TFW2005 January 2014 Creative Spotlight: We're Back, Baby!

Posted on 02-04-2014 at 09:30 AM by Secretcode under Site Updates
tf_cybertronians_captain_optimus__final_render_by_kishiaku-d71rdeb It's been a while, hasn't it? With the new year, a new project has begun here on TFW2005 and that project is to bring back our Creative Spotlight features (which focus on the highlights of the various creative subforums here on TFW) for you dear readers. Things are a little different than before, as rather than feature a single TFW2005 member and interview them, we'll be sharing the love a lot more often than before. There are two big rules though: Only customs we select that are COMPLETED in the month of the Spotlight are included (WIPs will still be up for inclusion in the month they are finished) and we'll be limiting the spotlights to one creation per user, per month (unless the multiple customs are very clearly part of a set.) With the rules out of the way, let's move on to the customs!Oh, but it's not just the customs that will get all the love in the new and improved Creative Spotlights! Not if the talented users over in the Fan-Art section have anything to say about that!Last but not least, we also have a pair of tutorials to share with you: Fata shows us how to de-camouflage a Masterpiece Acid Storm, and eriku shows us just how much a tiny oversight can be corrected as he adds wrist articulation to Ultimate Beast Hunters Optimus Prime.

Like the return of the Creative Spotlights? Sound off in the discussion thread! We'll be back after the month of Feburary with the next Spotlight and overall just thanks for sticking with TFW2005 through the New Year! Don't forget: Keep an eye out on the entire TFW2005 Network as we bring you our 2014 New York Toy Fair coverage in a few weeks, as well as the latest updates, news and rumors for Transformers: Age of Extinction and more!

TFW's Staff Top 3rd Party Toy Picks of 2013

Posted on 01-05-2014 at 08:00 AM by optimusfan under Site Updates
quakewave In what will surely become a new tradition at TFW2005, our staff compiled a list of their top 3rd party items for 2013. The previous year featured continued proliferation of both 3rd party companies and releases, with many stepping up their game in a bid to win the hearts of fans. The TFW2005 staff attempted to separate the wheat from the chaff, with high marks being awarded to multiple combiner teams, a certain "heady" sub-line, as well as our first "Masterpiece" 3rd party figure.

Follow the link below for the full list of 3rd party staff picks for 2013. Agree? Disagree? Sound off in the thread and let us know!

TFW's Staff Top Toy Picks of 2013

Posted on 01-04-2014 at 09:03 AM by optimusfan under Site Updates
61WDj7PbN9L_AA1100__1362868517_thumb As is tradition, we pause with the passing of another year to reflect on the top Transformers of 2013. By all accounts 2013 was an up year for collectors compared to 2012. As evidence of this, the more collector-oriented Generations and Masterpiece lines dominated our staff lists in 2013, as well as releases from fan-favorite series "Beast Wars". 2013 also saw the remarkable release of not one but two city-formers in Generations Metroplex and Encore Fortress Maximus.

So, which figures did the TFW staff rank as tops in 2013? Is your favorite release represented? Read on to find out more and sound off in the thread to let your opinion be known!

Happy New Year 2014 from TFW2005!

Posted on 01-01-2014 at 09:38 AM by Sol Fury under Site Updates
Machkick14_1233791166 All of us here at Transformers World 2005 would like to wish you a happy, prosperous and healthy new year!

2014 has arrived, and with it, the 30th year of the Transformers franchise! Transformers will turn 30 on May 8 2014, which is the 30th anniversary of the publication of the first Transformers comic book from Marvel comics, and September 17 2014 will see the 30th anniversary of the classic Generation 1 cartoon series and our ears being graced with the voices of Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, the late Chris Latta, Corey Burton and so many others bringing our favorite Robots in Disguise to life.

Looking ahead to 2014, we have a lot to look forward to. In comics, we have two big events coming with the conclusion of the Dark Cybertron crossover event in IDW's Robots in Disguise and More than Meets the Eye books, with the promise of two new series later in the year, Windblade and a new Transformers / G.I. Joe crossover. 2014 is also going to see the conclusion to the comic series that started it all, with Transformers Regeneration 1 #100 due to arrive in March.

Of course no look to what is to come would be complete without making mention of a new Transformers live action movie, coming at the end of June! Michael Bay is bringing Optimus Prime and Bumblebee back to the big screen in Transformers Age of Extinction! A new story with a new cast, we can look forward to a new big screen adventure starring Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor and Nicola Peltz alongside our favorite robots in disguise.

All this and of course, new Transformers toys! In 2014 Hasbro is bringing us more of their new Constructabots series with Beast Hunters themed sets coming up soon, plus the new, simpler Beast Hunters toys. For us collectors, we can look forward to new Masterpiece Transformers including Masterpiece Wheeljack and the rumored Masterpiece Bumblebee and Masterpiece Ultra Magnus from Takara-Tomy, and from Hasbro, a 30th anniversary Transformers Generations lineup which includes not only homages to the original Transformers, but updates to characters from across Transformers' rich history including Beast Wars and Beast Machines. A lot has been rumored, so watch this space next month for all the cool new toys being revealed at the US Toy Fair 2014.


That's all from us for now. Have a safe and happy 2014, and join us in celebrating the 30th anniversary year of the Transformers!
