Summer Wonder Festival 2014 Coverage: Poseable Arcee and Elita-1 and Sentinel Black Zarak

Posted on 07-26-2014 at 10:23 PM by Zavien under Conventions
27456045d1406429704-fewture-arcee-elita-1-figures-1406429421917 TFW2005's coverage of Summer Wonder Festival in Japan continues, this time thanks to images from 2chan.

First off, we have images of upcoming poseable figures of Generation One Arcee and Elita-1 from Fewture Models (similiar to the Optimus Prime and Alpha Trion articulated figures we originally reported on during the last Wonder Festival in February.) Secondly, Sentinel (company behind toylines such as Riobot, as well as the Optimus Prime transforming pen) has revealed that they will be producing a retool of their previously revealed Gigantic Action non-transforming Zarak toy into Black Zarak from Transformers: Masterforce! This non-transforming collector's piece is perfect for those who are very wary of the original Black Zarak's infamous Gold Plastic Syndrome. Unless you want a Transforming Black Zarak, that is.

Stay tuned to TFW2005 as we bring you more news from Summer Wonder Festival as it happens!

Hot Toys Optimus Prime - Megatron Version

Posted on 07-25-2014 at 05:35 PM by StayingInTheBox under San Diego Comic Con
10568922_739291372783940_914750257229070914_n The jam packed San Diego Comic Con weekend brought forth a ton of new and exciting reveals for Transformers fans. Somewhat buried among the "Combiner Wars" and new Robots In Disguise 2.0 reveals is another version of the recently revealed Hot Toys Optimus Prime. Some images have been floating around of a second version and thanks to TFW2005 boards member Cheem The Rup we've learned of the Megatron version of this Hot Toys release.

It's not certain what this figure is referencing, other than Optimus Prime simply slinging Megatron parts onto his frame, but we'll be sure to update you as we learn more information about this release.

Check it out after the jump.
