Thanks to TFW2005 member Nevermore
for linking us to new product images of the Robots In Disguise One-Step Changer Drift, Fracture and Thunderhoof. We previously saw photoshopped versions of these figures back at Toy Fair
, so these new images are much closer to what can be expected on store shelves.
Check them out after the jump.Read Replies (0)

It's no secret by now, The Hub Network simply did not pan out as planned. When launched, many Transformers fans had high hopes for the Hasbro owned TV network. Unfortunately as time went on, a short amount of time, reality set in that The Hub was simply not making money fast enough. Adweek
ran a story about the rise and fall of Hasbro's TV attempt, specifically "what went wrong with The Hub, and what the toymaker hopes will go right" in the near future.
With Robots In Disguise premiering on Cartoon network on March 14
, this may be a good time to revisit the background of The Hub's downfall with interview pieces from Hasbro executives and other industry leaders, while also taking a look at Hasbro's plan for the near future.Read Replies (0)

Coming off of the recently revealed Masterpiece Tracks prototype
image, we've just received a new scan of images from Tag Hobby

We've been following the progression of PlayWithThisToo
's upcoming action figure line here at TFW2005. While it isn't 100% Transformers related, it does have throwbacks to lines and themes we all grew up on and has several former Hasbro employees involved. For the past 6 months, new concept art for multiple characters have been revealed with the first physical prototype of Desolataur hitting as well. You can check updates and discussion for them all in the forums here
We wanted to remind everyone that the Kickstarter for this project starts this Friday, February 27th, at 9 AM. If they make any of these figures, how many, and what awesome little bonuses we get all depends on the level of support you show. So keep an eye out on their Facebook page and here this Friday for details on where and how to support the project.Read Replies (0)

Many likely watched the Oscars last night, celebrating the past year's notable achievements in Hollywood. Earlier in the weekend though, a different round of awards were given out, described as "Hollywood's annual tip of the hat for the worst screen achievements of the year" - The Razzies.
The latest live action Transformers film, Age of Extinction, took home two Razzie awards:
Kelsey Grammer for Worst Supporting Actor and Michael Bay for Worst Director. So a special congratulations to the two for their career defining awards for their contributions in Transformers Age of Extinction ...
In all seriousness, what does TFW think of the two Razzie awards? Deserving? Was AOE and Kelsey Grammer really that bad? Sound off after the jump and share your thoughts!Read Replies (0)

We have a new in-hand Transformers gallery for you. Hailing from the movie series by way of a Japan exclusive repaint, we have the Stinger
! Stinger features in Transformers Age of Extinction as a human-built Transformer, designed as a Bumblebee clone. With a striking and sinister red color scheme, Cliffjumper this is not!
Stinger is a straight-up redeco of the Age of Extinction new Camaro Bumblebee, which means the robot mode is more or less spot on for the appearance of the robot mode, although obviously the vehicle mode is not the on-screen Pagani. This may or may not prove to be a dealbreaker, as the deco itself is excellent, and we'd imagine most people would display in the robot mode, which looks great.
