Mark Wahlberg committed to doing "a couple more" Transformers movies

Posted on 12-18-2014 at 06:41 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
250px-Cade Mark Wahlberg, who played the inventor Cade Yeager in this summer's Transformers: Age of Extinction, was talking to MTV and one of the things which he was asked concerned the future of the Transformers franchise. His response was as follows:

"Yeah, I committed to doing a couple more... you know I can’t speak for Mr. Bay, but something tells me we’ll be on the set soon."

By all accounts it sounds like we might see Cade Yeager make a return for at least one, maybe two more Transformers movies going forward!

Check out the video clip where this was discussed below:

Transformat - A Transformers Toyline Concept

Posted on 12-18-2014 at 02:00 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
HwnPjV4 We have something extremely cool to share with you today. Professional toy inventor Andrew Mercer (aka Caution Low Sign) got in touch with us to share a concept for a Transformers line which he created. The concept, Transformat, was a plan to celebrate the different eras of the Transformers brand with toys of characters who could shift between their classic and modern incarnations. Andrew shared this brief writeup with us to explain more:


"I started working on this concept back in 2011. Knowing that 2014 was the 30th anniversary year, I thought this line would be a cool way to celebrate the rich history of the brand. Figures that could reformat between different Generations in the same way they could Transform from robot to vehicle. That is actually where the name Transformat comes from, Transform + Reformat. Enough time has passed so I wanted to share my work with the community. I built the prototypes by cutting/pasting/customizing/painting a bunch of different toys and plastic parts, (minus Starscream who is a concept mock up using existing toys) The Optimus Prime comic artwork was done by Alex Milne and Josh Perez. These guys are true professionals and a pleasure to work with. I appreciate them keeping this concept confidential for all these years. I plan to keep working towards my goal of having Transformers concepts on the shelves for everyone to enjoy.

Thanks for having a look.

Toy Soul Convention Images of 3A and Kids Logic Bumblebee and New AOE Grimlock

Posted on 12-18-2014 at 11:07 AM by Matty under Conventions
16049046575_1c17ea7722_b The Toy Soul convention in Hong Kong is currently ongoing and we've had a few images crop up over at toy-people.com of some interesting Transformers. We've seen images prior of both the 3A Bumblebee as well as Kids Logic Bumblebee. The newest image we have is of an Age of Extinction Grimlock figure, which at this time we're unsure if this is a part of the Kids Logic toy line or if it's from the Dual Model kit line. The display appears to be around other Kids Logic displays, so for now you'll have to be the judge and decide from taking a look at the attached images!

Check it out after the jump.

Transformers Combiner Wars Voyagers In Stock at Amazon

Posted on 12-17-2014 at 03:45 PM by Tony_Bacala under Generations / Classics
combiner-prime Amazon.com listed the Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Voyager figures as IN STOCK, being sold by Amazon directly, as of earlier today. Currently they are reading as in stock on December 20th (3 days from now).

Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Voyager Class Silverbolt
Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Voyager Class Optimus Prime

They also had the new Legends in stock:

Transformers Generations Legends Class Powerglide
Transformers Generations Legends Class Windcharger
Transformers Generations Legends Class Thundercracker
Transformers Generations Legends Class Bombshell

But, they have since dropped to a 3rd party seller with a later release date. It may be worth it for those interested to keep an eye on those pages over the next days and weeks, as Amazon will update with their own stock and mark as in-stock without notice, sell out, and revert back to 3rd party pre-orders, again without notice.

Stay tuned for TFW2005's galleries for these guys, coming soon!

Platinum Edition Generation 1 Reissue Insecticons and Coneheads Coming?

Posted on 12-17-2014 at 03:21 PM by Matty under Generation 1
10453007_10203433296101161_2797456165341563111_o A bit of news just cropped up, one that has little information attached to it for now, but TFW2005 boards member Cheem The Rup has passed along images of a packaged set of Generation 1 Insecticon reissues! The original source of this news is unknown, but it appears it started from a post on /toy/ 4chan. The packaging of the Insecticons are done up in the style of recent Platinum Edition releases.

