By Sol Fury from TFW2005:

The channel is being billed as a place to watch cult classic shows and movies, plus original specials.

Play With This Too Desolator (Skullgrin) Prototype Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on February 05 '15 at 11:00 AM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
After many months of teasing fans with very cool artwork and design sheets for all that they intend to offer, Play With This Too have revealed their first prototype! Desolator, as revealed on their Facebook page, will be a six inch action figure based on Generation 1 Skullgrin. While the figure does not open up like a Pretender, the figure will come with a tech drone named D-Mon. D-Mon will separate into weapons for Desolator to use. The Desolator figure will be able to swap limbs and parts with future Play With This Too releases.

From the album on their Facebook:
These are 3D printed prototypes and do not accurately represent what the final products will look like. Some joints are a little to tight while some are little to loose. What is not being shown are the chains which will attach to the shoulders and chest. Those will be actual chains which will produced when the figures goes into production.

Also, the left thigh armor for Desolataur did not print, but it will be included with the final figure.


Play With This Too will be launching a Kickstarter Campaign this month for this line of figures. Check out all the images after the break!

Transformers: Legends Game Event - Raiding Party
Posted by News Fetcher on February 04 '15 at 11:45 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Pre-Registration for the next DeNA Transformers: Legends Team Event; Raiding Party is now live.

Due to some technical difficulties, the registration was unavailable for nearly a day.

Event Description:

Returning from a successful charity event, BLASTER, WINDCHARGER, and some of the other AUTOBOTS receive a distress signal from a nearby military base. The distress signal indicates that DECEPTICONS are involved, so the AUTOBOTS change course and head straight there.

Upon arrival, they find the base under attack from BLITZWING and the DECEPTICONS, who are searching for the highly volatile MacGuffin Generator. While one group destroys the base and drives off any human opposition, STRAXUS searches through the buildings, turning each one that does not contain the Generator to rubble.

BLASTER leads the charge, throwing the DECEPTICONS into disarray. But before long, BLITZWING rallies his allies, and the fight comes to a stalemate. While the two sides continue the battle, WINDCHARGER learns the location of the generator just as RUCKUS blasts the doors off of the building that houses it.

Will BLASTER and the AUTOBOTS be able to stop BLITZWING and the DECEPTICONS from stealing the MacGuffin Generator? What will happen if the DECEPTICONS activate the highly volatile device? Find out on TRANSFORMERS Legends - “Raiding Party”!

By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Japanese Translator; GOKTIMUS PRIME who worked for Hasbro to write the English bio of MP-24 Star Saber reveals that the English version of the bio will be based on the IDW Transformers Universe.

Speaking to the fans from a Facebook Page titled Talk Transformers he revealed the following with the fans of the franchise:

"I can now reveal that MP Star Sabre was the third translation/adaptation job that I was doing for Hasbro. However, the English bio is completely different and unrelated to the Japanese one. The Japanese bio is based on Star Sabre's appearance in Transformers Victory, where he was -- character-wise -- basically a clone of Optimus Prime (re: flawless heroic saviour archetype). The English bio is based on IDW Star Sabre, where Star Sabre is an incredibly dark character.
In the Japanese booklet, Star Sabre's function is "Autobot Supreme Commander." For the Hasbro version, his function has been changed to 'Duly Appointed Enforcer of the Tyrest Accord' (at times abbreviated to 'Tyrest Accord Enforcer' or just "Autobot Enforcer" in different parts of the booklet). Japanese G1 tech specs don't have mottos, and I only had access to the booklet and not the tech specs card (so I have no idea if TakaraTOMY have newly created a motto for him), but the motto I created for the Hasbro version is "Quidquid facio sancitur divinitus.", which is Latin for "Everything I do is divinely sanctioned." -- and yes, I have written the motto in both Latin and English (as I did for Stinger ).
More reveals to come. "
