Angry Birds: Transformers Update Brings New Characters And New Features

Posted on 03-27-2015 at 06:43 AM by SilverOptimus under Video Games
Angry-Birds-Transformers-Stella-Arcee Angry Birds: Transformers Mobile Game was updated today, bringing new characters and new areas to unlock.

Strangely, no official notice was made regarding the update other than the fact that a Bug Fix was done to improve the stability and performance. However, 2005 Boards Member MrByatis is bringing us the information and images from the update.

First of all, two new characters are introduced to the game and both of them represented by Stella. One character is Blackarachnia from Transformers: Animated and the other one being Arcee (finally!!!) who was teased for so long on the old Loading Screen. Rovio released two games based on Stella recently and we can assume that this is the reason why Arcee was delayed.

Other features include:
  • New areas to be unlocked on the map
  • New Challenges
  • Skywarp Airfield Repair Functionality (requires 5000 coins)
  • New Loading Screen image
  • New Jenga modes
  • Character weapons and abilities changed
  • New character animations when thanking buddies

Update: We have an update for the Angry Birds: Transformers game update (Ha!). 2005 Boards Member Cax6ton is informing us that the long awaited Cloud Saving feature is now active on the game (again, finally!). Hopefully this means no more lost progress due to various circumstances such as game updates, OS updates and random loss of game data.

The new update is rolling out on the Android platform at the moment and our members who are using the iOS platform confirmed that the update is not yet available for them. Patience, folks… it will come.

Check out the screenshots by MrByatis, after the jump.

TFW's Combiner Wars Dead End In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 03-26-2015 at 06:06 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Dead-End-Robot-27 With the news that we are getting a Combiner Wars Wildrider as a repaint of Dead End, now seemed like a great time to share a look at Combiner Wars Dead End!

Dead End is a sports car, and a sharp looking one at that. The robot transformation is actually quite straightforward, but one thing I liked on the transformation was the way the legs rotated around, in a manner that somewhat recalls the style of the original toy's transformation. Robot mode is decent, with a good range of articulation, and big feet mean it is easy to pose Dead End. Special mention should go to the glorious shade of red used, which nicely evokes the deco of the original Dead End. I also liked his weapon, a smokestack. Among a line of toys with huge guns, swords, guns that double up as swords and so forth, it is refreshing to see a character going to battle with what is, essentially, a lead pipe to bludgeon his enemies.

Overall, the Combiner Wars Dead End is a decent release. He's solid and has some cool touches. Check out our gallery and see for yourself:

Record Store Day 2015 exclusive: Shockwave discography

Posted on 03-26-2015 at 06:04 PM by KidDynamite under Other News
shockwave_1 Now here's an interesting entry, and something of a blast from the past. Revelation Records has announced a Record Store Day 2015 vinyl reissue of the entire discography of the 90's era Erie PA hardcore band Shockwave. For those that don't remember, Shockwave was a Transformers themed band through and through, with albums and songs named after Transformers, G1 audio samples, and a band logo featuring a masked Decepticon symbol.

The record is called The World is Ours: The Complete Recordings and is on double clear vinyl 12" in a gatefold sleeve. In a really nice touch, it also includes a clear red flexi 7" that can be used as a tech spec decoder on the album art.


This looks like a really nice and certainly unexpected release from this long dormant band. Check out the reveal video after the jump.

Play With This Too Desolataur Painted Prototype

Posted on 03-26-2015 at 03:15 PM by Sol Fury under 3rd Party Unlicensed
PWTT-Des-8 Play With This Too have shared images of their action figure styled take on Generation 1 Skullgrin, Desolataur, with merely three days left on their Kickstarter program. These images show a 3D printed version of Desolataur, so it's not the final product which will be smoother, but gives an impression of what the final release might be like. There are a lot of images of the prototype, which you can check out on the group's Facebook page - we've attached a few of the best and most insightful here.

Play With This Too is a new third party group, made up of former Hasbro staff and other toy industry veterans including Rik Alvarez and Aaron Archer. Find out more about the Kickstarter campaign here.

Takara Reveals MP-18B Bluestreak!

Posted on 03-25-2015 at 11:25 PM by Matty under Transformers Masterpiece
4904810827825 It's happening! TakaraTomyMall has just revealed a Masterpiece figure that will surely send fans into a frenzy: MP-18B Bluestreak! That's right, it's a blue Bluestreak! This deco is based on the Diaclone figure and has been a color scheme desperately wanted by the fanbase.

According to the web page, it looks like this will be a limited release of about 2,000 and available in Japan, likely as a web or other type of exclusive, so it may be one of the more difficult pieces to obtain.

Check out the photos after the jump!

More than Meets the Eye #39 iTunes Preview

Posted on 03-25-2015 at 06:42 PM by Sol Fury under Comics
cover225x225 The highly anticipated More than Meets the Eye #39 is coming in two weeks time, on April 8th - and iTunes has just added a preview of this next instalment of the saga. Issue #39 is titled "Return of the D.J.D." and delivers on that promise from the word go, with the members of the Decepticon punishment squad appearing prominently in these three pages. Fans be warned, there's something of a spoiler on page 3 - though those who enjoy trying to put all the pieces of the plot together will eat this one right up!

Mark your calendars, it's April 8th for More than Meets the Eye #39, the return of the Decepticon Justice Division, and the introduction of Deszaras / Deathsaurus into the IDW Transformers universe!
