Transformers: Lost Age Interviews - Drift, The Franchise And More
Posted by News Fetcher on August 07 '14 at 07:45 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Transformers: Lost Age (Japanese movie release of Transformers: Age Of Extinction) is out now in Japan.

Japan Times has published an article today where director Michael Bay explains Autobot Drift and more.

"You put a medieval knight in front of the camera and it now looks (a bit) cliched, it looks outdated," Michael Bay says. "But the samurai look, of course we know it’s historical yet it looks so modern."

"You look at some of the older Japanese movies with samurai characters in them and you can visualize them as robotic," he says. "They look . . . streamlined, mechanical and practical."


The director also talked about the Franchise:

"I understand the need to draw an audience of kids and the global considerations, but I wanted to be involved with something that had a longer-lasting, even cerebral appeal. And I don’t want to be tied — artistically or in people’s minds — to ‘Transformers’ after ‘Transformers,’ " Bay says, perhaps alluding to the series’ planned fifth installment.

You can read the rest of the article (which is quite lengthy and other cast members chime their views) at Japan Times.

Larger Images of Takara Legends Jetfire & Sky-Byte
Posted by News Fetcher on August 07 '14 at 05:15 AM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
Thanks to Agabyss Twitter page, we have some larger images of the previously-reported Takara Legends Jetfire and Sky-Byte figures!

These photos confirm our speculation that Sky-Byte is done up in more metallic colors in addition to having a few extra paint apps, and Jetfire has indeed ditched the chrome in favor of flat red, and has also gained back the paint apps that we had seen on the Hasbro version originally back when it was first revealed.

Check 'em out after the break!

Mech Ideas Techno Toon Titans Bluster and Trench In-Hand Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on August 06 '14 at 12:31 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Mech Ideas have just released their Techno Toon Titans Bluster and Trench, aka Animated style Huffer and Pipes. The duo are based on designs created by Derrick J Wyatt for the Transformers Animated show, but never saw official toys from Hasbro. Mech Ideas picked up that baton and ran with making their own take on the Animated style, starting with the duo of Huffer and Pipes - a pair of figures that are not without their flaws, but do manage to capture a lot of the same spirit and style of the Transformers Animated designs.

We've got some in-hand shots of this two pack, which started out as some quick pics to share with you guys and quickly grew into a full gallery of both figures - check them out below!

Transformers Legends Japanese Release of Generations Jetfire and Sky-Byte
Posted by News Fetcher on August 06 '14 at 04:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Our sponsors Robot Kingdom have reported that the next two releases in Takara-Tomy's Transformers Legends line will be TG-06 Gelshark (aka Sky-Byte) and TG-07 Jetfire. The pair are Japanese market releases of the Generations Sky-Byte and Generations Leader class Jetfire, respectively, and they are due to be released in December.

While the initial photos are quite small, it seems as though both releases will sport altered paint jobs for their Japanese outings - Sky-Byte / Gelshark appears to have more silver on his sides in shark mode, and some metallic teal on part of the chest. Jetfire appears to have traded the red chrome on his weapons for regular flat red plastic.

Will you pick these up over their US versions? Sound off in the discussion thread linked below.

Q Transformers Mystery of Convoy Game
Posted by News Fetcher on August 05 '14 at 02:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Famitsu reports that there is a new Transformers Convoy no Nazo (or Mystery of Convoy) game in the works. It's being developed for iOS and Android, and features the Takara-Tomy Q Transformers Optimus Prime as the main playable character. The original Convoy no Nazo was a Famicom title in Japan released in 1986 known for its crushing difficulty.

There is also some video footage on Youtube by way of Walruslaw, which shows how the game has been reimagined as an "endless runner" i.e. your character is constantly running forwards. The game has also acquired more jumping sections and fewer enemies on screen at a time. The whole thing is controlled by two buttons - jump and transform. The original's music - and gigantic Decepticon symbol boss fight - are both present.

Check out the video clip, which is from the recent edition of TV Boy, below:

TakaraTomy Staff Interview - Hisashi Yuki on Masterpiece
Posted by News Fetcher on August 05 '14 at 08:45 AM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
The third (previously: Hironori Kobayashi, Shogo Hasui) translated TakaraTomy interview has rolled in, thanks once again to TFW2005 contributor SydneyY (and TFW2005 member RedTruck, who provided him with the Transformer Masterpiece Official Guide Book from which this interview originates) - this time with Takara Masterpiece designer Hisashi Yuki! Yuki is notable for being the designer of the upcoming and highly-anticipated Masterpiece Star Saber figure.

In this interview, Yuki elaborates on his history with the Masterpiece line, the Masterpiece poll, the future, and more.

Check it out after the jump!
