Combiner Wars Leader Ultra Magnus New Images
Posted by News Fetcher on May 10 '15 at 10:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Via Mr Toys+ on Facebook, we have another new look at the upcoming Generations Leader class Ultra Magnus. This Leader class figure is based on the IDW comics incarnation of the duly appointed enforcer of the Tyrest Accord, and even includes a little Minimus Ambus for you to have wearing the Magnus armor. As a further bonus, he also has the option to wield a hammer made up of his guns and shoulder-rocket launchers. It's a seriously fun looking toy - check out these new images and judge for yourself.

Alt-Modes Of Transformers: Robots In Disguise Megatronus, Prowl, Ironhide And Razorpaw Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on May 10 '15 at 06:15 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
After our Guide to Transformers: Robots In Disguise Mobile Game App Update, we have received requests from our members to unlock the new characters for the show. Here we are keeping the promise we made that we will.

We've previously showed you the Robot Modes of the upcoming characters for the show, and now it's time to reveal the Alt-Modes (or Vehicle Modes, if you prefer to call it that way).

With this News Post you will find in-game images of Transformers: Robots In Disguise Megatronus, Prowl, Ironhide and Razorpaw.

Megatronus turns into a tank very similar to Transformers: Prime Shockwave while Prowl retains his original G1 look. Ironhide's Alt-mode is a pick-up truck very much like the Michael Bay Transformers Live Action Movie vehicle mode and the newest Decepticon member Razorpaw turns into a buggy resembling Transformers: Age Of Extinction Rallyfighters.

You can checkout the images for the first time on the net, after the jump.

Teaser Silhouette Image of Takara Unite Warriors Constructicons
Posted by News Fetcher on May 10 '15 at 06:15 AM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
Small bit of news here - Takara designer Hisashi Yuki has once again taken to his Twitter, this time teasing the upcoming Unite Warriors Constructicons figures, which will of course be able to combine to form the mighty Devastator - who himself had been previously teased by Yuki. Presumably, these will all be relatively similar to their Hasbro counterparts, albeit with some possible paint application alterations.

Unfortunately, all we have for now is a silhouette image, but you can still make out some of the cool poses that they're in. Sound off with your thoughts after the break, and keep checking back for more updates!

TFW's Combiner Wars First Aid In-Hand Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on May 09 '15 at 10:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We're leading off now with the next of the Combiner Wars Protectobots - and the first of the four recently-released Wave 3 Deluxes! Deluxe Wave 3 brings in the four limbs of the Protectobot combiner, Defensor, and we proudly bring you this gallery of First Aid!

First Aid is a heavy remold of the Decepticon, Offroad. By "heavy remold" we mean "the basic toy is the same, but everything about it has been changed up". It's a really nice way to reuse the design but also give First Aid the distinct identity he deserves. Both modes are solid and look great - and there's lots of channels molded in the surface of the robot mode parts, reflecting Alex Milne's designs for First Aid in the More than Meets the Eye comic. As with Offroad, the poseability is excellently done, and the remolding on First Aid does little to hamper the range of movement that this mold presents.

Overall, First Aid is a really well done Autobot. There is a lot of personality in the design, and he will likely fit into any collection, either as a part of the Protectobots, or with the crew of the Lost Light. Check out our gallery to admire this one for yourselves:

Universities Conduct Research On Leadership Based On The Transformers Franchise
Posted by News Fetcher on May 09 '15 at 09:00 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
University of Binghamton and University of Nebraska-Lincoln are currently conducting research on Leadership with the leaders of Transformers Franchise as examples.

"We believe that Transformers presents three key lessons about leadership," said Seth Spain, an assistant professor of organizational behavior who studies "the dark side of work" at Binghamton University. These lessons are are: 1) flatter groups are more successful—sharing power is more valuable than trying to use power for the selfish benefit of oneself; 2) in general, leaders tend to be exceptional people; and finally, 3) intelligence (cognitive ability and skill) is a particularly important attribute for a leader to have. These messages align well with the current academic literature about what kinds of individuals emerge as leaders and what it takes to be effective as a leader.

