b3 Let's continue the Transformers Collector's Club news with some more in-hand images of upcoming figures, this time from the third installment of the Transformers Subscription Service. Once again the eBay seller lena81822 has put up an auction for a loose Carzap figure. Also, TFW2005 boards member cobra zartan has linked us to even more images of both Carzap (who we see packaged in plastic bags) and Krok! We can't be absolutely sure if these are final, but if history repeats itself these are likely what fans will be receiving.

Are these going to be the first two figures released for TFSS 3.0? Stay tuned!

How close to a final figure do you believe this is? How about that head sculpt? Sound off with the discussion link below!

Transformers At UK Toy Fair 2015

Posted on 01-17-2015 at 11:43 AM by SilverOptimus under Toy Fair
Toy-Fair-2015-Transformers Q1 is the Toy Fair Season. Of course as always UK Toy Fair by British Toy & Hobby Association is opening the countless fairs including Nuremberg, Australian, China and the biggest one of them all… New York. But unlike other Toy Fairs, the UK Toy Fair is closed for the general public and is only open to interested parties such as investors and potential licensees. They are especially careful after the G. I. Joe toy leaks in 2009.

At the UK Toy Fair, Hasbro is the biggest exhibitor on the show floor. This year, the main highlight is Transformers.

Grant Gie; the European Franchise Manager of Hasbro spoke to the media recently regarding the Transformers presence at UK Toy Fair 2015. TFW2005 listens to what Mr. Gie has to say:

Speaking about the Transformers toys in general he said "It was magical and let children essentially get two toys and two play patterns in one. However, the real magic was in the detail and execution of the product."

"The iconography has become globally popular so our key characters such as Bumblebee and Optimus Prime, as well as the Autobot and Decepticon shields are instantly recognizable and translate onto products from all categories."

Since licensees are very important to the brand, Mr. Gie stated "What we try to ensure is that our licensed partners strive to activate our brand DNA in all products. 'More Than Meets The Eye' – that can work well and provide consumers with a point of difference when executed on product".

He then talked briefly about the past year."The toys over the last 30 years have changed very little… until 2014, when we completely re-designed the line. The Paramount movie showcased our characters in high-speed action sequences converting from robot to vehicle mode at the blink of an eye. Hasbro wanted to bring that same movie magic to our product line."

Next he spoke about the upcoming Transformers: Robots In Disguise and the future of the Transformers Franchise. You can read all about it, after then jump.

Botcon 2015 Comic Preview Art

Posted on 01-02-2015 at 07:48 AM by Sol Fury under Conventions
B6Tvt1iCQAEp2gh Botcon have posted some preview artwork for the Botcon 2015 set via their Twitter account. The penciled preview art for the 2015 comic shows off the world of Axiom Nexus as rendered by Matt Frank.

From the artwork, we can see a few familiar faces in the crowds, including Stampy from Beast Wars Neo, two female robots with Windblade's design - and also, a character with the vehicle mode of Generations Springer.

While many of these are background characters, it seems to imply that this year's convention figure set will use the Springer mold in some fashion, given the vehicle is a focal point in the last panel and almost certainly is the reason for the preceding two establishing shots.

Dairycon 2015 Exclusive Windbreaker Revealed

Posted on 12-28-2014 at 10:40 AM by Sol Fury under Conventions
2015windbreaker Dairycon have revealed the first of their 2015 exclusives - Windbreaker! Windbreaker is inspired by the infamously named Generation 2 character, and is realised here as a redeco of Generation 1 Windcharger. You might comment on how the deco is not that of the Generation 2 guy - that is in fact because this exclusive is an interpretation of how Windbreaker might have looked were he released in Generation 1 (because, as you might know, Generation 2 was a line that changed up a whole lot of decos).

Windbreaker is the Dairycon 2015 pre-registration exclusive - find out more about the convention and pre-register for this year's Dairycon, taking place over the weekend of March 27th and 28th, 2015 at the Retlaw Hotel in Fond du Lac, Wisconsen, at the Dairycon 2015 homepage!
