DX9 Mini-Devastator Prototype Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on April 19 '15 at 08:15 AM
By Sentinel from TFW2005:
We have news of a highly anticipated addition to the Legends-class War in Pocket line from third-party producer DX9. Posted on weibo by user ToysHome, DX9 has released prototype pictures of their attempt at a miniature Devastator.

So far this is only a partial reveal as the only figures that can been seen are the upper torso and arms of Devastator with the legs conspicuously missing. One thing to note is that this project appears at first glance to incorporate the combiner kibble into the figures for a non-parts-forming combiner.

It's unknown what the price point or anticipated release date will be for this project, but DX9's previous Legends-sized releases have been in two-packs, so it's not unreasonable to expect the same here, although a gift pack release is possible as well.

Make the jump to our boards to discuss this fun-sized project.

Technology Behind The Colombian Transformers: Age Of Extinction Digital Signage Projection Explained
Posted by News Fetcher on April 18 '15 at 06:45 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
An interesting article has popped up on the Digital Signage Today. The article explains the technology behind the Colombian Transformers: Age Of Extinction Digital Signage Projection; which displayed Transformers related product promos at the Calima shopping mall in Bogotá during the run of the 4th movie.

"LPX worked with projection mapping specialists Big Video, who designed a matrix of six Christie Roadster S+20K (3DLP technology, 20,000 lumens, SXGA+ resolution) and two Christie Roadster S+10K-M (3DLP, 11,500 lumens, SXGA+) projectors. Two S+20Ks were used to cover each side of the façade with the main part divided vertically into two areas, each one covered by one S+20K and one S+10K-M.

The video screened on the façade lasted seven minutes and contained fragments of the movie and promotional contents from the sponsors (General Motors, Hasbro, Oreo, Paramount and the Calima shopping mall). The projection mapping display played four times each night over three days, drawing an average of 350 spectators per show."


A recording of the Digital Signboard in action is available for you to watch, after the jump.

Shia LaBeouf Recalls The Transformers Live Action Movies
Posted by News Fetcher on April 17 '15 at 08:45 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Actor Shia LaBeouf who attended the Tribeca 2015 Film Festival yesterday, recalled the time he worked on the Transformers Live Action Movies. Reporters who attended the event stated that his statement was more of a criticism.

"Bumblebee never sounds real, it's just a f—ing name. The name alone you can never make real, no matter how much you put into it, because on the other side, you have a director who doesn't believe it either. So when you work with certain directors who give over and do something that's presentational and you both believe it, then there is no f—ing around, and you really are in this alternate universe."

With plans of a Transformers Cinematic Universe on the horizon, what do you think of this statement made? Fire away your thoughts, on the thread associated with this news post

New Transformers Watch found at Walmart
Posted by News Fetcher on April 17 '15 at 01:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here is a fun little thing for those who like to incorporate Transformers into their daily lives in a functional way - Walmart are currently carrying a new Transformers watch. This timepiece features the Autobot symbol above the digital display, and also comes in a red display box adorned with the Autobot symbol.

It's a cool oddity for those who like to take their Transformers collecting beyond the toys, shows and comics - for us, though, the Generation 1 era watch, Time Warrior, will always be the definitive Transformers timepiece!

New pictures of Masterpiece Tracks, Unite Warriors Superion and Menasor and More
Posted by News Fetcher on April 16 '15 at 12:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
At a recent Takara-Tomy business meeting, there was an exhibition of upcoming releases. A prototype of the sublime looking Masterpiece Tracks was on show, along with Gold Bumblebee.

The Unite Warriors line was also shown, with both Superion and Menasor represented - however, Menasor was the Hasbro one rather than the altered deco (with Wildrider) rather than the modified deco that will be offered as a set in Japan.

Check out the images attached to this post, courtesy of Hobbylog. Their coverage also includes a look at Takara-Tomy's other new transforming robot line, the train-robot series Shinkarion.

The next DeNA Transformers: Legends event; Best Of Episode - S.O.S. Dinobots, is now live. This is a rerun of the original S.O.S. Dinobots Event.

"In the aftermath of the clash between Megatron and Optimus Prime, the Autobots stand with their backs against the wall. With the power vacuum left behind by the clash between Megatron and Optimus Prime and with their hands full trying to protect the innocent humans, the Autobots are struggling to save themselves from disaster!

Without Optimus Prime’s leadership and strength in the battle’s ensuing chaos, Grimlock believes it’s time for him to step up. As he charges into the battle, the Decepticons feel a chill of fear when they hear echoing over the battlefield: “Me Grimlock king!”

The Dinobot’s limited intelligence but incredible strength make for an uncomfortable combination. Optimus considered shutting down the unpredictable Dinobots in the past before they could do harm to themselves or anyone else, but a sudden and devastating Decepticon attack forced him to reconsider. In the following battle the Dinobots proved that they are of immense value for the Autobots. Now the Autobots must call upon the might of the Dinobots once more, as only they can change the tide of their desperate battle.

The Decepticons fear the Dinobots for good reasons. Even the powerful Devastator could not stand against the ferocity and sheer stubbornness of the Dinobots!

Will the unpredictable Dinobots save the Autobots? Can the Dinobot’s tenacity bring down the Decepticons?

Find out in this week’s Episode: “S.O.S. Dinobots!”

Perfect Effect Leonidas Color Images

Perfect Effect has updated their Facebook page with some new color prototype images of their Leonidas, an unofficial take on Lio Convoy from Beast Wars Second, represented here as a full-mechanized version of the character. He's shown compared to several of the Takara-Tomy Masterpiece figures, though truth be told his aesthetic - which is part Gundam and part Zoid - lets him stand apart from most Transformers offerings and shine in his own right. Check out the new images attached to this post.
