X2 Toys Rotor and Furrow (Cloudraker and Fastlane) Color Prototype Images
Posted by News Fetcher on November 27 '14 at 10:15 AM
By optimusfan from TFW2005:
Weibo.com member Toyszone posted new images of X2 Toys Rotor and Furrow figures. These are the first color prototype pictures we've seen of X2's take on the G1 "clones" Cloudraker and Fastlane. Along with their Decepticon counterparts Pounce and Wingspan, these figures feature the shockingly underused gimmick of nearly identical robots that transform into dissimilar alt-modes.

Cloud Rodimus and Shockwave In-hand Images
Posted by News Fetcher on November 27 '14 at 09:00 AM
By optimusfan from TFW2005:
In-hand images surfaced overnight of the just released Cloud Rodimus and Shockwave. These repaints of Generations Springer and Whirl (respectively) continue Takara's trend of odd and perhaps inspired use of existing molds in the Cloud line.

First up is Rodimus, arguably the most anticipated of the line to date. The figure is the closest rendition to the co-captain (not even a proper rank!) of More Than Meets The Eye's Lost Light fans have received to date.

As noted, Shockwave is a repaint of fellow empurata victim Whirl. The figure features Shockwave's classic purple deco and single yellow eye, and looks surprisingly convincing despite being a dramatically different take on the character.

Check out these and many more images in the thread below. Also, look for both of these figures to be hitting major retailers soon!

The event will begin in few hours.

"The DECEPTICONS attempt to get their hands on the plasma energy chamber, in order to further their goal of universal conquest. But HIGHBROW, CHROMEDOME, BRAINSTORM, and HARDHEAD recover the key and escape the depths of Cybertron in their overcharged ship. Sent spinning out of control, the ship ends up crash landing on Earth, leaving the AUTOBOTS badly in need of repair.

APEFACE and SKULLCRUNCHER, sent to retrieve the key so that the DECEPTICONS can use its power to destroy the Earth Defense Command and conquer the Earth, arrive shortly after the AUTOBOTS’ crash. Working together with some anti-Earth government forces, the duo prepare to ambush HIGHBROW and his allies.

Meanwhile, some agents of the Earth Defense Command have found the crashed Cybertonian ship and begin to render aid. Just as the AUTOBOTS are getting back on their feet, the DECEPTICONS and their partners begin their brutal assault.

Will HIGHBROW and the Earth Defense Command master their fighting abilities and prevail over the DECEPTICONS? Or will APEFACE and SKULLCRUNCHER crush the heads of their AUTOBOT foes and eliminate the E.D.F.? Find out on TRANSFORMERS: LEGENDS – “Last Stand of the Earth Defense Command”!"


APEFACE and SKULLCRUNCHER are available in the episode Space Bridge!

Transformers: Rising Mobile Game Soundtrack Info
Posted by News Fetcher on November 23 '14 at 01:15 PM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Bets testing for the Transformers: Rising (English Version) is now over. Shanghai based outsourcing sound studio GameAudioLab has revealed some info about the game's soundtrack and some samples. Hopefully they’ll release the entire game music album one day.

"Game Audio Lab worked on China’s #1 Transformers game: “Transformers: Rising”.

With stunning music – mix of orchestral and electronic elements – and entertaining futuristic sound effects, our main challenge was to create a unique sound experience for gamers while keeping consistency with the existing Transformers’ audio identity.

This challenge was accomplished within 3 months.

“Transformers: Rising” is now one of the most played and famous mobile game over China, Hong Kong and Taiwai, with monthly revenue of 10 million RMB (approximately 1.67 million US dollars), marking the peak of DeNA China’s revenue of this year."

TFW's Generations Brainstorm In-Hand Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on November 23 '14 at 12:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We've got another great new Generations toy gallery to share with you. This time out, we have a gallery of a Headmaster and the Lost Light's mad scientist in residence - Brainstorm!

Generations Brainstorm does a grand job of updating the chunky original Generation 1 Brainstorm and his boxy proportions with a more modern and decidedly less boxy appearance, based on the More than Meets the Eye comic. It gives Brainstorm a very striking silhouette - this toy looks extremely good in both modes!

Brainstorm is also fun to fiddle with. As with most modern toys, he lacks waist articulation, and his wrists do not rotate, but everything else is there - including ball-jointed head articulation, which is cleverly incorporated into the Headmaster gimmick. Arcana has limited articulation when he's not being Brainstorm's noggin, with just his arms and head (!) being poseable. One word of warning - watch the blue-green paint on Arcana's legs, it seems to chip very easily.

Overall, Brainstorm looks great and is fun to play with. He's one of the most dynamic looking Voyagers to come out what has been an excellent year for the size class, capturing the spirit of the character extremely well and generally being a good, fun toy. Be a smart robin and check out the gallery to see for yourself:

Q Transformers Movie and Generation 1 Series Wave 1 Official Images

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Via Autobase Aichi's Facebook feed, we've got some nice official images to share with you of the Takara-Tomy Q Transformers. On show here we have official images of the first waves of both the movie series and also the Generation 1 series.

Each of the figures transforms from a cutesified version of their robot modes into Choro Q versions of their vehicle modes. This is a fitting bit of parallelism, since over 30 years ago before Transformers got started, some of Takara's earlier transforming robot toys were Choro Q vehicles in their Micro Change line - which would eventually become the Generation 1 Minibots. That means the Generation 1 Bumblebee in this series has gone full circle!

The Generation 1 series on show here includes Rodimus, Prowl, Sideswipe and Bumblebee. The Movie series includes Optimus Prime, Crosshairs, Lockdown and Bumblebee. These first two waves of figures are due out next month, in December 2014.
