New Upcoming Takara Figure Images - Armor Knight Optimus Prime, Legends Fembots, And More

Posted on 10-21-2014 at 11:16 PM by Mechafire under Japanese Transformers
fo20113 Via TAG Hobby, we have new images from the latest Figure King magazine, showing off a few upcoming Takara Transformers. Among them are some new looks at the the Armor Knight Optimus Prime, Legends Arcee, Chromia and Windblade, Black Knight Dinobots Scorn, Strafe, and Slug, and also in-package shots of Masterpiece Bumblebee and a few other upcoming Takara Legends releases.

As can be seen here, all of these figures are done up to be more accurate to their past fictional depictions - Optimus has extensive remolding to resemble how he looked in AOE more, Arcee and Chromia have been colored to better match their G1 cartoon appearances, and Windblade has paint apps specifically matching the way she's been drawn by Sarah Stone in the IDW comics.

A few interesting tidbits can also be gleaned from what we see of Armor Knight Optimus here - it seems his face does not change by way of a simple removable faceplate as many had speculated, but by having two alternate faces built into his head. He also appears to have new boxart and comes already-posed in his famous AOE stance in the box.

Check 'em out and discuss after the break!

Q Transformers New Figures Revealed

Posted on 10-21-2014 at 07:57 PM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
r4fYLaC Our sponsors Big Bad Toy Store have listed a whole bunch of preorders for the Q Transformers series. These preorders cover the next couple assortments of these Transformers who convert into Choro Q styled vehicles.

In sequence, we have:

Q Transformers Movie Series 1 - assortment contains Age of Extinction Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Crosshairs and Lockdown

Q Transformers Generation 1 Series 1 - featuring Generation 1 inspired versions of Prowl, Sideswipe, Bumblebee and Hot Rod / Rodimus

Q Transformers Series 2 - features Wheeljack, Jazz, Red Alert, Sunstreaker, Smokescreen and what looks like Alternity Convoy

Q Transformers Series 3 which includes Age of Extinction Nemesis Prime, Generation 1 Tracks, what we'd imagine must be Bluestreak by process of elimination, and a fourth figure who is probably either Skids or Hound (head looks like Hound, vehicle looks more like Skids).

There's pictures of all of these which we've attached to this story - some are still early days prototypes though. Check them all out after the break.

Transformers: Age of Extinction - Big Robots, Big Sounds Featurette

Posted on 10-21-2014 at 12:14 PM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Variety has posted a Transformers: Age Of Extinction Featurette on their You Tube Channel. Titled Big Robots, Big Sounds, the clip features sound designing for Transformers 4.

Michael Bay likes everything to look and sound cool. But as Variety's Tim Gray learned from sound re-recording mixers Greg P. Russell and Scott Millan, cooler doesn't always mean louder.

Posted on 10-21-2014 at 08:58 AM by ORIO under 3rd Party Unlicensed
MMCAzaleaAsterisks 3rd party group, Mastermind Creations, has taken the time stop by our 3rd party forum and update us with their next exclusive release. This coming weekend at the first ever TFcon Chicago, Mastermind will release an exclusive version of their fembot figure, R-08 Azalea. Azalea Asterisk mode will be available at the Renderform and friends booth. The full figure has not been revealed, but Renderform owner Venksta hints that the figure is based on one of the back ground characters in the Generation 1 episode "The Search for Alpha Trion". This narrows are choices down to one of two characters. It is either "Greenlight", the green fembot, or "Lancer" the purple and orange fembot. Could the box for this figure be an indication?

We'll see this weekend, along with other 3rd party reveals, at TFcon Chicago. Click the title bar to discuss!
