Rescue Bots Blurr Revealed and Released at Hong Kong Retail

Posted on 01-28-2015 at 08:39 AM by Sol Fury under Rescue Bots
27493683d1422421246-rescue-bots-rescan-optimus-blurr-found-hong-kong-11 Here's a pleasant surprise - a new Transformers toy we knew nothing about has arrived at retail! TFW2005 member Kaiser reports that he has found a Rescue Bots version of Blurr at retail in Hong Kong. Blurr is a flashy looking purple race car with the style and aesthetics of the other recent Rescue Bots releases.

He's been found alongside the new mold Optimus Prime, who is a new sighting at retail in Hong Kong. There's been no sighting of Salvage, though, who was also previously teased as coming soon - so perhaps Blurr has raced into the new assortment ahead of Salvage?

TFW's Combiner Wars Silverbolt In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 01-27-2015 at 04:05 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Silverbolt-Robot-20 Next up, we're on to the Voyagers in our series of galleries looking at the new Combiner Wars Transformers toys, and so, here's Silverbolt! The leader of the Aerialbots with the crippling fear of heights is the first of the Generation 1 combiner team leaders to be updated for the Combiner Wars line, and he's rather cool.

Silverbolt himself is a great and faithful update of the original, right down to the passenger jet alternate mode that looks close to his original concorde alternate mode. The robot mode likewise nails the look of the original, with all the style of an updated design much as we have been seeing throughout the Combiner Wars line. Silverbolt comes with a pair of accessories - a long rifle and a shield, both of which can mount on the arms, though the rifle also fits into Silverbolt's hands. The two accessories combine into a huge weapon which can mount beneath the nose of the jet mode. It even features a fake wheel molded in to compensate for the fact it covers the landing gear when attached.

The main draw of the Combiner Wars toys, though, is combining them into a single gigantic robot, and Silverbolt serves as the torso of the combination. Any four limbs can attach to form a gigantic and poseable combined mode - and make no mistake, the big guy, Superion, can hold poses well. Even simply combining the toys is a joy to do.

Silverbolt is a great example of what the Combiner Wars line is all about. He's solid on his own, but comes into his own if you also have the Deluxe class toys to make the limbs for his combined mode. Well worth checking out - and on that note, check out our gallery at the link below:

Transformers: Animated The Complete AllSpark Almanac Cover & New Details

Posted on 01-26-2015 at 08:08 PM by Mechafire under Animated
The-Complete-AllSpark-Almanac-cover---Marcelo-Matere-3 Jim Sorenson has just put out a hefty update for the Transformers: Animated The Complete AllSpark Almanac on his blog, Disciples of Boltax. First up, we have the new cover itself, drawn by Marcelo Matere and colored by Josh Perez. Secondly, Jim confirms that the book will include The AllSpark Almanac Addendum which was assembled for the Transformers Collectors' Club magazine, and about ten pages of new content teasing more of what Season 3.5 might look like. Here's the full quote form Jim himself:

"It looks like The Complete AllSpark Almanac is just three short weeks away, with an ETA of February 18th at fine comic book stores everywhere. (Probably hitting Amazon shortly thereafter, available for preorder now.) Here's Marcelo Matere's beautiful cover for the book, with excellent Josh Perez colors. (Josh also lent his talents to some of the new bonus material inside the book.)

For those of you who missed our Radio Free Cybertron interview, this is going to be a massive, 472 page tome that combines The AllSpark Almanac, The AllSpark Almanac II, The AllSpark Almanac Addenda we put together for the Transformers Collectors' Club, and ten-ish pages of new content teasing more of what Season 3.5 might look like. We worked closely with Derrick Wyatt to ensure that the book was as close to 100% canon as possible, with all new material carefully vetted (and a bit of old material tweaked or recontextualized.) I hope that you all get a big kick out of this one. V1 and V2 are insanely hard to find and fetch ridiculous prices on the secondary market, so it's very nice to get this material back in print where everyone can get a copy."

The book will be available in three weeks, on February 18 - be sure to pick yours up!

b3 Let's continue the Transformers Collector's Club news with some more in-hand images of upcoming figures, this time from the third installment of the Transformers Subscription Service.

Also, TFW2005 boards member cobra zartan has linked us to even more images of both Carzap (who we see packaged in plastic bags) and Krok! We can't be absolutely sure if these are final, but if history repeats itself these are likely what fans will be receiving.

Are these going to be the first two figures released for TFSS 3.0? Stay tuned!

812539118_o eBay seller lena81822 has put up an auction for a loose Lio Convoy figure, our first look at the Transformers Collector's Club free membership figure of 2015. Although this figure is not officially released yet to the masses and changes to the figure could occur, it's worth pointing out that this is also our first look at a modified head sculpt, which is different from the promotional images we first saw back in July 2014.

How close to a final figure do you believe this is? How about that head sculpt? Sound off with the discussion link below!

Robots in Disguise Warriors Optimus Prime and Drift found at US retail

Posted on 01-26-2015 at 04:07 PM by Sol Fury under Robots In Disguise (201x)
15755334593_382f1df824_o We've got a sighting of more hot new toys from the new Robots in Disguise series for you! The second assortment of Warriors has begun to appear at US retail. TFW2005 member Sioce spotted Optimus Prime at a Target in Temecula, CA. We've not got confirmation on a sighting of Drift, but it's safe to say that Drift should also be out in the wild, given the pair are shipping together as the two new figures in Warrior Wave 2. A big thanks to Sioce for the sighting and Silvershot for flagging it up with us!
