought forth a ton of new and exciting reveals for Transformers fans. Somewhat buried among the "Combiner Wars" and new Robots In Disguise 2.0 reveals is another version of the recently revealed Hot Toys Optimus Prime. Some images have been floating around of a second version and thanks to TFW2005 boards member Cheem The Rup we've learned of the Megatron version of this Hot Toys release.

It's not certain what this figure is referencing, other than Optimus Prime simply slinging Megatron parts onto his frame, but we'll be sure to update you as we learn more information about this release.

Transformers Universe Swagger & Diabla Introduction Videos & Info

Posted on 07-25-2014 at 01:26 PM by Mechafire under Video Games
meet-swagger-large Some new details have been posted on the Transformers Universe website about some new characters featured in the game - Swagger and Diabla. Check it:

Meet Swagger and Diabla

The faction war intensifies between the Autobots and Decepticons with the reveal of the latest two warriors, available to recruit in the next game update.

When his mentor left him, Autobot Swagger had to fend for himself and learn how to fight the hard way. This led to an unorthodox style, combining dazzling swordsmanship with high-tech gadgetry. Over-confidence is now this Autobot's weakness, and his biggest challenge is keeping his mouthplate shut. Only under the right command can he stealth like a shinobi, and strike like a samurai! Find out more about him on the video below and his full bio page.

Swagger intro video

Decepticon Diabla is notoriously corrupt and devious, and an archenemy to the entire Autobot army. Small and unassuming at first glance, enemies that get too close will find their systems failing, their Energon depolarized, and an arm blade planted in their mainframe. Find out more about her on the video below and her full bio page.

Diabla intro video

Both of these warriors come with a new vehicle form – motorbikes! Feel the increased agility and ease of making a getaway.

SDCC 2014 - Hasbro Transformers Panel LIVE!

_DSC6507 TFW2005 is live in San Diego for the SDCC 2014 Transformers Panel! Check the box below for live coverage of the panel as it's happening, and keep an eye on this story (LINK) for incoming pictures. Refresh every couple minutes for new ones!

Keep in mind this is all dependent on technology working, signals being available, and being allowed to do so. If we can, we will below. Panel starts at 11AM Pacific. Stay tuned!

Read on for the full script of our coverage, and lots of pics!

Key points -

Generations 2014 theme is Combiner Wars. Deluxes form limbs, Voyagers form torsos - everyone combines. That includes the new Voyager Optimus Prime, plus the other two Voyagers, Silverbolt and Motormaster. All four smaller Stunticons and Aerialbots - some with updated names / designs - are coming out in the first two waves of the new line. The Legends, like Powerglide, will interact with the combiners - Powerglide forms up as a gun for Superion for example. Combining is universal though so you can mix and match at will. The theme will tie in to the IDW comics.

Robots in Disguise (2015 cartoon) is getting a toyline, with One Step Changers, Legion / Legends and Warrior / Deluxe class toys confirmed. The show will be revisiting some of the Transformers Prime cast, but not until season 2.

Age of Extinction Slog will get a Generation 1 themed deco as an Amazon exclusive.

Walmart will get an Age of Extinction scene pack, Bumblebee VS Stinger.

SDCC 2014 - Update From Steve Jablonsky

Posted on 07-24-2014 at 09:41 AM by SilverOptimus under San Diego Comic Con
Steve-Jablonsky-SDCC-2014 Composer Steve Jablonsky has made some announcements regarding San Diego Comic-Con 2014 and the CD release of Transformers: Age Of Extinction Score.

The first one informs us that he's at SDCC this year to handout some "goodies" to the fans. Online fans can get them too.

"Heading down to Comic Con today, really looking forward to meeting everyone. I'm bringing some goodies with me to give away after the panel, which gave me an idea for everyone who is not able to attend. I was thinking I might tweet out pictures of Comic Con craziness, seems like a fun way to get more into Twitter. But what if I randomly throw in a Transformers question, and the first person to reply with the right answer will receive a signed score page. Don't worry the questions will be easy

If anyone is interested you'll find me over on Twitter under the name @jablonsky_steve

Hopefully I'll meet some of you in person down in San Diego!


