More Rare Items on eBay - Clear TM Primal & More
Posted by News Fetcher on August 08 '14 at 08:15 AM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
eBay seller and forum member starwarsprotos is continuing to drop rare and unreleased items on eBay, and there are some goodies up right now and ending soon. The one of major interest is a clear, boxed, Beast Wars Transmetal Optimus Primal. Clear "test shots" or "lunch time specials" really picked up in the 2000's with Takara's G1 reissues, so seeing a pure clear Beast Wars figure from the 90s is indeed rare. Paperwork from the factory to a former Hasbro employee is shown and included. Check out all the pics for this and his other auctions below!

Unrealized Megatron Design from Aaron Archer
Posted by News Fetcher on August 07 '14 at 11:01 AM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Former lead designer for the Transformers brand, Aaron Archer, has posted an unrealized design for a Megatron toy. This design was kicked around by Archer in 2002 or 2003. Had this become a full realized toy, it may have ended up in the Armada toyline. The design itself features Megatron with several large spikes on his shoulder and ginormous forearms. Archer mentions that he thinks this was supposed to be a bomber or space shuttle.

Take a look at this incredibly menacing looking Megatron after the break! Aaron Archer will be in attendance at NJCC on August 17th and at TFcon Chicago October 24th-26th.

TFC Toys Hercules - Downsized?
Posted by News Fetcher on August 07 '14 at 10:46 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
TFC Toys have shown off a downsized version of their first combiner, the not-Devastator Hercules, in pictures of a display shown on their Weibo account. The pictures are small but show a Hercules who is a fraction of the size of the original - one that stands perhaps slightly taller than a limb of the Prometheus combiner.

Exactly what is this guy - and what will it be in scale with? He just might be scaled for the Legends class figures - which seems to be a new thing among third parties along with Masterpiece scale - but will it work for you? Share your thoughts after the break.

DX9 Toys have updated their Facebook page with some in-hand images of the final version of their Splinter figure. A reworked version of Salmore, Splinter is an unofficial take on Wreck-Gar scaled to a similar size as the Masterpiece Autobots. It's worth noting that he does not include the classic Wreck-Gar axe weapon though. Check out the images and see what you think.

By Jacer from TFW2005:
A user over at the Transformers Addicts Facebook group page posted a couple in-hand images of the upcoming EX Wheeljack. This Wheeljack is a repaint of the cancelled movie All-Stars Wheeljack with a more G1 accurate paint scheme on his hood. Sadly this Wheeljack does not appear to have any weapons, much like Dark Side Soundwave.

Transformers: Lost Age Interviews - Drift, The Franchise And More
Posted by News Fetcher on August 07 '14 at 07:45 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Transformers: Lost Age (Japanese movie release of Transformers: Age Of Extinction) is out now in Japan.

Japan Times has published an article today where director Michael Bay explains Autobot Drift and more.

"You put a medieval knight in front of the camera and it now looks (a bit) cliched, it looks outdated," Michael Bay says. "But the samurai look, of course we know it’s historical yet it looks so modern."

"You look at some of the older Japanese movies with samurai characters in them and you can visualize them as robotic," he says. "They look . . . streamlined, mechanical and practical."


The director also talked about the Franchise:

"I understand the need to draw an audience of kids and the global considerations, but I wanted to be involved with something that had a longer-lasting, even cerebral appeal. And I don’t want to be tied — artistically or in people’s minds — to ‘Transformers’ after ‘Transformers,’ " Bay says, perhaps alluding to the series’ planned fifth installment.

You can read the rest of the article (which is quite lengthy and other cast members chime their views) at Japan Times.

Larger Images of Takara Legends Jetfire & Sky-Byte
Posted by News Fetcher on August 07 '14 at 05:15 AM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
Thanks to Agabyss Twitter page, we have some larger images of the previously-reported Takara Legends Jetfire and Sky-Byte figures!

These photos confirm our speculation that Sky-Byte is done up in more metallic colors in addition to having a few extra paint apps, and Jetfire has indeed ditched the chrome in favor of flat red, and has also gained back the paint apps that we had seen on the Hasbro version originally back when it was first revealed.

Mech Ideas Techno Toon Titans Bluster and Trench In-Hand Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on August 06 '14 at 12:31 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Mech Ideas have just released their Techno Toon Titans Bluster and Trench, aka Animated style Huffer and Pipes. The duo are based on designs created by Derrick J Wyatt for the Transformers Animated show, but never saw official toys from Hasbro. Mech Ideas picked up that baton and ran with making their own take on the Animated style, starting with the duo of Huffer and Pipes - a pair of figures that are not without their flaws, but do manage to capture a lot of the same spirit and style of the Transformers Animated designs.

We've got some in-hand shots of this two pack, which started out as some quick pics to share with you guys and quickly grew into a full gallery of both figures - check them out below!

Revoltech Dark of the Moon Optimus Prime Renewal Version
Posted by News Fetcher on August 06 '14 at 11:31 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Online retailer Anime-Export has put up a listing for a new run on Kaiyado's Revoltech Movie Optimus Prime. Based on his appearance in Transformers Dark of the Moon, this Optimus balanced a detailed sculpt with frankly an insane amount of poseability. According to the listing, this new run on Optimus Prime comes in "renewed packaging", though there are no pictures of what that might be.
