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."

Combiner Wars Deluxe Wave 3 (Protectobots) Extended Bios
Posted by News Fetcher on April 22 '15 at 03:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
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.

Transformers Masterpiece MP-06 Bluestreak Box Image & Official Images
Posted by News Fetcher on April 22 '15 at 02:45 PM
By Trailbreaker77 from TFW2005:
Hasbro Australia has added the Hasbro Masterpiece Bluestreak to their website, and with it, some official images of the release including a look at the box. The box is the now-standard "large" Hasbro boxes, which suggests Bluestreak will be packaged in robot mode and there may be some "dead space" around the edge of the figure.

Check out the images attached to this post.

(For those keeping track, Masterpiece Star Saber has also gone up for order. However, his box is the same as the Japanese release one, since he is being imported from that region for the Australian market.)

Michael Bay Hard At Work On Transformers 5
Posted by News Fetcher on April 21 '15 at 09:15 PM
By Shin Densetsu from TFW2005:
It was announced recently that Transformers 5 is planned for 2017. Many have been wondering who would be directing, as it was confirmed last year that Michael Bay would not be directing Transformers 5. However, things change and money talks.

Deadline has reported that Michael Bay is hard at work developing Transformers 5. NOTE: This could mean he is just producing the movie, not directing it; he did the same thing last year for the Ninja Turtles movie. So while it's easy to assume that Bay is directing Transformers 5(given the context of the article), it may be too early to know(it's not outright stated that he's the director). At CinemaCon, Paramount's Vice President Rob Moore let out what Bay was working on:

He also promised the theater owners that Michael Bay was hard at work developing a fifth Transformers movie since the first four have made an astounding $3.7 worldwide, music to the ears of this crowd which is ALL about box office. But first Bay is directing Thirteen Hours, a war movie set around a daring rescue mission in Benghazi that is already set for release on Martin Luther King weekend next January.

It was previously reported that Bay would direct 13 Hours instead of Transformers 5. Stay tuned to our Transformers News for further updates!

Transformers Windblade #2 Retailer Incentive Cover & Preview
Posted by News Fetcher on April 21 '15 at 08:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
IDW has released a preview of the new issue of Transformers: Windblade, hitting comic stores tomorrow. The preview does not feature any more pages of content compared to the iTunes preview we previously saw, but you can check out the recap and roll-call (which amusingly refers to Prowl's function as "Prowl", you know you're on to something when you can only be described in terms of yourself... )

That being said, we do also have the alternate covers to this issue to share with you, including a very nice retailer incentive cover showing Superion in flight. There's also the subscription variant cover, which shows Prowlastator bearing down on a wounded Defensor (who is shown in the Transformers #40 sub cover, the two combine to make a larger piece of art)

Check out the covers, and the preview, attached to this post.

Thanks to TFW2005 boards member osenator, we have our first look at some in-hand images of the Generations Cyber 11 Optimus Prime. For those that may have forgotten, these are 11 inch figures, done in the style of the Cyberverse figures from previous lines. Unfortunately it is confirmed that this Optimus Prime does not have knees.

Check out the images after the jump!

TFW's Combiner Wars Superion and Menasor Galleries

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We've shared with you the individuals in the Combiner Wars line - and today, we bring you the big guns! The Generations Combiner Wars line's first two waves bring us updates of two iconic Generation 1 combiners, Superion and Menasor - and they together form this latest gallery update.

The Combiner Wars gestalts are huge. They dwarf even current Leader class toys when they are fully assembled, and possess a full range of motion. It's not perfect - Menasor in particular struggles a bit with the weight of two extra robots up top, and both have issues balancing in some action poses - but it is amazing to see Hasbro step up and bring us something like this, when just a few years ago it looked like the best we would see would be the Power Core Combiners or the likes of Fall of Cybertron Bruticus. Both have some really nice details worked in, too.

Check out our galleries of this pair of awesome giants - and stay tuned for more gallery updates soon.

Don't forget our sister site Toyark is running a contest where you can win some cool Combiner Wars goodies for sharing your own Combiner Transformers photos on Instagram - find out more here!

Hasbro 2015 Q1 Earnings Conference Call - Transformers Saves The Day
Posted by News Fetcher on April 20 '15 at 10:30 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Hasbro held their 2015 Q1 Earnings Conference Call few hours ago and they have done well thanks to Transformers (from Boys Category) and My Little Pony (from Girls Category).

"Additionally, 2014 had two very significant motion pictures in the summer months, Transformers: Age of Extinction and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Both of these films benefited from shipments in the first half of last year. In 2015 there is a tremendous film slate we are supporting, headlined by The Avengers: Age of Ultron in theatres on May 1st and Star Wars: The Force Awakens on December 18th. These release dates are spread across a greater period of time versus last year’s concentrated timing of summer releases. There are also several other notable films this year, including Jurassic World on June 12th, Ant-Man on July 17th and our own Jem and the Holograms on October 23rd."

"Finally, revenues grew 74% in the Entertainment and Licensing segment. This strong performance was the result of growth in lifestyle licensing revenues for Hasbro Franchise Brands, notably MY LITTLE PONY and TRANSFORMERS, as well as the contribution of a multiyear digital streaming deal for Hasbro Studios programming."


During the Q&A session, Hasbro CEO thanked the Transformers Franchise and stated that Transformers saw the fastest growth in the last quarter.
