More than Meets the Eye #38 Preview
Posted by News Fetcher on March 03 '15 at 12:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
IDW have sent out the previews for this week's comics and it's a double event! Here we have a preview of More than Meets the Eye #38 for you. The crew of the Lost Light's time-traveling adventure culminates at a point where you could say it all began - and the future is in the hands of one who "in response to a crisis of morale precipitated by his own woeful captaincy, introduced a reward system based on his own face" (Autobot Megatron is awesome!)

Transformers & More than Meets the Eye 38 Retailer Incentive Covers
Posted by News Fetcher on March 03 '15 at 12:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Along with IDW's Transformers comic previews this week we had a look at the retailer incentive covers to Transformers #38 and More than Meets the Eye #38. The pair of covers feature Optimus Prime and Megatron respectively, and are done in a simple yet striking style (we're thinking of some of the Acid Free prints by Tom Whalen for a similar style).

Check them out, and also be sure to check out the previews for this week's comics - it's a double bill of More than Meets the Eye and the title formerly known as Robots in Disguise!

TFW's Robots in Disguise Bumblebee In-Hand Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on March 02 '15 at 11:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Carrying on our series of Robots in Disguise galleries, today we're highlighting the main character of the new show, the one and only Bumblebee! Robots in Disguise Bumblebee remains a muscle car as he has been of late, but has traded arm cannons for a suitably huge greatsword.

Robots in Disguise Bumblebee is very much a middling release in the line. On the positives, he's got a good range of movement including a waist swivel, and can strike some good action poses with that sword of his, including a few with a two-handed grip. On the less great front, the car roof on the back of the legs gets in the way on some poses, and the feet lack substantial heels, so some poses are really hard to maintain. The gears on the doors are also a cause for concern - the teeth on mine have already worn down in paces after only a few transformations.

Overall, Bumblebee is a release with personality and poseability, but he is not without flaws by any means. Check out his gallery to see what you think of the leading Autobot in the new show, Robots in Disguise!

- Also MP Star Saber is going to be released in March at last.
- I can't help wondering about Victory Leo....

- This year is the 30th anniversary of Transformers arriving in Japan. What do you suggest the fans to pay attention to?

Colored Renders of X-Transbots Boost "Windchager" and Hatch "Tailgate"
Posted by News Fetcher on March 01 '15 at 10:15 AM
By Sentinel from TFW2005:
X-Transbots isn't slowing down any time soon with their product announcements. They have released colored renders for two more upcoming figures in their MasterMini line. They have teased these figures since last summer, but this is the first good, detailed look at their bot and alt modes in full color and from multiple angles.

Masterpiece Boost "Windcharger" and Hatch "Tailgate" are designed to scale with the Takara Masterpiece line in both bot and alt modes and look to be on a comparable level of engineering. Both figures come with interchangeable faces, plus Hatch comes with an interchangeable chest plate as well for either a cartoon-accurate or toy-accurate look.

Look for pre-orders to be up in the near future at your favorite site sponsors.

TFW's Robots in Disguise Steeljaw and Underbite In-Hand Galleries
Posted by News Fetcher on March 01 '15 at 08:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We're carrying on with our galleries of the new Robots in Disguise line, and it's time to bring on the bad guys! We're doing a two for one today folks with a look at both the Warrior class Steeljaw and the One Step changer Underbite!

First up, Steeljaw is the wolf-man and leader of the Decepticon escapees in the new show. He's got a cool design, complete with an articulated wolf-tail, but suffers a bit with a heavy backpack and needing to use the tail to balance. The design of the elbows also scares me - they feel like they could break (a real fear, given Grimlock's). Not one of the best releases in the line, all things considered.

Next up is Underbite. The villain in the pilot episode, he's one of the debut One Step changers for the line and is quite fun as a desk fiddle toy. He looks decently accurate to his on-screen version, and does have some limited poseability in dino mode.

The pair are by no means perfect, but they are decent representations of their characters. Check them out and see what you think.

