Posted on 03-24-2015 at 01:00 PM by Sol Fury under Comics
Windblade-CW-1-RI IDW has released a full preview of the first part of the Combiner Wars crossover. Windblade #1 picks up where Transformers #39 left off and takes us to the lost colony world of Caminus! The preview only has the one extra page compared to the iTunes preview from the weekend, but it's a good one! We've also got the alternate covers, a subscription variant by Livio Ramondelli and a very cute and heartwarming retailer incentive, which you can see to the left.

NJCC Sends A Shout Out To The Fans & Dealers Of Our March Event

Posted on 03-23-2015 at 07:41 PM by DESTRO under Conventions
NJCC-Walk-Around-05 I’d like to thank you all for coming out to the Spring NJCC 2015 action figure toy show. The turn out was incredible as action figure collectors ruled the day in Cherry Hill NJ! I hope everyone enjoyed meeting new people and seeing old friends. Personally I feel this is the best dealer room we have ever seen. I walked away with a lot of Marvel Legends and Marvel Universe figures, and got caught up with my G.I. Joe collection as well. The best part of the con is being among fans who enjoy Action Figures and Toys just like you.

Special thanks to our guests MARK BELLOMO, DAN KHANNA and all the positive and amazing dealers we have at New Jersey Collectors Con. Our next show is Sunday August 2nd 2015….. Hope to see you there!

Diamond Listing - Combiner Wars Slingshot and Wildrider

Posted on 03-23-2015 at 02:39 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
unwarsuperion9_1424037410 Friend of TFW D-Drive has sent us some truly awesome news! It seems like a Generations Slingshot and Wildrider - using the names Quickslinger and Brake-Neck - might be on the horizon and arriving in our collections this side of the summer!

While searching the Diamond site I found these 2 listings.

TRANSFORMERS GEN DLX QUICKSLINGER AF CS
TRANSFORMERS GEN DLX BRAKE-NECK AF CS

It would appear Brake-Neck/Wildrider and Quickslinger/Slingshot come in cases of 8 of the same figure, retail for $17.99, and have a ship date right now of May 27th 2015.


It's worth noting that Quickslinger and Brake-Neck are previously established substitutes for Slingshot and Wildrider, used for the Bot Shot and Kre-O versions of the characters in the past.

Fansproject Lost-Exo Realm Volar Delayed, Optional Blue Torso Included

Posted on 03-23-2015 at 01:08 AM by ORIO under 3rd Party Unlicensed
LER031 Fansproject has updated their Facebook page regarding the next release in their Lost Exo Realm series, Volar aka Swoop! For the last few months, it would appear that the retail version would be coming with a red colored G1 toy accurate torso while a G1 cartoon accurate, blue chest would possibly come separately as a convention exclusive as they did with Columpio and Cubrar. The good news is that Fansproject has listened to the feedback and have decided to include an optional blue torso in with the retail release, so fans can choose to display Volar with their own personal preference. The bad news however, is that including this optional torso has delayed the figure until mid-April.

STAFF EDIT: For even more impressive customer service, FansProject announced that Volar will also include replacement hips for your Columpio figure to address the complaint of loose hips.

Keep checking back for more updates, and join in the discussion in the third party forum.

Iron Factory Limited Edition EX03 SonicTech - Twincast Version

Posted on 03-23-2015 at 12:54 AM by ORIO under 3rd Party Unlicensed
IFTW1 Courtesy of the Weibo page of Toyszone, we have a look at a potential upcoming limited edition release of Iron Factory's Sonic-Tech Figure. This possible exclusive is a repaint of their recently released, Legends-scaled Blaster figure, except in Twincast colors. The design of this figure pulls it's influence from IDW's Spotlight Blaster comic. No, mention where or if this set will be exclusive or just how limited it may be, but keep checking back for more updates.

In the meantime, follow along with this announcement in the ongoing discussion thread in our 3rd Party Discussion forum.

STAFF UPDATE: Preorders are now up on BigBadToyStore, TFSource and Robot Kingdom

NJCC-SD-METRO-01 Master Made's 002 Titan was shown off at the Lunar Toy Store booth during NJCC today. The SD version of not-Metroplex was a little more refined from last time, but still in the test shot phase. He had a heft to him with diecast and a sturdy plastic frame. Check out some in-person shots from the show after the break!

TFW's Combiner Wars Offroad In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 03-22-2015 at 03:04 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Offroad-Robot-30 It's time for some more in-hand galleries of the Combiner Wars toys, and with the recent announcement of a Menasor set for Japan, now seemed like a great time to take a look at the Stunticon Japan is not getting - Offroad!

Like Alpha Bravo, Offroad is a newcomer to the established combiner team, and his bio even pays tribute to that fact. He's visually got Wildrider's deco in truck mode, but in robot mode he has a nice shade of turquoise to break up the grey, which works great for him. Offroad also shares a bunch of cues with Generation 1 Crankcase, which some fans have picked up on, particularly in his robot mode.

As a toy, Offroad is good. He's got a full range of movement other than ankles in his legs, including a waist swivel. The arms feature a similar range of movement, but the sides of the truck on his shoulders can catch on the front of the truck on his back - but not as much as you might think, they actually have a very good range of movement. What I particularly love is that the head is on a balljoint, and has enough movement to be posed looking up or down, or even cocked sideways, which together with the wonderful personality captured in the headsculpt really gives Offroad a lot of character.

As you might have guessed, I really like this one, not only as a member of the Stunticons, but as an individual toy in his own right. Even if he gets displaced from my Menasor by an eventual Wildrider, I'm still planning to keep Offroad in my collection display for his own sake. Check out the gallery and see for yourself:

FansProject Sixknight and G1 Colors Chromedome

Posted on 03-22-2015 at 11:58 AM by Sol Fury under 3rd Party Unlicensed
11043396_623035001129340_2834850570768346924_o Via Mr Elljay on Weibo we have a look at two more upcoming unofficial transforming robots from FansProject. First up is a redeco of their MADLAW to resemble the Masterforce character Sixknight - a logical reuse of the mold and given the rarity and price of the original, one that is sure to please fans.

The second is a reissue of their unofficial Headmaster Chromedome, Code, in colors more closely inspired by the Generation 1 Chromedome.

For both releases not a lot is known beyond "these are probably happening". It's possible they may be some kind of online exclusives - all will be revealed in time.
