By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The nominations for the 13th annual Visual Effects Awards have been announced, and Transformers: Age of Extinction is among the nominations. Age of Extinction has been nominated for an award for "Outstanding Models in any Motion Media Project" for Lockdown's impressive spacecraft, the Knightship. It is a nomination well deserved, as the Knightship stood out in the movie as an impressive and utterly alien ship, both inside and out.

Rumor - Year of the Goat Soundwave to cost $190?
Posted by News Fetcher on January 13 '15 at 03:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Call this a rumor for now, but we have received a report from TFW2005 member Deceptigtar that the upcoming Year of the Goat special edition Soundwave will cost $190 when it is released at Toys R Us.

Yes, $190.

This information is based on Deceptigtar taking a scan of the UPC of a sample of the Year of the Goat Soundwave which a fellow collector already owned, and scanning it in a Toys R Us store.

If you like to collect the Chinese New Year special editions, you may wish to put aside a little extra Transformers money for this one - it sounds as though it will be a bank-breaker - or is this price a deal-breaker?

Q Transformers Episode 2 Released
Posted by News Fetcher on January 13 '15 at 03:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The second episode of the Q Transformers web animation has now been released. The five minute episode seems largely to be concerned with the "Mystery of Convoy" game, or rather, its new mobile game update that is being released to coincide with the new Q Transformers line.

Be advised, the video is in Japanese so until someone is kind enough to share a summary we have no idea what Lockdown is talking about...

Transformers Images from Super Festival 67
Posted by News Fetcher on January 13 '15 at 06:00 AM
By Matty from TFW2005:
Thanks to the Facebook page of Autobase Aichi, we have some new images from the Japanese hobby show Super Festival 67 that took place last week.

Of interest first are images of the upcoming Transformers Generations Vol.2 2014 fan voted figure Goshooter and the Million Publishing Shouki (Trainbot), EX Gohkin's Unicron head model display, and we also have an image of the Super Deformed Optimus Prime and Rodimus figures (which we saw earlier this year as well). And, if you've ever wanted to be Pretender Starscream, a cardboard cutout was on display to have pictures taken in.

Finally there were also some very cool original artwork and scripts from the Transformers: The Headmasters manga to see on display. Some close up shots are included in the attached images.

Check out all the images after the jump.

New Transformers Case Breakdowns/Listings - Generations Devastator & Robots in Disguise Products
Posted by News Fetcher on January 12 '15 at 04:30 PM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
Even more evidence mounts for Generations Devastator! The ever-informative TFW2005 boards member D-Drive has stopped by to advise us of some new Transformers product listings and case breakdowns. It's important to note that these are Canadian case amounts and can sometimes differ from the US case quantities. These cases include...

TRANSFORMERS RID DECEPTICON HUNTER STAR WARSWORD BLASTER (4) TRANSFORMERS RID NERF MEGA 1-STEP OPTIMUS PRIME (3)
TRANSFORMERS RID SUPER BUMBLEBEE (SFX)(2)
TRANSFORMERS RID MINICONS DEPLOYERS (2)
TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS DEVASTATOR (2)
TRANSFORMERS RID MASKS ASST (6)
TRANSFORMERS RID BUMBLEBEE BLASTER (4)
TRANSFORMERS RID MINICONS (8)

Also of note are what appear to be Robots in Disguise role-play items and gimmick figures, but interestingly, there are also some listings for Mini-Cons, which we had learned about recently via the show itself. Lastly, as D-Drive himself pointed out, Devastator will come in two per case like Generations Metroplex, perhaps lending even more credence towards the speculation that Devastator could indeed be a Titan class figure/set.

Unfortunately, we still have no pictures of these items, but keep it tuned to TFW as we bring you news leading up to Toy Fair, where all these things will hopefully be fully unveiled.

MP-22 Masterpiece Ultra Magnus High Res Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on January 12 '15 at 11:30 AM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
MP-22 Ultra Magnus dropped late last year and we here at TFW2005 have a full high res gallery of him ready for you today! He is a massive figure, standing tall among his Masterpiece brothers. He doesn't transform like previous versions, instead keeping the cab and trailer connected. In each mode though, he looks like he should, a beefed up hybrid of the G1 toy and cartoon. We'll leave the reviews and feedback to the fans.

