Platinum Edition Optimus Prime & Sideswipe In-Hand

Posted on 08-22-2014 at 11:19 AM by Mechafire under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
c098 TFW2005 boards member griffin-of-oz is here to bring us an in-hand look at the Transformers: Age of Extinction Platinum Edition Optimus Prime & Sideswipe set. He offers us a gallery of the figures, showing them off with some comparisons, as well as a writeup detailing the set.

If you thought the original First Edition Optimus Prime figure had a lot of chrome, think again, because this version has even more of it, along with an alternate faceplated head sculpt. Also coming in the set is a recolor of the trailer from MP-10, as well as a Sideswipe who is quite similar to the ROTF Swerve figure.

Check out TFW's selection of images, then griffin's gallery after the jump as well as the full gallery at Ozformers!

A Glimpse Inside Ex Kenner/Hasbro Employee's Toy Collection

Posted on 08-21-2014 at 09:07 AM by StayingInTheBox under Other News
It's not very often Transformers fans get to witness toy history, such as something as epic as a nearly $27,000 G2 Menasor auction. Needless to say when prototypes, unreleased items, and test shots are shown, Transformers fans can be mesmerized by what we see. TFW thought it would be cool to share a small piece of that with two videos provided by z75sales, the seller who has been listing several unreleased items including the infamous G2 Menasor.

In the two videos we get a glimpse of the sheer size of an ex Kenner/Hasbro employee who is selling off the collection of untouched and rarely seen items. Literally hundreds of boxes with toys from the late 80's and 1990's need to be organized and categorized, some of which still hold surprises!

Check out the videos below for a fun piece of the rarely seen side of our hobby.

This time around we have new colored images from Mr. Elljay on Weibo of FansProject homages to Sixknight and Quickswitch. These two characters are from the latter portions of Generation 1, Sixknight being a part of Super-God Masterforce cartoon while Quickswitch had appearances in both the Marvel UK comics and season 5 of the original Generation 1 cartoon. No preorder information has been shared as of yet.

Did FansProject surprise you with these? Let us know in the discussion link below!

Posted on 08-20-2014 at 12:19 PM by Mechafire under Comics
TF_MTMTE_32_cvrA_1400688726 TFW2005 boards member D-Drive is here once again bringing us the Diamond Comics shipping list for next Wednesday, August 27th. After a long and excruciating wait, the next issue of Transformers: More than Meets the Eye is finally upon us, and promises to bring the tears. Also coming to us is Transformers vs. G.I. Joe #2, and a figure of a certain freelance peacekeeping agent.

Read on for the full details, and discuss after the jump!

TRANSFORMERS MORE THAN MEETS EYE #32 (also shipping 1-in-10 and subscription variants)

(W) James Roberts (A/CA) Alex Milne
SLAUGHTERHOUSE! The crew of the Lost Light are used to past decisions coming back to bite them, but nothing-not even an ULTRA MAGNUS-certified crash course in the law of unintended consequences-could have prepared them for the horrors of Sector 113. Be warned: this issue is not for the easily distressed-or the easily heartbroken.

TRANSFORMERS VS GI JOE #2 (also shipping 1-in-10 and subscription variants)

(W) Tom Scioli, John Barber (A/CA) Tom Scioli
BOOTS ON THE GROUND! The war has begun-and no bars will be held! SCARLETT's forces go head-to-head with MEGATRON's hordes-and the most off-beat adventure in comic book history hits a new level of dangerous alliances, deadly invasions, and devastating betrayals!


Marvel Comics' Avengers are ready for action with Hasbro's new 3 3/4" Avengers Infinite Series Action Figures! These figures feature extensive articulation and detailing, and they come with accessories ready for battle! Figures include Platinum Hulk, Platinum Wonder Man, Death's Head, Rocket Raccoon and Groot, Drax, and Star-Lord. Blister card packaging.
