Colored Test Shot of BadCube War Dog (MP Warpath)
Posted by News Fetcher on March 10 '15 at 07:15 AM
By Sentinel from TFW2005:
I think it's safe to say that BadCube wants the fandom to look upon their War Dog "Warpath" as a figure that could quite possibly fit in with your Masterpiece collection. After posting comparison pics of both bot and alt modes with virtually every single Masterpiece Phase 2 Autobot, from Optimus Prime through Ultra Magnus, it's clear that War Dog does in-fact scale properly and that he has some hugely impressive mass shifting involved in his transformation.

Click through to see all of the comparison pics for yourself and then to judge and discuss this figure's worthiness to join your Masterpiece collection.

Available for pre-order with site sponsors BBTS, TFsource and Captured Prey

DX9 Toys Reveals Masterpiece Inspired Rodimus Prime
Posted by News Fetcher on March 10 '15 at 05:45 AM
By Matty from TFW2005:
The third party group DX9 Toys has just revealed prototype images of their next project they intend on tackling: Masterpiece inspired Rodimus Prime!

The new images show off this third party figure as what appears to be a self contained Rodimus Prime, i.e. it does not transform to be both Hot Rod and Rodimus. For comparison's sake, this figure was photographed next to the benchmark of the Masterpiece line, MP-10 Optimus Prime, and they are able to stand eye to eye looking great together! TFW2005 member unexpectedpanda was gracious enough to provide a digibash to show off what a possible color layout will look like. Finally the last image provided to us via TFW2005 sponsor Robot Kingdom, is of this third party Rodimus holding the Matrix of Leadership, which many of us will take note the hands seem to be an improvement over the less than popular MP-09 styled hands.

What do you think of the reveal? Hit the discussion link below to share some thoughts.

Hikari Japanese Vinyl Optimus Prime and Bumblebee (Battle Ready) Photo Shoot
Posted by News Fetcher on March 09 '15 at 01:46 PM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
Here's a little something different for our "gotta have it all" fans. As we all know, Transformers are popping up in tons of different form factors. Action figures are the primary thing for most of us, but there is some cool, and sometimes weird, stuff out there. The folks at Funko and Mindstyle combined to create a line of Hikari vinyl pieces, which are inspired by old school Sofubi Japanese vinyl figures. They a minimal in articulation, feature cartoonish proportions, and in this Hikari line, have high end hand painted details.

G1 Optimus Prime and Bumblebee (along with Skeletor and some others) are featured in the line, and have gotten multiple repaints already. We got our hands on the Entertainment Earth excluisve "Battle Ready" versions and have done up a quick photo shoot to show them off.

Read on to check out over 40 pics of them in "action"! If you dig them, you can pick them up here!

TFW's Robots in Disguise Grimlock In-Hand Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on March 09 '15 at 03:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We're back with another gallery of the Robots in Disguise Warrior class figures, belatedly finishing up our photos of wave 1! Here for your enjoyment is Grimlock!

Grimlock is a Dinobot, so he transforms into a tyrannosaur, just like the original Grimlock. The transformation is pretty neatly executed though the dino arms just sort of hang off the back. The way the design is done gives Grimlock some size and presence. In the show, he's a bruiser who thinks with his fists, and the toy gives him an appropriately bulky robot mode. That said, Grimlock lacks an accessory for some reason, and his articulation is a little restricted.

We then come on to the two biggest flaws on this figure. The lesser of the two is that this Grimlock is actually quite a small toy. I'm not normally a stickler for scale, but to have the character who is "the big guy" on the show come out smaller than Bumblebee or Strongarm is a little jarring. Second are the elbow joints. They use a weird pseudo-ratchet with a little plastic block pushing against teeth in the arm. The plastic on the forearms is thin, though, and if the block gets caught the wrong way on the teeth, it will tear right through the forearms. It's a really bad design choice, one I've personally experienced as you're actually looking at my second Grimlock in this gallery - my first broke within about a week of opening him.

Owing to all the flaws, I have a hard time recommending this one. It's a pity because it is a decent looking design, and would otherwise be okay, were it not just for those elbows. Check out the gallery to see this toy and decide if the looks make up for the noted flaws.

Masterpiece Exhaust In Box Images
Posted by News Fetcher on March 08 '15 at 12:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Via Cleon of Ozformers, we can share some good news in the form of a Yahoo Japan auction with in package images of Masterpiece MP-23 Exhaust.

Why is this good news? Well, given the deco of the toy is based on the Marlboro cigarettes deco of the Lancia Stratos, Philip Morris has issued Cease & Desist notices to US online retailers who would have carried the figure. There have been further reports of UK based retailers not carrying the figure either due to direct pressure or because Hasbro Asia would not export to them - all then coupled with reports that even some specialty stores in Hong Kong would not carry the figure. Naturally with these reports running rampant through the fandom, rumors and assumptions of a total cancellation from Takara-Tomy were being spoken of.

However, this auction on Yahoo Japan - showing the toy's box - suggests that the worst case scenario is not coming to pass, and Exhaust, the Destron Industrial Espionage agent, will see his release after all. He just might end up being a little hard for fans to get their hands on.

TFW2005 member Rookbartley attended the Children's Museum of Indianapolis Transformers Exhibition, and has shared with us some images of the exhibit. The Age of Extinction Optimus Prime truck greets guests at the front of the museum, and there is a display of 160 Transformers toys, including a Lucky Draw Energon Optimus Prime, Japanese exclusive pieces like Victory Saber, and even a previously unseen prototype of a Voyager class Starscream from an aborted line that never made it far off the drawing board in 2011. The wide selection of toys on show come from the collections of Pete Sinclair, Tony Preto and Karl Hartman.

Check out the images attached to this post. They are not an exhaustive showcase of the exhibit, so if you're in the neighborhood, be sure to drop by when the exhibition opens to the public.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Third party group Play With This Too have revealed a new addition to their lineup. Speaking with the Cybercast podcast, PWTT's Rik Alvarez showed off the concept of Wastelander, a planned redeco of the group's figure inspired by Pretender Grimlock in colors seemingly inspired by Beast Wars Dinobot. According to Rik, this will be one of the stretch goal figures from the group's Kickstarter.

Play With This Too is a group made up of former Hasbro staff, who are currently kickstarting their own line of action figures based loosely around the Pretenders and other classic 80s franchises like Inhumanoids and Centurions. Find out more here.

On the new update, more weapon pickups are added as well as new unlock codes from the TV Show. "From the TV Show"? Yep, we are as confused as you are.

EVEN MORE unlock code support, including for the TV Show

MORE Minor tweaks and tune-ups continuing to improve the App.
