By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
It's OFFICIAL, everybody!!! Hasbro has sent us a Press Release; stating clearly that they have indeed decided to air Transformers: Robots In Disguise on Cartoon Network.

The rumor which began early today, lit up the fandom. Hasbro has this to say:

"Robots in Disguise begins a brand new chapter in storytelling, filled with great humor, lots of fun adventure and animated in a cooler, lighter, brighter style that we know kids are going to really love," said Stephen Davis, president of Hasbro Studios and global entertainment & licensing for Hasbro, Inc.

Finn Arnesen, senior VP of global distribution and development for Hasbro Studios, commented, "As the regularly top-rated U.S. TV network in prime among Transformers' core audience of boys ages 6-11 and 9-14, our beloved Autobots and Decepticons will feel very much at home on Cartoon Network. And to seal our new partnership with Cartoon Network on the 30th anniversary of the Transformers franchise makes this a truly iconic event."

Transformers: Robots In Disguise Moved To Cartoon Network?
Posted by News Fetcher on October 07 '14 at 06:00 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Variety has reported (and taken down) a rather interesting article highlighting the possible future of Hasbro Studio's upcoming Animated Series; Transformers: Robots In Disguise.

But thanks to Google (who conveniently keeps a cache of old webpages) we have the content of the article which was posted few hours ago. In the article , it is stated that Transformers: Robots In Disguise will go on air on Cartoon Network rather than the newly rebranded Discovery Family (formerly known as Hub TV Network).

“We felt it was incumbent on us to take advantage of the opportunity to put it on a top rated network that performed well with boys,” Stephen Davis, president of Hasbro Studios and global entertainment & licensing for Hasbro, Inc told Variety.

“We have spent a lot of time listening to what kids like about Transformers and they haven’t been shy about giving us their opinions, and we have listened,” Davis said. “‘Robots in Disguise’ is reflective all that we have learned in our conversations with kids.”

The newly-formed 3rd party garage kit company, GCI, stopped by again to share prototype images of the recently announced set of add-on accessories for MP-20 Masterpiece Wheeljack. The photos mirrored here illustrate the wing attachment accessory included and show how these cannons can connect in both robot mode and in alt mode, further beefing up the attack mode of Masterpiece Wheeljack.

Also shown is the ability to attach to other figures, such as Masterpiece Lambor G2 version shown in the images.

Takara MP-24 Star Saber - Die-cast Parts Shown
Posted by News Fetcher on October 06 '14 at 07:00 AM
By StayingInTheBox from TFW2005:
Masterpiece Star Saber designer Hisashi Yuki continues to trickle in updates and teases for the fans of the upcoming Star Saber release. This time around Yuki tweeted a picture of the die-cast parts that will be incorporated into the Star Saber design. From the picture we can see the feet, antennas (not the antennas on Star Saber's head though), engine nozzles, gun barrels, etc. will all be die-cast. The addition of die-cast parts will undoubtedly help with the stability and sturdiness of this Masterpiece figure. As Optimus Primal once said: "Die Cast Construction ... It's a lost art."

Are you happy with the amount of die-cast? Should more or less be added?

Sound off after the jump and let us know what you think!

Two short but very cool videos have surfaced via YouTube showing off the magnetic snap on armor and voice box of the highly detailed Ultimetal Optimus Prime. No words will do justice for the sound the metal parts make when snapping onto the Prime body, or the Peter Cullen voice box with several Generation 1 phrases, so check out the videos for yourself and discuss away in the TFW forums!
