Posted by News Fetcher on July 14 '14 at 11:46 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Take this as a rumor for now. TFW2005 member Catz, who has never steered us wrong yet, has shared with us some listings for upcoming Platinum Edition releases in the Age of Extinction toyline. While some of the listings (like Autobots United) we've heard of before there are two new ones:

A First Edition Leader Optimus Prime with trailer, who comes with Stinger. Previously revealed in the Toys R Us computers, but this is the first we have heard of the mold choices... and Stinger.

A five pack of Dinobots in black and gray decos

Perhaps we shall learn more about these at the San Diego Comic Con?

TFW2005's Generations Voyager Roadbuster In-Hand Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on July 14 '14 at 01:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
For our next gallery update, we wish to share with you this gallery of Transformers Generations Roadbuster. The Wrecker made his debut in 1985 with a mold licensed from the Mugen Calibur from a series called Dorvack – now after a few redecos of other toys, he is here with his very own unique mold which pays homage to the original toy.

This new Roadbuster is a toy which is extremely fun to pick up and fiddle about with. He's got a simple transformation and a nice, striking deco, and good poseability (I found the hips a little obstructed sometimes though). For me the main draw were the six different weapons Roadbuster comes with, which can peg into different spots on both modes and each other to make new and bigger weapons. For those who like sticking up their Transformers, Roadbuster also sports a full sticker sheet, complete with a choice of Autobot or Wrecker faction stickers. He is, overall, a great addition to the Generations / Classics stable.

Check out the gallery below and see what you think:

Age of Extinction Legends Two Packs Released in Singapore
Posted by News Fetcher on July 14 '14 at 11:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We have a report from TFW2005 member CybertronStreak that the Age of Extinction Legends two packs are showing up at Singapore retail. These packs feature a Legion or Legends class toy from past movie lines or Transformers Prime's Cyberverse packaged with a larger toy. The packs include pairings such as Revenge of the Fallen Legends Optimus Prime with a redecoed Energon Cruellock as Grimlock and a Revenge of the Fallen Legends Sideways recolor as Stinger with a purple Beast Wars Neo Guiledart as Slug.

Hopefully this sighting in Singapore means these are not fair off a US release. A big thanks once again to CybertronStreak for the heads up.

Posted by News Fetcher on July 13 '14 at 02:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
As TFcon concludes today, we take a quick moment to round up some of the other third party items that were revealed this week but not shown off at TFcon:

Mecha Form, who are making one of the third party Skyfires, have thrown their hat into the dino robot ring and announced their own plans to make unofficial Dinobots. Kicking off are Gunk, Sneer and Plunge, who are unlicensed takes on Sludge, Snarl and Swoop. They will also be making a version of the character Paddles, a Pleisiosaur Dinobot from the compilation book Transformers Legacy.

Beelzeboss will be releasing a Sword of Judgement keychain. Based on the sword Optimus Prime wields in Transformers: Age of Extinction, it can be taken off the keychain and used as a weapon for any Transformer with a 5mm handgrip.

X2 Toys were at TFcon, but have revealed some more on their version of the Impactor character, which they're calling Firing Pin, and an upgrade for Generations Orion Pax:

Takara-Tomy Dinobot Micron Campaign Details
Posted by News Fetcher on July 13 '14 at 06:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Takara-Tomy have updated their Transformers prize campaign website with new images and details of the Transformers Dinobot Micron prize campaign.

The giveaway kicks off on July 19th, with the three Classics Mini-Cons Dinobots - and the dragon Mini-Con Nightscream - being available at various participating stores, in most cases being given away with a purchase of 3,000 yen or more on Transformers toys.

Of the four:

Ivan, the orange T-Rex and redeco of Classics Terrorsaur, is a Toys R Us Japan exclusive, available with a purchase of 3,000 yen or more on Transformers toys.

Paulie, the blue pteranadon and redeco of Classics Swoop, is an Aeon exclusive. This one is available with a purchase of either LA-01 Battle Command Optimus Prime, AD-01 Optimus Prime or AD-20 Black Knight Grimlock

Thunderlips, the purple triceratops and redeco of Classics Knockdown, is a Joshin Kids Land exclusive, available with a purchase of 3,000 yen or more on Transformers toys.

Sling, the green and yellow dragon and redeco of Classics Nightscream, is exclusive to a whole bunch of stores and given away with a purchase with a purchase of 3,000 yen or more on Transformers toys. Participating stores giving away Sling include Edieon toy counter, Best Denki, Yamada Denki and Yodobashi Camera.

For those wondering "what's with the Rocky names on those Dinobots", during the production of Transformers: Age of Extinction, the Dinobots were given codenames - Grimlock was Ivan, Strafe was Paulie and Slug was Thunderlips. Evidently someone at Takara-Tomy liked those names enough to put them on their latest prize campaign figures.

TFCon 2014 is under way, happening now up in Canada. Their attendee figure is a KFC tapebot repaint named Pestilence. The folks at TFCon were kind enough to hook us up with a copy, so we're sharing some high res pics with you today. Check em out after the break, and if you're up in the Toronto area, get over to TFCon now!

TFCon 2014 is in full swing, and lots of 3rd Party companies are showing off their goods, some even releasing new product at the show with no warning! We'll try to round up what we find from the show, as we don't have dedicated staff there. If you're there, feel free to share your pics on the Boards and we'll add them to this round up post!

Included inside are:

Mastermind Creations Fembots
Mastermind Creations Prominion
Maketoys Pandinus
Maketoys Quantron
Maketoys Guardia
Fansproject Columpio

Props to G.I. Eddie, Vangelus, daimchoc, deceptigar and more from the 2005 Boards for sharing.

Stay tuned for the TFCon product panel later this afternoon too!
