By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Hisashi Yuki has shared some in-hand images of the Takara-Tomy release of the Generations Leader Jetfire on his Twitter account. This release, a part of the Japanese Transformers Legends line, lacks the shiny red chrome on the armor and boosters that the Hasbro release posesses, and also adds some very slight additional paint applications, some of which were planned for the Hasbro release but budgeted out.

Check out the images and see what you make of this new Autobot release.

Fanstoys Scoria / Dinobot Slag Toy Version
Posted by News Fetcher on December 13 '14 at 07:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Some new images have been released showing FansToys next Iron Dibot release. Revisiting their first Dinobot, the group will be doing a second version of their popular Scoria, who was based on Generation 1 Slag. This version will be based on the original toy, rather than the cartoon animation model, so will feature details such as a black red, red triceratops horns and an all-chrome gun.

There are two versions of the Scoria Toy Version coming in April 2014 - a mass retail one FT-04T, and one which is limited to 1000 pieces, FT-04X.

Our sponsor TFSource currently has both versions up for preorder:

FT-04T Scoria Toy Version
FT-04X Scoria Limited Edition Version

RUMOR - Transformers: Generations Combiner Wars Sunstreaker, Ironhide, Prowl, and Mirage Incoming?
Posted by News Fetcher on December 12 '14 at 04:00 PM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
Yet another toy rumor has just surfaced! TFW2005 member DecepticusPrime has reported finding listings for both some previously-rumored and also previously-unknown figures in Walmart's systems.

The brand new listings are for:

• Sunstreaker
• Ironhide
• Prowl
• Mirage

And as for listings we'd already heard of before:

• Deluxe Protectobots

It's currently unknown to us what these are - fans have been speculating that Mirage could be retooled from Deluxe Drag Strip, so is it possible these are retools of the already-existing Transformers: Generations Combiner Wars Deluxe limbs, to further fill out the Autobot ranks?

We'll just have to wait and see - but for now, you can check it out and discuss after the jump!

Generations Combiner Wars Arrive in the UK!
Posted by News Fetcher on December 12 '14 at 01:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
In a serverely unexpected turn of events (given how the Generations series has such problems getting to UK retail) we are proud to report that the new Generations Combiner Wars series has arrived in the UK! We have sightings from both TFW2005 member Robotochan in North Yorkshire and my very good friend, "Emperor" Shockscream, who spotted them in Derby!

So far, the sightings are only of the Voyager class figures - Silverbolt and Optimus Prime - though Shockscream reports that shelf space has been cleared for the Deluxes, though as yet no sightings on those.

As with the Robots in Disguise Warrior class toys, the place to check is Smyths Toy Superstores. Happy hunting, my UK brethren!

New images of Takara-Tomy's Legends Sky-Byte, Windblade, Chromia and Arcee
Posted by News Fetcher on December 12 '14 at 11:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Hisashi Yuki has been active on his Twitter account, and has shared a couple of new images. One of the new shots shows the trio of female Autobots - Windblade, Chromia and Arcee - in their decos for the Japanese Transformers Legends line. They all arrive at Japanese retail in February.

There is also a new image of the Transformers Legends Sky-Byte, showing the toy both in box and also loose in robot mode. Notably this Japanese release of Generations Sky-Byte is inheriting his US dub name of Sky-Byte, although the Japanese text still says Gelshark, so he's got the best of both worlds name-wise. He's arriving in Japan later this month.
