30 Years Of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee DVD's
Posted by News Fetcher on January 22 '15 at 06:45 AM
By Matty from TFW2005:
In celebration of the 30 years of Transformers, two DVDs will be released this March to highlight two of the franchise's most iconic: Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.

Each DVD will feature the character from various cartoons they appeared in, including G1, the Unicron Trilogy, Animated, and Transformers Prime. The running time listed for each DVD is 88 minutes, so for just under $15 USD you'll likely be getting four episodes per character.

Here's the descriptions we have so far.

Optimus Prime:
Take a look back at the leader of the Autobots and the defender of Earth in this special DVD release. Featuring episodes from Generation 1, Unicron, Animated, and Prime.

Bumblebee:
Everyone's favourite Autobot shows what he can across three popular Transformers series. The plucky 'Goldbug' is in full voice as he takes on the evil Decepticons in Generation 1, Animated and Prime.

Check it out after the jump.

Takara Transformers Unite Warriors UW-01 Superion Revealed - Slingshot Confirmed!
Posted by News Fetcher on January 21 '15 at 07:45 PM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
Via the Planet Iacon Facebook page, we have our first full look at Takara's version of Superion, the first in their new Unite Warriors line (Takara's version of Hasbro's Combiner Wars). As many had been speculating, he does indeed include the missing member of the Aerialbots, Slingshot, rather than his replacement Alpha Bravo. Slingshot, as many had also been speculating, appears to be a retool/redeco of Firefly. Superion himself seems like he will be sold as a gift set, being labelled as "UW-01". The individual Aerialbots feature many deco differences from their US counterparts for increased G1-accuracy, also with Superion possessing white hands and feet rather than the black ones of the US release.

Also featured is our first look at Takara's version of Robots in Disguise Warrior/Deluxe Bumblebee, who looks to be largely unchanged from his Hasbro release.

TFW's Combiner Wars Thundercracker In-Hand Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on January 21 '15 at 03:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Ever since All Hail Megatron, IDW's version of Thundercracker has been one of the most interesting characters in the Transformers comics, and it's a depiction that's earning him not one but two new toys this year. Today we're taking a look at the smaller of the two, the Legends class Thundercracker.

This Thundercracker is based on the F-22 design that was designed by E.J. Su for IDW, back when IDW took up the reins on the comics, and it's a straight-up redeco of the excellent Legends class Starscream mold that was released in early 2014. It's a mold that features a simple but pleasing transformation, and a decent range of articulation. The deco is excellent, and arguably works far better on this toy than it did on Starscream.

While not as awesome as Powerglide or Bombshell, this Thundercracker is an excellent example of how to do a redeco. Legends class Skywarp to finish the Seeker trio, please, Hasbro?

Check out the gallery at the link below and see what you think of this fun toy:

Rescue Bots Season 3 Episodes 11-14 all airing on 1 February?
Posted by News Fetcher on January 21 '15 at 03:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
This one is a bit of a mystery, so take it as a rumor for now.

TV listings including Zap2it and LocateTV are listing that the next four all-new episodes of Transformers Rescue Bots are all set to air on 1 February. Four episodes, back to back, starting at 7am, if this is to be believed.

The four episodes listed are Season 3 Episode 11 Did you see what I thaw?, 12 The Attack of Humungado, 13 Thieves Like Us and 14 Time After Time.

Take this as you find it - the listings on Zap2it are unclear on the latter three episodes, and we have reports that at least one fellow fan is seeing the first four episodes in these slots on their DVR. But if you're a Rescue Bots fan, you may want to set these up to record, just in case new episodes do show up at the given times.

Rescue Bots Season 1 Box Set Confirmed for Australia
Posted by News Fetcher on January 21 '15 at 03:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Further to our earlier report, Beyond Home Entertainment has now confirmed that they will be releasing a complete Season 1 DVD boxed set for Transformers Rescue Bots. The set collects all 26 episodes of the show's first season, and is expected to be released on 2 March 2015.

Beyond Home Entertainment has also posted a listing for a DVD "Serve and Protect", which is also due to be released on 2 March 2015, and is expected to feature 7 episodes, based on the DVD's runtime of 154 minutes. It's thought that these will be the first seven episodes of the show's second season, given that Beyond are releasing DVDs with the show's entire run in order.

US fans, you may wish to find a way of importing these if you want the whole run of Transformers Rescue Bots on DVD, as Shout! Factory have announced they have no plans to do complete season boxed sets for the US.

Robots in Disguise Fixit and Optimus Prime Video Clips
Posted by News Fetcher on January 21 '15 at 03:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The official Transformers Youtube account has updated with a pair of new video clips from the new show, Robots in Disguise. First up is a clip focusing on the more comedic elements of the show via the comic relief character, Fixit - though as the clip shows, there's much more to him than we do justice with in that brief statement.



Next up is a clip featuring Optimus Prime - you might consider this one a bit of a spoiler, so view with caution:



The Transformers Youtube page has also updated with the clips previously posted on Transformers.com.

Dr Q Babylock - l'il Grimlock!
Posted by News Fetcher on January 21 '15 at 02:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
There's always been a trend toward making young, baby or "chibi" versions of characters as long as we can remember - from Young Indiana Jones to the Muppet Babies. Now it seems via third party Dr Q, a subline of Dr Wu, Transformers is getting a new take on this concept, starting with Grimlock. "Babylock", as this unlicensed piece is known, is a take on what a baby version of Grimlock might look like - assuming Grimlock ever was a baby and not just built by Wheeljack and Ratchet in a cave on Earth. Check out the images attached to this post and see what you think.

Here is something rather cool we thought we might share with you. Geekologie reports that a software engineer, Craig Kovatch, has made an Optimus Prime stained glass window. More amazing, this is his very first such stained glass window! It's made of 122 pieces of glass, and looks suitably spectacular. Check it out and see what you think.
