Unused Action Master Designs - Predaking on a Motorbike and more!
Posted by News Fetcher on February 18 '15 at 12:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Long time friend of TFW The Spacebridge has shared something exceptionally cool on his Facebook page. Many of us are aware that the Action Masters assortment were among the very last releases that came out in the Transformers line in the US - and a few final releases made it to Europe in 1991.

But, as with any line cut short, designs were made that would never see the light of day. That is where The Spacebridge's post comes in. He has shared eight pieces of artwork showing some Action Masters that never made it off the drawing board - and some are rather cool.

These bits of art show Action Master versions of Ultra Magnus - who would have come with a trailer in a similar size class to the Optimus Prime one, which could split into two separate battle vehicles. Combiners Bruticus, Superion, and Predaking all were concepted, with Superion and Predaking having motorbikes that turned into gunnery stations, much like the Prowl that was released in 1990. A Perceptor was also concepted, but like Bruticus there is no hinting at what he might have came with. All the figures are shown with additional armor / weapon parts in a second robot sketch, which suggests this would have been the overall gimmick of these Action Masters, after the transforming partners of the initial releases and armor of the European ones.

Check out the images and give some major thanks to The Spacebridge for sharing all of this with the fandom at large!

Fan Built Combiner Twitter Special Power Poll
Posted by News Fetcher on February 18 '15 at 12:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Hasbro has partnered with Toys R Us to hold a round of voting via Twitter to decide the special powers of the Fan-Built Combiner. The powers which are being offered are Teleportation, Earthquake, or Gravity Control. To vote, you simply tweet @ToysRUs before the end of February with the hashtag of the power which you would like the Fan-Built Combiner to have access to.

While this is probably a purely cosmetic thing, and it will probably at most will only affect the bio and the comics, it does raise the interesting possibility of having a Combiner with some truly unique abilities.

Get on Twitter and have your say!

Hisashi Yuki has posted an in-hand image of the Transfomers Adventure version of Robots in Disguise Strongarm. Adventure Strongarm is similar to her US release, but now features show-accurate white around her "ears", and accurate white striping on her chest. Both of these elements are uniformly blue on the US version.

Check out the images, along with a look at Strongarm hanging out with Takara-Tomy's female Autobots!

Powermaster Optimus Prime Original Design Sketch
Posted by News Fetcher on February 17 '15 at 08:30 PM
By Matty from TFW2005:
Something fun to close out your day with is a bit of Generation 1 trivia to share with you, courtesy of The Spacebridge Facebook page. In this post we get to see a rare look at a Powermaster Optimus Prime design sketch, which shows off the planned Headmaster gimmick that was later dropped.

Here's the full blurb with some great information about the Powermaster Optimus Prime figure and its originally planned gimmicks:

Trivia Tuesday! - Did you know that Powermaster Optimus Prime was originally planned to be a POWERMASTER + HEADMASTER + TARGETMASTER! The Headmaster part was dropped late on, this explains why the large head is removable and why the trailer has a compartment in the back with a ramp. Originally "Roller" would have become Optimus's head and be stored in the back of the trailer when in vehicle mode. Here are some rare design pictures showing the Headmaster. No pictures of his Targetmaster gun have been found (yet), Hasbro staff who remember working on this recall two identical transforming guns were planned. The first patent for this toy still shows the Headmaster. I'm going to do a big update this week on G1 toy concept art, stay tuned!

Pretty cool? Feel free to share your thoughts by clicking the discussion link below!

Happy Birthday, Michael Bay!
Posted by News Fetcher on February 17 '15 at 09:15 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
The maestro of mayhem (or should we say Bayhem) is turning 50 years old today. Director Michael Bay is known to the Transformers fans as the director who introduced the Transformers Franchise to the modern audience.

Michael Bay worked for the four Transformers movies for over 10 years. Mr. Bay was just 40 years old when he took the directorial duties of the first live action Transformers movie under the guidance of Steven Spielberg.

Speaking of which, this February marks the 10th anniversary of the script written for the 1st Transformers Live Action Movie.

So we can say Happy Birthday to both Michael and the Transformers Movie Franchise as well.

ToyWorld TW-06 Evila Star "Astrotrain" In-Package Pics
Posted by News Fetcher on February 16 '15 at 08:16 PM
By Sentinel from TFW2005:
Continuing on with the surge of Third-Party releases prior to the Chinese New Year, we have in-hand, in-package pictures of the newly renamed ToyWorld Evila Star (Astrotrain) courtesy of ToysZone on Weibo.

Scaled to be either a very large Classics figure but more likely to fit into your Masterpiece collection, Evila Star has more of a toy-accurate aesthetic than cartoon accurate, but he also features some very impressive engineering to create three very convincing modes. You'll be hard pressed to pick your favorite.

Cancelled Universe G2 Megatron and Triggerhappy Concept Art
Posted by News Fetcher on February 16 '15 at 11:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Erik Araña, who previously worked as a designer with Hasbro, has shared some concepts of some exclusive Transformers designs which never saw the light of day.

The first of these designs was a Generation 2 style Megatron, using the Universe Galvatron as a base. For this release, Erik designed a head inspired by Megatron in the then-current IDW comics, and a sword weapon based on the original Japanese Megatron release.

The second was a version of classic character Triggerhappy, using Universe Cyclonus. Triggerhappy would have moved the quad cannons from the sides of the jet / robot arms to the robot's head, and these could swivel down to give Triggerhappy ear-mounted firepower! Plus the general head design looks particularly awesome.

Both the Megatron and the Triggerhappy were cancelled early in the process, before any sculpts were done. It's a pity, because while the Galvatron mold was weak, a Megatron one would have been a welcome addition, and the Triggerhappy looks plain cool. A big personal shout out and thank you to Erik for sharing these with the community.
