Takara Legends LG-13 Megatron in Package & Possible Legends Armada Megatron

Posted on 05-20-2015 at 08:33 AM by Mechafire under Japanese Transformers
W73l2aN Everyone's favorite TakaraTomy employee, Hisashi Yuki, has just posted a few new images of Legends LG-13 Megatron - Takara's version of Hasbro Generations Leader Megatron. One shows him packaged in robot mode, but the other is perhaps somewhat more interesting, as it shows Megatron back-to-back with what appears to be a possible Takara version of the Armada Leader Megatron.

Check it out and sound off on what you think of this after the break!

Women Write about Comics Interviews MTMTE's Alex Miline

Posted on 05-20-2015 at 01:47 AM by MetalStorm under Comics
Alex-Milne-IDW Alex Milne, a fan-favorite illustrator for the IDW Transformers comics, was recently interviewed by TFW2005.COM member, Antimatter, for her blog, Women Write about Comics.

This is a very good interview, as Milne discusses his favorite tools for drawing comics, his favorite two characters to draw are a tie between Skids and Nautica, and that some of the hardest characters for him to draw are Ultra Magnus, for scale reasons, and Red Alert.

We won't spoil the whole article for you, as it's a good read.

Possible Botcon 2015 Troop Builder Set

Posted on 05-19-2015 at 03:22 PM by Jacer under Conventions
TB1Oee1HVXXXXa9XFXXXXXXXXXX_0-item_pic Over on Taobao there is an interesting auction that has popped up for 4 Generations Waspintor repaints. With Botcon around the corner most of us are assuming this is the possible troop builder set that we've seen at previous shows. The repaints appear to be Buzzsaw, Halloween Horrorcon Waspinater, and the other two still are a mystery. Botcon is only 30 days away so we will know by then!

Share your guesses about the repaints in the discussion after the jump!

X-Transbots MX-III Eligos - Masterpiece Cyclonus Renders

Posted on 05-19-2015 at 02:47 PM by Sentinel under 3rd Party Unlicensed
image X-Transbots today released new bot-mode renders of their upcoming attempt at a Masterpiece-styled Cyclonus.

This figure is slated to be the third release in their MX-line, after Apollyon (Megatron) who has recently been released to fairly positive reviews and Andreas (Scourge) who just today went up for pre-order at all the site sponsors.

For those who are looking to expand their Masterpiece collection beyond the typical Season 1 and 2 characters to include post-movie characters, this is an excellent opportunity to do just that and to add some diversity to your collection.

Check out the new pictures and decide for yourself if this figure fits into your Masterpiece collection. Did they nail the aesthetic? Is the alt mode scaled properly or are the wings too short? Is this the definitive version of Cyclonus you've always wanted? Stop by to discuss on the boards.

"In the early 1980s, a teenager named Michael Bay had a summer job at Lucasfilm, filing artwork. Two decades later he would become ILM’s most … hands-on collaborator."

Combiner Wars Leader Ultra Magnus Released at US Retail

Posted on 05-18-2015 at 05:25 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
11327197_103027500033241_147467507_n We've got several sightings of the duly appointed enforcer of the Tyrest Accord at US retail - yes, it looks like Combiner Wars Leader Ultra Magnus has arrived on store shelves. Ultra Magnus was spotted in all his IDW-inspired glory at a series of Wal-Marts in Texas, including two independent reports from the Luis Henna Walmart.

In a slightly bizarre, but not unprecedented twist, it seems that Ultra Magnus (who is Combiner Wars Leader Wave 3) has actually managed to beat Thundercracker (who is Wave 2) to store shelves. This happened a year ago with the latter Generations Legends class assortments, so while unusual, it is not completely unheard of, and there is a possibility Thundercracker is also in the wild but simply not confirmed as yet.

The stores to check are Wal-Marts, particularly if you are in the Texas area. Happy hunting, Transformers fans!

Transformers Rescue Bots Season 3 episodes 24-26 details

Posted on 05-18-2015 at 05:15 PM by Sol Fury under Rescue Bots
29906170001_4191839454001_video-still-for-video-4191780689001 Details have been posted on Zap2it of the grande finale of season 3 of Transformers Rescue Bots. It sounds like things are gearing up, big-time. Things kick off with what sounds like a first for Transformers - an episode composed mainly of characters singing in I Have Heard the Robots Singing (okay, technically, it's the second, but the less said of Carnage in C-Minor the better).

From there it is on to what sounds like a two-part season finale with season 3 episode 25 Now and Then and episode 26 Today and Forever - a truly awesome title for what sounds like the most epic of finales. Full details are spoiler-tagged below:

S3 E24 I Have Heard the Robots Singing: Tensions arise on the team after Doc's new invention causes everyone to sing instead of talk.
S3 E25 Now and Then: The Island of Griffin Rock vanishes from the ocean.
S3 E26 Today and Forever: In order to save Griffin Rock, the Rescue Bots must make the ultimate sacrifice.

No airdates are given for the episodes, but given current trends we'd expect to hear robots singing on 6 June, and the finale over the following two weeks, 13 June and 20 June. We'd not rule out the possibility of a double-bill on 13 June, though. Watch this space for more news, and watch Discovery Family Channel at 1:30pm EST every Saturday for more new episodes through into the beginning of June.

Bold Forms Motormaster In-Hand Images

Posted on 05-18-2015 at 04:06 PM by Sol Fury under 3rd Party Unlicensed
MM0 Via the Facebook account of Youtube reviewer Ben's Collectables we have an in-hand look at Bold Forms' Lone Wolf. Lone Wolf is an unoffiicial take on Generation 1 Motormaster using the full trailer look rather than the cab-only option of the Combiner Wars release. Back when it was announced it was as the first in a set of five unlicensed Stunticons, but since then Hasbro announced their Combiner Wars Stunticons and Lone Wolf was redesigned to serve as a new central torso for Menasor. These images give us a look at the figure, fully painted and in all its modes, including combined with Hasbro's Combiner Wars Stunticons as Menasor.
