Transformers Hero Mashers Released in Australia

Posted on 06-02-2014 at 05:03 PM by Sol Fury under Other News
14033208337_168e131d5f_b The Transformers Hero Mashers figures have made their retail debut in Perth, Australia. Ozformers member Omega Metro spotted them on shelves in Australian chain Toy World - they retail at AUS $19.99, with Bumblebee and Starscream among those spotted. The series allows you to mix and match the body parts of not only the Transformers Hero Mashers, but also the other series like the Marvel Hero Mashers - so a Doctor Doom / Starscream hybrid is now within the realms of possibility if you so choose! Hopefully this Australian retail sighting means a US sighting is equally not too far off.

New Trademark Reveals A Possible New Future For The Transformers Toys - ALLSPARK

Posted on 05-14-2014 at 04:25 PM by SilverOptimus under Other News
39871d1392482220-hasbro-partnering-3d-systems-3d-play-products-their-brands-3d_potato During this year's Toy Fair, Hasbro and 3D Systems announced a co-venture; a 3D Printing technology for the children.

It so happens that fellow fansite Transformers At The Moon has stumbled upon a rather interesting Trademark. Titled as ALLSPARK, this trademark is filed by Hasbro under the following description:

"Computer software for creating, designing, modifying, customizing, sharing and saving computer generated representations capable of being printed by a three dimensional printer to create physical objects, namely, jewelry, ornaments, arts objects, artifacts, household goods, toys, games, hobby models, accessories, office products, and various other consumer products "

You can check out the listing at the United States Patent And Trademark Office.

This new venture could turn out to be a way for a Build Your Own Transformer line. Only time will tell.

Posted on 05-12-2014 at 02:12 AM by Sol Fury under Other News

The assortment contains an Optimus Prime and a Grimlock alongside Bumblebee - each one stands roughly 3 inches tall.

We should probably be seeing these at US retail soon, within the next six weeks or so if past trends are correct if not a bit earlier.

Transformers Hero Mashers In Package Images

Posted on 04-27-2014 at 09:44 AM by Sol Fury under Other News
1398508976_10296565_10152358137027726_1606662451847825088_n Via Transformers Colombia we have a look at the Transformers Hero Mashers in package. Of interest is that the DX Optimus Prime and Bulkhead sets which come with more parts than the average Hero Masher specify that the additional parts they come with come from Ultra Magnus and Cliffjumper - a hint at things to come? Or merely a coincidence?

Transformers Animated Costumes For Women Advertised as Lingerie?

Posted on 04-25-2014 at 01:20 AM by ORIO under Other News
lingerie Well then... now for some unusual Transformer news.

We here at TFW would like to bring to your attention some new costumes, marketed as "lingerie", which were advertised earlier today on the Facebook page of Leg Avenue. What TFW2005 member, AoE, was doing on this particular website is none of our business. However, the costumes in question appear to be adult women costumes based off of the Animated versions of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Megatron. Because all three of those characters are dead sexy when you think about them.

Maybe this is your thing. Maybe these are GREAT costumes for Halloween. Either way, they exist and are therefore amazing! You can check out the image for them by clicking on the title bar!

Hasbro Applies For A New Trademark - Transformers: Robots In Disguise

Posted on 03-09-2014 at 11:57 AM by SilverOptimus under Other News
Hasbro-Transformers-Robots-In-Disguise-Trademark-TV-Series-Video-Game-Toy-Line We at TFW2005 are constantly on the hunt for exciting news from the Transformers Franchise. Today, thanks to United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO for short) we found out that Hasbro has applied for a new trademark last week.

The new trademark is titled "Transformers: Robots In Disguise" and is categorized under
  • Video Game
  • Toyline and Merchandise

The new trademark is categorized under two categories (video game and merchandise) with both of them stating "featuring an animated cartoon series".

Right now, we are in the dark as you are. But, the best thing about Hasbro filing a new trademark is that we will see it in real life in the future… though unable to tell when (Mind you, Airachnid trademark was filed years before we actually saw her on the show).

Update: We have also learned that Hasbro has applied for this new trademark while the old trademark for RID (cartoon, toyline etc) is still live and active.

Stick with TFW2005 as we bring you the best news… first.
