Botcon has posted a fresh video to Youtube, revealing their fourth 2015 convention exclusive.

But who is "The Boss"? Watch the reveal video to find out:

Transformers Windblade #2 Retailer Incentive Cover & Preview
Posted by News Fetcher on April 21 '15 at 08:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
IDW has released a preview of the new issue of Transformers: Windblade, hitting comic stores tomorrow. The preview does not feature any more pages of content compared to the iTunes preview we previously saw, but you can check out the recap and roll-call (which amusingly refers to Prowl's function as "Prowl", you know you're on to something when you can only be described in terms of yourself... )

That being said, we do also have the alternate covers to this issue to share with you, including a very nice retailer incentive cover showing Superion in flight. There's also the subscription variant cover, which shows Prowlastator bearing down on a wounded Defensor (who is shown in the Transformers #40 sub cover, the two combine to make a larger piece of art)

Check out the covers, and the preview, attached to this post.

TFW's Combiner Wars Superion and Menasor Galleries
Posted by News Fetcher on April 20 '15 at 02:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We've shared with you the individuals in the Combiner Wars line - and today, we bring you the big guns! The Generations Combiner Wars line's first two waves bring us updates of two iconic Generation 1 combiners, Superion and Menasor - and they together form this latest gallery update.

The Combiner Wars gestalts are huge. They dwarf even current Leader class toys when they are fully assembled, and possess a full range of motion. It's not perfect - Menasor in particular struggles a bit with the weight of two extra robots up top, and both have issues balancing in some action poses - but it is amazing to see Hasbro step up and bring us something like this, when just a few years ago it looked like the best we would see would be the Power Core Combiners or the likes of Fall of Cybertron Bruticus. Both have some really nice details worked in, too.

Check out our galleries of this pair of awesome giants - and stay tuned for more gallery updates soon.

Combiner Wars Menasor Gallery

Don't forget our sister site Toyark is running a contest where you can win some cool Combiner Wars goodies for sharing your own Combiner Transformers photos on Instagram - find out more here!

Hasbro 2015 Q1 Earnings Conference Call - Transformers Saves The Day
Posted by News Fetcher on April 20 '15 at 10:30 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Hasbro held their 2015 Q1 Earnings Conference Call few hours ago and they have done well thanks to Transformers (from Boys Category) and My Little Pony (from Girls Category).

"Additionally, 2014 had two very significant motion pictures in the summer months, Transformers: Age of Extinction and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Both of these films benefited from shipments in the first half of last year. In 2015 there is a tremendous film slate we are supporting, headlined by The Avengers: Age of Ultron in theatres on May 1st and Star Wars: The Force Awakens on December 18th. These release dates are spread across a greater period of time versus last year’s concentrated timing of summer releases. There are also several other notable films this year, including Jurassic World on June 12th, Ant-Man on July 17th and our own Jem and the Holograms on October 23rd."

"Finally, revenues grew 74% in the Entertainment and Licensing segment. This strong performance was the result of growth in lifestyle licensing revenues for Hasbro Franchise Brands, notably MY LITTLE PONY and TRANSFORMERS, as well as the contribution of a multiyear digital streaming deal for Hasbro Studios programming."


During the Q&A session, Hasbro CEO thanked the Transformers Franchise and stated that Transformers saw the fastest growth in the last quarter.

By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Hasbro held their 2015 Q1 Earnings Conference Call few hours ago and TFW2005 attended the event as usual. One of the best statements came during the Q&A session. Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner confirmed the Transformers Cinematic Universe and the possible release year for Transformers 5.

"Our plan with the studio and filmakers you may have heard some writers being hired and we have in fact brought in Akiva Goldsman to lead a group of writers to really create a strategic plan around Transformers. We think there are any number of stories to be told told from the brand that has been around for 30 years with amazing canon and mythology. We would expect the sequel to the Transformers movie [TF4] to happen in 2017."

Stay tuned with TFW2005 for the best Transformers news... in the world!

Ultimate Edition Jetwing Prime In-Hand Images
Posted by News Fetcher on April 19 '15 at 12:15 PM
By Sentinel from TFW2005:
Genetic of TFND continues to provide us with early in-hand images of exciting new figures. Today we are treated to an in-depth collection of Ultimate Edition Jetwing Prime in all his glory.

This figure features additional paint apps, tinted windows, semi-articulated hands, a mini Allspark Cube, an entire armory of weapons including: knuckle-busters, Energon swords and hooks, Buster rifle, Striker cannon and more.

As a bit of a Leader Prime aficionado, I can say that this figure looks to hit all the sweet spots with a plethora of accessories and a top-of-the-line paint job (minus the missing pinstriping). If you don't have a Leader Prime in your collection, this looks to be the one to get.

Ultimate Jetwing Prime is scheduled to be released on April 24th.

Posted by News Fetcher on April 19 '15 at 08:30 AM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
Word comes in from our friend griffin-of-oz of Ozformers that the Australian release of the Rescue Bots Season 1 boxset has been altered to remove it's full season line up and instead offer a curated collection of episodes. The set is now called the "More Than Meets The Eye Set". He states that it was most likely due to price point issues with the retailers.

DX9 Mini-Devastator Prototype Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on April 19 '15 at 08:15 AM
By Sentinel from TFW2005:
We have news of a highly anticipated addition to the Legends-class War in Pocket line from third-party producer DX9. Posted on weibo by user ToysHome, DX9 has released prototype pictures of their attempt at a miniature Devastator.

So far this is only a partial reveal as the only figures that can been seen are the upper torso and arms of Devastator with the legs conspicuously missing. One thing to note is that this project appears at first glance to incorporate the combiner kibble into the figures for a non-parts-forming combiner.

It's unknown what the price point or anticipated release date will be for this project, but DX9's previous Legends-sized releases have been in two-packs, so it's not unreasonable to expect the same here, although a gift pack release is possible as well.

Make the jump to our boards to discuss this fun-sized project.

Technology Behind The Colombian Transformers: Age Of Extinction Digital Signage Projection Explained
Posted by News Fetcher on April 18 '15 at 06:45 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
An interesting article has popped up on the Digital Signage Today. The article explains the technology behind the Colombian Transformers: Age Of Extinction Digital Signage Projection; which displayed Transformers related product promos at the Calima shopping mall in Bogotá during the run of the 4th movie.

"LPX worked with projection mapping specialists Big Video, who designed a matrix of six Christie Roadster S+20K (3DLP technology, 20,000 lumens, SXGA+ resolution) and two Christie Roadster S+10K-M (3DLP, 11,500 lumens, SXGA+) projectors. Two S+20Ks were used to cover each side of the façade with the main part divided vertically into two areas, each one covered by one S+20K and one S+10K-M.

The video screened on the façade lasted seven minutes and contained fragments of the movie and promotional contents from the sponsors (General Motors, Hasbro, Oreo, Paramount and the Calima shopping mall). The projection mapping display played four times each night over three days, drawing an average of 350 spectators per show."


A recording of the Digital Signboard in action is available for you to watch, after the jump.

S3 E21 Four-Legged Hero - Cyber-Dog Servo puts the Rescue Bots' undercover status in jeopardy.
S3 E22 Endangered Species - The Bots go to extremes to protect endangered woodpeckers discovered by Boulder.

In related news, be sure to tune in to Discovery Family today at 1:30pm EST for another new episode of Rescue Bots, which kicks off a three-part arc introducing new characters (although there is some question whether it is this week or next in TV guides). Check out a promo image for the episode from the official Transformers Facebook page.
