Masterpiece Star Saber core robot new images

Posted on 08-30-2014 at 09:07 AM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
BwQlPLyCQAEJqWa Hishashi Yuki has tweeted some new images of Masterpiece Star Saber. In these new images we can see the core robot, Saber, folded up into the mode where he forms the chest of the combined Star Saber supermode. There's a comparison shot with the original Star Saber's chest - demonstrating again that the new one is a little smaller but much sharper on the details - along with a shot of Masterpiece Saber wearing Generation 1 Star Saber's body - it's not a perfect fit! Check out the new images attached to this post.

Transformers Song Universe and Music Matrix Cover Images

Posted on 08-28-2014 at 04:29 PM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
27463852d1409244576-new-japanese-transformers-dvd-cd-preorder-amazon-jp-8123wftgo6l_sl1500_ Amazon Japan have updated with cover images for the upcoming Transformers 30th anniversary special edition CD music collection Transformers Song Masterpiece and the DVD collection of all the show's many intros, Transformers Music Matrix.

Transformers Music Matrix is a DVD collecting clips of 55 openings and endings across the 30 year history of the franchise. Almost every opening and closing theme is represented - only "Big Bang", the first Japanese intro theme for Transformers Prime, is unrepresented. There are also some bonus additional tracks, alternate versions of the main intros to the original Generation 1 dub, Masterforce, the second intro and ending to Galaxy Force (Ignition and Growing Up, respectively) and Transformers Go. These bonus versions are almost certainly in respect of the fact that these series updated some of their opening and closing animations mid-season while keeping the same theme song. So other than Big Bang, this DVD seems to be a good representation of 30 years of Transformers cartoons. The cover features a montage of all the main Cybertron commanders from Generation 1 through to Zone.

Transformers Song Masterpiece is a similar deal, except as a four disc CD collection collecting the full-length Japanese songs for nearly every single Transformers opening and closing theme. The only absence again is "Big Bang". The cover to this one features Optimus Prime / Convoy in a stoic pose, with the rest of the label strongly inspired by the look of the Masterpiece toy packaging.

Both the CD boxed set and the DVD are due to release in Japan on September 17th - the 30th anniversary to the day of the premiere of the airing of the first Transformers cartoon.

The cover features art by Casey Coller and colors by John-Paul Bove. It's a really cool piece, check it out at left!

TFW's Age of Extinction Optimus Prime Rusty Version (Toys R Us Japan Exclusive) Gallery

Posted on 08-27-2014 at 04:51 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
RustyOptimusPrime32_3 We've got another great Transformers toy gallery to share with you tonight. Courtesy of TFW2005 photo staff member SydneyY, we have a look at the Takara-Tomy Toys R Us exclusive Age of Extinction "Rusty Version" Optimus Prime!

Based on Optimus Prime's evasion mode, used to hide from those hunting him in the new movie, this Toys R Us Japan exclusive release recolors Optimus into a cream deco with plentiful "rust" paint applications. The truck mode is extremely effective in this deco! In robot mode, Optimus features a whole lot of white and looks a bit less "grimey" than his normal truck might. There's a new headsculpt used for this version of the toy too - a full on faceplate version of the movie Optimus head is featured here, rather than the "mouth" head of the mass retail releases.

All in all, this release features an excellent take on the truck mode, but we feel the robot mode might be a bit divisive come the finish. Check out the awesome photos that SydneyY has done for us and judge for yourself!

securedownload-2_zpsab7b7235 By way of 2005 Boards member Timothy.R we have a sighting of a whole swarm of Age of Extinction Leader class Bumblebee! The leader class Bumblebee is the third Leader class toy released for the Age of Extinction line, and is a re-release of the Dark of the Moon toy, without the MechTech weapon. Definitely one for the completists, or the fans of 'bee! He was found at Costco in Montgomeryville, PA.

Age of Extinction Platinum Silver Knight Optimus Prime Released in the US

Posted on 08-27-2014 at 02:46 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
27463527d1409119838-minnesota-transformers-sightings-image We've got a new Transformers toy sighting for you today folks. TFW2005 member Jertallica reports finding the Platinum Edition Silver Knight Optimus Prime at the Plymouth Target in Minnesota.

This Silver Knight Optimus Prime is a redeco of the huge First Edition Age of Extinction Optimus Prime. As you can see from Jertallica's pic, this figure has a striking mix of silver plastic and silver chrome. While it's not for everyone, this figure seems to be very much the definitive version of the Silver Knight Optimus Prime concept that Target has been running for their exclusives this movie.
