TFW's Age of Extinction Optimus Prime Rusty Version (Toys R Us Japan Exclusive) Gallery

Posted on 08-27-2014 at 04:51 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
RustyOptimusPrime32_3 We've got another great Transformers toy gallery to share with you tonight. Courtesy of TFW2005 photo staff member SydneyY, we have a look at the Takara-Tomy Toys R Us exclusive Age of Extinction "Rusty Version" Optimus Prime!

Based on Optimus Prime's evasion mode, used to hide from those hunting him in the new movie, this Toys R Us Japan exclusive release recolors Optimus into a cream deco with plentiful "rust" paint applications. The truck mode is extremely effective in this deco! In robot mode, Optimus features a whole lot of white and looks a bit less "grimey" than his normal truck might. There's a new headsculpt used for this version of the toy too - a full on faceplate version of the movie Optimus head is featured here, rather than the "mouth" head of the mass retail releases.

All in all, this release features an excellent take on the truck mode, but we feel the robot mode might be a bit divisive come the finish. Check out the awesome photos that SydneyY has done for us and judge for yourself!

Posted on 08-27-2014 at 03:44 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
securedownload-2_zpsab7b7235 By way of 2005 Boards member Timothy.R we have a sighting of a whole swarm of Age of Extinction Leader class Bumblebee! The leader class Bumblebee is the third Leader class toy released for the Age of Extinction line, and is a re-release of the Dark of the Moon toy, without the MechTech weapon. Definitely one for the completists, or the fans of 'bee! He was found at Costco in Montgomeryville, PA.

Age of Extinction Platinum Silver Knight Optimus Prime Released in the US

Posted on 08-27-2014 at 02:46 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
27463527d1409119838-minnesota-transformers-sightings-image We've got a new Transformers toy sighting for you today folks. TFW2005 member Jertallica reports finding the Platinum Edition Silver Knight Optimus Prime at the Plymouth Target in Minnesota.

This Silver Knight Optimus Prime is a redeco of the huge First Edition Age of Extinction Optimus Prime. As you can see from Jertallica's pic, this figure has a striking mix of silver plastic and silver chrome. While it's not for everyone, this figure seems to be very much the definitive version of the Silver Knight Optimus Prime concept that Target has been running for their exclusives this movie.

Masterpiece Star Saber Brainmaster Images

Posted on 08-27-2014 at 07:08 AM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
0cfa9e95c9682fef7844ed3af9b84703_zps86759bb4 Via the twitter account of Hisashi yuki, we have a look at the prototype of the Brainmaster "Brain of Courage" driver figure for Masterpiece Star Saber. This figure is a tiny little partner accessory roughly the size of a Diaclone driver - while unlike the original, he does not contain the face of Saber, his other interactions with the new Masterpiece Star Saber remain intact!

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.

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!
