Robots in Disguise Warrior Wave 1 Released in the UK

Posted on 12-10-2014 at 06:09 PM by Sol Fury under Robots In Disguise (201x)
15372892713_18c5c971ce First Ireland, and now the UK! The new Deluxe class analog for the new Transformers show, Robots in Disguise, has hit UK retail. As before, these guys are in Smyths toy stores - this time in Longton, Staffordshire. Smyths seem to be the chain to check out if you want a Bumblebee, Strongarm, Grimlock or Steeljaw to add to your collection. They're priced at £14.99, so are roughly the same cost as a Generations Deluxe in UK money.

A big thanks to TFW2005 member Payres for the news tip!

Robots In Disguise (2015) Tiny Titans Toy Line and Possible New Character Revealed

Posted on 12-09-2014 at 08:27 PM by Matty under Robots In Disguise (201x)
HAS24162 Thanks to site sponsor BigBadToyStore, we may have just learned of a new character reveal for the Robots In Disguise (2015) cartoon and toy line. Potential spoilers ahead if you're trying to avoid character reveals ...

In the first series case listing of the Tiny Titans figures, there is a character card with the Thunder-Hoof name attached to it. The image of the figure is still a little too small to make out the alternate mode, but the character is definitely a Decepticon and likely some type of beast-former, probably the deer based design going on those antlers. The sharp eyed might also notice some Generation 1 creeping in with Cliffjumper and Prowl (though the figure with Prowl's card looks more like Bluestreak).

This new toy line are small figurines, non-transformable, and can be purchased from BBTS via the case or by single blind bags. Check them out after the jump!

Jagex Transformers Universe Concepts by Jay Howse including Scrounge and Warpath

Posted on 12-08-2014 at 05:53 PM by Sol Fury under Video Games
Warpath_front Concept artist Jay Howse has shared some work which he did for Jagex on their Transformers Universe MOTA game. The artwork he has shared consists of a bevy of CGI pieces, covering a range of characters, from mainstays of the franchise like Ratchet, Prowl and Wheeljack, to additions from the lore of Transformers like Warpath, Chromia and Scrounge (complete with what looks like a special arm). The artwork is rounded out with some completely original designs, such as Break-Neck and Vectorium, plus some vehicle mode designs including a vehicle mode for the Autotrooper.

The artwork is fantastic, and some of the pieces such as Warpath show the textures and the progress of the piece, meaning it is also a good lesson in how a piece like this is developed. Be sure to check it out!
