Nuremberg Toy Fair - First Look at Combiner Wars TITAN DEVASTATOR?

Posted on 01-28-2015 at 10:51 AM by Mechafire under Generations / Classics
1978849_603024199797087_5224819073436592702_n "JT" on Facebook via daimchoc on the 2005 Boards may have just given us our first look at the long-rumored Generations Combiner Wars Titan class Devastator from Nuremberg Toy Fair. Devastator appears to be very faithful to G1, lacking any influences from other continuities such as IDW, meaning no Prowl/"Prowlastator" here. TFW members have also noticed what looks to be his box right below him, showing six circles along its side, likely showcasing each separate component of the combiner

Also included in this image is the box of the Toys 'R' Us exclusive US release of Masterpiece Bluestreak who, from what we can tell, looks to be largely unchanged from his Takara release.

There are also some other mystery items in the image that we can't quite make out yet, but keep an eye on this post for any future updates as TFW brings you all the latest news from Nuremberg Toy Fair!

Diamond Comics Shipping List for February 4th.

Posted on 01-28-2015 at 10:15 AM by ORIO under Comics
mtmte37 2005 Board member D-Drive has been kind enough to send over the Diamond Comics shipping list for next Wednesday, February 4th. On tap for our beloved Transformers is:

TRANSFORMERS MORE THAN MEETS EYE #37 DAYS OF DECEPTION (also shipping subscription & 1-in-10 variants)

(W) James Roberts (A/CA) Alex Milne
DESPERATE MEASURES! Four million years ago, as CYBERTRON teetered on the brink of all-out war, a group of Autobots decided it was time to take matters into their own hands. Everyone concerned would subsequently agree that this was a very, very bad move...

This decal, available exclusively at the New York Comic-Con 2014, is perfect for use on car windows, laptops, tablets, and more. Made of high quality polyester and then printed, it will look great outdoors or in for a very long time! This decal features the Transformers and was limited to 250 total pieces. Get the last few not sold at the Con for your store!

Transformers GI Joe #5 was listed by IDW as coming out next week but it wasn't on my list and Diamond Comics status says it hasn't shipped yet so maybe it will ship the 11th.

Rescue Bots Blurr Revealed and Released at Hong Kong Retail

Posted on 01-28-2015 at 08:39 AM by Sol Fury under Rescue Bots
27493683d1422421246-rescue-bots-rescan-optimus-blurr-found-hong-kong-11 Here's a pleasant surprise - a new Transformers toy we knew nothing about has arrived at retail! TFW2005 member Kaiser reports that he has found a Rescue Bots version of Blurr at retail in Hong Kong. Blurr is a flashy looking purple race car with the style and aesthetics of the other recent Rescue Bots releases.

He's been found alongside the new mold Optimus Prime, who is a new sighting at retail in Hong Kong. There's been no sighting of Salvage, though, who was also previously teased as coming soon - so perhaps Blurr has raced into the new assortment ahead of Salvage?

TFW's Combiner Wars Silverbolt In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 01-27-2015 at 04:05 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Silverbolt-Robot-20 Next up, we're on to the Voyagers in our series of galleries looking at the new Combiner Wars Transformers toys, and so, here's Silverbolt! The leader of the Aerialbots with the crippling fear of heights is the first of the Generation 1 combiner team leaders to be updated for the Combiner Wars line, and he's rather cool.

Silverbolt himself is a great and faithful update of the original, right down to the passenger jet alternate mode that looks close to his original concorde alternate mode. The robot mode likewise nails the look of the original, with all the style of an updated design much as we have been seeing throughout the Combiner Wars line. Silverbolt comes with a pair of accessories - a long rifle and a shield, both of which can mount on the arms, though the rifle also fits into Silverbolt's hands. The two accessories combine into a huge weapon which can mount beneath the nose of the jet mode. It even features a fake wheel molded in to compensate for the fact it covers the landing gear when attached.

The main draw of the Combiner Wars toys, though, is combining them into a single gigantic robot, and Silverbolt serves as the torso of the combination. Any four limbs can attach to form a gigantic and poseable combined mode - and make no mistake, the big guy, Superion, can hold poses well. Even simply combining the toys is a joy to do.

Silverbolt is a great example of what the Combiner Wars line is all about. He's solid on his own, but comes into his own if you also have the Deluxe class toys to make the limbs for his combined mode. Well worth checking out - and on that note, check out our gallery at the link below:
