Posted on 09-16-2014 at 03:32 PM by StayingInTheBox under Conventions
27467940d1410898809-fss-3-0-carzap-image The Transformers Collector's Club updated their Facebook page with the next reveal in the third subscription service, this time around we get a look at Blocktown Carzap with G.B. Blackrock!

Carzap is a 1990’s unreleased Transformers Generation 2 concept from Japan, which also featured a garage/battle station building block set from Takara's unreleased Block Town line. With the help of Hasbro's Kre-O line, this set takes shape with modern figures along with a G.B. Blackrock Kreon, which many will recognize from the Marvel comic series.

Check out the new image, and if you're interested, head over to the Transformers Collectors Club homepage to find out more and sign up for the third year of the TCC figure subscription service, which will feature in addition to Carzap with G.B. Blackrock Kreon, Tarantulas, a Generation 2 Starscream, Serpent O.R., Krok with Gatoraider, and Nacelle.

Transformers 2015 Toyline Details Leaked

Posted on 09-13-2014 at 05:34 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Prime
27467266d1410639055-tf-rid-toyline-details-leaked-cyberverse-back-1 Some scans of a Hasbro products line catalog have been posted in the Transformers Colombia Facebook group. It's important to note that these listings relate to Colombia only, so there may be other toys or lines which are not planned to be released in Colombia which are therefore not listed here.

With that in mind, let's dive in and take a look at what is shown. The first headline is that in Colombia, Robots in Disguise will air on Cartoon Network and will premiere on 15 March 2015 - implying that the as-yet unknown US premiere may take place sometime before this.

The first of the three sheets shows us the Robots in Disguise 2015 line, as revealed at San Diego Comic Con 2014. The four assortments are: Warrior (Deluxe analog assortment, details are misprinted with the one-step info); Legion (Legends class figures, assortment is said to contain 12 figures which convert in 20 steps or fewer, which seems an exaggeration considering such small toys generally do not have such involved transformations). The Hyperchange assortment is also listed and described as having three-step conversions and six figures in the assortment - so similar to the current Power Battlers line. Lastly the Robots in Disguise One-Step Changers are also listed, with 14 toys said to be in the assortment.

The second and third sheets cover side-line items. The Titan figures look set to continue, with 12 inch Hero figures being planned both with and without electronic features, and a series of 6 inch Titan Guardians also being planned. The picture accompanying this listing suggests there will be a 5 pack of 6 inch Titan Guardian Seekers - Skywarp, Starscream, Thundercracker, Sunstorm and Acid Storm. There's also some information on Hero Mashers, but nothing previously unseen there (yet)

Once again a big thanks to Transformers Colombia for sharing this with the fan community.

TCC Figure Subscription Service Tarantulas Revised Promo Image

Posted on 09-12-2014 at 04:01 PM by Sol Fury under Conventions
27467080d1410545329-tcc-figure-subscription-service-tarantulas-promo-new Demonstrating that they do indeed listen to fan feedback, the TCC has posted a fresh image of their Figure Subscription Service 3.0 Tarantulas on their Facebook page. Compared to the one that we saw yesterday, this version of the Predacon mad scientist features darker colors overall, with his face and forearms reworked to better resemble how the character looked in Beast Wars.

Check out the new promo attached to this post, and check out the Transformers Collectors Club homepage to get in on the ground floor of this year's subscription service - we've been told that the numbers of figures being made this year are going to be very limited to the point that there might not be much in the way of spare stock, so act now to avoid potential disappointment later.


In the way of some extra fun, please see a comparison image of the three prospective decos of this figure - Botcon 2014 reveal, yesterday's mockup and today's revised deco - as compiled by TFW2005 member Jalaguy attached to this post.
