Transformers Cloud Omnibus Comic
Posted by News Fetcher on March 07 '15 at 02:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
E-Hobby have added a listing to their website for a Transformers Cloud omnibus comic. The comic, according to the listing, is a collection of stories that were originally published on the web - so it sounds as though it is a collection of the various Cloud story chapters.

According to the listing the omnibus is 24 pages long, and will be offered as a bonus with the purchase of the Transformers Cloud toys from 24 March 2015. Those who preordered Hellwarp will also be getting a complimentary copy on his release.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Online retailers Toywiz and Amazon have posted some new official Hasbro images including in-package images of the Legion class Fixit and Underbite figures.

Kabaya Transformers D Collection
Posted by News Fetcher on March 04 '15 at 01:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Via Amiami we have word of an upcoming Kabaya Transformers release. Named "D Collection", these are a set of three PVC (or similar material, we'd wager) figures. The three characters are Optimus Prime, Megatron and Starscream, each being poseable at the head, waist, and shoulders, and featuring a few different accessories. The figures also have chase edition "clear" versions. Check out a few images of these new Kabaya releases after the break.

Combiner Wars Deluxe Wave 2 pack in comics feature extended bios
Posted by News Fetcher on March 04 '15 at 12:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Via TFW2005 member Starscream Gaga we can reveal that the pack-in comics for Combiner Wars Deluxe Wave 2 feature extended character bios on the backs of the comics. The bios are written in the style of the old Marvel or Dreamwave More than Meets the Eye bios, and presented as psych reports in universe, with the Decepticon ones being written by Soundwave, and the Autobot ones by the ubiquitous Rung!

The extended bios flesh out the characters a lot more in the way that only a full on who's who profile can. Fans of Wildrider might be sad to note though that the Offroad bio directly mentions how Offroad has replaced a "fallen Stunticon" as a member of the Menasor combiner group - suggesting in the universe created by the toy fiction that Wildrider is no more. The fact he shares Wildrider's colors is also noted, in a cool touch - you can really see that some attention was put into these bios. Check them out after the break, with thanks to Starscream Gaga for sharing them with us.

Platinum Edition G1 Dinobots Set, New Masterpiece, Generations And More Info From Australia Toy Fair
Posted by News Fetcher on March 04 '15 at 05:00 AM
By Shin Densetsu from TFW2005:
Griffin-of-oz has posted his initial report from Australia Toy Fair 2015 over at OzFormers. More information is coming later but here's Griffin's initial report:

Photos later tonight, and the full report.... but some teaser info to get you interested and to send the global fansites into meltdown.

Generations Devastator on display with my Gen1 Devastator - BigW already signed up for June/July.

More JP Masterpiece coming this year - Gold bumblebee July, Convoy reissue, Tracks (not MP25), MP25 in Sept (I can't reveal name before TakaraTomy), and two new "sports cars" for OCT & NOV.

Platinum edition - Myer will have Seeker pack and YOTG pair... while ToysRUs will have Insecticon pack, Perceptor/Blaster, Trypticon, aaaaand.... Dinobots. YES, Gen1 Dinobots multipack which I hope is all five.

JP Stinger still for this month, only at TRU though.

GEN Slingshot & Wildrider don't exist (yet) for Hasbro Generations, but might next year as Combiners are going to be at least two years.

Leader Starscream for wave 4.

Hasbro MP Starscream is the second (MP11) version because fans wanted it.
Hasbro MP Bluestreak will be in July.

Toyworld's cheaper prices were indeed just introductory prices from Hasbro.

Loyal Subjects w3 should be out in the next month.

That's most of it. More later, probably after midnight though.

Go nuts...


Meltdown commence! Stay tuned for more!

Ultimetal Optimus Prime In-Hand Review
Posted by News Fetcher on March 03 '15 at 05:45 PM
By Sentinel from TFW2005:
Thanks to TFW board member Kuma Style, we have the first in-hand and extraordinarily detailed review of the oft delayed but highly anticipated figure, Art Storm Ultimetal Optimus Prime. Collectors have been extremely patient waiting to add this piece to their collections, but according to Kuma Style the wait more than paid off.

