Dark of the Moon Ark Playset In Hand Images and Review
Posted by News Fetcher on May 22 '11 at 12:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here's one for all you Cyberverse fans - the Dark of the Moon Autobot Ark Cyberverse playset has been released in Australia, and Swoop of the Ozformers has bought and reviewed the set. One thing is certain - this is a big playset! Check out the size comparison with Deluxe Class toys - it's huge! The base mode is cool and packed with features for the Cyberverse toys, but bad news about the connection ports - it cannot be linked up to the smaller Cyberverse Plus Action Sets.

Check out the full review and more images over at Ozformers - Transformers Collectors Australia.

Lawsons Exclusive Optimus Prime Darkside Version Colored Image
Posted by News Fetcher on May 22 '11 at 11:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here's something that almost got lost in the shuffle. The official Japanese movie site (coming to us by way of Snakas) has updated with a photoshopped fully colored image of the Lawson's Exclusive Dark of the Moon Optimus Prime Darkside Version (what a mouthful). These images indicate that the Darkside Version will be mainly black, with silver swords trimmed in red, red windows and gold highlights and flames in the vehicle mode. He looks pretty nifty in these early pictures, so I'm sure once we finally see the real thing he'll look every bit as awesome.

This exclusive Optimus Prime is only available with a purchase of a ticket for Darkside Moon - the Japanese dub of Dark of the Moon - from Lawson's Stores in Japan. Check out the Optimus Prime Darkside Version resources entry for more information on this toy.

Revoltech Movie Series Optimus Prime?
Posted by News Fetcher on May 22 '11 at 11:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
An interesting little image has popped up on 4Chan. What you can see here to the left is a view of the back of a possible upcoming Kaiyado Revoltech Optimus Prime. For those unfamiliar, Revoltech as a series takes many classic robot - and other - characters, and uses a unique revolver joint system that allows for unparalleled poseability in their scale and price point. We've had some Dreamwave inspired Revoltechs in the past - this though would be the first foray into a different series for Revoltech. No other details known other than what you see here - but chances are, Optimus will be a part of the Sci-Fi Revoltech sub-series.

Stay tuned for more news and information.

Dark of the Moon Laserbeak Alternate Head
Posted by News Fetcher on May 21 '11 at 01:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards member Snake_eyes1975 has shared with us a rather interesting scan from Dark of the Moon Laserbeak's instructions - check it out to the left. That's a new head sculpt! Hasbro evidently are continuing their trend of hinting at potential future remolds by featuring the new heads in their instruction manuals. Laserbeak's instructions feature one such new head - and it's a pretty mean looking bird all things considered. Could this be the emergence of Movie universe Buzzsaw?

Dark of the Moon Wave 3 Official Images
Posted by News Fetcher on May 21 '11 at 01:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Three is the lucky number today! Good things come in threes, and we've got three sets of new official wave three toy images for you! First up, we have official images of Dark of the Moon Voyager Wave 3 Fireburst Optimus Prime, and he's looking fine with his darker deco contrasting against the vibrant firey reds and oranges. He was accompanied by official images of Shockwave, who is actually a part of wave 2, but is being repacked as a part of wave 3 as well.

Next up, we have official images of the recently released Dark of the Moon Deluxe Wave 3. Nitro Bumblebee, Mudflap, Thundercracker and Laserbeak make up this assortment, and these images make all of them look pretty cool - especially Laserbeak with that huge wingspan.

Last but by no means least, Human Alliance Basic Wave 3 is covered by these official pictures! Wave 3 brings us a redeco of Sandstorm from Wave 1 in gray and black, possibly an urban camo or lunar buggy deco. He is joined by an all-new mold - and that's the guy you can see to the left. Yes, Decepticon Drag Strip is back and joining the ranks of the Human Alliance series. He's looking very sharp in his traditional color scheme, and has a couple of throwbacks to his Power Core Combiners cousin Overrun - although we're pretty sure this is Drag Strip thanks to some Walmart listings that ATT's Zobovor uncovered some time ago. Official photography of the assortment is rounded out with some new images of the Wave 2 Human Alliance Basics Whirl and Tailpipe, who are looking awesome.

These images come to you via 4Chan. Read on to check them all out.

Update - Michael Bay & James Cameron Talk Transformers: Dark Of The Moon 3D
Posted by News Fetcher on May 20 '11 at 08:00 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Participating at a press conference, Michael Bay and James Cameron discussed the challenges and benefits of 3-D moviemaking at Paramount Studios on Wednesday.

Mr. Bay then showed 15 minutes of assorted footage to the audience. It is said that the opening sequence of Transformers: Dark of the Moon was revealed at the event. And what did that contained? It’s a story to be told in few minutes.

"I came up with that building sequence while I was doing stomach crunches," Bay said after the footage played. "That's the weirdest place I've ever come up with an action scene."

"I just watched the movie and couldn't tell the difference between digital and film," Cameron said. "This movie is a testament to the fact that it's indistinguishable to the eye."

You can read more at Yahoo! and Collider. Beware, Spoilers!!!

Update:A video from the Discussion Session is now available online. You can take a look at the YouTube and Vimeo version of the same video after the jump.

Michael Bay uploaded the 3D edit of the Transformers Dark of the Moon trailer to Youtube. There are a couple of bits of new footage in there, such as an awesome panoramic view of the inside of the Ark, Optimus ejecting a cartridge from his gun, Bumblebee jumping into the screen over an obstacle, and a new clip of what is potentially a major battle. You'll have to check out the trailer to see that last one, we're not spoiling that for you! Check it out below:

Dark of the Moon Rally Sidearm Sideswipe and Bumblebee Released in the UK
Posted by News Fetcher on May 20 '11 at 04:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Saving the best (or at least, the most local to myself) for last, the store exclusive Sidearm Sideswipe and 2007 Movie Bumblebee Recolors have also been released - this time in the UK. Yes, the UK is getting these exclusives, which are Walmart Exclusive in the US, at Sainsburys stores. Member dkreed7 who made the sighting reports there is also a tag on shelves for the Deluxe Class Optimus Prime, another Walmart exclusive.

There's no word on if these Walmart US exclusives are going to be exclusive to Sainsburys in the UK, like the Ravage Infiltration set, or if they are going to be more widely available, as for example a shared exclusive between Sainsburys and the Walmart-owned Asda.

One final note is that the UK will be getting the Scan Series Toys R Us exclusives; they will be Toys R Us exclusives in the UK as well.

The KMart exclusive Autobot Daredevil Squad is our second new Transformers release today. Priced $17.99, it was again released on launch day but slipped under the radar thanks to the amount of new material released. The set includes a redeco of the Human Alliance Basic, Backfire, and a silver version of Revenge of the Fallen Bumblebee.
