Super Fire Convoy 2014 Reissue
Posted by News Fetcher on August 05 '13 at 09:15 PM
By Shin Densetsu from TFW2005:
A very interesting pre-order has been posted at BigBadToyStore, a pre-order for none other than Super Fire Convoy from the fan-favorite series, Car Robots AKA Robots In Disguise! This was last the mainline prior to the Armada trilogy and it left big shoes to fill. It also introduced once of the most popular and unique versions of Convoy/Optimus Prime.

For those of you who missed out, the pre-order page can be accessed here. Price is $149.99. BBTS has stated that the Toys R Us exclusive Master Sword is rumored to be included. That may factor into the higher price, but we aren't completely sure. Since the sword is rumored to be included and was used for the God Fire Convoy combined mode with God Magnus...perhaps the latter isn't too far behind? Stay tuned as we'll keep you posted!

Platinum Edition Year of the Horse Optimus Prime
Posted by News Fetcher on August 05 '13 at 12:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Toys R Us Canada also revealed a second Platinum Edition Chinese New Year Transformer. The second Year of the Horse Transformer is a Year of the Horse Optimus Prime. The page on Toys R Us Canada was here, but has since started redirecting to the site's index. However, 2005 Boards member mapatel got a copy of the product description, which reads as follows:

The leader of the Autobots is back and more unstoppable than ever! Everyone will know that this mighty Year of the Horse Optimus Prime figure is the ultimate Autobot, because the Matrix of Leadership fits in his chest. He'll shred his Decepticon enemies with his Energon axe in robot mode, and flatten them in truck mode! Convert his trailer to a battle station with a maintenance dock, where you can store his ion cannon and Energon axe. Your Transformers adventures will be off the hook with this Optimus Prime figure!

What this suggests about this Optimus Prime is that:

He has a Matrix that fits in his chest.

He has the Energon Axe and an Ion Cannon

He comes with a trailer which turns into a battle station and maintenance dock, and the trailer can also store the weapons.

With these facts in mind, there are very few existing Optimus Prime toys that fit this bill - leaving by process of elimination the most likely potential candidate for this release as a special Chinese New Year edition Masterpiece Optimus Prime 2.0.

As before no pictures are available, so this is speculation on our part, however once more news becomes available we shall share it with you here.

Platinum Edition Year of the Horse Starscream
Posted by News Fetcher on August 05 '13 at 11:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Toys R Us Canada has posted a pair of interesting preorder pages, revealing a pair of new Chinese New Year Platinum Edition releases. These "Year of the Horse" releases seem to be in the same vein as past Year of the Dragon and Year of the Snake special editions, if the descriptions are anything to go by.

The first of the two is, according to Toys R Us Canada, "TRA SUPREME STARSCREAM CNY PLATINUM". There's no product pictures or description, but the additional information suggests that two AA batteries are needed. An informed opinion suggests this might be, in the same vein as the Year of the Snake Omega Supreme, a Chinese New Year re-release of the Transformers Cybertron Supreme Starscream. He's priced just shy of $120 Canadian, and scheduled for a release on the last day of this year, 31 December 2013.

Stay tuned for more news on this and all other things Transformers.

Transformers 4 Mark Wahlberg and Stanley Tucci On Set Video
Posted by News Fetcher on August 04 '13 at 02:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Another day of Transformers 4 filming on location in Detroit brings us some more on set videos. This first new video by Youtuber Radioactive77 shows Mark Wahlberg and Stanley Tucci walking through the ruins set, and Tucci confronting someone - given the presence of a pole as a visual aid, we're assuming a Transformer.



This second video by pioter36 shows some car-based stuntwork - you can see the scene shown at left being filmed, involving a subway car being dropped and lots of extras running and screaming.

Transformers 4 Possible Gunship Prop on Location in Plymouth, Michigan
Posted by News Fetcher on August 03 '13 at 12:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The Transformers Live Action Movie Blog has posted an image of what is assumed to be a prop for Transformers 4, which has been spotted on location in Plymouth, Michigan. The prop seems to be a part of a gunship or other weapon system - potentially like the ones the Decepticons used to attack Chicago in Transformers Dark of the Moon.

In related news, filming continues in Detroit, with more on set videos being posted on Youtube as filming progresses. A couple of interesting ones showing some of the pyrotechnics have been posted on Youtube by Arthur Zaripov - check them out embedded below:

TFW's Botcon 2013 Kreon Exclusive Five Pack Galleries Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on August 02 '13 at 03:46 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We're wrapping up our Botcon 2013 Exclusive Toy Galleries! Tonight we bring things full circle with a look at another set exclusive to Botcon 2013 which also featured a Strika, an Obsidian and a Megaplex. The difference? These ones are Kreons! Here for your enjoyment now are our galleries of the first ever Kreon exclusive to be offered at Botcon - and long may they continue!

The Botcon 2013 Kreon exclusive set of five figures was based on the Botcon 2013 convention boxed set - so where the boxed set has Machine Wars Megaplex and Hoist, so too this set does a Kreon Megaplex and Hoist. This becomes very cool with the addition of Kreons of Strika and Obsidian, who are basically the first-ever Beast Machines Kreons to get released on this token. None of the Kreons in the set are Micro Changers (Strika can be fanmoded into a tank, though). All in all, these are a fun set, and one that is a great addition for Kreon fans.

Open up the links below to check out our galleries of the Botcon 2013 Kreons!

If your card details have changed, or your mailing details have changed, you will need to log in to the Subscription Service to update your details - but if your Transformers Collectors Club membership has lapsed, you will not be able to do this and the Club has asked that people email them to update their details.

We here at TFW2005 should point out you should only email the Collector's Club if you have had a change of address - if you need to change your card details, be sure to phone the Club right away; do not send your credit card details by email. We'll say that once more for emphasis, never send your credit card details by email.

(In fairness, the update does say to not send all your details in one email, but even divided it is not safe to send your payment details through a non-secure medium like email)

Check out the full text of the email update after the break. The email also mentions that due to processing the installments, the third figure in the Subscription Service set will not ship until the last week of the month.

First Transformers 4 Robot Face Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on August 02 '13 at 11:45 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
When filming scenes where CGI Characters are involved, movie makers often use a prop so that actors can focus where they should look at. For the Transformers Live Action Movie Franchise, these are usually Robot face on a long stick; most commonly known by Transformers Fans as "Pole Faces".

For Transformers: Dark of the Moon we saw the Wreckers, Mirage/Dino, Wheeljack/Que, Megatron, Soundwave and Shockwave.

Now it's time to introduce our first Pole Face for Transformers 4. Thanks to Hot Fudge Detroit, we meet out first new Transformers 4 Robot. This Cybertronian seems to be a very old character with a long beard and unmistakably smoking a Pipe or a Cigar.

We have no idea who this might be. This newsie took the liberty of enlarging the image for your viewing pleasure. You are free to discuss a good name to this mysterious new bot, on the thread associated with this news post.

Posted by News Fetcher on August 01 '13 at 10:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Comic Addictz has posted a sneak preview of the Livio Ramondelli alternate covers for the upcoming Transformers Robots in Disguise 20, 21 and 22 from IDW. Each of these issues features artwork of the major players in these issues (Starscream, Shockwave and Soundwave) drawn in Livio's signature style, and the three covers connect to make a nice poster-sized piece of artwork. Check out the full combined image that is formed by all three covers to the left of this story.