"'The Transformers' characters and the stories told in the cartoon are a modern example of traditional folklore as a means of educating individuals about leadership. And, as examples go, one that is particularly relevant since the generation that watched them and were exposed to the toys are in their mid-30s to early-40s. They are the decision makers of today and the immediate future" says Peter Harms, assistant professor of management at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Transformers: Robots In Disguise Episode 15 & 16 Canadian Airdates
Posted by News Fetcher on May 09 '15 at 08:30 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
MSN has revealed the Canadian Airdates for Transformers: Robots In Disguise Episode 15 & 16.

Episode tiles and descriptions aren't available right now but based on the airdates, we can predict that the remainder of the season may run without interruption. Fans speculated that the mid-season break for rest of the countries other than United States was due to the fact that US needs to catch up on the episodes aired by many countries many weeks before.

Based on Canadian airdates, we can assume that the rest of the world will follow suit.

Episode 15 - Airs June 20, 2015

Episode 16 - Airs June 27, 2015

The show will continue to air on the Canadian Teletoon channel.

Combiner Wars Optimus Maximus Promotional Art Reveals Ironhide And Prowl
Posted by News Fetcher on May 08 '15 at 09:00 PM
By Shin Densetsu from TFW2005:
Back in March we got our 1st look at Optimus Maximus promotional art. However it was just a look at the top of his body. While we have yet to see the art in its entirety, we are now somewhat close.

According to Thundershot, the person who leaked the image of Combiner Wars G2 Superion leaked another image showing Ultra Prime. While Ultra Prime isn't new, the Optimus Maximus promo art(lower body this time) can be seen behind it. This time however, we can now see Combiner Wars Prowl & Combiner Wars Ironhide as the legs for Optimus Maximus. Prowl & Ironhide were listed in store computers months back. Now we get our 1st glimpse at what they may look like.

TFW's Combiner Wars Groove In-Hand Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on May 08 '15 at 12:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We're finishing off Wave 3 of the Combiner Wars Legends and kicking off our galleries of the Combiner Wars Protectobots in one fell swoop - it's the turn of Groove to take the spotlight! Protectobot Groove is no longer the same size as Streetwise, Blades or First Aid, but is instead the Legends class member of the team. He's not an essential part of Defensor, but when he combines, it is as armor for the gestalt.

Groove sports a cool highway cop-style motorcycle alternate mode, which transforms into a neatly articulated robot mode. There's a lot of motion in both the arms and legs, and even a tiny bit of head movement from side to side. Because of the alternate mode, Groove ends up with a small torso and long legs, which looks a bit weird, but it's mitigated by the fact that Groove can strike lots of nice poses. The chest armor mode is a real transformation - it's not just sticking the vehicle on the chest of the combiner like with Blackjack - and it fits solidly. The only real fault we can find is that Groove has no accessory - a nice blaster, like the one that comes with Legends Optimus Prime, really brings out the best of what this toy has to offer.

Overall, Groove is a neat little toy. He's just started arriving at US retail, so be sure to keep an eye out for him and his fellow Legends Viper and Warpath if you like what you see here.

Alpha Trion Included with TakaraTomy Ultra Magnus?
Posted by News Fetcher on May 08 '15 at 06:30 AM
By Joe Moore from TFW2005:
This looks like it could be pretty cool. BWTF has posted an image showing that the TakaraTomy Leader Class "Legends" Ultra Magnus may come with an Alpha Trion, which will be a repaint of Minimus Ambus. Since we don't have an official source on this, we can't confirm if it's legit, but it sure looks that way.

New Color Image of MP-26 Masterpiece Road Rage!
Posted by News Fetcher on May 08 '15 at 05:00 AM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
TFW2005 site sponsors BigBadToyStore and RobotKingdom have just put up preorders for the highly-anticipated MP-26 Masterpiece Road Rage figure, giving us our first look at her color scheme, alt-mode, and accessories. She is very faithful to her original Road Rage colors, with an alt-mode that, apart from presumably the colors, appears identical to Tracks'. As for her accessories, she will come with a mini Twincast boombox - the rebuilt form of Blaster (AKA Billy).

Get your preorders in here!

New Pictures of MMC Titanika!

By MetalStorm from TFW2005:
Courtesy to board member Parasidian, who posted full color and alt mode reveal pics of Mastermind Creations Titanika (BM Strika), shown in Peaugh's video review of Salvia Prominon (Solus Prime).

Titanika seems to be well-proportioned, albeit with some long legs and the deep purple really contrasts her gold accents. A solid looking vehicle mode that seems to capture the homage of BM Strika decently.

Discuss after the jump.
