Transformers: Robots In Disguise Mobile Game Update
Posted by News Fetcher on January 30 '15 at 08:00 PM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
A new update is available for the Transformers: Robots In Disguise Mobile Game. This update brings several new features including a sneak peek at the upcoming Comic Book and New Characters from the show.

We've noticed that the update is not available for every country yet and is not available for certain devices as well; indicating a staged rollout. Unfortunately after updating, the game progress goes back to the beginning and this is something you need to watch out for. Lots of design features are added, with better performance and shorter loading times.

Cutscenes are added before and after missions so that there is a storyline going on, instead of just going from one mission to another. So, people who are highly sensitive for Spoilers should avoid playing.

The official update description:

***Transmission From Cybertron***

Updated Interface

Power ups are now easier to pick up

New languages available (Polish, Turkish, Czech, Slovakian, Hungarian, Romanian, Swedish, Danish, Finish, Norwegian)

Added mission finished sequence

Added comic book story images

Added many more unlock codes. Keep searching!

Minor tweaks and tune-ups continuing to improve the app

You can grab the game from the following locations:
Android: Google Play Store
iOS: iTunes Store

Transformers: Windblade Interview with Mairghread Scott
Posted by News Fetcher on January 30 '15 at 12:15 PM
By Matty from TFW2005:
Comics Alliance had the opportunity to sit down with Transformers: Windblade writer Mairghread Scott for an interview about the upcoming Combiner Wars comic storyline.

As always, if you want to remain completely surprised and spoiler free, be safe and skip the rest.

The interview dives into the background of Windblade and her mini-series comic, her tie-in to the Combiner Wars, as well as what lies ahead for the popular fan created character. We've already received confirmation about Windblade's future, but for even more reassurance Scott once again confirmed what we all want to hear:

Comics Alliance: What plans do you have for her going forward? Is it right to say that the book will be continuing onwards as a series, even after “Combiner Wars” wraps up?

Mairghread Scott: It is absolutely right to say. Transformers: Windblade will not only continue after “Combiner Wars,” it will be dealing with the events of “Combiner Wars” for a long time. As far as plans go, I have way more plans than I should, for a lot of characters.

Almost none of them are nice though.


The Combiner Wars will start in March, who's ready to find out what Scott is hinting at? Make the jump to discuss your thoughts!

Mythbusters are taking on The Transformers
Posted by News Fetcher on January 29 '15 at 09:45 PM
By Sentinel from TFW2005:
Following their trend this season of testing TV and movie myths, the Discovery Channel show Mythbusters will be tackling the Transformers in an upcoming episode on Saturday, February 7, 2015 at 9:00 p.m. EST

Episode summary:

Myths tested:

Can a car be changed into a motorcycle?

and

Adam and Jamie attempt the mechanical metamorphosis of a car becoming a motorcycle and a bicycle becoming a boat.


I just hope that Jaime and Adam don't resort to their normal routine of just blowing up stuff at the end of the episode. I'd hate to see them take out their frustrations with mass shifting on an innocent Transformers figure.

Discuss on the boards what these crazy guys have in store for the Transformers.

Rescue Bots Rescan Salvage Found at US Retail
Posted by News Fetcher on January 29 '15 at 12:30 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Now some new information regarding Rescue Bots and a minor follow up from a story from yesterday! Yesterday, a new Rescue Bots Rescan Blurr was spotted, along with Rescan Optimus Prime, in Hong Kong. Which lead us to momentarily wonder what happened to Rescue Bots Salvage, as he had been previously shown to share a wave with the new Optimus. Well fear not, as 2005 Board member ShinHadouConvoy has found Salvage at his local Target in Dallas, TX. This Garbage truck bot will also join Hightide and Blurr among the new Rescue Bots figures. One remaining question remains is if Rescan Optimus is shipping with Salvage, just Blurr, or with both? This newsie is confident we'll find out the answer soon.

For now, click the title bar to discuss new Rescue bots and if they've been sighted in your area!

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Alfes2010 has posted up some in-hand images of Takara-Tomy's release of Generations Swerve for the Japanese market. Transformers Legends Swerve features a deeper shade of red in his deco to more closely match the colors of the Generation 1 original. His partner figure, meanwhile, has been completely redecoed to resemble the Generation 1 Micromaster Phaser, and now sports a white space shuttle deco rather than the US version's deep military blue deco.

TCC: Classics Seeker Mold to be retired
Posted by News Fetcher on January 29 '15 at 12:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The Transformers Collectors Club have been posting on Twitter, suggesting that the upcoming Collectors Club subscription figures Nacelle and Generation 2 Starscream will be the final two times that they make use of the mold:

From 2007-2015, we have provided 10 of the 31 versions of this now truly "classic" mold. Nacelle and G2 Starscream seem a fitting end.

When TFSS 3.0 G2 Starscream ships, that may well be the final use of this mold. We have no future plans to use the Classics mold again.


You'll note that, like when this was originally mooted at Botcon 2014 in California, there's a certain level of "not completely ruling it out" in the statements, but as it stands, it seems like with the 30th and 31st releases of the mold in the form of Nacelle and Generation 2 Starscream, the Collector's Club is retiring the use of the mold.

The Facebook page of third party group Planet X updated earlier today with brand new images of a colored sample of their Summanus figure (Fall of Cybertron Snarl). The post promises that Summanus is near to being released, but these new batch of images are not the final product and some changes may be made.

You can add this third party Dinobot to your collection shelves sometime this quarter as estimated by retailers.

Check it out after the jump.
