TFW's Generations Rattrap Gallery Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on June 11 '14 at 02:31 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Next up in our galleries of upcoming Transformers Generations toys we have a look at the wisecracking Maximal rat - it's Generations Rattrap!

Rattrap was one of the original five Maximals introduced in Beast Wars on board the Axalon. Masterfully voiced by Scott McNeil, Rattrap was a pessimistic Maximal known for sighing and saying "we're all gonna die" when faced with impossible odds - usually before making a major stand and playing a role in making sure everyone came back in one piece.

Rattrap's original toy was one of the first Beast Wars releases, a flipchanger Basic, but here, Rattrap has got the full Deluxe class upgrade, and what an upgrade! Much like Rhinox and Waspinator, Rattrap has been given a wonderfully show accurate design for his new toy, right down to the way his backpack folds up onto his back. There are a lot of cool features in the transformation such as how the rear beast mode legs transform into the robot mode legs. Compared to his wavemate, Tankor, Rattrap is a real puzzle of a toy, requiring some careful alignment of parts to get everything clipped in properly in beast mode. Rattrap's gun is based on a weapon the Maximals used in the show, and it can break down into two smaller pistols as well, so there are plenty of display options with it there. He's also got a flip-up panel in his arm which has a little bomb pop out, again modeled on a feature of the character in the show, another nice touch. One thing that scares me a bit with my Rattrap are the shoulders - because they are tight, trying to move them sometimes makes it feel like the parts they are attached to are being tugged instead, which might risk a breakage down the line if you're unlucky.

Transformers Fan Experience 20 June 2014 Details Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on June 11 '14 at 02:01 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A press release has been issued for the Transformers Fan Experience event being held at Universal Studios Hollywood next week! On 20 June the event provides fans - including Botcon 2014 attendees - a chance to experiece Transformers the Ride, rock out with Stan Bush, photo ops with Optimus Prime, Megatron and Bumblebee. There will also be a panel with the Hasbro Transformers brand team, which we are told will include a preview of some yet-to-be seen merchandise! How much this runs with the Botcon Hasbro product preview panel we do not know, but we suspect that the Fan Event may focus on the Age of Extinction line, while the Botcon product preview might be focusing on the Generations line and the collector-oriented segments of the line. With just over a week to go, we will not have to wait in suspense for long!

Licensed Transformers Faction Symbol 3D Deco Lights
Posted by News Fetcher on June 11 '14 at 01:46 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here is something sweet you can use to add some character to your man-cave. 3D Light FX have unveiled their Transformers: Age of Extinction tie-in 3D Deco Lights. These wall-mounted lights come with funky 3D "crack" decals to make it look like the symbol of your choice is exploding through the wall. The lights themselves - available in Autobot or Decepticon versions - glow and pulse in either red or purple, red for Autobot and purple for Decepticon. They are pretty cool - and 3D Light FX do a bunch of other cool lights including Iron Man, TMNT and the classic "car crashing through wall" if you fancy something different from Transformers.

New Images of Unknown Prime Arcee Redeco
Posted by News Fetcher on June 11 '14 at 01:46 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards member Jigga has shared some new images of the mysterious Transformers Prime Arcee redeco with us. This redeco is somehow connected with Botcon - it comes in a bag marked "Botcon 2013" - and it shares a deco with the recently released Trans-mutate exclusive. You might also notice she's sporting a Maximal emblem, like Trans-mutate.

Some are speculating this might, somehow, be a Botcon 2014 exclusive which is leaked. Our view though is that the TCC would not devalue one of their own exclusives, especially not so close to the time of its release. Our thought is that this is probably a mold color test - possibly to see how well the mainline Robots in Disguise version of the Prime Arcee toy looked in the colors. That said, given we knew last year that the TCC's Trans-mutate was going to use the First Edition Arcee toy, perhaps what you are looking at here is a case of Hasbro's factory getting their work instructions wrong and using the wrong Arcee for a limited first run of Trans-mutates.

Whatever the real reason is, check out the pictures that Jigga has kindly provided, attached to this post.

Transformers Protectobots Emergency Response and Evac Squad Multipacks
Posted by News Fetcher on June 11 '14 at 05:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Via Kiya Hayashi on Facebook, we have a look at two new Transformers multipacks. We're not sure what series these sets will go in, since one set uses molds from Transformers Prime and the other a mix of Movie and Classics. They are the Protectobots sets. The main set seen here is the Protectobot Emergency Response set, which uses Transformers Prime Ratchet as First Aid and Beast Hunters Prowl as "Streetsmart" (nee Streetwise), with a Cyberverse Legion Prime Arcee as Groove.

The Evac Squad consists of Revenge of the Fallen Blaze Master as Blades and a Universe Inferno / Reveal the Shield Grappel variation as a red Hot Spot - so possibly taking a cue from Guard City there. The image is small but it is clear the Grappel crane arm is getting used, though whether the rest of the toy uses the Grappel tooling, the Inferno tooling or even the GDO Hot Spot alternate head is not clear.

We've no further information on these toys as yet. Given they are giftsets, they are likely store exclusives. We may learn more at Botcon next week, or at the SDCC in July. As always, watch this space for more information.

Fans Toys has been making mass produced custom transformable pieces for a while now, starting way back in the mid-2000's with their Trailer for 20th Anniversary Op. More recently they've put out Quakewave, a purple space gun that looks familiar.

Next up for them is Scoria, an Iron Dibot, which compliments Masterpiece Grimlock from Takara/Hasbro quite well. We've got final production Scoria in hand and have done up almost 100 high res shots of him in action with his brothers. We'll forgo a proper review and let the pics speak for themselves, but feel free to ask questions in the thread and we will try to answer. Check em out after the break and discuss!