The second announcement is about the CD release of the TF4 Score...

"And by the way, for those asking about an Age of Extinction CD release, I am doing everything I can to make it happen. There are a lot of factors that go into a studio's decision whether or not to release physical copies of a movie score. They definitely lean towards digital releases. It's less expensive and that is just the way things are headed now. I have made my argument that there are still a lot of soundtrack fans out there who appreciate holding a real CD in their hands, and appreciate listening to CD quality audio. I am doing everything I can.

I do have some copies of the original TF1 score, I know there are some people who were not able to get a copy before it went out of print. I'll sign a couple of those for this weekend's Comic Con tweet fest Watch out for questions at @jablonsky_steve

Thanks to all of you for the love and support.

Transformers Bearbrick Crossovers Optimus Prime and Megatron In Hand

Posted on 07-23-2014 at 02:13 PM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
20140723005256f27 Alfes2010 has updated his blog with some in-hand pics of the Transformers Bearbrick (or rather, Be@rbrick) Transformers crossovers figures, Optimus Prime and Megatron. These figures start out like cute, dumpy, cartoon bear versions of their classic selves, but like many a piece of Transformers merchandise - they transform into more traditionally proportioned robot modes! Judging by the scale of the accessories they are pictured with, the pair are roughly Legends sized and very poseable. Check out these in-hand images - they're out in Japan now with a future assortment adding Starscream and Bumblebee into the mix.

Official Hot Toys G1 Optimus Prime Figure (Starscream Version)!

Posted on 07-23-2014 at 08:44 AM by Mechafire under Generation 1
10561544_10152201016117344_759091453385653270_n Hot Toys' Facebook page has just revealed their newest product - Hot Toys Optimus Prime! A non-transforming G1 Optimus Prime figure, this product is also labeled as being the "Starscream Version", as it bizarrely enough is packaged with a bunch of G1 Starscream-based accessories including a bonus SDCC exclusive severed Starscream head. It also comes with a ground display diorama with the Autobot logo emblazoned on it.

For those not aware of the Starscream reference, the Generation 1 episode "Megatron's Masterplan" showed Decepticons masquerading as Autobots to discredit them, which showed a scene of Starscream as Optimus Prime with wings out.

From Hot Toys:

“One shall stand, one shall fall"

Under license from Hasbro, Inc., Hot Toys is proud to present the Optimus Prime (Starscream Version) Collectible Figure from the classic and highly popular THE TRANSFORMERS GENERATION 1.

The Optimus Prime (Starscream Version) Collectible Figure stands approximately 30cm tall, featuring a highly detailed mechanical structure and remarkable painting applications with distress effect, a pair of Starscream’s wings, weapons, and a rocky ground diorama base with Autobots’ logo.

THE TRANSFORMERS GENERATION 1 fans shouldn’t miss the chance to pre-order this cool collectible figure!

Pre-ordering at Ani-Com will include a Starscream head as bonus accessory.

Hong Kong customers please stay tuned on Hot Toys-Secret Base Facebook Page for pre-order arrangement details.

Million Hero Generations Volume 2 Figure Exclusive Poll Results

Posted on 07-22-2014 at 11:30 AM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
pre9eUu Million hero have updated their blog with the results of the blog which they recently held to determine the exclusive Transformers mail-away figure with the upcoming Transformers Generations Volume 2 book. Narrowly topping the poll by less than 0.5% of the vote is Go-Shooter from the 1988 series Transformers Chojin Masterforce, redecoed from Generations Nightbeat. Narrowly behind in second place was Alpha Trion, a redeco of the Generations Scourge, and then, with just under 15% of the vote, we find the Beast Wars Fuzor Silverbolt themed redeco of Beast Hunters Grimwing.