Standing an impressive 17 inches tall and weighing in at almost 30 lbs, this figure is at first glance awe-inspiring. Full of diecast and sporting an incredible paint job, this figure is hugely (pun intended) impressive. What really sets this figure apart from previous incarnations of the famed Autobot leader is the removable armor over a highly-detailed and articulated skeleton. This figure is unique in that it allows collectors to remove parts of the armor to show the inner workings of Optimus, including functioning pistons in the wrists, ankles and ribs.

Additionally, the sheer mass of this figure dictates that special measures be taken into consideration with its engineering, so Art Storm added locking joints to support the dynamic posing that most collectors would be almost compelled to attempt with such an impressive and imposing figure. Lastly, the designers added lights and sound effects to truly bring this figure to life. Prime has light-up eyes, running lights and Matrix chamber, plus a moving mouthpiece that moves in tandem with a number of phrases spoken by Peter Cullen.

This is a massive and expensive addition to the world of Transformers collectibles and without a doubt a centerpiece of any collection.

Masterpiece Star Saber In-Hand
Posted by News Fetcher on March 03 '15 at 03:01 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The appointed hour draws near when Masterpiece Star Saber will be released in Japan - and via Oldcasper on Weibo and fengqiaoken on ACtoys, we have a look at the Cybertron 5th Commander in-hand.

Hailing from the 1989 show, Transformers Victory, Star Saber was one of a series of Japan-only Cybertron faction commanders. Much like his predecessor Ginrai / Powermaster Optimus Prime, he consists of a small pilot figure, a Brainmaster, which merges with a smaller jet vehicle to form a robot, which then in turn merges with the larger booster engine to form the full-scale Star Saber.

Masterpiece Star Saber is looking to be every bit the large-scale release to celebrate the latter years of the Japanese Generation 1 series. It is an amazing looking release which seems to be set to impress Masterpiece Transformers fans everywhere. Check out the new images attached to this post.

Transformers #39 retailer incentive cover
Posted by News Fetcher on March 03 '15 at 02:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
You may recall from one of our earlier posts that the retailer incentive covers for Transformers #39 and Windblade #1 were something a bit special from IDW - each retailer participating in the incentive next month gets a cover showing their store either being protected by Superion (Transformers #39) or destroyed by Devastator (Windblade #1). We're told that in the end, six stores got in on this promotion.

Via Giant Robot Comics on Twitter, we have a look at one of the finished covers - this is the Transformers #39 cover. Decepticons in Dartmouth, Canada beware, because Giant Robot Comics is under the protection of Superion! Check it out, and a big thanks to TFW2005 member D-Drive for bringing this one to our attention.

The crew of the Lost Light's time-traveling adventure culminates at a point where you could say it all began - and the future is in the hands of one who "in response to a crisis of morale precipitated by his own woeful captaincy, introduced a reward system based on his own face" (Autobot Megatron is awesome!)

Check out the full preview attached to this post.

Along with IDW's Transformers comic previews this week we had a look at the retailer incentive covers to Transformers #38 and More than Meets the Eye #38. The pair of covers feature Optimus Prime and Megatron respectively, and are done in a simple yet striking style (we're thinking of some of the Acid Free prints by Tom Whalen for a similar style).

Check them out, and also be sure to check out the previews for this week's comics - it's a double bill of More than Meets the Eye and the title formerly known as Robots in Disguise!

TFW's Robots in Disguise Bumblebee In-Hand Gallery

Carrying on our series of Robots in Disguise galleries, today we're highlighting the main character of the new show, the one and only Bumblebee! Robots in Disguise Bumblebee remains a muscle car as he has been of late, but has traded arm cannons for a suitably huge greatsword.

Robots in Disguise Bumblebee is very much a middling release in the line. On the positives, he's got a good range of movement including a waist swivel, and can strike some good action poses with that sword of his, including a few with a two-handed grip. On the less great front, the car roof on the back of the legs gets in the way on some poses, and the feet lack substantial heels, so some poses are really hard to maintain. The gears on the doors are also a cause for concern - the teeth on mine have already worn down in paces after only a few transformations.

Overall, Bumblebee is a release with personality and poseability, but he is not without flaws by any means. Check out his gallery to see what you think of the leading Autobot in the new show, Robots in Disguise!
