30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 2013

Posted on 05-07-2014 at 12:00 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Prime
2013 2013 brought a year of endings and beginnings to the Transformers brand – not only was it the year that Transformers Prime ended, but it was also the year that saw several key members of the Transformers brand team, many of whom had worked on the brand since Transformers Armada or earlier, part ways with Hasbro – but not before unleashing the single biggest Transformer toy ever built. On the front of new beginnings, buzz and hype began to build for Transformers 4, and the Transformers Generations line transitioned to a new “comic pack in” style, bundling IDW’s Transformers comics with the Deluxe class toys.

30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 2012

Posted on 05-06-2014 at 12:00 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Prime
2012 In 2012 the Transformers Prime toyline made its debut almost a year after the show first arrived on screens, with Japan also getting a toyline all of its own complete with several Japan-only releases. Transformers Prime entered its second season on the Hub, and a new Transformers show for younger audiences based on the Rescue Bots toys also launched. The Transformers returned to video game consoles with the Fall of Cybertron, with a line of Generations toys released to coincide with it. IDW relaunched its comics as well, with John Barber and James Roberts helming new ongoing series Robots in Disguise and More than Meets the Eye, while Simon Furman returned to the classic Generation 1 comics continuity that began with The Transformers #1 in 1984 in the form of the Regeneration 1 comic series.

Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters Deluxe Windrazor Variant?

Posted on 05-01-2014 at 09:59 AM by StayingInTheBox under Transformers Prime
27435551d1398896823-beast-hunters-deluxe-windrazor-variant-deluxewindrazorvariant As the Transformers Beast Hunters line continues to release its remaining figures, we've received word of a possible variant figure of the Deluxe Class Windrazor (part of the "upscaled Legions").

The Windrazor purchased uses gray instead of yellow plastic for the torso and overall color pallet has more green and grey plastic for the body. TFW member Avaran has provided some in-hand pictures of the figure along with an image of the packaging that has been unchanged showing the originally released Windrazor.

Will you try tracking this variant down to finish off your Prime collection? Check out the images and sound off after the jump.

Gacha Tomy Transformers Battle Disk Shooters

Posted on 04-10-2014 at 06:37 AM by Sol Fury under Transformers Prime
Battle_Disk_Shooters2 An interesting discovery comes to us from Kaufland supermarkets in Germany, who do not usually stock Transformers product. They are carrying a series of "Battle Disk Shooters" from Tomy's subsidiary Gacha. The disk shooters seem like something you'd find on the cover of the UK Transformers comic by Titan Magazines, and each one comes with a target, a disk shooter and a pair of disks. They're available in eight different styles, and while their packaging is done in the new 2014 standard style, the artwork used is as far as we can see from the Transformers Prime series.

Transformers Prime Bumblebee & Optimus Prime Coin Banks And Mashem Figures

Posted on 03-20-2014 at 09:53 AM by StayingInTheBox under Transformers Prime
27425487d1395062317-transformers-prime-bumblebee-optimus-prime-coin-bank-mash-ems-kinder-ferrero-egg Thanks to a recent Target shopping trip by TFW2005 boards member TFPrime, we've spotted a few Transformers merchandise oddities that may be fun to add to your collection.

First up are two coin banks of Transformers Prime characters Bumblebee and Optimus Prime. They are hand painted ceramic and are priced at $12.99 each.

Also found were Transformers Prime "Mashem" figures, which are advertised as "super squishy" and are meant to be flung around like a sling shot. The pack found includes Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Ratchet, Bulkhead, Soundwave, and Megatron.

TFPrime was also nice enough to share in-hand images of a separate haul of his recently acquired Universal Studios figures of Generation 1 Megatron, Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. Also shared were in-hand images of the Kinder and Ferrero eggs which come with Transformers Prime characters that can be built.

Transformers: Prime Sequel Show Update

Posted on 03-18-2014 at 02:21 PM by Mechafire under Transformers Prime
Transformers-Hub-Bumblebee-1920-1_1395084346 Following on from yesterday's reveal of the next Transformers cartoon's Bumblebee, TFW2005 member Rogzilla has tipped us off about a post made by one of the storyboard artists, Matthew Humphreys, who was a member of Transformers: Prime's creative team and is also working on the new show. In it, he clarifies that the image we saw is not necessarily indicative of how the final product will look:

"I can’t say much because you know the reasons. But I just feel the need to say that with our new show being announced the artwork shown on various sites is NOT a good representation of what the designs look like fully fleshed out. The new show looks amazing and I’m having a ton of fun working on it and I hope everyone watches when it comes out."

So, what do you think about this revelation? Share your thoughts on the boards after the jump!
