Masterpiece Star Saber Tops Japanese Sales Charts
Posted by News Fetcher on March 27 '15 at 02:16 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here is an interesting nugget of news we thought to share with you. Japanese retailer Toynes produces a weekly "top 5" of best selling items, and for the week of March 16 to March 22, the toy topping the charts is Masterpiece Star Saber - and considering that he only came out on 21 March unlike the rest of the chart, this is really impressive.

Of course, it is hard to judge if this surge was down to preorders, or whether this was purely in-store purchases, but in either case, it paints a very healthy picture for Masterpiece Star Saber's sales, and - dare we say - portends well for other fan-favorites getting the Masterpiece treatment down the line.

Akiva Goldsman Hired For A Transformers Cinematic Universe
Posted by News Fetcher on March 27 '15 at 01:00 PM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Paramount Pictures is launching a cinematic universe around its blockbuster Transformers property that will be overseen by Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman, Deadline reports. It is stated that the Transformers Franchise will follow a Cinematic Universe, very much like the current Marvel, DC and Star Wars franchises. The series is said to have Sequels as well as Spin-offs.

Mr. Goldsman has worked on famous scripts such as A Beautiful Mind, The Da Vinci Code and I Am Legend as well as the infamous Batman & Robin.

"Goldsman is in deep negotiations to develop Transformers sequels and spinoffs with Michael Bay, who directed all four films in the franchise and could really stand to hand the reins to someone else, as well as producer Lorenzo di Bonventura and executive producer Steven Spielberg" says TheWrap. "The Transformers expansion signals that Paramount is serious about competing with its studio peers when it comes to broadening big franchise properties."

Angry Birds: Transformers Update Brings New Characters And New Features
Posted by News Fetcher on March 27 '15 at 04:00 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Angry Birds: Transformers Mobile Game was updated today, bringing new characters and new areas to unlock.

Strangely, no official notice was made regarding the update other than the fact that a Bug Fix was done to improve the stability and performance. However, 2005 Boards Member MrByatis is bringing us the information and images from the update.

First of all, two new characters are introduced to the game and both of them represented by Stella. One character is Blackarachnia from Transformers: Animated and the other one being Arcee (finally!!!) who was teased for so long on the old Loading Screen. Rovio released two games based on Stella recently and we can assume that this is the reason why Arcee was delayed.

Other features include:

New areas to be unlocked on the map.

New Challenges

Skywarp Airfield Repair Functionality (requires 5000 coins)

New Loading Screen image

The new update is rolling out on the Android platform at the moment and our members who are using the iOS platform confirmed that the update is not yet available for them. Patience, folks… it will come.

Check out the screenshots by MrByatis, after the jump.

TFW's Combiner Wars Dead End In-Hand Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on March 26 '15 at 03:31 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
With the news that we are getting a Combiner Wars Wildrider as a repaint of Dead End, now seemed like a great time to share a look at Combiner Wars Dead End!

Dead End is a sports car, and a sharp looking one at that. The robot transformation is actually quite straightforward, but one thing I liked on the transformation was the way the legs rotated around, in a manner that somewhat recalls the style of the original toy's transformation. Robot mode is decent, with a good range of articulation, and big feet mean it is easy to pose Dead End. Special mention should go to the glorious shade of red used, which nicely evokes the deco of the original Dead End. I also liked his weapon, a smokestack. Among a line of toys with huge guns, swords, guns that double up as swords and so forth, it is refreshing to see a character going to battle with what is, essentially, a lead pipe to bludgeon his enemies.

Overall, the Combiner Wars Dead End is a decent release. He's solid and has some cool touches. Check out our gallery and see for yourself:

Record Store Day 2015 exclusive: Shockwave discography
Posted by News Fetcher on March 26 '15 at 03:15 PM
By KidDynamite from TFW2005:
Now here's an interesting entry, and something of a blast from the past. Revelation Records has announced a Record Store Day 2015 vinyl reissue of the entire discography of the 90's era Erie PA hardcore band Shockwave. For those that don't remember, Shockwave was a Transformers themed band through and through, with albums and songs named after Transformers, G1 audio samples, and a band logo featuring a masked Decepticon symbol.

The record is called The World is Ours: The Complete Recordings and is a double 12" in a gatefold sleeve. In a really nice touch, it also includes a clear red flexi 7" that can be used as a tech spec decoder on the album art.

This looks like a really nice and certainly unexpected release from this long dormant band. Check out the reveal video after the jump.

Play With This Too Desolataur Painted Prototype
Posted by News Fetcher on March 26 '15 at 02:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Play With This Too have shared images of their action figure styled take on Generation 1 Skullgrin, Desolataur, with merely three days left on their Kickstarter program. These images show a 3D printed version of Desolataur, so it's not the final product which will be smoother, but gives an impression of what the final release might be like. There are a lot of images of the prototype, which you can check out on the group's Facebook page - we've attached a few of the best and most insightful here.

Play With This Too is a new third party group, made up of former Hasbro staff and other toy industry veterans including Rik Alvarez and Aaron Archer. Find out more about the Kickstarter campaign here.

Takara Reveals MP-18B Bluestreak!
Posted by News Fetcher on March 25 '15 at 08:46 PM
By Matty from TFW2005:
It's happening! TakaraTomyMall has just revealed a Masterpiece figure that will surely send fans into a frenzy: MP-18B Bluestreak! That's right, it's a blue Bluestreak! This deco is based on the Diaclone figure and has been a color scheme desperately wanted by the fanbase.

According to the web page, it looks like this will be a limited release of about 2,000 and available in Japan, likely as a web or other type of exclusive, so it may be one of the more difficult pieces to obtain.

More than Meets the Eye #39 iTunes Preview
Posted by News Fetcher on March 25 '15 at 04:01 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The highly anticipated More than Meets the Eye #39 is coming in two weeks time, on April 8th - and iTunes has just added a preview of this next instalment of the saga. Issue #39 is titled "Return of the D.J.D." and delivers on that promise from the word go, with the five members of the Decepticon punishment squad appearing prominently in these three pages. Fans be warned, there's something of a spoiler on page 3 - though those who enjoy trying to put all the pieces of the plot together will eat this one right up!

Mark your calendars, it's April 8th for More than Meets the Eye #39, the return of the Decepticon Justice Division, and the introduction of Deszaras / Deathsaurus into the IDW Transformers universe!