This sponsored gallery is coming courtesy of site sponsor TFSource, so we'd like to thank them for providing the figure to shoot! You can grab MP-22 Ultra Magnus from them right now; they are in stock and shipping!



For some supah cleah high res images though, check out our full gallery here: TFW2005's MP-22 Ultra Magnus High Resolution Gallery.

We've attached some key shots after the break, read on to check em and discuss on the forums!

By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
2005 Boards member Jetbolt is bringing us the translation of Episode 14 of Transformers: Robots In Disguise. This episode is the start of the 2nd half of the first season and it seems as though the focus may shift to Optimus Prime and Cybertron.

Rescue Bots Season 2 Episode Chief Woodrow to Air January 18 and January 21 2015
Posted by News Fetcher on January 11 '15 at 02:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Transformers Rescue Bots Season 2 episode "Chief Woodrow" is set to air on 18 January, with a rerun on 21 January. This episode, like The Riders of Midwinter, was skipped over in the original airing of the second season of the show, but unlike that episode which was shown alongside season 3, this episode is being inserted into reruns of season 2.

Via Zap2it, we have learned that there will be an episode airing on the 18th and repeating on the 21st - and via LocateTV, we can confirm that the repeat on the 21st (and therefore the original airing from the 18th) will be the skipped episode.

According to LocateTV, the episode will feature Chief Burns' oddball brother, Woodrow, taking up the reins while his brother is out of town.

Platinum Edition Generation 1 Reissue Insecticons Out in the US
Posted by News Fetcher on January 11 '15 at 01:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
TFW2005 member Autobot_82 has let us know that the Platinum Edition reissue set of the Generation 1 Insecticons has arrived at US retail at a Kmart in Commerce, CA. The set rereleases the three original Insecticons, Shrapnel, Bombshell and Kickback in a giftbox with some excellent artwork on the front.

The bad news though is that K-Mart is selling these at $79.99 - which is a little more than double what the trio went for the last time they were reissued in 2009. Granted, costs have also risen since then, but probably not to double that baseline.

Happy hunting, one and all!

TFW's Combiner Wars Firefly In-Hand Gallery

Here is our next Combiner Wars gallery, to round off our coverage of the first wave of the Deluxes! Combiner Wars Firefly is the modern reimagination of Fireflight, a flashy stunt plane who skews very close to the original in all the right ways.

Firefly is a great little figure. The colors are spot on to the original and look as sharp and dynamic now as they did back then. As with Skydive, the poseability is excellent - in fact, the transformation scheme is shared between both Aerialbots with a few minor changes. Firefly's weapon is a flamethrower, and a nicely detailed one at that, with molded details showing the gas tank and the lighter, among other details.

Of the first assortment of Combiner Wars deluxes, Firefly is quite possibly the best. He's a sharp looking and fun figure, with a really nice deco which makes him stand out. You might say we've saved the best of this assortment for last! Check out the gallery at the link below and see what you think:

Rumor - New Pricing Information for Generations Devastator & Platinum Insecticons
Posted by News Fetcher on January 10 '15 at 04:00 PM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
TFW2005 boards member novabeam10 has come to us this evening with new pricing information for some possible upcoming Transformers products. Thanks to his friend working at a Canadian Toys 'R' Us, we've learned from their listings that the "Transformers Generations Devastator" has a list price of $179.99 (Canadian) with the SKU 198274. In addition, a listing was also uncovered for the Insecticons as a Platinum set for $99.99.

With the previous rumors that we've heard, we can probably work out what the are for ourselves. The Devastator is most likely the Combiner Wars Devastator, with the hefty pricetag lending more credence towards it indeed being Titan class. As for the Insecticons, it is almost certainly the reissue set we had seen before. Unfortunately though, we have no news just yet of the additional Conehead set that accompanied that rumor.

Discuss this new info on the boards!
