TFW's Robots in Disguise Grimlock In-Hand Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on March 09 '15 at 03:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We're back with another gallery of the Robots in Disguise Warrior class figures, belatedly finishing up our photos of wave 1! Here for your enjoyment is Grimlock!

Grimlock is a Dinobot, so he transforms into a tyrannosaur, just like the original Grimlock. The transformation is pretty neatly executed though the dino arms just sort of hang off the back. The way the design is done gives Grimlock some size and presence. In the show, he's a bruiser who thinks with his fists, and the toy gives him an appropriately bulky robot mode. That said, Grimlock lacks an accessory for some reason, and his articulation is a little restricted.

We then come on to the two biggest flaws on this figure. The lesser of the two is that this Grimlock is actually quite a small toy. I'm not normally a stickler for scale, but to have the character who is "the big guy" on the show come out smaller than Bumblebee or Strongarm is a little jarring. Second are the elbow joints. They use a weird pseudo-ratchet with a little plastic block pushing against teeth in the arm. The plastic on the forearms is thin, though, and if the block gets caught the wrong way on the teeth, it will tear right through the forearms. It's a really bad design choice, one I've personally experienced as you're actually looking at my second Grimlock in this gallery - my first broke within about a week of opening him.

Owing to all the flaws, I have a hard time recommending this one. It's a pity because it is a decent looking design, and would otherwise be okay, were it not just for those elbows. Check out the gallery to see this toy and decide if the looks make up for the noted flaws.

Masterpiece Exhaust In Box Images
Posted by News Fetcher on March 08 '15 at 12:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Via Cleon of Ozformers, we can share some good news in the form of a Yahoo Japan auction with in package images of Masterpiece MP-23 Exhaust.

Why is this good news? Well, given the deco of the toy is based on the Marlboro cigarettes deco of the Lancia Stratos, Philip Morris has issued Cease & Desist notices to US online retailers who would have carried the figure. There have been further reports of UK based retailers not carrying the figure either due to direct pressure or because Hasbro Asia would not export to them - all then coupled with reports that even some specialty stores in Hong Kong would not carry the figure. Naturally with these reports running rampant through the fandom, rumors and assumptions of a total cancellation from Takara-Tomy were being spoken of.

However, this auction on Yahoo Japan - showing the toy's box - suggests that the worst case scenario is not coming to pass, and Exhaust, the Destron Industrial Espionage agent, will see his release after all. He just might end up being a little hard for fans to get their hands on.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
TFW2005 member Rookbartley attended the Children's Museum of Indianapolis Transformers Exhibition, and has shared with us some images of the exhibit. The Age of Extinction Optimus Prime truck greets guests at the front of the museum, and there is a display of 160 Transformers toys, including a Lucky Draw Energon Optimus Prime, Japanese exclusive pieces like Victory Saber, and even a previously unseen prototype of a Voyager class Starscream from an aborted line that never made it far off the drawing board in 2011. The wide selection of toys on show come from the collections of Pete Sinclair, Tony Preto and Karl Hartman.

Check out the images attached to this post. They are not an exhaustive showcase of the exhibit, so if you're in the neighborhood, be sure to drop by when the exhibition opens to the public.

Play With This Too Wastelander Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on March 08 '15 at 12:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Third party group Play With This Too have revealed a new addition to their lineup. Speaking with the Cybercast podcast, PWTT's Rik Alvarez showed off the concept of Wastelander, a planned redeco of the group's figure inspired by Pretender Grimlock in colors seemingly inspired by Beast Wars Dinobot. According to Rik, this will be one of the stretch goal figures from the group's Kickstarter.

Play With This Too is a group made up of former Hasbro staff, who are currently kickstarting their own line of action figures based loosely around the Pretenders and other classic 80s franchises like Inhumanoids and Centurions. Find out more here.

TFW's review of Robots in Disguise's pilot episodes
Posted by News Fetcher on March 07 '15 at 05:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Robots in Disguise, the latest Transformers cartoon, has begun airing worldwide with it's premiere taking place in the US next week. The show has just premiered in the UK, where this fan is based, so it is my pleasure to share with you a few thoughts on the show ahead of its US release. My full thoughts will be after the break, but the too long; did not read version is: this is a good show. I was entertained for the whole hour-long (with commercials) runtime and found myself laughing at a fair number of the jokes. The show has a much-needed lighter tone, it has a different direction to previous shows, but at its heart, it is very much a Transformers show.

Read on for a full breakdown of my quick thoughts on the pilot. There may be some light spoilers.

KFC Twincast with Rosanna and Scorpion Cassettes
Posted by News Fetcher on March 07 '15 at 03:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Third party Keith's Fantasy Club (or KFC) have announced via their Weibo that they will be redecoing their third party Blaster, Transistor, in a Twincast themed redeco. Twincast was the resurrected form of Blaster after he was slain in the 1987 Japanese series the Headmasters. KFC is calling this released Doubledeck.

Along with the Doubledeck figure, KFC have announced a pair of cassettes. One of them, named Mandy, is based on Rosanna, the most popular character to come out of the Japanese series Kiss Players. The other, named Stinger, is the release of the scorpion cassette KFC teased at TFcon 2014, and is based on a design that was intended for Transformers the Movie in 1986 but never came to be. Check out some images of the three attached to this post.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
E-Hobby have added a listing to their website for a Transformers Cloud omnibus comic. The comic, according to the listing, is a collection of stories that were originally published on the web - so it sounds as though it is a collection of the various Cloud story chapters.

According to the listing the omnibus is 24 pages long, and will be offered as a bonus with the purchase of the Transformers Cloud toys from 24 March 2015. Those who preordered Hellwarp will also be getting a complimentary copy on his release.

Via Amiami we have word of an upcoming Kabaya Transformers release. Named "D Collection", these are a set of three PVC (or similar material, we'd wager) figures. The three characters are Optimus Prime, Megatron and Starscream, each being poseable at the head, waist, and shoulders, and featuring a few different accessories. The figures also have chase edition "clear" versions. Check out a few images of these new Kabaya releases after the break.

Combiner Wars Deluxe Wave 2 pack in comics feature extended bios
Posted by News Fetcher on March 04 '15 at 12:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Via TFW2005 member Starscream Gaga we can reveal that the pack-in comics for Combiner Wars Deluxe Wave 2 feature extended character bios on the backs of the comics. The bios are written in the style of the old Marvel or Dreamwave More than Meets the Eye bios, and presented as psych reports in universe, with the Decepticon ones being written by Soundwave, and the Autobot ones by the ubiquitous Rung!

The extended bios flesh out the characters a lot more in the way that only a full on who's who profile can. Fans of Wildrider might be sad to note though that the Offroad bio directly mentions how Offroad has replaced a "fallen Stunticon" as a member of the Menasor combiner group - suggesting in the universe created by the toy fiction that Wildrider is no more. The fact he shares Wildrider's colors is also noted, in a cool touch - you can really see that some attention was put into these bios. Check them out after the break, with thanks to Starscream Gaga for sharing them with us.

Earlier today the popular third party group Maketoys revealed on their Facebook page a Metrotitan repaint of their Utopia figure: Dystopia!

Maketoys will open up sales for Dystopia on March 10. At this time we do not know if this will be a Maketoys exclusive or the price point for this repaint, but March 10 is next week so we should see news coming at us fast!

Check out the announcement pic after the jump and stay tuned for more information.

Thanks to TFW2005 boards member Type-R for linking us to episode 9 of the Q Transformers. With all of the recent Tracks discussion, it's only fitting that this video debuts Tracks! Enjoy!
