Combiner Wars Dragstrip In-Hand Images

Posted on 11-28-2014 at 05:57 AM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
15274954614_96364714d7_b Via Blacklai and Cybergeeks Alliance on Facebook, we have a look at the new Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Dragstrip in hand. The Decepticon is the first of the four members of the Stunticons to appear in the Deluxe class, and should be hitting shelves in the new year.

These images show us both modes of the Stunticon, along with a look at how the combiner accessory part can form both a hand and a foot (the foot then seems to double as a shield for the robot mode).

Check out the images and see what you think.

TFW's Generations Brainstorm In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 11-23-2014 at 03:12 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Brainstorm-Robot-50 We've got another great new Generations toy gallery to share with you. This time out, we have a gallery of a Headmaster and the Lost Light's mad scientist in residence - Brainstorm!

Generations Brainstorm does a grand job of updating the chunky original Generation 1 Brainstorm and his boxy proportions with a more modern and decidedly less boxy appearance, based on the More than Meets the Eye comic. It gives Brainstorm a very striking silhouette - this toy looks extremely good in both modes!

Brainstorm is also fun to fiddle with. As with most modern toys, he lacks waist articulation, and his wrists do not rotate, but everything else is there - including ball-jointed head articulation, which is cleverly incorporated into the Headmaster gimmick. Arcana has limited articulation when he's not being Brainstorm's noggin, with just his arms and head (!) being poseable. One word of warning - watch the blue-green paint on Arcana's legs, it seems to chip very easily.

Overall, Brainstorm looks great and is fun to play with. He's one of the most dynamic looking Voyagers to come out what has been an excellent year for the size class, capturing the spirit of the character extremely well and generally being a good, fun toy. Be a smart robin and check out the gallery to see for yourself:

Takara's Legends Brainstorm and Hasbro's Generations Brainstorm Comparison Image

Posted on 11-19-2014 at 08:42 AM by Matty under Generations / Classics
B2yyz3_CAAA0JdW A small bit of news for you to start your day with, one that may help a purchasing decision for you as well. Takara Tomy designer Hisashi Yuki tweeted a comparison picture of Takara's Legends Brainstorm and Hasbro's Generations Brainstorm. In the image provided we have a great look at the differences between the two figures, the biggest of which is Takara's added paint details on the wings, chest, and abdomen area. We'll let the picture do most of the talking, but be sure to sound off with the discussion link below and let us know which figure you're digging more!

RUMOR - Combiner Wars Titan Class Devastator Incoming?

Posted on 11-11-2014 at 11:42 PM by Mechafire under Generations / Classics
92951708-160a-456a-a6ea-90ed47657af4_zpsa838006e Rumors aplenty these days! This one should make all you combiner fans out there very happy. Following on from the recent Leader Class Ultra Magnus rumor, we now have a rumor originating from our own forums concerning a possible Combiner Wars Titan Class Devastator! This has been brought to us by two separate sources, and can be checked out in TFW's ongoing Combiner Wars speculation thread in the Toy Discussion forum.

Take this all with a grain of salt for now, but it it turns out to be legitimate, there is a chance it could be revealed around the time of one of next year's conventions. And of course, a big part of this is speculating as to the specifics of the release .

Read on for yourselves for the full details and discuss what you think after the jump!

Generations Arcee and Chromia Released in the US

Posted on 11-01-2014 at 08:28 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
27477286d1414860256-generations-arcee-released-image Good news, friends! It would appear that over the last few days Arcee and Chromia from the latest wave of Transformers Generations Deluxes have begun to arrive at US retail. They're the sole new releases in the final wave of Dark Cybertron comic pack-ins.

This report comes to you via JazzPrime74 of our 2005 Boards, who claims to have spotted them at a Target in Manteca, CA. We've also had unconfirmed reports of a sighting in a Target in San Jose, CA and in Washington state - so those of you in these areas, be sure to check your Targets!

