Takara-Tomy Transformers Legends Jetfire Images

Posted on 12-15-2014 at 07:57 AM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
B441nHPCUAAZVeU Hisashi Yuki has shared some in-hand images of the Takara-Tomy release of the Generations Leader Jetfire on his Twitter account. This release, a part of the Japanese Transformers Legends line, lacks the shiny red chrome on the armor and boosters that the Hasbro release posesses, and also adds some very slight additional paint applications, some of which were planned for the Hasbro release but budgeted out.

Check out the images and see what you make of this new Autobot release.

In this all new episode, Kade accidentally swallows some cleaning nano-bots and it's up to the rest of the crew to go on a fantastic voyage into Kade himself to save him!

Mega Steel Blaster Color Image

Posted on 12-14-2014 at 12:58 PM by Sol Fury under 3rd Party Unlicensed
1911816_582146895218151_5663470562128950972_n Third party group Mega Steel have updated their Weibo account with a color image of their unofficial Blaster toy. Named Buster, they are saying this figure will be in the hands of reviewers (which we presume includes TFW's own Vangelus) later this month, and the final version is expected to be in production by the middle of January 2015.

27484490d1418483767-combiner-wars-out-united-kingdom-image Yes friends, it seems the UK has not only got the Combiner Wars Voyagers but also the Deluxe class limbs! TFW2005 member Bumblebee2008 reports finding the three Aerialbots in the first wave of Deluxes - Alpha Bravo, Skydive and Firefly - at a Smyths toy store in Milton Keynes! This backs up previous reports that Smyths stores were clearing space - and now we have a sighting.

Happy hunting my fellow UK fans! Here's hoping that a US sighting follows soon to share the love!

BoulderTruckTarget We have received report that the next pair of new Transformers Rescue Bots are rolling to the rescue! Boulder and Chase are now showing up at retail in their new "rescanned" alternate modes - Chase as a police SUV and Boulder as a dump truck. Notably, the Boulder features black wheels rather than green ones matching the rest of the toy, like earlier official promo images implied.

These two were spotted at a Target in Westminster, South California! Big thanks to TFW2005 member OCProwl for the heads up.

Fanstoys Scoria / Dinobot Slag Toy Version

Posted on 12-13-2014 at 10:14 AM by Sol Fury under 3rd Party Unlicensed
27484454d1418467856-fanstoys-ft-04x-ft-04t-scoria-toy-version-ft04t- Some new images have been released showing FansToys next Iron Dibot release. Revisiting their first Dinobot, the group will be doing a second version of their popular Scoria, who was based on Generation 1 Slag. This version will be based on the original toy, rather than the cartoon animation model, so will feature details such as a black red, red triceratops horns and an all-chrome gun.

There are two versions of the Scoria Toy Version coming in April 2014 - a mass retail one FT-04T, and one which is limited to 1000 pieces, FT-04X.

Our sponsor TFSource currently has both versions up for preorder:

FT-04T Scoria Toy Version
FT-04X Scoria Limited Edition Version

RUMOR - Transformers: Generations Combiner Wars Sunstreaker, Ironhide, Prowl, and Mirage Incoming?

Posted on 12-12-2014 at 06:49 PM by Mechafire under Generations / Classics
image Yet another toy rumor has just surfaced! TFW2005 boards member DecepticusPrime has once again come to us with some new info, reporting finding listings for both some previously-rumored and, more interestingly, some previously-unknown figures in Walmart's systems.

The brand new listings are for:

• Generations Deluxe Sunstreaker
• Generations Deluxe Ironhide
• Generations Deluxe Prowl
• Generations Deluxe Mirage

And as for listings we'd already heard of before, we now have even more evidence of the Protectobots (and by extension Defensor) happening:

• Protectobot Blades
• Protectobot Streetwise
• Protectobot First Aid
• Protectobot Rook

It's currently unknown to us what exactly Sunstreaker, Ironhide, Prowl, and Mirage are - fans have been speculating that Mirage could be retooled from Deluxe Drag Strip, so is it possible these are retools of the already-existing Transformers: Generations Combiner Wars Deluxe limbs; a halfways reference to the G1 episode Masquerade to further fill out the Autobot ranks?

We'll just have to wait and see - but for now, you can check it out and discuss after the jump!
