FansToys Stomp - G1 Animated Movie Alternate Head Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on May 11 '15 at 04:15 PM
By Matty from TFW2005:
In one of the more creative and completely awesome moves, third party group FansToys may have just won over some more fans today by revealing an alternated head for their recently revealed Stomp figure.

Many fans will recall the scene from the Generation 1 animated film where the Dinobots tackle the task of fighting against Devastator. Sludge unfortunately took a huge hit from the gestalt, suffering a cartoon case of eyes popping out of his head (imaged mirrored for reference). FansToys will include this moment for fans to relive in a cartoon styled head with the first run of their Stomp figure, giving fans a very creative second look for this Masterpiece inspired figure.

How cool is this?! Hit the discussion link to join in on the ongoing Stomp talk!

TFW's Combiner Wars Blades In-Hand Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on May 11 '15 at 01:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
It's time for more Protectobot love now with our third gallery from Combiner Wars deluxe wave 3, and this time, Protectobot Blades takes the spotlight! The rescue helicopter is a remolded Alpha Bravo from the Aerialbot team, and unlike Streetwise and First Aid, the changes here are limited to just a new head - but when the body is already a perfect fit for Blades, it's understandable.

Blades has a nice, slick, red deco to him, which makes him stand out among the otherwise uniformly white Protectobots. It's a really nice, rich shade, too. As he's pretty much a straight redeco of Alpha Bravo but for the new head, there's nothing shockingly new in terms of articulation - just one extremely nice looking toy.

Check out this sharp Protectobot for yourself in our gallery:

Posted by News Fetcher on May 11 '15 at 12:00 PM
By Calabask from TFW2005:
The Combiner Wars have indeed begun! At least in regards to accessories!

Hi-Res Pictures of Takara Legends LG13 Megatron
Posted by News Fetcher on May 11 '15 at 10:15 AM
By Calabask from TFW2005:
And boom! Finally after a long wait Amazon Japan has granted us our first hi-res pictures of Takara's much anticipated Transformers Legends LG13 Megatron, which was spotted by TFW2005 user Type-R. While Megatron is significantly less sparkly in this deco, he seems to be a little bit more uniform with much less red than Hasbro's take on the iconic Decepticon and overall, it seems to flow very well. Check out the pictures and discuss, after the jump!

TFW's Combiner Wars Streetwise In-Hand Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on May 10 '15 at 11:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We're pressing ahead with more new galleries of the Combiner Wars Deluxe Wave 3! Next up we are showcasing Streetwise, the police car member of the team. Streetwise is a remold of the Stunticons Brake-Neck and Dead End, who, much like First Aid, features substantial amounts of the toy reworked to give Streetwise a unique look all of his own.

Streetwise is a very stylish looking toy. Both robot and vehicle mode have a certain appeal to them, with the police cruiser mode being a sleek and powerful looking pursuit vehicle, and the robot mode adequately recreating the feel of the Generation 1 Streetwise. Special shout-out goes to Streetwise's weapon of choice, a triple-barreled shotgun, which is one of the most ridiculously cool weapons a Transformer has ever been armed with.

Streetwise is a slick, cool looking toy, who has some good personality in both his modes. Like his fellow Protectobots, he is well worth a look once he makes it to store shelves in your area. For now, check out the gallery to whet your appetites!

Alt-Modes Of Transformers: Robots In Disguise Megatronus, Prowl, Ironhide And Razorpaw Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on May 10 '15 at 06:15 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
After our Guide to Transformers: Robots In Disguise Mobile Game App Update, we have received requests from our members to unlock the new characters for the show. Here we are keeping the promise we made that we will.

We've previously showed you the Robot Modes of the upcoming characters for the show, and now it's time to reveal the Alt-Modes (or Vehicle Modes, if you prefer to call it that way).

With this News Post you will find in-game images of Transformers: Robots In Disguise Megatronus, Prowl, Ironhide and Razorpaw.

