Posted on 10-15-2014 at 08:37 AM by StayingInTheBox under Other News
625x465_1196208_1163688_1413337652 Earlier this year we reported of a collaboration between Hasbro and Shapeways to sell 3D printed artwork based on fan submitted designs. The SuperFanArt project is to start out with approved designs for My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic and then expand into other brands including Transformers. Thanks to TFW2005 board member Trentulas we now know that approval emails are being sent out to the fan designers for approved projects, which include Transformers!

We were also provided a list of which projects were approved for sale, which gives us a clearer indication of what to expect to be available for purchase after the new year (image linked of actual Trentulas project). Also included are the official guidelines for submitting projects if you are interested in contributing.

Make the jump for more details and discuss this partnership with the discussion link below.

Transformers Ultimate All Stars Mobile Game Promo Video

Posted on 10-14-2014 at 12:03 PM by Sol Fury under Video Games
Takara-Tomy have uploaded a promotional video for the Hero Z produced Japanese market only Transformers Ultimate All Stars Mobile Game. The promo video gives a short demonstration of the way the game works - which seems to consist of picking your team of warriors to pit against an enemy team. There seems to be a story mode, if the way that character artwork flashes up accompanied by text is any indication.

It seems to be a cute and inoffensive little mobile game - one geared around the person on the move needing a quick burst of robots in disguise action. The promo shows that the whole of the Japanese Generation 1 continuity from the original US show through Masterforce and Victory are in, along with Beast Wars (which in Japan was divided into two 26 episode shows, Beast Wars and Beast Wars Metals)
