Maketoys RM-01 Cupola (Chromedome) and Guardia (Defensor) Test Shots
Posted by News Fetcher on April 30 '15 at 07:00 AM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
The Thai Energon group on Facebook has shared some images from the Thailand Toy Expo 2015. On hand in test shot form are two upcoming 3rd party offerings from 3rd party group, Maketoys. First up on hand is Guardia, aka Maketoys' version of G1 Defensor. Shown here in various colors of test plastic, the project seems far along and hopefully a window for preorders will open up soon. Also on hand is RM-01 Cupola, which will be Maketoys' first opening salvo into the world of unofficial Masterpiece Transformers. Cupola is a homage to G1 Headmaster Chromedome and he's looking fantastic thus far.

You can check out the pictures and discuss Guardia in the ongoing discussion thread here. Or, to follow along with the new images of Cupola, hit the title bar.

RID App Hints at Possible New Toys
Posted by News Fetcher on April 30 '15 at 05:00 AM
By Calabask from TFW2005:
Ho boy! On top of the pictures we found in our Previous Story it would seem that there was even more hidden within the RID App than previously thought and the good people at Autobase Aichi managed to find! While we don't know if all of these will make it to the shelves, if they are planned toys at all, or just something fun for the app, but some may be given their classifications.. In addition it seems as though they may have found the Alt Mode to Megatronus! Check out the pictures and the listings after the jump!

iGear's Mini Warriors - Cancelled Design Renders and Bios
Posted by News Fetcher on April 29 '15 at 04:45 PM
By Matty from TFW2005:
Thanks to TFW2005 boards member CZ Hazard, we have a glimpse inside the canceled line of iGear figures dubbed Mini Warriors. CZ Hazard was nice enough to share via his blog The Accursed Love Of Possessing the design renders of 12 canceled figures plus the bios for each character that he worked on.

Also of note, it looks like iGear may be taking a break from the unofficial world of transforming robots. Although not confirmed directly through iGear, CZ Hazard passed along the information that the company is reevaluating things, but never say never for a possible return.

Check out the entirety of the cancelled line after the break!

Possible Botcon 2015 Roadbuster Redeco
Posted by News Fetcher on April 29 '15 at 12:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Via Lost-Zzl on Weibo, we have a look at a previously unseen redeco of the Transformers Generations Roadbuster toy. Sporting a green deco with brown camo and white weapons, this deco is something of an oddity - however, there is a Generation 2 style "Autobots" tampograph on the back of the vehicle / robot mode leg, which suggests this is more than a mere custom. Additionally, the user also has in-hand images of other, known upcoming releases from the TCC, so it stands to reason this too is a leak from the collectors club, or more likely, the convention.

Our money is that this is one of the Botcon 2015 at-show souvenir figures. The deco and the use of the Generation 2 Autobots logo - plus the placement of the white in robot mode - is a match for the unreleased Generation 2 toy, General Optimus Prime - which would make sense, given that there is a Megatron in the 2015 convention boxed set.

Check out the images after the break.

A Few Sample Pics of the Transformers Cloud Hellwarp Comic
Posted by News Fetcher on April 29 '15 at 09:45 AM
By Joe Moore from TFW2005:
This is a pretty cool preview. Here's a few pics from the comic included with Transformers Cloud Hellwarp. We got to see in-hand Hellwarp pics just over a month ago, and now we can stare at a few cool art pieces from the comic he comes with. In the comic, they have Generations Jhiaxus (though it's noted he is not available in Japan) and Cloud Megatron in shrouds reminiscent of Dark of the Moon Megatron.

Google translate wasn't too helpful with the post text, so if you want to do a better job translating, feel free and I'll share it with the readers of TFW2005 here. The pics come courtesy of Mangod. Read on to check them out.

Report: 3rd Party Transformers Products Banned from BotCon 2015
Posted by News Fetcher on April 29 '15 at 07:15 AM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
Yesterday, we reported on the BotCon 2015 brochure going online. However, there was a very important piece of information contained within that may have been missed by some readers.