Megatronus turns into a tank very similar to Transformers: Prime Shockwave while Prowl retains his original G1 look. Ironhide's Alt-mode is a pick-up truck very much like the Michael Bay Transformers Live Action Movie vehicle mode and the newest Decepticon member Razorpaw turns into a buggy resembling Transformers: Age Of Extinction Rallyfighters.

You can checkout the images for the first time on the net, after the jump.

Teaser Silhouette Image of Takara Unite Warriors Constructicons
Posted by News Fetcher on May 10 '15 at 06:15 AM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
Small bit of news here - Takara designer Hisashi Yuki has once again taken to his Twitter, this time teasing the upcoming Unite Warriors Constructicons figures, which will of course be able to combine to form the mighty Devastator - who himself had been previously teased by Yuki. Presumably, these will all be relatively similar to their Hasbro counterparts, albeit with some possible paint application alterations.

Unfortunately, all we have for now is a silhouette image, but you can still make out some of the cool poses that they're in. Sound off with your thoughts after the break, and keep checking back for more updates!

TFW's Combiner Wars First Aid In-Hand Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on May 09 '15 at 10:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We're leading off now with the next of the Combiner Wars Protectobots - and the first of the four recently-released Wave 3 Deluxes! Deluxe Wave 3 brings in the four limbs of the Protectobot combiner, Defensor, and we proudly bring you this gallery of First Aid!

First Aid is a heavy remold of the Decepticon, Offroad. By "heavy remold" we mean "the basic toy is the same, but everything about it has been changed up". It's a really nice way to reuse the design but also give First Aid the distinct identity he deserves. Both modes are solid and look great - and there's lots of channels molded in the surface of the robot mode parts, reflecting Alex Milne's designs for First Aid in the More than Meets the Eye comic. As with Offroad, the poseability is excellently done, and the remolding on First Aid does little to hamper the range of movement that this mold presents.

Overall, First Aid is a really well done Autobot. There is a lot of personality in the design, and he will likely fit into any collection, either as a part of the Protectobots, or with the crew of the Lost Light. Check out our gallery to admire this one for yourselves:

Universities Conduct Research On Leadership Based On The Transformers Franchise
Posted by News Fetcher on May 09 '15 at 09:00 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
University of Binghamton and University of Nebraska-Lincoln are currently conducting research on Leadership with the leaders of Transformers Franchise as examples.

"We believe that Transformers presents three key lessons about leadership," said Seth Spain, an assistant professor of organizational behavior who studies "the dark side of work" at Binghamton University. These lessons are are: 1) flatter groups are more successful—sharing power is more valuable than trying to use power for the selfish benefit of oneself; 2) in general, leaders tend to be exceptional people; and finally, 3) intelligence (cognitive ability and skill) is a particularly important attribute for a leader to have. These messages align well with the current academic literature about what kinds of individuals emerge as leaders and what it takes to be effective as a leader.

"'The Transformers' characters and the stories told in the cartoon are a modern example of traditional folklore as a means of educating individuals about leadership. And, as examples go, one that is particularly relevant since the generation that watched them and were exposed to the toys are in their mid-30s to early-40s. They are the decision makers of today and the immediate future" says Peter Harms, assistant professor of management at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Transformers: Robots In Disguise Episode 15 & 16 Canadian Airdates

By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
MSN has revealed the Canadian Airdates for Transformers: Robots In Disguise Episode 15 & 16.

Episode tiles and descriptions aren't available right now but based on the airdates, we can predict that the remainder of the season may run without interruption. Fans speculated that the mid-season break for rest of the countries other than United States was due to the fact that US needs to catch up on the episodes aired by many countries many weeks before.

Based on Canadian airdates, we can assume that the rest of the world will follow suit.

Episode 15 - Airs June 20, 2015

Episode 16 - Airs June 27, 2015

The show will continue to air on the Canadian Teletoon channel.