Bad news for those hoping for some Omnibots though - the trio of Autobots who were mail-away exclusives back in the 80s took less than 5% of the vote between them, with Camshaft in last place.

Masterpiece Star Saber First Prototype Images

Posted on 07-22-2014 at 12:05 AM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
Masterpiece-Star-Saber Scans from the latest Japanese magazines have begun to circulate online - and in an exciting twist, this latest batch of hobby magazines contains our very first look at Masterpiece Star Saber!

This magazine scan shows Masterpiece Star Saber in both robot and spaceship mode. In robot mode, he comes armed with his Saber Blade, and it is evident from this image he's already got the original Star Saber outdone for poseability. What's more, the magazine scan shows that the smaller jet / robot Transformer who forms the core of Star Saber, Saber, is also included and looks very sharp.

This makes Star Saber the first Masterpiece Transformer to feature the longstanding Transformer gimmick of "smaller transforming robot who combines with a trailer to form a super robot" and he appears to do it extremely well. The innermost robot figure in this Transformers series of Russian dolls, the core Brainmaster, is discussed in the accompanying text but is not yet confirmed, though we'd imagine it will be included since it was a key feature of the original.

Check out the latest scan which comes via aloadofhupla on Twitter after the break.

Transformers Angry Birds Toy Images

Posted on 07-21-2014 at 12:57 PM by Sol Fury under Other News
Optimus-Prime-Bird-Raceway-2 Toys R Us had (briefly) posted a pair of entries on their website product catalog for the Transformers Angry Birds series! Through these we have our first look at the toys for this line, and possibly a fresh clue as to what the game itself might involve.

The first set is the Optimus Prime Bird Raceway, a $39.99 set which comes with an Ultimate Optimus Prime bird and an Ultimate Megatron pig. Yes, they seem to be using the actual Transformers names and not the cute reimaginings we reported had been the subject of a trademark application recently. The bird raceway is a racetrack set that launches the toys down a 35ft track - where only one gets to cross the finish line.

The other set is a set of five racers titled the Energon Racers Pack. This pack has Angry Bird versions of Optimus, Grimlock, Lockdown, Starscream and Soundwave, and retails for $29.99.

Both sets also include a Matrix styled telepod which connects to the toys to unlock the characters for play in the game. The toys themselves transform from vehicle - driven by the respective Angry Bird or Bad Piggie - into robot forms with the bird or pig as the head. Speculation is there might be some kind of Bot Shot style transformation going on there, but nothing confirmed as yet.

Hasbro Collaborates With Shapeways To Sell 3D Printed Artwork

Posted on 07-21-2014 at 10:28 AM by SilverOptimus under San Diego Comic Con
21Printing1-master675 Hasbro just announced a partnership with Shapeways regarding a new initiative where Official and Fan Art will be 3D Printed and sold as official Hasbro products. The announcement first came from Hasbro's 2014 2nd Quarter Financial Conference Call and Shapeways followed it with an official statement from their end. Though the initiative begins with My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, the company plans to expand into other Hasbro brands which might include Transformers.

"Once we have filled our 3D printers with community designed ponies, we will continue to work with Hasbro and the Shapeways community to enable more Hasbro branded content to be created, 3D printed and sold.

This is a major step forward in realizing the creative potential of 3D printing, to make products on demand that might otherwise never make it into people’s hands. Hasbro has been incredibly forward thinking and open minded, to realize that the existing unmet demand within their fan base can be satisfied with the help of those very same fans. We expect to see many more partnerships like this, to enable user generated content to be 3D printed based on existing intellectual property, with fair attribution and compensation for all parties involved. We've seen this model work successfully in the digital realm, and we’re thrilled to be leading the charge in the physical."

The designs (Fan Art) must be cleared with Hasbro to ensure they are not obscene, violent or hateful, but otherwise, the artists largely have free rein. Even the price for the figurines will be set by the artists.

For more info, visit SuperFanArt.