This morning, TFW2005 boards veteran Shin-Gouki brought to our attention the following quote from within the brochure:

"Exhibitor’s product content must be at least 50% Transformers related. This means robots, action figures, comics, sci-fi or related products. General toys or dolls are not allowed. Exhibitors must collect the 8% Illinois sales tax or current rate in effect at the time of the show. Exhibitors must file and pay using the forms provided at the show one week after the conclusion of the event. Please do not bring products that violate Hasbro owned intellectual property"


This is further backed up by two other relevant quotes from TFW2005 boards member Autobot City Comics 2008, who had attended JoeCon 2015 this year, where a vendor he was working was was told to take his 3rd party Transformers items down:

"Yes they are they did it to the vendor I was working with at Joecon he had a little 3rd party transformers and was told by Pete to take it down. We asked if it was going to be In forced at Botcon and he said yes but not as 3rd party but as IP infringement"

Furthermore, Fun Publications employee Pete Sinclair supplied some other pertinent quotes further clarifying the situation recently on The Allspark:

Jon and Karl Hartman Sell Their Collection at BotCon 2015
Posted by News Fetcher on April 29 '15 at 02:30 AM
By Superquad7 from TFW2005:
Botcon news has been the rave as of late, and we have a very interesting bit of news to share with you: Karl Hartman stopped by and shared some news that he and his brother Jon are set to sell "the second half" of their collection at Botcon 2015. Why is this significant? Karl and Jon Hartman are two of the original founders of the Botcon convention itself. Also, their collection is quite extensive, including some very coveted pieces. The first half of their collection sale came at Botcon 2006, where they even sold Peter Cullen a sealed G1 Optimus Prime figure as a gift for his granddaughter!

Karl Hartman had this to say regarding their upcoming sale:
Quote:
"Hi folks.

With BotCon being relatively close to us, we're taking advantage, and bringing the "second half" of our old collection to sell at BotCon. Roughly, this will cover the years of 1998-2006. It'll be close to 1000 pieces, I believe. Priced to move.

I'll be updating with more details soon, plus a general list of series that we'll be bringing, including any rarities. As always, looking forward to seeing lots of old friends one more (last?) time.

See you all soon,
Karl (and Jon)"
This reporting News Staff member still hears discussions of their legendary sale from 2006, and this second installment could be something equally as exciting! Many thanks to Karl for stopping by our forums to give us a head's up here! We here at TFW2005.COM wish the Hartmans all of the very best with their collection sale, and we hope that all who attend Botcon 2015 have a great time!

Thanks to TFW2005 boards member Autovolt 127, we have somewhat of a teaser for the upcoming IDW comic book Robots In Disguise, based on the new cartoon show airing on Cartoon Network. In this issue, which appears to be the free issue available at your comic shop this Saturday for Free Comic Book Day, there is a reveal of two characters returning to action: Bulkhead and Ultra Magnus.

We'll have to wait until Saturday to see more, so be sure to pick up IDW's RID comic this Saturday to see more previews for the upcoming ongoing title.

On Transformers: Robots In Disguise animated series, we did not get a good look at Decepticon Filch in her Robot Mode. We only saw a silhouette.

Few days ago, thanks to a Tiny Titan in hand images we did get a good look at her robot mode. But today, Hasbro has posted her best look so far.

"There’s a new Decepticon preying on Crown City, and it’s up to Team Bumblebee to put an end to her pickpocketing. Watch the newest episode of Robots in Disguise this Saturday at 6:30 AM EST on Cartoon Network."

Check it out, after the jump.

TFW's Combiner Wars Viper In-Hand Gallery

Our next gallery from the Combiner Wars is Decepticon Viper! Viper is a redecoed version of Powerglide with a new head. Intended as an army builder, he is something very cool - a crossover with G.I. Joe, with the plane being based on the Cobra Rattler and the robot mode's new head taking inspiration from the Rattler pilot Wild Weasel, which is also what the Z06 on the wing refers to. To top it all off, the robot chest and the other wing feature a modified Cobra logo, based on the Cobra / Decepticons logo from the Devil's Due G.I. Joe / Transformers crossover series.

Viper's deco is excellently done, and the new head sets him apart from Powerglide. Like Powerglide, he has a simple but effective transformation that leaves him with side-to-side head movement, but as with Powerglide, he's got no biceps swivels. Viper transforms into a weapon to be wielded by other, larger, Transformers - a call-out on the packaging places him as the sidearm of Cyclonus' gestalt form, Galvatronus, but any Transformer with a 5mm peg socket can wield him. Like Powerglide, Viper has no accessories, so for some of these photos I gave him the gun that came with the Generations Legends Optimus Prime.

Overall, Viper is a cool little redeco. He looks fantastic and the G.I. Joe crossover is an extra bonus. Well worth checking out when he hits stores - until then, live vicariously through our gallery!
