Fan-Built Combiner Name and Gender Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on April 23 '15 at 10:45 AM
By Sentinel from TFW2005:
THE FANS HAVE SPOKEN!!!

USA Today announced this morning the results of the Fan-Built Combiner Poll and many fans are going to be extremely pleased by the outcome:

Victorion, a new "Combiner" Transformer comprised of six different female Autobots and a result of another recent fan-built poll, is rolling out in the July comic Transformers: Combiner Hunters and debuting in toy form in the near future.

This should come as no surprise to anyone as the boards have been in an uproar these last few months over gender equality and equal representation in the franchise. Many fans have been extremely vocal in their preferences and have demanded the inclusion of more female characters in the Transformers universe and this is a monumental step in the right direction.

We all look forward to these new characters joining the likes of classics such as Menasor and Superion and what these new characters mean to the growth of the franchise.

Be sure to jump into the discussion about the importance of these characters over on our boards.

Transformers: Robots In Disguise Windblade Officially Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on April 23 '15 at 09:00 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
No, we have not accidentally reposted the news about Windblade making her comic book debut. This is the Robots In Disguise cartoon we are talking about.

A while back, eagle-eyed TFW2005 Board Members spotted a faint silhouette of Windblade (our then winner of Fan-Built Bot contest) as a concept sketch in the background of an interview regarding [then upcoming] Transformers: Robots In Disguise.

It so happens that USA Today has finally, officially revealed her presence in the cartoon.

In crafting Windblade on the comics page and debuting her in upcoming Transformers TV episodes, Scott focused on making the Autobot as real as possible even though she's a mechanized being. "Our female characters really do have faults," she says, "they have things that they aren't necessarily always good at and they have things they're trying to overcome, and that makes them real people with a real drive."

You can checkout the video clip from the show... after the jump.

Transformers: Legends Game Event - Best Of Episode - Assault On Iacon
Posted by News Fetcher on April 22 '15 at 09:30 PM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
The next DeNA Transformers: Legends event; Best Of Episode - Assault On Iacon, is now live. This is a rerun of the original Assault On Iacon Event.

"The war for Cybertron has just begun and Megatron seeks a quick victory—believing that he can simply take what he wants, Megatron stages a full-scale assault on the Autobot stronghold in the city of Iacon. Onslaught and Dead End are tasked to breach the city’s defenses and pave the way for total domination!

Autobots Warpath and Bumblebee are the first to rush to Iacon’s defense. Their odds don’t look good, but with all things in a Cybertronian war, there’s more to this battle than meets the eye…

Beneath Iacon’s glistening surface rests one of the last Titans. As the city quakes and churns, it dawns on the Decepticon forces that the city isn’t collapsing, it’s changing!

Rising from the debris, Metroplex—a city-sized behemoth—towers over the city, heeding the call of the last Prime. Metroplex will defend Iacon or die trying."

The Combiner Wars Protectobots have been released in Asia and are making their way into the collections of early adopters everywhere, including yours truly. Like the second wave and the wave 1 repacks, the third wave of Combiner Wars Deluxes come with pack-in comic books, and these comics have extended bios on the backs of them.

You can check out the bios attached to this post, to learn more about the Combiner Wars Protectobots. There's some great backstory in there - such as how Blades honed his fighting skills in the pits of Kaon; or how Rook is a recent graduate of the Cybertronian Military Academy, expert in tactics but still green in field operations; or how Streetwise was once a spotter for a two-man sniper team, and joined the Protectobots in out of weariness for violence, in search of a better way to settle conflicts.

In addition to images of the long bios, we also have attached to this post some images of the comic covers with their awesome artwork, and the Designer Desk sections from the backs of the comics, which include some cool insight into the design process including some ideas for how to equip your Rook with all four fist / foot parts - it seems that the "Hulk Hands" thing was intentional!

Check it all out attached to this post.

Possible Combiner Wars Vortex and Prowl Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on April 22 '15 at 03:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The latest wave of the Combiner Wars Deluxes (Wave 3, featuring the Protectobots) have begun to arrive in the hands of collectors, including yours truly. Two of the pack-in comics have strong hints hidden in them for upcoming releases - namely, a Combiner Wars Vortex and a possible Prowl.

What we have here are a possible remolding of First Aid as Prowl - lineart included in the designer desk section of the pack-in comic for First Aid shows First Aid's body with a distinctly different head. The head has the familiar crest of Prowl (or possibly Ratchet) on it - we're going with Prowl since he was listed in store computers a while back, and is a major player in Combiner Wars.

In the Blades comic, there is extensive lineart of the helicopter mode. However, on closer examination, you can see the nose of the helicopter is more angular, the arms of the robot on the sides are different, with no missiles and "tubing" details, suggesting new arms, and the weapon mounted beneath the helicopter is very different to Blades' twin gatlings which he inherited from Alpha Bravo. It's this that got our attention, because the single gun below the helicopter nose is very reminiscent of the one on Generation 1 Blades.

Evidently someone sneaky at Hasbro dropped these two advance looks in as a bonus to fans. Those who were collecting the earlier Generations around 2010-11 might remember Hasbro used to do a similar thing with the instructions. Check out the images showing the potential new Vortex and Prowl attached to this post.
