TFcon Toronto 2014 attendee exclusive revealed: PESTILENCE
Posted by News Fetcher on July 11 '14 at 07:15 AM
By Super_Megatron from TFW2005:
ALLEGIANCE: DESTRONS
FUNCTION: TOXIN CREATION

One of the many drones created by TOXIN to watch his skidplate while he plots something bigger then his fellow Destrons can ever understand. PESTILENCE much like the cyber laser he was forged from, is fast, exact and sharp. When many of these units are together, their AI become one and try to work as a team to destroy their target. Wearing 2 turbo boots on each side of it’s super structure helps PESTILENCE get that jolt of speed needed to knock-down it’s prey before snuffing out it’s spark or dragging it’s shell of a body to TOXIN for some experiments. Due to it being a drone, it’s not used to unique situations or bots that are straight up unpredictable. While in groups, their AI will try to work together, but also makes all surrounding units function in a similar fashion, making the pack as a whole very easy to read.

TFcon Toronto – The world's largest fan-run Transformers convention will take place this weekend July 11th to 13th, 2014. TFcon will return to the Delta Meadowvale Hotel and Conference Centre to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Transformers. TFcon Toronto advance registration is now closed, but tickets will be available at the door.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Jagex have sent us an update about their Transformers Universe MOTA game. Continuing their celebrations of the game hitting its Open Beta stage, Jagex will be having a second double XP weekend along with other special events.

What are those events? First of all, the previously announced contests - to achieve a high skill score in one of three brackets, or to invite friends to the game - will continue to run through the second double XP weekend. Full details on the contests can be viewed here - Skill Score contest - and here - recruit-a-friend contest.

Second, a further eight hour live stream session will kick off at 11am PDT / 2pm EDT. The first part of the session will involve Jagex's best internal players taking on all challengers from the community. The second part of the stream at 8pm EDT shifts to Jagex's US team and the game's combat designer Chris Bourassa, who will be taking questions via Twitch and giving a masterclass in playing as various characters including Catapult and Mismatch. As always you can check out all of this on the Transformers Universe Twitch stream.

Last but by no means least, Jagex has issued a patch which addresses which some were reporting in last week's double XP weekend, including issues with the servers and the matchmaking. Full details on the patch are available here - Transformers Universe July 10th Patch.

Generations Sky-Byte In Hand High Res Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on July 10 '14 at 08:00 AM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
Generations Sky-Byte is officially out in the wild, dropping in Hong Kong last week and set to start trickling out to US retailers later this month. I personally couldn't do the slow torturous waiting game, not knowing if my local spots would even stock him since they're still sitting on piles of Blitzwing and Springer. It's been a good run for RID this month, first PEDX04, then our Lucky Draw Fire Convoy, and now Generations Sky-Byte. Check out over 60 HQ shots of him at his gallery link below, then discuss on the forums!

Lastly Felipe León Nájera of Transformers Colombia has shared some images of a Transformers Rescue Bots Silver Force two pack. The set contains redecos of the 3 inch PVC figures of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, who sport their signature colors alongside silver limbs. While not specified on the box this set has the feel of an exclusive to it - perhaps we shall learn if that is true and if so, where, from the San Diego Comic Con in a few weeks time?

Construct Bots Dinobot Riders Starscream and Galvatron Images
Posted by News Fetcher on July 09 '14 at 10:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Also via Transformers Colombia we have a look at the Construct Bots Dinobot Riders Galvatron and Starscream. These two mini figures are scaled to ride on the backs of the larger Dinobot figures. Notably this Construct Bots Dinobot Rider Starscream is the Movie-themed Construct Bots first venture into characters not in Transformers: Age of Extinction - an indication of the direction the line might take going into next year, perhaps?

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Some images have been posted by Felipe León Nájera in the Transformers Colombia Facebook group showing off a couple of new releases in the Transformers Hero Mashers line. The figures shown are Dinobot Slug and Soundwave, both based on their Generation 1 incarnations. Slug like Grimlock is shown in his dinosaur mode, while Soundwave is in his robot mode. These are both part of the "deluxe" series of Hero Mashers which include additional parts to further customize the figures - Slug has a Snarl tail and Soundwave has a Sideswipe arm. A portent of what is to come or just cool extras?

Transformers Legends Optimus Primal and Rattrap New Images
Posted by News Fetcher on July 09 '14 at 02:16 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Takara-Tomy's Hisashi Yuki has shared a set of new images of the upcoming Convoy and Rattle figures from the new Japanese Transformers line, Transformers Legends, on his TFYuki Twitter Account.

The duo of Maximals, who are being released under their original Japanese names as opposed to the western names Optimus Primal and Rattrap, are redecos of the 10th anniversary reissue of Beast Wars Ultra class Optimus Primal and the new Transformers Generations Rattrap. Both feature new decos compared to their previous releases - and Rattle is perhaps a bit more show accurate than Hasbro's Rattrap.

Check out the new images after the break and see what you think.

A pair of new Transformers Rescue Bots toys have begun appearing at US retail. These are the duo of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee as dinosaurs! Optimus Prime is now a T-Rex, while Bumblebee is a raptor!

Both of these Rescue Bots are retailing for $11.49, making this a smaller "basic" release of Optimus Primal compared to the larger $35 one previously released. A big thanks to TFW2005 member Acid Wing for letting us know these have arrived in stores such as the Brooklyn Bay Parkway TRU.

Mobage Announces New Changes To Transformers: Legends Mobile Game
Posted by News Fetcher on July 09 '14 at 11:30 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Mobage has announced some major changes to the Transformers: Legends mobile game.

First up is a new Deck Management feature. This will allow the user to create multiple decks and deploy appropriate decks to suit the Episode.

Next is a new Weapon Abilities and Specialization Bonus. From next episode onwards, new weapon card will be available with new abilities. The abilities include:

HEALING CLUSTER I: This weapon ability has a chance to heal your allies.

ARMOR PIERCING: This weapon ability has a chance to negate all of an opponents defense.

HEROIC CHARGE I: This weapon ability has a chance to bolster your allies stats.

In addition to these new weapon abilities, TRANSFORMERS character cards now gain a damage bonus against opposing Specializations.
The three types of Specializations include the normal melee and ranged as well as a 3rd new type, Heavy. In battle, Heavy specializations will do more damage to Ranged Specializations, Ranged will do more damage to Melee, and Melee will do more damage to Heavy.


And Finally... Battle Chest; an upgrade to the existing Space Bridge and changes the way you obtain the cards.
Mobage states: Think of Battle Chest like a big box of 100 cards. You can get either 1 card, 10 cards, or 25 cards from the box. Once you get that card, it’s no longer in that Battle Chest. You can see what cards you’ve collected from the Battle Chest already by clicking the CARD LIST button.