Robots in Disguise Hero Mashers Optimus Prime, Strongarm, Clampdown, Thunderhoof, Bisk and more!
Posted by News Fetcher on March 01 '15 at 12:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
TFW2005 member Nevermore has done some sleuthing and uncovered a derth of information on the future of the Transformers Hero Mashers line.

The line will carry on for the forseeable future with Robots in Disguise themed releases, starting with the set of Bumblebee, Sideswipe and Steeljaw (who are out in Canada), and then continue with the three we saw at Toy Fair 2015 - Optimus Prime, Strongarm, and Clampdown. There's new images of the latter three, via Hasbro Canada, for you to enjoy.

From there Amazon Canada has posted listings of what appears to be six more releases in the line, which will give us Hero Mashers versions of characters like Quillfire, Thunderhoof, Fracture, Bixk (we assume they mean the lobster, Bisk), Jazz, and Drift.

It sounds as though the Hero Mashers have a long future ahead of them - and also, that this may be the only way for fans to get versions of some of these characters to add to their collection.

TFW's Robots in Disguise Drift In-Hand Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on February 28 '15 at 09:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We're kicking off our galleries for the toys from the new Robots in Disguise show with a look at one of the guest Autobots - it's time for Drift to take the spotlight! Like his incarnation in Transformers Age of Extinction, this version of Drift is very strongly influenced by the look of Japanese samurai, though unlike the movie version, you can see this Drift's face.

Robots in Disguise Drift is a Warrior class figure, transforming between robot and car mode in a handful of fairly simple steps. He's big and chunky, and definitely feels like a throwback to the simpler style of Transformers from the Transformers Armada / Cybertron days. The look is quite streamlined, giving the figure a very "animated" look to him.

Drift wields two swords, which he can stow in his waist armor in robot mode, and they fit beneath the car in vehicle mode. Drift has a decent range of articulation, and can strike some nice poses. All in all, he's a great representative of the Warrior size class. Check out his gallery and decide for yourself:

In memoriam - Leonard Nimoy
Posted by News Fetcher on February 27 '15 at 12:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We are sad to report that veteran actor Leonard Nimoy has passed away. Leonard Nimoy provided the voices of Sentinel Prime in Transformers Dark of the Moon and Galvatron in Transformers the Movie in 1986, but he will perhaps be best remembered for playing the role of the science officer of the Enterprise, Mr Spock, in Star Trek, in a role that spanned almost 50 years from his debut as the Vulcan in "The Cage" to his final appearance in "Star Trek Into Darkness".

On behalf of the site, of fans of science fiction, and anyone who has gazed skywards and imagined traveling the spaceways, we offer our condolences to Mr Nimoy's family, and we also warmly remember one of the greatest men to have graced our screens in both his acting and his voice acting roles.

Live long, and prosper.

Mairghread Scott and John Barber talk Combiner Wars
Posted by News Fetcher on February 27 '15 at 12:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Comic Book Resources have posted a new interview talking about the upcoming Combiner Wars crossover with creators Mairghread Scott and John Barber.

A few of the key points of the interview include:

The Combiner Wars will be on two fronts - both an information war, a "war of influence", and a physical war. Starscream is at the heart of all of it, of course - with Optimus, Windblade and Prowl all being key players.

Superion has a few new moves - he's described as a cross between "an NBA star and Godzilla"

The seeds of Combiner Wars have been sown since Windblade first appeared in Dark Cybertron.

On an unrelated note, we'll also be seeing more Transformers of more body types - not only female characters but more diversity in general, more religions, creeds and classes.

Check out the full interview at Comic Book Resources, which includes some spoilers for the background of the crossover event.

We recently learned that the the Fan Built Combiner would be an Autobot hailing from the Sea of Rust - and now, the third and final round of poll voting has begun! This round is notable for containing the oft-discussed gender option, which had been hinted at by Hasbro previously at Toy Fair and in interviews.

This time, the following choices are offered:

• Gender (Female, Male)
• Personality (Loyal, Leader, Independent)
• Name (Victorion, Slammoth, Quakebreath)
• Nemesis (Devastator, Galvatronus, Menasor)
