New Official Images Of Platinum Edition Silver Knight Optimus Prime

Posted on 07-16-2014 at 11:10 PM by Shin Densetsu under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
27453636d1405567182-new-images-platinium-edition-silver-knight-optimus-prime-image Megatronus 209 has spotted new, official images of Platinum Edition Silver Knight Optimus Prime on Facebook and has shared them here. The content has become unavailable so we are not entirely sure who the source is.

Unlike previous stock images of this Platinum Silver Optimus, these new images show chrome and metallic silver paint. The images also have Hasbro's typical "digitally airbrushed to hell" look so we aren't entirely sure if this is indicative of the final product(with regards to chrome and metallic silver paint). If you've seen the 1st edition Optimus, think of the chrome from that, carried over to this but with red flames on the chest.

Read on to check out the images.

Transformers: Age of Extinction Toyline Underperforming?

Posted on 07-16-2014 at 03:40 PM by Mechafire under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
4039720150569047F52BE572DD872B3E_1397322518 As had been reported a short while back, it seemed that the Transformers: Age of Extinction toyline was off to a somewhat rocky start. And now, we have even more evidence to back that up. Disney Pixar Cars website TakeFiveADay has posted an interesting article examining the current state of movie toylines and toylines in general, of course focusing a lot on the current AOE line. Unfortunately, despite the movie itself performing well, it seems the toyline isn't, and it doesn't sound like the outlook is positive either. From the article:

"The #1 licensed toy line in America usually generates about $400-$500 million in sales a year. [...] At the rate the toys are selling, Transformers might still crack $225 million which is a lot but when you create inventory to sell $500 million dollars worth of toys? Thatís not so good"

It should be noted that this isn't just related to Transformers; toyline sales in general have been on the decline for a while now. This could potentially be bad news for not just Transformers fans, but fans of toys in general. The reasons for the decline in sales are numerous, and you can read them and discuss after the jump.

Rumor - new Age of Extinction Platinum Series Exclusives

Posted on 07-15-2014 at 02:48 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
black_knight Take this as a rumor for now. TFW2005 member Catz, who has never steered us wrong yet, has shared with us some listings for upcoming Platinum Edition releases in the Age of Extinction toyline. While some of the listings (like Autobots United) we've heard of before there are two new ones:
  • A First Edition Leader Optimus Prime with trailer, who comes with Stinger. Previously revealed in the Toys R Us computers, but this is the first we have heard of the mold choices... and Stinger.
  • A five pack of Dinobots in black and gray decos

Perhaps we shall learn more about these at the San Diego Comic Con?

(Pictured, Takara-Tomy's Black Knight Grimlock. Could the Dinobots five pack have a similar deco?)

Update: Retailer etoysjapan.com has posted 2 images with silhouettes of figures for these listings.

The Prime with Trailer & Stinger set seems to have a bot that looks like Movie Sideswipe (blade arms), so it's possible the Stinger is a reapaint of that rather than a new mold.

There is also an image of the Dinobots set, showing an unmistakable Slog (Sludge).

Both are listed for an October release.

Age of Extinction Legends Two Packs Released in Singapore

Posted on 07-14-2014 at 02:06 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
IMG_2753_zpsc8ff8d6a We have a report from TFW2005 member CybertronStreak that the Age of Extinction Legends two packs are showing up at Singapore retail. These packs feature a Legion or Legends class toy from past movie lines or Transformers Prime's Cyberverse packaged with a larger toy. The packs include pairings such as Revenge of the Fallen Legends Optimus Prime with a redecoed Energon Cruellock as Grimlock and a Revenge of the Fallen Legends Sideways recolor as Stinger with a purple Beast Wars Neo Guiledart as Slug.

Hopefully this sighting in Singapore means these are not fair off a US release. A big thanks once again to CybertronStreak for the heads up.