Also interesting to note is the cross sell we can clearly see on the package of a set of Generation 1 Conehead Seekers! Given how we're already seeing packaged samples of the Insecticons, we might assume these are definitely heading for release, at this time we're just not sure when or where.

As more information surfaces from official sources we will be sure to update you accordingly. Hit the discussion link below!

MP-21 Masterpiece Bumblebee Battle Mask & Coin Update

Posted on 12-17-2014 at 03:10 PM by Tony_Bacala under Transformers Masterpiece
Masterpiece-Bumblebee-Mask-16 Quick update today for TFW2005's MP-21 Masterpiece Bumblebee gallery. We've added in some additional shots of the Amazon exclusive Battle Mask and Collector's Coin. These add-on accessories were only available from Amazon Japan, but many retailers are able to source them and offer them in other markets. They come packed separately from the regular MP release, so it is otherwise unchanged.

We've uploaded the additional shots to this story, and added them into the gallery (link below) - courtesy of site sponsor TFSource! You can grab MP-21 Bumble (with or without mask) from them right now; they are in stock and shipping!

Though he has been dormant for a long time, Captain Cannonball, Scorponok, and the pirate crew of the Star Seekers have arrived to change that. Hoping to use Unicron's insatiable hunger to drain Cybertron of Energon, the pirates may have underestimated the chaosbringer's own ambitions!

Earth makes contact with an alien race-and G.I. JOE is on the front lines! But when the TRANSFORMERS arrive-well, let's just say you've never seen TRANSFORMERS or G.I. JOE like this!

Transformers: Legends Game Event - All Hail Megatron

Posted on 12-17-2014 at 09:05 AM by Matty under Video Games
tumblr_inline_ngp3d76cxf1slbwep The next Transformers event is now live! Read on for full details!

After years of war, MEGATRON and his forces had finally conquered Earth. The AUTOBOTS had been driven back to a desolate Cybertron, their mighty leader grievously injured and bereft of the Matrix of Leadership. With no one to stop them, the DECEPTICONS’ subjugation of the Earth began in earnest.

After some time, OPTIMUS PRIME, finally recovered from his injuries, puts together a team to take back the Earth from the DECEPTICONS. As they prepare their ship to depart, the INSECTICON SWARM begins their attack, throwing the AUTOBOTS into disarray until SIDESWIPE is able to intervene with the help of the larger warriors on their side.

With the ambush thwarted, the AUTOBOTS arrive on Earth and go head-to-head with STARSCREAM, SOUNDWAVE, and the rest of the DECEPTICON forces. The battle is a desperate one, with neither side gaining the advantage.

Who will reign supreme in the battle for Earth? Who will stand, and who will fall? Find out on TRANSFORMERS Legends: “All Hail Megatron”!

Transformers: Age of Extinction brought the Dinobots to the big screen - and that meant a plethora of dinos in the toyline, including seven different Dinobots along the way. We've previously shared with you a look at Voyager Grimlock and Deluxe Slug, and now they are joined in our galleries by four more of their fellow Dinobots!

TFW2005 member Russian fan contributed the first of our two galleries tonight:

Age of Extinction Deluxe Scorn Gallery

Seeing Russian fan's excellent work on these two, TFW's admin Sol Fury was inspired to dig into his toybox and so we also share with you a couple of his photoshoots:

Posted on 12-16-2014 at 06:26 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Transformers-Combiner-Wars-Voyager-Optimus-Prime-Robot_1416041938 Some news now which will no doubt delight many German Transformers fans - German site Starblight is reporting that the Generations Combiner Wars series, which recently arrived in the UK, is also set to come to Germany and quite potentially the rest of Europe.

Starblight reports that Toys R Us Germany has confirmed they will be getting the new series of Generations, including the first wave assortments of Voyagers, Deluxes and apparently Legends. An exact delivery date is not given, but it is expected "late December, or January 2015 at the latest".

This is potentially also good news for the rest of Europe, who might also get to see the Combiner Wars released on the continent at around this same time.

Check out the original report on Starblight.
