TFW2005's Botcon 2014 Exclusives In-Hand Galleries - Part 2

Posted on 08-17-2014 at 10:14 AM by Sol Fury under Conventions
Botcon-2014-Knights-Group It's time to share with you the second part of our galleries of the Botcon 2014 show exclusives!

For part 2, we'll dive in and take a look at the at-show exclusives, which paid homage to some of the many exclusive characters from past Botcons. They were sold in three sets - a "Knights set" which consisted of Alpha Trizer, Flareup and Apelinq, a "Pirate set" which included Hunter and Brimstone, and a troop builder set of Cannonball's Dread Pirate Crew (aka Vehicon redecos based on Decepticon clones Pounce and Wingspan).

Oreo Transformers Giveaway - Scorn and High Octane Bumblebee

Posted on 08-17-2014 at 07:17 AM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
10557229_10202232054554957_1810861608106561803_n Via the Transformers Colombia Facebook group and Transformers Peru, we can share some additional news on the Oreo Transformers giveaway currently taking place in South America. TFW2005 and Transformers Peru member Neo-Bombshell has shared with us some additional information on the promotion - when you purchase three specially marked six-packs you got a poster from participating supermarkets. Each Oreo comes with a sticker for the album which also featured a code to input on the to the Ganaoreo site in order to win various prizes.

By accounts it seems that all four of the Deluxes in the first assortment are up for grabs - that's Scorn, High Octane Bumblebee, Crosshairs and Slug - but none of them come with their weapons other than Bumblebee's missile. They instead come with some Oreos! Other prizes included three First Edition Optimus Primes from Age of Extinction, Age of Extinction Optimus Prime and Bumblebee masks, and tickets to see AoE in theaters.

With thanks to Neo Bombshell, we can share with you some pictures of the various promotional materials that came with this campaign, including an Optimus Prime standee, an OreTruck complete with Decepticon symbol, the poster with all the stickers and a special promotional box containing three six packs of Oreos with pre-cut silhouettes of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. We're told that last one was a bit less popular due to the fact it was more expensive than buying the six-packs individually.

TFW2005's Botcon 2014 Exclusives In-Hand Galleries - Part 1

Posted on 08-16-2014 at 05:09 PM by Sol Fury under Conventions
Botcon-2014-Boxed-Set-Group Here's an update that has been a long time coming - our full galleries of the Botcon 2014 show exclusives! 2014's Botcon set theme was "Pirates VS Knights", a concept which boiled down to a new faction being added to the lore - Alpha Trizer's new Knights of Cybertron were introduced, facing off against Cannonball and his Star Seeker space pirates!

We'll be posting these galleries in two parts, and for part 1, we're bringing you a look at this year's boxed set of Scorponok, Cannonball, Ferak, Ginrai and Devcon - five toys that all stand on their own as great designs (especially the Scorponok). We'll also be giving you a look at the attendee exclusive, Flamewar, and the completed customization class figure, Primal Prime.

Kelsey Grammer Explains A Deleted Scene From Transformers: Age Of Extinction

Posted on 08-16-2014 at 02:05 PM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Harold-Attinger-Kelsey-Grammer-Transformers-4-Age-Of-Extinction-Michael-Bay 2014 is a great year for Kelsey Grammer. And he sat down with Yahoo to talk about it. This is what he had to say about Transformers: Age Of Extinction

Grammer had to leave the Transformers set to film his Expendables role but said, “Michael Bay was cool about it.” Like Stallone, Bay was also cool about line changes, telling him at one point, “You’re Kelsey Grammer. You can do whatever you want.”

Grammer’s most physical action scene involved throwing a Chinese man out of a car. It was eventually cut, though Grammer explained that Bay isn’t entirely to blame. “It was very violent, and it looked very violent.… Apparently the Chinese government had some input on these things, and they just didn’t want to see a Chinese national get thrown out of the car [laughs] — and then subsequently run over.”

Grammer got a glimpse of the Bay method during the shooting of one action scene as Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, and Jack Reynor were given a shock to the system by the infamously precocious director. “They start running, and Michael did not let them know how big the explosions were going to be. He said to me, ‘Watch this! Look! They’re really terrified. Look how fast they’re running!’”

Hot Toys Optimus Prime (Starscream Version) Official Images

Posted on 08-16-2014 at 12:33 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
902246-optimus-prime-starscream-version-006 Hot Toys have updated their website with new official images, plus pricing and an expected release date, for their Optimus Prime - Starscream Version. The debut Transformers release from Hot Toys gives us a typically super-detailed design which Hot Toys are known for, along with some bizarre Starscream themed accessories which we can only assume the Hot Toys Optimus Prime plundered from the unconscious Decepticon Air Commander following a battle.

Like most Hot Toys releases, their Optimus Prime comes with a premium price of $344.99 - but the good news is release is not expected until July 2015, so you have plenty of time to save up. Our sponsors Big Bad Toy Store have a preorder open now - check it out!

Hasbro And Shapeways To Sell 3D Printed Transformers Artwork

Posted on 08-15-2014 at 01:55 PM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
my-little-pony-superfanart-by-hasbro-and-shapeways You may remember that back in last July, we reported a new venture by Hasbro; where Shapeways (a company working with 3D printed material) would 3D print Fan Art based on Hasbro properties. Though it was initiated with My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, our members speculated that in the future we will see Transformers as well.

Sure enough, thanks to an Email received by 2005 Boards Member chroma23, Hasbro confirms that the new project will expand into Transformers.

Future projects include:
  • Dragonvale
  • Dungeons & Dragons
  • Monopoly
  • My Little Pony [already implemented]
  • Scrabble (to be sold in US and Canada only)
  • Transformers

You can read the entire letter, after the jump.

TCC 2015 Exclusive Marissa Faireborn with Afterburner Toy Reveal

Posted on 08-15-2014 at 09:48 AM by StayingInTheBox under Conventions
1463934_759233340802313_2967393103125218293_n The Transformer's Collector's Club announced yesterday their second store exclusive figure to be Marissa Faireborn with Afterburner. As expected we have our first look at the actual toy representation of this character posted just now to the TCC's Facebook page.

From the TCC: The first "mock up" reveal of the TCC exclusive MARISSA FAIREBORN and AFTERBURNER vehicle! Join the Club so you will be able to pre-order when available. The final version will vary.

From what we can tell so far, this exclusive appears to come from the following GI Joe molds: the non-transforming Afterburner vehicle is the Wheel Blaster Bike from Firefly in the Retaliation movie line. The torso looks to be a combination of Resolute Scarlet while the head and legs is GIJCC Cover Girl/DTC Cover Girl. We'll update accordingly once new information is passed along. Hat tip to TFW member Computron34 for the assist.

What do you think of the full reveal? Let us know after the jump!