RUMOR - Leader Class Ultra Magnus Incoming?

Posted on 10-27-2014 at 08:36 PM by Mechafire under Generations / Classics
IMG_0625_zpsd12e7e57 TFW2005 boards member DecepticusPrime has shared a very intriguing piece of information with us. While scanning through the Leader class Transformers items at the store he works at, he found the AOE Leaders, the 2 upcoming Leader Megatrons, and Leader Thundercracker. This is all, of course, old news. However, upon scanning through, he also found a listing for a new, previously-unknown item - a Leader Class Ultra Magnus.

Take this with a grain of salt for now, but if true, what exactly could it be? Might Hasbro finally be giving us a "complete" Ultra Magnus with full Magnus armor? Will it be G1-based, IDW-based, or something else? Or could it simply be another white redeco of one of the past Leader Optimus Primes?

Whatever the case, if legitimate, there is a good chance we'll be hearing more about it the closer we get to Toy Fair in February.

Feel free to speculate after the jump!

TFW's Generations Chromia In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 10-19-2014 at 04:22 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Chromia-Robot-29 For our next gallery we present the other new addition in the next Generations Deluxe class assortment, Generations Chromia!

Chromia was one of the original female Autobots, introduced in the 1985 episode "The Search for Alpha Trion" along with Firestar, Moonracer, and Elita One. She's more recently received a new, updated design as one of the three female Transformers added to the IDW comics universe alongside Windblade and Nautica. This toy represents that new, updated design - but at the same time it does a good job of homaging the original Chromia. What it means for collectors is we get another female Autobot for our shelves!

The Chromia toy is a pretty cool bit of mold reuse on Hasbro's part. The basic transformation along with the torso, shoulders, hands, and parts of the legs are recycled from the Transformers Prime mainline Arcee toy - but the rest of the toy is completely reworked to the extent that Chromia is barely recognizable from Prime Arcee, unless you stand them next to each other. Chromia keeps all the good stuff from the Arcee mold she is based on - poseability and balance are great, with only the shoulders occasionally being obstructed. Chromia is fairly light on accessories with just the one weapon, but she makes up for it by looking great and having a particularly cool alternate mode. She's worth taking a look at if you want another addition to your IDW Transformers characters shelves - check out our gallery and see for yourself.

TFW's Generations Arcee In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 10-18-2014 at 04:26 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Arcee-Robot-009 Now we have something very special to share with you. A gallery of a toy who has been 28 years in the making. After so many years since her debut, we bring you this gallery of Hasbro's Transformers Generations Arcee!

Arcee is here a faithful recreation of her original Generation 1 design, as seen in 1986's Transformers the Movie. Everything about her design is directly inspired from how Arcee looked in the original animated movie - from the high-tech pink coupe alternate mode, to the slender build of her robot mode with the front wheel arches on the shoulders.

The look of the figure is spot on. The articulation is decent, although the legs do feel a little restricted by the design of the hips. Arcee is surprisingly good at balancing, considering the small feet and the amount of bulk on her backpack. The backpack is one of the negatives of this figure - owing to the source design, Hasbro has pretty much the entire alternate mode fold up on to the back. It tucks in well, and helps to get that nice, streamlined robot mode down pat, but if you don't like this kind of transformation, Arcee won't thrill you.

Arcee comes with an arsenal of accessories - two blasters which stow in alternate mode, and holster on the hips of the robot mode. Both are based on guns Arcee had used in the run of the Generation 1 cartoons she appeared in. Arcee also has a pair of swords, jointly inspired by her Animated toy and her current comic persona. These swords can be held as normal swords, or held as "gunblades" as well as mounted on the forearms, so there's a decent number of display options for them.

All in all, this Arcee toy is the Arcee toy we've been waiting for - a nice, faithful representation of the design from the show. She's not perfect, but she fills that Arcee shaped gap in our collections perfectly. Check out our gallery for over 150 pictures of this little lady:
